 Interventionism: On The Proper Role Government (1 of 4) by Ludwig Von Mises Magazine
Interventionism means that the government does not restrict its activity to the preservation of order, or--as people used to say a hundred years ago--to "the production of security." Interventionism means that the government wants to do more.
Interventionism means that the government not only fails to protect the smooth functioning of the market economy, but that it interferes with the various market phenomena; it interferes with prices, with wage rates, interest rates, and profits.
Thus, all the measures of interventionism by the government are directed toward restricting the supremacy of consumers.

 The Culture of Interventionism
The question we have posed, what is it that makes interventionism permissible and acceptible in a culture that pretends to favor democracy and national sovereignty, would seem to lead us to interrogate the way in which "democracy and national sovereignty" are understood in the US.
Nationalism and interventionism, as structures of thought, appear to rely on a kind of historical unconscious, a dimension of cultural being that lies beneath them, that serve to render their rhetoric self-referential.
That is, interventionism defends sovereignty because it violates it; it establishes freedom because it dominates; it builds democracy because it dismantles it (by violating sovereignty and imposing external structure).

The interventionist state also reduces the freedom of the peaceful individual to pursue his ends as he finds most advantageous and instead makes him a pawn in the hands of the state.
The end product of interventionism, therefore, must be the undermining of the free society and a reduction in the material and spiritual benefits that are possible only in a free-market economy.

 RETHINKING CONSTITUTIONAL LAW
At the turn of the century, judicial interventionism was associated with the efforts of conservative justices to safeguard business and industry from excessive regulation, and political liberals and progressives championed the cause of judicial deference.
Although the case against judicial interventionism hinged upon a strong argument for judicial deference, conservative justices have, on occasion, engaged in conservative judicial interventionism.
The functional defense for nonoriginalist interventionism presumes, first, that originalism is not the only legitimate justification for judicial interventionism, and, therefore, that an interventionist judiciary is both legitimate and positive because it enhances the performance of government by improving decision making.

 PhilSci Archive - Interventionism in Statistical Mechanics: Some Philosophical Remarks
Interventionism is an approach to the foundations of statistical mechanics which says that to explain and predict some of the thermodynamic phenomena we need to take into account the inescapable effect of environmental perturbations on the system of interest, in addition to the system's internal dynamics.
The literature on interventionism suffers from a curious dual attitude: the approach is often mentioned as a possible framework for understanding statistical mechanics, only to be quickly and decidedly dismissed.
It then investigates some of the philosophical ideas underlying interventionism, and proposes that these may be the source of the resentment interventionism encounters.

 Making Socialism Work Better? by Robert Anderson
As is the case with many new forms of interventionism, Social Security legislation had minimal economic impact on the economy of the 1930's and 1940's.
What began as a modest form of interventionism in the midst of America’s "Great Depression" has become today a public financing nightmare with unfunded liabilities in excess of $45 trillion (when the Medicare nightmare is included too, as it must be).
The insatiable political appetite for ever more funds to cover the cost of this expanding Ponzi scheme finally led to everyone becoming a taxpayer victim as the net was cast wider to force additional workers/taxpayers into the system during the early years of the Reagan administration.

If interventionism is to be saved, it must first be saved from the interventionists.
Indeed, some of the leading exponents of the narrative, such as former Coalition Provisional Authority adviser Larry Diamond and James Fallows of The Atlantic Monthly, opposed the war from the beginning, and, of course, the incompetence line is politically appealing for liberals.
The liberal hawks’ view of interventionism -- and ours -- was formed by the experiences of the 1990s, when greater rather than lesser American engagement in the world and a frank recognition that American power could serve humanitarian ends seemed to be the basic moral imperatives of the age.

 Humanitarian Interventionism?
The failure of humanitarian interventionism in specific cases and the decline in its attractiveness as a concept and as a basis of policy-making should not however be solely attributed to isolated cases or to the cynicism of governments.
As a concept or principle of conflict management, humanitarian interventionism has been taken surprisingly seriously in journalistic, academic and political circles, although in political practice is has been little more than a tactical game for the attainment of domestic or external political advantages, thinly veiled by humanitarian rhetoric.
The real development of humanitarian interventionism will probably take an entirely different course: there will continue to be selective operations in response to public political pressure by societies in the North, even if these are unsystematic or haphazard.

 Book Review - Critique of Interventionism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Explaining the historical origins of the interventionist state and analyzing the negative and harmful effects of its implementation is the theme of Ludwig von Mises's Critique of Interventionism.
What Mises clearly saw and explained in the 1920s were the political, cultural, and ideological forces at work in Germany that were creating the conditions for the victory of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi movement in 1933.
While many of the forms and types of government intervention have changed since Mises penned the essays in Critique of Interventionism in the 1920s, the fundamental insights of his analysis remain as valid today as when he wrote them 70 years ago.

I see the right kind of interventionism as a logical extension to the internationalism that has always been a value of the left, as opposed to isolationism, which has always been a value of the right.
I believe that a 'left' interventionism is far more popular than isolationism, but also 'right' interventionism.
My main problems with the concept of 'interventionism' involve a) its arrogance, b) the difficulty of predicting the results of any meddling, and c) overridingly, the fact that it nearly always only occurs when it is politically and economically expedient for those doing the intervening.

 Interventionism: An Economic Analysis
What Mises had foreseen was a world trapped between fully planned economies, which were clearly failing, and fully free markets, which were a casualty of depression and war.
He warned that mixed systems give rise of political instability and economic stagnation, and proved that this was the case through a general model of interventionism and a specific analysis of price control, credit expansion, subsidies, welfare, corporatism, and the war economy.
Particularly interesting is his discussion of the draft, which he sees as a species of socialism itself.
