Was Lockdown Worth the Cost? 18-Month Quest to Find Out What the Data Says

Goal of this Project: to determine, over a 18-24 month period, to see what unambiguous scientific study and scientific research reveals about the efficacy and/or “cost” of global, national, and regional lockdowns. Hypothesis Attempted: I will desire, however, to bring a hypothesis to the forefront of this project and see if the data and scientific […]

The Tale of Two Brothers

There once lived two brothers named Dante and Peter. They were orphaned fairly young where they lived, just outside a small remote village far, far away. Dante was the younger brother and had bright eyes; Peter, the elder, had a timid spirit but a warm heart. They were the best of friends and kindred spirits. […]

Jordan Peterson’s Forward to the 50th Anniversary of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s Epic ‘The Gulag Archipelago’

The three volumes of The Gulag Archipelago — one continuous, extended scream of outrage — are, paradoxically, brilliant, bitter, disbelieving and infused with awe: awe at the strength characterising the best among us, in the worst of all situations. In that monumental text, published in 1973, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn conducted “an experiment in literary investigation” — a hybrid […]

Wake up, LP. Grow a Backbone!

The Libertarian Party has become such a joke recently. I seriously pray that changes for 2024. We need real LP leaders who actually stand for some principles Instead of virtue signaling on social media and posting ridiculous things about #blm or how “racism sucks” — vacuous statements that carry no substance at all and do […]

Primer: The Differences Between Democrats and Republicans

DEFINITIONS Democrats: A left-leaning political party full of bleeding-heart pansies who are all high on the devil’s lettuce. Republicans: A right-leaning political party packed with rednecks who love guns and God, in that order. ORIGINS Democrats: The Democratic party was founded as the dying wish of Karl Marx in 1883, who wanted to infiltrate the […]

You Might Be A Statist IF…

You might be a statist if… If any political discussion finds you regularly using the expression “it’s clear the government isn’t doing enough to ” … you might be a statist. If you’re left-leaning and see “the evil Right” as the cause of all major problems…you might be a statist. If you think the war […]

Political Memes are SO Stupid!!

What are memes? Urban Dictionary calls them “Popular quotes, images, and real people, which are copied, imitated, and spread all over the Internet(s)!” Interestingly enough, it neglects to mention that those quotes are generally made up, in order to emphasize a humorous or political point that contrasts with or embellishes the image they’re blazoned across. […]

Government and the Environment: a Role to Play?

In response to the anarachist or anarcho-capitalist argument that the government must take no role in environmental protectionism or defense of nature–that the free market will do it for us. And to attempt so is amoral if/when no property rights are infringed upon. So fundamentally here is a logical concern I have with the “anarchist […]

The ‘Wasted Vote’ Myth

The biggest objection to voting for a Third Party is the “wasted vote” argument — the idea that if you vote for someone who will not win, then the vote does not count. Join any third party and merely suggest that another person consider voting for a third party candidate and you will hear, ad […]

The Anti-Vote Movement

Why almost everyone (i.e. the uninformed, politically-ignorant masses) should stay home this November! Wearing an “I Voted” sticker on Election Day announces that you are a proud participant in the grand tradition of representative democracy, the worst system except all the others. It says “I care,” “I’m informed,” and perhaps also “this shirt is machine […]
