How Higher Education Wrecks Freedom

How Higher Education Wrecks Freedom

The push to force everyone into higher education has proven to be a massive diversion of financial and human energy, and, just like Schumpeter predicted, it did the cause of freedom no favors.

Missouri v. Biden: Free Speech in the Crossfire

Missouri v. Biden: Free Speech in the Crossfire

The case against the government here is that it cannot do through third parties such as social media platforms what it is forbidden from doing directly by virtue of the First Amendment. The case in question is popularly known as Missouri v. Biden, and there is much at stake with its results.

The Multifront Attack on Business Hero Elon Musk

The Multifront Attack on Business Hero Elon Musk

This Silence on The Fascist Response To Covid-19 Is Not Golden

This Silence on The Fascist Response To Covid-19 Is Not Golden

The Covid response ruined everything the world identified with America: freedom, rights, decentralism, commerce, individual liberty, and bravery in the face of trial.

Don’t Let Them Memory-Hole The Totalitarian Lockdowns of 2020

Don’t Let Them Memory-Hole The Totalitarian Lockdowns of 2020

What They Meant by Essential and Nonessential

What They Meant by Essential and Nonessential

Mr President, End These Covid-19 Travel Restrictions Now!

Mr President, End These Covid-19 Travel Restrictions Now!

For almost three years now, many wonderful artists, intellectuals, students, business professionals, and musicians have been locked out of US borders, even just to tour around and see this great land and meet up with friends. It’s simply barbaric and yet there it is.
