The problem is, “forgiving” debt doesn’t make it go away, it just shifts the burden. These “loans” effectively become grants, and the taxpayers are left footing the bill. This is a classic example of concentrated benefits and dispersed costs.
Professor Brian Simpson answers arguments against using Ayn Rand’s philosophy Objectivism as the basis for improving the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution.

“By eliminating the Department of Education…we cannot only reduce the budget but ensure that local needs and preferences, rather than the wishes of Washington, determine the education of our children.” – Ronald Reagan
“Scott Atlas stated the simple fact that immunity is higher than those with antibodies, whereupon Dr. Fauci criticizes him without contradicting what was actually said. Stating a simple scientific fact is not ‘extraordinarily inappropriate.’ What is going on?”
Ibram X. Kendi’s antiracism – like racism – is an ideology that manages to indoctrinate and segregate. Far from healing history’s wounds, Ibram X. Kendi’s “antiracism” sows disharmony. Maybe we should go back to reading liberalism to our children. By liberalism, I mean a cluster of ideas that includes equal freedom, equal treatment under the law, and colorblindness.
Religion’s alleged harmony with science is a fraudulent masquerade, extending only insofar as religious dogmas are not called into question.
The distinction evaded in the condemnation of Chris Rock’s joke and the apologetics for Will Smith’s act of violence is the difference between speech and physical force.
The act of interacting with a child with the objective of sexual abuse is called grooming.
Critical Race Theory is a Marxist collectivist view of race and justice. It is called “Marxist” because it shares the same basic philosophical views as Marxism except that class is replaced with race.
To be anti-merit is to be anti-happiness and anti-life. Such people truly belong in the wilderness. They should leave the life-lovers alone. – Edwin A. Locke
Some Montessori organizations are replacing Montessori critical thinking skills with indoctrination into Marxist ‘social justice’ propaganda. A Montessori teacher fights back.
Hitler did not regard himself as being either on the left or on the right, but wanted to overcome both extremes – not in the ‘middle’, however, but by a new extreme in which both were abolished.
The differences between President Calvin Coolidge’s results and Joe Biden’s results are like night and day. Coolidge closely reflected our Founders’ insights in what he wrote and said, which we would truly profit from, given how far we have deviated from those ideas in modern America.
“A Declaration and Constitution for a Free Society” modifies the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution to make them fully consistent with the protection of individual rights and freedom, using Objectivism—the philosophy of Ayn Rand. It demonstrates why a free society is morally, politically, and economically beneficial to human life.
That innovative black Americans flourished in late 19th- and early 20th-century America is a little-known part of our heritage.
Who were the towering heroes in both Great Britain and the United States responsible for so markedly improving human living conditions?
America’s Early Presidents Were Admirable Men of Principle– Let us Hope we can Find More Like Them
Capitalism enables some people to get rich faster than others and to Piketty that’s intolerable.
We should all be very careful with overruling long-standing advice given to you by culture or encoded into your genome, and be very careful when you meddle with complex adaptive systems that you don’t fully understand.
Ayn Rand left a legacy in defense of reason and freedom that serves as a guidepost for the American spirit–especially pertinent today when America and what it stands for are under assault.
Federal college subsidies have increased the cost of higher education, lowered its standards, created a labor market glut of graduates expecting “good” jobs because they’ve been to college, and led to a horde of people who can barely repay their college debt.
The desire of “spreading the wealth” and for government to plan and regulate people’s lives is as old as the utopian fantasy in Plato’s Republic.
As Ayn Rand put it, a value is something you act to gain or keep. A desire without action then is just a wish.
