Mozart, Mediocrity, and the Administrative State

Every highly productive person – we don’t even have to speak of geniuses here – often ends up surrounded by resentful and mediocre people who have too much time on their hands.

Both sides in the abortion debate invoke the principle of “rights.” Anti-abortionists claim to uphold a “right to life”; Pro-choice advocates a woman’s “right to abortion.” Neither side holds a rigorously defined theory of rights.

Why Is CDC Trying to Put a Mask on Your Face Again?

The massive political power for unelected bureaucrats to arbitrarily dehumanize Americans with mandates, fines, lockdowns, and prison at whim is what the Biden Administration, DOJ, and CDC are now fighting for.

The Unmasking of America

In my lifetime, I’m not sure I can remember a single other time when a federal government rule imposed upon an entire country, one that affected so many people on a daily basis, was suddenly declared to be completely illegal – not just newly illegal in light of new data but illegal all along.
