Rose is the Best Character from The Last Jedi

**SPOILERS AHEAD** Rose, from The Last Jedi is said to be the most hated Star Wars character since Jar Jar Binks. So perhaps I will ruffle a few tail feathers when I say she was my favorite character from the movie. I often say this on forums I frequent related to Geek culture (I am indeed a Geek, but you knew that) and my comments are often taken ironically. Which is really funny for me. I say h...

Libertarians don’t want you in their club

ron paul does not belong in the libertarian party
I've been thinking more and more about the Libertarian Party and the direction I've seen it moving. I don't personally feel that direction is very inclusive. I spend a lot of time of libertarian pages. I get accused of being a troll, of being a satire page, and sometimes just told to f-off. But I assure them, and all of you, my visits to those pages is done in all sincerity. Ron Paul, when I f...

The key to better policing: less powerful cops

Body Cam Footage
A couple of things. First, I don't believe that the officers in the case were recreating the scene. I honestly don't think that excuse is all that believable. To me that's as believable as a three-year old with chocolate on his face swearing he didn't eat the cake. Secondly, the statement from the chief should have gone without saying. “In light of recent events, you are reminded to activate y...

Law Keepers Vs Law Makers

The default state of all behaviors that do not infringe upon the rights of others should be liberty
Darn Cops! Here's a story for you. It's the story of a cop. The story of an undercover drug enforcement officer to be exact. Imagine him inside of a criminal organization having gained the trust of the drug dealer who sells to him. The cop's job is to get the drugs off the street and arrest the people selling it. He's worked very hard to get this deep into the organization and has literally riske...

Sometimes, Violence IS the Answer

What will next be heard?
Gandhi is often presented as the modern example of how non-violence works. Sometimes we are required to engage in violent acts in order to demonstrate our unwavering attachment to those rights our Creator has granted us. It is very often said that violence is never the answer. That of course is hog wash. To say that violence is sometimes the answer is not to say that violence is good or desirable...

The Reason Men Gather: Thoughts on Flag Burning

Liberty is why men gather
The below video is about a FedEx driver who sees a group of people protesting by burning the US flag. He's offended. He takes their flag. He stands up for what he thinks is right which in this instance is that they should not be permitted to burn the flag. Toward the end of the video someone says something very interesting. The below video should play right at the spot I'm discussing. htt...

Republicans: Your Message isn’t the Problem But There is a Problem

We got Tread on
Yesterday I wrote an article with the same title as this one, except it was about Democrats. Today it's the Republican's turn. I'm not letting them off the hook. I feel strongly that America is in a slump and yesterday I talked about part of why I feel the Democrats are to blame. The Republicans own just as much of the blame. They do not get a pass! I know it is popular to, and frankly easy, to de...

Amazon, Robots, Liberty, & Universal Basic Income

UBI so hot right now
There is a segment of the population that has what I consider an unreasonable, almost Luddite fear, that robots are going to take everyone's jobs away. I think a large part of this is actually just another excuse to push Universal Basic Income which is the latest fad and the current incarnation of communism. If you haven't heard if UBI it's simple, everyone gets a certain amount of cash each mo...

Agency is an Unalienable and Inherent Right

Give me liberty or give me death flag
What exactly is agency? It's another way of saying not only do you have liberty as an inherent right but you have the right to choose how you exercise that liberty. It is the right to consider alternatives and make choices without compulsion. This sounds like a pretty basic idea and hardly one worthy of much exploration. Of course no one can tell you what to do! But it's not that easy actually....

Progress Isn’t Natural – The Hell You Say?

Life goes on and life finds a way
Mr. Mokyr writes in the Atlantic that progress isn't natural, that humans invented it not too long ago. He gives many philosophical reasons for his thinking. Quotes some historians. They seem to agree that progress came about when people stopped caring about their ancestors. This was a departure from the beliefs of most societies in the past, which were usually given to some measure of “ancestor ...

Poverty is the Default State of Mankind & UBI Is Slavery

Dog with money in its mouth
I've read so many articles from those on the left and the right exploring the question, "What causes poverty?" One of my favorite authors, Robert Heinlein said, "Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man." This is actually an inarguable fact. It is objective reality. Man comes out of the womb perhaps less wealthy than any of the ruminants that inhabit our planet. A giraffe,...
