Loving the Unlovable
Post Date: 2023-03-25 06:49:24 by Charles_Byrd
Pro-life pregnancy centers may be a best-kept secret in America. But even more unknown are the hundreds of maternity homes, many that provide desperately needed help on a level that may surprise you. The false accusation is well known. “Anti-abortion people only care about the fetus. They don’t support women or the baby after delivery.” Click for Full Text!

Liberalism Needs No Enemies
Post Date: 2023-03-24 00:15:45 by Charles_Byrd
In his instructive political fable, The Awakening of Jennifer Van Arsdale, George Leef writes, “Liberalism is the one philosophy that requires no enemies… It minimizes conflict and calls upon people to resolve whatever problems arise through peaceful means.” By liberalism, Leef refers to the 17th-century movement that began to free individuals from entrenched interests, “from the constraints of the powerful institutions that dominated their lives—the interests of monarchs and church leaders and guilds.” Click for Full Text!

The Sun Rose Anyways
Post Date: 2023-03-21 18:37:17 by Charles_Byrd
When my kids were younger, shifting seasons carried a certain excitement. It meant new routines, an altered landscape, or digging through hand-me- downs in storage bins, with fall’s cooler air holding the greatest promise of change. Crisp skies, glowing leaves and the sounds of a football game— all seemed to charge my home with uncommon zest. For the past couple of years, though, I’ve struggled to feel that old excitement. Our world isn’t changing, except for the worse, it seems. Its news obscures the blooming visuals of nature’s happier alterations, even as the weather teases us with spring’s warmth and impending arrival. Click for Full Text!

E Verify is BS

The systemic attack and unrestricted warfare designed to abolish the United States and diminish the human population has many facets. Biological warfare, computer elections, supply chain attacks, dismantling energy supplies, food shortages, inflation, the surveillance police state, and a centralized digital bank currency, are just a few aspects of this all out assault. A virtual invasion via unfettered illegal immigration is also an important element to this campaign of asymmetrical warfare. Let’s hone in on the illegal immigration issue. Of course, this issue can simply be addressed by protecting our borders. Red flags went off shortly after the 911 attacks because instead of ...

Big Government is to blame for Silicon Valley Bank’s collapse
Post Date: 2023-03-17 02:42:56 by Charles_Byrd
President Ronald Reagan said that the nine most terrifying words in the English language were “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” Well, he’s been proved right once again, this time by the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB). The bank’s failure — the second-largest in U.S. history — was a direct result of its own gross mismanagement, combined with a series of well-intentioned government interventions run amok that created the conditions for its catastrophic failure.

The Silicon Valley Bank Bailout
Post Date: 2023-03-14 01:01:04 by Charles_Byrd
The Treasury and Federal Reserve stepped in late Sunday to contain the financial damage from Friday’s closure of Silicon Valley Bank, guaranteeing even uninsured deposits and offering loans to other banks so they don’t have to take losses on their fixed-income assets. This is a de facto bailout of the banking system, even as regulators and Biden officials have been telling us that the economy is great and there was nothing to worry about. The unpleasant truth—which Washington will never admit—is that SVB’s failure is the bill coming due for years of monetary and regulatory mistakes. Click for Full Text!

Julliard Cancelation Case Has a Soviet Twist
Post Date: 2023-03-07 19:08:44 by Charles_Byrd
In December, a German music magazine called VAN published claims that Robert Beaser, a professor at Juilliard since 1993 and chair of its composition department from 1994 to 2018, committed non-tactile sexual harassment against female students and offered assistance with professional advancement in a quid pro quo for possible romantic relations. Beaser’s late colleague Christopher Rouse, who died in 2019, was posthumously accused of similar conduct, and his living colleague, the composer John Corigliano, is alleged to have adopted a discriminatory policy of not working with female students.

Americans allegedly believe in justice. Our founders deemed the concept of justice as necessary for the preservation of our republic; defined as a free and just society, where preserving liberty and property was the only legitimate role of government. Consider our current system of justice, judgment by our peers. Trial by jury! Where information asymmetries should be eliminated or mitigated by the pre-trial discovery process. Where only facts are considered evidence. Where we can face our accuser, advocate on our own behalf, and explain any mitigating circumstances. And appeal, if we can prove there were procedural flaws Click for Full Text!

The Thin Line Between Tribalism and Human Flourishing
Post Date: 2023-02-22 20:18:15 by Charles_Byrd
Walter Grinder, a grand champion of liberty, passed last December. While not well-published, Walter was a scholar of the literature of liberty and a leader at the Institute for Humane Studies. He was dedicated to removing barriers to human flourishing by imparting the ideals of liberty. John Hagel III, Walter’s long-time friend and collaborator, explained, “Walter was consumed by the desire to share his reading and thoughts with his network of libertarian associates and protégés in more personal ways, so that they could see more clearly how it connected with their specific work and interests.” Walter shared insights from his scholarship in the form of emails ...

Attack of The Killer Balloons from Outer Space
Post Date: 2023-02-21 02:41:23 by Charles_Byrd
Out of nowhere a wave of allegedly Chinese spy balloons are flying over America. Of course, it is important to care. Pay no attention to the genocide behind the curtain, let alone the nuclear war on the horizon, or a train derailment releasing chemical toxins in Ohio. Actor Tom Green listed two of these three serious issues in a recent video clip. Although he did add the Epstein island list to the mix. In a recent White House press conference, press secretary Karine Jean- Pierre said, “I know there have been questions and concerns about this, but there is no—again, no—indication of aliens or extraterrestrial activity with these recent takedowns.” Click for Full Text!

Abortion has failed to deliver on its promises. Poverty still exists. Children are still abused. Women are still mistreated

The world is flat. People are property. Tobacco is harmless. Like many other long-held but misguided beliefs, over time these ideas were proven wrong. Consequently, people and societies function differently, in light of what we’ve come to know to be true. Click for Full Text!

'Science' as insanity?
Post Date: 2023-02-12 20:45:54 by Charles_Byrd
The notion that "what works" to cure disease, build sewer systems, raise animals, etc., is "empirical science" has typified the West for hundreds of years. Likewise, the notion that "what is good for humans is the primary duty of medicine" resulted from the Christian doctrine that caused humanity to "reproduce and master the environment" over which God gave us dominion: we manage our animals and plants.

Why People Move from Blue States: It's Not Just High Taxes
Post Date: 2023-02-12 20:41:16 by Charles_Byrd
Defenders of high state taxes like to point out that surveys find few high-net-worth households move primarily to lower their tax bills. This may be so, but it misses the point: high-income, high-net-worth households don't move away from high tax states if they're getting fair value for their taxes. But if services and infrastructure are crumbling around them even as their taxes keep ratcheting higher, then the benefits of moving become much more compelling. In other words, if you're getting good value for your high taxes, then high taxes are not sufficient motivation to move. The problem is not high taxes per se, any more than a high cost of living is the reason to move from a ...

How to Survive Life in Our Looney Bin
Post Date: 2023-02-12 00:51:24 by Charles_Byrd
In 1828, utopian socialist Robert Owen is supposed to have remarked to his business associate William Allen, “All the world is queer save thee and me, and even thou art a little queer.” For obvious reasons, today we substitute mad or crazy for queer in that quotation, but the meaning remains the same. And despite Owen’s strange political beliefs, this quote does concisely summarize the state we now find ourselves in. Click for Full Text!

Review: Mother Country Radicals Spotlights the Weather Underground
Post Date: 2023-02-11 01:40:56 by Charles_Byrd
There have been few satisfyingly in-depth chronicles of the inner workings of Weather Underground, the leftist group active in the late 1960s and 1970s that claimed to fight U.S. imperialistic violence around the world with violence at home. This rarity is likely because the chief players indeed lived "underground" to evade law enforcement. Fifty years later, a new podcast, Mother Country Radicals, aims to deliver a more thorough history of the gang. Two of the Weather Underground's most notorious members, Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers, had children, one of whom happens to be this podcast's host. Zayd Ayers Dohrn thus has a uniquely intimate, and uniquely cozy, view of ...

Be Grateful that First Responders and Teachers Earn Far Lower Incomes Than Sports Stars and Hollywood Actors
Post Date: 2023-02-08 22:44:49 by Charles_Byrd
A few years ago, I was scolded by an email correspondent for my alleged indifference to the fact that first responders and teachers are paid far less than are Hollywood stars and professional athletes. My correspondent insisted that “[r]eal people know it’s wrong and dangerous that men playing games get paid so much more than men and women who save lives and educate our children.” The danger that my correspondent perceived in this situation is that, in her words, “This low pay will one day leave us with not enough teachers and paramedics.” Click for Full Text!

Justice Denied
Post Date: 2023-02-06 16:13:04 by Charles_Byrd
I have been trying to determine which strategy currently being used by our elite rulers is the most problematic for “We the People” to recognize and understand as the means by which we are constantly being hoodwinked and controlled. And as I read once again about this or that fraud (or worse!) having been “revealed” and as a consequence of that revelation, will shortly be brought to court – coupled with the intimation that this procedure will lead to “justice” – I realized that perhaps the first thing necessary these days is to humanely end the presumption that interaction with American courts equals the possibility of justice for the people of ...

Stoics in the Shining City
Post Date: 2023-02-06 16:02:27 by Charles_Byrd
Ridley Scott’s 2000 masterpiece Gladiator stands as one of the most important films of the 21st century, and one of the greatest action movies in cinematic history. Replete with exciting battle scenes and gladiatorial contests, the film dazzled audiences and helped revive the “sword and sandal” genre for the post-millennial era. The film was not merely spectacle, however. There were several scenes in the film in which characters philosophized on the meaning of life, giving many viewers their first exposure to the pagan Roman philosophy par excellence: Stoicism. Stoicism seemed out of place in 2000, the year in which an Evangelical Christian, George W. Bush, would take the ...

The deeply flawed campaign for racial reparations

IN DECEMBER, Boston's City Council voted to craft a plan to pay reparations for slavery and its aftermath. The vote was unanimous, and the councilor who authored the resolution called it "the start of a long- awaited yet necessary conversation" about racial reparations. The start? America's "conversation" about paying reparations for the harm caused by slavery has been underway for decades. Click for Full Text!

Review: The Crown Pits British Tradition Against Reform
Post Date: 2023-02-03 15:38:40 by Charles_Byrd
Netflix's lightly fictionalized historical drama The Crown examines the British monarchy through its longest-serving chief, Queen Elizabeth II. The series delves into the role of institutions and whether it's best to modernize or to maintain tradition. Elizabeth and Prince Charles attempt modest modernizing reforms, but more often they acquiesce to custom. In The Crown's fifth season, the royals face the growing sentiment that their role is antiquated. While Elizabeth and Charles wonder whether the monarchy should change, Britons debate whether it should exist. Elizabeth denied her sister the right to marry a divorcee—and until this season denied her son the right to ...

Ominous Parallels Reconsidered
Post Date: 2023-02-03 15:17:58 by Charles_Byrd
Forty years ago, I reviewed Leonard Peikoff’s Ominous Parallels very negatively, and with one exception, of which the less said, the better, this proved to be the most controversial review I have ever written. Perhaps it is time for a second look. In what follows, I’ll discuss some of the book’s main points and then offer a few critical remarks. The philosopher Leonard Peikoff was a member of Ayn Rand’s inner circle, and she considered him her intellectual heir. He has been the guiding light of the “official” Objectivist organization, the Ayn Rand Institute, since its inception. His aim in Ominous Parallels is to interpret Nazism from the standpoint of ...
