2013 is over, and I’m in the large group of people who are sort of glad to see it go. But in terms of liberty and technology, it was a great year! 2013 was also the year that a vast new majority of Americans turned their back on the overseas milita

The relationship between the mind, spirit, and the world with which they interact.
I hear the same complaints about politicians that you do. And while I understand them (I’ve complained plenty myself), the fact is that complaining accomplishes very little. And there is a very simple reason why complainers have no effect: Because th

Despite the fact that we are treated like second-class citizens with no rights to speak of—not to speech, property, assembly, due process, redress or representative government—in a police state that shows little regard for our life, liberty or our pu
The Roman Catholic Church was guilty of many abuses in Europe all through the Middle Ages, and I think the people of Europe had good reason to walk away from it. But as they did, they made a massive error: They didn’t replace it with anything better.
