On my daily walk this morning, I once again noticed that parks, streets, and other public places in my hometown of Scottsdale, Ariz., are not as well-maintained they as used to be. That's a red flag for a city of 230,000 that is largely dependent
You might suppose the speaker to be a relative of Philando Castile or Alton Sterling, or some other black American serf (not because cops don't kill whites--they do; in fact, most of their victims are white, even if a disproportionate number aren

Inside the FBI: agents' outrage at Hillary email decision
We have failed, as a nation, the experiment intended by the founders to limit the size of government and the scope of tyrannical rule -- as if that could come as a shocker, given our exclusionary founding based in genocide and the systematic enslave
I started working as a journalist at the height of the troubles in Northern Ireland, between 1972 and 1975, and then moved to Lebanon where the 15-year-long civil war was just beginning.
When I was young, America still existed. No more. Not even the blather from the 4th of July can hide the obvious fact.
Under the relentless thrust of accelerating over-population and increasing over-organization, and by means of ever more effective methods of mind-manipulation, the democracies will change their nature;
In his great classic, Socialism, Ludwig von Mises observed that socialists always employed the dual strategy of 1) nationalizing as much industry and property as possible; and 2) "destructionism," defined as "destroying the social order which i
"Nearly all creators of Utopia have resembled the man who has toothache, and therefore thinks happiness consists in not having toothache. They wanted to produce a perfect society by an endless continuation of something that had only been valuable b
With populism running wild in Europe and in the United States - the Brexit and American presidential candidate Donald Trump questioning U.S. alliances being just two obvious examples - suddenly people are asking the big questions about the future.
Janet Yellen should send a note of congratulations to Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson, the British politicians most responsible for pushing the Brexit campaign to a successful conclusion.

It seems like every time I get online I see posts about college students advocating for the restriction of free speech on college campuses. From "safe spaces" to Emory students calling to evaluate teachers on their use of "microaggressions,"
Will you help me? Thank you.
This is a clear and simple definition of freedom of speech. The "right" is an individual's right against the government; there is no such "right" against other individuals. Of course, as Rothbard has very well explained, the phrase "fre

By far the best moment of Recode's annual Code Conference was when Elon Musk took the stage and explained that though we think we're flesh-and-blood participants in a physical world, we are almost certainly computer-generated entities living inside a
"You need to tell people about all the interesting things in your subscription letter," one of my oldest friends told me. "We do," I said. "We list them on the site and we even have a free report to get them started."
As the nation once again honors American war dead on Memorial Day, instead of spouting the usual nationalistic platitudes that that U.S. soldiers fought to keep the country "safe and free," perhaps we should analyze whether that is really true.
In addition to this being Memorial Day, the month of May is Military Appreciation Month. This follows Month of the Military Child in April. Upcoming in November is Month of the Military Family. I suppose that soon enough every month will be designed
