And, also obviously, if this long-term trend continues, then the American public will be heading into a pre-revolutionary condition, and, beyond that, into a revolutionary one.
Jay's Bar, my hangout back in the 1990s - through the heady years of the early internet, the cypherpunks, and the all-out gas that was the digital gold economy - seems to be coming back to its glory.
As I was writing A Lodging of Wayfaring Men, I felt an overwhelming need to put everything I had into the book. (That's the way you feel when you're very serious about such things and you're not sure you'll ever write another book like it.) S
Everything you see (and don't see in the surveillance state that surrounds you) is a product of the glorious Constitutional Republic that Spooner described so splendidly.
People who voted for Donald Trump were voting for change. For that matter, that's what the people who voted for Barack Obama were voting for in 2008. But Obama changed nothing, and it looks like Trump won't either. At least not the things that re
This past Monday, March 6, marked the anniversary of the fall of the Alamo outside of San Antonio, Texas, back in 1836. This event is so significant in my mind that I always try to devote a column that honors the heroism of these men on or around the
As soon as one is born, they are implanted into 'the system' of society by being tagged with a social security number which identifies them until death. Only after one has taken out thousands of dollars in student loans, signed up for multiple cr
Modern man is trained to think in certain ways and to turn away from anything that differs… to give authority the benefit of every doubt, instinctively and forever.
I was taught in school that our modern governance was the best thing ever, and I suppose that you were too. But do any of us really believe that the way of life we now have is the best possible? I dare say (and hope!) that few of us are that intellec
Opening the books on the outgoing administration would be a booster shot for democracy.
This is a beautiful planet, filled, in the main, with decent, cooperative humans. And yet, I want out. Give me any kind of functional spaceship and any reasonable chance, and I'll take it. This place is anti-human. It chokes the best that's in us
SING, Muse (if such a theme, so dark, so long... May find a Muse to grace it with a song)... By what unseen and unsuspected arts... The serpent Error twines round human hearts
"Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the world, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day? . . . Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birth
The spin, lies, manipulation and deceptions are coming so fast and thick it's increasingly difficult to document them all, let alone analyze them. But in the broad sweep of recent events we can see a common theme emerging: the abnormalization of di
In a surprising moment of self-awareness, Wolfgang Münchau just published an editorial in the Financial Times comparing the gatekeepers of the "global liberal order" (the FT included) to Marie Antoinette and the House of Bourbon, blindly "let
"It has been a long, hard road since January 21 of 2007 when this Group was created. For a purpose."
I want to talk about some of the silver linings in this awful election, and one of the most obvious is this: technology really has allowed us to override the media gatekeepers, challenge the official narrative, consume real news and real facts, and t
The article pasted below is insightful but very long. It describes the alt-left, or the millennials who supported Bernie Sanders and comprise a large and growing wing of the Democrat party. To save you time, I've pasted a two-paragraph excerpt imme
Pat Buchanan: Ruling class fears the people won't accept its political legitimacy
What I find most surprising today is that the insiders and the elite have no idea what is percolating just beneath the surface. Okay, maybe their arrogance actually produces its own fog, so it should not come as a surprise that they are blinded.
On September 6 at noon in Senate Hearing Room 1 at the Arizona State Capital, the Joint Ad Hoc Committee on Prosperity Districts will conduct a fact finding hearing into the Prosperity Zone Compact.
