The Beautiful Philosophy of Liberalism

by
There has been a great paradox in the modern world.

The Danger Is Real

by
“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the ... [click for more]

Five Hundred Days of the Welfare/Warfare/Police State

by
Earlier this month, Donald Trump reached his 500th day in office.

Today, again, there are counter-revolutions against this great experiment in human liberty. ... [click for more]

A Graduation Message for a Dark Age

Those coming of age today will face some of the greatest obstacles ever encountered by young people. They will find themselves overtaxed, burdened with excessive college debt, and struggling to find worthwhile employment in a debt-ridden economy on the brink of implosion. Their privacy will be eviscerated by the surveillance state. They will be the subjects ... [click for more]

Is It Possible to Be Underpaid?

Teacher pay in West Virginia ranks near the bottom among the ... [click for more]

The Age of Petty Tyrannies

by
“Whether the mask is labeled fascism, democracy, or dictatorship of the proletariat, our great adversary remains the apparatus—the bureaucracy, the police, the military. Not the one facing us across the frontier of the battle lines, which is not so much our enemy as our brothers’ enemy, but the one that calls itself our protector and makes us its slaves. ...
