I realized a few things after reading the manifesto of the Texas shooting suspect, which was being shared all over social media just hours after the incident. This is not the world we lived in when the forefathers penned the constitution.
"In our critique of communism we follow the same mistake that Ancoms make in assuming capitalism will simply disappear should “real” anarchism be achieved."
"As far as our battles for liberty are concerned, defending IP is a poor hill to die on."
"What common sense is, in its own funny way, is common knowledge, no? Well, not exactly."
President Trump recently found himself in hot water for making the suggestion that several congresswomen should “go back” to the countries they came from...
"There are three primary forms of consent: implied, verbal, and written. Social contract theory relies on the former of the three forms to function."
"Regardless of the outcome, one thing is certain: if you found entertainment value in the 2016 election, 2020 is sure to be a blockbuster."
"Deadweight loss occurs when something intervenes in the market and shifts the equilibrium price. Price ceilings, price floors, tariffs, and other externalities can create these pockets."
"To claim that society will collapse unless people begin to throw all of their time towards their nation is not only preposterous, it’s subtly totalitarian."
"The fact that so few people vote for Libertarian candidates is a very useful signal that party higher-ups should be paying attention to. This isn’t a case of citizens failing in their obligation to vote for the LP, it’s the LP failing in their ability to sufficiently attract voters."
