Why I'm No Longer a Capitalist (It's Not What You Think)

Why I'm No Longer a Capitalist (It's Not What You Think)

I seem to have been thinking, “Don’t they know that private ownership and a firm hierarchy are necessary for innovation and for the market to provide services to the customer at low prices?!”

But I wasn’t thinking. Not really.

Overprescription, Big Pharma, and You

Overprescription, Big Pharma, and You

Whenever something is broken, it is always important to dig in and think hard about why that thing is broken because, chances are, it is simply the effect of another broken cause. Treat the problem, not the symptoms.

Analysis of the Analysis: What the Hell's Up With "This Is America"?

Analysis of the Analysis: What the Hell's Up With "This Is America"?

If we are meant to analyze every little thing and assume nothing is accidental, then we should take nothing for granted. But professional think-piece writers across the internet have done just that.

What the Hell is Happening in Nicaragua?

What the Hell is Happening in Nicaragua?

The violence has not stopped, but the tide seems to be ebbing, if only for a moment. If the public continues to protest the way they have been treated by this government and their police, the violence will likely continue.

The True Scourge of Objectification

The True Scourge of Objectification

Neo-feminist thought posits that, not only are the women in the works victims of the patriarchy, but such works further victimize all women everywhere. This view, while legitimate on the surface, contains one fatal logical oversight: The subject in the image.

The Origins of the Bill of Rights

The Origins of the Bill of Rights

I may be an anarchist, but that does not stop me from understanding the logic behind such a document as the Bill of Rights. The Constitution of the United States of America utilizes the same logic as the Declaration of Independence in the establishment of inalienable rights, following a decidedly Lockean tradition...

The Ethics of Anarchy (For Me, Specifically)

The Ethics of Anarchy (For Me, Specifically)

Trump Derangement Syndrome and Political Discourse

The TDS trend does not bode well for myself and my compatriots. I only hope that we can maintain our vigor and desire for truth long enough to outlast the effects of this factionalism and be here when the storm of partisanship finally subsides, as it eventually must.

Basically, what I’m trying to say can be summed up in a few short sentences.

Taxation is Theft, But Why?

Taxation is Theft, But Why?

No matter the number of logistical and sociological wrenches you try to throw into the idea, the ethical and philosophical consistency does not change. Whatever attempts to undermine the basic idea that taxation is theft have no effect on the bedrock of the notion, and that is why people always resort to moving goalposts to the logistical after losing the argument on the ethical.

Rogue Review: The Politics of Black Panther

Rogue Review: The Politics of Black Panther

I have seen, in recent days, the hashtag #WakandaForever next to vitriolic hate and despicable messages of ethno-nationalism in equal measure.
