I haven’t posted much on the presidential campaign, or even followed it as closely as I’ve followed others, because I’ve been busy. And if the reader says, “But the stakes are too important to not follow it extremely closely!” the reader will be making my point. One of the main ideas behind the republican system […]

On the face of it, liberal arguments for gun control are utterly irrational, with no redeeming value whatsoever, except, perhaps, the good intentions that we charitably allow are genuine. The internal inconsistencies of the arguments, and the complete detachment from reality that they represent, leave one baffled. The position can be understood, however, if you […]

Not many atheists were killed and tortured in the Spanish Inquisition. Loads of heretics were, however. Gays themselves will someday be made to suffer, by gays, by precedent that they helped establish.

Why should the vast majority of the population, which is innocent, be made to pay for the crimes of the few, by removing everyone’s freedoms and liberties just so you can feel better?

Your first inclination when I refer to ‘the drone wars’ is probably to the unmanned (but sometimes armed) aerial vehicles that are clogging air spaces and the public imagination, but in fact this is the title of a new series that I will be working on inspired slightly from the Star Wars episode, The Clone […]

Let us all pray that our next resident of the White House is made of sterner stuff and actually likes the people he’s been elected to govern.

I have noticed an increase in massive marches and demonstrations in the United States over the last ten years. Some see this as a healthy by-product of democracy. I think it is the opposite. I think it is an indicator that democracy is in some stage of collapse. Certainly, any legitimate democracy should grant a free right to assemble, but that the people feel they have to assemble in the first place in order for anything to get done means that there is the stench of something very rotten in Denmark. It isn’t easy to put one’s finger on what it is–but that’s precisely part of the problem. If you want to get a feel for how the Republic is really doing these days, don’t look to that meaningless ‘State of the Union’ speech given by the president each year. Look to the streets and see how many, and how often, the people are coursing through them.
