Frieden and Obama’s “prior ideological commitment”: Utilitarianism.

A little self-governance for a change would be just what the doctor ordered in the face of Obama and Frieden’s “catastrophic incompetence or prior ideological commitment.”

Ebola: One more symptom that we are on our own, courtesy of the Hedonist-in-Chief.

Americans are increasingly coming to the conclusion that they are “on their own.” The feeling is that their own government is prepared to sacrifice them for the ’cause.’ This can’t end well.

Scottish Secession and the ‘Right to Secede.’

Secession is the last non-violent option on the table. If we grant a ‘right to assembly’ we should similarly grant a ‘right to secede.’ Splintered regions certainly have some disadvantages, but it is far better that the people in those regions weigh the advantages and disadvantages for themselves and voluntarily choose whether or not they will bear the cost and risk of remaining separate from some other region. In my opinion, no union merely for the sake of having a union is worth the killing of thousands of people in order to preserve that union. Great Britain seems to have gotten that part right, and that is to its credit. Perhaps a day is coming, and sooner than we think, when we may have to draw a lesson from Scotland.

What the Ukraine Can Teach us About the Future of America

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.
