  • Re: Thomas Jefferson--was he being intellectually dishonest or was there something else to it?

    You can learn all you want about Thomas Jefferson by reading his blog! Several times each week, he posts briefly on a variety of topics. Recent posts were on George Washington, the metric system and the value of paying cash. Tomorrow's will be on economic "bubbles." Read his blog at http...

  • On the strategy of persuasion, a caveat.

    There is a disturbing trend that I’ve come across lately and that is when, people of anarcho-capitalism persuasion drag down their fellow free-market libertarians and minarchists for not going 'all the way'. Now i personally would say that support the rights-based anarcho-capitalist ideal;...

  • American Revolution anti-capitalist + anti-individualistic?

    Hi everyone, first OP. :) So today in my introduction to American History class, my professor (who I suspect to be either Marxist or severely social-democratic) talked about the American revolution.

  • Re: Who was the worst president?

    I'm glad to see someone finally fingered the false libertarians in the bunch. We can debate for hours as to which commie (FDR) or fascist (Lincoln & Bush 2) did the most dammage.
