Tomi Lahren. Arianna Huffington. Jon Stewart. Bill O’Reilly. Rachel Maddow. Glenn Beck. Samantha Bee. This is a short list of left and right leaning news anchors and commentators. The most important thing these people, as well as countless others, have in common is that they use their popularity in the media to gain influence over … Continue reading The Media Needs To Start Taking Its Job Seriously
A few days ago, as I sat watching a video of Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour performing “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” live at the Royal Festival Hall in 2002 (check out the video here), I was taken by how amazing of a song it was. I prefer classic songs more than I do today’s popular … Continue reading How Modern Music is Declining
As a libertarian, I obviously oppose expensive government programs and meddling in the economy in favor of free markets. Social Security is one of those systems heavily praised by both the left and the right as a system that tremendously helps the elderly and the needy. It was created by FDR, a god amongst modern … Continue reading The Flaws of the US Social Security System and Possible Alternatives

Making the decision to travel after I graduated high school was … Continue reading What I Learned From Six Weeks of Travel

After the Panic of 1907, which led to a bank run, bankers such as JP Morgan lobbied for the government to establish a central bank to try to stabilize the money supply of the … Continue reading A Case for Abolishing the Federal Reserve
I make my libertarian views very clear, and I have also made my views on the Libertarian Party fairly clear. In the 2016 presidential election, I supported Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee, and I would have liked to see that campaign succeed. That election opened my eyes to the deeper workings of the LP, its … Continue reading Why I Support Austin Petersen for Senate
Climate change is an extraordinarily important issue today. It affects everyone — or it will in the coming years. It is in turn worrisome just how many people believe this phenomenon is a myth. Despite all the evidence in favor of this happening, many people refuse to believe it is happening, or if they admit … Continue reading Is Climate Change a Myth?
