Joe Biden: The Architect of America’s Disastrous War on Drugs

Joe Biden: The Architect of America’s Disastrous War on Drugs

As expected, former vice-president Joe Biden is once again running for president, joining what feels like a million other Democrats who have already declared their candidacies. (To name a few, the list of candidates currently includes Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Kamala D. Harris, Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, and former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper.) While Biden’s more moderate views offer an appealing alternative to the extremism championed by...

The Constitutional Reasons to Oppose Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court

The Constitutional Reasons to Oppose Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court

After two days of political theater, the Senate Judiciary Committee agreed to delay the vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court for a week. In that time, the FBI will conduct an investigation surrounding the allegations made against him by Christine Blasey Ford. By now, no one is a stranger to the claims of sexual assault that have been levied against Judge Kavanaugh. In fact, the entire country has been so wrapped up in this case, it is hard to determine what is fact and what is simply partisan politics rearing its ugly head. And between Cory Booker’s lengthy monologue...

Fed up with Drug Shortages, This Hospital Decided to Make Its Own Generics

Fed up with Drug Shortages, This Hospital Decided to Make Its Own Generics

Governments are not especially skilled at thinking outside the box. It is quite remarkable then, that so many turn to the government to innovate and fix health care when it has already abundantly proven incapable of doing anything except making it worse. Luckily, those who work in the health care sector on a daily basis are taking the lead and innovating where they can. And the latest example of this comes from Utah, where one health care provider is working diligently to lower costs and eliminate shortages of generic prescription drugs. A Problem and a Solution Intermountain Healthcare is...

This Was Mises’s Main Case for Peace

War only destroys. Peace, on the other hand, creates. War is absolutely devastating. There is no dancing around that fact. Not only is it responsible for the loss of countless human lives, it also leaves an immeasurable amount of physical and emotional destruction in its wake. Opponents of war may decry war until they are blue in the face, begging those in power to consider its human costs. But these cries almost always fall upon deaf ears, as history has tragically demonstrated. When it comes to politicians and war, the ends always justify the means, even when those means are human lives....

Growing Tomatoes Might Get Your Home Raided by the Police

Justice is especially elusive where the war on drugs is concerned. While the news is usually filled with horror stories of families being torn apart and accidental deaths occurring during drug raids, rare instances of justice are precious and inspire hope that the war on drugs may be coming to an end. Last week, one family saw the first signs of justice after a panel of three judges ruled against the state of Kansas and determined that a raid conducted on their home was unlawful and that the search-and-seizure was in violation of the 14th and Fourth Amendments.This ruling will allow the...

Without the State, Who Will Handcuff Teens for Selling Water Bottles?

Tourists taking a stroll around the national monuments this past weekend might have wondered what horrible crime was committed by a group of black teenagers sitting handcuffed and detained on the sidewalk. But while imaginations may run wild, the truth of the matter is extremely tame; the only offense these teens were guilty of was selling bottled water without first asking the government for permission. If this seems like an overreaction on the part of law enforcement, that is because it absolutely is. However, this over-enforcement has become all too common when it comes to youthful...

Technology Alone Won’t Deliver Justice for Victims of Police Abuse

Before video recorders became widely available, many instances of police brutality went unrecognized by the general public. Police abuse is hard to prove when it is a citizen’s word against the state’s. But as more households began buying camcorders to document their lives for posterity, many didn’t realize that they were now armed with technology that had the power to expose government abuses to the entire country. A major reason the 1991 police beating of Rodney King became such a sensationalized instance was that it was one of the first times such an event was captured on film and...

Hack Your Pancreas and 3D-Print Your Smile

The more government involves itself in health care, the harder it becomes to find quality services at affordable prices. As the state has inserted itself more heavily into the health sector over the last several years, many Americans are left searching for alternatives to traditional services. Luckily, as technology continues to advance far beyond anything our grandparents thought possible, health care itself is becoming more decentralized as individuals are now able to take personal control over their medical decisions. While older generations may be content to wait on others to improve...
