Government Has Turned Universities and Businesses into DEI Bureaucracies

Government Has Turned Universities and Businesses into DEI Bureaucracies

The Board of Trustees at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, on May 13, announced that they would be diverting the $2.3 million that the university spends on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) policies toward campus safety amidst protests over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. UNC-Chapel Hill joins a list of universities like the University of Florida and the University of Texas that have eliminated their DEI programs in part due to lawmaker pressure. Protestors have boiled up on college campuses, voicing their concerns and demands for schools they claim are supporting the...

States Rights and Anti-Interventionism is Rising

States Rights and Anti-Interventionism is Rising

Super Tuesday saw Donald Trump sweep all possible state delegates except for the state of Vermont. However, hovering just below the surface were a series of propositions that were voted on by the Texas Republican Party. Various propositions touched on topics of gold as legal tender, border security, and school choice, but the most interesting was Proposition 6. Proposition 6 reads as follows: “The Texas Legislature should prohibit the deployment of the Texas National Guard to a foreign conflict unless Congress first formally declares war. YES or NO.” The Texas GOP voters voted over 84% in...

The CATO Institute Is Wrong About the COVID-19 Vaccine

The CATO Institute Is Wrong About the COVID-19 Vaccine

In light of Nobel Prizes being given to two researchers of mRNA COVID-19 vaccinations, beltway establishments like that of the Cato Institute have lauded praises onto the decision. To Cato, as evidenced by a blog post by Ian Vásquez, the production of these vaccines was a “victory of globalization!” Whilst it certainly required a vast scale of global resources and networking, it was hardly what one could consider a free market victory. The development of these vaccines was done so by plundered resources, granted legal immunity, and captured market positions. One aspect lost by the English...

Society’s Artificial Production of Transgender Teens

Society’s Artificial Production of Transgender Teens

According to polls, almost one in six members of Gen Z identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or trans (LGBT). Compared to previous generations, the rates are significantly up. The common explanation is that society has become far more accepting of such individuals, and youth are more willing to "explore their sexuality." If society is more accepting, why are we not seeing older generations revealing they are also a member of said community? Surely, this cannot be the case. So what is causing this trend of youth "exploring their sexuality"? Why are children embarking on this “exploration”?...

On 9/11, We Must Ignore the ‘Kooks’

On 9/11, We Must Ignore the ‘Kooks’

Mistrust of the government ought to be people's reasonable, default position. With such lies as Saddam Hussein manufacturing weapons of mass destruction or that Vladimir Putin put a bounty on our soldier's heads, it is no wonder that citizens began to think that 9/11 was not what it seemed. Certainly, the al-Qaeda extremists did not simply attack us because they hated that we were able to petition our government or girls could wear jeans. They didn't attack us for our freedoms, but the events were not fake. They certainly happened. Loose Change was not very accurate, and it is very damaging...

What Has Government Done to Our Universities?

What Has Government Done to Our Universities?

Joe Biden has stoked more fire into the debate over higher education. The president unveiled a plan to forgive $10,000 of student debt for those making $125,000 a year or less, or $20,000 if that borrower was a recipient of a Pell Grant. While one can argue about the economic or moral implications of the decision, the question that many seem to have missed is: why is a college education so expensive? Is it even worth it? What has the government done to our higher education system? In the United States, there is over $1.75 trillion in student loan debt with an average of $28,950 plus interest...

A Modern Rebirth of Federalism

A Modern Rebirth of Federalism

The FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago resort has resulted in a backlash from Red states against an agency once beloved by the right-wing. Lacking control over either legislative house or the presidency, for Republicans there is little they are able to do besides make odd threats of their eventual control of Congress. So what can Red states do to prevent further overreach by the Federal Bureau of Investigation? The answer lies in the Founding Fathers and the lost American art of federalism. A system of federalism relies upon the strong decentralization of governance,...

Elon and the Magnificient Twitter Deal

Elon and the Magnificient Twitter Deal

As if repudiating the cultural zeitgeist, Elon Musk has decided to purchase Twitter, a large social media platform, to add to his stack of companies like Tesla, SpaceX, Starlink, and the Boring company. While he has taken several unique perspectives, from fighting against population decline (citing it as a major problem), the Ghislaine-Epstein child sex trafficking scandal, and colonization of Mars, he seems to be a free speech absolutist. Musk believes that freedom of speech is not constrained by the feelings of an individual who hears it, that everyone should be allowed to speak, and that...

Israel Winner of the 2003 Iraq Oil War

Israel Winner of the 2003 Iraq Oil War

From the Foreword by Lawrence B. Wilkerson: “[T]he debate over whether oil was a principal reason for the 2003 invasion has waxed and waned, with one camp arguing that it absolutely was, while the other argues the precise opposite.” “Mr. Vogler, himself a former...
