The Lockdowns Were One Big Fat Mistake

pexels kaique rocha 331985

Like nearly all U.S. states, Georgia imposed a stay-at-home order in March 2020 in response to demands from public health officials claiming a stay-at-home order would lessen total deaths from COVID-19. But unlike most states, Georgia ended its stay-at-home order after only five weeks, and proceeded to lower other restrictions quickly. The legacy media responded with furious opposition. For example, an article in The Atlantic declared the end of Georgia’s lockdown to be an “experiment in human sacrifice.” The Guardian approvingly quoted one Georgian who insisted the end of the...

How Privatizing the Roads Would Help Stop Police Brutality

Pexels Josh Sorenson 139303

Advocates of a free society so frequently field the objection “Who will build the roads?” or some variation thereof that it’s become a meme. Much effort has been put into answering this question, including books on the privatization of roads and highways. What has received relatively little attention is what effect road privatization would have on the role of government police, which is surprising given the existing relationship between roads, police, and drivers. Indeed, most of what police do is related to the road. According to the US Department of Justice’s most recent report on...

The Oklahoma City Bombing Archives: An Introduction & Recommended Reading List

When I began compiling material for what eventually became “The Oklahoma City Bombing Archives,” I was simply doing background research for a book. Over a period of several years I used commercial databases, libraries, and services that allowed me to scan newspaper and magazine reports, transcripts, and other sources for relevant material. In addition to standard news media sources, the scope of this research archive expanded after contacting several researchers on this subject and asking for their advice and any materials that might be useful. A number of other researchers contributed...

250th Anniversary of the Boston Massacre

Screen Shot 2020 03 06 At 12.49.46 Pm

You can still see the spot. If you take the Freedom Trail tour in Boston, a uniformed park ranger will let you stand right on the spot where five Americans were killed by British soldiers on the night of March 5, 1770. This bloody encounter came to be known as “The Boston Massacre.” That fateful and fatal clash happened 250 years ago today. However, the fuse that set off that powder keg was lit a couple of years before that night. Here’s the part of the story that is rarely told. For years prior to the massacre, animosity toward the British by the colonists had been growing. The British...
