Resisting a Culture of Mask-Steria

I haven’t worn a mask in weeks, except when I’m flying. I’ve had the vax, I’ve had Covid, and I’ve had enough. Recently I attended a church service while visiting in another state.

FreedomFest 2021 Rapid City SD

As an educational entrepreneur, it is difficult to find allies who believe in free market alternatives to government schools. Even libertarian and conservative think tanks often offer educational policies that keep families dependent on government funding and institutions by offering innovative schemes under the guise of school choice. I was so happy to find so many educational innovators…

Pushing Government out of the Bedroom

We must end government interference with adult consensual sex by ending the prohibition of adult consensual sex work.

‘Small-Government Climate Activism’ Is a Dangerous Bait-and-Switch

During the past few years, libertarians and small-government conservatives have been targeted by self-identified “conservative climate activists.” The activists claim global warming is a crisis and conservatives must come up with conservative climate solutions to counter the Climate Left. However, the mythical climate crisis does not exist, rendering proposed solutions unnecessary and harmful. Moreover, even if climate worry…

Too often development directors and nonprofit leaders are wearing so many…

Striving for Constitutional Balance

History marks the summer of our 1787 Constitutional Convention as a time when our founding fathers sought balance to counteract chaos.

Yes, Feminists Can Be Libertarians

Libertarianism and feminism make fine bedfellows—though you might not know it from talking to folks adopting either label in 21st century America. Libertarians tend to view feminism as something solely for leftists—folks always reaching for collectivist and statist solutions to social and interpersonal problems. Feminists tend to view libertarianism as a philosophy concerned with self-interest…

Why You Are Not a Conservative

I get this all the time: “Oh Deirdre, you’re such a conservative.” My friends seem to think politics operates exclusively on a left-right spectrum. They therefore suspect me and other self-described “libertarians” of being sneaky versions of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. In truth, libertarians sit nowhere on the left-right map, which merely captures a…

Dear America: It’s Time to Break Up

Decentralization is the only healthy way to avoid collapse, or recover from it In the twentieth century, Americans had national unity. Such unity was achieved through centralized media and the inculcation of civic narratives in the schools. This wasn’t a conspiracy so much as a sign of the times. In those days, it was possible…

The Method

Francis Fox Piven made a striking statement in her book, Challenging Authority: How Ordinary People Change America. “Almost all of the labor, civil rights, and social welfare legislation of consequence in the industrial era,” she wrote, “was enacted in just two six-year periods: 1933-1938 and 1963-1968.” The sole exception is SSI, but even that program…

The Politics of Public Sector Unions

In President Joe Biden’s America, unions are ascendent. These political power players on the left have been biding their time for years, spending hundreds of millions of dollars to put candidates in power who will then reward them for their loyalty.

Our Constitutional Solution

Freedom and Wealth

Well, that was an interesting year. Turns out making money isn’t as exciting if you’re locked down in a high rise drinking whiskey alone in your underwear.  My firm specializes in Cryptocurrency Retirement Accounts, so endless money printing and early stage Communist Revolution was in fact “very good for business”. Financially, we did very well, our…

Goodbye Circular Flow, Hello LinKē!

Dominant but damaged… There’s no need to show you the Circular Flow Diagram – it’s already in your head. It has dominated economic thought for a century.

Vascular Deterioration in Our Brains as We Age: Can These Changes Be Treated?

We all know our brains do not work as well as we age. Forgetting names, phone numbers and where we left our car keys are all natural consequences of an aging brain. Many medical researchers now believe that age-related cognitive decline is a vascular event and comes about as our brain neurons are slowly choked off by diminished blood flow to the…

On the Road Again–You Come Too!

Are You Healthy, Wealthy & Wise?

Ask yourself these three questions, “Who are you?” “Do you have a social security number?” “What do you own?” The thing people generally call the “United States Government” doesn’t come close to honoring the Constitution or the Constitutional Republic it formed; thus, in this article, I call that thing: “Corp. U.S.” (to see more on why,…
