An Example of Bad Journalism

This is the worst case of journalism I’ve ever seen. The purpose of the article is obvious: paint Wal-Mart as big, greedy, evil and naughty-naughty. Let’s analyze what actually is going on. The contract with Wal-Mart and the lady was that Wal-Mart doesn’t have to pay for your medical expenses if you get someone else [...]

All social understandings of morality is based upon this, explicitely or implicitly, intentionally or accidental. Mainstream Acceptance Both conservative and progressive beliefs are based on [...]

Why I’m a Capitalist

A couple of months ago, I was with a group of radical anti-capitalists. They thought that government was the answer to life, the universe and everything. They thought that businessmen secretly cheat on their wives and beat their children, whereas the poor starving individual was heroically beaten down by the brutal financial leaders. Maybe I’m [...]

My Last Words

So the other day I was thinking about what I would say if I knew that I could write one letter, or a note, to the whole world, and know that they’d read it. Well, there’s so much that I want to say about all of the important things that make life what it is. [...]

Millions around the world have abandoned reason as being cold and unpoetic, and have concluded their theories purely on emotional and cultural pressures. Without logic to guide their [...]

Total Makeover?

As many of you know, I love blogging about Making Money Online — it’s a great hobby and part-time job for me. I’ve bought a lap-top and some other cool stuff with my income generated through my blogs. I’m the main author and operator of Reason and Capitalism, Rebirth of Freedom,

Government and Morality

I present a challenge to any Christian who believes that governments have more of a right to use violence than everyday citizens. I want you to point out a verse, somewhere in the New Testament, that gives government an /exclusive/ right that the citizenry don’t have. Then tell me exactly what that is, from the [...]
