Never knew this existed until I came across it in a Pawn Shop a few weeks ago - great way to explains the dangers of communism to kids with an animated movie. Not as good as the book of course - but still good!Read more »
The Left loves a phantom statistic that a firearm in the hands of a citizen is X times more likely to cause accidental damage than to be used in the prevention of crime, but what is there about criminals that ensures that their gun use is accident-free? If, indeed, a firearm were more dangerous to its possessors than to potential aggressors, would it not make sense for the government to arm all criminals, and let them accidentally shoot themselves? Is this absurd? Yes, and yet the government, of course, is arming criminals.Read more »
When the pilgrims first came to America they almost all starved to death because they adopted communal agriculture. How the pilgrims saved themselves was to adopt the primary prerequisite for a capitalism economy, private property. Mayflower pilgrims had a system in which all goods were owned by the community. All produce was in a common store, from which each individual would receive equal ration regardless of how much he had contributed. The colony was unable to produce enough food until individuals traded with Indians and fellow Pilgrims.Read more »
In order to recognize the American spirit of loyalty and the sacrifices that so many have made for our Nation, the Congress, by Public Law 85-529 as amended, has designated May 1 of each year as “Loyalty Day.” On this day, let us reaffirm our allegiance to the United States of America, our Constitution, and our founding values.Read more »
Russian scientists are falling victim to their own antiquated notions of socialized, government-run science as Moscow demands that all its science arms be further unified under new rules and authority. It's amazing to see the double-think from the scientists as they try to explain government sponsorship of science as a good thing, but in the same breath explain away further centralization and new government mandates as a bad thing. From a libertarian perspective, this reads almost like an article from The Onion.Read more »
There are few philosophers whose very name provokes more violent responses than Karl Marx. His stern face, framed by a mass of gray hair, symbolizes for many Americans the costly battles of the 20th century: battles against communism, socialism, and authoritarianism fought in defense of democracy and free-market capitalism. As successive generations of Americans waged those fights, the philosophical disputes at the core of the conflicts embedded themselves into the American soul.Read more »
Do you really need a 4.0 GPA? Isn’t that GPA kind of—I don’t know—excessive? Wouldn’t life at your college be fairer and more just if you gave some of your unneeded grade points to another student—a less privileged student—who’s flunking Intro to Psych?Read more »
Millions of Chinese, both in China and abroad, have given their stance and made a break from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated youth groups for half a dozen years nowRead more »
Fidel Castro no longer believes in communism. "The Cuban [economic] model doesn't even work for us anymore."Read more »
1 in 20 East Germans were informants. "The Lives of Others" is a sad and unsettling movie about what results when Soviet statism is executed with German efficiency: The Stasi. Funny how much of East German communist assets like this museum were homesteaded, and now the "kindler, gentler" western state wants to seize it all over again. Never again!Read more »
