EDITORIAL: If One Cannot Reason with the Irrational, then What?

For years now, I have tried in vain to reach my fellow citizens: to explain to them how the things they claim to want and are demanding actually work against their own self-interests, as well as those of their fellow man.  Sadly, I have found that too few care to listen, and of those few … Continue reading EDITORIAL: If One Cannot Reason with the Irrational, then What?

APPLIED NATURAL LAW: The Proper Way to Handle Corporate Involvement in Public Debates

APPLIED LOGIC: The Notion of ‘Law’ and Its Implications for Secular Humanism

PUBLIC DEBATES: We don’t Know Our Rights

As regular readers may be aware, I listen to Glenn Beck.  I do not listen because I agree with him on all of his opinions (truth is, I seldom agree with him), but because I find that he is one of the few voices in media who is honestly seeking Truth.  Although I believe he … Continue reading PUBLIC DEBATES: We don’t Know Our Rights
