Crowdsourcing Bias

Crowdsourcing Bias

Perhaps the greatest part of living in the current year is the access our civilization has to a virtually limitless supply of information. Although many refuse to take advantage of it, the fact is that we are living during an era which is unprecedented for acquiring and transmitting knowledge at light speed, which I-as...

Youtube Politics

Youtube Politics

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the value of a moving image is incalculable. That’s why the impact of a website like Youtube should never be underestimated. Although often marginalized as an endless repository for cat videos and dwindling supply of unlicensed songs and films, the truth is that Youtube, especially since...

The Twitterverse

The Twitterverse

One of the most interesting social media platforms-and aside from Facebook itself, the most popular one in the English language-is Twitter. The evangelists of this global means of communication would claim it’s responsible for catalyzing a host of revolutions within otherwise repressed dictatorships, while its critics might describe it as a meaningless echo chamber...

Faceberg

Faceberg

I distinctly remember taking part in an online discussion several years ago where one of the interlocutors warned me what would happen if Google ever became an evil monopoly. I couldn’t help but think to myself, have you not been paying attention? Leaving aside its extensive invasions of privacy, its intense cooperation with the...

Inside The Googleplex

Inside The Googleplex

When I first saw the now infamous Google doodle published last week I was a bit perplexed. Was every social justice warrior’s favorite search engine honoring an unsung Asian suffragette, or perhaps one of Anita Sarkeesian’s cyber-feminist forebears? As it turns out, Google was paying tribute to a Marxist, anti-American demagogue who admired cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal...

Barring The Door (Anti-Christian Discrimination)

Barring The Door (Anti-Christian Discrimination)

This month saw the admission of a record number of Syrian refugees to the United States. Nearly 500, according to the State Department Refugee Processing Center. Perhaps unsurprisingly, every single one is a Muslim. 10 Christians, in toto, have been admitted to the U.S. for FY 2016, which saw the importation of over 2,200...

Real Talk About Open Borders

Real Talk About Open Borders

Addendum: In order to grasp just how destructive mass immigration, in concert with state-enforced multiculturalism, is to social capital take a look at this British poll. As you’ll notice, people living in Northern Ireland-the part of the UK which has been riven by sectarian conflict for over a century-trust their neighbors more than those...

From The Ashes (Baca House Fire)

From The Ashes (Baca House Fire)

Short of the death or illness of a loved one, or the passing of a beloved pet, it’s hard to conceive of something more traumatic than losing your house. To have to be confronted with 2 of those tragedies simultaneously is almost incomprehensible. Unfortunately, that’s what the Baca Family is facing after their family...

The Joy Circuit

The Joy Circuit

One of the benefits of living in New York City-a place which often feels like it was expressly designed to discourage your presence-is the seemingly endless opportunities to see amazing, live music acts. Just within the past decade I’ve had the chance to watch the New York Festival Orchestra perform a remarkable tribute to the victims of...

Never Trump Faces Reality

Never Trump Faces Reality

As I’ve said before, there are many legitimate reasons to oppose Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy, although it takes a special kind of smugness, lust for pointless military interventions, and/or disdain for the intelligence of your fellow countrymen for an ostensible conservative or libertarian to endorse Hillary Clinton. Putting aside the subsidiary partisan reasons, we’re...
