Dump Trump (GOP Gala Protests: Part II)

Dump Trump (GOP Gala Protests: Part II)

The right is blessed in its opponents, who have never truly appreciated how deeply unappealing their platform is, at least to non-millennials, i.e. individuals who aren’t complete ignoramuses. A perfect illustration of this political tone deafness can be found in the mass demonstrations held in front of the Grand Hyatt Hotel during the pre-primary GOP Gala....

On Liberty (Todd Seavey Explains Libertarianism)

For Beginners Books I just hope everyone there – and all of you out in blogland – keep in mind Bryan Caplan’s Ideological Turing Test: Strive to model your opponent’s thinking as human and well-intentioned, not demonic. I always do, even though everyone is stupid. -Todd Seavey  I love the above quote for a...

A New York Scene (Socialists v. Trump)

Update: Photos from the melee.  As most of you might have heard, this weekend saw a spate of anti-Trump rallies in both Arizona and New York City.

Testimony Of An American

Even as we tackle subjects that pose imminent challenges to the American public,  it’s always worthwhile to step back and look at the broader picture. The cornerstone of this nation, regardless of what you’ve been led to believe, is liberty. And some of the greatest exponents of liberty are people for whom the United...

May Day: Part II (Marx v. Washington)

May Day: Part II (Marx v. Washington)

The purpose of  last Wednesday’s events, like the marches and rallies staged on Cinco de Mayo, was to pressure elected officials in Washington D.C. into repeating the same disastrous mistakes of the past. In this case, a wholesale amnesty which would cost upwards of six trillion dollars in the coming decades. While most of...

Red Star Rising

Red Star Rising

To live in New York is to be surrounded by people suffering from various pathologies, many of whom you encounter on a daily basis if-like most of us-you use public transportation. Living here also means being surrounded by Marxists of varying hues, including Maoists, Trotskyites, and-as the photograph above illustrates, supporters of the Democratic...

Palestinian By Proxy

Palestinian By Proxy

One image taken from the pro-Hamas rally held by Al-Awda NY, among other anti-Israel organizations, in Times Square this weekend. I wish I could say that it was anomalous in some way, but the inexorable truth is that the physically and intellectually etiolated creature you see above was probably as representative of the spirit...

Rally for the Republic

Rally for the Republic

There is a great ideological divide within this country, even if the two major party candidates don’t accurately reflect it. That’s why I’m pleased to report that our good friend David Webb, in collaboration with some free market allies, has launched a rally intended to strike back at the smiley-faced socialism and denigration of...

May Day 2012 (Marxists, Communists, Librarians)

May Day 2012 (Marxists, Communists, Librarians)

One of the hallmarks of demonstrations organized by the left-as anyone who lives in this city can attest-is a consistently muddled message-or assemblage of messages-which often has little bearing on the theme ostensibly animating the protest movement in question. I’m not sure if the occupiers displaying the words of anti-USSR, Marxist Polish philosopher-turned anti-Marxist...
