I understand why most Americans—especially those who were alive at the time and had been devastated by the pain and confusion of war—aren’t really interested in pushing past the simplistic myth of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that has been preserved and propagated in textbooks, speeches, and movies through the years in order to look honestly at the facts.
But I’m disturbed and ashamed that most American Christians—including my former self—also refuse to question this myth.
Just yesterday, I mentioned on by personal Facebook page that I had added “transgender” to my list of terms that I wish I could block from my news feed. It’s neither the word nor the people it describes that sicken me, but rather the ignorant and inconsiderate attitudes that just about everyone displays when discussing the transgender bathroom issue.
And then this morning, here comes this story: U.S. Directs Public Schools to Allow Transgender Access to Restrooms. So, I guess “transgender” will be one of the key words in what promises to be the most cacophonous presidential campaign season in history.
Tom Woods is the indispensable man of libertarianism.
No one alive (may Murray Rothbard rest in peace) has the knowledge of history, economics, and political philosophy and the ability to effectively communicate these ideas that Woods has.
His success as a writer and podcaster directly inspired me to start this website, and I look at the sheer scope, volume, and quality of his work as a challenge to produce quality work of my own.
If you’re fairly new to libertarian ideas, it may take a while to sort out the truth from the many popular misconceptions—No, we don’t think big business should be able to do whatever it wants, we have nothing to do with Lyndon LaRouche, and we don’t think schoolchildren should be allowed to buy heroin at CVS.
So, rather than go to media outlets that often distort—intentionally or otherwise—what actual libertarians actually mean, let’s hear from one of the very best, most passionate libertarians there is: Judge Andrew Napolitano.
