Was Karl Marx Right About Anything (Tom Woods)

An interesting discussion of the premises of Marx that were not necessarily incorrect. Tom Woods expounds on an article written by Hans-Hermann Hoppe, who picks out five foundational statements on Marxism, explains in what way they're right, and how Marx distorted those truths and made them incoherent.

More Gun Laws Will Not Prevent Mass Killings (Peter Schiff)

Peter Schiff explains exactly why more gun control laws will not prevent tragedies like the Las Vegas mass shooting. He also speaks a little on some other contemporary issues, like Puerto Rico and Trump's new tax reforms.

Great Minds Think Alike: Peterson Meets Paglia

It is no overstatement for me to say that this is one of the most profound discussions I've ever listened to. If you only watch one video this year, make it this one. Absolutely essential viewing for everybody. Two of the greatest minds in the world connect. Absolute goldmine.

I Support the Dreamers

As people scramble to form economic arguments on both sides of this debate, I honestly think it's the wrong question to ask. To send so many young people "back" to countries that they do not know and have barely lived in is not constitent with the American notion of liberty. I try not to moralise… Continue reading I Support the Dreamers

Fraudsters of Free Speech Part I: Owen Jones

Whenever one comments critically upon Owen Jones, there seems to be a courteous compulsion to interject, "he's a nice lad, but..." or "...but he does seem like a nice guy."

Keep an eye out on the Property and Freedom… Continue reading The Coming Property and Freedom Talks

Herbert Marcuse and the Tolerance of Repression (Keith Preston)

Here's a really thought-provoking discussion of Herbert Marcuse and the Frankfurt School. As somebody that's pretty caught up in the culture wars, I have been wondering recently if the Frankfurt School should be reconsidered. While I admire the work of thinkers like William S. Lind (the first half of this article is modelled on Lind's… Continue reading Herbert Marcuse and the Tolerance of Repression (Keith Preston)

Nietzsche Speaks! On Anti-Semitism

A very curious passage from Beyond Good and Evil, which not only invalidates the ill-considered prejudices of those that would misappropriate Nietzsche's work, but also derides the crude manners and attributes of the philosophes of national-socialism more wholly, historic and contemporary.   "What Europe owes to the Jews?—Many things, good and bad, and above all… Continue reading Nietzsche Speaks!
