US Immigration History

We are told… Except for Native Americans, we are all immigrants or children of immigrants. True enough – true as well for the “Native Americans.”  By the way, open borders didn’t work out so well for this group. The entire history of the United States, until recently, is one of open borders and open immigration. We […]

In the End, Only Liberty or Slavery Can Win

From Jordan Peterson’s Biblical Series VI: The Psychology of the Flood, at about 35 minutes; he is addressing the common complaints aimed at patriarchy (cited as accurately as I could after a few passes): The patriarchal aspect of existence can become tyrannical, it does that quite regularly. Every solution carries within it certain problems; no solution is perfect.  ….That’s […]

Thank You, Google

Google engineer James Damore wrote a ten-page memo (PDF), titled “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber.”  Google fired him. You know all about the contents already.  To make a long story short, he suggests… …that biological differences could help explain the gender gap in tech employment in Silicon Valley, and criticized Google’s policy of silencing discussion on the issue. And […]

There Goes the Neighborhood

Doug French has written a piece, posted at LRC, entitled “The Airbnb Next Door.”  Let me say up front: if I come to find that this is a work of fiction, I am going to be really, really mad. He offers an interesting situation: one of the neighbors in his quiet cul-de-sac of nine homes has […]

A Transgender Policy I Can Get Behind

Well…maybe… Philadelphia used to require every public transit pass to say whether a rider was female or male. For Charlene Arcila, a transgender woman, it didn’t matter which option she chose; either way, some bus drivers deemed her pass illegitimate.

Libertarian Neocons

Reason has gone full-blown neocon.  Recently I commented on a call to war with Russia by Cathy Young, published at Reason.com.  Now it is another piece at Reason, written by Steve Chapman and entitled “Trump Forces a GOP Retreat On Russia.”  Chapman doesn’t consider the so-called retreat to be a good thing.

Matthew 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. –        Jesus Christ, Sermon on the Mount Just one verse of perhaps the most stream-of-consciousness-what-it-means-to-follow-Christ passages offered straight from the-Son-of-God’s lips to man’s ears.

The Safety of the Cold War

Ahhh…the good old days: the Soviet Union and the United States; the Warsaw Pact and NATO; East and West.  And nukes…tens of thousands of nukes.  I look back fondly at the relative safety of the time. Sure, tensions were high.  Cuban missile Crisis, proxy wars, Iron Curtains, Checkpoint Charlie.  But at least then the two sides would talk; at […]

The Silk Roads: A New History of the World, by Peter Frankopan. Frankopan begins his journey not with trade in goods but trade in faith.  Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, Manichaeism, Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Christianity (of more than one flavor), and eventually Islam (of more than one flavor) all come into play in this journey, and not always in […]
