On Uniting the Country
by Tibor R. Machan
Sanction this ArticleEditMark as your favorite article
        On January 3rd, just after Meet the Press, NBC-TV broadcast a radio address by President Obama and while I have become nearly completely pessimistic, even cynical, about expecting anything uplifting from politicians these days--I think there could be some and have been a very few--I listened to the whole message.  I never quite foreclose the possibility that people will change course, improve, gain new insights, and otherwise depart from their bad habits.

In Defense of Joe Stack
by B B
Sanction this ArticleEditMark as your favorite article
Which do you consider more delusional: flying a plane into a government building in retaliation of government abuse or believing that the government exists to protect your individual rights? If you answered the former, you're certainly not alone. However, though you might not have thought twice before responding to what appeared to be a silly question, perhaps it's worth considering the moral premises that led to your belief. (Read more...)

Obamaís Immigration Machinations
by Tibor R. Machan
Sanction this ArticleEditMark as your favorite article

For one, he is on record declaring that the law ties his hands about the matter--that he cannot act unilaterally, or so he said in a widely available video from just a year or so ago. (Read more...)

TSA & a Free Country: Are the Compatible?
by Tibor R. Machan
Sanction this ArticleEditMark as your favorite article
Why does the TSA annoy so many of us? Not having the resources to do a survey, I resort here to what might be called educated speculation. I suspect it is because free men and women consider it invasive for government agents to order them around--pat them down, make them endure electronic surveillance, being ordered around by TSA agents, etc.--unless they give their permission.

Cost-Benefit Analysis
by Joseph Rowlands
Sanction this ArticleEditMark as your favorite article
When it comes to certain moral choices, the thought of someone doing a cost-benefit analysis is horrifying to many people. Take an example of the choice to murder someone or not. The conventional thinking is that this shouldn't even be an option, and morality is best when it demands that this be taken off the table. ... (Read more...)
