1. "Liberals need a lesson on liberalization." Excellent points.
Representative Sample: Through the massive amounts of codification that are required to achieve social egalitarianism, the Left has knowingly or unknowingly opened the flood gates of burgeoning legislation and regulation. Thus creating an environment which is exponentially growing into the anti-thesis of a true liberal democracy.
2. "Atheists and Anger" Legitimate reasons for angry atheists to be angry.
Representative Sample: One of the most common criticisms lobbed at the newly-vocal atheist community is, "Why do you have to be so angry?" So I want to talk about: 1. Why atheists are angry
3. "Lawfare in Austria: Is Truth Illegal?" Yes, if Muslims and their leftist enablers don't like it.
Representative Sample: Although the trial of Dutch MP and critic of Islam, Geert Wilders, and its serious implications for free speech in Europe, is once again creating a furor in the press, another high-profile trial of a critic of Islam — Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, in Austria — is being overlooked.
4. "Why Videogames are not Real War" Also links to an interesting interview with a marine combat veteran commenting on video games.
Representative Sample: While critics of videogames would have you believe that they are efficient little murder simulations, an NPR editorial from Benjamin Busch begs to differ. Who is Benjamin Busch and why does his opinion carry more weight than most? Because he is an United States Marine Corps infantry officer who has served in Iraq on two combat tours.
5. "Socialism: Building a Bridge to the 18th Century" The latest example in Greece.
Representative Sample: Never mind the ways that they could be cut up, redistributive policies lead to degeneration of the WHOLE pie. It’s something that brings the motive and outcome of candidate Obama’s exchange with Joe the Plumber into sharp focus. Redistributive policies even shaft the people they try to help.
