    We Are Social Media


    We Are Social Media (Or, Is Social Media Us?) By Brian W. Peterson June 5, 2017 The question is, does social media reflect America or has it shaped America? Perhaps the question lacks an answer, but terse, cutting remarks are the norm these days. It’s hip – allegedly.

    Bigger and Badder Dead White Males


    Why do we care about what a bunch of Dead White Males thought, right? Besides, the Constitution is supposed to be a living, breathing document, so it changes. Those old dead guys were wrong, anyway.

While Statism takes many forms- many of which were seen in the 20th Century- it can only grow strong when the roots of Liberty are shallow, have withered, or have died.

Can we again draw a lesson from France?

Can we again draw a lesson from France? Absent a CLEAR, UNAMBIGUOUS understanding of the Law’s just purpose; a yardstick against which people can measure their government's every act, those entrusted with the force of law will naturally advance their own authority. A...

The Cyclical Process of Climate Change

Much has been made about the government's recently-released report on climate. As expected, this government-funded presentation of a narrative that all-but demands greater power to central government is being treated as the indisputable last word on the matter of...
