  • Day 198 – Last Day of YSC

    Today was the last day of FEE’s YSC in Midland. I had a wonderful time this week! I met so many wonderful scholars and defenders of liberty here. Tomorrow, Brad and I are driving down to Hillsdale for a little while, then we are driving home. To all of you who are sick of photos […]

  • Day 197 – Privatizing Roads

    Today was another great day at FEE’s YSC. Among other things, Walter Block talked about privatizing roads, which he recently authored a book about. I also got to participate in a discussion over lunch with Block, Ben Powell, and some other students about the legitimacy of fractional reserve banking. I also went out to dinner […]

  • Day 196 – Third Day of YSC

    There were some wonderful lectures today, including an immigration talk from Ben Powell, in which he destroyed every argument brought up against open borders.

  • Day 70 – Anticipation and Excitement

    I have been looking forward to the end of this week for a while now. I only have a few days left to get through, then I will have a much-awaited break! Above is a photo that I took the last time I was in South Carolina a few years ago. I hope to have […]

  • Personal Beliefs vs. Political Beliefs

    I have been thinking about this for a while.   I think it is important when talking about legislative policy and our beliefs to ask ourselves this question: Do I actually believe in this strongly enough to force it upon others through legislative action, or is it just a personal belief?   I am okay […]
