Villanova basketball and praxeology

Villanova University is about to see an increase in applications in the near future.  Did the education you can get there suddenly become better?  Did the price of tuition drop?  Do businesses want Villanova graduates more than graduates of other schools?  Did people finally realize that Drexel is only a decent school for engineering? None…


The ironic defense of Gary Johnson

Gary Johnson’s inability to answer a simple question about whether the Constitution was compatible with the Non-Aggression Principle has stirred debate among libertarians.  While plenty have been critical of him, there have been those who have come to his defense and have attempted to rationalize Johnson’s answer.  J.

The video is strictly about immigration and welfare…

I was having a conversation today with someone about US foreign policy where I was arguing in favor of non-intervention.  As expected, when I said that the government shouldn’t meddle in other people’s business, I was asked: “So we should have just continued to do nothing after getting attacked?” This is a false dichotomy used…
