Parents can help children choose freedom over force, and ensure that these lockdowns never, ever happen again.
This winter, I’m a visiting scholar at the University of Texas. Though Austin is gorgeous, visitors can’t help but notice vast homeless villages scattered throughout the city. Local sources tell me that this is driven by Austin’s repeal of the ban on homeless camping. One of the economists I’ve met here has written a Swiftian proposal for reforming Austin’s approach. The author prefers to remain anonymous, but this is printed with his permission. Engage your sense of satire, and enjoy!
As a professor of mixed race (English, Scottish, African-American, German) who began life in poverty and then created success in many areas, I offer my perspective on “Privilege.” I created this video to show a sustainable way that all people can help re-imagine their own unique privilege to better “work” for their lives.
All real rights are “negative rights”– no one has the right to get in the way of anyone exercising them. But that sounds so… negative. It’s accurate but unfortunate.

Most Americans have never heard of these acts of terrorism from leftist groups that were so numerous throughout the 1970s. But this is a prime example of “those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” The urban unrest, which has rocked America in the early 2020s, is nothing new. The 1960s saw both race riots and left-wing terrorist groups looking to exploit animosity between racial groups in America.
The online mob came for Harald Uhlig. What terrible thing had he done? As I show in my new video, he tweeted that Black Lives Matter “torpedoed itself, with its full-fledged support of #defundthepolice.” Instead of defunding, Uhlig suggested, “train them better.”
