Obama’s Atomic Bomb: The Ideological Clarity of the Democratic Agenda
Examines America’s political climate in light of the unmistakably statist agenda emanating from Washington, and finds cause for optimism in the effect Obama is having on the minds of Americans—and cause for activism toward helping Americans to see the proper political alternative: not conservatism but capitalism.
Philosophy, Politics & Rights
The Creed of Sacrifice vs. The Land of Liberty
Examines the morality of altruism, exposing its incompatibility with the basic principle of America (i.e., individual rights), identifying its philosophic roots, and showing that if Americans want to save America, they must repudiate this creed, root and branch.
The Rise of American Big Government: A Brief History of How We Got Here
Focuses on the historical details of how American government, fueled by altruism, has become the rights-violating, economy-wrecking behemoth it is today.
Science & Technology
How the Freedom to Contract Protects Insurability
Shows that, contrary to proposals being put forth by Republicans, a genuinely free market in health insurance is not only moral, in that it respects the rights of producers and consumers, but also practical, in that it enables businessmen to solve problems for profit—which leads to more and better products and services at lower prices for consumers.
