From Bill Gates to the Great Refusal – Farmers on the Frontline

By / August 19, 2022

Colin Todhunter Prior to the Industrial Revolution, most humans were engaged in agriculture. Our relationship with nature was immediate. Within just a few generations, however, for many people across the world, their link with the land has been severed.

Spies Like Us: The Assange Indictment

By / August 19, 2022

Suzie Halewood The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia indictment of Julian Assange is a curious document.  By the end of it you can’t help feeling that if anyone is to be indicted, it should be the US Government and the CIA. Assange is accused of conspiracy to receive national information, […]


The New Deal: Admissions against Interest

By / August 18, 2022

It would be easy to write a very negative review of Robert Kuttner’s Going Big (New Press, 2022), but it would be a mistake to do. Kuttner is a well-known progressive economist and the founder of the Economic Policy Institute. He is an ardent New Dealer who regrets that political exigencies, as well as Franklin […]

3 Things Most People Don’t Know About Gold, Bitcoin, and Money

By / August 16, 2022

Bitcoin has been likened to the platypus… which sounds like an odd comparison. The platypus is a strange duck-billed mammal with webbed feet and a furry body like a beaver. It has characteristics of birds, mammals, and reptiles. Females lay eggs but also nurse their young with milk. Males produce a potent venom. When Europeans […]

Most Young Adults Do Not Know Why We Celebrate July 4th

By / August 14, 2022

Do you know what we celebrate on July 4th?  For most of my readers, such a question would be an insult because the answer is obvious.  July 4th was the day that we officially declared our independence from the British.  The Continental Congress actually voted in favor of independence on July 2nd, and then on […]

By / August 13, 2022

Can you believe that it is the second half of 2022 already?  I don’t know about you, but to me it seems like time goes by faster with each passing year.  Perhaps that is just because I am getting older.  In any event, the first six months of 2022 are already in the tank.  During […]


Is the Food Crisis Over or Just Getting Started?

By / August 12, 2022

Are you hungry? Good, according to the central planners. The folks over at the UN stopped destroying the world for a brief few minutes to publish a piece (snapshot below) justifying their behavior and explaining the “benefits” of the famine they’ve engineered. Not making this up. The article remained on the UN website for a […]
