Selfies with raging monsters

I had a happy thought today. There’s a gimmick in movie-making that’s becoming really cliche. The premise is the movie is made from compiled found footage from personal cameras. I believe The Blair Witch Project kicked off this fad. I’m hopeful it’s going to fizzle soon. Why do I think the fad is almost at an end and why am I happy about that? ↓ Read the rest of this entry…

What D&D alignment are libertarians?

Chaotic Neutral?

I value freedom above all else. We should all be free to do as we please as long as we don’t violate the rights of others to be free as well. If someone violates your rights, they forfeit the protection of freedom provided by the non-aggression principle (NAP) and you are no longer obligated to respect their rights. Do whatever you feel you need to do to defend your freedom, either on your own or by working with others. We have no obligation to be generous or kind but feel free to if it makes you happy. I thoroughly reject anyone’s authority to command others or impose laws.

And if you do, then you’re racist, or a nationalist which is at least as absurd.

I didn’t say I don’t care. Of course I care about children dying. I just don’t particularly care. I don’t actually know them or their families. Children are dying violent deaths every day all over the world. I don’t mean to be dismissive about it. I literally cannot mourn them all and still be a functional human being. What is disturbing to me is the sense that this event is deserving of special recognition all over the country, and to only a slightly lesser extent in other countries with predominantly white populations. I would hope folks would appreciate my honesty but I don’t expect brownie points for it.

Plurping us to death

THIS! This is what I’m talking about when I say Keynesians believe you can pass a law that food must appear on people’s tables every night.

USDA suggests food stamp parties, games to increase participation

Every $5 in new SNAP benefits generates $9.20 in an additional community spending,” the USDA contends in their outreach guidance. “If the national participation rate rose five percentage points, 1.9 million more low-income people would have an additional $1.3 billion in benefits per year to use to purchase healthy food and $2.5 billion total in new economic activity would be generated nationwide.

What is Money?

I’ve often said you need to take money out of the picture to grasp certain economic concepts. It’s easy to get distracted by money. I’m going to explore how misunderstanding money can distort economic understanding and lead to some fallacious and ultimately harmful delusions. But first, what is money?
