The Importance Of Cordial Discussions

The Decline of Free Speech in America

I was once a proud socialist.

I exposed those deeply held views to scrutiny.

They did not hold up.

I was left with the same core beliefs for a more just world. I just came to recognize a more just world wouldn’t be made a reality by chasing politicians down a promised path to utopia.

I continued my reading and have written some 300 essays and opinion pieces on this topic and related topics. At the core of nearly everything I write is some search for truth and some understanding of freedom and justice.

Socialism is the most cockeyed idea. It does not “work” in any actual sense. It has nearly zero economic grounding in reality. It tends to be a dream of people with big hearts and a limited grasp on reality. It has caused poverty, war, starvation, and general suffering throughout the world that would not have occurred if the shitty socialist government in question just folded up and went on permanent vacation, leaving people to their own devices.
