One thing we've learned over the past 20 months is that, to some folks, science is a popularity contest. Consensus is invoked to justify destructive lockdown policies and mandates. It's also being used as leverage to further the cause of climate change policies. Anthony Watts has a great article on why consensus on climate change is irrelevant.

Anyone who is paying attention realizes that we are in the midst of an economic crisis. Sadly, even the folks who recognize this fact may be tempted to put their faith in the folks running the economic and political structures to fix the problem. Jeff Thomas explains that this is a bad idea since those same folks at the top are the ones creating the crisis. He says this train wreck is no accident.

If you're serious about seeing the various Covid mandates come to an end, you're going to have to become comfortable with engaging in civil disobedience. Samuel D. Samson points out that this can be done without becoming combative but anything good requires some effort and sacrifice.

There have been plenty of warnings about the steady move toward a cashless society. Kit Knightly says that programmable digital currency may be the next stage of the new normal. If so, it means that our money is about to be replaced by vouchers that are subject to complete state control.

Ever hear of mysterious stories of survival in which the survivors recount some kind of miraculous encounter with someone who saves the day? There's a name for that. It's called The Third Man Factor and Aden Tate has an inspiring article with several stories that exemplify it.

One of the best parts of being self-reliant is acquiring and learning how use tools. Getting set up can be a challenge, especially if you're on a budget. Here's a great article that describes how to get what you'll actually need and where to find affordable tools.

Few things can make life more productive and happier than learning to separate politics from most of your daily activities. Joakim Book has a marvelous essay on the route of (least) resistance and why our lives are too important to let them be ruled by political differences.

Consistency in our principles is an essential part of personal integrity. But that doesn't mean it's easy to be consistent. For instance, how many people complain when the president tries forcing mandates via executive order but cheer when a governor does the same thing to prohibit those mandates? Judge Andrew Napolitano has a thought-provoking take on how edicts are not the same thing as laws, even when they favor our side in a particular battle.

There are times when being a quitter is a good thing. If you've found yourself feeling overwhelmed and hopeless from all the division we see around us, there's a way to fix that. Maybe it's time to quit putting so much emphasis on politics and start working on actually living as a good person instead.

Many of us remember the miraculous time when cochlear implants became a viable way to help the deaf hear. But did you know that certain groups of hearing impaired people fought these implants as being destructive of deaf culture? Steve Sailer explains what is meant by the grateful deaf.

Good news seems to be in short supply these days but John Stossel has a nice reality check for us. He points out that there would be a lot more good news if government would simply get out of the way when innovators are working to improve our lives.

We take a lot of things for granted. That's partly because we don't have a clear understanding of where stuff comes from. This is also true of those who think they can run society by their command. Politicians, we're looking in your direction.

Here's one of the stranger trends that is catching on in some circles--people who wait until they've been sterilized before having sex. What's wrong with this kind of thinking? Annie Holmquist makes the case for choosing children over self-centered ambitions.

The so-called "infrastructure bill" that Congress has been working to pass has a lot of questionable provisions. Buried within this multi-trillion dollar spending package are a couple of passages that could decide the fate of cryptocurrency. Nicholas Anthony has some timely questions on the matter.

While we're on the subject of blockchain technology, there's a story you should hear about how the blockchain prevented digital book burning. Chris Campbell explains how this technology is a marvelous hedge against our modern day censors and book burners.

The political actors in Washington D.C. deserve as little of our time and attention as possible. Having said that, Glenn Greenwald has an excellent article on how civil liberties are being trampled by the shameless opportunists and power-seekers who are pushing the "insurrection" narrative in Congress's 1/6 committee.

The divisions that have been created by various COVID policies are very real. And while it's tempting to see those with views opposite of ours as being evil or stupid, the reality is that most are simply afraid. Thomas Harrington has an excellent article on the frightened class and how they've bought into the fear being pumped at us around the clock.

Kendall Whiting from my sponsor Lifesaving Food joins me to share a letter he and other food storage distributors received from Readywise Food regarding price hikes and supply chain concerns. If there's something you anticipate needing/wanting in the next year or so, now may be the time to get it.

Of all the battles being fought around us, the one in which each of us has a stake is the war that's being waged against reality. Vasko Kohlmayer does a terrific job of describing the great struggle of our time and how we are being required to reject reality.

The term "enemy of the state" carries some pretty serious baggage. However, as Jeff Minnick explains, once you understand what the state is up to in regards to separating you from your natural rights, being labeled an enemy of the state should be a badge of honor.

Eric Peters from Eric Peters Autos drops by today to talk about rising food prices and the shrinking circle of things we're still allowed to do. Eric has a solid take on what's going on as well as a number of highly workable suggestions for what each of us can do to improve our personal situation.

If you've ever wondered how those who lived under the Third Reich could have become conditioned to accept the inhuman treatment of others, take a look around you. The goal may be different but the process of dehumanization is taking place right before us. Pedro Gonzalez spells out how the impending mass firing of the unvaccinated is opening a door that has been sealed shut for more than 75 years.

Every single one of us faces a moment of decision when we must choose whether to go along with something we know is wrong, to remain silent in the face of it, or to walk away from it. The past 20 months have given us a lot of opportunities to experience this firsthand. Thomas Luongo says it's time for all good men to stop fearing John Galt.

Would you recognize tyranny if it came calling? Jeffery A. Tucker has a marvelous primer on the truth about tyranny and how the driving force authentic tyranny isn't always a dictator. Often it comes at the hands of our neighbors, coworkers, family and friends.

The current 'woke' revolution portrays itself as a response and solution to injustice, yet it creates more injustice than it solves. Bari Weiss has a terrific article about how we got here because of cowardice and it will require courage to get us out.

Violence has been on the rise for the past year or so and firearms and ammo sales have been running at a record pace as people realize the state either cannot or will not protect them. Tim Larkin has a timely bit of advice on the difference between social aggression and and asocial violence. If you're taking responsibility for your own protection, this is some of the best information you'll ever get.

One of the hardest truths you can face as an individual is the realization that no one is coming to save you. On the other hand, it's exactly the kind of thing that can motivate us to do the right thing. M.E. Boyd explains how the time has come to nobly save or meanly lose our republic.

Public schools have been hemorrhaging students for the past year and a half. School closures and lockdown policies have definitely taken their toll but the DOJ stepping up to treat parents like potential terrorists hasn't exactly helped either. Kerry McDonald says another massive fall exodus from U.S. public schools is underway and that's a boon for proponents of school choice.

As I've watched the seasons begin to shift from summer to fall/pre-winter, I've had a very strong sense that humanity itself is entering a new and uncertain season. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one picking up on this vibe. Bretigne Schaffer has a marvelous commentary about a change in the weather and why it's cause for optimism.

The economic, political, social and cultural situation in the U.S. and for much of the West is getting increasingly volatile. Doug Casey says America is headed into a Fourth Turning and wonders what the U.S. will look like in another 50 years.
