The Shoe On The Other Foot

  My kids spent a significant portion of their childhoods growing up in a little town in Idaho. It’s a lot smaller than Tikrit, or Basra or Helmand province, but little Idaho City and Boise County can serve as an illustration of a principle. What principle?

Please Stop Voting To Hurt Other People

Interview With Nomad Capitalist

Andrew Henderson over at NomadCapitalist.com interviewed me for his radio and podcast program. We talk about living life as a permanent traveler, the contrast between countries where prospects are improving rather than diminishing, how weaker countries actually offer greater freedom because they have less ability to coerce and related issues. I hope our discussion stimulates […]

Not Being Governed

Many thanks to the folks over at NotBeingGoverned for featuring my 2,000-word article, Whose Idea of Freedom Should We Use? on their site. These guys are champions of individual freedom who come at the issue from many different perspectives and encourage lively debate. (*cough* intellectual property.) I’m a bit envious of their very busy Facebook […]
