  • My name Is Kyler, and I was a Marksmanship instructor for the United States Marine corps for over 3 years. While there I was sent to a school on how to teach, and how to develop training courses.  I have taught more people to shoot than I can possibly remember, and after a life time spent around weapons I have come to the conclusion that EVERYONE should have proper training. Even those who do not currently own a weapon and have no intention to do so. The training that can be provided over the internet is limited, but there is still a lot we can do. I have a long list of classes I would be willing to make available/teach, and while I may not be able to go out to the range with you and observe your shooting, if you have a friend record you and you take pictures of your target I can analyze it and do personal coaching with you. I don’t know how open the community would be to this idea tho, so please let me know what you think.

  • So, I am in the process of taking an Arab/Israeli conflict class, and the more I think about it, the more I wish I could solve all of this death and destruction in the middle east. In this discussion post, I would like to stay on the Arab – Israeli conflict; primarily those that arose due to Israel becoming a state. (I.e. – The Palestinian refugee problem). Comment your thoughts, and how you think we may could solve all of this conflict across the world.

  • Hello everyone! My name is Darren Wilson and I am out on a mission with one of my College Professors to create a class that discusses the History of Economic Thought. I am looking to create a curriculum where someone with very little economic thought exposure can come to understand economics. I am looking to build my class on analyzing the classics of economic thought. I want this to be a LIBERTY focused class. I want the students to be able to see all sides of the spectrum, but I wish to focus on much of the great Austrian minds and libertarian economic principles that nurture freedom and peace. My Core Objectives Give students an accurate understanding of all the core economic ideas through analysis of classical works Show students that the only economic system to produce true freedom, liberty, and peace is that of the libertarian/Austrian economic approach Continue to foster the principles of true liberty, peace, and freedom within the younger generation Lastly, the main reason that I am writing this post is because I am looking for assistance. I know a lot of the works and have read them of all economic trains of thought; however, I am uncertain as to the organization and works that I wish to include in the class. Essentially I am looking for ideas on what material I should include to allow for the best possible way to show students the strength and power of Capitalism and freedom. This course will be available to Sophomore to Senior level College students. I am hoping not to have them order an excessive amount of books. I hope you all can help me! Also, I was not sure where to post this as this is my first post as I am a new member

  • In the subject of physics, there is no such thing as “Einsteinism;” we do not worship Einstein as if he were a prophet for his contributions to physics. So is it correct to assume that these two words, Marxism and communism, are synonymous? Now, I am well aware that there are probably those who would kiss the ground Marx had walked on for his criticisms of capitalism, and may appropriately be considered then as “Marxists,” but is this also communism in its own right? I don’t know. I’m still trying to wrap my head around this… What do you guys think?
