  • Hello everyone! As you can see, my name is Adam and I am an aspiring journalist. I have always had a knack for the creativity and awe inspiring nature of wordsmith code. I understand the power and truth that comes with writing down words. After all, the pen is mightier than the sword. Originally, I wanted to go to law school. However, after seeing the insolvency of the system and the massive debt, I realized how much of a mistake that would be. I now want to pursue a career as a journalist because I care about the truth, something that most journalists, sadly enough, do not care about in today’s world. Here is the thing: I don’t want to go into student loan debt. I’ve realized that journalism school is pretty useless. Most (if not all) of what you learn can be obtained through real-world experience and books. As a matter of fact, I feel as though I have more experience than most journalism students. For one thing, I have my own column that I edit and operate. The column is connected to a watchdog group here in Vegas. I intern for a new journalism start-up company, and I was just hired as a part-time writer and blogger for a new Bitcoin start-up. Needless to say, I’ve gained a lot and I’m still in my early to mid 20s! Here is my question: what can I do to become a journalism without becoming part of the system? I know there are a ton of great writers and authors here, and I’m hoping one of them would be willing to mentor me. If you have any advice at all, please share it with me. I want to learn from as many individuals as I possibly can. For liberty, -Adam Sanacore

  • Can anyone explain praxeology?  Perhaps some of its main, generalized applications and some of the counter-arguments?  My understanding is pretty limited, and I think it would make for good discussion.
