  • So, we are living in a new renaissance of TV.  I mean Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Breaking Bad, etc.   Aside from the fact that all of these shows tend to have Libertarian undertones, it seems that the lack of broadcast television gatekeepers has opened up this new level media quality from writing to acting.  Could it just be that markets are opening up and competition is forcing a better quality show, or is it something more?  What are your thoughts on this shift from cable and broadcast TV that affects both consumption and production?  Am I right in my observation?

  • Over the past five months or so, I admit I’ve been intrigued—indeed, perhaps obsessed—with the American elections. More specifically, I’ve been fascinated by the Trump phenomenon and by the stunning hordes of people that either support him and hate him. The time I’ve spent learning about American Democracy has made me realize that my previous opposition to statism as a whole, as well as my rejection of voting on principle, was founded on abstract and philosophical discussion alone. I had an utter lack of experience and interest in politics. Throughout my whole life, the political process has seemed hopelessly corrupt and out of reach. It was easy for me to conclude that voting was hopelessly pointless and probably immoral.

Before I make that case however, let me lay down two essential facts that have propelled me to this point. The Voluntaryst Self Defense Case for Voting Trump

  • A new TV show coming out next month called “Colony” shows some promise.  It takes place in Los Angeles in some unknown future.  A large wall envelopes the city, and inside it is a police state.  The story surrounds a man and his family trying to make ends meet.  Society has been split in two:  those who collaborate and those who resist.  Collaborate with who?  They have yet to be revealed, but the evidence provided is some alien race. (I assume, hence the name “Colony”). When one character was asked about the need of the police state, he says, “You have to have some controls, otherwise there would be anarchy.” It shows promise.
