  • Semantics matters. Feminist and feminism are loaded words and so heavily unpopular that we need to be reinvented as something more brave, loving and inclusive, and freedom, being the essential element of feminism is a good place to start. Please let us brainstorm to reinvent, transform or reincarnate the ideas of feminism in a new name.  I’ll start…  Freeminists,  Freedomistas, La Free Movement, Equalism, Libertistas, The Fair and Free, The Equitable movement. EEEkkkkk this is not an easy task, jump in with ideas!!

  • I dutifully watched Atlas Shrugged Part III, which was released on September 12 to local movie theaters. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlas_Shrugged:_Part_III As expected, there were not many people in my theater. I must admit that I have a hard time arguing with the one (somewhat negative) review I have seen: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/review/atlas-shrugged-part-iii-who-732632 The film was obviously fairly low budget, and I did not find the philosophical content much higher or very persuasive. Even if this film was seen by large numbers of people, I doubt they would be very inspired or educated. From that point of view, the high point of the film was where John Galt was being offered great economic power by the US President, when Galt said “that kind of power should not exist”.  But I think that there should have been stronger emphasis on the fact that Galt was being tortured in order to force him to become an economic dictator (under the President).  As portrayed, it simply looked like they were trying to hurt him because they didn’t like what he did or said. I was somewhat turned-off by the masses chanting “We want John Galt” — as if they were looking for a new dictator to replace the President. The movie portrayed a decaying society, but could have better emphasized how modern fascism of regulation is at least as economically destructive as socialism. On a less cerebral level, I was turned-off by the chocolate cake that Dagney and John were eating. Also, John’s partly unshaven face reinforced my impression that for many women being partly unshaven is very sexy.

  • There’s a lot of controversy surrounding the NCAA and whether or not the players should get paid to play. Some critics of the current system say that they should get paid because of the time commitment required. Other critics are OK with them not getting paid but are against the practice of them not being able to receive gifts from recruiters and agents. I think it’s an interesting topic from the liberty perspective because some people might see this as free labor/servitude, which we know can be a controversial topic in a lot of political circles! What do you think about all of it?
