Kooks on the Right: A Libertarian Example

Written by Gary North on September 8, 2014

Every movement has its share of fringe people. There is a bell-shaped curve of brilliant people, normal people, and outright kooks. The interesting thing that I find in my life is that I get outraged emails only from the kooks. I don’t get emails that are highly critical from people who have written a book […]

Ebola Has Been Underestimated — WHO

Posted on August 25, 2014

As West Africa’s Ebola toll climbed by another 142 cases and 77 deaths today, the World Health Organization (WHO) conceded that the size of the epidemic has been underestimated and cited a list of reasons for that, from concealment and denial of cases to the closing of treatment centers and clinics. Also today, the WHO’s […]

Written by Gary North on August 21, 2014

“There, but for the grace of God, go I.” I don’t know when I first heard that, but it was many decades ago. From time to time, we are reminded of its truth. I begin with an example of poor timing. KISS lead performer Gene Simmons, on July 31, gave an interview. This part was […]

Piketty Cut to Ribbons, Slice by Slice

Written by Gary North on August 4, 2014

Thomas Piketty, a French Marxist, got rich this year on book royalties. That his unreadable 700-page book got a huge market will go down as one of the great mysteries of early 21st-century capitalism. We have seen nothing like this since Tiny Tim sang Tiptoe Through the Tulips. That the world of the Left literati […]

Cranky Fred Reed Asks Bothersome Questions of a Darwinist

Posted on July 29, 2014

Over the years I have occasionally expressed doubts over the tenets of evolutionism which, perhaps wrongly, has seemed to me a sort of political correctness of science, or maybe a metaphysics somewhat related to science. As a consequence I have been severely reprehended. The editor of a site devoted to genetic expression furiously began deleting […]

A Simple Test for Deciding Which Charitable Organization to Support

Written by Gary North on July 28, 2014

By now you know that I am convinced that YouTube (free), when combined with WordPress.com (free), is a powerful tool for education, mobilization, recruiting, and everything else connected with communications. This includes charities. I am also convinced that, despite the hundreds of millions of videos and websites out there, almost nobody is systematically using YouTube […]
