Max’s Views: Project Censored: ****

“The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum.” -Noam Chomsky We’ve heard a lot about Fake News recently. But “Project Censored” exposes an even bigger problem than Fake News: Real News. The news is pure trash. The only possible way that...

Offshore Incorporated: *** A few years back, Conservatives believed in the positive power of the free market. Their fundamental mission was to keep meddling government out of the way of business. Meanwhile, Liberals believed in the positive power of government. Their fundamental mission was to use the power of the State to keep naughty corporations...

State of Marriage

Max’s Views: ** It’s amazing how quickly and completely the Gay Marriage movement conquered the Western World. Gay marriage activists went from a disdained minority around the turn of the century to undisputed champions by 2015. The Gay Marriage lobby is the NRA of the Left. Like the NRA, the Gay Marriage lobby won legislative and court victo...

What the Health

Max’s Views ***1/2   Everybody has an opinion about which foods are good for you and which are bad. Most people will claim that their diet is healthy and they’ll urge you to try eating like them.   I listen to what people say, but I don’t believe them. When it comes to food, people are passionate and biased. And no one really knows for su...

Max’s Views: The Truth About Alcohol

The Truth About Alcohol **1/2 They say alcohol is a poison. And I suppose that’s technically true. But it isn’t that dangerous a poison. I know this because I have been to the UK a few times. And I can tell you from firsthand experience that there are, in fact, elderly people there. If some British people made it to old age, then it is a proven fac...

After five days of arson and looting, the combined forces of police, National Guard, and army troops were finally able to enforce the 9pm curfew and reestablish order. Thank goodness for those ar...

Now on Netflix The Battered Bastards of Baseball **** Tim Tebow is one of the most famous sports figures in America. He is best known for being Christian, but he actually plays sports from time to time as well. Tebow was a star quarterback for the University of Florida. Then he was a lousy quarterback in the NFL.

Now on Netflix Oklahoma City ***1/2 When the media talks about a terrorist, they are supposed to say that he is a brainwashed coward. Yup. According to the talking heads on CNN and Fox, every terrorist is the same: cowardly and crazy. I don’t know why it is against the rules of society to be honest about terrorism. The truth is that some terrorists...

Americans Who Are Anti-Israel Aren’t Anti-Semitic

In a world full of nightmarishly terrible countries (Saudi Arabia, Iran, Belarus, South Sudan, Central Africa Republic, North Korea, Syria), it is strange that the most hated is Israel. It is objectively true that the people living in the West Bank and Gaza are oppressed. It is objectively false that Israel is more barbaric and less restrained than...

Now on Netflix Boom Bust Boom **** By now, anybody who can sit through an economics lesson knows how the 2008 financial meltdown happened. Banks assumed that housing prices would continue to go up forever, so they lent money to new homeowners who couldn’t afford the loans. Then the banks sold the loans to other banks and to private investors. This...
