Noam Chomsky Articles, Libertarian News, Being Libertarian, OpEd News

Unfortunately, no single news source tells the whole truth, so I have been forced to use articles from both libertarian and leftist sources to get to the truth. I urge readers to go through the articles, read them for yourselves and come to your own conclusions. I am presenting stuff you can’t get in mainstream news here at my blog. Noam Chomsky is somebody who has done some deep thinking about current events. To open links to another page, R-click on the link to open.

  • Economic Creationism
    Creationism has lost the argument in the public square. Any biologist working to understand life-related phenomena has no choice but to take seriously Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection. That is, all of the apparent design and purposefulness that we observe in the biosphere, from a bird’s wings to a shark’s fins to a […]Economic Creationism was first posted on October 23, 2019 at 1:06 pm.
  • Who is to Blame for the Dangers of Being a Cop?
    My colleague sent me a blog post of the wife of a cop who was lamenting the dangers that her husband faces in his profession.  I get it, it’s got to be nerve-racking having a loved one with a job where there are serious health and life risks.  But this blog post annoyed me.  It’s not so […]Who is to Blame for the Dangers of Being a Cop? was first posted on October 23, 2019 at 6:00 am.
  • Trump: US May Have to Go to War With Iran Soon
    Speaking to reporters at the White House on Monday, President Trump bragged about his efforts to try to get the US “out of wars,” then warned that “we may have to get in wars, too. OK?“ Trump continued on talking about how ready the US is for a war with Iran, and how Iran will […]Trump: US May Have to Go to War With Iran Soon was first posted on October 22, 2019 at 8:24 am.
  • How Socialized Medicine Kills The Patient & Robs The Taxpayer
    [Editor’s Note: The following is excerpted from Thomas DiLorenzo’s book The Problem with Socialism] When it comes to something as important as healthcare, the last thing anyone should want is for the entire system to become a government-run monopoly. […] In fact, socialist healthcare is based almost entirely on deception. It works this way: patients […]How Socialized Medicine Kills The Patient & Robs The Taxpayer was first posted on October 22, 2019 at 7:34 am.
  • Gang Members Quarreling to Remove their Boss
    Every four years we’re told the same story. You have to choose who to have as chief of your ruling class, and since you get an option, that somehow justifies them extorting us and steering our lives, while kidnapping and murdering those who dare reject their demands. So it will be in 2020: Will Trump […]Gang Members Quarreling to Remove their Boss was first posted on October 22, 2019 at 6:00 am.
  • WATCH: School Officials Plead with Cop to Stop Attacking 11yo Girl with Special Needs
    Farmington, NM — A veteran Farmington police officer was allowed to quietly resign this month in a move to escape accountability after horrifying video footage showed him attacking an 11-year-old girl with special needs. The incident unfolded on August 27, but the officer’s lapel camera video has only just been released. It is nothing short […]WATCH: School Officials Plead with Cop to Stop Attacking 11yo Girl with Special Needs was first posted on October 21, 2019 at 7:51 pm.
  • Julian Assange Breaks Into Tears as He Is Denied Delay in Extradition Trial
    WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange appeared in court today in London in hopes of delaying his US extradition case. The judge told Assange he will not have any extra time to gather evidence to help his case, and the hearing will start in February as planned. Reports of the trial sounded grim, Assange was holding back tears while […]Julian Assange Breaks Into Tears as He Is Denied Delay in Extradition Trial was first posted on October 21, 2019 at 7:43 pm.
  • What if the Police Don’t Identify Themselves?
    Anyone who pays attention to cases involving police shootings, especially those that result in a fatality, has noticed that the narrative we first hear coming from the press soon changes. It is no different in the case of Atatiana Jefferson, who was gunned down through a closed window in her home on October 12, after a neighbor called police […]What if the Police Don’t Identify Themselves? was first posted on October 21, 2019 at 7:15 am.
  • War-Hawks Use Nationalist Dogma as Red Herring to Cover Their War Crimes
    The gang in chief has always taken great pleasure in manipulating language to their advantage. They call themselves a “government” rather than a “gang”, “politicians” rather than “gang members”, and their activities “taxation”, “arrest” and “capital punishment” rather than “robbery”, “kidnapping” and “murder”, respectively. So it is also with the term “country”, used to imply […]War-Hawks Use Nationalist Dogma as Red Herring to Cover Their War Crimes was first posted on October 20, 2019 at 9:39 pm.
  • If Joker Met Jordan Peterson: What separates a monster from a hero?
    What does it take to turn an ordinary person into a monster? To create a mass shooter, a terrorist, a Joker? According to Joker himself, “One bad day.” That’s how he tells his own story in Batman: The Killing Joke, a 1988 graphic novel by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland. This classic origin story heavily influenced […]If Joker Met Jordan Peterson: What separates a monster from a hero? was first posted on October 20, 2019 at 8:59 pm.

  • Post-debate Democratic polling favors Biden
    In four polls taken since the October 15th debate, former Vice President Joe Biden has lead by an average of more than 8 points over primary challenger Elizabeth Warren and the field. The race had drawn close prior to the debate, with Warren leading for the first time per RealClearPolitics average on October 8th. While […] The post Post-debate Democratic polling favors Biden appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • YouTube throttling presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard
    At 4:00 PM EST today, Conservative comedian Steven Crowder and his late-night show team broke what may prove to be the most damning evidence against “big tech” in terms of its political censorship. They discovered that YouTube began actively hiding content from Congresswoman and Democratic Candidate for President Tulsi Gabbard’s YouTube channel. While this isn’t […] The post YouTube throttling presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard appeared first on Being Libertarian.

  • Misconceptions of Early Economic Thought
    Adam Smith’s work is widely regarded as the beginning of modern, pro-capitalist economic thought, with Smith gaining such titles as the “Father of Economics,” and the “Father of Capitalism.” Prior to Smith, a majority of economic thought is typically considered to be rather hostile to what we would refer to today as free market economics. […] The post Misconceptions of Early Economic Thought appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • Baker’s Vaping Ban Could Be Overturned On Monday
    Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker’s temporary ban on the sale of vaping products may be ruled illegal by a Massachusetts judge. The ban has been challenged in court by a lawsuit aiming to score an injunction. The ban caused an immediate uproar from “vape shop” owners who sell cigarette alternatives to the public. With the entire […] The post Baker’s Vaping Ban Could Be Overturned On Monday appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • Is Freedom Enough? – Opting Out
    Is purely the idea of individual freedom and property rights enough to build a movement/identity around in these times? It’s not obvious that that idea of individual freedom itself, devoid of cultural, topical or historical context, has much emotional purchase beyond people like us – people who have the inherent proclivity for getting passionate about […] The post Is Freedom Enough? – Opting Out appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • Winners & Losers of the Fourth Democratic Debate
    Of the twelve candidates on the debate stage last night, only eight have qualified for debate number five. This could be the last of these events for a few candidates, but will it offer the springboard any of them seek? As for those on top, the goal is to stay on message and outlast the […] The post Winners & Losers of the Fourth Democratic Debate appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • Radical Cannabis Bill Introduced In Pennsylvania
    Shortly after Pennsylvania Lt. Governor John Fetterman went on a statewide “listening tour” to hear what Pennsylvanians think about legalizing marijuana, Governor Tom Wolf announced his support for decriminalization. Now, Senate Bill 350 aims to do just that.  Introduced by Democratic state senators Daylin Leach and Sharif Street, Pennsylvania Senate Bill 350 includes measures towards […] The post Radical Cannabis Bill Introduced In Pennsylvania appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • False! Fact Checking The Fourth Democrat Debate
    In a debate fairly devoid of substance, factual statements were a bit scarce. Still, we can look at a few of the definitive or implied statements made by the leading Democrats running for President from the October debate. Warren, on a wealth tax on billionaires: “The really, really billionaires are making their money off their […] The post False! Fact Checking The Fourth Democrat Debate appeared first on Being Libertarian.
  • William Barr’s Speech on Religious Freedom – Red Dirt Liberty Report
    "By eliminating government as the arbiter of values and repealing laws that entrench values, we can instead have the law protect the individual to select their own values," writes Danny Chabino in this edition of the Red Dirt Liberty Report.
