    You'd think that someone on Team Social Justice might have anticipated this, especially since it's exclusively a problem for women. Men in women's sports = men win Women in men's sports = men win Maybe they're not very clever.

    Alright (I didn't follow that event so I'll just assume your description of it is correct), but that has nothing to do with national political issues. Never, to my knowledge, has the fact that Americans own guns prevented the state from implementing any significant policy. Nor is there any reason to think that this will happen in the future. Despite all the 1776-tinged, chest-thumping rhetoric, this is not what the gun control debate is actually about. ...i.e. "a culture war between those who appreciate the value of firearms for self-defense and those who are afraid of loud noises."

    The popular narrative among pro-gun people is that the government wants to take your guns so that they can force you to do things (i.e. things which you might otherwise use your guns to forcefully resist doing). That's nonsense. Virtually all gun owners in this country will obey any law that the government enacts; there is no risk of any armed resistance. Indeed, for the most part, gun owners positively support the egregious actions of this government. So, why is it that government is always pushing gun control? There are millions of people who are struck with terror whenever a shooting occurs and, because they're imbeciles, demand that government "do something" to protect them. These people vote, and elected officials like to get reelected. It's really that simple and un-Machiavellian. This is not to say that the constant push for increased restrictions on the private ownership of firearms isn't a problem, but it isn't the sort of problem that you may have thought it was. There's no impending, righteous uprising by the gun owners of America, in objection to the policies of this government, which the government is desperately trying to prevent; American gun owners are not going to be rising from the couch. There's just a culture war between those who appreciate the value of firearms for self-defense and those who are afraid of loud noises. And this, like all similar divisions, is readily exploited for the purposes of political propaganda.

    The progressive movement in the US was driven by low-church protestants of English stock (yankees). But for Catholic immigration, it would have started earlier.

    And the other half is the half that disliked Bush because he wasn't anti-immigrant enough, and didn't mind that he was a leftist warmonger. ...just as they don't presently mind that Trump is a leftist warmonger, so long as he's sufficiently anti-immigrant (or pretends to be). The Trump base isn't libertarians or anything of the sort; it's nativists, culture-warriors, and Alex Jones aficionados. ...along with the mindless party hacks that you reference.

    Given Rand's statements over the years, going back to articles in his college newspaper, there's no question that he's a libertarian. So, the only possible explanations are: (a) He's politically naive, or (b) He's sold out his principles for perceived personal gain. I don't believe the latter (though a couple more years of this shit might change my mind), so I'm going with the former.

    Republics (by which I assume is meant states without monarchs, whatever their other characteristics) were extremely rare prior to the late 18th century. In antiquity, they existed in the Greek world (i.e. both Greece proper and the colonies), non-Greek Italy (e.g. Rome), and Phoenicia and its colonies (e.g. Carthage). After the collapse of the Roman empire, they formed in parts of Italy (e.g. Venice) and the German-speaking lands (e.g. many cities of the Hansa). Republics were rare because, once formed, they tended to collapse in civil war, resulting in a dictatorship or foreign conquest. It is not coincidental that the greatest pre-modern practitioners of republicanism, the ancient Greeks, were also the first to theorize on its instability.

    That's correct. It requires no courage for a GOP mouthpiece to uncritically regurgitate on official GOP media the empty anti-war promises of a GOP President. Tucker is not an ally (of anyone except the current leftist regime), no more than Glenn Beck. Fuck Tucker, Tucker sucks.

    Rand only harms the liberty movement by continually associating it with this leftist President. I can't imagine no one ever told him this; so I guess he genuinely doesn't get it. I've not yet reached the conclusion that he doesn't care.

    About the relationship between consumer prices and total stock market capitalization: 1. It's definitely true that the stock market has historically outperformed the rise in consumer prices. 2. Some part of this must be a result of Cantillon effects; i.e. newly printed money does not raise prices instantly and evenly, but rather step-by-step from buyer to seller, so that those items closest to the source of the money rise in price faster than those items farther from the source of the money. Since, in our system, new money basically enters the economy via the bond market, it makes sense that it would arrive in the nearby stock market before it arrived at the grocery store. 3. In a free market (contra our system), consumer prices should more or less continually fall (in real terms), which is to say that the wages of labor should more or less continually rise (in real terms). Likewise, and for the same reason, the wages of capital should more or less continually rise; and so it makes sense that total market capitalization (i.e. the wages of capital over time discounted by the prevailing interest rate) would increase in real terms. So, what's odd is not that stock market cap has increased in real terms over the decades, but that it's increased so much faster than real wages (see point #2).

    It's somewhat Darwinian. If a legislative majority is required to govern, then there must be at least one majority party/coalition: else chaos and the system collapses. And, if there's one, there are likely two, since the parties on the outside then have a strong incentive to combine. It's the same in war (which, essentially, politics is).

    Trump isn't a racist, in my opinion; he has no really strong views about anything beyond his hair and the next applause line. The movement which he's managed to gather round himself, on the other hand, is obviously driven in large part by racism. The reemergence of nationalism in the last few years consists in the masses reacting, by scapegoating foreigners, to problems created by the socialistic policies which they themselves have supported (and continue to support). It's just the same psychology that gives rise to "eat the rich" sentiments among the (other) leftist tribe. In neither case is the popular opinion based on any kind of sane appraisal of reality: no need to take these folk religions all that seriously. ...though you might do well to avoid them if they're in a group, yelling about something.
