    Well, obviously, wheelchair seats are not themselves sufficiently wheelchair-accessible. Reported for ableism.

    Occam's Banana started a thread Timothy Dexter in History
    Why have I never heard of this absolute legend before? Timothy Dexter Timothy Dexter (January 22, 1747 – October 23, 1806) was an American businessman noted for his writing and eccentricity. Biography Dexter was born in Malden in the Province of Massachusetts Bay. He had little schooling and dropped out of school to work as a farm laborer at the age of eight. When he was 16, he became a tanner's apprentice. In 1769, he moved to Newburyport, Massachusetts. He married 32-year-old Elizabeth Frothingham, a rich widow, and bought a mansion.

    The Problem With Weak Libertarians Meat's back on the menu, boys. The LPKY tweet really shined a light on who's serious about liberty and who isn't. Combine this with a couple of personal battles I've had with bitch-ass libertarians, and it led to this video where I explain how they harm the movement and need to sit the fuck down. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8KVLjZkWzs

    Reach the Remnant This was a script that I've had on the back burner for a few weeks. I was inspired by the Gina Carano stuff to finally bust it out. Basically, I talk about Albert Jay Nock's essay "Isaiah's Job" and his conception of the Remnant. I explain how the Remnant should influence libertarian politics and how we view the world. Our primary goal should always be to reach the remnant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhEAQCsSFfU

    Make Liberty Happen In this video, I talk about things that you can do to help jumpstart the liberty movement. These range from content production, to LP involvement, to the New Hampshire Free State Project. I want to be clear that I don't think anyone is obligated to do anything. Toplobsta and Logan Shepherd did not pay me to talk about them, those were both out of the kindness of my heart. I will not give any more shout-outs to anyone who asks for them in the future. If I like what you do, I might mention you, but not because you asked me to. Daniel's merch site: https://www.toplobsta.com/​

    School is Prison School is awful? School is just like prison? No, school IS prison. There are a lot more bad words in this video than usual but this is a pretty important subject to me, as I think becomes obvious as the video goes along. School is prison, and most parents worship them and happily send their kids. It's a travesty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXBH56xCn6Q

    How I Became a Libertarian Short on time this week so I just made a video talking about how I became a libertarian. I'm always interested in other people's stories of how they became libertarians. I may incorporate being on camera in future videos but this is probably as vloggy as I will ever get. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wo2ccerHeOM

    The Cult of Political Pseudoscience In this video, I talk about science, the scientific method, rationality, and how politics corrupts science. I'll be honest, I was concerned with how this was going to turn out when I was making it, but I think came together very well and is probably my favorite video so far. This video isn't *exclusively* about COVID science, but that is the prime example of what I'm talking about. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3DK44Fi9Tk

I won't post all of them here, just the ones that involve scripted commentary. If you're interested, you can go to his YouTube channel for Q&A videos and assorted other stuff.

    If by "viable solution" you mean some X such that "do X and the Cathedral will lose or be destroyed or neutralized", then I don't think there is any such "viable solution". But to paraphrase Michael Malice: "While it is possible the Cathedral will win, it is impossible that the Cathedral must win." The Cathedral is not omnipotent - and its obliviously limited self- and situational awareness is its greatest weakness. Like the emperor who has no clothes, if the Cathedral fails, then the Cathedral itself will have been the chief catalyst of that failure. It is the job of the Cathedral's enemies to vigorously encourage and exploit reaction catalyzed by the Cathedral, more than to devise and implement some particular "solution" to it.

    You recently (and quite correctly) evinced skepticism of the notion that "people stop wanting money after $45 million". So why would members of Congress stop wanting more money, regardless of any "ends-meeting" raises they may have given themselves? Influence peddlers gonna peddle influence. Influence buyers gonna buy influence. The more power the government has, the more influence it will have to sell - and the more buyers will try to outbid each other for it (where "more" is relative to both the number of bidders and the sizes of their bids). Concocting rules to get rid of such "soft" money (or in-kind "contributions") will merely result in yet "softer" money that will simply find some way of getting around the rules (assuming such self-imposed rules are actually even enforced in anything more than a self-serving and desultorily partisan manner to begin with, which requires quite a stretch of gullibility ). File "pay raise with conflict-of-interest rules vis--vis other income" under "deck-chair rearrangement schemes that do absolutely nothing to significantly reduce the power and scope of government" - right along with things like term limits and campaign finance reform. At best, these things will accomplish nothing more than changing the details of how (but not at all changing how much) influence is peddled.
