Hagel vs Totalitarian Humanism

By Paul Gottfried I’ve no idea how former Nebraska senator and decorated Vietnam War veteran Chuck Hagel became President Obama’s preferred nominee for the job of Secretary of Defense.

Why I Don’t Much Like Liberals

By Kevin Carson Although people like Bill O’Reilly habitually refer to establishment liberals as the “far Left,” they are two very different things.

Why Gay Marriage Divides the World

More on the psychological origins of political beliefs: “Other research has found that liberals tend to see moral issues in terms of individual suffering or unfairness, whereas conservatives have more group-level concerns, such as loyalty, patriotism and respect for authority and tradition. Across dozens of countries, liberals are […]

The Libertarian Mind

A new study of the psychology of political beliefs indicates that Pareto was correct when he said that an individual’s political views are as much an indication of their own innate personality type and psychological makeup as much as anything else. In other words, we may be “hard-wired” […]
