By Li Jun, Sixth Tone The country’s extremely online feminists are ditching movement building to go all-in on shaming people for their lack of ‘uterine morality.’ What if there was a program allowing the government to go around collecting sperm from good-looking, smart, healthy men — celebrities, scientists, […]

I’m neither an LP member nor an orthodox libertarian, so I don’t get a “vote” in this. But this is what a real “subversive” movement would look like: First, openly and unabashedly attack the Israeli and Saudi lobbies and US subsidies to these countries, which will immediately have […]
