Why I Don’t Do New Year’s Resolutions

In this video I explain why I don’t participate in New Year’s Resolutions, and why I think they are largely just a tool for making people temporarily feel good about themselves.

Thanks to my Patrons!

Debunking Allyson Rowe’s Bad Marriage Advice

Took another look at beauty queen turned ministry leader Allyson Rowe. I really want to believe she has good intentions with what she does on her YouTube channel, but the bad advice she’s giving out is sure to have consequences for many women (and men) who take her advice.

Race, Ideas & Meritocracy: A Lesson from Genghis Khan

I apologize about the audio in this video. I was sick when I recorded, and did my best to try and make it audible. In this video I share my views on the controversial subject of race, and explain how I believe meritocracy is what matters, regardless of racial demographics. A great lesson can be learned from the historical figure Genghis Khan.

Money vs. Currency

I was recently asked who would be responsible for printing money in an Anarcho-Capitalist society. To answer that question we first have to make the important distinction between “money” and “currency.” Once we do, it quickly becomes clear that private central banks are not necessary for the creation of money. They only want you to think they are.

How Criminology Exposes the Left

Those on the political left frequently ignore evidence contrary to their theories or find ways to blame the failure of their theories on their political opponents. In this video, I show how the field of criminology is one such area where leftists have embraced failed theories in order to further consolidate their power.
