Minimum Wage and the Handicapped Worker

While there’s no shortage of advocates for a higher minimum wage, many are unaware that the Fair Labor and Standards Act of 1938 allowed for employees with disabilities to be exempt from the federal standard. In doing so, the U.S. government implicitly acknowledged that minimum wage laws destroy jobs, especially those filled by low skilled, uneducated persons.

AOC’s Vision of the Future

The Intercept recently released a video titled, “A Message From the Future With Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.” Set several decades from now, the film seeks to paint a picture of what the world will look like if AOC’s Green New Deal is actually implemented within the next few years. Sadly, it seems that the Intercept forgot that the only place Utopian visions have ever works is the realm of fiction.

Adam Schiff, The Mueller Report, and The Ultimate Ad Hoc Rescue

At long last the bombshell report is finally here! Robert Mueller has concluded his investigation into whether or not the Trump Campaign colluded with the Russian government to steal the election, and much to the dismay of the mainstream media, it didn’t! However, that hasn’t stopped Democratic Representative Adam Schiff and others from claiming that future evidence will certainly show that Trump is guilty. This whole ordeal is a perfect example of the Ad Hoc Rescue Fallacy.

Why Andrew Yang’s Economics Fail

Democratic Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang has been rising in popularity lately, particularly due to his support of a Universal Basic Income (UBI)/Freedom Dividend and a Value Added Tax (VAT). On February 12th, 2019, Yang appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast to explain his policy views. In this video, I debunk the Keynesian assumptions within Yang’s policies and demonstrate why his proposals cannot improve the economy in the long term.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) and the New Spectrum of Privilege

Marxists have long trotted out the bourgeoisie/proletariat dichotomy as an explanation of how everyone is part of a class conflict as old as history. However, when the poor didn’t rise up and overthrow the capitalist class as Marx predicted, they had to retool their ideology.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently went on The Intercept and explained how the new spectrum of privilege has replaced Marx’s original explanation for the modern socialist. However, the ideology remains as false and designed to manipulate fear as ever. Myself and Nightshift10000 debunk her yet again.

What is “Privatization” and Should We Privatize Schools?

The YouTube channel Knowing Better recently released a video called “Privatizing Public Services | Prisons and Schools.” The video argued that public services should privatized, in particular, by showing that charter schools are under performing compared to public schools. However, the relevant question is, what does it really mean to privatize something, and does the government contracting an otherwise private business constitute privatization? I content that the answer is no.

What Aquaman Teaches about Government

For the first video of 2019, we’re reviewing the DC Comics blockbuster Aquaman. I loved this movie. Not only is it action packed with a great story line, but Amber Heard’s performance makes the film both sexy and a stunning success.

However, much like Black Panther, Aquaman presents the Kingdom of Atlantis as an impossibly advanced society. There is no way a kingdom which is ruled by a hereditary monarchy, where the monarch is chosen in ritual combat, would advance and prosper for thousands of years.

Aquaman is yet another reason to get people thinking about how prosperity and advancement comes from free interaction and free markets.

The Case for Anarcho-Communism Debunked (w/ Nightshift10000)

Joined again by my elite level patron Nightshift10000, we review a video called “The Case for Anarchist Communism” from the channel Christopher Szabo. Anarcho-Communism is and ideological oxymoron. In such a society, if an individual decided to create a commodity and sell it for a profit, other members of the collective could either use force to stop him or not use force to stop him. If the former, the society is not an anarchy. If the latter, it is not a communist society.

What Exactly is Hate Speech Anyways?

patreon sargon

Popular YouTuber Carl Benjamin (aka Sargon of Akkad) has been banned from Patreon.

By now, I’m assuming everyone has heard that Patreon has banned several prominent YouTubers, including Sargon of Akkad.  The reason?  Well, as author Raymond Wong, writing for Mashable, puts it, Sargon is “a scumbag human” (Wong, 2018, para. 2).  Interesting that Wong used this terminology for Sargon since he opened his article saying that the ban was against “alt-right and far right content creators” (para. 1).  Being as charitable as possible to those that want to characterize Sargon as far right, one could call Sargon a centrist.

At the end of the day, Patreon is a private corporation, and they are free to operate their service as they see fit.  However, it’s clear that this censorship is nothing more than Patreon taking a stand against particular individuals that they don’t like.  The only explanation Patreon gave for Sargon’s ban is that he violated their guidelines against “hate speech” (Gilbert, 2018, para. 11).

I’ll never cease to be baffled by people who try to argue for the censorship of commentators based on so-called hate speech.  No one ever seems to have a clear definition of what constitutes hate speech.  Some people say that it is speech that calls for violence against others.  However, under this definition, simply claiming that there are only two genders isn’t hate speech.  Right?

Well, it’s not calling for violence necessarily.  It’s speech that may incite violence against others even if violence is never explicitly called for.  But that would mean that Maxine Waters calling for Democrats to harass any and all conservatives that they meet is hate speech.  Right?

At the end of the day, hate speech always means nothing more than speech that disagrees with mainstream progressive speech, no matter how respectfully and peacefully stated.  People on the political left only believe in one fundamental right, and that is the right to agree with them.  Dissension cannot be allowed and must be silenced, even if it means interfering with the right of Sargon’s fans to voluntarily exchange their money for his videos and other content.

Isn’t it rather hateful for people like Raymond Wong to call Sargon a scumbag human?  It certainly can’t be any less hateful than using slurs that are deemed racial or homophobic by the left.  However, Mr. Wong thinks his statements about Sargon are perfectly acceptable.  He finishes his article by praising Patreon for their actions, saying that it is an important step in stopping people like Sargon from advancing their “phony bullshit” (Wong, 2018, para. 12).

Well Mr. Wong, I happen to think that your position is phony bullshit.  However, I will never advocate that you be forcibly silenced or that you be cut off from your primary source of income just for expressing opinions which I disagree with.  Rather, I think it is far simpler to explain why your ideas are so idiotic.  I find it telling that people on your side prefer censorship.

Using an ambiguous term like hate speech to justify censorship is yet another example of just how little confidence leftists have in the strength of their ideas.  Like all statists, they refuse to explain why they have the right to censor content that disagrees with them, but their opponents do not have the right to do the same.  This is not about hate, violence, or anything else.  It is about progressives using a mob mentality to consolidate their government power over every sector of life.

For those of you who may think that Patreon’s actions are evidence that state intervention is needed on the internet, think again.  That’s exactly what the progressives want you to conclude.  I’ve already written about that here, but what’s important to note is that a competitor to Patreon has since risen up in SubscribeStar.  I’ve created an account there and would appreciate your support if you’re able.

I’ll never advocate that private companies be prevented from banning users for stupid reasons.  However, I will continue to point out that their reasons are inconsistent and stupid.  The beauty of the free market is that competition will always ensure that a new platform rises up to accommodate demand.  It’s why the left wants to do away with the free market in favor of government.

And that is my 2 cents.  Take it for what it’s worth.

Prager University’s Hypocrisy on Government

prager u.jpg

Prager University produces short videos arguing for conservative political positions.

Before I begin this article, let me quickly say that Prager University has put out some very good videos in the past, particularly regarding basic economics. That being said, on many occasions I’ve been downright disgusted with material that the platform has put out. Besides endorsing opportunist frauds like Candace Owens, Prager University routinely endorses using government force to achieve ends it sees as in the common interest of Americans (i.e. collectivism). However, like most statists, they never really explain why the government is justified in using force to achieve their desired ends but not the ends of their leftist opponents.

Earlier today, Prager University released a video that was hosted by General Chuck Wald. The video sought to explain why America spends so many tax dollars on the state of Israel and why it ought to spend more. The video is below for those interested, but to sum it up, Wald argues that America ought to provide funding to Israel because it is a peaceful, democratic ally in the Middle East. Funding Israel serves both Israeli and American national security interests.

I will not be arguing whether or not General Wald’s assertions in this video are true or false. Wald could very well be correct in his assertion that money given to Israel will help achieve ends that are beneficial to both Israel and the United States. However, even if his assertions are true, the pertinent question is, should Americans be required to give their hard-earned money to the government of Israel whether they like it or not?

If we were having a discussion about abortion, I have no doubt that Dennis Prager and his team would speak out aggressively against it. In fact, you don’t have to imagine. Lila Rose of Live Action has previously done a video for Prager University about Planned Parenthood, and in the course of her video, she emphasized the injustice of the fact that Americans are forced to fund Planned Parenthood whether they want to or not.

However, comparing Rose’s video to Wald’s puts Prager University in an interesting position. On one hand, they argue that American citizens should not be forced to give money to an organization like Planned Parenthood against their will. However, they turn around and argue that Americans should be forced to fund the military activities of Israel whether they want to or not.

Tell me Prager University. Why is the government justified in using force to make American citizens fund the state of Israel, but not the activities of Planned Parenthood?

My guess is that their answer would be that Planned Parenthood is a deceptive and immoral organization, responsible for the murder of millions of unborn children, while Israel is a free democracy whose furthered existence benefits all Americans. However, if we were having a discussion with a liberal, they would undoubtedly tell you just the opposite. The liberal would say that Israel is an oppressive, apartheid regime that cruelly abuses the Palestinian people, while Planned Parenthood is a just organization that provides healthcare to women and leads to lower crime rates in America.

There is no doubt that there are many people who agree very strongly with Prager University or with the liberal in my example above, but that’s the point. While many people disagree about what the government should do with its power, they all agree that the government should have the power to force its citizens to fund things against their will. This is why I have over and over reminded people that the same government that has the power to give you everything you want is a government that has the power to take everything that you have.

I’ll say again that my purpose in writing this article is not to argue against the state of Israel or to argue for Planned Parenthood. I’ve made my stance on abortion very clear in this video series, and I’ve on occasion touched on the Israel/Jewish Question. However, the problem that Prager University does not seem to realize is that when you argue that the government should have the power to force its citizens to fund endeavors they disagree with, what consistent argument are you going to give as to why it is unjustified in pointing a gun at you and forcing you to fund something you disagree with?

As much as I deplore anti-Semitism, I do not think anti-Semites should be forced to give their money to fund the activities of Israel. As much as I deplore many forms of Zionism, I do not think Zionists should be prevented from donating their own money to Jewish causes. Regardless of how strongly you may believe you are right in your assertions, whatever position you take, you must first justify why it is that you and people who agree with you are justified in using force against others, but those who disagree with you are not.

While I share the same values as many of my conservative friends, this is a question I believe all conservatives seriously need to consider. I believe once they do, they will see that Libertarianism is the only position that can be consistently lived out in society. All statists want to use force against others. They just don’t want others to use force against them.

I hope you can see the problem.

And that is my 2 cents. Take it for what it’s worth.
