Fun fact: until recently, I had never engaged people on the topic of abortion. Living in a red state, I have had little contact with the baby killers. I also tended to avoid the topic; perhaps I subconsciously knew I would hate the results.
Honestly, I was inclined to believe that things are the way they are because of inertia and Wendy Davis.
I was wrong.

Though my relationship with the ideology has been stormy to say the least, I ultimately concede my politics and philosophy to be libertarian.
Despite my blatant polemics, inevitably I uphold liberty, the quality to control one’s actions, as the highest end. Human society cannot work without human action, the limitations of civilization require a degree of freedom for it’s citizenry. A coherent society must seek and maintain a middle ground between these two forces. While I maintain that our current incoherence is due to embracing individual hedonism over social standards, I cannot agree with an argument that the hierarchy must always supersede the individual. From what I have seen, to invert the poisoned beliefs underling the anarchist milieu will only serve to accomplish the very same deconstruction of both man and state.
That said, I find that there is no limit of charlatans and morons willing to remind me why I took issue with libertarianism to begin with.

In an ongoing crusade to distract us from our total lack of self or cultural identity, the West now comes to face the latest crisis-that-isn’t: food insecurity.
For someone who struggles to make $50 a week for provisions, Paul’s attire is pretty trendy. I wager that jacket could secure him a few weeks of “nutritional food,” alone.
Let me introduce my readers to what could easily be the most punchable face I’ve ever seen.
Author John Green’s enlightened argument against common sense doesn’t help the case against his face. Especially when his “enlightenment” translates to seeing your crotch as a whole grain cereal.
On April 4th an “indigenous” woman by the ridiculously indigenous name of Xochitl Sandoval at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign threatened to kill herself over some words on clothing. No, seriously. In her formal letter to the school she spends a paragraph detailing how she would blow her mediocre brains out on the quad.
A race joke by Stephen Colbert has massively triggered biscuit-headed attention whore Suey Park. This has created something resembling news on the social networks.
The overreaction and ridiculous twitter crusade reveals to us a culture that is utterly devoid of political dialectic. Chop Suey’s butthurt also hilariously proves the stereotype that Asians have as difficult a time with humor as they do with sounding out “L.”
A North Carolina school is being criticized for caring about a child’s safety more than appealing to the hipster and single-motherhood demographic (i.e. liberals).
Unfortunately named 9-year-old Grayson Bruce was apparently too busy being a special snowflake to get the hint regarding social hierarchy. Recognizing this, the child was told by Buncombe Country Schools to stop making himself a target and to stop bringing his My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic backpack to school.
The pudgy modern face of bravery.
Mom is upset, of course.
Dad is absent, of course.
Old but gold, today’s article comes from a December 2013 episode of the O’Reilly Factor. The subject: a federal judge’s ruling on polygamy in Utah.
Bill O’Reilly presents us the modern, toothless, “conservative” take on not conserving much of anything in America. Andrew Napolitano offers the unbrutal and hypocritical “libertarian” perspective on the erosion of our liberty.
Both men would rather appeal to their cow-brained demo than try and discuss the serious issues underlying our culture today. Of course.
Trigger Warning: Modern Realpolitik
Behold, the stupidest thing I have seen today… And it’s 2am. Dammit.
Trigger Warning: Jen Sorenson
1. Funny how “freedom” when dealing with human actors always becomes something inherently unequal. Jen ignores this. Of course. Jen instead projects a conception of freedom that involves reality catering to her wants. Of course.
