A few weeks ago Henry Holt and Company asked me to read and review the latest book by Elizabeth Kolbert, entitled “The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History.” The book had not been released, so the few reviews I was able to find simply made it clear that the “Sixth Extinction” was about the next big extinction (there have been five previous mass extinctions), and that humans were the cause.

I think this illustrates well the libertarian/anarchist position for ending border enforcement. Morally and economically, it is indefensible. “By flouting immigration law, Obama endangers children and enriches smugglers.” That’s the headline from Byron York at the Washington Examiner. That’s right: York is complaining about Obama endangering children and enriching smugglers because he’

The fight over “to vaccinate, or not to vaccinate” seems to be a prevalent debate in libertarian/anarchist circles these days. The online debate has spilled over in to a few recent Reason Magazine articles, as well.

Reason Magazine, a publication with which I generally agree, has an article up about drug use. The article asks, “Why Exactly is Snorting Coke Worse Than Drinking Booze?” Generally speaking, the argument for decriminalizing drugs is based in liberty: it is none of your business what substance I choose to imbibe. Upon full disclosure of the effects, an adult has the right to ingest or pollute his body wi

George Takei, famous for his portrayal of Mr. Sulu in the groundbreaking television and film series Star Trek, and outspoken “gay rights” advocate, wrote on his Facebook page that “transgender rights are human rights.” While I agree that transgender people should be afforded equal rights in all respects, I disagree with the use of the term “transgender rights.” The following exch

From Gina Luttrell: Abortion is ultimately a debate of fundamental definitions. Where does human life deserving of rights begin? That is not something that science can help us with, because that’s not something that we as a society have an agreed-upon definition for. Science gives us data and readouts, not definitions. Definitions are socially constructed by what we all agree to call things…But science cann

Steaua Bucuresti, the most successful and most famous team in all of Romania, was not scheduled to be in town during our trip (although they were scheduled to be in Brasov on the Friday we were in Brasov). Rapid Bucuresti was also scheduled to be out of town. While we considered trying to tie-in our Brasov

The food in Romania was great. When traveling in Europe, I find that if you want to find delicious, traditional food, you often need go no further than the train station. Granted, there will be large, traditional meals that are time consuming to cook, and for those you will want to observe the locals and see where they go. But the train station is always a great way to eat the same food the locals eat on a daily ba

Our first day trip from Bucharest was to Brasov, in Transylvania. It’s a simple train ride from Bucharest, with trains leaving multiple times per day from București Gara de Nord. Gara de Nord is on the yellow line of the metro, so it is easily accessible from all parts of the city. As you can see, the train ticket from Bucharest to Brasov (and back) was 20.25 lei (less than $7.00). Very cheap! Continue R
