    Free speech on campus: Is it in danger? | FACTUAL FEMINIST

    Is the campus free speech crisis a myth? Some say yes. They tell us not to be distracted by media stories of campus radicals shouting down speakers. “Look at the big picture,” they say. “Free speech is doing just fine.” Are they right? That is coming up next on the Factual Feminist. I was recently invited to Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon, to give a lecture making a case for more openness on women’s issues, such as the gender wage gap, or the patriarchal rape culture. These need to be questioned and debated, not accepted as gospel. Women—everyone—are best served by truth—not slogans, much less myths. But…

    Was Obama Right About Gun Control?

    On the 5th January 2016, President Obama unveiled new gun control laws, to protect American citizens. The President announced his executive orders to forcibly implement new gun control measures, bypassing Congess’ opposition to these changes. Obama wants to control the sale of firearms at gun shows and flea markets, so that all sellers must be registered and licensed, and put in place mandatory background checks on buyers. In an emotional plea, Obama recalled the events of the Sandy Hook Massacre, street violence in Chicago and other recent killings, to stop the loss of innocent lives. But millions of right-wing supporters claim that Obama’s decision is an infringement of the second…

    The Opioid Epidemic is a Lie – Medical Freedom

    I am sitting in a stick Hut in the park. Today, I’d like to talk with you a bit about medical freedom. I do a radio show called medical freedom and I’m asked sometimes, well, what is medical freedom? And it’s really a right that we don’t have, but we should. One of our founding fathers, signer of the Declaration of Independence, was Dr. Benjamin Rush, and he urged for a provision to be made for medical freedom just as there was being made a provision for religious freedom. He wasn’t heeded and today we live in a world of: forced vaccination, pain patients being stripped of their pain medicine,…

    The incredible history of the 2nd Amendment and America’s gun violence problem | Jill Lepore

    One of the more interesting theories about the nature of gun violence in the United States and the quite high homicide rate in the United States, both of which distinguish the United States from other similar nations, has to do with at what moment in time the United States became independent and why the Second Amendment ends up in the Bill of Rights, which is written by Madison. In the theory it is that most states, that is nation states, pursued a historical course that led to the state having a monopoly on violence before the state became fully democratized, that is to say the government essentially seizes the weapons…
