John Stossel – Media Matters

Reading is the best way to learn because a truthful piece of literature never goes out of style.

Politics.

News.

Libertarianism and Capitalism.

John Stossel – Did They Really Say That?

I’m going to write a piece called “Why I Don’t Watch the News” some day: here’s a small sample of how that might go (I hope it is as elaborate as “I Really Don’t CARE If Other People Don’t Like My Work” (see the link for that in the post below)).

I have discovered the philosophical root of television “news”.

Excerpts from “Breaking News: story 2 of the Apocalyptic series”.

 

John Stossel – RetroReport, The End Of The Story

I’m SO happy about this ❤

There is something deeply, deeply flawed with this media culture in which we live in.

This is also part of the reason why I think we shouldn’t be so terrified of words, like “nigger” or “faggot.” Hyper-reactivity is a HUGE problem.

Evan Sayet – Understanding How Modern Liberals Think

I don’t agree with his conservatism and what he says about art, homosexuality, etc., but I agree with what he says about liberalism.

The part about conservatism is morality I think is wrong. I think when I was a kid, movies did influence my perspective of the world, but a couple of things: if he’s advocating limiting these with government, then forget about it. But if he allows these institutions to operate and merely says that they are corrupting our youth, I may disagree with that a little bit but he still has the legal right to say so.

The indiscriminateness is the best part.

Practicality > morals and good intentions.

That’s my mantra 🙂 Lol

The part about not trusting the weather three days from now but supporting the presmise global warming destroying the world is a great point.

Thomas Sowell – The Vision of the Anointed

Oh my God.

Pay attention to the end where he talks about his student asking him what a particular passage meant.
