The War On Terror Is a Joke…

It is something we all know, but it is worth repeating. Saudia Arabia’s position as the main funder of Islamic radicalism worldwide makes the US wars against that radicalism a sad sad joke. It seems like the folks in Washington, DC are the only people who don’t know this. This video outlines one of the central realities of the world we live in.

Stop Paying Attention to Iraq and Ukraine!

You can’t open your laptop nowadays without hearing about Iraq or Ukraine. These countries are having a terrible time. There isn’t really much we can do about them though. We should be more focused on problems that Washington, DC hasn’t quite managed to turn into a photogenic disaster yet…

How Federalism Saved Us From Wall Street

Wall Street’s dominance of our economy is frightening. Too big to fail banks are tremendously powerful, but it could be worse. In the UK, the banks are the only industry they have left. What saved us from that result? A lot of the economics and the players are very similar. The answer is our federal system that divides powers between the state governments and Washington, DC…

Who is the Worst President Ever?

People like to argue over who the worst president ever was. Some say Bush, Some say Obama. This neglects some basic facts about where we are today, and how we got here. To find the roots you have to go 100 years back… to Woodrow Wilson…

Jesus, Rome and the Founding Fathers

Some people spend a lot of time arguing for the “Christian” nature of our nation’s founding. They are missing the point. The Founders may have been “Christian” but their outlook was very, very Pagan…

Why Humanitarian Intervention is Dumb…

“Spreading Freedom” and pre-emptive war have fallen out of fashion. That doesn’t mean that the Pentagon has run out of excuses to bomb people though. Under the guise of the “Responsibility to Protect” the Obama administration has toppled one government, and carried out military operations across Africa. Obama’s friendlier sounding interventions are just as dumb as Bush’s. Here’s why…

Ask a Libertarian Part 1: Intro and Ayn Rand…

Whenever I describe my politics as Libertarian, I get a lot of ugly looks. People instantly make a lot of assumptions about what I believe, and then proceed to ask a lot of dumb questions. The attached video is the attempt of two Istanbul Libertarians to put some of those dumb questions to rest permanently. We believe that the Libertarian perspective is the only sane one to adopt on 21st century America, and we hope to make the case with this series of videos…

You can find a lot more videos from this perspective here

How we are selling out the WTO

The US and the EU are currently working on the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. There is a lot to question about this trade deal and the negotiation process. What nobody is focusing on, however, is the message that this sends to the rest of the world, much of which has spent decades jumping through hoops to be part of the World Trade Organization. This video attempts to put the focus there…

Washington, DC: Our Imperial Capital

Lately we’ve heard a lot about the DC Renaissance. After decades of decline it is now becoming a playground for the rich and over-educated. In the midst of the celebration, it is worth remembering that all of this wealth is built on exploitation and war. This video is our attempt to make this clear…

European Expansion is a Good Thing

Over the past half decade or so the United States has invested 2 trillion dollars in state-building efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan without much in the way of success. The Europe has managed to do a much better job, and without making many defense contactors rich. Here’s How…

TRANSCRIPT:

Hey all, let’s talk a bit about Democracy in Europe. Almost Every term you use when you talk about politics can get you in to trouble…

A half cheer for the European Union!

The European Union is of course a ridiculous, socialist, nanny state contraption. The thing is, Europeans love that sort of thing. It has also done us quite a favor. It’s been almost 70 years since Americans have had to die on European soil in large numbers. The latest in our series of videos on good news tries to tell this rarely told story…

TRANSCRIPT:

Ah, Europe. It has added so much to world culture. Germanic Music, British Humor, the French work ethic. There is one export however that has made more of an impression than any other. And that’s violence. Europeans have killed people for land, they’ve killed people for Religion, they’ve even done it for ideas. see more…
