If someone is teaching racism--no matter their excuse--they do not mean well. They mean to set "black" against "white", and to destroy all progress toward equality.

Those who value human beings should never give a pass to those who only value certain "races" of human beings.

The only explanation I can think of for Louisiana HB 813 is pure murderous malice.

Attorney General's office brings out the old lie that there's a "hate speech" exception to the First Amendment.

Libertarians should be telling the pro-choice world that the doctrine of unlimited government power has led to the possible downfall of Roe v. Wade and that they need to adopt a strong pro-individual rights position. What I'm mostly seeing is "If you didn't support Freedom X, don't claim you support bodily autonomy." How does making people more consistent statists help?

About 15 years ago I reached the level of competence where Germans accepted my German and didn't switch to English. This year, for the first time, I had the sense they _assumed_ I could speak German and weren't merely tolerating my efforts.

No one talks about the two biggest designed-in security holes in email: (1) HTML mail.
(2) Hiding the sender's email address.
Patching a sieve is a pointless exercise.

Grammarly told me "individual identities" is redundant. It's right.

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
