TORONTO – The family of 85-year-old Frank Meyers has owned and farmed his land for 215 years, but he’s been threatened with losing it to the Canadian government for the last seven.

Jesus & Ayn Rand on Love and Altruism

Do any of you think Libertarians ought to distance themselves from Ayn Rand? My perception of Ayn Rand has deeply altered in recent days and I'm beginning to wonder why she's such a hero for so many in the Liberty movement. One doesn't need to be a statist to be altruistic and compassionate. But but why should this woman be venerated so much? Sure, she may have had some good ideas but why don't we criticize her selfishness and heartlessness more often? Perhaps this is why liberals aren't attracted to the movement.

via Alternet
Marijuana — it’s one of the primary reasons why California experienced a stunning 20 percent drop in juvenile arrests in just one year, between 2010 and 2011, according to provocative new research.

The San Francisco-based Center on Juvenile & Criminal Justice (CJCJ) recently released a policy briefing with an analysis of arrest data collected by the California Department of Justice’s Criminal Justice Statistics Center. The briefing, “California Youth Crime Plunges to All-Time Low,” identifies a new state marijuana decriminalization law that applies to juveniles, not just adults, as the driving force behind the plummeting arrest totals.

Are libertarians wolves in sheep’s clothing? Rebutting Ana Kasparian & The Young Turks

via The Libertarian Republic
My former debate opponent, Ana Kasparian called libertarians “wolves in sheep’s clothing” on her top rated web show “The Young Turks” this week. She was describing those who believe in social tolerance as well as free market economics as people who Republicans could sell to attract younger voters. Jacobin leftists made the same argument in a debate with me recently where they claimed that libertarians are “weaponized”, & “tools of the establishment.”
