As America celebrates 245 years of independence this month, it’s important to reflect upon the ideas that inspired the freedoms that We the People celebrate today. Classical liberalism, inalienable rights, and the decentralization of power are among the guiding concepts that created a foundation for the nation’s legal and societal structures and still guide the country today. Classical Liberalism and Inalienable Rights The principle of classical liberalism, which inspired modern libertarianism, is attributed to John Locke, an English philosopher that the American revolutionary generation drew great inspiration from in the founding of the union. In one of Locke’s writings, “SecondContinue reading “Know Your Rights: Individual Liberties”
Many Millenials, and even an outspoken share of Generation Z, have adopted woke, far-left ideals. Not only do they want to rid America of free-market capitalism, but they also seek to eradicate the equality of opportunity and instead impose equity. Wokeness and Critical Theory are popular concepts among the progressive faction that have infected American culture and public institutions such as schools, churches, and the government. The Surge of Wokeness The term “woke” itself originated with the phrase “stay woke,” which signifies one’s awareness of social issues such as police brutality against minorities. It was popularized in 2014 following theContinue reading “Critical Woke Theory”
On Monday, April 26, 2021, the Supreme Court moved to hear a firearm-related case from New York. Judges will be deciding on the freedom of the state’s citizens to conceal carry outside of the home, which in turn could set a major precedent for gun owners throughout the country.

In conjunction, these rules leave the average citizen with virtually no way to obtain a firearm andContinue reading “Guns For All”
Last Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass a bill that would grant DC statehood. Following a 216-208 vote, the bill is set to be brought to the Senate’s chamber floor by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. While the bill’s likelihood of becoming law is not yet certain, it is one of the many happenings that exemplify the Democratic Party’s exploitation of their majority in Congress. Simultaneously, the Democrats are taking advantage of their power in the executive branch to make gains in the judiciary. Two weeks ago, Joe Biden started a commission that would study the impactContinue reading “Taking Power, Branch By Branch”
When it comes to the rising progressive culture in America, wokeness is an integral aspect of its values. For clarity, to be “woke” is to be “aware of and actively attentive to important facts and issues (especially issues of racial and social justice)” (Merriam-Webster). While there’s an importance to understanding the flaws in societal norms and the justice system, authoritarians have weaponized the ideology through cancel culture, critical theory, and rioting from radical groups such as Antifa and BLM. Amoral corporations and billionaires have also adopted the philosophy. Not only have they given in to the leftist mob’s rhetoric; theyContinue reading “Why the Wealthy Love Wokeism”
