We celebrate religious unity in a world divided. Sign in to see full entry.

Reflections on Freedom and What it Means

I live in the United States of America, a country which claims to be the torch-bearer for freedom. That said, I believe the notion of freedom is a concept worth dissecting. In this essay, I will discuss two different kinds of freedom. Since the U.S.A. has a predominantly capitalist economy... Sign in to see full entry.

The Challenge of Morality on the Internet

The Internet is a powerful tool. And like any tool, it can be used for both good and evil (And I use those terms in a quasi-objective sense—unlike many today, I do not believe morality is entirely subjective—such a position has far too many undesirable consequences). There are five moral challenges... Sign in to see full entry.

Sitting Out the Election

I’m an Independent who leans toward the right. Depending on the issue, I usually have very conservative views (One exception to this is gay marriage, which I don’t think is important enough of an issue to really waste too much time thinking about).

The State of the Union Address, Now and in the Future

Last night I watched President Bush give his seventh and final State of the Union Address. He touched on a number of crucial issues facing our country today, ranging from the War on Terror, to taxes, to Social Security, and more.

On the Flat Tax

For a long time (roughly twenty years now) I’ve been a supporter of the Flat Tax here in the United States. I’ve always been good at math and I’ve always been in a low income tax bracket, so I don’t dread tax time quite as much as other Americans might. And now, with all the computer programs...
