The Obsession With Work

Andrew Yang is the last minority standing in the DNC field. His success is a mix of his reddit appeal, his genuine charm and UBI. The UBI idea is one to watch as this will gain traction with each election cycle. It is a cope for our economic issues not a solution to root problems….

After California Repeals Prop 13

State governments are facing funding issues. Not all states as George Mason’s analysis points out but the ones that pop up on the national news as dysfunctional (illinois) but even the fantastic, cool coastal states like Massachusetts, New Jersey and California. Many of these states already burden their citizens with a variety of taxes to…

American Domestic Politics Built Our Competitors

President Trump has not been the flamethrower to the establishment that some hoped for but this is an issue of expectations. Remember when you thought Jeff Sessions was a competent good guy?

The Globalist Case for Universal Basic Income

YangGang’s all the rage right now. Numerous expose pieces from the trashstream media are highlighting YangGangs existence and membership.
