    I am usually opposed to government spending

    that isn't necessary to protect its citizens' rights, but I think a reasonable case can be made for some social welfare provisions. While I can sympathize with the sentiment that social welfare should be voluntary, that is provided by private charities and mutual aid societies...

    Not Enough

    There arent enough people who care about social justice. Having seen some terrible inequalities, I feel like this is something most people should care about. Instead, nobody is paying attention, because people are busy being scared of someone hurting them or busy getting more...

    So Jihadi John is dead

    and gone. I feel he got away too lightly. He took pleasure in beheading journalists and care workers and posting the torture on social media. His death was swift and merciful. I wish he was in solitary confinement for the rest of his life.
