Well, the two freedoms that concern me most are economic and religious freedom. I don't think that education should be nationalized in the interest of preserving economic freedom. However, I certainly do think that public schools should be high quality and well-funded. Public schools should also al...

Vegetarianism - no problem, it is a natural and historically attested diet that avoids many of the consequences of a meat-heavy diet that supplements with efficient products of agriculture like milk and eggs. Veganism, though I have a problem with - if your diet requires you to take man-made vitami...

How exactly does being vegan help the environment? For starters, the carbon emissions associated with meat and dairy are way higher than those associated with other protein sources . That's not even factoring in land and water usage ( including the land and water used to grow crops such as soy whic...

Technically, learning about the tax code is objectively more valuable than the humanities. Learning how to minimize your own tax burden will probably earn you more than you'll get at Starbucks, which is pretty much all that a degree in the humanities will get you. And if you really care to study th...

I'd just buy the emergeny passport at the airport for 50 euro and make fun of her for the rest of the vacation.

What country only charges 50 euros for an emergency passport? What country issues emergency passports at airports?

I'm a lacto-ovo vegetarian, though I'm pretty vegan-ish (e.g. I've cut down a lot on dairy and eggs). I've been vegetarian for nearly 20 years.

I'm mostly vegetarian for environmental reasons and I've mostly been reducing my dairy intake lately for the same reason.

Hell, have you somehow managed to avoid applying for jobs that require cover letters or a CV? How do you plan on clearly articulating why you are the best person for the job if you can't write well?

There's often a lot of talk about how to improve the education system in the US. Personally, there's one simple idea we can start with. Stop forcing classes on students that have nothing to do with their chosen field of study, or have little real world application like art or humanities. Not only w...

I think its probably going to end up like the opioid epidemic. Except that it's impossible to overdose on THC the way everyone actually consumes it. You'd have to extract pure THC and inject it before you'd stand a chance of overdosing. Cannabis isn't physically addictive, but it can be psychologic...
