The Delinquencies of Juvenile Law: A Natural Law Analysis

Abstract: This article is a substantive analysis tracing the legal, philosophical, social, historical, jurisprudence and political backgrounds of juvenile law, which is an outgrowth of the so-called Progressive movement – a popular social and political movement of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. I also trace how this socio-political cause célèbre became a fixture […]

End the Fed - bring back gold

End the Fed – bring back gold

Paraphrasing one of my many perceptive readers who also favors a gold standard: Since governments produce nothing of any real value, in order for government to grow, it must extort and exploit the money supply. By artificially inflating the money supply, it can fund its own leviathan growth by the promiscuous printing of valueless paper, […]

America and the gold standard

America and the gold standard

The gold standard is when the value of a country’s money is tied to the amount of gold the country possesses. The economic advantage of a gold standard is that artificial currency (e.g., paper money) is backed by a fixed asset of real value. It presents a self-governing and stabilizing effect on the economy. One […]

Liberalism = Ponzi schemes

For a Ponzi scheme to be successful in politics and economics it must exploit three tendencies of human nature: 1) envy (I desire what you have); 2) greed (I will do whatever it takes to get what you have); and 3) willful ignorance (I didn’t know that minus defense [20 percent], 61 percent of America’s […]

EXCLUDING THE EXCLUSIONARY RULE: NATURAL LAW VS. JUDICIAL PERSONAL POLICY PREFERENCES

[U.S. Supreme Court Justice Benjamin Cardozo, commenting on the perversity of the exclusionary rule, contemptuously remarked—“The criminal is to go free because the constable has blundered.” Cardozo understood that “fidelity to law” meant having law practically apply to real life situations. In this article the author argues that in a post-9/11 world one can no […]

Liberal fascism through the ages

Liberal fascism through the ages

No matter how mad the plan is – Fraternité, the “New Soviet Man,” the Master Race, the Great Leap Forward, the Cultural Revolution, Building a New Society, ObamaCare – a [liberal] mob will believe it. In the world of the liberal, as in the world of Robespierre, there are no crimes, only criminals. – Ann […]

Can Africa be saved?

Can Africa be saved?

Like all nations going back to antiquity, if Africa makes the right choices, yes – but if Africa continues to make the wrong choices in its leadership, religious, economic and political philosophy, it is doomed to have the vast majority of its people essentially eking out a living in Stone Age conditions ruled over by […]

Letter to Generation Y

Professor Leonard McCoy is a faculty member at Savannah State University, a historical black college/university (HBCU) in Georgia.

Peter Paul v. The Clintons: FEC Complicity and a Plea for Real and Present Campaign Finance Disclosure Laws

This rational view of election law under a constitutional paradigm is not a new concern for those who advocate real and tougher campaign finance disclosure laws. The battle has been ongoing for almost a century now.5 Take the case, Citizens Against Rent Control v. City of Berkeley, the Court held: “The integrity of the political system will be adequately protected if contributors are identified in a public filing revealing the amounts contributed; if it is thought wise, legislation can outlaw anonymous contributions.” 6 This is a clear, unmistakable utterance of ‘black letter law’ from the Supreme Court. Yet, in the area of campaign finance disclosure laws, its pronouncements are largely ignored, unenforced and with any authority and influence.

An American Weimar Republic

What are the logical comparisons and consequences we can understand between the economic, moral and intellectual devolution of Germany under the Weimar Republic that ushered in the National Socialism of Adolf Hitler and a post-Ronald Reagan America (since 1990), that continued the Democratic socialism of Wilson, FDR and LBJ, which eventually ushered in the Age […]

The world is a dangerous place to live not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it. ~ Albert Einstein Einstein’s aphorism above in an utterly singular manner extrapolates why professor Allan Bloom had to write his magnum opus, “The Closing of the American Mind,” […]

I remember Allan Bloom

I remember Allan Bloom

For Bloom, the moral vacuum created by liberalism inside the souls of Americans was filled by demagogic radicals in the ’60s similar to the Nazi Brownshirts who in the ’20s and ’30s filled the breach created in German society by the Weimar Republic. Bloom further argued that liberal values of philosophy and reason understood as […]
