How UC–Santa Barbara Can Turn Grief Into Action: Divest From Gun Manufacturers

"if UCSB students, alumni, faculty and staff want to channel their feelings into constructive action, here’s a suggestion: ask the University of California Regents if its $88 billion endowment is contributing to gun violence by being invested in gun companies that fund the National Rifle Association (NRA) and obstruct common-sense gun policies.

Socialism Sucks!

Socialism, or collectivism, is a consequence of a more fundamental philosophical mistake. This mistake is the opinion that you do not have a moral right to your own life, that you owe part of your life to others. This idea is called altruism, which is mistakenly thought to be a moral position. Well, the principle of altruism, if you wish to actually think about it, is one of self-sacrifice, that it is moral to sacrifice your life to others. This should be clearly distinguished from benevolence,… Continue

Becoming Free

Blame it on my parents. They always told me to "think for myself". I doubt they ever considered what would happen if I really did that.



Now, I suspect what they meant was, "Think what we tell you but do it in your own words." Too late. When I was 13, I began to question everything and soon the total absurdity of religion became apparent.

Atheism Means Moral Freedom

Atheism asserts the independence of the individual. It denies the existence of a power, natural or supernatural, which determines human life.

Yet people have believed in the existence of a god etc., on account of their slave-mindedness. Slave-mind seeks a prop, and an early prop it took to… Continue

Freedom and it's limits...

...do freedom exist?



It is possible that something such as "freedom", that is, the state in which a person can do anything she/he wants whenever she/he wants to do it without having to make any excuse, nor feel guilty about it nor regret.
