The New York Times Is Truly Messed Up

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Friday, August 16, 2019

Although rightly rejected today, the Virginia-born Fitzhugh attained national prominence in the late antebellum period as one of the most widely read defenders of a slave-based economy. Charles Sumner called him a “leading writer among Slave-masters,” and his regular contributions to the pro-South magazine DeBow’s Review gained him a national readership in the 1850s.

A Tale Of Two Statues (The Struggle For Liberty In The Long Term)

quoting Thomas Sowellvia Ricochet
Thursday, August 15, 2019

Thomas Sowell has often stated that it would be nicer and easier if the left-wing/unconstrained vision of the world were true. Social welfare programs could make poor people not poor, peace would be easy to make through treaties and government wouldn’t be corrupt if only the right people ran it. Overall, I think that’s true. I’d like it if mankind were less corrupt and more competent, which is the basis of the unconstrained vision.

Thursday, August 15, 2019

The question, then, is whether policymakers can make sense of a concern that means different things to different people.

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

There is discrimination of all sorts, and that includes racial discrimination. Thus, it’s somewhat foolhardy to debate the existence of racial discrimination yesteryear or today.

California Bans Workplace, School Rules About Curly Hair

mentioning Victor Davis Hansonvia The Federalist
Wednesday, August 14, 2019

California recently passed the CROWN Act (Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair). Under CROWN, employers and public schools may not ban “natural” hairstyles historically associated with black culture, such as braids, locks, and twists. To justify the need for CROWN, the preamble claims American history is “riddled” with laws and societal norms that have denigrated blackness and associated racial traits such as “kinky and curly hair.”
