The Media Can't Stop Misleading on Guns :: 07/24/2020

With the possible exception of religion, there is no issue in American political life that is as poorly covered as guns.

The gun control group says it’s earmarked at least $5-million in the state of Florida, where the group will be promoting Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, and an initial $3.5-million investment in Texas targeting a half-dozen races for the U.S. House.

Gun control groups know that their best shot of electing anti-gun candidates this November is to scare the bejeebers out of American voters, particularly suburban women, where support for new gun laws is strongest. How do you do that at a time when more Americans than ever before are purchasing firearms for self-defense? Well, you have to scare them into believing that it’s a terrible thing that people are exercising their Second Amendment rights.

Three Reasons Representative Democracy Doesn't Work :: 07/20/2020

In representative democracies, voters ostensibly control the state through the politicians they vote for. However, most representative democracies fall far short of this goal. Three of the reasons for the trouble are the problems of scale, bundling, and omission. I will explore these three problems below and argue that privatization and decentralization can ameliorate them.
