Libertarianism Changes the Abortion Debate

Americans haven’t changed much in their approach to abortion over the past fifty years. Since Roe v Wade, conventional arguments on both sides have traversed various fields of philosophy. At the same time dancing around, but never addressing, the actual question; a question about the legal nature of human rights. Both sides attempt to answer the question of legality by confusing a legal theory of rights with ethical, ontological, and religious arguments in their favor.

“The Glorias” – Biopic about Gloria Steinem [Review]

I just finished watching The Glorias, a biopic about feminist Gloria Steinem. It was interesting and well-produced – I’m assuming it’s historically accurate, I don’t really know.

Response to Mark Jones on Authority and Submission

In his review of Rachel Green Miller’s book, Beyond Authority and Submission, Mark Jones offers a critical review suggesting that her motives are good but that she misses the mark. You can read my extended review of Miller’s book here. I don’t know anything about Jones, and the only things I’ve read from him are this review and the article cited by Miller in her book. I can appreciate that Jones at least attempted a genuine engagement with the content of
