I am fascinated by court cases and evidence and investigation. TV shows like Blue Bloods, Law and Order, and Matlock have always been very appealing to me. Perhaps because I have a strong sense of seeing fair justice served, or maybe because I am simply in awe of how attorneys can draw out the truth (or, in some cases, manipulate […]

Boundary Stone–A Natural Law Approach to Economics

Most of my adult life has been spent learning Government and Economics, subjects that should have been learned in high school but weren’t.
