In this video, I give some information about the USS Edson (with pictures!), and I talk about some of the implications for the pursuit of a more libertarian society.

We often hear claims such as "men and women are equal" and "all races are equal." However, a brief look at the grammar of the word "equal" reveals that these sentences are conceptually incomplete (i.e. nonsense) statements. Also, I forgot to say this at the end of the video: Thanks for Watching!

The physical traits of the five main male heroes reveal the philosophical conflicts underpinning the story of Watchmen. Also, two of these characters have similar journeys, which are shaped by how they stand in regard to those philosophical tensions. Also, I give a brief channel update and an announcement about my upcoming book.

UPDATE: My book is finished!

What do "right" and "wrong" mean when we make moral sentences? I explain the problems with the most common explanations, which stem from the use of "right" and "wrong" as simple adjectives. I make the case that they are actually comparative adjectives. This explains the disagreement and miscommunication that so often occurs when debating moral issues, and it provides a way to clarify moral sentences about right and wrong.

For more on issues of morality and language, check out my previous videos:

What does "murder is wrong" really mean? Philosophers have offered three general theories, but those philosophers are all wrong. In my first video, I give an overview of those three theories, and I point out the problems with them. In this video, I explain my alternative approach to moral semantics, which solves these problems and provides a clearer understanding of what moral sentences mean.

In this video, I try to dispel the common misunderstanding of what Objectivist ethics really means. I include an overview of what Objectivist ethics is, its greatest shortcoming, and its greatest strength.

For a really in-depth look at Objectivism, watch Stefan Molyneux's video series "The Truth About Ayn Rand." These videos are great for anyone who is new to Objectivism and is looking for a thorough overview. They are also great for people who are familiar with Objectivist ideas but would like to know more details about Ayn Rand's life (and the experiences that shaped her philosophy), as well as about Objectivism's philosophical antecedents and its criticisms.

In this video, I draw upon my first-hand experience when shopping in England. I use this to illustrate how the different ways of paying for grocery bags will change people’s behavior. This reveals a huge problem, perhaps even a fatal flaw, in socialist systems.

An introduction to thinking of things in terms of systems. I explain the three aspects of a system, give some examples from chemistry, and briefly talk about how the same ideas apply to politics.
