James Stockdale, then a Commander with the US Navy, was captured by communist forces after ejecting from his disabled jet over North Vietnam. To prevent his captors from using him as propaganda he cut his scalp with razors and beat his face with a stool until he was unrecognizable. During his entire 7 1/2 year captivity he never lost faith, he continued to be a leader and primary organizer of resistance among his fellow POWs. When he was captured with information that could implicate his fellow American POWs, he slit he own wrists so he couldn’t be tortured into revealing his brothers. Read more…

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality
As a libertarian you may be uneasy with the concept of net neutrality. Like me, you feel inexplicably drawn to this neutrality but feel guilty for it. You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world. We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.
