The Three Laws of Robotics should be: no assault, no theft, no fraud -- and Trump of all candidates seems to have some idea of why we ought to start worrying about worse robotic scenarios, I write in today’s column.

In today’s column, I write that the GOP may be better off long-term losing with Carson or a Latino than winning via Trump.

I think Diddy’s negative view of democracy may be more realistic than Mitt Romney’s, as I explain in today’s column.

For all the jokes we make about lawyers, they’re a rational, rules-respecting bunch and tend, like the president of Cornell, to see the dangers of P.C. sentiment run amok, I write.

I wonder on SpliceToday whether the future will even care about which form of terrible big government you’ve allied yourself to or whether it’ll just seem like hairsplitting (and actual Jewish Nazis are mentioned, in contrast to the metaphors thrown around about Israel).

McDonald’s is beset by bogus health claims and bad economic reasoning, so in today’s column, I’m vowing to eat there weekly to show my gratitude.

Equality is not the essential thing, I write on SpliceToday, and if it were, we’d have to condemn a culture, if one exists, capable of re-engineering its solar system while we had little more grandiose than the collapsing Roman Empire.

I think the big winners on debate day were Joe Biden, who wasn’t in the debate, and Donald Trump, who tweeted an awesome dubstep-infused video earlier in the day, to which I link in today’s column.

In today’s column, writing as a fan, I contrast Laurie Anderson’s new installation art about Gitmo with her more troubling comments years ago about East Berlin.

Anarchists ought to spend more time resisting government power grabs such as eminent domain use and less time whining about capitalism, I write.

Even a moderate libertarian like philosophy professor John Tomasi has to jump through diplomatic hoops sometimes at a politicized place like Brown University, but I’m glad he does, I write in today’s column.

Richard Epstein debated Michael Huemer, and if an esteemed libertarian law professor debating an anarcho-capitalist philosophy professor brings us a step closer to talking openly about the complete abolition of government, I say in today’s column it’s a sign libertarianism is finally maturing.
