My reflections on a strange and momentous week for superhero-related news, one that leaves the Crime Syndicate and Alex Luthor Jr., Anti-Monitor and Pandora and Myrina, Darkseid and Metron all in the dust and hurtles onward to new/old realms.

The Libertarian Party nominating convention starts today in Tampa, and with three political parties in serious flux right now, this convention matters more than you think, I write in today’s column.

If Gore Vidal could warn whites in the U.S. and Russia to unite against the yellow peril, I shouldn’t be surprised there’s now a racist “alt-left” akin to the racists and anti-Semites over in the “alt-right,” as I note in today’s column.

Perhaps the Libertarian Party has already become the favorite of the former Republican establishment, and we’ll soon see the likes of William Kristol saying a vote for Gary Johnson and William Weld in November is the best bet to stymie Trump, I write.

Francis Bacon kicked off the era of the scientific method nearly 400 years ago, and I love it -- but maybe it will kill us all, I write.

A libertarian comedian, Doug Stanhope, loses his mother and writes a book about it, as I recount in today’s column.

The rise of reactionary quasi-fascists on the right is troubling, but it’s worth noting all the things they’re reacting against, I say in today’s column.

A great anti-Trump rant by Alex Jones’ colleague Paul Joseph Watson from nine months ago is as true now -- when Jones’ site ardently supports Trump -- as it was nine months ago, I write.

Jonathan Haidt has admirably traced psychological proclivities behind different political leanings, but maybe it’s time he dared draw the conclusion some people actually are jerks, I write.

Words like “troll” and “anarcho-capitalist” can get bent by enemies of freedom but come back to haunt them in the end, I write.

There is anti-globalization sentiment on both left and right, and it’s really anti-capitalist sentiment, which will make us all poor no matter what Sanders or Trump tell you, I say in today’s column.
Thursday, May 12, 2016
Despite this whole “democracy” thing, it’s unnatural -- and increasingly unpopular -- to be part of a “majority” anyway, I write in today’s column.

To this list of ten bad arguments against voting Libertarian, I should have added “Only the winner matters in our system.” Not true: the other parties do notice where they’re losing votes and make attempts to adjust in that direction when they plausibly can.

In Trump, the media rebels who should have been libertarian but turned out populist have their authoritarian leader, I write in today’s column.

With so many stupid things over which people split into political factions, it’s nice to see the Avengers still fighting over government regulation in Captain America: Civil War, I write.

Kids may sometimes be bothered by violent movie imagery, but they don’t freak out nearly as much as adults do over politics, I observe in today’s column.
Wednesday, May 4, 2016
I may not be the only comics fan who realized with some embarrassment that the genre we love has gotten so dark Batman may be fun for us oldsters and no fun for kids, and I write of that today.
Tuesday, May 3, 2016
Compare a few hypersensitive nitwits from the twenty-first-century left to the real threats faced by kids like those shot by the government forty-six years ago tomorrow at Kent State, I suggest in today’s column.
Monday, May 2, 2016
I begin a week of columns dedicated to kids by noting that, contrary to what some claim, you really shouldn’t trust non-libertarians to look out for the welfare of the young.
