First, there's a book I'd love people to read more, Mark Steyn mentioned it in his book America Alone. It is by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, known primarily for his Sherlock Holmes books: The Tragedy of the Korosko. Doyle wrote many books, but this one in particular is the most important and timely of his works. I excerpted a pair of particularly significant passages, but the entire book is online if you want to read it. I recommend all of Doyle's work, especially The White Company.
I haven't done much with it lately, but my essay on the US Constitution is added to on occasion by looking at individual amendments. The first part is an overview of the history and structure of the constitution, as well as it's intent and philosophy. There also are several additional essays linked there in the first and second amendment. In my opinion no American kid should be able to graduate high school without demonstrating at least a basic understanding of the US Constitution. Then, perhaps, they might be able to vote and some eventually govern more wisely and capably than our present leaders.
I wrote The Unabomber Today in the middle of the week, and it probably should have been a weekend essay. It is an examination of the news media, the treatment of issues by the press, and how the Unabomber would be treated today. It's also my primary explanation of the Drum Principle which I refer to fairly often.
Slavery is one of those issues that people make a judgment about without even considering what it means or how it is used. It is presumed to be always wrong, always bad, always evil, and never to be considered - but is it? This seems controversial until you think about the topic a bit more completely; for instance, the US Constitution bans slavery... except for prisoners who have been convicted of crimes.
In an effort to combat postmodernist philosophy I wrote two essays, one on Truth and another on textual criticism. You probably aren't aware of it, but at least some of your worldview is very likely based on postmodern assumptions. What does that mean and why is it wrong? I tried to tackle that. Related to these is the essay on proof, where I try to explain why what people often demand as a level of proof is irrational and and impossible standard.
Give a few of these a look, I've written essays for more than a year, and some of them aren't bad. I just wish I'd gotten a better education and better grammar training so I could handle the language with more precision and delicacy.
