Why Don't You Just Move To Somalia (13-01-2017)

3/6/2018
More
Rob addresses the argument that Libertarians often hear... 'If you don't like the government, then why don't you move to Somalia?' Sorry for the terrible video quality, I shot the video and then on seeing it back realised that the camera was out of focus the whole time. But I hope what i'm saying is more important than how it looks regardless.

The Islam Paradox REBUTTED! A Response To The Amazing Atheist (08-01-207)

3/6/2018
More
The Amazing Atheist, on one hand, knows that valuing freedom of religion is a core value that makes western countries great. On the other hand, he also acknowledges that we have ample evidence that Islam is an ideology that generally doesn't share that value of tolerance, and he doesn't know how to reconcile these two positions. This is what he calls 'The Islam Paradox'. Rob from The Rational Right provides an ethical resolution to this situation, which actually isn't a paradox at all.

"Arrival" stars Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker and centres around a linguistics professor trying to communicate with the aliens that arrive on Earth in 12 sideways saucers. The results are predictable, implausible, laughable, and angering. WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS SPOILERS REFERENCE: Our presentation on the nature of Globalism....
