Column by Will Groves. Exclusive to STR Those engaged in science know that the search for better answers continues for as long as inconsistencies appear between a theory and experiment. When the mind that has genuinely opened asks questions, it cannot hide from the answers simply because they go against convention. The metaphorical essence of this appears as an unwillingness to apply ever greater...

Exclusive to STR I think beauty matters. Happiness derives from aesthetic pleasures none of us can fully explain, yet which we experience with certainty. The art I enjoy you might consider rubbish, but who could objectively criticize either of us? Aesthetics seems like a personal matter, in other words. As liberty-seekers, when we see the state, ugliness stares us back. The airtight logic of...

Exclusive to STR November 6, 2008 The colossal stupidity of the American people is on grand display today. Some people are bubbling over with elation while others have been trampled by a mighty political hangover, neither group seeing that they were in fact making a non-choice and lending their support to a quantifiably meaningless charade that enhances the power of the state at their own...

Exclusive to STR November 3, 2008 One of the strange things about our world is that people who take positions that are inconsistent and arbitrary are considered normal while people who act according to logical principles are considered extremists. Were it the other way around, there'd be no reason for surprise, no tension. Some people always do and believe weird things. Strangeness in...
