    Re: great inventors.
    Philo T. Farnsworth was the little known inventor of television.
    His is the inspiring story of a true genius, a true American individualist hero of a type which Ayn Rand could scarcely have invented. Yet he was real!
    When I was a child there was only one biography of him available. When I discovered it, it was a treasure to me. In recent years, countless new ones have appeared. If he is new to you, I envy that you can learn of him for the first time.

      Farnsworth deserved to enjoy the kind of success that Steve Jobs attained. However, he was cheated out of the fruits of his life’s work by the US patent system. This is the usual result of such social engineering. The examples can be multiplied indefinitely. Armstrong (the inventor of FM modulation) was driven to suicide when his inventions were stolen from him by the patent system. The inventor of intermitent windshield wipers was robbed of 30 years of his life by the patent system. Etc. If advocates of the patent system examined the actual consequences of it, they might be led to question their belief that it actually serves the rights of innovators or that any such statist violation of the free market could ever do so.

  3. I know you are interested in any “red flags” associated with Ted Cruz. Take a look at the opening sentence in an email I recieved from his office and see if you can spot the triple contradiction:

    “One question is on the mind of all Americans: can we trust the Obama administration to keep its promises, protect individuals’ rights, and uphold the law?” — Ted Cruz

    If Obama keeps his promises, our rights and the law will be violated. If Obama secures our rights, many laws will not be upheld and many of his promises will go unfulfilled (if not all). If he upholds the law then our rights will be violated and his promises will continue to be unfulfilled. I looked through the whole email to see if he address the triple contradiction; he doesn’t.

    (More detailed explaination of my understanding of the triple contradiction can be found here: http://lifeordeathpolitics.wordpress.com/2014/01/25/does-the-office-of-ted-cruz-think-were-all-idiots/)
