You Will Get Nothing for Christmas and Be Happy


The Biden Administration really seems to be taking the War on Christmas as a policy imperative. First, Dr. Fauci told us not to get excited about gathering with the family over the holidays because we probably won’t be allowed to. Now, word from the administration is don’t count on being able to buy or exchange a lot of Christmas gifts either. “‘There will be things that people can’t get,'” a senior White House official told Reuters, when asked about holiday shopping.”

We know the globalist left has fully embraced the World Economic Forum of a future economy where “You Will Own Nothing and Be Happy.” (Despite denying it). And danged if the Government’s heavy-handed, unscientific Covid response hasn’t accelerated that goal.  The $3.5 Trillion economic sledgehammer that is the “Build Back Better” plan will ensure that we will have nothing left after taxes and higher energy costs to buy any stuff with anyway. 

Ayaan speaks with Dan Seligson about polygamy and the marriage market. They explore the question: does polygamy breed poverty or does poverty breed polygamy? Dan also explains where polygamy still exists, the chronic scarcity it creates, and the commodification of women.

Dan received his PhD in physics from Berkeley. From 1984 until 2001, he worked at Intel Corp. in Santa Clara and Jerusalem where he focused on manufacturing technology and machine learning. He has been an investor in, advisor to, and board member and founder of several genomics-related companies. He has been awarded 9 US patents.

Does Scarcity Yield Better Results?


While at a weekend church retreat, we discussed those amazingly beautiful letters to home written by soldiers of even the lowest rank on either side of the American Civil War. The question arose, does scarcity yield better results?

Did having only a few pages of paper and one pencil (and maybe even a pen!) make the soldier writing a letter home want to write a letter with punch and vigor that said everything he wanted it to say? In contrast, look at the language and diction of tweeting and texting, of emails and even full-on essays in blogs.
