Original article "Critical Race hustlers are culture warriors obsessed with destroying anything and everything beautiful.  They are Leninists never content with what they’ve achieved and will not stop until they have poisoned everything we’ve ever held dear."

Original article "We’re on the brink of a slow-motion apocalypse.  A generation or two from now, humans may live in a world where they still have access to amazing old machines left over from a smarter civilization, but lack the brains to make new ones or even service the old ones. A generation or two later, after all the old miracle machines have worn out, feral humans may wander the burnt-out ruins of the civilization we left them, like barbarians gawking at the wonders of Rome."
Original article "If they pelt enough police with ice chunks, smash out enough urgent care clinic windows, and spray paint enough buildings, then capitalism will be abolished and they’ll be able to usher in their communist utopia!"
Original article "The woke police...are looking for any opportunity to impose their will and punish those who deviate from the path they have prescribed for our lives. That explains the seemingly weird fact that often those who defend the canceled person will get canceled even harder than the original victim. In the eyes of the leftist mob, the defender is making a more direct and explicit attack on their authority, and thus is an even greater threat."
Original article "But the deeper source of this movement is that Progressive activists throughout Western schools now are hell-bent on dumbing us down, disconnecting us from our history and from the extraordinary intellectual and artistic legacy of our civilization, and molding younger generations into social justice activists instead of educated patriots. Erasing our historical consciousness and cultural roots, as well as our ability to think critically and to reject a mob mentality, is a prerequisite for...
Column by Douglas Young. Exclusive to STR There are many culprits for why so many Americans of different political persuasions today have trouble maintaining or even starting a rational dialogue on controversial topics without angry emotion and name-calling soon taking over.     Before TV, we were a far more literate society where folks read much more and thought in a more rational, linear manner. But TV is arguably a much...
Column by Douglas Young. Exclusive to STR "Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right . . . . Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past....

Column by Dr. Douglas Young. Exclusive to STR In 2020 COVID fears enabled American elites to grab a record amount of power -- and they love it and don't want to give it up. But if the American people don't take back our constitutional rights in 2021, it could be much more difficult to ever get them back.   There are many rational reasons why so many Americans oppose the severe lockdowns imposed in so...

Original article "The point instead was to destroy and deface most all images of America, from Frederick Douglass and Ulysses S. Grant to Lincoln and World War II heroes such as Churchill. The strategy of the Left was that if they could easily wage war on the bronze and stone of the past without repercussions, then as fear and terror mounted, they could turn to the flesh-and-blood enemies of the people in the present. Anyone who with impunity burns books — including the Bible — vandalizes...
The Real Reasons Why the Left Are So Hysterical Over Guns

Alex R. Knight III 2019-08-17 15:02
Column by Alex R. Knight III. Exclusive to STR Ever since the February, 2018 shootings at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the political Left in America – and elsewhere – have ratcheted up their traditional disdain for privately-owned firearms to an over-the-top, frantic pitch. The Democratic Party has made gun control its #1 platform priority for the foreseeable...

Column by Paul Hein. Exclusive to STR From time to time you may encounter the suggestion: describe (blank) in a single word. If “blank” is “Christianity,” a suitable answer might be “repentance” or “salvation.” If “blank” is “science,” it might be “hypothesis” or “experimentation.” What if “blank...

Column by Paul Hein. Exclusive to STR There’s nothing new about the idea of socialism. In the first 20 years of the 20thCentury, socialist Eugene Debs ran five times for president on the Socialist ticket. He didn’t make it. Well, never mind. The old socialist slogans have been reworked, encompassing the trendy new “green” concept. Maybe that’s all that’s...

Column by Alex R. Knight III Exclusive to STR A somewhat obscure documentary that first debuted in selected screenings and film festivals in 2016, was just earlier this year released on DVD, and I became intrigued enough to buy a copy. Do Not Resisttakes a look at policing in modern America. And what emerges is hideous. I will start by saying that, cinematographically speaking, Do Not...

Column by new Root Striker Sam Bocetta. Exclusive to STR Now that the 2018 midterm elections are over and almost all of the results are in, a major question that people on both sides of the aisle are sure to have is this: What can we expect to happen in regards to gun control once the new Congress is sworn in in January? Since the Democrats will control the House and the Republicans the Senate,...

Column by Alex R. Knight III Exclusive to STR Among the numerous other rifts which have divided libertarians over time, none of them in recent memory seem to have created as much consternation as have the intertwined issues of both immigration, and state (national) borders. Now it should seem at first glance that this dual issue, as it were, is an easily resolvable one from any even basic grasp...

Column by Paul Hein. Exclusive to STR In November we will have an election which the pundits assure us will be a monumental one. It will determine the future of America: the land of the free and the home of the brave, or the brave New World Order of free everything for everybody. The stakes, we are warned, are very high. The candidates have been assailing us with their ads since August, if not...

Column by Paul Hein. Exclusive to STR A few decades ago it occurred to me that historians might refer to those times as The War On the Middle Class. I think that designation might well apply today as well, although the war is, for all practical purposes, over (we lost). Today I think a new term may be used, namely The Age of Victimization. In my youth, before the pencil had been invented, and...

Column by Alex R. Knight III. Exclusive to STR The other night, after a long day of doing far more productive things, I broke one of my own usual patterns and watched some congressional hearing videos online. These mostly consisted of people like Trey Gowdy and Jason Chaffetz grilling various titular heads – and sometimes their subordinates – from any number of alphabet-soup...

Exclusive to STR December 18, 2006 Imagine two groups struggling to win (or, in one case, to retain) public support for their respective, opposing causes. The dominant group has managed to define the other's name to mean 'violent, uncivilized destroyers of property and enemies of functioning society' in the public mind, despite that definition being the polar opposite of the truth. Still, the...

Exclusive to STRA August 24, 2006 Yes, I should have done this a long time ago. And when the editor encouraged everybody to write about Strike The Root for its fifth anniversary, I thought this is the time. There is so much I want to say, but I just seem to never get around to saying it. So I missed the chance again. But better late than never, I guess. Here it goes. I've been a market anarchist...

Exclusive to STR September 27, 2006 One of the truly 'hot button' libertarian issues is immigration. While most libertarians would reject the argument 'we must have taxation to pay for the welfare state,' many do support the position that 'we must control immigration because of the welfare state.'

Exclusive to STR June 15, 2007 It's just a year since I wrote to suggest how we can get there from here, so I thought you'd like to know that the project is proceeding nicely. In response to that announcement, about as many as I had hoped joined the Academy it introduced, and that one-time boost will bring forward by several years the day that government evaporates; it's still too early to...

Stefan Molyneux 2007-05-29 16:00
Exclusive to STR May 30, 2007 Ah, my son, my son . . . . He's 40 years old, and really needs to change careers. When he was 20, he joined the Ku Klux Klan, because he was concerned that the Klan was getting too big, too aggressive. In those days, they were lynching some poor man every week, which he felt was wrong. He felt that the Klan should limit itself to a lynching every month, and that...

Jim Davies 2007-12-04 17:00
Exclusive to STR November 26, 2007 Imagine the Feds were to obey and be limited by the US Constitution. Would that produce a free society? As a stick with which to defend oneself against government people, the Constitution is a lot better than nothing. They invade your privacy without "probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and...

Jim Davies 2008-05-26 16:00
Exclusive to STR I'll not tell you the date, but based upon a very few simple and well-grounded assumptions, it will fall in the year 2027. "E-Day" is the day that all government in America will evaporate because, having gained a proper understanding of its nature, nobody will be willing any longer to work for it on any terms; tens of millions will have done what a certain DMV...

Jim Davies 2008-01-23 17:00
Exclusive to STR For the first time ever in recorded human history, in 2027 a major society began righting wrongs and restoring damaged rights. True, I'm being a little unfair to the quite enlightened traditions in Somalia, to settlers of mediaeval Iceland, and to villagers throughout Europe in the same era--who resolved social outrages like theft, homicide and assault by arraigning the perp...

Column by tzo. Exclusive to STR   Stanley Milgram was an American social psychologist best known for his Milgram Experiment, a study conducted in the 1960s.   Dr. Milgram wanted to research the relationship between obedience and authority, and he was at least partly motivated to do so by the events of the Nazi Holocaust. It greatly troubled him that so many supposedly good people could...

Column by tzo.   Exclusive to STR   Some 2,400 years ago, the Greek playwright Aristophanes put forth an idea in one of his plays that I would like to codify into a law of human behavior. Here are the pertinent lines from his play "The Frogs":   The course our city runs is the same towards men and money. She has true and worthy sons. She has fine new gold and ancient...

By Glen Allport. Exclusive to STR    - 1 - The Blessings of True Regulation in a Civil Society   Many things should be regulated – for health and safety, for protection against fraud, and for other reasons.   Regulation is a normal function of civil society. We don't want to get electrocuted when we touch a toaster or vacuum cleaner, for example, and the makers of...

While watching the film again I was struck anew with its abolitionist message – a message...

Roger Young 2010-04-14 03:00
Exclusive to STR Having no television reception, I had never honestly seen and heard Sarah Palin speak. I’ve only read quotes and some text of her speeches. Seeing her words on paper (or rather a web page) is disturbing enough. I’ve only leered at photos showing her dynamite legs--a pleasant contrast to the jagged sequoias Queen Hillary waddles around on. But...
