We talked with our friend Nolan Gray, a city planner, about how the COVID-19 pandemic led to many transformations in big cities, such as New York, San Francisco, and Chicago. Many people are moving away from big cities as they are not required to work there anymore. Big cities are facing enormous challenges today, due to the heavy regulations on how businesses can operate, as well as the financial burdens they inflict on residents.
Let us know in the comments below if you or any person you know moved away from a big city and how they feel about it.

War Sucks, What is it Good For? As the song goes, ‘absolutely nothing.’ Wars have historically failed to achieve the desired outcome of stabilization, all the while wasting taxpayers’ money, and causing sustained misery in the regions affected by conflict and resulting in tragically high levels of casualties, both military and civilian.
Conflict should be avoided as much as possible, with the only exception being as a last resort in defense of liberty. Learn Liberty believes that this can be achieved by promoting global interdependence through diplomacy, cooperation, and free trade. Alongside its obvious casualties, war invariably impedes trade, hinders economic development, and results in a loss of individual liberty.

One Resistance fighter says that the movement will win “not by fighting what we hate, but by saving what we love.” But what do they love?
Luck egalitarianism is, roughly, the view that inequalities in life prospects resulting from luck are unjust. If Amy has better job opportunities than Bob because she happened to have parents who could afford to send her to a fancy private school, that’s unfair.
