# Conservative Polylogism

Economics: Lesson 160 Is free trade across a county border economically different from free trade across a national border? When it comes to town borders, county borders, and state borders, nobody cares about them and they are simply invisible lines. Conservatives defend free trade across these domestic borders with no tariffs or sales taxes because … Continue reading Conservative Polylogism

# A Gun is as Good or as Bad as the Man using it

Until this last week, westerns to me were just fun movies filled with drama, gun fighting, and simple sets and characters with not a lot of detail … Continue reading A Gun is as Good or as Bad as the Man using it

# Physics: Week 29

This week in the Ron Paul Curriculum physics course covered the basics and introduction to ac circuit analysis. Basics of AC current AC through a resistor: The current and voltage is always in phase and Ohms law applies.  The energy is transferred into heat and lost in the environment.  Inductor in series: By kerchiefs law, … Continue reading Physics: Week 29

# Tariffs & Taxes & Invisible Lines

Economics: Lesson 155 Do import quotas benefit most voters economically? People understand that when they purchase an imported good from across the sea and it is brought over their national border, that they will have to pay an import quota. They don't know why, but they pay it anyway and are told it is to … Continue reading Tariffs & Taxes & Invisible Lines

# Physics: Week 28

In week 28 of the Ron Paul Curriculum physics course, we covered Electromagnetic applications. AC generator and DC generator diagram Generator equations Transformers: a device for increasing or decreasing voltage.  Think of hydro wires, coming from the road to a house. Transformer equations Mutual inductance: Units of inductance: called a henry (H) Self inductance: An … Continue reading Physics: Week 28

# How can you create the sound, costumes, sets, and landscapes on a page?

English: Lesson 140 Is it easier for skilled authors to manipulate movie viewers or book readers? Good writers will never be out of work. If you can write effectively, you can think effectively, and thinking leads to the creation of good books, articles, speeches, and movies.

Little children love certain cartoons, and adults love certain block buster actors. It isn't often that you come across a person who says, my favourite person is the rich guy who … Continue reading Businessmen vs. Actors

# Physics: week 27

This week in the Ron Paul Curriculum physics course was an intro to the interplay between electricity and magnetism, and AC circuits. Electromagnetic induction: Just as a magnetic field exerts a force on a current carrying wire, making it want to move, if we move a wire through a magnetic field, it creates an electric … Continue reading Physics: week 27

# Price levels and monetary inflation

Economics: Lesson 145 If there is no 'price level,' how could anyone prove that monetary inflation raises prices? The price level is a statistic the tells the price of goods and services. The price level often fluctuates depending on how much money is in the market. When the money supply increases, prices rise. You might … Continue reading Price levels and monetary inflation

# Physics Week 26: Magnetism

This week of the Ron Paul physics course focused on Magnetism. Here are the main points covered. Observations on magnets Attract and repel similar to electric charges.If a magnet is broken in half the pieces will attract or repel each other depending on their orientation. Magnetic poles Every magnet has 2 poles (north and south) … Continue reading Physics Week 26: Magnetism
