Jon Stewart rips commentators at Fox News a new one in this 7 minute segment from the Daily Show. In the clip, he puts on display the frightening inconsistency of supposed “freedom-promoting” anchors on Fox News, most of whom have no problem completely shredding the Bill of Rights in pursuit of fear- and war-mongering.
Despite Stewart’s misstep at the end regarding requiring background checks for purchase of firearms, he lays a clear example of how current “conservatism” has nothing to do with liberty and everything to do with power. If only he realized that his liberalism basically does the same thing.

LearnLiberty.org is a great new resource for teaching people about libertarian ideas. They regularly produce neat videos demonstrating various principles. A few videos have recently been released that are quite nice.

Recapping the interesting and significant news of this past week.
Tom Woods posted a fun article this week concerning 26 Things Non-Paul Voters are Basically Saying.
Sadly, Judge Andrew Napolitano’s FreedomWatch show on FoxBusiness is being canceled. Not cool, Fox.
An LCC reader sent me an interesting interview from the BBC with Alexandre Christoyannopoulos asking if Jesus was an anarchist.
The Onion satirizes that Iran is concerned that the U.S. is on the verge of obtaining its 8500th nuclear weapon. Oh noez!
If you’re a V for Vendetta fan, you might find this article interesting about the culture connection between V and the hacker group Anonymous.
I find technology trends quite interesting, and of course one of the hottest trends right now is tablet computing. Dan Moren writes about using his iPad as his only work computer for a three days.
You ought to give a Fed Valentine this week.
If you are like me, you sort of threw up in your mouth during Clint Eastwood’s Super Bowl commercial. Reason.tv responds with this:

Have you heard of LearnLiberty.org? If not, you should check it out. It’s a great resource of video content for, you guessed it, learning about liberty. I love these videos by Art Carden (a fellow Christian libertarian) called “Trade is Made of Win.”
Consider this question for a moment: If you were asked to explain why a free market is a good thing, how would you do it? What would come to mind? In less than 10 minutes of watching these videos, you can understand the benefits of trade and be ready to explain it to someone else.

The LearnLiberty.org project is sponsored by the Institute for Humane Studies, so kudos to them for doing great work.
