Advocate Julian Published in the Daily Caller

Advocate Julian Adorney was published in The Daily Callerabout a the appropriate response to “secular stagnation,” or the a period of long-term stagnation in our economy owing to depressed aggregate demand.

Summers and Krugman are right about one thing: we’re in a period of secular stagnation. But the cure isn’t more government stimulus and easy money. What we need is a dose of laissez-faire economics.

Advocate Rebecca Published in TownHall

Advocate Rebecca Furdek was published in TownHallabout a recent recommendation in Politico for America to have a king.

So, what’s a proper President to do?

For the answer, let us return to history. Let us return to George Washington.

As the Revolutionary War came to a close, King George III asked American-born painter Benjamin West what George Washington planned to do after winning independence. West replied, “They say he will return to his farm.”

“If he does that,” said the king, “he will be the greatest man in the world.”

Advocate Yaël Published in PanAm Post

Young Voices Advocate Yael Ossowski was published by The Pan American Post writing about the benefits of open borders.

Most of the blame can and should be placed at the hands of the ruling socialist regime, which has deprived its people of so many opportunities, but the buck does not stop there. As the revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa demonstrate, determined people can find a way to subvert authoritarianism and bring about greater democracy.

But in order to get there, they need the means. They need trade. They need to be able to improve their economic conditions and have helpful partners in the US government. They need the economic opportunity which would be immediately granted once US Americans are free to spend money in Cuba, travel to Cuba, and trade with Cuban businesses.

Advocate Rachel’s Forbes Post Covered by PJ Media

Young Voices Associate Rachel Burger‘s latest Forbes piece, The American Economy, Not Feminism, is What’s “Ruining” Masculinity, was covered by PJ Media.

Burger’s is a thinly veiled response to Camille Paglia’s praise of the “modern economy as a male epic” published last month in Time. Unlike Paglia, Burger comes to the table lacking an understanding of the relationship between economy and gender. With a millennial’s narrow perspective on American history, Burger manages great insight into the post-dot com world of social intelligence-based tech companies while completely skipping over the debacle of NAFTA with the grossly prejudicial term “low-skill labor.”

Editor Casey Published in The Purple Elephant

Young Voices Editor Casey Given was published in The Purple Elephant about gay rights and the Catholic Church.

Last month, The Advocate sparked a discussion among the gay community by bestowing its Person of the Year title on Pope Francis “for persuading hearts and minds in opening to LGBT people.” Supporters of the Advocate’s choice point to his now famous question last July, “If someone is gay and seeks the Lord with good will, who am I to judge?” Opponents such as The Huffington Post’s Gay Voices editor-at-large Michaelangelo Signorile point to homophobic statements Francis made as the former Archbishop of Buenos Aires calling gay marriage the work of the devil and “a destructive attack on God’s plan.”

Unfortunately, much of the commentary both pro and con has ignored how exactly the Church perceives homosexuality. In the context of Catholic dogma, the new Pope’s statements are far less groundbreaking than they initially seem. Rather, they conform to decades of Church teachings. As a former Catholic schoolboy, I present to you the good, the bad, and the ugly of gay rights in the Church.
