In this video I’ll be answering the question, “What is Evil?”
Evil is an action chosen by an individual which they believe improves their situation, but does so at the expense of other people.

In this video I’ll be answering the question, “What’s wrong with Communism?”
While I know a lot of people who are communists, and believe that the intentions of most people following this political philosophy are good, ultimately there are some serious problems with the idea. These problems are for the most part only present when Communism is implemented as a non-voluntary system, which is unfortunately how most communists try to put these ideas into effect.

There seems to be a wave of people in the world today who subscribe to the idea that there is nothing objectively true, and it’s all a matter of individual perspective. I share a bit of my own history in that mode of thinking and how I snapped out of it.

On this episode of Ask Cahlen I’ll be answering the question, “Is Taxation Theft?”
In order to answer this question, we must define both theft and taxation, but before we can do that we must define property.
What an individual can own is a debatable topic, but the principle of ownership itself is not. I own my body, therefore I have the right to choose what I do with it, as long as it does not harm another being. I also own my time, which means I own the fruits of how I choose to spend my time. To say otherwise is to claim slavery is legitimate.
In this episode of Ask Cahlen I’ll be answering the question, “Is there Right and Wrong?”
In the modern world there is a lot of doubt as to whether there are objective right and wrong actions one can take. We often here the phrases, “It’s all just an experience,” and, “Nature is survival of the fittest,” from moral relativists, but are all experiences really equal, and does the current state of nature on Earth always tell us what should be or limit what could be?
