Inception

In late 2012, my friend Andrew Frangos and I were discussing mainstream news coverage of policy issues leading up to the Presidential Election. We noticed that all mainstream news channels gave very short-term superficial accounts of problems that we knew were much more complex than the news was empowered to reveal.

After doing further research, we felt that understanding problems such as healthcare, education, crime, and the myriad broken systems we live in today was a full-time job. High quality information was often too long, written in too academic language, and written for people already well-read on the topic. Why wasn't there anything intelligent and accessible written for the masses?

We set out to write what we wanted to read. We aim to write essays that demonstrate a way of thinking rather than explore any particular topic.

The Growth of Charter Schools

If a factory is torn down but the rationality which produced it is left standing, then that rationality will simply produce another factory. If a revolution destroys a government, but the systematic patterns of thought that produced that government are left intact, then those patterns will repeat themselves. . . . There’s so much talk about the system. And so little understanding.
