The More Freedom Foundation is trying to save the world.

We’re at an odd point in history. We could be on the cusp of a new Golden Age, or we could be marching down the path to World War III. Despite the picture presented by most of our media, the world really is in great shape. The world is governed by US power and a set of institutions that have largely succeeded in bringing about unparalleled peace and prosperity.

The US won’t be able to play Globo-Cop much longer, but the systems we’ve set up, run more cooperatively, could give the world centuries of peace. Unfortunately, the benefits of globalization have been poorly communicated, and they haven’t been evenly distributed within the developed world. This has generated serious instability within the world’s most powerful countries. In the coming years it’s possible that this instability will grow and spread.

Which is what makes the MFF’s mission so vital. We aim to provide counter-programming to the politicians and news sources that tell you everything is terrible. We produce videos and publications that use history to provide a more accurate picture of the world and ward against the dangerous “solutions” proposed by people in the United States and abroad. We also maintain a growing reading list that uses the work of others to enlarge on the themes we point out. We are an educational institution, but we’re also agitating for a better world. We are most concerned with fixing the US criminal justice system and saving the US world system from the US government, but we’ve got an opinion on everything. I hope you’ll dive in to the resources we provide, and consider supporting our work as we go forward.

At this point the MFF is mostly just me, Rob Morris, and the odd network of friends and supporters I’ve built up over the years. My work has been covered in Forbes, and has been re-tweeted by the likes of Reza Aslan, and the actor Donal Logue from Vikings. It also got me invited to speak at TEDx Ă–stersund in Sweden. All this recognition has been fantastic, but I’m probably proudest of the fact that I convinced a high school classmate NOT to hold an anti-Syrian refugee demonstration at the CT state house. You can reach me through twitter @RobboLaw, instagram @thegoldenage, or the MFF’s Facebook page.

    I have re-worked my analysis of the TheRelgionOfPeace.com terrorism database and oil prices. I keep forgetting to live by the KISS principle, particularly when I’m throwing numbers around. So, I chucked out my attempt to combine OPEC SUPPLY and PRODUCTION variables and just stuck with OIL PRICES.

    OIL PRICES (as a proxy for Saudi/UAE cash reserves) and TERRORISM DEATHS are related…I think that is clear just from a simple graphical comparison.

    Here is a brief write-up about what I did on Medium.com:


    And a simple graph:


    Bottom line: Yes. Oil prices and terrorism deaths are related.

    More surprising..the The Religion of Peace (TROP) database is not as bad as we might think. They are hatemongers, but their database matches up pretty weil to the more academic terrorism database — GTD — from the University of Maryland. In fact, I feel more comfortable knowing TROP will throw pretty much anything into their database while the GTD decision process is probably burdened with layers of political correctness and good intentions. Social science and good intentions don’t mix.

      Thanks, this is is really cool! I tweeted it out and shared it on the Facebook page. Sorry to take so long to get back to you on this. I’ll be honest, I don’t really understand regressions and the like, but I’m happy to see that you conclude I’m not full of shit.
