Today is July 4, Independence Day, in the United States.
Let's celebrate by actually behaving independently and rejecting the practice of lying.
Enjoy this essay by Alexander Solzhenitsyn, entitled "Live Not By Lies."
Dr. Gary North has dedicated 10 hours per week for the last 40+ years to the task of investigating what the Bible has to say about economics.
In the process, he has written a verse-by-verse commentary of the entirety of the Old Testament and the New Testament (totaling 8,550 pages).
He is now in the process of publishing his capstone works titled: Christian Economics. He has published the Student's Edition and Teacher's Edition (free at link below) and is working on the Scholar's Edition and Activist's Edition.

Today on Radical Personal Finance, we celebrate Tax Day in the United States (April 17, 2018).
As we all reflect on the actions of the government we US Americans have just supported with our tax money, I thought it would be a good day to read to you a very helpful essay called, The Law.

Money is important. But it's not #1.

I've watched careers destroyed, movie premiers canceled, and marriages torn asunder.
I've thought again and again about the financial destruction being wrought by these allegations against so many men. Not only the loss of careers, the mega-million-dollar settlements, but the financial destruction of forthcoming divorces and the emotional distress leading to lost productivity.
To me, it seemed like an important topic to discuss with regard to finances.
But I held back, because I felt as though I would be picking on ideological opponents when they're down and I don't want to be one who rejoices in another's time of distress.
When the allegations came out via the Washington Post against Judge Roy Moore in Alabama, I felt I couldn't stay silent any longer.
And so, today, here are my...
