Is it really that noble of an idea to ensure that EVERYONE has the right to vote? If the objective purpose of government is to protect individual rights, and we have a Constitution that reflects that premise, why can't we restrict voting rights to people who demonstrate at least a glimmer of intellect and don't have at least a short-term interest in legally plundering the property of others? Were the Founders actually on to something when they stipulated that only property-owning white males would have the right to vote, and would there be any value in revisiting certain aspects of that policy?
I love this super minimalist small house in Japan. It’s a daring and poetic design using no windows but instead creating a slivered arc of an opening to the sky that forms a courtyard within the outer walls of the home. The open air staircase, leading to the kitchen and dining room, is the only connection to the ground floor bed and bathrooms. I wish there were pics of the first floor but I couldn’t find any. There’s also a bunny garden! The privacy afforded by this house would be fantastic.
