This will be a list of blogs and websites that I particularly enjoy, arranged topically. It is a work-in-progress.
- Bleeding Heart Libertarians: a great blog maintained by a variety of libertarians who are mostly academic philosophers and who tend to lean left in that they prioritize social justice.
- The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy: all articles are written by professionals in the relevant field, aimed at other philosophers without the same background. Good for finding resources and getting overviews of various debates.
- Prosblogion: very enjoyable philosophy of religion blog covering new papers and issues.
- PhilPapers: great way to find scholarly articles on various philosophical topics.
Politics, foreign policy, law, military
- Simple Justice: great blog discussing various legal issues from the perspective of a defense attorney. Don’t comment if you’re not a lawyer or you’re likely to be bitten.
- War on the Rocks: many contributors, discussing various issues of military concern.
- The Watch: Radley Balko’s blog at WaPo dealing with police/government overreach, police brutality, and so forth.
- Lawfare: great blog with a variety of legal perspectives, discussing cases which involve terrorism, intelligence collection, and so forth
- XX Committee: blog of a former NSA CI professional and current professor at the Naval War College. Very interesting and thought-provoking.
- Jesus Creed: Scot McKnight’s blog about Christianity. Lots of great posts and guest posts.
Strength and conditioning
- Military Athlete: fairly sophisticated, highly-demanding programming aimed at developing “military athletes”. Training programs for schools, for general fitness, and so forth. (Also has programming tailored to “law enforcement athletes,” “mountain athletes,” and others.)
- Strengtheory: my favorite blog/website talking about strength and conditioning from a scientific perspective. Just great.
- ExRx: money, particularly the kinesiology section, which shows joint articulations.
- Get Body Smart: Muscular System: figure out all the articulations of your various joints, what they’re called, and what they do. Invaluable if you’re trying to get serious about training.
