Great Magazine

I've just recently started buying the magazine, but I've been on reason.com for a while and I find the whole organization to be a great voice in the political arena. Regardless of your views, the Reason writers make good arguments in support of their points.

Lots of assertions, no numbers.

I decided to read articles at random.

First article was about how Global Warming is apparently a hoax. I am not convinced by its arguments in the least, and after the rest of my experience, I'm not motivated to check its facts.

The second article was about how the Department of Education, among many other agencies, should be eliminated. No numbers are cited, no cost savings estimates, no real explanation on how exactly they expected a patchwork of state DoE's to make an education system that competes with every other nation in the world, nor how they expect states to react when all the funding that the DoE gives them for various education initiatives just poofs.

None of that. Just an assertion that it'd be a good idea, states would be fine because they have their own DoE's, and..well, that's it.

Really, really happy I didn't pay for this.

    Arrrghhh!!! Nothing Unbiased or Reasoned About This Mag!

    Reason??? There is no reason to this magazine. Not conservative or liberal unbiased??? Arrrghhh! The mag is fanatically right-wing? I read seven article of the current issue and all seven were unashamedly ultra-right wing fanatical.

    I thought that I had found a truly unbiased un-liberal un-conservative...just straight-forward news/information paper. I hope i find it...this is not it.

    Neither enlightening or reasoned

    Hard to believe the publishers of this magazine have the nerve to call it reason.

    Not worth your time

    Many better reads exist, e.g., The Week or Newsweek.

    Incredibly One Sided

    If you're looking for Reason, this isn't the magazine for you. It's incredibly liberal with nothing to balance it out.

    An ironic title for a not too reasonable publication.

    More fact, less
