It's not something most people want to acknowledge, but if you're unwilling to get your hands dirty, you're not going to drive out any invaders any time soon. They rarely share your scruples.

Who is a terrorist and who is a freedom fighter is usually a matter of perspective and politics. Are they fighting for freedom? Whose freedom? Freedom from what or whom? What will they do once that freedom is secured? How far are they willing to go in the fight for freedom? Only attacking military t...

Bruce G Charlton Since ‘the Laura Spence Affair’ in 2000, the UK government has spent a great deal of time and effort in asserting that universities, especially Oxford and Cambridge, are unfairly excluding people from low social class backgrounds and privileging those from higher social classes.

"My dearest Winston received tutelage from the finest Oxford alumni. Must he really learn in the same school as those unwashed Sean's and Liam's?"

This sounds more than a little sketchy to me. IQ tests, and most other standardized intelligence tests, are culturally biased and act as a one-size-fits-all--despite the fact that students learn differently and intelligence manifests in different ways--ways which cannot be exhaustively explored in a...

If you throw a gender reveal party and the kid is trans or NB, don't you owe them another correct gender reveal party? :nerdy:

My favorite outcome for these parties is when the kid ends up being trans and their parents look like idiots.

All this upheaval will lead to civil conflict and international wars. Millions will die. Nationalists will use fear of migrants to seize power. Resources desperately needed to fight climate change and improve infrastructure will be diverted to fighting wars over our planets dwindling resources. I fi...

The Arab Spring refugee crisis will look tame compared to what's coming next. They will come from fertile valleys which now run dry. They will come from the Sahel once it is devoured by the desert. They will come from Australia and California so they do not burn alive. They will come from coasts whe...

No body is forced to live in Texas or any other state. Ah yes, we live in the fantasy land where anyone can afford to just up and move anywhere they want at any time!

To be blunt, Georgia got boycott because Georgia is more economically and geopolitically expendable. I don't mean that as an insult. Just a fact. Boycotting the Beijing Olympics would have caused an international furor. And cost the US a chance to participate in the medal-winning d***-measuring cont...
