The Religion Of Climatism

by Josef Joffevia Commentary
Thursday, October 17, 2019

Greta Thunberg, the teenager from Stockholm, is the prophet of a new religion sweeping the West. Call it Climatism. Like any religion worthy of the name, it comes with its own catechism (what to believe) and eschatology (how the world will end). Thunberg’s bible is the latest report of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which gives us 12 years to save civilization as we know it.

October Man: Mikhail Gorbachev

by Christopher R. O’Deavia Military History in the News
Friday, October 18, 2019

October is the month for bringing in the harvest and consolidating power. According to his biography on the Gorbachev Foundation website, the last leader of the Soviet Union is proud of his ability to detect a fault in a combine harvester just by the sound of it. His acumen with agricultural machinery—learned from his father—helped the younger Gorbachev become the youngest winner of the Order of the Red Banner of Labor award for his part in bringing in the bumper crop of 1949 at the age of just seventeen. The award helped secure him a place at the Moscow State University, where he studied law.

Adam Silver Cut No Constitutional Corners

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Thursday, October 17, 2019

Unfortunately, however, O’Rourke, Warren and Silver demonstrate the tendency of too many progressives to cut constitutional corners, to despise and bully adversaries, and to practice theatrical but selective indignation about attacks on fundamental American principles, some of which they themselves traduce. Just what we did not need in our dispiriting civic life: additional evidence that there really is no such thing as rock bottom.

Exporters Make Money

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Thursday, October 17, 2019

In an otherwise excellent critique of Donald Trump’s trade policy, Mercatus economist Veronique de Rugy writes: Worst of all, the deal would actually reinforce these Chinese behaviors. For instance, the deal in question would require that China use its state-owned enterprises to buy $40 billion to $50 billion worth of American agricultural products annually—instead of the roughly $20 billion it bought previously.

Review: New Churchill Biography Sweeping, Superbly Written Full-Life Account

featuring Andrew Robertsvia The Post And Courier
Thursday, October 17, 2019

Taking on a nearly 1,000-page biography of Winston Spencer Churchill is apt to leave most readers feeling as if their lives have been a silly waste of time. This protean figure, surely the most influential statesman of the 20th century, who served over his 90 years in nearly every office of the British government, including twice as prime minister, and who led his country through the horrors of World War II, was also a deeply eccentric man.

Stanford Researchers Bring Together People With Different Political Views

Thursday, October 17, 2019

Stanford researchers wanted to test a theory: If you put Americans with different views together, it might change their minds. They wanted to find out more about the political divide in the U.S., and they had a hypothesis that people on opposite sides of the aisle aren’t actually so sharply divided.

Ten to 15 years ago, pundits liked to speculate that California was on the verge of becoming a failed state. In the early years of the new century the state suffered widespread blackouts thanks to a botched deregulation of its electricity market.

I Love The Olympics

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Monday, February 19, 2018

I've heard many people on Facebook and elsewhere talk about how politicized the 2018 Olympics are. In this case, though, I think politics is in the eye of the beholder. Sure, I thought that Mike Pence had incredibly bad manners in standing only for the U.S. team at the opening ceremonies. And some of the mainstream media went gaga over the sister of North Korea's chief murderer. But if you choose to focus on that, that's your choice.

A frightening recent report: an estimated 200 million Muslim girls and women alive today have been forced to go through female genital mutilation; also frightening: in America and Europe most of the leaders of the feminist movement have remained all but silent amidst this horror. There have been, thankfully though, a few exceptions. The most notable of them has been Ayaan Hirsi Ali who has become the leading voice in the fight against this attack upon the body, heart and spirit of so many.

An Overview Of “Resilience” And Climate Change

by Alice Hill, William Kakenmastervia Taylor and Francis Online
Monday, February 19, 2018

What do we mean when we speak in terms of “resilience?” Why has “resilience” become the hot buzzword, and why is it useful for political leaders who want to avoid saying the words “climate change?” Will the choice of words make a difference when it comes to the need to design infrastructure – roads, bridges, tunnels, houses, factories, power plants, airports, railroads – with rising sea levels, increased storms, and hotter temperatures in mind?
