Monday, September 16, 2019

President Trump’s criticism of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and his insistence that the allies “pay their fair share,” have received prominent play in the media. What has been forgotten is that American frustration with burden sharing within the alliance is a long-standing issue. Both Republican and Democratic administrations across the last seven decades have echoed this complaint.

by Charles Blahousvia The Ripon Society Mission
Tuesday, September 17, 2019

Among the hottest topics of this political season is “Medicare for All” (M4A), a concept embraced by several current candidates for president, and criticized by others. M4A is one of the most consequential policy ideas ever put before the American electorate, and it is vital that we understand exactly what it is, what it isn’t, and what its implications would be.

Verified Accountability

by Evelyn Douekvia Aegis Paper Series
Tuesday, September 17, 2019

The way platforms currently conduct content moderation has been delegitimized, and new forms of governance will need to emerge to meet the demands of the moment. Semi-independent and transparent self-regulatory oversight mechanisms offer significant advantages. As the actors closest to the front line, platforms will always need to play a significant role in drawing lines for online speech, given the high-volume, fast-moving and context-dependent nature of the decisions involved.

Below is an article reprinted from Antiwar.com. It is an edited version of a talk I gave about the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 2007. I’ve edited it slightly since it appeared in 2007. Specifically, I made a charge at the end against George W. Bush that turns out to be almost certainly unjustified and so I removed it.

Monday, September 16, 2019

Former U.S. Defense Secretary, retired Marine General James Mattis, with Francis (“Bing”) West, authored a remarkable book on leadership applicable well beyond the frontiers of military service. Call Sign Chaos: Learning to Lead is a modern day equivalent of Marcus Aurelius’ Emperor’s Handbook. CHAOS, Mattis’ Marine Corps call sign, arose from an irreverent compliment for “colonel has another outstanding solution” made by his staff. I have had the good fortune of knowing both authors.

Not All Gifted Children Are From Affluent Families

All of us understand why so many discussions about K-12 education center on bringing low-achieving students up to speed. How could they not? Despite massive increases in school spending over the past half-century, the U.S. Department of Education reports that nearly two-thirds of our youngsters score below the proficient level on national reading tests, and large socioeconomic disparities persist.

Universal Healthcare And The First Lesson Of Politics

quoting Thomas Sowellvia The Daily Campus
Wednesday, September 18, 2019

One thing is very clear following the Democratic presidential debates in Houston last week: Our leaders are far more interested in vying for the nomination than in proposing solutions that will actually help people. The appeasement of a ruthlessly progressive primary constituency is proving more alluring than the desire to improve the country by proposing practical solutions, the intended and unintended consequences of which have been thoroughly considered. The most prominent example of this failure in leadership is the promise of universal healthcare.

Decades before America became a nation, Ben Franklin formed a small group in Philadelphia. The group, known as the Junto, was made up of individuals with many skills and interests. The purpose of the Junto was to improve the group's members and the city in which they lived. Think of these circles as chat rooms, but up close and personal.
