Why I Will Be Attending Cardinal Conversations Tonight

by Michael McFaulvia Stanford Daily
Thursday, February 22, 2018

Before being asked to serve as a faculty advisor to Cardinal Conversations, I had never read anything written by Charles Murray. Life is short. I have over three-dozen books, stacked by my bedside and on my iPad, that I can’t find time to read. Of course, I was not opposed to having him speak on campus, and concurred with our organizational committee’s decision to invite him here. But I personally had never been interested enough in Murray to read his books or attend a talk.

America Has Held Together Through Worse Times Than Now

quoting Morris P. Fiorinavia Brookings Institution
Wednesday, February 21, 2018

Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) reminded President Trump earlier this year, “America is an idea, not a race.” That idea is actually a plural of concepts based on our Constitution, our system of democratic institutions and norms, and our belief in the American Dream—the notion that regardless of where you come from, you can realize anything, go anywhere.

Hard To See America’s ‘Success Story’ In Current Bloody Times

by Niall Fergusonvia Boston Globe
Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Is the world turning pinker? Is all for the best (as Voltaire’s Dr. Pangloss claims in “Candide”) in the best of all possible worlds — or at least, better than in any previous state of the world? Or is the world turning a darker shade — blood red rather than pink?
