Lawyers For Nick Sandmann Begin Their Pursuit of Justice.

Diogenes Sarcastica™ at Diogenes' Middle Finger - 9 hours ago

White Wolf at White Wolf - 9 hours ago
State lawmakers will again try to move Oklahoma's Native American Day to Columbus Day, less than a year after former Gov. Mary Fallin vetoed a popular bipartisan bill that would have done so. Reps.

Regulating Social Media -- my talk at the University of Virginia

JB at Balkinization - 9 hours ago
Here is a talk I gave on January 25th, 2019, at a conference on the Internet and Democracy at the University of Virginia. The subject is how to regulate social media. The title U.

I discuss different models for social media regulation, arguing against treating social media as public fora and in favor of antitrust/competition law and information fiduciary approaches. I also argue that social media companies have to take on public responsibilities in the digital public sphere, something that... more »

Fukushima and the Privatization of Risk: More Evidence of the Same

Majia's Blog at Majia's Blog - 10 hours ago
In 2013 I published a book titled Fukushima and the Privatization of Risk, describing how risks from the disaster were "privatized" as individuals and communities had to assume responsibilities for monitoring and reducing health and environmental hazards produced by the high levels of contamination from the 3/11 disaster at Daiichi, involving 3 nuclear meltdowns. In 2016, I wrote a book that compared how risk was managed across three disasters - the BP oil spill, the financial crisis, and the Fukushima crisis, demonstrating that across cases individuals and communities were left w... more »

Free Speech

It’s all very well arguing about free speech, no-platforming, diversity, safe spaces, being/not being triggered, positive discrimination and having the chance to see and hear others’ points of view before making up your own mind about controversial issues. I get all that, and I do realise that you can’t have everything your own way. (Bit like Brexit) However, the BBC’s over-exposure of Ash Sarkar is verging on ‘diversity of opinion too far’.

A New Centrist Party is Still a Stupid Idea

Phil at All That Is Solid ... - 14 hours ago
The tide flows in and out, the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, and discontented Labour MPs keep promising they're going to split off and launch a new party "soon". According to Toby Helm, one of *The Observer's*'s biggest cheerleaders for this miserable Blairist project, discontent over Brexit and Jeremy Corbyn's foreign policy positioning are bringing them close to quitting. But hold on a moment, thanks to the benefit of having a memory aren't these *always* the reasons? So why now, what's new, how have things changed? Continuing the fine tradition of the diminishing n... more »

We Don't Need No Education

Once again, under Ontario's Conservatives, education is under the gun. Heather Mallick writes: In [their] first few months of government, [Doug Ford] and his cabinet have cancelled plans for Ontario’s first official French university and three new university campuses in Brampton, Markham and Milton, cut tuition fees thereby taking $440 million from university and college revenues, partially reverted to loans rather than grants for poorer students, forced universities to adopt a largely unnecessary free speech policy, considered cancelling sex education entirely, and are now prepar... more »

Bruce Kent on Trump's INF pull-out

CND's Bruce Kent on Sky News last night talking about Donald Trump's withdrawal from the INF treaty and ramping up the nuclear arms race. Kent is a British political activist and a former Roman Catholic priest. Active in the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, he was the organisation's general secretary from 1980 to 1985 and its chair from 1987 to 1990. He now holds the honorary title of vice-president. In 1987, Kent left the priesthood rather than comply with an instruction from the late Cardinal Basil Hume to desist from involvement in the 1987 UK general election in accordance wi... more »

Does the U.S. Navy Really Need to Worry About the Size of the Fleet?

James Holmes at Test Feed Using Fields - 15 hours ago
*James Holmes* *Security, * [image: Flickr / Official U.S. Navy Imagery] Tallying up ship numbers makes poor shorthand for U.S. naval power. Bean counting yields one datapoint, albeit an important one. There is some bare minimum of assets needed to concentrate strength at scenes of battle. But bean counting not only disregards the enemy, the surroundings, and the goals set by the navy’s overseers, it doesn’t differentiate among ship types. The walking dead are ravaging Capitol Hill—again! I refer not to literal ghouls but to misleading ideas about navies that refuse to die in po... more »

Veiled Faces of Racism: the Half-Truths Spoken by Establishment Provocateurs

Racism is alive and thriving in the 21st century. It did not take the pictures of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam dressed up in a KKK hood or a wearing a black face to understand that one of America’s original sins continues to haunt us to this day. Our nation is too steeped in social classifications—artificial constructs that were always meant to incite tribalism—to think that we have arrived at a post-racial age.

On The Counter-Enlightenment

Anoop Verma at The Verma Report - 16 hours ago
A Painting of Rousseau (1753)The term “counter-enlightenment” became popular about 200 years after the Enlightenment, when Isaiah Berlin used it in his essay, “The Counter-Enlightenment,” to refer to the opposition to the French Enlightenment. The essay was published in 1973, and in 1981, it was reprinted in a collection of his works, *Against the Current: Essays in the History of Ideas*. Berlin argues that the central principles of the French Enlightenment were “universality, objectivity, rationality, and the capacity to provide permanent solutions to all genuine problems of life ... more »

December is always a fun month with lots of special activities like concerts, dinners and get togethers. So in noting our January schedule, I see it was more social than usual, mostly church activities, but a nice members' opening at the Museum of Art, too.

Russia's New Super Long-Range Cruise Missile Has a Problem

Michael Peck at Test Feed Using Fields - 16 hours ago
*Michael Peck* *Security, * [image: Wikimedia Commons] And it's pretty easy to see. Russia’s plan to develop a long-range version of the Kalibr naval cruise missile is a mistake, warn critics. The missile is too big to fit on many Russian warships. But what’s surprising is that this criticism isn’t coming from the Pentagon or CIA. It’s coming from Russia’s own defense experts, who say the new missile is more Soviet-era megalomania than clever engineering. Russia created a stir earlier this year when it announced that it would develop a long-range version of Kalibr, which is actu... more »
