Part 1: What Is the Trans-Pacific Partnership, And Why Don't I Care? This first part of a five part series introduces the Trans Pacific Partnership “trade deal” scam, identifies its potential dangers, as well as the dangers of allowing it to be “fast-tracked” through Congress.

If the Golden Rule Is Scientifically Correct, Then Islamophobia Is Not: An Essay Inspired by a Sam Harris Challenge An entry into Sam Harris's Moral Landscape Challenge.
