Our Moral Burden After the Torture Revelations Coming to the US in 1951 as an 11 year old from Germany, I was seen as an emissary from the nation that was seen as categorically evil. I thoroughly absorbed and accepted the judgment of collective guilt that my new country had imposed. And now that same principle demands that I must also accept responsibility for the torture that was committed in our name.

We Have Black Swans A lack of future-orientation seems to characterize our society and our politics these days. This is happening even while our ability to shape future events is increasing substantially. Even the close call at Chelyabinsk last year did not have major policy repercussions. By contrast, Native Americans had an ethic of preserving the integrity of the environment unto the seventh generation, even while they had only limited means

The State of Labor The check-mating of Democratic initiatives in Congress increasingly means that progressive causes must be served by private initiative to the greatest degree possible. The cause of labor is the most obvious case in point.

Worrying a Fragile Social Cohesion Religious belief may be the key animating impulse behind a fragmenting social cohesion in the US. If so, a frustrated progressivism must choose its causes wisely.

On Negro dialect If Senator Reid cannot speak the truth about race without it being considered a gaffe, then perhaps others among us need to carry the discourse forward.

The Path Not Taken President Carter's views on the state of the country in 1979 are even more relevant today. A historical perspective on how we got here helps to clarify our current challenges---political, economic, and technical.

On Torture: The Issue of Collective Guilt After Hitler, Germany had to deal with collective guilt. Now that the USA has its own issue of the violation of the Geneva Convention regarding torture, the question of collective guilt needs once again to be raised. As far as I can tell, there has been essentially no discussion of our common, shared responsibility for what we have allowed to happen.

Toward a New Economy The proposed bailout is a rescue effort for an economy that has not served the nation well. But the alternatives are not up for debate. As the bailout is unlikely to be effective in the long run, it is best to explore alternative economies now.

Musings on the Fed The center of power in our country has already gravitated from Washington to Wall Street. Its incestuous marriage to the Fed completes the hegemony of capital over our political institutions. On the one hand, capital claims the freedoms accorded all private ventures. And on the other hand the Fed has been deliberately insulated from public pressures.The people hardly matter anymore. This is the essence of fascism.

Assuring a Progressive Future The opposition has no intention of playing fair. Too bad the press is otherwise engaged. It is not our press anymore, simple as that. It has become the mouthpiece for interests not our own. In this fragile state of our democracy, it is not enough for us to shove Barack out front as our gladiator against the forces of evil. It is not enough to mobilize for the election and then retire to the sidelines.

Tantrum Politics A couple of years ago our California ballot offered voters the opportunity to support stem cell research in the form of a $3B state funding commitment to a targeted research program. I recall only the vaguest details of what I voted for, and I certainly had misgivings about many aspects of this initiative. This is not the kind of issue where direct democracy should be exercised.
