Ma Bell with Mind Control: Liberalism, Radicalism, and the Evolving Face of Censorship Democratic politicians and commentators called for new measures to restrict the flow of information on social media.

Note to Democrats: $1400 + $600 Does NOT Equal $2000 Under the current Democratic proposal, eligibility for COVID relief will be based on last year's income. That's like prescribing medicine today based on your temperature last April.

How a Rahm Emanuel Appointment Would Hurt Biden and the Democrats Rahm Emanuel is on the wrong side of many critical issues that Democratic voters (and, in many cases, the electorate as a whole) care deeply about. It would be a deeply divisive and unpopular choice, with serious implications for the administration's political and policy future.

The Sunset Gun: One Nation, Under the Influence of Hate It's always 5 o'clock somewhere. The chamber of the gun is loaded, and evening is almost upon us. The choice -- to tighten our finger around the trigger, or put it down and look toward the dawn -- is up to us

Trump Is the Grotesque Id of the Ruling Elites. His Disease Is Theirs -- and Ours This week, Trump minimized his own illness, an act of self-aggrandizement will almost certainly result in more deaths. But how many elites are repelled, at least in part, because Trump is publicly acting out impulses they hide in themselves?

John Bolton and Liberals' Irrational Hatred of Trump Bolton's bombshells probably won't affect world history much. But failure should not be an unfamiliar experience to Bolton, a blundering war planner who is as incompetent as he is immoral.

Big Bank CEOs Want to "Listen" to Black Communities. They Should Return Their Stolen Wealth Instead. Bank CEOs have been espousing a limited form of anti-racism lately, while studiously ignoring their own institutions' record of exploiting African Americans.

The Killers Inside Us: White Fury and the Thin Blue Line What do we do with a nation that keeps killing? Why do we tolerate the killing? Perhaps it's because, in white American culture, we've been programmed for it.

It's Not a "Chinese Virus." The Correct Name Is "The Capitalism Virus" COVID-19 reached New York primarily from Europe, not China. Italy was a center of the infection in Europe, and the deep business ties between Italy and China -- including the manufacture of designer bags and cheap clothing in Tuscany -- contributed to its devastating spread there.

COVID in the Web Of Generations: A Faint Hello From the "Only" Ones The coronavirus has exposed the vulnerabilities in our world order, just as medical tests reveal vulnerabilities in our bodies.

Of Course Bloomberg's an Oligarch -- and He's Coming For Your Social Security Given his virtually unlimited resources, Bloomberg could theoretically win both the nomination and the presidency. Bloomberg could pay the same "unit price" he paid to make himself mayor of New York -- $88 per voter -- and make himself president for $12 billion. He'd even have $50 billion set aside for a rainy day.

After Iowa, The Democratic Party Faces a Crisis of Legitimacy The Democratic Party's Iowa caucuses wasn't a failure of technology. It was a failure of values. This failure casts a shadow on the party's ability to carry out its basic responsibilities. Worse, it suggests that its leaders care more about helping their friends than serving the public interest.

"Balfouristans" for Bibi: "Apartheid" Isn't an Insult, It's a Blueprint The Palestinians don't need any more advice. If they ever do, they can always look to the South African freedom struggle. It will remind them of the path forward, a path for justice they have long known lies before them, the only path that will lead to a decent future for the generations to come: no compromise on basic rights, no colonialism, and full nationhood for the Palestinian people.
