The Biblical Fallacies of Economic Liberalism

David J. Dunn, PhD

David French, of the National Review, recently took to task "progressive Christians" who think that economic policy should consider the "common good." He gathers a smattering of biblical references (it seems, with considerable help from Google) to rebuke this economic heresy, but his lack of respect for context results in claims that are both anachronistic and ridiculous.

Warren J. Blumenfeld | Posted 07.22.2015 | Politics
Warren J. Blumenfeld

To imply that Bernie Sanders' style of Democratic Socialism even stands on the same side of the political spectrum as the National Socialism of the Nazi Party shows not only a total misunderstanding of history and political theory, but more importantly, it underscores yet again the dog whistle politics of neo-conservatism.

Critics of Federal Spending on Cities Should Look to the South

David Paul | Posted 05.03.2015 | Politics
David Paul

If we are going to discuss the effectiveness of federal policies in our cities -- and we should -- it is time to discuss as well why some states continue to benefit systemically to the disadvantage of others, with little or no benefit to show for it in terms of relative progress as measured by socio-economic indicators.

A revenue-neutral carbon tax is a wise and bold idea, but there is a need for wise and bold individuals to embrace it and fight for it.

The Allegations About Lena Dunham Are Bad for Everyone

Ryan Chapin Mach | Posted 01.04.2015 | College
Ryan Chapin Mach

It's not surprising that any of this would find its way into the National Review. What's surprising is how easily that publication has snaked its way into the concerns of people who seriously care about the rights that victims of abuse are entitled to.

Joseph Amodeo

The Amazing Racism

Robert J. Elisberg | Posted 06.25.2014 | Politics
Robert J. Elisberg

If any humor can be taken from having this fellow imposed on our psyche, it's seeing all the conservative voices in Congress and the media and press running away from Mr. Bundy so fast and hard that they can't see where they were going and almost became moderates.

Understanding The National Review's Climate Change Coverage

D. R. Tucker | Posted 04.24.2014 | Politics
D. R. Tucker

Note that in this column, Goldberg does not declare climate change a hoax. Of course, if he did so, he would, in essence, label his NR colleague Jim Manzi a liar, and he's not about to do that. So if it isn't a hoax, one has to ask: How does he think the GOP should address this issue?

Paul Milo | Posted 05.31.2014 | Media
Paul Milo

The bias is not political, but in favor of generating the most buzz, getting the most page views or the highest ratings. And eyeballs, especially in the Internet era, equal revenue.

Seth Shulman

What makes this case so important is that science, like free speech, needs protecting too. Sadly, we have been living in a period during which many parties -- often with funding from the fossil fuel industry -- have knowingly spread disinformation about climate change.

A Defense of Onesies

The problem is that the right's definition of conservativism is, and will likely always be, exclusively popular among white men who would never be comfortable in a onesie.

There's no getting around the fact that we have to wean the world off fossil fuels as soon as possible, and one of the answers, my friend, is blowing in the wind.

When the Blame Game Goes Bad

Jeff Schweitzer | Posted 01.23.2014 | Politics
Jeff Schweitzer

In the rather twisted mind of a modern conservative, President Obama is to blame for all our ills, but he gains no credit for all that goes well. This is no exaggeration; it is quite literally true.
