Brian Levin, J.D.

Our focus on only one type of ideological terrorist risk creates what economists call availability heuristics, where fears about the frequency of events come to frame an inaccurate understanding of them.

John Feffer

Poland has never been a particularly liberal country. In other words, its political culture has not focused on the individual or individual rights.

Ian Reifowitz | Posted 12.22.2014 | Media
Ian Reifowitz

Most of the rank-and-file conservatives with whom we might interact get their information from conservative media sources. Republican politicians are ensconced within it as well.

Obery M. Hendricks, Jr., Ph.D.

I am convinced that most rank-and-file right-wing Christians are sincere and not cynical in the politics they embrace.
