It is time for us to recognize the inaccuracies and faults within our history and human culture - whether it be in regards to Christmas, Jesus or terrorism - and use this identification as an impetus for improvement. Happy Holidays.

I Hate Fundamentalism

Ian Reifowitz

Fundamentalism is an idea so extreme that its adherents will do anything to see it succeed. Anything. Fundamentalism is an idea that cancels out any competing concerns, any other values or commitments. To a fundamentalist, the end justifies the means, no matter what.

The NRA Goes Full Insurrectionist

Now that the NRA is embracing those who are openly fantasizing about shooting and killing Democrats, will some of those high profile supporters begin to distance themselves from the organization and its toxic ideology? Probably not, given the media's lack of attention to the group's latest threat.

It is interesting to listen to members of the media discuss the state of his mental health rather than his racist attitudes and beliefs. Had he been a person of color, or Muslim, he would have been designated as either a thug or a terrorist and the integrity of entire groups of people and communities would have to bear the cost for his actions.

War, Murder and the American Way

Today, our national numbness is wrapped in a Confederate flag. The young man who killed nine members of Charleston's Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on Wednesday night was an old-school racist.

20 Years After OKC Bombing, NRA Has Mainstreamed McVeigh's Insurrectionist Idea in Conservative Movement

Josh Horwitz | Posted 06.23.2015 | Politics

It's remarkable to think that, 20 years after we buried 168 Americans in a horrific of terrorism, we are hearing the same exact perverse philosophy being promoted by Republican candidates running for the office of President of the United States.

Why We Need to See What the Monsters Look Like

Several major retail chains have refused to sell the Rolling Stone with Tsarnaev on the cover due to poor taste and insensitivity. This is a different type of insensitivity -- insensitivity to the role of a free press and responsible journalism.

Miranda, McVeigh, and the Boston Marathon Bombing: Where's the Distinction?

Adam Banner | Posted 07.09.2013 | Crime

When investigators had their answers and Tsarnaev had already incriminated himself, only then did they read him his rights. He immediately fell silent, protecting the rights previously denied him.

Reflections on Boston

To my daughters, a bad day simply means "time out" and a meal without dessert. Bad guys look like Darth Vader and the Joker and they don't know about Adam Lanza or Timothy McVeigh. I fear those conversations are coming one day soon.

They are said to have been "radicalized." This is largely a circular explanation that reduces to a name. One might as well say that they had been jihadized, zealotized, or brainwashed.

Terror as Instant Sexual Gratification - Rape?

Are we placing too much emphasis on ideology and/or alleged grievances rather than the mindset and social development of the perpetrators?

This Just In... To CNN...

It is not only pointless but can actually be counter-productive to wildly speculate on who is responsible for the terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon. Domestic, foreign, religious, secular, or just purely insane: we really have no idea why this attack happened right now.

Muslims and the Boston Bombing: A Statement

Ethan Casey | Posted 06.17.2013 | Politics
Ethan Casey

Each new incident represents both a need and a fresh opportunity to say the same things over again: We're all in it together; there is no "us" versus "them"; Muslims and Americans are not each other's enemies; the fact that terrorism is wrong does not excuse bigotry.

Jumping to Conclusions

Given the massively photographed events yesterday in Copley Square and the powerful law enforcement resources that have been brought to bear, it is likely that investigators will piece together a more detailed picture of what actually happened and may identify specific suspects before long.

As dangerous as guns are, it is equally dangerous to our civil liberties if reporting provisions in laws, like the NY SAFE Act, are written broadly.

McVeigh's Execution, 11 Years Later

Jody Lyneé Madeira | Posted 08.12.2012 | Crime
Jody Lyneé Madeira

I am writing about Timothy McVeigh because I am afraid that we will forget him. For in forgetting him, we overlook others like him -- individuals who not only have an insidious world view but who have the conceit to take others' lives in acting upon it.

No Medium, No Message, No Closure?

If the federal government had the capacity to successfully arrange a secure broadcast of the execution of Timothy McVeigh in 2001, then surely it could arrange for a secure viewing of a select number of images of bin Laden's corpse now.
