I thought that I had done my part--simply write something about what my Polish family and their comrades had experienced. I was horribly wrong in that assessment.

If the people of the Middle East stop funding and supporting these killers, then the rest of the world will surely stand by their side. Now is the time to act, before this becomes such a compelling case to so many more testosterone driven, frustrated men that we are plunged into a new world war in the Middle East to stop them.

It is both fascinating and disturbing to gain a peek back in time, with the grand benefit of history and hindsight, and the wonder of it all. Unfortunately -- unforgivably -- and despite great strides across the land and around the world, anti-Semitism continues to rear its ugly head to this day.

Untold (or Retold?) History: Oliver Stone's Showtime Series

Robert Orlando | Posted 11.17.2014 | Entertainment
Robert Orlando

Stone's confrontation with myth should be embraced, yet I don't think this simplistic Left vs. Right dichotomy, while making good drama, is helpful. Nor is limiting evil to capitalism, when the bloody saga of state Communism has been condemned prima facie by 20th century history.

Readers seem to be captivated by lists but do they ever wonder where the numbers come from? How does the list writer know there aren't more than eight ways to fall in love after being dumped? Was the author just lazy? Where do the "facts" come from?

The Hatchet may be on the opposite end of the political spectrum from the ultra-liberal feminists of Pussy Riot, yet like the women he was silenced for exercising Russia's constitutionally protected right to free speech.

Why Is ISIS So Awful? Evolution, Ideology, Culture, and Sex

Clay Farris Naff | Posted 10.11.2014 | Politics
Clay Farris Naff

Who are these guys, why are they so awful, and how can we account for their success? Many are trying to find specific answers, a few resort to racist slurs, but I hope to get to the heart of the matter by framing the questions in evolutionary psychology.

Inerrancy, literalism, or unexamined belief in the Bible, why does Fundamentalism still have a strong hold on so many Christians today?

Week in Film: Third Person, Jersey Boys and More

Marshall Fine

Having never seen the stage version of the jukebox musical on which it was based (in its 10th year on Broadway), I still felt that I was getting a representative feel for that show, as filtered through Eastwood's flinty consciousness. But that doesn't make it a good movie.

The Zinn Education Project

Today's texts acknowledge "blemishes" like the internment of Japanese Americans, but the texts either ignore or gloss over the fact that for almost a decade, during the earliest fascist invasions of Asia, Africa, and Europe, the Western democracies encouraged rather than fought Hitler and Mussolini, and sometimes gave them material aid.
