Celia Wexler | July 23, 2016 | Religion
For some time now, I've been concerned that while Pope Francis was awfully good at improving the tone of the church, he hasn't done much to actually change things. You know, by issuing Papal edicts.

No political victory can change the difficult fact of being stuck here together, which is why we have politics in the first place.

Today, over a fifth of the world's population remain perpetually invisible, over one in five people do not officially count. But they do, because every person counts. We need to give them the option to take off their invisibility cloaks when and if they choose.

Marian L. Knapp | July 23, 2016 | Fifty
This article was originally published on the Voices of Aging Blog. I have a hard time asking for help. I see myself as an independent, competent person who can take care of herself quite well without anyone's assistance. At least that is how I felt until some recent...

Mike Lux | July 23, 2016 | Politics

Remembering Sri Lanka's Black July

Taylor Dibbert | July 23, 2016 | World
Sri Lanka's civil war pitted the almost exclusively Sinhalese military against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

A Possible Sign Of The Apocalypse

Brad Miller | July 23, 2016 | Politics
If congressional oversight causes political functionaries to hesitate to tell presidential appointees to stay on messages that are varnished versions of the truth out of fear of embarrassment, then that would be a wholesome result.

While one cannot fault people for voting the lesser evil this election given the GOP nominee, it must be acknowledged how atrocious the Democratic Party platform is on foreign policy even in the wake of the Bernie Sanders insurgency. Sanders' delegates for those out of the loop...

Trump's 'Be Very Afraid' Versus The Bible's 'Be Not Afraid'

Andy Schmookler | July 23, 2016 | Politics
What does it mean that a large portion of self-described American Christians - e.g. 62% of evangelicals - intend to vote for a candidate who works to instill unnecessary, inappropriate fear in the American people?

What Ailes Us All

Steven Conn | July 23, 2016 | Politics
The timing couldn't have been scripted more symbolically. As Donald Trump was coronated in Cleveland, Roger Ailes, Emperor of Fox News, was getting dethroned. Fox, as plenty of people have observed, did more than any other operation to create the media environment which made Trumpismo possible. Usually authoritarians appoint...

Miles J. Zaremski | July 23, 2016 | Politics
I am one of those independents that Donald Trump (and Hillary Clinton) is trying to win over with his rhetoric, ideas, and platform; after all, I have voted for Reagan, Clinton, Perot and Obama. The first two words to the title of this blog is a reference to...
