That February of 1959, she didn’t have to wear a coat in class to stay warm, because Norview was heated. She hadn’t noticed the difference earlier because of the steady volley of...

Noble Intentions, Counterproductive Results: The Tragic Inefficacy of a Deontological Policy Approach

Scott Newman The Rittenhouse trial reminded us of what we already know: Americans are now more divided than ever.

The lucky folks in the first group have an open invitation to riot, obstruct, occupy, trespass and shut down anything deemed necessary based on their cause du jour. For everyone else, it’s straight to the gulag for a trial-free sentence of hard labor, or at least for now, extended solitary confinement in a D.C. jail. By now, the American people have heard about the “January 6...
