ELITES: May 10, 2018 A relative recently sent me a copy of an essay written by William Deresiewicz, “The Disadvantages of an Elite Education.” It was published in the American Scholar in 2008. What an eye-opener. Deresiewicz opens his essay with the honest admission that he only realized the insularity of his upbringing one day when a plumber came to his house. Confronted with a...

PROGRESSIVISM: May 3, 2018 While the November elections may seem like a long way off, we need to be thinking about the consequences of those elections.

DEMOCRATS: April 26, 2018 Republican Debbie Lesko won this week’s special congressional election in the Eighth District of Arizona.

PERSUASION: April 12, 2018 One of the attributes that sets free and civilized societies apart from those enslaved by dictators or mired in barbarism is the value that is placed upon the art of persuasion. BusinessDictionary.com defines persuasion as the “process aimed at changing a person’s (or a group’s) attitude or behavior...

ENTREPRENEURSHIP: April 5, 2018 The outrage presently directed at Facebook for providing data that ended up being used by Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign is characteristically hypocritical. As former Obama campaign staffer Will St. Clair admitted in a 2013 New York Times article, the political use of user data aggregated by...
