If you wanted to think about what's being said, we'd recommend that we drop the fraught term "segregation" in favor of terms like "racial imbalance."

IF THERE'S A SHUTDOWN, THE PUBLIC WILL PROBABLY BLAME DEMOCRATS -- BUT DOES IT REALLY MATTER? (updated)

A government shutdown is imminent, the blame game has started, and a lot of liberals and Democrats are angrily insisting that no reasonable person could possibly blame anyone other than the Republicans for what's happening -- Republicans control the White House and both houses of Congress, the Republican president has signaled his support for a fix saving the Dreamers only to go back on his word, and Republicans have cynically used both the DACA and CHIP programs as bargaining chips. Those are the Democratic arguments, but I don't think the public will buy them. On the other hand, ... more »

Presentations on Korea and Okinawa at No Bases Conference

Hyun Lee and Will Griffin were on the Asia-Pacific Pivot panel that I moderated last weekend in Baltimore at the No Bases conference. They both did an excellent job of sharing stories about the active resistance in South Korea and Okinawa against existing US bases.

North Korea is used as the foil to excuse this massive Pentagon expansion. Bruce

Schopenhauer On Dialectic and Logic

Anoop Verma at The Verma Report - 18 hours ago
Arthur SchopenhauerIn his essay, “The Art of Controversy,” Arthur Schopenhauer says that the word “dialectic” was first used by Plato. By “dialectic,” Plato means the regular employment of the reason, and skill in the practice of it. Aristotle has used “dialectic,” as well as “logic” in the same sense.

He credits Immanuel Kant for using the word “dialectic” in a bad sense for the first time. Here’s an e... more »
