When young people ‘get it’

Cosmopolitan blogger Rebecca Rose is enamored with the story of five-year-old Yasmeen, who procrastinated on her homework recently by writing a short letter to President Obama. From the post: "Please stop war for our world, instead have a meeting," Yasmeen wrote.

Deconstructing the deconstructionists

Liberalism is a smiley-faced demolition project – in a purely positive, hopey-changey sense of the word “demolition,” that is. Since the innumerable “social constructs” that litter the highway of history are impediments to human progress, the time has come to clear them out of the way. Margaret Mead taught us that patriarchy was a social construct. According to moral relativists, right and [...]

Defining disorder

Light is Right Joe Campbell When she revealed that she was carrying twins, her next-door neighbour suggested an ultrasound to determine their sex. “Ultrasounds don’t determine sex,” she replied. “Of, course,” the neighbor declared, “I should have said ‘discover.’”  But the clarification didn’t help.
