“Bad Precedents” Are in the Eye of the Beholder
On September 28 the U.S. Senate voted to override President Obama’s veto of a bill permitting American citizens to sue foreign governments for any role in terrorist attacks.

The Restoration of African Americans’ Stolen Property
Every so often, the call for African-American reparations re-emerges in full force. The Atlantic author Ta-Nehisi Coates is perhaps the most prominent pundit to issue the call in recent years, pointing to America’s shameful history of slavery and segregation as grounds for restitution.

Attack the Powerful
Some of the reactions to my recent piece on Nancy Reagan (“Nancy Reagan’s Dark Legacy” 7 Mar 2016) seem to lose the forest through the trees.

Resistenza Dietro le Sbarre
Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggles of Incarcerated Women di Victoria Law Quando si parla di prigioni solitamente si pensa a detenuti uomini.

The Problem of Political Authority: An Examination of the Right to Coerce and the Duty to Obey, by Michael Huemer (Palgrave McMillan – 2012) Whether anarchy is good or not isn’t important.
