Arguments Against School Choice Presume We Have Options The Center - “In short, if public schooling on average is so woefully inadequate, how can we take seriously the argument that if a family cannot afford or otherwise access private or home schooling, public schooling is a perfectly sufficient choice?” Dixie Dillon Lane 2/3/2023
Stop Pretending All Cultures Are the Same The Left - “So I will say it with my heart, and others should too: If a culture persecutes LGBT people, is overtly racist, or makes women second class citizens, then to hell with that culture. My culture is better than that one.” Johan Pregmo 1/27/2023
The Value in Reading Byung-Chul Han The Right - “Han occupies a somewhat unique position in today’s world that defies typical Right-Left categorization. This is partly because of Han’s bridging of multiple worlds: East and West; art and philosophy; theology and politics.” Josh Pauling 1/22/2023
The Case for Retiring “Confederate Heroes Day” The Left - “As we come to know more about the morally repulsive aspects of our national history—and, more importantly, face those realities—removing symbols of our collective failure in the past is not an attempt to deny our history. Rather, it is a sign of growth, a willingness to face our history.” Robert Jensen 1/19/2023
Multiculturalism Is Madness The Right - “The fact is that, historically, Great Britain has had a remarkably stable demographic makeup for at least a thousand years, if not much longer.

We Are All Socialists The Right - “Echoing this notion from on high, in 2016 the [World Economic Forum] announced the imminence of a post-historical future in the Marxist sense: ‘Welcome to 2030. I own nothing, have no privacy, and life has never been better.'” Michael Weyns 12/21/2022
What Is a Human? The Center - “In fact, heterosexuality and the male-female binary can be observed across countless species. The onus of proof, therefore, is on those who claim that we are an exception.” Gerfried Ambrosch 12/21/2022
Work Is About Knowledge That Pays and Relationships That Are Priceless The Center - “And both wages and relationships advance worker opportunity, the essential elements of which are what individuals know (i.e., profitable knowledge) and whom they know (i.e., priceless relationships).” Bruno V. Manno 12/15/2022
The Boredom of War The Right - “Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s biggest enemy is not the West’s reticence to sending more drones, more weapons, and more fighter jets. President Zelenskyy’s biggest enemy is boredom.” Brian Patrick Bolger 12/12/2022
Mary Harrington: On a Philosophy of Limits The Right - “And my argument is that freedom and progress in the context of the cyborg era are actually inimical to women’s interests. They don’t make things better for any women, except [for] a very small, elite subset.” Henry George 12/7/2022
Abortion and the Mythic Mother Personal Essay - “They do not realize good mothering comes from fearlessness. Few things promote more fear than being deprived of control of one’s own body.” Melissa Knox 12/5/2022
