Tony Judt's Ill Fares the Land. And then his essay collections Reappraisals and When the Facts Change.

IFTL is a short overt polemic. You'll probably get more enjoyment from his essays though, as Judt had a vast and seemingly unending knowledge of European history and politic

The Iran Nuclear Deal
Politics & Religion

Can someone, ideally both proponents and opponents, please go over the arguments as to why the Trump administration is reneging on the framework and withdrawing from UNSC Resolution 2231?

Any possible reasoning as to why this is a good idea would be great.

I have 16 GB on the basis of futureproofing. No one app/game uses it all, but there's a few games which push it to 8GB. It's only a matter of time I suppose before RAM requirements get pushed past 8GB.

Avengers: Infinity War (no spoilers)

@Jet: glad I'm not the only one who stopped reading Marvel/DC for the reasons you cite. Moved on to other publishing houses as a result and never really looked back (although the occasional license foray breaks that up).

Although, in addition, for that reason, I haven't watched any MCU since Iron

Nongendered Scouts
Politics & Religion

Well, considering the vast majority of Scouting organisations outside the US (at least in the Commonwealth) are mixed gender, it'd only be joining a wider trend. The "Boy" was dropped in the late 1960s in the UK. The competition with Girl Scouts part is a bit weird though.

I enjoyed it when I did

Van ploughs into pedestrians in Toronto
Politics & Religion

The Dred Scott decision was also a function of an independent judiciary. The result was still unconscionable, anti human, and a sign that the state is participating in a great evil.

Ah yes, a decision in antebellum US, a completely different jurisdiction, 160 years old, in a Supreme Court that i

As we can't ask him, and as his parents are his guardians, legal or otherwise, and the ancient contract that binds parents to their children should never be broken lightly, it stands to reason that they are the only ones with a legitimate say in the matter. Just how do you reconcile the paradox of

There is absolutely no justification to dress that up in. The boy could have all the neurological activity of a root vegetable for all that's relevant to the injustice taking place here. That the government should assume the authority previously reserved for parents throughout all of the preceding

Germans to be a minority in Germany by 2060.

England in particular had been pretty successful in integrating newcomers into British culture. I'd like to see more of that, and less multiculturalism / refugee camps / communities that are entirely their country of origin and stay that way for generations.

Certain cultures are more receptive t

This hand wave of wait lists rings hollow. Wait lists exist in single payer schemes, as do effective death panels. After all, the British government apparently has the authority to determine whether or not a child will remain on life support regardless of the wishes of his parents.

a high-quality show in general, maybe a bit like how adults will watch adventure time or dbz.

DBZ is a 90s shonen that has not aged well beyond a retro love for a 90s animation aesthetic ("y won't DBS look like DBZ in the 90s when it was good?!"). Upon rewatching as an adult in this context, it

Romans got a bit degen and multiculti in the end.

Romans were degen and multiculti from the beginning, by modern, post-Christianity standards.

Rather the public works, civic efficiency and culture of Rome than some irredeemable Puritan society.

When the Romans conquered Judea, they though

Who is pushing for Syrian intervention ?
Politics & Religion

We don’t have to limit our support to just moderate groups, but it’s important to remember that they do exist and not to let ourselves be bogged down by our own anti-islamic prejudices.

It isn't anti-Islamic "prejudice"; it's objective and observable policy trends. All evidence shows that fu

Who is pushing for Syrian intervention ?

Much different answer than there "no moderate fighters".

Semantics. There are no viable moderate groups to support. This is not conditional on every single person holding "moderate" views which is clearly an impossible and immeasurable metric.

Either way, it's clear that they can combat Ass

Removing Assad by arming rebels and allowing them to remove him was only possible prior to Russian involvement, you mean.

He can still be killed.

If we had armed rebels and saw the ouster of Assad, we'd be looking at another Libya with multiple competing transitional governments claiming leg

Who is pushing for Syrian intervention ?
Politics & Religion

I agree that the label "moderate" arose out of political branding, but to say that they don't exist at all, and thus imply there are only radical Islamist fighters fighting against Assad is not only wrong, but in fact exactly the kind of misinformation Assad and Russia have been playing at since th

Politics & Religion

It's certainly true, though, that the secular moderate fighters are on the government's side. And they, certainly, can't all like Assad, since the majority are conscripts, but fear Islamic extremists coming into Alawite territory and Damascus proper to take revenge. We should make it very clear tha
