  • Justified? My Thoughts on Ferguson

    I’ve been thinking more and more about the situation in Ferguson lately. Being a native Missourian, married to a black man, and having been treated poorly by the police in the past myself, I’ve had a lot to ponder.

    Based on what I’ve seen and heard–which, I assume, is basically what everyone else has seen …

  • Curing Ebola with Thomas Pogge

    For all the harm that has been caused, and for all the harm that it is still likely to be caused in the near future, the current Ebola pandemic in Western Africa is merely a symptom of a much larger structural injustice concerning the global manufacture of pharmaceuticals – For this, Thomas Pogge has a …

  • Election 2014 – Apathy Won

    Everyone Has an Opinion

    In the US, midterm elections are a strange event.  It is usually when the party in power loses some.  This year was no exception. The Democrats lost control of the Senate.  Why this occurred kept pundits busy for a quite a few days, and naturally everyone had a different opinion as …

  • The Inequality Fallacy behind the G20 Protests

    For a mental image that instinctively breeds mistrust, imagine the twenty most powerful businessmen and women of a small town holding a behind-closed-doors meeting in order to facilitate better economic and political control over the already dominated population. Despite the professed altruism behind some of the closeted discussions, this scenario is an accurate microcosm for …

  • Fear of Offense: Pakistan’s Blasphemy Laws

    “Falsely shouting ‘fire’ in a crowded theatre!” was the example offered by Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. when pushed to explain what a permissible restriction upon freedom of speech might look like. Holmes was using the metaphor rather tenuously as a means to justify the suppression of opposition to the military draft in the United States’ …

  • Friends Without Benefits: The US-Turkish Alliance

    At a time when humanitarian intervention was developing into a normative standard above and beyond a legal principle, highlighted by the “illegal but legitimate” intervention in Kosovo, Turkey was afforded a privileged position of international immunity. While behaving in a manner that ordinarily ought to have defined itself as an outlier nation and a candidate …

  • The Academic Starvation of North Korean Scholars

    The recent absence of Kim Jong Un from the North Korean political landscape shows just how starved for substance academics are on this subject.

    Following a 40 day hiatus, Kim Jong Un, though supported by a cane, strolled back into public life earlier this week in a carefully orchestrated media event. For a regime and …

  • Political Sleepwalking

    Currently, the Australian Government is easy to criticise. But then again, what government is not? To hold any elevated position of power necessarily means to invite elevated levels of criticism.

    Whereas from opposition, a change of policy, a failure of ideological consistency, or a disregard for the majority public opinion more-often-than-not leaves no discernible political …

    A Dream Ending

    This summer, during our annual trip on NJ’s official tall ship the A.J Meerwald, we passed the Statue of Liberty at sunset.  This year, I thought I saw her weeping.  As the beautiful day drew to a close behind her amazing silhouette, it seemed that the day of welcoming those huddled masses …

  • THE RISE OF KURDISTAN

    On par with the shock value of racism, one of the most immediately apparent public faux pas today is an expressed retroactive support for the 2003 Iraq war. With all that hindsight offers, such a position appears thoroughly incomprehensible to the point that it appears to indicate a moral failing on behalf of the …

  • Ebola on My Mind

    The Fear Factor

    It is hard to escape the news these days. What is scarier than a religious extremist with a sadistic streak, a knife fetish, and lots of stolen Iraqi weapons? An enemy you can’t see that could be infecting your family member or neighbor, right this very minute. Ebola. Fear of it has …

  • Climate Change: A NJ Stormwater Engineer’s Perspective

    The calm before the storm.

    The March

    This week as I watched the march in NYC, I was filled with hope that at last people were hearing the dire warnings of climate scientists.  For the past few years, climate scientists and stormwater engineers like me were suffering from Chicken Little complex. The sky, laden with CO2 and methane, was literally …

    A Race for the Ages

    NJ’s 5th District Congressional race is catching national attention. I actually think of it as the Milennial vs. the Dinosaur race.  The youth vote may be pivotal here.  32 year old Democrat Roy Cho is challenging Tea Party elder Scott Garrett for what had been a safely Republican seat for …
