  • Bridgegate: Payback

    The infamous 3 lanes.

    Mean

    Having followed the Bridgegate scandal before it was even called that, even I was taken aback by the allegations by David Wildstein that the date of the traffic jam was to coincide with the first day of school to maximize the impact. How mean could someone get?

    “Punch to the Gut”

     The fact …

  • Why the Armenian Genocide Matters!

    For a moment, try to imagine an unpleasant scenario: The German nation, tired of acting humble and tied of expressing guilt for the crimes of its grandparents, decides to free itself from the burden of the past. The Holocaust is methodically re-labelled as an ‘act of war’, the deaths of six millions Jews will now …

  • WikiLeaks: Losing Its Religion

    Whether you like them or hate them, WikiLeaks stood for something important – after publishing the stolen Sony emails they have shown that this is no longer the case.

    WikiLeaks operate from a fairly simple business model: rather than primarily pursuing their own material, WikiLeaks has presented itself as a central hub for global information …

  • The Ferriero Guilty Verdict: It’s Complicated

    CountyPaytoPlay

    Complicated

    Yesterday, when the jury in the racketeering trial of Joe Ferriero emerged from 4 days of deliberations after an eight week trial with a mixed verdict, the jury foreman said it was difficult to follow the complicated case without a paper and pencil. I totally understand. A few years back, when Ferriero was …

  • Our Failure to Think Morally about Radicalisation

    British society might just have woken up to the wolves at their door – an awakening that we can only hope spreads to Australia.

    The recent unmasking of the Islamic State fighter, dubbed by the media as ‘Jihadi John’, was met with a hitherto unseen wave of public disgust and outrage. This was not a …

  • Sympathising with Monsters – The David Hicks Case

    It is a strange moment when you begin to feel compassion for someone whom you otherwise consider to be a moral monster. We ordinarily prefer our moral decision-making to be a fairly easy and straightforward process, yet such moments make this impossible. This is certainly the case when it comes to considering the now-exonerated, former …

  • Science. It Doesn’t Mean What They Think it Means

    Science

    Political Science

    An awful lot of political science majors are throwing around the word science a little too loosely these days. As if they somehow own it.

    Perspective

    I was a scientist. With the lab coat and the laboratory notebook, the whole deal. I was designing and carrying out experiments and such. I know intimately …

  • Tony Abbott – A Terrible Week

    Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott began this week under attack from his own political party. To try and assuage those Liberal members who wanted him removed, he presented himself as a “chastened” man: “I’ve listened, I’ve learned and I’ve changed”. As this week comes to an end, very few of his colleagues are likely to …

  • The Climate of Moral Responsibility

    Imagine yourself as a murderer: as someone who, both unprovoked, and with foresight, has just brutally killed your neighbour. There ought to be little doubt as to what moral responsibility you bear for this crime. Anything short of turning yourself into the police, admitting guilt, and accepting a criminal punishment that corresponds to the severity …

  • Ferriero Trial:  Break out the Popcorn

    Updated April 16, 2015 – Joe Ferriero was found guilty on racketeering, bribery related charges and wire fraud today after four days of jury deliberations.  It was a confusing trial for the jury  – they probably could have used my handy dandy chart, but they figured it out.  I should have a more substantial blog …

    Preventable Tragedy

    As an engineer and former fire commissioner, I was appalled at the way the Edgewater tragedy unfolded, even if I wasn’t surprised.

  • Putting Shin Dong-hyuk’s Lies into Context

    Whilst in graduate school I was searching for a dissertation topic to which I would commit my foreseeable future and longer-term academic career. North Korea was the area that immediately appealed to me. I had previously lived in South Korea, and had for some time been steadily, though quite unconsciously, devouring the prominent works on …

  • On the NJ Waterfront: Taking Liberty

    Statue of Liberty taken 2014 at sunset from the AJ Meerwald.

    “On The Waterfront”

    I learned a lot about the old days “On the Waterfront” in NJ from friends who helped create the Hudson River Waterfront Conservancy, tasked with implementing the famous 18 mile Hudson River Walkway. That history is instructive. To anyone with even a passing knowledge of Hudson County politics – the pinnacle …

  • Another Day, Another Nutrition “Study”

    BREAD

    Sigh. The headlines last week were filled with talk of how the latest study showed that eating low glycemic index (GI) foods, which don’t raise blood sugar levels quickly, rather than high glycemic foods, had no effect on health. A critical look at the way the study was conceived, planned and analyzed is necessary here. …

  • Loyalty: What It Really Is–and What It Absolutely Isn’t

    Growing up, I was taught that loyalty, like love and respect, was something that you gave unconditionally to your family–and good friends–without question; it was understood to be an integral part of just being a good relative or friend. For instance, if someone bad-mouthed your brother, or treated your best friend with disrespect, you stood …

  • THE RISE OF CHINESE HUMANITARIANISM

    In 1859 the soon to be patriarch of humanitarianism, Jean-Henri Dunant, watched on as Emperor Franz Josef of Austria and Emperor Napoleon III of France fought the Battle of Solferino. The fighting lasted only a single day, and as the battlefield quietened Dunant descended from his vantage point overlooking the town in order to document …

    The infamous 3 lanes.

    Ever since I was transfixed listening to what would be called Bridgegate testimony a year ago nearly to the day, the day that Governor Chris Christie deleted texts between himself and his aide Regina Egea, I have been following Bridgegate, live tweeting the hearings, reading everything I could get my hands on, and watching every …

  • “Band of Brothers” Phenomena in Toxic Families

    Recently, I was talking to someone about how growing up in a dysfunctional/abusive/neglectful family created relationships between the siblings similar to those bonds forged in wartime between soldiers on the battlefield.

    I know that in my situation, being the oldest with three younger brothers, I felt an acute sense of responsibility to make sure that …
