  • 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

    CountyPaytoPlay

    Next week the racketeering trial of Joe Ferriero, the former Chairman of the Bergen County Democratic Organization begins. The antics of Mr. Ferriero, who the New York Times portrayed as a modern day Boss Tweed, is the reason I became a political blogger in New Jersey in the first place. Next week, the biggest rock …

  • Avalon at Edgewater – The Politics of Fire

    Fire

    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.

    As the former council liaison to the Tenafly Fire Department, I have a soft spot in my heart for firefighters and I feel that the type of construction used at the …

  • 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 …

  • Bridgegate Update: Meltdown

    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 …

  • Ferguson: Why Racism is Still a National Disgrace

    I wrote this before the Garner decision. As I publish this, NYC is overwhelmed with Christmas lights, and protestors over the latest unfathomable Grand Jury decision over the homicide of Eric Garner, father of six.  I watched the video of his death last night and I began to count how many times he said he…

  • “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 …

  • (The Current) Blame Game: Recalls & Craigslist

    Earlier this week, an ABC News reporter ambushed the owner/founder of Craigslist regarding the illegal sale of recalled items currently listed on the site. The man was clearly caught off guard and did not even have a chance to really respond other than to say that he was no longer involved in the day-to-day business …

  • 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 …
