How a Democracy Can Implode Teri Schure  May 28, 2017               In 2000 the American think-tank Freedom House, classified 120 countries, or 63% of the world total, as democracies. Back then it seemed as though democracy would dominate the world.   But a lot has changed since then. And the biggest challenge to democracy comes from the voters themselves.

Are Libertarians For Real?

Latest By:  @johnrussell, 2 months ago

I would like to see a discussion based on this premise-   Libertarianism is an impractical governing philosophy.   I have a couple other questions .   What is the basis for ownership of private property , absent a governing body? Let say you "own" a house by a nice lake. You leave to go on a vacation 500 miles away. While you are gone I come to the location of your lake house, and move in, taking "ownership" of it. Now what?

So... we know that Donald Trump says and does stuff that is crazy. Bad for Americans and everyone else in the world. Irrational.  But even irrational acts have motives... so what is Donald Trump's source of motivation. He blusters. He shouts down anyone who disagrees with him. He is constantly trying to prove how tough he is... but his method for proving it is reminiscent of little boys on a playground, emulating their heroes. They strut like roosters. They almost crow like...

Driving your first car again for a day - a wish and a dream My first car was a 1950 Ford Custom Coach that I drove when I was 16 and 17 years old.  It looked like this, save that it was beige with a brown top: That's the manual 3-speed gearshift mounted on the steering column.  Note that the radio is A.M. only with five manual push-buttons that could be set on specific stations. The radio dial on the left was on/off/volume and the one on the right was to move back and...

A Young Pear Tree Brings Comfort to Grieving Children By Neil Willenson, Huffington Post, May 30 2015 Finding the right words to comfort dozens of crying children can be a challenge.
