Why “Us Against Them” Politics Is More Dangerous Than ISIS | Sebastian Junger

I think everything we do is a form of tribalism. We’re evolved for that. We’re wired for that. The question is how big do we want our tribe to be? England seems to be saying we want our tribe and at our choice. All right so that’s a point of view I understand. So it’s

The Politics of Racist Immigration Policy, with Junot Diaz

August 17, 2019 at 6:26 pm | Articles, Blog | Colt Stanton -

Immigration in the 2016 election is playing out the way immigration seems to always play out during these battles. It’s being used as a fear wedge issue.

Translator: Milena Tomol Reviewer: Claire Ghyselen I took a cell phone and accidentally made myself famous. (Laughter) I was just talking about the things I cared about, but with a click of a button and an incendiary viral video, I propelled myself into overnight stardom.

Albert Mohler on How Politics Are ‘Downstream’ from Culture

August 7, 2019 at 6:24 pm | Articles, Blog | Colt Stanton -

– [Albert Mohler] You know, that’s an interesting question because, in one sense, the obvious answer is yes. The culture determines the politics. I think that’s the big equation.
