This was the most important election of 2017.

Wingnuts use fake word definitions as camouflage.

The India-China rivalry presents a risk of nuclear war.

The Alt-Right's fetish for weapons and violence reflects primitive primate instincts.

The internet's maddening ad infestation may be self-destructing.

Keep an eye on Bannon.

Fake alien-encounter stories are trite and boring.

When is secession justified?

Groupthink plays into the hands of the enemy.

I discuss morality with Daniel Wilcox.

Darkness inspires a meditation.

The revolt against sexual harassment is a defining moment in US politics.

I assess the lessons of Alabama.

If the Republicans realize they're doomed, they may become more dangerous than ever.
