The Need For The People To Invoke Their Right To Amend or Rewrite The Constitution

"Some men look at constitutions with sanctimonious reverence, and deem them, like the ark of the covenant, too sacred to be touched. They ascribe to the men of the preceding age a wisdom more than human, and suppose what they did to be beyond amendment. I knew that age well: I belonged to it, and …

Thoughts On “The Media” and “Fake News”

At the dawn of 2019, what can we really say about "the media"? It is a thing that, like "the people", often embodies a meaningless abstraction to be used or abused as the powers that be see fit.

My Thoughts on What The Distant Future Can and Should Look Like

I’d have to co-opt a phrase by Marx when it comes to the future, “I do not have a crystal ball”. But if I had to speculate the kind of society that follows this one, I’d have to say that Marx’s prediction is probably not only the most likely, but also the most ideal. But …
