Today we feature a roundup of interesting articles from the Internet, under headings pertaining to Conservatives, to Progressives, and Physics (notably the quest for a Theory of Everything).
Angelo Codevilla has an important article on the Marxist background of political correctness and how it tends to undermine itself eventually. The Democratic Party Left’s attack on male sexual predation seems to be a case in point.
President Trump and Press Secretary Sanders call the 9th Circuit Court’s DACA ruling “outrageous.”
Retiring Republican Congressmen put the party’s control of the House at risk.
Google’s new “fact” checker checks many conservative sites and one token Progressive site.
At a public awards ceremony for Meryl Streep in New York last night, Robert de Niro launched into a stream of obscenities against President Trump.
“Must Dramatic Art Be Historically Accurate?” a National Review author asks. His answer (“No”) is well-argued, except for one significant detail that he omits: when the historical inaccuracies are used for an immediate partisan purpose, as in Progressive filmmaker Steven Spielberg’s “The Post.” That dishonesty certainly merits rebuke.
Are Progressives as peace-loving and tolerant as they profess? Nowadays the question almost answers itself. The American Psychiatric Association meanwhile has reaffirmed its support for the Goldwater Rule and called for an end to “arm chair psychiatry.”
The key quest in physics continues to be the quest for a Theory of Everything (ToE), or more specifically, a way to integrate gravity with quantum theory. A German theoretical physicist writes accessibly about a new-old approach she and her colleagues are working on.
