A year ago and a half ago, an infamous 5-4 US Supreme Court decision (The Kelo v. New London, Conn.) upheld a municipality's right to use eminent domain to take private property for redevelopment by a private, profit-making concern.

Saddam Hussein's Execution
by Edward Hudgins
Saddam Hussein is deservedly dead, hanged as the heinous criminal he was. But the process by which justice was administered was disappointing and highlights the wide gap in values between Iraq’s culture and that of any civilized country.

For those who may still be in doubt about who the enemy within America's borders is, this website is a good place to start learning.
Here are a few other choice tidbits that should turn anyone's stomach, describing the 'sensitivity training' openly advocated by military commanders.

Several media critics recently have claimed that the new Casino Royale is the -best- of the James Bond movies and that claim has been repeated by a number of Objectivists.

While part of me is beginning to believe that not even BUSH would be stupid enough to fully reinstate it...part of me also believes that Nixon wasn't totally serious about ending it either.
Remember- when government is actually serious about doing anything, they take every major precaution to push in that direction.

It's the first Objectivist rant on New Zealand radio, by a young Linz, in 1983. It was supposed to be part of a regular series featuring known presenters expressing the opinions which they normally hid. After this broadcast, the series was abandoned. We wonder why.

Proving once again that (while imperfect) the U.S. is not nearly so insane as some others around the globe, we have the Indian and European reactions to the Iraqi court's upholding of the verdict against Saddam Hussein.

Earlier this year, I inquired as to whether any fellow SOLOists had any experience learning with the Harkness method, the extraordinary educational method that I've been working under for this school year. Shortly after that, I started delving into just what it is that makes a class like this effective.

A UCLA lecturer and his co-writer join the lunatic viro brigade by castigating 'excessive' use of electric lights.
The authors claim, among other gems that: "Light is a drug, and our 24-hour society abuses it. Humans produce the hormone melatonin in the dark. Without darkness, production is diminished. This partially explains the greater incidence of breast cancer in women who work the night shift and never sleep in complete darkness."

An editorial in the New York Times by Stanley Fish shows just how far gone some really are. To this oily virus, even free speech is just "an abstract principle."
(Though the Danish cartoon story is now dated, the principle is fresh... and an occasional reminder of what's at stake is helpful. Hat tip to Robert Tracinski for including this in his Top Stories of 2006.)
