Asking who needs the humanities has too long been a rhetorical question. Humanists must stop dismissing a skeptical public and offer real, compelling arguments.
By engendendering the kind of illiberalism that it ascribes to all non-liberal positions, liberalism is fostering its own demise.
Cameron’s European policy is grounded in a fantasy that will never play out. Instead, the UK may be headed for collapse.
The UK is not an obstacle to harmony and stability. It is the EU integrationists who generate economic and democratic instability.
Cameron’s lack of activism nearly divided the United Kingdom. The 2017 referendum will present another crucial test – with consequences for the EU.
If we want to go from Little England back to being Great Britain, we must leave the EU. But it’s people like John Major and other fake Europhiles who keep us tied to a weak and crippling Union.
Ferguson shows what is needed: the rejection of both an identity politics based on anti-Western ressentiment and a shallow liberal multiculturalist tolerance.
Brown and Garner are but two names in a long list of black men and women who have perished at the hands of police. These are not personal issues or isolated incidents: they are tragic reflections of a deeply broken system.
Michael Brown's death was not just a tragedy, but also the final straw for a town fed up with racial discrimination by police. Rather than merely holding individual officers responsible, there needs to be a dramatic shift in police personnel to better reflect the diversity in our society.
The persistence of racial discrimination in America is only news to those of us who have never been on the receiving end. For many African-Americans and other minorities, it’s a pervasive reality.
The fact that more people are going to college is a big problem. What we need is more education alternatives and less college.
The rhetoric about rising student debt casts the spotlight on the wrong enemy.

Yanis Varoufakis dubbed himself an “erratic Marxist” and presented his interpretation of Marx in detail. But his dialectical spirit is unlikely to succeed.
We Europeans face a historic choice: either we further develop Europe as a single political entity, or we recede from the limelight.
After his overwhelming success, the big question is how good a diplomat Mr. Tsipras is.
This Sunday the Greek electorate will cast its vote hoping to elect a government that will take the country out of a crisis that has lasted too long, has cut too deep and has spread too far. The radical leftist party Syriza stands a good chance to win – in part because it is riding on the populist wave in Europe.
A failure to defend Ukraine’s sovereignty will feed the Kremlin’s appetite for military adventures and jeopardize the geostrategic stability of the European continent. Why are the EU's leaders unable to make a real stand against Putin?
Russia’s success in Ukraine is built not on strength but on camouflaging weaknesses. The fact that Western leaders are nevertheless shying away from intervening exposes their lack of military resolve.
Russia cannot be allowed to dictate what happens in eastern Ukraine, but Western diplomats need to realize that pressure alone will not lead Putin to give in.
