Most of the subscribers to Harvard Magazine are alumni of Harvard University, a vast body of elite liberals, many of whom work for liberal causes, and some of whom, including a former president of Harvard, work or have worked in the Obama administration. Let us not forget that Obama himself is a Harvard alumnus. Yes, there are some conservatives among the Harvard alumni, which does not detract from the well-known fact that Harvard is a very liberal institution, deriving its political liberalism from its Unitarian philosophical foundation.
With no immediate end in sight to the sociopolitical conflict in Libya, numerous higher-ups of the Obama administration have hinted that the United States may need to intervene, whether directly or under the umbrella of NATO or the United Nations.
A plethora of books have appeared the past few years seeking to explain the economic crisis that shook the industrialized world in 2008, but few have dealt extensively with the impact of that crisis that emerged even earlier — in 2006 — in the tiny nation of Iceland. For those who have only a passing familiarity with the development of the 2008 collapse, this might not seem to be all that much of a shortcoming: To state the matter crassly, why worry about a nation with a population of a mere 300,000 citizens, when 300 million Americans were wrapped up in their own financial worries?
When you hear that a movie theater was fined $80,000 dollars for discrimination, you might wonder if it refused to hire blacks or promote women. But this wasn’t the case with the Carmike 14 cinema, in Dover, Delaware. What was its Bull Connor moment?
Matt Damon’s newest film, The Adjustment Bureau, questions the basis and validity of free will. Is man’s destiny truly in his own hands, or is his destiny in the hands of a higher power (God)? Is it one or the other — or both? The film also emphasizes the issues of sacrifice and liberty (but what is liberty — does it include trying to evade God’s plans for you?), marking it as yet another hit film to add to Damon’s lengthy roster.
For the past 15 years my efforts against Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development have been single-minded — get the message out to tell people about what it is and why it is dangerous to our way of life. All of our materials, special reports, hand outs, speeches, radio and television interviews, and DVDs have been created for that purpose.
Many atheists will tell you that they would believe in the existence of God if only He would perform a miracle that they could see before their own eyes. Then, and only then, would they believe that God exists. But until then, they will believe in evolution as the way in which all of living matter came into being.
If you watched the Oscar awards as I did, you might have been awed by this assemblage of the world’s most talented actors, film directors, producers, cinematographers, set and costume designers, story tellers, composers, creators of special effects all concentrated in a small area of Southern California known as Hollywood. The impact this cultural powerhouse has on the rest of the world is what has made America the magnet for the talented and ambitious.
As we all know, Bill Gates and his wife Melinda have established a charitable foundation that will spend billions of dollars trying to improve American education. But despite all their good intentions, they will fail. Why? Because they really don’t understand why American education is failing so miserably.
“A video of Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) screening passengers at a Savannah, Georgia Amtrak station has been gaining quite a bit of attention,” burbles the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) blog.
