by John W. Whitehead.  “Don’t Be a Puppet” is the message the FBI is sending young Americans.

The Next Front In The War On Religious Freedom

by David Harsanyi.        Stop bellyaching about Washington. All the country's best fascists are on your local city council. Not long ago, Colorado became a leader in the fight against religious freedom, when its Civil Rights Commission, self-appointed ministers of justice and theology, decided that a shopkeeper who refuses to participate in a gay ...

Victor Volsky: Obeying The Dog Whistle

Focus on the young, not the mind-numbed zombies.       In George Orwell's immortal dystopia Animal Farm, the ruling pigs distilled the revolutionary ideology for the stupider animals, such as the sheep, hens and ducks, to a simplistic but highly useful slogan, "Four legs good, two legs bad". Not only did it explain to the dumb masses the     ... MORE

Jacob Sullum: The Devil In Rudy Eugene

Society's readiness to believe in satanic substances. Casting about for a reason why Rudy Eugene gnawed off most of a homeless man's face in an unprovoked attack on Miami's MacArthur Causeway last month, his girlfriend suggested he may have been the victim of a voodoo curse. Or maybe he was drugged, she told The Miami  ... MORE
