Kurds Acknowledge the Armenian Genocide and Their Role In It

The hundredth anniversary of the Armenian genocide caused many world leaders to blink, notably President Barack Obama, who abandoned his old campaign promises--and fiery criticism of the Bush administration--by refusing to acknowledge it.

Earth Day and the Sustainable Resource Of Guilt

On Earth Day, it's remarkable how much Green energy (of the political variety) has been pumped into the climate change movement. It gives people an easy way to assume intellectual superiority with virtually zero effort. It's the eternal crusade, the insoluble problem, the hypothesis that can never be falsified, so it provides sustainable fuel for countless rallies and political power grabs.
