Here is what it means to live under the Constitution, post-9/11 and in the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic.

The 20-Year Journey From 9/11 To COVID-19 and the Freedoms Lost Along the Way

You can map the nearly 20-year journey from the 9/11 attacks to the COVID-19 pandemic by the freedoms we’ve lost along the way.

Biden Urged to Adopt a Good Neighbor Policy Toward Latin America

Election season is a difficult time to develop good policies towards Latin America, since both Democrats and Republicans cater to the small, but organized, conservative factions of the Latinx community in Florida, vying for their votes.

John Pilger: The Stalinist Trial of Julian Assange

Lee Camp: How News of a Cure for Cancer Got Lost in Our Nightly Political Theater

Donald Trump speeches. Celebrity tweets. Corporate news repetition. Chaos. Vapidity. Manufactured dissent. Graphic fighting sports. This is what fills our field of vision.
