          How Bernie Sanders Should Talk About Democratic Socialism
    
          October 21, 2015
    
          The discussion of democratic socialism should embrace our own American radical tradition. There’s nothing wrong with Denmark; we can learn a few things from them (and vice-versa). But we should talk first of all about our radical forebears here in the United States, for the most successful radicals have always spoken the language of American society and appealed to some of its deepest values.

          Paul Ryan Is a Hypocrite, Charlatan, and Right-Wing Extremist
    
          October 23, 2015
    
          In any rational look at the spectrum of American political views, it is hard to imagine attaching the words "moderate" or "moderate conservative" to Ryan on any issue except perhaps his clothing preferences and his haircut. Hardly a "policy wonk," Ryan is simply a right-wing politician with strong convictions but few real facts to back them up.

          Inoculating Against Science Denial
    
          October 23, 2015
    
          Ironically, throwing more science at science denial ignores the social science research into denial. You can’t adequately address science denial without considering the root cause: the ideology driving the rejection. The way to inoculate people against anti-scientific myths is to explain the fallacy employed by the myth. Once people understand the techniques used to distort the science, they can reconcile the myth with the fact.

          Where to look
    
          October 23, 2015
    
          The UK poet Jane Spiro, a seasoned traveler and keen observer, reminds us that pleasure, wisdom and all good things depend on knowing "where to look."
