What Science Doesn't Tell Us About Free Speech

My latest Bloomberg View column responds to a very poorly thought-through justification for keeping some speakers from coming to campus. Can science, which has given us so many blessings, also help us settle disputes about free speech on campus? Lisa Feldman Barrett, a professor of psychology at Northeastern University, thinks so.

Personality vs. Party

Pretty much every day, I hear or see people arguing, shouting, screaming, or even threatening that all Republicans must give Donald Trump more or less unqualified support. Some very smart people even suggest that “sniping” at Donald Trump is out of bounds. Show More Summary

The Ten Most Popular Governors in the Country Are...

The Republican Governors Association cheerfully touts the good news that the ten most popular governors in the country are all members of the GOP, pointing to new numbers from Morning Consult polling. Of course, there’s this little detail: “Morning Consult surveyed 195,704 registered U.S. Show More Summary

Kicking the Obamacare Repeal Can Down the Road, One More Time

Quick Points on Health Care

Earlier this year, the Democrats had a taunt: that Republicans were like the dog that caught the car. Now what? The taunt turned out to be true. For a big change, you must marshal public support. You must rally the public, persuade the public. Show More Summary


With Mike Lee and Jerry Moran declaring their opposition, the latest Senate health-care bill is dead. McConnell now wants to revert to what was his original idea of repeal-only. The problem is that the CBO score will be much worse—aShow More Summary

Brexit, 'No Deal' and the Perturbation Multiplier

Game of Thrones Episode 1 - Are the Stark Men Still Stupid?
