'It Made America Look Like a Liar and Weak.'

Over in The New Yorker, David Remnick has a fascinating look at “Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently (R.B.S.S.), a kind of underground journalistic-activist enterprise that, under the threat of grisly execution, smuggles images and reports...Show More Summary

A Clash of Our Own

For decades now, I’ve written about clashes of pieties — pieties on the left. For example, you love, love wind power. But the killing of rare birds by the turbines? Um … You love, love abortion — or at least “abortion rights.” But when...Show More Summary
