    Life in Africa’s Last Colony

    For over 40 years, the people of Western Sahara have endured war and occupation—yet few outside of northern Africa have ever heard of them or their suffering. In 1975, their vast ­territory—some 100,000 square miles of desert bordering the Atlantic—was invaded by Morocco. Almost half of the traditionally nomadic Sahrawi population was driven into...

    What Just Happened?! A Review of President Trump’s Twelfth Week.

    “The real, the unique misfortune: to see the light of day,” wrote the dour Romanian philosopher Emil Cioran in his 1973 masterwork The Trouble With Being Born. “A disaster which dates back to aggressiveness, to the seed of expansion and rage within origins, to the tendency to the worst which first shook them up.” Cioran was writing about the...

    Lithuania Gears Up for War With Russia

    Donald Trump may admire Vladimir Putin, but Russia’s neighbors are readying for war. Over the past few years, the government of Lithuania has ramped up defense spending, begged NATO for troops, proposed building a fence along its border, and distributed detailed manuals briefing its three million citizens on what to do if Russia invades....

    What Just Happened?! A Review of President Trump’s Sixth Week.

    In his first work, On the Heights of Despair, the dour Romanian philosopher Emil Cioran wrote, “No matter which way we go, it is no better than any other. It is all the same whether you achieve something or not, have faith or not, just as it is all the same whether you cry or remain silent.” These words, no doubt, are comfort to President Donald...

    Donald Trump Is the Bizarro Noam Chomsky

    In her famous 1984 speech at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, diplomat Jeane Kirkpatrick, at the time America’s ambassador to the United Nations, characterized the Democrats as the party with the tendency to “blame America first.” The Democrats, according to Kirkpatrick, habitually criticized the foreign policy of the United...

    The West Isn’t Ready for a Revolution

    Ever since the wheels fell off of neoliberalism in 2008 and Barack Obama clinched the presidency, the West has grown increasingly dissatisfied with the way of the world—nowhere more than in the world’s richest nation. From Occupy and Bernie Sanders to the Tea Party and Donald Trump, many Americans across the political spectrum have called...

    Trump’s Foreign Policy Chaos

    In August 2014, Pope Francis warned a group of journalists that “we are in a world at war everywhere.” He recalled: “A man said to me, ‘Father, we are in World War III, but spread out in small pockets everywhere.’ He was right.” The pope’s conclusion was partly a reflection of the time. Because August 2014 marked one hundred years...

    A “New Cold War” Against Russia Is a Terrible Idea

    Donald Trump is often described as an unconventional politician, but there is at least one surprising way he’s following in the footsteps of his most recent predecessors. Both George W. Bush and Barack Obama began their presidencies with high hopes of improving U.S.-Russian relations. At a 2001 summit in Slovenia, Bush met with Vladimir...
