1. The People’s Court of New Normal Germany

Just when I thought things could not possibly get more shockingly totalitarian in New Normal Germany, where I'm being prosecuted in criminal court (for the second time) for tweeting, the German authorities have gone and surprised me again. No, they haven't established an actual Nazi-style People's Court (pictured above) yet, and, of course, there is …

2. A Time of Shame and Sorrow: When It Comes to Political Violence, We All Lose

"Whenever any American's life is taken by another American unnecessarily—whether it is done in the name of the law or in the defiance of law, by one man or a gang, in cold blood or in passion, in an attack of violence or in response to violence—whenever we tear at the fabric of life which …

5. The Turn of the Screw

Remember when you were a kid and saw "thumbscrew torture" for the first time in some late-night horror film? It was the coolest. To inflict so much pain with so little effort—just a tiny turn of the screw and intense wailing would ensue. How cool was that?—horrifying as well. Although using thumbscrews in the fine …

8. The Civil War Simulation

It has been slouching toward Bethlehem for the last eight years. The gyre has been widening, the falcon turning and turning, the center losing hold, and so on. Its hour has not quite come round yet, but something is definitely rising out of Spiritus Mundi. No, not the beast from The Second Coming, but something perhaps just …
