Biden should ditch these flawed assumptions about North Korea

Every United States president over the last 30 years has entered the White House thinking they will be the one to finally solve the North Korean nuclear problem. And without fail, every U.S. president during this same time frame has left office with the problem more deeply entrenched. The trend is likely to continue if President Joe Biden doesn’t endorse a dramatic break in the conventional orthodoxy. Many of the Biden administration’s top foreign policy officials have first-hand experience deal...

"The Capitol complex is a place where Americans can go to watch their representatives, to speak with those representatives, to petition for the redress of grievances."

"The building and its grounds also are part of the fabric of the city. Streams of bikers pass through on morning and evening commutes. Tourists gather for concerts on the lawn. When it snows, the front face of Capitol Hill becomes a popular sledding spot, with neighborhood children sometimes transforming discarded protest signs into makeshift sleds. This is not just an amenity for neighbors and visitors. It is the tangible manifestation of the idea that the government is a part of American life,...

The politics and tradeoffs of California’s lockdowns

It would be helpful if people stopped categorizing each other into “believers” and “deniers.” The argument about the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has never been a dispute over the existence of the disease or its potential severity. The question is what to do about it. For example, it’s a good idea to wash your hands, but it’s a bad idea to plunge them into boiling water. People who resist plunging their hands into boiling water are not “deniers.” They’re simply aware of the ful...
