Crazy is as Crazy Does

OPINION: We all know someone who is not quite “all there.” The normal human connections with the world are missing, twisted, or distorted.

‘The Righteous Mind’ by Jonathan Haidt

Book Review: ‘The Righteous Mind’ by Jonathan Haidt

REVIEW: Jonathan Haidt grabs onto the twin time-bombs of American punditry, politics and religion, and does so from an amazingly optimistic point-of-view. He combines his sunny disposition with a bit of psychology and a ton of research. Unfortunately, there are too many GOP-inspired missteps in an otherwise interesting book. You have to admire Jonathan Haidt […]

We Deceive. You Believe. FOX.

Book Review: ‘The Fox Effect’ by David Brock and Ari Rabin-Havt

REVIEW: A fact-packed and smoothly written work, “The Fox Effect” demonstrates how Fox News chairman Roger Ailes operates from the Joseph Goebbels playbook by running an anti-informational distortion network over the public airwaves. The book is extremely valuable, but those with weak stomachs may be disturbed. There is a breathless writing style to The Fox […]
