The inaugural issue of the International Journal of Dharma Studies is out. Jeremy Wisnewski (Hartwick): Violence, Terrorism, and Corporate Colonialism: Or, Better Ways to Spend Time at Wal-Mart (“on the permissibility of anti-corporate sabotage”). From Public Seminar, Eli Zaretsky on the War on Fascism. From New York, Frank Rich on the National Circus: Obama won the Obamacare War, but the GOP won’t concede; and Bradley Cooper did not save Obamacare. Jonathan Cohn on why it's OK to feel good about Obamacare again — it was worth it, probably. Will the haters ever stop hating? If you can't complain about how no one wants Obamacare, complain there are long lines to get it, plus communism — you can't lose! Mark Strauss on what the GOP's war on science looks like. Archaeologists and historians come out on top in a battle against The National Geographic Channel. Predicting the future of your marriage, algorithmically: The creators of the dating website OK Cupid claim that an algorithm based on the answers to three apparently daft questions (“Do you like horror movies?” “Have you ever travelled around another country alone?” and “Wouldn’t it be fun to chuck it all and go live on a sailboat?”) are predictive of whether a couple will stay together. Supreme Court’s abomination: Paul Campos on how the McCutcheon decision will destroy American politics. Billionaire politics is here to stay.
