A new issue of Cinema: Journal of Philosophy and the Moving Image is out. From the Independent Review, Robert H. Nelson (Maryland): Economics and Environmentalism: Belief Systems at Odds; and a review of Mind vs. Money: The War Between Intellectuals and Capitalism by Alan S. Kahan. Abandoning the Constitution: All is not well within the administrative state — it seems that all modern bureaucratic governments are faced with the paradox of being less able to govern, the more completely they try to administer the social and economic details of life in society. Constitutionalists vs. Confederates: When the Justices hand down their ruling, it will be a decisive moment in a debate stretching back to the Articles of Confederation and the nation's founding. American Nietzsche: Corey Robin on Justice Scalia, Diva of Disdain. The real standard-bearer of Republican discourse in the past decade, he has turned juvenile, impish, and wounded — in short, he is Big Baby. Bill Berkowitz on HeavenUp, a Christian competitor for Facebook. Playing to win at Latin tag: Felipe Fernandez-Armesto is only fleetingly charmed by traditional shout-lines.
