A collection of articles from David Brin on the issues, elections, economics and politics of our day. Here you'll find essays about:
*Can a small transaction fee save Wall Street?
* How to simplify our tax system non-politically using a computer program and a simple boundary condition.
* Is there a difference between a global warming "skeptic" who has questions about the science and a "denialist" who spouts the same delaying tactics used by Big Tobacco, in the 1980s?
* In 1947 Democrats purged themselves of fanatical fringe loonies and saved their party. Are Republicans capable of similar courage and will? There is a precedent!
Let us strive for a return to the pragmatic, scientific, can-do-eager nation that was so admired. That deserved to lead the world.
