  • Conversation About America: The Faux G.O.P.'s Assault on the Values that Define Us

    by Thomas I. White
    The election of Donald Trump was not some once-in-a-lifetime aberration produced by bad luck, poor judgment and James Comey.

In the last few hundred years, evil elements of the human mind have become dominant. An evolutionary development is unfolding as we li... more
