Why Are Men So Afraid of Women?

Dear Madam President, a book by Hillary Clinton’s former Communications Director, Jennifer Palmieri, was at the top of the Amazon bestseller list. In it Palmieri argues that all the confusion, admiration, hate, love, acceptance, and rejection experienced by the Clinton campaign presents an opportunity to reimagine what it means for women to be in leadership...

Like Nelson Mandela, Politicians Should Practice Meditation

Nelson Mandela, the legendary South African leader, was once asked how he kept himself from hating his tormentors. Mandela answered, “Hating clouds the mind… leaders can’t afford to hate.” I wish more politicians had this wisdom. It was an enigma for everyone close to him how he did not carry any malice or grievance against...

The Urgent Need for a Psychiatrist in the White House

And the even more urgent need for meditation… Slowly, but only slowly, there is some kind of understanding that perhaps politicians are not the most intelligent people to handle planet Earth and our future, and that perhaps they are a very real danger to our survival.

It’s nearly thirty years since Francis Fukuyama published his landmark essay “The End of History,” and yet here we still are.

Why Are We So Idiotic?

Imagine if suddenly the astronomers discover a planet, within reaching distance, just like Earth. How excited everyone would be. Let’s say it has oceans and lakes, with a good temperature for humans, has mountains and valleys, with plants and wonderful wild animals like lions and elephants. The only thing missing are humans. Wow! Think of...

Sex Trumps the Donald

Donald Trump offers another speech full of lies and distortions to convince American voters that “crooked Hilary” is a “world-class liar.” Another male chauvinist beating his chest and pumping his fists to persuade a gullible populace, Wilhelm Reich’s “Little Man,” with the usual rhetoric, essentially declaring that I am your man – follow me and...

Danger: Democracy at Work

Our human minds are by definition extremist organizations. A quick check of our own mind will show how the thoughts and emotions swing from one extreme to the other – from “for” to “against” and from “love” to “hate” – on a dime. George W.
