#USA #Podcast: The #Gun Show

source: https://www.wnyc.org/story/gun-show/
For nearly 200 years of our nation’s #history, the Second Amendment was an all-but-forgotten rule about the importance of militias. But in the 1960s and 70s, a #movement emerged — led by #BlackPanthers and a recently-repositioned #NRA — that insisted owning a #firearm was the right of each and every American. So began a constitutional debate that only the Supreme #Court could solve. That didn’t happen until 2008, when a #Washington, D.C. #security guard named Dick #Heller made a compelling case.

In 2008, the Supreme Court stepped in to settle our fight over the Second Amendment’s meaning. They did. And they didn’t.

How #Britain Lost Its Cool

source: https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/cool-britannia-and-merkels-germany-by-mark-leonard-2017-10
How, then, did the country move from #cosmopolitanism back to nationalism and nativism? The short answer is that Britain’s #rebranding became a victim of its own success. By accommodating previously excluded citizens, the new national story made those at the center of the older, narrower version feel like a threatened minority. And when the #Brexit #referendum rolled around, they fought back.

How Britain Lost Its Cool by Mark Leonard - Project Syndicate

In the past 20 years, the UK and Germany have switched positions, with the latter now representing openness while the former has come to embody backward-looking nationalism. But there is no reason to believe that the two countries won't swap places again.

Facing #poverty, academics turn to #sex #work and sleeping in cars

#source: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/sep/28/adjunct-professors-homeless-sex-work-academia-poverty
Adjuncting has grown as #funding for public universities has fallen by more than a quarter between 1990 and 2009. Private institutions also recognize the allure of part-time professors: generally they are cheaper than full-time staff, don’t receive benefits or support for their personal research, and their hours can be carefully limited so they do not teach enough to qualify for health insurance.

#Rohingya #Muslims fear the #UN failed them

Now, with the situation exploding, over 1000 dead, and half a million #refugees, the question must be asked: What is the cost of such silence?

And furthermore, if the UN is prepared to act as cynically as nation-states, what reason is there for it to exist at all?
