THE EDITORIALS

  • Goon-Enforced Patriotism

    Goon-Enforced Patriotism November 2016 - Are we heading towards a “flat world”—a global village that would be a level playing field for commerce and culture? Or are nativism, racism, and xenophobia building walls in India as well as here?

  • Presidential Election 2016: A False Equivalency That May Destroy America

    Presidential Election 2016: A False Equivalency That May Destroy America October 2016 - “Trump’s a whacko, Clinton’s a liar,” is the word on the street. Editor-in-chief Parthiv N. Parekh's points support the Washington Post: "There is no equivalence between Ms. Clinton’s wrongs and Mr. Trump’s manifest unfitness for office.”

  • Whose Worldview is More Aligned with Reality?

    Whose Worldview is More Aligned with Reality? September 2016 - The political discourse of the nation is no longer just about policy differences. Each side believes the other is stupid or sinister, or both, full of lies and propaganda. What sources shape these views?

  • Here’s What’s Missing from “Black Lives Matter”

    Here’s What’s Missing from “Black Lives Matter” August 2016 - Black Lives Matter is a valid movement, and direly needed--but the polarization and damage to Black lives and Blue lives will get worse unless both sides shift from blame to introspection.

  • Politicizing Patriotism

    Politicizing Patriotism May 2016 - “Bharat Mata Ki Jai” (“May Mother India be victorious”) shouldn’t be controversial words in India! But the right wingers insist that every Indian must proclaim those words to prove patriotism.

  • A Political Party in Shambles

    A Political Party in Shambles April 2016 - The GOP is a dysfunctional mess, hijacked by loudmouths and haters, with a potential nominee more like a roadside hooligan than a contestant for the most responsible political office in the world.

  • Of Apple Pie and Curry

    Of Apple Pie and Curry January 2016 - Who is more hardworking, the American or the Indian?...Confused? That’s the thing about stereotypes: they are inherently contextual, often contrasting, and rarely conclusive--shapeshifters!

  • ISIS, the American Right, and Hindutva

    ISIS, the American Right, and Hindutva December 2015 - Extremists see themselves as righteous, morally superior, and God’s chosen ones. The consequence is the want to annihilate the “other,” who “obviously” is on the wrong side.

  • The Beef Nazis

    The Beef Nazis November 2015 - The following hypothetical question may seem absurd and extreme, but it is precisely the question that needs to be posed to the Hindu mob which, in a ruthless lynching incident, killed 52-year-old Mohammad Akhlaq Saifi, a Muslim, for allegedly eating beef: Would you do business with the killers of your mother? For that matter, why would you have anything to do with the killers of your mother?

  • CONFEDERATE HERITAGE vs. SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY

    CONFEDERATE HERITAGE vs. SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY August 2015 - While my respect for the three Civil War leaders depicted on Stone Mountain, as brave men willing to die for their cause, has never receded, I can’t say the same for their cause or ideology.
