Interesting Takes from Home and Abroad:

Nietzsche Would Laugh — Chuck Colson
One of the biggest obstacles facing what’s called the “New Atheism” is the issue of morality. Writers like Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, and Christopher Hitchens have to convince people that morals and values are possible in a society that does not believe in God.

The Best Police Force in Iraq — Michael J. Totten
In late July when I visited a police station in the town of Mushadah just north of Baghdad I worried that Iraq was doomed to become the next Gaza.

Stop your sobbing — Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger
Doomsayers like Al Gore and Jared Diamond aren’t doing the environment much good. To save the earth, we need to stop blaming and start celebrating ourselves.

Criminal Injustice And Race — Stuart Taylor
It is regrettable that the legend of the “Jena Six” has for many become the leading symbol of the grave injustices to African-Americans that pervade our nation’s penal system.

Hillary, Soros, Alinsky, and Rush — Kyle-Anne Shiver
For the past couple of months, I’ve been reading up on the Clinton/Soros connection into the wee hours of every night.

The evidence for Neocommunism — James Lewis
There is a compelling factual case to be made that the contemporary radical Left can properly be called “Neocommunist.”

The Real Clarence Thomas — John Yoo

Tortured Arguments — Wall Street Journal Editorial
Giving al Qaeda an interrogation-resistance manual. 

Still Losing the AIDS Fight — Richard Holbrooke
On the day you read this column, an estimated 12,000 people worldwide will contract HIV.

Until then, those people will unintentionally spread the virus that lies silently within each of them.

Medical Competition Works for Patients — John Stossel
Health-care costs overall have been rising faster than inflation, but not all medical costs are skyrocketing. In a few pockets of medicine, costs are down while quality is up.
