My objection was to the role of the United States in defining the terms.
I don't see the point in going down the route so familiar to all ideologies, of determining who is and isn't a proper...

That Clinton didn't feel any shame in saying this, and actually found it hilarious, is troubling indeed. And this is who the self-proclaimed 'progressives' will be voting for. If only it wasn't so...

This is an important point. You're right to single out the Spanish, who would to move proverbial mountains to prevent any of this becoming attractive or even merely acceptable. There are others who'd...

With the international prices for Scotland's prime natural resources on now pretty stable lows, the massive deficit created by its spendthrift politicians would make any EU negotiations with an...
Good article by veteran Middle East reporter Patrick Cockburn: 'Compare the coverage of Mosul and East Aleppo and it tells you a lot about the propaganda we consume'.
After he talks about Iran for...

The election isn't rigged, but the system is.
Very nice. Trine's use of colours remains impressive.

There is nothing mysterious about the voting system (a handful of states excepted); if Stein gets the most votes in a state she'll get the electoral votes and they'll then elect her president.

Like I acknowledged, it's impossible to know what Trump wants or intends to do. One moment he's saying "let Russia take care of it" and the next he wants to "bomb ISIS to hell".
In any case, it...

Good question. What does it say about the 50+ million people backing Clinton that they do so in spite (or even because) of her intention to attack Syria to create a no-fly-zone?
Is insulting a...

The idiosyncratic British system helped with that second part, as national polling isn't really helpful when 12% of the total votes gets you 1 seat (as with UKIP). The US isn't too dissimilar; nobody...

I started Pillars of Eternity last night. Games like this are always rather bad at first when the developers assume you've never played a single game ever and give at most a couple of seconds of...

There's many more of those: don't forget that Clinton wants to go to war with Syria - because that's what a no-fly zone amounts to in the words of the American military itself - and she is getting...

Anyone's? Objective? The US presidential debate threshold is just an arbitrary number cooked up by the Commission on Presidential Debates, which pretends to be independent but was created by the...

Is that why the Republicans have majorities in both houses of Congress?
The Republicans also have multiple AA representatives in the House and half the AA senators are Republican (which isn't...

What is this based on? This is the party that ran with a female vice-presidential candidate just two elections ago.
A friend of mine mused on the day that Pence was announced that now would...

Arcade racing games have become a 'play on TV' kind of genre for me. Steam has actually worked surprisingly well in its TV mode, even if it can sometimes be a bit of a hassle to deal with the...

And tends to come with the exemplary application and subsequent implicit threat of violence.
Self-styled anarchists will say the same is true for the state, and they wouldn't be completely wrong....

If there is a mandate for it, sure. A comment to this effect landed a previous Minister of Justice in some hot water, but it's true. It's quite easy to change Dutch law and the constitution is very...

I've thought about that, and I've been impressed by what I thought would be a minor difference, but since I also use my desktop computer for work and don't have unlimited space to place secondary...

I suppose the obsession with such matters is an age-related phase as much as a personality. I've been playing games labelled 'sims' for the better part of the last two decades and the relative effect...

What the Democrats did in response was very clever. They 'rephrased' not the comment itself, but the percentage.
What are the Republicans to do? Say it's not 50% but 10%? As far as arguments go...

Both in the United Kingdom and in the United States the parties who initiated that war were re-elected. In both elections, the Americans and the Brits cared more about domestic issues than what was...
Sure, and I've spent my fair share of time mucking around in such games as well.
But Kerbal has been around for years, in various forms. If it's still niche now, it's unlikely to ever change.
Perhaps, but Portal is almost ten years old, and Minecraft and Terraria, such as they were, were also released five years ago.
Has it, though? Kerbal barely gets over 10,000 players on Steam -...
