I’ll admit it. Joe Biden crossed a line here. He set up an idol and singled it out for praise. It shows what can happen to a man who is in the habit of treating corporations as persons.
In a recent review for the New York Times, philosopher David Albert explains the basic thesis of physicist Lawrence Krauss’s new book, A Universe From Nothing, in terms that are clear as a bell, then he skewers it just as effectively. … Continue reading
