If a young man finds his job personally distasteful and morally objectionable, it seems to me the psychologically healthy and ethically correct thing to do would be to resign. Continuing to do the work and accept a paycheck after publicly declaring one's abhorrence for the task seems a bit u…

Generally, at times of national emergency, political leaders defer to experts, weigh in on major decisions and ensure that the right people make the right decisions. FDR famously served as commander in chief during World War II while delegating day-to day operations to Gen. Dwight D. Eisenho…

The more ostentatiously people display devotion or virtue, the less I am convinced. That applies to any popular fervor, from religious revivals to political demonstrations. A casserole, quietly carried to a sick neighbor, conveys far more Christian spirit than any wailing confession of sins …
