  • Michael Zimmerman’s Breakthrough Journal Article
    ICE’s own Senior Fellow Michael Zimmerman recently published an article in The Breakthrough Journal, entitled: Love and Vinyl Chloride—A Deep Ecologist Reconciles With His Father and the Modern World. The Breakthrough Journal is the signature publication of the California-based environmental think tank, The Breakthrough Institute. We admire the work of Breakthrough and are pleased to see Michael’s article published by them. The Breakthrough Journal introduces the article as follows: “In forays into environmental philosophy, many of us forget–or neglect–the powerful personal forces that push us towards a certain way of thinking about the world. Michael Zimmerman does not make this ... (Read More)

  • Why Congress’s Move to Delay the IRS Muzzle Rule Another Year Is Not All Good News
    The draft of the House of Representatives’ financial-services appropriations bill contains language very similar to what was passed last year to defund the IRS from implementing the nonprofit muzzle rule. If enforced, the rule would harm the nonprofit community by curtailing their First Amendment right to speech and creating legal exposure for accidentally violating these new draconian limits. It’s well and good that the IRS will be prohibited another year from carrying out this rule, but unfortunately this bill leaves the door open for the IRS to move forward with their mandate the following year. Nobody knows which party will ... (Read More)

  • Moderates and Centrists and Mad as Hell at Both Parties
    What we have seen at the RNC in Cleveland and are seeing at the DNC in Philadelphia is not centrism, it is not moderation, and it is not working for the country. ... (Read More)

  • Women in Positions of Power: The Next UN Secretary General
    The United Nations (UN) is an international peacekeeping organization founded in 1945 and is made up of 193 Member States. Currently, it is headed by Ban-Ki Moon, who was born in the Republic of Korea and was first elected to the UN in 2007. Under Mr. Ban’s leadership, the organization has seen many forms of intervention ranging from deploying peacekeepers in countries facing crisis to promoting sustainable development and empowering women with the creation of UN Women. From 1945 to 2016, the UN Secretary General Office has always been headed by male leaders. However, times are changing. Mr. Ban’s role ... (Read More)

  • E Pluribus Unum
    By Thomas H. Little, Ph.D. and SLLF Director of Curriculum Development and Research E Pluribus Unum. Out of many, one. America’s unofficial motto. It is on the Great Seal of the United States and the back of the quarter. It has been used for generations to describe the country, referring to the belief that many nationalities, religions and races come together to form one America. Of late it seems more of a motto than a reality as we appear to be divided by many things – party, ideology, ethnicity, religion, race. However, I recently had the pleasure of witnessing the ...

  • Bridging the Divide between Sensitivity to Minorities and Free Speech
    While we often study issues related to bridging divisions between liberals and conservatives, there are many issues that aren’t quite as clear cut. We recently studied an event put on by The Village Square concerning the tension between sensitivity to minorities on campus, which sometimes involve limits on what people can express, versus the principle of free speech. Recent controversies at universities like Claremont Mckenna, Yale, and the University of Missouri have highlighted these tensions, with liberals tending to be more in favor of protecting minorities, but also often pitting liberals against fellow liberals. At the beginning of the event, the ... (Read More)

  • ICE Op-Ed Published by The Daily Beast
    Those familiar with the work of the Institute for Cultural Evolution know that we are working to help evolve both the left and the right side of politics. In furtherance of these efforts, today the mainstream media outlet The Daily Beast published my op-ed on ‘a more evolved right.’ Even though I remain on the left, as an integralist, I want to help both sides to evolve. And as I say in the op-ed: “There will always be some version of the right in American politics, so even liberals have a stake in the right’s positive evolution.” My original title ... (Read More)
