The United States: Innovation and Immobility
Joaquín Roy is Jean Monnet Professor and Director of the European Union Center at the University of Miami.By Joaquín RoyMIAMI, Feb 20 2018 (IPS)It is the country of paradox, based on the double column of creativity and tradition. Americans are unable to escape the twin submission to the adamnism of being the first and the last to accept that the rest of the planet can be more original and may outrank them in any field. Expelled, transferred, fled from Europe, they refuse to admit that the reconstructed European civilization, which they have neglected since 1776, can be superior to them. Sometimes, as Trump ca...

The Twisted Psychology of Parents Who Torture Their Children
Don’t try to fathom what was going on in the minds of the California parents who starved and imprisoned their 13 children for years before one of the victims escaped and informed the police last weekend. Really, there is no unraveling it—not fully, at least. Basic empathy and the care of offspring are among the most fundamental lines of code in the human operating system. When that gets corrupted—when the protectors become tormentors, when the nurturers become jailers—it’s nearly impossible to grasp, much less explain. That doesn’t mean that forensic psychologists and others aren’t...
