The State That Liberal Dreams Are Made Of  The New Republic

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak received national attention last week for vetoing a bill aimed at reforming the Electoral College. State lawmakers approved a measure that would have added Nevada to the popular vote interstate compact, pledging its six electoral votes to whoever wins the nationwide popular vote. Fourteen states plus the District of Columbia, comprising 189 electoral votes, have signed the compact. Once the compact reaches the threshold of 270 votes, it would theoretically render the Electoral College obsolete. Sisolak said he opposed the bill because it “could diminish the rol...

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testifies before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on Capitol Hill April 11, 2018, in Washington, DC. Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images The precipitating event for Silicon Valley’s regulatory reckoning? A change in our political beliefs. The cascade of political probes targeting the four biggest companies in tech feels like it happened suddenly. But Washington’s surge in scrutiny toward Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Apple in the past week is a natural culmination of a relationship between tech and society that’s soured over the past two years.

Individual liberty and the common good aren’t mutually exclusive - The Washington Post

Individual liberty and the common good aren’t mutually exclusive  The Washington Post

A barn with an American flag painted on it near Lebanon, Pa.The Washington Post George F. Will’s latest book, “The Conservative Sensibility,” may be worth reading in full, but his premise is wrong [“Is the individual obsolete?,” the Opinions Essay, June 2]. Progressive vision is not fixated on government means; it must also support American society’s “extraordinary — and creative — complexity.” Mr. Will seems to forget the dual moral beacons enshrined in the Constitution: individual liberty and the common good. They are not mutually exclusive. Progressivism flows from them as dynamic aspira...

A security guard passes a Google booth during the Big Data Expo in Guiyang, China, on May 26.EPA Political movements need a villain if they are going to hold together diverse, often contradictory coalitions. For Democrats, their latest villain rode down an escalator in Midtown Manhattan on a mid-June day four years ago. Republicans, by contrast, have been searching for a new villain ever since the end of the Cold War. The impeachable Bill Clinton, Islamist terrorism and Obamacare all served as targets for the conservative movement, but none of these villains was able to galvanize the coalit...

The Coming G.O.P. Apocalypse  The New York Times

For much of the 20th century, young and old people voted pretty similarly. The defining gaps in our recent politics have been the gender gap (women preferring Democrats) and the education gap. But now the generation gap is back, with a vengeance. This is most immediately evident in the way Democrats are sorting themselves in their early primary preferences. A Democratic voter’s race, sex or education level doesn’t predict which candidate he or she is leaning toward, but age does. In one early New Hampshire poll, Joe Biden won 39 percent of the vote of those over 55, but just 22 percent of t...
