Last Wednesday, 4 May 2022, Caleb Maupin filed what is surely one of his most important chats, covering, as usual, a variety of topics, but the outstanding part comprised a couple of subjects rarely discussed with such honesty and lucidity, namely, the issues that define what is being “on the left” in the US, and the urgent need for a completely new approach to regain relevancy. Up to this point, says Maupin, the Right is eating our lunch. While the left has spent much of its political capital on what he defines as depressing and even pessimistic “causes” (abortion rights, overpopulation, anti-imperialist struggles, environmental destruction, etc.), all of which are valid and even urgent, Maupin notes that they also usually trigger a negative reaction in the working class, thereby opening the door to the Right, with its misty-eyed hymns to family, patriotism, praise for the invididual, “democracy”, “freedom”, “free enterprise”, and so on.

The ongoing gender-related disputes about who should be allowed to participate in sports competitions can be solved very simply. The process of creating sensible competitive guidelines has evolved over decades, and will continue to evolve. The “trans” crisis in sports can be easily handled with no further blood spilled, jaw grinding, or panties in a twist.

DAVID W PEAR—Western governments, particularly in the English-speaking countries, have cowed freedom of the press. According to a ranking of press freedom, “based on an evaluation of pluralism, independence of the media, quality of legislative framework and safety of journalists” by Reporters Without Borders, the five eyes countries are ranked as follows for press freedom: New Zealand (8), Canada (18), Australia (19), United Kingdom (40), United States (45). These rankings are a disgrace to countries that claim to be democratic, free and exceptional.
