Why liberals might kill free speech Jun 23 by Rick Searle

We’ve got a huge problem on our hands which the 2016 election, along with Brexit, has not so much created as fully exposed. What we’ve witnessed is a kind of short-circuit between the three pillars that have defined our particular form of democratic liberalism over the last century.

Is Reality Winner “One of Us?” by William Sims Bainbridge

What Does the Campaign to Make Internet Access a Human Right Say about Who We Are? by Steve Fuller

What follows is not an argument for rejecting internet access as a human right. I have no problem with internet access being made available to all humans. But I believe that the enthusiasm attached to this campaign speaks to the Realpolitik that often lay behind ‘human rights’ campaigns.

He writes in a sweeping, breathless and occasionally grandiose style. As you read, you can’...

This work and proposal emerged under my experience during five years working with children in school Reggio Emilia in Chile, as a teacher of art. My studies were not limited to teaching and experiencing the constructivist experiences with children and create art lesson plans. During this stage in the artistic teaching with young children I began to investigate the pedagogical education and how it could develop and deepen the curriculum or child pedagogy from the cultural point of view and from a contemporary perspective. After collect, study...
