Death with aesthetics

    First Things: We don’t speak plainly in public discourse anymore. Rather, we equivocate and deploy euphemisms to sanitize our debates. Take the passing of Brittany Maynard by her own hand, which the media has repeatedly characterized as an act of “dignity.” To be sure, Maynard died with human dignity—but not because she committed suicide. Human dignity is intrinsic. Indeed, to accept the premise of suicide as death with dignity says—or at least strongly implies—that patients who expire naturally die with indignity.

A new time for choosing on life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness

    The Heritage Foundation: America exists to defend the unalienable rights of the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” These truths have been challenged in the past 50 years in ways that Ronald Reagan could not have imagined in 1964. Unless they are protected in law and—more important—lived out in culture, constitutional self-government will be increasingly at risk. In this new time for choosing, we must return to the synthesis of the American Founding: ordered liberty based on faith and reason, natural rights and morality, limited government and civil society—with the laws of nature and nature’s God providing the standard.

Culture war, spiritual war

Has the sexual revolution come full circle?

    Summit: Since the 1960s, the predictable slide of collegiate culture toward a bacchanal of sexual permissiveness has upended the old-fashioned view that men and women fill distinct roles in relationships. For generations, women played the pursued, men the pursuers. In a culture that placed a premium on virginity, a young woman needed no excuse to refuse sex. Her default answer was “no.”

Abortion debated – Emerald City with Emily Heist Moss

    Soulation: I’ve become friends with this columnist over in Chicago. There’s a lot that separates us. Emily Heist Moss is liberal, shows up religiously for Pride Parades, and if she got pregnant right now, Emily believes she would probably have an abortion. But, there’s also a lot that unites us, we are both vocal feminists, writers, we both care about humanizing the debate across the aisle, and let’s not forget our penchant for handicrafts (cross-stitch for Emily, knitting for me).
