In his book on World War Two ("Zone of Interest"), and a full page article in the Financial Times, Martin Amis hardly broaches the main question (overshadowed by the mass killing of Jews), ie: why imperialism, why war, why was that so "natural" in 1939? In Germany and elsewhere...
Free-inquiry and the stories which narrowly confine (or limit) either expert or propaganda categories (the need for new stories)
The context in which equal free-inquiry is relevant, is partly (or, perhaps, mainly) defined by Godel’s incompleteness theorem (or defined in a more detailed relation to language)

Country star Billy Gilman stands by his man; there’s Christmas coal for cold-hearted politicians, hucksters and clergy; the EuroCourt of Justice outlaws asylum-seeker queer "tests", Putin defends homophobia as Russian LGBT refugees skyrocket, dozens of Bangalore "hijras" are busted for begging, Finns flee their Archbishop's marriage equality glee, and a Polish city pooh-poohs Winnie's nakedness.
Through research conducted by a group of Sonoma State University sociology students, this article discusses the local threat of police militarization in the Bay Area.

The new health care reform has put its effort toward creating affordable and dependable health care for all but its mission to do so had failed in some ways. Some see the Affordable Health Care Act of 2010 as a step towards better and more affordable health care, but for many, it is seen as a troublesome process and in worst cases, not even available. It has a specific goal in which to increase the quality and affordability of health insurance while lowering the uninsured rate by expanding public and private insurance coverage. Its main goal as well was to reduce the cost of healthcare for each individual and for the government itself. Yet for the homeless and for those who are undocumented, they do not get recognized as members of society who need this type of coverage. This act has not only penalized those who are homeless or undocumented, but it has excluded a large group of the population entirely from having the basic right of health coverage. These people who come to live or reside in the United States already to simply trying to fulfill the ‘American Dream’ and should be given these health care rights undeniably.
