  • Racial Profiling should be used in airports and other transportation terminals

    Fishman, a professor of law at the Catholic University of America, argues that to target an entire ethnic group is in most cases illegal and violates fundamental American values, however it is justified for the time being for several reasons. There is no question that Islamic terrorist groups have a vendetta against the United States and wish to perpetrate attacks against America, which usually manifest in plots against public transportation services. Squandering scarce public safety resources on unproven security measures that infringe upon the rights of innocent people and divert attention from true security threats does not keep travelers safe, and it certainly does not keep America free.

  • Debate should be a required subject in High School

    70, in Schall on Chesterton - Timely Essays on Timeless Paradoxes (The Catholic University of America, Washington, D.C., 2000). First, it can be offered as an extra-curricular ACTIVITY, "debate club," without any academic credits attached to the activity (as it was in the private Jesuit Catholic high school that I attended). (Dewey's thought still reigns supreme) In contrast, I subscribe to the traditional CATHOLIC philosophy of education: The focus (and primary RESPONSIBILITY) is on the student (guided by his parents, parent, or guardian).
