Unhealthy Fixation: this is a long article but it’s well-researched and easy to read.

@TheIranDeal: official Twitter account for questions about the nuclear deal. A picture is not an argument, but this one’s pretty good. #obamappeasement
Microaggression, Macro-Crazy: lack of racism—colorblindness—is a “microaggression.” We’ve come a long way from Martin Luther King, Jr. The insanity in universities runs all the way up, apparently.
Southside With You: just started filming, coming in 2016. This is right up there with the Nobel Peace Prize.
Islam will outlaw: and they won’t outlaw it like you get a fine or 30-days in jail. This guy wants to bring Sharia law to England.
Greg Salmieri Discusses Ayn Rand’s Moral Philosophy: great introduction of her philosophy by a practicing philosopher. Even better than the actual content (with which many of us are already quite familiar) is Salmieri’s approach to answering the interviewer’s questions.
Last Week Tonight on Stadiums: biting take on municipal funding of sports teams’ arenas. Vulgar (and funny) as usual, John Oliver conveys the farcical nature of the practice in a very accessible way. I wish the right (and especially Objectivists) had the same sort of “production values” for their messaging.
