The war for drugs: Why all drugs should be legal

By Derek Danneker March 9, 2017 I exited the chilled and blusterous air created by the departing trains, rounding the corner of the marbled floor and tiled walls to ascend up the stairs.

The precarious job of president

By Joel Williamson March 9, 2017 We’ve seen him do his best at home and it’s not going so well right now. He’s alienated refugees, done nothing about racist acts against non-white, non-heterosexual persons and signed presidential mandates like thank-you cards. Now we have to see what he does with other countries who might want to […]

By Derek Danneker March 2, 2017 In a speech given to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Feb. 24 President Trump continued doing what he seemingly does best.

The illiberal reality of social justice

By Derek Danneker February 23, 2017 I shuffle into the auditorium following the great mass of students led in lines and by groups. It is orientation day at Lock Haven University and we sit down as an acting trio, two men and a woman, prepare their skits. The event laid before us is one where […]

The anti-feminist American feminist

By Derek Danneker February 16, 2017 Hillary Clinton, clad in a crimson pantsuit, holds out a microphone to a small girl at the center of a much larger audience in Las Vegas, Nev., a part of Clinton’s innumerable tours across the United States. The girl starts, “Do you think that when you’re president you’ll get […]
