Brooks explains why Capitalism is so great & Socialism so flawed, but then he says that in order to make Capitalism better, we basically need more Socialist programs & policies (eg. More spending on the socialist education system, more welfare programs, government subsidies, carbon taxes, etc). Every one of his "solutions" is a socialist / big government one. Brooks thinks Capitalism can be made better by diminishing economic freedom, rather than expanding it - Even though he spent the first half explaining why economic freedom is better than central planning. What an absolute fucking hypocrite Brooks is. "I used to be a socialist" should read "I am still a socialist and advocate socialism, even though I know it's shit".

"This judgment has major implications for online freedom of expression around the world..."

If given the chance, governments will always impose limits on free speech, because doing so serves the interests of statist ideologues who want to grow & empower government at all costs.

Oak Park trustee Susan Buchanan berated fellow trustees for speaking on racial equity and oppression during Monday's board meeting.

Pure collectivism & utterly racist. This woman needs to be fired from her job & morally denounced.

Lawyers for Sandra the orangutan won a landmark appeal in 2014 which deemed her a "nonhuman person".

An orangutan doesn't have a rational faculty that's capable of understanding & respecting the concept of individual rights (no more than a lion or shark does), and so it cannot have those rights itself. Individual rights have to be reciprocated.

More than 300 boys and men, some as young as five and many in chains and bearing scars from beatings, have been rescued in a raid on a building that purported to be an Islamic school in northern Nigeria, police said on Friday.

This is inevitable in a religion / political ideology (Islam) which sanctions and mandates the subjugation & enslavement of unbelievers.

Tony Blair is desperate for the truth about Islam not to get out, because he spent almost the last two decades telling everyone that Islam is a religion of peace, and so if it turns out Islam ISN'T a religion of peace (like British First argues), then boy oh boy does Tony Blair have some explaining to do.

Hundreds of cheetahs are smuggled from the Horn of Africa to Gulf countries each year, where they're sold to the ultra-rich as pets. At the current rates of trafficking, the cheetah population in the region could soon be wiped out.

If there's a market for them, breeders will have a financial incentive to breed more of them, thus ensuring that they don't go extinct.

...the United States is locked on a path that leads directly to the Third World of 60 years ago. President Trump is helpless to do anything about it...

It wasn't "globalism" that did this, but the fact that the US economy is less competitive than the Chinese economy, owing to onerous US regulatory, tax and other burdens (which China has far less of). The solution is for the US to stop taxing, regulating and otherwise burdening the US economy. That would require a vast scaling back of the size/scope of the US government, which only few actually want to do. So instead, what we'll hear is instead more crap about the bogeyman of "globalism", thus letting people avoid having to face the truth about the state of the US economy and of the big government that seems intent on making it a burdensome and restrictive place to do business.
