The newest edition of The Undercurrent is now available to order, and will arrive on your doorstep in the middle of March! In this issue, we will look at issues ranging from the effect of government involvement in education to the recent surge in revolutionary movements.
With regards to the latter, Valery Publius offers an analysis of what makes revolutions desirable and successful, and why movements like Occupy Wall Street are ultimately destined to fail to bring about positive change. Noah Stahl examines the tendency of social and political debaters to focus on superficial aspects of issues, and argues that we need to instead encourage a focus on fundamentals. Nicholas Marquiss asks about education: what is fundamentally important in creating an effective school system? He argues that government involvement, far from being a core necessity for high-quality and widely-available education, is fundamentally destructive to those aims. Finally, Alex Hrin shows why restrictive government policies on energy like cap-and-trade fail to consider just how deeply important energy is to human life.
