Conquer Life’s Challenges by Looking Inside Yourself | Cornel West

Thriving in life requires fortitude. It’s a strength that Professor Cornel West refers to as spiritual fortitude. What gives us power in life, he says, is not anything in the world, but our own internal resources. Concepts like hope, faith, and love have no material reality—save perhaps for neurons firing in the brain—yet they are the cornerstones of human well being. Introspection will deliver you infinitely more hope than an archeological expedition. Although to be sure, navel gazing alone won’t get you through life. Discovering “groundless but soulful” resources on…

Why The Real North Korea Threat Isn’t Nuclear Weapons | Michael Desch

Friendly neighbors and wide oceans. That, in a phrase, is America’s fallback security plan. It happens to be a very effective security plan, says Michael Desch, although you wouldn’t know it by listening to politicians. Their squawking about threats to America are more the result of what President Eisenhower called the military-industrial complex and America’s history of interventionist foreign policy. Case in point: North Korea. The hermit kingdom’s nuclear weapons are a defensive strategy, not an offensive one. Kim Jong-un is a rational actor who wants his family to stay…

Richard Dawkins: Why Religion and Evolution Don’t Mix Well

What is the Darwinian survival value of religion? That’s not the right question, says Richard Dawkins. To find the right question, he relies on an evolutionary analogy: Why do moths fly into flames? It means instant death, so what’s the evolutionary value of this kamikaze behavior? Dawkins delivers a crash course in proximate and ultimate causality, two very important distinctions in biology.

Why Diversity Is More Important Than Meritocracy: Quotas, Talent, Wall Street | Sallie Krawcheck

We need to rethink our diversity strategy, says Sallie Krawcheck. What we’ve been trying for the last decade hasn’t been working, but what exactly is the problem? Research reveals that diversity is actually worse in meritocracies. Managers—and particularly middle managers, Krawcheck points out—fall into the cognitive trap of hiring people who “remind me of a young me” (i.e. look like them and think like them) instead of more cognitively diverse people who would bring a missing skill set to a team.
