Intelligence is easy to find online, but there’s precious little wisdom. Those of us who spend too much time in the digital world (for me, it’s a job requirement) are all too familiar with the firehose of the latest news, trends and controversies. Within hours, they’ll be replaced by new topics just as meaningless.

Many experts have sounded alarms that this torrent of ephemera and the mad chase for clicks are rewiring brains, reducing attention spans and altering how we process information. Too often, we focus on the transient and urgent and abandon the meaningful and eternal.

Some of y'all should do what this guy did: read a book and touch some grass.

Discourse Magazine is an online publication of the Mercatus Center, a conservative think tank.

Student loan debt should not be cancelled except when the school isn’t valid. It’s unfair for a plumber to pay for someone else’s degree.

That seems a short sentence for murder. I’m against the death penalty but life seems more appropriate. This was an unprovoked attack against someone helping her

I have not been to Austin for about a year but it was sad little city. It smelled like urine, drug addicts roaming the street and crime was rampant. I am surprised Texas hasn't done more to clean up its capital.
