Why a Dutch court stopped high school students from swapping schools
An Amsterdam court ruled in 2015 that students going to high school aren’t allowed to trade places with each other at different schools — at the schools assigned to them by the new lottery system used to match students to schools. Even if both students prefer to trade. Even if they are at each other’s top choice school.

Why Liberal Groups Like PETA Lie - Derek Hunter
PETA has exposed some serious torture of animals in the past, but like the liberal social justice warriors (SJW) roaming college campuses in desperate search of “hate,” when they don’t find it they sometimes create it.

Jordan Peterson | On the New York Times and “Enforced Monogamy”
Just the plain, bare, common-sense facts: socially-enforced monogamous conventions decrease male violence. In addition (and not trivially) they also help provide mothers with comparatively reliable male partners, and increase the probability that stable, father-intact homes will exist for children.

Paul Ford: What Is Code?
Most programmers aren’t working on building a widely recognized application like Microsoft Word. Software is everywhere. It’s gone from a craft of fragile, built-from-scratch custom projects to an industry of standardized parts, where coders absorb and improve upon the labors of their forebears (even if those forebears are one cubicle over).

Software is there when you switch channels and your cable box shows you what else is on. You get money from an ATM — software. An elevator takes you up five stories — the same. Facebook releases software every day to something like a billion people, and that software runs inside Web browsers and mobile applications. Facebook looks like it’s just pictures of your mom’s crocuses or your son’s school play — but no, it’s software.
