Why Injustice Is So Prevalent

One group of folks embrace changes while others are beside themselves. This is true of conservatives, liberals, and everyone on the spectrum of...

Why Is He Such an Ass?

Do you have someone in your life who acts like a complete jerk? I hope not. But most of us have no problem thinking of the annoying co-worker, a perpetual habit of a spouse, or the way Uncle Harry or Aunt Izabelle get drunk at the holidays and spill...

What Makes People So Mean?
