Milei’s Victory is Just the First Step 

By Shayne O’Loughlin In a previous article, I took a journalistic approach to covering the curiosity that was Javier Milei, the libertarian Argentine presidential candidate, with a healthy balance of skepticism and optimism. No doubt that in a nation where a political ideology like Peronism has dominated politics for more than half a century, placing any bets on black would have been too dangerous a gamble. After the release of that article, the first round…

How to DEMOLISH Your New Year’s Resolution

Angelo DiTocco One of the most important aspects of life is becoming the best version of ourselves that we can be. We all have goals, and we all desire to achieve them. And just like November is the perfect time to stop whackin’ your worm see what you look like with facial hair, the new year is the perfect time to start realizing your true potential as a human being. But this is easier said…

Only Scams. The Talented George Santos and the Art of Lying

By Marco Flores          George Santos, the scandal-plagued Republican Congressman of New York’s 3rd district, has been under scrutiny ever since the NY Times published a bombshell article on December 19th, 2022, revealing that Santos had largely fabricated his resume. Santos made false claims about his biography, work history, financial status, and other matters when he ran for Congress. Despite his constituents, Democrats, and even some Republicans all calling for his resignation, Santos refused and…

The Economics of “A Christmas Carol”

By Darina Keshtova Christmas is a very special time of the year, associated not only with widely beloved traditions, favorite movies, hot chocolate, fir trees, and heart-warming stories, but also with economic and social significance. As a person studying these topics, I find it interesting to learn about economic trends during holidays like Christmas, where countless consumers engage in transactions with thousands of sellers, annually spending around eight hundred billion dollars. Even though the socio-economic…

The Kentucky Conference or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Noah’s Ark

By Logan Blakeslee Astute readers of this publication may recall my article “Creationism in America: Faith turned Fanatical” from February of 2023. For those who have not read it, I highly suggest skimming through it before reading this follow-up, as it provides the context necessary to understand the basics of Young-Earth Creationism in the United States. With that said, I will now regale you with my experiences at the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky.  I…

Multi-Cultis form New Government: SA AVP Jumps Ship to Join New Allies

by Nathan L. Wurtzel The Political community at Binghamton University was dealt a shock wave of earthquake proportions this month as several personalities who purport to represent “underrepresented” students have announced the formation of an alternative student government. The new government, which will be called the Association of Suppressed Students (ASS), is encouraging “cultural” unions and likeminded leftist student organizations to withdraw from the Stupid Association (SA) and join their pirate regime. “We have been…

How to Celebrate Thanksgiving in Today’s Economy

Angelo DiTocco Everyone seems to forget about Thanksgiving in favor of making their Halloween costumes in August and shopping for Christmas in October, but Thanksgiving is actually a pretty cool holiday. You get to come together as a family, have a delicious feast, express your gratitude for all of the good things in life, and honor what few peaceful interactions there were between the settlers and the natives. But in these Unprecedented TimesTM, it’s not…

The Importance of Lost Literary Works

By Daniel Guido Here’s a thought: consider the 3.2 million books and journals found within the Bartle Library collection. Compare that to all the text that’s ever been written down since the beginning of humanity’s ability to write. Then think about how much of that knowledge is now lost to time, perhaps destroyed and gone forever; maybe locked away in some ancient basement, just waiting to be rediscovered. As we learned in high school history…

What Comes After Tragedy

By Arthur O’Sullivan In writing this article, I intend, with the benefit of hindsight, to document and evaluate Binghamton University’s response to the student suicide of October 30, 2023. In doing so, I hope to give a guide for students who want to learn from and help prevent tragedy. This is not an easy article to write. Leaving aside the problem of tonal clash with this issue, there are a number of pitfalls that come…

The Jackboot That Is Not

By Comson Cao It’s difficult to live in the West today and not constantly hear some kind of call for social justice. Claims of racism, sexism, and a billion other ‘-isms’ and ‘-phobias’ abound. Even fairy tales are problematic because they enforce the patriarchy by upholding gender roles, according to my most recent reading in English class. All of these terms express a perception of oppression. Activists believe that unfair treatment or discrimination pervades “the…

Why We Need to Bring Back Vampires 

By Madeline Perez When I was 7, I wrote and illustrated a “book” about vampires. I know this because I was so proud of my book, in the post-coital haze of my creation, I thought other people would not believe a 7-year-old could possibly have written it, so I put my full name and age on the front in colored pencil. I love vampires. I love their cool teeth. I love vague Catholic gesturing. But…

In the Lion’s Den: Who is Javier Milei?

By Shayne O’Loughlin On August 13th, 2023, Argentines across the country attended their nearest polling station to vote in their primary elections. These primaries narrow down candidates on the ballot to those with over 1.5% of the vote in the general election to take place October 22nd. Among the candidates were showings of the establishment coalitions: on the left, the Peronist “Unión por la Patria,” and on the right, the “Juntos por el Cambio”. Uniquely,…

Halloween Economics

By Darina Keshtova Every year, millions of people in the United States have fun on Halloween. This month is special not only for children and their parents, but also for economists who study trends in the consumer goods market. Preparing for this holiday is a high priority for many, and in the run-up to All Saints’ Day, people purchase themed costumes, decorations, gifts, and—of course—candy, all to organize themed events for themselves and their friends.…
