Last week the army announced that it is training the settlers and telling them when they are allowed to shoot to kill. The army is also preparing for Palestinians shooting at soldiers and settlers ‘from inside the mass demonstrations’. I have been at hundreds of demonstrations and never witnessed anyone shooting ‘from inside’ them. But it is a handy pretext. During the second intifada, Israeli army snipers picked out and killed ‘ringleaders’ in crowds of demonstrators. It was highly effective: the non-violent demonstrations soon gave way to violence and the army was back on familiar ground.

One implication of this, Keltner says, is that’s unreasonable to structure a society on the hope that rich people will help those less fortunate. “One clear policy implication is, the idea of nobless oblige or trickle-down economics, certain versions of it, is bull,” Keltner says. “Our data say you cannot rely on the wealthy to give back. The ‘thousand points of light’—this rise of compassion in the wealthy to fix all the problems of society—is improbable, psychologically.”

Copyright attorney Marc Toberoff’s winning streak on behalf of comics creators collided with the Southern District Court of New York’s streak of publisher-friendly, work-for-hire rulings last week and the losers were Jack Kirby’s heirs. In a July 27 summary judgment in favor of Marvel/Disney that shut down Toberoff’s arguments before they even reached trial, Judge Colleen McMahon concluded that Kirby’s heirs were not entitled to a share in such creations as Iron Man and Thor, because they were the products of work for hire.

For a few years now, World Wrestling Entertainment has spent much of its time in a lamentable rut, focusing much of its attention on central figure John Cena and his kid-friendly potty humor and square-jawed heroics. But over the past month or so, that's been changing. Cena has a new foe: C.M. Punk, a tatted-up, fire-eyed, uncommonly erudite bad guy who thinks, and sometimes acts, like a good guy. But there's a catch to that feud. It won't last long, since Punk doesn't expect to be in the company a week from now.

Does he ever look at millionaire comedians such as Michael McIntyre – whom Lee accused of spoonfeeding his fans "warm diarrhoea" – and feel the tiniest bit jealous? "Not really. I wouldn't want that level of recognition. It's quite difficult as a comic if you're that famous to know whether people are laughing at you or whether they're just excited about seeing someone famous in a football stadium. It's hard to go badly under those circumstances, and going badly is a big part of what I do. I'm no good at the things they do – I can't do panel shows, I don't like being interviewed as a personality, I wouldn't want to have to sit in the green room on Jonathan Ross and make small talk with Rihanna. I would find it awkward and embarrassing."

What does it say about our era that so many people think it's cool to place these pre-faded, instant-nostalgia filters on the images that will one day constitute their treasury of precious memories? When they look back to the early 21st century, their pics will look like they were taken two or three decades earlier, summoning up a long-lost era they don't have any reason to feel nostalgic about.

I'd like to teach you a different easy question, one that is far, far more useful than Ken Ham's silly "Were you there?" The question you can always ask is, "How do you know that?" Right away, you should be able to see the difference. You already knew the answer to the "Were you there?" question, but you don't know the answer to the "How do you know that?" question. That means the person answering it will tell you something you don't know, and you will learn something new. And that is the coolest thing ever.

Conservatives used to be the ones with heads firmly based in reality. Their reforms were powerful because they used the market, streamlined government and empowered individuals. Their effects were large-scale and important: think of the reform of the tax code in the 1980s, for example, which was spearheaded by conservatives. Today conservatives shy away from the sensible ideas of the Bowles-Simpson commission on deficit reduction because those ideas are too deeply rooted in, well, reality. Does anyone think we are really going to get federal spending to the level it was at under Calvin Coolidge, as Paul Ryan's plan assumes? Does anyone think we will deport 11 million people?
