#331 / Integrities Makes A Recommendation
I am once again recommending the journal Integrities, published by the IF Foundation. The most recent edition has what I thought was a particularly insightful opening essay: "Confusion! What Is Really Happening?"

The essence of our political "confusion" is that it is no longer easy (or maybe even possible, sometimes) to determine what is true and what isn't.
