The Atlantic Divide

By: Drew Christiansen SJ

Biden’s first steps The term “affront” has been used to describe the AUKUS deal that saw Australia cancel without notice a 2016 contract worth $60 billion to purchase diesel submarines from France. Instead, Australia would now buy nuclear submarines from the U.S. and the UK. The French were understandably offended by the switch and particularly by the decisive role of the U.S., its two-century-long ally, and the major beneficiary of the new deal. To express his dismay, President Francois Macron...

Covid, Faith and the Fallibility of Science

By: Guy Consolmagno, SJ

“These past two years have exposed how the science vs. faith discourse isn’t an abstract ideological debate but a false dichotomy that has disastrous real-world consequences,” writes Tish Harrison Warren in a recent opinion column of the New York Times.[1] Her insight was motivated by research showing that evangelical Christians in the United States were one of the sectors of society that was the least-vaccinated against the Covid virus. The implication is that a distrust of science in this community,...

The Middle East Between Pandemic and Oil Crisis

By: Giovanni Sale, SJ

In the last two years the world order has been shaken by the Covid-19 pandemic, which has generated new and increasingly aggressive variants, causing millions of deaths in many countries – especially where vaccines are scarce – and by the climate crisis, which is becoming more acute and worrying every year, so much so that it has mobilized not only activists in the field, the participants in so-called “ecological movements,” but also politicians and the world of finance and production...
