Scales of Justice

When we look at issues, we strive to present a balanced account of the various sides. We include references to source material so that you can verify what we claim. We also include guidance about why people would choose one side over another. This helps you understand why people have made their choices. In turn, this may put your own beliefs into a new light, and will help you to have constructive discussions with others about these issues.

For more information about our goals for the issues we present, please see our Editorial Policy.

Issues List

Here are the issues we are covering or have covered:

  • The FBI, Apple, and the iPhone discusses the case of the FBI and their court order demanding that Apple help them “unlock” an iPhone. That iPhone was used by one of the shooters in the San Bernardino workplace shooting.
  • Apple, Foxconn, and the Suicide Scandal looks at the Foxconn suicide scandal of 2010. We compare the actual suicide rates at Foxconn with readily available suicide rates by country. This provides some context for the Foxconn suicide rates. Despite the wide publicity given to this scandal, no reporter seems to have spent the five minutes or so that it would have taken to do this.
  • The Volkswagen Diesel Emissions Scandal examines the history of this scandal and the evidence. This issue is much more grey than most people realize.

If you have a hot-button issue that you’d like to see us cover, please contact us. Although we can’t analyze every issue that is suggested, we do keep track of them. When we choose our next issue to cover, we consider how often issues have been suggested. It’s not the only factor, but it’s an important one for us.
