Nut Cases

The New Republic is notorious for its contrarian take on things. You might frequently see such articles in the magazine as…

The Case Against New Ideas
by Jonathan Chait
The case against Sarah Vowell
by Keelin McDonell
The case for abolishing the CIA
by John B. Judis

But today, TNR whipped out its most contrarian yet:

Yeah, screw them damn kids. That whole “nurture” thing is completely overrated.

Under the tutelage of Franklin Foer what other contrarian takes can we expect?

  • “Water: Why It’s Overrated.”
  • “Why Oxygen Is For Wussies.”
  • “War: What Isn’t It Good For?”
