Photo by Andras Vas on Unsplash Magnum Ice Cream has apologized for an ad on Spotify which compared the “guilty pleasure” of eating one of its desserts to being arrested for being gay. Said the narrator in the ad, which aired in the UK: “A hug for my boyfriend—that’s my guilty pleasure.” And the punchline: “Because in my country, just a simple hug with the man I love could send me to prison for more than 10 years.” That didn’t go over too well with a lot of people. I know most of...

With the U.S. and Russia pulling out of a key nuclear weapons pact – and beginning to develop new nuclear weapons – plus Iran tensions and North Korea again test-launching missiles, the global threat to civilization is high. Some fear a new nuclear arms race. That threat is serious – but...
