Welcome to the website of writer and journalist
Cathy Young

Here you will find my columns for The Boston Globe and Reason, articles from other publications, information about my books, as well as my new blog.

I write on a wide variety of topics, from gender issues to academic politics to the debate over religion and secularism in America to the struggle for democracy and the Communist legacy in Russia. One of my goals in my writing is to cut through left/right stereotypes and focus on the issues from an independent perspective. My politics can be described as libertarian/conservative -- leaning more libertarian on some issues and more conservative on others.

I am a strong believer in individual rights and limited government. I believe in judging people as individuals, not on the basis of membership in a group. I believe that reality trumps ideology, left or right. I believe Western democracy, flawed through it is, is worth defending. Perhaps most important, I believe that it should be possible for honest and intelligent people to disagree on political issues and respect each other.

And now, without further ado, I present...

The Y-Files.
