gravity be viewed as a separate entity, an "invisible force," thus enabling him to quantify it and do the math. He didn't argue, BTW, that he was providing a "neutral" description of reality, but that it would be fruitful to view gravity through a mathematical lens (in the opening passages of the Principia). The means of empiricism rely on objectification, and this treats objects as unambiguously distinct from one another, and hence countable and mathematizable. What Newton did was to objectify gravity, and this led to much empowerment of modern science.

Now that census data show -- for the first time in American history -- the number of white babies born exceeded by the number of babies born to non-white minorities the question is: What does this mean for the future of American society?

Politically, it means that minorities who traditionally vote overwhelmingly for Democrats can ensure that the country veers ever further to the left over the years, making America more like the welfare states of Europe, whose unsustainable spending led ultimately to financial crises and widespread riots.

But this is not strictly a matter of whites versus non-whites....
