Did Your Child Return From College a Better Person?

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

When assessing America's or any of the Western world's universities -- wondering whether you should send your child to one; whether you should pay for a child to attend one; whether you should go into great debt to attend one; whether you should donate money to one; and related questions -- it would seem that the single most important question...Read more

Leftism makes people meaner: Reflections on the torture of Paul Manafort

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

The sadistic treatment of Paul Manafort illustrates something I have believed since I attended graduate school in the 1970s and saw the behavior of left-wing students: Leftism makes people meaner.

There are kind and mean conservatives and kind and mean liberals. Neither liberalism nor conservatism makes people kinder or meaner. But this is not ...Read more

The left's war on Christianity and traditional American values are what cause mass shootings

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

This past weekend, Americans learned of another mass shooting, this time by an employee who decided to murder as many of the people he had worked with for years as possible. As of this writing, the murder toll is 12 people.

Every American asks why. What was the killer's motive? When we read there is "no known motive," we are frustrated. Human ...Read more

Godless American colleges continue to descend into left-wing madness

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

Most Americans are not aware how morally and intellectually destructive American colleges -- and, increasingly, high schools and even elementary schools -- have become. So, they spend tens of thousands after-tax dollars to send their sons and daughters to college.

But today, to send your child to college is to play Russian roulette with their ...Read more

The liberals in Philadelphia are committed to dismantling American and Western civilization

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

When most Americans think of Philadelphia -- although probably fewer today than ever before, given the low level of history education in American schools -- they probably think of the founding of the United States, the Liberty Bell and the city's nickname, the City of Brotherly Love.

Having been to Philadelphia at least 20 times, I am among the...Read more

The Left is destroying America by turning us away from the biblical view

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

At PragerU, we have released about 400 videos on virtually every subject outside of the natural sciences and math. Along with 2 billion views, the videos have garnered tens of thousands of comments. So we have a pretty good handle on what people most love and most hate. For example, any video defending America or Israel inevitably receives many ...Read more

American Jews are ethically leftist and love the Times, so their anti-Semitic cartoon gets a pass

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

Last week, The New York Times published a cartoon so anti-Semitic that Bret Stephens wrote in his Times column that it was "an image that, in another age, might have been published in the pages of Der Sturmer." Der Sturmer was the Nazis' major anti-Semitic newspaper.

A Times columnist charging the Times with publishing a Nazi-like cartoon is ...Read more

Hillary and Obama's Easter tweets show how much 'The Left' hates Christianiaity

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

Sometimes, a few sentences tell you more about a person -- and, more importantly, an ideology -- than a learned thesis. That is the case with tweets from Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama two days ago in response to the mass murder of more than 300 Christians and others in Sri Lanka.

Their tweets are worth serious analysis because they reveal a ...Read more

Western Christianity, civilization is burning along with Notre Dame

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

The symbolism of the burning of Notre Dame Cathedral, the most renowned building in Western civilization, the iconic symbol of Western Christendom, is hard to miss.

It is as if God Himself wanted to warn us in the most unmistakable way that Western Christianity is burning -- and with it, Western civilization.

Every major Western (and one major...Read more

Women have to overcome emotions and malcontentedness to mature into good women

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

I have decided to finally read what is widely regarded as the literary work that unleashed the modern feminist movement, Betty Friedan's "The Feminine Mystique."

I am halfway through the book, and I find it to be a well-written cri de coeur (cry from the heart). Historically speaking, there was always much to lament regarding the status ...Read more

The left's rejection of God and the Bible is destroying America

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

Nothing keeps me religious more than the left, not even religion itself.

I am not even particularly "spiritual." My religiosity is overwhelmingly rational (the title of my Bible commentary is "The Rational Bible"). I believe in God because creation rationally suggests a Creator.

The force that has most propelled me to religion is the great (...Read more

Assume the left lies and you will discover the truth

From the Right / Dennis Prager /

From the beginning, I repeatedly said the charge that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election was a lie. The president's description of it as a "witch hunt" was accurate.

I regularly acknowledged that I was putting my credibility on the line by stating that it was all a...Read more
