The most frequent question people pose to me is: What can I/we do to fight back against the nihilistic anti-American destruction of virtually all the country's major institutions?
There is an answer.
The single best thing Americans can do to counter the left-wing attack on America -- against its freedoms, its schools, its families, its ...Read more
If you've seen videos of recent attacks on Jews in New York City, Los Angeles, London and elsewhere, you may have missed a very revealing aspect of those attacks. They were almost always -- as they have been for decades -- accompanied by curses such as, "F--- the Jews."
Now, given that the perpetrators are almost always Muslims -- whether ...Read more
When you meditate for a moment on what the left expects honest and decent people to believe, you confront the world of absurdities and lies in which we live.
The left demands we believe and announce that men menstruate and give birth, and that it is in no way unfair to girls and women when biological men compete in girls' and women's sports.
America is going through convulsions that may destroy it as the country we and the world have known for more than two centuries.
For all its flaws -- virtually all of which were not unique to America but universal throughout human civilization -- America has been regarded more than any other nation in modern times as a force for good in the ...Read more
Just as physicists look for equations to explain the natural world, I have always thought it useful to look for equations to explain human nature. For example, in my book on happiness, I offer this equation: U = I - R. Unhappiness = Image - Reality. The difference between the images we have for our life and the reality of our life is one way of ...Read more
In "Why the Jews?" my book on anti-Semitism, there is a chapter on anti-Americanism. My co-author, Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, and I long ago understood that many of the reasons for Jew-hatred and America-hatred were the same.
Among them are envy of success -- material, of course, but even more importantly, success in terms of influence. Another is...Read more
On March 23, Mohammad Anwar of Springfield, Virginia, a 66-year-old immigrant from Pakistan earning his living as an Uber Eats driver, was killed by two girls, ages 13 and 15. They carjacked Anwar, Tasered him and then, as he held on to the car (the source of his livelihood) in an attempt to stop them from stealing it, floored the gas pedal and ...Read more
When I see people walking outside, often alone with no one anywhere near them, wearing a mask, my primary reactions are disappointment and sadness.
I am disappointed because I expected better from my fellow Americans. I never thought most Americans would be governed by irrational fears and unquestioning obedience to authority. I have come to ...Read more
Conservatives often speak of Judeo-Christian values and how the current civil war in the United States and the rest of the West is essentially a battle between those values and the left, which rejects Judeo-Christian values.
They are right.
But they rarely explain what Judeo-Christian values are. Yet, without an explanation, mentioning Judeo-...Read more
If you rely on The New York Times, the Democratic Party or CNN -- they are interchangeable -- for your perception of reality, you now believe America is reeling from the latest expression of white supremacy: Anti-Asian racism.
It is a lie, the purpose of which is to:
a) Further demonize America.
b) Further demonize white Americans.
c) ...Read more
If one were to draw up a list of human needs, food and shelter would be at the top.
With great respect to Freudians, sex would not be No. 2.
The need for meaning would be second only to the need for food.
That meaning is more important to happiness than sex is easily shown. A great many people go long periods without sex, and while many of ...Read more
