There are many ways in which to divide humanity -- the decent and the indecent, the happy and the unhappy, the cowardly and the courageous, those who lead and those who follow, etc.
Two major divisions that are less often noted but highly consequential are between those who want to control others and those who have little interest in ...Read more
There is little that reveals the immorality and dishonesty of the left more than its labeling the term "colorblind" racist.
Here are just a few of countless examples:
The University of California publishes a list of "microaggressions" -- terms and ideas it considers racist -- that white people should avoid using. The list includes the term "...Read more
How does a leader decide what to do? The most logical response is: "Cui bono?" -- "Who benefits?" -- from the decision. If some policy benefits your country most, you should, within moral bounds, pursue it. If your enemies benefit most, you should avoid it.
I'd be curious to learn what answer proponents of America leaving Afghanistan -- ...Read more
Remember John Lennon's silly song, "Imagine"?
Well, here's my (much shorter) version.
Imagine if some of the biggest cities in America seceded from their states. Imagine Illinois without Chicago, Pennsylvania without Philadelphia, California without Los Angeles or San Francisco, New York state without New York City, or Texas without Houston, ...Read more
I wrote about the moral, diplomatic, international and American tragedy of abandoning Afghanistan a few months ago, so here I will address only the comment by Secretary of State Antony Blinken on ABC's "This Week" -- and what it says about our country.
Commenting on the American helicopters picking up Americans from the roof of the U.S. embassy...Read more
In my last column, I published comments written by New York Times subscribers about how proud they were of their children for deciding not to have children of their own. Though they acknowledged how much they ached to be grandparents, they nevertheless reveled in the fact that this would never happen.
Why did these parents take so much pride in...Read more
This past weekend, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd added another column to the myriad irrational and hysterical pieces about the "existential threat" climate change allegedly poses to human life.
As I do after almost every piece I read on the internet, I read comments submitted by readers.
One provided me with an epiphany.
It was a ...Read more
How many examples could one give to show what a sick world left-wing activists, the media and the Democrats -- the left's political party -- have wrought? The number is equal to the number of policies they advocate.
There is no more obvious example than their position on the display of a penis in front of girls and women.
No issue -- with the ...Read more
Some think tank or polling organization should ask 1,000 Americans: What is the best thing most Americans can do to make the country better?
Presumably, those most influenced by their schooling and by the media would answer something along the lines of: "fight racism" or "work to reduce inequality." Whatever the specific answer, most young ...Read more
As many observers have noted, staying safe has become a religion. "Safetyism," as it is sometimes called, like all religions, places what it values -- in this case, being safe -- above other values. Safetyism explains the willingness of Americans to give up their most cherished values -- including liberty -- in the name of safety for the last ...Read more
If America is systemically racist, why have millions of blacks from Africa and the Caribbean come to this country over the past 50 years? Why would they and many millions more want to move from all-black societies to a white-dominated, racist one?
This is a question every black and white leftist should be asked. After all, no Jews moved to ...Read more
