If you want to understand the moral sickness at the heart of leftism, read the first paragraph of the most recent column by Washington Post columnist E. J. Dionne: It's never right to call other human beings "animals." It's not something we should even have to debate. No matter how debased the behavior
The most remarkable thing about the title of this column is that not one reader will think it's a joke. That, my friends, is further proof of the low esteem in which most Americans hold our universities. The Left has rendered our universities, in the description of Harvard professor Steven Pinker, laughingstocks. As
There is more knowledge available today than ever before in history. But few would argue people are wiser than ever before. On the contrary, many of us would argue that we are living in a particularly foolish time—a period that is largely wisdom-free, especially among those with the most knowledge: the best educated.
The dominant force in America and many other Western countries today is fear of the Left. This is a result of the fact that the most dynamic religion of the past 100 years has been neither Christianity nor Islam. It has been leftism. Whoever does not recognize this does not understand the contemporary
The only way to save Western civilization is to convince more people that leftism—not liberalism—is a nihilistic force. Quite literally, whatever the Left touches it ruins. So, here is a partial listing of the damage done by the Left and the Democratic Party: The most obvious—and, therefore, the one more and Americans can
Many years ago, I attended a dinner at a wealthy man's New York City condo with, among others, one of the most prominent and influential conservatives in American life. I admired this man then and I admire him now (he has since passed on). He was a major force for good in America.
Some years ago, I wrote a column about adultery and politicians. In light of the Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal interviews concerning their alleged (and probable) affairs with President Donald Trump, it is time to revisit the subject. I do not agree with those—Right or Left, religious or secular—who contend that adultery invalidates
In decades of writing columns, I have taken risks but perhaps never one as big this: writing a column to and about parents who have lost a child. I can well imagine that the first reaction of any parent who has lost a child will be: Why does this guy, who hasn't gone
At The City College of New York in the late 1930s, my father, an Orthodox Jew, wrote his senior class thesis on anti-Semitism in America. He delineated common realities of the era, such as Jews' admission to law firms, country clubs and colleges being denied or restricted, and various other manifestations of popular
Why does the Left oppose allowing a small number of highly trained teachers and other adults who work at schools to arm themselves? When asked, their response is consistent: "It's a crazy idea." And "We need fewer guns, not more guns." A New York Times editorial offered the following argument against having any
