Sex Workers of America Unite!

Leftist academics in America must be salivating over the current “socialist option” emerging in politics. The indoctrination they have imposed on students is paying off as we see in the example of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who proudly calls herself a “democratic socialist.” But Ocasio-Cortez is not the only millennial who espouses a socialist political

Saving the American Dream

It was winter and the streets of Vienna were covered with snow. The plows were busy for most of the night, and I watched them go up and down the street. I couldn’t sleep because earlier that day, I had had an interview at the American embassy that would determine whether I would

Revenge of the Feminists

So it’s come to this. “Why can’t we hate men?” asks Suzanna Danuta Walters, a professor of sociology and director of the awkwardly named Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program at Northwestern University.

Recall the paper's series on the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution that covered almost every aspect of human life through a socialist lens, including sex. According to the Times, women under Communism

American Identity is Not Globalist

In a column this week for The Washington Post, Michael Gerson laments the passing, at least in his imagination, of a time when America was interested in helping and cooperating with other nations. “Why is our political moment not just pathetic but also traumatic?” writes Gerson. He goes on to claim the presidency

Chilling Sommers: Another Blow to Discourse

Schooling for Totalitarianism

Marching in protest has become the activity du jour in America. The latest planned protest is “March for Our Lives,” scheduled for March 24 in Washington, D.C. and at high schools across the nation.
