Greatness Agenda

Demographics and the American Prospect

Conservatives might quibble over the root cause of minority voting patterns, whistle past the graveyard counting their change, and settle for losing nobly, or they can use what time remains to wage a full-spectrum war on this front.

Britain’s Great Emotional Divide

Jeremy Corbyn’s candidacy reveals the true faultline of post-2016 politics. Gone are the defunct Left and Right. The battle isn't even between the modish “national" and "global.” It's a battle of reason versus emotion.

Fiona Hill’s Un-American Idea of America

Hill sees America only as an idea that she and other elites represent. “America First” is not American, in her book, because it’s exclusionary and imagines America may have interests that diverge from the globalist consensus.

Prudence and Presidential Pardons

While it may sound strange to some, the idea of restraint in war helps to civilize a brutal human activity and to limit the descent of soldiers into barbarism. But war also gives rise to ambiguous situations.

The NBA and China’s ‘Thousand Talents Plan’

Like the NBA, universities are letting their immediate economic interests cloud their thinking. Unlike the NBA, they are being paid to train the spies who are stealing our crown jewels. Even worse, the U.S. government is providing the funding.

Espionage, Chinese Style

China has been siphoning off basic research funded by U.S. taxpayers—research that is already helping Beijing leapfrog the West both technically and militarily.

Make Alberta American?

From one perspective, it would be a no-brainer: Alberta’s entrance as the 51st state would consolidate U.S. power and prosperity on the North American continent, while better positioning the United States to compete for access and dominance in the Arctic.

Attack of the Groypers

The young men of the Right want real change. They want their country back. They want to fight a real culture war, not a facsimile of one.

Trump’s Common Sense on Foreign Policy

Instead of putting America’s vast economic power to work benefitting Xi and the ayatollahs, Trump is using America’s economic power against them; this is simply common sense. And, unsurprisingly, it is working.

Clearing the Air on the Right

The most interesting debates happening today in American political discourse are not between the Left and the Right, but rather within the Right. We should not shy away from our differences but embrace the dialogue in good faith and with the understanding that the best ideas and the best leaders will win, and the conservative movement will be better off as a result.
