Traditional Liberalism Under Unprecedented Pressure

 

For most political analysts, the liberal democratic malaise, so often discussed, is a byproduct of the liberal world order’s success. While it is easy to observe the evolution of events in the post-Cold War period as a sign of collapse, that, in my judgment, would be a mistake. Recent challenges should certainly not be underestimated, […]

The Karl Marx Legacy

 

The bicentennial anniversary of Karl Marx on May 5 came and went. This marginal thinker who became a curious voice of the disenchanted has haunted the globe with puerile economic analysis that a class of people has embraced as its own. Curiously Marxism is a plagiarized version of early Christian doctrine relying on antipathy to […]

A Thanksgiving Message

 

Each year prior to Thanksgiving I try to express the reasons for my gratitude in print. This year is difficult. The republic I love is facing new and formidable challenges. A hostile minority is so embittered it has adopted the violent approach of the former Brown Shirts. In some circles, civil discourse is impossible. Universities […]

The Future of the ‘New Spain’

 

For a considerable period, Islamists have argued they will defeat the West in the bedroom. Without swords, guns or conquest, Muslims will simply overwhelm Europe with a birthrate that outpaces the indigenous population. Bat Ye’or described this condition as the emergence of “Eurabia.” Evicted five centuries ago by Christians, the Arabs are back in Spain […]

A Strategy for Coping With Islamic Terror

 

Last week the United Kingdom was the site of a terror attack with at least 30 injured. This followed the terror attack where innocent Spaniards were killed in Barcelona. Terrorism is here, an ugly feature of modern life. Some apologists contend that the precipitating impulse is Western foreign policy or colonialism, but militant Muslims cannot […]

The Lying Heart of The Left

 

The idiocy of the hard left is in full display in a Huffington Post article by Jessica Schulberg entitled: “Sebastian Gorka, Who Has Downplayed Threat of White Supremists, Still Teaches Marines About Terrorism.” Ms. Schulberg claims that Sebastian Gorka, an adviser to President Trump, has been overly critical of Islam, yet dismissive of a white nationalist threat. […]

Postmodern Assumptions

 

Arguably the factor that militates against the sound and reasonable examination of issues on a global scale is a postmodern view that truth does not exist. In an age of internet exchanges opinions are as true as facts. Here is the efflorescence of John Paul Sartre’s view that intention is all that counts. If you […]

‘The End of…’ Scenario

 

While the extremes of contemporary partisanship have grown, there is a curious area of political overlap in the age of Trump: Left and Right have embraced “the end of …” theme. Clearly there is justification for an outpouring of pessimism. President Trump has put enormous pressure on political allies to enhance their financial contribution to […]

Buy American May Not Be American

 

President Trump asserts with patriotic fervor that his administration stands for America First, a commendable but somewhat ambiguous concept. What gives it meaning is the idea that Americans “buy American.” Presumably when facing consumer choices, Americans should look for a label that keeps them at home. The problem with the concept is that it defies […]

Existentialism’s Deadly Burden on Freedom

 

The brilliant scholar Lawrence Mead in several articles and an unpublished book makes the case that freedom imposes a burden that is not well understood by those who migrate to the United States where freedom is a requisite of civic participation. This, of course, isn’t a novel observation, but as I see it the burden […]
