Instead of treating mentally ill Audrey Elizabeth Hale, society told her she was a victim and, thereby, fed her delusions. There were dire consequences.
FROM THE DECEMBER ISSUE
The public discourse in both hemispheres seems to be legitimizing the coming of World War III. These are interesting—if not terrifying—times.
The October 7 attacks by Hamas were not justified, but neither was the Israeli response. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has changed little since I first witnessed it 40 years ago.
Grover Cleveland, in all of his offices, from the first day to the last, steadfastly followed the principles of Jeffersonian conservatism.
In Past Lives, circumstances separate two love-struck tweens but a supernatural fate reunites them. The theme disturbs the western sensibility that favors alternatives and individual autonomy.
The common notion that white settlers invented scalping is nonsense.
Kennedy mythology will be on full display for the 60th anniversary of JFK's murder. Despite all the adulation, the real JFK was a man who can only be described with a four-letter word: Fake.
South African courts—and western media—have ripped the mask off hate speech laws. Hate speech is not only acceptable but encouraged for anyone with eternal victim status.
As so often is the case, victim advocacy groups only voice concern for victims when their attackers are considered political opponents.
Is today’s life of convenience really better, more human, and more fulfilling than the kind of lives our forebears lived in which the struggle of everyday life pointed always to the sacred?
The left’s hashtag activism about sexual violence is just pure politics meant to manipulate female voters into believing that Democratic policies protect women.
While Sen. Tuberville failed in his effort to curtail the Pentagon’s new plan to subsidize soldier abortions, his willingness to stand alone in opposition to the deep state juggernaut is inspiring.
Statutes of limitations are necessary to ensure defendants get fair trials. Politically motivated suspensions hurt more than just their intended targets and are incompatible with justice.
The United States is not Israel. Understanding that does not make you an anti-Semite or even hostile to Israel. It’s just reality: a concept that appears increasingly elusive to GOP leadership and establishment conservatives.
Political scientists say presidential elections are referendums on the incumbent. If that’s the case next year, none of the Biden team’s grounds for optimism will matter.
Leagues like the NHL have made their moral stances clear—their millionaire star players may not engage in sports gambling, but hockey fans are subjected to over two hours of gambling propaganda during each broadcast.
One of Henry Kissinger’s greatest virtues was his political realism and his resistance to America’s messianic urge, relentlessly promoted by both neoconservatives and neoliberals, to dominate the world as global hegemon.
Ironically, a new documentary about Tom Wolfe, “Radical Wolfe,” lacks the radical thrust it laments is missing today and that Wolfe himself had.
If not Biden, the next batter up is Harris. The die is cast.
Since the start of the Biden administration, 1.7 million “gotaways” have entered the country. Many of them are running away from justice in their home countries and bringing their criminality to the United States.
According to the centrist, hawkish wing of the GOP, even far-left Democrats are “traditional” pseudo-conservatives as long as they are pro-Israel.
“Justice” in America today is an arrangement where the living and dead are judged to be guilty or innocent on the basis of race.
The path to the nomination for anyone other than Trump is exceedingly narrow. Voter composition and mobilization efforts will be key for Trump’s rivals.
No one is persuaded when the media describes as an Irish national an Algerian man who stabs Irish children. The gaslighting may only radicalize people in the end.
Do not serve a regime that hates you. When it comes to the American military, it is time for the nation’s spirited young men to meme on, stand up, and drop out.
This Thanksgiving we’d do well to revisit this American classic. “Don’t lose your goodness!” this film firmly instructs us.
