While we fret about transgender girls in sports and rig up a billion-dollar industry to indoctrinate our corporate and government workers with critical race theory, around us the world keeps turning.

The way the world ends, T.S. Eliot reminds us, is “Not with a bang but a whimper.” But our…

Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic are the academy’s equivalent to the single-issue voter: too narrow-minded to see the bigger picture and too self-centered to put themselves in somebody else’s shoes.

Why is it that the Woke aimed to reduce six works of Dr. Seuss, known primarily as the author and…

Reading about Antifa, its modi operandi, its motives, and its insidious influences on our Western societies has been a long-time pre-occupation of yours…

Whatever problems we are facing, they require a course correction at most, not for us to dismantle the entire ship.

Rumors of an incident in my hometown spread like a wildfire this week. Someone came out on social media with a story from a black friend who claimed that she…

Justice Ginsburg’s unfortunately timed death serves as another depressing reminder how despicably polarized our body politic has become. In a period of just four hours it became obvious that few, if any, are even concerned with the Justice’s legacy anymore. …

Yours truly finished reading two books last week, each of which rather instructive in its own way. The first is Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s three-volume The Gulag Archipelago.
