When Did America Forget That It’s America?

In today’s postmodern world, when asserting the superiority of liberal democracy over other regimes seems like the quaint relic of a colonialist past, even the United States appears to have lost the courage of its convictions. Continue reading

Riding the Tiger

Ferguson, and a thousand cities like it, have fallen down the rabbit hole because they have disregarded justice and are deficient in the moral accountability that must accompany human dignity. Continue reading

The Education of Our Children (According to Jefferson)

An enlightened citizenry is indispensable for the proper functioning of a republic. Self-government is not possible unless the citizens are educated sufficiently to enable them to exercise oversight. It is therefore imperative that the nation see to it that a suitable education be provided for all its citizens. (Thomas Jefferson) Continue reading

Story-Killers: How the Common Core Destroys Minds and Souls

Common Core is the deliberate replacement of teaching critical thought with what amounts to sociopolitical programming. The fact that it’s being perpetrated against children makes it one of the most despicable, immoral acts in America over the last century. Continue reading

Armstrong Predicts the West’s Eventual Demise

This Is the Age of Civil Unrest … All governments had better open their eyes for we are on the brink of a major convergence between both the Cycle of Civil Unrest, Civil War & Revolution and International War. Both of these models converge and as I pointed out at the Cycles of War Conference, this is the first time we have seen this convergence since the 1700s. This is no plain modern event with civil unrest erupting because of an interconnected world. Continue reading

Frederick Douglass Foundation Condemns Installation of Common Core and the Nationalization of Education

The Frederick Douglass Foundation released this statement on Common Core education in 2013. We think it is worth revisiting as the American States begin to wake up, listen to their constituents, and push back against the nationalization of education in this country. Continue reading

Epic Fail: The Crisis in American Education

Our students’ epidemic failure in class, however, is only symptomatic of a much larger issue. It is academia’s approach to teaching and learning that has utterly failed in its responsibility to these children. Further, the politicizing of public education by self-styled experts and administrators alike is as much the cause as anything. Continue reading

The Case Against Public Education

If public education is allowed to survive, all efforts to resuscitate the inert husk of modern civilization will fail. It is time to unravel the most wasteful and destructive entitlement program of all. Cancer cells do not divide into healthy cells. A corrupted, power-intoxicated political class will not willingly raise a freedom-loving, self-reliant populace. Governments must no longer be allowed to pre-determine their nations’ fates, by mass producing the populace that serves their interests. Continue reading

Tibor Machan: A Note on Socialism as Elitism

We are asked to believe that some people are inherently different from the rest of us. We are told that the select group − the leaders of socialist/egalitarian governments via their schemes of distribution and equalization − is immune from the errors of the rest of us. That the likes of Ralph Nader, Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden, et al., are really inherently better and wiser folk than are we all is what the citizenry is supposed to accept! Continue reading

The People Speak: C.L. Bryant

The Democrat party, the progressive liberals, have been very successful in co-opting the emotional issues of the day. The truth of the matter is those very issues have led the same group of people who voted this president and voted for him religiously into a mindset and to a culture of bondage. Continue reading

Tibor Machan on American Statism

The right approach is, of course, one that acknowledges that human beings are a species and have a common nature up to a point. But it also acknowledges that a distinctive aspect of the human being is its individuality! It is confirmed every minute within human communities, of course, as millions present ideas of their own by which to carry on their living. (Even Mr. Gass testifies to this by presenting his own particular take on the collectivist idea!) Continue reading

Obama’s World of Social Justice

As earlier statements in his career indicate, Obama’s vision of paternalistic governance is the view he brought with him to the presidency. In 1998, as a first-term Illinois state senator, he argued that in order to ensure that “nobody is left behind,” government systems must be more efficiently structured to “pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution.” Continue reading

The People Speak: Elia Kazan

The American entertainment industry’s partnership with the political far left didn’t begin with Oliver Stone, Susan Sarandon, or Janeane Garofalo. It goes way back, most notably to the 1930s and 40s (the heyday of Frank Marshall Davis). Noting this fact, … Continue reading

Scalia vs. Thomas Jefferson on Secession

Contemporary opinion, including that of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, says a state’s right to secede died with the hundreds of thousands of bloodied victims of the Civil War and that the sentiment behind the dozens of petitions on the White House website seeking permission for most of the 50 individual governments to leave the union will be fruitless.

But historians would note that Thomas Jefferson, a “pole star among political philosophers because he based his politics on the eternal, self-evident, fundamental truths that all men are created free and equal and that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inherent and inalienable rights, among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” believed states have a right to leave the U.S. Continue reading

Fact Check: Forward!

The provocative account focuses on the worldview of Communist Bill Ayers, the so-called Occupy movement, and the Marxist-in Chief himself, Barack Obama. It concludes with a pointed comparison of Mr. Obama’s “Forward” campaign slogan with the infamous themes of past Communist-Socialist-Marxist propaganda efforts throughout history. It turns out the claim has provoked some in the leftist coffee house crowd, plus some well-intentioned yet disbelieving rank-and-file Democrats. Liberals have long had an aversion to the S-word (socialism). And so they have demanded proof, for which we are only happy to oblige as it warrants another opportunity to make the point.
