“Walls are immoral.” “Walls don’t work.” “Walls are unjust.” How often have you heard these and similar statements made by those on the left? Like so many moral platitudes, they may give warm fuzzy feelings to the ones making such
With a new year upon us, what can we expect? I refer here to the bigger picture – not whether you might get a new job, get married, or move house. Will things get better politically, socially, culturally, morally and
In ordinary times we can get by with ordinary men – and women. But we no longer live in ordinary times. We live in extraordinarily dark and evil times. And during such times the ordinary will just not cut it.
As you might be aware, a week before Christmas two Scandinavian students were murdered while hiking in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. They were: 28-year-old Norwegian Maren Ueland and 24-year-old Dane Louisa Vesterager Jespersen. The horrific deaths (including decapitation) were
Yesterday I wrote an article about the state’s sexualisation of our children. It looked at how so many leaders, politicians and sexperts have declared war on our children, and are using things like “Safe Schools” programs and comprehensive sex education
The prefix “trans” means to go beyond, or over, or across. Today the transgender movement is having a great run at going well beyond the truth. And this is primarily being done by not allowing any debate on the issue.
We hear a lot nowadays about certain sorts of people being labelled “provocative”. Almost always it is heard on the leftist mainstream media, and almost always it refers to conservatives, be they religious or non-religious conservatives.
A half century ago America and much of the West was engulfed in the counterculture movement. It had other names, such as the hippy movement, the Woodstock generation, the cultural revolution, the peace and love generation, and the radical 60s.
History is full of surprises. That includes the big picture as well as the finer details. Nations can come and go. Nations can change. Sure, they often change for the worse, and many will disappear into oblivion. But sometimes a
Anyone who follows American politics knows how important it is to get the right sort of president in, because – among other things – he is the one who nominates new Supreme Court of the United States’ justices when one
I have used the phrase “the death of the West” or something like it plenty of times now. And for good reason: the West has been in deep decline for decades now, and one wonders if this is reversible. It
I told an audience yesterday morning that a good definition of truth is “that which corresponds to reality”. If there is a major mismatch between what you say and the way the world actually works, you might not be speaking
There is nothing wrong with being concerned about the wellbeing of your neighbour. But there is plenty wrong in thinking that more Big Government is the answer. Plenty of the social justice warriors (SJWs) on the Left never lift a
Life in this world is filled with tears. And if this life was all there was, then this would be terribly tragic indeed. But the Christian believes there is much more than this life, and that one day all tears
Back in 1991 I wrote these words: “No matter how caring and loving, a surrogate care-giver can never replace a mother – or father – in providing security, love and a sense of self-worth to young children. Yet in a
Reading like a Who’s Who of Hollywood actresses, the number of women who have come forward and claimed that they were raped or sexually assaulted and harassed by film producer Harvey Weinstein is now well over 60 and still climbing.
Europe is in a real bad way. Secularism, immorality, porous borders, an inability to understand Islam for what it is, the rapid decline of Christianity, a loss of purpose and identity – these and other factors have resulted in a
I have plenty of sparring partners in the culture wars, but those I often find to be the most distasteful and antagonistic are radical libertarians who also claim to be conservatives and Christians. Um, no, you cannot be both, as
