Our Sexual Wasteland

Sep 27, 2013

Speaking and Using the Truth

Dec 28, 2012

One of the greatest weapons we have at our disposal is often not even used. We allow lies and falsehoods to go unchecked, which in turn enslave people, destroy nations, and dehumanise societies. Indeed, the history of the twentieth century

Depression and suicide bids

As I said, a poor self-image, a life being destroyed by drugs, a few cases of unrequited love, and I was pretty depressed for much of

Jun 27, 2012

(This is the third of a four-part article)

A Review of Still the Best Hope. By Dennis Prager

Jun 15, 2012

Broadside Books, 2012.

The Lefties are going to really hate this book. You see, almost everything the Left hates or denigrates or minimises, such as God, freedom, personal responsibility, small government, family, hard work, patriotism, and so on is defended

A Conflict of Ideologies
