Time Flies When You’re Torching Synagogues

Prefatory Warnings: If you think “Jew” means “Israel,” you are confusing humanity with geopolitics. If you think everything Israel does is pure and good, you are no longer thinking rationally. If you think everything Israel does is purely evil, you are projecting. If you think global Islamism is a false flag threat (created by The Joos, you see), you are...

Feminists on the Injustice of Pregnancy

Korea’s recently-elected progressive government has announced plans to begin “research” on the country’s restrictive abortion laws, which, of course, is another way of saying they are going to get the ball rolling on legalizing abortion. This initiative is merely an effort to bring the letter of the law into sync with the spirit of national decay, since many thousands of...

Why Do I Keep Calling Them “Progressives”?

As expected, my recent American Thinker article, “The Progressive Psychology of Exploiting a Crisis,” garnered many harrumphs from readers insisting that I stop using that danged lyin’ word, “progressive,” when the people I’m referring to are actually “regressives,” communists, or socialists who don’t promote progress at all! Sorry, but I’m sticking to my guns here — and here’s why. “Progressive”...

The Progressive Psychology of Exploiting a Crisis

[The following article, which originally appeared at American Thinker, is an extended rumination developed out of my short take, posted earlier here in Limbo, regarding the American Left’s response to the Las Vegas mass shooting.] Within hours of a man carrying out a horrifyingly successful mass shooting in Las Vegas, in which the death toll as of this writing is...

What the Charlie Gard Case Was NEVER About

In civilization’s ongoing battle against the advance of progressive authoritarianism, the story of Charlie Gard — may he rest in peace — is an object lesson in the danger of unclear principles, and the value of clear ones. The defenders of the despotism of socialized medicine have a vested interest in trying to persuade you that the Charlie Gard case...

RIP, Charlie Gard, and thank you

Unfortunately, Charlie Gard has died. Normally, we lament the loss of a baby by saying things like, “It’s so unfair that he never had the chance to accomplish anything or live a meaningful human life.” Not so in this case. For while Charlie was obviously deprived of the opportunity to fully experience life — and I mean deprived by his...

Charlie Gard’s Parents Give Up — And You’re Next

Charlie Gard’s parents, stonewalled by their government and the Euro-socialist high command for five months, their child effectively kidnapped by the State, have finally been forced to accept that it is now too late to hope that their baby might be saved. They have therefore withdrawn their application to take him to an American hospital for experimental treatment. He will...

Parents vs. Paternalists: The Charlie Gard Case

Many important questions are raised by the case of ten-month-old Briton Charlie Gard, sentenced to death against the wishes of his parents who had raised money for a desperate last hope of life-saving treatment in America. For months, those parents fought a losing battle, all the way to the European Court of Human Rights, to invoke the human tradition of...

Happy Canada Day, So to Speak

Canada, the nation that brought socialized medicine to North America — i.e., that first crumbled one of freedom’s pillars, the right of self-ownership, in the modern, liberty-engendered New World — and spent the better part of sixteen years under the leadership of a Castro-loving, Maoist-sympathizing progressive pragmatist, Pierre Trudeau, is now governed nationally by a new generation of less pragmatic, more ideologically...

TrumpCare Symbolic of History’s Progressive Ratchet

Once again, the American political center has been shifted leftward, as a Republican President and Congress have demonstrated their principled opposition to a progressive program by promising to keep half of it forever. The House has passed, and President Trump signed, what Right Scoop accurately calls an “Obamacare reform package.” Not the promised repeal, and not even a dubious “replacement,” but...
