Is Racism Moral Now?

Is Racism Moral Now?

By Victor Davis Hanson | Racism is the deductive bias against, and often hatred of, an entire racial group. It is often birthed by dislike of particular individuals of a given group that supposedly justifies, by extension, disliking or indeed hating all of them. The popular reaction against this widespread toxic pathology shown African Americans birthed the anti-slavery movement, the Civil War, the resistance to Jim Crow, and the modern Civil Rights movement. But now there grows a strange… 

Who Made Our College Students into Ideological Monsters?

Who Made Our College Students into Ideological Monsters?

By Philip Carl Salzman | During my fifty years teaching anthropology at McGill University, my impression of undergraduate students was of reasonable young people, many of whom were seriously engaged in learning about the world and its peoples. Graduate students were fiercely focused on gaining professional status, were more ideologically militant than undergraduates, and were consistently on the wrong side of every political issue, for reasons I will discuss below. The rapidly increasing intellectual corruption in academia… 

The Equality Act is Watching You

The Equality Act is Watching You

By R. Albert Mohler, Jr. | Will America sacrifice religious freedom for the sake of newly constructed sexual and gender identity liberties? We will know the answer to that question in short order, and the prospects for preserving religious liberty hang in a dangerous political balance. The legislation known as the “Equality Act” represents the greatest present threat to religious liberty in the United States. The House of Representatives has passed the legislation twice—in 2019 and again in February of this year. The Democratic majority…

Can We Still Reason Together?

Can We Still Reason Together?

By Serena Sigillito and Robert P. George | Where there is a mutual commitment to truth and truth-seeking, relationships can be built between religious believers and secularists, and they can indeed reason together. The minimum condition is this: interlocutors, however wide and deep their substantive philosophical or other differences, need to share the conviction that business between them is to be conducted in the proper currency of intellectual discourse—namely, reasons, evidence,… 

Ever Ancient, Ever New

Ever Ancient, Ever New

By Bryan Kerns | Teaching Augustine on a college campus is an especially interesting experience these days. I get to expose students to Augustine, his life, world, thought, assumptions, and influence, which is reward enough, but I also get to watch them begin to question their own assumptions as they engage with this figure from the past who feels at once so distant and so close. To use the words of the great master himself: ever ancient, ever new. While preparing for class recently, I came across a chapter of…

Canceling Love in the Name of Love

Canceling Love in the Name of Love

By Peter J. Leithart | Not so long ago, we had to imagine these scenes of apocalyptic silence. No longer. We’ve lived them. Our streets have been emptied. Restaurants are closed, parks and playgrounds sealed off with police tape. Weddings and funerals are reduced or canceled, concert halls and museums vacant. For many, Thanksgiving and Christmas never happened. For months, most churches stopped meeting, and some still haven’t fully opened. We’ve operated by one great commandment… 

The Power of Thought

The Power of Thought

By Ben Sixsmith | Communism came to Hungary as the Iron Curtain lowered across Central and Eastern Europe. The communists lost the post-war elections but gained power with what they called “salami tactics”: dividing and conquering their democratic opponents. Upon his ascent, Mátyás Rákosi, an unpleasant little man who resembled Uncle Fester from the Addams Family, began a series of brutal crackdowns with the help of his sadists in the secret police, the State Protection Authority. One victim was Edith Bone. Born in Hungary, but possessing…

Identity Cancels Reality

Identity Cancels Reality

By Philip Carl Salzman | Our current monomaniacal obsession with identity was midwifed by postmodern theory. In the past, students of society and culture emulated science in theory and methodology, striving to offer objective, disinterested, and impartial knowledge about human life. Postmodernism attacked science and rejected the goal of objective knowledge about people, arguing that objectivity was impossible and that only subjectivity was possible. In anthropology, the weasel word was “interpretation,” with research being reduced to… 

Why National Greatness Matters

Why National Greatness Matters

By Christopher M. England | As the United States muddles through a global pandemic and the aftermath of a contested election, it is hard to avoid a sense that the country is now suffused by a spirit of grievance and revenge. Donald Trump’s call to “make America great again” has given rise to the cynical response, voiced by Andrew Cuomo and…
