The rebirth of a communist hydra – and the craven Tories acted as midwife

Jun 17, 2020 by

by Robert James, The Conservative Woman: THE refusal of the Conservative Party to interest itself in the culture wars that have been rumbling on for decades is a strategic error that the public continues to pay for heavily. The latest battle in the long war – described by Peter Hitchens as the Abolition of Britain – took place last week, with mass protests and the vandalising of statues and desecration of war memorials. The chain of events which started with the horrible death of George Floyd...

Chernobyl and the sanctity of truth

Apr 26, 2020 by

by Julian Mann, The Conservative Woman: THE Sky drama Chernobyl would be morally powerful enough in normal times. But watching it for the first time on DVD under the present lockdown made it even more so. The five-part series, broadcast last year, shows how the nuclear disaster at the Chernobyl power plant in 1986 in the former Soviet Ukraine was totalitarian Leninism taken to its logical moral conclusion. One scene especially illustrated how Leninism as practised in the Soviet Union was a...

by Robin Schumacher, Christian Post: If you’re someone who thinks Christians aren’t persecuted much in today’s world, I have a challenge for you.

Are Chinese communists lying about number of babies born? They’ve got every reason to

Jan 23, 2020 by

by Steven Mosher, LifeSite: The most populous country on earth has been committing demographic suicide for years with its ‘one-child’ policy. China’s National Bureau of Statistics just announced that 14.65 million babies were born in China last year. It also claimed that China’s population continued to grow, reaching 1.4 billion by the end of 2019, up from 1.39 billion the year before. Both claims are probably false. The real number of births is lower, probably much lower. As for...

Communism’s war on Christianity and Islam

Nov 25, 2019 by

By Daniel Kalder, UnHerd: The Soviet Union’s long campaign against religion anticipated Dawkins and Hitchens. The anti-religion campaigns of Richard Dawkins and co. seem like a modern phenomenon, very much a 21st century internet sort-of thing. But, like pretty much every social trend, it’s all been done before, with the same arguments and counter-arguments regurgitated, and on numerous occasions. The most vicious and sustained of these campaigns began around a century ago, part of a...

Why Did the Berlin Wall Fall?

Nov 9, 2019 by

By Barbara J. Elliott, The Imaginative Conservative: The Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain seemed to be permanent fixtures of the political landscape of Europe after 1961. But to everyone’s surprise, the Berlin Wall opened on November 9, 1989. This stunning event triggered a chain reaction throughout Eastern Europe, accelerating a process that had begun a decade earlier. Using a little poetic license, one could claim that what took ten years in Poland took ten months in Hungary, ten weeks in...
