The spirit of Jezebel, fatherless America, and mass shootings

Aug 20, 2019 by

by Michael Brown, Christian Post: I want to tread very carefully here since, as I write these words, families are in agony. Lives have been torn apart. People have been taken away in the prime of life. Even little children have been slaughtered in cold blood. The devastation produced by mass shootings is indescribable. But it is for that very reason we cannot be silent. We must continue to focus on one of the common denominators in these shootings: the murderers largely come from fatherless...

Poverty doesn’t cause crime, Mr Mayor. Criminals do

Aug 17, 2019 by

by David Fraser, The Conservative Woman: A FEW weeks ago the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, released a report showing how the poorest areas of London are the most likely to see the highest levels of violence, with 74 killings this year alone.

The implication we are invited to accept is that poverty is a driver of crime and...

The real cause of knife crime? It’s hidden in a fog of cannabis smoke

Mar 10, 2019 by

by Peter Hitchens, Mail on Sunday: Does any powerful person in this country ever thin k? It has been quite astonishing watching the alleged debate about knife crime over the past few days. Not a single thought took place. There is a very good reason why people generally don’t stab each other. Normal, sane humans recoil from the very idea of plunging a sharp blade into a fellow creature, let alone driving it so deep that it is bound to kill. The crime has been rare because nobody wanted to...

We’re at a fork in the road to hell

Mar 8, 2019 by

by Robert James, The Conservative Woman: […]  The Establishment in this country has no intention nor expectation of solving the knife crime problem. It cannot have because it knows, or at least its more intelligent and cunning members know, that it is forbidden even to talk about the real causes of the problem, almost all of which have been caused by so-called progressive politics, to the ideas of which all main British political parties subscribe. To contradict received wisdom on crime...
