Black Appraisals of Black Lives Matter – Part I

Sep 15, 2020 by

by Soeren Kern, Gatestone Institute: A previous series revealed the anti-American agenda of Black Lives Matter, which, under the guise of fighting racism, seeks to transform the United States into a communist dystopia. BLM’s leaders openly admit that they want to abolish the nuclear family, police, prisons and capitalism. BLM leaders have threatened to “burn down the system” if their demands are not met.

Right but Repulsive or Wrong but Wromantic?

Sep 15, 2020 by

by Melanie Phillips: One of the many paradoxes about our frightening culture wars is that western society, which constantly congratulates itself on being the acme of rationality and freedom, has in fact abandoned reason for emotion and freedom for coercion. We can see this on display all around us. It’s in the baleful grip of identity politics, based on the dogma that people’s feelings trump objective truth. It’s in the witch-hunts against ideas or opinions which dissent from approved...

Why the new inquisition came for David Hume

Sep 14, 2020 by

by Giles Fraser, UnHerd: Just as in the philosopher’s day, the zealots of the 21st century cannot understand human complexity. Until the past few days, and with the possible exception of a handful of minor academics rooting around for an obscure subject on which to write their PhDs, the question of David Hume’s racism was not one that detained many of those seriously interested in the great man’s contribution to knowledge.

The War on America

Sep 13, 2020 by

by Kevin Portteus, The American Mind: BLM and Antifa are determined to bring the country to its knees. We should act accordingly. In what has since become known as his first “major” speech, Abraham Lincoln famously warned the Young Men’s Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois in 1838 about the dangers of “mob rule.” As reprehensible as are the immediate consequences of mob rule, however, Lincoln’s larger strategy in the speech is to use our revulsion at the actions of the mob to draw our attention to...

American Worldview Inventory 2020 – ‘The Election is about worldview’

Sep 7, 2020 by

From Cultural Research Centre, Arizona Christian University: As the 2020 election nears, new research from the American Worldview Inventory 2020 shows a broad, deep gap in American political beliefs and behavior, rooted not in ideology or partisanship, but in fundamental differences in the worldview of voting-age adults being fueled by a national cultural shift away from the biblical worldview. Veteran researcher and author of the survey, Dr. George Barna, says the findings lead to...
