What Happens When a Nation Spirals into Darkness?

May 30, 2019 by

by Michael Brown, Decision Magazine: Have you ever seen a sports team collapse in a game? The players were doing well, then one thing went wrong, then another, and before you knew it, the game had become a disaster. Everything unraveled. More serious, have you ever seen someone’s health collapse? One day they seemed to be fine. The next day, they experienced some unusual pain and tiredness. The following day, total exhaustion. Then, the terrible diagnosis from the doctor. Then, debilitating...

Ben Shapiro and the West’s Moral Vision

May 25, 2019 by

by Andrew T Walker, Public Discourse: One might expect a book by Ben Shapiro to be about the task of “owning the libs” or “drinking liberal tears.” In fact, the reader comes away with a starkly different impression. In The Right Side of History, Shapiro argues that the cultural and political malaise of contemporary America is due to its being severed from its Judeo-Christian roots. Ben Shapiro is one of the most influential conservative voices in America. His podcast is one of the most...

Your guide through the media’s moral maze

Apr 23, 2019 by

by Will Jones, The Conservative Woman: THE media has a narrative, one it shares with much of our political class and cultural elite. We all know what it is.

The Ten Commandments Revisited: 1. I am the Lord Your God

It is not unreasonable to suggest that schools would be far...

How Legalized Abortion Renders Us Impotent in the Fight Against Radical Islam

Mar 21, 2019 by
