While it is helpful to remind ourselves that the technical definition of “Socialism” is quite narrow, and that by that definition “Socialism” is indeed a dead political philosophy, let’s not be so black-and-white minded that we ignore the obvious. Whether the government technically owns the means of production, or whether the government simply has its finger in […]
It would be bad enough if fallacious worldviews stopped merely at theory, but they develop into others areas of covenant and covenant community as well. They affect every area of life, logically, and when followed, practically as well. We have already seen how the foundations of the humanistic / naturalistic worldview are viciously circular, self-contradictory, […]
We’re being told by some that the people of the United States want socialism. The thing of it is, we already have a mild form of socialism. In it’s now famous “We Are All Socialists Now” cover, Newsweek wrote: The U.S. government has already—under a conservative Republican administration—effectively nationalized the banking and mortgage industries. That seems a […]
Peter Hammond issued a response to my article exposing his views on interethnic marriage. Like John Weaver, Hammond tries to position himself as the victim (what else could he do except repent?). But this is not the case. The whole issue has arisen for one reason: Peter Hammond’s own words—unequivocal, clear words. Like Weaver, too, […]
Black Panther is a great movie, and you should go see it. That’s the short version of this review. Before I get into a few bits of analysis, let me say a couple things. First, I don’t normally do movie reviews, and I don’t know how to write the kind of review I want to […]
Socialism found a seminal and powerful voice on English soil through a group of young deadbeats and intellectuals who called themselves “Fabians.” The Fabian Society included famous personalities such as founder George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Well, Virginia Woolf, Sydney and Beatrice Webb, and even Bertrand Russell for a time.
In one of my recent lectures at the Providential History Festival, I quoted this important insight from R. W. Southern: [I]t is important to appreciate the forces which confined and directed the development of the church, for ecclesiastical history is often written as if these forces did not exist, or existed only to be overcome. […]
Amid all of the ridiculous politicization of the gun angle in the wake of Sandy Hook, and even a few calls for a national discussion on mental illness (one more back door for tyrannies, many), why is there so little discussion—or even mention—of what acquaintances of Adam Lanza are calling the turning point in his […]
This month the U.S. federal government has officially endorsed America’s fourth “Gay Pride Month” in the last dozen years. President Bill Clinton originally declared June “Gay Pride Month” in June of 2000, and President Barack Obama has continued that tradition ever since June 2009.1 These declarations foreshadowed his announcement shortly before Mother’s Day last […]
When Jim Wallis declares that he opposes “American exceptionalism,” no one should be surprised. Wallis’s first commitment is Marxism. He started his career in activism not as a church minister nor as a Christian, but as a member of the Students for Democratic Society, a socialist organization originally known as League for Industrial Democracy (LID). […]
In Time proposes a system where time is money, and the wealthy can live forever. The poor die young, and ‘the rich never live’ they say. It’s up to Will Salas to liberate mankind from the market of commoditized time. So does capitalism rule over this sci-fi adventure? Or does marxism steal this twisted romance? Find out now on Movieology!
Pixar’s latest ‘Cars 2’ has critics in a tail spin and speeding away from theater showings. What’s so different from this film and the popular prequel of 2006? On this episode, we have Ben Hodges as a guest reviewer to go in-depth into the first ‘Cars’ film to give us some insights into what might be influencing public opinion of the sequel. Have you seen the earmarks of socialism, and even Marxism in the original ‘Cars’? Ben uncovers these and more on today’s Movieology!
You know when the Left is in trouble: They start praying to Jesus. Well, not exactly praying the way we Christians understand it. The leftist’s prayer is rather trying to recruit Jesus to their agenda and goals, not really ask Jesus what He wishes. This is what Mehdi Hasan has done in his article, “What […]
In the 1980s the Communist governments in Eastern Europe began to realize that they were losing power. The Communist grip on the minds of the people was loosening. The Communist public schools were failing to produce young people loyal to the Party and to the Marxist ideology. The populations in Eastern Europe were increasingly resentful […]
In an article I wrote a while back, “Where Does Productivity Come From,” I pointed to the mechanism for creating greater productivity. Productivity comes from sacrificing present consumption and applying the saved resources to building and improving the production base. There is no other way. In a private email a reader disagreed somewhat with my […]
Isabel Paterson writes in her book The God of the Machine, “Most of the harm in the world is done by good people, and not by accident, lapse, or omission. It is the result of their deliberate actions, long persevered in, which they hold to be motivated by high ideals toward virtuous ends.”1 Thomas Sowell […]
At the Independence Day, Barack Hussein Obama used the opportunity to bash the Founding Fathers of these United States of America. The exact words he used were these: “. . . the principles that are timeless; tenets first declared by men of property and wealth, but which gave rise to what Lincoln called, ‘a new […]
The American expression “Indian summer” is known on the Balkans as “Gypsy summer.” It has the same meaning as its American counterpart, as far as the weather is concerned: a short period—usually two or three weeks—of relatively warm days in the late October, when the sun is shining and one can still enjoy a good walk outside without the nasty cold feeling of the coming winter. The trees are changing their colors from green to yellow to red and brown, and the winter seems awfully far away.
