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 […]
Among the much reading I did for the forthcoming book on American slavery and racism, about half ended up helpful or interesting. Some of it was drudgery. Some, however, gave a little delight and a spark of hope, as well as a little surprise. Among the more remarkably surprising little bits was Charles Hodge’s article penned on […]
The best way to destroy the public’s memory of an important event is to make it into an American national holiday. This brings me to the Fourth of July. There are no Fourth of July parades on TV, or anywhere else, as far as I know. I cannot remember any in my youth.
Although it is never objectively accurate to say that a certain time period was “the good old days,” there are many positive values that our society has lost in the past 150 years. One of the most tragic of these losses was the disintegration of the family culture, and especially multi-generational connections and legacies. Because […]
Every political movement needs a manifesto. The Tea Party surely needs one. So do other grassroots political resistance organizations. They don’t have it yet, but they now have its preliminary foundation, Angelo Codevilla’s essay, “America’s Ruling Class — And the Perils of Revolution.” http://GaryNorth.com/snip/997.htm I have long regarded Dr. Codevilla as America’s smartest conservative political […]
“[T]he English students at Harvard University once insisted on the Boston telephone book being placed on the reading list alongside the works of Shakespeare as . . . there is no greater merit in the one than the other. Good and evil are, therefore, totally relative to the society in which these values are held […]
The mark of political sovereignty is legal immunity from failure. For example, the government of the United States cannot be sued without its consent. It is above the law. It must consent to expose itself to the possibility of failure in a court. In school, we are taught about an ancient idea that is long […]
“I don’t know what you mean by ‘glory,’“ Alice said. Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. “Of course you don’t—till I tell you . . . When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different […]
Left Wing activists accuse the Right of being violent and racist, despite lack of evidence to support these claims. In fact, it is the Left that has displayed the most violent tendencies, even encouraging it in some cases. Join Gary DeMar as he lays out the violent revolutionary tactics of the Left Wingers.
What is government? When this question is asked, most people respond by equating government solely to a centralized civil State. Even our language reflects the confusion: “Government? It’s in Washington,” or “The government will take care of its citizens through its many programs.” Both of these statements reflect a misunderstanding of the true nature of government. They portray the idea that the only governing institution is a political one. Historically, however, the term “government” was always qualified in some way, unlike our present-day definitions.
In the July 11, 1968, issue of The Village Voice, Marvin Garson, the pamphleteer of the Free Speech Movement, recounted with pride the bombings which had been the calling card of campus radicals from Berkeley and its environs:
Recently I have received a number of emails from atheists. This isn’t unusual since American Vision publishes a number of books refuting common atheist arguments, and I’ve written a few articles on the subject as well. American Vision has published four books refuting three top-dog atheists: Letter from a Christian Citizen, Return of the Village Atheist, God Is, and The Deluded Atheist.
