Eminent Domain

Statist tyranny writ large: “The right of a government to appropriate private property for public use, usually with compensation to the owner.”

“Democratic Socialism” and Sweden: Look again.

See for yourself in Johan Norberg’s documentary on his native Sweden…and learn some fascinating history including the name...

Density Control: Leftist Commissars’ Master Plan of Master Plans

If there is one central, unifying element of Leftist thinking, it is “master planning,” control. Rather than a society of free, independent individuals protected from one another’s follies by a few basic, commonsensical laws, the Leftist craves the control of a Top Down, centralized, societal blueprint. They know better how to create a “fair...

Codevilla and Samuels: Keeping the American Republic.

In a very long, wide-ranging conversation, New York Jewish Liberal David Samuels and California Catholic Conservative Angelo Codevilla engage in the ultimate bull session about American politics and the perks & perils of American power. Through it all runs Codevilla’s recurring (and convincing) worldview of an insatiably power-hungry Elite that exists solely to control...

The triumphant American Jew at the crossroads

Is the time far off when the majority of American Jews change course and fully embrace America (and Israel) in all  the rich variety and freedom it has bestowed upon them and to which they have contributed a disproportionate share here and worldwide? To do so, they must cast off the chains of their...

Breathes there a Conservative who has not had to deal with the hatred and irrationality of a Leftist friend, neighbor or relative when confronted with the choice of individual liberty vs. one-size-fits-all, Big Gov collectivism? So entrenched are millions in the dark hoaxes of Global Warming (planet extinction) and Identity Politics (permanent civil war)...
