The Death of the Left

3678955749_a45780b2ca The left is winning, but for the left winning is indistinguishable from dying. The West didn't defeat Communism; it held it at bay long enough for it to defeat itself. The Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China crushed Communism more decisively than Goldwater could have ever dreamed of. The embargo didn't turn Cuba […]

The Closing of the Liberal Mind

FE_DA_130121ObamaInaugurationCeremony425x283 Suppose that you are a Soviet agent in 1955. Your cover is that of an insurance salesman.

“Free” Education With Strings Attached

FREE-EDUCATION If you think college tuition is expensive now, wait until it is free. Two years of "free" community college sounds wonderful, even though some students who just graduated felt cheated that they did not get it "free" and, in the name of fairness and justice, retroactive reimbursement was immediately demanded. The President announced that two […]

Communism Left So Many Scarred Lives Behind

stock-footage-realistic-d-seamless-looping-ussr-national-flag-waving-in-the-wind On Christmas 1989, twenty-five years ago, the brutal communist dictatorship of Romania ended with the execution of the tyrant Nicolae Ceausescu and his wife Elena in front of a firing squad at Tirgoviste, following a brief trial. His reign of terror lasted 24 years (1965-1989). The first communist despot, Gheorghe Georghiu-Dej (1945-1964) was so ruthless, […]

Communist Propaganda on the Tube

communism Socialism is the gradual and less violent form of communism, and socialist is the project of the European Union, which was born in Maastricht in 1992. The intent was to save socialism in Europe after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the predictable bankruptcy of the welfare state in the west, as well. -Vladimir […]
