Keeping the Climate Safe from Too Many Brown Babies »

It was one thing for gullible college students in the late 1960s to present themselves for voluntary sterilization as a result of their buying into Paul Ehrlich’s Population Bomb myth. In keeping with the premise of the annual Darwin Awards, it might be just as well that those so prone to falling for groundless…

30 Years Later: The Academe as Refuge for Anti-Abortion Protest? »

The blind Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng’s hopefully being able to take refuge (with his family) as a visiting scholar at NYU would indeed be a happy outcome of his ordeal. His documentation of forced late-term abortions and sterilizations has led to more than four years in prison; followed by his, his wife’s, and children’s…

Modern Conservatism = Rightwing Progressivism? »

Mary’s post perfectly exposes the key problem with these progressives. No objective moral standards. No basic respect in human dignity. One thing that troubles me about the political climate is just how extensive this moral bankruptcy is. Glenn Beck did a service in demonstrating the collectivist ethical situationalism of progressives to a whole generation…

“Progressive” Righteous Zealotry Bodes Ill for Individual Life and Liberty »

The brazenness with which mainstream “Progressives” (or “Modernists”) are now declaring not only their abandonment but outright hostility to the concept of rights is extremely troubling. I infer it signals their belief that they now have complete control of the public square and every thinking person now “knows” that such ideas are outdated and…

Violence Against Women Act Sanctions Rights Violations »

Democrats are hoping to make political hay by characterizing Republicans’ opposition to the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) as “anti-woman.” Republicans are right to be against the Act—unfortunately, however, not for the reasons they cite—as ought all who favor the rule of law and due process. VAWA was originally passed during…

Filing a Complaint With the Police Department »

It’s made very difficult to do, and the attempt can get you arrested. You will be intimidated and asked for your papers merely for asking for a form. This is where the state is closest to the people—the local police—and yet some people still think government is more responsive to the people than business.

God and Woman in the Nanny State »

If there is one thing to be hoped will come out of the current controversy over the proposed mandate for religious organizations to pay for free pregnancy prevention and termination coverage for their employees, it is that women and American religious leaders and believers come to realize that the state is not a benevolent,…

True Religious Freedom Means Freedom for All »

A recent development in Obamacare’s reach raises an important point about religious liberty. The health care law requires hospitals to provide contraceptives to patients. Churches have protested and have won an exemption to this regulation as it concerns their own health services. This is all well and good: Religious institutions shouldn’t be forced to…

Secular Theocracy: The Foundations and Folly of Modern Tyranny, Part 2 »

We live in a secularized world of nation states in which traditional religion, especially Christianity, is unwelcome. Rooted in the “Enlightenment,” this view supports a secularized and authoritarian public square enforced by government and that progress requires forcing religion ever backward into remote corners of society. In short, America has become a secular theocracy…

The Dystopian Bungling and Brutality of Immigration Enforcement »

A fourteen- or fifteen-year-old Dallas girl was deported by U.S. immigration officials to Colombia. She spoke no Spanish and they did appear not to have even checked her fingerprints to ensure she was who they thought she was. It’s true, she gave a false name to local police, but there is simply no excuse…
