The Power of Perspective

I take nothing for granted.  The tragedies that monopolize our TV screens day in and day out — volcanic eruptions … gang violence … floods … school shootings … et al — constantly remind me of how blessed I am.  This daily barrage of depressing news also keeps me on my toes when it comes […]

One of the most poorly thought-out comments President Trump has made to date is when he guaranteed Kim Jong-un’s safety if a peace settlement is reached.  Good intentions, no doubt, but the reality is that it’s a guarantee he can’t make good on.  Here’s why: Let’s take a best-case scenario and assume a deal is […]

Taking Control of Your Desires

A fundamental truth that I learned about desire from Harry Browne is that everyone’s desires are unlimited.  That’s not to say we all have the same desires, just that we have an infinite number of desires. Some of the more common desires include wealth, power, recognition, and, at the extreme end of the desire spectrum, […]

I recently ran into a casual acquaintance, Peter, in the lobby of a hotel where I was staying.  I hadn’t seen Peter in many years and almost didn’t recognize him. After shaking hands, I asked him what he’d been up to all these years, and his response reminded me of something the great Tom Wolfe […]

I was more than just a bit interested in hearing what Mark Levin’s recent guest, David Berlinski, had to say on “Life, Liberty, and Levin.”  My interest stemmed from the fact that virtually everything Berlinski said aligns with my own thinking over the years.  Getting confirmation from someone whose knowledge dwarfs your own tends to […]

Objective Truth versus Relativism

As the social civil wars in America continue to heat up, one wonders how both sides in these hotly contested debates can be so convinced they have objective truth on their side.  Actually, it raises the question of whether there really is such a thing as objective, or absolute, truth. To be absolute, a truth […]

Mankind: The Failed Experiment

As I think about the havoc that has reigned throughout the world century after century, I am reminded of one of those ancient-astronaut books I read many years ago that set forth a fascinating theory. The author believed that munificent aliens from another galaxy visited the earth eons ago and created man.  After a long […]

Expansion of the phony Russia-collusion investigation to include the Manafortization of Michael Cohen’s home and office is nothing short of a declaration of war.  Given that the DOJ/FBI police state has now become entrenched, it’s time for freedom advocates to be prepared to hang together or hang separately. I’ve always believed that God acts in […]

If there’s one thing I wish I had done more of in my life, it’s watch good movies.  Not just any movies, but good movies. Unfortunately, that eliminates the vast majority of junk films made over the past thirty or so years.  I’m not the least bit impressed listening to a bunch of young hotshot […]

The Collapse of Western Civilization, Part IV

As noted in Part III of this article, the premise of the anything-goes society is that people have a right to have their desires fulfilled, which brings to mind Margaret Thatcher’s simple but profound insight, “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” In the early stages of the […]
