Over the years, I can’t tell you how many emails and letters I’ve received from readers who have said things like, “I thought maybe I was crazy until I read your book.” They always seem to be genuinely relieved to discover that someone else has similar thoughts to theirs. This is really what the Trump […]

Scientists tell us that human intelligence is the most powerful force in the universe. That’s right — not gamma-ray bursts, not black holes, not gravity, but human intelligence. To the best of our knowledge, man is the only compilation of atoms that is both aware of itself and gifted with the power to reason. His […]

TTR---June,-1983-2

Now that we’re in the early stages of cellular smartwatches, I thought you’d enjoy taking a trip back to the early 1980s and reading the first article I wrote about cellular telephone, a technology that the average person had not yet even heard of at the time.

There’s something about Thanksgiving that brings back memories of my childhood, more so even than Christmas.

The infantile behavior and entitlement mentality of rioting college students at the University of Missouri, Ithaca College, and Smith College, while something of a yawner in our age of lie-laced victimization protests, is part of a much broader problem. The broader problem I’m referring to is the complete disintegration of Western civilization — i.e., the […]

In my recent article titled “Immortality versus Nothingness,” I speculated on what happens to us after death. As a compliment to that article, I’m going to focus here on the abstract of death itself, because the daily news is saturated with tales of death.

Envy is an emotion that all human beings possess to one extent or another. It has no doubt been around since “civilized” man first arrived on the scene. But today’s envy is much more extreme than it was just a few decades ago. I believe we are now in the midst of what historians may […]

The question of whether man is wolf or sheep has been around for a long time and, not surprisingly, there are strong opinions on both sides. It’s certainly not hard to understand the sheep side of the argument. The majority of people are easily influenced by institutional leaders, whether they represent the state, the church, […]

Have you ever wondered why time seems to pass much more quickly every year of your life? Since virtually everyone experiences this phenomenon, there has to be a concrete reason for it. In other words, it can’t just be everyone’s imagination. As it turns out, there have been many theories set forth to explain this […]
