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 […]

Once the moral revolution in the Western world picked up steam, it was but a small step to the next plateau of the revolution — the “anything‑goes society.”  What is an anything‑goes society and how does it work? To answer these questions, it is instructive to recognize that man is a creature of infinite desires, […]

It has often been said that rampant drug use, the glorification of abortion, violent movies and video games, pick-and-choose gender identification, sanctuary cities, and other modern ills are responsible for the destruction of Western civilization.  But are they?  Not really.  They are symptoms, not causes. Symptoms are just manifestations of an underlying disorder and are […]

(The following article is an adaptation based on material from my 1983 book, How You Can Find Happiness During the Collapse of Western Civilization.) No matter who controls the House, Senate, and executive branch of our government, the drive to disassemble American culture — and, on a broader scale, Western culture — continues almost unabated.  […]

Time to Amend the Constitution

There’s no question that democracy is a more compassionate tool than brute force when it comes to controlling people.  Unfortunately, however, the chains of democracy come in the form of so-called entitlements, a nasty little hallucination dreamed up by scoundrels who are willing to do anything to achieve and maintain power.   The chief distinguishing […]

America’s Fractured Culture

Life is a dangerous experience.  It’s dangerous at birth and dangerous every step along the way of our journey to another dimension.  The Parkland, Florida school shooting is yet another reminder of the painful reality that there are some dangers we simply cannot eliminate. Coming to grips with this fact is an insurmountable obstacle for […]

I’ve always found it interesting that we celebrate the birthdays of so many scoundrels and charlatans whose actions have brought poverty, misery, and even death to millions of individuals, yet ignore people who have made enormous contributions to mankind. Included in the latter group is the legendary Ayn Rand, a writer/philosopher who was decades ahead […]

As Barack Hussein Obama, the king of arrogance and incompetence, increasingly rears his Marxist tentacles in what will surely turn out to be an embarrassing effort to prop up Dirty Dems seeking reelection in the 2018 midterms, it’s a reminder of how many people I’ve observed over the years who are inexplicably overconfident in spite […]

The Rebel Within Me

From time to time over the years, there’s a part of me that has been sympathetic to the rabble-rousers who protest against the established order.  I was again reminded of this when I happened to switch on the History channel during a program about the hippie movement of the Sixties. Generally speaking, I am quite […]

Spasms of a Dying Party

Jeff Flake, the whiney liberal Republican from Arizona, outdid himself when he recently lamented, “When you look at some of the audiences cheering for Republicans, sometimes you look out there and you say, ‘Those are the spasms of a dying party.’” Flake went on to say, “By and large, we’re appealing to older white men, […]
