    When I graduated from college in 1989, it looked like socialism was dead. The Soviet Union—the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics—was in its death throes. In comparison, the American economy was booming, and countries around the world were beginning to liberalize their markets. After a sophomoric flirtation with socialism, I had concluded that capitalism was probably the most workable economic model. I had not resolved my lingering suspicions, however, that capitalism was immoral and that socialism was still the Christian ideal. Part of that impression came from biblical passages that seem to suggest as much: “Now the full number of...

    In what has since become known as his first “major” speech, Abraham Lincoln famously warned the Young Men’s Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois in 1838 about the dangers of “mob rule.” As reprehensible as are the immediate consequences of mob rule, however, Lincoln’s larger strategy in the speech is to use our revulsion at the actions of the mob to draw our attention to the long-term dangers of what he calls “the mobocratic spirit.”
  • So Why Not Cancel Leftist Karl Marx?

    Racism and Jew-hate were second nature to socialism's Godfather. Reprinted From the American Spectator. In a cancel culture targeting everyone from Confederate to Union generals, Columbus to Winston Churchill, Francis Scott Key to even Abraham Lincoln and all of Mt. Rushmore, and where the racial statements and attitudes of every historical figure are scrutinized, it’s funny who gets a pass. A 16-foot-tall bronzed Vladimir Lenin stands unscathed in liberal Seattle, and a new monument to the Bolshevik godfather just went up in Germany. Particularly curious, one wonders why Karl Marx goes untouched. There are monuments to Marx in Europe, one...

    In a grim convention speech, Sen. Bernie Sanders said "voters will face a choice between authoritarianism and freedom this November. One of the candidates intends to impose a regime of individualism that will stifle the human dream of collectivism envisioned by Karl Marx. The other candidate offers a pathway to escape this dire fate." "If Donald Trump is reelected Americans will be forced to earn their own livings," Sanders lamented. "Some will be encouraged to embark on a futile quest for success as owners and operators of small businesses. Others will be expected to take jobs producing products that consumers...

    Lutherans Hail Cdl. Marx for Ecumenism Leftist prelate working for joint Holy Communion AUGSBURG, Germany (ChurchMilitant.com) - Cardinal Reinhard Marx is sharing an award for ecumenism with a German Lutheran clergyman. Marx and Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bavaria, were awarded the Augsburg High Peace Festival Prize last weekend. The city of Augsburg and the Lutheran Church present the triennial award to "individuals who have rendered outstanding services to a tolerant and peaceful coexistence of cultures and religion." Marx explained what the award meant to him. "Christianity in Germany and Europe will only have a future if we strongly work together and stay together ecumenically. That is...
  • Hey, useful idiots: Karl Marx was a racist and anti-Semite Walter E. Williams: His devotees who destroy property also don't care about people of color

    Most people who call themselves Marxists know very little of Karl Marx's life and have never read his three-volume "Das Kapital." Volume I was published in 1867, the only volume published before Marx's death in 1883. Volumes II and III were later edited and published in his name by his friend and collaborator Friedrich Engels. Most people who call themselves Marxist have only read his 1848 pamphlet "The Communist Manifesto," which was written with Engels. Marx is a hero to many labor union leaders and civil rights organizations, including leftist groups like Black Lives Matter, Antifa and some Democratic Party...

    Is the multicultural campaign really about diversity? Or is it about stamping out Western civilization and the "white race" itself? College students will tell you that a university education today is a guilt trip for whites. The purpose is to prevent whites from appreciating and absorbing their own culture, and to make it difficult for whites to resist the unreasonable demands (quotas, reparations, etc.) from "people of color." To the questions, "Who am I? What am I?" the white university graduate answers, "a racist, sexist, homophobic oppressor." Neither parents, trustees, alumni nor the public are aware of the anti-white...

    Looking to protect their statues and other municipal monuments, cities and towns across the country have begun disguising their statues as Karl Marx. City councils all over are ordering Karl Marx wigs and putting them on Teddy Roosevelt, George Washington, Christopher Columbus, and other statues. The move has proven extremely effective at deterring Antifa and other extremist groups, who are only looking for statues of old hateful white guys to destroy and not statues of communists. "As soon as enraged rioters see the statue isn't of a dangerous, murderous madman whose ideas killed hundreds of millions but is just of...

    Claim contradicted by dataMUNICH, Germany (ChurchMilitant.com) - Cardinal Reinhard Marx of Munich and Freising is asserting that the clerical sex abuse crisis is tied to a lack of women leaders in the Church — a claim countered by research from the Ruth Institute.Marx made his comments last week, reflecting on a 2018 study of clerical sexual abuse commissioned by the German bishops' conference, which showed clerical structures and a male clerical administration named as factors in the massive abuse scandal in the Church and its cover-up. "Women in leading positions in the Church — and this is precisely not a...

Ewald Vollger OT, who contributed to the book, changing Church teaching on homosexuality “can be not only discussed, but also demanded.”...

    A feminist politician in Australia had me arrested by the police and dragged through psychological hell in a family violence court after I lobbied her for memorial tree plantings. I had wanted to celebrate the human rights secured in World War Two and was stripped of my own rights. After 28 years (at that time) of being a midwife I was completely unprepared for what was done. So it was profoundly traumatic for me and left me with a very bad case of PTSD. The best cure to this attack on my freedom of speech has been to practise freedom...

    Image from commons.wikimedia.org by CarlosXVIG Rudyard Kipling has long been a favorite author of mine. My parents had two volumes of his collected works, which included The Jungle Book, Kim, a number of short stories and poems. To a budding bibliophile teenager who loved the outdoors, they were magic carpet rides into the exotic.  I have much appreciated his poem, The Gods of the Copybook Headings. It is a complement to common sense, tradition, and hard won, practical conservatism. The wisdom it speaks of comes mostly from The Bible, with many direct references to Psalms, verses of which were printed...

FRANKFURT, Germany, February 5, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Two German bishops have called the Church to change its teaching on homosexuality and recognize the “values” like fidelity that are allegedly lived in homosexual relationships. Archbishop Stefan Heße and Bishop Georg Bätzing made their remarks at the first assembly of the synodal path in Germany, which concluded on Saturday, February 1, 2020. Heße, the archbishop of...

Elizabeth Warren (Mass) rebuffed his contention that bailing out the debtors was unfair to people like himself who worked and saved to pay his children's college expenses. "Look, the fairest principle for organizing society is that each person should contribute according to his ability and each person should be rewarded according to his need," Warren asserted. "You were able to work two jobs and could afford to pay your kids' way. Not everyone has as much energy or willingness to sacrifice. These less able...

    Munich Resistance: German Catholics Must Stop Paying Church Tax Traditionalists rally a 'terrible army with banners' to combat synodal path MUNICH (ChurchMilitant.com) - Catholics protesting in Munich are accusing the German Bishops' Conference of deploying their multi-billion-euro income from the state-imposed "Church tax" to subvert traditional Catholicism in Germany and across the globe.  At a silent prayer rally in the center of the Bavarian city on Saturday, an international coalition of more than 130 prominent lay Catholics called on the German bishops to end the "dissimulation and deception" being introduced into the worldwide Catholic Church by the Trojan horse of the so-called "synodal path." Critics say the two-year German "synodal path," which began on...
