How To Prevent The Next Paris Tragedy

The Moral Meaning Behind Thanksgiving

What should we really be celebrating on Thanksgiving?


It’s a Commercial Life

Whenever I hear that familiar Yuletide condemnation “Christmas is too commercial,” I recall George Bailey in “It’s a Wonderful Life” wishing he’d never been born. For just as he didn’t realize the positive impact he’d...

A Commercialized Christmas Carol

Christmas is not really about the myth of three astrologers trekking across the Middle East to see a magic baby. Nor is it about slopping gravy at a homeless shelter or plunking coins into a bucket outside a mall. What Christmas is and should be about, and what...

Obscene Non-Profits

Those who rail against profits and “greed” seldom stop to think through what they are saying, much less go check the facts. Most of the great American fortunes– Rockefeller, Ford, Carnegie, etc. — came from finding more efficient ways to...

The Road to Wealth

The news last month that police had arrested Sajid Badat at his home in Gloucester, England, shook many Britons. The charges against him concerned his training with al-Qaida in Afghanistan and his possessing PETN explosives, the same substance would-be shoe bomber...

The solution to the high cost of prescription drugs, we are told by Democrats and Republicans alike, is more government intervention. Well, if we’re going to use government muscle to lower our medical expenses, why not go all the way? Thus my proposal: Outlaw...

Radical U.N. Tax Plans Threaten America
