The War on Wisdom

Tue, May 8, 2018

There is more knowledge available today than ever before in history. But few would argue people are wiser than ever before. On the contrary, many of us would argue that we are living in a particularly foolish time — a period that is largely wisdom-free, especially among those with the most knowledge: the best educated.

Fear of the Left: The Most Powerful Force in America Today

Tue, May 1, 2018

The dominant force in America and many other Western countries today is fear of the left. This is a result of the fact that the most dynamic religion of the past 100 years has been neither Christianity nor Islam. It has been leftism. Whoever does not recognize this does not understand the contemporary world. Leftism […] The post Fear of the Left: The Most...

The New York Times Best-Seller List: My Response to the Times’ Response

Tue, Apr 24, 2018

In my last column — “The New York Times Best-Seller List: Another Reason Americans Don’t Trust the Media” — I used my recently published book as evidence that The New York Times best-seller list is not a best-seller list. I pointed out that the book, “The Rational Bible: Exodus,” the first volume of my commentary...

The New York Times Best-Seller List: Another Reason Americans Don’t Trust the Media

Tue, Apr 17, 2018

About half the American people do not believe the mainstream media tell the truth. They believe the media are more interested in promoting their left-wing views than reporting the truth. I am, I note with sadness, a member of that half. Here is but one more example: The New York Times best-seller list. As a […] The post The New York Times Best-Seller List:...

Whatever the Left Touches it Ruins

Tue, Apr 10, 2018

The only way to save Western civilization is to convince more people that leftism — not liberalism — is a nihilistic force. Quite literally, whatever the left touches it ruins. So, here is a partial listing of the damage done by the left and the Democratic Party: The most obvious — and, therefore, the one […] The post Whatever the Left...

Conservatives, Too, Undergo Secular Indoctrination

Tue, Apr 3, 2018

Many years ago, I attended a dinner at a wealthy man’s New York City condo with, among others, one of the most prominent and influential conservatives in American life. I admired this man then and I admire him now (he has since passed on). He was a major force for good in America. At one […] The post Conservatives, Too, Undergo Secular Indoctrination...

Trump, Adultery, Morality

Tue, Mar 27, 2018

Some years ago, I wrote a column about adultery and politicians. In light of the Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal interviews concerning their alleged (and probable) affairs with President Donald Trump, it is time to revisit the subject. I do not agree with those — right or left, religious or secular — who contend that […] The post Trump,...

Who Are the Luckiest Jews, Blacks and Latinos?

Tue, Mar 13, 2018

At The City College of New York in the late 1930s, my father, an Orthodox Jew, wrote his senior class thesis on anti-Semitism in America. He delineated common realities of the era, such as Jews’ admission to law firms, country clubs and colleges being denied or restricted, and various other manifestations of popular and institutional […] The post Who...

Why Christians Support Israel

Tue, Mar 6, 2018

They believe in supporting American allies and supporting countries that share their moral values. In speeches to fellow Jews around America, I often point out that many American Jews are experiencing cognitive dissonance. The institution Jews most admire — the university — turns out to be the most significant source of Israel hatred in America […] The...

Why the Left Opposes Arming Teachers

Tue, Feb 27, 2018

Why does the left oppose allowing a small number of highly trained teachers and other adults who work at schools to arm themselves? When asked, their response is consistent: “It’s a crazy idea.” And “We need fewer guns, not more guns.” A New York Times editorial offered the following argument against having any armed teachers:...

Liberals and Conservatives Are Unhappy for Different Reasons

Tue, Feb 13, 2018

One of the most important differences between the right and the left — one that greatly helps to explain their differences — is the difference between unhappy liberals and unhappy conservatives. Unhappy conservatives generally believe they are unhappy because life is inherently difficult and tragic, and because they have made some unwise decisions in...

In Defense of Evangelicals Who Support Trump

Tue, Feb 6, 2018

It is usually easier for an outsider to defend a person or a group that is attacked than for the person or group. In that vein, this Jew would like to defend evangelicals and other Christians who support President Donald Trump. They are regularly attacked as religious hypocrites who give Christianity in general, and evangelical […] The post In Defense of...

3 Reasons the Left Wants Evermore Immigrants

Tue, Jan 30, 2018

On one thing we can all agree: The left wants more and more immigrants — including immigrants who enter or are in the country illegally — to come to America and become American citizens. The question is, why? The first and most obvious reason is political. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, chain migration, […] The post 3...

Male Sexual Nature: A Primer for the College-Educated

Tue, Jan 23, 2018

Few subjects elicit as much confused, or even nonsensical, commentary as sex. There are three major reasons for this. First, few forces are as powerful as the sexual drive, yet in no area of human life are the sexes so different. If they try hard, men and women can understand almost everything about one another.

10 Thoughts on the President and the ‘S—hole Countries’

Tue, Jan 16, 2018

Here are 10 thoughts on the president’s alleged use of the word “s—hole” in describing Haiti, a Central American country and African countries: 1. There are few filters between President Donald Trump’s mind and mouth. That is his appeal and his weakness. It is very common that a person’s strengths are also weaknesses. I wish...

I’m Back. Here’s Where I’ve Been

Tue, Jan 9, 2018

I won’t make any assumptions about how many readers noticed I took a three-month break from column writing. Nevertheless, I want to explain why. I needed the time to finish the first volume of the biggest project of my life as a writer, a commentary on the first five books of the Bible, or what […] The post I’m Back. Here’s Where...
