The Pittsburgh Synagogue, Anti-Semitism and Trump

Tue, Oct 30, 2018

All my life I have reminded fellow Jews in America that we are the luckiest Jews to have ever lived in a non-Jewish country. I know what I’m talking about. I wrote a book on anti-Semitism, taught Jewish history at Brooklyn College and fought anti-Semitism since I was 21, when Israel sent me into the […] The post The Pittsburgh Synagogue,...

What I Learned About Young People While Trying to Buy a Car

Tue, Oct 23, 2018

This past week, I went to five car dealers in an upper-middle-class suburb of Los Angeles to see what SUV I’d like to lease. I wanted to patronize local car dealers because I want them to stay in business. In each case, I experienced the following: I was greeted pleasantly upon entering the dealership. A […] The post What I Learned About Young People...

When I First Realized America Is Exceptional

Tue, Oct 16, 2018

I moved to California from New York City in 1976. The founder of what was then America’s largest Jewish retreat center, the Brandeis Institute (not affiliated with the university), Dr. Shlomo Bardin, asked me to work as his assistant. He was 75 years-old; I was 25. One weekend the next year, he announced to the […] The post When I First Realized...

Explaining the Left, Part IV: Leftist Contempt for Middle-Class Values

Tue, Oct 2, 2018

When I was in graduate school, I learned a lot about the left. One lesson was that while most liberals and conservatives abide by society’s rules of order and decency, most leftists do not feel bound to live by these same rules. I watched the way leftist Vietnam War protesters treated fellow students and professors. […] The post Explaining the Left,...

What Does Female Empowerment Mean?

Tue, Sep 25, 2018

My last column elicited tens of thousands of comments – from the thoughtful to the sick –  on the internet and Twitter. In the column, I made two points. One was that the accusation made against Judge Kavanaugh – for which there is no evidence, that was made by an anti-Trump activist, that concerns an […] The post What Does Female Empowerment Mean?...

The Charges Against Judge Kavanaugh Should Be Ignored

Tue, Sep 18, 2018

It is almost impossible to overstate the damage done to America’s moral compass by taking the charges leveled against Judge Brett Kavanaugh seriously. It undermines foundational moral principles of any decent society. Those who claim the charges against Judge Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford are important and worth investigating, and that they...

“Most voters say President Donald Trump is not a good role model for children, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll. “While 90 percent of voters say the president should be a good role model for kids, only 29 percent say he is while 67 percent say he is not.” — U.S. News Jan. 26, […] The post Is the President a Bad Role...

Explaining the Left, Part III: Leftism as Secular Religion

Tue, Aug 28, 2018

One of the most important books of the 20th century — it remains a best-seller 59 years after it was first published — is “Man’s Search for Meaning” by Viktor Frankl. Marx saw man’s primary drive as economic, and Freud saw it as sex. But Frankl believed — correctly, in my opinion — that the […] The post...

Explaining the Left: Part II

Tue, Aug 21, 2018

The governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, did Americans a favor last week. He provided that which is most indispensable to understanding anything: clarity. “America … was never that great,” he announced. In one sentence, the governor revealed the left’s true view of America. This is rare — because leftists are masters at hiding what...

Pope Francis Rewrites Catholicism … and the Bible

Tue, Aug 7, 2018

After 2,000 years of teaching that a moral use of capital punishment for murder is consistent with Catholic teaching, the pope announced that the catechism, the church fathers and St. Thomas Aquinas, among the other great Catholic theologians, were all wrong.

What Are Your Child’s Passions?

Tue, Jul 31, 2018

If you ask most young people today if they have any hobbies, you will receive one of four answers: 1. “No.” 2. “What do you mean?” 3. “Yeah. I play video games/watch TV/watch movies.” 4. “Yeah…” and then they may actually cite a hobby. The fourth is the least common. Dan Scotti, lifestyle writer at...

The Greatest Hysteria in American History

Tue, Jul 24, 2018

You and I are living through the greatest mass hysteria in American history. For many Americans, the McCarthy era held that dubious distinction, but what is happening now is incomparably worse.
