The month of August was extremely troubling, with the horrific events in Charlottesville, Virginia sparking a national debate. The left and right have both understandably condemned hate groups. However, at times, the national “debate” has felt more like a progressive lecture. It should be obvious that hate is fundamentally un-American. However, it seems as though only one side is able to adequately distance itself from its own troubling elements. Some conservatives have overreacted to the crisis by going too far. In their rush to condemn right-wing hate groups, these individuals have gone so far as to make excuses for violent so-called...Read More

These days, it seems that the only thing that can bring dissenting thinkers together is a rally. And by rally, I mean a fist-fighting, pepper spray-filled, flag-burning fight club. It’s an inspiring picture of a country united by their mutual hatred of one another. Even inanimate objects like statues of long dead men are not immune from political hit jobs! In all seriousness, our current political climate is one of the most dire national concerns we are facing today. Most Americans understand that we are deeply ideologically divided as a country. Many of us are also aware that this division...Read More
The distinction between a masterpiece and a piece of trash is left largely to preference. Further, it’s true that we all have our own unique tastes. However, despite the claims of postmodern thinkers, it seems difficult to deny that inherent beauty exists in art and architecture just as it does in the natural world.

To them, literally and figuratively deconstructing architecture is just another way of challenging the objective worldview that the rest of us take for granted. The postmodern mistake Progressives’ relativistic worldview doesn’t end where brick...Read More
On his recent “Tucker Carlson Tonight” appearance, YouTube star Austen Fletcher exposed the blind ignorance of progressive protesters. In a video segment, protester after protester was unable to describe exactly what aspects of the Trump administration they are “resisting.” Although humorous, the segment serves as frightening proof that some on the progressive left base their unrealistic worldviews on nothing at all. Differences In Approach It’s well known that conservatives respect freedom of thought and expression, even from those with whom we disagree. We have the strength of our convictions, to be sure. But we also know that our ideas...Read More
As much as they accuse the right of cruelty and criminality, many leftists seem fine engaging in it themselves. As self-appointed arbiters of morality and truth, they have a selective eye when it comes to determining who among them is worthy of their benevolence and mercy. Like kings among the unwashed masses, progressives see liberty in society as people resisting their own best interests. According to the gospel of progressive thought, those who do not submit to their new, “enlightened” perspective must be punished. This resistance to liberty, from bashing Trump supporters with baseball bats to blacklisting conservative speakers, seems shocking at...Read More
