The Left is a Threat

Hello. I was just recently listening to the presentation by Dennis Prager. He is one of the leading conservative thought leaders in America and probably in the world. He leads the Prager University, and he has a radio show and a quarter of a million people listen to him. And the subject of his presentation was that the left ideology, the left political orientation, is a threat to Western civilization. And not as a byproduct of the ideology, no, no, no, no. He says it's so much more. He says it's an intention of the left political orientation ideology to destroy Western civilization.

What is Keeping Underdeveloped Countries from Developing?

The meaning of the word “development” has been debated. Indeed, the World Bank has essentially stopped using the terms “developing” and “developed”—first because they are fraught with misunderstanding; but also because countries no longer fit neatly into one of the two categories. Plus, there are disputes about how to measure standards, with GDP very much out of fashion, while “multiple modernities” has become a focus of controversy about what to count and how to achieve it. Nations can succeed in some ways but not in others. It’s not a smooth divide, nor is it a smooth path.

How and Why Things Can Go Tragically Wrong

The purpose, the goal of Communism was ultimate justice and happiness: All people will be equal; there will be no exploitation of other people. And what happened? Millions of kulaks, land-owners, were killed, and the nation of Ukraine was starved. Millions of people were sent to the gulags, where they suffered or perished. What went wrong? The goal was so pure.

Russia’s Dilemma

When I lecture in Russia, my PowerPoints and I are translated into Russian, so I have learned that the words for “power” and “government” are the same: vlast. In other words, government and power are one and the same, presuming that the only power is with the government, and the people have no power. Ponder the political meaning of that.

Why We Hurt the Ones We Love

It is a known phenomenon that the people we give the hardest time to are the people who are closest to us, whom we love. Those we don’t love, we ignore.
