How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live....Read more

The European Union (a.k.a. ‘EUtopia’ and ‘European dis-Union’) now claims the unenviable quality of a tottering creaky club where losers are overtaking winners at speeds “Europeanists” refuse to recognize....Read more

Angela Merkel has been feted and saluted as the miracle leader of German Europe. Her crushing Greece into economic and social oblivion has been promoted on both sides of the Atlantic as the model of how to deal with miscreant countries that live the good life with other people’s monies. That her handling of the Greek crisis was denounced in no uncertain terms made no difference to her and her confederates like the infamous Wolfgang Schäuble....Read more

In earlier times, anyone would have been hard pressed to use philanthropy and totalitarianism in the same breath. But in our uncertain and unpromising present, pregnant with lethal crises of conscience, politics, and “social justice,” big time “non-state” philanthropy has become a weapon of insidious undermining of independence and sovereignty aimed at the “guilty” West....Read more

In an era dominated by the fluttering fame of the online jungle, the feeding frenzy of media clamoring for ratings, pathetic politicians, international divas, designer NGOs, and a collective attention span measured in seconds, a country’s slow death weighs little. Instant mayhem, death and destruction immortalized on YouTube, barbaric propaganda images of neo-Neanderthals severing the heads of innocents, and the occasional blurb by a controversial, and almost always incompetent, “public figure” shape out perceptions of “reality.”...Read more

In 1901 Lenin, then the budding Marxist agitator preparing for the revolution asked what was to be done because of “burning questions of our movement.” One hundred and fifteen years later we can ask burning questions about what to do with a disintegrating “EUtopia,” with the Islamist war surge in Europe, with both “indigenous” and “refugee” Moslems going rampant with axes, hatchets, and bombs, but, above all, with political and social elites ignorant on how to defeat the attack and how to protect and strengthen what we still (reluctantly) continue to recognize as Western civilization and its values...Read more
