If Islam is so great, why aren’t Muslims heading for Muslim-led nations? We’ve been told my Muslim “scholars” that Islam built great civilizations. If this is true, why haven’t Islamic nations flourished like Europe and the United States? The type of questions can be asked of every poverty-stricken country. In a word, worldviews matter? What …

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the War on Poverty. It appears that poverty won that war. Jesus said you will always have the poor with you. He also said, “For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat….to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, …

One of the issues that President Barack Obama hammered on during his State of the Dictatorship address was the growing inequality of wealth.  He complained that the gap between the wealthy and the poor is widening and said something has to be done to change it.

Debt, poverty, suffering, loss of liberty all in some way have roots in the long, slow collapse of the economic potential of America. And much of that can be traced back 100 years ago to …
