Soft-Selling Communism and Stalinism in the ‘Trumbo’ film

My wife and I sat down the Saturday before the Academy Awards to watch the 2015 film Trumbo. Dalton Trumbo is played by Bryan Cranston who did a marvelous job, certainly worthy of the Academy Award nomination he received for Best Actor. It’s loosely based on the Hollywood screenwriter, author, and self-admitted Communist Dalton Trumbo […]

Did You Know “Jesus Was a Marxist”?

Dan Arel, author of Parenting without God, has written that Jesus was a Marxist. I’m not sure why an atheist would care. Let’s begin with a true statement made by Arel: “If you have read the Bible, you then know much about the story of Jesus and how he helped the sick and poor, asking […]

The “Jesus Was a Socialist” Meme and Lie

“If Jesus had been born 30 years ago, Fox News and the Republican Party would label him a dangerous Middle Eastern man who wants to impose socialism on the world and enable the poor.” The above meme is making its way around Facebook. The last time I checked, it’s not Jews who are beheading Christians, […]

School Bleachers Torn Down Because They Weren’t “Equal”

The end of freedom comes by mandating equality. Here’s a perfect example. Note the name of the school, the Plymouth Wildcats, it will become important later: “A new set of seating is being torn down outside the Plymouth Wildcats varsity boys’ baseball field, not long before the season begins, because the fields for boys’ and […]

Giving Thanks Even when it Seems There’s Little to be Thankful For

Fyodor Dostoyevsky once labeled man as “the ungrateful biped.” “Give a man everything he wants,” declared Immanuel Kant, “and at that moment, everything will not be everything.” Yet here we are on the eve of a new Thanksgiving — one of the best times of the year. It’s great to be reminded of our nation’s […]

Climate Change Fanatics Lie, Deny History, and Want to Control Our Lives

It happens every day. That’s right. The climate changes every day and throughout the day, day in and day out. Have you noticed that Global Warming is out and Climate Change is in? Why is this? Because a new study shows that Global Warming, if there ever was such a thing caused by humans, has […]

Liberals Must Abolish the ‘Cult of the Individual’

The early history of America shows that there was a battle between the individual and the community — the collective. We see this in Jamestown (1607) and Plymouth Plantation (1620). Early in their colonial history, the collective was deemed to be more important than the individual. As a result, the people literally starved to death. […]

Were America’s Founders Socialists?

It’s wrong to say that American was founded by capitalists. In fact, America was founded by socialists who had the humility to learn from their initial mistakes and embrace freedom. One of the earliest and arguably most historically significant North American colonies was Plymouth Colony, founded in 1620 in what is now known as Plymouth, […]

The Mayflower Compact: 391 Years Ago Today

When the Pilgrim Dissenters sent by the Virginia Company to plant a colony in the “northern parts of Virginia” were blown off-course by a storm into the coast of Massachusetts. No longer under the jurisdiction of the Virginia Company or its governor, they realized that they needed a new governing document. So before they landed, […]
