I am a conservative. I am a conservative by way of three phenomena that have linked together American conservatives since about 1920: (1) anti-Communism; (2) free market economics; (3) conservative social theory. I regard the most important world figure of the 20th century as Vladimir Lenin. Had it not been for the assassination of the […]

competence

Back in 1971, I was interviewed for a teaching position at an obscure Michigan college, one which was officially Christian but which survived only because of the state scholarship program that funneled several hundred nonsectarian, often secular students onto the campus.

discrimination

By Paul Sperry A key part of President Obama’s legacy will be the fed’s unprecedented collection of sensitive data on Americans by race. The government is prying into our most personal information at the most local levels, all for the purpose of “racial and economic justice.” Unbeknown to most Americans, Obama’s racial bean counters are […]

“Parity” Prices It is naught, it is naught, saith the buyer: but when he is gone his way, then he boasteth (Proverbs 20:14). Every voluntary exchange involves buying and selling.
