The Revolutions Were

Written by Gary North on October 1, 2016


“There are those who still think they are holding the pass against a revolution that may be coming up the road. But they are gazing in the wrong direction. The revolution is behind them. It went by in the Night of Depression, singing songs to freedom.” — Garet Garrett, The Revolution Was (1938) There have […]

Sucker Play: The Supreme Court Card

Written by Gary North on September 3, 2016


“Our country can survive the occasional infelicities and improprieties of Donald Trump. But it cannot survive losing the Supreme Court to liberals and allowing them to wreck our sacred republic. It would reshape the country for decades.” — Bill Bennett How seriously should we take this prediction. Not at all. How seriously should we take […]

On Understanding What You Read

Written by Gary North on September 3, 2016


In the past three weeks, I have been sent two emails regarding a review I wrote in 2012 of a silly anti-Communist documentary, Agenda (2010). The thesis of this documentary is that Communism is not only alive and well, it is about to conquer America. In fact, we are almost out of time. Communism is […]

Posted on August 20, 2016


By Paul H. Jossey As we watch the Republican Party tear itself to shreds over Donald Trump, perhaps it’s time to take note of another conservative political phenomenon that the GOP nominee has utterly eclipsed: the Tea Party.

Defensive Burn-Out

Written by Gary North on June 11, 2016


And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not (Gal. 6:9). After years or even decades “in the trenches,” people who have dedicated their time and money to a defensive cause tend to get burned out. In the mid-1950’s, the woman who first introduced […]

Small Beginnings

Written by Gary North on June 11, 2016


For who hath despised the day of small things? (Zech. 4:10a). One of the most difficult things to imagine is a modern proponent of political liberalism standing up to pass the hat for some local social action project. What he will attempt to do is to create a grass-roots pressure group to promote the financing […]

Conservatism’s Shaky Foundations

Written by Gary North on June 4, 2016


Years ago, conservative scholar Richard Weaver was induced to publish a book under the title, Ideas Have Consequences. It became his most famous book, and his most oft-quoted phrase. The conservative movement has always been intellectual in its orientation, beginning with the seminal work, Edmund Burke’s Reflections on the Revolution in France (1790). Conservatism’s influence […]

The Eschatological Crisis of the Moral Majority

Written by Gary North on May 28, 2016


I wrote about this in 1981, in the month that Ronald Reagan Was inaugurated. I knew that his fundamentalist supporters were intellectually schizophrenic. The Moral Majority was shut down before Reagan left office. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *Last summer, I had the opportunity of […]
