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 […]

So he departed thence, and found Elisha the son of Shaphat, who was plowing with twelve yoke of oxen before him, and he with the twelfth: and Elijah passed by him, and cast his mantle upon him. And he left the oxen, and ran after Elijah, and said, Let me, I pray thee, kiss my […]

How to Write Like Thomas Jefferson

Written by Gary North on July 9, 2016

The Declaration was an exercise in rhetoric: verbal persuasion. He had to persuade at least half a dozen different audiences. Until a student identifies all of them, he will not understand the Declaration. Yet this is rarely taught, even at the upper division college level. You have to know what he was trying to do. […]

But I’m biased. Note: if you enroll your child in […]

A Fanatic With No Skin in the Game

Written by Gary North on May 28, 2016

On May 19, I posted an article that I wrote in 1980. It was on how to defend private education against the state. You can read it here: http://www.garynorth.com/public/15206.cfmLew Rockwell ran it on May 23. Early in the morning on May 23, I received a letter from a stranger. Its tone was typical of a […]

How Christian Schools Can Fight Statist Regulations

Written by Gary North on May 21, 2016

The escalation of Federal and state pressure against the Christian school movement is reaching a crisis stage. Day after day, some pastor or headmaster is put under new bureaucratic regulations. No longer is the battle against the independent schools being left to amateur state attorneys. The big guns are being aimed at the schools, and […]
