Written by Gary North on November 26, 2016

real-id

I have been writing publicly ever since 1958. Over the years, I have received my fair share of letters from crackpots, really stupid people, and people so far beyond the fringe that I wonder how they function. Nevertheless, I have received an email from a man who puts them all to shame. I wrote an […]

deportation

Recently, I presented my plan for reducing the flow of illegal immigrants by 80% by the end of 2018. Now it’s time to deal with the illegals who are already here. There are an estimated 11 million illegals. There may be as many as 20 million. The low-ball estimate of the cost of tracking down […]

This paralysis creates a significant […]

europe

Europe is humanistic. “Religion doesn’t divide us any more.” Europe is liberal. “We’re all liberals here.” Europe has a huge welfare state. “Come and get it!” Europe does not reproduce at replacement rate: 2.1 children per woman. “The future is irrelevant.” Here comes the future!

Blaming the Geezers, Not the State

Written by Gary North on December 22, 2014

The prestigious Financial Times offers an explanation for the West’s pessimism.  It blames aging. It does not blame Keynesianism. It does not blame a loss of faith in the idea of progress, a factor that Robert Nisbet warned against in the Epilogue to his great book, History of the Idea of Progress (1980). It does […]
