Why Fighting Divisive Racial Narratives Is A Patriotic Necessity

Charles Love’s Race Crazy: BLM, 1619, and the Progressive Racism Movement arrives in the midst of a glut of books about The 1619 Project, Black Lives Matter, and the various incarnations of the modern woke movement.

Saving Children From Being Soft, Entitled, And Aimless

Peruse any list of non-fiction bestsellers these days, and one is quickly struck by the reality that the most successful authors tend to be giants of American culture—prominent politicians, erudite pundits of all political persuasions, blue-check celebrities, or the occasional Ivy League academic hoping to cross over from scholarly paper writing into mainstream American mass market book commercialism.

New Book Charts A Tale Of Sudden Civilizational Collapse

A British minister was recently under fire for mentioning what might have seemed obvious to anyone not obsessed with political correctness. “I don’t care about colonialism,” Kemi Badenoch argued, “they came in and just made a different bunch of winners and losers.
