The Rising Generation’s Intuitive Populism

A modern populist movement with the twin goals of expanding individual liberty and strengthening the bonds of community exists as a result of a communications revolution that has empowered people to control their own lives. That’s good news. The danger, however, is that the new populism will succumb to the old temptations of collectivism—a devolution

Populism: Traditional Community vs. Virtual Community

If, as I noted last week, populism is a logical result of our communications revolution that, to an extent never dreamed before, has empowered individuals to control their own destinies, more needs to be said about its other effects. Specifically, populists seem to have the incongruent goals of both expanding individual liberty and strengthening the

Let’s Not Overthink Populism

It’s all the rage today on both the Right and the Left to attempt to define “populism” during the Trump presidency and beyond.

The Climate Cult’s ‘Grave New World’

As a proud debunker of the apocalyptic climate scam, it’s only natural that the climate cult has a plethora of biodegradable slings and arrows to hurl at my person. Among their most common claims is that I use “straw man” arguments to describe the climate cult’s destructive agenda. Yet, no sooner is this straw man

How Our Administrative State Aids Communist China

Racked with “Orange Man Bad” onanism, the Left and its collusion media remain enthralled with their on-Beltway show trial, “The Spy Who Leaked Me”—produced by Deep State-False Light Pictures; directed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.); scripted by Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and his committee staff in collaboration with a hearsay spouting “whistleblower.” As a
