The Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus…and Its Relationship to a Beautiful Story About Frank Sinatra

THE CORRUPT STATE ATTACKS CHRISTIANS Russia Today, although having frequently a liberal, biased secular outlook featuring frequently what I’d describe as “soft porn” stories (that one of ther video journalists said was the most popular was about a Kazakh bodybuilder who married his sex doll or something equally gruesome) does, on the other hand, have articles and op-editorials that are truly worthwhile, providing information...

Organized Medicine Over-Treats Millions of Healthy People To Spare One Life at a Great Cost To Society

While there are many lessons from the COVID-19 caper that is ongoing, a key revelation is that modern medicine over-treats millions of healthy people to prevent potentially mortal disease or harmful medical events (strokes, heart attacks, cancer, diabetes, viral infection) in just one patient, while subjecting many to avoidable side effects, some which result in life-long debilitation or even death. The current rationale is...

China’s ‘Wolf Warrior’ Diplomats Take on The West on Twitter To Provoke a Reaction, Just Like President Trump Did To Beijing

A belligerent new approach from China to international diplomacy has raised a few eyebrows in the West as foreign ministry officials prove adept at the use of social media to provoke a reaction, as if taught by The Donald himself. Named after two blockbuster films featuring a Chinese soldier who defeats all comers, with foreign mercenaries a favourite, the real-world wolf warriors dispense with the usual diplomatic niceties...

Immolating Parental Rights and Overruling Truth

Abstract: There are important parallels between the 1963 case of the self-immolation of Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thích Quảng Đức and the recent case in British Columbia (2021) of a father who was forced against his will by the court and the state to facilitate the pharmaceutical “sex reassignment” of his teenage daughter. Both cases speak to the desperation of people whose rights were trampled by an invasive all-powerful...

A Very Human Prince

Even though I am not a royalist, I always admired Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. He was often criticised in the media for his many so-called gaffes. However, his formidable track record of saying unfashionable things in public can be taken as a positive testimony to his refusal to follow the rules of media training. Unlike most of the other royals, Philip was often ‘off-message’. In a world in which royalty comes...

Ukraine, Taiwan… Two-Prong US Aggression Toward Russia, China

All people of the world should hope that a multipolar world vision prevails and the destructive American ideology fails – definitively. There is a close parallel in the way the Biden administration is riling up dangerous tensions with Russia and China. The proxy in both cases are the Ukraine and Taiwan, respectively. Washington is citing claims that Russia and China are threatening its allies which, in turn, provides a...

More Terms of Endearment

It takes a very good writer to produce prose that prompts emotions a reader has experienced in an unconnected past. It also takes a good writer to subtly tip off the reader of the change in the character of the American people, one in which toughness has been replaced by weakness. Talleyrand once remarked that no one who had been born after the French Revolution could know how sweet life could be. Larry McMurtry wrote about...

Another, Clearer Take on the Chauvin Trial

I leave it to you to decide why, from the Trayvon Martin case to the George Floyd case, the media has so consistently misrepresented the facts. Whether it is that unskilled reporters are covering these matters, or that the press is simply looking to attract consumers with florid tales, or that the media looks forward to destroying urban areas with false tales of murderous white racists (amid a shortage of real ones), I...

Is a Cultural Revolution Brewing in America?

The lesson of China’s Cultural Revolution in my view is that once the lid blows off, everything that was linear (predictable) goes non-linear (unpredictable). There is a whiff of unease in the air as beneath the cheery veneer of free money for almost everyone, inequality and polarization are rapidly consuming what’s left of common ground in America. Though there are many systemic differences between China and the U.S.,...
