Original article "Critical Race hustlers are culture warriors obsessed with destroying anything and everything beautiful.  They are Leninists never content with what they’ve achieved and will not stop until they have poisoned everything we’ve ever held dear."

Original article "We’re on the brink of a slow-motion apocalypse.  A generation or two from now, humans may live in a world where they still have access to amazing old machines left over from a smarter civilization, but lack the brains to make new ones or even service the old ones. A generation or two later, after all the old miracle machines have worn out, feral humans may wander the burnt-out ruins of the civilization we left them, like barbarians gawking at the wonders of Rome."
Original article "If they pelt enough police with ice chunks, smash out enough urgent care clinic windows, and spray paint enough buildings, then capitalism will be abolished and they’ll be able to usher in their communist utopia!"
Original article "The woke police...are looking for any opportunity to impose their will and punish those who deviate from the path they have prescribed for our lives. That explains the seemingly weird fact that often those who defend the canceled person will get canceled even harder than the original victim. In the eyes of the leftist mob, the defender is making a more direct and explicit attack on their authority, and thus is an even greater threat."
Original article "But the deeper source of this movement is that Progressive activists throughout Western schools now are hell-bent on dumbing us down, disconnecting us from our history and from the extraordinary intellectual and artistic legacy of our civilization, and molding younger generations into social justice activists instead of educated patriots. Erasing our historical consciousness and cultural roots, as well as our ability to think critically and to reject a mob mentality, is a prerequisite for...
Column by Douglas Young. Exclusive to STR There are many culprits for why so many Americans of different political persuasions today have trouble maintaining or even starting a rational dialogue on controversial topics without angry emotion and name-calling soon taking over.     Before TV, we were a far more literate society where folks read much more and thought in a more rational, linear manner. But TV is arguably a much...
Column by Douglas Young. Exclusive to STR "Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right . . . . Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past....

Column by Dr. Douglas Young. Exclusive to STR In 2020 COVID fears enabled American elites to grab a record amount of power -- and they love it and don't want to give it up. But if the American people don't take back our constitutional rights in 2021, it could be much more difficult to ever get them back.   There are many rational reasons why so many Americans oppose the severe lockdowns imposed in so...

Original article "The point instead was to destroy and deface most all images of America, from Frederick Douglass and Ulysses S. Grant to Lincoln and World War II heroes such as Churchill. The strategy of the Left was that if they could easily wage war on the bronze and stone of the past without repercussions, then as fear and terror mounted, they could turn to the flesh-and-blood enemies of the people in the present. Anyone who with impunity burns books — including the Bible — vandalizes...

Column by Mark Davis Exclusive to STR "Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard." ~ H. L. Mencken Man, what a show. Is this great or what? The entertainment being produced by the ruling classes and performed by their middle management minions these days is epic. Politicians and bureaucrats, who themselves have been vetted...

Column by Paul Bonneau. Exclusive to STR I just got done watching, for the second time, “The Fierce Wife” on Netflix. This is a series set in Taiwan, about a marriage that is failing. Yes, I suppose it is in the genre of soap operas, and on a subject that is about as ordinary as it gets; but it is a soap opera for people who don’t like soap operas. I watched it for a second time...

Column by Paul Hein. Exclusive to STR The theme of the French Revolution was the lovely phrase Liberty, Equality, Fraternity. No doubt it provided inspiration for the mobs. Mobs, however, are not given to calm, reasoned, discussion, and therefore were evidently oblivious to the inherent contradiction in the phrase. Liberty and equality seldom co-exist when equality is imposed. Politicians, for...

Column by Alex R. Knight III. Exclusive to STR Many moons ago, I published an STRicle here on what certain people calling themselves Government might or might not have known regarding the entire unidentified flying object phenomenon, and what incentives they might've possessed to withhold any such knowledge from public (or any outside) scrutiny. But my, how times have...

Column by Duane Colyar. Exclusive to STR This column explores a common phenomenon that occurs when libertarians express their opinions regarding the state and its operating mechanism, the government.

Alex R. Knight III 2018-06-08 00:00
Column by Alex R. Knight III. Exclusive to STR I’m sure that I’m not simply speaking for myself when I say that I marvel – though with no great pleasure – at the ignorance of leftists who consider their view of the world to be “progressive.” As if 19thCentury socialist, Marxian doctrines and economics – after wreaking almost inconceivable havoc and...

Column by Lawrence M. Ludlow. Exclusive to STR In this wonderfully succinct book, America’s Counter-Revolution: The Constitution Revisited(Griffin & Lash, 2016), Sheldon Richman does a great service that clears the air swirling around the concept of limited government and freedom. Best of all, he explodes two common myths that are repeated with great frequency among people who...

Column by Paul Hein. Exclusive to STR Governments are established by people who, obviously, do so for their own betterment. Specifically, the government is to protect the rights of its founders. A laudable idea, without doubt. A problem arises when the people who actually constitute the government realize that they have power, and power, it must be admitted, corrupts. The result, as we see today...

Column by Paul Hein. Exclusive to STR Several decades ago I joined an organization of my fellow physicians called, appropriately, Iatros.

We were simply individuals with a common concern for the growing role of government in medical care, or, more specifically, medical financing. There was a monthly newsletter carrying articles by...

Exclusive to STR "It is the continuing decline in faith in the politicization of society that has, for well over a year, made the 2008 presidential race the preoccupation of the mainstream media. The media must continue to advertise the products and services of the establishment owners, just as it does for the sellers of prescription drugs and other nostrums. Still, the outcome of the 2008...

Exclusive to STR One of the nice things about not voting is that one can enjoy a little sport at the expense of those who do. Let me share with you an example or three. A few days before November 4th, I visited a nearby town, and first called at the government postal monopoly for some stamps so that I could write to an innocent friend incarcerated in a government prison. Standing in line, I said...

B.R. Merrick 2009-05-13 16:00
Exclusive to STR May 14, 2009 The title of this article comes from 1 Corinthians 13:8. I can't call myself a believer anymore, but I do believe quite strongly in the need for each of us to be charitable. I think it's good for us. I know that for me, it helps to remind me of things I tend to forget, when I think of what it is that I lack. There are plenty of people worse off than I am, or...

Column by D. Saul Weiner. Exclusive to STR There are a lot of heated exchanges going on right now in social media related to vaccination.

Column by Faisal Moghul. Exclusive to STR Almost 30 years ago, cultural critic Neil Postman argued in Amusing Ourselves to Death that television’s gradual replacement of the printing press has created a dumbed-down culture driven by mindless entertainment.
