This week the U.S. House Judiciary Committee re-visited the issue of reparations for slavery. Most of the discussion–minus one brilliant presentation by the youngest African-American to testify–showed an abysmal ignorance of history and what we should learn from it.
As the lazy, hazy days of summer come upon us, I recommend to you my ten favorite history books.
You especially must not miss The Last History Book–and other summer reading.
It appears that “socialism” stands at the forefront of the 2020 election with a multitude of Democratic hopefuls jumping into the race while espousing its tenets.
I detailed recently the naive absurdity of the “Green New Deal” popularized by New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Last week I shared my own eye-witness report on what socialism/communism does to cripple and impoverish nations.

Some years ago I read an article in which George Verwer, the founder of Operation Mobilization, was asked a critical question: “What is the greatest NEED in the world today?”

Spiritual deception–and its temperature is rising.
