Help us improve the state of public discourse.

A Government Is More Than Capable of Addressing Multiple Crises At Once The Center - “So, to be clear, I largely favor reducing the power of the very federal government being discussed in this piece, but that is quite different from arguing that, at its current scope and scale, it is somehow incapable of addressing multiple priorities at once.” Erich J. Prince 3/20/2023

John Cribb: What We Can Learn from Abraham Lincoln The Center - “All of the sudden, I was on the phone with Mike Pence… ‘I just finished Old Abe last night, and I had to track you down and tell you how much I loved it, and it’s the best book about Lincoln I’ve ever read.’ And, for ten minutes, he just wanted to talk about Lincoln.” Erich J. Prince 3/18/2023

Review: Waller Newell’s “Tyranny and Revolution: Rousseau to Heidegger” The Center - “Beginning with Jean-Jacques Rousseau, proceeding through the luminaries of German Idealism and Romanticism—climaxing with Hegel—then marching beyond Hegel to Marx, Nietzsche, and Heidegger, Newell gives a reading of philosophy gone wrong.” Paul Krause 3/8/2023
Internet Censorship: Democrats, Remember You Could Be Out of Power One Day The Center - “The mainstream media has largely ignored the unsettling censorship tactics of the Biden administration, and Democrats—all the while—clearly cannot imagine a future Republican administration following this administration’s lead and censoring content that does not support the new administration’s political narrative or agenda.” Mike Matthys 3/7/2023
A Happy Retirement: A High Bar for High Achievers The Center - “I had lost my ambition and with it my identity. Without CEO status, who was I? If I was not leading a company, what was my purpose?

Trueman performs a thorough but concise excavation of the intellectual, philosophical, and metaphysical currents that he sees as moving below the crashing waves of our present cultural storm.” Henry George 2/21/2023
The Tide Poetry - “‘Where now security, what to trust?’/The cycle of an invisible moon has/Our harbor in its force, another period/Has begun: the existing limits to be tested.” Harold Jones 2/19/2023
From Tanks to Think Tanks The Right - “One can judge the winds of change in foreign policy by the sudden proliferation of think tanks piping up and stating the obvious.
