The Failure of Multiculturalism The Center - “We have a broken immigration system. Despite saying the right thing, [Suella] Braverman did not take much action to stop it.

In Reply to Beckeld: What Is “the West” Nowadays? The Right - “Where I may disagree most emphatically with Beckeld is in his idealization of the ‘West,’ which is supposedly currently at war with barbarous ‘non-Western enemies.’ From my perspective, much of what we see in the impassioned pro-Hamas protests represents where Western civilization has moved in the last hundred years or more.” Paul Gottfried 11/14/2023
Coming to Terms with a Lifetime of Trauma While in Prison Personal Essay - “The hyper-masculine environment of a prison creates additional impediments. Inmates fear that any sign of weakness might lead another inmate to take advantage, another reason not to speak openly with others.

What One Must Understand about the New Israel War The Right - “The ‘peace process’ and the ‘two-state solution’ are other thought clichés that must be questioned because ultimately whoever speaks of these, or even more generally of a ‘political settlement,’ has not understood the conflict at all.” Benedict Beckeld 11/11/2023

Senatore 11/5/2023
One Little, Two Little, Three Little Indians Poetry - “There’s also a roadside historical marker/noting the massacre of the Lee family/by ‘an Indian war party’ in 1782.” W. D. Ehrhart 11/4/2023
