What Happens When the Madness Ends?

What Happens When the Madness Ends?

    By Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness By Victor Davis Hanson When something cannot go on, it certainly will not go on. But what are the symptoms of what cannot go on and when?  There are two historic red lines and our revolution is getting close to both.  When Normal People Grow Weary  One is […]

The Doctrine of Media Untruth

The Doctrine of Media Untruth

    By Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness As a general rule, when the New York Times, the Washington Post, National Public Radio, Public Broadcasting Service, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, and CNN begin to parrot a narrative, the truth often is found in simply believing just the opposite. Put another way, the media’s “truth” is a good […]

The Thin Façade of Authority

The Thin Façade of Authority

    By Victor Davis Hanson, Amerian Greatness The virus will teach us many things, but one lesson has already been relearned by the American people: there are two, quite different, types of wisdom. One, and the most renowned, is a specialization in education that results in titled degrees and presumed authority. That ensuing prestige, […]

Corona Meltdowns

Corona Meltdowns

  By Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness As the coronavirus outbreak begins to reach its zenith, it remains unclear whether the measures taken to stem its tide will prove sufficient, insufficient, or an overreaction. What is certain, however, is that a number of individuals and entities have behaved shamefully and demonstrated no capacity for leadership […]

California Is a Cruel Medieval State

California Is a Cruel Medieval State

  By Victor Davis Hanson, Anerican Greatness One way of understanding California is simply to invert traditional morality. What for centuries would be considered selfish, callous, and greedy is now recalibrated as caring, empathetic, and generous. The current ethos of evaluating someone by his or her superficial appearance—gender or race—has returned to the premodern values […]

New Impeachment Rules Would Snare Obama

New Impeachment Rules Would Snare Obama

  By Victor Davis Hanson Private Papers Barack Obama’s eight-year tenure was detrimental to the United States, but like most of his nonbelievers, I harbor no animosity for his person. Few critics that I know advocated that Obama be impeached, much less removed from office, before his reelection bid—even amid his worst scandals and dangerous […]

NeverSanders?

NeverSanders?

  By Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness Almost everything the Democratic Left said about Donald Trump causing a Republican Party implosion proved untrue—and yet is proving true this year of the Democrats. Trump’s agenda, for the most part, was Reaganesque, with a few important exceptions—closing the border and enforcing immigration law, getting tough with China’s […]

Reaching Peak Progressivism

Reaching Peak Progressivism

  Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness In 2020 we have finally hit peak progressivism. The adjective “peak”—apex or summit— is often used to describe something that has reached its maximum extent but thereafter will insidiously decline—like supposed U.S. domestic oil production in 2000 when more oil was purportedly taken out of, rather than still in […]

The Limits of American Patience

The Limits of American Patience

  By Victor Davis Hanson | American Greatness Not being willing any longer to be manipulated is not succumbing to isolationism. Wondering whether the United States can afford another liability is not mindless nationalism. Questioning whether America can afford the status quo here and abroad is not heresy. Assuming we can borrow our way out of […]
