There’s A Problem In The Upper Reaches Of Our Military

There’s A Problem In The Upper Reaches Of Our Military

by Victor Davis Hanson, It is the beginning of a never-ending bad dream. Joe Biden and the Pentagon have managed to birth a new terrorist haven, destroy much of U.S. strategic deterrence, and alienate our allies and much of the country. In the hours after the horrific deaths of 13 service members, we have been reassured […]

Vaccination Weaponization

Vaccination Weaponization

By Victor Davis Hanson It was always going to be Herculean to inoculate, with an untried vaccine, a multi-ethnic nation of 330 million, across a vast continent—in an era when the media routinely warps the daily news.  Some minorities understandably harbored distrust of prior government vaccination programs.  Nearly 40 million foreign residents in America are from countries where […]

Incompetence + Arrogance = Woke

Incompetence + Arrogance = Woke

By Victor Davis Hanson We know the nature of mass hysterias in history, and how they can overwhelm and paralyze what seem to be stable societies.   We know the roots and origins of the cult of wokeness.   And we know, too, how such insanity—from the Salem witch trials to Jacobinism to McCarthyism—can spread, despite alienating most […]

The American Descent Into Madness

The American Descent Into Madness

Commentary | Eeyore’s Cabinet: The Decadent Culture

Commentary | Eeyore’s Cabinet: The Decadent Culture

Column | Victor Davis Hanson Private Papers I’ve been reading the Satyricon again, which I taught for a number of years in early imperial Latin literature classes for advanced Latin students. The Latin, outside of the slang and neologisms, and the fragmented text, is pretty easy. The style flows. The Cena Trimalchionis is a brilliant damnation of the combination […]

Commentary | Eeyore’s Cabinet: The Obscene Word “Merit”

COLUMN By Victor Davis Hanson  Just appearing this week in the news are stories that our elite colleges have sent out letters of admissions. White applicants at many universities have been accepted at historic lows of about 28 percent (of a population base of 68-70 percent), despite the supposedly cherished tradition of ‘proportional representation.’  Will the most […]

Laudator Temporis Acti

Laudator Temporis Acti

COLUMN By Victor Davis Hanson History is not the melodrama of faceless collectives, but a tragedy of complexities.  We should not go quietly into the night and allow a current affluent, leisured and pampered generation to hijack the past, and damn it to perdition. Given the present’s own meager achievements, it has not earned the […]

There are 10 new ideas that are changing America, maybe permanently.   1) Money is a construct. It can be created from thin air. Annual deficits and aggregate national debt no longer matter much.  Prior presidents ran up huge […]
