Was COVID-19 Our Neutron Bomb?

Was COVID-19 Our Neutron Bomb?

    By Victor Davis Hanson If Biden and his team get what they wish—a neo-socialist, big government transformation—we will enter tough times. But not yet and perhaps not until after 2022. In the 1970s and 1980s, furor arose over our possible use of the “neutron bomb” that macabrely would “kill people, but not destroy […]

Assault on the Capitol Has Let Loose the Electronic Octopus

Assault on the Capitol Has Let Loose the Electronic Octopus

    By Victor Davis Hanson Two days after the 2020 election, a defiant Kathy Griffin retweeted the notorious picture of her holding a prop that looked like the bloody head of a decapitated Donald Trump. Earlier last year, Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, tweeted out a call to his followers to destroy Israel. Both […]

The Scars of 2020

The Scars of 2020

    By Victor Davis Hanson The summer of COVID-19, quarantines, riot and arson, and an absence of confidence in the sanctity of voting ended with deep wounds on the body politic—wounds we will bear from now on. Amid plague, national lockdown, riot and arson, iconoclasm, recession, and the most contested voting in history, the […]

Cultural Suicide Is Painless

Cultural Suicide Is Painless

    By Victor Davis Hanson In February, New York was the world’s most dynamic metropolis. By August, the city was more like the ruins of Ephesus. It is not all that hard to blow up a culture. You can do it in a summer if you haven’t much worry about others. When you loot […]

Trumpism—A Look Backward and Forward to November

Trumpism—A Look Backward and Forward to November

    By Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness Between the abyss and what goes on in Portland and the Magnificent Mile, there is for the moment nothing else but Trump standing in the breach. Perhaps 70 percent of Trumpism remains a hodgepodge of Reaganism: strong defense, realist foreign policy, deregulation, smaller government, big deficits, tax […]

Who or What Exactly Is Running Against Trump?

Who or What Exactly Is Running Against Trump?

    By Victor Davis Hanson, Americian Greatness The inner-Biden at 77 is turning out to be an unabashed bigot in the age of “cancel culture” and thought crimes that has apparently declared him immune from the opprobrium reserved for any such speech. As we enter the final 90 days of the November presidential campaign, […]

Trump Needs to Scale the Real Wall of 2020

Trump Needs to Scale the Real Wall of 2020

    By Victor Davis Hanson The president should emphasize not just the efficacy of his administration but its effects on real people. Focus on “Restoration 2021.” Donald Trump is trying to break through a 2020 wall.  By January 2019, after over three years of failed efforts to impeach him, sue him, indict him, impoverish […]

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 Left Is What It Once Loathed

The Left Is What It Once Loathed

    By Victor Davis Hanson, American Greatness Compare the current progressive view about civil liberties against the old liberal positions of the past. Surveillance and spying on U.S. citizens? Remember liberal Senator Frank Church of Idaho and his 1975 post-Watergate select Senate investigative committee? It found the CIA, FBI, and NSA improperly over three […]

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, […]
