In an earlier era, schools taught 10-year-olds ‘self control’

Special to WorldTribune.com Dennis Prager A couple of weeks ago, the New York Times published a photo of what I had reason to believe was an elementary school classroom. I couldn’t help but notice a big, colorful sign in the classroom that read, “The World Is A Better Place With You In It.” Using an […]

Women, yes women, have done real damage to our country in recent years

Women, yes women, have done real damage to our country in recent years

Special to WorldTribune.com Dennis Prager When I was in college, I read a book by George Gilder, one of the wisest thinkers of the last half-century, titled “Naked Nomads,” which had a deep impact on me. It was about single men and all the pathologies associated with them. For example, Gilder drove home the point […]

God-free for decades: How is the totally secular contemporary world doing?

God-free for decades: How is the totally secular contemporary world doing?

Special to WorldTribune.com Dennis Prager Fewer young Americans affiliate with any organized religion than ever before in American history. This means, therefore, that the children — and certainly the grandchildren — of millions of faithful Christians have abandoned Christianity. The same holds true for Jews, but that decline began somewhat earlier. Until the 20th century, […]

Wisdom is not being taught in secular schools

Wisdom is not being taught in secular schools

Special to WorldTribune.com Dennis Prager The average 12-year-old student at a yeshiva has more wisdom than almost any student at Harvard or most other universities.

Manifest absurdities an amazing number of people believe

The present era is the Age of the Absurd. In terms of the absurdities the cultural elites believe, and have convinced masses of people […]

What the Left has done to women’s happiness

What the Left has done to women’s happiness

Special to WorldTribune.com Dennis Prager As I have documented on a number of occasions, the Left ruins everything it touches. There is no exception. From universities to high schools and now including even elementary schools, to late-night TV, to sports, to the arts and, increasingly, science, the Left is a destruction machine. And nowhere is […]

To save America, American liberals must once and for all spurn the Left

To save America, American liberals must once and for all spurn the Left

Special to WorldTribune.com Dennis Prager America is caught between an external and an internal threat. The external is an economically aggressive and America-hating China and a nuclear-equipped, America-hating Russia; the internal is a non-nuclear, America-hating Left.

This invasion is brought to you by . . . Western environmentalists

Special to WorldTribune.com Dennis Prager For more than 40 years, the environmentalist movement has been warning that global warming is the result of mankind’s burning of fossil fuels and poses an “existential threat” to human and other biological life. This is one of the many grandiose lies the Left uses to reshape, if not destroy, […]

America still a beacon of liberty in a world gone mad . . . for now

Special to WorldTribune.com Dennis Prager Under the pretext of public health, the soul of what is known as the Free West has left most Western countries. Looking at the government overreach and abuses of power in virtually every other Western nation, one can only conclude that America truly is the last free man standing. Here […]
