Judicial Insanity in Indiana

ecently, a rather shocking “judicial opinion” was handed down by a bare majority of the Indiana Supreme Court, to the effect that it is supposedly illegal under Indiana’s “public policy” for any individual to resist an unlawful search, seizure, arrest, or other assault or detention by rogue law-enforcement officers (or, presumably, any other rogue public […]

Sheep in Sheep’s Clothing

curious discussion was started on the Website of the Inter-American Institute between the Russian geopolitical theorist Aleksandr Dugin and the Brazilian philosopher Olavo de Carvalho.

Right Wing Bolshevism—Part 2

ast September, in the Web magazine, Nina Kouprianova wrote an intriguing article titled Who’s Afraid of Russia Today?

And what encouragement, indeed! In fact, the Southern Poverty Law Center […]

Right Wing Bolshevism—Part 1

few months ago the Website made a laudatory reference to a work by French author Giullaume Faye.

The book proposes the […]

C.S. Lewis’ Christian message in ‘Dawn Treader’

U.S. Foreign Policy: The Art of Strengthening One’s Enemies

The Owners of the World

he historic forces that today fight for power in the world articulate themselves in three projects of global dominance: the “Russian-Chinese” (or “Eurasian”), the “Western” (sometimes mistakenly called “Anglo-American”) and the “Islamic” one. Each of them has a well documented history, which shows their remote origins, the transformation they have gone through in time and […]

The British and Portuguese Philosophies

Dedicated to Nicholas Maxwell t is indeed a fact that the title of my latest article, From Knowledge to Wisdom, is literally the same as Nicolas Maxwell’s work.

Rebuilding Our Nation’s Foundations
