Book Review: South Africa’s War Against Capitalism

Apartheid is ending in South Africa. The economic barriers and social restrictions that have stood in the way of greater black-African participation in South African society are being dismantled. The release of Nelson Mandela earlier this year symbolized this more than any other single event so far. But what does the future hold in store for South Africa? The African ... [click for more]

Freedom’s Greatest Challenge

At the end of January, President Bush delivered his State of the Union address before the Congress. Two leading themes ran through his speech: the demise of communism and the bright future for America in the post-communist world.

The United States and the Roman Empire

Nearly four decades before the birth of Christ, the Roman orator Cicero offered this sound advice: "The budget should be balanced, public debt should be reduced, the treasury should be rebuilt, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and assistance to foreign hands should be curtailed, lest ...

Let’s Live!

Come on, let's live! It is so easy to die; so easy to give up; so easy to listen to the last note of Gabriel's trumpet. Come on, let's live! It is so easy to become discouraged; so easy to forget to wind life's clock; so easy to forget to shut ... [click for more]

Panama and the Canal: Children of American Imperialism and Socialism

The Conquest of the United States by Spain (1898)

I intend to show that, by the line of action now proposed to us, which we call expansion ... [click for more]

From the President’s Desk

For years, many of us have been arguing that omnipotent government in foreign affairs is just as evil and dangerous, if not more so, than omnipotent government in domestic affairs. But our arguments met with indifference from some devotees of freedom and limited government, because while they could see the evils and dangers of the welfare state, the absence ...

Principles and the Constitution

Several weeks ago, the United States Supreme Court held that certain procedural safeguards in the U.S. Constitution did not extend to foreign citizens under certain circumstances. The case was noteworthy not just for its holding but, more important, for what it connotes with respect to the Constitution and the desire by U.S. public officials to violate its principles.
