I read today that Nathaniel Branden has died at the age of 84. In my view, the Psychology of Self Esteem, his first book on this topic, is one of the best I have ever read.

On November 20th, 2014, Lawbreaker-in-Chief Barack Obama is going to exercise profound legal power he doesn't have. He's going to assert massive governmental authority he lacks. This is the act of a criminal and tyrant. For this he should be immediately removed from office and jailed for life.

“Education and the Racist Road to Barbarism,” which is now available for 99¢ as a Kindle Book on Amazon.com, is a demonstration of the objective superiority of Western Civilization and slap in the face of cultural relativism and political correctness.

In this article I shall attempt to highlight what I see as a perversion concerning the historical meaning and morphology of the word property as published by etymological dictionaries, and to demonstrate how it unwittingly supports a socialist viewpoint and not a capitalist or rights-affirming one. I shall also try to put right the error.

Greg Sandow, music critic and Juilliard teacher, cried a few months ago when he watched The Great Caruso. I cried when I read his article about it just now.

"Lanza, Hollywood or not, is, with no caveats, one of the very greatest — most powerful, most passionate, most communicative, most thrilling, most idiomatic, most faithful to the words, most vocally splendid — Italian tenors who ever lived. Soars up to high C like he’s thrilling with joy on a big drop on a roller coaster."

Gaza, Hamas, Israel, Corpses, and Context
By Edward Hudgins

July 23, 2014 — Television newscasts over the past week have featured videos of corpses, including the bodies of children, piled in hospitals and morgues in Gaza, surrounded by grieving family and friends. The natural and angry human reaction to such scenes is, “What monsters did this?” But the rational response should also be, “What is the full context of this suffering and death?”
