The Unethical Washington Post by Bill Ackman
Originally posted on X (formerly Twitter) on February 10, 2024.   I am sure all of us have had the experience of reading a story about a subject you know well and finding it replete with inaccuracies and falsehoods. One then turns the page and reads an article about a subject one knows less […]
What’s Ethical About That?
There were a number of incidents in the news this past week, all of them troubling, that raise a number of questions. Some of those questions touch on the issue of ethics. See where you land on these recent news episodes. Sonny Hostin of the popular gabfest The View has always maintained that black people […]
The Diversity and Inclusion Scam
On the heals of Dennis Prager’s article, “The Diversity Con,” which appeared in this column earlier this month (see Issue #299), I decided to add my own observations about the DEI movement which is so fashionable and almost ubiquitous in our society, thanks to Left-wing activism. Although this column won’t address the “E” in DEI, […]
Excerpt from the Foreword to The Diversity Con by Dennis Prager
For my bar mitzvah I was given a book about great Jewish athletes. Aside from the predictable jokes about it being a short book, padded with large photos and print, I had little interest in it. One would have expected the book to be a home run as a gift for the teenage Dennis Prager. […]
Inside the Transgender Empire – Parts 4 and 5 of 5 By Christopher F. Rufo
Part 4: Frankenstein Redux In 1818, Mary Shelley wrote the famous novel Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus. The premise of the book is that modern science, stripped from the constraints of ethics and nature, will end up creating monsters. “Trans-affirming” doctors are the post-modern version of the book’s protagonist, Doctor Frankenstein. According to survey data, […]
Inside the Transgender Empire – Part 3 of 5 By Christopher F. Rufo
The Synthesis of All Oppressions Another place my investigation of the trans movement has taken me is Highland Park, Michigan, a city of roughly 9,000 residents located about six miles north of downtown Detroit. Highland Park has been plagued by poverty, violence, and crime for decades. Many of its homes and businesses have been abandoned […]
Inside the Transgender Empire – Part 2 of 5 By Christopher F. Rufo
From the Fringes to the Center The trans movement was hatched, then, on the fringes of American academia. But how did it move so quickly to the center of American public life? Like many other things, it began with a flood of cash, as some of the wealthiest people in the country began devoting enormous […]
Inside the Transgender Empire – Part 1 of 5 by Christopher F. Rufo
The transgender movement is pressing its agenda everywhere. Most publicly, activist teachers are using classrooms to propagandize on its behalf and activist health professionals are promoting the mutilation of children under the euphemistic banner of “gender-affirming care.” The sudden and pervasive rise of this movement provokes two questions: where did it come from, and how […]
Why Israel? Why the Jews?
I was recently asked by someone to write my thoughts on the recent events that took place beginning on October 7th in Israel. I am not happy to do so, but I am willing to do so. We need to begin with an understanding of the origins of both Israel and the Jewish people. This […]
The Death of Normalcy
Something predictable happened recently, followed by something unfathomable. First, the predictable. A young man named Ryan Carson, a 31-year-old poet and community activist, found himself sitting on a bus stop bench in Brooklyn with his girlfriend, 32-year-old Claudia Morales. It was around 4:00 AM, and they had left a wedding reception they had attended on […]
