Mark T. Mitchell in RealClearBooks discusses his new book that regards American society and politics as dividing into an increasingly wealthy and self-righteous elite imposing “plutocratic socialism” (plus wokism) over an ever-more dependent and insecure citizenry, while the middle’s freedom, property and independence are continually eroded.

What Population Bomb?

In the 1960s, people listened to Paul Ehrlich’s “Population Bomb” doomsaying and concluded it was bad for children to be born. Policymakers adopted population-trimming policies. But the 21st century is not turning out as expected. Global fertility is collapsing. Glenn H. Reynolds in the New York Post looks at what global population might do over the next century.

Infiltrating a Constitutional Monarchy

In The Spectator, Terry Barnes writes about the recent appointment of Australian Governor-General Samantha Mostyn. Westminster constitutional tradition requires a country’s head of state (as opposed to head of government) to be impartial and apolitical. But Mostyn’s appointment, writes Barnes, amounts to partisan infiltration of the constitutional monarchy – which will have serious implications in the next election.

A “Solution” to Erase Israel

Resurrecting the so-called “two-state solution” – i.e., Israel and a Palestinian state coexisting side-by-side – is the only way to create lasting peace, according to two-time U.S. ambassador to Israel, Martin Indyk. Writing for the Gatestone Institute, Michel Calvo uncovers the fatal problem that advocates like Indyk and President Joe Biden simply ignore while pushing this policy.

“Get Woke, Go Broke”

Why do major corporations and institutions keep finding themselves in hot water after embracing absurd woke notions about gender and race? Glenn H. Reynolds of the New York Post sifts through numerous examples from brand names including Disney, Sports Illustrated, Planet Fitness, Budweiser and Harvard University in search of answers. His conclusion, “Our ruling class is kind of crazy.”
