EDITORIAL: Sweden beginning to look like everywhere else

ANALYSIS/OPINION: For decades, America’s liberals have looked across the Atlantic with envy. France has socialized medicine. Germany has strong trade unions. Italy and France have excellent food. (Sometimes envy is understandable.) Sweden has often been particularly idealized. Indeed, certain delicate Democrats were once mocked by red-meat conservatives as “Volvo-and-beansprout” liberals. With lavish welfare spending (and Read More…

EDITORIAL: Calming the fury over campus romps

ANALYSIS/OPINION: Once upon a time on campus the sexes (nobody but verbs and nouns worried about “gender”) occupied separate dormitories and women’s dorms had locked doors when someone turned out the lights. Now campuses everywhere have co-ed dorms, some with “gender-neutral housing,” where students can share a room with either sex. To no rational person’s Read More…

EDITORIAL: Nike's $4 billion fumble

ANALYSIS/OPINION: Americans love villains, or at least love to hate them. Darth Vader beating up on dashing Luke Skywalker and Lord Voldemort scaring the innocent young Harry Potter are the stuff of tales that affirm the triumph of good over evil. When the script is flipped and the anti-hero prevails, audiences boo, hiss and jeer. Read More…

EDITORIAL: Brett Kavanaugh sits for questions, and Democrats produce only a lot of noise

ANALYSIS/OPINION: The Democrats, notably including the editors of The New York Times, have decided that the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings are but a charade, and they’re right for once. But they’re right, alas, for the wrong reasons. The Democrats, based on their performance since Brett Kavanaugh’s name was first sent to the U.S. Senate, regard the Read More…

EDITORIAL: Just saying 'OK' to drugs

ANALYSIS/OPINION: No one asks to be born. Yet the dawning of self-realization brings the inescapable challenge to make the best of life. Many “kill it,” figuratively speaking, surmounting the hurdles and making their time on earth a blessing to themselves and to their fellow men (and women, too, if it’s really necessary to say it).
