  • Commentary posted November 6, 2007 by Peter Brookes A Friend in France-Finally

  • Lecture posted March 4, 1993 by Russell Kirk The Meaning of Justice

    The word "justice" is on everyone's lips nowadays, and may signify almost anything. We hear the cry "Peace and Justice!" from folk who would destroy existing societies with fire and sword.

  • Commentary posted January 12, 2015 by Peter Brookes Paris killings an assault on us all

    The brazen attack on the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo in Paris yesterday that killed a dozen was no way to start the New Year — a highly-symbolic point in the book of time when we look to turn the page on the previous 365 days. But for all our attempts to put last year in life’s rear view mirror, it seems that the rampant, exceedingly violent Islamist militancy that…

  • Commentary posted July 2, 2013 by James Jay Carafano, Ph.D. France Embraces the War on Terror

    The world has turned upside down. A few years ago, it was common for Europeans to lecture Americans on how badly Washington had mishandled global terrorism.
