‘Consciousness-Raising’ as Advertisement

  The Miami Herald did a story about a would-be transgender teenager who committed suicide at age 17. Rod Dreher examined the ideological issues involved, which prompted this reader comment: All this consciousness-raising of trans issues functions like an advertisement for a product. . . .

Our So-Called ‘Allies’

If you’re old enough to remember the debates that preceded the Iraq War, a key point was the posture of our so-called “allies” in Europe.
