The Tyranny of ‘Equality’

When people claim to be oppressed and demand equality, what happens after they get it? Tim Carney explains the post-Windsor world: On one side is the CEO of the world’s largest company, the president of the United States and a growing chunk of the Fortune 500.

Did You Know …?

“International Women’s Day” (IWD) is a Communist holiday.

This could create the impression of thoughtlessness, and I don’t wish to […]
