The Closing of the Liberal Mind How Groupthink and Intolerance Define the Left

Kim R. Holmes surveys the state of liberalism in America today and finds that it is becoming its opposite—illiberalism—abandoning the precepts of open-mindedness and respect for individual rights, liberties, and the rule of law upon which the country was founded. Instead, liberalism is becoming an intolerant, rigidly dogmatic ideology that abhors dissent and stifles free speech.

The Reformer How One Liberal Fought to Preempt the Russian Revolution

Besides absolutists of the right (the tsar and his adherents) and left (Lenin and his fellow Bolsheviks), the Russian political landscape in 1917 featured moderates seeking liberal reform and a rapid evolution towards a constitutional monarchy. Vasily Maklakov, a lawyer, legislator and public intellectual, was among the most prominent of these, and the most articulate and sophisticated advocate of the rule of law, the linchpin of liberalism.

The Republic of Virtue How We Tried to Ban Corruption, Failed, and What We Can Do About It

Public corruption is the silent killer of our economy. We’ve spawned the thickest network of patronage and influence ever seen in any country, a crony capitalism in which business partners with government and transfers wealth from the poor to the rich. This is a betrayal of the Framers’ vision for America, and of the Constitution they saw as an anticorruption covenant.

Putin on the March The Russian President's Unchecked Global Advance

In Putin’s Master Plan, Doug Schoen warned that the Russian president had a grand vision to expand his country’s influence around the world, while destabilizing the Western Alliance and delegitimizing the very principles of free societies—especially the political model of democracy’s exemplar, the United States. In Putin on the March, Schoen brings the story up to date, warning that Putin’s mission is no abstraction but rather an active, ongoing campaign, and one that the Russian president has pursued with far more successes than setbacks.

Green Tyranny Exposing the Totalitarian Roots of the Climate Industrial Complex

Climate change was political long before Al Gore first started talking about it. In the 1970s, the Swedish Social Democrats used global warming to get political support for building a string of nuclear power stations. It was the second phase of their war on coal, which began with the acid rain scare and the first big UN environment conference in Stockholm in 1969.

The War on Cops How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe

The War on Cops exposes the truth about officer use of force and explodes the conceit of “mass incarceration.” A rigorous analysis of data shows that crime, not race, drives police actions and prison rates. The growth of proactive policing in the 1990s, along with lengthened sentences for violent crime, saved thousands of minority lives. In fact, Mac Donald argues, no government agency is more dedicated to the proposition that “black lives matter” than today’s data-driven, accountable police department.

Seablindness How Political Neglect is Choking American Seapower and What to Do About It

American seapower has not been as small as it is today since before World War I. Unless reversed, U.S. seapower will continue its decline into the indefinite future as politicians ignore the widening gulf between the cost of modernizing and expanding American seapower, and the resources devoted to this most strategic arm of the nation’s defense.
