Western civilization is undergoing an existential crisis that had its origins several decades ago and that threatens its own survival. The trigger for this crisis is a war between the secularist and Christian values of the Judeo-Christian culture. The former treats religion as the “opium of the masses” and its teachings as “bourgeois values” — […]
A very devout Catholic acquaintance from a Northeastern state asked me recently to refrain from e-mailing her my articles because she had taken a hiatus from politics and my articles dwelled in politics. Is she right or not with her decision? I’d like to address first an issue that has been in my mind since […]
The concept of the “Golden Rule” does not appear anywhere in the Bible. But many extrapolate its meaning from Christ’s Sermon on the Mountain when he said: “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them.” (Matthew 7:12) It’s with this rule in mind that I’d like to address an […]
I was moved by a Facebook post from a friend this week where she reached out to her friends’ better angels and asked them to look after each other in today’s environment, instead of tearing each other down. I’m sure that her motives were well-intentioned, but her aspiration is unrealistic. And here is the reason […]
The main reason for my parents deciding to emigrate to the United States was when the Communist Cuban authorities passed an edict requiring parents to send their children to public schools — with prison time authorized for noncompliance.

When I look at the crisis emanating from illegal aliens trying to cross our southern border, I wonder whether the Biden-Harris Administration is guilty of sheer incompetence or of having a hidden agenda. The number of illegal encounters handled by border security agents has reached over 2 million since Biden reached the Oval Office, and […]
No es raro que las personas que llegan a los Estados Unidos de diferentes países pasen por un doloroso proceso de aculturación. El tiempo que toma se basa en las experiencias individuales y, por supuesto, en el tipo de personalidad de cada uno: lleva más tiempo para los introvertidos. Teniendo en cuenta que viví este […]
British statesman Sir Winston Churchill once declared that “the inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.” I agree with that capitalism, unlike any other economic system in the world, has lifted billions of people out of poverty and provided much hope […]
I take very seriously the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. saying, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Having said this, I considered what Harvard President Larry Summers said about women in the sciences to be totally inaccurate.
