The Forgotten Genocide: North Korea’s Prison State

Never in the post-Holocaust era has an ongoing genocide been treated with such negligence and insouciance. Not only have millions of North Koreans died in a state-organized famine, but masses continue to suffer unrestrained violence and brutality in the country’s prison camps, where an estimated quarter of a million political prisoners, one-third of them children, are currently being forced to perform slave labor and are routinely subjected to systematic torture and rape, brutal forced abortions and infanticide, biological and chemical weapons experiments, and summary executions.

Oops! Updated NASA Data Reveals No Global Warming Polar Ice Retreat

Updated data from NASA satellite instruments reveal the Earth’s polar ice caps have not receded at all since the satellite instruments began measuring the ice caps in 1979. Since the end of 2012, moreover, total polar ice extent has largely remained above the post-1979 average. The updated data contradict one of the most frequently asserted global warming claims – that global warming is causing the polar ice caps to recede.

The End of Reform in China Authoritarian Adaptation Hits a Wall

Since the start of its post-Mao reforms in the late 1970s, the communist regime in China has repeatedly defied predictions of its impending demise. The key to its success lies in what one might call “authoritarian adaptation”—the use of policy reforms to substitute for fundamental institutional change. The need for further reforms still exists, due to widespread corruption, rising inequality, slowing growth, and environmental problems. But the era of authoritarian adaptation is reaching its end, because there is not much potential for further evolution within China’s current authoritarian framework. A self-strengthening equilibrium of stagnation is being formed, which will be hard to break without some major economic, social, or international shock.

Why Does the Left Kowtow to Islam?

Why is it that a large segment of left has embraced a code of appeasing “sensitivity” toward Islam—when they are its obvious next victims? Why do they wring their hands over “microagressions,” while urging us not to provoke people who execute homosexuals and throw acid in women’s faces? Why does the left kowtow to Islam?

What Caused Capitalism? Assessing the Roles of the West and the Rest

Once upon a time, smart people thought the world was flat. As globalization took off, economists pointed to spreading market forces that allowed consumers to buy similar things for the same prices around the world. Others invoked the expansion of liberalism and democracy after the Cold War. For a while, it seemed as if the West’s political and economic ways really had won out. But the euphoric days of flat talk now seem like a bygone era, replaced by gloom and anxiety.

Climate Hypocrites and the Media that Love Them: The not-so-green habits of Hollywood gasbags

Journalists help promote Hollywood celebrities while condemning average Americans for causing climate change. The same media go out of their way to ignore or excuse the hypocrisy of celebrity “environmentalists” who fly their private jets around the world, rent mega-yachts and live in massive mansions.

Beyond Crimea: What Vladimir Putin Really Wants

Ukraine is lost. At least lost as many of us had once imagined it—as a potential member of the European Union and, perhaps one day, of NATO. Thank the Kremlin’s visionary leader for that. It’s striking how confidently and quickly Russian President Vladimir Putin gobbled up Crimea. Although it was a clear-cut case of unprovoked aggression, followed by annexation, the United States and its allies were unable to lift a finger.

How Civilizations Collapse — Is U.S. Next?

Why did Rome and Byzantium fall apart after centuries of success? What causes civilizations to collapse, from a dysfunctional 4th-century-B.C. Athens to contemporary bankrupt Greece? The answer is usually not enemies at the gates, but the pathologies inside them.

Russia Using WW2 Myths To Fuel Militant New Patriotism

"As long as the war is remembered, everything is justified", says political analyst Dmitry Oreshkin. With Russia preparing to mark 70 years since the conflict in which 25 million Soviets lost their lives, many anticipate a state-led exploitation of patriotism, led by Putin. "The escape into a myth that creates unity is very convenient", a historian explains. This report takes us to the frontline of the military re-enactment of Stalingrad.

As the World Turns: Will the West Prevail?

It has been assumed, since the end of the Cold War, that globalization is irreversible and that technologies, cultures, and markets are spreading, merging, and interacting at an ever quicker pace. This is certainly true. But what if, in addition to globalizing, the world is also splitting into separate and antagonistic sub-worlds? Two of them in particular, which ironically came into existence and have been growing as free riders in the Western-shaped universe, now pose a threat to the West.

FORTRESS EUROPE: Behind the Continent's Migrant Crisis

if the Mediterranean is once again the soft underbelly of the continent, it is not only because Europe cannot figure out whether to let in the boatloads of people who seek refuge on its shores.

Free Speech, No Compromise: Pamela Geller might be a provocateur, but she has the right to free expression.

We all know by now that many Muslims object to people drawing the prophet—and that a small minority of Muslims objects enough to kill over it. Therefore, the thinking goes, anyone who exhibits drawings of the prophet is asking for it.

Europe's Shattered Dream of Order: How Putin Is Disrupting the 
Atlantic Alliance

Until recently, most Europeans believed that their post–Cold War security order held universal appeal and could be a model for the rest of the world. This conviction was hardly surprising, since Europe has often played a central role in global affairs. Russia shattered that assumption when it invaded Crimea.

The Clinton Cash Scandals: Hill and Bill can’t hide from shady deals exposed in ‘Clinton Cash’

The Clintons have been playing the political press for idiots. Revealing what they’ve been up to took a little bit of work. It wasn’t obvious. While Bill Clinton was giving a speech about fighting AIDS in Africa, or about educating girls in Asia, reporters simply regurgitated the press release. They didn’t ask: Who’s that shady guy standing next to Bill? What are his interests? How much money has he given to, or raised for, Bill, Hillary and their foundation? And what favorable treatment did the shady guy subsequently receive from Hillary?
