  • Why a Former CEO Says Capitalism, Not Socialism, Encourages Morality

    Andy Puzder grew up in a blue-collar home. He went on to be the CEO of a major fast-food company and he credits capitalism for helping him improve his lot in life.

  • Why Conservatives Should Take Heart Despite Socialist Upsurge

    Socialism is the zombie ideology of our era: It fails everywhere, and yet it keeps rising back from the dead.

    Despite embarrassing socialist failures in China, Russia, North Korea, Cuba, and now Venezuela, the true believers march onward. Good intentions are unassailable. The revolution must go on.

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., arguably has done more than any other living American to market socialism to the next generation. And with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., following closely in his wake, rest assured we’ll be contending with socialism for years to come.

    A recent Gallup survey shows that their message is resonating with more and more Americans.… Read More...

  • America Is Still Highly Religious. So Why Do We Keep Liberalizing?

    America Is Still Highly Religious. So Why Do We Keep Liberalizing?

    German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche once declared that “God is dead … and we have killed him.”

    That famous statement rocked Europe nearly 150 years ago. His point was not that God actually died, but that people in the Western world no longer believed in God, and that this loss of faith would only spread.

    Nietzsche’s prediction largely has panned out in Western Europe, where only 15% say they believe in God with absolute certainty. But America has been an exception to this trend, and remains so today.

    A whopping 63% of Americans say they believe in God with absolute certainty, according to Pew Research.… Read More...

  • ‘Unplanned’ Threatens America’s Innocence on Abortion. But It Also Offers Hope.

    ‘Unplanned’ Threatens America’s Innocence on Abortion. But It Also Offers Hope.

    In so many ways, abortion is like other atrocities that blot the pages of history.

    It’s like slavery because it turns certain human beings into the property of others. It’s like the Holocaust because it writes off a whole segment of the population as being “life unworthy of life,” and so sends those human beings to their deaths.

    But abortion is also different from those atrocities because it is shrouded in secrecy. Abortion has claimed more lives than both slavery and the Holocaust, yet it continues year after year in America, thriving in obscurity behind closed doors.

    Deep down, we know what abortion is, but as a society we’ve chosen to shield our consciences from what we do not see.… Read More...

  • Here's In-Depth Analysis of Trump’s Policy Proposals in State of the Union Address

    Here’s In-Depth Analysis of Trump’s Policy Proposals in State of the Union Address

    President Donald Trump delivered his State of the Union address Tuesday night, and Heritage Foundation experts weighed in with analysis of the president’s policy proposals. Here’s what they had to say.

    A Call for Robust Border Security

    President Trump’s remarks on immigration tonight reflected a commonsense, principled approach to the immigration problem that his opponents refuse to acknowledge in their obsession with opposing anything he does.

    President Trump also made a fundamental point that his opponents refuse to recognize when he said, “We have a moral duty to create an immigration system that protects the lives and jobs of our citizens.”

    He pointed out the sharp divide that exists between the public and the Washington establishment when he said, “No issue better illustrates the divide between America’s working class and America’s political class than illegal immigration. … Read More...
