ALAN KEYES In articles I've written over the past several years, I've pointed to the fact that the natural family is the paradigm of government based on the consent of the governed. I did so most recently, for example, in the post on Newt Gingrich's flight from the battle being waged in its defense. But it was most thoroughly articulated in the third part of the series "The Strategy of Right," and in the section on Natural Right and the Family in the essay In Good Conscience... (more)

ALAN KEYES Hollywood's champions of leftist cant are the very people most likely to clamor for gun control. Yet the industry they serve and profit from pollutes the world with myriad strange images of senseless, vengeful murder -- in movies, TV shows, video games, comic books, etc. Like Adam Lanza (who glutted himself upon their offal), the so-called entertainment industry is pre-occupied with vengeful killing...
