Most of us learned the key ideas of the Declaration of Independence in school: that “all men are created equal,” “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,” that government’s job is “to secure these rights.” This was a radical departure from the way things had always been.

The Western world has produced some of the most prosperous and most free civilizations on earth. What makes the West exceptional?

Yesterday, Sunday May 22, 2016 was the Thirteenth Annual Ariel Avrech Memorial Lecture featuring Ben Shapiro. His topic, “How You Can Save Israel.”
Because the left is an intolerant fascist movement that uses violence and intimidation to further their Jew-hating program we kept the location of the event a secret, except for those who were invited.
In spite of the secrecy, this was our biggest event so far. Over 200 people attended.
