Cult Conformity is Un-American

This cultural export—the Hollywood Western—framed a perception about the people who lived on the opposite shores of the Atlantic Ocean. It was an image of frontiersmen of quiet dignity, a people who could think for themselves and possessed the self-sufficiency to go it alone. Rugged nonconformists.

The Power of Dissent

Dissent is intolerable to tyrants. Yet, such regimes have been romanticized by too many: Western leftists, including Jews, feminists, academics, gays, and government officials–the whole bleeding lot of them.

-Mark Twain

Just a few of our favorite cranks, kooks, crackpots, and other zeitgeist-nonconforming outliers who disavowed the gods, defied the priests, challenged orthodoxies, spurned myth, revised the word, reconfigured space, taught the world to see, and changed everything.

The Elegance of True Non-Conformity

It is not uncommon for Jihadis to create an international outrage, debate, and narrative around human rights, brotherhood, right to religion, etc. They get people engaged in loud debates around these while they silently indulge in their favorite hobbies of severing heads and blasting bombs.

Trained-Seal Jews

I am back in the times where you couldn’t turn on the radio or open a newspaper (and you had to open a newspaper to get your “political information” school credit) without hearing (or reading) “we, proud Soviet citizens of Jewish Ethnicity, thoroughly condemn the militarism and barbarity of the Zionist State.”

When You Cannot Create New Music: A Warning from History

The corollary, shared with all dictatorial societies of both Communist and Fascist persuasions, is to subordinate the artist’s individuality to the collectivity. In today’s increasingly anti-democratic, anti-individualistic environment, artistic autonomy and freedom are being undermined by tendentious ideology.

To Hold Together: Meaning, Anti-Semitism, + “Us”

If today’s ascendent Islamic supremacism is more openly anti-Jewish than Nazism, more misogynist than the “patriarchal West” at its worst, sexually repressive beyond any church or cult, and imperialistic in its very self-definition, it has counted on the complicity of what philosophy superstar Judith Butler proudly identifies as the anti-racist, anti-sexist, pro-queer, anti-imperialist “progressive global left.”

Marching to the Beat of Each Other’s Drum

It is profoundly uninspiring to realize that in the United States we have willfully, yes willfully, jettisoned our individualism in favor of group identity. The notion that marginalized groups must think alike is detrimental to the very groups.

Knocking on G-d’s Door: The Heart of True Activism

The essence of activism and advocacy isn’t a fundraising and marketing game. It isn’t staying up to date on the latest social media trends. It isn’t avoiding certain truths as to not lose donor dollars, and it isn’t a popularity contest. It is knocking on G-d’s door.

The Righteous Battle for the Soul of Black America

Right now, your adolescent is fed that their hair color, their nose and lip shapes, their body shape, the way they look, the way they dance, the way they dress is more important than their character, than how they treat people and how they treat themselves.

The Social Psychology of Conformity

Being a nonconformist is not about fighting for the sake of fighting. Nonconformists do not seek to burn things down and watch the smoke settle. They desire to create transformation and positive change.

Insufficient Zeal for the Jihad

Little did 17-year-old me know, however, that standard college acting curriculum in first-rate art colleges included lewd, anti-Semitic screeds against the country in which they stood, received with all the solemnity of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged).
