Feminism: A War on Masculinity

By Elise DeYoung Elizabeth Cady Stanton and other founding feminists wrote disdain for men into the fabric of their radical movement by penning these words in the 1848 Declaration of Sentiments:                “The history of mankind is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations on the part of man toward woman, having in direct object […]

Feminism: An Anti-Choice Movement

By Elise DeYoung There is a myth surrounding the ideology of feminism that has been carefully crafted by its makers. This myth is that feminism is a movement that promotes a woman’s right to choose. Slogans saying women have the right to choose to kill their babies; marketing that encourages women to choose to attend […]

Electoral College—The Purpose & Process

By Elise DeYoung Let’s examine the purpose and process of the Electoral College. For several decades, there has been a simmering debate over whether or not we should abolish the Electoral College. Especially since the 2000 and 2016 elections, when the Electoral College elected President Bush and then President Trump despite losing the popular vote, […]

The Necessity of the Nuclear Family

By Elise DeYoung Many say we are living in an age of progression. However, our modern age could accurately be titled “The Age of Regression.” Morally, socially, economically, globally, educationally—we have allowed the poison of individualism and secularism to sweep across our nation, removing tradition in its wake. Possibly the most invaluable tradition that the […]

Feminism: The Radical First Wave

By Elise DeYoung “What began as a movement with the principled intention of equality for women has turned into an abstract ideology that is seeking to overthrow all traditional structures under the guise of women empowerment.” I wrote this over a year ago for a thesis project, which I titled “Behind the Veil of Feminism.” […]

Oklahoma Bill HB 4130 – A Deeper Analysis

By Elise DeYoung In recent months, Oklahoma and Michigan, two states that have historically had low regulation on homeschool freedoms, have sought to pass restrictive laws. These states both claim to be passing homeschool registration and oversight laws to prevent the abuse of home-educated children. Since homeschooling became legal in 1992, many states have tirelessly […]

Can You Define Fascism?

By Elise DeYoung Fascism. It is a term widely used but hardly understood. Are you aware of the history and philosophy surrounding this term? Can you define it? When these questions arise, men like Benito Mussolini are often accredited with the philosophy of fascism, and words such as “authoritarianism” and “right-wing extremism” are frequently given […]

Stand Against Oklahoma Bill HB 4130 Requiring Permission to Homeschool

By Elise DeYoung Recently, House Bill 4130 was introduced to regulate homeschool families in Oklahoma. Americans must strongly oppose this bill to restrict and regulate families, because its narrative of abuse in homeschools is fabricated. This bill would introduce extreme government overreach into the realm of home education. Homeschoolers have the fundamental right of autonomy to educate […]

WEF is an organization founded by Klaus Schwab in 1971 that “engages the foremost political, business, cultural and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.” In other words, WEF annually hosts the world’s elite businessmen, academics, […]
