George Orwell said the real objective of socialism was not happiness but human brotherhood, which explains why so many socialists are unhappy. Their objective is unachievable as well as undesirable. Who, after all, wants to live in a world of seven billion siblings?
"The New Leviathan," a book by David Horowitz and Jacob Laksin that was reviewed in The Washington Times on June 4, mischaracterizes the Pew Charitable Trusts' work and provides erroneous information about our grants to the Tides Center.
David Horowitz has a reputation for the unsparing way he reveals the thinking and tactics of the liberal-progressive side of American politics. He marshals facts into patterns and patterns into indictments. His latest book, "The New Leviathan," co-written with Jacob Laksin, lives up to that reputation. It shows, by the numbers, how the left wing is funded.

Newt Gingrich is a fat target for everyone - so easy to hit. He makes the others in the race jump up and down and sometimes leap sideways, like it or not. He shakes things up. He forces voters to look differently at things they thought they already understood, lulled by habit rather than thought. That may not be the ultimate role for a leader of the Western world, but for now, he's the pause that refreshes.
Life matters. No matter if you believe in or doubt eternity in any form, your existence in time and space, forgotten as it will inevitably be, makes weird sense. David Horowitz makes the point lyrically, almost poetically, in his "A Point in Time: The Search for Redemption in This Life and the Next."
In the first sign of possible change in Republican orthodoxy, potential 2012 presidential hopeful Haley Barbour is speaking out against nation-building - a central focus of U.S. foreign policy for nearly two decades and of President George W. Bush's administration.
To all outward appearances, the just-concluded Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) was a huge success. It was attended by a large, boisterous crowd, a substantial part of which was student-age - a promising indicator of the movement's appeal to the coming generation. A number of luminaries, including several prospective presidential candidates, addressed enthusiastic audiences clearly invigorated by November's successes at the polls.
Oregon lawmakers carefully crafted two laws to prevent pedophiles from using sexually explicit materials to lure and "groom" their child victims. But a panel of three appeals court judges struck down the laws as "overbroad." What will the laws' defenders — Oregon's attorney general and 36 district attorneys — do next?
"Nothing angers leftist feminists more than combining the words 'feminism' and 'Sarah Palin' in a sentence," writes Cassy Fiano at David Horowitz's NewsReal.
What exactly does the Muslim Students Association stand for? Can we take the stated intent of the group at face value, or is there something more sinister behind the MSA?
"One of these days," Hitchens wrote in 1997, "I'm going to write a book called 'Guilty as Hell: A Short History of the American Left.'" He promised a companion volume: "Soft on Crime: The American Right From Nixon to North."
"If the radicals' utopia were actually possible," Mr. Horowitz writes, "it would be criminal not to deceive, to lie, and to murder in order to advance the radical cause."
