The following is a summary of the June 2024 issue of The St. Croix Review.

Barry MacDonald, in “Doublethink” compares the peculiar insanity of American Leftists with the Big Brother tyrants in George Orwell’s 1984.

Paul Kengor, in “You Can Never Have Enough — Kids,” makes the case for having children (our happiness depends on it!); in “Pearl Harbor and the Vanishing WWII Vet,” he laments the passing of more than American soldiers. He mourns the loss of a vanished world in which patriotism was a central feature. In “The Faith of the RFKs” he examines the faith of both Robert F. Kennedy, Junior and Senior, and finds a family steeped in Catholicism.

Mark Hendrickson, in “Climate Change Socialism on the Attack” he exposes the Marxist revolution hidden inside “Green Energy” rhetoric; in “In Memoriam: Willie Mays, 1931-2024,” he pays tribute to an extraordinary baseball player, and a noble human being; in “Memorial Day 2024: Contemplations on the Past and Future,” he considers the sacrifices of American soldiers on the battlefields of Europe, the reasons for their sacrifices, and the price of continued liberty; in “Harvard’s Bigger Problem Is Our Society’s Bigger Problem,” he writes that “cheating, plagiarism (a form of theft), fake science, data fudging, and fabricating are endemic and far-reaching” in American academia, U.S. bureaucracies, medical research, and scientific institutions; in “The Ultimate Absurdity of ‘1.5 Degrees C’ and ‘Net Zero’” he debunks two of the climate alarmists’ most prominent talking points.

Allan C. Brownfeld, in “An All-Powerful Executive: Exactly What the Founding Fathers Feared,” writes that the presidency and executive powers have grown over time because, he notes, Americans have become forgetful of their liberties.

Norman D. Howard, “Stealing American Sovereignty,” traces American liberty back to pivots of English history, and he comments on the Biden Administration’s numerous violations of constitutional liberty.

Steven Alan Samson, in Prevarication,” draws upon a wide spectrum of historical and philosophical wisdom to make sense of Leftist attacks on American liberty and prosperity.

Derek Suszko, in The Fall of the Roman Republic: A Narrative and Analytical Comparison with the Contemporary Conditions of the United States of America — (Part 8 of a Series),” examines in detail the dynamics of power that brought the Roman republic to an end.

Francis P. DeStefano, in “Alfred Hitchcock Presents,” reviews six of the famous British director’s films; in “More Film Noir,” he reviews seven classics.

Jigs Gardner, in “Letters from a Conservative Farmer: Versed in Country Things — the Test of Winter,” writes about the subtleties of managing animals, including the slaughter of pigs; and he shares his recognition that he grew to be dramatically different from his former academic colleagues.

Jigs Gardner, in “Writers for Conservatives: 11 — Arnold Bennett,” reviews the work of the English novelist of the early 20th century.
