The following is a summary of the October/November 2014 issue of the St. Croix Review:

In a "Letter to the Editor," Piers Woodriff responds to the mission statement in the June/July editorial, and he comments on the importance of the virtue of honesty that Angus MacDonald practiced in life.

In "Unbridled Power," Barry MacDonald traces the origins of progressive thinking, motives, and methods.

Paul Kengor, in "Death's Progress: Part 2," shows the ever more extreme positions of Progressives concerning abortion and contraception.

Allan C. Brownfeld, in "Every Tragic Incident - Such as That in Missouri - Produces Cries That America Is a 'Racist' Society, but Overlooks a More Complex Reality," points out that the breakdown of the black family has much to do with violence plaguing black males; in "Ferguson, Missouri: Making Things Worse with Al Sharpton Fanning the Flames," he recounts the Tawana Brawley hoax, that Al Sharpton helped to instigate, that helped plunge America into the racial animosity still going on today.

Mark Hendrickson, in "The Flood of Illegal Immigrant Children: Why the Secrecy?" asks many questions about how these children came to America, and why the Obama Administration is behaving in a suspicious manner; in "Deja Vu: Misplaying the Patriotism Card Again," he shows that Obama's henchmen who condemn American executives for moving their company headquarters out of America - to avoid the highest-in-the-world corporate tax rate - are the very henchmen who created the policies that drove the companies away. They leave so that they can survive.

In "Islam Vs. Islamism," Herbert London wonders whether the West can safely assume that Islam is capable of peaceful co-existence with non-Islamic nations.

In "Dealing with Barbarism: V-J Day and Beyond" Marvin J. Folkertsma considers the lengths the U.S. military had to go to to defeat Japan in W.W. II, and wonders whether the West has the resolve to defeat ISIS.

In "Hiroshima," Michas M. Ohnstad writes about his experience of the aftermath of the atomic bombing.

Philip Vander Elst, in "Vindicated by History: Statism's 19th Century Critics," shows, through the writings of profoundly perceptive observers, why liberty and socialism cannot coexist - one must destroy the other.

S. Fred Singer, in "Climate Science Does Not Support IPCC Conclusions," discusses future temperatures and rising sea levels, and shows how the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change twists evidence to reach an alarming result.

Peter Searby, in "Of Hedges, Storytellers, and Home," writes of persevering American folklore, family, culture, and homeschooling-in opposition to our current bureaucratic-heavy educational system.

In "American Memories," Jigs Gardner relates some encounters with Native Americans.

In "Kenneth Grahame and the Cult of Childhood" Jigs Gardner shows, that charming though "children's books" are, they were meant as much for adults as for children.

In "The Follies of Feminism," Fayette Durlin and Peter Jenkin relate stories of political correctness run amok at universities.
