An encouraging analysis from C-Fam, on the countries pushing back against cultural colonialism: “ANALYSIS: The Great UN Pushback Against Gender Ideology.” (They also have another encouraging summary of a few of their successes at the international level throughout 2022, for those who would like to read some good news for a change.)

Over at The Spectator, a helpful essay from Samuel Gregg: “Why it isn’t mad to oppose the World Economic Forum.”

Carl Trueman—the author of The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self and Strange New World (which I recently reviewed for The European Conservative—joined gay rights activist Andrew Sullivan for an absolutely fascinating conversation that also serves as a model of civil, civic engagement on the most controversial issues of our day. Give it a listen—it is worth your time.

Nothing to see here, folks: “German Government To Support Sympathetic Play About Pedophilia.” Weird that this sort of thing keeps happening, isn’t it?

One of the key difficulties with implementing any kind of conservative agenda in Canada—social or otherwise—is the fact that, as Tristin Hopper of the National Post has pointed out, Canada has one of the most activist Supreme Courts in the world. In fact, nearly every major controversial issue in the country—from assisted suicide to the violent crime wave—were brought to our communities by the court, not by Parliament.

At National Review, Nate Hochman has a devastating analysis of how the transgender movement hijacked the political scene in South Dakota—a deep red state governed by the GOP: “How Gender Ideology Conquered South Dakota.” This piece could kill Governor Kristi Noem’s ambitions for higher office.

Very good news from Louisiana—this should be promptly implemented by every other state with the legislators to pass it: “Louisiana Implements Age Verification for Accessing Porn Sites.”

***

Also at National Review, Dr. Michael New is debunking the latest pro-abortion myths: “No, Pro-Life Laws Do Not Lead to Higher Female Suicide Rates.”

***

More good news: “France’s Council of State rejects assisted suicide.” Emmanuel Macron, however, is spearheading efforts to legalize euthanasia, so we’ll see where this goes.

As sad as it is, this constitutes a victory in 2023: “Meloni Confirms ‘Father’ and ‘Mother’ Terms on Identity Documents.”

More soon.
