How to be first rate

Donald DeMarco: Arthur Rubinstein begins his lengthy autobiography by paying tribute to his aunt Salomea Meyer. Mrs. Rubinstein had given birth to six children. It would be eight years before she would conceive her seventh. Given her situation, it may be understandable that she was reluctant to give birth to a seventh child.

Fetal erasure

Interim writer, Josie Luetke, Talk Turkey Josie Luetke: Included in the LGBTQ community’s ever-expanding lexicon for their fantasy world is the phrase “trans erasure.” In an Everyday Feminism article, “non-binary” writer Ayesha Sharma claims, “Trans and gender variant people’s existences are overlooked, invalidated, and erased every single day.” Of course, it is the height of gaslighting, of deceit, to attempt [...]

The next awful decades

Rick McGinnis: Perhaps because no place makes us more anxious than the future, there’s a bottomless appetite for predictions about what happens next. Last year Peter Zeihan broke from the usual pack of prognosticators with The End of the World is Just Beginning: Mapping the Collapse of Globalization, a thick but very readable book about the world-changing crisis he says has already [...]

Transgender confusion

Rory Leishman:  Josh Alexander is the Grade 11 student in Renfrew, Ont., who was expelled from his Catholic high school for insisting that transgendered females -- that is to say, boys who think they are girls -- should not be permitted to use the girl’s washrooms.

The transhuman cometh

The last canticle of Dante’s Divine Comedy begins with the poet taking stock of his unprecedented enterprise. Thus far, his imaginative journey has taken him, like the epic heroes of old, to the depths of the underworld. But, unlike them, he does not return to the world. Instead, he passes through the realm of forsaken souls to ascend the purgatorial terraces of [...]

The threat of transhumanism

How do contraception, abortion, transgenderism and euthanasia fit in? Paul Tuns Editor’s Note: Part I appeared in the March edition of The Interim. Technology, as the writer Sean Haylock points out in a 2017 essay in Crisis “is mechanistic (reductively focused on efficient causation), utilitarian (reasoning by a calculus and willing to treat persons as means to an end), and voluntaristic (taking [...]

Censorship spreads like cancer

John Carpay: Censorship spreads like a cancer, starting small but then expanding everywhere. Once upon a time, only 15 years ago, pro-life student clubs were the only groups facing censorship on campus.

Pro-life students were expressly prohibited from setting up recruitment tables at [...]
