As we pay tribute this Memorial Day, it’s critical to embrace the grave sacrifices so many have made and continue to make to keep freedom’s torch lit. But just as vital is the recognition that some battles never end.

The tools of totalitarianism are at work globally, implemented under the rubric of political correctness and motivated by multicultural fanaticism, marginalization of certain political castes, or elitist power plays.
