You Cannot Afford Democracy

You Cannot Afford Democracy

You think you can afford it, but it will bury you. Democracy is what happens when selfish people gather in a group so that they will not be held accountable for their actions. “There’s strength in numbers” — ever hear that one? How do you punish a mob? You do not, and so people form […]

Dissolving The Dead

Dissolving The Dead

Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust. All we are is dust in the wind. Now we can be reduced to even less than that. Bradshaw’s are one of just 14 funeral homes in the world to offer this “green” option. Alkaline hydrolysis is said to be much more environmentally friendly than conventional cremation. They offer […]

Q: What Is The Goal Of Politics? A: The Organic Nation

Q: What Is The Goal Of Politics? A: The Organic Nation

Politics fools us because it erects a false target within the political system itself. That way, instead of trying to do what is right, we do what the system allows. That includes the voters, who require every topic to be distilled to a simplistic level and converted into an emotional contest. They like anger, but […]

Voters Are To Blame For The Manchester Terror Attacks

Get ready for the weepy speeches. Prepare to change your Facebook profile picture. Haul out that piano and play “Imagine” in the burnt ruins. Feel the sense of righteousness surge through your veins as you proclaim allegiance to democracy, equality, liberty, diversity, freedom and tolerance in the face of this senseless violence. You know the […]

Exhaustion Is A Cornerstone Of Modernity

Exhaustion Is A Cornerstone Of Modernity

Clever humans! So fascinated with their own abilities, they created cities that — had they been thinking more clearly — they would have realized are deathtraps. By treating the world like a material substrate to be acted on by the human machine, we made ourselves into machines. We live repetitive lives doing repeated tasks. We […]

What Is The Core Of Western Civilization?

What Is The Core Of Western Civilization?

As we embark on the lengthy process of declaring that Western Civilization went down a bad path and crashed, and realize that we must reboot it from the ashes, the question arises as to what the core of Western Civilization is. Some, like Richard Spencer, identify this as “conquest,” or an extension of the Nietzschean […]

The Pipeline, The Goal And The Enemies of a Bountiful Future

The Pipeline, The Goal And The Enemies of a Bountiful Future

So once upon a time, I was the dumb kid in a Complex Analysis Class that I needed to graduate with my Mathematics Degree. I could make like a submarine and resurface above “C” Level. Provided that I sat through a lecture my prof was giving on mapping rock strata using PDEs. I sat there […]

Evil Hubristic Crowdists Gaslight Your Sense Of Inner Knowledge

Evil Hubristic Crowdists Gaslight Your Sense Of Inner Knowledge

What is hubris, which the Greeks identified as the great evil of humankind? It is “me first”: a tendency to put oneself above one’s rightful station in the social order. This can be men pretending to be gods, proles pretending to be kings, or people who care nothing for social order or consequences in reality […]

Leftist Evolution Dogma Possibly Overturned

Leftist Evolution Dogma Possibly Overturned

The Left has maintained a death-grip on academia and the sciences for some time now, but the mantle of ideological conformity is beginning to slip. It seems that the “Out of Africa” theory of human origins may not be as absolute as once thought: Currently, most experts believe that our human lineage split from apes […]

Silicon Valley: New Boss, Same As The Old Boss, But With More Power Over Our Lives

Silicon Valley: New Boss, Same As The Old Boss, But With More Power Over Our Lives

People are suckers for a revolution. If a revolution happens, in their minds it means that everything that went before was bad which by the converse principle, implies that everything “the people” were doing was good; the people were simply victims of the bad. It explains away their failures and omissions, and gives them license […]
