Why cultural morality is better than governmental morality

In our busy modern world, we have a tendency to try to handle problems through centralized authorities. As with all things, sometimes that method is the best. With the rise of Libertarianism in America (as Plato predicted would happen at this point in a civilization’s life cycle), we see another method of ruling: letting a […]

Is the Tea Party racist? Why it doesn’t matter.

The left is obsessed with the alleged racism of the Tea Party. What’s more likely is that it’s opposition to replacing the middle class with imported voters and, in turn, a defense of the most vital founding principle of the middle class. Is the Tea Party racist? Some scholar who’s very aware that there’s an […]

On interface layers and our perfect inequality

A couple months ago, on one of our affiliated discussion domains, an interesting dialogue took place. The discussion topic was inspired by an essay by Vijay Prozak at the domain titled Oncology.

The reason why many people buy pets these days may be familiar to what Ted Kackzynski called the power process. In this it […]

Excluded middles

“Stepford wife” as an epithet uses a category as an insult, referring to the movie of the same name from the 1970s. This film preyed on many of the fears of people in that time. In an age of suburbs and mass-produced products, and relatively massive conformity driven by the leftover economic inertia from WWII, […]

All the broken people

Voyeurism is prevalent in our society – in fact, it’s accepted. Where Dear Abby used to be the indulgence of bored housewives, things like Love Letters and similar blogs give people a view into the lives of their neighbors. It’s interesting reading into the relationship issues some people have – many are valid problems that […]
