In praise of predation

Nature, “red in tooth and claw” (but not destructive like Reds), often shocks us because its most beautiful creatures are violent and seemingly cruel predators. For example, the elegant raptor that glides so gracefully on the wind will with almost demonic glee seize a small cute mouse and tear it apart. Similarly, the common house…

Idiots confuse degree with exceptions to rule

Idiots possess favorite tactics that allow them to insert questions or objections that are structurally nonsense but parse as language, requiring smart people to pause and spend time analyzing the insanity before realizing it is, on a logical level, nothing but babble. One of their favorite gambits is to insist that reality does not exist….

The rule in sexual assault: self-preservation

Currently a debate rages among our dim-witted fellow egalitarian voters about whether a woman has a right not to be raped. One side argues that women should not ‘have to’ use precautions against rape. In this view, rape simply should not occur and the responsibility for that lies with men, not with women in taking…

Esoteric Social Darwinism

Conventional wisdom, science and ancient religion seem to agree on the necessity for humans to overcome their lower impulses and discipline their minds in order to become functional as human beings. Our lowest impulses are formed of innate motivations to point us toward activities we need to do, like eating, fighting, fleeing and reproduction. Once…

Guilt transfers from Crowd to individual

“There’s strength in numbers.” Among humans, the belief that membership in a group conveys lesser culpability finds great popularity from age to age. People like to believe that when the teacher leaves the room, and children revert to the ways of their simian ancestors, guilt attaches to no one. Similarly when adults bind together into…

The currency of our time

We are our minds. Or rather, we perceive ourselves and our world through our minds, so what we see of reality is composed of thought-objects. The sensible among us try to get as close to approximating reality with those as possible. In our minds, a force greater than gravity exists and holds sway. That force…

A 12-step plan to save humanity

Some say that the decay has not reached critical levels, so we should do nothing. Others say it hovers at the brink of disaster and we must do anything that might have a chance of working now. Some want cadres; others want newspapers; others want to drop out and run away to some obscure place…

Dr. Frankenstein’s multicultural monster

A Husky-Chihuahua mix. A crucial aspect of multiculturalism escapes mention: what exactly is the unit of measurement by which we deem something multicultural or not. In other words, where is the boundary between inside the multicult and outside the multicult? The endgame of the multicult becomes clearer when you consider this. If you were to…

Why the singularity will not happen

Those who want a prediction for our future as a species that is both positive and plausible often turn to the term “singularity.” This refers to a moment when our technology reaches such an advanced stage that it changes human nature and magically creates a new Utopia from our wiser, more advanced selves. Technologies commonly…

They want to keep you busy and tired

Angels know the secret nature of reality through a process of divine insight. But all things evil, including the simplest and dumbest, receive wisdom from beyond in the form of an exacting blueprint for the destruction of good things. Thus even the simplest among us know how to confound the greatest geniuses in an elegant,…
