Working around the middle class

When you are entirely dependent on one entity, you have two choices: either you can work toward its ends and have it reward you, or work around it and find some way to protect yourself from its wrath. In democratic societies, the middle class becomes the entity on which society at large depends. From the…

The kindergarten teacher

Most of us experience our first introduction to the adult world on the first day of school. They usher us into a big room, collect supplies that they will redistribute to others, and teach us the fundamental principle of adulthood: everyone must all get along. This mentality — unassailable because it means well — shows…

The Elizabeth Warren attraction

“Insanity in individuals is something rare — but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.” With these words F.W. Nietzsche described the situation we find ourselves in with modern politics: insanity which punishes those who speak out against it, like a perverse take on The Emperor’s New Clothes. Voters tend toward the…

Good to the good, and bad to the bad

Human reality separates from cosmic reality because human minds are closed systems. If the human does not force his mind to perceive the outside, and makes it analytical decisions based on that, the mind forms a feedback loop where it echoes back to itself as truth what it wishes to be true. In Republic, Plato…

Israel leads the way to revival of nationalism

Conservatives tend to support the idea of Israel because conservatives believe in upholding tradition and the practicality of nationalism. When everyone in a state is of the same type, government is less needed, and society grows from within instead of through carrot-and-stick manipulation by a controlling force. One of the larger Israeli newspapers, Haaretz, has…

A species of poseurs

Where is the root of our downfall? Clearly we are fallen. Some claim Christianity, others democracy and its precursor, equality. An older origin exists however. The fundamental moral challenge to humans involves getting outside of our heads. We are not born solipsists, but social interaction makes us so, paradoxically by causing us to view ourselves…

Interview with Osiris Akkebala

Few people understand nationalism. Most see it as a chance to one-up someone else. Only a rare few realize that one task presents itself to humanity, which is to be healthy. To be healthy we must protect and nurture ourselves and nature, but that requires a sense of the “sacred” to both nature and the…

Why the American Revolution was a mistake

I love America. That statement says nothing about America the political entity. The America I know is a network of good people who through hard work and sacrifice changed a lawless wilderness into a first-rate nation. Very few of them thought about politics much. They fled instability in Europe where troubled regimes enforced ideological loyalty…

Avoid control

I imagine that day 30 of the anarchist commune is the hardest. Everyone arrived, and set up food growth, kitchen, sleeping areas, social zones, and so on. People started doing stuff. But after a few weeks, it got harder. Some work, some don’t. Some “work” at ideology, others don’t. At that point, the commune has…
