GamerGate reveals leftist MO of passive aggression

Officially, GamerGate is over. The debate about it has only begun, mostly because it was never understood. GamerGate combines several hot-button issues. The first is the corruption of our media, which is why they are eager to declare it over and dead. The second is the intrusion of “social justice warrior” (SJW) politics into the…

The headlines change, but the pattern is the same

This week our media industry generated many interesting media products for us but the basic outlook did not change: like a song in the key of “D,” we may throw in some riffs and licks, but we’re still in the key of civilization collapse inexorably grinding forward because no one has woken from their solipsistic…

Dealing with children

Of all the tasks facing a government, an occupation is the most difficult. As we found out in Iraq, Gaza, Viet Nam and Afghanistan, it means that the military must serve two roles: as a fighting force, and as a police force. The locals always get clever and disguise themselves as civilians, then passive-aggressively attack…

Knowing when to fish or cut bait

After 150 years and countless billions spent, diversity has failed. It has failed blacks, whites and every other race involved. If we continue this policy, we will end up as Brazil II: a multiracial nation fractured by racial discontent where most people live in favelas and social order is barely extant. Throughout history, the nations…

The day brotherhood died

They woke up confused from fractured dreams, then groggily dug through memories to remember only a strange hooded figure, a brief pinch near the neck and then blackness. Now they found themselves bound by ankles and wrists in a tent of plastic sheeting. A figure in a tyvek safety suit with a plastic window in…

What afflicts us

Let us not focus on conservatives, but on a new group: anyone but leftists. Leftists have an ideology that knows no stopping point and refuses to check itself with reality, so as in France and Russia, leftists push societies into increasingly insane plans and eventually totalitarianism, precipitating collapse. All of us out here are varying…

Our era is doomed to ignorance

The truth is never completely pleasant, and therefore is socially unacceptable. Leaders embrace truth and rush at it whenever we find it. This includes scientific and historical truths which are taboo at this time, psychological truths which unnerve us, and most of all, the idea that “other worlds” whether religious (heaven) or secular (morality, “progress”)…

There is only one human problem

Humanity doesn’t have problems. It has one problem: incompetence. Stupidity, laziness, and denial go together. Wherever there are stupid people, these problems spread. Stupid people inherently have these problems, and enough stupid people together make them into a norm. The solution is obvious but not simple. We need more smart people. We need fewer incompetent…

National Cheeseburger Day

Today is National Cheeseburger Day, reminding us that if nothing else democracies show effectiveness at naming commemorative holidays. And yet, the cheeseburger looms over us as a mighty symbol. When our forefathers crept out of caves the word “food” meant a process of hunting, gathering or growing raw materials and then cooking them. As specialization…

They will cut you out

Let me explain a painful realism for the herd out there: all of our policy since 1789 has been based on the idea that society owes each of you survival. In other words, because you are human, society should provide for you to have a job, income, safe housing and so on. Liberal politics arose…
