On the importance of doing nothing

Among the vast tomes of hidden agenda behind this blog lurks a simple commandment: thou shalt spend more time doing nothing. Much of my conversion to conservatism came through the realization that conservatives eliminate unnecessary labor and activity while liberalism increases it. People in our society have forgotten the importance of doing nothing. While we…

Binary decisions

Our minds rebel against the idea, but some decisions are binary: choosing one excludes the other forevermore. For example, you cannot be both tattooed and non-tattooed; you cannot both be a veteran and know the world of not having faced combat. Experience changes us. The same is true of innocence. You cannot both be innocent…

Eccentricity

Has anyone else noticed the fall of eccentricity in the West? We used to have more eccentrics: people who were harmlessly, idiosyncratically but purposefully out of step with whatever everyone else seemed to be doing. In fact, in many ways we cherished this tradition of eccentricity because from it many of our greatest innovations were…

Book fetishism

Among the denizens of this wild planet, minds seize on the popular notion of the importance of books. People who read are good people, we are told, and people who do not are ignorant, bad, stupid and wrong. The common refrain of “read a book” or “educate yourself” rings out across the land, from internet…

Interview with an internet troll

Every society possesses taboos. Healthy societies ban destructive things; dying societies ban dissent. In the distributed totalitarian system of modernity, citizens enforce rules on one another through ostracism and name-calling. In response to this, a community of “trolls” sprung up to bait people with forbidden knowledge and draw them into contradiction when they cannot confront…

Change – No change

A single word sums up the leftist stance. That word is ‘ego’. All for change, the leftist will stop at nothing to have things change. Change, that is, from the way things are, into what they hope – and demand – things should be. They want change, because they do not like the way things…

Hate hateful hater haters hating hatred

A leftist hates haters. Haters, in the opinion of the leftist, are those who disagree with the leftist’s opinion. Therefore, in the opinion of the leftist, it is indisputably justifiable to hate those whom he has subjectively identified as being haters. A leftist hates a differing opinion. The leftist also hates the lack of an…

Check your pretense

Leftists frequently tell other people to “check your privilege.” This implies the assumption that the person has no value of their own, but only is in their position by virtue of this privilege. Otherwise, they would be competent to comment. This ties into the fundamental mysticism of the left, which is that poverty in individuals…

What destroyed the West?

As we get ready for the West to fail and become the new white Brazil, which is what will happen instead of a catastrophic collapse, many are searching back through the past for the origin of our failure. Many have opined that we went wrong merely by size. “Too big to fail” was last year’s…

Networking

Supposing I say what everyone is afraid to think: that our society is dying and that only a few remain who can understand any of importance whatsoever. That most people are committed to the avoidance of any truth in this regard and flee it when it appears. What is left to do? I argue that…
