Sexual politics and “The Little Mermaid” (1989)

Ignore the original story; Hans Christian Andersen tapped into something, but he was chewing raw leaf compared to Disney’s crackpipe to the psyche. We’re focused on the 1989 film version that kicked off the Disney renaissance, wherein the pre-internet-saturation generation was permanently mkultra’d into a new consensus mythos via VHS. What did Hollywood manage to…

Afghan Migrants: European Experience, Criminality Statistics, American Future

By PhoenixPhoenix Americans and Europeans who oppose the mass migration of Afghans into their countries do so for primarily different reasons. Americans focus on the impact of unvetted Afghan migrants on the country’s social fabric and on the risk of terrorism. Europeans focus on migrant crime. Both are understandable given recent events. In the US,…

Density Intensity

Real Estate, a crop that can be harvested every month-Samuel J. LeFrak This is a follow up to my article I had written last year and part one on real estate and population density.  It’s no secret that crowds are bad. There was a time not long ago when politicians, environmentalists, engineers, ethnologists and biologists…

Tiger Cub Cope

People are vaxxed and theaters are back. Disney offers their Marvel addicts a fresh dish with the new Shang Chi film. Oh you didn’t know the famous Marvel super hero Shang Chi? That is fine as no one else does either except the comic book store guy from the ’90s. This movie isn’t for you….

9/11 – a Retrospective

There is an ancient Indian saying that something lives only as long as the last person who remembers it. My people have come to trust memory over history. Memory, like fire, is radiant and immutable while history serves only those who seek to control it, those who douse the flame of memory in order to…

Australian Shitshow: And how we burned in the camps

So your government is building camps. This happens. It’s actually pretty common, historically, as the logic of detaining prisoners of war (itself a fairly liberal idea, much more enlightened than the traditional massacre or enslavement and more scalable than ransom) was extended to a domestic or pseudo-domestic population of enemies. Everyone likes to focus on…

Winners, Losers and Links

Winners Australian Bureaucrats – Rebounding hard as the two biggest states have abandoned the zero covid policy approach. Protests and truckers have done work. Wait, what music is that? Is that the tech surveillance initiatives the Australian government wants to implement? You can leave your house and enter the tech panopticon (and forget your devices)….

Epstein Revisited

Submitted by Chet Johnson On August 10, 2019, Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself. You probably haven’t thought deeply about Epstein for some time. Seven months after his “suicide,” COVID-19 became the primary focal point and the single lens through which all world events going forward would be filtered. The story didn’t disappear completely- Ghislaine…

Liberalism’s Sandy Tomb

By Henry Hogan Footage from the Fall of Kabul revealed a stark contrast: as the energetic Taliban stormed toward the capital city, heartened by their rapid and mostly-bloodless recovery of Afghanistan, a dour remnant of the American occupation force fled after twenty long years. Across the outer provinces of Afghanistan, abandoned American airbases stood as…
