America’s Ayodhya: Hindutva’s Lessons for the March on the Capitol

By Nick Pacek After months, even years, of increasingly heated and apocalyptic rhetoric, right wing protestors storm a “sacred” building after instigation by a leader who did not think they would actually follow through on it. A nation looks on captivated as events unfold on television, watching as the crowd discovers that, when they push…

Priming The Cult

Submitted by a polite observer Earlier this year, the Sun had a nice rundown of why the ’20s will be a grand time for cults. Watching the events of 2020, it was easy to see the big cult that was growing before our eyes. The Woke Cult stepped out of online spaces and campuses and…

Pogging Out on Capitol Hill: Frictionless Semiotic Control

By @LemurianTime I was enjoying the show at the Capitol the other day, however like so many others I simply viewed it as a performative act. Not one that’s meaningless, but out of desperation. Nonetheless the Capitol building is a symbolic space of power. There’s optics to be spoken of, all kinds of perspectives that…

Office Culture & A Christmas Carol (1943)

Submitted by Bad Billy Pratt I’m too fucking autistic for this, I thought to myself, as I read over the strict set of rules, guidelines, and pre-cautionary measures for my school’s Secret Santa game. In Secret Santa games of old, there was a greater feeling of structurelessness- a kind of free-spirited whimsy- where you made your…

Alchemy & the Coronal World: Nathaniel Parker Willis’ “The Dying Alchymist”

Submitted by Don M. Garabaggio Introduction Nearly two hundred years ago New England poet and journalist Nathaniel Parker Willis (1807-1867) penned a poem titled “The Dying Alchymist”, depicting a man floundering in his ability to save his mortal body from natural death. Willis explores in detail the anthropological and cosmological perspectives of the Alchymist on his deathbed.

Submitted by Ax10d In the progressive world, colonialism is bad. It is only ever European colonialism that is discussed and considered the most wretched form of cultural warfare on the planet. Forget Arab, Mongol, Chinese, etc. colonial expansion. Colonialism is blamed for Africa’s decolonization ills. Colonialism is even used as a comparison for gentrification. Colonialism…

A Letter to Trump Voters from the Philippines

By Juan dela Cruz Dear Trump Voters, Greetings from the Philippines. Quite a few of us are watching the election situation develop over there, and speaking from personal experience, quite a few Filipinos believe that Biden cheated his way to electoral victory. I suspect this is true for other parts of the world as well….

Hyperstitional Blowback: Lords of the Clouds

By @LemurianTime Author’s note: This is part two of my series on Hyperstition, and while it would be instructive to have you read part one, this is a stand-alone piece. “…and she answered from within saying, ‘Here am I.’ Quoth he, ‘Knowest thou who is our guest to-day?’ Replied she, ‘Yes, it is the Lord…

A Practical, Aesthetic Defense of Monarchy and Aristocracy

Submitted by C.A. Shoultz I have debated for some time whether an essay of this nature is necessary in the year 2020. After all, I am far from the first writer to propose a return to hierarchical systems of government, over and against mass democracy and rule by the commons. It’s been done more than…

Audacity of Hope: A Review

Submitted by the County Bureaucrat For a class project, I read “Audacity of Hope” by BO recently. Despite having campaigned for Obama in 2008, I always had a suspicion of the kind of mental peasants (to put this in the ugliest terms imaginable, true goyim) who read and believe Presidential campaign books. During my time…
