Against Aristocracy

Submitted by Alfonz Cavalier The American Sun recently published an article by a C.A. Schoultz titled ‘A Practical, Aesthetic Defense of Monarchy and Aristocracy.’ While I sympathise with the article’s heroic tone and agree with its points that hierarchy inevitable and attempts to reform a society by liquidating its upper class will always fail, I…

A Reverence For Wood

Submitted by WS “That century of magnificent awareness preceding the Civil War was the age of wood. Wood was not accepted simply as the material for building a new nation—it was an inspiration. Gentle to the touch, exquisite to contemplate, tractable in creative hands, stronger by weight than iron, wood was, as William Penn had…

Bryan, Bernie, and the Soul of the American Worker

Submitted by Jackson Andrews (@liftoffstocks) Over the last 150 years, there has been much discussion in the United States over the plight of the worker and the state of society. Wages, working conditions, and billionaires have been constant themes in the discussion over the plight of the worker in America. This discussion has continued today,…

No Meaning: TikTok Nurses and the Triviality of the American Culture Machine

Submitted by Hai Jinx When coronachan was first unfolding in China, their western propaganda outlets, such as the SCMP, would frequently post short videos on social media of doctors doing dances upon the announcement of patient recoveries. Fair enough, but what has been unfolding in America is a different story. Because in America we have what…

The Age of the Tiktok Nurse

By Claire Nightingale “[A woman] is usually a success as a sick-nurse, for that profession requires ingenuity, quick comprehension, courage in the face of novel and disconcerting situations, and above all, a capacity for penetrating and dominating character.”– HL Mencken, In Defense of Women “She never sleeps, the TikTok nurse. She is dancing, dancing. She…

The ‘80s Core of the New Right

Submitted by Semmelweis “Politics is downstream from culture” Andrew Breitbart famously said, before they killed him.

Culture isn’t just a noun after all, but also a verb—to culture something or someone means to grow it, to shape it in…

Black Monday and the Betrayal of the American Worker

Submitted by Jackson Andrews, @liftoffstocks Over the last 50 years, the United States has gone through a dramatic change, both demographically and economically. Every society experiences some degree of change, but the economic realignment that the United States has endured is unlike anything any society in history had ever inflicted on itself.  Today there is…

Lessons From A Mennonite

Submitted by WS It’s that time of year again. Dread fills me. The beast comes to life with a deep growl. It’s morning time, not too early though. At 8 is when something is expected from this giant lumbering animal. It takes time to warm itself up from the night. Its joints move freely. They’ve…

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…

Barbarism vs. Civilization

Excerpts from the new book, by James LaFond Neck I was running the register at a Baltimore County supermarket in the early autumn of 2010, wearing my orange vest and name tag, slaving away in the most passive and highest pressure capacity in the lowest form of work in postmodern America, clerking at a supermarket. …
