Stripmining Education

It is common essay fodder now to write about the futile ways the system tries to fix education.

Imperial Growing Pains

A curious thing happens reading revisionist and dissident outlets with regards to the American Empire. It just magically appeared in 1945 after World War Two and has been humming since.

CRISPR Children

CRISPR babies! Oh no it’s Gattaca! Oh no the rich will get a huge leg up! Oh no it is eugenics! These fears are actually horribly misplaced and reflect the poor politics of our time.

Last week’s links sent readers to a piece on Houellebecq by Caldwell, which is a glance at the tragic state of Western masculinity.
