Against Education

In his 1957 book Germany’s New Conservatism, the German expat-cum-American scholar Klemens von Klemperer makes the case that, during the days of Weimar, “strong Nietzscheans” dominated the revolutionary Right. Such thinkers as Oswald Spengler, Edgar Julius Jung, and Arthur Moeller van den Bruck formed what was then known as “neo-conservatism,” a term that in American…

American Shitshow: Paramilitary Ascendancy

In the previous article, I discussed why the US military is likely to be irrelevant in any civil conflict, aside from perhaps the kind of pro forma checkpoint and cordoning missions that can use large numbers of not necessarily highly motivated troops. However, the United States has a truly vast number of paramilitaries (120K plus…

America took another turn for the weird with the bomb scare delivery spree that made the Reichstag fire look completely legit. If we review this October, the Seretary of Defense and President received ricin, leftist agitators assaulted random Republican candidates, GOP office were firebombed, bird dogging was directed at Republican Senators over a judge, and…

The Inconsistent Radicalization of the Conservative Pundit

Like a lot of people in the Outer Right, I used to be a normie conservative who became slowly “radicalized”.  And as with many in the Outer Right, I have a particular interest in the radicalization (or lack thereof) of some prominent media conservatives who only go so far and no farther. I do not…

The Curious Case of Harry M. Caudill, Esq.

As the dawn faded into a hazy mid- morning of post-War America, millions fled the cities to the suburbs in an early experiment in Dreherite retreat.

Populist Economics – Student Debt Reform

Bouncing around the town square of public discourse is the issue of student debt. Students are loaded with debt to pay for a university education that will educate them for competing in the global economic marketplace and get them a good job. This debt is not dischargeable in bankruptcy. It must be paid off, and…

Five Friday Reads – 10/18/18

Wild week in the circus of political chatter. President Trump will become the first john ever paid by his hooker per a court order. Senator Warren released her DNA test results to show she is anywhere from 1/64th to 1/1024th Native American. Why release results? Why not get a surrogate to take the test? How…

Addiction to a Pretty Face

He not only considered it trivial to commit the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, but he also married Jezebel daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and began to serve Baal and worship him — 1 Kings 16:31 The American Left have long annointed the Republicans as the “stupid party.” Traditionally, this conclusion can…
