Why Aren’t the Commissars Satisfied?

If the 2010s were defined by the “soft” censorship of tech-company deplatforming, the 2020s are more likely to see a return to the more primal, hard censorship of state repression: a censorship more akin to the twentieth-century totalitarian regimes than anything we are accustomed to seeing in twenty-first century America. This is a somewhat strange…

Who Drew First Blood + Five Friday Reads 11/15/19

They will never accept culpability. Whenever I wrote on Weimerica and started noticing that the elite media was noticing Weimar similarities, I would find media members stunned and shocked that a reaction or any push-back was happening. Why? How come? Where did this come from? It grew tiresome. It applies to everything. White flight. Why…

A Quad Cities Newcomer Perspective

Note: This was intended for publishing in one of the local papers for Davenport, IA. The Quad City Times, and the Catholic Messenger both refused to publish it. Greetings to my fellow residents of the Quad cities.  I am new here, having just relocated here from the Baltimore area.  After about a week in town…

Serial Experiments Cybernetics Layer 01: Wiener

“Cybernetics [is] control and communication in the animal and the machine.” – Norbert Wiener This is the first in what will be a series on cybernetics.

Rebooted Goddess Culture

The end of men. Gaia. The trans push. Toxic masculinity. These are formerly marginal ideas that now have infected the mainstream. Every advertisement pushes the same narrative. Every instance where gender is brought up recognizes these trends. Politicians and their publicity teams work on framing arguments to play on emotions, knowing this works on women…

Clean Streets, USA

Artists often begin their careers by imitating the work of others. The act of imitation in this context is not a form of theft, but rather, a means for the artist to develop his skill until he comes to maturity. With this thought in mind, I can’t help but think of Detroit as an adolescent…

Progressive Destruction

It is said in our sphere that the right is order and the left is chaos. This is not exactly true as the progressive left sets up an order that begets chaos, requiring more solutions that the central power can provide. It is a system of entropy, but still a system. It is a system…

Augusto Del Noce and Our Crisis

The subject of modernity is a well-worn saw among traditionalists and right-wingers. Modernity is the second greatest villain in the trad panoply of baddies after only Satan himself. And not without reason. Once the periodization scheme of antiquity, medieval, and modernity—with the latter being inaugurated by the Protestant Reformation and Enlightenment—is delineated, it’s fairly natural…

The Ever-Present Puritan

There is a half-cocked theory in one of George Orwell’s essays that I have been eager to steal. It is not a true theft, of course, if I give some credit to Orwell for the inspiration, so this is my obligatory nod to that great essayist. I feel as if he stumbled on an idea…
