Subsumed into the Zeitgeist Part One: Carmen

Some names and identifying details have been changed to protect the privacy of individuals in the story. Carmen was a Spanish girl from a family of considerable import – most Sevillanos would probably recognize her father’s name. I could argue that her asymmetrical nose was characteristic of her Spanish heritage, but her only hallmark Spanish feature was beady…

BAP, Classical Man, and the Christian Bugman

There is a great anecdote about Karl Marx, relayed to us by Engels, which claims that upon hearing of the abuses to which his work had been employed by his followers, the Old Master responded, “je ne suis pas Marxiste.” Looking about the Catholic world today, I wonder sometimes if St. Thomas of Aquino wouldn’t…

The Sin of Pure Religiosity

“There are millions of quotes about realpolitik, how a lie told often enough becomes the truth, how force determines the conditions of life, but all boil down to the same thing: If you are losing, it is because you are not strong enough, and complaining is not going to help fix that.” – Anonymous Despite…

The Smirk Seen around the World, Part 1: Mobilization of the Narrative.

As everyone knows by now, the events of that fateful day after this year’s March for Life in Washington D.C. between a group of Indigenous activist and the Covington Catholic school boys exposed a deluge of pathologies and pent up aggression that lies beneath the surface of the Cathedral media-culture industry machine. In this multi-part…

The New Right & Family Values

By Jordan Jacob The Efficacy of the Right’s Pursuits The dog days of the public New Right movement in America are dragging on in post-Charlottesville America.

The Jewish Tribal Crack Up

On the edge of the punditry, some observers noticed the hypocrisy of some of the largest advocates for open borders and the soft spot they have for a certain ethnostate with strict immigration controls. The cracks were present even then, but only after Trump’s arrival did they erupt. New York Times has steadily noticed it….

Cloak In Woke – Woke Capital As A Strategy

The gay cries that they are the underdog while all of us scroll past a month’s worth of PRIDE tweets from every corporation on the globe. This is woke capital. The nexus of progressive state religion and big business is out in the open and increasingly obnoxious. Corporations are not the only ones though as…

Hijacked Exploration Instincts

Avoiding the news is a good strategy. The random noise that is recorded and reported often distracts the consumer. The noise generates emotion. One emotion that seems to grow if one were to note the trends in news is confusion or disgust at the degradation of individuals or death of individuals through their need to…

Ethics Without Ethics

Last month, my daughter’s ballet class had a parents’ open house. Five year olds in tutus struggle through basic steps, but it is to share a Kodak moment. Across the floor my daughter and the handful of other girls moved. She laughed with a little towheaded girl when a specific song came on, and that…

The Impossibility of Integralist Reform

One of the best and worst things about getting old is the fact that, in gazing upon a world you’ve seen so wrecked and ruined, your mind’s eye can still attach itself to a present object and recall the way it used to be. I can see in wrinkled and bloated classmates the blushing smiles…
