Breaking the Cycle

I recently proposed that what BLM and the “anti-racists” believe is “systemic racism” is really the direct effect of government dependency. I have given a substantial amount of thought to this possibility and what follows is the result. The only substantive connection between white America and the anger of black America is the fact that…

The Ugly Truth

The entire BLM/woke/cancel culture breaks down to one least common denominator: Life isn’t fair. Never has been and will never be. Life has been defeated by those best equipped to fight it on their own terms. As racist as this sounds, black Americans have been domesticated. So many have been fed and sheltered by the…

A Most Political of Pandemics

The real virus in America is the Democrat Party’s addiction to tyranny. On March 17, 2020, I wrote: “This pandemic panic reveals more about the weakness of our society and its dependence on central authority than it does about the effectiveness of our disaster response capability or our health care system. I am amazed at…

Blocking Lanes on the Information Superhighway

Constricting the flow of information is a risk to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness… The left in America seems to believe there is some information people just do not need to know, so their allies at Internet and social media companies help them ban that “forbidden” information, essentially shutting down certain lanes on…

Neat, Plausible and WRONG

“Those are my constitutional rights”, is a statement I often hear when discussing the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to the Constitution of the United States – most often in discussions of the First and Second Amendments. Wrong. Every American, whether natural born or naturalized, has God given rights as defined in the…

Collective Sins

People who favor collectivism (socialism, Marxism, or communism) believe it brings total social and economic equality, that wide swaths of the population can be “equalized” by banning and criminalizing certain disfavored behaviors, as well as the thoughts and beliefs that support those behaviors. If we are all to behave alike, accept the same standards of…

Fun With Dick and Jane

We have all been there. You pack up the family and head to your grandmother’s house for the annual pilgrimage at Christmas or Thanksgiving (or another holiday) and when you arrive, your cousin and his wife are there – with their bratty, undisciplined, ill-behaved pre-pubescent twins, Dick and Jane. You dread the next couple of…

America Has Crossed a New Line

Some friends and I were discussing the seemingly constant string of violent events that only occur when a black person is shot by police, how two black children essentially skated in the murder of an Uber driver and how the amount of media attention in a “mass shooting” is directly proportional to the race of…

A Malicious and Malevolent Presidency

There is something decidedly wrong with the Biden presidency and this is most certainly not a normal administration. They intentionally and openly divide the American people, and policies are enacted with a high degree of retributive malice, prosecuted with evil glee. You can almost hear the Wicked Witch of the West (VP Kamala Harris) cackle,…

What is on the Other Side of the Wall?

Every now and again, I come back around to considering G.K. Chesterton’s “paradox of the gate”. Here it is in Chesterton’s own words from his 1929 book, “The Thing”, in the chapter entitled, “The Drift from Domesticity”: “In the matter of reforming things, as distinct from deforming them, there is one plain and simple principle;…

Nosferatu

Vampires are real. When people say that what is happening today is something out of a dystopian novel, they normally think of “Brave New World” or “1984”. Of course, I see the parallels – more now to Huxley’s dystopian world but strangely enough, I think of “Dracula”. I just finished re-reading the original “Dracula” by…

Biden Agonistes

That Joe Biden is allowed to continue to destroy himself in public to the cacophonous din of the applause of the sycophantic media is prima facie evidence of three things, 1) Biden was shoehorned into office by nefarious and suspicious means as a front for Obama’s revenge tour, 2) the Obama cabal (still ruling the…

An Age of Mad Kings and Queens

We joke about our “ruling elite” and often analogize it to nobility. We are not wrong. There are more similarities than differences, especially in today’s ruling bloodlines. European nobility was notoriously plagued with mental and physical deformities brought about by inbreeding as they sought to keep their bloodlines “pure”. Certainly not unique, Maria I of…

Metanarratives

I am going to warn you right up front: this is long – and most (if not all) readers will not need the level of specificity contained within. You guys are smart and already get it, but I wrote this for sharing with people who have not yet “got it” to help them understand some…

Perfidy of the Democrats

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the…

Abracadabra

The “majority” in America (however you decide to define it – white, Christian, Western European culture) has been, and is constantly being, tested in a very unique way. In the past, want-to-be dictatorial political parties tend to inflame the majority in common cause against some scapegoat minority. For example, in pre-WWII Germany, the negative aim…

Legitimate Illegitimacy

We have a president who achieved his office though unconventional – and in some cases, unusual – electoral means in several key states, of that there is little question among honest people. He won despite a personal lockdown in his basement and socially distanced campaign events where the press made up most of his “crowds”,…

Head On Crash With Reality

One might question why Biden’s military leadership finds it necessary to go after Tucker Carlson – Professor Hayek provides a likely possibility: “It is not difficult to deprive the seat majority of independent thought. But the minority who will retain an inclination to criticize must also be silenced. Public criticism or even expressions of doubt…

Intellectual Agoraphobia

As several states begin to fully open up, we are beginning to hear from people, almost uniformly on the left, who do not want the lockdowns to end. Taylor Lorenz of the New York Times, lately in Tucker Carlson’s crosshairs, tweeted, “The thought of going back to my old routine horrifies me.” Emily Ramshaw, another…
