Ceci est mon discours à la troisième Conférence d’Erkenbrand aux Pays-Bas le samedi 3 novembre 2018.
J’ai de bonnes et de mauvaises nouvelles.
La bonne nouvelle est que tout le monde aime recevoir de bonnes nouvelles. Il est facile d’apporter de bonnes nouvelles et facile d’en recevoir. (more…)
As I stroll lackadaisically through life’s pollen-belching daffodil fields, it occurs to me that I’ve never seen a depressed person with Down syndrome. No matter how sad their lives may look to outsiders, down to the last pumpkin-headed man and woman they seem blissfully ignorant of how they may appear to others. They happily embrace life as if they are clutching a fistful of multicolored balloons. (more…)
Suppose your best friend from when you were a young’un became the meanest hombre ever to leave boot-prints on the ground. It indeed happened, on the wild frontier of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Had Attila the Hun been brought forward in time to meet him, he wouldn’t have challenged a gunslinger like that to a duel at twenty paces.

Modernity is alienating, particularly for men. We all experience this feeling. Even those of us fortunate enough to have reasonably healthy social lives often find ourselves isolated, unable to completely trust people who we believe to be our friends. (more…)
One of the best memories I have is giving the best man’s speech at my best friend’s wedding. I gave that speech 14 years ago and my friend has been married ever since with three great kids. Unfortunately, I have also known men who have lost their property, money, and custody of their children from devastating divorces. (more…)
The Decameron is a novel that is often overshadowed by The Canterbury Tales despite sharing many similarities. Both were written in the 14th century and have a similar narrative structure of various short stories being told by a group of characters. (more…)
A video has been made of Richard Houck’s article concerning one of the less obvious destructive effects immigration and multiculturalism are having on white societies: depriving white children of the ability to form lasting friendships with others like themselves. (more…)
