The news of the week is that Elon Musk has bought Twitter and is apparently returning free speech to the platform. For reasons I’ve made clear in last weekend’s Writers’ Bloc with Pox Populi, I remain skeptical of Musk’s intentions and how much benefit white identitarians can derive from this corporate takeover.

Tag: the Leftist mind
NOTE: All names in this memoir are fictional.
Last year I went to a Christmas party in St. Louis, given by a communications group: a catch-all for filmmakers, directors, actors, screenwriters, and the usual wannabes. Having written an award-winning screenplay some years ago, I’m more be than wanna, but the candle of my fifteen minutes of local fame has long since burned out. (more…)
If I ruled the world,
Every day would be the first day of Spring
–Tony Bennett, “If I Ruled the World”
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.–1st Corinthians, 13:11
One at times has to marvel at the hordes on the Left. They cling tenaciously to adolescence; never do they grow up and come to terms with reality. (more…)
On the Murder of Sam Collington: The Liberal Snake Eats One of Its Own
The murder of Sam Collington has the normie in me raging against my dissident self like Norman Bates in a dress.
On November 30 in Philadelphia, a 17-year-old black criminal named Latif Williams shot and killed Collington, who was a white and devoutly Marxist 21-year-old college student. This little news item has put my alter-egos in a tizzy in part because it’s the perfect example of ideology eating itself. A dogmaboros, if you will.
First, you have Collington, who was more than just another soft-headed, liberal undergraduate. (more…)
She’s Passionate about Borderline Personality Disorder!
In the Contributor Notes of a recent issue of Philosophy Now magazine, one of the authors, Sailee Khurjekar, is described thusly:
She is passionate about intersectional feminism, and the representation of minorities in public life. She hopes to use her experiences as a female British Indian with Borderline Personality Disorder to advocate for diversity within education.
Ms. Khurjekar’s bio is somewhat grammatically ambiguous. (more…)
Greed: “intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth, power, or food.”
Arrogance: “an insulting way of thinking or behaving that comes from believing that you are better, smarter, or more important than other people.” (more…)
1. The Greatest Unread Philosopher in History
Chances are you may never even have heard of the German philosopher Johann Gottlieb Fichte (1762-1814). If you have heard of him, you probably have the vague idea that he was a follower of Kant who went off the reservation and tried to defend the bizarre position that all of reality is the creation of something called the “Absolute Ego.” This is how he is often treated in histories of philosophy. But this characterization of Fichte is completely wrong. (more…)
American liberals are torn over our national symbols. On one hand, they claim them as their own and say they represent everything they love–multiculturalism, equality, anti-fascism, and DEMOCRACY. On the other, they will say at times these symbols offend them and must be replaced. This conflict was encapsulated last week by New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay. (more…)
Metapolitics Matters:Lieutenant Colonel Archibald Roberts
& The Anatomy of a Revolution
I had occasion to visit Fort Collins, Colorado this summer. In doing so I was able to discover information on an important Rightist of the 1960s, Lieutenant Colonel Archibald Roberts. LTC Roberts was a longtime resident of the area and active on the local AM radio community. He is buried at Grandview Cemetery.
Archibald Edward Roberts (1915–2006) is almost unique for the men of his generation and social class. (more…)
Nineteen Eighty-Four Revisited, Part III:
What Orwell Can Still Teach Us
Among the many useful concepts bequeathed to us by Orwell, “doublethink” tops the list. It is a priceless tool for understanding how “normies” function within the repressive, PC societies of the West. The novel offers us two separate discussions of doublethink, which complement each other. The first occurs early in the story, and is the most famous passage dealing with the term:
Part 2 of 2 (Part 1 here)
2. A Will to Nothingness: The Essence of Leftist Metaphysics
We are now in a position to step back from these observations and draw some general conclusions about the metaphysics of Leftist ideology. I trust the reader understands, however, that I am identifying the metaphysics that underlies Leftist ideology. (more…)
