He Lives in Fame that Died in Virtue’s Cause

It’s fascinating what orbits people select for their few circuits around the sun. Everyone must occasionally marvel at the choices of others. Undoubtedly there are those who would wonder agape why a man with adequately compensated career and pleasant social outlets would incinerate his finite free time crafting blog shitposts. It’s a valid question. I…

Hate Hurts So Good

Imagine two opposing political factions. One of these toil tirelessly to consolidate the victories of its antagonist, as the other works just as diligently to delegitimize resistance to its agenda. Let these effects season for a couple of generations and then guess which side is winning. That isn’t a particularly novel insight, as the American…

The Right Side of the Future

Commenter DN Poolside posed a perceptive question recently: Is it possible for the Overton window to move left AND right at the same time? That’s plainly what’s occurring. Liberalism, and its SJW drone fleet, achieve more thorough destruction of traditional norms on a near daily basis. As just one example, transgender evolved from a term…

There’s Always a Section 207

You may have noted Obama’s recent pronouncement that the royal we are going to grant residence to another 110,000 refugees in 2017. Rather than repetitiously mocking this term every time it is deployed, let’s just settle on the following usage convention: a refugee is a non-white who wants to live in a different country. If…

Carolina Aglow

Every condition in flux seeks a state of equilibrium. The flakes in a snow globe eventually descend, no matter how enthusiastically jostled. Of course that’s not always an expeditious process. America has been waiting some 150+ years for emancipated blacks to reach a tolerably sustainable state, and the modern apex of that achievement is lit…

Dumpster Economics

I think Tolstoy might concede to expanding his point: All happy countries are alike, while each unhappy country is unhappy in its own way. Consider America and Venezuela, for instance. Both are unhappy in their own way…and in their own dumpsters. While ours have commenced exploding, theirs have become cafeterias. There are lessons in both…

Sunday Supremacy

Sunday mornings aren’t just for penning Hate epistles. Like most of you, this is the time I spend preparing to stare intently for seven hours at 82″ of physical mutations pursuing an oblong ball in yoga pants. This obviously can’t be accomplished while still in possession of any residual dignity, and so I drown that…

Dances with Hajis

For readers still bathing in the crimson reverie of Eid al-Adha, a brief note to maintain your festive spirit. It was announced recently that British ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Simon Collis, has converted to Islam. Some bigots will blanch at this, though there’s certainly precedent for those with more rational dispositions. For example, the American…

Hard Truths

I came upon an edifying article yesterday in the Wall Street Journal. Hard Truths for Trump’s America Washington didn’t kill coal, but disaffected voters are being sold a story of victimhood. The author was a William Galston, whose CV is littered with pseudo-prestigious liberal sinecures. This background is helpful to know, since few besides leftist…

Consider Me Your Greatest Ally

A prudent man relies on friends the way a carpenter relies on his hat. That is to say, not entirely. Hats and friends can, of course, be quite nice and provide as much satisfaction as any other accoutrement. Though they are best understood as the drapery of our lives: furnishings not foundation. Those foundations are…
