Nullified

One item that goes largely unremarked upon by most combatants in the West’s existential conflict, is how reliant the system remains on those it labors against. Of course the tax-wool sheared from legacy sheep keeps all other creatures warm in the winter. But beyond the obvious utility of subsidizing their own dispossession, the succulent middle-class…

Saving Diversity

As an inconsequential anecdote, what follows really isn’t post-grade material. Though hopefully Mr. Slim will overlook small indiscretions when naming his editorial board at the New York Times next year. I was chatting recently with a cherubic lady on the topic of pets, when she piqued my interest in mentioning her related hobby. She said…

Through Ground-Colored Glasses

Despite its perch on the deplorable fringe, I’ve come to (perhaps egotistically) view the alt-right as indispensable to any sustainability initiatives in the West. The mainstream right is so co-opted, corrupted, and craven there’s little other source of meaningful dissent than that which percolates up from the springs of Hate. And thus why it is…

All Values and No Victories Makes Conservatives a Dull Boy

I saw a Washington Post item the other day that placed Trump’s odds of winning the White House at essentially “zero.” I’m actually much more inclined toward evaluating probabilities than making stark predictions myself, though zero leaves little space for alternatives. That’s not particularly surprising for the Post, which has decayed under Jeff Bezos into…

The Crisis of Conservatism

I was reading a piece this morning entitled Crisis of the Conservative Intellectual by a Matthew Continetti at the Free Beacon. By appearances the author is primed to enter puberty at any moment, though his bio states he is already 35 years old. Which would make him an unaccompanied minor under British migration doctrine. Though…

The First 100 Days

Borrowing from the old Republican riff, Donald Trump has released his own contract with America. I’ve pasted it below with editorial annotations. DONALD J. TRUMP CONTRACT WITH THE AMERICAN VOTER What follows is my 100-day action plan to make America great again. It is a contract between myself and the American voter – and begins…

The Marigold Migration

Historians will likely struggle to find analogies for the Italian shuttle service now operating off the coast of North Africa. It would be unlikely enough for an invaded people to offer such meticulous care to their antagonists that they would safely tow them back to their point of origin. Though to actively ferry them to…

Make it 72 Degrees, Scum

Whatever the results of next month’s election, this presidential campaign has illuminated corners of our polity that have long preferred the gloom. I do not think living memory offers another example of so many rodents linking arms in the light. * Republicans rejecting their own constituents * The use of conservatism to harvest votes for…

A Trillion for Your Thoughts

Did you know the US federal debt has increased by more trillions than years Obama has flounced in office? Over nine trillion dollars more in eight years will be the results when Barry finally hits the lecture circuit. I imagine every one of his let me be clear orations will be a bargain in comparison.…

Finding the Dish’s Exit Door

It’s interesting how many men yearn for the right to speak freely–at the hate speech trial of their enemies. The fact illustrates how useful an agreement of terms would be for contemporary discourse. For instance, when I’m talking it’s free speech. And when you’re arguing, it’s Hate speech. This solipcentric model of morality might have…
