Slim Pickings

It would be interesting to learn who is the alt-right troll that hides behind the guise of Mexican industrialist “Carlos Slim.” Only the least observant can’t detect the obvious jowl prosthetics used to conceal his true identity while lapping escargot at Davos. He’s plainly not the swarthy liberal plutocrat he pretends, and if I had…

It’s Never for Free

The worst thing about freedom is other people having it. Most people aren’t sufficiently reflective to understand who they actually have in mind when offering another treacly tribute to liberty. Because every man is easy to convince of his own virtue, most freedom fighters will assert a principled universalism in their advocacy. I want more…

A Matter of Principle

Whites cherish the belief they are acting on principle. That their choices are grounded in an unbiased moral doctrine. That the demands they would impose on others are regulated by what they would accept for themselves. Self-interest is seen as gauche to modern eyes, particularly when it flounces about nakedly. There are, of course, whites…

Pretension is Always in Style

Sir, what is your occupation? My occupation? This was a few years ago, and a retail clerk had sold me on the merits of signing up for one of those brand loyalty cards. The inducement being buy ten weed-eaters and get the eleventh free, or something like that. I thought a name would be sufficient…

Cato’s Cringe

I was initially disappointed to have been unable able to watch the attorney general confirmation hearings for Jeff Sessions today. I think of the senator from Alabama as a sort of noble anachronism: a white politician with reservations about betraying his constituents. And so with fondness due such a quaint figure, I had some romantic…

Automating the Narrative

A recent fixture of the business press has been forecast pieces on the increasing role of labor automation. Much of the focus has been on repetitive rather than cognitive occupations, such as cabbies, truck drivers, field hands, and rote assembly. Though advancing prospects for machine learning and voice recognition will also eventually place many white…

Chicago Adding Apostrophes

I wonder what Chicago’s African name will be? I don’t wonder very much, since the world is growing full of weedy patches growing up through the remains of civilization. But it might be worth placing a wager if any Vegas parlors have set a line. The convention of re-naming cities as they return to the…

The Alt Universe

This topology of the dissident right has apparently been circulating for a while, though today was the first I’d seen it. It’s architect was Reaction’s roving MC, Nick Steves who, while being an undeniably sharp guy, has himself conceded to some possible misplacements. Though I thought it was still well worth publishing for sake of…

A New Year’s Meme

Longtime reader Shaunantijihad asked in the previous comments about new memes for a new year. There’s one in particular I’d love to see gain traction. It occurs to me with every reading of Europe’s ‘migrant crisis.’ Why this crisis is Europe’s rather China’s, India’s, or South America’s is something few seem inclined to explore. Though…

Ring the Bell

If you want to call it peacetime, 2016 ends in a tenuous peace indeed. Francis Fukuyama’s End of History remains in a perpetual epilogue, and the only actual evidence of man’s universalism is found in his contempt for other men. Though if the appeal of living in one’s own country could be accurately measured, it…
