The Best Never Have a Solution

Some problems just keep getting worse, no matter how much we exacerbate them. That’s largely become the accepted problem paradigm in the late liberal West. X creates Y social pathologies, which leads to more X in an effort to alleviate Y. It’s an indulgent ignorance that our forebears didn’t have the luxury to indulge. Unfortunately,…

Cooking in Our Own Lead Pot

Success, at its most fundamental, is survival and reproduction. And the fundamental key to success is learning. By learning I obviously don’t mean the process that occurs in Western educational facilities, which are devoted to ensuring their students’ most fundamental failure. Instead, learning means gaining an accurate environmental awareness and using this comprehension to mitigate…

Innocence and Obligation

As of this writing, the DACA legislation appears to be in an awkward purgatory between being a done deal and the embarrassment of having to admit as much. Which leaves some sliver of time to comment before it has all congealed. One of the facts that often seems to elude Donald Trump is that only…

The rest of us white heterosexuals were born too soon to understand our Hollywood/media assigned role as social anathema, and so blithely thought of ourselves as simply regular…

As an aside, I would advise readers against waging their own campaign of illegal activity with expectations that Congress will absolve your acts by virtue of their persistance. Predictably republicans were…

The Dream

Small businessmen work to grow their business. Big businessmen work to grow moats around their business. And oligarchs work to grow their thrones. Unfortunately such distinctions nimbly evade the notice of most conservatives, who are perfectly happy muttering “free markets” at Mark Zuckerberg’s feet. The fact that the CEO-class views them with more disdain than…
