A Smoke Raised with the Fume of Sighs

People yearn for belonging. For acceptance, loyalty, and kinship in a place and with a people that is uniquely their own. The need is hard-coded into the human psyche and results in the intractable “racism” that Western man viewed with equanimity before his recent religious conversion. Though buried beneath the liturgy of liberalism atavistic instincts…

Never Look a Gay Mexican in the Mouth

For a few years in the bloom of youth a crew of us would periodically attend a local NFL home game. The point of which being much less to exhort the efforts of African mercenaries than to leer at cheerleaders and enjoy the camaraderie of drunken bullshitting. Though there was one game when even those…

Literal Obliviousness

In 1918 Russia, leftist Bolsheviks conducted a campaign of murder so vast and depraved that media and entertainment organs committed themselves to forever shielding the public from its horror. The Red Terror was a starburst of logical conclusion liberalism that has persistently evaded capture in American museum dedications and feature films. Though this omission was…

Radically Fundamental

Tabloid reporter Jake Tapper called it one the most radical inaugural speeches in American history. Whether it was so much to prompt him to make Aliyah as a result is not known. Though within context of the pablum of modern politics, the incoming president’s remarks yesterday were radical indeed. But just what it is that…

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…
