The Politics of Ridicule

The Progressive Left’s Argumentum Ad Absurdum

Progressive politics, or leftism, poses as the moral light at the end of the tunnel. But if you point out the light is coming from a train’s headlights, they’ll say “you just hate heaven”. If you run away from the train to save yourself, they’ll drag you back to hell, because “nothing can stop change”.

A man with a baseball bat runs onto a football field during a live game. If you express worry he may injure someone, “you’re just a...

The Hollywood Dilemma

Why American Notions of Diversity Fail Globally

With aging white demographics less interested in bringing their cash to the box office, how can Hollywood’s film industry survive in a globalized world? How might Hollywood compete with emerging film industries and moviegoer markets in China, India, Eastern Europe, the Arab world and Africa?

Apparently, Hollywood has decided to ‘diversify’ its American casts in hopes of appealing to ‘minority’ audiences worldwide. From Skyfall’s...

Gamification is the New Sleep Learning

Remember sleep learning? We were all going to learn to speak seven languages while asleep. But the system failed: students could repeat some of the content, but failed to grasp its meaning. Had sleep learning worked, education would have reduced human beings to programmable puppets. Wives could haved reprogrammed their husbands into better lovers and fathers. Pimps could have reprogrammed women into prostitutes.

But today’s craze—gamification—is no less useless. Take, for example, language...

Millennials’ Search for Meaning

A civilization’s main export product is its constituents’ behavior, especially abroad. The West, judging by the millennial generation’s monomaniac drive to party, scouring the world’s pristine island beaches and trashing them in raves of binge drinking and electronic music, suffers more than a PR problem, but an existential crisis.

While their grandfathers, and great-grandfathers, unflinchingly stormed the beaches of Normandy...

Who Interfered in Manning’s Gender?

Some Assumptions Are So Painful Society Works to Hide Them

When journalist for The Intercept Glenn Greenwald referred to Charles Manning as a ‘she’ on Twitter, I commented that Manning is still a ‘he’. It provoked Greenwald to respond by classifying yours truly as a sort of Untermensch undeserving of participating in public debate,

“It takes a very warped sickness to want to interfere in and dictate other people

Informedness Beats Intellect All of the Time

In Western, East Asian and many other societies, we tell our children they need an education, because that’s the way to get ahead life, however arbitrary “getting head” (of what?) may be. This cultural instruction has led to an over-appreciation of academic intellect, i.e. the kind of intellect arrived at through rote learning. We’ve mistakenly equated knowledge with intelligence, cleverness with competence and intellect with informedness.

Imagine two...

Did the American People Elect a Fascist?

If you repeat a lie often enough, people will come to believe it. At least, that’s what Third Reich Minister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels said. Thus, for almost a year, every day Western radio, newspaper and television repeated that Donald Trump was a fascist. They convinced nearly everyone, but the media hadn’t taken into account that their accusation in fact made Trump seem more appealing. Women voted Trump, because they believed he was a strongman who could protect them....

The Overlooked Reason Why Trump Won the Election

Building an Alliance

Build that wall

When Donald Trump won the 2016 US election, media pundits scrambled to find an explanation. In their usual hurry, journalists from left to right blamed Trump’s election on uneducated white voters, supposedly fueled by a rising American populism. 

Conveniently blindsided, the media...

Uniting Europeans

How Multiculturalism Became Nationalism's Greatest Gift

Technocrats founded the European ‘Union’ despite the fact that European peoples have never really been unified. Very few things tie Europeans together, apart from us inhabiting the same continent. 

Native Europeans speak hundreds of different languages and showcase many different cultures. Ethnically, native Europeans are perhaps more diverse than the Chinese. Even within Christianity, the many different factions would refuse to consider each other ...

Hyper-Diversity

America’s Educated Class is Leading the Destruction of White Christians

Until recently, I had never really understood the liberal/progressive narrative demanding the West to become more ‘diverse’. But when riots broke out in Los Angeles and New York in protest of Trump’s election, the missing insight presented itself. And it’s a deeply worrisome one.

Those rioting crowds of anti-Trump protesters namely consist of highly diverse university students. In their classrooms, American whites account for slightly under 25% of the...
