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....

Deplorable Democracy

When I was in my first year of high-school, I learned a valuable lesson in democracy. I learned that each person has one vote, or “one man, one vote” as the call for universal suffrage goes. When I went to elect a student representative, upon showing my school ID and getting my ballot from the registration desk, I carefully selected my preferred candidate.

On my way to cast my vote into the ballot box, a senior student stopped...

Trump the Redeemer

Donald Trump is the Last Man Standing Between American Democracy and a Clinton Dictatorship

Why would those in power willingly surrender to democratic elections? Why would ruling elites sheepishly submit to the will of the people? The answer is: they don’t. For the sake of military and economic continuity — and for their own sake — elites simply cannot afford to let a people rule itself democratically.

In their elitist view, a democratic people’s uninformed choices might plunge the nation into overnight catastrophe. At the same time, a popular...

Rigging the 2016 US Election

How the Mainstream Media is Deploying Pre-Suasion Tricks to Make Americans Comply with a Clinton “Win”

If you haven’t read the latest book on Pre-suasion by professor Robert Cialdini, a persuasion expert, let me detail below how the mainstream media is actively deploying pre-suasion tricks in order to secure a Clinton “win”. Or rather, how they intend to make the American people comply with a rigged election. Dilbert creator Scott Adams, himself a persuasion expert,...

Hillary Who?

The Free World Demands a Visible Leader

In the early nineties, I used to play a CD-ROM game called Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? Today, one could re-release that game as a Pokémon Go clone, asking players to go looking for Hillary Clinton. They’ll never find her. She’s invisible.

At the time of writing, Hillary Clinton hasn’t held a press conference for over 270 days straight. An apparent part of her campaign...

Idealism or Corruption?

In line with President Vladimir Putin’s vision for the future, between 2009 and 2013, Russian investors acquired a Canadian mining company. That company, later known as Uranium One, traded in the material needed for nuclear weapons and power plants. It also controlled 20% of the total US uranium production.

It was Hillary Clinton, at the time serving under President Obama as Secretary of State, and now running to be the first...

Women's Emancipation: A Forebode?

When at sea, the naked eye cannot observe what great oceanic undercurrents move at great depths underneath. At surface level, we perceive a freedom to sail in any direction the winds take us, but the undercurrents we cannot see influence the direction of the wind itself.

Similarly, human society operates on many levels, of which the naked eye can only observe most trivial matters. Why has the West embraced the emancipation of women? At first glance, merely touching the surface of the matter, we...

On the Mechanics of War

War drives technological innovation, but aside from using technology to defeat a competitor fighting over the same resources, such preoccupation with technology primarily helps numb the senses. Technological innovation takes our minds off our feelings, both during wartime and peacetime, in a manner similar to how blithering idiots ramble on like freight trains in their attempt to suppress upwelling feelings they have no experience in processing, because they never make time to try. 

The less time...

The Trump Card

Will Americans Play to Win?

Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy offers Americans one unique asset. Unrestricted by lobbyists or PAC owners, the self-funded real-estate mogul can afford the political freedom he needs to restore the promise of the American Dream—self-determination for all.

America a Prophecy

The times, they are a-changing. As global economies are rapidly reaching limits to growth, with some Western...
