The Devil Worshipers Among Us

The longevity of our neoliberal order has effectively found its end.  Faith in liberal democracy, the supplanting of the True Faith with secularism, and the economic sustainability of international free trade capitalism remain vestigial only to a small portion of the urban classes and the coastal elites.  For the rest of the country—and in many cases, even the rest of the world—the naïve belief in a New World Order, free of borders and politics, with all basic needs met and a life of leisure guaranteed for all, has been completely dispelled.  Worse, many more are waking up to the realization that the New World Order was never intended to be one that they would be invited to live in.  To have lost hope in a dream is one thing, but to realize that the dream sold to you was a lie from its inception—this is the foundation, for many, of anti-Globalist sentiment.

Godless Traditionalism is a Non-Starter

Atheism, while not necessarily a purely modern phenomenon, remains a staple of the Modern aesthetic.  All forms of religious belief are more or less treated with equal amounts of disdain under the neoliberal regime, though the exoticism of alien customs and rites tends to attract a fair share of delusional new-agers and members of the elite who are simply too intelligent to believe in anything.  Religious worship native to the historical roots of the West, particularly Catholicism, draws particular ire from the atheist crowd, though any form of Christianity is fair game for ridicule.

Censorship, Freedom, and Liberal Retardation

Free speech is back on the menu, apparently, this time with our favorite Texan, Alex Jones, thrust into the role of protagonist.  Again.

This time it was YouTube, Apple, and Spotify, at first.  Twitter’s founder came under attack by lefties because he hadn’t banned Jones yet, and he even had to issue short statement on his platform defending his decision to keep someone who had not violated the Code of Conduct from being ousted.  Until he gave Jones the boot, too.  And then InfoWars went down for a day or so.  Continue reading “Censorship, Freedom, and Liberal Retardation”

How to Hijack Conservatism 101

At one time, the term “neocon” referred to a specific group of presumably-reformed Trotskyites who had migrated away from the anti-Stalinist left.  They had found dissatisfaction with the way the conflict in Vietnam was being handled in the 1960s, and using the Cold War as an impetus, sought to limit the expansion of the Soviet regime through extremely active foreign involvement.  This involvement could have taken the form of minor espionage operations, but don’t be fooled: the neocons of the time were no strangers to advocating for the intervention of foreign affairs with the full might of the United States military.

Left or Right – The Utopian Nightmare

In contemporary political discourse, the terms left and right are thrown around so often that they’ve nearly degraded to the point of being insubstantial memes.  “Right-Wing Extremists” has been a term swung like a baseball bat by the media and by academics since the New Left rose to prominence in the sixties, and it was an amusing enough rhetorical cudgel given the fact that almost none of the terrorist acts committed by Americans during those chaotic decades were even remotely ‘right-wing’ no matter how you defined it.  “The Left,” on the other hand, has become a lovable boogieman used by alt-media commentators since the internet became a usable media platform, but it’s devolved to resembling a word that simply means whatever I don’t like.

The Riddle of Steel: New York Times’ Edition!

Bret Stephens posted an amusing Op-Ed in the New York Times yesterday entitled “Repeal the Second Amendment”.  Bret Stephens, for those who aren’t aware, self-identifies as a conservative, and as is somewhat typical of the NYT op-ed crew who lean Right, he’s a card-carrying Republican who stands firmly on his principles to appeal to the NYT’s Left-liberal Democratic platform in this dangerous, Trump-tocratic, post-Obamanite era.  He is, in other words, one of the typical New York elite: clueless, educated, disconnected, and snobbish.

The American Republic is Unrecognizable

This is getting to be a commonly heard phrase.  “The republic cannot stand with behavior like this in its highest offices,” the conservative commentators barked under the Clinton dadministration.  “The republic is doomed with all these warmongers and invasions,” came the outcry from liberal elite after 9-11.  “The republic will be bankrupt in a few short years,” the lounge-chair conservative economists cried as Obamacare passed.  And now, from the Left, as we’ve come to expect: “the republic is a fascist state run by a giant orange!”  At least they’ve found a taste for subtlety.
