The Absurdity of Thanksgiving Politics

We at QNUW hope all of you had a delicious and festive Thanksgiving meal.  While perhaps not the most trad of holidays, what with its celebration of the Enlightenment overtaking the shores of the New World in its own flimsy manner of comradery in a time of struggle, it remains a staple of the American experience and, more importantly, an excuse to drink good booze and eat good food with the family.  You could almost look at it as a throwback to the feasts of saints once common in Catholic practice—it lacks that religious dimension, obviously, but in an age of modern secularism, the glorification and memorial of the Pilgrims at Plymouth play the part of a sort of American pre-Christmas celebration: it’s the beginnings of the American genesis, the prelude to what would become the Revolution.

Student Loan Crisis or, How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the Debt Slavery

The cumulative total of American student loans hit $1.5 trillion earlier this year, spread out across a little over forty-four million people.  According to Forbes, this makes loans for university count for the second highest form of consumer debt in the country, with only house mortgages beating it out.  It should come as something of a surprise to hear that the sum total of all the car loans in the country still can’t even hold a candle to the borrowed expenses of the now mockingly-labeled “higher education” in this country.

Are Video Games Art?

Spend enough time around internet forums and video games and you’ll encounter the same tired pseudo-intellectuals that pretend to philosophize about arts and entertainment.  There is always a trend, no matter the fandom, to take your hobby a little more seriously then it probably deserves.  There isn’t usually anything wrong with that, so long as you don’t go overboard and start calling it something it isn’t or investing unhealthy amounts of time into it.  Hobbies are, after all, hobbies.

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”

#Skyking

Last weekend, a lone twin-engine Bombardier Q400 got taxied out onto a runway of the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, and from the cab of the service tractor emerged a 29-year-old of average build and ambition.  Without arising suspicion, he climbed aboard the empty puddle-jumper and roared off down the runway, about an hour away from a very deliberate and intentionally meaningless death.

Don’t Stare. Don’t Blink.

Imagine having a company policy about how long you’re allowed to look at someone.  Just think about that.  Maybe you have a few guys here or there that like to stare when that coworker of yours comes in wearing a skirt that’s a size too small for her.  Or maybe you have those socially awkward men with have intense gazes who never break eye-contact when they’re speaking.  Or maybe you have employees that actually look at people when they start talking.  Well, I hope you enjoyed it while it lasted!  Welcome to #metoo!

The Incongruence of Jordan Peterson

Over the past few weeks, information on the acclaimed Jordan Peterson has come to light, and most of that information is pretty damning stuff.  He’s no darling of the right wing, his philosophical approach is more like that of a cult leader, and he seems to be in bed with some extremely questionable globalist characters and has been for some time.  As of this post, the jury is out as to the extent of his controlled opposition—whether he’s legitimately backed by the same globalists who, say, backed Hillary Clinton’s campaign, or if he’s just an unwitting professor whose strings are easily pulled into barking up all the wrong trees.  But the substance of what he’s saying in his books isn’t up for debate.  He put it all out there for the world to see and, hopefully, laugh at.
