Born Again

I was raised properly and traditionally, in a rural, blue-collar, Midwestern setting. Although it was rocky at times, I was lucky enough that my parents stuck it out and are still married to this day. Because so many of our brothers and sisters weren’t blessed in this way, I feel an added responsibility, that I was given an advantage, so I must utilize it to the benefit of all (of our in-group that is). I grew up in the Catholic Church (unmolested for any who were wondering). I used to go to the Wednesday night CCD classes with all of…

A Child of the West

My father has always emphasized education and culture. I was a good reader early, so when I was in second grade, my Dad got me the full used set of Grosset and Dunlap’s “Companion Library,” containing dozens of classic books. The entire Tom Sawyer series was included, but also Aesop’s Fables, Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Swiss Family Robinson, Jungle Book, The Call of the Wild, Kidnapped, The Legends of King Arthur and His Knights, Merry Adventures of Robin Hood, Tanglewood Tales, Gulliver’s Travels and a couple of dozen more. Though it was more implicit than explicit, these books gave me an…

When Facts Become Hateful

Instead of talking about hate speech, I am going to open this column by talking about free speech and why it is so important. Western Civilization in these last few centuries has been built upon the idea that by challenging beliefs we previously held in light of new evidence that we could increase our knowledge and our quality of life. While one could certainly argue there have been times the cost of progress has outweighed the social benefits in some facets, it is inarguable that we live in a more materially successful and comfortable culture than at any point in…

Heritage Isn’t Hate

We are living in an era of unprecedented tyranny in America. The tyranny we are under is not necessarily one of para-military police guarding every street corner, but an invisible tyranny of censorship and political correctness. The charge of racism is the scarlet letter by which wrong-thinkers are blacklisted from employment, targeted for harassment, silenced on social media and financially ruined with lawfare. “Hate speech” is used as a political weapon against Whites, and only Whites, to deprive the descendants of those who founded this nation and its laws from their birthright and make them into cash cows to be…

Hiding in Plain Sight: How Oligarchy Uses Hate Speech to Conceal

“Hate speech” is a concept that works on the same twisted logic as Antifa’s justification for violence. That is, “hate speech” is constituted of words or concepts which, they claim, will result in violence against the innocent. Therefore, any actions taken against a person engaged in hate speech are justified because they are undertaken in defense of the innocent. Another element of this concept is lifeboat ethics. In a lifeboat situation, we look the other way, even for such crimes as cannibalism, understanding that in the fight to sustain life, practically anything is justified. This all comes down to past…

Herbert Marcuse: The Father of Repressive Tolerance

In his First Inaugural Address Thomas Jefferson said of dissenters, “let them stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left free to combat it.” Today dissenters and monuments alike are regularly toppled. Saying transgender women are not female, noticing racial discrepancies in IQ scores, supporting the First Amendment and the right to free speech – all sorts of wrongthink can get you “no-platformed” nowadays. And most of these attacks are inspired directly or indirectly by Herbert Marcuse’s 1965 essay, “Repressive Tolerance.” Those who believe “Cultural Marxism” is just an…

A Healthy Sense of Hate

To really understand how absurd the concept of “Hate Speech” is, we have to examine the concept of “Hate” itself. The term gets thrown around a lot these days, and is often used to shut down free expression and legitimate criticisms. In this highly subjective chaos, the true definition has been lost. Per Merriam Webster’s top definition, hate is “intense hostility and aversion usually deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury.” This seems like a fair and accurate definition. The key phrase here is “deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury.” Let’s put this in the context of…

Envy, Hatred, and Longing

“God is dead! God remains dead! And we have killed him! How can we console ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? Is the magnitude of this deed not too great for us? Do we not ourselves have to become gods merely to appear worthy of it? There was never a greater deed – and whoever is here after us will on account of this deed belong to a higher history than all history up to now!”, Friedrich Nietzsche wrote these words in 1881 in Germany after the Enlightenment, where the idea of a universe that was governed by physical laws…

Play Ball or Else

When I’m not busy serving as editor for Pendulum or writing books, I work on a project called the National Right which seeks to bring identity into a larger right-wing coalition to remake the Republican Party into something far more effective. Through the course of these efforts, I have the opportunity to talk to many Americans about their personal concerns, and it was these conversations which prompted our coverage of health care this week. There are many people who really hate some things the Left does here in America, but who vote for them anyway because they literally believe their…

Degrading Healthcare: How Egalitarian Impulses Destroy Excellence in Medical Practice

We live in an age of entitlements states. Most people, being the descendants of serfs of former ages, look toward government as they once did to the manor house: a source of employment, care/cures, and pension. After all, serfs worked the land and paid rents in exchange for a pension and periodic help from the lords, so it makes sense via genetic memory to extend that expectation to what replaced the aristocratic-feudal society. The Left began clamoring for socialized medicine in the 1930’s because their goal is egalitarianism, or using government to make us all “equal,” which really means wealth…
