Cell Phone Addiction in Public nothing new

Going about our everyday lives, those who are more intellectually inclined or publicly sociable might be lamenting on the sad state of affairs today when everybody in public seems to be permanently fixed onto their cell phones like mindless zombies, and how there is no sense of community or daily interaction with people.

It’s time to crush any sense of nostalgia for those who think by turning back the clock to the black-and-white era will somehow have the people be sociable with their heads up awaiting the small talk with their fellow human beings with that pleasing transatlantic accent of that time period with that white-people pip to their step with the alternating criss-crossing arm walk instead of apathetic downwards glanced shuffle of awkward autistic hipster kids that is the signature of out era.

Abortion: Trump and Matthews

So the Pro-Life movement has been full of contradictions and going halfway in attempting to avoid the logical conclusion of their beliefs, trying to avoid it’s consequences. Although their position is that abortion is a form of murder; their actions and beliefs betray the fact that they really don’t take the idea of abortion seriously at all.

I’ll leave my position on it to another:

  1. Women are moral agents.

  2. Abortion is a kind of murder.

  3. Murder either committed or procured by a moral agent should be subject to some kind of punishment.

Pro-lifers profess to believe (2).

(3) is self-evident.

The recent Donald Trump abortion kerfuffle clearly showed that the pro-life movement does not believe that women should be subject to any kind of punishment for procuring an abortion.

Therefore, the pro-life movement rejects (1).

Now Trump has flip-flopped and … Read More

Mankind does not naturally desire Liberty

Whoever says that man is born for liberty is speaking nonsense.

-Joseph De Maistre

the illusion of sovereingty
liberty is one count per person to vote? that’s what all of humanity desires?

There is a common belief that conservatives (AKA right-liberals or classical liberals) hold that mankind has an inherent desire for Liberty, and by Liberty (capitalized Liberty since it has more importance to the modern person than God) they mean the ability for a person to choose their own life the way they want, whether for good or for bad, and that in order to secure these “inalienable human rights” (an idea which is only a recent enlightenment humanistic concept) we have a government that serves to protect the equal rights of others so that every individual can live the way that they want since it is up to the individual to define Read More

The Universality of Inequality

Instead of looking for explanations for the fact of inequality, anthropologists should look for the explanation for the notion of equality.

-Nicolas Gomez Davila

the mere mentioning of caste has egalitarians and moderns shocked to indignation

When a historian or anthropologist studies history or human culture they are constantly appalled by how there is a universal aspect of inequality that predominates all societies. Academicians are taught to teach nothing but “facts” and complete objectivity without even a hint of impartiality, yet by presupposing as a “normal” starting point an egalitarian society they have already begged in question implicitly in favor for their own cultural context. Of course they question everything that all humans have taken for granted in all societies such as sex roles, rankings, families, religion, and government yet are completely absent in turning the lens of introspection upon … Read More

A society of shopkeepers

With the disappearance of the upper class, there is nowhere to take refuge from the smugness of the middle class and the rudeness of the lower class.

shopkeepers is seen as a compliment to the english when it should be deemed insulting

Apologies for my temporary hiatus. No excuses, but it is in part due to the unholy admixture of labor and sloth. So I’ve been working at restaurants around the more upscale parts of town, and being in the service industry (which nearly all young people work in) I get to hear the conversations of the chattering classes, and all flavors of the bourgeois under the moon. I was told that it would be interesting working in the restaurant business since I get to interact with all sorts of people, especially the richer, more accomplished facets … Read More

Women in combat and cognitive dissonance

When one hears the word female, girl, or woman what is conjured up in their minds? A woman is associated with beauty, fragility, softness, compassion, and nurturing instincts. People are attracted to those who idealize the essence of their inherent sex. A woman who is feminine instills a sense of love and protective paternal duties in a man. It is a burden of love that the man has that has him desire to keep a woman held tightly to his chest and in his arms.

All societies have understood the obvious differences in the two sexes that does not lie in the merely physical (biological) realm, but beyond that where it transcends into the metaphysical. Any arguments that concerns the human … Read More

Peasants versus Modern Employees

So for a while now I have read from multiple authors and sources that have shown that the myth of the barbaric and downtrodden “dark ages” was largely false and that the idea of some totalitarian demigod king who oppressed the miserable peasants with cruelty and mass slavery was merely propaganda and lies from the moderns who wanted to denigrate their medieval past to make their new order appear utopian in comparison.

I found yet another source in the most unexpected of places; an entrepreneurial book from a millionaire businessman. The Business of the 21st Century by Robert Kiyosaki;

The Medieval peasant had more freedoms and less taxes than the modern citizen
The Medieval peasant had more freedoms and less taxes than the modern citizen

The the idea of an “employee” was only a recent phenomenon, and followed after the dehumanizing and oppressive industrial era which continue to this day in Western … Read More

A case in Nihilism: Interview with a Pornstar

*Warning Explicit Content Below, not safe for work or people who are easily perturbed*

So yesterday I reread Father Seraphim Rose’s unfinished Magnum Opus, Nihilism: The Root of the Revolution of the Modern Ageand it is perhaps one of the best polemical takedowns on Modernity and in all of its varied manifestations that he has put under the umbrella term NIHILISM. This a a much needed nourishment for those who in their acute discernment (really just common sense) or visceral gut-feeling that there is something terribly wrong in the air, yet they cannot fully grasp it in its entirety. These days, all we have are vague,  inarticulate, overly-sentimental elderly conservative spokesmen types (who are the Liberals Seraphim mentions in his book) who are incapable of encapsulating the societal decay that spawns about universal malaise, and who themselves … Read More

Women from the West vs Islam: The false dichotomy of Liberalism

the false dichotomy of western and eastern women
the false dichotomy, it is only recently that women of the west dressed in such a way

There is plenty of backlash against the Muslims among people of the mainstream conservative and alternate right alike. The Muslims are seen as a foreign, alien group that has a way of life that is the polar opposite of those of the West. The scathing criticisms and vitriol thrown against the Muslims is primarily emphasized by their treatment of women in contrast to those of the modern west.

So those of the West will say that Muslims are an abominable group that is incompatible with “Western civilization and values” because men are allowed to hit their wives, women have have their bodies covered up and their heads covered in a veil, as opposed to sexy western girls in booty shorts and cleavage which … Read More

Resumes and Job Applications

brown nosing and growing
typical job resume

Writing a resume is engaging in the act of farcical pretenses, and it is done on a mass scale. When people hear of the term catch-22, they think about resumes since in most jobs the prerequisite for hiring is that you have previous work experience, and if you do not have that then it is an impossibility for a person actually obtain that position.

So on the microcosmic individual/personal level that is where people are most familiar of catch-22, but on a macrocosmic scale it becomes even more dehumanizing.

Since everyone has to participate in the same circle-jerking workforce, they are all required to bullshit some resume for their employers to read. Everybody knows that resumes are full of exaggerations and outright lies in order to make the applicant appear qualified, but people continue to keep the … Read More
