What #Covfefe Tells Us About The Current State of Political Discourse

What #Covfefe Tells Us About The Current State of Political Discourse

A few times in life you get opportunities to gain deep insight. The whole “covfefe” debacle is one such opportunity. The response to the “incident” has been remarkably partisan. Leftwingers have trotted out their tired old talking points with covfefe inserted. Just look at the Twitter-replies to the Trump tweet. Russia, small hands, impeachment and on and on. The right on the other hand has explored the humorous potential embedded in the tweet. Political neutrals have gone with coffee analogies….

If I was Putin…

If I was Putin…

…I would use the American mainstream press to undermine the US government. “But wait, wouldn’t Putin want to support the Trump administration in their efforts to improve US-Russia relations?” you might reply. That is true, Putin would surely prefer improved US-Russia relations including a lifting of sanctions to the sour relationship that they have currently. But politics is the art of the possible. For Trump to be able to implement his vision of US-Russia relations, he would need a lot…

Why the Truth Matters

Why the Truth Matters

I find myself having a lot of socially uncomfortable positions on a wide range of issues. Hiding my political viewpoints consumes a lot of effort and is emotionally draining. As I’m an introvert with limited social skills, this protects the relationships that I have. The merits of this approach can be debated. I have an enormous amount of respect for the people with enough courage to be open about political viewpoints that are frowned upon. Their effort is key in…

Have We Learned Nothing?

Have We Learned Nothing?

Yesterday, a Norwegian group hosted identitarian Martin Sellner at an event. The event took place at a bookstore that allows a wide range of groups to host events. This event attracted a large protest outside the bookstore, threats of butyric acid attack and vandalism of the bookstore itself. To me this signifies that the violence we have recently seen taking place in the US is coming to Norway. Antifa, SJWs and other leftists have repeatedly crossed the line from verbal…

The Destructiveness of Smallness

The Destructiveness of Smallness

A lot of people have “smallness” at the core of their mindset. They aren’t interested in the grand scale big picture view of the world, but rather find solace in celebrity gossip, porn, weed culture, video games and aimless crawling through their friends’ pictures on social media. People that are interested in and concerned about the political and cultural future are somewhat rare. Another closely linked problem is that people on the edges of mainstream overton acceptability are captured. Artists…

Libertarians and Identitarians Are Not Enemies

Libertarians and Identitarians Are Not Enemies

History books will look back at the times we are currently living in as the early parts of the Third World War. Ironically, Germany is yet again one of the main villains of the story. Not with soldiers in feldgrau uniforms marching into France, but with a weaponized demographic change altering the future of Europe. Just as the First World War launched the United States of America onto the world stage as a major power and the Second marked the…

The Lifeboat Standard

The Lifeboat Standard

What is racism? Could we as a society agree upon a definition of the term? If you ask a SJW what their definition is, you could expect them to answer along the lines of “everything, everything related to white people, things that trigger me or things I feel are racist are racist”. To me the essence of racism is the “rac” part of the word. We have other words like sexism, ableism and so on to deal with other issues….
