Trad Life Yearnings: Whips, Chains & Ballgags

Trad Life Yearnings: Whips, Chains & Ballgags

I have a theory, it might be a “little” bit far out, but I hope you will consider its merits nonetheless. It seems to me that at least part of the increasing popularity of BDSM can be explained by a deep-seated yearning for traditional relationships. Now, I know that on its face this sounds far-fetched. I will go into details below, as well as fleshing out counter-arguments. First of all, why would I think that there could exist a link…

Convincing Identitarian Arguments

Convincing Identitarian Arguments

Red Ice’s Lana yesterday published a video titled “Why I Don’t Want to Become a Minority”. I think she made a strong case for identitarianism. I’m currently in the middle of a personal struggle juggling my beliefs and looking at different arguments. In the last year I’ve changed my position on religion. Going from “militant” atheist, to seeing the value that religion can provide. Or more succinctly, the damage the vacuum formed in the absence of Christianity can inflict by…

The Big Post on Identitarianism, Strategic and Tactical Political Opinions and Beyond Ethno-Nationalism

The Big Post on Identitarianism, Strategic and Tactical Political Opinions and Beyond Ethno-Nationalism

I’ve recently taken an interest in identitarianism. I found this concept through listening to interviews with members of the Alt-Right on various podcasts and shows. Since I’ve begun exploring their ideas and concepts I’ve come to realize that while they have many valuable things to say that deserve further exploration I’m struggling to reconcile my interest in this with my libertarianism. A not inconsequential portion of the Alt-Right are collectivists and they advocate for identity politics. At first this sent…

The Great Moral Dis-equivalency

The Great Moral Dis-equivalency

There exists a great divide between our collective self-image and our actions. We like to look upon ourselves as a rational society following clearly defined moral rules. We hold up equality before the law as a beacon to look up to. Why then, don’t we follow these sentiments up in practice? Moral double standards are frustratingly common in the political discussion space. A stricter adherence to the rules is demanded of people on what can be described as the right,…

Cultural and Political Identity (Part 2)

Cultural and Political Identity (Part 2)

(This post had been rendered somewhat obsolete by a new post found here)   In yesterday’s post I finished with a brief summary on my stance on Norwegian nationalism. Culturally I feel alienated from mainstream Norwegian culture. I feel no connection to what are considered mainstream authors, tv-shows or political pundits. In fact if I could choose, I would probably self-identify as an American. I first took an interest in America as a political and historical entity during Ron Paul’s…

Cultural and Political Identity (Part 1)

Cultural and Political Identity (Part 1)

(This post had been rendered somewhat obsolete by a new post found here)   I believe that your cultural and political identity might not be the same, or even compatible with each other for that matter. What do I mean by identity used in this context? Your self-image as based on what political or cultural belief system you possess. Others might use different definitions. You might for instance self-identify as a conservative, a liberal, a centrist, a statist or as…
