Where Is The Will To Survive?

Where Is The Will To Survive?

One would think that the will to survive would be so far ingrained in our DNA that even questioning its presence would be folly. After all those without the desire to and ability to survive and procreate have served as Darwinian dead ends throughout history. Thus we are the descendants of those most interested in and capable of procreating and ensuring the survival of their offspring. This process has continuously taken place unimpeded for thousands of years, until now. Apart…

The Failed Showcasing of Liberal Democracy

The Failed Showcasing of Liberal Democracy

What a study in contrasts Trump’s Asia trip is providing the world. I thought a bit about how especially China views the United States from the outside. What set this line of though in motion was the totally out of place question to Trump during a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe about gun control. Here we had Trump on stage with another world leader talking about the tense North Korea nuclear standoff, bilateral trade and relations…

Trump and The Doctrine of Strategic Niceness

Trump and The Doctrine of Strategic Niceness

Scavenging through YouTube for clips of Trump on his Asia-tour it is becoming increasingly clear that Trump is using “niceness” as a weapon. If I remember correctly it was Scott Adams on one of his Periscope streams that talked about how Trump wants to make it preferable to be his friends. His Twitter “attacks” can certainly be seen as a part of a pattern of behavior lending credibility to this theory. He pounces on media and political critics and lavished…

What We Can Learn About Unintended Political Consequences From #Tentaclegate

Who could have predicted that American “journalist” Kurt Eichenwald would be able to successfully enter the news cycle yesterday during the over-hyped Comey hearings? The media almost had drool dribbling down their faces as they watched their countdown clocks until the hearing was scheduled to begin. But Kurt had other plans. He managed to tweet out an anti-Trump picture which he apparently didn’t check too closely before uploading for all the world to see. The picture displayed his web browser…

Fourth Generation Warfare, Postwar Japan and the Future of the West

Fourth Generation Warfare, Postwar Japan and the Future of the West

Don’t judge a book by its cover. This famous adage has rarely been more accurate than in this instance. “4th Generation Warfare Handbook” is an essential book for understanding Western foreign policy disasters. Unfortunately, the cover, well… it isn’t that great. Let’s just leave it at that. If this book hadn’t been strongly recommended in a video by Mike Cernovich, I would have misses it (Thanks Mike!). Fourth Generation Warfare theory adds another dimension to my understanding of the War…

Sexless Men Are A Bigger Threat Than North Korean Nukes

Sexless Men Are A Bigger Threat Than North Korean Nukes

I’ve been fascinated with Japan for a long time now. I started enjoying their popular culture as a teenager including music and anime. As I grew older this interest expanded to include politics and what you could call sociology. I often found myself in front of a screen watching a documentary or two on the country. It has been apparent for some years now that Japan and other East Asian countries in particular have a problem. A demographic problem. Their…
