Reclaiming Visual Glamour From The Left

Reclaiming Visual Glamour From The Left

What does “politics is downstream from culture” mean in practice? Earlier today I was browsing through music videos on YouTube and the gears and cogwheels in my brain started spinning. I don’t usually use YouTube for music videos so in general I’m quite unfamiliar with music videos as a medium. I just finished “The Power of Glamour” by Virginia Postrell a few days ago, so I was primed to be aware of the glamorous set pieces contained in the videos….

You Don’t Really Want To Win

You Don’t Really Want To Win

Time for some “real talk” and tough love. I want to make one thing perfectly clear from the beginning. I’m not sitting on a white horse upon a hill called “moral high ground”. Every criticism I’m going to lay at the feet of various movements in this piece can be attributed to myself as well. The following criticisms come from a place of love, I want them to have increasing success. Now, with that caveat out of the way, let’s…

Fighting Disempowerment

Fighting Disempowerment

Having just finished Bob Lewis’ “The Feminist Lie” it is easy to be left with a sense of profound powerlessness. The crimes of feminism are many and the negative impact on both men and women are widespread. How can one be inspired to stand up in opposition to feminism when it is so easy to drown in a pool of self-pity and disempowerment? First of all, some clarifications are in order. My “beef” with feminism it its inherent dishonesty. Everyone…

Changing With The Times

Changing With The Times

Looking at my bookshelves, I can see the contours of a sort of time capsule. The kinds of books I’ve read up through the years have changed somewhat. A decade ago I was really into atheism, but since then I haven’t bought or read anything about the subject. Then I was in an economics/libertarianism phase and read a lot of books on this subject. That gave way to a men’s rights/issues period, then various novels and so on. Continuing to…

Political Suicide Bombing

Political Suicide Bombing

Shortly after Trump’s inauguration I thought about making a bet with my boss at work. I thought about betting on whether or not Trump would be re-elected in 2020. My boss is vehemently anti-Trump and would naturally have chosen to bet against Trump. I was (am still? Trump please come to your senses on DACA) a Trump supporter and would have bet in favor of Trump being re-elected. Since that time, I’ve recalculated Trump’s odds for winning upon reading stories…

Thoughts on “The Fall of Western Man”

Thoughts on “The Fall of Western Man”

Having finished Mark Collett’s “The Fall of Western Man” I’m left with some thoughts on some of the topics he brought up. I don’t have much to add to his very comprehensive and excellent analysis of the roots of the problem plaguing Western civilization. His take on the issue is novel, in that he views it through a psychological lens. Collett talks repeatedly about the conflicts taking place between the id and superego. Coming from a libertarian background myself, I…
