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…

Don’t Like It, But Have To Deal With It

Don’t Like It, But Have To Deal With It

In the turbulent world of contemporary Western politics, one is increasingly becoming forced into dealing with issues one might desire to bypass or avoid entirely. I include myself in this category. When I think back to the political issues that deeply concerned me two short years ago, they are markedly different from what concerns me now. Even the wording of the last sentence is quite telling. I mentioned political issues, not cultural issues. I count myself among the increasing number…

Killing Free Speech by Empowering Darkness

Killing Free Speech by Empowering Darkness

The term “assassin’s veto” or alternatively “heckler’s veto” has been used to describe situations like the one we have in thr West today. People are allowed to disrupt and prevent free speech, simply by interrupting, protesting or otherwise hindering the expression of undesirable opinions. Additionally we have suppression of free expression by threats of deadly violence. It is disheartening to see how few people in the West are willing to stand on principle and defend free speech for all. Even…

What The Troll Penis and a Pedestrian Bridge Tells Us About the Downfall of Norway

What The Troll Penis and a Pedestrian Bridge Tells Us About the Downfall of Norway

Being “woke” about the true condition of the world isn’t conducive to living a life free from stress and worry. More and more frequently we hear stories in the news that only serve to confirm the downward spiral our society is headed down. This last week in my home country of Norway, two stories in particular illustrate this lamentable development. Out in the wilderness there was (and now is again) a rock formation that looks like an erect penis. It…

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,…

No Room for Escalation

No Room for Escalation

Calling your political opponents Hitler has become a cliché. Especially if you are on the left side of the political spectrum. There is a fundamental difference to using “extreme” terms versus labelling your opponents with more benign terms like “potato-lover”. Terms like “Nazi”, “Fascist”, “Hitler”, “Evil” etc create an emotional effect in the audience spectating on current events. Having disagreements and name calling your political adversaries is not inherently problematic. As a supporter of the sacred right and central column…
