The Pendulum of American Extremes

The American Political sport is a unique beast. Something wholly original on the world stage. No, I’m not talking about “The American Experiment” in constitutional republics. That experiment has failed to produce lasting results, although it was a worthy try. No, what I mean is that unlike the rest of the western world, American politics grows more and more extreme at an increasing rate – a rate that should be alarming to most rational and peaceful people. continue reading

Why Anarchy?

In the few years since deciding the label “anarchist” most accurately represented my own political philosophy, I’ve learned of other, powerful, confirmatory and congruent philosophies as well, that have helped to grow my own anarchism further outside the political realm. In other words, I may have started as a political anarchist, but ultimately, my own brand of anarchy has stretched beyond solely politics. continue reading

The Civic Duty of an Anarchist

Ok, now I know what you’re thinking. “The civic duty? Do you even anarchy, bro?” No, I get it. We’re anarchists. We don’t vote. We don’t participate in elections. We think paying taxes is for schmucks, and actively look for ways to lessen how much we pay (if we pay at all *wink wink*), and generally, could not care less about the political process. It’s corrupt, fake, and full of deception, pay-offs, theft, armed robbery, and murder. A wise philosopher once said “Government is the price we pay for being uncivilized.” I get it. So how does an anarchist participate? Should an anarchist participate, even? Well, I think there are a number of ways that anarchists can engage the public, if we so choose (and we should). continue reading

2016: The Year Nerd Culture and Free Speech Died

When it comes to all things nerd, 2016 hasn’t been our best year. Between nerd culture icons like Leonard Nimoy, Gene Wilder, or Alan Rickman passing away, or music icons like George Michael, Prince, or David Bowie dying, or nerd-cultural-phenomena like Star Wars being transformed into SJW propaganda, and other nerd-staples being made into Feminist and SJW “philosophical” outlets (here’s looking at you, Marvel Comics, Star Wars generally, and Joss Whedon), nerds the world over have begun to ask “Is this the end?” continue reading

The Black and White Struggle for Freedom… Or Is It?

One thing I find all too common in humanity's fight against tyranny and struggle for freedom is our uncanny ability to completely dismiss as insignificant or unworthy of consideration "others'" struggle for freedom. Whether on religious grounds, cultural grounds, or racial, it is only "my" fight for liberty that is legitimate. Everyone "else's" contest is a game. They aren't "woke." They "think they're fighting. But they're really just helping out the oppression, without even knowing it." continue reading

The American Left’s Crushing Defeat By the Global Alt-Right

The disgraceful and shameful rhetoric coming from the anti-Trump left has been telling. Thankfully not many of my friends have participated in it, and that is appreciated. Keep it classy. But the vile, and hate, and violence I have seen geared towards not just pro-trump people, but white people, males – especially “straight white males” – has been staggering. I’m not surprised, but I am ashamed of their behavior. We had 8 years of Obama’s divisions of people. We had 8 years of media elites and pundits and their useful idiots telling people that if you didn’t think just like they do, that you are worthless. We’ve had 8 years of radical 3rd wave feminists and Social Justice Warriors telling us that if you didn’t given in to their demands, you were a racist, homophobic, xenophobic bigot who didn’t deserve to live. We’ve had 8 years of that. And it looks like we’ll have many more because the left just cannot lose with grace. It is beyond their scope of reality to do so. And for me to even call them out on it is “proof” of my so-called “privilege.” Well, so many people have had enough of it, and cleaned house. See where 8 years (and counting) of TRUE hateful, bigoted, racist, speech and actions got you? It got you the rise of the Alt-Right. It got brought you a Bernie Sanders loss. It cost you the White House, AND the Senate AND the House. You have nobody to blame but yourselves. LEARN from this. BE civil. BE better. Have some dignity. Quit spreading garbage lies from the MSM who have already proved their worthlessness to you in this election. For 2 years now, they’ve been peddling you this crap about Trump, about how he’d never win, about how Hillary was so much better than Sanders…and look what it got you. Don’t keep doing it. Drop the msm. Drop their narrative. It was designed to make you feel the feelings you’re feeling now, and those feelings are based on lies and illusions. You know who lost this election? Anarchists. You know who lost the last election? Anarchists. The one before that? Anarchists. Before that? Anarchists. You don’t see us rioting, pillaging (the irony!), or creating massive blockades on city streets. No, we go about our business. We do what we have to do to get by. And when we can, we create Think Tanks. We write books, blogs, and magazine articles. We create businesses, and create jobs. We say “eff you washington. ‘I won’t do what you tell me!'” And we live our lives. The left needs to learn that. The Alt-Right proved now twice how much power and pull they have (Brexit and Trump). What you leftists do not understand about the Alt-Right is, before they were in America, they were in Europe, rising. The Alt-Right has been rising in Europe for quite some time now. Every election in Germany, their people get stronger. It’s happening in France.... continue reading
