Clown World Politics: How Government, the Opposition, and the Media Cooperate

As the response of government towards Covid-19 does not make any sense at all, I have gotten more interested in the political theater. As a quick summary of the story thus far, we have a vaccination that causes serious side effects and does not even protect you against catching Covid. Regardless, you are supposed to… Continue reading Clown World Politics: How Government, the Opposition, and the Media Cooperate

“This Means the Vaxx is Working”: The Perspective of the Elites

It is puzzling that the myriad of side effects of the vaxx, including death, get relatively little attention in mainstream media. We are also told that “breakthrough infections”, which is a euphemism for vaccine failure, are likewise not a cause for concern. All of this, we are being told, only means that the vaxx is… Continue reading “This Means the Vaxx is Working”: The Perspective of the Elites

The Allure of Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives

In my last article I wrote about why politicians rather cynically fight climate change than solve real problems. This is not just a problem of politicians but of leadership, or the lack thereof, in general. In this article, I describe some of the nonsense I have witnessed in a supposedly highly objective, technical profession. I… Continue reading The Allure of Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives

Facts that are no longer opportune to the regime continually get removed from the official record so that Eurasia has either always or never been at war with Oceania, depending on what the current story is.

The starting point is the big push towards AI,… Continue reading Limitations of AI are Interfering with the Elite’s Master Plan

Little People: Linguistic and Sociological Reflections on the Slave Mentality of Vegetarians and Vegans

I find it quite fascinating how the use of language changes over time. In a previous article, I highlighted the euphemistic treadmill according to which the term “retard” is now offensive, and retards are nowadays called “special”. The problem is, of course, that the underlying reality is unpleasant. Relabelling anything does not change it, which… Continue reading Little People: Linguistic and Sociological Reflections on the Slave Mentality of Vegetarians and Vegans

The Psychological Importance of a Marginal Income Tax of 50% or More

The West is leading on many important metrics such as wokeness or marginal tax rate. Paying an income tax of less than ten percent would be a sign of the dark ages and indicate that you live in an authoritarian and brutally oppressive regime. In contrast, in the West there is wide buy-in when it… Continue reading The Psychological Importance of a Marginal Income Tax of 50% or More
