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

Cognitive Decline Among the Elite: Colonialism vs. Modern Empire Building

For any reasonably intelligent and curious person, it is impossible to ever be bored nowadays. Anything you would want to read, watch, listen to, or study is a few clicks away. Before the widespread adoption of the Internet, you needed to go to a library and if you didn’t live in or near a major… Continue reading Cognitive Decline Among the Elite: Colonialism vs. Modern Empire Building

Democracy and Diversity Signal the End of U.S. Soft Power

I have argued before that Covid-19 marks the beginning of Chinese hegemony. This refers to hard power, i.e. a country’s position on the international stage based on, primarily, military strength and the economy that backs it. In contrast, soft power relates to the cultural stranglehold a country has on others. In that regard, the United… Continue reading Democracy and Diversity Signal the End of U.S. Soft Power

One Black Man Down, and Covid-19 is No Longer an Issue

We live in truly interesting times. I love watching how the West is literally destroying itself. This year, more progress happened than I would have considered possible in ten years. Of course, my satisfaction is not necessarily due to watching our countries burn to the ground. Instead, I’m happy to see the mainstream narrative collapsing.… Continue reading One Black Man Down, and Covid-19 is No Longer an Issue

Poor Use of Language as an Indicator of Widespread Intellectual Decline

One of the most trite statements to be found in the mainstream is that there is no widespread decline in anything because even the Ancient Greeks complained about their youth. This argument is incredibly dishonest because it is a false equivalence. There may have been a few shitheads around during the times of Plato and… Continue reading Poor Use of Language as an Indicator of Widespread Intellectual Decline

Remarks on Arthur Bryant’s Unfinished Victory (1940)

I recently read Arthur Bryant’s book Unfinished Victory. It was released in 1940 and attempts to explain why Europe, and in particular Weimar Germany, developed the way they did after the Great War. This book is a quick and enjoyable read. In particular, it points out aspects that are completely ignored by the mainstream narrative… Continue reading Remarks on Arthur Bryant’s Unfinished Victory (1940)

Covid-19 Marks the Indisputable Beginning of Chinese Hegemony

The strength of the Chinese economy is commonly underreported in mainstream media. Instead of comparisons based on the monetary exchange rate, one needs to measure purchase power parity (PPP), and on that metric the Chinese economy is already the largest in the world. The next objection is that China has 1.4 billion people so we… Continue reading Covid-19 Marks the Indisputable Beginning of Chinese Hegemony

Manufacturing the Success of Corona-Chan: The Economics of Clickbait and Panic-mongering of the Mainstream Media

I’m not done with covering the Covid-19 mainstream media bullshit campaign. As I previously argued, it’s a giant hoax. Covid-19 is a PsyOps operation that has been fueled by political correctness. There is another aspect of it that keeps it in the media: clickbait journalism. If you have grown up in a time before the… Continue reading Manufacturing the Success of Corona-Chan: The Economics of Clickbait and Panic-mongering of the Mainstream Media
