Running Out of Masks!

Similar to the 2016 primaries, the Democratic Party establishment is currently pulling out all the stops — which means all the candidates not named Biden — in a desperate attempt to block Bernie Sanders from winning the party’s presidential nomination. This in spite of his popular support among that plurality of Democrat voters who are tired of their party’s slow boat to communism,...

Reflections on “The System”

“Property is theft” is the cleverest expression of greed and envy. It is greed masked as righteousness, and envy proffered as insight. Every enlightened person today — from every successful social science professor, acclaimed film director, and bestselling pop singer, to every socially adjusted teenager and right-thinking government office worker — says “the system” is set up to enrich the few at the...

Marxism’s Final Argument, Rebutted

The problem with espousing Marxist political philosophy, in any of its many modified iterations, is that every time Marxism is attempted in any kind of systematic way, it fails. It fails economically, and it fails morally. It devolves into corruption, scarcity, criminality, violence, and starvation. It fails so profoundly that the world’s enlightened academics are consistently reduced to shaking their heads, half-embarrassed, while...

Canada’s Crusty Uncle Obsoleted by Marxist Tribunal

Hockey commentator Don Cherry, a fixture on Canadian television since his career as an NHL coach ended in 1980, has yet again done what he has long gotten paid to do, namely rile people up by talking about sports and society like your Uncle Ed at Thanksgiving dinner, shooting his mouth off about anything and everything, in equal parts Crusty Folk Wisdom and...

The Ladies’ Club (Marxist Revolutionary Chapter)

This week’s inadvertent comedy routine from the Democratic Party’s unforced implosion features Nancy Pelosi calling out her party’s newest Marxist Moronettes — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib — identifying them as extreme leftists, and therefore legislatively ineffective and self-marginalizing. In response, the most shameless attention-seeker among the Marxist Moronettes, Ocasio-Cortez, has damned Pelosi and the rest of the older...

Here’s what a REAL “fundamental transformation” looks like, Part One

On Thursday, Korea’s Constitutional Court struck down the country’s long-standing abortion law and handed the responsibility of writing a new law to Moon Jae-in’s Marxist-leaning government. This was merely the latest in a remarkable series of radical changes to Korea’s political and economic norms undertaken since Moon assumed office in May 2017. The socialist juggernaut is running roughshod over every aspect of Korean...

Hidden Premises Revealed

“From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.” — Fair enough. I need freedom from coercion and from having all my practical efforts to improve my life and the lives of those around me undermined by hyper-regulation and confiscatory taxation. Do you have the ability to restrain yourself from coercively undermining my efforts? “Every child has the right to...

The End Times, or Out With a Whimper

The bigger they are, the harder they fall. At this moment, the United States of America, the biggest and most definitive political development of the modern era, is in the process of falling so hard, and so fast, that the axis-shifting dent its crash leaves in the Earth’s crust might provide clues as to how the dinosaurs became extinct. It is a shoo-in,...

Meet the New Marxist, Same as the Old Marxist

After a little tough talk (in her little girl voice), Democratic Party phenom Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez now says she will support Nancy Pelosi for House Speaker, as long as Pelosi “remains the most progressive candidate for Speaker.” This newly-elected paperweight from an “of-course-the-Dem-won” district is being given the public authority to play queen-maker by a media desperate for the next Obama, i.e., a leftist-cliché-spouting...
