Hey, wha’ happened to America?

When future Earthlings open the time capsule on this age, they will quickly realize they are examining the skeleton of a civilization that was in suicidal decline. But of all the absurdly self-destructive findings those prospective archaeologists have in store for them, surely none could be as incomprehensible as the discovery that the man seen in this documentary footage from 2003 would eventually...

The Emperor’s New Euphemism: “Coronavirus-Related”

Yesterday, I saw a big red breaking news headline announcing millions of new “COVID-19 related unemployment claims” in the US. Such phrasing has become part of the vernacular during this fabricated global crisis. You have seen it often, so ubiquitously that you may have become slightly numb to it, as I have, and as we are all meant by our masters to do....

The Coronavirus Lexicon: A Dictionary of Mass Manipulation

Advisory: A command from the rulers, based on the recommendations of their experts. (See “recommendation.”) Co-morbid: A non-coronavirus-related illness that a patient already has, and that was likely to cause the patient’s death independently of that patient’s contracting the coronavirus. COVID-19 death: a death, usually (though not necessarily) one involving a person who was found to have contracted the new coronavirus (with or...

Coronae, Divine and Human

There is good news in everything, for all suffering will be redeemed. Among the good news in our collective death dance into tyranny, for instance, is the happy truth, revealed by stark contrast (like the sun’s corona, which appears only during a total eclipse), that our greatest follies, and the great fools who lead them, are mere ephemeral events in the cosmic cycle.

The Grateful Slave

A man claims ownership over you. He declares his authority to restrict your movement completely, and to limit your social interactions indefinitely as he sees fit. He browbeats you with belittling criticism and public shaming for your every breach of authority. He chains you to your post, sending his guards to discipline you severely if you should attempt to escape. All the while,...

“Protesting is a non-essential activity”

The police department in Raleigh, North Carolina, United Shutdowns of America, has arrested citizens who gathered to protest against the state’s overt denial of constitutional rights. Citing the governor’s official stay-at-home orders — precisely the policy that the protesters were challenging — the police department defended its thuggery by declaring that “protesting is a non-essential activity.” Let’s parse that clause, shall we?  The...

So, we’ll go no more a roving

What the ancient king of Jerusalem would have said, were he an enlightened progressive full of “caring” for the masses, rather than a mere man of wisdom: I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet...

Body and Soul (Not Yours Anymore)

Government education = the state has a controlling interest in every citizen’s mental, emotional, and social development, completely overriding the principle of self-determination (i.e., the rights to liberty and the pursuit of happiness). Government healthcare = the state has a controlling interest in every citizen’s physical wellbeing, and matters of life and death, completely overriding the principle of self-ownership (i.e., the rights to...

Trump’s Dangerous Habit of Attacking Non-Compliant Americans

Some motorcyclists, angry, or pretending to be angry, about Harley Davidson’s plan to move some of its production overseas, are threatening to boycott the company in some sort of “America First” protest. The company claims part of the reason for their decision is the fallout from Trump’s tariffs on steel. Naturally, this has caused the Thin-Skinned-Bully-Hiding-Behind-His-Friends-In-Chief to come out tweeting. Many @harleydavidson owners...

Hillary and the Fundamental Legal Premise of Tyranny

We now know that the FBI’s dereliction of duty regarding Hillary Clinton’s e-mail malfeasance is complete. Not only did Director James Comey have the gall to explain her guilt in the very statement in which he announced that he (against the better judgment of some agents) would not recommend charges against her, but the FBI actually agreed to destroy laptops containing relevant evidence,...
