Oh Person! A New Bible!

Just in time for the holiday season, that most politically incorrect of all popular books, the Bible, is getting yet another much-needed update, in order that it may reflect more accurately the progressive urge to eliminate all past ideas and ways of thinking. From the LA Times: An update to the New Revised Standard Version was released digitally this month and is to be in...

Thoughts Out of Season

The only thoughts that ultimately matter much are those which we may, following Nietzsche, call “thoughts out of season.” This is true in part because seasonal thoughts, by definition, do little to advance the discussion, and tend to merely amplify the ambient noise, but mainly because such thoughts, being reflections of one’s time and surroundings, are often difficult even to classify as thoughts...

Retelling Nineteen Eighty-Four From The Totalitarian Perspective

I see that the estate of George Orwell, apparently related to its namesake’s legacy roughly as Nietzsche’s sister Elizabeth was related to his, has given its official stamp of approval to a feminist retelling of Nineteen Eighty-Four. Though the new story will allegedly present Orwell’s dystopia from the perspective of Julia, Winston’s love interest in the original, the explicit emphasis on the “feminist”...

Joke of the Day (Manly Version)

The Washington Post, in perhaps the funniest framing of an election in the history of journalism, presents an analysis of the Trump-Biden presidential race as a clash of two visions of masculinity. I know, I know, and I apologize if you happened to read that sentence with your mouth full. First, in full (and admittedly fair) mockery mode, the Post, a global communist...

Reflections on Lives that Matter

These days, hordes of uncivilized, desperate-to-be-cool white people are accosting other white people in restaurants and cafés demanding that the latter raise their fists to verify their support for one of the most prominent communist slogans du jour, “Black Lives Matter.” Ask these hate-filled, inhuman thugs to define “black,” “life,” or “matter,” as those terms are employed in that slogan, and you will...

“Everyone Should Be Under Lockdown”

Dr. Anthony Fauci is the director of the U.S. National Institute of Infectious Diseases, which is to say he is both an accredited “expert” and a bureaucrat — two hazardous materials which, when found in combination, invariably become a lethal toxin. And Dr. Fauci, Donald Trump’s top adviser on all matters coronavirus — which is to say he is acting as the nation’s...

Roman Polanski again

Let’s have fun with this one. The so-called MeToo movement — mostly neo-Marxist agitprop in its motivations and intentions — has shattered the awkward and ill-fitting illusions of modern democratic totalitarianism, breaking the uncomfortable bonds of progressive fellow-feeling at last. Suddenly, beginning in earnest with the exposure of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, the left had turned on itself, as the activist female Marxist...

Weekend (wry) smile: America today

I just read that a University of Montana man, Jonathan Eastwood, who now identifies as a University of Montana woman, June Eastwood, has been named the university’s “female athlete of the week.” Because feminism and identity politics are essential to advancing the causes of equality and fairness for women. I saw a CBS News Online headline a couple of days ago announcing, in...

Female Marxism, Part IV: The Logic of Weakness

Spoken in the secret heart of the true feminist: “I don’t want to live like other women. Therefore… “Every woman must accept my way of living. “Every woman must approve of my way of living. “Every woman must prefer and praise my way of living. “Every woman who lives in the old way is evil. “Every woman must be taught to believe that...

Female Marxism, Part III: Great Moments in The Struggle

If, like me, you regard modern feminism as nothing but a neo-Marxist ruse aimed at undermining the family and diluting “traditional” masculinity in order the more easily to absorb the individual within the socialist collective, i.e., to facilitate totalitarianism, you will enjoy a short piece at Patterico’s site, “The Moment a Soon-to-Be-Released Book Crashes and Burns.”  In fact, “enjoy” is far too reserved...
