Achieving a “Social Consensus” for Tyranny

One of the great Kafkaesque elements of this moment in humanity’s collapse is the repeated sense, experienced only by the conscious minority, we happy few, that we are watching our fellow men behaving as people behave in nightmares — walking directly into obvious traps or off cliffs, seemingly without an iota of doubt or concern. We watch those around us, and around the...

Coronavirus Context: A Personal View

Here are some numbers that might interest you — or might not. In fact, I really don’t care if they do or don’t. I report them for the record, for posterity, for my soul, or merely for the satisfaction of typing what I would rather not scream. Ten: The approximate number of humans on this planet — beyond my friendly band of Limbo...

Pandemics and Freedoms

Most Koreans are currently furious with that proportion of the Christian minority which, having been vilified and demonized by the Moon Jae-in government for months due to their desire to pray together in spite of COVID-19, has taken to holding public demonstrations in Seoul and elsewhere in protest of the government’s restrictions on church gatherings.  The government, in response to these conscientious objectors,...

On Those Who Are Not Getting Sick

The most disturbing and dangerous aspect of The Pandemic that Ate a Planet, according to our friends at Chicken Little News (the official information forum of foxywoxy.gov), is the fact that such a high proportion of its victims never get sick, as though it would somehow be better if a higher proportion of the infected required hospitalization. In this irrational End-Times climate of...

A Quick Survey from West to East

Much of the United States of America is under police state social controls these days, due to mass panic and massive infantile self-absorption over a virus pandemic that is roughly one-fifth illness and four-fifths progressive authoritarian propaganda. Meanwhile, all of the U.S., along with substantial portions of the rest of the “developed world,” is on social justice lockdown, systematically and ruthlessly dismantling history...

The Korean Case: Facts and Distortions

A regular reader directs me to an article at American Thinker, my old haunt (before it actually became haunted), describing the coronavirus situation in Korea. Knowing that I live and work here, he wondered if I could provide any insight into whether the AT article was at all accurate. It took some deep breaths for me to make the foray over there on...

Root Causes of Mortality

So it turns out that almost every single Italian who has died “from” the coronavirus had an underlying preexisting health condition. In other words, this bad flu bug hit them when they were already weakened by something, causing complications for their already compromised health — just like the common flu does to thousands of people every year. Gee, who could have predicted that?...

Staying rational in spite of all the evidence in favor of doing so

Now that Trump has spoken publicly about the new coronavirus outbreak, the American blogosphere will be dominated for days with vigorous arguments (i.e., rabid posturing) for or against one’s favorite political representative, as though this issue had any proper connection to politics. Of course, in this age, everything is connected to politics. Not to political philosophy, political community, or political history, mind you...

The Tribunal Eats One More of Its Own

What do you do with an old dog who can’t be taught new tricks? If you are the progressive leftist tribunal, and he’s your old dog, then you eat him as a warning to other old dogs. Such is the fate of horribly unfunny but absurdly successful milquetoast comedian Jay Leno, the man who inherited Johnny Carson’s coveted role as host of The...

South Korean defense in the hands of North Korean sympathizers

Yesterday came the news that Donald Trump and Moon Jae-in had cancelled joint military drills yet again, in an attempt to revive “peace talks” with Kim Jong Un. In other words, they were continuing the overt appeasement policy that has proven an abject failure every time it has ever been tried in dealing with any brutal tyranny, anywhere, ever. Moon plays this game...
