Guilty by Association: The Burning of America

As protestors and rioters take to the streets to avenge the murder of George Floyd, we find "justice" being sought through the most vile and irrational of means. Whereas George Floyd's apparent death serves as another example of police brutality in the United States, the protestors and rioters have mutually directed their frustrations at their fellow man, where they've disrupted daily life, assaulted fellow citizens, and destroyed their property and businesses. Whereas the case of George Floyd originally sparked nationwide agreement about the negligence of law enforcement in America, the protests and the riots have once again succeeded in dividing the country; of course, a guilty government and its accessories always prefer it that way.

By all appearances, this is just another repeat of the Kavanaugh case with a twist; in this case, however, we have a criminal who's undoubtedly guilty of manslaughter, but whose crime has been embellished to represent …

Is "Diversity" Failing?

While Americans nationwide clamor together to condemn the murder of a black man at the hands of law enforcement — an agreeable protest, no doubt — we are presented with an array of claims from protestors eager to hammer home their points. Whether it be multi-millionaires claiming incidents of "racism every day" or an exasperated government official in San Francisco comparing her plight to that of her ancestors of "four hundred years ago," nobody can possibly question the passion of the protestors, but their claims nevertheless stand squarely at odds with the ideas and causes they've promulgated all along.  

Ironically, people in America have long been groomed to champion “diversity” as a strength, yet I wonder what it would take to change the minds of that segment of society. This is not to condemn “diversity” as a weakness, but rather to consider when its advocates might be willing to admit defeat or, at the very least, confess that their version of "diver…

The Memory of Memorial Day

This weekend, please pause to reflect on the reason we as Americans celebrate Memorial Day each final week of May. 

In paying tribute to the costly War Between the States, this day serves to honor the men and women who, just a century and a half ago, made the dearest of sacrifices in defense of liberty, sovereignty and states’ rights. 

Nearly 3 percent (800,000) of the US population perished in that bloody and treacherous war; to put that figure into perspective today, a 3-percent death rate in 2020 would leave 10 million Americans dead. 

Even before the end of this devastating war, in the aftermath of losing so many of their beloved sons, husbands and fathers in the defense of their home states, mothers, wives and daughters, mourning their losses, decorated the graves of their loved ones to honor their memory and their sacrifice to the Southern, and truly American, cause.

The War Between the States claimed so many American lives, more than in any other conflict in American history, that …

Calling Bullshit on the US Dollar

I recently experienced another moment reminiscent of The Big Short, which I thought I might document for purposes of comic relief and added insight into the psychology domestically governing the world’s reserve currency, one still — after nearly half a century —  “temporarily” irredeemable in that precious commodity which originally rendered it worth holding in the first place. Living in a world of articulate illiterates, we often find ourselves conned into false senses of security or even those of conventional wisdom. 

Whether it's a seemingly-successful salesman in a shiny new Mercedes-Benz, an impassioned activist with a megaphone and a boatload of buzzwords, or an intergenerational tradition that's escaped scrutiny, the narratives around us form quite a compelling tale; but if we bother to endeavor just beneath the surface, between the lines and into the details, we just might find what they've all been avoiding: the truth. 

In the case of the salesman, his shiny new Mer…

The Government Flu: Deadlier Than COVID-19

Worse than any virus is the contagion that controls what the people think and say. Feverishly searching for answers, they latch on to those ideas which appear sensible to them yet go unexamined by those lacking the tools and acumen to conduct such a test. 



The spread of mistruths, then, much like an uncontrollable pandemic, infects each person ill-equipped to defend himself against it. With the incessant flow of mistruths, the immunodeficient public unfailingly succumbs to them without any knowledge of what or how it happened.  

This is the contagion of Leftism, which feeds off of desperation, ignorance and, above all, hysteria. Social hysteria is merely the preferred tool of the day for prying into the homes and lives of the average voter. 

In reflecting upon the list of household names from just a year ago, one can gain a meaningful insight into the political interests at work over the past few months. An election year, the many household names of today have merely succeeded in making …

A Short Story of the Modern Man’s Comic Tragedy

Over the course of time, man began to believe the messages coming across the screen; incapable of distinguishing between fact and fiction, he found himself believing the most despicable of lies and the most incredible of claims.



Failing to notice his weakened condition, he trained himself to believe the screen over his own eyes, even his own experiences. 

Even in the face of the starkest of contradictions, his self-doubt kept him from believing what he had seen with his own eyes; he thus relied on the screen to vindicate, to instruct, and to affirm. 

In his estimation, nothing could yet be true unless it had first appeared on the screen. 

Worshipping it, he failed to realize the differences around him and that life had passed him by. 

For him, the screen was life and everything else was noise. 

The screen told him what to think, what clothes to wear, which car to drive; he gradually left every important decision to the wisdom of the screen, and it was always easier that way. 

He had become o…

How History is Written by the Victors

People seldom win wars; that is the privilege of government. For if the the people are victorious, they've had a revolution, and where they suffer defeat, they've had a rebellion; in most cases, the people relent, and thus they have an enduring despotism

Where any rebellion by the people is defeated, the chance at a people's revolution becomes a brutal and costly civil war. Ironically, no such conflict has ever truly existed; where any war is classified as civil, you can rest assured that it was civil only insofar as the despots prevailed and they were desperate to convince their future subjects that the annihilation of their ancestors was more civilized than brutal, that their lives were sacrificed for the betterment of civilization, and that they had rebelled against a most righteous and benevolent authority, which conveniently happens to be the one still in charge today.

Where some people celebrate the success of some war, they are but the pawns of an administration tha…
