The American Crisis: That My Child May Have Peace

Have you ever wondered how the United States amassed so much debt? It’s simple: as the world’s reserve currency, few ever questioned the solvency of its issuer, so creditors domestically and abroad have long ponied up the cash on the promise of future repayment in the form of goods rendered at some future date. 

While the United States government has had little issue with satisfying the paper obligations through the proverbial printing press, they haven’t figured out anything new in order to satisfy that latter obligation: the production of the actual goods needed to legitimately repay those debts. 

This repayment will ultimately take the form of taxes on men and women, boys and girls not yet even born, at some time in the not-so-distant future. 

Through the processes of government, which is always clever enough to reclassify the terms, these debts will essentially enslave the public into years of labor to afford the taxes to repay the debt accrued by the profligate and tyrannical govern…

Perspective of a "Minority" in San Francisco

The following letter was authored by a Paradocracy reader from San Francisco, California, who felt compelled to share her perspective as an immigrant, a minority and a female who's proud to be an American:

I am neither white nor black. I am a naturalized American citizen. I am a minority. I am a woman. I am not a fan of politics, and I tend to think that the little voice inside of me would be useless in the public square; but since everyone seems to have a degree in Political Science these past few weeks, and there are now so many strong supporters (bandwagoners) of all of these different social-media hashtags, I suppose I will let this little voice out of my chest. I am not looking to argue; I am just sharing my own personal feelings.

I am greatly disturbed by the craziness that is going on out there in our own community and across the country. Ever since I became a mother, I care more about life than ever. I pray that I will live until I’m 90. I want to make sure that I am presen…

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 …
