A safe space for dangerous ideas and difficult conversations.
Sexual revolution, as Marcuse noted, always precedes political revolution, because sexuality is the fastest, surest way to derange people. As the basic instinct of life itself, its power is formidable, and its deracination underwrites social collapse. Disrupt it, and it has a catastrophic waterfall effect on almost everything else downstream.
If lesbian feminist Marxists organising Maoist riots and embezzling millions of dollars from white liberal women into property wasn't weird enough for you already, it turns out the whole thing was Occult religious rite. According to public conversations, BLM's founders are priestesses of a nutty West African religion named Ifa.
There is a historical term for "cancel culture" and the angry desecration of tradition by a subset of radicals with familiar beliefs: Maoism. Every abusive communist uprising has been suffixed with the rallying call of "justice" for a century. This time it's emerged from sociology anLd based around social issues,
The coordinated attacks on Joe Rogan have ended up providing a fascinating look into how they are organised. Through a layered maze of obscure, opaque front organisations, political operatives launder curated material designed to spread calumny which will colour the public's opinion of someone and ensure it cannot be traced
In January 2022, Twitter removed a damning thread by a Silicon Valley insider which received such enormous blowback the shockwave lasted for days. Pseudonymous user Hazard Harrington, who claims to work within FAANG, narrated his view on the industry situation. It's a partisan account, but it's one we all recognise
Does a government have any kind of authority to use psychological theory or military resources against its own citizens? Is it lawful to privatise a "social purpose" company of civil servants which can evade accountability to the public or its elected representatives? Since when did Western governments decide Soviet-style experimentation
We all know it when we see it. Audiences are experts in sensing – and ignoring - the intentions of writers and filmmakers when they attempt to surreptitiously program their perception of reality. Stalin became fascinated with it and made the industrial capture of the art form a top political priority.
In 1798, Reverend Thomas Robert Malthus wrote An Essay on the Principle of Population, in which he theorised the notion of a catastrophe occurring due to population growth exponentially outpacing agricultural production. In the 60s and 70s, Neo-Malthusianism took off with books such as The Limits to Growth, and China's
From the Black Liberation Army to Womens' Liberation to the Gay Liberation Front to Black Lives Matter, all rights movements have co-opted tactics linking back to the Soviet Union to achieve their goals: manipulating language, demanding "justice" for injury, pathologising detractors, infiltrating institutions, suppressing dissent, indoctrinating children, and worse. All
"Do today's global protests have anything in common?", asks the BBC in a November 2019 article. The answers they suggest are inequality, corruption, political freedom, and, in the last image, climate change. They seem to "miss" one wildly obvious observation: young women exhibiting deranged religious cult behaviour. Mental health can
Outlawing Critical Race Theory and other "divisive concepts" in the education system is a welcome step, but it doesn't address the much bigger problem underneath. "Divisive" doesn't necessarily mean "bad", intellectually-speaking: Galileo and Darwin were divisive; debates divide at the end to discover the result. For sixty years, academics have
Liberationism, n: A gnostic pagan Millenarian religion centred on the worship of the self, and its place in a hypothetical transhuman utopia achieved through collective abandonment of social conventions. The 60s and 80s were an orgy of self-congratulatory "liberation" back to primitive existence in the pursuit of escapist mysticism. Humans
Art is not about activism; drama is not about deconstruction; stories are not sociology; plots are not about propaganda or "power dynamics"; arcs are not "analysis"; ideas are not ideology; teleology is not "theory"; juxtaposition is not about "justice"; characters are not low-resolution caricatures; nature is not about "narratives"; writing
