Margaret Mead’s Samoan Skullduggery

Let’s discuss a rich and exotic culture, the beautiful islands of the South Seas. It is long past time to go deeply in-depth into the theories of one Margaret Mead–and of course, we’ll discuss how they were wrong, and why people just keep on believing in them anyway. We will also discuss how Mead’s true believers make our lives just a little bit more unpleasant. Flashing back to 1925, World War 1 has ended; Germany has lost its territory in Samoa; and Eastern Samoa still remains under American control (to this very day, it is known as American Samoa). Various Western… Keep Reading

Onward Transgender Soldiers!

As you’ve probably noticed, over the last week or so, there has been a furious debate in American politics and culture over President Trump’s decision to ban transgender soldiers from serving in the United States military. The left, which at one vague point in the past professed to be anti-war, was of course in favor of transgenders serving. “How dare President Trump deny these people the right to fight overseas?!” they asked, still having a residual love of war that they had engendered during the Obama administration. Besides, having transgender soldiers would make soldiering hip, and that’s all that really… Keep Reading

Why Democrats Are More Unified Than The GOP

Thanks to at least nine opposing Republican senators, Congress left for its July 4 break without passing a replacement bill for Obamacare. The opposition from these Republicans was two-fold: Four conservatives thought the GOP bill on the table went too far in retaining government control over the medical insurance market, while five centrist members complained it doesn’t go far enough in providing federal funding for Medicaid in their states, and would leave 22 million Americans overall without medical insurance. The free-marketers in the party have countered the centrist Republicans by indicating that many of the 22 million who will not… Keep Reading

Why Socialism Works?

Conservatives routinely attack millennial leftists for getting their political knowledge from twitter or the Daily Show rather than actually reading a book. This perception is validated with the “reviews” of Harrison Lievesley’s book “Why Socialism Works,” posted on Amazon. Obvious lefties have praised the work in gushing terms. One called it a “gripping account of this complex ideology” and awarded it “5 stars.” Another reader praised the research involved: “A perfect introduction to the crux of the matter without any messing around. In depth research backs up the argument presented. Top notch.” Another reviewer by the name of Conor Burn… Keep Reading

Neil Gorsuch Is a Giant For The Conservative Cause

Mark Joseph Stern is coming apart at the seams and he wants you to imitate his thumb-sucking fetal posture. In his article, Neil Gorsuch is everything liberals feared—and more, Stern recites a litany of Justice Gorsuch’s most heinous transgressions. He’s supposedly “pro-gun, pro–travel ban, anti-gay, anti–church/state separation. He is certainly more conservative than Justice Samuel Alito and possibly to the right of Justice Clarence Thomas.” Stern saves the best/worst for last when he says Gorsuch “will likely serve on the court for at least three more decades.” There’s a lot there for the Left to fear and for the Right… Keep Reading

Eastern European Jews And The Case Of The Marginalized Elite

The story of Eastern European Jews who immigrated to America in the beginning of the twentieth century is a story of “self-marginalization.” The more dramatically Eastern European Jews progress socio-economically, the more strenuously they identify with “marginalized groups” and seek to undermine the white Christian majority population. And though he takes care to guard against charges of being Politically Incorrect, David R. Verbeeten’s The Politics of Non-Assimilation: Three Generations of Eastern European Jews in the United States in the Twentieth Century is a goldmine of sociological evidence revealing this critically important phenomenon which so many scholars are happy to ignore. The… Keep Reading

The Joyless Ingratitude Of The Postmodern Left

If by the fluke of your birth you were to find yourself in Ethiopia, it wouldn’t be unusual for you to travel several miles, by foot, to obtain perhaps the most basic necessity of life on this planet, besides breathable air that is. Water. People in Ethiopia walk for hours and miles to fill up filthy buckets at a well of dubious health quality and then walk for hours and miles back to the squalor of their hovels, only to re-embark on the quest once again the next day. It’s walk or die. It’s a battle for survival against the… Keep Reading

Liberalism As a Blind Faith Religion

In the book of Hebrews, chapter eleven verse one, the Bible defines faith as being the substance of hope in things unseen. Those of us who are skeptical of the claims found in supposedly holy texts know that this is only half correct; in addition to hope in things unseen, religious faith is the denial of that which can be seen. The evidence for a godless universe is abundant and has brought us to a day and age in which the concept of a supernatural creator may be dismissed with a quick reference to Occam’s infamous razor: The God Theory… Keep Reading

On Libertarian Arrogance

Recently, I was privy to an exchange on social media that highlighted the intellectual and moral arrogance observed in many libertarians. Certain members of the Liberty Movement seem to be so sure of their superiority that they miss the authoritarian allure of a Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders. Turning a blind eye (or turning up our noses) at those we disagree with will not help advance the ideas about individual rights, the rule of law, benefits of markets, or any of the other foundations upon which so many of us base our worldviews if not our careers. Rather than dismiss… Keep Reading

Dennis Prager: Pope Francis And The Decline Of The West

In this short commentary written by Dennis Prager, I agree with his overall assessment that the left influences Christianity and Judaism today much more so than vice versa. It is the left that dictates our cultural, moral, and ethical norms. Dennis Prager does not discuss the deeper reason for this development, though I have no doubt from his other writings that he would agree that Gnosticism ultimately explains what has happened. In essence, the Western Man has divorced theology from ontology and epistemology. In terms of ontology, this methodological and substantial divorce means that our understanding of “being-ness” must end… Keep Reading
