Striving To Cease Being Addicted To Distraction

Striving To Cease Being Addicted To Distraction

0600 – Wake up, start coffee maker. 0605 – Check Twitter for new “notifications.” Check email for new posts from Dampier, Land, Social Matter, The Mitrailleuse. Etc. Check Drudge to see if the world ended overnight. 0620 – Begin reading local newspaper. Front section is a mish mash of local crime, state legislature blather, Christians beheaded by ISIS, chickens […]

The Radicals Are The Only Ones We Read

The Radicals Are The Only Ones We Read

Remember the donkey, Benjamin, from Animal Farm? He is a dissident intellectual who sees how things really are, providing exposition to the reader about how the ridiculous, surreptitious deception defines the post-revolution farm. He’s not a resister, he’s not a rabble-rouser and he’s not counter-revolutionary. He is passive, and he passively speaks the sober truth, with […]

On borders Status Quo Bias Doesnt Count

Randomly poll American citizens if there are any U.S. states that they believe should combine. You aren’t going to field many offers. Next ask them if there are any states they’d prefer to see broken up. Suggestions are, again, likely to be few and far between. How about states that should see their borders re-drawn? […]

I was interested in the Church at the time, mainly for its central place in the history of the West. My friend and I had numerous late-night discussions (beer […]

Grand Pronouncements Are Nice But Having A Full Life Is Better The Truth About Charlie Hebdo

Grand Pronouncements Are Nice But Having A Full Life Is Better The Truth About Charlie Hebdo

Progressive journalist and civil libertarian Glenn Greenwald has a motto: “Misapplying private death etiquette to public figures creates false history and glorifies the ignoble.” He rejects the idea that atrocious public figures deserve a reprieve from condemnation upon their death. By his philosophy, if they commit sins in the public square, then let ‘em have it […]
