The Singularity Should Make Us Good Christians

THE SINGULARITY SHOULD PUT THE FEAR OF GOD IN YOU

THE SINGULARITY SHOULD PUT THE FEAR OF GOD IN YOU I’ve been having weird dreams lately. Part of my dream last night involved the singularity and a word called “ultrapunishment.” Needless to say, it was more of a nightmare. It was pretty abstract, but the jist of the dream was that the “Mariani family secrets” were […]

Secession Lagniappe 22

Bruce Thornton over at The Hoover Institution says the European Union’s days are numbered.  Among the culprits are demographics, excessive regulation, monolithic monetary policy, welfare statism, secularism, multiculturalism, and rising nationalism, some of which are certainly intertwined.  As he correctly points out, this list is mostly well understood – but perhaps the “perfect storm” view of […]

There Is No Freedom In Being Uncomfortable Within Your Skin

THERE IS NO FREEDOM IN BEING UNCOMFORTABLE WITHIN YOUR SKIN

It was only a matter of time before libertarianism jumped the shark. The childishly optimistic sect of the liberty movement is moving past pot legalization and gay marriage. Their detente with liberals resulted in a massive culture victory. Pot and sodomy are de rigueur in mainstream American culture, whether you agree with them or not.

Apologies for any paywalled links, I’ve tried to double-up sources where that occurs. Local law enforcement teamed up with the FBI to raid a meeting of The Republic of Texas, a group that believes they never legally joined the union. More here.  And a RT documentary on the group from last year: A group of Southern Tier towns […]

“That’s gross,” and other hedonic considerations You may be familiar with Truffaut’s famous quote, “there’s no such thing as an anti-war film,” which captures the quandry of inadvertently glorifying war by giving it a cinematic representation. I think this is quote is better rendered the more general a “there is no such thing as an anti-hedonistic […]

For The U S Force Is Not Enough To Defeat Isis

Reprinted from the Press and Journal: She never saw it coming. Appearing on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf was caught off-guard by the host’s tough questions. When asked what it will take for the U.S. to defeat the Islamic State, Harf admitted “we cannot win this war by killing them.” […]

Introducing The Mitrailleuses Trolling Contest

Introducing The Mitrailleuses Trolling Contest

Introducing the Mitrailleuse’s trolling contest Let’s screw with people! There are a lot of stupid publications out there. Some of them are so stupid that they are easy to troll. But fake articles can also speak to truths about the media, or, in the case of the Sokal affair, academic publishing. These are usually funny, and we’d like to […]
