Democrat-aclypse Now: Millennials are Leaving

Elections are governed by the middle-aged, political movements are sustained by youth. It's no secret that older folks vote in higher proportions than younger. They simply have the most at stake in any election as changes in policy, usually taxes, affect them most. But, the energy which sustains a political party comes from how well … Continue reading Democrat-aclypse Now: Millennials are Leaving

Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Kanye, The Culture War and the Reassertion of Natural Rights

When I said yesterday that "The Culture War is Over. The cultural Marxists lost." I didn't mean that there was no more work to be done.  On the contrary, the real work is just beginning. Kanye West just single-handedly fought the Battle of the Bulge in the Culture War.  Good on him.  But, like that … Continue reading Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Kanye, The Culture War and the Reassertion of Natural Rights

Kanye West and the Utopia Trap

The Culture War is over.  The Marxists lost. They were always going to lose.  Because cultural Marxism cannot sustain itself without feeding off of other people's wealth.  It's a parasitic ideology that first consumes the host then drives it mad to destroy everyone else. After the 2016 election of Donald Trump when Kanye West had … Continue reading Kanye West and the Utopia Trap

Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live — Kanye West and the Critical Shift in the Culture War

The social media landscape is aTwitter thanks to seven simple words from Kanye West. I love the way Candace Owens thinks — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) April 21, 2018 From there the explosion of fresh air into a conversation about race, social inequality and identity politics so stale you could make croûtons with it marked a … Continue reading Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live — Kanye West and the Critical Shift in the Culture War

Breaching the Public Trust – Facebook is the Beginning

Last night I was chatting with a friend while waiting for my daughter. She told me her phone now informs her when her bills are due.  Now, that may not seem like a big deal, but it is when you realize that she never told her phone to do that. Her phone is scanning her … Continue reading Breaching the Public Trust – Facebook is the Beginning

Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Why Hell Isn’t Other People

I spend some time expounding on ideas in yesterday's blog post about how the writers of NBC's The Good Place takes Sartre's No Exit and turns it on its head.  But, more than that, how important it is for us to remain positive in the face of a vicious Culture War we neither asked for nor want to fight. … Continue reading Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Why Hell Isn’t Other People

No Exit from “The Good Place”

If you haven't been watching NBC's The Good Place you are missing out on one of the shrewdest take downs of modern liberalism in recent memory. What was likely sold to NBC execs as an excoriation of religious, conservative "Fly-Over" Deplorables, turns out, in it's grand twist at the end of Season 1 to be … Continue reading No Exit from “The Good Place”

Things Must Be Serious, Everyone’s Lying

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker had a moment of clarity once.  He famously said, "When things get serious, you have to lie." Given the state of affairs in his beloved European Union right now Mr. Juncker and company are doing a lot of lying. It is rare in politics to get that kind of honesty … Continue reading Things Must Be Serious, Everyone’s Lying
