This is mostly a library for myself. Here, I drop stories for future reference. Topics include but are not limited to:
Political Theory, Libertarianism, War, Constitution, Central Banking, Middle East, Cultural Marxism, Oppression, Lies, Justice
I entertain conspiracy theories, and yes, I’ve gone down some rabbit holes during my journey. Some profoundly shifted my sense of the world, others were nonsense. I have not gone back and vetted these stories for accuracy.

May, 2015. Politico: “Newsflash: It’s going to Hillary vs Jeb.” Can we all stop pretending that there’s any real suspense?
—” The grandiose narcissist doesn’t seem motivated to avoid rejection, but just to try to maximize his or her pleasure in gaining attention and power. The vulnerable narcissist doesn’t just seek to avoid negative outcomes or even rejection, but to avoid outcomes that will reflect unfavorably on his or her self-image.”—
Those lines are almost flip visions of each other (Especially if one ignores the 1990s.) Turns out, at least since 1959, there an inverse correlation between poverty and homicide in the US. Homicide goes up when poverty decreases. Statically significant and everything. Well, that’s awkward.
Father Merrin (from The Exorcist) describes the propaganda of the left:
“I think the point is to make us despair; to see ourselves as…animal and ugly. To make us reject the possibility that God could love us.”
European Americans who want to keep America’s “essence” European are a “scourge” but Israel has a “non-negotiable right” to be Jewish.
This is the opinion of leading anti-European Jewish supremacist Menachem Rosensaft, who claims to be the “Founding Chairman of the International Network of Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors” and regular columnist in the Zionist-controlled mass media.
“The rights of a Jew under this law, and the rights of an Ole under the Citizenship Law -1952, and the rights of a Ole under any other law, are given to the child or grandchild of a Jew, the spouse of a Jew the spouse of a child and grandchild of a Jew; Except a person who was born Jewish and out of his free will converted his religion.””
If you can’t understand the minimum wage, you should be denied political power and treated like a cute but dangerous child when it comes to economic matters.
Whether a person can understanding the minimum wage should be a fundamental test. Can they distinguish between short term and long term? Can they distinguish between how the world is and how they want it to be?
The explanations by Hazlitt, Friedman and many others are so crystal clear.

The left mistook positions of power for power; they won authority,but lost the culture. So now theyve lost authority too. God Bless America.
Is @Madonna poll dancing on a cross an example of tolerance or hate?
How does the left countenance their hypocrisy???
Originally, the point of the left was fighting poverty. The argument went that Communism produced more wealth because it removed the inefficiency (greed) of those who owned the means of production. Communism was superior because it produced MORE WEALTH. Nobel prize winning economist Paul Samuelson told everyone this was inevitable.
All those scores of millions of people were murdered in the name of helping the poor. (Paul Samuelson, that degenerate monster, posited the question of whether communist wealth did not make its oppression worth it.)
Then, in the parts of the world where people had defended themselves against the communists and kept the snarling horde at bay, CAPITALISM created never-before-seen wealth. Capitalism ended poverty.
Capitalism delivered the promise of early communism’s most starry-eyed proselytizers.
As I like to say: The Messiah of the left has arrived, but the left has no need for a messiah that actually shows up.
The left abandoned their fight against poverty and forgot that it ever existed. They’ve anointed a new messiah, one that is guaranteed to never arrive and ruin their bloodlust for destroying social orders: equality.
It turns out that the gender gap in tech related fields is smaller in poorer countries. In Mexico and Turkey, a proportionally higher % of women go into tech than in the US and Canada.
While there are different ways to interpret this data, it seems likely that given more freedom, many women express themselves by going into more socially oriented fields.
The gender gap could just as easily be interpreted as evidence of liberty and prosperity, than as oppression.
Prosperity seems to encourage gender dimorphism.
In this era when “I identify as” has replaced “I am”, why is it so hard to accept that given the opportunity, many men choose a more masculine imagine, and many women a more feminine one, than each of them would be able to choose in a poorer society?
Answer: the left needs victims. They are nothing without an angry and restless class of victims.
