It seems that recent media buzz surrounding the dramatic rise of the digital currency Bitcoin has attracted swarms of petulant and clamorous rent-seeking “social justice” parasites like flies to a midden heap. This should come as no surprise to anyone that understands the true nature and purpose of feminism and social justice activism. You can hardly expect these troublesome naggers to pass up what looks like a big, juicy pile of resources in the hands of young (mostly) heterosexual, privileged White (and Asian) men. Feminists have been eyeing both the IT industry and libertarian community as potential sources of rent for a while now, and Bitcoin represents an as yet untapped revenue stream.
The face of privilege
Trigger warning: Think Progress
According to an online poll from Simulacrum, the average user is a 32.1-year-old libertarian male. By users’ accounts, those men are mostly white.
Breaking that down, about 95 percent of Bitcoin users are men, about 61 percent say they’re not religious, and about 44 percent describe themselves as “libertarian / anarcho-capitalist.”
Looks like a perfect target.
Apparently Cadillac’s Olympics commercial has given our enlightened equals at Huffpo some fitful nights of sleep.

There are plenty of things to celebrate about being American, but being possessed by a blind mania for working yourself into the ground, buying more stuff and mocking people in other countries just isn’t one of them.
Whoa, slow down there, honey.
Western societal honor has been sacrificed upon the altar of the post-modern. That’s the simple fact of the matter. Honor is now foreign to the mind of the West, and there truly is no standard set for the Western individual. Why should we hold honor in such high regard? What is honor? Why was honor sacrificed?
In all corners of the Earth where honor can historically/presently be found, it is generally defined the same way regardless of culture or region. Honor is the eternal reputation of the self. It is not necessarily defined by intelligence, cunning, strength, speed, or talent. Honor is worthiness, loyalty, truthfulness, respect, being well-mannered, having discipline, and being humble. Ultimately, one of high honor was of high value to society, and held in high regard. Therefore, the actions of the honorable were something to pay mind.
The greatest of us once died for honor.

The Purple Heart is a United States military decoration awarded in the name of the President to those wounded or killed, while serving, on or after April 5, 1917, with the U.S. military.
There are other awards for the “mass slaughter” Plath mentions; the Purple Heart ain’t it.
In less than five generations, the idea of America has gone from this…
From xojane, Duke’s porn star has come out to continue challenging a system that offers her no challenge. Finally.
Except, considering this news initially broke less than two weeks ago (Feb. 21 is the initial xojane story), what Belle “finally” reveals is her high time preference.
A portmanteau of hedonic and dildos, The Dildonic Treadmill refers to the tendency of humans to quickly return to a relatively stable state of vulgarized intellectual comfort despite major changes in ideology. This term was developed from recent reactions over the shift in our blog’s trajectory.
I would be crass and suggest one look up her professional film work to fill in the rest of the picture, but really all porn is the same. We already see the picture, here.
To discriminate, or not to discriminate? That is the question.
…That is to say, this is the distortion of reality presented by a modern media.
Support gay sex or face gay sex in prison.
The argument is typically framed as one side discriminating the other. That this is an unsatisfactory situation goes without saying. Of course it’s bad to discriminate. Now salivate when I ring the bell.
This article will be the beginning of what I plan to be a multi-part, multi-contributor series. The purpose? To seek rapprochement with libertarianism. Yeah, we’re going there.
