On Abortion

Fun fact: until recently, I had never engaged people on the topic of abortion.  Living in a red state, I have had little contact with the baby killers.  I also tended to avoid the topic; perhaps I subconsciously knew I would hate the results.

Honestly, I was inclined to believe that things are the way they are because of inertia and Wendy Davis.

I was wrong.

The Limits Of Mediocrity

Source: Will Moyer

Though my relationship with the ideology has been stormy to say the least, I ultimately concede my politics and philosophy to be libertarian.

Despite my blatant polemics, inevitably I uphold liberty, the quality to control one’s actions, as the highest end.  Human society cannot work without human action, the limitations of civilization require a degree of freedom for it’s citizenry.   A coherent society must seek and maintain a middle ground between these two forces.  While I maintain that our current incoherence is due to embracing individual hedonism over social standards, I cannot agree with an argument that the hierarchy must always supersede the individual.  From what I have seen, to invert the poisoned beliefs underling the anarchist milieu will only serve to accomplish the very same deconstruction of both man and state.

That said, I find that there is no limit of charlatans and morons willing to remind me why I took issue with libertarianism to begin with.

Liberty Without Agency: Food Insecurity In College

Source: Washington Post

In an ongoing crusade to distract us from our total lack of self or cultural identity, the West now comes to face the latest crisis-that-isn’t: food insecurity.

For someone who struggles to make $50 a week for provisions, Paul’s attire is pretty trendy.  I wager that jacket could secure him a few weeks of “nutritional food,” alone.

I Hate John Green

Let me introduce my readers to what could easily be the most punchable face I’ve ever seen.

Author John Green’s enlightened argument against common sense doesn’t help the case against his face.  Especially when his “enlightenment” translates to seeing your crotch as a whole grain cereal.  johngreen

Liberty Without Agency: Sandoval the Squaw Squalls Stupidly

injunOn April 4th an “indigenous” woman by the ridiculously indigenous name of Xochitl Sandoval at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign threatened to kill herself over  some words on clothing.  No, seriously.  In her formal letter to the school she spends a paragraph detailing how she would blow her mediocre brains out on the quad.

Agency as Privilege: Educating for Justice

The goings on at the 15th annual White Privilege Conference held in Madison, Wisconsin over the weekend have of course been making the rounds on social media. Some are supportive, others are hateful, others simply find it amusing. Put me in the latter category. While I find the proceedings to be highly comical I also find them sad and ironic. The main theme of the conference was of course the absolute social supremacy of white people along with the complete denial of the agency of non-whites. This really should not surprise people anymore.

White people attending a postmodern church service.

Suey “Ching-Chong” Park Demands Make-Work Politics

Source: Theden

A race joke by Stephen Colbert has massively triggered biscuit-headed attention whore Suey Park.  This has created something resembling news on the social networks.

The overreaction and ridiculous twitter crusade reveals to us a culture that is utterly devoid of political dialectic.  Chop Suey’s butthurt also hilariously proves the stereotype that Asians have as difficult a time with humor as they do with sounding out “L.”

School Protects Child From Own Stupidity, “Progress” Reacts

Source: Mashable

A North Carolina school is being criticized for caring about a child’s safety more than appealing to the hipster and single-motherhood demographic (i.e. liberals).

Unfortunately named 9-year-old Grayson Bruce was apparently too busy being a special snowflake to get the hint regarding social hierarchy.  Recognizing this, the child was told by Buncombe Country Schools to stop making himself a target and to stop bringing his My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic backpack to school.

Alone in the Dark

So-called “post-modernity” is the summarization of the elements following our  deconstruction of all things built on abstract thought. Post-modernity is the final frontier of human misery; The last miserable grasp for meaning in a path of desolation lain before the psyche of the Westerner. The Westerner hopes to gain a sense of belonging and identity by completely eliminating the structures left behind by his/her ancestors. Nihilism, gnostic atheism, cultural relativism, gender relativism, race relativism, anything that completely eliminates identification outside “consciousness”, is eagerly wielded like a torch in the hands of western civilization.

Celebrating Diversity: Liberal Tolerance and the “Religion of Peace”

I’ve long maintained that you can predict most liberal positions will just be the opposite of whatever conservatives are talking about at the moment. This is certainly the case any time some progressive smirks and proclaims that Islam is totally no different whatsoever than Christianity in terms of social consequence. Even the New Atheists, a group notorious for misadventures in philosophy, are at least intellectually honest enough to loudly disagree with the liberals on their naive premise that Islam is “no more problematic than Christianity” and cite plenty of convincing reasons for why this isn’t true. Quite naturally, the liberals considered the intellectual case for disapproving of Islam at considerable length, and then constructed a carefully reasoned rebuttal of this premise. Just kidding! They did nothing but scream “Islamophobia” at full volume, peppering retorts of “Not All Muslims Are Like That” in between mandatory accusations of xenophobia and racism.

Pro-tip, excluding extremists is common sense, not intolerance.
