I recently watched Ken Burn’s documentary on Prohibition, and somewhere between the story of Carrie Nation and George Remus I realized something about the modern gun control debate: The pro-gun control side is acting on cultural sensibilities expressed as moralistic outrage. How you feel about guns is self-evidently related to the culture that you grew up in, with the typical Southerner or rural American seeing a gun as another everyday household object, while the city dwelling northerner seems to view them more as a dangerous weapon usually owned only by thugs and drug dealers. To a rural Southerner a shotgun leaned up against a corner is no more noteworthy than a blender sitting on a counter-top.
Today I am sharing with the class a perfect representation of the 19th Amendment and its modern result: banal statements plastered on the asses of motorized vehicles. I found this while parking at my local gym.
You’re not going to like what I’m about to show you.
This video comes from England’s Remembrance Day Festival in 2011, their analog to our Veterans Day. This, from the same England that has Muslim boys beheading soldiers in their cities. This, from the same England that once ruled the largest Empire in human history, and is now content producing Doctor Who.
This article is my attempt to start an open dialogue with libertarians in the same vein as Darth Stirner’s “Fascist Libertarianism” article.
I also see a potential alliance and compatibility between occidental traditionalists and libertarians; at least, those of a more minarchist persuasion. Google analytics and social networking tends to support this idea.
It is my intent to argue that the liberty so many seek will be better achieved within a more TRS narrative. That even if you do not fully agree or wish to reflect on such a matter, extenuating circumstances and a growing Fifth Column moves towards forcing your hand one way or another.
There has been a flurry of recent social media activity regarding one Christopher Cantwell, an outspoken and acerbic fellow associated with the post-Raw Paw liberty movement.
The cause of this kerfuffle? Cantwell committed the mortal sin of logically applying libertarian ideas outside the bounds of the Overton Window.
…Not surprisingly, jimmies have been rustled.
Today’s subject comes from totalfascism.
TL;DR: A brave youtuber produces an eight-minute video preaching against the evils of authoritarianism; Total Fascism’s Andrew Anglin responds with a brilliant circling of wagons.
Anglin’s response was a bit excessive, but the request for a Skype debate was nevertheless pure genius.
Fact is, a youtuber that produces trivial videos for the fedora demographic would be utterly trounced in a debate against a well-researched and dedicated ideologue like Anglin.
This gem comes from Princess Free Zone, an up-and-coming brand that promises “to offer an alternative for little girls.” Their page has over 10,000 likes as of this posting.
I think at this point we can safely assume that anything branded as “alternative” or “unique” in the West is guaranteed to involve bending language to accommodate psychological malady. See also: Upworthy, social justice, Cultural Marxism.
This article is a response to Davis M.J. Aurini’s recent “Theology” video on the Parable of the Prodigal Son.
One should ask: what sort of scriptural interpretation can we expect from a man who has in the past shown no respect for the tenants set forth in the very Word of God he purports to explain?

I am reminded of Nietzsche, his quote about looking into the darkness, or something.
…Or was that Rick James/Dave Chappelle?
Downtown Nashville, October 11th, a little after 4pm.
A thin man in a white t-shirt and blue jeans saunters into the alleyway, drunk. The man is a new face to me; neat and clean-cut despite smelling of whiskey. Nothing about him suggests “homeless” to me.
White Shirt had been in earlier, had tried to pick a fight with me. He was angry then, declaring that this world “fucking sucks.” He was different now, subdued.
