Apparently, Spotify ditched Neil instead. Batya Ungar-Sargon and Robby Soave react to Neil Young’s efforts to push The Joe Rogan Experience off of Spotify.
I thought it was funny when Trump did it, still funny when Biden does it.
Batya Ungar-Sargon is part of the anti-woke left, which is good, but like a lot of anti-woke leftists she seems to be embracing “law and order liberalism” at the same time. So we’re stuck with a context between the woke but pig-hating left and the anti-woke but pig-loving […]
It’s time for a Megyn Kelly Show substantive debate and discussion today – this time on guns in America. Megyn Kelly is joined by Stephen Gutowski, founder of The Reload (a gun rights website), and Mike Spies, senior editor at The Trace (a gun control site), to discuss […]
‘Nothing personal, pal’: Fox’s Peter Doocy says Biden called him to ‘clear the air’ after ‘stupid SOB’ dig

I can’t say I am much impressed with this latest trend in “law and order liberalism” that has emerged lately. In case these folks hadn’t noticed, we’ve had a pandemic and related economic recession and lockdowns for two years now. Not to mention the Third Worldization of the […]
The Democraps are back to being the hawkish imperialist party they were prior to the post-Vietnam era. Not that they ever really changed but for a few decades they at least lip-synced it. By Richard Hanania Why the culture war is global and there will be no insurgency […]
By Ed West In The End of History, Francis Fukuyama wrote about how the fall of East Germany was brought about by a curiously familiar emotion – anger towards the hypocritical lifestyle of the leadership. ‘The Honecker regime in East Germany was critically weakened by a series of […]

By Victor Davis Hanson, Independent Institute Wokeism’s natural logic is to destroy the lives of people of both genders, of all races, and—if need be—of those of every age, all to leverage an otherwise unworkable ideological agenda. Wokeism has been described by its critics as the omnipresent use […]
By Damon Linker, The Week The risk and roots of our nonstop panic and alarm. Have you heard the news about the imminent end of American democracy? The president of the United States has been talking about it — how the country has embraced Jim Crow 2.0 and […]

Krystal and Saagar comment on the media’s reaction to Bari Weiss’s declaration that covid is over and the restrictions need to end now that we have the vaccine

It’ll be good for amplifying news and political content but some people who would have piled aboard will now be absent
America right now is like that tail-end of a marriage that both parties know is already over. The fighting, bickering, blaming, and all the bad stuff. The old center, the status quo is failing and neither side is happy with it anymore. You simply have half the people […]
By Paul Gottfried, American Mind The Left’s support for civil liberties has always been contingent on its own relative strength or weakness. In a thoughtful commentary on “The New Normal and the Assault on Reason,” Glenn Ellmers makes this historical observation: For several centuries, at least since John […]
By Peter R. Quiñones This will be short but it’s a simple way to look at the political culture in the United States (and probably most of Europe as well). If I told you a common tactic of the Left is to demonize any opinion to the Right […]
By Caitlin Johnstone How many journalists are capable of doing what Julian Assange did to expose the criminality of the powerful? Not many. How many are both capable and willing? Fewer still. How many of those are now willing after seeing what’s being done to Assange? Even fewer. […]
YOU CAN TOUCH, BUT YOU CAN’T LOOK: EXAMINING THE INCONSISTENCIES IN OUR AGE OF CONSENT AND CHILD PORNOGRAPHY LAWS
This is an interesting article about a contemporary moral panic. Underage sex is one of America’s latest hysterias. Nowadays, we’ve got not only the Pizzagate/QAnon “pedophile under every bed” hysteria, but there is increasingly an effort to equate sexual relations between adults and postpubescent minors with pedophilia. An […]

Understanding the Divide Between Social Justice Advocates and the Left-Leaning “Anti-Woke” Community
The more pervasive totalitarian humanism has become, the more there has been a pushback, not only from the right but from the left. Hence, the emergence of opposition to totalitarian humanism on the Left. The development of a “left-wing anti-totalitarian humanism” is what I have been hoping would […]
By Jeff Salzman In this episode, I discuss a terrific essay I stumbled upon that brings an integral sensibility to a new cultural emergent: the differentiation of the political left into “woke” and “anti-woke” ideologies.. Cultural evolution proceeds through a process of 1) differentiating and 2) integrating. […]
Recent research by Pew shows that the perspective depicted in the meme below (so-called “faith and flag conservatives”) only represents about 10% of the US population. Most of the US right-wing nowadays are business conservatives, pro-labor populists, and socially moderate to liberal center-right or quasi-libertarian types. One thing […]

By Aleksey Bashtavenko Academic Composition The American mentality is unabashedly elitist. Indeed, mediocrity is anathema to the American way of life. Much of the Americans’ ire toward communism has nothing to do with its tyranny, but with their animus toward equality. John Steinback had it right: Americans see […]
By Samuel Goldman The Week The next battle in the war on “critical race theory” is here. Bills recently introduced in Congress and several states would require public schools to make information about their curriculum and classroom practices available to the public.

Brazen Drug Dealing & Fentanyl Use Witnessed At Official But Illegal San Francisco Homeless “Linkage Center”
I don’t generally agree with Michael Shellenberger on these issues (although he is interesting in his advocacy of nuclear power), but his ongoing reporting on the conflict between bourgie-normie liberal-yuppie-gentrifiers and the woke Left in the Bay Area is unintentionally hilarious. His writing reminds me of the 1970s […]
By Gilbert T. Sewall Spectator World In 1958, Aldous Huxley foresaw a congestion of power able to shape and defy popular will. “Under the relentless thrust of accelerating over-population and increasing over-organization, and by means of ever more effective methods of mind-manipulation, the democracies will change their nature,” […]

There is a book that is now getting a lot of attention in neocon circles called “San Fran-sicko” by a moderate progressive named Michael Schellenberger that is lambasting the supposed libertarian excesses of large city governments like San Francisco, LA, Seattle, Portland, etc. It’s basically a “liberal” version […]

USC Gould School of Law hosted Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner in discussion with Prof. Jody Armour Oct. 29, 2019.
The main problem I see with these critics is that much of their objection to “progressive prosecutors” seems rooted in their disdain for the non-prosecution of “quality of life” offenses, i.e. things that conflict with bourgeois aesthetics, lifestyle, or class interests. That may not be the whole story […]
St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner and Boston’s District Attorney Rachael Rollins two of a wave of prosecutors who are focusing on ending mass incarceration and addressing racial disparities.
By Samuel Goldman, The Week It’s not just ‘wokeness’ and social media. It’s order, fairness, and basic governance. What’s wrong with conservatives?
