Why Anarchism+ Is A Conservative Movement

By Legionscatz As someone who has typically placed themselves on the left of the anarchist movement, a common trend I have noticed emerging among my so-called “comrades” is that much of the left’s philosophy is becoming indistinguishable from the socially conservative movements that most anarchists have traditionally opposed. […]

Feminism: The Goddess That Fails

By Becky Kevorkian Despite what they would like you to believe, feminists are not for “equality”, they are for the special interests of women specifically, while ignoring very real instances of inequalities against men. If feminists were truly a group oriented toward supporting equality for all, they would […]

The Ghastly Idea of ‘Equality for All’

By Kirkpatrick Sale Equality is a pernicious and dangerous political policy, but that’s exactly what Obama declared in full voice in his second inaugural speech as the cause and preoccupation of his government for the next four years. He explicitly promised equality for women, gays, illegal immigrants, the […]

NRA Shooting Self in Foot

American Spectator The National Rifle Association is hobbling its own public relations effort by remaining committed to its original Sandy Hook response, namely that an armed guard should be stationed in every school. This view was introduced by Wayne LaPierre at a tone-deaf, now-infamous press conference. That event was […]

Gun Control: Who Gets Control?

By Darian Worden Supporting gun control laws means giving government more credit than it deserves. Government is an institution run and staffed by people with their own interests and personalities. Are they really any smarter, more competent, or less likely to escalate violence than the average person? If […]

Liberalism Versus Blacks

By Thomas Sowell There is no question that liberals do an impressive job of expressing concern for blacks. But do the intentions expressed in their words match the actual consequences of their deeds? San Francisco is a classic example of a city unexcelled in its liberalism. But the […]

Ban Schools, Not Guns

From Takimag. ____________ by Kathy Shaidle I blame the Burning Schoolhouse. Canadians are perversely proud that our most popular backyard firework is unavailable in the United States. More like a science-fair volcano than a proper pyrotechnic, the homely Burning Schoolhouse merely spews a two-foot flame that lasts half […]

Our people were always armed

From Lingit Latseen by Vince Rinehart Gun control is not for Native people. It is for people who can’t or won’t take on the sacred duty to protect their families, their people, their lands and their way of life. When I was 13 I attended a gathering of […]

A broader-based response to shootings

By Chris Uggen I’ve been reluctant to write about the terrible events at Sandy Hook Elementary School because the wounds are still too fresh for any kind of dispassionate analysis. As a social scientist, however, I’m disappointed by the fear-mongering and selective presentations of the research evidence I’ve […]

Why Gay Marriage Divides the World

More on the psychological origins of political beliefs: “Other research has found that liberals tend to see moral issues in terms of individual suffering or unfairness, whereas conservatives have more group-level concerns, such as loyalty, patriotism and respect for authority and tradition. Across dozens of countries, liberals are […]

A Fucking Good Time

From the Inferno. ____________ Ostensibly, she’s a horny, hyper-enhanced, insatiable fuckpig, ready to give hummers to all cummers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days per year, 3 holes per session… …until the director yells “cut”, upon which she reverts to a hollow, empty, used-up […]
