Taylor Lorenz is okay being the one doing horrible things

In today's episode, I dive into the irony of report Taylor Lorenz, who only a few weeks ago claimed to be suffering severe PTSD because of mean social media posts. However, she has no issue using the Washington Post to go after a person and treat them terribly simply because they created a successful account… Continue reading Taylor Lorenz is okay being the one doing horrible things

Musk reveals elites do not believe in freedom for all

In today's episode, we spend time speaking a little more philosophically about what the First Amendment to our Constitution really means. It is amazing to watch so many elites in media and the Democrat party reveal themselves for being anti-First Amendment.

Some of those Republics still feel ties to Mother Russia while others wanted to become more like Western civilizations. Vladimir… Continue reading Ukraine is the shiny bauble of distraction

Freedom vs mass formation psychosis

To understand how we got here, we first revisit the teachings of Machiavelli. Though a ruler can rule by loving his subjects, love is a fickle… Continue reading Freedom vs mass formation psychosis

Selling The News

I like to imagine that a lot of people perform the cliché end-of-year introspection ritual. I like to imagine that people who take the time, genuinely enjoy the review of the good moments, and intend to do something to keep from repeating the not so good moments.
