Those still plugged-in to the hellish 24-hour news cycle were subject to the praise and adulation by the media this week of one Emma Watson (a.k.a Hermione Granger), who made an ‘uplifting and inspiring’ speech to the UN Womens’ Conference to kick off the ‘HeforShe’ campaign, which seeks to rope hapless men into supporting the delusional egalitarianism that will liberate humanity from biology forever.

Indie Rock band Cold War Kids emerged on the scene in 2004, with a bass-driven, anti-powerchord, telecaster/keyboard funk that helped reclaim Rock from from the whiny grunge-pop crooners of the late 90’s.
A lesser-known track from their lesser-known album, (more…)
Andy Nowicki’s latest memoir, Confessions of a Would-be Wanker is a collection of reflections and personal anecdotes about a man’s struggle with the sexual. Filled with quotable maxims, I found myself laughing out loud to several of his painfully awkward-but-wonderful self-conscious observations that beset this coming of age manifesto-of-sorts. (more…)
Everyone listen in, I’m going to tell you the truth that you don’t want to hear: (more…)
Identitarianism, for those unfamiliar with the term, is both a political ideology and general worldview that places one’s extended ethnic family at the centre of considerations of state, religion and politics (more…)
Radfem/Cultural Marxist bashing has been done to death in this corner of the Internet. In fact they have been trolled to great effect by the likes of Matt Forney and Roosh V, who by touching on their soft spots, were catapulted to internet stardom, as every self-righteously outraged leftoid re-tweeted their deliberately provocative satire with zeal. Somewhat shrill atheist video blogger, Thunderfoot has also gotten a piece of the action by calling out the RadFems for what they truly are (hint:they’re not suffragettes). (more…)
I’ve been reflecting on the dissatisfaction of young men in the west. I think that in a large part, it stems from the nature of the modern economy. Our jobs are removed from our communities. Upon moving out of home, we are given a choice of either living an a rat’s nest inner city apartment or a commute in traffic for hours from the vast wastelands of outer suburbia. To buy either of these less-than-preferable real estate options requires debt-servitude to the banking cartel, making your life’s mission to pay them, rather than your family, community or your own pursuits.

I’ve encountered many along my path towards the right, who despite making freedom, taxes and tyranny their main talking points, are liberals down to the core. They can usually be brought out of hiding with a few leading questions if they don’t show their true colors by accident. These types are the most pernicious because they flirt with dangerous ideas (more…)
Since starting this blog I’ve sensed that there are two types of readers – those in my personal circles/stumblers from Google and readers of the blogosphere/bloggers. Since it has taken most in the ‘blogosphere’ or in alternative media in general a substantial commitment in time, effort and personal development to arrive at their points of view, I’ve put together a brief background of some of my influences for the ‘uninitiated’. Or have a look at my Blogroll. (more…)
In the first part of this post, I discussed how the post-industrial world and its associated ills have created the modern fascination with the apocalypse. Since this fringe-turned-pop culture movement is based in fantasy and imagination, rather than actual experience, it has given birth to a number of fallacies.
In 2001, the Argentine government defaulted on its loans and un-pegged the peso from the dollar, resulting in a swift devaluation. Along with the lead up to these events – high unemployment, unavailability of credit, a loss of faith in public institutions and rampant inflation, more than half the country was plunged into poverty, looting and riots.
After some research on the experiences of Argentines in a post economic collapse environment, I’ve summarised some of the misconceptions about what surviving entails. (more…)
