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…)
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…)
As I stepped onto the train that goes through one of my city’s many Chinatowns, I felt like the incarnation of a young Walt Kowalski. This display of

In this ‘post-industrial’ age of service and consumption based economies in the western world, jobs are not what they used to be. The days of working for an employer for 25+ years, taking long service leave and retiring with a gold watch are relics of the past. I’m sure you’ve heard that before, but I point out the key difference – most commentators will tell you that the key to success in the modern workplace is to abandon loyalty, stay ‘adaptable’ and ‘dynamic’, and deal with chopping and changing employers, and even careers. There is usually some mention of ‘Gen Y’ and how they have different values. What a load of poppyco*k. The real reason why young workers don’t have ‘loyalty’ (as though this is a measurable metric) is that the employment market with its needless credentialism (‘Masters preferred’ for your clerical job, anyone?), insecurity and low rates of pay do not offer a steady career path of meaningful, and dignified work.
