The Sacrificial Religion of Feminism

The preview issue of Ms. magazine, founded by Gloria Steinem and published in 1972, had a curious image on its cover: a picture of the goddess Kali, and instead of a myriad of weapons in her many hands, which is the traditional Hindu depiction, she brandished items such as a typewriter and clothes iron—items usually associated […]

The Answer to Social Iatrogenesis

“The medical establishment has become a major threat to health. The disabling impact of professional control over medicine has reached the proportions of an epidemic,” philosopher Ivan Illich writes in the opening passage of his book Medical Nemesis. These words ring true, especially given how much our current world crisis has to do with public […]

Why Hollywood Wants a Black Superman

Now that Henry Cavill’s Superman is set to be permanently retired from the DCEU, reportedly in favor of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ black Superman project, yet another iteration of the diversity casting debate has sprung up among critics and moviegoers. Many comic book loyalists, disappointed and frustrated by the constant tinkering of studios with their beloved franchises, have […]

2023, the Apocalypse Continues

I am convinced that we have entered an era when anthropology will become a more relevant tool than political science. We will have to radically change our interpretation of events, stop thinking as products of the Enlightenment, and finally envisage the radical nature of violence; this will produce a quite different kind of rationality as […]

Rishi Sunak, Infosys, and Digital IDs

Now that the UK government has formally accepted Rishi Sunak as its Prime Minister, let’s look briefly at what his appointment would mean for the Western world at large. It is important to highlight the obvious, namely that Sunak, in stark contrast to the self-professed creed of the so-called “rules-based order,” was not voted into […]

Assange and the Decline of the West

It is rather surprising to see how minor a topic the imprisonment of Julian Assange is in the daily discourses of the Anglo-American world. I write “Anglo-American” because Assange had been tried in the UK and is now readied for extradition to the United States where he will be further prosecuted for publishing highly-classified documents […]

Major Florida Superintendent, New Director Named in Ongoing Lawsuit Alleging Suspect Hiring Practices of Serial Criminal Child Abuser

As a broadcaster and writer, I always encourage my audience to focus on improving their local community rather than fixating on endless drama out of DC. So it disturbs me to discover some serious questions parents are asking in my native Polk County’s School District, one of the largest in Florida and the nation with over […]

Government Is a Mass Violence Machine

Tyranny is a habit which may be developed until at last it becomes a disease. I declare that the noblest nature can become so hardened and bestial that nothing distinguishes it from that of a wild animal. Blood and power intoxicate; they help to develop callousness and debauchery. The mind then becomes capable of the […]

Active Love in “The Brothers Karamazov”

The Brothers Karamazov is the last novel by Fyodor Dostoevsky; it was initially serialized in 1879 by Russkiy Vestnik magazine. The story of this novel, set in 19th-century Russia, details the contradictory brothers of Alexei, Ivan, and Dmitri Karamazov. Though the majority of the novel deals with the elder brother Dmitri’s attempt to clear himself of parricide, Dostoevsky […]
