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 […]

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 […]

When Christ appeared in history there was no […]

A Reflection on the Storytelling Crisis

The recent Star Wars trilogy, known as the sequels, roped in an estimated two billion in box offices worldwide. It is the highest-grossing trilogy of the franchise; immensely profitable, yet there is a crisis that is revealed at the center of it—a crisis that, unsurprisingly, runs deep in most artistic products of contemporary secular culture. The new Star Wars movies, […]

The Origin of the Hospital

While recognizing that the current global crisis is largely steeped in a divorce between medicine and ethics, it is important to step back and look at how the medical profession has evolved in history. What gave healthcare the universal appeal as we know today? Why is it that healthcare is looked at by many to […]

Salvation Through Creativity

Man, the microcosm is responsible for the whole structure of nature and whatever takes place in man affects the whole of nature. Man gives life and spirit to nature, through his creative freedom, and he kills or fetters it through his own servitude and his fall into material necessity. –Nikolai Berdyaev1 In the summer of […]
