Hammer, meet nail

June 08th, 2016 by Vader

Conservatism is in crisis because few still believe in the rational and color-blind rule of law — because there is not enough genuine American liberalism left to conserve.

The Decline of the American Republic

May 26th, 2016 by Patrick Henry

Peter Thiel’s takedown of Gawker, along with Gawker itself, are troubling indicators of the growing weaponization of American civil life.

Towards the end of the Republic, the Roman courts were also struggles for existence, where politics was carried on by other means and to the hilt.

Palpatine pledges

May 23rd, 2016 by Vader

That, if elected as President, his inaugural address will be a reasonable facsimile of this.

Or at least a palimpsest.

The Yudkowsky-Moore Law

May 02nd, 2016 by Vader

Sadly, it has an equally alarming corollary.

Totalitarianism, in a nutshell

April 04th, 2016 by Vader

“I don’t believe in charities …”

It’s not the stormtroopers per se. They’re just the means to an end. That end is the destruction of civil society to make room for Leviathan.

March 27th, 2016 by Bookslinger

Scott Adams has the best explanation of Trump that I’ve read. Adams has been mostly accurate in his predictions too.

The worst part of this election season

March 23rd, 2016 by Vader

Is how many of my interactions online, even with old friends with whom I usually agree, have become testy.

But that won’t pay the bills, so I remind myself that there is no salvation in politics.

More thoughts on the theme that we have the worst elite in our history.
