A Person is Smart; People are Stupid–and the Coronavirus Proves it

Watching this coronavirus thing unfold reminded me of this clip in Men In Black where the question is whether or not to tell people something since “they are smart.”  The retort is that a person is smart.  People on the other hand are stupid, panicky, etc.  If you ever doubted this, I set before you the coronavirus.

From everything we know so far, the coronavirus is not that big of a deal.   Or, I should say, COVID-19, because in fact there are many other varieties of the coronavirus; so, strictly speaking, its a coronavirus, not the coronavirus.  But that nuance … continue reading...


On Religious Exemptions From Vaccinations, Building Codes, Etc

In yesterday’s post I hit hard at a certain British politician who has been agitating for compulsory vaccination, giving special attention to his distinction between the “State” and individuals.  He made many other points, I think all of them anticipated and refuted in yet another post of mine, here.  One topic he brings up is one I haven’t spoken on before, which I’d like to address specifically.  My point will be that the carving out of exemptions for ‘religious’ reasons misses the point, and the ‘point’ is not limited to the issue of vaccinations.

Here was his bit in… continue reading...


Against Compulsory Vaccination

I have spoken on this topic before, most recently re: the coronavirus (here) and more extensively here.  From that latter post, I’d just like to remind the reader of the words of Supreme Court Chief Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes:

“The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the Fallopian tubes. Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in the 1927 decision, Buck vs. Bell

Holmes was quite correct.  Now, compulsory sterilization was finally considered to be grotesque, repealed state by state until they were all … continue reading...


Can our Liberties Survive the Coronavirus? Compulsory vaccination, etc.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a ‘think piece’ describing how things like the coronavirus illustrate why I am a ‘nationalist.’  You could sum it up basically as this:  a proper role of the government is to serve its own people first and primarily.

The fatal flaw of globalists is that they are perfectly happy to see their own citizens suffer as long as the globalist can thump his chest about how ‘compassionate’ he is.  The more reasonable route does not strike me as controversial… you know, how about protecting the interests of your own citizens and then provide … continue reading...


The Fellow Traveler Test For Insanity: Facilitated Human Extinction

So here is another fun one, coming hot off the presses: ‘The only solution for climate change is letting the human race become extinct’.

I have been covering this nonsense on this blog for years, so I trust that my readers at least won’t be surprised by such fare.  I know that I’m not.   Rather than talk about the wellsprings of such noxious viewpoints, which I have done in the past, I’m going to take it from a different angle.

One of the things I’ve argued before [see #1] is that one can often discern whether or not something … continue reading...


The Corona Virus and why I am a “Nationalist.”

It is not politically correct to be a ‘nationalist’ these days, but that’s largely because of the self-serving myths that globalists like to engage in and a general lack of historical knowledge and rational thinking.  The word ‘nationalist’ brings to mind the Nazis, where we are regularly reminded that they were “National Socialists”, emphasizing the first word in the phrase, but never the second.  Like I said, self-serving myths.

However, while the word ‘socialist’ hasn’t changed all that much since the 1930’s, the word ‘nationalist’ has.  In other words, its a logical fallacy called ‘equivocation,’ where the same word has … continue reading...


The Trump Acquittal And the Democrats

With Trump’s acquittal finally in the bag, I want to issue some quick thoughts which I believe are more important than their brevity suggests.

A republican or constitutional/libertarian like myself might say that what we’ve witnessed is the Constitution ‘working.’   The Senate blocked a spurious attack by the House.  An independent might also say that what we’ve witnessed shows the Constitution ‘working.’  The House was moved to hold the president accountable for actions it deemed worthy of removing the president from office.  But, alas, in neither view, you won’t see democrats concurring.

To the democrats, this was not the Constitution … continue reading...


Reflections on the 2020 March for Life (Trump, Steinem, Hitler, etc)

Last Friday I participated in the March for Life in Washington DC.  This post captures a variety of thoughts and reactions I’ve had since.

The Silent Majority

In some places, the only way that the people can express their views is when they do it in large numbers.  This is typical in third world countries, of course, but the realities that drive that dynamic have revealed themselves more recently in Hong Kong, too.  Very simply, there is a certain safety in numbers.  Governments may very well want to slaughter the opposition, but with the world watching, they have to tread … continue reading...


Dr. Martin King Jr Meets Modern Democrats

martin luther king

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”  — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

What ugliness is this that the people who appropriate King’s mantle simultaneously make it their actual policy to judge people by the color of their skin, or the genitals between their legs.   Thankfully, more and more people are seeing that the party of the KKK hasn’t really changed… its all about gaining and obtaining power.  Nothing more.  Nothing less.… continue reading...


Infantile Nation: Russian Hacking

When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 1 Cor 13:11

The other day there was another glut of headlines about Russia ‘interfering’ in our elections, evoking such predictable remarks by the usual suspects about Trump colluding with Russia, etc., etc.  Those were the headlines–but had anyone gone beyond them to the underlying claims, what had actually taken place was that hackers–alleged to be Russian–had attempted to infiltrate Burisma, the Ukrainian company which the Bidens have become intertwined … continue reading...


Quick, Everyone into the Cities or the Planet will Die!

A couple of weeks ago I posted a screed titled “Christians be alert for the “Nudge”; Kian Goh and fighting ‘climate change’ by urbanizing the planet.

I hope no one doubted me, but just in case, here is an article in the ‘reputable’ British rag, The Guardian, that came across my desk.  It is a couple of years old, but illustrates the sort of thinking I was trying to expose.

The presence of such articles in such ‘respectable’ outlets is indicative of a broader, widespread acceptance of these ideas.  I directed my comments to Christians, because of … continue reading...


Enter the Sandmann: more ‘on our own’ musings

More Americans are realizing that it tends to be the case that whatever the “Left” accuses the “Right” of doing, it is the “Left” actually doing it.  Examples are everywhere, from the #MeToo movement to the more recent ‘quid pro quo’ business with Biden and Burisma, and political violence–especially left-wing advocacy and normalization of it (you can do anything to fascists, understand)–which we saw manifest in the Nicholas Sandmann incident, as illustrated by the tweet by Aslan, which is just the tip of the iceberg.

I’m not the only one who remembers the heaping piles of scorn and outrage … continue reading...


Musings on Iran: We are on our own.

I remember walking the halls of Walter Reed hospital back in 2012, accompanying a friend who was there to visit with a friend who had given his leg and arm in service to the country.   This young man, at the time, had no regrets.  “We fight them there so that we don’t have to fight them here.”  The place was relatively quiet at the time, but even so, the sense that here was a place which served as a monument to those who did not say such platitudes, but lived them.

I remember that story sometimes when other events unfold.  … continue reading...


In which I contradict myself, culturally appropriating the left: safety net vs safety hammock vs safety wet blanket

One of the distinguishing marks of an American ‘conservative’ is his allegiance to reality.   I have been pondering some very real things of late, which are driving me to issue some proposals that on their face, do not appear very ‘conservative.’  My original attempt to spell it all out ran 14 pages, including calculations, justifications, rationales, etc.  In a bid to get the idea out, I’m stripping some of that away.  However, there is more thought behind this than what is presented here.

What are the ‘realities’ that prompted these proposals?

  1. There is a definite tilt towards socialism in the
