Cutting to the Quick

1,655 words

I have always found that honest people, right or wrong, like to cut to the quick. If something requires an explanation, a sentence or two ought to do it. The answer must be direct, sensible, and, most importantly, interesting.

Here are a few examples:

Most boxing fans take it for granted that the black American heavyweight Joe Louis had been the top contender when he fought Jimmy Braddock for the title in 1937. Read more …

At the Heart of Darkness

3,399 words

Editor’s Note:

It is a little-known — but entirely unsurprising — fact that Samuel Francis had a deep love and encyclopedic knowledge of H. P. Lovecraft. In honor of Lovecraft’s birthday, here is Francis’ review of S. T. Joshi’s H. P. Lovecraft: A Life and Lovecraft’s Miscellaneous Writings. — Greg Johnson

Unite the Right Did Nothing Wrong
(But There’s Still Room for Improvement)

1,532 words

Well the unity didn’t last long. Immediately after Unite the Right, those who did not participate started attacking the speakers and organizers. For instance, Katie McHugh and AntiDem have used Unite the Right as a pretext to attack Richard Spencer. Now the speakers and organizers are blaming and disavowing one another. Richard Spencer, Eli Mosley, and Baked Alaska, for example, have disavowed Jason Kessler over a tweet about Heather Heyer, who joined the violent mob that attacked Unite the Right and died as a result.  Read more …

Open Letter to Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe

1,188 words

Dear Governor McAuliffe,

In the Soviet Union, they had essentially two kinds of prisoners in their vast gulag system: the 58s and everyone else. The 58s had been indicted under the provisions of Article 58 of the Soviet criminal code, which gave the state license to lock up virtually anyone for political reasons.  Read more …

Learning from Donald Trump

1,676 words

Having a Mencken-like disdain for America’s ruling class, I would like to put forward what I have entitled Quintilian’s Postulate 1: conservatives are stupid and lack courage; liberals are stupid and lack self-awareness. Donald Trump is a unique politician, I believe, because he possesses both courage and self-awareness.
