Unintended Consequences:
How the Left Keeps Helping Us

2,054 words

Götz Kubitschek

Everything is going exactly according to plan. This is what super-villains always say, usually just before their plans are upset. (“Seize him, you fools! He’s getting away!”) So, I am may be tempting fate by saying such a thing, but actually I don’t think so. As of late it really does seem like something — Providence, the Invisible Hand, the Cunning of Reason, or what have you — has been at work behind the scenes, helping our cause. In truth, we don’t have a plan, but events are unfolding as if someone does, and as if that someone is smiling upon us (perhaps from atop his perch in Asgard).  Read more …

How to Live as a Dissident

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

4,152 words

I’ve been enjoying Jim Goad’s work for years, and would even say that he has been an influence on my writing style. I laughed (and sometimes barfed) my way through ANSWER Me! Then, of course, there was The Redneck Manifesto, which may be Goad’s best writing, and Shit Magnet. Read more …

Editor’s Note:

The following is the text of a talk Mr. Costello recently delivered to a small group of not-fully-red-pilled neophytes. — Greg Johnson

Suddenly, I Love the French

1,570 words

A few years ago, a friend of mine spent a summer in the south of France with his daughter, who was in grade school at the time. Unfortunately, the daughter caught a bug toward the end of their stay, and my friend made multiple trips to the local pharmacy trying to find the right medicine for her. His French is imperfect, so he struggled to make himself understood by the druggist. Read more …
