Interview with Ryan Faulk

3,940 words

It was about a year ago this time that legendary-for-all-the-wrong-reasons Skeptic Youtuber Kraut and Tea decided to take up the sword in a mad quest to slay the White Nationalist hydra that was menacing the internet and, more importantly, frequently making him look dumb. His weapon of choice in the matter was a series of embarrassingly and easily debunked race denial videos. One the people doing the debunking of those videos was Ryan Faulk of the YouTube channel The Alternative HypothesisRead more …

Why We Need Protectionism

1,152 words

It’s rather funny that the very people who go on about value being subjective act as if a “more productive” economy is objectively more valuable than all possible alternatives. Read more …

How the GOP Establishment Created the Dissident Right, & How the Democrats are Supplying its Second Wave

3,900 words

If we go back in time – not far, mind you, just barely over a decade ago – we see a political landscape that looks almost nothing like the one we have today. It is unbelievable how rapidly everything changed in such a short period of time. Read more …

Jordan Peterson’s Rejection of Identity Politics Allows White Ethnocide

1,298 words

Jordan Peterson’s rejection of identity politics makes no sense in the face of an establishment from left to right committed to the diversification of all Western nations through relentless immigration, which is fast reducing Whites to a minority, and is premised on the prohibition of White identity, while encouraging the inherently collectivist identities of non-Whites.

Against One-Dimensional Reading of History

Who built that? For what purpose?

2,216 words

After the recent debate on Andy Warski’s YouTube channel between Greg Johnson, the Academic Agent and others, the Academic Agent posted a series of videos arguing against Greg Johnson’s positions. In one of them, childishly titled Greg Johnson Doesn’t Understand History,[1] he tries to explain historical progress from a libertarian standpoint. Read more …

Libertarian Fake Psychology
& Other Thoughts on Recent YouTube Debates

Good and Evil

One of the most popular lines of argument against our recent arguments in defense of paternalism (see here, here and here) goes something like this: “If evil doesn’t meaningfully exist as a choice, then neither does good.”

Where does anyone get off with such nonsense? Read more …

Forced to be Free:
The Case for Paternalism

Rousseau

Jean-Jacques Rousseau

626 words

Spanish translation here

Paternalism means treating people like children. Children lack the maturity and wisdom to make their own decisions. Thus they need parents — or people playing the paternal role — to tell them what to do and, on occasion, to force them to do it.

Most people have no problem with paternalism when dealing with actual children, as well as the retarded, the senile, and the insane. Read more …

Bring Back Prohibition!

2,593 words

We all know the story.

Maybe we heard it in our high school history class.

Maybe we went through a libertarian phase where it was repeated ad nauseam as an argument for legalizing marijuana, cocaine, meth, and other hardcore substances—even if you dislike the substances themselves and would rather see them disappear from the face of the Earth.

Maybe we even repeated it ourselves!  Read more …

The Moral Poverty of Libertarianism

1,380 words

Murray Rothbard

There’s an old-school form of libertarianism that draws from the work of figures like Ludwig van Beethoven, Selma Hayek, and RuPaul (sorry, I mean to say Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich Hayek, and Ron Paul). This form of libertarianism works from a reasonably comprehensive picture of what it is to be a human being. Rather than thoroughly replacing homo sapiens with homo economicus, it simply focuses on addressing itself to the economic realm of life; and it proposes that people out to support a strongly libertarian order because such is in their best practical interests.  Read more …

Ruby Ridge, 25 Years On

Randy Weaver

2,328 words

August 22nd will be the 25th anniversary of what is popularly called “Ruby Ridge.” Most readers my age or older will remember Ruby Ridge well, but it is possible there are some younger individuals reading this without that same cognizance of the events.

The name refers to a mountaintop in Northern Idaho where — in 1992 — a man named Randy Weaver and his family ended up in a prolonged, armed standoff with the federal government that ended in the death of his wife and 14-year-old son.  Read more …

We are All Egoists – and Why That’s a Good Thing

Artwork by KEKM8

2,690 words

Many of those who end up exploring the political fringe – particularly on the Right – end up obsessed with various forms of what might loosely be called egocentricity. In those of a libertarian bent, this usually expresses itself as an obsession with contrasting honorable “individualism” against slavish “collectivism.” Read more …

The White Nationalist Case for Federal Marijuana Legalization

Almost half of the votes that the Libertarian Party has ever received in all presidential races put together went to the Johnson/Weed ticket in 2016.  Read more …

What the Alt Right Isn’t

4,568 words

dontdolist-resized-600In the early days of GRECE, the think tank of the Nouvelle Droite (New Right), which included such luminaries as Alain de Benoist and Pierre Vial, it was considered necessary to make a clean break with the failures of the past, totems that many on the Right still clung to. This new generation of writers, mostly in their 20s during the cultural revolution of ’68, felt that nostalgia for a lost cause — and there were several — stood in the way of their values finding political and cultural support from the majority of their countryman.

“We are, in a way, breaking a glass ceiling this year,” says Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee William Weld. It’s appropriate Weld uses a feminist metaphor.
