The war on drugs is over, and drugs are the hands-down winner. Consider this: 50 years, $1 trillion dollars, and 50 million arrests in the war on drugs. And this is the result. Probably the most failed government policy in human history. This is the Afghanistan of domestic […]
By Matthew Sanger and Lewis Borck The genesis of our special section, “Anarchy and Archaeology,” was a symposium chaired by Matthew Sanger and Lewis Borck at the 80th annual SAA meeting in San Francisco. At that time and as the issue took shape, few expected the outcome of […]
By Pedro Gonzalez Chronicles The sound of screams replaced the music as a red Ford Escape slammed into the crowd, killing six people and wounding more than 60 in Waukesha, Wisconsin, on Nov. 21. Amid the bloodbath that evening were dead and dying victims as old as 81 […]
In fact, the UKHSA have given us a great gift, in that they finally provide separate case and severe outcome statistics for the triple-vaccinated and the double vaccinated, allowing us to compare rates across all three groups. They don’t do that themselves, of course, but no matter. We can use the raw numbers and rates […]
The COVID crisis has been utterly absurd from the start, and we – conspiracy theorists or Team Reality advocates (choose your point of view :-)) – have been on a wild goose chase all along, going down one rabbit hole after another… But the very justification of it all, a dubiously high lethality was never […]
“It is not simply scandalous that civil servants and advisers had fun while none of us could; it is scandalous that they were the ones who imposed those rules on us and are yet to apologise for them.” – Marie Le Conte
A brief excerpt taken from Book III of Volume I of The Constellation of Man. These metaphors, like others I use in the book, introduce realism concerning the novelty of our personal appearance on preconstructed stages of history and human culture, atop mind … Continue reading →
Two things amaze me, again and again, about American enthusiasm for rancor in politics. I. Vengeance welcomes and relishes any opportunities to humiliate or oppress one’s opponents, but shows no foresight of how this creates a precedent—a legal and cultural … Continue reading →
Ideas are neither benign, nor malignant, out of the context of a specific mentality. They depend entirely on our subjective mental context to affect us. As we respond to ideas in one way or another, as we adopt one idea … Continue reading →
by John GrauerholzThere are particular geographic locations that, for one inexplicable reason or another, seem peculiarly enchanting. Certain places resonate with certain personalities. There is, somewhere, a precise scenery that speaks to your soul. No matter how many times I visit Arizona, the city of Tucson has always been an endlessly enchanting landscape. Not a […]
by John Grauerholz Your medical record is something that will always be used against you. Your medical history only exists to record your physical humiliations. A doctor is not there to cure you, but to cause you as much consternation as possible. A physician’s role is not to heal a patient of your ilk, but […]
by John Grauerholz It is the future that persecutes us. The communitarians would have us break rocks all day long to bring forth a better world in the decades yet to come. Activists for the long-threatened paradise will not leave us alone – these advance-men will harass and hassle us whenever we attempt to enjoy ourselves […]
The writer presently known as Delicious Tacos is responsible for, among other things, a series of short confessional narratives that chronicle his agonizing ordeal with an anorectal abscess. That micro-memoir of butthole affliction – the "Ass Variations," as I have...
A few years ago I was interviewed by Greg Johnson of Counter-Currents Publishing and I banked off one of his questions to talk about some of the publishers who inspired me to start up Nine-Banded Books way back when. Here's...
The title cracks me up. I mean, it could have been something vaguely academic -- maybe Physiognomy Reconsidered, or Physiognomy: The Abandoned Science; or it could have been something suggesively literary, like Body and Essence or A Book by Its...
One might think that few people were more annoyed by the 2019 British general election than the conservative author and commentator Ed West. Here he was, preparing to publish his book Small Men on the Wrong Side of History (Little, … Continue reading →
The first time I met Andrew Sabisky we walked through central London for hours and neither his energy or my interest flagged. This is a rare combination. There are people who can talk for a long time and there are … Continue reading →
I began this decade in London, a physical wreck, mentally ruined, almost friendless and facing the grim realisation that not only was “creative writing” a titanically stupid course to pick but my writing sucked. As bad as all this was, … Continue reading →

A little while back I noted that much of what is called “critical race theory” is not the original material taught in law-schools but “heretical” offshoots. I couldn’t remember the Medium essay where I got that phrasing (and idea), and now I remember: Kerwin Fjøl’s On Pretentious Rhetoric.
Nearly four years ago I reviewed Heinlein’s “Starship Troopers”, and ended by noting I planned to compare his later “The Moon is a Harsh Mistress” or Ursula Le Guin’s “The Dispossessed”. I ultimately picked the former, figuring that would be immediately comparable to Troopers while the latter would mostly be of interest compared to the […]
Robert Trivers was the inspiration for E. O. Wilson to write “Sociobiology”, and whether because of Wilson drawing away the flak or Trivers’ own radical leftist politics (he worked with Huey Newton, to whom this book is dedicated) he was never as much a figure of controversy. Reading his Folly of Fools, it quickly became […]
Like the uncollapsed quantum state holding Schrodinger’s cat in a state of simultaneous life and death, whether a school is “teaching critical race theory” or not seems to depend entirely on whether the inquiring person wants them to. Are you anti-CRT? Then, you may rest assured, American schools most certainly aren’t teaching CRT. (If you […]
Wisdom has built her house; she has set up its seven pillars. — Proverbs 9:1 T. E. Lawrence is the Lawrence, of Arabia, and Seven Pillars of Wisdom is his autobiographical account of his time spent serving in the British and Arab armies during World War One. If you’ve seen the movie, you’ve got the […]
Scott Anderson’s Lawrence in Arabia is, quite obviously, about the famous T. E. Lawrence “of” Arabia. The book ranges significantly wider than Lawrence’s personal account, however, shifting between the perspectives of Ottoman officials, German spies, American spies, Zionist spies, and of course British spies. I read this book concurrently with The Berlin-Baghdad Express, so my […]
Formerly honest and unbiased vote counting is another institution infiltrated with and taken over by leftist activists. Leftists think deception is virtuous to reach higher goals. Dishonest partisan election officials “cured” problem ballots. This must be exposed, opposed, reversed. Continue at Sincerity.netWait, there is more! This article continues!

Afghanistan is not Germany nor Japan. Afghanistan cannot be rebuilt like these nations were rebuilt after world war II, with the Marshall plan. To posit insurmountable cultural, religious ethnic differences is taboo to the point that Trillions (one million million dollars) are spent for impossible fantasies of nation building, to turn Afghans into Americans, Germans, […]
Misrepresentation and lack of full disclosure can be serious misdeeds, before the law. Yet leftist’s incessant lies of omission, required by media ethics codes and police gag orders, are tolerated. Even Media and politicians rarely tell outright lies (lies of commission). They spread misinformation by strategically omitting specific relevant details. Deceptively they fail to disclose […]
THE PRODIGAL SON. By Walter Higgins. It was Sunday evening, about nine o’clock, in the year nineteen hundred and anything you like. The Vicar, his wife and family, together with Sir Jasper Claddon, their intimate and wealthy friend, bad just returned from church, and were about to settle down for supper. “John,” said the Vicar’s […]
Haslingden Gazette You deserve the hearty thanks of all Socialists for the courageous way in which you are allowing a discussion of the differences we have with Christians. Without apology, I will give your readers some reasons why we reject Christianity. We reject Christianity because it is the evangel of self-abnegation, instead of self-realisation; self-obliteration […]
