The Fordist Academic

Scathing assessment of prevailing academia by Binoy Kampmark, well and truly caught between a rock and a hard place. On the one hand, higher education institutions are encouraged to be functional to market requirements (ROI, translational research); while on the other hand, so much of the university is given over to ideological indoctrination, activism masquerading as disinterested inquiry—i.e.…

Who commits violent antisemitic attacks in Europe? Hint: it’s not neo-Nazis

Philippe Lemoine’s close-grained analysis on the topic also understood by others such as Melanie Phillips. Along with Douglas Murray’s latest article inevitably all this points to a rather bleak outlook for UK Jewry. My brief thoughts on the matter of the regressive’s complicity with Islamofascism outlined here. authoritarianismChristopher Hitchensdouglas murrayilliberalismislamofascismJew hatredMelanie PhillipsNazismPhilippe Lemoineregressive left

Soldiers of Reason

I’m very much looking forward to a great live bill tomorrow comprising Jordan Peterson and Bret Weinstein. I’m also hoping that my Gad Father T-shirt arrives in time for me to wear for the event. 12 Rules for Lifebret weinsteinclassical liberalismDave Rubinfree speechgad saadJordan PetersonliberalityOstrich Parasitic Syndromeregressive left

Cultural “Appropriation”

A misnomer if ever there was one. It’s the time of year (Halloween) when the ritualized faux outrage, the pearl-clutching virtue-signaling, often emanating from naively rationalistic and vain “Chardonnay socialists”, reaches fever-pitch. Conceptually lazy and illiterate concerning complexity and the evolutionary dynamic of spontaneous order (i.e. culture, for better or worse), they are doomed (pardon the…

There’s No Such Thing as Islamophobia: Critique of religion is a fundamental Western right, not an illness

Superb analysis in City Journal by Pascal Bruckner outlining the fuckwittery that the regressive left is so complicitous with, and sadly, a disproportionate number of over-compensating virtue-signaling Jews buy into this dhimmitude under the guise of anti-Zionism. Also tiresome is when these nihilistically delusional dhimmies claim that there is no connection between Islam and terror. As…

Explaining Postmodernism

The very excellent Stephen Hicks whom I had the pleasure of meeting earlier this year has made his book freely available online. I’m very much looking forward to Stephen’s chat with Jordan Peterson who has repeatedly referred to Stephen’s book in his various podcasts. constructivismcultural marxismJordan Petersonpost modernismregressive leftrelativismstephen hicks

When Reason Goes On Holiday

Neven Sesardic‘s recent book has really set tongues a wagging (to put it mildly), a book that is freely available here. Below one can hear Nevan talk on the topic. The discussion is all very disconcerting as Joseph Bottum points out in his review. History of PhilosophyJoseph BottumMartin HeideggerNeven SesardicPhilosophyPoliticsReasonregressive left
