Minimum Wage, Federalism, and Regional Standard of Living

In my adult life, I’ve lived in Charlotte, NC; Chattanooga, TN; and Jackson, MS. (And a very brief stint in the Mansfield area, and I was actually born around Biloxi, though I don’t have any relatives there.) They are all three very different from each other. Especially Jackson. I really don’t think my ROK writing … Continue reading Minimum Wage, Federalism, and Regional Standard of Living

Elvis the First Sex Pop Star

“The show is in the audience, not on the stage.” — Elvis Presley Today is the fortieth anniversary of Elvis’s death. He’s one of those artists I used to absolutely hate but more recently have become obsessed over. Was he a secret genius or a talentless hack in the right place at the right time? … Continue reading Elvis the First Sex Pop Star

Donald Trump and the Alt Right

[Again, let me reiterate that I am not and have never been alt right. While I believe that every person has a right to take pride in his ethnic heritage, I also am opposed to racial identity politics because it glosses over economic and other social issues in favor of the most superficial traits. All … Continue reading Donald Trump and the Alt Right

Blair’s Take on Charlottesville

Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and various political has-beens like Mike Huckabee condemn white supremacy, hatred and domestic terrorism. I agree with them. However, none of that is what happened in Charlottesville. I considered going to Charlottesville, since it’s only seven hours away. My schedule wouldn’t quite fit, and I didn’t have anyone to go with, … Continue reading Blair’s Take on Charlottesville

I Want to Go to Korea

We haven’t had a war that American security was contingent on since 1812. The Civil War was obviously a farce on both sides. The wars over Cuba and Mexico were superfluous. In WWI, Germany had promised Mexico that they would give them southwest Mexico, but the threat was probably empty. We only fought WWII in … Continue reading I Want to Go to Korea

Islam as Proto-Marxism

The only truly anti-racist religion is Islam. In Islam, there is no race (aside from some politically incorrect things Mohammed said about Ethiopian slaves being worth half as much as other slaves). There is only ideology. You are either a true comrade​ of the party or an enemy to be tortured in the gulag. Many … Continue reading Islam as Proto-Marxism

Thoughts on 2020 (Since That’s a News Story for Some Reason)

Out of all the bits of unintentional comedy that has come from Trump winning the election, probably my favorite is all the celebrities — using the term loosely — who think they could be the next president. Because if Trump is a self-absorbed total moron, then anyone can do it with the right name recognition. … Continue reading Thoughts on 2020 (Since That’s a News Story for Some Reason)

America the Losers

People in the ‘Sphere talk about how girls who like geek culture are a tiny minority and only want male attention. These people must have never met a girl. Nearly every girl I talk to is obsessed with the latest superhero vomit, Harry Potter, Dr Who, or video games. It turns out that women are … Continue reading America the Losers

Dealing With Disappointment

I won’t weigh you down with a sob story, but suffice it to say that I had one of the worst childhoods I have ever heard of. My parents did not seem to even notice that I skipped over the whole emotion-social development phase from five to fifteen. The first several years of adulthood were … Continue reading Dealing With Disappointment

Catholicism is for Fags

My father went to New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in the 80s. This was back when NOLA was still NOLA and you got this weird mix of total hedonism, the occult, and conservative Christian fervor. NOLA was one of the first hubs for the gay community. Every year they would have a parade and crown … Continue reading Catholicism is for Fags

The Blog Will Resume

I’ve decided to start writing again on this website. I don’t know how frequently. I guess I need an outlet. If I only have thirty regular readers, that will be enough. Call it a compulsion. I suffer a great amount of existential boredom in life and need a creative outlet. Most of what I write … Continue reading The Blog Will Resume

All Poetry and Such is available for Free; Thoughts on the Manosphere

Hello friends. I’ve made all my formerly Amazon-published writings for free on Scribd. https://www.scribd.com/document/327347697/BN-Complete-The-Death-of-Ideology-Another-Round-on-the-House-And-Additions They are no longer on Amazon. You can reprint, republish, and distribute them as much as you like without paying me anything so long as you don’t screw with my original intentions. Kind of vague, but I think it’s clear what … Continue reading All Poetry and Such is available for Free; Thoughts on the Manosphere

New Poetry Book Is Ready To Purchase (And Some Final Thoughts On Quitting)

I’ve compiled the various poems I’ve written since my last volume (plus just a few I had written in college and lost). It’s called A Second Round On The House. It’s a little shorter than I would like, although not nearly as much as I thought it would be. While it covers much the same subject … Continue reading New Poetry Book Is Ready To Purchase (And Some Final Thoughts On Quitting) →

Quitting The Manosphere

I’m quitting the Manosphere and will very likely not return, because it’s been exacerbating some personal demons in my life for the last several months, which I won’t go into detail here with a sob story. It would seem like this is a product of the fiasco at AmRen, but that would be a wrong assumption. … Continue reading Quitting The Manosphere →

In Defense Of The Crusades

This is a guest post by Vincent Law. It was originally published on Atavistic Intelligentsia. Of all things, why defend the Crusades? Because, there is nothing that undermines Tradition more than historical revisionism. A people dispossessed and ashamed of their own history are susceptible to suggestions from all quarters. You are not the proud descendents … Continue reading In Defense Of The Crusades →

How To (Not) Argue With A Leftist

The above short video isn’t particularly worth watching. An willfully ugly woman who uses feminism to avoid responsibility for why she’s so miserable and lonely mocks a group of people who try to reason with her. Supposedly she was acting flippantly after a man had committed suicide, but the video is difficult to understand. The … Continue reading How To (Not) Argue With A Leftist →

Why The Manosphere Will Win And The MRAs Will Lose Despite Whichever May Be Right

Before I ever came across the Red Pill, I was vaguely familiar with the men’s rights activists. And although I definitely agreed with many of their complaints, I had no interest in joining them before even investigating them. Why are men naturally put off by the MRAs? Masculine Solutions Because men are fixers. We want … Continue reading Why The Manosphere Will Win And The MRAs Will Lose Despite Whichever May Be Right →

Why ROQ Failed: Lessons We Can All Learn From

I would just ignore this altogether, but I think on some level I owe it to the 35 or so loyal subscribers I’ve got. It really doesn’t deserve it’s own post, but here we go anyway. If nothing else, I’ve been dry on content lately, so it’s given me something to write. Remember that time … Continue reading Why ROQ Failed: Lessons We Can All Learn From →

Friday’s Praise: Catholic High School Enforcing Catholic Morality

A Catholic high school in Nowhere, Pennsylvania is requiring prom dresses to be pre-approved before girls can purchase their tickets. While they seem to be doing this on short notice, ultimately it is a step in the right direction. Or rather, a step back in the right direction. School Days I remember homecoming week in high school and … Continue reading Friday’s Praise: Catholic High School Enforcing Catholic Morality →

The Colony Of Christianity

I knew a guy who was homeschooled, went to semi-fundamentalist Bryan College, and then went to a Baptist seminary. I bet he’s a failure at ministry, because he’s never lived in the secular world. A Major Reason Why So Many Pastors Are Worthless I’ve found the best pastors had years of secular work before becoming a … Continue reading The Colony Of Christianity →
