Rules for Right-wing Radicals

Charlottesville was an unmitigated shitshow. A woman was killed — whether her death was an accident or the result of an act of political terrorism is of little consequence for the public image of the Alt-Right. The legacy media is still largely in control of the narrative, and they are hardly interested in reporting objectively on so-called white supremacists. The Charlottesville debacle will inevitably prove to be one of two things: The event that spelled the end of the Alt-Right as we know it

Against Realism

The future belongs to those bold enough to dream. Undoubtedly, some of you are shaking your heads at this platitude. You've probably heard some liberal say it, and that's partly why you're so skeptical. The real reason is probably something else; the brain chemistry that lends itself to conservative and right-wing beliefs is innately... conservative. It is skeptical of radical change and it has an instinctive fear of the unknown. There is probably good reason for this, I'm sure. It's not hard to

Chickens Come Home To Roost In Sweden

The Bible says the wages of sin is death. Sweden is guilty of the gravest of all sins; Pride. And today, for the first time, the whole nation was made to pay. I first learned about what had happened in Stockholm by accident, around 4 PM; I was out on a date, enjoying one of the first days of great spring weather in the park. A father walked by with his daughter (she was perhaps 4 years old). I overheard him explaining to her—in that cold, sociopathic manner only a Scandinavian is capable of—that

Hobby Radicalism

Modern communists are limp-wristed sissies. That is one way to interpret the photograph of a gathering of young Swedish communists making the rounds on Twitter currently. But it is not the lack of muscle which is most striking about this truly depressing image. They raise their fists—a sign of rebellion, resistance, and loyalty to the Sacred Cause of Revolutionary Communism—but most of them can barely muster the energy to raise it above their heads, let alone clench their fists properly. None o

A Home for the People

The members of the English-speaking world suffer from many defects. In particular, they seem to be painfully unaware of what goes on in Continental Europe and Scandinavia (not to mention the rest of the world). Worst of all are the Americans, whose ignorance of matters international seems to know no bounds. The frequency with which they confuse Sweden and Switzerland leads one to question if they’ve ever seen a world map before. I can stand being mistaken for a Swiss; Switzerland, after all, is

Involuntary Consent

The other day I had a conversation with a libertarian friend of mine, during which we briefly touched on some of the ideas I will be discussing in this essay. That's partially why I decided to write about this subject in the first place; another part of it is that I actually was a libertarian for quite some time, and beyond "I don't believe it to be true anymore" I've never really properly explained to anyone why I eventually rejected the ideology. This is going to be both an attempt to critique

Up in Smoke

Should you ever doubt which ideology reigns supreme in Western society, look no further than the legalization debate. The dominating narrative is thoroughly liberal; drug use is a “victimless crime” and those who oppose legalization are dumb (and probably evil) reactionaries who simply didn’t get the memo about bodily autonomy. The opposition, of course, cowers before the legalizers, trying desperately to prove their innocence. In this article, I shall do no such thing. I readily admit to being
