Episode 16: Against the Trad Dads

P.T. Carlo sits down with eternal Trad Dad, Nick B Steves, to discuss the economic and social difficulties of family formation and patriarchy in the modern West.

Debate me Ross Douthat

I mean why not? What do you really have to lose Ross? It would be an easy checkmark in your win column while also demonstrating your commitment to suppressing Right Wing threats to the Liberal order. I mean you're a Harvard-educated overmensch, a member of this nation's media elite who are selected based solely on their ability to produce the hottest and most insightful takes. Thus dealing with a provincial autodidact simpleton like myself should be child's play for someone of your cognitive abi

Douthat's Gambit

Illustrious Conservative New York Times thinkfluencer and friend of Thermidor Ross Douthat is certainly no stranger to bad ideas. He spent most of 2016 ripping off hot takes so bad they had to be compiled and documented in article form. Recently he's been on a column writing spree whose theme seems to have been "wacky and impractical ideas to save the republic with." And which consist mostly of, you guessed it, bold and audacious plans for new tax credits. However, Douthat's most recent column

Trouble in the European Diaspora

Recently here at Thermidor, we've hosted several fascinating pieces by Titus Cinninatus concerning the reality of Post-National models for European Identity. While he makes many excellent points, I do have some qualms with his ideas—which admittedly haven't been laid out in full detail yet though the basic outline is generally clear. While Titus is correct that the nation-state model being defended by most of the New Right-Wing Nationalism sweeping the globe is dying. If for no other reason tha

Thermidor Hatemail Vol.1

So recently I received my first legitimate piece of hatemail in Thermidor's inbox. Not a twitter attack, or a rant in the combox (we've already had plenty of those.) No, this person took the time to write me a 500-word email about how dumb I am. This is great! This is a major milestone in the life of our little site, we're gonna make it after all! I thoroughly enjoyed reading my new friend Alan Zivodar's thoughtful "critique" of my work. The fact that English obviously isn't his first language o

Episode 15: Geopolitical Rundown With Adam Garrie

P.T. Carlo sits down with Adam Garrie from The Duran to discuss Trump's foreign policy 180, Syrian safe zones, Russia, Erdogan's ambitions, Pan-Arab Nationalism and more. Download this episode here

Against The Trad Dads

A spectre is haunting the Right: the spectre of the Trad Dad. He lurks in the pages of conservative editorial rags, constantly upbraiding his charges for not dropping everything and getting married, moving to the suburbs and spawning 2.1 children (thus ensuring an acceptable replacement rate that would aid the American welfare state in perpetuating its existence.) If we are to take the rhetoric of the Trad Dads at face value, it would seem as though there is no problem for which bourgeois marria

Political Violence And The Superfluous Man

Political violence is rapidly replacing sportsball as America's favorite mass spectacle. Who wants to watch the Marlins play the Yankees when they can watch the SoCal antifa fight the "Proud boys"? I sure as hell know which one I'm going to be watching. But beyond the visceral thrill of streetfighting, there is a deeper appeal to the violence (which as of right now, is still very much in its infancy.) Put simply, as a certain postal service enthusiast and cabin dweller once said: The Industria
