Plagues, Power and Parasite

Mason Masters

Our world has spun out of control. Nazis are supposedly coming into office across the world. Climate change is apparently throwing weather systems out of equilibrium. The most recent shock to the system is COVID-19 caused by a novel coronavirus that crossed from bats into humans. Scientists and doomers have been waiting for this Next Big One and it looks like this is might actually be it

The River

UMAROBANE

In recent years, it seems Western philosophy has finally come full circle, as the only truly original thinkers today are successors to the progressive tradition who have taken its logic to its ultimate conclusion – if all traditions must be abolished, why not abolish the tradition of abolishing traditions? Here we find Curtis Yarvin, heir to […]

10 Relationship Lessons From “Marriage Story”

Mason Masters

The Netflix production Marriage Story, directed by Noah Baumbach, is meant to be a serious movie and a sign of going steady. The company hoped it would pull in awards and make the streaming service seem a little more respectable. It’s about a woman and a man who meet, fall in love and have a wonderful life together as they raise their child (that all happens before the opening credits). Unfortunately the movie comes across as needy.

There is No Left. There is No Right.

Alexander Blum

“Now what’s the next step of your master plan?” “Crashing this plane…with no survivors!” 2020 has been a year of indisputable reckoning as what was supposed to be the age of either democratic socialism or right-wing populism has morphed into pandemic and institutional collapse. A major bailout of big business, like 2008, has just passed, […]

Based or Woke? A Review of Watchmen (2019)

Mason Masters

Humanity is obsessed with the past. On the one hand, people talk constantly about the need to escape it, and on the other hand, deep down lies the realization that they will never outrun it. One can’t be a good victim without remembering the past, and yet there is an urgency to pushing forward into the future. The question becomes how to reconcile the past and the future into a workable present.

Systems and Life of Faith Regarding Void Eternal

Amadeus G

The Void, the universe, is God, and the holiest of all men that stand before us, in our modern times are those who are capable of interpreting the Void. Those who fall beneath this category are the philosophic, the artistic, the scientific, and the traditional holy men.

The Secret History of Sube’etei Bahadur – Master of the Mongol Military

Casey Ball

In the span of history no other nation or empire have come close to the total contiguous global hegemony of the Mongol Empire. The Mongols burst forth from the Asian Steppe in the 13th Century and conquered the Eurasian continent from Hungary to Korea, and from the Arctic Circle to the South China Sea within a span of 60 years. However, Chinggiz Khan did not step foot in either Hungary, Korea, or many of the other nations subjugated to Mongol rule. Sube’etei was the man who drove the Mongol ordu (“horde” in English) and defined the limits of the empire.

The Mystery of Mara

Oliver Noster

There is a certain kind of snobbish teen who is very eager to tell you that all you see is shadows. He quotes Baudrillard: “We live in a world where there is more and more information, and less and less meaning.” If he has the confidence, he might try to quote Derrida. He’ll denounce atheists for being dogmatic killjoys, but really he has more in common with them than anyone else. The only difference is that the atheist will offer to turn on the lights, but this kid is still trying to invent the light switch.
