Death from the Deep

Posted August 19, 2017 By John C Wright

A question: What is your favorite Shadow story Mr. Wright? I’m asking because this story is making me depressed and I need a good read.

While I like THE SHADOW’S SHADOW and GRAY FIST and DEATH TOWER as the best written stories, this is my favorite radio play.  Read the remainder of this entry »

On Charlottesville

Posted August 19, 2017 By John C Wright

Much emotion, many lies, and few facts surround this story, so it behooves the candid reader to look at the matter with dispassionate eyes, and reach conclusions other than what the mainstream media have ordained for you.

In recent news, when the town of Charlottesville announced the removal of a statue of Confederate general and war hero Robert E. Lee, from Lee Park, renamed Emancipation Park. An Obama supporter involved in the Occupy Wall Street movement named Jason Kessler organized a rally called ‘Unite the Right’ to protest the removal of the statue. Internet personalities, members of the Young Republicans and members of a 2016 white identity politics movement called the ‘Alt-Right’, were slated to be present and speak.

Not Tired of Winning Yet XXVII

Posted August 15, 2017 By John C Wright

Deregulation continues apace. Even I, who am a zealous deregulation fan, had no idea of the lopsided insanity of twenty and thirty year waiting periods from half a dozen agencies.

Below is a press conference that starts awesome, and then explodes into the yowling frenzy of newsmen eating their own entrails out of spite and hatred for all living things, while Mr. Trump tries to talk like a grown up to the maniacs having an emotional breakdown.

Last Crusade: The View from Nowhere

Posted August 13, 2017 By John C Wright

If you were the Devil’s Advocate, you would advise the Father of Lies to silence any opposition unheard, because even a soft, still voice of truth is deadly to the hopes of the Devil’s Party.

One way to silence opposition is to claim that matters of private opinion are neither right nor wrong, true nor false, but questions of taste and personal conviction, which must be kept private. The accusation here is that any dissent from established opinion acts to impose private religious conviction on the unwilling, merely by speaking.

The accusation here is that to ask a question is to enact an inquisition.

This is a type of strawman argument, since the truth a speaker supports is always supported on the grounds that it is truth, never on the grounds that the speaker who speaks it is convinced.

Of course he is convinced: the question is whether his reasons for being convinced are sound.

And yet this, out of all weak reasons to silence debate, is the one to which the conservative movement has proven itself unable and unwilling to laugh to scorn.

Dynamite Comics just put out a new version of The Shadow. The Shadow is and has been my most deeply beloved character of my imaginative life.

They turned him into an SJW who lectures villains on their white privilege.

I am not making this up.

Dragon Awards!

Posted August 11, 2017 By John C Wright

Dragon Con is coming, and the means the Dragon Award.

The Dragon Award Ballot for 2017 can be found at this link. Anyone can vote. All you need to do is love the genre.

The Dragon award is a physically beautiful looking statuette, each one unique. I have one sitting on my mantle.

I have been honored with a nomination for Swan Knight’s Son , which is one of my favorite works of anything I’ve written.

But the ironic humor of the Fates decided to put me up against my wife’s book, Rachel and the Many Splendored Dreamland by L. Jagi Lamplighter.

You may or may not be aware that Marvel Comics has grown completely corrupt in the last few years, and now takes its primary (and secondary, and all other) mission not to be to tell entertaining visually arresting stories, but instead to preach, foment, promote and propagandize the erratic racist beliefs of the filthy and neurotic Leftwing lunatics the Men of the West call Morlocks, the Dwarf kindred call Krapsaks, but the Elves of Utterbole call SJWs.

They are not in it for the money. They want to lose money. They are not in it for the fame. They want their names to be forgotten. They are true believers. They want to love and serve the idols of SJWs. They cannot build idols of their own of course. All they can do is take heroes we idolize and give their names and appearance to bland minority doppelgangers.

Marvel has gone the way of the Gaming Press, and followed the Hugo Awards into the yawning Azathothian abyss of utterly stupid irrelevance, nonsense, and blithering anti-West, anti-White, anti-American, anti-Christian postmodern pathological narcissism. They have been absorbed into the anti-Life equation.

In Praise of Beale

Posted August 8, 2017 By John C Wright

Some of my readers are apparently wondering how deeply I hate, loathe, and despise Vox Day, on the grounds that I sharply disagree with one idea he has.

If I understand his position, he believes race defines culture. I believe religion defines culture. Hence our view of human nature is different, hence the priorities we place on different political policies also differ.

This question of how much to hate a man who holds a different opinion on public issues is a Leftist question, since Leftist dogma states (1) no honest disagreement is ever possible between two men; (2) all disagreements, no matter how mild, are the sign and the effect of irremovable and profound hatred; (3) only profound hatred causes disagreement.

It is on these grounds that Leftist routinely characterize any lack of total and unthinking loyalty to their ideas as “hate speech” hence as an excuse for rioting (c.f. Milo at Berkeley).

As with all their dogmas, merely to state them in clear terms shows them to refute themselves.

(If to disagree with hate-speech laws is itself hate speech, by the same token so is support for such laws, or support for any proposition whatsoever, as it must disagree with someone, somewhere.)

The concept that gentlemen never have honest disagreements is risible.

Yes, there are points were my public statements disagree with the public statements of Vox Day. He is the Darkest of Dark Lords. I am the most severe of the Grand Inquisitors. We agree on most things. Who expects we should agree on all?

Perfect uniformity of thought is neither desirable nor possible, except among the most debased imaginable population of cringing helots, fearful of the scowl of Big Brother.

I confine my remark to helots, to state-owned slaves, because personal slaves, such as those the Romans used to instruct young scholars, were given more liberty to speak and contradict their masters than political correctness allows.

In any case, I wanted to take the opportunity to calm frazzled nerves, and to emphasize in how few matters Vox Day and I disagree.

First, we both voted for Chuck Tingle for a Hugo Award. Love is real!
