Murder Incorporated Denies Wrongdoing

Posted July 23, 2015 By John C Wright

On the radio, one of the top-of-the-hour news blurbs was that Planned Parenthood dismissed all allegations from an unnamed video as being fraudulent, an attempt to scare women and hinder their reproductive rights.

And now back to the real world

Posted June 20, 2015 By John C Wright

The Brazen Author of the Book of Gold

Posted May 29, 2015 By John C Wright

I have written on this topic erenow, but it bears repeating. A fine reader wrote it with a kind compliment. He was thanking me for his new scarf. He said I had dashed his hopes of being a writer by my undue excess of skill, that his writing was so inferior in comparison, so he […]

Guest Editorial: Social Justice as a Sacrament

Posted May 19, 2015 By John C Wright

A commenter named Sherwood Family over at Vox Day said something so well, and so truthful, that it bears repeating in full: “Social Justice” is a religion. It has saints, dogma, and sacraments. It also has backsliders and apostates. As any religion knows, apostates must be dealt with lest they lead the rest of the […]
