Not Tired of Winning Yet XIII

Posted March 20, 2017 By John C Wright

The Hill reports Corporation for Public Broadcasting would be privatized, while the National Endowment for the Arts and National Endowment for the Humanities would be eliminated entirely. My comment: never have I heard such good news. As a man who worked, not for one bankrupt news organization, but for two,  the knowledge that part of […]

Lazarus and Dracula

Posted March 14, 2017 By John C Wright

SAMURAI JACK is back, and is just as good as you remember it. If you have a cable provider, you can watch it here: http://www.adultswim.com/videos/samurai-jack/xcii/ Obviously there is another voice for Aku, since the great Mako has passed away, but the look, the action, the energy, the humor, it is all there, all just as […]

Rational and Magical Thinking

Posted March 10, 2017 By John C Wright

Here is the difference between arguing with a rational atheist and arguing with a Leftist: suppose for the sake of argument that you penned a column describing the psychology of Leftism as involving a neurotic (if not deliberate) confusion between symbol and object, commonly known as “magical thinking.” Magical thinking is thinking where the believers […]

Pulp Dames v Playboy Bunnies

Posted March 9, 2017 By John C Wright

I have been posting some images from my collection of pulp covers of late, in honor of the ongoing renaissance of pulp. The pulp renaissance is part of a long overdue rediscovery in the related genres of space opera, boy’s SF, superversive SF, Sad Puppy SF, and all the genres rebelling against the gooey gray postrational […]

Not Tired of Winning Yet XII

Posted February 24, 2017 By John C Wright

Have you noticed how much news reporting these days is nothing but the news talking about the news? It is as if the press has been taken entirely over by neurotic and self-absorbed narcissists. Case in point: The White House barred a number of news outlets from covering Sean Spicer’s Q&A session on Friday afternoon.  Spicer […]

Dialog on Beauty

Posted February 24, 2017 By John C Wright

A reader asked me what I thought was a fascinating question. As part of our general education classes, one of the fields I need to take a class in is Race and Diversity. I didn’t need to be a prophet to know this class was going to be pseudo-Marxist crap. So I chose the one […]

Not Tired of Winning Yet XI

Posted February 23, 2017 By John C Wright

First things first. Jack is Back: Second, there is this: Trump rescinds the Obama rule allowing perverts free entry into schoolgirl’s bathrooms and locker rooms. The Leftwing, predictably, goes nuts, rolls on the ground in an epileptic fit, arms and legs jerking, frothing at the mouth, vomiting and rolling in the spew puddle. Normally, I would advise […]

Milo and the Bookstore

Posted February 22, 2017 By John C Wright

The libels against Milo Yiannopoulos continue, but the still, small voice of truth is speaking also. Those who were deceived innocently at first now have no excuse. Within hours, an unedited version of the year-old conversation used to libel Milo was available, as were leaks from the press revealing that the attack was deliberate, coordinated, […]

Homeschooling with the Great Books

Posted February 22, 2017 By John C Wright

Part of an ongoing conversation in which I was not involved (I was not the one asked the question) but which bears repeating: Do you have any advice for a man such as myself who was raised in the modern public education system but wants to raise his children with a classical education? Another reader […]

Milo Libeled, Fools Fooled

Posted February 21, 2017 By John C Wright

The whole thing is a libel. Hope Milo sues them into bankruptcy. Found this interesting tidbit not long after hearing about the smear attack: An anonymous journalist on 4chan posted a detailed warning of the media’s upcoming pedo-smear attack on Milo one day before it happened. An image of the 4chan post can be found […]
