Quote of the Day

Posted August 23, 2015 By John C Wright

There are times when a man grows breathless at the sheer dizzying artistry of a genius of poetry. This is from a commenter named Steve over at the Vox Day website: http://voxday.blogspot.com/2015/08/they-proved-larry-right.html?showComment=1440400310261#c3182311945030057222 If we were to erect a monument to the spirit of our age, it wouldn’t be something sublime like the Eiffel Tower, St. […]

Time and Lies Wait for no Man

Posted August 19, 2015 By John C Wright

I just got an email from an SJW theologian telling me that it is impossible to hate a sin while loving a sinner whose sins are corrupting, lobotomizing, torturing, and killing him. His logic seemed to be that it is hypocrisy to love someone and yet to hate what hurts him. Of course, being self-lobotomized […]

Unleash the Correia!

Posted July 31, 2015 By John C Wright

Your humble servant is mentioned in the Guardian newspaper in the same breath as Vox Day as being so extremely badthink as to be beyond the pale, on the grounds that Jimes Hines once slandered me because I did not like my favorite children’s cartoon aimed as children being used as a vehicle to promote […]

Some of these links may be bad, but enough should be good to show the general trend. We are not dealing with a scientific theory, but a cult belief.

From the Pen of Larry Correia

Posted July 21, 2015 By John C Wright

A public service announcement (http://monsterhunternation.com/2015/07/20/sad-puppies-update-dont-forget-to-vote/) For once I agree with GRRM. Everybody should vote. The deadline is coming up fast. http://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/jul/20/george-rr-martin-hugo-awards-vote-game-of-thrones-science-fiction?CMP=share_btn_fb Since we wrote a novella worth of giant blog posts back and forth, GRRM knows damned good and well the Sad Puppies campaign wasn’t motivated by racism or sexism, but that doesn’t stop him […]

Compared to Eating a 2000-year-old Man

Posted July 10, 2015 By John C Wright

Since my last column was one of vexation, I thought I must say a word of admiration as well. I thought this was the cutest thing I have come across in quite a while, and surprisingly profound. This is from the pen of one Laura McAlister, who described herself as a Catholic, writer, tea-drinker, evangelist, […]

A Note on the Last Entry

Posted July 8, 2015 By John C Wright

Those of you who are wondering why anyone makes anime music videos about cutie-pie schoolgirls in afterschool tank battles simply do not understand the intricacies of Japanese pop culture, or American fanboyism of Japanese pop culture, known as Yankyotaku. Rather than explain, allow me to post more embedded links:

Tor and the Volunteer Thought Police Department

Posted June 24, 2015 By John C Wright

As noted before, a conflict of interest requires I recuse myself from expressing either support or opposition to the boycott of Tor, my publisher, urged on by my readers. Obviously I would prefer to retain the goodwill of both. Also obviously, I would prefer the matter be solved in a civil and professional fashion. To […]

The Three Laws of Morlocktics

Posted June 22, 2015 By John C Wright

Below is a comment I simply had to share: 39. Jack Aubrey They are as predictable as Asimov’s robots, whose three laws were programmed into them. 1. An SJW may not tell the Truth or, through inaction, allow the Truth to be told. 2. An SJW must obey orders given it by the Hive Mind, […]

Libertarian SF versus Establishment SF

Posted June 19, 2015 By John C Wright

The science fiction stories promoted by the establishment authors, libraries, schools and lit-critics has become so dreary, smug, self-righteous and politically correct as to be unreadable, save by those seeking a political commentary, not a space princess. If the establishment were content to kept its moist hands to itself, and write books to its taste […]
