Morlocks Eat Eloi

Posted April 12, 2017 By John C Wright

The state of sporting events in postmodern post rational America: Boy Identifies as Girl, Boy Competes as Girl, Boy Wins Everything. I am not making this up. I could not make up anything this wildly improbable. I am only a science fiction writer after all. http://www.courant.com/sports/high-schools/hc-hs-cromwell-track-andraya-yearwood-0407-20170406-story.html Note that the writer of the article with no […]

Chesterton on Butler

Posted April 1, 2017 By John C Wright

A pitch-perfection impersonation of Chesterton: I am awed. G.K. CHESTERTON ON AI RISK BY SCOTT ALEXANDER [An SSC reader working at an Oxford library stumbled across a previously undiscovered manuscript of G.K.

Posted March 20, 2017 By John C Wright

Some anime are stronger doing the “awesome” thing than doing the “that makes perfect sense and flows out of the preceding events in a clear and logical fashion” thing. Here is the theme song from an anime called Gurren Lagann. I recommend it to anyone who likes big action that gets bigger and bigger. The […]

Lost Works TITUS GROAN

Posted March 14, 2017 By John C Wright

I have boldly attempting a Jeffro Johnsonian feat of reviewing most or all of the authors in Lin Carter’s Ballatine Adult Fantasy series from the 1960’s.

Racism Simulator

Posted February 27, 2017 By John C Wright

If you are curious about who is saying that the laws should force everyone to wear the clothing, eat the food, and appreciate the art only of the same race as his ancestors, and to allow no Non-White to wear, eat, or appreciate any White clothing, food, or work of song, […]

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 […]
