Signal to Noise

Posted April 22, 2015 By John C Wright

The beautiful and talented Mrs Wright holds forth on an issue of timely import: http://www.ljagilamplighter.com/2015/04/22/superversive-blog-signal-to-noise/ Ever wonder why you are having such a hard time getting along with that once-dear friend who is now on the far side of the political Great Divide?

Do presently lose all desire for light

Posted April 22, 2015 By John C Wright

A man with a PhD in English holds forth on my hidden neofascism: “If you got John C. Wright drunk at the bar, you could get him to admit that he thinks transhumanism and black people are ugly for the same reason.” Actually, I am a teetotaler, and I always tell the truth, and I […]

Reviewer Praise for PARLIAMENT OF BEASTS AND BIRDS

Posted April 20, 2015 By John C Wright

NPR Upholds Morlock Journalistic Ethics

Posted April 20, 2015 By John C Wright

Well, well. The NPR weekend show ON THE MEDIA has joined the lynch mob, and done their level best to add hysteria and contumely and smother any trace of rational dialog in the little sortie of the Culture Wars known as Sad Puppies. They were paid for by my tax money, my dear readers, and […]

Harlan on the Hugo

Posted April 18, 2015 By John C Wright

No, he is not talking about Sad Puppies or Rapid Puppies. He is talking about the 1994 awards, which is roughly when the current Inner Ring of Morlocks started taking over. In other words, he is talking about the exact same people we are talking about, but he saw it coming way ahead of time, […]
