The Downfall of the West

Posted January 13, 2016 By John C Wright

The must-read column for today is here: http://voxday.blogspot.com/2016/01/musings-on-immigration-part-i.html This is one of the most insightful columns on the immigrant disaster in Europe I have yet seen, and it offers an explanation on two points otherwise inexplicable to me: First, the appeal of Islam was made clear to me. I don’t know if this is the […]

The Unreality Principle

Posted December 8, 2015 By John C Wright

A reprint of a column from 2006. I thought it worth posting again, because Mark Levin read an column of mine using the phrase ‘the unreality principle’ on the air, but not an explanation of what it means. I give that explanation here.  *  *  *  * Do they want to live? This is from […]

Pat and the Fourth Estate

Posted December 6, 2015 By John C Wright

An excellent and insightful piece by Pat Buchanan: http://www.unz.com/pbuchanan/why-liberal-media-hate-trump/ In the feudal era there were the “three estates” — the clergy, the nobility and the commons. The first and second were eradicated in Robespierre’s Revolution. But in the 18th and 19th century, Edmund Burke and Thomas Carlyle identified what the latter called a “stupendous Fourth […]

The Four C’s

Posted November 20, 2015 By John C Wright

I am as agog and aghast as all honest onlookers, psychopathologists, and men of good will at the inability of the Progressives to perceive even the slightest thistledown-weight of danger from the blood-sopped cave-dwelling death-cultists of Mohammed, who have been at war with Christianity since the days of Mohammed, and whose Holy Book, the Al Koran, commands […]

Postnihilism

Posted November 5, 2015 By John C Wright

  Is there an additional step or stage further down the Morlock can descend? I suggest that there is not. Nihilism is the philosophical belief that no universal truth exists, and thus philosophy as such is in vain.

Posted October 27, 2015 By John C Wright

Sci Phi Mag needs Us! (Shanghaied by Jagi)

Posted October 12, 2015 By John C Wright

Hey folks, Jagi, here.  I learned this morning that Sci Phi Journal needs help. For those who don’t know it, Sci Phi Journal offers science fiction stories that have a philosophy to them. It is one of the few periodicals offering a place to the kind of stories that Sad Puppies stood for…in fact, it […]
