Constitutionalism, Capitalism, and Christianity

Posted November 23, 2017 By John C Wright

Here are some of my thoughts about Thanksgiving. I am liberally plagiarizing myself from other articles I have written in the past on the topic, so if you see a paragraph you saw before elsewhere, that is why:

Thanksgiving is nearly a perfect holiday, since by rights it combines the awesome and uplifting act of humiliating oneself to God in thanks for the bounties and blessings poured onto this nation by Providence, with the tradition of gathering the family and clan together in a feast of sumptuous proportions, a feast meant to remind us of the wealth the hard work of our fathers created for us, and to remind us of the hard-won liberty and wise laws protecting our rights to enjoy that wealth and worship that God.

Thanksgiving sums up the three greatest blessings of America.

Our political system is a voluntary mutual compact of limited and equal government enshrining individual rights; our economic system is a free market protecting individual property; and our religious heritage is one of the liberty of the individual conscience, a principle found in only faith in the world.

The 3 Cs of America are Constitutionalism, Capitalism, and Christianity. At Thanksgiving, we give thanks for all three at once.

Darker than You Think

Posted November 22, 2017 By John C Wright

This is Sargon, also known as Carl Benjamin, liberal political commentator highly critical of the socialist social justice warriors infecting the left. Because he is honest and decent, he finds himself aiding and comforting the Conservative right more often than not.

This is a particularly egregious example of an SJW inquisition at work. Read the remainder of this entry »

Escaping Objectivism

Posted November 16, 2017 By John C Wright

My latest interview on Red Pill Religion. A lukewarm supporter of Ayn Rand (me) boldly defends her honor against the unmerciful attacks of Max Kolbe, the dread and dreaded basher of atheists, whom the elves call Alvalardagnir, the Bane of the Godless. Then I attacker her a bit myself. Sad when a powerful intellect goes awry.

Last Crusade: War with the Phantoms

Posted November 13, 2017 By John C Wright

We live in an age obsessed with glass ceilings, dog whistles, and micro-aggressions.

Note what these have in common.

The glass ceiling is the alleged invisible barrier which prevents women from being promoted into the positions of top management and bars the from the highest levels of power.

Dog whistles are the alleged inaudible messages sent as code from one racist to another over public airwaves to coordinate and perpetuate their continued oppression of blacks.

Micro-aggressions are the alleged impalpable assaults subtly hidden as thoughtless comments or discourteous gestures.

Micro-aggressions are just like various other forms of assault and battery, such as being lacerated, stabbed, drowned, bloodied, bruised, bludgeoned, or beaten senseless, except that these aggressions are so microscopically slight and insignificant that no one, not even the alleged perpetrator, can detect them. Even the alleged victims will not feel them unless told and trained to do so.

For example, asking someone where he is from is a micro-aggression, as this betrays an unconscious racism, which oppresses the weak. Using the pronoun “he” when grammar calls for it also oppresses the weak. As of the current news cycle, taking tests at a college, doing math, or having a daughter who wears a Disney princess costume of a Polynesian at Halloween, are all forms of oppression.

What these have in common is that all are phantoms.

New program is up. You can hear my dulcet tones as I bark one syllable questions during a theist-atheist cross examination:
