Prospects for a better society

      I felt very miffed when I heard about the arrest of Julian Assange from the Ecuadorian embassy. The disgusting persecution of journalists who divulge war crimes is something that makes me deeply uneasy. There are a lot of things that gets my anger flowing freely these days but none more than brazen lying. The idea that the United States is a democracy or even that we have human rights as one of our values, is enraging to me. How dare those of us who make it impossible for most of the world to live fulfilling lives say … Continue reading Prospects for a better society

Protecting Venezuela: Russia and China step up

It is no secret that the United States of America has a history of overthrowing democratically elected governments and replacing them with dictators who serve U.S interests. This colonial mentality is the mentality of Empire and is disgusting. The coup that is being done in Venezuela hasn’t been easy though, due to the support of enemies of the United States. China and Russia, both stepped up in order to parry United States interests in South America. Both have their interests to protect and it isn’t through altruism that they act. Russia is protecting their long term ally, and they are … Continue reading Protecting Venezuela: Russia and China step up

Kingdom Hearts Retrospective: Pt 1

I just finished Kingdom Hearts 3 and am feeling so many complicated feelings. I am happy to finally get the 3rd installment I have been waiting for most of my adult life for. I remember playing the first game significantly after it came out due to not having a ps2 till later. I was able to buy the second game at launch and liked it a lot. Looking back on all the games I’ve played I realized that I have a lot to say and want to write. So here it goes, a part review and part retrospective of every … Continue reading Kingdom Hearts Retrospective: Pt 1

Calvalcade of Conservative Cockwombles (CCC) Ben Shapiro

Trigger warning for republican and right wing people: this is a scathing takedown of people you hold dear. I do not apologize for speaking the truth about this reprehensible individuals. So buck up snowflakes. Conservative is a word that is thrown around a lot and is rarely meant in the traditional definition. After all, one could make a great case that many right wing parties in the world are not actually conservative at all. Conservative, if I were to identify it, describes a person who is concerned with protecting old customs traditions, and is resistant to hasty changes. Conservatives resist … Continue reading Calvalcade of Conservative Cockwombles (CCC) Ben Shapiro

Screw Civility

The recent New York Times op ed from an anonymous Trump supporter has infuriated the White House and created speculation about who it was. It was little more than a self-congratulatory screed on how they were there to ensure Trump was kept in check. I agree with the Intercept’s Medhi Hassan, Fuck civility. Civility is often the last refuge of scoundrels from the most awful actions and policies they have made. Corporations are experts in dodging responsibility which is why they have public relations training. Civility is only appropriate if everyone is being treated fairly. Civility is only for people … Continue reading Screw Civility

The Ban Hammer

Alex Jones was officially given the permanent ban on Twitter and I couldn’t be happier. I know many leftists are probably questioning me now on my integrity. After all, if they can ban him, can’t they ban my favorite outlets? Yes and they have always been able to do this. It doesn’t make it right or fair. I don’t enjoy using corporate power to take down crazy people but if nothing else, using the advertisers is the one democratic means we have to fight back. Advertisers decided who is able to have a platform. Some are propped up by conservative … Continue reading The Ban Hammer
