Chesterton’s Fence and The First Tuesday in November: In Defense of In-Person Voting

With each passing day it becomes clear that this election is a verifiable mess, a chaotic repudiation of the very system of universal suffrage itself. Now, as it stands, we are left beleaguer, stymied by the depths of chicanery never seen before. Only one thing remains certain, it’s going to get worse. But in thisContinue reading “Chesterton’s Fence and The First Tuesday in November: In Defense of In-Person Voting”

Ignorance is Virtue: How Do You Do, Fellow Rednecks?

On Oct. 31st, Lady Gaga tweeted a video of herself dressed in camo, standing by a lifted truck, and “drinking” a beer. In the video she promotes voting Biden and tells her fans she’ll be in her home state of PA, presumably to campaign for Joe. Upon seeing it I laughed out loud. The clipContinue reading “Ignorance is Virtue: How Do You Do, Fellow Rednecks?”

Joker, Cultural Chaos and the Depths of Moral Evil: How to Awkwardly Capture the Zeitgeist

I hadn’t watched Joker since I saw it opening night in the theater also last October. It’s not hard to explain why. It’s a deeply uncomfortable film to watch. Plus I pretty much got the gist of it the first time. I didn’t feel the need to return to the film after that first viewing.Continue reading “Joker, Cultural Chaos and the Depths of Moral Evil: How to Awkwardly Capture the Zeitgeist”

The Conservative Case for Joe Biden

I have already voted for the first time in a general election. I mailed my ballot from my college around ten days ago at the time of writing this. However, this is not my first time voting technically. I voted in the democratic primary in March and local elections in the summer. On March thirdContinue reading “The Conservative Case for Joe Biden”

The Conservative Case for Trump

Donald Trump is imperfect. He is overtly lacking, deeply flawed. From his extra-marital failures to his maddeningly imprecise language. He is a bull in a china shop. A metaphorical middle finger to establishment elites far too cozy on their porcelain thrones. The core of what he says is usually correct, but his details are fuzzy,Continue reading “The Conservative Case for Trump”

The Conservative Case for Kanye West

“Poopy-di scoop, Scoop-diddy-whoop, Whoop-di-scoop-di-poop, Poop-di-scoopty, Scoopty-whoop…” Lift Yourself, Kanye West The man who wrote these “lyrics” is running for president and I’m deeply amused by that fact. I’m going to front load this piece by saying I was mostly kidding when I thought of writing this piece. Kanye West isn’t technically a “seriously candidate forContinue reading “The Conservative Case for Kanye West”

In Defiance of the Dark: How Preserving American Culture means celebrating Halloween!

Let me begin by stating my obvious bias, I love Halloween. I like scary stories, I love pumpkin spice lattes, fake cobwebs, classic horror movies, pumpkin carving, and ghoulish skeletons. My favorite Halloween pastime is handing out candy, longing for the day when I can take my own children trick-or-treating. For the past several years,Continue reading “In Defiance of the Dark: How Preserving American Culture means celebrating Halloween!”

Dinesh D’Souza’s America – How Five Documentaries Depict A Declining Conservative Intellectual

A copy of Dinesh D’Souza’s new documentary Trump Card arrived in the mail this week. I haven’t been anticipating watching it of late but I was prepared to give it a shot given that I gave the last four of his documentaries a shot. If nothing else, I was hoping there might be something moreContinue reading “Dinesh D’Souza’s America – How Five Documentaries Depict A Declining Conservative Intellectual”

Ignorance is Virtue: The Hilarious Irony of Leftist Myth Making

A statue of Medusa was unveiled in Manhattan this month. This is unremarkable on its face—Greek Myth has long been a subject of artistic endeavor, including painting and statuary. There’s just one difference about this one: Medusa is the “hero” who has slain and beheaded the “villain,” Perseus. According to the artist, it’s a metaphorContinue reading “Ignorance is Virtue: The Hilarious Irony of Leftist Myth Making”

Stopping The Race To Make Batman Toxic

Batman has become one of the most iconic figures not only in pop culture but in society as a whole since his debut in a 1939 issue of Detective Comics written and drawn by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. He has gone through many iterations over the decades, all vastly different than the pulp vigilanteContinue reading “Stopping The Race To Make Batman Toxic”
