Russell Kirk and the Cause for Hope: Western Optimism in Light of the BlackPill

Towards the end of his life, conservative intellectual, Russell Kirk gave a series of lectures in 1987 titled The Wise Men Know What Wicked Things Are Written on the Sky.

HUMMEL Review: Uncle Tom – An Oral History of the Black Conservative (2020)

I’m willing to be brave here on Cultural Revue and take contentious stances on issues like race and bigotry.

HUMMEL – 33 Conservative Film Recommendations for Modern Audiences

I am a man of lists. I like arranging things and creating ordered lists to work through. I’m also a man who enjoys curating and recommending works of art and entertainment to people who don’t delve into film and literature as deeply as I do. I love recommendation lists for these reasons! As a fanContinue reading “HUMMEL – 33 Conservative Film Recommendations for Modern Audiences”

COSMO – Blackpilled or Bust: What does the Disillusioned Right Do Now?

I have nothing to say on the Patriot’s March that took place in Washington D.C on January 6th, 2021 that hasn’t already been said. I don’t care that Antifa agitators were involved; I don’t care about the optics. The ship is sailed. The curtain is down. A Patriot who served her country in unless warsContinue reading “COSMO – Blackpilled or Bust: What does the Disillusioned Right Do Now?”

The Cynicism of “Unity”: A Call For Biden to Distance Himself From the Radical Left

As Joe Biden moved into the transitionary phase in preparation for taking over the White House this month, he’s sold himself as a candidate of reconciliation. His own Twitter account makes it sound like he’s the great uniter and that some vision of America has come back now that the hell of the Trump administrationContinue reading “The Cynicism of “Unity”: A Call For Biden to Distance Himself From the Radical Left”

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?”

Book Review – How Should Christians Vote? by Tony Evans (2012)

I don’t actually remember when I bought this book. It only reappeared to me by coincidence this past month while I was digging through bins of old books I intended to donate. I must have bought it back in high school at a garage sale because the cover is torn and there’s a blue stickerContinue reading “Book Review – How Should Christians Vote? by Tony Evans (2012)”

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”
