Catch The Zeitgeist

I’m sure our followers are starting to tire of winning-or, at the very least, want to take a leisurely break-so we thought we’d present a fascinating philosophical debate completely unrelated to this past week’s presidential election. The Zeitgeist movement-as best as I can surmise from this debate-is a strange mixture of anarcho-syndicalism, techno-Marxism, earth...

Friday Night Fights

Friday Night Fights

  One of my favorite spectator sports is live debating. Although not all debates are as riveting as the Nick Gillespie-Walter Block confrontation which occurred last night, this election cycle has taught us all the entertainment value of a good one.

The Hawkeye State (Decision ’16)

    Update: Senator Cruz has emerged victorious, with Donald Trump and Marco Rubio rounding out the top 3, while Hillary Clinton and her socialist opponent are virtually even with nearly all of the precincts counted.  The Guardian is tracking the Iowa vote as it comes in.

Weird Tales

One of the more gratifying experiences I’ve had over the past year has been witnessing the support you’ve shown for Seavey and Perry on Culture. Although this podcasting experiment has ended, it left me with a deep appreciation for the world of film and film criticism and awareness of how much some of you...

The Paradox of the PMOI

The Paradox of the PMOI

One simple word which encapsulates the sum of the aspirations harbored by Iranians throughout the world, both those in exile and those living, and suffering, in the land of their birth. It was one of the demands invoked repeatedly throughout the pro-democracy demonstrations which took place last week at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza. These protests were held against...

May Day 2012 (Marxists, Communists, Librarians)

May Day 2012 (Marxists, Communists, Librarians)

One of the hallmarks of demonstrations organized by the left-as anyone who lives in this city can attest-is a consistently muddled message-or assemblage of messages-which often has little bearing on the theme ostensibly animating the protest movement in question. I’m not sure if the occupiers displaying the words of anti-USSR, Marxist Polish philosopher-turned anti-Marxist...

Philadelphia Phreedom (Part II)

Philadelphia Phreedom (Part II)

That is a photograph of the very demonstrative State Senator Mike Doherty, whose address to the Paul faithful was interrupted by the man everyone had come to Philadelphia to see, accompanied-as always-by his charming wife, Carol. Senator Doherty was the penultimate speaker in a stable of high profile Paul supporters who took the stage across...

Philadelphia Phreedom/End The Fed

Philadelphia Phreedom/End The Fed

That is Congressman Ron Paul, speaking to a surprisingly large crowd of supporters on the extremely wet lawn of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania the day before today’s Republican presidential primary. The site where this nation’s founding charter was drafted was an apt forum for a candidate whose entire campaign is based upon a...

Reality Based Debate

Now that criticizing anyone in the Obama administration accused of malfeasance, gross negligence, and actions indirectly leading to the deaths of hundreds of Mexicans, among others, is incontrovertibly racist, I suppose it’s a good time to look at why we never see an honest examination of the immigration issue in the mainstream media. Thankfully,...
