The Everywhere that is Nowhere

Specific place, personhood, culture and individual context are all being savagely assaulted by the omnipresence of the internet and the fracturing of Western societies into total anticulture, places where there is no commonality between people. This must be said, until it is understood: we are all phantoms, everywhere and nowhere at the same time. We’re […]

A Critique of Jordan B. Peterson

Far from being a darling of the alt-right or secretly promoting fiendish racist ideology, the largest contradiction in Jordan B. Peterson’s sprawling intellectual enterprise is simply the notion that capitalist classical liberalism is the only game we can successfully play on Earth, even as it contradicts the depths of Christian symbols. Now, this is not […]

Tribal, Pre-Literate Society is Returning and There is Nothing You Can Do About It

To truly understand how lost the anti-capitalist of the 21st century is, consider how Jacobin or any socialist publication distributes its ideas. The magazine publishes repeatable type, mass-produced, through the machinery of a commercialized printing press. In other words, those advocating for the commune must spread their ideas via a mechanical, depersonalized process of infinite […]

Artificial Intelligence Won’t Surpass Humankind

The modern world, at its bedrock technological character, could be considered a Tower of Babel. The common tongue of our modern techno-digital world is rather simple – speed. The language of speed has seized the Western world, most perceptibly since the election of Donald Trump. In our Babel, news that would have once taken months […]

The United States is a Corporate Communist Country

As the commons of the internet is dissolved for the profit of carrion-snatchers like Comcast, and the forces of corporate power swirl the modern-day Babel of New York, helmed by Wall Street and Trump, where do ordinary living, working people fit into a world defined by IQ and A.I.? They […]

Markers of Ideological Collapse

The idea that any system we have developed thus far as a species is going to be the one that saves us is extremely unlikely. Everywhere you turn, the current ways people think about politics, culture and biology are a wasteland of half-thoughts that land us nowhere. So, let’s locate the pulse of the problem. […]

The hollowness of Trump

Donald Trump is a neoliberal. But since performance is more deeply valued than policy, he continues to masquerade to his supporters as a populist rebel, a force for human resurgence against the globalists. This mythic narrative is as false as could possibly be. It is 20XX. The people of America, resurrecting the great spirit of […]

The Left will Return to Free Speech or Remain Absurd

What do Left Twitter pundits believe? Taking them at their word, they tend to believe that free speech is a fascist ideal, or only fetishized by reactionaries…until they, the correct leftists, need it, that is. They have an absurdly reductive view of the First Amendment, which holds that only state censorship is meaningful, and individual […]
