Is the ‘Red Pill’ Teaching Obsolete Skills?

It’s funny how Roosh, one of the main evangelizers of the masculinity/Red Pill movement, is being criticised for, well, not being ‘alpha’ enough. If Roosh can’t do it, what does that say about everyone else? What is means is that the Red Pill’s priorities could…

Wisdom of the Markets

A unified theory of online discourse

There are an implicit set of rules and mores that governs online discussions; by implicit, one only learns them through trial and error because there is no guide, until now. Avoid declarative statements – otherwise you risk appearing pigheaded – a cardinal sin – versus…

Michael Lewis, Idiot

The inveterate whiner and liberal Michael Lewis it at it again, stirring a tempest in a teapot over ‘high frequency spoofing‘. He should stick to writing about baseball. It’s the only subject he is capable of writing about without sounding like a shrill ninny. For…

Grey’s Razor

Hanlon’s razor states: Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity. Today’s huge rally in tech stocks inspired my own version, Grey’s Razor: Never attribute to luck that which is adequately explained by intelligence.

Embracing Modernity

It obvious Donavan is a luddite, of the same branch as primitivist anarchists John Zerzan and Kaczynski. He blames all of society’s ills on technology, as well as anticipating Americas decline, which is a liberal thing to do. Being ‘right-wing’ on some issues doesn’t change…
