Hooey and Phooey from John C. Wright

Hooey and Phooey by John C Wright in which he criticizes the alt-right. And a response by Vox Day Safe as houses in which he defends Wright’s competence as an author despite their political differences. The problem is Mr. Wright puts himself on a moral…

Post-Pundit era and decentralization

For some reason I’ve been fascinated by why certain stories/articles go viral. It’s obvious why breaking news – such as the death of Bin Laden for example – may go viral, because it signifies a major event or outcome. But other instances are less obvious….

Alt Right: Consumerism, Crony Capitalism, and Immigration

I’m sure everyone has seen the alt-right ‘mural‘ of the various things that the alt-right supports and supposes. A few observations: I’m kinda surprised by how it ‘strongly opposes’ SJWs but only ‘moderately opposes’ SJW-media. Also surprised that it only has ‘minor opposition’ to crony…

Alt-Right and Internet Journalism

Alt Right Part 2, and the NRx Endgame

It’s kinda amazing how much attention this debate over ‘alt right’ has gotten in the past week. This leads to two questions; what is the ‘alt right’, which I discuss here, and, on a related note, what does this mean for NRx? What should the…
