Critique of Nietzsche

We die empty only to live. Nietzsche rises as Superman only to die.

Below is one of Nietzsche's Opus commentaries. It is a powerful artistic depiction of his Übermensch, or Superman. This is a masterpiece of communication. Anyone who has tried to write knows that the struggle is in how to bring what is in the heart and mind to life in the written word. Nietzsche is masterfully… Continue reading We die empty only to live. Nietzsche rises as Superman only to die.

AOC and the overturning of Aristotelian thought

What I love about AOC is the wholesale overturning of Aristotelian thought that has ruled the West for the past eight hundred years. She and her cohort are examples of Platonic reasoning, and it highlights the differences between the two philosophers. All of us lead either with Aristotle or Plato. Libertarian, "Enlightenment," Jeffersonian thought is… Continue reading AOC and the overturning of Aristotelian thought

We are no longer a nation – it’s time to restructure

We are no longer a nation, and that is what's so painful. That's why this is so ugly. Historians years from now will mark the end of America, not as a point in time in our future, but one in our past. We exist today as warring clans who really do not want to live… Continue reading We are no longer a nation – it’s time to restructure

Omar floats taxing rich up to 90 percent – I say just go for it

Honestly, I say just go for it. I don't even bat an eye anymore. Don't get me wrong. Of course, these folks will bring down the entire system - economically, socially, and culturally, but maybe that's a blessing in disguise. The infanticide has to go, though. No compromise there. The deplorables are working on destroying… Continue reading Omar floats taxing rich up to 90 percent – I say just go for it

Ocasio-Cortez is winning – and we might get so tired of her winning

She’s winning. Those who follow her are going to get so tired of winning. She is Trump’s anti-matter. In a Dr. Who multiverse sort of way, they are the same but opposite. I’m glad she’s winning against the establishment but wish we had no need for her to win. I want her to win versus… Continue reading Ocasio-Cortez is winning – and we might get so tired of her winning

The issue is the unequal distribution of private property.

"Political economy starts with the fact of private property... The only wheels which political economy sets in motion are greed and the war amongst the greedy - competition." ~ Karl Marx Marx was on to something. His insight was on target. The issue is not the unequal distribution of income, which is itself a dire… Continue reading The issue is the unequal distribution of private property.

Critique of Hegel

Those Hegelian, Teilhard de Chardin Jesuits

This is what we have been saying. Hegel is under that rock labeled progressivism. We need to call him out. From a One Peter Five post on Teilhard de Chardin "The general framework (of Teilhard de Chardin) is a Hegelian progressivism in which, in spite of momentary setbacks and conflicts, the whole universe, with mankind… Continue reading Those Hegelian, Teilhard de Chardin Jesuits

“It’s more important to be morally right than factually correct.” I agree with her.

I actually agree with the top comment attributed to Ocasio-Cortez in the meme below, despite the ridicule she has received on social media. Faith should come before reason, and faith should inform reason, so long as faith remains open to the facts and to drawing logical conclusions. This is Plato (top) versus Aristotle (bottom). For… Continue reading “It’s more important to be morally right than factually correct.” I agree with her.

I’m not so sure I am totally opposed to Ocasio-Cortez

I'm not so sure that I am totally opposed to Ocasio-Cortez. She is the Reactionary Left, while Trump is the Reactionary Right. Most tend to focus on the Left and Right part of that equation. I focus on the Reactionary commonality. The goal for me is not so much Republicans winning over Democrats, I belong… Continue reading I’m not so sure I am totally opposed to Ocasio-Cortez

Critique of Rousseau

The “Will of the People” is a Rousseauian Communist tagline – Conservatives should drop it.

One thing the American "Conservative" Right needs to do to keep themselves from being swept away in the coming Leftist, Hegelian, Marxist tsunami, is to come to terms with this notion of "The Will of the People." It does not mean the same thing on the Left as is does on the Right. The problem… Continue reading The “Will of the People” is a Rousseauian Communist tagline – Conservatives should drop it.
