Republican Roy Moore, removed from the Alabama Supreme Court for his erratic behavior and banned from the mall for harassing teenage girls, has cloaked his campaign for the Senate in the language of “spiritual warfare.” As such, he is the most apt representative of the Republican Party in our age of cult politics. Moore is… Continue reading The GOP Has Become A Dangerous Cult
Universities: Suspend Social Justice in Universities
Once again, there is absolutely no difference between anti-pc outrage politics and the worst excesses of the straw SJWs that imagine themselves in battle with. If saying something offensive is free speech worthy of protection, even if you disagree; then saying “that’s offensive” is also free speech worthy of protection, even if you disagree.
That neither side seems to see this is really disappointing.
What the Neoreaction Doesn’t Understand about Democracy
The key conclusion to draw from the Mulligan study is that political competition doesn’t go away when you switch away from democracy; rather, it moves to the metapolitical level. Competition within political systems is a substitute for competition over political systems. When the former is stifled, the latter becomes more important, which is why nondemocratic rulers must take greater pains to prevent an overthrow of government than democracies do. There is no limit on the level of metapolitical competition under a dictatorship other than the state of technology available to the state and to its would-be usurpers.
Interesting read for those following the anti-democracy crowd.

Rand Paul Calls Hillary Clinton ‘A War Hawk’
For those playing at home, there are two wings of the GOP. One that claims the Dems are War Mongers and another that claims they are Gutless Surrender Monkeys.
1.8 Million Definite Militia Members to March on DC, Install New Government #MotherJones
Harry Riley has a dream. On the morning of May 16, somewhere between 10 and 30 million (estimates vary) God-fearing patriots will assemble in Washington, DC, for what Riley, a retired Army colonel from the Florida panhandle, is calling “Operation American Spring.” They’ll protest outside the White House by day and set up in campgrounds and RV parks outside the city by night. They won’t leave until President Barack Obama, along with Attorney General Eric Holder and congressional leaders of both parties, resign and appear before a specially convened investigative tribunal for further disciplinary action—a polite version of a tea party coup. It’s not likely to happen—but two former Fox News personalities have endorsed the endeavor.
I doubt its more than a few hundred.
