Free Speech Suffers as ‘Fortnite’ Reality Rises

As my son’s birthday rolled around last week, my wife and I were unsure about what to buy him. Awash in a sea of easily procured, cheaply available, Chinese-manufactured baubles, our son’s regard for physical objects—toys—seems tepid, at best. As consumer manufacturing pipelines increase and corporations release infinite variables of intellectual properties there are few

The Joke’s on Those Demanding a Female ‘Joker’

It’s amazing what a difference success makes. Within a mere few weeks of its release we've gone from revulsion at the idea of the new “Joker” movie to calls for it to be reinterpreted as a female empowerment film. Before it was released, there was tremendous chatter among the scolderati and news personalities (but I

Confirmation Contempt

The spectacular calving of a glacier is not a spontaneous process. What seems, at first, to be a single, instantaneous episode is, in reality, the culmination of years of small fractures, faults, and crevasses forming and degrading the stability of the ice before the calving occurs. Civic institutions work the same way. When they fall,

A Monopoly on Our Memory

Nikolai Yezhov was an abominable man and one of the most feared figures in the early days of the Soviet Union. As head of Stalin’s secret police from 1936-1938, Yezhov helped the Communist dictator consolidate power by presiding over the Great Purges, which saw the murder of 950,000 people for political crimes and the arrest

No Aid for Censors: The Case for Quitting Twitter

Last night I suspended Twitter indefinitely. This had been building for some time for two primary reasons. First, Twitter, like Facebook (which I had given up a few months ago), is a hate machine. Second, Twitter’s ever-changing terms of service and curiously selective enforcement of said terms via shadow and outright bans made

Politically Correct Pedophilia

It's practically a cliché when an old guy or a conservative complains about declining moral standards. But with the news of a professed pedophile now openly seeking a seat in Congress and placing his pedophilia front and center as part of his platform, I feel fairly secure in passing judgment on our society. Something

Alight With Good Intentions

I guess “Lit” is the new “Woke.” On April 14, David S. Buckel, a prominent attorney renowned for championing gay rights and environmental causes, doused himself with gasoline and burned himself alive in what he called a “protest suicide” to bring attention to our lack of action on the environment. His suicide note,
