people who regard themselves as journalists came out of this weekend thinking that the main news story on charlottesville is what the president didn't say. this obsession with the presidency and cult of leadership is so stupid on so many... Continue reading

true, true, i'm in the wall street journal today, writing about donald trump and styles of presidential mannishness. the wsj has been infiltrated by judith-butler-style gender theory, for one thing. we've really had some busters. it's been great to write... Continue reading

as you know, i've come up with a simple solution for cultural appropriation: just avoid the words or aesthetic products of minority and oppressed groups. (or it would be simple, if figuring who belongs to what groups were simple). now... Continue reading

one thing about 'science': surprisingly, the word seems to turn off all critical reasoning faculties. but of course you have to like the conclusion; then any argument is a good enough argument, as in this tissue of strange fallacies by... Continue reading

me in splicetoday this week, searching for the free world. america's 'leadership' is based on two things: the size of our economy and the power of our military. let justin trudeau rule narnia with the iron fist of love. meanwhile,... Continue reading

christ did i actually fuck up the name throughout?
perhaps donny's greatest accomplishment is revealing by provocation the bizarre, contradictory, and above all subservient ways that his opponents think about politics. check this showcase of fallacies, contradictions, and fantasies by the emotionally shattered yet sneeringly superior lawrence o'donnell. first...

people who have freaked on trump for ragging mika apparently haven't noticed that she, like many others in the msm, has been hurling brutal but unimaginative and profoundly repetitive personal insults at trump for many months. (that's my splce column... Continue reading

the astonishing henry thoreau, from 'a plea for captain john brown': This event [the raid at Harper's Ferry] advertises me that there is such a fact as death,--the possibility of a man's dying. It seems as if no man had... Continue reading

Seriously, I'd like to know who likes Bruce Nauman's work and why, or who actually gets something out of it and what. He's the latest inductee in the suckme Hall of Fame! joining the likes of John Ashbery, Stephen Hawking,... Continue reading

dan, i read your piece. well, we should bat this around. i guess what i'd take moore to be showing is that *you yourself do believe that there is an external world,* and with much more (subjective) certainty than the various challenges that might be raised. ultimately i am going to argue that the initial appeal to pure sensory experience in the mind's alleged representational system emerges from a wrong view of what sorts of things we are. i don't think lw is a sceptic, however. but that move to grammatical and logical propositions is sheer desperation and is not clarified.
no one who listens to country music can have missed brad paisley, but i'm afraid i didn't focus adequately. i'm just now listening through the whole body of work: ten albums or so, of remarkably consistent excellence. what a fine... Continue reading

after my stint in re-education camp - for which i am really grateful to my jailers - i have come to realize that cultural appropriation is worse than evil: it is inappropriate. now i see that my cornrows were straight-up... Continue reading

here's what people mean when they start howling that we're in a post-truth era, reality is melting, etc. people like us (='the elites') have lost epistemic control over the peasants' minds. well they never had it, really, but they definitely... Continue reading
