“Gun control is the idea that it’s better to see a woman dead in an alley, strangled
with her own pantyhose, than to see her with a gun in her hand.”—T.D. Melrose

Khruschev Was Right
(The Feature Article)

Twitter, Dedicated to … Well … Um …

The point is that Democrats, the mainstream
media, and Big Tech are falling all over
themselves not only to prove every "right
wing conspiracy theory" correct, but they
have doubled down and redoubled.

Khruschev Was Right
by L. Neil Smith
Many individuals reading this may be too young to remember Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev. He was once the bloody-handed dictator of the former Soviet Union, back when Elvis was the King of Rock’n’Roll. He was ably portrayed by Bob “Eddie Valiant” Hoskins in 2001’s Enemy at the Gates, about the Battle of Stalingrad. If you look him up in communist Wikipedia, they will try to persuade you that he was a saint, slightly to the right of Mother Theresa. (Just now Wikipedia has its hand out, begging for contributions. I metaphorically spit in that hand, and would do it in person if I could.)

Technique of the Coup D’Etat
by Sarah A. Hoyt
There is a technique to the coup d’etat, particularly one that is known not to be wanted by the people of the country upon which you performed it. As in the French revolution it always involves terror. I’m very afraid the enemy—what do you call people who encourage you to chant “Death to America” but think the American flag is a symbol of “white supremacy”?—is set to unleash terror this weekend.

A Suggested Executive Order
by T.J. Mason
Submitted for the consideration of President Donald J. Trump in the final days of his Administration—
Whereas the Bill of Rights of the Constitution of the United States, affirmed by the Fourteenth Amendment, secures specific rights to the individual people of the United States, specifically…


“Accelerationism” and the Ruling Class
by Paul Bonneau
Not long ago, the political meaning of acceleration or “accelerationism” meant something not much more complex than right-wingers voting for Hillary rather than Trump. (Of course, left-wingers voting for Hillary, had nothing to do with accelerationism.) I’d like to use it in a broader sense, but first I have to delve into the ruling class model. What recipe for domination and control do all or nearly all ruling classes follow?

Fahrenheit 451: A Review (Contains Spoilers)
by Sean Gangol
I remember reading Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury during my junior year in high school. It was one of the few books that I enjoyed on my required reading list in English. I also wrote a report, which included an analysis of the book, as well as how censorship impacts society. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the book, it centers around Guy Montag, who is part of a fire department that no longer puts out fires, but is instead tasked with burning books. Montag never even pays a second thought to whether he is in the right profession, until he comes across a free-thinking teenager and an old woman who decided that it was better to burn with her books than to watch as they are being taken away. It is then that he commits the unforgiveable sin of reading, which makes him a fugitive from the law. As you probably guessed by now, this book has an anti-censorship and anti-authoritarian theme to it, which is one of the reasons why I still find this book appealing twenty-three years later.

Escapist Literature: A Few more good Heinleins
by Jeff Fullerton
It’s been a pretty manic week in human affairs. Namely the continuing fallout from the Capital Riots from the previous week and the continuing onslaught of the Covid 19 Pandemic that is surging again. So much for the hope that 2021 might be better than 2020. The way things are going I’m sorely tempted to shut off the sewer pipe of the newsfeed coming onto my phone least I drown in the misery and despair that surrounds me. And escape.
