The Dark Enlightenment in New Pop Fiction?

One of my dear Progressive friends gave me a book by David Mitchell, author of Cloud Atlas, called The Bone Clocks. I finished it a couple months ago. It’s Mitchell’s most recent work, and I haven’t read anything else by him to which I could compare it. Despite Mitchell’s ability to balance a quick-moving plot with fanciful prose, prose that measures higher than most popular fantasy or science fiction, the book still fell flat for me. My friend is dying of cancer. So to be decent I had to wait to tell him my thoughts on the novel, and discuss with him in person the gift he gave me, before I wrote about it here. Again, for the most part, The Bone Clocks fell flat for me. And it will fall flat for you, as well, if you’re not a Progressive. Here’s why.

Esquire Mag: Are You Man Enough to Peck a Penis?

Recently I had the unfortunate experience of discovering an Esquire article from February, 2014, by the quintessential queen of snark, Stephen Marche, whose title asks us, “Gentleman, Are You Man Enough to Caress a Penis?”

A Response to Sartwell's "apartheid of hemispheres" post

Here  is a rapid response I wrote on Crispin Sartwell's blog. It got a bit lengthy, so I reposted it here:

Anarchy of the Right –The Disease We Need

(The Dance of Death)

All right. So the blog hasn’t gone full reset yet. Oh, well. Neither has ‘merica. That’s fine. It’s not ‘merica that needs the reboot. Or does it? And if so, what sort of destructive reset does it need?
Let’s say that anarchy, chaos and destruction are bad things. I tend to agree to an extent. But I’m an anarchist. What does that mean? Post an-cap neoreactionary perhaps? Maybe. Maybe not. I’m not even a Steel Anarchist. I just happen to value freedom of association, which entails freedom of movement, which entails totally open borders and in turn the destruction of private borders and, thus, private property.
Wait. What? That’s right. I’ve gone full communist. But that’s what we all need to do.

New Stuff on the Way

It's been over a year since I finished Moldbug. Praise sweet Jesus, it's 2015. And I've determined that this blog is in need of a reboot.
