It’s All About Love
Posted on

This piece first appeared on XYZ.

There are a lot of myths about Christians and Christianity that are repeated endlessly in our media, classrooms and casual conversations. It’s a faith that everyone in the West thinks they understand perfectly and have strong opinions about, however the views that people hold are often not based on any solid evidence. Because we might have gone to Catholic school or seen churches around town growing up, we tend to think we know what all that Christianity palaver is about. Familiarity has bred complacency, if not contempt.

The next time you see that old stone church near the centre of town that is now mostly uninhabited, ask yourself: ‘Why did they bother building it?’ Were they really just brainwashed and superstitious?… Read the rest

The Womb Is Cultural Marxism’s Gas Chamber
Posted on

This piece first appeared on XYZ.

Many on the left have only recently become exposed to the ‘alt’ ideas of the various components of the anti-establishment movement. It’s like they woke up one day during the presidential election and suddenly noticed the alt media, alt news, the alt right and its less race-focused cousin the alt light. Lazy neo-Marxist pseudo-intellectuals suddenly panicked at the philosophical challenges posed by movements such as cultural libertarianism, neoreaction, traditionalism, civilisationism and white identitarianism. The left have been put on notice that their victory lap around Western culture is done and the fight was not yet over.… Read the rest

Everyone’s A Marxist Now

Post originally appeared on XYZ.

If you believe that equality is the utmost aspiration for civilised societies, if you believe that certain categories of humanity have been denied equality by other groups throughout history, if you believe that the causes of inequality are structural and if you believe that it is legitimate for the power of the State to be used to reduce inequality then you’re a Marxist. You might prefer a more polite term such as ‘progressive’ or say that you just think everyone should have a ‘fair go’ or just have thought those beliefs so natural that you don’t even notice them, but it doesn’t matter.… Read the rest

The Jewish Question
Posted on

What is it about the Jews? Despite their tiny numbers this people has contributed to the direction of world history more than any other single race. Even the most hardened anti-Semites (and their number is growing again) must acknowledge the singular exceptionality of the Judeans.

If you traveled around the Mediterranean today, no matter how hard you looked, you will find no Carthaginians. You will not find Scythians around the Black Sea, and you will find no Minoans or Lydians or Spartans or Illyrians or Vandals. No ancient people group has survived with its language, religion, culture and heritage intact.… Read the rest

The Economy of God and the Economy of Satan
Posted on

This post follows on from Why I am a Christian.

For those of who have never read the Bible, it’s not just a story of how Jesus did nice things for people. Actually the topic Jesus talked about most often was the coming judgement for those who are outside him, and his imagery was pretty intense. The Bible is not about punishment though; it is about redemption. It’s a letter from God explaining his plan to fix everything back to how he first intended it because he loves you so much. The image of God as harsh and cruel is an old Gnostic lie that we see throughout our culture.… Read the rest
