Social Justice Warrior Handbook by Lisa De Pasquale (Book Review)

In July, I wrote about how we need to support more artists who lean to the right politically. Culture may be downstream from politics as Andrew Breitbart stated, but politics is also greatly influenced by culture.  The intimate relationship between liberal Hollywood and liberal DC politics has been clear for decades.

Sallust: Impressive New Translation from Quintus Curtius

Quintus Curtius is one of my favorite writers. Part of this has to do with who he is as a person. He is one of the last, true Rennaissance Men of modern day. A former marine officer, who then became a lawyer who is also a painter, writer and translator, Quintus Curtius shares his views on discipline, honor, art, politics,...Read More

In the April 22, 2016 edition of the Federalist, writer Henry Scanlon writes about his observations that conservative women are more beautiful, stylish and poised than their liberal counterparts. He’s careful to qualify his statements with credentials like “I spent years in the photography business, which causes me to reflexively notice what things look like” to assure us this is just a...Read More

Unthinking Cerebrals and their Awful Pseudo Intellectual Signaling

I recently wrote a post called “Modern Literature is nothing more than an Anti-Intellectual Word Salad” about trends in literature that have made books almost unreadable. Modern Literature is nothing more than an Anti-Intellectual Word Salad Putting aside stylistic preferences, the other glaring problem of modern literature is that it is incoherent.
