“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending.

The America we once knew, no longer exists

The America we once knew, no longer exists

Our very thoroughly drunken Scottish friend recently posted up a long-form video essay, as it were, looking at a forgotten classic film from the early 1990s. It starred Michael Douglas and Robert Duvall, and was, for its time, considered to be shockingly violent. But...
What does a really conservative country look like?

What does a really conservative country look like?

I do not think anyone around here seriously argues against the view that the West is currently is a state of free-fall, and headed toward total collapse. While living standards in the West remain high by international standards – trust me on that one, I know...

Guest Post: The Four Horsemen of the SM/MM Apocalypse

I am pleased to present another thought-provoking guest post from LRFotS Randale6, who has made good on his plan to leave the FUSA, and is now somewhere in the wilds of Asia. Which, it must be said, relative to the cultural and political disaster that is the FUSA...

International Save-a-Ginger Day

International Save-a-Ginger Day

Today is apparently the single biggest excuse for going out and getting absolutely HAMMERED, because it is St. Patrick’s Day. From what I gather, this is an historical celebration of the death of the eponymous saint, who arrived on the Emerald Isle some 1600...

I am most pleased to present another compelling and thought-provoking guest post from LRFotS Randale6, who is evidently wrestling with the question of what is true, and who, among the various world religions, is right and correct. As such, he has written what is...
The death of the “rules-based international order”

The death of the “rules-based international order”

Exactly two years ago today, we all woke up to discover the Russian Federation, under the orders of President Vladimir Putin, had launched a powerful invasion of its much smaller neighbour, Ukraine. It was a dark and terrible day, one that I will forever remember...
