Politics and Foreign Affairs

Oct 21, 2016 The Three Ages of Trump: The Age of Being the Outsider, the Early Primaries. He says strange things that still can be justified – he doesn’t explain his positions well, but he will. He’s new to politics. He didn’t say they were all rapists. He was talking about the […]

The Three Ages of Trump

October 19, 2016 Dillon Freed I was in one of my graduate school classes, and naturally, then commenced a bashing of all things conservative and American. About twenty students plus a professor, and only one, myself, trying to explain that the conservative party and America wasn’t arrantly racist and sexist. I feel […]

Political Dance Theory: How Students Thinking is All Choreographed

Aug 27, 2016 Dillon Freed There must be a new degree program at university called The Insanities, and it must be the most popular major nationwide. The curriculum must include striving for ignorance in history, economics, and psychology. And yet, at once, feeling as if you have all the solutions to the […]

The Insanities: The Most Popular College Major in America

July 16, 2016 Dillon Freed What’s in a name?  The Right has had tantrums about President Obama’s reluctance to utter the term “Islamic terrorism.” But whether it is appropriate or not comes down to what his advisors are suggesting. And by his advisors, I mean only those around him who have spent significant […]

The “New Acts of God” – Islamic Terror

July 1, 2016 Dillon Freed So much for respecting the will of the people and democracy. Why are those who most championed the power of the people so angry that the people used that power? It is sort of funny to watch the flailing of the Left over this, and maybe […]

Brexit and Trump: Two Middle Fingers to the Left

May 24, 2016 Dillon Freed Emotional hypocrisy today is epidemic and shameful.  We see extravagances of rage over relatively minor societal disturbances; and conversely, frugal indignation concerning actual evil and idiocy. We watch people go berserk over dubious accusations of “racially charged” language, and then observe the calm manner in which they discuss inner-city murder rates. There are enormous, frothing […]

Emotional Hypocrisy

May 10, 2016 Dillon Freed When it is said that the Right has the “uneducated vote,” do those who say it mean to imply that a person who went to college is, just for the going, educated? Or for that matter, brighter than someone who didn’t attend? That’s a magnificently dumb assumption. Some of the […]

The “Educated” Vote

Jan 7, 2017 Dillon Freed Here are some predictions for what will occur in the next few centuries: 1) Artificial intelligence and materialistic neuroscience will lead to spiritual catastrophe – there will be a great spike in the number of educated people who do not believe in any metaphysics at all. The imitation […]

11 Predictions

April 10, 2016 Dillon Freed Many soi-distant intellectuals and upstart concerned citizens are condoning inaction in Iraq and Syria after several chemical attacks by soberly saying, “both sides are wicked.” Other realpolitik-Machiavellian souls are averring much the same in a different way: let them fight each other and do whatever they […]
