• Black Mirror makes me want to scroll that Facebook feed into oblivion

    Is Black Mirror trying to scare or to scar? So I have finally gone through the entire available third season of Black Mirror. It’s been a sad journey. No, strike that, the damn thing got me downright depressed. I mean it. Sad. Not bad. High quality show, nothing to say here. It’s just that, damn, after […]

  • Capitalism versus humans

    Here is a story: A guy looked at my Corvette the other day and said: “I wonder how many people could have been fed for the money that sports car cost.” I replied: “I am not sure, it fed a lot of families in Bowling Green, Kentucky who built it, it fed the people who make […]

  • You cannot have empathy for your oppressors because if you did you’d become your own oppressor

    The opressed for the opressor may experience: mercy forgiveness compassion Why I believe these words are thrown around so weirdly, well, it is because we’re so bad at googling word definitions and word etymology, and because they tend to press painful wounds when needed. Take a child molester and the adult today molested child. There […]

  • Incipient sickness

    I hate the expression: you don’t get to [place human emotional craving here] It is the new way of emotional punishing: crush their oxytocin levels by openly reflective reverse empathy. Who the fuck gave you power over what I get to? Your weird crappy prescription morality? Your obvious logical superiority? And gawd is this popular! […]

  • What do you do for a living?

    The dread question that begs another: are you worthy of a living? Am I? I don’t know. I sell myself as high as I’m able to, but I never received the scale of worthiness. I watched this movie, About a boy, and in it this guy Hugh Grant was playing, had no job because of steady […]

  • Porn thrives because of bees and flowers

    Women don’t barter sex. Women barter men’s emotional fulfillment. Am I late to the party for a rant? To clear up confusion upfront, I am here to defend porn. In case you haven’t read Emma Lindsay’s piece on how porn makes men terrible in bed, you should. It is a valid point, which she later […]

  • Don’t change the man in the mirror, change the world in my eyes

    Science advances one funeral at a time, said Max Planck. This is a greater truth than it first appears: if you want to change the world, start early. If you are some teenager browsing Medium and find this article by a remote chance and you feel the drive to make this planet better or drive humanity […]

  • What is commonly accepted utility?

    The return of the prodigal son What are we all striving for? Isn’t it for a better future and if so, isn’t this “better” quite practical, if you come to think of it. I mean, sure, there are so many things which mean “a better future” conceptually, but they’re dwarfed by the incisive sharpness of immediate […]

  • Beware of singlethink!

    George Orwell got this one wrong There are some forms of art, literature, visual and other, which are so grand that you cannot go around them, no matter how much you try. I wish I had found another example, rather than referencing Nineteen Eighty-Four, yet again, but it is simply too good and too precise not […]

  • Women are not crazy, men are lazy

    A harsh truth that happens to make a rhyme I have found in my searches and learning that, apparently, the real history of mankind is built on various answers to the question of questions: what do women want? And somehow, almost always, the answer was power. My fellow men, you’ve been misguided and so have I. […]
