Inequality is what makes the world an interesting place to be human

That meme where feminists in other countries are shown dressed in military gear with guns locked and loaded looking really badass while American feminists are shown looking all hip, hedonistic, self-indugent and, well, millennial. Priceless. Open this week’s issue of TIME and get a load of how many pages were devoted to that Women’s March […]

Do immigrants steal jobs from their host country’s natives?

The common-sense wisdom is that they do, because they work cheap. Take Silicon Valley. They lead the pack whining about a lack of “programming talent”. Their solution to that “challenge” is to (1) open America’s doors to immigrant “talent” and (2) convince girls that coding is a cool activity to engage in. The hope is […]

Why liberals are to blame for the ban on US immigrants and everything else to follow

Just recently, US President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Order placing a ban on US immigrants coming from seven Muslim-majority nations. The news spread like wildfire overnight, and airports are on the frontlines resisting protesters. Normal flights are disrupted as even legal immigrants aren’t spared from “extreme vetting” and are thus prevented from landing […]

Donald Trump’s rise to power confirms a full global backlash against hipster culture

The ascent of Donald Trump to the leadership of the Free World represents a massive fail on the part of America’s techno-industrial complex to deal with the reality of the character of America he represents.

Should we really be worried about President Duterte’s conduct at international gatherings?

One could reasonably expect Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte to cause an uproar even before he gets on a plane. And he did; the issue, however, should be framed less around what he said about the United States and its president Barack Obama, as the source of uproar, and more around the people interpreting what he […]

Are comments sections becoming a thing of the past?

Comments sections can be both a boon and a bane for online sites, whether they be news sites or blogs. In an ideal setting, the conversations and insights that can be derived from those who leave comments would be wholesome, respectful, decent, lucid, on-topic, and diverse. The ideal setting does not exist in today’s internet […]

The Ghostbusters reboot: busting more than just ghosts

The Ghostbusters series recently had a reboot of its own. For those of us old enough to remember, there were two live-action movies in the 1980’s and at least one animated series afterwards. Basically, what has stayed consistent throughout the three live-action comedy movies is that three of the main characters are scientists who are […]

#Brexit is an opportunity for Britain to re-learn what it means to be British

Democracy is a bitch when it doesn’t go your way. That’s pretty much the sentiment New Age mouthpieces in corporate media and the broader community of hipsters who parrot the politically-correct taglines of people “outraged” by the British vote to leave the European Union today (trending in social media under the hashtag #Brexit). One commentator […]
