Joining Thermidor

I had said that I would have an article at Thermidor upcoming, but the truth is somewhat more substantial.  Since the magazine started, my good friend P.T. (the founder) has expressed a wish that I join the team there in a more official capacity than as a regular contributor. I’m glad to announce that henceforth…

The Intersection of Metahistory & Sainthood

I’m working on something for Thermidor next week. For now, I have a piece up at The Orthosphere discussing the importance of the saints in Christianity, particularly with regards to keeping the message of Christ relevant for people as time goes on, through national ‘pantheons’ of saints.

A Troll Assumes My Identity

In a rather amusing turn of events, somebody has decided to begin posting comments under my name and icon.

This astute observation recognizes that liberal ideals form their own kind of dogma and function as a social religion, performing the same functions that any normal religion would, in placing restrictions…

Cube & The Price of Conspiracy

Apologies for the delay in content. It has been an extremely busy period. I have another piece up at Thermidor Mag, which by the way is really coming into its own as of late. Those who follow me will know that cinema (despite being a previous passion of mine) rarely if ever appears as a…

Little England

The English have a secret weapon, one which they don’t seem to even realize that they have. Some time ago, the English identity was partitioned into two pieces: English and British. As the British Empire was constructed between the 16th and 20th Centuries, to call oneself British was a statement of national pride, not only…
