I’m a small-state liberal. I was going to post about how I would try to implement communism with the benefit of knowledge of the last 150 years, but then I realised I’d just be re-inventing social democracy. Almost any ideology that isn’t anarchist can be described as “social democracy”, of course. ...

Yes, the Democrats are the real fascists. Unironically, yes, as they're busy body authoritarians who want to control every aspect of our lives, as they are convinced they know our own interests better than we do, and want to use a combination of state and private power to accomplish it. Let’s accep...

There are indeed many unpleasant ideologies, even far-right ideologies, that are not fascism. The US certain was an apartheid state for most of its existence, but it isn’t now. It hasn’t fully recovered, for sure, the effects still linger, but race doesn’t determine where you can live or work or use...

[In the case of the trans stuff I strongly suspect that there is going to be an extremely unpleasant reckoning for your side of things once the shear shoddiness of the "science" and flimsiness of the "evidence" that was used to justify all of this mess is exposed to the general ...

In before the parade of those who don't know that "fascism" means something besides "political group I don't like", let alone that it's much more applicable to today's Democrats than to the GOP given the public/private power alliance they've got going on. Yes, the Democrats are ...

Unfortunately that is just one piece of the security puzzle.

Both the "Q" and the "+" are ways of truncating the acronym. "Q" stands for "queer", which is a catch-all term that can include anyone who isn't heterosexual, cisgender, perisex (not intersex), heteroromantic, and monogamous (not entirely sure of the best way ...

Just a quick note on the Nordic countries; many of the have enormous oil wealth, and that has allowed them to prop up generous social welfare programs despite otherwise lackluster economies. Make of that what you will. Norway has lots of oil. The reason Sweden, Finland, and Denmark can afford their...

This is the first time I ever heard of it. No idea what it is. Is it a TERF term or what? LOL, there are no such things as TERFs, it's just a meaningless slur. :| Come on, I thought you wanted to have rational discussions? There are absolutely plenty of trans-exclusionary radical feminists. Not all...

America never ceases to entertain.

I thought those "in this house we believe that science is real" signs were cringeworthy, but this is something else. A spectacularly failed attempt at hardcore virtue signalling to the max.

As far as I can tell, everyone who has used the term has been transphobic and has been arguing broadly against drag performers, or trans women, or both. I think it's reasonable to not be a fan of drag - it is an art form, and you don't have to like art. I also think it's reasonable to critique indiv...

That's backed up by evidence in the UK at least, where over 50% of people say they are atheist, a further 7% agnostic. Of those that remain, the biggest religion is Anglican Christians (CofE, CofS, CofW and CofI) at around 17%, then a fractured group of non-Anglican Christians, Catholics and a spri...

Stealing is objectively evil not simply because you are taking what you did not work for, but because your creative effort did not go into taking possession of it, you destroy the value of it. The victim is at a loss, but the thief gains nothing. Theft is irrational, always. And so the destruction ...

Comparing political parties internationally is more difficult than people realise. It’s easy to pick a couple of issues and show that either party is more conservative than the other. For example, the British Conservatives support the monarchy, they want immigration to be extremely low (long standi...
