Free Thought Cuts Both Ways – Use it Wisely

Free thought can lead you to discover the truth when no-one else is speaking it, but it can also lead you to the wrong conclusion, particularly when you have only part of the picture available to you. This, I suspect, is the true reason that so few people are willing to speak out against coordinated…

Another Point About False Dichotomies: Reality Denial Knows no Ideological Bounds

What follows is my longest opinion piece yet.  While I fully expect that anyone who is determined enough to read the whole thing will walk away feeling the need to drive their fist through their computer screen, I did not write such an inflammatory article unprovoked. America is the land of false dichotomies; "you are…

A Point or Two About False Dichotomies

Well, a certain false dichotomy, that is, specifically the "left-right" political dichotomy of the United States.  My primary reason for discussing it right now is in response to some rather vitriolic comments on a recent article on Bracing Views.  In the event that I get into another spat with Greg or someone like him, I'll…

A Controversial History Lesson – Redone

Of BitChute Music and Cancelled Vlogs

I had planned to start making a vlog on BitChute with regular updates, but this format is much quicker for me.  As much as I would love to make animations, Adobe Flash CS3 is very picky when it comes to the exact settings for MP3 files that are used as soundtracks.  I've found a complete…

Come On WordPress, I Thought You Were Cool

Right, so, I have some issues with WordPress.  And LinkedIn, for much the same reason, which I will explain shortly. The first issue I'd like to bring up is the traffic.  I know that, technically speaking, someone doesn't have to view any of my posts in order to actually read them, since I make the…
