There are no grey areas, just low resolution black and white, within which howling, infantile conflict can whip and flare forever. Twitter is an endless game with no prizes, only psychological loops that keep you trapped in its infinite descending corridors.

Good Intentions

“Robert Oppenheimer, a little while before he died, said that it’s perfectly obvious the whole world is going to hell. The only possible chance that it might not is that we do not attempt to prevent it from doing so. Because you see, all the troubles going on in the world now are being supervised by people with very good intentions.”

Deregulate and Create

The inherent leftiness of the arts and music scene is relentlessly stifling, the creative industries having become intractably connected with so-called progressive politics. Those in the industry articulate, of course, a belief in artistic freedom, but it’s a false one, as the strict confines of the like-minded collective invisibly demarcate actual artistic practice.

2018, When All Our Dreams Come True

Progressive types have been pissing and moaning their way through 2017, constantly on the verge of either breaking a cup or checking in to a psych ward, but good news is round the corner. A vision was revealed to me and I can let it be known that 2018 is the year when all the metro-leftist dreams come true and society is remade in their image.

List Makers and Lit Matches

The zealots of Stop Funding Hate and their supporters are utterly convinced they’re doing the right thing, and that should give anyone pause for thought. Carrying out bad acts in the knowledge that they’re bad is worrisome enough. Carrying out bad acts because you sincerely believe yourself to be in alignment with a higher, more virtuous endgame is the first step along the path to a contagious and resilient form of autocratic thinking.

Tory Britain, the Postmodern Version

Tory Britain, you have to love it. It’s kind of a feckless experiment, like grenades-and-rape Sweden, or Justin Trudeau’s identity-free-post-national Canada. Or is it more like France, where they’re fashionably laissez-faire about external borders, but are constructing bulletproof walls around the Eiffel Tower? Or Germany, where mass sex attacks in the street are covered up, but a journalist gets a suspended sentence for publishing a historical photograph.

Punches, Pronouns & Power

The world of transgender activism is disorientating. Stare into it for too long, and it won’t just stare back, it’ll call you a TERF and punch you in the face. In the warped hinterlands of post-logic social justice, the ground slips easily from beneath your feet. There’s no reason or consistency, and no truth to which you can anchor.

Down With Free Speech

The cry from the left is unmistakable now: free speech is dangerous, and to support it marks you out as a suspicious individual. Naturally, you wouldn’t want to be added to any hit lists of people who favour free expression, so best just to grab a pitchfork and hope the mob doesn’t intuit your thought crimes.

Pregressives

Social justice progressives are like a sack of rocks tied round your waist when you’re trying to run a marathon. It’s not that they’re bad people, they’re just so far behind what’s really going on. They’re sitting at the back of the class, wiping gunk from their eyes and babbling nonsensically, while the rest of the school sighs heavily and waits for them to calm down and catch up.
