10 Selfish Reasons To Have Kids

  I asked life to give me a man who'd always love me, so life laughed and gave me a son.   I looked forward to motherhood before I hit puberty. But this feeling was not met with consensus. Half the females I'd speak to would say "I don't want kids. I'm too selfish." I recall my 8 year old […]

Traditionalism Series

With every new movement created we get a new set of complaints. Comment sections are the bellies of gripe, youtube is a "community" of response content, and social media is spelled 'e-g-o.' Everyday we wake up and lather ourselves up in a thick oil of resentment for "them." We sit around impenetrable to self-reflection. Let's not […]

50 REAL Differences Between Men & Women

Brain scans, controlled studies, evolutionary psychology, and anthropology demonstrate that men and women are not the same! We are physically & mentally different. We input, process and deliver information differently. We evolved with different priorities, and we are marinated in different combinations of hormones. This leads to a misaligned interpretation of reality…which creates conflict, not […]

What Might ‘Male Abortion’ Accomplish?

The youth wing of the Swedish Liberal party is proposing to legalize 'male abortion' up to the 18th week of pregnancy. What this means is, a man can sign away all parental rights and responsibilities during the time frame in which a female can legally terminate a pregnancy. The logic here is that if a woman has the […]

Why My Faith in Bitcoin has Been Restored

  Last year I wrote a piece called "Bitcoin is Not a Honey Badger," where I critiqued the notion that Bitcoin is impossible to kill. I used the analogy of a forest and broke down "being a Bitcoiner" into five stages. I foreshadowed some of Bitcoin's current problems, but not enough to hurt the entertainment […]

Auction for original painting now up   "In trying to describe bitcoin to people, having some sort of physical representation really helps. People are very visual, and having such a beautiful piece of art to accompany the discussion about bitcoin adds a lot of value."   -Matthew Roszak (Coindesk article)   Nothing survives without art.

My Top 10 Favorite Bitcoin Things

My last bitcoin video was a little bleak. Since going to the scaling bitcoin conference I've had a lot of my faith restored in the tech; people are working diligently towards its success. I saw the egos of very smart men set aside. I saw constructive, rational cooperation. I saw the social ostracization of bad actors…wow, when there's […]

The Observed Man is Seldom Sincere: How the State Makes Us Sick

Robert Sapolski had dedicated over 30 years of his life to the study of baboons. He now hates baboons. He describes them as "scheming, violent, backstabbing bastards." Baboons live in complex social hierarchies, with children, females, and smaller males baboons occupying the bottom, and the the largest, most aggressive males occupying the top. The baboons […]

If Abortion Wasn’t A Big Deal, You Wouldn’t Get Emotional About It.

I am pro-choice but anti-abortion. Abortion is a choice. It is not a right. Just like killing any innocent human being is a choice, not not a right. Women will continue to get abortions whether they are legal or not; this is purely a moral subject for me. I do not to judge you just like […]

The End of History Has Ended

By Amir Taaki   Foucault was interested not only in historical analysis, but the history of how historical analysis has changed. The process by which historians look for trends claims a kind of neutrality. They are merely exposing the timeless unseen forces driving history. But historians are not scientists, and even scientists are humans. Foucault […]

atheist pro life, reasons why abortion is wrong

Acknowledging Abortion

When I was in university, I had a debate with a classmate over abortion. I argued that killing an unborn child is very different from killing a full grown person because the child has no relationships, no memories, no personality; it’s basically a clean slate, making it less than human. He then posed me the […]
