The Arriviste

The Economist, an English infotainment magazine, as incredible as it now may seem, once upon a time was a serious publication with a limited but distingished audience. It contained insightful articles about economy and related subjects. After having sunk precipitously for quite some time, it has now arrived where it apparently wants to belong.

S.O.D. #10: Cerebral Meltdown Ceremony

Sometimes, fake news media is making my job much too easy. Recent reports on a geological development on Iceland include both the unsubstantiated claim that carbon-dioxide-emission driven global warming was its cause and the incontrovertible refutation thereof. What is left for me to do except to call abject stupidity? This is really as stupid as … Continue reading S.O.D. #10: Cerebral Meltdown Ceremony

Did a Black Lives Matter Activist “Write a List of Recommendations about What Wealthy White People Can Do to Help Eradicate Racial Injustice”?

No, of course she didn’t. Chanelle Helm, cofounder and core organizer of Black Lives Matter Louisville, wrote a nazi manifesto. And it’s despicable. A shame on Ms. Helm! This article in Snopes, from which the paraphrase in this article’s title is taken, tries it very best to libsplain how the blatantly national socialist manifesto of Ms. … Continue reading Did a Black Lives Matter Activist “Write a List of Recommendations about What Wealthy White People Can Do to Help Eradicate Racial Injustice”?
