The Hexagon of Tyranny

We are facing a six-headed monster of tyranny.  Freedom is on the line, as Western, so-called democratic governments have trashed our basic human rights.  How much do we know, or care?

Welcome to the Covid economy.  Depleted incomes, smashed small businesses, bullshit jobs, a whole new platform for crony capitalism, deserted main streets.  What's not to love?

The Coming Covid Gulag

The Gulag Archipelago is coming to a Western democracy near you, very soon.  Not content with closing down economies and societies, and suppressing freedom, governments and their fellow travellers are now coming for the dissidents.

Biden's Useful Idiots

Useful idiots are, well, useful.  Uncle Joe Biden has plenty.  What are they up to?  And what will they deliver?

The Anglosphere faces a crisis of leadership.  The West is now ruled wall-to-wall by second rate ideologues and/or chancers, either determined to change the global order or powerless to prevent the revolution we now face.

Mourning in America

The United States of America are broken.  We knew that.  But are they corrupt as well?  There are many questions about this election that need some answers.  Americans this week should be wearing black.
