    Trump and the Disease of Middle-Class Leftism

    As mid-term elections approach in the United States, President Trump’s political future is at stake. In this essay, I argue that these elections are not only about Trump’s future but the future of reason and civilisation in a world where madness has seized the reins of power. This is perhaps the first time in modern history where expressing support for the US president could get you fired from your job, or abruptly excluded from polite company.

    French Workers Need More Diversity and Carbon Taxes!

    Many media outlets regret that the Spirit of 1968 is lacking among today’s youth. I argue that leftism since 1968 is essentially a culture of death and moral turpitude. What is lacking today is coherent class analysis. For the past few months, there have been major strikes in France’s SNCF railways. The Macron government wants to privatise the railway; French workers are resisting. French railways are among the achievements of post- 1945 France. The dirigiste economic model started under General Pétain and continued under his protegé and later rival Charles de Gaulle; it’s an inconvenient truth for many on the …
