Biological Masquerade

by Mike Pyatt

Mike Pyatt

In 1953, Ex-GI, George Jorgensen, departed on a plane from New York City, to his ancestral home in Denmark. He later returned as “Christine”Jorgensen, following transgender surgery, becoming an overnight celebrity. Jorgensen insisted, “No one is a 100 percent male or female.” Generations later, the LGBTQ lobbyist declared war on world-renowned Johns Hopkins, former Chief Psychiatrist, Dr. John McHugh, a leading mental health expert speaking out against radical “gender ideology.” He’s the most celebrated mental health researchers in the past thirty years on the subject. Drawing their fire because he debunks the transgender ideology as a “biological meme.” A lone voice in the contemporary “psychiatric wilderness.” read more

“Hi! Now Gimme Your Money!”

By Bradley Harrington

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.” — H.L. Mencken, “In Defense of Women,” 1918–

Once in a while, as I ponder the daily news, I come across a story that reminds me clearly that we are living in Robert Heinlein’s “Crazy Years” after all. Belts may be tightening in lots of places all across our land, Dear Readers, but obviously not here: read more

A Case For Evil

by Mike Pyatt

Mike Pyatt

At the conclusion of WWI, there was a naive movement, that world powers must do whatever it takes to remove the causes for war and conflict, from the earth. Many idealist and humanist mislabeled WWI, “The War to end all wars.” As one of the fathers of science fiction, British writer, historian, and social gadfly, H.G. Wells was considered a prophet by his humanist contemporaries, though he was known primarily for his novels, The War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man, and the Time Machine. He predicted some of the technological advances of the 20th Century. He also wrote about the evils of war, advocating a naive pacifist approach. When war descended upon Europe, he concluded that the German buildup, since the nation’s 1871 unification, was driven by a corrupt industrial and political system, that needed to be eradicated. The unbounded optimism of Western man reached exhaustion, facing his extinction in his own manufactured nobility. read more

A Collection, Not A Collective

By Bradley Harrington

“When you violate the rights of one man, you have violated the rights of all, and a public of rightless creatures is doomed to destruction.” — Ayn Rand, “Atlas Shrugged,” 1957 —

Last week (“’Public Safety’ Vs. Liberty,” WTE, July 9) we took a short glance at Chairman Mao, the world’s leading mass-exterminator, clocking in at 55 to 70 million Chinese citizens dead, all for the public safety. I guess when Mao said that “before a brand-new social system can be built on the site of the old, the site must be swept clean” (“Introductory Note to ‘A Serious Lesson,’” 1955), he wasn’t kidding. read more

Flirting With Divinity?

by Mike Pyatt

Is God’s habitation in our realm as inevitable as silence to a bucolic scene, or the ascending smoke from a dying ember? Or have we descended into a sinister flirtation with the Divine? It wasn’t so in 1941. The day after Japan’s surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, a somber, but resolute President Franklin Roosevelt, after strapping on steel braces to his legs, hobbled awkwardly into the U.S. House chamber. He addressed a joint session of Congress, and asked for a declaration of war against Japan. During times of tumult and travail, most Americans expect our country to prevail victoriously. At the end of Roosevelt’s address, he’d verbalized what most citizens believed, “With confidence in our armed forces, with the unbounded determination of our people we will gain the inevitable triumph. So help us God.” Was it arrogant presumption? Or implacable reliance on His benevolence in our battle against evil? History’s punctuated by God’s intervention in space and time. read more
