    We hate to say it, but another day, another mysterious and unexpected death of a seemingly normal collegiate athlete. As we wrote yesterday, either there is a new focus in media on reporting about the untimely deaths of athletes and young adults, or something very odd appears to be taking place across the country. Jack Madison, a sophomore on the Colorado College men’s tennis team, passed away in his sleep on January 2nd, a new report from the Gazette, published yesterday, confirms. Colorado College vice president and director of athletics Lesley Irvine commented: “We are devastated by the tragic passing...
  • America’s Wealthiest Cities Show We’re Rapidly Becoming a “Mad Max Society”

    Discern Report ^ | 12/18/22 | Michael Snyder
    The largest cities in the United States are becoming cesspools of crime, drugs, violence and homelessness, and no matter what “solutions” our politicians come up with the problems just continue to get even worse. Sadly, this is even happening in the wealthiest cities in the whole country. New York City is the financial capital of the entire globe, and over the past two decades San Francisco has been swimming in giant mountains of tech industry money. But today the streets of both cities look like something out of a post-apocalyptic horror movie. If things are this bad while economic conditions...

    You wonder where the churches are.As American society is awash in new morality, as ageless conventions are toppled and condemned, as the teachings of millennia are dismissed and the very definitions of humanity are changed, where are the shepherds of the Savior’s flock, and what guidance do they give?For the most part, they are passive and silent. Or worse, they have gone over to the side of confusion. But seldom are they heard, and seldom do they lead, and seldom do they seem to be a light of the world.Nowhere do you find the courage and clarity of Isaiah, who...

  • Fauci: Our Society Is Becoming Anti-Science – ‘We Are Experiencing the Normalization of Untruths’

    Outgoing National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that society was becoming anti-science because “untruths” are being normalized through social media. Mitchell said, “With the rise of disinformation and misinformation, are we developing an anti-science animus in society?” Fauci said, “The answer is yes. The short answer to your question.

    If you were to look under the roofs of American homes at random, it wouldn’t take long to find someone who lives alone. By the Census Bureau’s latest count, there are about 36 million solo dwellers, and together they make up 28 percent of U.S. households. Even though this percentage has been climbing steadily for decades, these people are still living in a society that is tilted against them. In the domains of work, housing, shopping, and health care, much of American life is a little—and in some cases, a lot—easier if you have a partner or live with family...

No problem, find a doctor who is willing to treat you for free. You want a free house, no problem, find carpenters and a lumber yard and a plumbing supply joint that is willing to provide you those things for free. JB: You don't know how a society...

    Mayne I'm making mountain out of mole hills and I just wanted to vent on something here on a simple observation I have made on society today versus what it was say from the 1980's and before. I was born in 1966 so I'm 56 years old. As time goes on, I am having more and more trouble making sense of the way the world is going today and I just scratch my head or just end up giving the old "South Park" 1000 meters stare while staving off a mental "Blue Screen of Death." I was going to type...

    Lincoln Project founder Rick Wilson said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that “society” has to “strap up and decide we’re going to push back against” the dangerous Republican Party. Guest anchor Katie Phang said, “Election workers are increasing security around polling places before the midterms. Is this the new reality in America now where we have to have armed guards for people to exercise their right to vote?”
  • Why people prefer unequal societies (people prefer fair inequality over unfair equality)

    Nature Human Behaviour ^ | April 2017 | Christina Starman, Mark Sheskin & Paul Bloom1
    There is immense concern about economic inequality, both among the scholarly community and in the general public, and many insist that equality is an important social goal. However, when people are asked about the ideal distribution of wealth in their country, they actually prefer unequal societies. We suggest that these two phenomena can be reconciled by noticing that, despite appearances to the contrary, there is no evidence that people are bothered by economic inequality itself. Rather, they are bothered by something that is often confounded with inequality: economic unfairness. Drawing upon laboratory studies, cross-cultural research, and experiments with babies and...
  • Violent, unprovoked attacks have New Yorkers on edge: ‘There is something profoundly wrong’

    They are the buzzwords of New York City crime circa 2022: Random and unprovoked. A chilling spate of recent incidents involving innocent victims runs the gamut from a woman savagely beaten inside a Queens subway station to a 17-year-old Brooklyn girl killed by a stray bullet to a Mexican immigrant nearly killed by a sucker-punch outside a Manhattan restaurant. The latest terrifying attack took the life of of a veteran city EMS lieutenant on her way to grab lunch in Astoria this past Thursday, with a schizophrenic stranger knocking her to the sidewalk before stabbing her 20 times for no...

    When I was in college, I read a book by George Gilder, one of the wisest thinkers of the last half-century, titled “Naked Nomads,” which had a deep impact on me. It was about single men and all the pathologies associated with them. For example, Gilder drove home the point that the biggest factor concerning violent crime was that it is overwhelmingly committed by single men. While there was no danger — I would say no chance — that I would commit a violent crime (though I was, at the time, single), this fact along with others in the book...

    The “sexes and the vocations pertaining thereto are not interchangeable,” wrote late Catholic priest Vincent P. Miceli in his 1981 book, The Antichrist: The Final Campaign Against the Savior. Recently republished by Sophia Institute Press, Miceli’s analysis of man and woman and their critical roles in the family remain as relevant today as his previously examined insights into secularism and the leftist cult leader Jim Jones. Miceli noted that “sex is not an accidental characteristic of man and woman. A human person without sex is a monstrous abstraction. Sex entails the very identity of each person; sex plunges to...

    If you don't take collapse seriously, I don't take you seriouslyRegular readers know by now that I am a big fan of the demographic-structural theory (DST) proposed by cliodynamicist historians such as Jack Goldstone and Peter Turchin. The reason I find it so interesting is because of how intellectually satisfying it is. Most theories of history are linear and progressive, and their proponents often struggle to force a progressive narrative onto otherwise cyclical and chaotic series of historical events. Demographic-structural theory, through its explicitly cyclical approach to understanding the rise and fall of empires, not only makes more sense intellectually,...

    Everyone can sense that the political situation we find ourselves in is anything but normal. Yet the language we use to describe current conflicts is a language designed to frame them in the category of politics as usual - only perhaps more so. In speaking about current conflicts, we focus on the surface “issues” that divide us – a record inflation, off-the-charts crime waves in our urban centers, a humanitarian crisis at our southern border. Sometimes we sum it up as a double standard in the justice system that treats violent leftists as “peaceful protesters” and public school parents concerned...

    Let’s put aside, for a moment, the scenes of mayhem on the new 6th Street Viaduct - the street takeovers, the cars spinning doughnuts and the thrill seekers scaling the arches - since the visually striking bridge opened this month. Those problems will probably be fixed soon with the installation of speed bumps, a median strip and fencing. Instead, focus on the crowds of pedestrians, cyclists, skateboarders, Instagrammers who’ve flocked to the bridge and made it their own. Despite less than ideal conditions (the speeding cars and the flimsy “protected” bicycle lanes), the 6th Street Viaduct has become a spot...

    Disturbing video released by the NYPD Sunday shows a man being hit by a car and then robbed as he lay splayed out on the ground struggling to survive. The 39-year-old victim was walking on the sidewalk at 898 East 169th Street in the Bronx when a black, four-door sedan slammed into him around 6:40 a.m. Saturday, according to police. The video shows the victim being thrown into the air before he lands on the street. Two men who were inside the vehicle that hit him then got out and went through his pockets, taking his belongings, cops said.

    I've heard it said more than once now. "We're in a war." We are. The President of the United States has declared war on its citizens. We are in a war for the soul of the country. In violation of Federal law, SCOTUS Justices are being harassed while at dinner. The White House is all in favor of it. In fact, Biden is inciting violence upon on the Supreme Court. Biden: "We can not allow an out of control Supreme Court, working in conjunction with extremist elements of the Republican party, to take away freedoms and our personal autonomy."
