Is All Dialogue Across the Political Spectrum Hyped Hyperbolic Hysteria That Deliberately Ignores Context?

One thing you’ll notice if you waste time on social media – Twitter in particular is that everyone is working themselves to the point of hysteria on any topic that gets somewhat controversial. This doubles if its political and there’s at least two different distinct ways of thinking about an issue that fundamentally disagree with each other.

Recently it’s all been about a Somalian refugee Muslim congress women Ilhan Omar if I’m not mistaken. Her and her supporters and Trump and his have been doing the usual twitter attacks. Trump found some clip of her “downplaying” the 9/11 attacks. Honestly it’s taking what she said of out context.

She wasn’t defending the terrorism, she was trying to make a distinction as well as call attention to her belief that Muslims here are tired of being viewed and treated with suspicion. I loathe linking to sites like NYT and sometimes The Atlantic, but this is a good illustration of how widespread our hysteria is becoming. (Granted, I think she and Muslims here are treated quite well – considering how they would and are treated in places like China, India, and even Muslim countries. In other countries, they don’t care about accusations of “Islamaphobia,” and it certainly won’t cost you your job. That said, I get her point. )

Now considering she and her “supporters” do the exact same thing all the time to Trump and #MagaSupporters, I suppose it’s all fair game at this point. Goose for the gander and all that. It’s just another hysteric exchange where context doesn’t matter- deliberately yet again. We see it all the time. It’s victims are varied, across all spectrum and politics, nuance doesn’t matter, and it’s only going to get worse. Essentially, it doesn’t matter what you actually say anymore; merely it just matters what your detractors want it to mean. You just have to hope their platform isn’t too big and widespread. Hyperbole and hysteria are our new norm.

In the wake of this newest Twitter based outrage, it’s spawned the usual #IStand hashtags. This one is #IStandWithIlhanOmar with a varied mix of hysteric responses, a few genuine critics, and plenty of hypocrites whose twitter feeds reveal them doing the same deliberate out-of-context attacks on the orange Hitler and his deplorables. What’s flabbergasting to watch is how this hysteria continues to replicate and multiply itself at incredible speeds – almost like a pandemic plague organism.

Tons of tweets defending Omar all hype up that she’s in incredible physical danger because of Trump’s tweet. She’s getting death threats! On the internet! It’s not as if people routinely exchanged online death threats over things as meaningful as clashes between Cardi B and Niki Minaj over social media. Seriously, it’s hard not to see at least one death threat over the most benign and stupidest things on social media and the internet in general.

Of course, it’s exploited for political purposes to whip up the base SPLC style to get donations going. Ironically in this case it’s the side that’s always fomenting about fear and accusing the “other” side of exploiting it. It’s not “fear” when it your tribe – it a justified response! Observe some of these tweets:

What? Safety and Liberty are entirely different concepts. (Too much safety means less liberty – to paraphrase Ben Franklin.
We make a big deal of death threats when it’s score political points, despite the fact death threats happen all the time, everyday, for the smallest and most innocuous of disagreements and often don’t fall into the “ist”, “ism”, “phobia”, etc. Someone dissed your music choice, boyfriend, pet, city, sports team, etc. I’ve seen death threats for everything.

What’s really ironic – besides these folks pretending this is a call to violence – is that Omar is in very little ACTUAL PHYSICAL danger in the US. Perhaps there’s exceptions in major urban sanctuary cities with diversity, multiculturalism, tolerance, safe spaces but are strangely plagued by high amounts of violence and crime. If Omar was actually traveling the roads alone – or even with family – in Somalia or neighboring Kenya and even Ethiopia, then perhaps her safety might actually be at risk. I’m still not sure how her intersectional feminism on her profile would appeal to her fellow “POC” if they came across her unprotected on those roads.

Sure the NZ mosque massacre might be an actual example of “Islamophobia” being deadly, but its a drop in the bucket considering the most recent mosque bombings and attacks by Muslims on one another. Strangely, no one gives a shit when Shia and Sunni kill each other, but if it’s a white dude it’s suddenly a much bigger deal and the killing are somehow more reprehensible and worthy of condemnation and attention.

Yet again it all boils down to political exploitation of “fear” and the usual tribes.

A word of warning though: Be careful before you retweet and tweet. The nature of the platform intends to make sooooo easy to simply tweet without any research on whatever controversy is trending. Obviously today’s internet users aren’t interested in nuance and it ensures Twitter is devoid of it. 99% of the time, there’s going to be more to the story. However it takes time to research and investigate. Good luck with that today.

Re-Thinking Our Certification and Training Society.

Training in the Office

One thing I’ve noticed in the last few years across various industries and workplaces is that many workers are hampered by something this buzzword concept you always hear a lot about, “Training.” In theory it’s the be all, end all. Struggling? You need more training. Promotion? More training. Attempt to troubleshoot? More training is needed first. Want to problem solve a bit more? You need this certification. It’s a disaster and monster’s own creation. It’s become worse then just a vague buzzword.

Years ago I was looking to move up the ladder a bit as a 3rd shift stocker, at a grocery store – perhaps take on more responsibility, place some orders, do inventory, etc. My manager didn’t mind the idea, but mentioned that you needed to take some classes on the computers in the back of the store to make a bit more money and move up. I remember thinking to myself, “What and how does training courses on a computer help me better in my current role?” Obviously, it didn’t.

It wasn’t just there. I worked at a big box home improvement store with the same emphasis on training courses on a computer. None of them had anything to do with mixing paint or learning more about “wall coverings” – basically everything interior and exterior painting related. That was on top of having to meet corporate requirements to have these training courses completed by a mandated date regardless of peak hours and the season. If it didn’t get done, our managers got threatened. Our much emphasized and lauded customer service would suffer because of “training”. Yep, all that for training and to get a rubber stamp. (In hindsight, it felt like those courses were all about reducing liability risks at the store.)

To do anything outside the normal work criteria for your position or role, you must have that training – otherwise stay in your lane as it’s the safest option. It also ensures you never build that much job knowledge making you easily replaceable; just another cog in the machine. Convenient right? It’s everything that’s wrong with today’s approach to generating necessary skills for success in today’s workplace.

Now sure, I get that and why “training” is the golden bullet. In today’s liability risk-adverse workplace, a wrong answer might end up costing the company money or the wrong kind of attention. So to minimize this you are given as little room-to-work outside your box as possible. Encouraging ideas where you can take on additional responsibility, troubleshoot, or exhibit too much helpful information might be a liability issue. Can’t have that for all sorts of factors involved.

Instead you get additional training. Yep. Amazing is how great this buzzword looks great to outsiders, shareholders, the managerial class, and even customers who assume the more training you have – the better. Truth is that too many people with plenty of “training” can’t think their way out of ground level complications , troubleshoot, problem solve, or out of a card-board box for that matter. I guess that’s part of the point.

At my work I lament that there is so much more I could do, but am unable because it’s outside my “role” and I’m of course not trained for it – even though I’m already doing it and plenty more. Again, I get why but it’s frustrating and goes to show that inefficiencies are constantly perpetuated by places which keep sending out the usual corporate emails that laud and enthusiastically proclaim how much they are doing to make everything more… efficient.

Writing this, I feel somewhat irritated and irked with the way the entire “training” concept is applied these days. Is it just me? Is this something other people are starting to notice? Of course, there’s definitely a legitimate purpose and need for applicable training and improvement to one’s position, but what’s key is that actually APPLIES to what you do. Too often today, that’s just not the case.

Rant over?

Predictability Determines the Success of Human Capital

The Z-man had a post about human capital and if people are better of today than in the past. He theorizes both yes and no and about genetics playing a part, besides the Pinkerton analysis that the decline of interpersonal violence means we are better off. (I do think Pinkerton makes a good point on that subject.)

My thoughts however diverged in a different direction from his initial post. There’s a key element to human capital that we tend to overlook; predictability. I’ll try to hastily summarize it here and perhaps better think through it for the future.

So why does predictability matter?

The more predictable your local environment, situation, workplace, neighbors, laws, and daily life are in general, the better off you will be. Knowing that your farmland is NOT going to be burned by invaders,makes it far easier and logical to make plans for the future such as planting crops, crop/field rotation, etc.

You know there is less risk. That’s a big deal in terms if you have limited time and resources. Back in the day, alot of people didnt live past 45 and had limited resources. They had to plan their families future with that in mind. You try that all of that without the convenient crutches our modern society offers us today.

For instance, if you know that an invading army isn’t going to burn down your home, you can invest in it and the village/city you live in. That’s definitely a big deal. You might even build furniture, create a sculpture, build roads, walls, etc. The Mongols aren’t coming through to devastate the countryside, so you know you can go for a walk and even trade in the next town. Commerce can commence. Capital can flow.

Our intelligence may be declining, but our capital continues to grow in certain aspects with technology making many daily tasks easier as well as making many aspects of production quicker and easier. (Imagine constructing a building 500 years ago vs now and the difference in the availability of tools.)

This all assumes predictability though. With the decline of social trust – and all the various factors that contribute toward that loss of trust – the world becomes less predictable. Those factors can be everything from “diversity” to the globalist push for open borders to the internet revealing human nature’s apparent weakness for fake news and social media lynch mobs fueled by appealing and exploiting our base emotions such as anger.

Some aspects of predictability aren’t as predictable – pun intended – or at least as flushed out.

Modernity has also reversed predictability in aspects of culture and society. That matters. No one is fiddling on the roof anymore. Divorce, family separation, and children growing up in various different homes is becoming the norm – which it certainly wasn’t just 100 years ago.

Assuming your parents are actually married, which is about 50% likely now, you really dont know if they will stay together – something that was almost assured barely 100 years ago. Apparently that’s now more true of the elites and upper classes instead of the working class and poor who arguably need that marital stability the most.

Men, women, and families knew for the most part what to expect when it came to family stability. That’s no longer the case with part of the blame lying in no fault divorce laws regardless of intention. Some of the unforeseen consequences now result in families where often there is no father to guarantee stability. He can after all be undermined by the numerous other partners the mother may have. (The reverse may happen, but 90% of custody lies with the mothers.)

I’m a bit exhausted by hearing MRA talking points and the rage of MGTOW/Incel types, but unpredictability in cultural and societal assurances that you as the father wont be divorce raped, reduced to seeing your kids every other week, possible child support, etc doesn’t exactly provide incentives for the peter pan video game-playing-man childs we hear about to lay down roots and get busy working full time jobs to help fuel the tax base.

Bottom line is that it’s just another form of unpredictability with consequences for our society we are just starting to understand. To make that unpredictability even worse, a “culture war” adds fuel to it’s wildly spread fires as people start to lose a firm grasp of the social implicit scripts for daily interaction with each other.

What may have been comedic harmless fun in the past may be dug up in your 1980 year book by a twitter lynch mob, cost you your current job, and possibly endanger your ability to pay your mortgage and put food on the table for your family. Even video footage and pictures are now easily manipulated to drive whatever narrative one may wish about a person or an event which manifested in horrid fashion via the #CovingtonGate incident.

That’s just yet another aspect of the current unpredictability which keeps getting more volatile and scary. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great time to be alive and I’d choose today’s unpredictability over that of just a few centuries ago. But today’s challenges are a series of unfortunate events with stacking and cascading unpredictability with consequences for society we should start grappling with – or at the very least and quite ironically attempting to plan and accommodate for. When life gives you lemons, adapt.

Elderly Wisdom: Realizing You Were Never As Smart As You Thought You Were.

I suppose this happens when you get older, get married, hit that magic 30, grow some gray hairs in your fatherly beard, and of course have some kids. For others it just a slow unraveling of the established wisdom you learned as a kid through “young” adulthood.

My kids – toddlers or not – when at restaurants weren’t going to use our phones to entertain themselves to stop them from tantruming and screaming. They weren’t going to toys in Walmart when they threw tantrums. (Yea I was definitely wrong on that one.) You have a specific way of thinking about your present circumstances and a supposed plan for the future.

One thing I’ve realized in the last few years coming off my self identified edgelord time – if it can even be called that – is that I don’t know as much as I thought I did. This realization applies to all aspects of life. I’m in a different season of life now and not only have my circumstances changed, but this isn’t 2006 or 2008 anymore.

You think you’ve reached the peak of your understanding and how things really work. You have it all figured out. I was an ardent libertarian, door-mat nice guy who didn’t get the girl, et cetera. I’d read everything I needed to and basically had arrived at the mountain top. Then you start to notice holes in your perfect utopian plateau.

This doesn’t mean I become jaded, miserable, depressed, or even necessarily resigned to a dismal future of some sort. It just means I’ve developed a bit better understanding of how the world ACTUALLY works, rather then some of the lofty idealism that fuels your youth.

When I was a younger buck, I loved controversy because it was exciting, thrilling, and often brought some spark to the usual boring tedium and routine of life. Yes, it does make for exciting stories. It made forums more lively and often encouraged people to engage in off-game forums once you irked them enough to respond. That was 2008.

Real-life however doesn’t necessarily translate similar results, especially in 2019. Controversy now is often bad for your personal, relationship, and economic health in a culture dominated by social media trending hashtags. Sure, plenty of people don’t care. I admire them. Those that do though can make other’s lives hell and they often do because misery loves its company.

That’s both a blessing and a curse.

My wife for one hates politics, drama over culture war stuff, et cetera. It’s forced me to stop paying so much attention to these matters. It’s driven me to simply not care or invest as much as I used to with the outrage of the day. Honestly I feel that much better for it.

I look around at the other “normies” around me and I notice they have their own issues in life to work through, but they are that much happier. Perhaps that’s a key lesson in and of itself. Sure some things are worth fighting for, but when you get older you finally start to grasp what those things are. Often they really aren’t what you wasted much your time on before. (Granted you have to make mistakes to learn from them.)

There’s always something new in the 24/7 hour news cycle, but your kids are only toddlers once. Time spent with them is far more important, valuable, and rewarding then time spent leaving troll comments, arguing on social media, or at some protest. There are better uses of my time.

I still care about understanding the Truth and much of what I’ve found and uncovered in the last few years has made me question just about everything I thought I knew already (No, I’m not a conspiracy theorist). I loved reading history as a kid, and now I wonder how much of what I read was simply the victor’s narrative of events.

Perhaps that all sounds vague, but I’ve had my own Tucker Carlson moment on quite a few issues now – and that goes all ways on the political and cultural spectrum. (Including one similar to his own thoughts in that now famous monologue.) Perhaps single payer isn’t such a bad idea. Maybe the free market needs some regulations. Open borders may not be the best thing for the country.

What I do with this all that uncovered knowledge and realizations is what matters. Hopefully I don’t squander it. One thing I’ve noticed in some of the “manosphere”, Red Pill, edgelord, SJW, woke, et cetera communities is what happens to people once they think they are on to something , their entire life’s purpose becomes and consumes them. It becomes their identity.

Yea I get it. However I notice these same people end up becoming Nietzsche monster from the abyss they’ve constantly looked, fought, attacked, and obsessed over. Look at what happens to them over time. Do you really want that? If you briefly browse through their social media profiles, you’ll notice they see enemies, ists and isms, misery, oppression, misogyny, “Red Pill truths”, and problems everywhere all the time.

It’s one reason these same people complain they are constantly depressed, filled with anxiety, and even have panic attacks because in addition to dealing with the increasing stresses of the modern internet age, they add additional layers of supposed responsibility on their shoulders.

Sure alot of it includes virtue signaling on social media and on-the-ground activism, but it’s very difficult to always be perfect and with out ever “sinning” in today’s charged climate. One wrongly interpreted remark and the mob is after you. Since forgiveness is no longer a valued aspiration in our post-Christian society, there is no possibility of amends and moving forward. It’s quite scary. Everyone is throwing the first stone and plenty of them.

It’s obvious when you think about it that you don’t want to be like that, but the slope is far more slippery than we realized in the dial-up days of the internet. Perhaps this will all pass, but time neglected with family and close friends will not. Priorities, right?

Sure, be aware of the current situations and events of the day so you are always prepared for what may happen. Be aware of the newest outrages and how best to deal with them if they ever happen to yourself or friends and family. Don’t obsess over them though. Certainly, we live in an age of outrage.

That doesn’t mean we need to dwell in that outrage, fuel it, and become it. I wish had stressed this to myself sooner. Some people consider it to be a form of unplugging, and perhaps it is. The world goes on though in the 24/7 news cycle to the next day’s outrage. Remember that in evaluating the importance of each day’s insanity. Just make sure to sit down, take a sip of coffee, and relax in the meantime.

#Gillette Shows Us The Timeless Activity of Wrestling Is Apparently Toxic Masculinity

Lost in the twitter chaos and YouTube backlash to that Gillette commercial – now the 5th most down voted video in YouTube history is something that really leaps out and grabs you by our apparent toxic natures:

Take a second look. No, it’s not that this commercial doesn’t actually bother discussing anything about shaving.

Catch that? The rolling around in the dirt, trying to get the best position and hold? It’s quite an ancient and historied activity throughout many cultures across the world since the beginning of time. Wrestling. In all of it’s forms. Olympians of old and new, rituals, state competitions, any old tussle in the backyard; it’s apparently a demonstration of the ever widening examples of toxic masculinity.

For This New Year: Hug Your Woke Neighbor, Student, and Activist.

Everyone apparently sets New Years resolutions on Faceberg to supposedly motivate themselves and look good while doing it to the applause of others trying to do the same thing. A few weeks later and no weights have been lifting, diets undertaken, hobbies started, repairs and construction began, et cetera. We have all been there, done that, and some of us will do the exact same thing again.

However, I have a better idea.

I’ve already seen the smorgasbord of dumb people doing dumb things, specifically the woke SJW types, activists, and those whose entire purpose and drive in life makes them chronically unhappy. We of course solemn shake our heads in unison over the latest meltdown and very potent demonstration and manifestation of that unhappiness and resulting rage and bitterness. It was after all inevitable. Calling out injustice “everywhere” and every new ist and ism that rears its systematic oppressive head takes it toll on one’s sanity and ability to enjoy life.

Sure we can all laugh, point, berate, and all the usual responses. Kick em when they are down Eric Holder style. They deserve it right? They made their own bed, now they can lie in. That however just keeps the usual echo chambers echoing and brimming with all too common schadenfreude for the various social media addicts sharing it daily. Honestly, I’m tired of it. Well it’s time for a change; it’s the “current year” after all.

Give these miserable miserly lonely miscreants a hug. Seriously, they need it. Let it be like when the Germans, French, and English called a truce for Christmas day and sang songs together over a good smoke; from a deplorable bigoted ist/ism like yourself to a woke, smart, socially aware on-the-right-side-of-history, non-gendered activist in need of some love.

I’m serious. Or at least some kind words if they look like they may consider a hug to be sexual assault. (You know the type.) Let them know, they are gonna be fine and that their recent offense isn’t that big of a deal.

Consider these woke folks to be stuck in extra secure shrink wrap. Whenever something tries to unravel a strand, the overall wrap gets even tighter. Stuck in an incoherent worldview that constantly clashes with reality  the way they wish the world was, they end up upset, confused, miserable, depressed, and often lonely – basically everything that involves being plagued by mental health issues. Trump’s election is one obvious example of this.

Occasionally some reach a point where the shrink wrap snaps entirely freeing them from their cocoon, but life isn’t fair and plenty of them remain trapped. We’ve already come to a point in the “culture war” where logic no longer matters – specifically to those woke types who can dismiss glaring conflicts with their worldview as ist, ism, phobia, oppressive, colonial, patriarchal et cetera. You can’t argue with cult members, so stop trying.

Appeal to their emotional side instead. It’s the dominant means of persuasion in our era and the best way to establish a bond with someone.

There’s a reason why most advertisements we see are all based on how we feel or trying to make us feel a certain way. The feel and taste of that cold bud lite, driving that sleek fast and luxurious Mercedes or rough and touch Chevy truck, how you can look with this newest razor or excellent lipstick. Well, absorb the lesson from their playbook and give it a well meaning embrace.

It’s not just for them – who are burned out and need the reprieve from politics and the culture war- but for you too in the Dissident Right.

This suggestion to appeal to their emotions almost sounds facetious and borderline manipulative, but we aren’t trying to harness our inner dark triad Machiavelli. This is sincere. Constantly being focused on the what’s wrong with the world and staring into all the injustices is similar to staring into Nietzsche abyss and becoming the very monster you see. At a certain point even the most ardent party member holding the record for denouncing his neighbors and comrades is denounced himself and sentenced to the gulag.

You can be there when that happens and considering what was acceptable just 5 years ago, it’s inevitable that plenty of people are going to be eaten by their own tolerant tribe. They will be upset, shocked, and suddenly starting to peer through those newly formed cracks.

So show them what life is like beyond the cracks of their basement walls ; some actual damned happiness and enjoyment of life. Start with the small things in life. You might not be able to buy your wife a Lamborghini, but a $1 bar of chocolates let’s her know she’s in your thoughts. It’s the same principle for our woke friends.

Slowly by small actions build those tears in the shrink wrap. You never know what incident could come about each time until there is that hopeful snap. Life is short. It’s hard to see how much of what happened yesterday will matter 30 years from now in comparison to your children and future grand-children.

Sure, the long game and what happens today is important to their future and yours, but don’t let the worries of today destroy the future happiness and “life-well-lived” sense of tomorrow. If that happens, no one has really “won.”

Supporting A Family With a Low Income.

In this post, I’m going to break quickly break down my income, expenses, and financial situation to show what can and can’t be done.   Question is, can you do it?

One of the biggest hurdles and objections we always hear from those in their 20s and 30s is that it’s financially impossible to get married, have kids, find somewhere to live – whichever order that comes in.   Yeah, I get it as I am living it.  Regardless of what part you are at, the stress is always there.

Now I know you’ve also heard this before, but truth is that very few are often prepared to have kids unless they were born into a trust fund, our ruling class elites, or into very well-off families.   Yet somehow all those excluded from those esteemed and wealthy circles somehow manage.   So the real question boils down to their quality of life as they manage the day-to-day grind, stresses, unexpected hard situations, job demands and flexibility, etc.

Eating a Ham Sandwich Is a Revolutionary Act in the Current Year

https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQqEpeY5HJrSYWGfhmHDD-kpBbw_fsDQd3BtMCipRoRLZ9sKFcW

George Orwell said that telling the truth in a time of deceit is a revolutionary act.  Of course this quote speaks for itself to us in the Dissident Right and any deviant deplorable with a working knowledge of actual history, but there’s much more to Orwell’s statement then meets our keen eye.   In fact, it’s quite pertinent to our “current year”.

Yes, eating a ham sandwich or foodstuff whether modified like a Frankenfood burger from the villainous Monsanto to the vegan activist barista brewing a cup of supposedly ethically sourced coffee beans picked by child slaves in the war torn Congo.   

It really doesn’t take much these days, especially when you can spam social media with the food you just gorged on at Chic Fil A or one of Ben & Jerry’s social conscious ice cream flavors for 8$ meant to impress people on your Facebook feed you think are your friends.

Thinking Aloud: Lying Low and Building The Trenches

A crazed Nazi, Robert Bowers, who used Gab – and apparently Facebook and Twitter finally snapped after obsessing and hating the Jews for years upon end.  “Screw your optics, I’m going in,” is his last post on Gab that is now living on in meme infamy before he shot up a synagogue. 

Gab however would suffer further for Bower’s posts and for the posts of all the other apparent “white supremacists/Nazis” who frequent the platform.  It’s hosting service would drop it, GoDaddy would purge it’s domain, and Paypal would refuse to do business with it anymore, and Medium would ban it. Mainstream media  and crybullies from the Washington Compost to the New York Slimes pumped out articles bashing Gab and rejoicing in it’s demise cause “hate speech” – whatever that means anymore.

Lost Cogs In A Global Machine: Thinking About Identity In The Dissident Right

Part 1

The Rotting Stink Clawing Away At Us

Author’s Note: This article will be updated, edited consistently, and possibly republished as I focus my thoughts and ideas as time goes on.  I’m not an intellectual nor an amazing writer. I’m just some guy trying to flush out what plagues our modern existence. Thoughtful genuine critique is welcome.   This long post is divided into two parts with the second focusing on ideas to forge a new mythos and identity.

Something is wrong with modern society. We can feel it in our bones. It chills us like a sinister X- Files conspiracy in which our souls and spirit have been stolen away. We can smell the rot abounding and growing in their absence and we know its more than just the curse of a bizarre post-modernism that’s permeated our modern lives.

The post-Cold War framework we evaluated, measured, and determined our identities no longer holds weight. Useless is the “left vs right” and “liberal vs conservative” paradigms that culture, politics, and even daily life were seen through.  It’s been rendered obsolete by our new digital age and a “new” set of problems festering for decades behind the scenes that have finally surfaced.

Almost everyone regardless of their political affiliations can see that the world around is falling apart.  We are reaping the seeds we’ve sown in the past all the way from the French Enlightenment to the Post-Christian West as our substituted gods have started to crumble.
