Donald Trump Showed Why We Need Unlimited Free Speech

Next time you'll hear somebody urging to censor free speech out of the fear of giving the platform to hateful views, please point to Donald Trump. How else, if not by allowing someone to speak their mind, would we know that somebody is a complete tool?

Does the North Hate the North?

It's not the Conservatives that have a weird abusive relationship with the North and secretly wishes the sea would swallow it, but it's rather the North itself which stifles any attempt of economic revival. But of course, losing an opportunity to talk bad about Lady Thatcher and her Conservative acolytes is a price too high to pay.

I'm Excited About Kim Kardashian's Pregnancy For All the Wrong Reasons

Actually, it would be quite a horrible thing if the Kardashian West family would limit themselves to four kids just because of abysmal name-picking skills. There was a suggestion, however, that a name such as 'Wild' should never be off the table, thus expanding the size of the dynasty even further.

Don't Cry For Me,

Don't Cry For Me, Palmyra

In all seriousness, don't cry for me, Palmyra. If it had been my decision, you would be free of jihadists. Cry for those who supported the policies that enabled your current conquers to become as powerful as they are now.

Why Liberals Don't Care About Religious Freedom?

It seems rather obvious that laws ensuring religious freedom could do lots of good to the cause of gay marriage. The importance of traditional marriage for straight couples is somewhere between 'decreasing,' 'dying' and 'dead.'

I Rejected Black Cabs for Their Price, Now I Reject Them for Their Online Gangsterism

There's one, of course, gang-like cartel still existing in London. Black cabbies are the last remaining fortress of old-fashioned gansterism. They try to terrorise online the living out of you into using their services, which are blindly overpriced and not even in comparison with the most of minicab companies or innovative apps such as Uber or Hailo.

Reading Russia Today for a Week Made Me Believe in Anything

"This is what happens then there is no second opinion" as those filthy and badly painted ads of Russia Today say all across London tube stations. I agree, this is exactly what happens when there's no other voice in an authoritarian country.

The West Is Sending a Message: It's Fine to be a Violent Regime

The depravity of the west is becoming too obvious. We have lost our sense of knowing what is right and wrong. The foreign policy became dominated by the idea of not offending any feelings and being bought into the culture of relativism. Cuba and Palestine are just the recent examples of how easily the west can be forced into the obedience.

The Torture Report Did Nothing Except Endanger Other

The Torture Report Did Nothing Except Endanger Other Countries

I'm absolutely convinced that the report has no value whatsoever. It just confirmed already confirmed allegations from 2009 and put multiple European and Asian partners in danger by the militant fundamentalists and aggressive states in general.

Student Activism Is Run By Selfish Lefties - Shocker?

The fact is that maddening fatuous narcissist left wing zealots run student unions, societies, groups, and the whole activism complex. For them, the primary duty isn't to represent students' interests, rather contrary, it's to ensure that their interests are in tact since it's "for the greater good."

Pontiff at Your Service

If I had to describe the mass euphoria of the second living Pope reign, I would choose the phrase "sales marketing." Never in its modern existence, the Roman Catholic Church was so focused on deceit and ambiguities just to cater for a higher number of current and possible consumers...

Gorbachev, the Pious Fool

By the end of the Cold War, the West has gotten to know a voice of sanity from Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, or "Gorby" as West Germans tenderly called. He was a smart politician, a <em>politician</em> indeed rather than a supreme ruler of the second most powerful superpower equipped with the deadliest weapons of mass destruction.

Kurds Are the New Jews

Kurds is the last remaining sizable population that underwent constant violent injustice, whether by Turkey in the first half of 20th Century or, more recently, by nasty ISIS-like Saddam Hussein's regime in Iraq, which didn't hesitate to shower the population with chemical, weapons mercilessly. However, the Kurds were never allowed to initiate their own completely independent state...

Where Did Pro-Palestine Supporters Go?

Are you now feeling the same contempt towards Egypt and hope the international community will condemn it, while the United Nations produces a report saying that Egypt is a destructive force and most probably committing war crimes? Probably not.

4chan Is the Opium of the People

<em>4chan</em> has always catered to a very narrow group of people: be it manga and anime lovers in the beginning; to sad, angry and aggravated trolls whose premise of privacy is built on the idea that hacking iCloud is the user's fault.
