Braveheart – William Wallace speech

Now that I’m older, I truly understand why “Braveheart” and “The Patriot” were two of my dad’s favorite movies. This gave me goosebumps. Voluntarism and Capitalism. Anarch. Murray Rothbard. Creepy FBI encounter. Advertisements

“Bravery”

Here’s a good poem I wrote in less than a minute. Only bragging because I guess it sells better that way? This poem is about me becoming more of an independent person through decisions and desires. No need to overthink this one. _________________________________________________________________ An unpopular thought. An unexpected joke. A reserve. An expression… A dream. […]

RIP Youtube.

My Youtube channel just got deleted. It was deleted for spam, which I fully admit to. I do not recall exactly how long Youtube kept doing this (days, if not at least a couple of weeks), but it kept recommending me this one specific video from this one specific channel that I was not interested […]

Review of George Orwell’s “1984”

This is one of those books that is hard to do justice with a review. The copy that I read, borrowed from my best friend, has a preface by Walter Cronkite written in 1983, and an afterword by Eric Fromm in 1961. I’ll share a little bit of each of these before I write my […]

Review of “Gerald’s Game” by Stephen King

At first, it might seem odd why a young man, with a critical penchant, would decide to subject himself to a story in which, no doubt, the subject matter would be ripe for critique. Why does a man subject himself to something he hates, only to complain about it? It must be that he actually enjoys the […]

Perspective

Anything that is written, as this is, must come from some perspective. Something that is created must go somewhere. Must have some meaning. There has to be a reason for why the creator created it. It must come from the vision of the creator. The creator wants people to see his end result. He has […]

A Way Out

Never before in my life have I felt more in control of my life. And never have I felt more terrified (well……maybe that’s an exaggeration. I’m sure my recollection of past anxieties is quite understated, now that I’ve given it more than five seconds of thought (it’s odd how sometimes, it’s hard to forget what […]

“Conquering the Demons”

The anxieties of the past Still haunt Devouring the eternally saved soul There is no Heaven on Earth The Devil has you In his grip of worry A torture Created in youth Remaining for a lifetime A light shines But it does not comfort The fear follows it The words They remain The worries Still […]

Other People

The problem that I always have with saying something is “What am I trying to say?” Well, in this piece, I want to discuss “other people” (“other” simply meaning people that aren’t myself). What do I want to discuss about them? And why do I want to discuss “other people”? What types of “other people” […]

On Reading

It seems only fair that, being a writer, I should write something about reading, as writing is meant to be read. I write because things are within me that I desire to get out. The “getting them out” provides a relief and satisfaction to me. And, after that, I desire to have them read by […]
