Sanctimony & Degeneracy

14 Nov 2020 3 minute read 1 comment Nathan Payne

Sanctimony is a form of degeneracy.  Thinking too highly of oneself is a strong indicator of a degenerate heart and mind.  It is perhaps the last line of defense of degeneracy.  Or maybe the first.  Or maybe the only. Who ever heard of sanctimonious...

Choose Your Madness

Remember the scene in Shawshank Redemption when Brooks kills himself because he can't make it on the outside?  He was a liberal man in a free world.  He couldn't hack it.  Years of deferring his decision-making to outside sources had weakened him to...

Overthinking is Thinking

30 Sep 2020 1 minute read 2 comments Nathan Payne

I have a tendency to overthink things.  It's how you make sure a job is finished.  If you don't overthink, you will miss something.  You might miss something anyway.  Being cavalier about the possibility of a mistake doesn't lessen the potential impa...

America Needs a Hysterectomy

A society based on women’s fear is a loveless, beauty-free wasteland.     Say it again. A society based on women’s fear is a loveless, beauty-free wasteland. A hundred years ago, there was perhaps a need for feminism.  Women couldn’t vote or own prop...

Once upon a time, I used to enjoy writing trippy, epic poems.  I would write them in hotel rooms full of bugs, with bloodstains on the wall, staring out the window at the flashing, crazy city.  The first poem to ever appear in any kind of collection...

New T-shirt design, for those who feel little-to-no actual affinity with the victim-trip practitioners of SMUG LIFE all around them.  It makes sense to feel disenfranchised in the United States today, if you have brains, soul, and some artistic abili...

Nico Riot Sermon (I Don't Follow Sheep)

7 Jun 2020 1 minute read 1 comment Nathan Payne

The following rant by this black woman in New York to a bunch of soft white kids from Neverland is interesting for several reasons, one of which is that it's a perfect example of a free human being surrounded by sheep. All of the people she's talkin...

Fake Christians, Fake Music

I have no idea who these people are.  The reason I don't know who they are is because their disingenuity is visible from outer space.  You can see the Great Wall of China, the Pyramids of Giza, and the falseness of these people's faith and art from o...

Doubt Needs a Doubt

25 May 2020 1 minute read 0 comments Nathan Payne

For years, I wondered about the meaning of the phrase "faith needs a doubt."  I asked somebody about it once, and they explained that without a doubt to overcome, faith can not exist.  In order to believe, it is necessary to have unbelief, and overco...

A Pre-Emptive Indictment of Postmodernism

24 May 2020 2 minute read 0 comments Nathan Payne

I've been on a Shostakovich kick lately, which is the best way to put it, since it in no way implies I am familiar with his work.  I'm not.  But his story is interesting.  He was engaged in a nearly-lifelong fight against Stalinist/Soviet censorship,...
