About my beliefs:

To get a rough idea, see the writers below.

1. Writers I instantly stop reading as soon as I see their names. Almost all their arguments are banal, poorly reasoned or their few well-reasoned arguments are better expressed elsewhere. I don't have enough time left in life to waste life on atrocious arguments:

Jeffrey Sachs, Noah Smith, Andrew Sullivan, Fred Barnes, George Will, Victor Davis Hanson, Charles Krauthammer, Naomi Wolf, Robert Kagan, Noam Chomsky, Cornell West, Noah Millman, Paul Craig Roberts, Michael Moore, Daniel Larison, Walter Williams, Peter Beinart, Bill Gates, Charles Blow, David Brooks, Tom Friedman, Maureen Dowd, Gail Collins, Irving Kristol, William Kristol, Ross Douthat, George Soros, Ramesh Ponnuru, Ben Wattenberg, Joe Klein, Dennis Prager, Mark Ames, Fareed Zakaria, Max Boot, Aaron David Miller, Yasha Levine, Tim Wise, Morton Krondracke, Anrdrea Dworkin, Susan Sontag, Bruce Bartlett, Tyler Cowen, Charles Johnson, John Esposito, Stephen Moore, Rod Dreher, Theodore Dalrymple, Michael O'Hanlon, Mark Perry, Steve Chapman, Karen Armstrong, Mark Thoma, Pamela Gellar, Mathew Yglesias, Gary Becker, Erick Erickson, Frank Rich, Dinesh D'Souza, Francis Fukuyama, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Gregg Easterbrook, PJ O'Rourke, Philip Giraldi, Jonathan Alter, Understanding Society, Allahpundit, Bernard Goldberg, Ezra Klein, Jim Pethokoukis, Melissa Harris-Perry, Kriston Soltis, Kevin Williamson, Michael Moore, Michael Barone, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Matt Drudge, David Broder, Michelle Goldberg, Ed Morrisey, Philip Klein, Rich Lowry, Nick Gillespie, Robert Samuelson, Tim Carney, Richard Cohen, James Carville, Martin Peretz, Jeffrey Goldberg, Karl Rove, Chris Matthews, Juan Cole, James Kirchik, Amity Shlaes, Samuel Goldman, Jonah Goldberg, Florence King, Richard Florida, Dick Morris, Malcolm Gladwell, Leon Wieseltier, Kevin Drum, Fred Kagan

In short, nearly all Green, Republican, Libertarian, Democratic, and Constitution Party politicians and supporters, plus nearly all celebrities. It's astonishing how many well-paid writers can write upteen thousand words without a single good idea. But it's no accident. They are part of our ruling groups bait-and-switch, divide-and-screw practices.

2. Writers sometimes worth reading:

JP Rushton, Thomas Jackson, James Kirkpatrick, David Cay Johnston, Michael Hudson, Jayman, Timothy Taylor, Jared Taylor, Gregory Hood, Christopher Heath Wellman, Joseph Stiglitz, Glen Roberts, Soren Kern, Paul Krugman, Steve Sailor, Robert Reich, Eamon Fingleton, Stephanie Kelton, Joe Firestone, Bill Black, L. Randall Wray, Jim Goad, Michael Lind, Nick Rowe, Dan Froomkin, Robert McIntyre, Joel Slemrod, Greg Palast, Yves Smith, Dean Baker, Judith Rich Harris, Martin Gross, HBD Chick, Matt Taibbi, Goerge Monbiot, Ed Rubenstein, Robert Frank, NerveAgent, Willem Buiter, Meng Hu, Fjordman, Jerry Mashaw, and writers whose names I don't recognize.

Many more I can't think of now. The lists above will be updated.

To summarize: ethical reasoning, anti-militarism, anti-globalism, self-determination, pan secessionism, environmental fairness, ethnoracial fact facing, and pro-producer economics (beneficial consequences mixed with retributive justice, not neoclassical economics).

Since I have no editors or helpers, every post is a draft, subject to revision.

I will write and post as part of my ethical duties.
