Tipper Gore Versus Burning Man

I spend my life on the political left and usually find myself on the libertarian side of it. One of the first articles I posted on this website was The Death of the Libertarian Left. There is a huge divide on the left between the libertarians and the not. Those who want Woodstock and TheContinue reading “Tipper Gore Versus Burning Man”

The Death of Eccentricity

Recently, I was reading Jonathan Haidt’s dissertation from 1992 entitled “Should you eat your dog?” A paper that covers an issue very important to many people on the spectrum. It focuses on the morality of harmless offenses that are considered offensive. Now, I will avoid using the term harmless in favor of the word eccentricContinue reading “The Death of Eccentricity”

Is The Zoomer Mind Coddled?: Answering the Gen-Z Bashers Most Common Critique

It has often been argued that the Zoomer generation has been spoiled and demand everything be their way and this has attributed to helicopter parents, safety guidelines, the campaigns against bullying, and the abolition of corporal punishment. While there is truth to the idea that the modern world has been coddled overly, it isn’t becauseContinue reading “Is The Zoomer Mind Coddled?: Answering the Gen-Z Bashers Most Common Critique”

The Passions and the Prefrontal Cortex in Politics

                Antagonism in politics is an issue that has plagued the discipline since it first arose. Throughout history, to what degree we should empathize with our opponents has been controversial. Furthermore, to what degree emotion should be balanced with science is also. These are very related issues since without the balance of science, the humanContinue reading “The Passions and the Prefrontal Cortex in Politics”

My City: A Charlestonian on the 5th Anniversary of the Emmanuel Nine

                As a Charlestonian, I consider the Emmanuel Nine to be unfair to my fair city since Dylann Roof was not from Charleston, he was from Columbia. It sends the message that Charleston is a right-leaning city when Charleston is a left-leaning city. It combined with Southern Charm and Reckless and other items of mediaContinue reading “My City: A Charlestonian on the 5th Anniversary of the Emmanuel Nine”

Extroverted on the Spectrum: A Long Saga of Cosmopolitan Friendliness

So far, I’ve written a lot about being Asperger’s and being among the various neurological minorities that claim me as a member.  For this article, I will write about what it feels like to be interested in humans when one is unlike them. Most people are interested in their kin group, their friends, and fewContinue reading “Extroverted on the Spectrum: A Long Saga of Cosmopolitan Friendliness”

Dethroning Regina George: How to Redistribute Social Capital

Before on this website, I have written articles about the realities of being bullied for a disability, many of which people wouldn’t guess. Within those, I wrote about how anti-bullying policies tend to not be effective for various reasons. First, in Circus Monkey bullying that the bullying is consensual and to separate the victim andContinue reading “Dethroning Regina George: How to Redistribute Social Capital”

Liberty or Death: My Rebel Days at Wando High School

                As I say in the introduction to my comedy page, there are two equal and opposite approaches to politics: comedy and tragedy. If the homepage to this website is an indication, I’m childish enough to rewrite tragedies. I usually write happy endings and I conduct my life with a defiant silliness. It’s not justContinue reading “Liberty or Death: My Rebel Days at Wando High School”

Platonic Friendships: The Asperger’s Guide to Fraternal Love

While dating on the spectrum may be a juicier topic, the issue of platonic friendships is probably more important. Maslow was wrong about the degree to which sex is important to mental health but friendship is very important. Yet, sadly, friendship is more complex than just making friends. Friendship is the most important type ofContinue reading “Platonic Friendships: The Asperger’s Guide to Fraternal Love”

Charleston is Burning: The Student Council is Organizing the Response

                Charleston, my beloved city, is in transition between the South and Globalism. Yet, while its costumes are becoming more liberal. While the streets don coffee shops, spinning classes, and a variety of ethnic foods that the South has never been known for. It still manages to lack competence in astounding ways. The institutions faceContinue reading “Charleston is Burning: The Student Council is Organizing the Response”
