I've just read 'Kill all Normies'.
The book is a critique of modern internet political culture and its really interesting. It looks at the origins of the alt right and its toxicity, whilst also being critical of Tumblr style identity politics. Interesting stuff.

Are there too many posts about Trump?
Obviously he can't be ignored completely because he is the actual President of the actual United States and IMO he is abysmal for multiple reasons. Really though? He wants the oxygen of the publicity and he is a troll. He uses the dead cat stra...

Is violence ever defensible in politics.
I think it can be as long as two provisions are met: 1) There is no viable alternative strategy. 2) The recipients are themselves violent. I just don't think pacifism can work unless there is a peaceful democratic route to change.

What is globalism and what do you think of it?
I hear 'globalism' being used as a term from Trump supporters who see the fight within the Republicans as being between the 'globalists' (mainstream Republicans) and the 'nationalists' (Steve Bannon fans). This always se...

Which publication and/or which writers do you think best represent your views and why?
I used to be a Guardian reader and I still am but I had a specific reason for falling out with them and I feel my views are better represented by certain UK independent-left news sources. I agree with The Canary but its terrible and reads like a soci...

Is it truly possible to have a non-biased media?
My own view is that it isn't possible to be unbiased but some sources have higher journalistic standards and integrity. All media and all language carries values and assumptions within it, often unacknowledged and sometimes at a subconscious lev...

Should Spain pay homage to Catalonia?
Things have just been escalated by the Rajoy Government in Madrid. Catalan regional autonomy has been suspended and direct rule imposed. It's like the US federal government suspending the legislature of a major state. Nothing like this has happe...
