Let me interpret that for you

A few years ago, when social media platforms began to disrupt normal communication between people, various reporters envisioned a society built upon reputation and curators of information. Fast forward several years, we have sufficient evidence that most people are no longer their curators of content. Worse, they are not even their own thinkers, or even capable of independent thought, but … 

 

A poem for Liberal Leftists

This is one of those posts made to purposefully offend and provoke a response; I said such a thing could be useful in debate. It’s provocative writing like my poem that initiate discussion. It is not a personal attack on the moral character of anyone specifically, nor anyone who identifies as a liberal or leftist. There … 

 

Exporting American free speech as a startup service

If capitalism has taught me anything, it’s that profit motives can be used to protect certain interests, or mitigate certain behaviors. Today we have green initiatives providing tax breaks for ecological considerations. Using an easy example, the demand for paper and wood seems to increase the capitalist’s desire to plant and keep trees — tax … 

 

Islam is not Abrahamic

Some have over-simplified religions so that young people view Islam as an evolution of religion. Many wrongfully believe and spread the theory that Judaism -> Christianity -> Islam which is patently false. This isn’t just an over simplification, it is a fabrication and a terrible lie. There are resources already dedicated to exposing Islam, but I will gloss over that quickly to … 

 

Write now, or forever hold your peace

I write because I enjoy it. Sometimes posts touch on sensitive subjects or may be uninterestingly long, but ultimately my writing is done for my pleasure. This blog isn’t going to change the world, and I don’t expect it to. Will a post, every now and then, be seen by someone who appreciates it? Sure. But not … 

 

Unnecessary ammunition

In the ongoing demonization of men, it remains increasingly difficult to remain silent. My frustrations with liberal media and leftists has been waxing hot. Here is an apparently “viral” story that I will comment on for the sake of nuance, and to demonstrate the unnecessary ammunition stored up and created by sowers of deceit. This is not an … 

 

Truncate an InnoDB table with foreign key restraints

This is a neat little hack I thought I would share, since it became useful to me. The recommended procedure is to use DELETE on rows instead of TRUNCATE which fails on tables with foreign key restraints. However, if you are building an app or designing a database, then TRUNCATE may be the preferred method … 

 

Votes of a wavering nation

Governments are instituted to protect against threats. That people now fear their neighbor, and counter-party voters, is testament to how far we have fallen as a nation. Voting has become a tool of division. So many fall to simple and selfish motives; voting for this or that thing only because it personally benefits them, or it … 

 

Collective consciousness in 2030; fighting to save our next generation from falling away

There are several growing movements against free speech. Ironically, the very thing that allows persons of social justice to express themselves and rally for change in collective thinking — is being labeled as an evil if said “free” speech is not in accordance with their agendas. In other words, it is convenient for social justice warriors to speak freely, attempting to effect change, but … 

 

Statistics are boolean: It will (in practice) be true or false

First and foremost statistical analysis can be useful and helpful. I do not want to come across as saying that statistics are not valuable. They can be very good when taking a macroscopic view. For example, planning a business and using statistics will likely be beneficial. Or doing A/B testing with your products, websites or …
