Leftist Hypocrisy and the Boy Scouts of America

We like to poke fun at some of those who are on the left side of the spectrum for many reasons. Some dress weird, talk strangely, engage in strange mannerisms, and more often than not push an obscene amount of strange new ideas onto civilized society. The most blown up of these new ideas is the concept of self-identification. This most commonly applies to gender, … Continue reading Leftist Hypocrisy and the Boy Scouts of America

The God Emperor and The Great Meme War of 2016

The outcome of the 2016 election came as a shock to many. For those expecting a crushing victory by Hillary Clinton, it was a very unpleasant surprise. On the other hand, Donald Trump’s supporters were rejoicing at what seemed like a miracle. Most pollsters and news sources had projected an easy Hillary victory, with the New York Times and Huffington Post giving her an 85% … Continue reading The God Emperor and The Great Meme War of 2016

Why America is Exceptional

One of the greatest things about our society is that we can get ahead by helping others. Until recent human history, to get ahead you had to help yourself and only yourself. A job which helped others would only keep you down. Bill Gates is the richest person in the world. He gained his wealth through making all our lives better. Blacksmiths were not blacksmiths … Continue reading Why America is Exceptional

Socialism: Mankind’s very own Mass-Extinction event

Socialism. The word has been subject to the utmost controversy since it’s formal introduction into the political spectrum in the mid 1800’s. People fear it, despise it, or embrace it. Wars have been fought over it. The scariest time in American history, the Cold War, was a result of it. Why has socialism taken the world by storm, and why is it subject to so … Continue reading Socialism: Mankind’s very own Mass-Extinction event

What is capitalism

As defenders of free market capitalism, we have to ask ourselves, what is capitalism? In arguments, we often find ourselves in a situation. To use a cliche, is that real capitalism? Strictly speaking, capitalism is the private ownership of the means of production. This contrasts with socialism which is communal, usually through the state ownership of the means of production, but this brings up an … Continue reading What is capitalism

The Failure of Socialism

Has there ever been an economic system that ended in a more spectacular failure than socialism? While the average person in socialist Venezuela lost 17 pounds last year because of food shortages, in America, we are dealing with the problem of too much food. While socialist North Korea is dark at night, Capitalist South Korea is a beacon of the light and success of capitalism. … Continue reading The Failure of Socialism

How leftism has destroyed the legacy of MLK

American society has lived through many interesting (often tumultuous) times across its history. These are including, but not limited to, periods such as the Gilded Age, the Roaring Twenties, the Colonial Age of Enlightenment, our beloved Hippie Movement, and many more. Our day and age is no different. We currently are living through many different ages ourselves, such as the Age of Technology, or The … Continue reading How leftism has destroyed the legacy of MLK

Why The Founding Fathers Were Wrong

The hallmark of our liberal republic is the federal congressional presidency established by the Constitution as a replacement to the Articles of Confederation. The Founders did not completely agree over how the new government should have looked like. Although the consensus at the Constitutional Convention was that there ought to be a distinct legislative and executive branch in order to maintain a separation of powers and divided … Continue reading Why The Founding Fathers Were Wrong

Kyrie Eleison: A Response to Eastern Orthodoxy

First of all, I would like to thank the publishers of The Credible Hulk for granting me the opportunity to write this response to an article that recently appeared on their website, which attempted to present a defense of Eastern Orthodox theology.  It is my intention to respond to their arguments, and explain why Eastern Orthodoxy cannot possibly be the True Church established by Christ. … Continue reading Kyrie Eleison: A Response to Eastern Orthodoxy

Catholicism vs Protestantism: An Orthodox Perspective

My colleagues Chip, Roman, and Sara have kicked off a debate over Catholicism and Protestantism at the Credible Hulk magazine. I would like to give a third, Eastern Orthodox perspective to the debate. For those who don’t know much about the Eastern Orthodox church, here is a quick (but certainly incomplete) brief. The Orthodox Church is a communion of Autocephalous churches who broke away from the Catholic Church in 1054; … Continue reading Catholicism vs Protestantism: An Orthodox Perspective
