The Welding Shut of the American Mind

By Ben Hunt | September 21, 2020 | 27

The closing of the American mind is evolving into its next stage: the welding shut of the American mind.

What’s the difference between closing and welding shut? A closed door can be opened. A welded shut door cannot. We can’t save the minds already lost. We can only prevent our OWN minds from being welded shut.

And we can. Together.

Mailbag – Lucifer’s Hammer Edition

By Ben Hunt | September 11, 2020 | 8

It’s been a full year since I wrote my last Mailbag note, which is kinda pathetic.

Well, better late than never. Reader comments and emails following our publication of Lucifer’s Hammer have been amazing, and it would be a disservice to the Pack if I didn’t collect some of them here. Enjoy!

The Projection Racket (Part 1)

By Rusty Guinn | September 14, 2020 | 23 Comments

Some of us are uncomfortable with BITFD, and that’s OK. Small-c conservatives should be uncomfortable. Small-l liberals should be uncomfortable.

They should also get on board.

This is a series about why.

We the People? We the Pack.

By Ben Hunt | July 14, 2020 | 21

I still believe this will be our finest hour.

By Ben Hunt | July 8, 2020 | 45

Defund the police? No.

Demilitarize and Deunionize? Yes.

Here’s how we use narrative to start taking back our world from the culture-porn merchants on the left and the right.

Police reform is just the start.

Harrumph!

By Rusty Guinn | July 7, 2020 | 8

There is an emerging narrative structure that places a lot of demands on us as citizens – and justifiably so.

But the claim that “silence is complicity” becomes something else entirely when we redefine silence as the failure to say exactly what we demand.

What is Permissible

By Rusty Guinn | June 24, 2020 | 6

The slow wave that has moved America’s largest asset owners from direct positions in American companies to indirect pools of passive ownership has been a good thing for costs and diversification. It has, however, contributed to our present breakdown in corporate governance.

The past revolutions to fix this have failed for predictable reasons. Future revolutions don’t have to.

Self Assured Destruction

By Ben Hunt | May 30, 2020 | 31

Our leaders have botched the Covid-19 war, and we are defenseless against a now endemic disease.

15,000 to 20,000 Americans officially sick. 500 to 1,000 Americans officially dead.

Every day.

The free world does not easily survive a globally endemic Covid-19.

A New Gilded Age

By Rusty Guinn | May 24, 2020 | 22
