Happy Fourth of July

Myths about “systemic racism,” “white supremacy,” and “white privilege” get blown completely to pieces in this latest article by Paul Craig Roberts, easily one of the boldest authors in the online world, who always tries to write the truth as he sees it.

Philosophically, we now clearly inhabit a world that is not just post-truth, but one in which truth and lies are systematically inverted. Every day I give thanks that I no longer work for any academic institution, and never again will.


Happy Fourth of July!

Oh. IPE stands for Institute for Political Economy, Roberts’s own self-funded organization.

About Steven Yates

I have a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Georgia and teach Critical Thinking (mostly in English) at Universidad Nacionale Andrés Bello in Santiago, Chile. I moved here in 2012 from South Carolina. My most recent book is entitled Four Cardinal Errors: Reasons for the Decline of the American Republic (2011). I am the author of an earlier book, around two dozen articles & reviews, & still more articles on commentary sites on the Web. I live in Santiago with my wife Gisela & two spoiled cats, Bo & Princesa.

    Wow. You are completely ignorant. This guy has no clue what he’s talking about. Yes, you are right, it’s post truth, and that’s exactly the kind of truth that you were basing your opinions on here.

    You’re arguing that we’re in a time of post truth and that’s exactly where you reside: in self-proclaimed ignorance.

    Wow. Bye.

    It’s not that you are wrong, it’s just that in your arrogance you have no humility. And it appears you flout your ignorance with threats of power. White power. I think people are accusing you of being wrong. But that’s simply not the case.

    It’s very sad. i’m sorry you live in such fear. Good luck.

    I don’t like to talk to leftists. Experience has taught me it’s a waste of time and bandwidth space, even if there are areas, especially in economic matters, where I guardedly agree with some of them.

    But this guy, whoever he is, can comment without even a hint of irony: he is illustrating the very point I was making.

    And what was that?

    That not just are we in a post-truth world, but that truth and lies have been completely and systemically inverted, to a level that would have shocked even Orwell.

    White power? Whites who live in the U.S. (I don’t, thank God) don’t have and aren’t seeking power as a group, whatever this means outside the various past and present collectivist fantasylands.

    These days whites are seeking to be left the hell alone, to go about their business in peace and not be assaulted randomly in the streets or have their businesses burnt to the ground by Black Lies Matter and Antifa rioters (not that the latter are bright enough to distinguish … they have stupidly burnt black-owned businesses to the ground, too).

  4. Steve,
    How are you? Are you still in Chile?
