Four articles today, from the hardest working man on Substack.

ARTICLE ONE: What Is Culture? Why do I write about it?

In its popular form, I would say culture is the averaging out of insanity.

It’s the result of the quenching of many individual flames.

It’s a default position after all the possible revolutions have been put to bed.

It’s also the unconscious bias that shapes current mechanical styles of thinking about any subject. Especially among those who believe they know everything worth knowing.

An extreme example would be a person who views metaphor as literal fact. He interprets satire as a Reuters news report.

Put all of the above in a large pot, heat and stir, and you see culture.

There’s one more vital step. The seasoning. Today, that involves a host of lunatic notions about race, gender, climate, open borders, elimination of private property, censorship, canceling.

Therefore, I write about culture.

In my 84 years, I’ve seen many budding unique individuals jump off cliffs and float down to absorb themselves in the gooey protoplasm of the crowd and the mob.

If I come across a few of them later, they’ve adopted some massively fraudulent idea about severely limited reality; they’ve allowed that idea to take them over.

Their eyes may be dead or bright and shiny. Either way, they’ve been captured.

Therefore, I write about culture.



—To ramp up the seasoning.

There are different ways to deliver electric shocks to placid pacified systems.

By the way, it took me a long time to realize that delivering them was far more important than explaining why I do. So this article is a rarity.
