My Spilled Ink
A weekly(?) digest
My writing appears at different places around the internet. This is one reason I have revived the domain. Another is that not everything I might want to write fits at one of the sites where I regularly appear.
Henceforth, weekly-ish annotated link posts will link to my work all around the web, free or paywalled. Also, I plan to start posting paywalled items with a 7-day free reading option here by the end of May. At some point this year, I will begin posting subscriber-only content here, too.
Last weekend, I posted two subscriber-only paywalled articles.
On Saturday, I wrote about supposed victories that end up breaking Russian armies, a theme that resonates in the scenes transmitted from Ukrainian cities like Bakhmut.
On Sunday, I published a digest of recent writing on the topic of gender ideology as an emergent American faith movement. I include a summary of Lucy Tatman’s essay “The Religious Elements of Gender-Identity Ideology: Preliminary Notes” in Issue No. 8 of Radical Notion.
On Monday, I wrote about our old friend the
pedophile ephebophile Ali Akbar/Alexander, who appears to face law enforcement scrutiny at last, having been reported for his sexual grooming of underage adolescent males.
Then I wrote about the looming Ukrainian counteroffensive in very broad strokes to explain how Kyiv is setting up conditions for Russian defeat.
I took a break on Tuesday. On Wednesday, I wrote about my great uncle John and his incredible journey home eight decades after he was lost in an infamous bombing mission during World War II. We will be laying him to rest next month.
On Thursday, I posted this paywalled article about a medieval legend of French national resistance and an ambitious king whose decline began with a woman wielding a hatchet, according to legend.
I took a break on Friday after driving to see Riley Gaines speak in Nashville. Today, Julian Vigo published a piece of mine at Savage Minds. It’s an analysis of the “woke” phenomenon as a “brand cult.” Advertisers have used psychology to sell us products for a century, now they are using Dylan Mulvaney as an avatar for beer as salvation for our consumer sins.
Next week will be quite busy, as I am getting ready for a short vacation.
