Paganism: Based or Not>Modern paganism, also known as contemporary paganism and neopaganism, is a term for a religion or a family of religions which is influenced by the various historical pre-Christian beliefs of pre-modern peoples in Europe and adjacent areas of North Africa and the Near East. Although they share similarities, contemporary pagan movements are diverse and as a result, they do not share a single set of beliefs, practices, or texts. Scholars of religion often characterise these traditions as new religious movements. Some academics who study the phenomenon treat it as a movement that is divided into different religions while others characterize it as a single religion of which different pagan faiths are denominations.

Intelligence is largely a classist mythMost people who we think of as intelligent (like Newton, Einstein, Hawking, etc.) were just wealthy and had access to a good education.
Amirite?Rightoids like capitalism because it generates inequality but they just want that inequality to be arbitrarily racist. They get mad about corporations going "woke" because it exposes their spooks as completely meaningless in the face of capital. They can never support socialism because their valueset begins with hierarchy being a necessary feature of life.

Idealism in Quantum PhysicsThis has annoyed me for a while and I would like to have addressed this for people who are also interested in this subject. I am not studied in physics and specifically quantum physics. I just take a general interest in this subject on the periphery of all the other things I am occupied with. When learning about physics through popsci videos and occasionally reading articles on the matter it has always bothered how nonsensical ideas and contrived theories are spread on this subject, and that shit needs to die.
Tolkien's work is reactionary and lies at the root of neoliberalismWhy his reactionary fascist fantasy resonates with the "progressive" cultural revolution of the 1960s is the question. How is it that the most hypercapitalist neoliberalism became fused with feudalistic fantasies found in LOTR? How did fantasy become the literary genre of neoliberalism, or at least its true believers? We know he disavows of white supremacism (letter about "aryan" heritage), but I don't trust it. In his fictional universe, things seem pretty white supremacist. Heroes have to be of worthy ancestry, and Aragorn is described very often as the perfect human due to his heritage. Each and every conflict seems to be extremely black and white. Peasantry is of no importance, they are dirty, stupid and unwashed refugees. The most powerful societies are all feudalist/monarchist, good people have extreme amounts of wealth, colonialism is good, and when a society fails this is due to a greater power such as Morgoth and Sauron, not because of societal failure. After Saruman cut down the forest to build his siege weapons, the trees came down to destroy him. Through his, Tolkien represents feudalism as a flourishing society, and industrialism of Saruman and Sauron as evil. Some creatures have a greater innate value than others, with orcs being irredeemable and elves being immortal. Another recurring theme of his is the decay through time. The world is only becoming worse, it is mentioned that everything was perfect at some point in the past, and people do not have the power to "save" the world. Those are all rather reactionary ideas.

Sonic the HedgehogI have a weird fascination with this franchise, particularly its fans. How do they remain so loyal when there's been maybe one or two good games in the last two decades in a sea of average-to-terrible garbage released year after year? How did Sega manage to take all the wrong lessons away from their colossal fuckups of the mid-late 2000s?
Anti-imperialist progress in West AfricaLast month big news came from Niger. The military announced it had seized power and arrested the ProFrench President Mohamed Bazoum. The Constitution has been suspended and power transferred to a military junta. This was caused by increased unrest in the country, caused by the failure of the government to fight the ISIS insurgency and the endemic poverty that has gripped the country since independence from France.

American Revolutionin America, recent polls are showing that teens tend to be more left-wing than all the generations that came before them. Owning a house and retiring in America is nothing but a dream at this point, and people seem to be more stressed out and over-worked than ever, while capitalists keep finding new ways to exploit the people.
