The embeddedness of media malpractice in modern Western culture is beyond evidential dispute. The “fake news” meme that has been used against major news outlets is only labeling what has been the case for decades (if not all of American history). The most recent example of the fake news phenomena working to further expose the … Continue reading Media Malpractice
The Summa of the Libertarian Catholic, article III, makes three arguments in their attempt to unite libertarianism to the Catholic faith.

Christians routinely speak of losing the culture and that we … Continue reading Political Revolution is Covert Psychological Warfare
