Humor and Life

My satire is bad; my life details are worse. Still, people laugh at both, so join in the party. Everyone's invited.

Science and Philosophy

Thinking about thinking is important. How do our minds interface with the world? What can we do to avoid making errors? Does morality exist?

Without spirit, nothing matters. But if you have free will, it makes all the difference in the world.

Key:

  • Green: Day hikes, but can be done overnight.

The Danger of Idea Laundering: Mein Kampf and Social Justice

Reading Time: 7 minutes In essence, idea laundering works through systemic infiltration of ideological malfeasance in the peer-review process. The grievance studies showed how this works, so I won’t go into too much detail (all the professors involved are liberal; Dr. Boghossian wrote “A Manual for Creating Atheists, so their worldview is humanist), but I’ll break it down a bit.
