Another Failed Attempt by Feminist Propagandists in Philosophy

May 26, 2017 AR-15 3

Philosophical Studies published this specimen on the rate of women publishing in philosophy journals. Of particular note is not why in the hell Phil Studies published some half-baked social science paper, but that women were slightly overrepresented in journals that had non-anonymous reviews but underrepresented in those which had anonymous reviews. For analysis and to see how the authors spun the data (which no doubt will gain some traction) see this helpful commentary. Here is a [Continue reading]

Basket of Deplorable Links

May 25, 2017 AR-15 9

This is the first in our “Basket of Deplorable Links” posts. We plan to make it a regular feature. Philippe Lemoine’s analysis of the Trump/Russia witch hunt and the recent New York Times’s fake news story. Germany cracks down on free speech. “On Friday morning Maas introduced a draft law to the Bundestag which requires social media networks to remove any references to the mass nonwhite invasion of Germany, and which forbids the spreading of any [Continue reading]

More Recordings Surface in the Curry Case

May 19, 2017 AR-15 2

This just in. I have not been following the story closely, so I will reserve the right to comment about the details later. I see that the Daily Noise is (of course) taking pains to defend Curry. One thing that we do know is that, if Curry were white, he would have been forced out long, long ago. Such is the state of Amerika. Do readers have any insight into this?

Dethroning King, Defending Dreher

May 18, 2017 AR-15 2

“A responsible critic aspires to the heights of intellectual charity, and at least rises to the level of fairness.” So says Nathan (Nate) King at The American Conservative in an article much lauded today by many professing philosophers.  The article is, for the most part, a criticism of Rod Dreher’s provocatively titled essay, “The Self-Murder of Academic Philosophy.”  In the latter essay, Dreher leads by asking why anyone would choose to go into academic philosophy today. He then [Continue reading]

Guest Post: In Defense of Autocracy

April 17, 2017 AR-15 6

Jacques emailed the blog with the following argument defending autocracy: Jan [Sobieski] said it would be interesting to hear a defense of autocracy. Here goes. To be clear, it’s only a defense. I don’t claim that autocracy is a good system of government, or better than others. I only mean to defend autocracy against objections to the effect that it’s a bad system, or worse than some other one. The defense is straightforward: no political system is [Continue reading]

Equal Opportunity and Justice

March 17, 2017 AR-15 13

“Equality of opportunity has seemed to many writers to be the minimal egalitarian goal, questionable (if at all) only for being too weak.” Robert Nozick, ASU, p. 235. While the left stresses equality of results, some on the right promote equality of opportunity and think that everyone deserves an equal chance. While they do not see equality of outcomes as a matter of justice, they think that equality of opportunity is a requirement of justice [Continue reading]

The New Jim Crow Chapter 1: The Rebirth of Caste

March 6, 2017 AR-15 5

Several months ago, Rightly Considered began the task of reviewing one of the sacred texts of contemporary leftism, The New Jim Crow. We have returned during this Lenten season to chastise ourselves by reading and reviewing Chapter 1: The Rebirth of Caste. Alexander’s first chapter waffles between two goals, both of which are seemingly intertwined: (1) to present a brief catalog of black subjugation at the hands of slavers in the antebellum United States, the [Continue reading]
