Americans Strongly Dislike PC Culture
On social media, the country seems to divide into two neat camps: Call them the woke and the resentful. Team Resentment is manned—pun very much intended—by people who are predominantly old and almost exclusively white.

The Riddle of UX Writing
The fortune cookie is no ordinary cookie. It eschews the gooey chunks, decorative frosting, and other cheap thrills typical of the confectionary genre. It carries a certain dignity and grace. A gentle arch and intimate fold tell you how to hold it, and how to snap it in two. It has a story to tell.

Schelling fences on slippery slopes
Slippery slopes are themselves a slippery concept. Imagine trying to explain them to an alien: And the alien might well respond: "But you could just ban Holocaust denial, but not ban unpopular political positions or religions.

We need a post-liberal order now
For several generations, the world has been governed by what today we call “the global liberal order”. Behind these lofty words is the idea that all humans share some core experiences, values and interests, and that no human group is inherently superior to all others.

Another option is using a contrasting image from the start and placing the copy on top of a dark section of a photograph. If you need to include a lot of text, use the blocks featuring collapsable text copy (in Tilda, it's blocks TX12, TX16N or the button BF703).

The Left’s Contempt for Jordan Peterson Is Perfectly Rational
Identity politics will be the death of the center-right. There was a time when America’s Burkean contrarians felt compelled to engage with the substance of their critics’ arguments; to meet facts with facts, disputations with counter-disputations.

Jeremy Corbyn, 1970s Revanchist, Is Suddenly the Face of the New New Left
The politics of Britain and the U.S. can have a strange, synchronized rhythm to them. Margaret Thatcher was a harbinger of Ronald Reagan as both countries veered suddenly rightward in the 1980s. Prime Minister John Major emerged as Thatcher’s moderate successor as George H.W.

Poverty Safari Quotes by Darren McGarvey
At some point, I started believing the lie that I was not responsible for my own thoughts, feelings and actions. That these were all by-products of a system that mistreated and excluded me. And that I could only change and overcome these difficulties, when society intervened in my circumstances or was dismantled and rebuilt.

As if somehow, these day-to-day problems are less consequential to the poor than the musings of Karl Marx. As if somehow, we can postpone action on the things that are demoralising, incapacitating and killing us until after the hypothetical revolution. Beneath all the theoretical discussion and torturous terminology about politics and economics, these problems of mind, body and spirit and what we do to manage them as individuals

Luckily, the ‘liberal intelligentsia’ and the ‘metropolitan elite’ possess enough influence, cultural capital and personal agency to construct their own vast parallel reality in the event that coarse, under class concerns do start bleeding into the conversation. A parallel reality where ‘twibbons’, safety-pins, free-hugs, Huffington Post think-pieces, Tumblr blogs and gender-neutral gingerbread products are all that’s needed to resolve a crisis. When the full wrath of working class anger is brought to bear on the domain of politics, sending ripples through our culture, it’s treated like a national disaster.

These irritating tropes of middle class life, around veganism, cycling and healthy eating, really served a practical function and were not necessarily as pretentious as I thought. As well as being markedly cheaper, many of these seemingly indulgent lifestyle choices were about living in accordance with the needs of the wider community,

But many of the conditions of my life began to change when I got less offended by the truth: some of my problems are mine to solve. The new frontier for individuals and movements who want to radically change society is to first recognise the need for radical change within ourselves.

Things That Bother Me: Death, Freedom, the Self, Etc. by Galen Strawson
I’m inclined to agree with Sartre when he suggests in his novel La nausée that self-storying, although inevitable, condemns us to inauthenticity, a kind of absence from our own lives.

It is not “our selves in our nervous tics and optical flecks that we wish to perpetuate,” Updike says; “it is the self as window on the world that we can’t bear to think of shutting.” This, presumably, is why Dostoyevsky’s Raskolnikov thinks that eternity “on a cliff, on a ledge with room for a pair of feet and nothing more, while all around . . .were chasms, the ocean, eternal gloom, eternal solitude and eternal tempest,” would be better than nonexistence

La carte et le territoire Quotes by Michel Houellebecq
The Map and the Territory

Aging, and especially apparent aging, is in no respect a continuous process. Life could rather be characterised as a succession of levels, separated by sudden falls. When we meet someone we have lost sight of for some years, we sometimes have the impression that he has aged; sometimes, on the other hand, that he hasn’t changed at all. This is a complete fallacy, since decay is still secretly making its way inside the organism before bursting out into the broad daylight.

More generally, you were living in an ideologically strange period, when everyone in Western Europe seemed persuaded that capitalism was doomed, and even doomed in the short term, that it was living through its very last years, without, however, the ultra-left parties managing to attract anyone beyond their usual clientele of spiteful masochists. A veil of ashes seemed to have spread over people’s minds.
