Intro to 'Total Passion'

Kyrel Zantonavitch's new review on Amazon of my book, 'Total Passion for the Total Height,' prompted me to start re-reading the thing myself. As I made my way through the Introduction I became quite exercised by the trenchant accuracy of my own observations, and motivated to lift myself from the pessimistic funk induced by the horrors of which I write. It occurred to me that I'd never published that Introduction here. Here it is (oh, and of course, buy the book if you want more!):

SOLO-International Op-Ed: A Second Declaration of Independence

Lindsay Perigo
December 26, 2009

When in the course of human affairs it becomes necessary for citizens to break the political chains that hitherto have bound them, and to reclaim the individual sovereignty which is their birthright, it is opportune and appropriate for them to declare the causes which have impelled them to self-liberation. We, the freedom-loving citizens of the United States of America, choose to do so at this historic moment.

One common argument that is ubiquitous from Objectivists, and has been for decades, is that there is an equal or substantial threat coming from both sides of the political spectrum.

Mulling Mahleria and Moronnials

New Zealand Symphony Orchestra
Gustav Mahler, Symphony No. 3 in D minor
Saturday April 2, 2016,
Michael Fowler Centre

The end-times presaged by the state of our culture seemed frighteningly imminent in Wellington on Saturday night. Along the waterfront an assortment of homegrown headbangers caterwauled mercilessly, in what was, apparently, an organised event; along the streets, the prone bodies of their fans—the flower of contemporary moronnials—blocked doorways and shouted irresistibly erudite profundities such as "What the fuck?!" and "Fuck off!" to the world at large and no one in particular.
