The Turner Diaries

Reading this racist self-insert fantasy story was definitely not an enjoyable experience. The author clearly has no self-awareness and the way MacDonald reaches so hard to pretend white people are oppressed, especially to such a severe degree, is insane. Not only that, but it’s poorly written too. A lot of the writing has been clearly… Continue reading The Turner Diaries

The SCUM Manifesto

The SCUM (Society for Cutting Up Men) manifesto, put bluntly, is hilarious. It’s so outlandishly radical, and the fact that Solanas took her writing seriously makes it even funnier. Solanas was a categorically insane radical feminist who was known for, other than writing the SCUM manifesto, attempting to assassinate Andy Warhol. In summary, her writing… Continue reading The SCUM Manifesto

The Anarchist Cookbook

There’s not much commentary I feel I can offer on The Anarchist Cookbook. A lot of it is just recipes for drugs and bombs. It’s not a manifesto and doesn’t contain much mention of theory, or praxis for anarchist ideology. It’s obviously rebellious and probably 95% of the recipes are illegal, but it contains a… Continue reading The Anarchist Cookbook

Actually reading the book, my… Continue reading Mein Kampf

Mein Kampf Introduction

The introduction to Mein Kampf provides some important nuance to anyone who decides to pick up this terrible excuse for literature, and I agree with a lot of its assertions. It’s understandable why some people out there would rather nobody read Mein Kampf in any context, due to fear of the ideas being revived. However,… Continue reading Mein Kampf Introduction

Notes on Chapters 9 and 10 of Mein Kampf

Chapter 9: “The German Workers Party” Starts by saying he has intent to look into a small new party called the German Workers party. Then goes on a tangent: -Centrists and social democrats were beginning to lead towards nationalist rhetoric -Nationalism would mean these groups wouldn’t insight revolutions -Briefly mentions that an army without nationalism… Continue reading Notes on Chapters 9 and 10 of Mein Kampf

A Scathing Review and Analysis of Marquis de Sade’s “The 120 Days of Sodom”

The 120 Days of Sodom, by Marquis de Sade, is the most disgusting piece of literature that I have ever had the displeasure of reading. It is filled with the most vile sexual fantasies that not even the Urban Dictionary could accurately describe, and it’s frankly a wonder that de Sade’s mind alone was able… Continue reading A Scathing Review and Analysis of Marquis de Sade’s “The 120 Days of Sodom”
