“I believe that nothing should be taboo – no theory or prejudice should close one’s mind to a discovery.” – Henry Moore
By now you all know somewhat of my brand of writing: the paleoconservative take on life lessons, etc. It can get boring, but hopefully, you have found some nugget of what I contribute to be interesting. Not all that is submitted is picked up for print. Typically, I will write some op-eds on conservative politics, values, life experience, and I will even dabble in some spirituality. Sometimes it can come across as conservative-splaining, or maybe it’s mansplaining or religion-splaining? There’s actually quite a bit of additional material that I write about on my blog, withdrawconsent.org.
My blog came about out of frustration with a one-sided press where everything has to parrot a particular narrative; or social media where conservatives are regularly in the hoosgow from Big Tech’s ever-evolving community standards. This can be quite a challenge for a digital marketer that makes a living on these platforms. Of course, the challenge is not limited to just personal posts, etc. I can say that without a doubt getting content approved for ads has become quite cumbersome for business accounts as well. Did you know that social media ads dealing in standard industries like finance and banking get labeled as discriminatory and disapproved? I guess for some reason if you’re writing loans and not everyone will qualify, that’s not fair. Or something?
Several pieces that I have written delve into more taboo but contemporary topics like quantum dot tattoos, transhumanism, global campaigns like the Great Reset, etc. These have all been submitted, but the Journal typically declines to print them. That’s unfortunate, as I think they’re very interesting topics and more akin to what you might find in your favorite podcast or pop-culture editorial. I do my best to cite my work, as I think it’s important to arrive at conclusions after seeing proof. That’s certainly something that is missing at scale from the national conversation.
One of the recent pieces published at the Idaho State Journal was titled “Let No Idea Go Unchallenged”, and in writing on these mainstream but more controversial topics, that is my intent. I’d like to start a conversation. Or at a minimum, I’d like to challenge taboo ideas in Southeast Idaho, as they are in the national press. If you’d like to read some of these topics, please do check out the blog section of my website and feel free to dialogue with me there. And if you’d like to see a broader range of topics in the columns section of the ISJ, let them know. Cheers!
