You may have caught the occasional pungent observation by Edward Morrison Morley in our “Stop and think” space on the home page. Now I’m delighted to post his first full-length article at TLD. Mr. Morley examines some news reports appearing recently in a leading Organ of Information Security, and along the way he commits some satire. (That’s not actually a federal felony yet, is it?)

The Big Lie.  Always full of surprises, Douglas Olson looks at who uses it and who finds its use treacherous. It’s not who you think it is.

Were Europe’s Jews Sacrificed to Further the Zionist Dream of a Jewish State? Leave it to Douglas Olson to delve into this — and to have a few words that will help you do some delving yourself.

Why do our limited-government friends seem not to be making much headway in promoting their ideal, despite its noble pedigree reaching back 400 years and the names of its past champions practically household words? Is it a myth that has failed? In Myth and Legitimacy, managing editor Ronn Neff makes a stab at an answer.

There is nothing new under the sun, and the neologistically named “cancel culture” is nothing new — not to Americans who have suffered it before, and not to those who have suffered it at American hands. In fact, when it shows up, it signifies something pretty important. The current Unsilent Truth tells you what.

TLD is a forum of opinion, edited by hard-core market anarchists, that does not flinch from any of the most pressing issues of our time. We are especially interested in questions of culture and ethnicity, our Polite Totalitarian ruling class, and the homicidal humanitarianism of the U.S. Empire.

Our writers include anarcho-pessimists, Old Believers in the West, unreconstructed Confederates, neo-Objectivists, and other enemies of the permanent regime. We are conscientiously indifferent to considerations of thoughtcrime. Thus, from individualist and Euro-American perspectives, we confront the end of civilization — and do our level best to name its destroyers. (More about who we are.)

"If this government cared about ideas, it would crack down on The Last Ditch. It could be called The Joy of Thinking."

Joe Sobran

"Whoever said 'Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty' didn't realize it, but he was thinking of The Last Ditch."

— Jared Taylor, editor of American Renaissance
