Edna St. Louis Missouri has hit the big time! Today I’ve posted her first free-standing article at TLD. I think you’ll agree that her trenchant “Stop and think” observations have earned her this honor. She reports here on the monstrous melding of Big Tech and Giant Government.

Back from the undead: The Military-Industrial Complex raises its ugly head once more
I especially like her elucidation of the Feasance Theory of Government. Utopians beware!

In his latest release, Edward Morrison Morley asks “Why?” concerning a number of matters, and the System of Satan, from its smoky, tenebrous, and mephitic pit, growls back, “Why not?”

OK, to be accurate, TLD headquarters hasn’t yet received a response from our demonic rulers and their busy imps, but Mr. Morley’s needle-pointed questions — and observations — are quite good enough for now.

With respect to a stylistic oddity you may notice in Mr. Morley’s essay, I assure you that it is no more than a temporary expression of eccentricity. Mr. Morley was once declared sane by a court in the delightfully exotic former Republic of Zubrowka, so ... there.

Uncle eddie’s quandaries

August 27, 2021.

As a loyal paladin of the Establishment, Edward Morrison Morley opines moderately, centristically, and middle-of-the-roadly as always in assessing the triumphant legacy of a famous politician who is taking a vacation from Power and its wielding:

Departing with grace and class. Not.

Attention! Your attention, please! Oceania’s recent glorious victory on the Malabar Front (cue trumpet fanfares from the telescreen) has inspired Mr. Edward Morrison Morley to unleash commentary as only he can:

Afergranistan update

August 10, 2021.

Edward Morrison Morley returns with mordant observations about the state of Nature (apologies to the late Mr. Hobbes), fertilized by reports appearing in the established media. According to Mr. Morley, not all of said reports are as crazy as a pair of waltzing mice! (The politicians and their servants, though — they might be a different story.)

Disasters, climate-change madness, and taking “action”

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.)

General e-mail to The Ditch: lastditch@thornwalker.com.

"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."
