In Praise of the Revolver

December 10th, 2016|5 Comments

I admit, I shouldn't be the one writing this article. I only own one revolver. There are others that know more and have more experience. However, my perspective might be useful if you don't find revolvers interesting, or if you think they are obsolete. I once thought revolvers were boring. [...]

We at Men of the West have been advocating for a return to traditional Western Cultural ideals. Of course, every single one of our authors, editors, and admins has been doing this for years. Some of us did it individually, and some of us have participated in groups. No matter how we approached this task, we all decided that it [...]

Even God Laughs at Islam

December 9th, 2016|4 Comments

Sultan Knish offers a strategy to combat an ideology whose only hope of expansion lies in promoting itself through intimidation, conformity, deception, and political correctness: When Mark Twain said that, "Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand", he was speaking as part of a long tradition of American humorists who satirized the great and powerful, who knew that nothing [...]

Christian Apologetics: The Cosmological Argument Part 1

December 8th, 2016|3 Comments

The Cosmological Argument is based on scientific evidence for a Creator: Premise: That which begins to exist must have a cause. Premise: The universe began to exist Conclusion: The universe has a cause. There isn't much room to maneuver here.  The first premise is simply logical. Every event in our existence has a chain of causality.  We may not always know what [...]

One month ago today, safe spaces were destroyed, butts were hurt, and the California drought ended because of the flood of liberal tears.

Yair Rosenberg is a Liar and Coward

December 8th, 2016|4 Comments

Fake Rabbinical Ordination, you say? It has recently come to the attention of The Men of the West that one Yair Rosenberg of Tablet Magazine has appointed himself the supreme arbiter of Jewishness.  Now, normally, this is not the sort of thing we would concern ourselves with, as such trivial things as who is a Jew and who [...]

Ricardo on Comparative Advantage: Handwaving Ahoy!

December 7th, 2016|5 Comments

Ricardo's example: "To produce the wine in Portugal, might require only the labour of 80 men for one year, and to produce the cloth in the same country, might require the labour of 90 men for the same time. It would therefore be advantageous for her to export wine in exchange for cloth. This exchange might even take place, notwithstanding [...]

A Day Which Will Live In Infamy

December 7th, 2016|5 Comments

Editor's Note: We at Men of the West will rarely look to FDR without acrimony, but on this day, December 7, it is fitting that we remember the attack on Pearl Harbor, and the American response.

Trump, Carrier, and Single Income Families

December 5th, 2016|14 Comments

Several weeks ago in this space, I laid out my vision for the right wing: America should be a society where a man working full time can provide for his family using only one income.

The Art of Advent

December 4th, 2016|4 Comments

When celebrating western civilization the subject of art cannot be over looked.  No, not the ejectus celebrated as art today but art that actually moves you and makes you think.  Art based on beauty not mere emotional outburst.  Consider these; the first... Mary Consoles Eve:     And the second... perhaps my favorite painting of the Holy Family... Gari Melchers' [...]

Free Trade Is Not a Virtue

December 4th, 2016|9 Comments

President-Elect Donald Trump made it a centerpiece of his campaign to renegotiate bad trade deals. He has taken a lot of flack from globalists and the libertarian right for his free trade skepticism. We heard no less than Paul Ryan himself opining that free trade was a conservative value. Radio commentator Mark Levin is about to have his head explode [...]

Victorian Era Propaganda

December 3rd, 2016|0 Comments

As the Victorian Age drew to a close and the Edwardian period began, the British Empire found that ties to colonial dominions were weaker than they had been (James, p. 319). The Boer War had ended, but rather than eliciting patriotic fervor, it had been tiresome and had only succeeding in presenting the African inhabitants as barbarous. Mismanagement and political [...]
