Ruminations On The White Male Suicide Problem



Having lost another friend to suicide I took a fishing trip and ruminated on how men can get the basic needs of life met, in the hope that they do not fall further into the abyss of despair.....

The limit of Christian Morality







By Atdilda


In my estimation one of the central ideas to modern "western" morality is the popular Christian doctrine
Do unto others as you would have them do to you
Which sees as much secular support as it does religious. This underpins our justification for many actions and obligations the state commits to on behalf of its public. We hope that in our times of need someone may take care of us, and should thus be willing to do the same for others, and so nationalized healthcare and the welfare state are justified and funded by the taxpayer.

A Quiet Place And The Web Of Silence





I was absolutely fascinated by the premise of ''A Quiet Place''. Drafting out the script for the video and where I wanted to go it occurred to me that I was having to jump through hoops to prevent the (((censors))) on YouTube being alerted to the ideas in my video. The title had to be free of the word ''white'' for example. This is not how free people live....

Why Did Journalists Become So Hated?


In my new video I take at look the phenomenon of hating journalists. Have we always held journalists in such low regard that we cheer with delight at them being fired? What happened to the press to make them so widely despised and frequently compared to rats and cockroaches?

Mob Response






By Atdilda


Recent events have brought back to my memory a realization that fundamentally changed my outlook on life around one year ago.

 The recent event is one of the newer instances of Europeans naively going unprepared to an African nation and being murdered therein. The primary instinctive reaction is one of empathic despair, like when a defenseless animal is predated. Suffering of humans at the hands of other humans is particularly stomach churning, a hopeless situation that concludes only as the tormentor loses interest.

The Tragedy Of Diane Abbott






After another painfully incompetent performance by Diane Abbott last week on Question Time I decided to riff on a post from last year exploring the issue. Is it ethical to catapult people into positions they cannot cope with in the name of equality when such people are exposed and widely mocked by the general public?

Asimov, Foundation & New World Order





My analysis of Isaac Asimov's Foundation books and the manner in which it corresponds to the world we live in today. Can it be that we, like denizens of Asimov's Foundation, are living in a pre-planned history?

Hirsch, Critical Theory & Nihilism





In my new video I take a look at the excruciating Afua Hirsch and Critical Theory. There's little point in moaning about the uncaring British when our identity has been so comprehensively critiqued and deconstructed that there are no values systems left in place, except hedonism and nihilism.

Pacific Rim 2 And The Global Man






I've just spent a few of the remaining hours of my Christmas holidays watching a huge dollop of CGI sewage called ''Pacific Rim 2: Uprising''. Essentially the film is B-Grade tripe telling the tale of monsters coming to earth from another dimension which have to be fought, hand-to-hand, by giant robots with people piloting them from inside. 

 I know, I know.

 Pacific Rim features a cast nobody has ever heard of, except the African fellow who's popped up in the recent Star Wars movies, at a push. But the cast is certainly very diverse, both racially and sexually. Small Pakistani girls drive robots the size of skyscrapers and one blonde girl seems to be the token inter-gender androgyny box tick.

Merry Christmas And Millenniyule




Well folks that pretty much wraps-up another year here at merry old Morgoth's Review. In what has become something of an annual event I made my appearance on ''Millenniyule'' last night and now I'll treat myself to a few days away from it all.

 My recent foray into YouTube has left me feeling as if I've neglected written content at the blog which remains my first love. I think as I go forward I'll use the blog for content which I deem ''To Hot'' for the censor happy moderators on YouTube while using YouTube for my movie reviews and pop culture type content. I certainly do not want blog regulars to think that I'm planning to shift away from M-Rev and simply dump the old blog, quite the opposite, the blog is becoming something of a redoubt as internet censorship becomes one of the most pressing issues of our time.
