Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins – Book Review

Self-help books are a peculiar genre of books. They can be either very inspirational or just filled with the complete and utter bullshit. In my experience I have never read a self-help book which was just ‘meh’. This book, well, this book is one of those very inspirational books. Caution: explicit language will follow.             […]

Soumission by Michel Houellebecq – Book Review

Religion is not something people are able to critique easily. Many of the ‘new Atheists’, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, etc. have outed critique on Christianity and on the Islam. Most of the Christian can tolerate criticism and jokes nowadays, but for Muslim countries this is not the case. People who critique the Islam can get […]

Factfulness by Hans Rosling – Book Review

The world is hell, said Arthur Schopenhauer. Suffering is everywhere. With this in mind it is easy to see to world as something going down the rabbit hole straight to the deepest layers of hell. But what if, just what if the world is actually getting better, and better yet: getting better in a fast […]

The Ethical Slut by Dossie Easton – Book Review

Ecce Homo by Friedrich Nietzsche – Book Review

Behold, Man! In this short book, which didn’t get finished because of Nietzsche’s mental collapse, the Antichrist himself gives a small biography of his life. Well, I say biography but it’s actually more of an introduction to his works and to him as a person. I do believe this is a great book of Nietzsche […]

Parerga und Paralipomena by Arthur Schopenhauer – Book Review

Arthur Schopenhauer is famous for being the pessimistic philosopher avant la lettre. For him it was a quite reasonable question to ask yourself: wouldn’t I just be better off dead? He would answer this with the answer: yes. In this book, which is a compilation of multiple small essays, Schopenhauer goes into many different topics, […]

Ordinary Men by Christopher Browning – Book Review

History has its fair share of moments where horrible actions have taken place. It is almost as if history is just one bad thing after the other. Sometimes we might wonder how it could possibly be that human beings can cause such atrocities towards one another. One of the cruelest events in recent history is […]

Maps of Meaning by Jordan Peterson – Book Review

It’s been a while since Jordan Peterson made the news. It’s like he vanished of the face of the earth for some time. Jordan Peterson interests me because of his views on the meaning of life and how we can achieve it, which he thinks is achieved by putting some individual responsibility on yourself. I […]

The Teachings of Karl Marx by V. Lenin – Book Review

A lot of times Vladimir Lenin has been excused by communists from the horrors of the Sovjet Union. Stalin is mostly seen as the big bad guy, which is understandable since Lenin was only alive in the beginning of the SU and Stalin quickly took over. It was during Stalin’s reign that most of the […]

The Case Against Free Speech by Moskowitz – Book Review

Freedom of speech is seen as a fundamental right in western societies. It is one of the universal rights of human beings and in the United States it is the First Amendment for a reason. Nowadays it feels like we started disbelieving in the freedom of speech. The Cancel Culture for example is a perfect […]
