Reprinted with kind permission of Matt Forney of 12 March 2014. – Trevor Nietzsche is dead. God is alive. I mean that in the same way that Nietzsche himself proclaimed God’s death. More than a century after the egoist movement launched by Nietzsche and continued by Dora Marsden, Ragnar Redbeard, H.L. Mencken and
Fred Phelps (November 13, 1929 to March 19, 2014) has passed away. Known primarily for his public defense of atheism and laughing mockery of all things religious, “Pastor” Phelps is fondly remembered by his family and the thousands of friends he made all over the world. Phelps was always the first to point out t

The itsy-bitsy Holy See (aka The Vatican) holds a seat at the United Nations. They were squirming in that seat this week as the UN them they must dismiss clergy who rape children rather than reward them with a new parish to plunder. Imagine if Prince Albert II, head of state in the Principality of […]

Offense! The gift no one wants to give but once received everyone loves to share.

I begin with a tale sure to embarrass myself, thus winning you to my cause. In 1984 I was listening to experimental music to the exclusion of all other music. Rhythms not produced by machinery were not part of my sonic diet, and songs had to mean something (or at least be mean) to gain […]

Reprinted with kind permission from The Real Matt Forney. It’s funny: for a guy who went to a Catholic school, I really don’t remember much about the Bible. We had religion classes once a day during my entire tenure there, but I never cottoned to my school’s limp-wristed, social justice interpretation of C
Are We There Yet? is a series about changed minds. In November 1991 I published a review of William Powell’s book The Anarchist Cookbook in my zine OVO. I received the review without credit, but now I know the review was originally published in the New Libertarian, Volume V, Number III, April 1988. Powell has [
Prescriptions, claims about how things should be, have their place. Their place is largely in my past and outside of me. I know what I prefer but can’t tease out of that how things should be. I am humbled by how wrong I was about how things should be in the face of what is. […]
Liz Ramirez, Cassie Rivera, Kristie Mayhugh, and Anna Vasquez have been released from prison. They served fourteen years for a crime they did not commit. A crime, in fact, which no one committed. A crime that never happened. But due to the free pass Christianity gets when it talks nonsense, these four women were put […
Today, 25 November, was a special day in the life of Yukio Mishima. May you have a special day as well. I don’t want to do what Mishima did, I want to do what I do as fully as he did what he did. “The past does not only draw us back to the past. […]

(Reprinted with gratitude from Matt Forney, 17 July 2013. – Trevor) Have you ever wondered why all economic systems end up in the same place? Communism, capitalism, libertarianism, social democracy, Falangism, feminism; at the end of the day, barely anything distinguishes them, at least if you’re one of the prol
Transcript As some people know, one of my videos was censored recently by YouTube after being maliciously flagged by people who are afraid of free speech.

I am honored to have an article in the July 2013 issue of The Freethinker. The article is titled “Atheism and Evil.” It is an argument in favor of describing some acts as evil, and against describing all acts one objects to as insane. It also includes a brief summary of how secular thinkers such […]
