With this new free speech rebellion, you have to wonder is if these groups are actually accomplishing anything, or if they are simply making themselves martyrs in a Cultural Marxist wasteland.

The Psychopath’s Case Against Empathy

By Jessica Kelly

The Devolution of Posthuman Society

By Randy Dethrow
