On Being a Dominant, part whatever

Posted in Advice, Dominance, Philosophy, Relationships with tags , , , , , on September 19, 2013 by Xajow

Sometimes, Dominants, you will find yourselves behaving in a manner that seems perfectly normal and amicable to you, and someone else will be offended by your words and/or deeds. And sometimes the someone offended will be a person who is or wants to be in charge. It may even be someone with whom you must, for whatever reason, get along amicably. What do you do?

Project August: Day 22 – Just What Is This Libertarianism Anyway?

Posted in Anti-libertarianism, Argumentation, Government, Libertarianism, Philosophy, Politics, Project August with tags , , , , , , , on August 22, 2013 by Xajow

Yes, I am going to talk about libertarianism again. Why do I talk about it when I could be making sexier posts about Dominance/submission? Talking about D/s and talking about libertarianism really stem from the same place for me. This blog is about expressing support for the liberty of the individual. D/s is part of my understanding of that, as is libertarianism. D/s and libertarianism may seem separate things in your mind, O reader, but they are intertwined in mine. Continue reading

Project August: Day 10 – Wherein I Condemn the Confederacy, Racism and Slavery

Posted in Libertarianism, Morality, Philosophy, Project August with tags , , , , , , on August 10, 2013 by Xajow

Racism is not something I talk about much, because addressing racism can make me angry to the point of being enraged. To be clear, I have little tolerance for racism. Those who harbor dislike of other people based on skin color are fools. Already I am having to force myself to breathe slowly to calm myself and focus. Racism makes me angry. There are few things in this world that I would genuinely say I hate, but racism is up at the top of that list. And right next to that on the list is slavery. Continue reading

Project August: Day 4 – Are Libertarianism and Christianity Incompatible?

Posted in Anti-libertarianism, Argumentation, Christianity, Libertarianism, Morality, Philosophy, Politics, Project August with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 4, 2013 by Xajow

Today being a Sunday and myself being a Christian, I went looking for something theological to write about. And eventually I found something. Apparently, some people consider libertarianism to be incompatible with Christianity. Obviously, I disagree. So on this Sunday, August 4, 2013, I am going to look at an objection some Christians have to libertarianism. Continue reading

Project August: Day 3 – Why Ignorance of Libertarianism Is Not a Virtue

Yesterday I mentioned the many attempts to smear libertarianism, and today I am going to talk about one of them. Today I am going to respond to a post over at Huffington Post’s section rather boringly, and perhaps arrogantly, titled “The Blog”. I came across it by looking through posts at the blog of another site, libertarianism.org. There, Aaron Ross Powell responds to a post by Ekow N. Yankah at “The Blog”. Yes, more politics today. But as you will see, I bring this around to D/s as well. Continue reading

Concerning Libertarianism: On the “Cynicism” of Libertarian Philosophy (Updated Version)

Posted in Anti-libertarianism, Argumentation, Concerning Libertarianism, Government, Libertarianism, Morality, Philosophy, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 23, 2013 by Xajow

You may be thinking I just posted this the other day. But that post was not as well made as it should have been. So I made some changes. This is the updated and (hopefully) improved version.

One of the popular criticisms (and by criticism in this instance I mean denigration) of libertarianism these days seems to be that libertarianism is little more than cynicism. The implied idea being that libertarianism has no ideological footing or moral standing and therefore is just something snarky kooks use to pick on the poor ol’ government that is just trying to help people. Which is, of course, a fully erroneous idea. Libertarianism is, in fact, both moral and optimistic. Continue reading

Thoughts on a Movie D/s Folks Should See

Posted in D/s, Dominance, Movies, Relationships, submission with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 7, 2013 by Xajow

Now then class, in my previous post I mentioned I wanted to talk about a movie I think all D/s people should see. What movie is this? I shall tell you in due time. This is the part where I talk about this film which displays an D/s relationship in a charming and entertaining manner, and thereby tease you into wondering what movie I could possibly mean. Some of you may think you already know. And some of you who think you already know are wrong. And no, this film is not pornographic. This the part where I smile smugly, ask if anyone cares to guess, and then pretend to answer questions. But what is the movie? The title of the movie is… Continue reading
