The Prudentialist

As long as I can remember in the nearly 27 years of my short life, is that there has always been a push to get people excited and ready to look ahead for the next election. I distinctly remember in 2012, the call for an “autopsy” as to why the Republican Party had lost, that …

Reel Talk videos are a way to get out my ideas in an impromptu, stream of consciousness format that I hope will be something for viewers to think about and stir conversations on the political and cultural issues not just of the day but also for our present age.

Elon Musk now owns Twitter. I’m going to make this short, as the news events are still relatively unfolding. This isn’t the first time we’ve done this, talking about Twitter, which we did when Jack Dorsey left. Prudent Perceptions Digital Anarcho-Tyranny Jack Dorsey’s Gone. Should we celebrate?

Recently I took the time to read N.S. Lyons’ article in City Journal about the bugaboo of counterculture and the “new right.” It’s quite a good article, and I highly recommend that you read it. It covers much of what has recently been reported on, from James Pogue’s article in Vanity Fair that has spurred …

Someone asked me not too long ago to talk about life. At first I didn’t feel the need or want to, in part because I am a terrible fiction writer, and short stories are not really my thing. I am an ideas guy, an extrapolator, some even say educator. I am not the world’s most …

Reel Talk is an ongoing series of videos I do my YouTube Channel. They are short videos of me fishing while recording impromptu and extemporaneous remarks on the various cultural and political issues of the day. They are streams of consciousness, outlining the things I think that are important to listen to. I intend to …

Before I begin, I wanted to note that this will hopefully be a regular mainstay on this substack, a short weekly post on the foreign policy goings on and engaging in writing to think. I do plan for this to generate better discussion on foreign affairs while offering some insight that I think will be …

I am usually inspired to write primarily from three areas, the first being that of what I see on my drives across rural North Texas, the second being my life experiences from Church to Friendships, and the third being what I read both online and offline. Today I came across this thread from Pedro L. …
