Freeze Peach | American Farce: Biden's Mind Melt Bonanza (Part II)

Biden, as President, repeatedly forgets the names of institutions, names of people he himself appointed, places he's been, countries America is invading, even his wife Jill, who he called Karen once—she laughed for the cameras but died a little inside.

Freeze Peach | American Farce: Biden's Mind Melt Bonanza (Part I)

If it's not excruciatingly obvious yet, Joe Biden's fading mental faculties at public events have become so cringeworthy we probably have a moral right to categorize it as 'elder abuse.' The guy turned 78 last November, the same age as Ronald Reagan when he completed his SECOND term—that's retirement age, but Joe's just getting started.

Freeze Peach | Ghosts of Rome: All Great Civilizations Fall—Is America Next? (Part II)

Over its three million years of existence, the human species has continuously sought to modify nature and (technology permitting) drained its resources. We have, over time, become desensitized to the possible scenarios of a great cataclysm that would undoubtedly change the world forever. These imagined cataclysms – from war, nuclear winter, asteroid strikes, or economic collapse – are far from fantasy.

Freeze Peach | Ghosts of Rome: All Great Civilizations Fall—Is America Next? (Part I)

America's modern-day equivalency is its far-reaching military-industrial complex deployed in more locations than throughout its history. In 2017, an explosive Pentagon study stated that the US-backed international order established after World War 2 was "fraying" and "collapsing." The report's conclusion? More budget and more expansion of the military-industrial complex to maintain global 'access to resources.'

Freeze Peach | Rotten apples: When trashy foreign tabloids become an international obsession (Part II)

Chinese civilization is premised on entirely different values from a Western settler mindset of "I have rights" to a collective mindset of "We have obligations." That is, instead of thinking we're born with individual rights, we choose to think of living with obligations to serve past, present, and future generations and the planet itself— something the "international community" could learn from.

Freeze Peach | US-China geopolitical fisticuffs: Civilization's ultimate tech-flex (Part II)

Because it's the world reserve currency – reinforced by the US military, a beautifully constructed loop that needs all the protection it can get lest de-dollarisation begins in earnest and the super imperialism of economic sanctions forces the US military to retreat like never before.

Freeze Peach | US-China geopolitical fisticuffs: Civilization's ultimate tech-flex (Part I)

The evolution of man has but one constant: technology changes, but human nature does not. Naturally, different communities accountable to their social organizations disagreed, embarking on a never-ending series of wars. Soon technology and war became synonymous with human nature and survival. The details of such conflicts are now irrelevant. But what remains is our understanding of the role of technology. Through the vortex of ages, be it ice, stone, iron, nuclear, space, the place of technology in civilization holds that those who possess it control all else.

Freeze Peach | Rotten apples: When trashy foreign tabloids become an international obsession (Part I)

As the printing press cogs turned and years cascaded, Apple Daily became an out-and-out horror show, consisting of malpractice journalism typically found within The Sun, Daily Sport, and Daily Mail pages — print portals to outlandish conspiracy theories, porn, and false information with a xenophobic twist. Yet somehow, the western media orthodoxy remains uncritical in its attempts to rebrand its closure as anything but a saintly newsletter promoting democracy.

Freeze Peach | Humanity's folly: Death, destruction, and health diplomacy

Freeze Peach|Systemic inertia, Asian hate crime, Cancun Cruz, and other news

Sup peaches. In the news this week, Joe Biden's first month in charge - we ask - Is America Great Again Yet? Trump is acquitted, but a culture of hate remains, especially against Asian-Americans. Langley-aligned The New York Times predictably trashes WHO trip to Wuhan. SNL digs at Israeli apartheid, but how soon until Michael Che gets fired, canceled, or is forced to apologize? Senator Ted Cruz is a sociopath. Finally, legendary dance duo Daft Punk quits after not breathing adequately in helmets for 28 years.

Freeze Peach | Corona death, civil unrest, Reddit revolutions, and other happy endings

Phew. For the first time in 2021, nothing tragic or noteworthy happened. You know, like how the UK on Tuesday surpassed 100,000 corona deaths, and like how on Wednesday, the US topped 400,000.
