The Collected Columns, Vol. I

Three-time nationally syndicated columnist Vox Day has been one of the most astute observers of the American political scene since the turn of the century. Known for successfully predicting the financial crisis of 2008 as well as the election of U.S. President Donald Trump in 2016, the iconoclastic writer’s work appeared regularly around the country in newspapers such as the Atlanta Journal/Constitution, the Boston Globe, the San Jose Mercury News, and the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Beginning in 2001, Vox Day wrote more than 500 columns for WorldNetDaily and Universal Press Syndicate. INNOCENCE & INTELLECT is the first of three volumes of collected columns, and consists of the columns published between the years 2001 and 2005. It addresses a wide variety of subjects, from encryption technology and economics to politics and video games. INNOCENCE & INTELLECT, 2001-2005 is DRM-free, 719 pages, and is available from Amazon and the Castalia House store for $6.99.

From the Foreword, by longtime reader Laramie Hirsch:

This was not a blowhard emotional young narcissist with a flimsy opinion. He always knew what he was talking about. Nor was he a one-trick pony. By the time the tide was turning, and Americans were having second thoughts about what Vox called the “War on a Tactic,” Vox was already discussing the state of America’s failing economy. Comparing Keynesian and Austrian economics, reconsidering American policies on international trade, and exposing the lying financial media, his articles were some of the first to recommend caution in the expectation of a coming recession. He recommended people get out of debt and invest in metals. In mid-2003, Vox was already discussing an inevitable real estate crash that wouldn’t happen for another five more years. His expression of America’s disdain for crippling “free trade” would not be fully realized until President Donald Trump’s election in 2016—almost a decade and a half later.

From the beginning of his time with WorldNetDaily in 2001, his writing seemed to surpass all of the typical right-leaning thinkers up until that point. And now, with the benefit of hindsight, we can see that almost every one of his positions from that early period have been vindicated by the recent events of 2016. I consider myself fortunate to have been able to discover such a writer from the beginning, and I truly feel as though I witnessed the embryonic stages of what would later become a great cultural change in America. Vox Day did not hesitate to call out the grinning jackals and betrayers of our nation from the very start. He was, and still remains to this day, ahead of the curve.

However, this first volume of the Collected Columns is not the only book we are releasing today. New Release subscribers, be sure to check your email today, because it’s an offer you will NOT want to miss. Brainstorm subscribers will certainly remember the wonderful session we held with Dr. Christopher Hallpike, the well-traveled anthropologist who has utterly demolished the fairy tales of the evolutionary psychologists with his actual experience of living with hunter-gather tribes in Africa and Papua New Guinea. Well, I stayed in touch with Dr. Hallpike, and we managed to acquire the rights to his excellent book, DO WE NEED GOD TO BE GOOD?

Anthropologist Christopher Hallpike has spent decades studying religion and morality in a wide variety of world cultures. In this book, he examines moral philosophies that range from primitive paganism to advanced secular humanism, as well as the sciences that attempt to study them.

Dr. Hallpike’s insight into the human condition is unique, as he has lived among tribal societies in Ethiopia and Papua New Guinea as well as the academic elite of the West. His scientific observations are fascinating, his logic is sound, and his scrutiny of evolutionary psychology, from the perspective of an experienced professional anthropologist, is among the most comprehensive scientific critiques of a popular theory ever published.

Featuring a Foreword by astrophysicist Sarah Salviander, DO WE NEED GOD TO BE GOOD? is a brilliant examination of an age-old question by a renowned scientist. 237 pages, DRM-free, $4.99 on Amazon, at iTunes, and at the Castalia House store.
