May 10th, 2021A few years ago my mentor told me the following …There are no parents upstairs.He told me this during a great doubt in my life. Everything was so fucking complex, and this was before COVID came online. Even doing the basic stuff was difficult.

A new religion has erupted. It has taken over newsrooms, radio waves, HR departments, social feeds and film scripts. It dictates your playlists on Netflix. It tells you what language is acceptable, and what will be punished. It is not religion as we know it, but a simulated religion; a uniquely decentralised and leaderless cult of the internet age.Incubated in the critical theory of the far left, it was birthed by an ideology that views reality as socially constructed and defined by power, oppression and group identity. Now, it has metastasised into its own entity. It has been given many names, …
