Next to my bed lies a stack of books, the one on top right now is "The Meaning of Conservatism" by the late Sir Roger Scruton. For Sir Scruton, conservatism was not merely about politics, but rather about love and beauty.

During the past few weeks I've been able to follow some great entertainment in what has become known as the Groyper War, which is focused on real life trolling in a well-presented manner by asking well crafted questions at Conservatism Inc events.

A year and a half out from the cannabis referendum and the air is thick with pot-head panegyrics to the delights of Mary Jane. Well I’m here to tell you the dope fiends have got it wrong. It’s almost as if their minds have been befuddled.

Last Thursday, Elliot Ikilei, the deputy leader of the New Conservative Party logged on to his Twitter account to find out he had been suspended from the platform. What was his crime? Did he say something hateful or dishonest?

To understand the motives, the risk factors, and the background of the killer is essential for the prevention of further such episodes. But Brenton Tarrant has left behind a perplexing array of clues designed to obfuscate his true intentions.

I'd like to clear up some misconceptions about right/left politics. As a politically active young man in my twenties, I often find myself engaging in the same debates over and over again. If only a consensus could be reached on the definition of left-wing and right-wing politics.

In the wake of the devastating events of last Friday there have been, and will be, fingers pointed at those who hold conservative or right-wing views. This is unfair, but understandable.

Since the New Conservative Party was holding a public meeting in anticipation of contesting a possible Botany by-election, I thought I'd go have a listen as I live in the area. The turnout was a near full house, with almost every one of the sixty-odd seats filled.

In the last week our media has reported on a lot of foreign fake news. One story was about Kentucky students who supposedly surrounded and intimidated a American Indian man beating on his drums. They even mocked the haka!

It's been over two months since I attended the Nigel Farage event in Auckland, but a few weeks ago someone sent me a link to the following tweet. I thought that I was just some guy who put his opinions in the internet in the hopes that someone, or anyone, would find them interesting.

A Quiet Place, a horror film currently second in the U.S box office, has managed to piss off the kinds of people I feel sure Right Mind’s readers would be quite happy were pissed off. For starters, it's pro-family, pro-life, and pro-gun. The film is also brilliantly acted, paced, and scored.
