Dear world: I’ve decided to rebrand as Danny K, my original title. I do this for my Creator, for my family, and for my home countries, Syria & Armenia [The Middle East at large – Falastin], for my grandfather’s legacy of ingenious, and finally, perhaps selfishly, for myself.
From now on you can follow me on all social media outlets [Twitter, Instagram & Facebook] via @dannyk1988/@dannykrikorian.
New album coming SOON.
It will be available via Spotify, TIDAL & Apple Music/iTunes – this September.
Stay tuned for more updates. Show dates TBA. Visit the store to purchase new shirts for the upcoming album & to preorder a physical copy of the album itself.
I think liberalism is often understood as a progressive ideology, but the roots of this word are rooted in classical liberalism and the philosophical pessimism of Thomas Hobbes as much as it is in the idealism of Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
While I do believe that progressivism and liberalism have some objectives in common, I do believe that competition, free markets, and realism are important elements missing from the former.
I do agree in redistribution of monetary funds to rebalance the market, but I also support individual rights and have a respect for labor, and the american virtue of self-reliance and individualism.
However, fundamentalism creeps its way into every philosophy, and liberalism has been twisted into two groups: you are either a libertarian anarchist or an environmentalist scientific materialist.
The problem is that we have a society of capitalists who seek to make money off the work of others, instead of a society where individuals prosper off their own self-determined economic routes.
On one corner is the religious dogmatists, and in the other, the irreligious fanatics. All who suffer live in the middle; representing a minority of moderate, secular-spiritual persuasion.
Usury and anarch-capitalism will be defeated. All fundamentalism, be it zionist, christian, islamist, ideological – will be defeated.
There is no excuse for ignorance about global politics and international affairs. If you don’t know any history, anything about current and prospective affairs, you don’t want to know — and as a result, you contribute negatively to global affairs.
