Cantandum in Ezkhaton 08/25/19

This week’s photo theme is ‘What I Did on My Summer Vacation.” It’s good to be back. It’s also good to take a break, which helps clear one’s head and allow thoughts and ideas to solidify in one’s life. For instance…

Christianity beats Progressivism. Except this comparison is ridiculous. Christianity preaches that no matter what you have suffered, you are not the sum of your suffering and through faith in God and accepting Christ as your saviour, you can be gloriously redeemed and renewed and achieve the crescendo of your existence, as God intended. Progressivism says no matter what, you are the sum of what oppresses you, and can never be redeemed or renewed. Surrendering your agency to the state or to SJWs of some kind is your only option, further insuring you can never rise to your potential.

Christianity insists you act as if Heaven can be achieved here on Earth now by adjusting your attitude. Progressivism says it can never be done, so let’s make life here Hell. It is the work of Satan on Earth.

Endeavour has a video on his coming around to Reaction. MANDATORY viewing for Canadians!

Fragility: When a 75 minute flight delay means you end up laid over in Vancouver for two days, your air service is fragile. NNTaleb would probably agree. However, as Z Man points out, we could still be wrong.

Epstein is dead, allowed to hang himself in his cell in a fit of despair I’m sure. Nothing to see here. Seriously, most of the errors and omissions by the guards are not surprising. It seems inmates die like that often: no one working in a prison likely feels obligated to give a fuck about a pedophile in their custody. Counter Currents Publishing rightly states that this event will be seen as a conspiracy, no matter how innocuous the truth is. Given the timing of Epstein’s arrest a few weeks before Mueller’s testimony on Russiagate, my fanciful theory is that this was Trump’s team sending a message: you try to take me down with a fake scandal (Russiagate) and I will take one of yours out with a real scandal. They knew that all that had to happen was his arrest, and someone on the inside (connected, hired, or otherwise) would take care of the rest.

Titania McGrath

Counter Currents also has a cool guide to all things Lovecraft, plus what At the Mountains of Madness teaches us about Lovecraft’s racial views. Part I of a look at the coming Apocalypse by overpopulation.

Hear the call?

Speaking of Cthulhu, Thomas Burtonneau on The Call of Cthulhu and parallels to wokeness. (Malcolm comments and links to it here.) Plus, Hitler’s Chomsky’s take on capitalist democracy.

Dr. Spencer discusses his recent experience with back pain and surgery. For you lifters, form is everything.

Cambria Will Not Yield against rationalism.

Thorne, Altar, Liberty with an affirmation of Mencius Moldbug: the modern left came from Puritanism.

I thought museums were in the Cathedral already. But it seems there is pushback against defining them as Proggresive.

Our Statistician to the Tsars, Mr. Briggs, begins the week with the next installment in the Summa Thelogica: Summary Against Modern Thought – What It Means to Speak of Fortune. On issues of causation, racist AI, and Ezra Klein’s misunderstanding of it. No, fluoride does not make for dumb boys or smart girls. Well, it appears Satan’s work on Earth need not be secret anymore. The UK bans gender stereotypes, which should get rid of the nasty vestiges of reality in their media. A Jesuitical Jesuit’s Devil Denying Deception…’nuff said. He closes the week with This Week In Doom – Cuck-A-Doodle-Do Edition.

Z Man on Zionism in America. Also, on the civic religion of anti-racism. He discusses problems with Intelligent Design. An interesting thought experiment leads to some conclusions on Trump’s economic policies. His latest Z Blog Power Hour podcast is a late-summer mixer of topics. Z Man also has a look at policy towards Jews in medieval times.

PA Blog discusses the cracking facade of racial tolerance. He discusses transcendence by intoxication.

Myth of the 20th Century’s latest podcast is on the Skull and Bones Society.

The Anti-Gnostic weighs in on immigration, pointing out that open borders is the antithesis of sovereignty.

Alf in the Garden with his favourite Jim quotes. Just click and go read it. It’s great. Also, on inception of a new faith.

The Orthosphere on the origins of the term Rat Row and some examples. A follow-up about a visit to a modern version of the same. On Ontological Relativism, the latest fashionable philosophical perspective, which lets you be whatever you want by self-identification.

Malcolm and how the NYT “has let slip the dogs of war!”, and follows-up on the 1619 project.

Steve Sailer shows enviropimpin’ ain’t easy, but it sure is fun. Also, you can’t make this stuff up: the hate symbols of our time, Pepe and Peppa. His weekly column in Taki magazine is on the NYT’s 1619 project, a retcon project of epic proportions. Baby Boomers were not a big deal in the 60s. It seems obvious now that he said it (good comments on this article too.)

20190804_103201

Council of European Canadians discusses consciousness arising from the masculine in the work of Camille Paglia.

VDH on the use of Social Justice as a distraction from immediate problems.

RottenChestnuts on why you should continue to fear AOC. His analysis of AOC is spot on. Malicious Ignorance is a good term for that kind of college girl, and my law school had many stellar examples. Although, I’ve known a few such women who actually were too stupid to even get into college. Further, a discussion of the causes of The Great War and application to modern times. Also, a simple explanation of how violence is not free speech just because Antifa did it.

American Sun with Part II of the tactics used in Ireland’s troubles. An essay on the works of Augusto Del Noce, dealing with his attempts to reframe thinking on modernity. Some diet advice from Superlutheran. Ending the week: Five Friday Reads.

20190817_065807

Heartiste at Gab on Progressive envy:

Riffing off a few gabliloquies I wrote recently on the topic of the Censorial Left, an additional psychological undercurrent that motivates Woke Whites to censor, ostracize, and harass Volk Whites is pure envy and a feeling of impotent frustration.

To understand what I mean, you must accept the premise that Woke Whites (shitlibs) monitor themselves constantly. They are in a perpetual state of self-policing, fearing more than anything the social repercussions of giving air to BadViews or Crimethink. The White shitlib lives with a latent terror that he or she or xir will accidentally blurt out a Raw Feeling or an Unauthorized Opinion on matters race or sex, and suffer the consequences of a Schoolmarm Swarm. They police their thoughts almost as assiduously as they police their words, because they know secret impure thoughts are the fast track to a public Twatter suspension. Loose limbics sink tight lips. Orwell called it Crimestop.

Imagine the mental energy and emotional toll this takes on a person. We all have filters — you don’t want to kill the party by loudly asking the fat girl if she’s had enough cake — but the White shitlib amplifies this generic social politeness to a pathological degree, applying that filter to every waking thought that flits across her brain, hyper-aware of what thoughts could lead to trouble. The self-monitoring must be exhausting, and silently humiliating.

From this toxic shitlib emotional stew bubbles a seething envy of FreeWhites who freely give lebensraum to their thoughts and voice to their illicit concerns. The self-monitoring White shitllib HATES HATES HATES the liberated abandon of the Whites who aren’t imprisoned by ideological filters. The shitlib White’s envy is rocket fueled by the accompanying feeling of impotence to enjoy the same freedoms of the FreeWhites, but instead of giving herself those freedoms (which would threaten her superzip social standing, can’t have that) she aggressively works to strip away the freedoms enjoyed by the FreeWhites.

Misery loves company, and the White shitlib wants every White person as strait-jacketed by the self-monitoring as she must endure. She’d rather contribute to her society’s destruction than let you have your joy.

Speaking of that kind of envy, a young girl’s attempt to force her way into a 554 year old all-boys choir is rejected. (They also have an all-girls choir she could join. But, we know that’s not what this was about.)

Overcoming Bias on How Idealists Aid Cheaters.

Rex Murphy, Herald of New Hibernia, on the problems with Canada’s elitist Greens and their plans to save all from prosperity.

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 08/04/19

IMG_0558

Housekeeping: this week’s Cantandum will be short, as I’m off to parts unknown. The next Cantandum will be August 25th.

The American Sun on the need for a reactionary/Christian bank to preserve our sovereignty. A Garfield primer, or what a cartoon cat can teach us about living. Bronze Age Pervert guests, with a post on Israel’s problem. RTWT. The ever interesting an popular Five Friday Reads, with comments on Marianne Williamson and the futility of reparations.

Al fin discusses Elon Musk’s errors and the larger problems with renewable energy.

Audacious Epigone has an important lesson, looking back at Versailles. Also, what to do about those who hate whites: apply the best label. He discusses a proposed way for the dissolution of the United States.

BurkeReflections

Council of European Canadians discusses Edmond Burke’s Reflections on the Revolution in France and how the revolution impacts us today. Also, it appears the Canadian West Coast is not all Left Coast after all: All Aboard with Transgender Ideology. (An aside: one does not need to spend too much time north of the Nanaimo to realize central and north Vancouver Island is remaining relatively Progress free, although I’m not sure how much longer that will last.)

Steve McIntyre over a Climate Audit revives a post from 2014. This site is worth a look should you be interested in some of the problems with the Climate EmergencyTM science. Dr. Spencer explains why July was not the warmest month on record.

Guillaume Durocher summarizes a recent paper on population genetics in France: Indigenous French Ethno-Genetic Diversity.

Throne, Altar, Liberty has a new superhero for our ages: The Adventures of Reactionary Man!

Myth of 20th Century with their weekly podcast on The Israel Lobby.

VDH on Woke Racism, being a commentary on projection by the Left.

William Briggs begins the week with Summary Against Modern Thought: Both God and You Can Move Your Will. A reader asks about the statistical reliability of organizational psychology. On why privacy is going extinct, and by the way, the NSA knows you read that. Did the universe come from nothing? Mr. Briggs says no. It really is the ultimate form of nihilism to insist it did. Also, challenges to Darwin’s ideas of evolution. Mr. Brigg’s examines the warnings about the threat of Christian Nationalism.

Just Thomism on the many kinds of love, and why we find it insipid at times.

Anatoly Karlin on Russia’s version of Chick-fil-a. He tours and reviews the Jewish Museum and Center for Tolerance in Moscow.

MANDATORY game test over at Setting the Record Straight: Test of your Game: Human Zoology Edition.

Evolutionist X with Part I of a review of Legal Systems Very Different From Our Own.

Soph has a video on Pride Day. It did not survive a YouTube purge and neither did her channel, so a mirror is here on Bitchute.

Alf with an update on his book, pondering what to call the new religion.

A decent article over at the NYT about the politicization of art in modern times. There is a reference to blank slatism in the article, implying that art and culture define what emotions we feel, and otherwise we have no inherent feelings. This is nonsense.

b18b98fb2b6d4d4798e18b7dc718ea4b

Diana, Joseph-François Ducq

What art does is in part communicate a human experience in a different media which remains accessible long after the people who had the experiences, the languages, the places and cultures are long gone. I don’t need to be an Mayan, be steeped in Mayan culture, or speak Yucatec to look upon Chichen Itza and feel the awe that Mayans would have when it was a hub of their culture a thousand years ago. The more art I see, the more I know about myself because the more I understand humans, some of whom lived hundreds of years ago. It is the ability of art to communicate the human experience across time, irrespective of language and culture that makes it powerful. Modern art is vacuous precisely because it utterly fails to communicate in such a manner.
I cannot see Venus by Lucas (the Elder) Cranach (c. 1518, in the National Gallery in Ottawa; could not find an image online) without recognizing it is a representation of a young woman whom Lucas was very confused about, wanting to care for like a daughter on one hand, and feeling desire for on the other hand. His state of mind, very conflicted, is communicated clear as day to me, 500 years after the fact, long after the artist and subject have perished, his language and culture altered greatly in the intervening years. I had these feelings before I saw Venus. But when I saw Cranach’s portrait, I knew that somewhere long ago, someone else had those feelings too. Transmitted through time is the message that I, in my conflicted feelings, am not alone, but share an experience with fellow men across time. Thus is the power of art.

With “modern” art, I see nothing but a self-loathing which is incomprehensible, and so, is rightly sterile and a nullity.

At the Orthosphere, Kristor discusses the conflation of incompatible ends, with respect to his recent post on tonlieu: Conflation of Ends is Confusion of Means & of Men. Mr. Bertonneau on the Hector Berlioz, a most unexpected French composer, and also composer Frederick Delius. A look at erotic madness, its roots and the results when it’s not restrained. Blind Justice, on a concern I share, when proper law tries to deal with the wrong problem. A Philosophical Skeleton key: Causation is Stochastic. A quick lesson on tariffs: Enclosing the National Commons. A visit to Tehuacana, Texas and a lament for the state of higher education in America: A Little College On a Hill.

PA Blog commemorates the Warsaw uprising…and applies it to our troubled times. The last video he features is too good not to repost:

Forgive me if I write it incorrectly: Niech żyje wolna Polska!

Steve Sailer reviews Quentin Tarantino’s latest film. His thoughts on how elite women athletes find husbands (don’t let the title fool you).

Another teacher who cares quits teaching: The Dying Art of Instruction in the Digital Classroom.

RottenChestnuts with an adjunct to Hanlon’s Razor: The Severian Corollary.

The Scholar’s Stage gives a methodology for studying human society.

Razib Khan on why cultures explode then fizzle.

A Blue Night in Innsbruck.

Rex Murphy, Herald of New Hibernia, discusses what a xirl has to do to get xir scrotum waxed in Canada. This is so odd, it’s hard to tell if Yaniv is trolling, LARPing, mentally disturbed, sincere, or perhaps a false flag. I’d make satirical comments, but Poe’s Law would apply instantaneously. Evolutionist X also chimes in.

Z Man begins the week with Orange versus Black, on Trump’s comments about Baltimore. He discusses how we may be organizing into distinct subcultures: A Future of Cults & Subcultures. On the archetypal campaign of Kris Kobach of Kansas, now running for Senatorship. He discusses the stratification of society by race: Biological Feudalism. On Round Dos of the Democratic Party debates:

Of course, the point of these ridiculous shows they are calling political debates is to normalize the crap-fest heading our way. The future is not going to be a boot stamping a human face. The future is going to be a parade of formerly marginal people mewing about their troubles, while a mysterious brown women tells war stories. What we saw the last two nights is a society running on the capital built up over generations, by people no longer allowed to be in charge of their society

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 07/28/19

The doctrine of the natural origin and growth of society is the distinctive Tory doctrine of England, the very opposite to the theories of Locke and the Fathers of our late Republic. In adopting it, we begin a great conservative reaction. We attempt to roll back the Reformation in its political phases; for we saw everywhere in Europe and America reformation running to excess, a universal spirit of destructiveness, a profane attempt to pull down what God and nature had built up and to erect ephemeral Utopia in its place. Liberty was degenerating into licentiousness, and “anarchy, plus the street constable,” stared us in the face. We lead off a new reactionary Reformation, and Christendom must follow our lead, or soon be involved in social chaos and confusion.

George Fitzhugh, The Revolutions of 1776 and 1861 Contrasted, (1863).

What was it those Cylon hybrids said? “All this has happened before and will happen again.

Endeavour is a Canadian Reactionary YouTube channel I’ve recently found. The following video is an excellent review and a great place to start for those new to Reaction. Do WTWT.

Part I is here.

Over at Setting the Record Straight, Aidan MacLear considers rape and sexual regulation. Do RTWT.

Throne, Altar, Liberty with some fiction on Lucifer’s Apocalyptic efforts: Brother Moonpie and the Devil’s Apocalypse.

Cambria Will Not Yield – Unstudied From The Heart:

Traditionalist movements based on an intellectual adherence to abstract systems are not the type of tradition we need. We need a heartfelt faith, we need our Jesus, who lived in the hearts of the antique Europeans and will come to the hearts of the men and women who ‘regress’ to old Europe.

Also from CWNY, The Humanity of God and the Inhumanity of the Liberals, well worth an RTWT.

Alf has an update on his book. Also, his thoughts on Memetic Sovereignty.

Jim discusses the Mueller Testimony. I don’t think Mueller is senile (at least to the extent he portrayed). He was evasive and slimy about it. If someone had asked him “Why can’t you “go there”?” he probably would have suddenly gone deaf to avoid answering shortly before pleading the fifth. Jim is correct, Mueller is aware of some greater dirt.

Malcolm gives a service notice and a recap of this week’s events.

A report from American Interest on the colonization of East Germany by West Germany and the cracks in the facade of German unity:

Everyone here is getting nuts about the climate issue,” Antje Hermenau tells me over drinks that same night on Dresden’s historic town square. She would know: a native of nearby Leipzig and longtime resident of Dresden, Hermenau was a Bundestag member for the Greens soon after reunification. But she has since broken with the national party, to great public controversy, seeing the Greens as disconnected from the fundamental concerns of average Saxons. Her complaints can sound familiar. Today’s Greens are urbane bohemians who look down on rural residents, she says, intent on regulating the diesel cars that sustain their livelihoods out of existence. In Bundestag hearings they grandstand about the necessity of installing unisex toilets in Berlin while ignoring the economic plight of their countrymen.

… …
Hermenau has no nostalgia for the communist era. She sees the German Democratic Republic (GDR) as an illegitimate regime that was brutally imposed upon a traditionally conservative populace; she herself was on the front lines opposing it in 1989. But when she talks about the Cold War legacy, she inverts the usual formula: It was the West, not the East, whose development went off track. Even under communist subjugation, she tells me, East Germans knew who they were: 1989 was a “Christian and conservative revolt,” she says, “not a leftist one.” But West Germans, by virtue of their Cold War alliance with the West, came to embrace an identity that was not their own. No longer identifying with Mitteleuropa, they rebranded themselves as Westerners, full stop—and became cut off from their roots and their kinsmen.

Newly discovered, Just Thomism, largely philosophical. These two caught my eye: on Knowledge, and on what is cognition: Levels of being as effecting unity.

The Orthosphere starts the week with what makes for a durable party line. On the duty and rewards of leaving the beaten path: Through a Cockeyed Gate. On what is and what can be truth, and what can be acted on is veridicial. On how to deal with projecting SJWs. The origins of the phrase “tacky”, as related to horses and people, adna follow-up: the Sandhillers. Mr. Burtonneau with a post on the works of Nicolas Berdyaev.

From City Journal, Everything You Don’t Know About Mass Incarceration.

Steve Sailer with the interesting yet not really unexpected results of the Trinidadian Marshmallow test. RTWT. His weekly column in Taki’s magazine on increasing white immigration.

PA Blog on the cognitive dissonance of the Millennials. Also, a quick word on Generation X. Good Night Left Side, on a recent violent assault in Wrocław, with the following ideological distinction:

the Right is aligned with Truth, the Left with Power. Another way of saying this is that the right serves Christ and the left Satan. This is the irreducible ideological distinction.

William Briggs with This Week In Doom: So Long, Whites Edition. When Leftists say they must be ‘Lincolnesque’, I assume they mean the solution requires the death of whites in the hundreds of thousands. But let’s check the source (Kevin Drum at Mother Jones):

“Reactionary American whites, as always, won’t give up their power unless it’s taken from them by either a literal or figurative war. Liberals need to be as Lincolnesque¹ as possible in this endeavor—we don’t have to win the votes of unrepentent bigots, just the fretful fence-sitters—but we also need to be Lincolnesque² in our commitment to winning the Trump-inspired race war we’re now in the middle of.

 

¹That is, with malice toward none and charity for all.

 

²That is, with an iron determination to win.

 

UPDATE: I’ve made a couple of very slight wording changes to the last paragraph, just to make it absolutely clear what I mean here.”

Civil War II it is. VDH has similar concerns: Can’t We All Just Get Along? Audacious Epigone has a solution: End the Hate, Separate, and a follow-up: Answering objections to dissolution. Where the progressives in North America are today reminds me of this gem from Type O Negative (remember, this was a mocking parody, although I don’t think Mr. Steele knew he’d be mocking BLM; Poe’s law in action):

Mr. Briggs continues the Sunday tradition – Summary Against Modern Thought: Physics Cannot Show Our Wills Are Not Free. He also wins an Ignoble award…his acceptance speech is priceless. Bravo Sir! It looks like there will be a week long strike in September to protest greenhouse gasesclimate changeglobal warmingthe climate crisis…the climate herpes emergency! What’s the probability of a nuclear war? Our statistician has your answer. Speaking of important questions: How Can Any Religion Have a Monopoly on Truth? His weekly This Week In Doom: Who’s George Washington? Edition, or, why it takes $600,000 to paint over a mural…it can’t be white paint, ’cause, you know.

A dissident right review of DOOM: Eternal. People are waking up.

Council of European Canadians on Google’s electioneering by search engine results. I’m not sure the title is correct but the article is interesting. A very simple look at the Secret of the Family Farm, or what has been lost when the traditional farm vanished. Also, does Canada commit ‘genocide’ against indigenous women? No, but they really want you to feel like Canada does.

James True with the Government is the Mafia.

Z Man with what white people need to do. Maybe saying something like: “This is who we are and this is how we live, because it is the way we want it.” Now, doesn’t that beat grovelling any day of the week? His thoughts on what comes next from the Left, and what to do about it. An excellent essay on modern alienation: Alienation and Its Discontents. Z Man also reviews the latest in political theater, this week’s Mueller hearing. His weekly Z Blog Power Hour, the 100th episode, this week, a world tour of current events. Are we entering the Age of Anti-Knowledge? Probably, as reality does not care how one feels about it. We need a new elite, because:

The current elites are rotten to the core. They are irredeemable. There’s no talking them out of their corruption or appealing to their humanity, at least not until they are on the gallows. These are people who now define themselves in opposition to that which makes nations possible and makes a people possible. For the people of the West to regain their sense of self, to make countries into homelands again, it means replacing the current elites.

The American Sun with the continuing history of the Eternal Anglo, Part III. Also, Part I of the Tactics of the Troubles, a look at the Irish independence movements and their tactics. An article on man’s use of technology to avoid engaging in life, sex, and death. Ask not for whom the bell tolls…it tolls for thee, Netflix. Mr. Landry with the Costco size 10 Friday Reads.

Evolutionist X on the new civil religion: Woketianity.

Anatoly Karlin on the fate of Sikorski’s engineers in the USSR Plus, the comment that should not be ignored.

The Myth of the 20th Century crew’s weekly podcast, an interview with James Lafond: Return of Champions – Fighting For Territory in the Ruins of Civilization.

Razib Khan looks at the genetic basis for Hungarian nationalism. Also, on the Passport Class:

At some point, the passport holders need to put neoclassical economic textbooks to the side and accept that there are non-economic variables which generate social cohesion and positive externalities, which allow for prosperity. And the acidic impact of globalization is eroding those factors across the developed world, resulting in the rise of populism.

Also, Razib has a post examining Privilege, another on how social status undermines White privilege. Razib considers himself conservative and his ideas are more mainstream, but he also treats the ideology of the progressives very skeptically.

Titania McGrath, again taking us to that place where laughter becomes a sinking feeling:

Something to lift your spirits (trigger warning: white people celebrating stuff white people made; encourages caring for family, women doing domestic work, disproportionate emotional labour, and self-sacrifice).

Keep on reactin’ and be like the owl (for now).

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 07/21/19

This one will be a bit short, as I’m headed back to higher elevations. I’ll catch up next week.

Leading the important news of the week, the BC Human Rights Tribunal heard a case this week where a transgender woman was denied her Charter protected right to have a Brazilian. This madness will not end. Our governments no longer work to make a safe, certain and secure nation, but for the opposite. It’s not a bug but a feature of the system.

William Briggs opens the week with his ongoing translation of Thomas Aquinas Summa Theologica (it’s a labour of love, lasting years, and will likely go on for several more). This week — Summary Against Modern Thought: The Stars Don’t Make Our Choices. The newest Bond film will feature a black woman as 007. William leaks the script. In England, the 500 year protest appears to be coming to an end. A post on man making himself God, and therefore the only source of new knowledge, as predicted in 1947: The Religion of Man Triumphant. An interesting one on why a significant number of drugs add no new benefits. The conceit of AI, and what you should actually worry about in our Internet Age.

Evolutionist X on discovering your Dad was not your Dad, and extended families. She has a Moon Landing Celebration Playlist. Well done my Lady. Also, a quick review of a paper on the peoples of the lost land of Beringia.

Guillaume Durocher on Pharos, the new website making sure the correct view of Antiquity is that seen through the Progressive lense.

Council of Canadian Europeans on the fragility of cities.

Scholar’s Stage with a review of Strategy: A History by Lawrence Freedman, which turns into a compelling argument for why modern intellectuals do not seem all that smart.

Smoking Girl – ‘nuf said.

The Myth of the 20th Century with their weekly podcast, this week on the development of the F-35 fighter jet program.

PA Blog on the western rules behind citizens using violence to enforce order, the aptly named Animal Control in Augsburg.

VDH on the rise of American unexceptionalism and its motives and consequences.

From the Hedgehog Review, an answer to the question of why modern man is so unhappy: Homo Saecularis.

Jim on Trump closing the asylum loophole in the US. On General Flynn’s involvement in the shitshow of delusion known as Russiagate.

James True defines Satanism. Also, his thoughts on government by CNN, and what they are aiming for:

These people only want you on your knees so you beg for virtue. This is how you manage a prana farm.

Flogging the ego in public only shows people you’re a masochist. Terms like “white privilege,” “toxic masculinity,” and “white nationalist” are the tools of this trade. If you think your genitals, melatonin, or political affiliation is a source of shame, you are living in a syringe of self-loathing. This narcissism will manifest with you seeing the outer world as racist, sexist, or xenophobic, too. This is the technology of projection.

… …
Love yourself completely. Kids are watching. We don’t want them growing up in a sick world. The ego is a good thing. Pride is a good thing. These are fountainheads of morality. A weak ego is a curly straw for vampires. A society is broken when it saunters through the streets swinging the cat-of-nine-tails. These awards for the most dramatic bleeding are incarnated masochism. Rise up in your spine. Stop pretending you are a virus on the earth. You are the living soil. These words are a wet seed that grows.

RottenChestnuts has an ongoing essay on Political Theory. Part IV discusses the individual and how they may not be so good for the nation. The People, Reconsidered poses that politics is control over individuals. Part II of The People… discusses the problems of individuals who rule us today. Also, the Democrats are going to the guns…only who they shoot at is in question. Speaking of going to guns, when is the next John Brown moment? It might start with an impeachment.

I’ve thought this applies to Canada as well. With all the rhetoric sophistry the Libtards are throwing about on foreign interference in this Fall’s federal election, should Le Dauphin, notre petite pomme de terre, not be affirmed as the rightful sovereign of Canada, I give it a 16.67% chance he stages some kind of coup. It won’t be anything original: expect a polite version of Russiagate. Given his unrestrained adoration of Castro, one might think he would try a military coup. I doubt DND will find him charming enough for that.

Tears come to the progressive eyes.

Z Man begins the week with a well done critique of Yoram Hazony’s book The Virtues of Nationalism. You’ll learn a bit about nationalism. The comments are also worth a look. He details his trip to the Imperial Capital and the National Conservatism conference. Part II is here. On white identity politics and Self Loathing As Medicine. He discusses the Left’s mastery of the media, and how to start winning minds again. A particularly good Z Blog Power Hour, the July Grab Bag.

Wrath of Gnon, memory:

A busy week for the Orthosphere. It begins with Thomas Bertonneau visiting an NY WWII air show for fun. Kristor discusses the optimal tonlieu, a payment for which you are granted access to and enjoy the protections of a state, as a way to deal with the immigration crisis. He also responds to Chastek’s Good Question, as to why we continue in spite of nominalism. Thoughts on what to do with savages: Lay Down Your Pitchfork. A suggestion on proper criticism.

Steve Sailer showing that the purity spirals may be running out of material: World War H. His weekly column in Taki magazine is well worth a read, this week on what’s up with African population growth.

Throne, Altar, Liberty on the Anglican Church of Canada’s recent synod, where allowing same sex marriages under canon law was narrowly voted down: A Cause Neither Lost Nor Gained. It took zero time for the church to promise to review it’s own governance structure in light of this result. This quote is telling:

“My community doesn’t — pardon the expression — give a rat’s tahootie about what 14 bishops across this country think, and that’s what it came down to is 14 bishops,” George said. “If we’re going to follow what God is telling us to do, we need to be able to hear all the voices that are in the room.”

American Sun continues The Eternal Anglo, with Part II discussing the Norman and Anglo-Saxon history of the British Isles. A critique of Disney’s Marvel Trash Theatre. A modest proposal for what to do with the Boomers: work with Late Boomers to revitalize your community. On the miscegenation of whites in the southwest, and the real possibility of its farmers winding up in the same spot as the Boers.

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 07/14/19

Something near and dear to my heart to start the week: reparations for the Norman conquest of 1066. Once the Normans took over, the native language, Old English, fell out of favour (who can blame them…all those cases and agglutinated words). I’m now oppressed by my own language, speaking a pidgin of Old English and Norman French, which constantly reminds me of the Norman pillage and rape of my ancestors (maybe), plus makes it almost impossible to get myself drunk in Iceland.

Norman Coat of Arms. Those lions subliminally encourage raping Anglo-Saxons.

Speaking of when the collective guilt should end, an article on the malaise in modern Deutschland and a review of Finis Germania by Rolf Peter Sieferle.

The Council of European Canadians on Canada Day celebrations, when there is not much left to celebrate. Also, a guest post on what to do about UK universities. On how Chernobyl is the model for the human-free future. On Christianity and the Modern West, which adds to the evidence of what I suspect is true, that Christianity was a fundamental part of the rise of the western civilization.

The Neo-Ciceroneon times has a great post on reparations and the current power structure: Reparations as Intraelite Competition.

Throne, Altar, Liberty on Bishop Strachan and the Soul of Canada.

Best Tweet ever.

On thinking of the children, Faith Goldy looks at the CBC campaign to liberate your children from their socially constructed gender.

American Sun opens the week with the Eternal Anglo – Part I, which discusses English history and the International Yankee. On the Homosexual Public Health Crisis. On modern loneliness as expressed through literature: Quiet Desperation Is The American Way. As usual, a highly interesting Five Friday Reads.

This week’s Myth of the 20th Century podcast, on speculative fiction. Set phasers on total geek out!

Everyone likes the Cuban cutie from Blade Runner 2049.

An interesting take on Trump’s power plays, from James True.

Cambria Will Not Yield: The Image of the Beast Shall Die.

People are really up in arms about Jeffery Epstein’s arrest. I’ve been under a rock, but ZeroHedge has been covering the matter quite well. James True considers Epstein’s “science” ventures. For a ragey analysis, see Mr. Molyneaux:

Many have hopes this will be the end of the deep state, the Clintons’ downfall, or be Trump’s revenge for Russiagate. I think that’s unlikely. If that many rich and powerful people are involved, it will be no surprise when Mr. Epstein hangs himself in his cell. Either that or gets helped into one of these (courtesy Apocalyptic Revolutionary).

The Agonist with an article on who makes sure academia remains Left, that being the academic Right.

A new find: the RottenChestnuts blog. He’s got some discussion of political theory going on at his site, but this week’s link is to how he thinks we may see the posting of 95 theses against the SJW Church soon.

PA Blog on a day in the countryside, encounters with the Amish, and the Hussein way to deal with bad ideas.

GA Blog on the language of resentment. SJWs act like spoiled children because they will not grow the hell up. And why would they? They were coddled all their lives, told they were all special snowflakes that could do anything they wanted, and then found out that reality either melts snowflakes or crushes them into ice. Anyways, GA Blog states:

Maturity means being able to notice more and more distinctions—and all distinctions are on some level invidious—while attending more and more to the formalizing of those distinctions, rather than to seeking out their justifications. The most egalitarian world possible would instantly turn into the most inegalitarian one: imagine we could all be placed in a state of nature, with equal physical and intellectual capabilities. As soon as we got started doing something, status distinctions would emerge—someone notices something first, someone gets a little more of something, someone, maybe for random reasons, is a bit more attractive than others, etc. Even if the differences were minute and rapidly changing they would loom large. So, everyone would be immediately, and constantly, faced with the choice: you can think, how do I get as much as that person (or reduce him to as little as me); how do I make myself as attractive as that person (or reduce his attractiveness), and so on; or, how can these status distinctions be formalized, so that what it means to have access to things, to identify new centers, to be the center of others’ attention can be made explicit and therefore a source of order. You might still want more things, to have more power, to be more attractive, and you might use others as models to acquire these things, but you would do so in such a way as to strengthen the meaning the center has conferred upon such practices.

Evolutionist X with some thoughts on fame: Fame Is Terrible for People. On American Senescence, and the consequences of an aging population.

Mr. Briggs begins the week with Summary Against Modern Thought: The Heavens Do Not Control All. His thoughts on how “being” a homosexual is a sin. The Cranky Professor guest posts a refutation of physicalism. Mr. Briggs reviews a new paper on the scientific meaninglessness of psychiatric diagnoses. Guest Ianto Watt on Islam as a relgion you might choose: Your Most Important Choice Part III. To finish the week, This Week In Doom – Tranny Madness is Big Business Edition.

James True on why Flat Earth Theory has come back.

Z Man’s thoughts on the next big scandal, involving the FBI, Clinton, and all that nonsense over Russian collusion. On the never ending spiral of white hatred that defines the ANC Democrats. On Usurpers, such as Lincoln, who remade the US, and those currently doing the same. What the slow (then quick) descent of western civilization will look like: A Darker Shade of Pale. On the problems of liberal democracy and unrestrained ideology overcoming basic principles of law: At War With Ourselves. His weekly Z Blog Power Hour: Lessons From Revolution. Z Man also discusses the Left’s obsession with denying reality: The War On Nature.

Alf at Garden of the Internet on those who think they can harness the power that is sending the world to hell: To Boromir. Also, on the need for religion as highlighted by Mr. Tomassi’s recent post on blue/red pill philosophical differences.

From Wrath of Gnon:

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 06/30/19

Housekeeping: This week is short due to my being out of coverage for the next several days. There will be no Cantandum for next week. I should get a blog roll started so folks can head to the primary sources during such gaps.

You know, finding nice smoking girl pictures is hard. But it’s way easier using DuckDuckGo. I wonder why…

I missed several posts on Alf’s Garden of the Internet. He discusses creating a new religion: Getting Into Gnon’s Favour. What the Alt Right label means and on intellectuals: Not your typical intellectual. A hard look at economic purchasing power. How the left can’t ‘Cool’, and we can.

Neo-Ciceroneon Times with an apt description of the Left: Overgrown Children.

Council of European Canadians on the New Racism, and how the term has morphed to apply only to whites. Also, think of the triggered children!

William Briggs begins the week with the ongoing translation of Aquinas’ Summa Theologica. This week’s Summary Against Modern Thought: Celestial Bodies Do Not Control Our Bodies. On sphere eversion and free will. This Week in Doom: Lavender Mafia Edition. Guest writer Ianto Watt on Your Most Important Choice: about religion and faith. A taste:

A bet? That’s what life is all about. Making the bet. Why? Because you’ll never gain complete knowledge in this life. Without that, no choice is more than just a bet. Ultimately, you’re betting on what you want. After all, this place is so marvelously constructed that you can’t truly tell whether we are the result of chance or design. Bark all you want, Weiner-Dog. You can’t prove it, either way. Don’t bother bloviating. I ain’t listening. You can’t prove it. Nobody can. At least, not to the other guy. Maybe to yourself. But let’s not kid ourselves. You can’t even convince yourself. So, you place the bet.

Guillaume Durocher on where globalism is thriving: Global Cities.

Malcolm on the Principle of Relativity, where he reviews a recent NYT article on how the Republicans are swinging ever Right…by standing still. Also, it’s clear the winner of the Democratic debates was…Donald Trump! Followed by a retraction of sorts.

Shawnpaulmelville on the Twitter muzzling of an article on Canada’s Mughal conversion, featured here last week.

An article from Commentary about the real Sweden. It’s a bit neoliberal cringey, but is a good starting point for understanding the reality of modern Sweden.

Z Man starts the week with ideas on effective Right Wing Activism. Our Interregnum, on how multiculturalism and a mechanistic view of our nations is failing:

It turns out that human society is nothing like a watch and the people in it are not simply automata that can be tinkered with as necessary. Human society is the expression of the shared reality of the people. That shared reality is the result of actions, experiences and mating decisions made by their ancestors. Who they are is what they are. The Frenchman is French, because his ancestors were French, not because the map maker said he was born in France. The nation is the manifestation of this reality.

Z Man also has a post on the Left’s control over moral discourse and the Right’s failure to adapt: The Incoherent Right. On the High Cost of Low Trust, or what happens when your political system encourages sociopaths. The Democratic Party debates have begun, and so The Gaslights Are Lit. His weekly Z Blog Power Hour podcast: Letter to Z Man.

VDH on the inevitable collisions in intersectionality.

The Myth of the 20th Century crew talks to Piero San Giorgio about the Myth of Perpetual Economic Growth. It, as always, is very good. Do LTTWT.

GA Blog on liberal institutions and the ways they reduce reactionary efforts.

PA Blog on what to do when things go wrong with your daughter. This one hurts.

Cambria Will Not Yield looks at the purging of the word of God from Europe: The Great Liberal Tribunal.

Dr. Spencer on how the Great Lakes have gone from record low levels to record high levels, and the inevitable claims that the Climate EmergencyTM caused both. Ramzpaul on the depths the Climate EmergencyTM cult now plumbs to proselytize.

The Orthosphere on the origin of spoilage by education. An excellent piece of work on getting oriented and finding your way in the modern morass: The Age of Disorientation. On the reasons why adults should not play pretend about serious things. (Mr. Prime Minister, are you learning this yet?) Also, Social Constructs are a social construct.

Al fin discusses the latest easy-peasy plan to wean the world from fossil fuels: 1. Reduce hydrocarbon consumption. 2. Keep dissing reality until it conforms to your ideas. 3. Bask in a CO2 free paradise! (Once the bodies are cleaned up.)

American Sun with an article on modern conformity: the Non-revolt. A piece on historical justification of monarchy. The Alternate Identity Crisis, being a crisis brought about by the social construct theory of… everything. It speaks for itself: When the Faustian man within you speaks, answer the call, just don’t buy something to pacify it. To end the week: Five Friday Links.

The Scholar’s Stage, with Passages I Highlighted in My Copy of “Only Yesterday: An Informal History of the 1920s”. This is an RTWT. The society he describes went through similar upheavals to our own.

James True on fashion as mind control, and modern slavery. Plus, a link to the Clinton fatality list. I’m not sure what to think of this, except to say you REALLY do not want to be around the Clintons.

My first redpills came from MGTOW, and sometimes I go back to old sources to see what’s up. The Thinking Ape, Stardusk, did an interview with a Reactionary Expat which was my first introduction to the Reactosphere. I did not look back. Stardusk has an eye-opening video on what happens after Trump finishes his SECOND term.

Evolutionist X on the differing abilities between men and women and how that can play out in prosperous times. They’re taking a vacation, also. Speaking of, on who is sucking the fun out of holidays (with Pride).

Jim on the coming holy war: The Faith. Alf calls it Jimism.

Zero Anthropology on the power and the glory of the Google Book project.

Steve Sailer on the latest justification for ‘Diversity is Our Strength’: it’s our punishment. Also, classical music must die! Which is, in progressivespeak, to say that it must be killed, as the inherent whiteness of classical music is (insert sound of sucking wind through teeth here) problematic. Well, we can’t help it that we see glory and greatness in our existence and think it is worth preserving.

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 06/23/19

Tomorrow Belongs to MeSome housekeeping: I’m on the road again next week, so next week’s Cantandum will be short, with no Cantandum the following week. This week’s picture theme is the places that Globohomo cannot reach and I’ll be taking a break in one of them.

The Problem:

Liberalism’s real political problem is that a liberal practice is only possible as long as certain traditional stocks of habits and deeply ingrained morals still exist to help society overcome its difficulties. In a nutshell: six conservative centuries enable two generations to be liberal without causing mischief. But once those stocks are consumed in permissive society, the best-intentioned liberal slogans become lit fuses.

Armin Mohler, Gegen die Liberalen

I sense we’re starting to hit the end of our conservative stores. This, courtesy of Spandrell (How Far Is Far Enough), from an excellent anonymous essay translated from German over at Kynosarges blog: Full Speed Into the Void. Another taste:

Concerning awareness of the situation, as initially discussed right-wing populists view immigration and issues with foreign residents as practical problems to be dealt with by practical solutions (executive, legislative). They do not, or not sufficiently, appreciate that the chain of problems starting with criminal foreigners and Islamic dominance behavior goes much deeper. Awareness begins perhaps with migrant crime, Islamic occupation of public spaces, and inadequate border protection, extending in the best case to addressing the Great Replacement (under various terms). The more gifted among them remember that the political left and the 1968 movement have played a central role, which often contributes to narrowing their analysis. Unaddressed remain for example the (liberalist) industry, always craving undiminished immigration which it relies on under liberal premises, or the pervasive lack of strong gender identities as a consequence (and not as a facet of Sunday speeches). Almost nobody in these circles goes as far as to conceive of liberalism itself as a political problem because individualism, egalitarianism, and universalism dissolve our identities.

Z Man has a response to this, highlighting the different circumstances and problems the dissident right faces.

Soph has a new video on Greta Thunberg, Climate ChangeTM warrior. It gets taken down in short order by YouTube. A mirror is here. Another mirror is also here.

Steve Sailer with what, for a Canadian, is the strangest French versus English problem we’ve seen. He notes some comments on girl troubles. Kamila Harris’ provides an example of zero self awareness, or letting the cat out of the bag. Steve has an article on Immigration As Vengeance. In Toronto, the wokest city discovers the strength of diversity after the Raptors’ NBA Championship Win. Faith Goldy notes Toronto’s increasing strength as well.

Speaking of Diversity’s strength, Québec becomes the basest province in Canada. To me, Canada only functions as a Confederation when the provinces remember they were originally a group of colonies that came together in common cause, and whose duty is in part to protect the interests of their citizens from overreaching federal power. When Canada was first formed, it was intended that Ottawa would handle the trans-provincial and international stuff, and everything that impacted most people’s daily lives would be handled by the provinces. Now, the federal government is enmeshed in the average Canadian’s daily life to an extent never contemplated by our founders. Québec is the only province that seems to remember what its relationship to Ottawa was actually supposed to be. The other provinces should follow suit. In case you are repelled by this idea due to a distaste for Québec separatism, you do not get what you do not ask for, and Québec has no problem asking, in necessary terms. There is no fault in requiring Ottawa to adhere to the Constitution and making it clear Confederation is in peril when Ottawa chooses not to. You’ll be seeing more of this from out west soon, because Ottawa currently thinks it gets to treat provinces like colonies. Ottawa needs a swift and severe correction to its attitude.

Policing content on the internet is in our future: Algorithmic Optimization Has Begun.

Cambria Will Not Yield on how Satan came to the west, and what must be done to remove him: No More Night. Also, a brilliant piece, The Bowstrings of the Spirit:

The reason why the conservatives work within the perimeters of liberalism in order to effect change rather than attack liberalism itself is because the modern conservatives are not Burkean conservatives. It was Burke’s contention that prior to the French Revolution, “The nations of Europe have had the very same Christian religion, agreeing in the fundamental parts, varying a little in the ceremonies and in the subordinate doctrines.” Because the nations of Europe were Christian and the Jacobins were opposed to Christianity, Burke maintained that Christian Britain and the rest of the European nations could not, without betraying the moral essence of their nations, make peace with the Jacobin government whether Robespierre or the Directory was in charge of it. But the nations of Europe did make peace with the Jacobins, and we, the European people, have been paying the consequences of that ‘peace’ for centuries, in small dribs and drabs at first, but now, in the 21st century, we are paying the price with our blood.

Anatoly Karlin on the “Colour Revolution” in Georgia.

The Orthosphere on the era we live in: the Golden Age of Scribbling. A well done piece on Illuminative Materialism. An interesting account of the origins of ‘Clique’ and ‘Claque’. Mr. Burtonneau gets his satire on. It’s clever and funny, and for a moment, you wonder if it is real. A philosophical skeleton key: Facts Are Fossils of Acts. On what it is like to be a Secondary Cause. It’s very nice, once you get over yourself. Also, some thoughts on what stops the mind from wandering. A discussion of the three types of power, applied to the US.

He discusses the regulation of old and new public spaces, and Trump’s Immigration Agitation. This week’s Z Blog Power Hour, the grab bag for June. On Politics and Aesthetics:

If there is to be a coherent political and social movement rise out of the dissident right, it will have to be more than narrow political arguments and meta-political commentary on social media. It will need a look that signals to the curious that it is a movement with a future for itself and its adherents. Just as men in traditional suits signaled a break from the 1970’s and the radical chic of the New Left, the new aesthetic will have to signal a break from the old political paradigm and the old Progressive morality.

A demonstration of how things can go wrong in science. Listen to the Pope, repent your consumption sins, and join the one-world government. (You’ll never hear that Police song in the same way again.

Is the love of money the root of all evil? Yes, according to Mr. Briggs. I agree somewhat. Getting someone to agree to something for which, if they had understood the truth and the consequences, they would never agree to, is a big root of all evil. That includes the financial follies and usury that Mr. Briggs discusses. What can be done with the universities? Sir Scruton may have an answer.

Lastly, it’s a clownworld after all, it’s a clownish clownworld. Seriously, is anything real being communicated in that morass?

Reading

I think I’m very quickly going to stop reading most modern books. I’ve already stopped reading books by contemporary women. This happened when I read Guns of August and A Distant Mirror, by Barbara Tuchman. People rave about these books, but Tuchman’s tendency to paint men in leadership acting like teenage girls was too grating. It is a sign of the times, however. These days, most women authors I see are putting out soma for the masses, largely auto-ethnographic emotional journeys (which largely aggrandizes what are otherwise mundane experiences). Don’t get me wrong, there have been very strong women authors in the west in the past, and Edith Wharton remains one of my favourites. However, our modern times produce modern books which reward modern follies and most authors these days happily fall into them.

I started listening to the audio version of Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. In an instant I was enthralled. Every word was chosen for conveying clearly Conrad’s unified vision. He had laboured and struggled to create and convey this vision, and nothing in the story is wasted. You can go back a second time and see relations, allusions, meanings that you missed the first time. Most modern writing is a chore to get through, and very rarely even delivers what was promised by its title, much less leaving one feeling challenged or rewarded. It merits no looks, not a second look. It all seems to boil down to “look how smart and woke I be, and you be too!”

This comes on the heels of reading Bronze Age Pervert’s Bronze Age Mindset. He seeks a return to the principles and discipline that produced men at the crescendo of personal development as men. These are not the men of WWII, or the American Revolution, but of Bronze Age Greece. Those men who had little in the way of modern medicine or technology, but nonetheless, by faith in themselves and an acceptance of the inevitability of death, could by their will conquer whatever they put their minds to. They were students of constant striving to achieve the pinnacle of what a human being can accomplish. We have none of these left today in the West. So it goes with our warriors, so it has also gone with our authors.

Look at this diary entry by Bertrand Russell, on meeting Joseph Conrad. This was spontaneous:
It was wonderful—I loved him & I think he liked me. He talked a great deal about his work & life & aims, & about other writers…. Then we went for a little walk, & somehow grew very intimate. I plucked up courage to tell him what I find in his work—the boring down into things to get to the very bottom below the apparent facts. He seemed to feel I had understood him; then I stopped & we just looked into each other’s eyes for some time, & then he said he had grown to wish he could live on the surface and write differently, that he had grown frightened. His eyes at the moment expressed the inward pain & terror that one feels him always fighting…. Then he talked a lot about Poland, & showed me an album of family photographs of the 60’s—spoke about how dream-like all that seems, & how he sometimes feels he ought not to have had any children, because they have no roots or traditions or relations.
Who writes like this anymore? Who talks to others like this anymore? Who is this observant of other people anymore? We simply do not see it, and most certainly not in our written forms. Perhaps we have become too dependent on technology (TV, then the Internet and smartphones) for our interactions and not enough on our actual real perceptions and intuitions. Whatever it is, we in the west have fallen far.

In Unqualified Reservations, Mencius Moldbug once said that you should always read from primary sources, meaning, from authors writing about things that happened in their lifetimes, for which they actually witnessed. Going back to primary sources is a joy because authors from hundreds of years ago seemed to hold writing to much higher standards. (And, with no copyright, many are cheap if not free.) Perhaps it was because books were not cheap, and there was no plethora of writing available for free via the internet. You had to have higher standards, or you simply never got published. I enjoy old books from old eras for this reason. I’m not really learning anything valuable from modern books, there is nothing for those who strive to be something more than what they already are. The writing does not make demands of you to learn more, get smarter, or up your standards. There is no reward for delving deeper. Such is the times.

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 06/16/19

This week will be a shorter Cantandum, as I’m going out of contact for the weekend. I’ll make sure next week’s post catches everyone up.

“It is high time to be alarmed at the state in which we have been living for some years past. Think of the generation now springing up in our towns and provinces; of all those children who, born during the revolution, have never heard anything of God, nor of the immortality of their souls, nor of the punishments and rewards that await them in a future life: think what may one day become of such a generation if a remedy be not speedily applied to the evil.”

You might think it’s about our times, but it is Chateaubriand writing about the French Revolution in the 1790s (published in 1802). Plus ça change plus c’est la même chose. Courtesy of Mr. Burtonneau’s look at Chateaubriand’s writings on the troubles in France, over at the Orthosphere.

Throne, Altar, Liberty on how Justin Trudeau is helping the Conservative Party of Canada, but they seem to ha e no idea what to do with it:

Evelyn Waugh once said that the problem with the Conservative Party was that it “has not turned the clock back a single second” and the Canadian incarnation of the party has given no indication that it plans to do so any time in the near future. Yet Justin Trudeau would have us believe that the Conservatives, if elected, would set the clock back by about a hundred years. My response to which is to say that if this happens, it would be a good start, but we need to go much further than that.

Z Man starts the week with a comparison of the EU and the Athenian led Delian League. Followed by a look at the widening gap between the Left and the Right in the US. On the ‘I’ Question or IQ. A very good essay on what comes after neoliberal progressivism and why working within that system is pointless:

That’s probably the hardest thing for newly minted rebels to accept about right-wing identity politics. They have been conditioned to believe they must act on their beliefs in order to get others to do the same. In reality, there is no way forward within liberal democracy to attain the goals of national populists or identitarians. The reason is the system is fully evolved to perpetuate itself. Any effort by outside elements to engage the system result in the outside influences being fully incorporated into the system.

I guess the next time I default your parking ticket at a $75,000 fine because you forgot to show up for court, just remember that the due process that allows you to appeal was inspired in part by the brutal slaughter of tens of millions forgotten Europeans, most of whom were peasants or serfs, at the hands of Machiavellian princes and cruel theologians. Remember further that these institutions, these neutral spaces, have histories, and that you need to look closely at calls to overturn them, to see if the people doing so really understand what’s at stake and to see if they even understand how they operate in concrete reality. Look closely and try to determine whether they seem serious. I have to do this every day with the “organizers” who come in, heads filled with the latest intelligence- and corporate-approved social psychology nonsense, calling for social revolution.

Evolutionist X on why small dogs have psychological problems. On the relationship between colonialism and wealth.

Anatoly Karlin on the reactionary migration from blog to vlog.

From the Council of European Canadians, on Ottawa’s latest plan to protect Canadians from “online bullying” (and other icky stuff). I have to say that small fines for ‘offensive’ content would be a great way to generate revenue.

Malcolm discusses the new book by Angela Saini on race as a social construct. Following up, he discusses why suppressing discussion of HBD is harmful.

“This is just the beginning—of the climate crisis, and the political unravelings that will continue to accompany it. And so, it is time to shout, and loudly, that the freedom of all the earth’s people to move across borders must be at the center of any response to the climate crisis. Unless we do, racism and fear—hidden as always in the guise of “security”—will give way to fascism and war before the tides get a chance to drown us.”

Ben Erenreich, here.

I think it’s safe to say that Climate ChangeTM is now dogma used for political control. The only thing that has changed is the temerity of those preaching it.

Some updates: Alf’s Garden of the Internet is back up. Heartiste is active over at Gab. Cambria Will Not Yield moved here, back in April.

Audacious Epigone shows family men are happier than single men. Who would have thought?

Steve Sailer on what D-Day may soon come to mean.

Spandrell on the Tienanmen Square massacre.

Tablet on the spooks who now work for the MSM. Why manipulate the media when you can be The Media?

The Orthosphere on why anecdotal evidence is good for you. On where the Progressives will take us: Progress Pilgrims and the Fascist Pit.

A book review and critique of sorts, on the presence of egalitarianism and other facets of Axial Age cultures, and also on who actually made Axial Age progress, from the Council of European Canadians.

Cambria Will Not Yield with a tonic against Liberalism: Breaking Satan’s Rules. Also, a long one but worth it: Keep Thy Heart.

PA Blog with a quick note on Social Credit and how it might just work out. Also, a discussion of Charlottesville and the consequences, from Gab. Plus, a friendly reminder for Boomers and Millennials.

A bit late, but here is an article on Victor Orban and his handling of Hungary and the refugee crisis in Europe: Hungary and the Future of Europe. A taste:

“Hungary must protect its ethnic and cultural composition,” he said at Kötcse (which more or less rhymes with butcher). “I am convinced that Hungary has the right—and every nation has the right—to say that it does not want its country to change.” France and Britain had been perfectly within their prerogatives to admit millions of immigrants from the former Third World. Germany was entitled to welcome as many Turks as it liked. “I think they had a right to make this decision,” Orbán said. “We have a duty to look at where this has taken them.” He did not care to repeat the experiment.

Scholar’s Stage discusses a speech given by Xi Jinping, explaining his political philosophy. They follow that up with the purpose for China’s social credit system.

James True discusses the real purpose of ‘equality’.

Anatoly Karlin on YouTube’s purge of the Deplorables.

Mr. Briggs with The Ordering Among Angels, part of his Summary Against Modern Thought series. What Happens if the Doctors Keep Up the Killing? An interesting review of what atheists believe…including higher powers. An excellent argument on the Consent Fallacy. Two people consenting does not make it good or right: just ask Armin Meiwes, or Cindy Gladue. A review of Antichrist by Saint Robert Bellarmine. His weekly ode to our all-out sprint over the cliff: This Week In Doom – Pride In Perversion Edition.

large_pK36ZIJvIjqyyuBPwumUS41MzXrReactionary Thought posts a link to the Italian made 1960s film Africa Addio. It’s a little too surreal…to be ignored. WTWT.

National Post has an article on the ever changing nature of the ‘Climate Change’ scare, now rebranded the ‘Climate EmergencyTM‘. For Canuckistanis, you should be slightly concerned, as renaming something as an emergency could be used later on to exercise some very arbitrary steps by Ottawa under the Emergencies Act. Who’s daddy said “Just watch me!”?

download[Pierre] TrudeauYes, well there are a lot of bleeding hearts around who just don’t like to see people with helmets and guns. All I can say is, go on and bleed, but it is more important to keep law and order in this society than to be worried about weak-kneed people who don’t like the looks of a soldier’s helmet.
RalfeAt any cost? How far would you go with that? How far would you extend that?
TrudeauWell, just watch me.

Pierre’s comments on bleeding hearts remind me of his son.

Smoking Lady Picture – II

Z Man starts the week with The Unraveling Right, a discussion of Conservativism’s lack of relevance. On the right-wing progressive embrace of Black worship: Negrophilia. On Cheap Credit, and why it’s a problem. What happens when we are no longer able to understand our own systems? Z Man proposes an answer. His weekly Z Blog Power Hour Podcast, “celebrating” Pride Month: All About Pride. Do LTTWT.

A good video by a Canadian reactionary, Endeavour, on ideology and its part in the decline of the West. It was not what I expected, and there’s some good problems worth thinking about here: Ideology Isn’t Everything.

American Sun, on Progressives hijacking the Fantasy genre. It explains why they run around yelling “raycis” and “flavourofthemonth-o-phobic” all the time: they think these are magic words for magic spells. A review of Kerry Bolton’s Yockey: A Fascist Odyssey. A reprint of a Thermidor essay on the failing political Right: When Fr. Neuhaus Saw Cthulu.

Evolutionist X with an interesting article on how people argue over each other and the shifting sands of context: Equally True, Equally False. Her startling Short Argument For Vending Machines Full of Experimental Drugs. (I like where she takes this.) On the rise of mental health issues on campus:

In the case of the “mental health breakdown” on the left, it’s a combination of the left lying about its mental health and believing its own lies about things that are bothering it.

The Myth of the 20th Century crew with this week’s podcast: The American Farmer – Tradition in Modernity.

Jim on Trump’s visit to England and making Brexit high status. Of course, a bioleninist parade breaks out in response. Also, Jim on the changing tide of the use of law enforcement for political ends.

American Sun with an analysis of how progressives use disadvantaged groups in contradictory ways to suit their cause: Schrodinger’s Blacks. I’d bet we see a similar trend within twenty years or so with feminism. Feminists (or faux feminist politicians looking for votes) will say that women were oppressed by the Patriarchy when they were forced to stop being mothers and enter the labour force during ‘Women’s Liberation’. By being turned into ‘sex slaves’ for mens desires during the ‘Sexual Revolution’. By being offered better birth control and abortion so men could avoid their responsibilities. And they will argue that we knew better, given the unhappiness reported and drug and anti-depressant usage by women that followed, but kept on doing it anyway, largely driven by corporations and governments run by men. They’ll loudly proclaim that women should be free to be housewives and raise their children, and of course, to have a man support them. It will be the 11th wave of feminism. And they won’t even detect the irony as they go full circle, claiming the past’s hard won ‘victories’ are today’s oppressions.

Móðir og Barn. Alvöru Sigur.

The issue of how men and women interelate in society and share power is at least as old as…men and women. What we have these days is an exacerbated version of that friction. Its practitioners aren’t really interested in resolving conflicts or problems, but more on what angle they can use to maximize votes, clicks, adherents or whatever they’re looking for. The natural tension never goes away, and so it is a boundless well to get men and women agitating against each other.

In the future, no one will have agency, unless you need them hated. Rant over…

Keep on reactin’
