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.

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.

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.

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.

An essay on Identity Politics and Transhumanism, and how such politics have transcended into a religion heading towards human sacrifice.

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.

American Sun with Reflections on the Prussian Army, all about the Army’s State within the State, and how an instrument of the monarch overcame regal power. An excerpt from the Myth of the 20th Century crew’s new book Exit StrategyOra et Laborum: Restoring Moral Order to Capitalist Societies. The Best post for lawyers this week: Enough of This Scmhitt. Carl Schmitt was a German legal philosopher, concerned with the potential for illegitimate results that arise from what appears to be legitimate legal interpretation. A sample:

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.

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 06/09/19

“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.

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.

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.

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…

Lest We Forget

stokes_plaque_canada

On June 6th, 1944, my Grandfather on my Father’s side swept mines from the English channel to clear a path for Operation Overlord. They were strafed by what they think was a Luftwaffe fighter, but no damage or casualties resulted. They did lose one sailor, but Grandpa said he did not know for sure why. One moment he was there, and another gone. They suspect he might have gotten caught in rigging that went into the water, or he got knocked into the water by a boom or some other heavy thing. The fellow’s body was never found. My Grandfather’s name was Frederick.

My Grandmother and Grandfather on my Mother’s side were both serving in England at that point. Grandma was a Lieutenant Nurse (pronounced left-tennant), a surgical nurse who helped patch severely wounded soldiers up. Grandpa was a pacifist and a Seventh-Day Adventist, but chose to serve, and did anything he could to support our troops. He simply did not carry a gun. He ran ammo, carried wounded, drove ambulance, worked in a warehouse and ran a printing press for the Canadian Forces newspaper. Both would later serve in Belgium and the Netherlands. Their names were Margaret and William.

I had an uncle-in-law who served in the infantry and fought to liberate Belgium from the Third Reich. At the 50th anniversary of the liberation of a small town, his entire company was invited by the inhabitants to come visit for some small informal celebrations. When he arrived, he was cheered by the entire town. Thousands showed up and acted as if he had just run the Wehrmacht out of town himself. They had constructed a huge memorial to the Canadian soldiers who liberated them. He was asked to lay a wreath for his fallen comrades, but broke down crying when he realized he was the only veteran who made the trip because he was the only one left. Belgium hospitality helped him out though – they fed him beaucoup de Belgian beer in the local inn. He showed me pictures of the event. He tried his best to keep up, but they just keep pouring it in him, using some of the most confounding glassware I have ever laid eyes on. I don’t remember his name.

Last year, I helped out a local WWII veteran where I volunteer. He was with Canadian artillery and landed around Anzio in Italy. When they landed, the Germans shelled the shit out of them. Their commander, a British Colonel, knew they would get chewed up staying where they were, so he did what was least expected: he ordered them forward inland many kilometers under cover of fog. They moved in, hunkered down, and returned the favour, all while the German shells flew high over their heads, hitting where they should have been, not where they were. He said the “clever Colonel” saved their lives that day. Unfortunately, they ate something undercooked and all got liver flukes, their skin turning yellow in the process. They had to convalesce for several weeks before they could return to service. He told me he knew of only one other WWII veteran in my city of over 1 million people. I don’t remember (and could not disclose anyway) his name.

June 6, 1944 was 75 years ago this week. Many are careless with the names of those who served and have since departed. Do not forget the names of those who served. Lest we forget.

Our Statistician to the Stars, Mr. Briggs, begins the week with his Summary Against Modern Thought – the ongoing translation of Thomas Aquinas’ Summa Theologica. This week’s post is There Is a Hierarchy of Intellect. Statistics: On bad trend analysis. On the Fetus/Person divide, now delineated by ‘viability’. A very special Midweek in Doom: All Israel All the Time Edition. On the resurgence of UFOs. A bit startling: on the Post-Approval efficacy of pharmaceuticals.

PA Blog on revisiting old 80s movies. He’s right, they were much better times. And it’s true: Gen X was raised with an impending sense of doom. The Cold War ended and took nuclear fears with it…but it did not take away the sense that we were playing with fundamental forces we did not understand. Those forces turned out to be innate characteristics of humans themselves. After almost 30 years of unrestrained progressive ignorance and manipulation, that fear was correct.

Via Clarissa, MLK gets #metoo’d. Somehow it’s news he was an adulterer and had unsavoury proclivities. The author of the original article (here) had been writing about this since the eighties, if memory serves. It only becomes a hot issue now because it can be used to virtue signal. I remember about ten years ago CBC radio broadcast many MLK speeches praising the man. How times change.

The Orthosphere with the origins of “like it or lump it”, and “hunker down”, and its echoes in Stoicism. On the Music of E.J. Moeran. A great essay on T. Lothrop Stoddard and his works, particularly on the Haitian Revolution and parallels with our current social upheavals. Maybe it’s the Sea Peoples, the Atlanteans, later day Roman’s, or it could be us: Mr. Bertonneau discusses Life Among the Ruins. Richard Cocks with an in-depth look at Social Justice. Well worth an RTWT.

Anatoly Karlin on Bioleninism and its uses in the 21st Century. Spandrell replies: RTWT.

Jim on eating. Lots of good stuff in there. And he’s right, diet soda makes you fat. I don’t know why either, but my anechdata agrees.

Z Man starts the week with a discussion on the fallout from Russiagate. He’s noted an interesting lesson about ruling that the Clintons have taught us. Further, the price of prosperity and confusing it with economic activity. His thoughts on politics repeating the past, for the following reasons:

That’s probably the single biggest cultural problem facing America today. The Baby Boom generation is not going to age gracefully. Instead of picking which one of their kids will take their keys away, they will keep a white-knuckled grip on the wheel until the country goes over the cliff. Nancy Pelosi should be in a rest home right now. Instead she wanders around the capital in her bathrobe and slippers, the third most powerful person in the Imperial government, unable to remember her own name.


That’s where we are now. America is a country ruled by cucks who are afraid of the future, so they rummage around in the past. They’re like children putting on shows for their parents, wearing their clothes and singing their songs. It’s all echoes of the past and cucking to current fads. It is an entirely useless ruling elite that will have to be wiped away, before we can face the future. Barring an asteroid strike and societal collapse, it means waiting for the great Baby Boomer die off to clear the path forward.

He also discusses the recent EU elections as a demonstration of why winning the Little Fights is how change has to take place. And he mentions doughnuts…mmm doughnuts. A piece on what Whitey wants, and what Whitey is wise to. His weekly Z Blog Power Hour podcast, on the EU elections. His thoughts on where the relationship between Americans and there rulers is headed.

Al fin with a surprising article on home schooled children being overqualified. Something about learning useful stuff, instead of indoctrination.

Malcolm on America…not just a Proposition Nation. Related, Anti-Gnostic on Remembrance Day. Quick thoughts on political happenings in Europe. Malcolm also notes Mueller’s tactics, akin to Scots Law, to smear Trump, and the very differing perspectives on the matter: Rashomon.

An article from City Journal on the decline of Christianity in the West (i.e The Decline of the West). This is something I am seeing more of: the idea that as Christianity has declined, so has the West. Reactionary says: ‘duh’, although it’s showing up in the normie media as well. Maybe Jordan Peterson and others are helping to show the source of the decline after all.

American Sun begins the week reviewing some works of Alexander Dugin and how they might help us find a way to a post-liberal West. On futile pro-life efforts: Pyrrhic Victory in the Land of the Dead. Jake Bower provides a look Jim Thompson, a post-WW2 writer of pulp fiction: The Grifter’s Guide to America.

There is nothing like being out of cell coverage with not a photon of Wifi service about to give one time to clear one’s head. The internet really is information overload. I suspect this current societal upheaval, with its talk of a civil war, is actually a response to what the internet has revealed: modern Progressive liberalism does not work and it never did. It’s a sham whose facade is held up by sacrificing our social capital and our prosperity.

Its Messiah, Barack Obama, came and went, and things only got worse. Ms. Merkel implemented its highest ideals, and a million migrants later, her nation was in chaos with its women being assaulted and raped in the streets. Canada’s own Saviour, Le Dauphin, Justin Le Premier, rode a wave of Progressive promises and became the top politician in Canada. His reign has been less than four years and Canada has never been more fractured nor perceived as more weak and simultaneously corrupt. What is most startling is how very quickly, when actual Progressivism is implemented, things turn to chaos.

The pending civil war we keep hearing about is I suspect two different camps forming in response. One, is doubling down on Progressivism, possibly lamenting that it has never actually been tried, but more often, nubes thinking they discovered a new social justice cause when in reality all those causes are history, most being recycled from the civil rights movements of the middle 20th century, if not much earlier.

The other feels something is wrong. They’re not quite sure what that is, but they feel it. You don’t need to be a goaltender to know, in your gut, when it’s time to replace the goaltender. They sense that our nations are not working properly and the system is not producing what it’s supposed to. In the reactosphere and the dissident right, we see the system producing exactly what it is designed to, which is a way to power.

It never worked as a way to uplift the masses, because Progressivism has always been an exercise in ignoring reality in the hopes of realizing an ideal, by denying facts about race, genetics, language, abilities, and the sexes. It has been tried with ever increasing fervour for over 200 years and it’s only getting worse. I’m in this camp and as you are reading this, I suspect you might be similarly inclined.

Closing the week, This Week in Doom – You Will Love Butt Brother Edition.

Clarissa’s answer to the question: Who Gains from illegal immigration?

The Ensign Hour’s latest, a grab bag on the state of things in Canada:

A interesting article on modern literature and how in attempts to flatter the reader, it makes them impoverished thinkers.

Myth of the 20th Century with their weekly podcast, on torture and the Abu Ghraib Scandal during Iraq War II.

PA Blog with the best (shortest) immigration debate ever. On Military Leadership and Diversity. A Prediction for England. He translates Elegy of Fortinbras, the words one reasonably assumes the Norwegian king had for Hamlet upon finding Denmark destroyed from within.

Z Man with his Z Blog Power Hour Podcasts: a particularly good The Roots of Our Madness. The first part hit hard for me. Do LTTWT. Z Man attends American Rennaisance, Part I and Part II. On Ethno-Fanaticism, or ways forward from the current attempts at globalization:

The old national identity used to function as the strong force that subordinated the local and tribal, in favor of the national. While France could have plenty of local flavor, so to speak, the strong force of French nationalism bound all those local tribes together like horses pulling a wagon. As that strong force is deliberately weakened, nothing has come to replace it, so the weak force is taking over. The response by elites is to attack group identity by writing the people out of their own history.

Also, on Privacy on the Technology State. His weekly podcast from last week: the May Grab Bag. On conspiracy theories and what they tell us. Z Man also gets the inaugural Double-Quote of the Week award with Citationism, an explanation of the footnote laden mess passing for academic writing these days:

When people stop looking for gaps in their own knowledge or in the prevailing orthodoxy, they no longer have much to say. The lack of curiosity used to be the end of an academic career. It was when the old guy was put out to pasture, gaining the “emeritus” label. Today, a promiscuous lack of curiosity is a requirement for anyone entering the media, the academy or the official public space. As a result, we have a class of academics and public intellectuals, who are a circus of banality.

Evolutionist X with some bad logic from the Left: The Idiocy of Categorical Purity. She also has a grab bag with Some Interesting Things.

On a lesson from the history of medicine: Be Careful What You Rationalize.

Filed under ‘so many red pills’, via Apocalyptic Revolutionary, an article on the US government backed non-violent resistance intellectual Gene Sharp. It’s long, but it help connect the dots on all those Colour Revolutions over the last half century.

The Orthosphere on how to be a college administrator Witch Doctor. On expressions of identity through music, Slavik style. A not-so-subtle sample:

Followed up with Alfvéns Midsommarvaka, a sample of Swedish classical music. Also, no description needed: Belief in “Evolution” is not Necessary for the Dissident Right. Some thoughts on self flattery. Also, on folks who write, but probably should not: Playing My Part In the Great Work of Social Destruction.

I’m likely incommunicado for the long weekend, so this week’s post will be shorter. I’ll catch up next week. Let me know in the comments if links are broken.

Anti Gnostic summarizes my mood lately in The Very Slowly Falling Building:

One day, Orthodox ecclesiology will reflect the facts on the ground. One day, the United States’ socio-political contradictions will be resolved. In the meantime, we wait for things to work themselves out in our very slowly falling building.

Spandrell moved his blog to his own platform. This is fall out from Heartiste’s take down by WordPress last week. I’ll plug Spandrell’s work on Biological Leninism here. You should check it out. Also, check out his Reactionary Tax Code. I spent a few years as a tax lawyer and I agree, although I don’t agree tax lawyers should all lose their jobs and live on UBI. If you want to automate the tax system…force them to learn to code.

Wrath of Gnon with Kunstler’s thoughts on Chronological Connectivity.

PA Blog also provides an interesting comment on the Heartiste situation.

VDH shows us there really is nothing new under the sun, drawing parallels between Rome and the American Empire: Our Modern Satyricon. He also takes media reporting down a peg…or eight:

They espouse opinions on nearly everything while knowing almost nothing. They believe Washington and New York are the centers of the universe, while the universe is making both more irrelevant. As their ethics dissipated, their vocabularies shrank. Their poor communication skills grew ever poorer, and they displayed little knowledge of the history and culture of the people they reported on. Most could give an in-depth lecture on Botox, but are ignorant about the U.S. Constitution or basic facts of American history.

The people finally are tiring of their bias, their incompetence and their arrogance—and are finally beginning to ignore most of what they say and write.

Amen. Z Man opines on a similar issue: our expectations are too high, and if we knew more history, we’d know they’ve always been this way…they just have way more access to the audience.

Evolutionist X on with a follow-up on the…Pygmy-pocalypse?

Scholar’s Stage with some interesting critiques of sexual (mate) selection.

The Myth of the 20th Century interviews Tom Sunic. They discuss identity, US/USSR parallels and the forces turning the world into a giant Wal-Mart.

Malcolm for Mother’s Day. Do click through. Also, he asks ‘Why Evil?’: The Suffering of the Innocent. Racist Thing #108: of course it’s the Unbearable Whiteness of Farming. What great restraint the South Africans are showing restraining their murderous urges! (Maybe. “For now.”) Also, what makes old folks see doom. On how entropy relates to inequality: The Conservation of Entropy.

Dr. Spencer on what’s causing the warming in Global WarmingTM.

Z Man starts the week on what the latest round of Progressive fury is telling us. The Left has nothing new, and the Right, even less: Modern Political Escapism. Also, his thoughts on southern identity.

Steve Sailer gets an interesting comment on ‘Equality’ dominating politics.

On the Orthosphere, Bores, Babblers and Buffoons. It’s quite clever, but perhaps I think so because I’m boorish. On why college admissions should be sold for cash.

William Briggs continues his Summary Against Modern Thought: How God Uses Secondary Causes. How Nature published a paper endorsing indoctrinating children to “educate” their parents on Climate ChangeTM. I think they should call it the Pavlik Program. On a moral fallacy plaguing our times: The Consent Fallacy. Ianto Watt continues his guest post with On Islam – Part II.

Via Anatoly Karlin, Guillame Durocher’s Weeping for Notre Dame:

Flèche_en_feu_-_Spire_on_Fire.jpeg

I must then admit that I was not particularly moved by Notre-Dame burning. I’ve already made my peace with impermanence. I already know that the rot that is consuming France will in all likelihood kill this fair nation within my lifetime. My heart has already been broken. I have already wept for this. Who can claim, in all sincerity, that in a mere hundred years a nation will still exist on this soil – let alone a nation worthy of the name “France”?

Al fin on how the latest bout of space enthusiasm might just produce a change for humanity.

For Canuckistanis, Faith Goldy has an interesting look into tactics used to dox donors to her campaign for Mayor of Toronto last year. Canada, these are the people running your country. This is one problem with our nation: with only the individual left (after the gutting of family, church and common-interest social groups) the state ends up run by an oligarchy with no accountability. No matter what they do, you’ll be told it’s what you agreed to.

American Sun with Messrs. Landry and Pratt discussing serial killer Ted Bundy and his way with women. The Editors with some spooky stuff about Jeff Bezos. Part Four in a series of excerpts from the Myth of the 20th Century crew’s book Exit Strategy: Tactical Solutions.

From our Statistician to the Stars: this week’s Summary Against Modern Thought. Filed under “Fuckthewhat”: Celebrating High School Whoredom. A long but well worth it essay on the limitations and usefulness of IQ. P-Values in statistics take another beating, this time on “trends”. Christianity is All But Kaput in the West. Guest Ianto Watt’s excellent explanation of the West’s embrace of Islam. A taste:

At bottom, the only thing that worldly post-western people fear is Christianity. Real and awakened Christianity. First, because it calls them to acknowledge their sins. Their personal sins. Not ‘group sins’ like the carbon footprint and white privilege. They’re happy to claim those social sins, as long as it is ascribed to a group, and not to them personally. After all, even Nancy has a wall around her house. Hers is for aesthetics, of course. Not racism. Or xenophobia.

From Anatoly Karlin, something I did not see coming, The Sixth Proof of God. I like where he goes with it:

Nonetheless, I do believe that the evidence here is sufficiently strong for it to be worthwhile – effectively altruistic – to criminalize atheism, and liberalism as the gateway drug to Communism. It is better that a few heretics vanish than that an entire planet falls to Chaos.

From a recent find, the Apocalyptic Revolutionary, with Lessons of the Old Left ¦ Gottfried:

This may answer a question that some members of the Alt-right have put to me: Why do white men submit to a political culture that demeans them? A partial answer is that they have undergone two forms of control. Their minds have been crammed full of egalitarian slogans and the politics of guilt in school, through the media, and even in churches. In recent years we have seen increasing discrimination against whites, and white men in particular—the controversy concerning Covington Catholic High School is but one of many examples. Still, many white men have not had to face the implications of their being unofficial scapegoats, for they are economically shielded and teeming with creature comforts—although, make no mistake, such conditions are not guaranteed to last.
