Cantandum in Ezkhaton 03/17/19

I keep trying to write a quick one or two paragraphs on a weekly event to start off these posts. They’ve all been blossoming into their own posts. I think that is a good sign. I’ll be on the road for most of next week. I’m going to try and post using only my smartphone. We’ll see how it works out. (This might cause me to buy a tablet to make posting easier. Thoughts on which to buy? I’ve recently switched to Samsung Galaxy and thinking about a Samsung tablet.)

When did “asylum seeker” appear in US culture? Audacious Epigone has your answer. In Canada, it was [the Current Year], when Justin Le Premier let all those Syrian refugees in. My son and I discussed this a while ago, and he said that this might have been something Le Dauphin has done that actually helps those vulnerable groups he’s always catechizing about. How are they doing these days? Not so well, it seems.

Victor Davis Hanson on the War Against the Dead, largely fought by destroying reminders of the past.

Orthosphere has a really good essay on the Anthropology of Martian Romance: Part I and Part II. Also, on the usefulness of ‘talkers’, and a follow-up comment on not useful talkers. A great commentary on the problems with inclusivity statements and policies. On the various iterations of the right, including the CTRL-ALT-DEL Right.

Horrorterror!!! Malcom on Climate ChangeTM getting very scary. Further, on the man who has not grovelled. Why you should support Tucker Carlson. Filed under “Weren’t they supposed to learn to code already?”, Air be raycis! But don’t worry, Michigan is cracking down on wrongthink hate crimes, with help from the SPLC! Also, his take on the Christchurch massacre.

Audacious Epigone on marriage as bliss. Also, a quick lesson by example on what Blue Checkmarks and Frontlashing mean, in the Christchurch massacre context.

Alf on Anger.

American Sun with an introduction to Andrew Yang, candidate for President. A very interesting Five Friday Reads. Henry Delacroix on what it’s like at the Arnold Classic lifting festival. A thoughtful essay and review of Guillaume Faye’s Archeofuturism: European Visions of the Post-catastrophic Age. A taste:

The system is not broken, or the result of an evil cabal of elites – it is robust, and working precisely as it is meant to run. It is driven by the worst intents of all humanity, which is, at its beating heart, made up of people who imagine themselves to be individuals, and therefore given to doing harm to one another and multiplying evil for themselves. Modernity enables this tendency rather than controlling and suppressing it, as all traditional societies have done throughout the ages. Western Civilization has surrendered itself, it has not been conquered, and it is therefore the struggle against the weakness of the West which is the paramount struggle of the contemporary Dissident – a lesson Western Dissidents seem resolutely opposed to learning.

This is a trap of the modern Faye seems unable to escape: that the superior can cease to be superior if they are deprived of their responsibility to the inferior; to breed men like cattle may produce the best genetic specimens, but without a spiritual goal, a higher purpose, provided by the care of the noblesse oblige of the aristocrat, one is left with a race of Eloi, a sham aristocracy, afflicted with its own sort of debilitating equality. Especially lacking the wisdom of a morality, one will find the result of the best eugenic project to be something slightly less than human.

From our Statistician to the Stars: this week’s installment of the continuing Summary Against Modern Thought. Mr. Briggs on upcoming changes in use of statistical significance. Ianto Watt’s Orthodoxy’s War: Part III. USA as a declared Catholic Nation State. A funny bit on men LARPing. Also, Mr. Brigg’s reads my mind! Finally, This Week In Doom.

Evolutionist X on Why People Believe in Conspiracy Theories, and why some are more equal than others. Also, how people are using ‘Social Construct’ incorrectly. What ‘Heritable’ actually means (well worth your time).

Courtesy of Clarissa, Budweiser gets woke. No wonder it is often cited as the most popular beer up here.
