“Der Frühling blutet in Paris.”
Notre Dame de paris brûle! C’est tres tragique! Je crains que ce soit un mauvais augure. PA blog commente ici. Clarissa, avec pourquoi elle ne peut past être remplacée. Z Man: qu’est-ce qui vient ensuite. Malcolm, avec sa perspective. L’argument de l’inimitié de nos ennemis, par l’Orthosphère. Resentement.
Z Man on the coming US Civil War II. His quick review of Duton and Woodley’s At Our Wits End, on declining intelligence in the west. On the Lie Machine and its motives. He wonders if a lack of imagination is a sign of the times. Also, his weekly podcast, on Letters to Z Man.
The Orthosphere begins the week with an overview of the works of Joseph de Maistre: Enlightenment and Sacrifice. Also, Immigrants Are Assimilating. Berdyaev continued: Maximal Freedom Means Maximal Responsibility. A Westerner reads the Koran (Second Surah). All are great. RTWTs.
Such immigrant assimilation is something I have noticed up here in Albertastan. A small number of immigrants are showing up in court challenging all kinds of laws and demanding privileges, and when their demands are not met, it be raycis! They accuse the judge, the clerks, the bailiffs, the lawyers, and everyone else in the room of being racist. If there is a law that stops them from doing what they want, the law is racist. They gladly trot out the local Human Rights Code and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and claim a breach. And when that does not work, they say those rules are racist also. It’s racist turtles all the way down.
It’s laughable, as they seem to almost believe the word “racist” is magic that trumps all other laws and precedents. I wonder where they got that from? Mr. Watson gets it right: they watch the dominant progressive culture in the media, and they assume the words are magic, because otherwise, how else could such a word have any power?
For a particularly egregious abuser, see this decision on Mr. Abe Olumide, who filed suit in every single province, a mari usque ad mare, to have election laws struck down as racist to try and force a political party to let him run as their candidate. I note that Justice Thomas was rumoured to be undergoing chemotherapy at the time he wrote this, so perhaps that explains his disposition. Nonetheless, it’s nice to see someone say, indirectly, “I’m sick and tired of your bullshit.”

Faith Goldy with reasons why we need a black Pope.
PA Blog on the song Libertà.
Mr. Briggs begins the week with the ongoing Summary Against Modern Thought. On statistics and the non-merits of randomization. What is white supremacy? Also, a great post against Scientism. To be inclusive in the workplace, exclude Christians. His fine work of fiction:Realistic Female Hero Novel.
He also mentions the annual Bulwer Lytton Fiction Contest. Do it for the lulz!
VDH asks a question: What are the limits of illegal immigration? It’s a bit troubling, given it appears the US does not know how many it already has.
