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.
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.

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).

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.
