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.

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.)

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

This week’s Z Blog Power Hour Podcast: Letters to Z Man.

Jim on how to fix marriage.

James True on the second coming.
