If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road. …I think if you look at the present state of the world, it is pretty plain that humanity has been making some big mistakes. We are on the wrong road. And if that is so, we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on.

American Sun starts us off with an essay on Trump’s attempts to route around the Deep State, how they are similar to Nixon’s efforts to do the same, and how this has resulted in the same countermeasure: impeachment. The best defense is a good offense: Self Defense Against Clown World Part II. Bad Billy Pratt guests, on the new Disney Star Wars streaming series The Mandalorian. Where he went with this was unexpected: Somebody Elses Yoda. The Antigroyper guests with a short history of the Groyper meme. Earl Shetland continues the series Serial Experiments Cybernetics Layer 07: Bogdanoff. Mr. Landry describes his experiences in helping opiod addicts in his community, a must read, and gives 10 articles in a special Ten Friday Reads (no Five Friday Reads next week.)

Bronze Age Pervert’s weekly podcast is on how you are being poisoned. LTWT. Bodhi Bronson of American Sun posts a review of BAP’s 11th podcast episode here.

A short history of Xi Jinping and why he attacks China’s ‘historical nihilists’, at Scholar’s Stage.

RottenChestnuts makes a troubling and apt comparison of the current political showdown in the USA to this scene from Apocalypse Now:

The scene could very well take place on either the Democrat or Republican side.

By way of Isegoria, violent behaviour is actually rare, and usually shows up when people are confused and/or helpless. A radical proposal to bring back child labour, which is an excellent way to protect them from an “education”.

Murdoch Murdoch announces Ask Me Anything 3 and is taking questions on YouTube:

The Orthosphere compares Jose Ortega y Gasset and Gabriel Marcel on the concept of the Mass Man.

PA Blog looks at an Andrew Anglin article on the seven options in the neoliberal sexual marketplace for young men. The root article, We Are All Incels Now, with general advice for young men is also worth an RTWT, here at Daily Stormer. Also, on the magical age of 27, and the strange sacrifices the music industry makes of its stars.

Throne, Altar, Liberty says “thanks, no thanks” to actor Michael Moriarty’s reasonable response to Don Cherry’s firing: Canada must join the United States of America. Besides the ftw factor, Gerry accurately surmises that the more we become the US the more leftward we drift. Besides, we’re already a vassal state, and that’s more than enough. He also discusses Chick-fil-a, woke capitalism, and how business is not (and was not really ever) a friend of the Right.

Malcolm with poetry on inductive reasoning, and political correctness as an attempt to kill it (selectively). Bowie asked if there was life on Mars, and an article on claims there was and is.

Morgoth’s Review hate reads the Guardian, who is in love with IKEA’s new advert shaming people into buying things they don’t need spreading Christmas joy.

I note in the original ad that the characters don’t actually fix what is wrong in their house or their lives, but just use stuff they buy at IKEA to cover it up. That’s an excellent metaphor for our times. He also continues his series on the archetypes of the Left, this time on the Abomination:

The Myth of the 20th Century crew has a podcast on the highly innovative Bell Labs, where among many things, microwave antenna design testing led to the confirmation of Cosmic Microwave Background radiation.

GA Blog has a great post on Languaging Practices, which put simply is how language use applies to culture.

Z Man discusses possible motivations and goals for the ongoing Ukraine impeachment thing. He looks at the intolerance of progressives as tactics in a War on Reasonableness. The tide is going out on Conservatism, leaving many of its cucks naked on the beach. He has blackpills on healthcare (Feeling like a managerialized meat stick used to milk insurers? Talk to your medical service distribution node today about whether BlackpillsTM are right for you. Side effects may include doxing, cancel culture, and crimethought.) This week’s Z Blog Power Hour podcast is of the highest calibre, on marketism, or the tendency to attribute value to things only in respect of how they increase economic value or activity.

Prime Minister Trudeau announces his new cabinet:

Evolutionist X reviews Why Warriors Lie Down and Die, which describes the impact of the welfare state on the Yolngu people of Australia. Their experience no doubt relates to the general malaise found in the West. This is something I’ve pondered for a while. My fellow Canucks, go look at a local First Nations reserve. It is very close to the experience of the Yolngu. You may avoid it, but your kids are going to be living in the same conditions. The federal government’s disdain, paternalism, neglect, and barely disguised chauvinism against First Nations is now present at all levels of government, and being extended to all people in Canada who are not part of the ruling elite. This will accelerate as Le Dauphin’s reign continues. Ms. X also considers the Urge:

Man in his natural state, upon reaching adulthood, is struck with the urge: the urge to travel, to struggle, to conquer, and ultimately triumph (or die trying).

Migration is a goal of the young.

To be young is to struggle: against nature, against society, against himself, against the elements, against hunger, against failure.

… …

Modern man, in modern cities, is deprived of struggle. The land is already cleared. The houses are already built. The food arrives pre-killed in the grocery store. The map has already been drawn and your GPS tells you where to go.

We have made ourselves a paradise and find it wanting.

An article on how social media is driving divisiveness in our societies, over at the Atlantic.

Throne and Altar on gratitude to “real” Americans, being the descendants of those around the time of the Constitutional Convention: Honor Among Fake Americans. Also, status and democracy as rule by the media: The Trouble With an Aristocracy of Virtue.

Counter Currents has a review of the film The Lighthouse, which appears to have the creep factor in spades. On England’s pagan roots. On conspiracy theories, their safe use, and their use as distraction. A history of the ‘Paid Piper’ of Conservatism Inc., Charlie Kirk. They look at Venice, recently flooded, by seemingly vengeful waters, and by African ‘immigrants’. They ask if the good times has ended, as demographic replacement continues. Why does Detroit decline while Minneapolis thrives? Severinus has your answer here.

Daughter of Albion looks at the what is reducing the birth rate for Europeans, given that over 90% of women in Europe want two or more children:

Anatoly Karlin on what intelligence experts think about various topics, including who is the best source for new on intelligence (Steve Sailer!).

Patriactionary on the latest trend in corporate service shysters – DIE: Diversity, Inclusion, Equity. (Steve Sailer noticed this too. When I read his article, I thought it was parody.) He notes that Chick-fil-a has stopped donating money to organizations criticized by LGBTQ groups. Veterans of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army have formed a new association in Ontario.

Vanishing American II quotes Carlyle on the immutability of the laws of nature. He also posts on the generational rift between the Boomers and…everyone else, and how it is misplaced, divisive, and not based on facts.

The Current Pope creates a new category of Ecocidal Sin. Those who disagree are the embodiment of Satan Hitler on Earth. The must read review of the must read book Bronze Age Mindset. Go RTWT, right now. I’ll wait… He discusses what ‘randomization’ is in experiments, and when it is useful. Ianto Watt guests, and continues his series on Clovis and his Anti-Arian army. It’s on the work of Bartholomew and Francis to reunify the Church, and not for good reasons.

This week’s Radio Derb podcast discusses among many other things, Mrs. Bill de Blasio, wife of NYC’s mayor, and her bang-up job spending a billion dollars on…stuff. A partial transcript is here. It is also available on YouTube:

Steve Sailer on Bloomberg apologizing for reducing murders in NYC. On the madness at the ACLU, or perhaps, the Ministry of Truth. Some historic news on the genetic disease fighting front. His weekly Taki’s Mag column is on the film Ford versus Ferrari. It’s another story about white dudes, so I’m sure it will flop. The NYT has updated the DIE (Diversity, Inclusion, Equity) acronym to the much more appropriate DEI. It’s good to know who the new god is. There was a coup in Bolivia? At least Steve and Tulsi noticed. He also talks about Sacha Baron Cohen’s recent ADL speech on the need fof censorship, and how this is consistent with his other characters. Speaking of famous Kazakhs, how the Cossacks culturally appropriated from the Kazakhs. Iraqi Defence Minister gets busted for welfare fraud in Sweden: diversity is our strength is a long con. He posts on something I’ve been considering for a while: what happens when all those children being ‘transitioned’ now sue their parents, the state, and all those medical professionals whose prescriptions and surgeries ruined and mutilated them. Steve sees this as a golden opportunity. For my part, it looks like an excellent pro bono opportunity, claiming disbursements only. A bit of satire: no biological basis for the family.

Council of European Canadians on Apocalyptic Environmental Fantasies, and their use as justification for progressive policies which are otherwise madness.

Audacious Epigone on the IQ of white folks by state. The leader is the District of Columbia. Who would’ve thought. The comment of the week is on politics, and how there is no political discussion going on anymore.

Titania McGrath reviews the latest Charlie’s Angels reboot:

Al fin on no trust in or for China. He has a look at the costs of Green Energy, and how the more of it in your jurisdiction, the more you pay for electricity. AI in psychiatry is becoming a thing. Blackpills, on demographics, living conditions, plus other miscellany. He notes that Sweden is now cutting back on services and support for seniors. Those must be the gangs Denmark is trying to keep out. Who else would it be?

RottenChestnuts on how the Left ended up loving the ‘spooks’, and why they are stuck there now.

Cambria Will Not Yield calls for Europeans to maintain their faith in the face of their Liberal overlords, and to reject pride in intellect and therefore reject Satan.

James True on how US politics is like professional wrestling.

Occidental Dissent looks at the WokeScience curriculum now being pushed in Washington State:

Capture

Also from Occidental Dissent, a look at accelerationism and mainstream recognition of it in a Vox article. The Whitehouse reverses policy towards the West Bank, in favour of Israel, saying Israeli settlements there are legal after all. An RT article on five reasons why corporate America goes woke. Italians appear to be amenable to some racism. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel gets indicted on corruption charges. He shares a great video on the Great Replacement:

More OD: on the American Greatness Symposium and Conservatism Inc. gets what it deserves. A Southern history lesson on Herrenvolk Democracy, looking back at a different time in US history (pre Civil War), when State sovereignty was high and State citizenship was what mattered.

Remembrance Day was early last week, and I posted separately on it. Occidental Dissent comments on Armistice Day here, asking why the hangover from the World Wars means continuing military entanglements and death. Evolutionist X discusses one potential reason why: people are intelligent but prone to mistakes, and even the dumb ones kill few; systems, on the other hand, when stupid can kill millions. Anatoly Karlin posts a translation of Egor Kholmogorov’s Russia and the Great War: Victory 100 Years Past. It’s an RTWT.

Glenn Ellmers at American Mind reminds us that we’ve been through way worse and risen above it: Stand Up and Fight!

Shylock Holmes is asked, and answers, What Exactly Do You Want? It’s from a political perspective, on what the totality of the Right wants in common, and what might achieve it.

Occidental Dissent on his personal trip through identity politics, conservatism, being a dissident, and his view on all those things coming from a Southern context. Demographics are destiny in Virginia, although its only racist when those to the right of the Overton window say it. Now, the Democrats of Virginia are taking another run at Confederate monuments in the state. He looks at the latest trend in housing, which seems to involve living in a pod so small if it was prison, it would be a sacred human rights violation. He looks at the beautiful, progressive dance between the Center-Left and the Center-Right, and the Atlantic Magazine’s hope that after Trump, everything goes back to normal. Noel Ignatiev, who did not live long enough to see his desired end to whiteness, lives on in Pete Buttigieg. Emmanuel Macron does not like Nationalism, saying it is the equivalent to war. Judging from all those terrorist attacks, and the church burnings, I think Macron has another kind of war he should be worrying about. Need an update on the wokeifying of the UK? The latest is here.

Audacious Epigone on those claiming to have no religion. He posts a map showing the average IQ for each state.

Throne and Altar considers why Pope Francis is allowing idolatry in his church. Also, an examination of the concept of Anonymous Christians, being those who are unconsciously Christian.

Just Thomism on why the human race can be evil at times.

VDH on the coming ‘1984’ election:

Like it or not, 2020 is going to be a plebiscite on an American version of Orwell’s Nineteen-Eighty-Four. One side advocates a complete transformation not just of the American present but of the past as well. The Left is quite eager to change our very vocabulary and monitor our private behavior to ensure we are not just guilty of incorrect behavior but thought as well.

The other side believes America is far better than the alternative, that it never had to be perfect to be good, and that, all and all, its flawed past is a story of a moral nation’s constant struggle for moral improvement.

One side will say, “Just give us more power and we will create heaven on earth.” The other says “Why would anyone wish to take their road to an Orwellian nightmare?” The 2020 election is that simple.

(And as a counterpoint, Z Man replies: The New Order.)

An essay showing Conquest’s Second Law of Politics in action, with Amnesty International as an example. On the difficulties man faces because he is a part of two worlds, the heavenly and the earthly.

Black Pigeon Speaks on political discontent and the real probability of Caesarism in the West:

Steve Sailer: “Do you ever get the impression that as our culture gets More Woke it also gets more in debt? Funny how that seems to work…“. On Einstein’s theory of General Relativity and how it toppled Rationalism. News that the Russian military wants to use genetic testing to determine where a soldier can optimally serve. On what genetics can tell us about cuckoldry over the last 500 years in Europe. Razib Khan notes it is not as high as the word on the street tells us, and is more likely in urban areas.

Vanishing American II in defense of fundamentalists.

Z Man on day two of the Mencken Conference, and why reason and facts are no longer a way for the Right to appeal to its base. He also discusses the Groyper rebellion, and how Conservative Inc.’s inability to even handle its questions is very telling. He discusses materialism, and how history will view the American Empire:

In the long scope of things, the American empire will be seen as an entirely artificial construct, built on the wreckage of Western civilization. The two great industrial wars that opened the 20th century exhausted the people spiritually. This includes the people who claimed to have saved the West. The cultural achievements of the American empire, such as they are, reflect that lack of spirit. The American empire and the culture around it is a lifeless zombie shuffling through time and space.

Speaking of such a history, he looks at theories on why societies collapse, and what they tell us about the US Empire today. This week’s Z Blog Power Hour podcast is Libertarian Bashing.

Council of European Canadians asks if the 21st Century is the worst time for men in our history.

William Briggs gets the week underway with Summary Against Modern Thought: The Works of Psychics & Witches Aren’t Entirely Natural. He gives a roll call and discusses the Midway battle, the new movie version, and the cyptographers involved in the early stages of the Pacific War. Over half of Americans polled don’t like the idea that boys identifying as girls are dominating girls’ sports. You know, the fact that the prior sentence is even coherent shows how messed up the West is. He provides another example of why you should never rely on p-values.

An excellent post by guest Ianto Watt, on what Clovis I, King of the Franks and pain in the ass to the Roman Empire can teach us about the political strife in the USA and across the West:

Malcolm is back. He posts that Denmark is now instituting border checks with Sweden to prevent Swedish gangs from shooting up Copenhagen. Hmm…I wonder which Swedish gangs the Guardian is referring to? The BBC feels no need to discuss such things. He also discusses Pete Buttigieg’s chances versus Trump in 2020. (Buttigieg is now the leading Dem in Iowa caucus polls.) He does a cover version of the David Bowie song Heroes.

Al fin notes the state of the US economy, and how Jamie Dimon, CEO of Chase, thinks it’s as healthy as ever. He finds a trade school where 100% of grads get jobs! On energy news in the US, with a focus on nuclear power. On how very distracted we are these days, and ways to deal with it.

A deeper look at the unrest in Chile and its demographic. The Katie Hill scandal: Is it empowerment? Is it the last gasp of the Patriarchy? Is it #metoo backfiring on its loudest proponents? Robert Hampton considers what’s going on. They review a Matt Tyrnhauer film on Roy Cohn, political manipulator extraordinaire. Counter Currents releases two books by Savitri Devi, a National Socialist in WWII Europe. She documents the post Allied victory de-Nazification in Gold In the Furnace, and her own arrest and prison sentence for pro-National Socialist activities in Germany after the war, in Defiance. They post a review of Alain Benoist’s Against Liberalism, a long but good one, and there is an audio version as well. A look at the persecution prosecution of John Demjanjuk, a Ukrainian and Soviet soldier in WWII, accused of being a Wafen SS member and hounded for his alleged crimes by the US, Israel, and Germany, until he died.

By way of Isegoria, a look at what Liberalism meant to the founder of the Economist magazine. If that was the prevailing attitude, the ongoing trend to reduce everyone to their economic value is explained.

Henry Delacroix looks at next year’s initiative to repeal Proposition 13, which will increase property taxes to businesses in California.

Via Patriactionary, a Quillette article on the Luxury Belief Class, or how progressive values have become status symbols amongst the elites.

RottenChestnuts on the coming US Civil War II: It’s Inevitable? Plus, a look at how things will finally fall apart. Why do young people love socialism? Because it gives them what they are lacking most: meaning. “What rule of law?“, he asks:

The fact is, American “justice” is whatever the Left needs it to be today. Rules are just suggestions — the Constitution is a “living document,” which means it says whatever the Democrats need it to say at the moment. These are people who claim to sincerely believe that women can have penises and men can have periods; you think the phrase “shall not be infringed” means anything to them? At least Stalin and the boys had the good grace not to change the accusations right in the middle of the fucking show trial. Watching the “impeachment,” it’s clear that, like Obamacare, we have to convict Trump in order to find out what he’s guilty of.

Evolutionist X with a parody post on the sciencism behind the historical scientifism of light switches…I think.

Patriactionary discusses what it takes to create a classless society. It was not so long ago we had this. He also notes the opinion of John Zmirak, that the test for allowing new immigrants in should be purely political. His thoughts on Don Cherry speaking out about poppy wearing for Remembrance Day:

Mr. Cherry is a well-known and controversial hockey commentator in Canada. He speaks his mind, and he often strikes a cord with Canadians because he’ll say things people think but cannot speak aloud. Such as…that people should wear poppies to commemorate those who died in service of the Empire, the Monarch, and the nation. The backlash is predictable. The media lines up its commentators and enough POC to spew scripted sound bites about diversity, immigration, tolerance, crimespeak and multiculturalism. They remind me of children in grade school who, while holding their hands as high as possible and squirming in their desks, can’t wait to put their wokeness on display for show and tell. Of course, you don’t stop a holiness spiral after one turn, and so Mr. Cherry was fired on Remembrance Day for his progressive sin (via Occidental Dissent). Seeing adults act this way is repulsive.

Frank Vaughan summarizes our anger:

The fact that, ahem, over the last four-plus years, it has become acceptable in Canada to go after someone’s livelihood because they express an opinion you do not like, (or as so eloquently put by a wannapundit at the CBC, the opinion merely need be unpopular or a financial liability) is actually what is divisive in our society.

But that’s just how Remembrance Day goes down in 2019: remember those who suffered because an 85 year-old man said hurty words, and call for him to be fired, then celebrate his loss.

Cherry becomes my hero when he refuses to back down, (and appears on Tucker Carlson to boot). Throne, Altar, Liberty agrees, noting the more we react to progressives and their persecutions as Mr. Cherry did, the less likely we are to see more of it later. Council of European Canadians links to a Ressurection Europa video on the subject, noting that woke commentators at the CBC saying Cherry’s comments are backlash against the inevitable multiculturalization of Canada. Patriactionary sees Cherry’s firing in terms of shareholder classes, and you’ll never guess who holds Class ‘B’ shares? I believe those shares have a negative dividend which is paid to Class ‘Oppressed’ voting shareholders. The lesson to be learned comes from the Vancouver Sun article at the beginning of this paragraph:

Shakir Mousa, who came to Canada from Iraq roughly 30 years ago, said earlier Monday he was hurt and disgusted by Cherry’s words and worried they could ignite hatred and discrimination.


“I come from a dictatorship country,” the Montreal resident said. “There is a real appreciation for Canada and what Canada represents … I appreciate what democracy is and what liberty is and the freedom that we enjoy.”

He is inadvertently right, the country he is from is a dictatorship…a theocracy under holy progressivism. Z Man explains the phenomenon more generally:

Today, this has moved from simply not buying stuff from a business owned by a bad thinker to committing one’s life to destroying the bad thinker and anyone foolish enough to not share the same hatred. The whole woke movement is a blood lust, an effort to cause real harm to people by denying them the ability to live. Climate activism, as expressed in that essay, is about destruction. Everything the writer sees as keeping him from reaching personal fulfillment must be destroyed.

It is not a politics of self-interest, as the so-called conservative would imagine. The modern leftist is like a bear protecting her cubs. Any perceived threat is met with overwhelming aggression. You see it in the language. They conflate ideas and statements with actions. Holding a contrary opinion makes them feel unsafe, as that opinion is viewed as violence. They need safe spaces, by which they mean the removal of anything and anyone that contradicts their sense of self.

And the end of the day, Cherry could often times come off as a bully. Some folks did not like it. So what? He’s a bully on a T.V. screen, not in your face.  What he has to say would not diminish anyone with strength of character. Which is to say, he’s guaranteed to trigger the poor SJWs. Those who called for his sacking lack a spine, and their inability to deal with a differing opinion shows they are the very weakest of weak.

To close this out, Endeavour has a great video over at Bitchute on what Remembrance Day means to him, and how the controversy around Don Cherry’s firing and the larger demographic trends in Canadian society diminish it.

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

Remembrance Day 2019

Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy son’s sons…

Deuteronomy 4:9

It’s been 101 years since the war ended. Time flies when…

Remembrance Cenotaph, City Hall, Edmonton, Alberta

I’m going to pay special attention to the Great War, World War I, in this post. My prior post on remembrance for the 75th anniversary of D-Day is here. A young acquaintance of mine asked me earlier this year if the Great War was World War II. He did not know there were two World Wars. So, you get the Great War this year.

Most of the readership here is not Canadian, so I’ll go over the ways in which my country respects those who served in war. Remembrance Day is Canada’s national memorial day. It was chosen as it was the day in 1918 when the Great War finally ended. Most British Commonwealth members adopted this day as their Memorial Day. In the United States of America, it is referred to as Veterans Day.

Tradition holds that one or two minutes of silence are observed beginning at 11:00 AM. Most nations hold some kind of memorial ceremony, and in Canada, each of the provinces hold one and the federal government does as well. In Ottawa, the ceremony takes place at the National War Memorial where Elgin Street meets Wellington Street, next to the Rideau Canal, half a block east of Parliament. In what must have been the ultimate foreshadowing, it was dedicated in May of 1939. Canada’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was laid at the same site in 2000.

National War Memorial, Ottawa (Canadian Heritage)

When I attended it several years ago, people flooded the streets to pay respects and traffic in downtown Ottawa came to a halt. Our prime minister always attends, and many dignitaries also make the trip to Ottawa. We even sometimes get one of the Canadian Royal Family (same as of the United Kingdom as far as I can tell). The speeches are made, the Anthem is sung, wreaths are laid, the bells of the Peace Tower ring out, a 21 gun salute is fired, and the Canadian Air Force flies overhead. If you ever get a chance, go see it.

Poppies_by_Benoit_Aubry_of_Ottawa

By Benoit Aubry, Ottawa

 

Remembrance Poppies are a big thing in Canada. These small plastic poppies are pinned to the left side of the coat or jacket, nearer the heart the better. They appear at least a couple of weeks before Remembrance Day. They are to be worn from the last Friday in October to November 11th. Donations are asked in exchange for poppies, and go to the Canadian Legion which uses the money to help Canadian veterans and their families. The Legion has a poppy wearing guide here. Store owners usually place the open cardboard boxes with poppies in them near the till or checkout. It is customary to drop a Toonie (2 Dollar Coin) in exchange for a poppy. Although, some stores have moved them behind the counter as some are raided for the cash when staff are not looking.

The poppy is the memorial symbol because of Anna Guérin. She was a French citizen who gave away paper poppies in exchange for donations to help orphans in war torn France, starting in 1919. Initially, she went to the US to raise funds, but the idea took hold across the world.

Poppies are also prominent in a very famous poem about the Great War: In Flanders Fields. John McCrae, a physician and Second Boer War veteran, joined the Canadian Expeditionary Force as a gunner and medical officer, at 41 years of age. He wrote the poem on May 3, 1915, after attending a friend’s funeral, who had died after a chlorine gas attack by the Germans. In spite of that horror, the Canadians held the line for over two weeks.

(Some Canadiana: Since 1952, the locker room of the Montreal Canadiens has the second and third lines from the third stanza printed on the wall above the stalls. This has survived the move into their latest home at the Centre Bell in 1996.)

Swedish Power Metal band Sabaton has a choral version of In Flanders Fields here:

Sabaton’s latest album is The Great War. They are a power metal band and so they play with speed, clean vocals, and are usually quite upbeat. They write songs about glory in war and military. The Great War is probably their finest album. Their songs almost always give a sense of glory to the characters they write about. But not this album. In several songs there is simply a lamentation that the soldiers who lost their lives did so for no good purpose. It was not until I listened to this album that I understood fundamentally why the Great War was such a terrible conflict.

In that war, the efforts of the European powers, using industrial processes, collectivism, and managerialism, turned the ENTIRETY of their nation’s productive capacity towards instruments of war which were designed to kill soldiers, and brought them to bear all across Europe and Asia. This was an effort that had begun under Kings such as France’s Louis XIV, improved under Napoleon and Lincoln, reaching its fruition in the Great War, and then perfected for profiteers in World War II. Against the might of that unseeing and unsympathetic monolith, where was there any chance of glory? There was little, and most were annihilated in an orgy of wanton carnage. Sabaton memorializes this in song when, 101 years later, we have forgotten:

Great War

 

Where dead men lies I’m paralyzed
My brothers’ eyes are gone
And he shall be buried here
Nameless marks his grave
Mother home, get a telegram
And shed a tear of grief
Mud and blood, in foreign land
Trying to understand

 

Where is this greatness I’ve been told?
This is the lies that we’ve been sold
Is this a worthy sacrifice?

 

Great War
And I cannot take more
Great tour
I keep on marching on
I play the great score
There will be no encore
Great War
The war to end all wars

You can listen to the entire album on YouTube here. The video for Great War is here:

To close, Rudyard Kipling, written for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897:

Recessional

 

God of our fathers, known of old,
Lord of our far-flung battle line,
Beneath whose awful hand we hold
Dominion over palm and pine—
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!

 

The tumult and the shouting dies;
The Captains and the Kings depart:
Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice,
An humble and a contrite heart.
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!

 

Far-called our navies melt away;
On dune and headland sinks the fire:
Lo, all our pomp of yesterday
Is one with Nineveh and Tyre!
Judge of the Nations, spare us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!

 

If, drunk with sight of power, we loose
Wild tongues that have not Thee in awe,
Such boastings as the Gentiles use,
Or lesser breeds without the Law—
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget!

 

For heathen heart that puts her trust
In reeking tube and iron shard,
All valiant dust that builds on dust,
And guarding calls not Thee to guard,
For frantic boast and foolish word—
Thy Mercy on Thy People, Lord!

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 11/10/19

If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road. …I think if you look at the present state of the world, it is pretty plain that humanity has been making some big mistakes. We are on the wrong road. And if that is so, we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on.

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

American Sun looks at the ongoing impeachment saga of Trump. As they note, this has been going on far too long for no prima facie advantage. I think the Deep State is attempting to get rid of Trump, an outsider, who could pry the cover off many, many dirty dealings. A look at Katie Hill’s resignation from the US House of Representatives, and what it tells us generally about those ruling us today. A review of Joker, which explains why Lefty freaked out about it: because it showed that their society-crafting creates conditions that lead to ‘lone shooters’, and the film gives them no room to bury that truth under gun control, white supremacy, or any of the other distractions. The ongoing study of the Anglo identity continues, with a focus on the Creole identity in the South: The Eternal Anglo IV. Mr. Landry revisits an old post on the Nixon Presidency and why he was ousted. It’s really good, do RTWT. You’ll find many parallels to what’s going on in Washington D.C. today. On the need for a strong Christianity:

The Puritan seeks to make everyone a priest, a theologian. Luther preached a ‘priesthood of all believers’ and his many, many successors, most of whom he would reject and despise, have built a society and a Church ruled by priests. Priests are necessary and good – they should command our respect. But they should also be ordained and submit to the accumulated wisdom of doctrine, of tradition, so that they may be responsible in exercising priestly power. Journalists, academics, activists, NGO executives, bureaucrats, pundits, scientists, celebrities – this is what the priesthood of all believers has wrought. We have a vast, bickering, informal priesthood, with no dogma, no discipline, and no tethering to ultimate realities. Our first priority in the political realm should be checking the power of these pseudo-priests and confining it to its proper sphere.

Courtesy of American Sun, this article on the ABC Epstein story that got spiked. This is a story that is not going away any time soon. No one believes the official narrative. The article is part of their Five Friday Reads, which discusses the Epstein death and what the response to it says about trust in the State.

Just Thomism on the need to make your moral choices public. He looks at Dawkin’s new book (which appears to be The God Delusion for teens), and asks if socialism is scientific. Also, on the contradictions of the modern media machine.

Mai talks about being a new mom at the Garden of the Internet.

Cambria Will Not Yield is not easy to summarize, which means it is worth reading. This week, Lost, on science used to distance us from our hearts, inherent worth, and God.

Jim comments on the ConservativeTM response to BAP, and just because they don’t say ‘genocide’, does not mean genocide is absent in their hearts. Seriously, the way the cucks go on denying the Great Replacement, the Left will be impaling them on spikes while saying they are ‘happy sticks’, and the cucks will laugh with glee.

Counter Currents looks at the ongoing Groyper battle against Charlie Kirk and Turning Point USA, providing a good summary for those unfamiliar with the controversy. Thoughts on Norway’s arrest of Greg Johnson, on his way to a Scandza Forum last week, for the crime of wrongthinkspeak. Follow-up, what Greg’s arrest can teach dissidents about international travel. Did you here South Africa’s rainbow coalition team won the Rugby World Cup? That’ll teach those Kiwis to culturally appropriate the Haka.

Vanishing American II looks at the ongoing impeachment talk, the castrated conservatives, contrasting the not so different positions of Nikki Haley and Rashida Tlaib.

Anatoly Karlin has some interesting demographic trivia.

GA Blog on some paradoxes raised in his prior post.

Al fin looks at Trump’s restocking of federal court judges, flipping some to a majority of his appointees already. This is a bit troubling. One would hope judges would be politically impartial. Exchanging one set of ideologues for another is not a solution, where political interests seek to do by judicial fiat what the legislative branch cannot do (or would never do). Also, the sacred cows of our time and their failure to describe reality. On why schools are hell for boys. A look at the effects of allowing first cousin marriages over the long term (1500 years), and a recent study on attitudes and exposure to Christianity. Do RTWT, Steve Sailer notes HBD Chick is vindicated by the study, and by way of Isegoria, we get a quick summary of it.

From the Council of European Canadians, terrorism may be down in Europe, but displacement proceeds rapidly. Ricardo Duchesne on how Statistics Canada endorses white replacement.

The Orthosphere gets weird, on the origins of the word Wyrd, being an Anglo Saxon word for fate. They discuss the special promise of our times, a slow death by spiritual asphyxiation.

Bronze Age Pervert’s Caribbean Rhythms Podcast is a discussion with Niccolo Salo. It’s excerpted here on Soundcloud (among other places). Full episodes are by subscription only.

PA Blog, on the army being imported to the West. I think the UN-Globohomo complex really thinks it can cure 3rd world problems by bringing the 3rd world denizens to the West. Why they think that will not cause the opposite to happen is beyond me. Let the Expulsions begin, and soon. Follow-up on the above: the Midwit Tough Guy, or globohomo indoctrination in the military. He visits the Imperial Capital and learns that if things suck, it can be best to wait it out.

Throne, Altar, Liberty looks at why Canada’s Conservative Party lost in the last election. It was not Andrew Scheer’s social conservatism. Conservatives seem unable or unwilling to try and come up with any platforms that are morally more appealing to voters than that of the Left, and so, they sputter and fail.

Endeavour discusses two Civil War movies, Gettysburgh and Gods and Generals, and the impact they had on his life. Do WTWT:

RottenChestnuts considers the ‘automata incovenienced with a soul‘, being those humans who cannot face the difficulty of being in the world, and sacrifice their agency in hopes they can be reprogrammed.

The Myth of the 20th Century Podcast looks at Halloween. It’s a lot of fun.

At The American Mind, an explanation of why BAP appeals to young conservatives:

For the young on the left, the political solution is easy: vote socialist so that you too can be the recipient of government benefits. For the young on the right, there is no easy solution. Clearly, typical conservative political action provides no solution. Mainstream conservatives have no realistic vision of life to offer. And, worse yet, conservatives have failed. To paraphrase an unnameable author from the right, conservatives have conserved nothing; they cannot even conserve two genders. That should be easy enough, but: failure.

More from The American Mind, how the modern treatment of masculinity mimics Atistodemus’ tactics in keeping the Cumae colony subjugated.

Evolutionist X has a revision the the autism spectrum. She concludes her review of Legal Systems Very Different From Ours. Also, on the dangers of kindness, and what humane treatment of prisoners actually requires.

William Briggs starts us off with the Sunday Summary Against Modern Thought: Things Which Look Miraculous But Aren’t. He looks at subjective probability and explains why it is objective. Just a little sarcasm: we have negative 12 months to save the planet! Follow-up: 11,000 scientists affirm that they know little, but can parrot the correct political lines on Climate EmergencyTM. Why not let 16 year-olds vote? The answers are not a surprise. He reviews the new scientific case which justifies pedophilia. He closes out with This Week In Doom: Forced Vibrancy of Diversity Edition.

Audacious Epigone looks at trust in the media, and discusses why you really should not. Also, some very interesting statistics on perceptions on who interferes in whose elections. His arguments for a coming economic crash, should Elizabeth Warren be the next President.

John Derbyshire compares Trump America with Brexit UK, giving a good summary of the latest developments in the UK’s Brexit. It is a partial transcript of last week’s Radio Derb podcast. The ‘too-soon’ al-Baghdadi jokes alone make it worth it. This week’s Radio Derb is on the family murdered in Mexico, and the horse the people will not follow: the GOP. A partial transcript is here.

Via Occidental Dissent, Tucker Carlson has a look at ‘Deep Equity’, which aims to educate school children in all the oppression they can handle:

Z Man looks at our modern states, with their arbitrary rules, and their chaotic evil orientation. On why the Right lost the battle, because they became economically focused, and left the spiritual and community aspects behind. On the grifters of the Right, getting high on their own supply. Z Man summarizes the causes of the fall of the Alt-Right. His Z Man Power Hour podcast follows up on last week’s episode, continuing his thoughts on how the Dissident Right should organize. The first segment, on the Left’s morality play, can be applied to the recent Canadian election, summarizing the reasons why Canada’s Conservative Party failed to oust the Liberals in the last election. He’s at the Mencken Conference and provides a summary of day one, including on the NAXALT argument.

From last week’s Five Friday Reads, fiction worth your time, from Zerohplovecraft: God-Shaped Hole.

Occidental Dissent on Brian Caplan’s case for open borders. I note the moment someone is saying there is a science and ethics behind anything, you’re being sold a bill of goods. Mr. Wallace also comments on the origins of the Alt-Right on the 40th anniversary of the Greensboro Massacre. The Right has succeeded, but for wrong reasons. He also considers whether Christianity is compatible with White identity, and the state of the US and its immigrant populations 100 years ago. He does a post-mortem on the Alt-Right, and is optimistic for the dissident future. There is an interesting post on the post-Civil War efforts in the South to resist Reconstruction, which led to Jim Crow laws. He looks at an Irish-Canadian academic who thinks the term ‘Anglo-Saxon’ should no longer be used, as it’s allegedly a term used by White SupREEmacists to connect to their heritage. So people labelled as such should no longer be allowed to claim a sense of heritage? The Left really does use disconnection from the past and heritage, not only to maintain cultural hegemony, but as a weapon as well. This raises another point…

For those not familiar, I’m Canadian. I don’t put blinders on when it comes to obnoxious behaviour by the locals, however. I’m not sure what it is with you arrogant, young, college educated (or university educated as we say up here) Canadians (or xxx-Canadians, like the academic above) and your social justice crap, but knock it off.

A few years ago I was staying in a lodge in Iceland. It is rare to run into fellow Canucks abroad, but I had the privilege of doing so that day. Another Canadian proudly announced her presence by scolding her Icelandic tour guide as his bunk-bed assignment plan was “ableist, sexist, and ageist”. I’m not sure he understood what she was on about. She then came over where I was and tried to strike up a conversation with me. Luckily, I was with some Estonians. While all of us could speak English, we wanted nothing to do with her. I told her in Icelandic that I did not speak her language, and she went away.

Barack Obama once told the Canadian Parliament that the world needed more Canada. I always assumed he meant the USA wanted more vassal states that don’t give them too much trouble. Youngish Canadians of social justice leaning seem to take this to mean they should proselytize for the Canadian Church of Progressivism wherever they go. Canada has gone from having a reputation for being nice, peaceful, respectful and decent, to one of scolding, arrogance, being snide, projecting an unearned sense of moral superiority, all while being “polite”, said by non-Canadians in a tone very far from flattery. And that condescending attitude Canadians have about Americans does not help, i.e. shut up about health care, guns, and how you’d never vote for Trump, already!

Most people know almost nothing about Canada, and our nation’s reputation abroad is rapidly going from ‘that place with the Rockies where those brave soldiers came from’ to ‘that place with those conceited obnoxious SJWs with that clown for a King’. Just fucking quit it.

Steve Sailer reviews Scorcese’s latest mob flick, The Irishman, in his Taki Mag column. He also asks why it appears to have taken so long to understand heredity.

Z Man travels to Oklahoma City and misses a lot of sleep. (It’s not as lurid as it sounds.) He looks at the withdrawal of US forces from Syria, the alleged assassination of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi which took place in spite of withdrawal, and evidence that democracy is a sham. On Ethics and Authority. The reason why depravity is tolerated is that there is now no viable authority left to rely in to repel it. The Children’s Crusade…of conservative writing. He explains why science has been overtaken by Scientific Theology, as rationalism and facts do not overcome feelings. His weekly Z Blog Power Hour is on how the Dissident Right can begin organizing: The White Shadows. Citizenship is worthless when no one respects it.

At The American Mind, Pablo discusses Chile’s recent bouts of civil discord, their Red October:

What is happening in Chile—our own Red October, or nearly—is important for the American audience to understand, because you are facing the same problem. This is one of the reasons, little understood in Chile, why President Donald Trump was elected. I think the similarity to Chile was precisely this: a legitimate social discontent of the majority during the Obama era, and an almost absolute disconnect between the progressive liberal agenda and the real daily needs of the people.
