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.
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.
Via Patriactionary, a column at Taki’s Mag on why the tranny issue is…well, made an issue. He also discusses the new Black and Purple Commemorative Poppies, because, you know, all sacrifices in war are equal, but some are more equal than others.
