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 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.)
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.
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.
Lone Lake, Waterton National Park, Alberta, Canada (Before the 2017 fires).
William Briggs, Statistician to the Stars, begins the week with his ongoing translation of the Summa Theologica: Summary Against Modern Thought – How Psychics and Witches Really Work. 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. So much doom, so little room: A Special Pre Doom Friday: Bloated Tranny Edition, followed up by This Week In Doom: Chick-fil-a’s Cuck-a-Doodle-Do Edition.
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:
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.
Dr. Spencer discusses recent articles on how climate extremism has won the battle for hearts and minds.
Keep on reactin’, and be like the Owl (for now).
