Cantandum in Ezkhaton 12/29/19

Via Amerika.

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

Al fin on the causes of European decline.

Alf at Garden of the Internet on Envy.

The American Sun’s short post on the likelihood of impeachment, and the self-immolation of the Dems in the House. In the included video, I think its quite clear Nancy Pelosi has actually had a stroke. They have a case study on the use of Libertarianism as a tactical ploy, in this case in the porn ban debate. The case for survival by exile and taking the Yellow Pill. Closing out the week: Five Friday Reads.

Amerika with a short summary of those in charge. Moving the Bureau of Land Management to Colorado may have been a pilot test to break down the Deep State. The winning strategy in Afghanistan is an exit strategy. What socialists and libertarians are missing: ways to solve the real problems confronting the West. On recognizing ‘Crowdism’ as a way to save the West. A comparison of Nationalism to the Nation and ethnic self-determination. Democracy has become small groups of fanatics duking it out over who runs the show. The viewership of network news programming seems to bear this out. Arguments against Humanism.

Two favourite Periscopes this week – Monday’s:

Humanity in the West is like a drunk man punching himself in the face for calling himself a racial slur. It has become beyond tragic, beyond comical, and now just reeks with the stink of a mental health ward.

Plus, Christmas Day, of course.

The Anti-Gnostic on the latest Star Wars movie, which is disappointing for neo-Americans, but that’s what you get when progress means gutting everything of meaning.

William Briggs with this week’s installment of his ongoing translation of the Summa Contra Gentiles, Summary Against Modern Thought: How Demons Sin. He will break the 7th seal in 2020, by releasing a book (in paperback and Kindle format) that will trigger all SJWs, progs and the pozzed. No Doom this week, but a call to comment on what’s been going on that’s good in the world.

Council of European Canadians with the most important task for white people in the new decade:

Whites people must begin to organize, explicitly, for their own legitimate interests.

Counter Currents with an F. Roger Devlin essay on why the human sexes are complementary, not equal. Why impeachment is a sign that Trump must be supported. Encouraging signs for 2020, including a UK prime minister who can read Greek and Latin. Morris V. de Camp looks back on 2019 and discusses how the JQ has resurfaced. An Intelligent Persons Guide To Race & Racial Differences.

John Derbyshire has a partial transcript from last week’s Radio Derb podcast on just how long it is taking to build the Wall.

Guillaume Durocher on Yukio Mushima and his guide to understanding the Samurai manual of conduct Hagakure.

Faith Goldy on Québec identity and a letter to the Catholic church expecting it to stand up for itself:

The Insight genetics podcast (with Razib Khan and Spencer Wells) does a decade in review of human genetics. Genetics is a field that must be under constant Lefty scrutiny (since race and sex, and soon intelligence, are social constructs) as genetic research can turn the Lefty narrative on its head. These guys manage to steer clear of the poz, so enjoy.

By way of Isegoria, the odds of a civil war in the USA. Tyler Cowen’s thoughts onCharles Murray’s upcoming Human Diversity.

Jim on impeachment.

Razib Khan: Islam is not a race. Also, he comments on a defence of the NYT’s 1619 Project, and its implications: The 2020s, the decade of taking everyone seriously but not literally.

RottenChestnuts on democracy not scaling beyong local communities, expertise, and to be wary of those who never question their own knowledge.

Malcolm on a new paper discussing the detrimental effects of trying to bury the heritability of intelligence, and deny that different populations may generally have different intelligence levels.

Morgoth’s Review on 2019 – The Year the Narratives Died:

At the Orthosphere, JMSmith’s comparison of odiuos and odorous comparisons, and the origin of magis paris quam similes. A dissection of homosexual pride, and why the Catholic Church is being abandoned.

Patriactionary notes the Pope is apparently vying to be the Antichrist.

Matt Ridley on humanity’s best decade yet, with some optimistic predictions for the next one.

RottenChestnuts on hyperbole as a defence against a defamation suit. He notes the Left is praying this becomes a thing.

At Setting the Record Straight, Aidan Maclear on Proles, Carpetbaggers, and Reaction.

Steve Sailer notes that California’s 21st century infrastructure will be up and running some time in the 22nd. Is clannishness based on geography? Maybe, says a new paper, and it might be more prevalent on an East-West axis than North-South.

James True: The Zeitgeist Argues With Ad Hominem.

Vanishing American II on the age split of UK voters in the last election. Also, Christmas greetings. He ponders why censorship is coming from private actors, and not governments.

VDH asks if America is headed towards “good” fascism.

Vulture of Critique reposts a comment on what modern Christianity has become. It’s not complimentary. Also, Trump on James Comey: “A Dirty Cop At the Highest Level. Scum.

Z Man on Dumb Ideas, which these days are not so bad, as most of our leaders clearly are not thinking, much less coming up with ideas. On the Great Cover-Up, or how no one is liable for the Deep State’s spying on Trump. The West moves towards consolidation, which means stepping down will be the only form of social mobility left. On the issues caused by forcing unlike peoples together, and a solution: No More Weirdos.

Cantandum in Ezkhaton – Merry (somewhat blackpilled) Christmas To All

Jesus-and-Angels

Look for yourself and you will find loneliness and despair. But look for Christ and you will find him and everything else.

C.S. Lewis

The Council of European Canadians’ Christmas gift asks “What would Thomas Aquinas say about immigration”? Answer: Be Humane to Strangers, But Take Measures to Protect the National Good. Also, a Christmas card with links to medieval Christmas music.

Counter Currents says Merry Christmas, Infidels! Here is a list of many of their Christmas related articles. A superb article from Nicholas R. Jeelvy, on how the children of Europe are the children of winter. On the Last Day of Christmas, or how diversity is not a strength when it comes to celebrating our sacred days and holidays. Remember that Christmas is about beauty as well. All Fullmoon Ancestry wants for Christmas is for white folks to be happy. It is our holiday for celebrating the birth of Christ, after all. But not for the Israelis, who see it as a time to bomb the Syrians. Some thoughts on the Yule Festival, and timing of the Winter Solstice and Christmas. To close, a link to a rare recording of Gabrieli’s Hodie Cristus Natus Est.

Occidental Dissent posts some videos on the 1914 Christmas Truce in the Great War. His Christmas greeting for you.

A merry, soul-less, black-pilled Christmas from Amerika. Also, the best Christmas greeting for the times in America.

Jim with Christmas wishes for all.

Patriactionary with Christmas blessings for all Rxies.

From Vulture of Critique: God rest ye merry, Gentlemen, and best wishes to the Sun. Also, tidings of Qomfort and Joy.

The House of Representatives voted for impeachment this week. Amerika sees it as a sign of a fracturing nation. RottenChestnuts sees it is a symptom and a feature of democracy. Vanishing American II asks: Where Do We Go From Here? Z Man explains that the impeachment is a symptom that US democracy is not what it seems.

The Brexit Bill passes, after Boris Johnson crushes it in the UK election. Occidental Dissent was the first to comment. People starved to death in the streets, hospitals shut down, the police and army were overwhelmed, there was pillage, rapine, and rape everywhere, and guys in stud leather and metal platting were killing women and children for petrol. Oh wait, that did not actually happen!

Now being serious, it will be interesting to see how it all unfolds early next year. I think the EU is much more likely to suffer as a result of Brexit, as other members will start leaving as well. Will the UK move towards a trade deal with the US or its Commonwealth co-nations (Australia and Canada are the friends with the best benefits). Next on my wish list for the UK: let the expulsions being.

Amerika starts the week with Brett’s Rule: “It states that whatever people tell you as narrative is not true, but whatever they act on when they have something to gain is, at least in their eyes.” An important consequence:

In the grips of a Narrative, most people go into denial by affirming the Narrative. It tells them something comforting, namely that they do not need to change, least of all to undergo the difficult process of self-actualization, maturation, and confronting the need for transcendental purpose, or that which discovers an order larger than the self, finds beauty in it, and seeks to maximize and nurture it. The denialists demand conformity to the methods used by everyone else so that no one must face the end of the temporary stability and pleasant distraction of denial. If everyone conforms and does the same thing, it seems as if the System is succeeding and the Narrative is absolute religious and scientific truth.

RTWT.

More from Amerika, on poor sleep quality. Amerika speaks to something BAP also spoke about this week: memes used to reduce morale among the dissidents. In Amerika’s case, the White Genocide meme. On the necessity of hierarchies, by way of example in corporate organization. Is it a white pill? A black pill? How We Can Escape Civilization Collapse. If we do not stop our current course, the results will be Auschwitz Times A Million.

Favourite Periscope of the week: Friday’s.

Bronze Age Pervert’s Caribbean Rhythms podcast this week is a total body detox, with a little thrown in about demoralizing the whites.

Audacious Epigone notes that impeachment is not working (for the Dems, at least). Here’s a look at demographic opinions on banning porn. He compares our current situation to Middle Earth in the Tolkien mythology. Some thoughts on concerns about anti-Semitism, along with a post on deviance from the Holocaust narrative, and how future non-whites probably won’t care.

Vulture of Critique with an extensive collection of links, summarized as ‘x just gotta x’.

Just Thomism on a modern psychological problem: viewing people as angels with bodies as pets. A look at Christ as technology, and the difference between that and human technology.

The Myth of the 20th Century crew does a year in review on this week’s podcast, with special guests Borzoi and Titus: the year in which the conspiracy theory went mainstream. It’s long, at 4+ hours, but well worth it. Do LTWT.

Morgoth’s Review asks if the modern city destroy’s men:

(Occidental Dissent agrees here.)

From Nature: a sharply worded letter of concern that the word ‘supremacy’ be all raycis! Steve Sailer comments here.

RottenChestnuts looks at what might just put western civilization in its grave: Dramarama. He also looks at the state, how it has been an object of worship in modern times, and the need to desacralize it: The Least-Worst Government? RTWT

Counter Currents with an eye opening story about what white blue-collar men face in their working world. A review of David Hoggan’s The Forced War, a second look at the causes of World War II. Hey Canucks, they’re coming for your hockey now. A post on Kshatriya, one of the four varna of Hindu society, and what it can teach us. From the Bhagavata Gita:

Kshatriya never flees from the war, he shows bravery, skill, chivalry and patience in the face of war. Donation to the society and protecting citizens (Kshatra duty) are the norms of a Kshatriya.

For content producers, Reactionary Thought posts a video on how to migrate your videos to BitChute. He also looks at internet platforms changing their terms of service and what it may portend.

Patriactionary on the US Department of Agriculture’s newest trading partner nation: Wakanda. Honk-honk.

Courtesy of Occidental Dissent, an interesting video on why modern architecture is not good for us:

Malcolm comments on JMSmith’s Orthosphere article last week on Reason as a tool, and sometimes a dangerous one. He reposts his prior thoughts on the political Right as a bulwark against entropy and decay.

Lord Black of Crossharbour sees Boris Johnson’s election as a pivotal move away from the lethargy of western Europe to a better alliance with the USA and the big Commonwealth nations.

John Derbyshire looks at two incidents of non-reporting of race in the MSM. They sure don’t seem to want to identify perpetrators of crimes when they are certain races. Which seems odd to me since race is simply a social construct…right? This week’s Radio Derb podcast is on building the wall (slowly) and US political matters.

Thomas F. Burtonneau on one of his favourite Russian songs (also Stalin’s favourite song):

By way of Isegoria, Orwell’s thoughts on loyalty, and how rebelling against an establishment may be supporting it.

The Scholar’s Stage on the life of Mormon President Thomas Monson, and how his NYT obituary shows you should never trust journalists.

Z Man on the feminism of the Right which now promotes the same ideas as 1st and 2nd wave feminism, just under the guise of tough and gun toting sexy girlzzz! (Ramzpaul responds here.) He looks at the Fed’s recent $500 million move, the repo (repurchase) market as a cause, and its place in a financial house of cards. (Audacious Epigone responds and develops it further. RTWT for both.) On Right Wing Cosmopolitanism, and its blind spots, which explains why Conservative Inc. cannot figure out why Boris and Donald are winning. He considers the various ways societies can be held together, and how the US was and is held together: Fear, Force & Convenience. This week’s Z Blog Power Hour features Z Man catching up on audience correspondence.

Razib Khan diagnoses Twitter behaviour.

Black Pigeon Speaks discusses Paris Syndrome, among other things:

Jim raises a good point about not using the words your enemy uses, lest your meaning end up being attributed to their meaning. To follow through on his advice is to need great courage to label their words as what they really are. Lord Hamilton once said something like…such an attitude is a sure way to have a mob trounce you about 15 minutes after you start. Jim also looks at Libertarianism, compares is to classical liberalism, and finds little difference.

An excellent essay at the Claremont Review of Books on the invention of victim categories in the United States, in particular with Mexican Americans Hispanics. It appears the creation of victim groups is a feature, not a bug, of democracy. We are seeing this dynamic play out to perfection in Canada. Our first proponent of victim classes as political blocks was Pierre Trudeau (father of current Prime Minister Justin). He made the ability to bribe victim classes with gibs and favourable government treatment a permanent pillar of Canadian law (see section 15(2) of the Charter).

Shylock Holmes looks at crimethink, and a ways to defend yourself against accusations of it.

The Zerothposition considers impeachment, compares it to the award ‘Hero of the Soviet Union’ under the old Soviet republics, and then makes a prediction on how abuse of impeachment may lead to Caesarism. RTWT.

Thanks to many generous readers, William Briggs is back on Sundays with new sources for the ongoing Summa Contra Gentiles translation: Summary Against Modern Thought: Sin in Demons. Greta Thunberg threatens to put world leaders up against a wall. For most world leaders, I’m fine with that. A “scientific study” that confirmed cops killing blacks reduces black birth-weight is retracted because…it was wrong. A special (((This Week In Doom: God’s Chosen People Edition))). J.K. Rowling gets attacked for defending a women who said that sex is biologically determined (Occidental Dissent also comments.) He closes up the week with This Week In Doom – USS Harvey Milk Edition.

PA Blog notes Nick Fuentes nailing it on the Capitalism/Socialism fake dichotomy:

 

Steve Sailer with another bit of news I thought was fake: Pakistani lawyers lay siege to a hospital and attack Doctors in retaliation for previous attacks. The State of California cannot afford to keep its streets safe and car windows intact. He has an excellent review, with a much needed lesson in false accusations, of Clint Eastwood’s new film, Richard Jewell, over at Taki Magazine. He looks at the response to Ms. Rowling’s defence of a woman who insists sex is biological, with a good theory about why we are seeing all this gender dysphoria madness. Another response from the WaPo, but do scroll to the end and read the caption in the screenshot.

Evolutionist X discusses the economics of 3D printing. She also has a links post with an open thread and a request for New Years resolutions.

American Sun on the real impetus driving the impeachment process: CIA spooks embedded in Congress and the Deep State. Henry Delacroix looks at the history of the Afrikaner mannerbund Broederbond, and the lessons it can teach you in building your own. On why the Star Wars franchise had to be emasculated, from guest poster Bad Billy Pratt. On John C. Calhoun, the US Constitution, and the reason why Somalis must settle in Minnesota: to wreck concepts of identity, opening the door for domination of the US population as a whole. A look at opium and drug epidemics generally, and lessons the US could learn from Mao Zedong. To cap the week: Five Friday Reads. It asks a question worth looking into: Can the US (the West, Canada, perhaps even North America) have its Reconquista?

At the Orthosphere, JMSmith discusses the lady who cannot return our love or show us mercy: the earth. He follows it up discussing the Blight of Telmarine Science, a science which robs us of our spirits. Some poetry on the consequences of wrongspeak: The FEAR. A fine follow-up about the meek maintaining order in 19th century Texas.

Filed under: ‘now be a good goy and watch this’:

Occidental Dissent notes that Christianity does not require equal love for everyone. A brief review of the long and seedy (is there any other?) neo-con / US intelligence service connection. An interesting post on why Luther was not the origin of Liberalism.

In the канадец Soviet Socialist Republic, Le Dauphin sends marching orders to four members of his cabinet to draft hate speech removal regulations for Canada. It will be interesting to see where this goes. He’s got a minority government, so he has to watch his step. This may go nowhere. Note the wording though: “regulations”. Regulations made by the Canadian government are not subject to debate by Parliament, but rather are passed by the Governor-in-Council, which will basically be Trudeau’s hand picked cabinet. Like most of his talk, this might amount to nothing. If it is passed, the only chance left to get rid of it would be by the courts and a challenge under the Charter, a cost not easily borne by average Joe. Maybe the internet service providers, or big tech, will challenge it, or maybe they won’t. Our media is already subsidized by Trudeau, so you can count on them to acquiesce all while trumpeting free speech. Trudeau demonstrates that he is a wanna-be tyrant who will make Canada his personal fiefdom. Congrats to all the sheeple who keep him in power; you’re getting the government you deserve.

Titania McGrath, so wokely:

Lastly, the winter blahs have got me down. Food and booze stopped working on the 17th. But Black Sabbath’s eponymous album always lifts my spirits:

Boris Johnson wins the UK election in a landslide. Labour gets crushed…flat. Good riddance. Ulster and Scotland are not happy, appearing to want to remain in the EU. Occidental Dissent on the Left in the UK losing its mind, the most common outcome when they encounter reality, and a post-mortem on the death of the Labour Party. Brett Stevens posts his thoughts on the election over at Amerika, seeing the voters as starting to recognize that the Left cannot provide a strong, secure and stable society. Morgoth’s Review with a very interesting story about the collapse of the Labour Party:

Audacious Epigone on the coming bust of all those value bubbles, and negative interest rates. He runs some numbers on the Democrat candidates versus Trump, with some great graphics. He reveals a surprising find on abortion: ladies are more pro-life, men more pro-choice.

PA Blog on what we do not know about WWII, especially about a homeland for (((Them))) to be carved out of Polish territory.

Vanishing American II discusses how pity can be used against you. He looks at the ongoing never-ending grievances lobbed at the South.

Lord Black of Crossharbour gets blackpilled on Canada and the throne speech by our new minority government.

The Orthosphere’s JMSmith considers his blessings, including some nasty accidents that led him to make some changes. Bonald discusses his experience with various kinds of ‘woke’ training. How did that Alice Cooper song go? “School’s out!”? Actually, it was William Henry Davies. A couple of blogs worth noting: Malcolm Pollack leans towards Theism, and Deogowolf’s old site, The Joy of Curmudgeonry. If I had a post of the week, it would be this look at reason as a dangerous instrument: Beware the Jaws of Ruthless Reason.

John Derbyshire discusses the Fishmongers’ Hall attack in London and his hopes the US does not follow the UK in its self-immolation by immigration. His Radio Derb podcast this week in a mixed bag, including the UK election and the anniversary of the Fort Hood shootings.

Council of European Canadians looks at current writings on indigenous nationalism in Canada. Also, a black pill on the myth of white genocide, which Ferdinand Bardamu argues is actually a case of ‘white suicide’.

Shylock Holmes has a eulogy for his recently passed grandmother. RTWT.

Vulture of Critique looks at the history of the ATFs ‘Fast and Furious’ program, where they allowed and tracked arms sales from the US into Mexico, which are now showing up in all sorts of crimes, even in France.

VDH looks at the history of impeachment proceedings in the United States.

Throne, Altar, Liberty looks at the damaging relationship between environmentalism and socialism:

To understand why socialism is not a friend of true environmentalism, it is important that we understand the nature of socialism. Socialism is not being compassionate and charitable to the poor. Socialism is not “standing up for the working man.” Socialism is not the application of the classical idea of restraint to human greed. The many different socialisms that arose in the nineteenth century all sprang out of the same common idea: that the private ownership of property is responsible for most or all human suffering and must therefore be eradicated.

RottenChestnuts sees the impeachment and is reminded of 20th century chemical weapons strategy. He also has a rant about Basic College Girls…the ones running the impeachment show.

Evolutionist X does a little research on old time preparation of meat, and bluing (or aging) it.

The Scholar’s Stage discusses fissures appearing in Chinese society which may mark trouble ahead.

American Sun on how the Democrats have lost the narrative on the Trump fauxpeachmint. A look at ancient (and not so ancient) Aztec ritual sacrifices and Progressive white washing of the same. A look at changes to modern cinema including the insertion of liberalism into movies. They look at the Catholic faith and its parallel decline with Conservatism Inc. This week’s Five Friday Reads is particularly good. I thought the Afghanistan War was useless, and it’s shocking to discover that so did the people fighting it. Read both the article and the thread on it. They also point to this City Journal article on the costs of the Social Justice Movement, not in dollar terms, but I suppose in the immolation of meaning.

Dr. Spencer gets technical and discuses climate models that are not lining up with temperature data.

Jim discusses how progressivism is like the AIDS virus. He also discusses Good and Evil. From the comments:

Jim:

 

This post gives the definition of good and evil – that the words are just not an arbitrary assignment of the world into “us” and “them”.

 

This post was provoked by a complaint in another forum about me using the words “good” and “evil” – such childish, old fashioned, ignorant bigoted words that dismiss entire categories of people as less than human and shut down intelligent discussion between properly sophisticated people.

 

I revisited the holiness spiral, since that is what is turning the state religion evil, and addressed the Old and New Testaments to show that the definition presented here is consistent with long established tradition.

Both are RTWTs.

Amerika looks at the ‘Half Earth’ environmental plan, which would return half the planet to its natural state with its only planner being nature. This leads to a discussion of the difference between Left and Right conservationism. A quick review of Houllebecq’s Serotonin. A look at the deceptive public relations practiced in South Africa as a distraction from crime and genocide. The Four Horsemen: Part III – The Hedonic Treadmill, and Part IV – That Big Night Train to the Adios. On the similarities of the modern person and Tolkien’s character Denethor (from Lord of the Rings). A great post on porn and sex magik, constructive uses for sexual desire beyond release, and the use of porn, like empty carbs, to keep the masses docile. Who would have thought: Diversity Proves Incompatible With Free Speech. On Irony Poisoning:

Irony poisoning is when one’s worldview/weltshauung/reality tunnel is so dominated by irony and detachment-based-comedy, that the joke becomes real and you start to do things that are immoral or wrong from a place of deep nihilistic cynicism.

Endeavour continues his Lies of the Enlightenment Series with a hard look at the concept of human rights:

Physics be raycis: Steve Sailer reviews a xirl science physics paper which discusses how the exclusion of black women from science contradicts the theory of General Relativity. (Go look at the picture of the ‘white-adjacent’ oppressors.) Mr. Briggs also comments, quoting extensively. Soon, we won’t need large particle accelerators to create Higg’s bosons, we’ll just need to check our hadron privilege.

Alf with spot-on wisdom about women and sex.

Anatoly Karlin looks at the Flynn Effect in Russia.

Al fin on the potential medical uses of psychedelics. On the consumption and inventory of oil and natural gas and how the US is poised to become THE supplier for world. We Albertasheiks have been aware of this for some time. The US has since I can remember aimed to control the world supply, but now is going to be a serious supplier as well. It’s not clear how long this will last. What is very clear to me is that as US production has increased, so has funding for propaganda against the oil sands in Alberta. It is a failing of our nation and sovereignty that Ottawa has bought right into it. Al fin also has a great essay on what science is, and remember, it’s not a database it’s a process.

Razib Khan on the end of the scientific culture:

This post is not an appeal. Or a warning. History marches on. I believe the time of wolves is at hand. Science will become magic. Prepare yourself. Who has the power? Shelter with them.

Malcolm quotes Attorney General Barr on the Russia collusion investigation and looks forward to John Durham’s investigation. He also considers brilliant people from the past who no one seems to know about anymore.

The Zeroth Position with a detailed essay on the mechanics and dynamics of Cancel Culture.

Murdoch Murdoch has an Ask Me Anything episode #3.

Counter Currents has a story about encounters with feminists and the barriers they place around themselves. On Nazis versus Commies, as to who was worse, and how the term is used by both the Right and Left. A look at the anti-Semitic roots of the UK labour movement. They also take a hilarious look at modern poetry by reviewing the current issue of Poetry.

William Briggs announces his sources for his ongoing translation of Summa contra Gentiles has been taken down. (I’ve been identifying it in error as the Summa Theologica for about a year. D’oh!) A gift for all just in time for Christmas: Briggs’s Guide to Modern Art. It’s all duct tape and ripe fruit from here. Conservatives do not want to ban porn. He closes the week with This Week In Doom: Disney/Marvel Cash In on Perversion Edition.

Z Man asks us to Never Forget, as our media is constantly introducing new scandals which keep us distracted from the things we should be concerned about. Z Man likes to talk about the parallels between our current political situation in the West and the French Revolution. He’s found a very poignant comparison and I worry he’s right. Our rulers seem to have completely disconnected from what actually concerns their subjects, in favour of maintaining their hold on power. For those aspiring to rule, liberal democracy has become nothing more than a never ending marathon of constant campaigning to the next election. Actual issues which need to be addressed are ignored. On the Community, another name for the ruling Cabal in Washington. On fiat money as an example of how our modern malaise is not about institutions which are bad, but rather, that those institutions are being wielded for bad purposes. The UK is finally dealing with the crime of the century, people making racist gestures, and dealing with them harshly. Will the next step be dealing with the south Asian gangs who use white girls for underage prostitution rings? Oh, wait, wrong racism. My bad. This weeks Z Blog Power Hour podcast is the Ben Shapiro show, and no, Ben is not a guest, but an piñata.

Amerika begins the week with Outliers (#72), a collection of articles that may have been passed over before, with commentary. Well worth looking at. A look at the Millennials, a generation that was isolated like no other before it. On why STEM has to die, you know, because it’s a search for reality, and reality does not care about feelings or equality. Not an endorsement for Tulsi Gabbard, except where she sends Kamala Harris packing. I like where Mr. Wilkinson goes with this: Understanding the Deeper Tao of The Brown M&Ms. Brett Stevens also releases a list of still active dissident blogs. A look at drug policy, and why anarchy needs (or means?) natural selection. A lesson from a command error before the Pearl Harbour bombing.

I encourage you all to look at Amerika’s Periscope postings, and put them in your RSS feed. They provide a great list of relevant articles every week day. This week’s favourite: Tuesday. Do go check out the others.

Over at the cleverly named Fake Nous, Michael Huemer explains why Intellectual Conformity is Adaptive, or why folks seem to avoid thinking as if it would kill them.

Some Canadiana: Council of European Canadians looks at Progressive hypocrisy in Canada. Looks like the writer, Stephen Summani, is not far from myself, either geographically or politically.

Gerry at Throne, Altar, Liberty discusses free speech and Holodomor versus Holocaust.

The Myth of the 20th Century crew talks about the Edmund Fitzgerald, a iron ore freighter that sank in bad weather in Lake Superior. They claim the sinking was a plot by Canadians. On behalf of Canada, yeah we totally sunk that ship, so give us the Northwest Angle and no one else gets hurt. Canada’s Gordon Lightfoot wrote a popular song about the sinking a year later:

By way of Isegoria, a look at how high stakes decisions under pressure are actually made. Discovering something new will likely get you accused of heresy. South Dakota is the wild west when it comes to deposits and trusts. (They have no rule against perpetuities! This just in: South Dakota law students report highest level of happiness.) Swedish conditions are appearing in Norway.

At Vanishing American II, a lament for civilized discourse, and a call to clean up our act and to cease profanity.

Razib Khan looks at DNA and genome sequencing for use in crime fighting, and the new non-identifying DNA Solves, a voluntary database for folks who want to help fight crime. I can think of many other uses this will eventually be put to and they’re not good. He also comments on the tendency to make certain topics sacred and unchallengable, with the latest example being the 1619 Project, an exercise in pure propaganda.

Guillaume Durocher on the life of the world’s most hated NEET: Hitler.

Evolutionist X considers diamond rings and how they became symbols of marriage. She looks at claims that America is not ‘full’ yet, and how that’s a bad standard to apply to a country

Throne and Altar on how one cannot be prepared to be doxxed, especially by the media and to your employer.

Morgoth’s Review looks at spin control after the London Bridge stabbings:

He also argues that nationality cannot be based on consumer preferences:

Steve Sailer eulogizes Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones, the latest sacrifices to Diversity, Inclusion and Equity (DIE), on London Bridge. Their deaths will not be in vain, and every time an imported career criminal makes my city a little less safe, and helps expand a no-go-zone, I’ll shed a tear for the people we sacrifice to make sure DIE…never dies.

Dr. Spencer looks at 2019 temperatures and comments on the ongoing Climate EmergencyTM.

PA Blog on the split in Generation X caused by cultural changes in the early 90s. Being of the border of the split, I have to say his idea has merit. He reviews the history of dissident blogging. On the mentality of police officers when facing protesters or various political alignments.

Matt Ridley (of The Red Queen fame) looks at the campaign to stop gas production by hydraulic fracturing in the UK. He also looks at the struggle over Golden Rice (genetically modified for carotene content). My preferred headline would be “Greenpeace wants Asian kids to go blind and die”.

At Reckonin’, Ayla Stewart departs from a public life, noting that actual conservatives may have to leave the internet.

Black Pigeon Speaks on why Japan rejects globalism for spiritual reasons:

GA Blog looks at Conditions for an Enduring Technostructural Civilization, which includes a look at Liberalism’s imposition of equality and denial of reality.

No summary needed: I’m a Teacher and a Waste of Money.

William Briggs begins the week with the ongoing Summa Contra Gentiles translation Summary Against Modern Thought: Intellectual Substances Causing Magic Aren’t Evil By Nature. He then looks at Harvard’s claim that as atmospheric CO2 increases, you get dumber. There are two classes of Climate ChangeTM advocates, Grifters and True Believers. The recent Lancet Climate report is an excellent case study to help you learn the difference. Another useful distinction is that the Grifters often have degrees and experience in communications and marketing. A little digging will reveal their work is purely about propagating the modern Climate CrisisTM narrative. CATHOLICS, confess your Eco-sins! (He’s not kidding.) He looks at two studies which used opinion surveys to discover that 1) air travel moves people around and causes CO2 and ‘N’ emissions, and 2) men like it when women hit on them, but women prefer being hit on by higher status men! I’m still reeling…as my entire world view…shattered, my reality…fragmented. I may never be able to type…without…excessive…ellipsis…ever again. He closes out the week with This Week in Doom: Folau’s Revenge.

Al fin on the China Model of governance as an explanation of their rise, but also of some severe problems. In OECD countries, most 15 year-olds are unable to tell opinion from fact.

Malcolm reblogs an Angelo Codevilla article on the inevitable US Civil War II. He takes a very deep dive into his axioms, considering the validity of Euclidian gemometry and atheism.

RottenChestnuts gives a short history of Gorbachev’s Perestroika under the Soviets, and finds analogues in the Democratic party today. He continues his posts on revolt versus revolution with Part III.

Z Man on the very aptly named Jim Snow laws, which amount to revenge on whitey. He looks at the rhetorical misdirection of Conservative Inc. in protecting the Progressive order. On the coming mobilization, or how whites are going to move away from diversity when it gets to be too much (as examples, blockbreaking then, and Californian migration to Nevada, Arizona and Idaho now). It doesn’t matter who ends up in the ruling class. If they are not trusted, then the masses will revolt. The best explanation for the Left’s behavior is that they are a hive mind. His weekly Z Blog Power Hour podcast is on the freak show of the Left.

Reykjavik, Iceland

Just Thomism with a great post on man’s place in nature, and the rejection of Hell in modern times:

The perfections of polite society developed with the construction of buffers between human life and the natural world. Man alone in the face of nature is a very fragile and utterly outmatched creature. He dies easily by accident or by what are now called minor injuries or routine sicknesses. For all that, it’s a mistake to think he saw the world as a wicked or monstrous. Nature also provided everything he ever was provided with and gave him every glimpse of the beautiful he ever received. If we were left alone in the woods we might learn something of the fearfulness of nature but we would see little of its sublimity; when we go camping alone in nature we might see something of its sublimity but relatively little of its fearfulness- but the actual primitive experience is as abstract to us as a discussion of liberal regimes would have been to aboriginals.

More from Just Thomism: what are we looking for in feminine and masculine.

American Sun on the cracks in the Democrat lines at the battle of impeachment. A post on sex without procreation and the dangers of reproductive rights meaning subsidizing non-procreative acts. Cyrus O’Neill considers the life of Henry V of England and how his own perspective has changed. The ongoing cybernetics series continues: Serial Experiments Cybernetics Layer 08: Ego. If I had a Post of the Week, this would be it: White Devils or, How We Got Here and Where We Are Going. On No Nut November, it being a sign we are looking for leaders again, and why it led to accusations of antisemitism. Mr. Landry is back with Five Friday Reads, with some support and advice for the Groypers.

John Derbyshire’s November Diary is a grab bag of notable goings on, including bits on social justice in academia, his new puppy, and woke math. This week’s Radio Derb podcast is on the knife attacks near Fishmongers’ Hall in London.

The Anti-Gnostic looks at the Cathedral and gravitas, and notes that most current Presidential nominees have no command presence, because the role is no longer even relevant.

The Orthosphere with the if I had a second best post of the week, this would be it: Ahrimanic and Luciferic Evil. On forsaking the comforts of resignation and maintaining hope. On when living becomes harder because we fail to keep good (proverbial) fences.

Audacious Epigone on Michael Bloomberg’s attempt to lead the Democratic purity spiral: Immigrants Improve Our Religion. Also, what people think of government workers and jobs, by demographic.

Patriactionary notes the Holodomor is now being focused on by Canada, and goes onto ask why we allied ourselves with a guy like Stalin in WWII.

Occidental Dissent continues the Southern History Series with a look at the socialist populist Senator Huey Long. The recent shooting at the Pensacola, Florida Naval Air Station was by a Saud. A very good point is raised: if America is evil, why the hell was he there?

Harper’s has a decent article summarizing the current Leftist Lingo.

Anatoly Karlin with a map of Kazakhstani IQ scores. The scores seem much higher where different ethnicity is largley concentrated. I wonder. He compares anti-Semitism in the USA and Russia. Those intending to emigrate from Russia has fallen to a record low.

Cambria Will Not Yield with an early Christmas blessing:

Tragically that future has come upon us at such an accelerated rate that the dystopia is no longer in the future, it is here. But the last word will not be spoken by the liberals and their allies. In the beginning was His word, and in the end His word shall prevail. I will dwell in Christmas Land again this year and every year, and it is my hope and prayer for thee, that you are able to dwell in Christmas Land this Christmas and in all the Christmases to come, on this earth and in His house of many mansions in heaven.

Lastly, Trump annexes Alberta…well, it was a nice thought anyway.

Keep on reactin’, and be like the owls…for now.

Mykines, westernmost point of the Faroe Islands

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

Last Thursday was Thanksgiving in the United States. Happy belated Thanksgiving America!

Occidental Dissent notes the Left cannot leave it alone: on the Deconstruction of Thanksgiving. They also note various attitudes towards Thanksgiving, some good, some so wokely! Counter Currents suggests to whom and what to be thankful for. Steve Sailer has a fantastic topic for conversations at family gatherings. Z Man’s Happy Thanksgiving brings back the old ritual of beating Libertarians. Malcolm expresses thanks and gratitude in these uncertain times. Want more? Counter Currents lists some of its past articles on the holiday. By way of Isegoria, a list of all the Thanksgiving Posts. Audacious Epigone looks at who is celebrating by demographic. Best wishes from RottenChestnuts:

So be thankful for what you have, comrades-in-arms, for as long as you are blessed to still have it. Western Civilization has survived worse than this. We’ll be back… but the night is long, and twilight is rushing in. Be thankful for the light while it’s here. Happy Thanksgiving, and God bless.

Occidental Dissent reports that the Church of England blames Christianity for the Holocaust. Vladimir Putin compared the EU to the USSR, and predicts its collapse within ten years. On the pozzing of video games. It’s about bloody time: Democracies appear to be on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Why is China now a near superpower? Because Washington allowed it. Sascha Baron Cohen is wrong, as Wiemar Germany shows us censorship does not work (at least, for what he claims it does). On the malleability of Christianity over time as the dominant culture shifts. The strength of diversity is demonstrated once again in a London bridge stabbing. Shortly thereafter, the scene is repeated in the Hague. More details emerged afterwards. In the US, democracy does not exist for the working class and the donor class has the real power. They’ve found another extinct humanoid species in South Africa, bringing the total count for humanoid species to nine.

A diversion, a hike I’m hoping to do in a couple of years:

Razib Khan on Chinese Identity, genetics, and culture.

Alf reposts an old post on male archetypes, which he develops further looking at Jimian paths to power.

Cambria Will Not Yield on the perils of the hardened heart.

Jim looks at Trump’s efforts to drain the swamp, and resisting a Democratic colour revolution.

Ricardo Duchesne comments on immigrants as an instrument of societal undermining over at Council of European Canadians.

John Derbyshire’s Radio Derb podcast is a grab bag (at VDare), but do LTWT, if only for his bit on the Penis Museum in Reykjavík and the new Vagina Museum in London:

The Myth of the 20th Century crew has a special guest this week, Dr. Matthew Rafael, a Russian history and Orthodoxy scholar. They discuss the Russian October Revolution, its ramifications and compares the Soviet Empire to the modern American Empire. As usual, it’s very good so do LTWT.

The Zeroeth Position looks at economic fallacies of holiday shopping and Black Friday.

By way of Isegoria, posts with an excerpt from Scott Adams new Book Loserthink. An account of the gear carried by US forces in Laos during the Vietnam War.

Zero Anthropology reviews Giants: The Global Power Elite, by Peter Phillips, which attempts to answer the question: who is actually in power?

Throne, Altar, Liberty looks at Canada’s shift on the Israeli/Palastinian conflict, prompted by our Prime Minister, Captain Airhead. He also makes short work of arguments for veganism.

trump-tweet-rocky-meme

Al fin with a grab bag of butt-snaking medical robots, space factories, and the green energy fiasco. On why men are funnier than women…because they have to be. Trump becomes a hero meme in Hong Kong after signing two bills meant to support human rights there.

Mencius Moldbug continues his new series at American Mind: The Clear Pill, Part 2 of 5: A Theory of Pervasive Error.

PA Blog on a meme worth posting (via Heartiste). He notes some parents are starting be models and provide guidance to their kids again…good news for GenZ, good news for us all.

American Sun provides a quick overview of the narrative management techniques in Impeachment Deux: Ukrainegate. 7 More Ways to Ride the Tiger, or how a young man can get buy in this crazy, doxing, cancel culture world. The Left hates you, and wants you to suffer, so act accordingly: Why Aren’t the Commissars Satisfied? A look at our future with surveillance so prevalent it creates a near Panopticon. An old essay from Landry on why the US should go to war with the Mexican cartels. An excellent post on the dynamics of the patronage economy.

Morgoth’s Review considers his options in the upcoming UK election. It’s blackpilled:

This week’s Bronze Age Pervert’s Caribbean Rhythms podcast is on art appreciation and fraud appreciation.

Just Thomism looks at justifications for transexualism. Also, metaphors for man as the image of God.

From the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, why evolution is wrong because it makes you afraid of the wrong things: “Evolution makes you scared of: Immediate short-term threats…What actually kills you: Climate change (and other long-term threats).” To quote the magnificent TL;DR “citation(s) needed.”

VDH gives an overview of the impeachment proceedings.

Malcolm with a service notice, and he talks about impeachment a bit. He follows up with his thoughts on Modlbug’s latest Clear Pill post, with more follow-up here. JMSmith (of Orthosphere fame?) comments on status in academia. He sees hand prints in his neighborhood and it reminds him how human nature has not changed much.

Z Man looks at the impeachment proceedings from the last week. He notes the presence of a certain group. On the Democratic Presidential candidates and the signs of US political decline. He tries to watch College Football on TV, which goes as badly as expected. It does provide some very good lessons on why you should cut ties with the ‘Idiot Box‘. For his weekly Z Blog Power Hour podcast, he looks at the mailbag and answers questions from viewers.

Audacious Epigone notes that it’s Zoomers who seem more supportive of gun rights.

Counter Currents on Sascha Baron Cohen’s calls for censorship online. Who was that guy who sang “Throw the Jews down the well”? Borat somebody… On why you should stop shopping for Christmas. Well, this explains a lot of what is happening in colleges and academia: a review of Herb Childress’ The Adjunct Underclass. They compare and contrast views on ecology of the Left and Right.

RottenChestnuts looks at the differences between revolts and revolutions; Part II, where he applies his findings to the English Civil War.

William Briggs begins the week with the customary Summary Against Modern Thought: The Power Of Psychics & Witches Is Not Morally Good. On the march to make university education worthless Equality: Universities the World Over Eliminate Testing. It has been reported that the Spooks are forcing their employees to wear LGBTQ affirming lanyards. It’s probably a psyop. HORROR! TERROR! On Black Friday, the Consumers rise, consuming everything in their path! (It’s an article so frightening that Señor Blanco and Liberae Sunt Nostrae Cogitatores deny all liability for any harm to readers who click that link.) This Week In Doom – Sacrificed Sheep Edition finishes the seven day march. He looks at a study claiming candles cause cognitive performance to decline:

But now my co-equal, or even main, goal is for you to develop less respect for science. To not love any scientific announcement with the same ardor you might have done in the past. Science, though it sure is swell, is no longer the shining example of intellectual acuity it once was. There are still areas in science and technology free from the currents, but they are decreasing. Besides, too much love of science leads to scidolatry.

Lord Black of Crossharbour on cancelling the Washington impeachment debacle that might as well be a TV series called Impeachment.

Guillaume Durocher with lessons from the life of Charles de Gaulle.

Setting the Record Straight has a novel take on the Trump Presidency, describing it in ancient terms as the struggle by a figurehead to actually take power, opposed by a dominant priestly caste: Chronicle of King Donald I. Well done Mr. Maclear.

Wrath of Gnon:

National Review has a long and detailed article about misinformation and bad faith in the medical profession on transgenderism.

Amerika on the current woke trend of population control. Admit it: criminality is genetic. Thoughts on pipe tobacco, and its marketing as a reflection on our society. On the philosophical shift after the US Civil War, embodied in the Civil Rights Act and later, the 14th Amendment: in the year 1866. On the purity spirals of the Left and Right in the US. I knew it! Trump is LITERALLY (doing something similar to stuff done by) Hitler. On a cultural wave that could save the west. A quick look at how diversity killed the Rome, and how we are in a similar boat, plus a look at Nikole Hannah-Jones and the concept that racism is a symptom of diversity. This week’s news and Pipe Meditations, with a good introduction on the waning of the West. On Market Socialism, the dominant ideology in the West.

I encourage all to have a look at Amerika’s Periscope postings, which provide summaries of and links to interesting articles for your review. They are a weekday daily thing it seems. My favourite this week was Thursday’s. Here are Monday’s, Tuesday’s, Wedndesday’s, and Friday’s. (Too many references to summarize here. It’s well worth your time to check out daily or put in your RSS feed.)

Evolutionist X looks at how tall humans can grow, and what the limits are. She also looks at Finnish genetics, language and pre-history.

Patriactionary on the Thin Line Flags, or modified US Stars and Stripes as a form of identity for various state services. Seems odd. On why you should be interested in the film Ford v. Ferrari, because it’s pissing off all the right people. Chick-fil-A turns out to have donated money to some shady groups, including the SPLC.

81xbwq8xrql1778573786294998348.jpgSteve Sailer on a very short review on race differences. He poses a good theory on why Greta Thunberg, among others, have so many diagnosed mental disorders. There was a fourth spy in the USA’s Manhattan Project which contributed to the Soviet’s leap into nuclear weaponry and the Cold War. Hungary’s marriage and birth incentive programs seem to be off to a good start. His weekly Taki’s Mag column is a review of Michel Houellebecq’s Serotonin. David Frum accuses Tucker Carlson of being a shill for a white nationalist alliance centered on Moscow. Get back on your pills Mr. Frum. This kind of shit shows Canucks are also capable of sheer lunacy: pereceived weakening of their privileged status is killing white people. Speaking of, on declining life expectancy in America. He notes a very entertaining conspiracy theory for the 1999 Chinese Embassy bombing in Belgrade.

 

I’m not sure how I got to this, but an interesting essay take down of the book Why We Sleep. Read it just to dispel some very common myths about health hazards from lack of sleep.

The Orthosphere begins the week looking at the origin of the terms ‘glower’ and ‘leer’, as related to Greta Thunberg, and on climate strikes lacking conviction. They ask: is America a vampire? A look at Rosalind Murray’s The Good Pagan’s Failure.

To close, Clutch covers my favourite CCR tune:

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