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
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.
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’.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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:
Keep on reactin’.
