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

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.

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.

The first work of fiction I read on the recommendation of a fellow Neoreactionary was A Canticle for Leibowitz. It tells the sometimes humourous, sometimes harrowing, but always meaningful tale of a monastery, dedicated to the preservation of old knowledge. It is set at three points in the future, after a nuclear war destroys civilization, when it rises again, and then again falls. Over at American Interest, they summarize, review, and give a biography of the writer, Walter M. Miller.

New Murdoch Murdoch, a call for the liberation of the peoples of Europe: Coniugator (one YouTube mirror here and below). Hunter Wallace at Occidental Dissent comments, reminding us that the current crisis is a civilizational one. PA Blog also takes note, and provides the YouTube link, and the mirror at Cheekyvideos.

Mr. Briggs, Statistician to the Stars, begins the week with Summary Against Modern Thought: How God Can Act Apart From Providence. He switches to the false faith of the new Environmental Religion, which arises from ignorance and the Elite. Gaudia Certaminis continues her discussion of the trans movement with Part II of Let’s Talk About the Trans Movement. Ianto Watt guest posts, to discuss who is a true shepherd – Good and Bad Bishops: The Lesson of Dagger John. Okay, Mr. Briggs gives 100% and discusses the ADL’s new database of “Hate Symbols”. He finishes the week with This Week In Doom – Extreme Transphobia Edition.

Malcolm on the efforts to get Wokeness into school math curriculum…which means getting rid of math, ‘cuz whiteness and oppression. He notes a letter to the UN stating there is no Climate EmergencyTM, signed by 500 scientists. Silly scientists. It’s not about science, and never was.

Guillaume Durocher on Greta Thunberg and the modern Children’s Crusade for climate change action.

The Scholar’s Stage on the insecurity of the Communist Party of China and how they are dealing with it (on their anniversary). The CPC has now lived longer than its Soviet counterpart did.

An update on the Notre Dame restoration. Cool pictures.

Morgoth’s Review on the jailing of Billy Charlton in Sunderland for not liking it when a white woman gets gang raped by immigrants racist hate speech.

The Myth of the 20th Century podcast is on Soldiers of Fortune – from Mercenaries to PMCs.

Audacious Epigone on white support for affirmative action by class and political orientation.

Z Man begins the week taking a hard look at the latest impeachment efforts. His take on things makes a lot of sense. He considers why conservatism failed, and why the Left are reactionary in their own way. RottenChestnuts responded with an idea on how to convince normies – Africa: The Video Game. Z Man also notes that the West’s current troubles are a feature (not a bug or error) of democracy, and what its underlying flaws are. Mediocrity explains quite a bit about our present democratic malaise. He takes a crack at quantifying the value of ‘diversity’. He also looks at the correlation of intelligence and left wing politics His Z Blog Power Hour podcast is particularly good this week. He discusses events from A Century Ago. LTWT. The parallels with what is going on now in the US, and the lead up to the Great War, are eye opening. As Z Man says:

I think the parallels between our age and the events leading up to the Great War are quite remarkable, so it is a favorite topic. History does not necessarily repeat itself, but it is good to remember that there is nothing new under the sun. The things we see from our ruling class, for example, are not new. In fact, they should be predictable. Understanding how a panicked ruling elite responded to the Red Scare a century ago will help us understand how they are going to respond to the White Scare.

Al fin looks at Space X and its plans for the Moon, Mars, and beyond.

The Orthosphere’s Richard Cocks starts the week with a bang. He discusses teaching ethics, Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorem, utilitarianism, and strategies in Game Theory: Tit For Tat. He follows it up with reasons why God is needed, even if we are free to determine our own path. He then discusses why, put another way, the mediator between the head and the hands must be the heart. (I take liberties with that last one.) Filed under the title is the best descriptor – To the Alt-Right (and Everyone Else): Jesus Christ is a Strong God and You Need Him. Henry Delacroix on the rise in female prostitution. Bonald discusses the tendency for Catholics to move as far Left as the Church allows. Kristor discusses The Wonderful Horrible Integrity of the World:

Be then comforted, in that. God knows how this all works out, even if you do not. On then, into the fray; and let each man do his duty, in confidence, and in mutual solidarity with all his creaturely fellows.

This little cultural phase change we are about to enact and suffer, as the deadly dying old liberal order of the Enlightenment winks out at last, paralyzed and confused by its own contradictions, and in a paroxysm of violence and confusion is superseded by some New Thing? No big deal. Such is history, ever.

Alf at the Garden of the Internet shitposts about Climate ChangeTM. He also discusses Brahminism and building a new religion.

At American Sun, Epaminondas reviews Bronze Age Mindset. He exhorts BAPs exhortations as the true ideology for the new Right. The continuing series on cybernetics looks at Stafford Beer. This week’s Five Friday Reads, on Moldbug’s latest appearance.

Occidental Dissent continues their American History Series, with the Civil Rights Act of 1875. It turns out, scientists suck at diet advice: Red meat is okay again. (Steve Sailer also notes the red meat ‘oopsie’ here.) Bernie Sanders has an arterial blockage, gets surgery, and suspends his campaign. More thoughts on Eric Foner’s new book The Second Founding, discussing the second Constitution of the USA, the 14th amendment to the first one. Universal fires an employee for using a white supremacist hand gesture, in a picture with a 6 year old. I’d like to know whether the employee acknowledged they had deliberately done so, or went “wtf?”, before their employment ended. Matt Parrot has 20 Predictions for the 2020s. An interesting, if off-topic, note about glaciation over North America, providing the natural boundary between the North and the South.

Nassim Taleb once said that the argument “Think of the children!” is the last refuge of scoundrels. Zero Anthropology shows it’s not. When it stops working, say “Think of the FEMALE children!“. You’ll be a scoundrel par excellence. Zero Anthropology also takes a shot at Bell Canada (one of the biggest Telco’s in Canada), for its self-serving efforts to go green.

Council of European Canadians notes a discussion on the downside of diversity to take place at UBC October 9th. Already, tolerant student groups and professors are not tolerating it and trying to shut it down with ‘Bold ResponsesTM‘. A student discusses their experience taking a survey course in Anthropology Wokeness at UVic. What is Radical Traditionalist Conservatism?

VDH on the latest Democrat coup attempt, and how it will benefit Trump.

Cambria Will Not Yield on maintaining faith in the face of Liberalism: The Fruits of Compromise.

Kill To Party on first internet loves.

In Copenhagen, a Danish woman once told me “Canadians are not nice. They are polite.” Occidental Dissent shows we cannot even be polite anymore, as protesters at a PPC event in Hamilton, Ontario block a senior citizen, with a walker, from getting to the event. This is now the image the world sees of us, as reported by Sky News of Australia.

Steve Sailer on a new statue for that unsung hero of the Civil War, HoodieJeansDreadlock man! Soon to grace the streets of Charleston, Virginia. Occidental Dissent takes note, and is unironically supportive. Steve’s weekly Taki’s Magazine column is on hair hysteria and the white-people-touch-my-hair crisis. He follows it up with some interesting news about a fake dreadlock cutting attack on a 12 year-old girl in D.C.

Just Thomism discusses Sin and fallibility, and the grounds for Mechanicalism.

Evolutionist X with her continuing review of Legal Systems Very Different From Ours, this week, on Somali law, which is interesting as it considers a pastoral legal system. Also, a Screed for the Short, or the dating life of short men. It’s worth a visit just for the panel of Tweets.

The Anti-Gnostic travels to Beirut, with his story told over at American Sun. He also covers the evolution of governance in the US, from competent leaders to managerial analysts. He links to this video:

Counter Currents gives a brief political history of President Nixon, and lessons learned from Watergate. Carson King gets cucked. He must have felt like he got kicked in the teeth after getting ‘cancelled’ while trying to give a children’s hospital a million dollars. This shows you just how dangerous the Woke have become: The heretics shall be burned! Damn the consequences! (The madness ratchets even higher: The reporter who started the cancellation has now also been cancelled for things he said years ago.)

More from Counter Currents, on the fall of the Alt-Lite, with a focus on the fortunes of Mr. Molyneux. A review of Patrick Dineen’s Why Liberalism Failed. Some good stuff in there: RTWT. Also, a review of The Karl Muck Scandal. Mr. Muck was a German American who conducted the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Anti-German sentiments during and after WWI drove him back to Germany, where he became very close to Adolph Hitler.

Speaking of WWI, remember the guy who played Tyrell in Blade Runner? He was in Kubrick’s Paths of Glory too. A brief biography of Joe Turkel, and a review of the film. Anton checks out the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia in Tallin. Hilarity ensues.

To the Edge of Time’s series on making a new aristocracy continues, with a look at Napoleon’s Legion of Honour.

RottenChestnuts discusses life in the Middle Ages and turning piety away from social justice for the world towards social benefit in your locale. Also, on Roman Law, or how to deal with locals when running an empire.

We are on the wrong road. And if that is so, we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on.

I have to say thanks to Steve Sailer. He goes into detail about posts I would otherwise never look at (so as not to up the click count of the absurd and ridiculous). I can read the gist of such articles and someone on our side gets the click. It’s a Planck scale victory, but a victory nonetheless. For example, the #MeTooer of Richard Stallman and her obsession with her hair.

Mr. Sailer also brings up White Supremacy, and in particular, Mexico’s initiative to combat it. I was listening to Sam Harris’ recent podcast with Kathleen Belew, author of a new book on White Power and its alleged link to paramilitary activity in the US. Sam pushed her a couple of times to clarify what was meant by White Supremacy, and she was somewhat slippery. She at one point seemed to say that Detaxers and Free Men on the Land were also White Supremacists. (The biggest Detaxers I’ve met were from South Asia. Assuming detaxers are white is so racist.) I gave up 2/3s way through, but it was clear that ‘White Supremacy’ is rapidly becoming anything which dissents from the Progressive ideology of our states. It’s a code phrase for undesirables or the ‘enemy within’.

The Babylon Bee subsequently causes Steve Sailer to retire (okay, maybe just in fun). Also, the latest Milkshake Duck, Carson King, who raised a million dollars for a Children’s Hospital. BUT, he repeated some bad stuff on Twitter a while ago, so the Des Moines Register just HAD to out him, you know, for the Public Good or whatever. Speaking of dropped for ‘reasons’, Mr. Flynn (who discovered the Flynn effect) has his book on free speech dropped by his UK publisher. Steve’s weekly column in Taki Magazine…removes any doubt about Michel Foucault. A commenter points to an old Just Thomism post which compares Foucault to Noam Chomsky, invoking Thomas Sowell’s competing visions.

Mencius Moldbug, aka Curtis Yarvin, returns for a five part series on the workings of Liberal Democracy in the USA at AmericanMind: The Clear Pill, Part I. Occidental Dissent takes note. Malcolm also provides a summary. For those new to Reaction, his blog Unqualified Reservations is a seminal work. An excellent place to start is an An Open Letter to Open-Minded Progressives.

Nancy Pelosi started impeachment proceedings against Donald Trump. Trump had asked the Ukrainian President to look into Hunter Biden, who was getting $600,000 a year from a Ukrainian natural gas company for…stuff. It appears Joe Biden had previously threatened to cancel a billion dollar loan to the Ukraine if they did not fire a prosecutor investigating his son (because the prosecutor was corrupt, of course…creepy Uncle Joe HAD NO IDEA his son was being investigated.) This drama is getting difficult to keep track of. Many of our favourite bloggers commented this week (see below). Tucker Carlson has a good summary.

Anti-Gnostic predicts Bernie Sanders will not be the Democratic nominee for President.

Scholar’s Stage on the Title IX bureaucracy, what it signals about American society, and its impact on children:

By the dawn of the 21st century then, America had been reduced to Tocqueville’s nightmare. American culture had once been possessed with a can-do ethic of self resilience and civic respect. When a problem emerged, they quickly gathered together the people needed to solve it. That America is gone. Atomized and isolated, Americans do not have the knowledge, personal experience, or institutional means to solve their own problems. Problems are solved by impersonal bureaucracies. Politics—and so much else in American life—has shrunk to petitioning the powers that be.

Council of European Canadians on the CBC, and its role as Liberal controlled Ottawa’s preferred propagandist. An interesting look at Camille Paglia, and her approval of pederasty. Tim Murray vents on some comments by the leader of Canada’s farthest Left party. Mr. Lewans discusses a call for more Chinese in Canadian media, and the growing fracture between the multicultural urban and white European rural areas of Canada. You know what you do when the media is not covering your issues? You cover them yourself. and find a way to reach your people. However, in Canada the trend is you demand the existing institutions allow you to hijack them instead. Jim is right: all we do is knock over the apple carts. We couldn’t plant apple trees to save our lives.

Myth of the 20th Century with their excellent weekly podcast, this week on Lothrop Stoddard and his work, The Rising Tide of Color.

VDH: “Joe Biden reminds us that sometimes losers compose history.”

Morgoth heads south, and makes a short documentary on modern London, an ancient tree, and how the UK has grown away from its roots and humanity. Do WTHT.

Mr. Briggs begins the week with Summary Against Modern Thought – Providence’s Plan. What are they putting in the water in Oregon? A proposal by Gregory Mark Conan to put chemicals in food and water to improve behaviour. You can guess what behaviour needs improvement. Does no one think of Soma? Reavers (from Firefly/Serenity)? An interim report on the corruption of authority, or why Conquest’s 2nd law is true, and what is not reactionary goes Left, eventually and always. An interesting post on the Georgia Guidestones, elite occult practices, and the Illuminati Ball…which reminds me of that last Stanley Kubrick film. Mr. Briggs crunches the numbers to show the extent of the Republican-Democratic gap in college professors in the USA. His This Week in Doom – Vagina Museum Edition highlights the gloomy and cringey events this week. The PEACE (Police Exercising Absolute Care for Everyone) thing must be a joke…but the moment you say that to yourself these days, the sinking feeling that it’s not immediately follows. Honk honk.

Guillaume Durocher with goings on in dissident France, who, after sentencing a man to two years jail, a €45,000 fine, and compensation to his (((victims))), appears to be competing for Number One Police State with the UK.

At American Sun, filed under ‘the title is the best summary’: Musings on the Eternal Fudd and the Validity of Non-Extremist Opinion. Earl Shetland begins a series on cybernetics, looking at the works of Norbert Weiner, but also discussing an issue with the Left. Henri Delacroix on how domestic US politics made its biggest competitors, with a focus on China and Turkey. Mr. Oslo considers how people who are not in power respond during a civil break down.

tumblr_lleh62IzBB1qa42jro1_1280

Counter Currents looks at martial arts training. They also discuss the ways Whitey can identify themselves to get on the Oppression Gravy Train. This is a fine story about Chile’s 9/11…in 1541. It’s short. RTWT. Anton discusses his experiences staying in hostels in Europe. They pay tribute to Martin Heidegger. A work in progress: How “Civil Rights” Happened, in the US. (Occidental Dissent has a companion article and timeline of US State segregation law history.) An interesting review of Ash Donaldson’s latest dissident futuristic fiction: From Her Eyes a Doctrine.

Alf at Garden of the Internet on the latest sacrifice to Baal Climate ChangeTM, Greta Thunberg. (If you are interested in the Who behind Greta, it’s a long, deep rabbit hole. Start here.) Also, on Immortality: have kids, raise them well, treat your wife properly, and everything else will be gravy. RTWT.

Throne and Altar on why we should aspire to mediocrity.

Overcoming Bias discusses Dreamtime Social Games, and the tendency for societies to change preferred status markers biased on what threatens them at the time.

Guillaume Durocher discusses the retiring EU Chief, Jean-Claude Junker, and what he got wrong in his tenure, with Belgium and Brussels (where the EU Parliament sits) as a prime example.

Orthosphere gets its snark on, with Mr. Burtonneau discussing low student achievement, high tuition costs, and its ‘rock-solid’ connection to Climate ChangeTM. A taste:

Several Skype consultations were also arranged with Elizabeth Warren, noted Native American law professor and current Democrat Party presidential wannabe for 2020. “We wanted to incorporate the authentic Native American perspective,” Mausse explains, “as part of our diversity mandate; and everyone knows how environmentally sensitive Cherokees like Senator Warren are.”

Speaking of (between 1/64th and 1/1024th Cherokee) Elizabeth Warren:

Al fin on the racial marriage preferences for a subject’s close relatives, by race. In that article, he has a link to a list the top 10 countries with the most beautiful women (which totally pussies out by combining USA and Canada). I think such lists are highly personal, and invite all to discuss their preferences in the comments below.

Evolutionist X continues her look at Legal Systems Very Different from Our Own, with Icelandic law (mostly from before the acceptance of a Norwegian King in the 13th century.) Mind your ‘Þ’s and ‘Đ’s. She also has a few meandering thoughts on Native Americans, Domestication, and Potatoes.

The Zeroth Position has a book review of C.A. Bond’s Nemesis: The Jouvenelian Versus the Liberal Model of Human Orders. (You can find the book at Imperium Press.)

RottenChestnuts answers Z Man’s question: Why so few exemplary NFL coaches? My quick summary: good coaches are good leaders, and the coaching profession grinds the sane ones out. Do RTWT. He also discusses the Climate Cult, and how cult membership is not the issue, but rather, how you use the Cult to get money out of normies. He follows up with a Part II, which relates the Reformation to the current madness with the Democrats in the US, and to Carson King (see above). He also discusses ‘Liberty’ as Locke understood it, and restoring Liberty means to once again be free to accept the consequences of your actions.

manchineel-grenada3

Fruit of the Manchineel Tree.

Zero Anthropology has an article on close encounters with dangerous fruit and the broader lessons such encounters can teach.

Malcolm points out a discussion with John Batchelor on the coming civil war and whether the Left’s actions lately are a sign of weakness or strength. On the Biden/Ukraine affair, he notes the Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters treaty between the US and the Ukraine. On the transition from Puritanism to Progressivism, and the last step, seeing WWI as a religious crusade. On the Trump/Biden Ukrainegate (are we calling it that yet?), Malcolm notes a convenient drop in ‘Whistleblower’ qualifications, which no longer require first hand knowledge of the dastardly deed. (You may have seen some law type shows where at this point, the lawyer-character objects, saying ‘hearsay’. That’s a real thing. Just not for whistleblowers anymore.) Have a look at the comments as well.

Occidental Dissent has three Chicago crime reporting blogs to look at. I look at SecondCityCop when I have time. A discussion of the Civil Right Act of 1866, and the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution and its profound effect on governance and the balance of power with the States. This reminds me of the impact of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms up here in the North. Speaking of such impacts, the ADL updates its Hate Symbols database. Bowl cuts, seriously? This will soon be on that list: A picture of all those charged in mass shootings in the US this year. Hmm. A very good post on Southern Conservatives’ overall goals. Do RTWT. A sample:

Southern conservatism is not Northern conservatism. It is not derived from reading Friedrich Hayek, Milton Friedman or Ayn Rand books. It is not based on classical liberalism. Instead, it is an organic tradition that is deeply rooted in our history and the traditional values of our people.

Southerners are social conservatives. As a people, we value order, cohesion and social stability. We also value liberty, but we do not value anarchy. Within Southern culture, there is a sense that there is a point at which liberty, tolerance and individualism can be taken too far which is when it becomes destructive to the social order and social stability. These changes are virtually always imposed on the South from outside the region. This is what produces backlashes against liberalism.

From the perspective of self righteous liberals, we are motivated by “hate.” Who could possibly dissent from the glorious progress of liberalism as it has spread its tentacles across the world since the Second World War poisoning, disrupting and destroying traditional cultures in its wake?

Occidental Dissent was busy this week, and continues with an answer to the question: What Happens When Trump is Gone? They have an example, which is just the beginning. Further, OD discusses the “mainstream” and the exclusion of sane discussion from it.

Z Man examines the brouhaha around Ukrainegate, referring back to the show put on against Nixon: The Ghost of Alexander Butterfield. He asks the question: Is Washington too corrupt to fail? His weekly Z Blog Power Hour podcast is a look at the SJWs, which he notes in one instance, talk like MLK, but act like the KKK (something Razib Khan also noticed this week). Z Man then discusses the Madness of Anti-Racism, magical thinking and denying biological reality.

From Throne, Altar, Liberty, an essay on Trudeau’s hypocrisy, what ‘hypocrisy’ means, and the moral collapse of our times. It’s mandatory reading for Canucks, and an RTWT for the rest, who may enjoy this sample:

The acceptance of progressivism’s new moral standards requires the belief that we have undergone some sort of massive, collective, quantum leap forward in moral understanding, starting about seven decades ago. Considering that these same decades have seen the desire to bring future generations into our world decrease dramatically, as indicated by decreasing fertility rates and the demand for contraceptive technology and abortion, the desire to leave this world increase, as indicated by rising suicide rates and the demand for euthanasia, and a huge increase in the use of substances that either induce an artificial euphoria or numb the senses as well as countless other ways of escaping reality, this seems highly unlikely. Leaving aside the consideration of these things as moral issues in their own right, collectively, they are all indicative of a major drop in happiness, which has been recognized since ancient times as the end to which morality is the means. This is hardly consistent with what would be expected from a quantum leap forward in moral thinking. The evidence rather suggests that we have been in a period of serious moral decay.

I remember my young, naive days, when Hypocrisy was that Death Metal band from Sweden. How things have changed…for me, for the west, and especially for Swedes.

Also from Gerry, a solution to the vaping problem amongst youths: get them smoking tobacco again. I know, “its bad for you”, but he makes good arguments.

Cantandum in Ezkhaton is published every Sunday, morning-ish (Savannah, GA time).

Cantandum In Ezkhaton 09/01/19

Oh God of Earth and Altar
Bow down and hear our cry
Our earthly rulers falter
Our people drift and die
The walls of gold entomb us
The swords of scorn divide
Take not thy thunder from us
Take away our pride

  • G.K. Chesterton

Normally, a Cantandum will cover a whole week: Sunday at 00:00 to the next Sunday 00:00. This week will be short as I’m off to points unknown for the long weekend. I’ll catch-up next week. This means this post has articles published up to Friday night. (I try to post Cantandum early Sunday morning). Any articles that did not make it in from over the weekend will appear in next week’s post.

The Orthosphere discusses hate, resentment, wrath and revenge. The final words are important for understanding why it’s called ‘hate speech’ or ‘hate crime’…because those with power are not intended to be covered by such laws. Thomas Bertonneau with a witty aside on little lists of deplorables, from the Mikado. A word origin post: The Twittle-Twattle of Twatling Twatlers. A review of the purity of Puritans, and the impossible task of staying on the right side of the woke religion of the West: Black Hearts Down. A further discussion of the link between Puritanism and the modern Progressive.

American Sun has a guest, Chicago Civil Servant, discussing the reemergence of old ideologies. A take down of Adrian Vermeule. Mr. Landry discusses a recent visit by Roosh V in Five Friday Reads. It’s well worth an RTWT.

PA Blog discusses attacks on Poland, in 1939 by you know who, and today, by Globohomo: “war”, it hisses. Also, on choreographed dance from the 80s onward.

Guillaume Durocher discusses Tim Wise’s proposed solution for white replacement: lower birthrates for women of colour too.

Myth of the 20th Century with their weekly podcast: The Case for Global Cooling.

Steve Sailer ponders what course the US would have taken without slavery. Also, a Great Moment in Affirmative Action. He also posts an interesting article from 1992 on Mr. Epstein. Every time you turn over a stone Epstein has stepped on, something nefarious pops up. As noted by Mr. Landry below, Whitney Webb has been doing extensive research into this matter:

Her articles have also been turned into spoken form over at Soundcloud. Part I is here.

Throne, Altar, Liberty on Canada’s Nazi scares, who benefited, and how the current Nazi scare feels very familiar: History Repeats Itself. Our latest Nazi scare involves a member of the Canadian Armed Forces allegedly recruiting for Nazi a organization called “The Base”. (He is now missing.) Uh-huh. I will give credit where it’s due: a convenient scare during the run-up to an election, justification for further restrictions on free speech and association, plus further weakening Canada’s military in the process. It’s the Liberals buttressing power in their finest form.

So many reviews this week. Alf anticipates the new Tool album. Mr. Oslo at American Sun reviews Lionel Shriver’s The Mandibles.

It’s been a while.

Malcolm on Michael Mann and his inability to prosecute his defamation claim. Mann is Mr. Hockey Stick of the Climate ChangeTM racket, and a major figure in ClimateGate. He sued Dr. Tim Ball after he made some alleged unsubstantiated claims about climate research and AGW. Mann’s claim was likely struck due to no prosecution of the action. Which means, it was SO important to him, he did nothing to advance the litigation for years. Let’s be clear, the costs award was probably only for the application to strike the action, are likely only a proportion of the actual legal costs, and the Court did not comment on the merits of the case. Still, Mann looks like a schmuck and a liar for saying on Facebook that Dr. Ball did not want the case decided on it’s merits, when it was Mann’s delay which led to his case being struck. I was looking for a written decision on this but there may not be one. Mann stated the court exercised its “alleged discretion” in dismissing his case. (It was not an ‘alleged discretion’…see the BC Rules of Court, 22-7(7), for the very real discretion to make such an application.) Mann also has 30 days to appeal the ruling which struck his case. It will be interesting to see if he has the stones. Jim also comments here.

Also, Malcolm with some quick links: Common Sense On Mass Shootings.

Just Thomism on Denying Darwin.

RottenChestnuts endorses the CCCP! (Committed Christian Culture Project.) See what I did there? So did he, but much better. Have a look. He also discusses the NYC school matter, which involves Mayor Di Blasio desegregating the school system, by getting rid of ‘gifted’ schools and programs (which are mostly attended by White/Asian students, for reasons we now cannot discuss without expecting a 5 ruble note.) Further, his thoughts on the radical American Revolution.

Mr. Briggs with the Sunday regular — Summary Against Modern Thought: What Fate Is. Ianto Watt guest posts with something scarier than a White Nationalist…a White InterNationalist! Do RTWT…it’s a WINners world now. Mr. Briggs on cannibalism in academia, and Fat Bastard’s baby-eating thought experiment: Nice to Eat You. He announces San Francisco’s new policies towards the use of terms relating to criminal activity. Felons are now ‘Justice Involved Persons’. I’m wondering what part of ‘justice’ such persons were involved in when murdering and raping. I think that old Scott McKenzie song needs a rewrite. Perhaps:

If you’re going to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers Kevlar in under your hair what you wear
If you’re going to San Francisco
You’re gonna meet some gentle justice involved people there
For those who come to San Francisco
Summertime will be a love-in have no ‘felons’ there
In On the streets of San Francisco
Gentle Justice involved people with flowers in excrete their hair filth, there

Much better. Mr. Briggs himself is also a poet: The Last of the Summer Whine. Lastoy, This Week In Doom: How Depressing Edition.

Z Man begins the week thinking about the trade war between the United States and China. On life as a Cuckservative. He discusses why in the US, both sides of the political spectrum, intellectuals are absent. He discusses the ultimate end of all this equalism: equality in chaos and the graveyard. On the next Presidential Election, which will be a last fight between Boomers. He gives some ideas about how cynicism and disillusion are indicators of the coming rebellion.

Dr. Spencer on how we need to stop putting up with that crap and just nuke those fucking hurricanes already! (Or, not.) All that doom mongering in the MSM over the Amazon burning down is examined. He also explains the Climate ChangeTM disinformation campaign. It’s well done. Do RTWT.

Fascinating.)

Spandrell on the Hong Kong riots, which are Bioleninism in action.

Finally, if you ever needed proof Canada is in a one-party political system: Liberals ask voters to “chose forward” while Tories vow to help Canadians “get ahead”. (The Conservatives should be flogged for labeling their brand of prog-lite ‘Tory’.)

‘Chose forward’? ‘Get ahead’? It’s not too late, to whip it, whip it good!

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 07/28/19

The doctrine of the natural origin and growth of society is the distinctive Tory doctrine of England, the very opposite to the theories of Locke and the Fathers of our late Republic. In adopting it, we begin a great conservative reaction. We attempt to roll back the Reformation in its political phases; for we saw everywhere in Europe and America reformation running to excess, a universal spirit of destructiveness, a profane attempt to pull down what God and nature had built up and to erect ephemeral Utopia in its place. Liberty was degenerating into licentiousness, and “anarchy, plus the street constable,” stared us in the face. We lead off a new reactionary Reformation, and Christendom must follow our lead, or soon be involved in social chaos and confusion.

Cambria Will Not Yield – Unstudied From The Heart:

Traditionalist movements based on an intellectual adherence to abstract systems are not the type of tradition we need. We need a heartfelt faith, we need our Jesus, who lived in the hearts of the antique Europeans and will come to the hearts of the men and women who ‘regress’ to old Europe.

Also from CWNY, The Humanity of God and the Inhumanity of the Liberals, well worth an RTWT.

Alf has an update on his book. Also, his thoughts on Memetic Sovereignty.

Jim discusses the Mueller Testimony. I don’t think Mueller is senile (at least to the extent he portrayed). He was evasive and slimy about it. If someone had asked him “Why can’t you “go there”?” he probably would have suddenly gone deaf to avoid answering shortly before pleading the fifth. Jim is correct, Mueller is aware of some greater dirt.

Malcolm gives a service notice and a recap of this week’s events.

A report from American Interest on the colonization of East Germany by West Germany and the cracks in the facade of German unity:

Everyone here is getting nuts about the climate issue,” Antje Hermenau tells me over drinks that same night on Dresden’s historic town square. She would know: a native of nearby Leipzig and longtime resident of Dresden, Hermenau was a Bundestag member for the Greens soon after reunification. But she has since broken with the national party, to great public controversy, seeing the Greens as disconnected from the fundamental concerns of average Saxons. Her complaints can sound familiar. Today’s Greens are urbane bohemians who look down on rural residents, she says, intent on regulating the diesel cars that sustain their livelihoods out of existence. In Bundestag hearings they grandstand about the necessity of installing unisex toilets in Berlin while ignoring the economic plight of their countrymen.

… …
Hermenau has no nostalgia for the communist era. She sees the German Democratic Republic (GDR) as an illegitimate regime that was brutally imposed upon a traditionally conservative populace; she herself was on the front lines opposing it in 1989. But when she talks about the Cold War legacy, she inverts the usual formula: It was the West, not the East, whose development went off track. Even under communist subjugation, she tells me, East Germans knew who they were: 1989 was a “Christian and conservative revolt,” she says, “not a leftist one.” But West Germans, by virtue of their Cold War alliance with the West, came to embrace an identity that was not their own. No longer identifying with Mitteleuropa, they rebranded themselves as Westerners, full stop—and became cut off from their roots and their kinsmen.

Newly discovered, Just Thomism, largely philosophical. These two caught my eye: on Knowledge, and on what is cognition: Levels of being as effecting unity.

The Orthosphere starts the week with what makes for a durable party line. On the duty and rewards of leaving the beaten path: Through a Cockeyed Gate.

PA Blog on the cognitive dissonance of the Millennials. Also, a quick word on Generation X. Good Night Left Side, on a recent violent assault in Wrocław, with the following ideological distinction:

the Right is aligned with Truth, the Left with Power. Another way of saying this is that the right serves Christ and the left Satan. This is the irreducible ideological distinction.

William Briggs with This Week In Doom: So Long, Whites Edition. When Leftists say they must be ‘Lincolnesque’, I assume they mean the solution requires the death of whites in the hundreds of thousands. But let’s check the source (Kevin Drum at Mother Jones):

“Reactionary American whites, as always, won’t give up their power unless it’s taken from them by either a literal or figurative war. Liberals need to be as Lincolnesque¹ as possible in this endeavor—we don’t have to win the votes of unrepentent bigots, just the fretful fence-sitters—but we also need to be Lincolnesque² in our commitment to winning the Trump-inspired race war we’re now in the middle of.

 

¹That is, with malice toward none and charity for all.

 

²That is, with an iron determination to win.

 

UPDATE: I’ve made a couple of very slight wording changes to the last paragraph, just to make it absolutely clear what I mean here.”

Civil War II it is. VDH has similar concerns: Can’t We All Just Get Along? Audacious Epigone has a solution: End the Hate, Separate, and a follow-up: Answering objections to dissolution. Where the progressives in North America are today reminds me of this gem from Type O Negative (remember, this was a mocking parody, although I don’t think Mr. Steele knew he’d be mocking BLM; Poe’s law in action):

Maybe saying something like: “This is who we are and this is how we live, because it is the way we want it.” Now, doesn’t that beat grovelling any day of the week? His thoughts on what comes next from the Left, and what to do about it. An excellent essay on modern alienation: Alienation and Its Discontents. Z Man also reviews the latest in political theater, this week’s Mueller hearing. His weekly Z Blog Power Hour, the 100th episode, this week, a world tour of current events. Are we entering the Age of Anti-Knowledge? Probably, as reality does not care how one feels about it. We need a new elite, because:

The current elites are rotten to the core. They are irredeemable. There’s no talking them out of their corruption or appealing to their humanity, at least not until they are on the gallows. These are people who now define themselves in opposition to that which makes nations possible and makes a people possible. For the people of the West to regain their sense of self, to make countries into homelands again, it means replacing the current elites.

Razib Khan looks at the genetic basis for Hungarian nationalism. Also, on the Passport Class:

At some point, the passport holders need to put neoclassical economic textbooks to the side and accept that there are non-economic variables which generate social cohesion and positive externalities, which allow for prosperity. And the acidic impact of globalization is eroding those factors across the developed world, resulting in the rise of populism.

Also, Razib has a post examining Privilege, another on how social status undermines White privilege. Razib considers himself conservative and his ideas are more mainstream, but he also treats the ideology of the progressives very skeptically.

Titania McGrath, again taking us to that place where laughter becomes a sinking feeling:

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 06/30/19

Housekeeping: This week is short due to my being out of coverage for the next several days. There will be no Cantandum for next week. I should get a blog roll started so folks can head to the primary sources during such gaps.

You know, finding nice smoking girl pictures is hard. But it’s way easier using DuckDuckGo. I wonder why…

I missed several posts on Alf’s Garden of the Internet. He discusses creating a new religion: Getting Into Gnon’s Favour. What the Alt Right label means and on intellectuals: Not your typical intellectual. A hard look at economic purchasing power. How the left can’t ‘Cool’, and we can.

William Briggs begins the week with the ongoing translation of Aquinas’ Summa Contra Gentiles. This week’s Summary Against Modern Thought: Celestial Bodies Do Not Control Our Bodies. On sphere eversion and free will. This Week in Doom: Lavender Mafia Edition. Guest writer Ianto Watt on Your Most Important Choice: about religion and faith. A taste:

An article from Commentary about the real Sweden. It’s a bit neoliberal cringey, but is a good starting point for understanding the reality of modern Sweden.

Z Man starts the week with ideas on effective Right Wing Activism. Our Interregnum, on how multiculturalism and a mechanistic view of our nations is failing:

It turns out that human society is nothing like a watch and the people in it are not simply automata that can be tinkered with as necessary. Human society is the expression of the shared reality of the people. That shared reality is the result of actions, experiences and mating decisions made by their ancestors. Who they are is what they are. The Frenchman is French, because his ancestors were French, not because the map maker said he was born in France. The nation is the manifestation of this reality.

Z Man also has a post on the Left’s control over moral discourse and the Right’s failure to adapt: The Incoherent Right. On the High Cost of Low Trust, or what happens when your political system encourages sociopaths. The Democratic Party debates have begun, and so The Gaslights Are Lit.

Jim on the coming holy war: The Faith. Alf calls it Jimism.

Zero Anthropology on the power and the glory of the Google Book project.

Steve Sailer on the latest justification for ‘Diversity is Our Strength’: it’s our punishment. Also, classical music must die! Which is, in progressivespeak, to say that it must be killed, as the inherent whiteness of classical music is (insert sound of sucking wind through teeth here) problematic. Well, we can’t help it that we see glory and greatness in our existence and think it is worth preserving.

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 06/23/19

Tomorrow Belongs to MeSome housekeeping: I’m on the road again next week, so next week’s Cantandum will be short, with no Cantandum the following week. This week’s picture theme is the places that Globohomo cannot reach and I’ll be taking a break in one of them.

The Problem:

Liberalism’s real political problem is that a liberal practice is only possible as long as certain traditional stocks of habits and deeply ingrained morals still exist to help society overcome its difficulties. In a nutshell: six conservative centuries enable two generations to be liberal without causing mischief. But once those stocks are consumed in permissive society, the best-intentioned liberal slogans become lit fuses.

Armin Mohler, Gegen die Liberalen

I sense we’re starting to hit the end of our conservative stores. This, courtesy of Spandrell (How Far Is Far Enough), from an excellent anonymous essay translated from German over at Kynosarges blog: Full Speed Into the Void. Another taste:

Concerning awareness of the situation, as initially discussed right-wing populists view immigration and issues with foreign residents as practical problems to be dealt with by practical solutions (executive, legislative). They do not, or not sufficiently, appreciate that the chain of problems starting with criminal foreigners and Islamic dominance behavior goes much deeper. Awareness begins perhaps with migrant crime, Islamic occupation of public spaces, and inadequate border protection, extending in the best case to addressing the Great Replacement (under various terms). The more gifted among them remember that the political left and the 1968 movement have played a central role, which often contributes to narrowing their analysis. Unaddressed remain for example the (liberalist) industry, always craving undiminished immigration which it relies on under liberal premises, or the pervasive lack of strong gender identities as a consequence (and not as a facet of Sunday speeches). Almost nobody in these circles goes as far as to conceive of liberalism itself as a political problem because individualism, egalitarianism, and universalism dissolve our identities.

Z Man has a response to this, highlighting the different circumstances and problems the dissident right faces.

Soph has a new video on Greta Thunberg, Climate ChangeTM warrior. It gets taken down in short order by YouTube. A mirror is here. Another mirror is also here.

Steve Sailer with what, for a Canadian, is the strangest French versus English problem we’ve seen. He notes some comments on girl troubles. Kamila Harris’ provides an example of zero self awareness, or letting the cat out of the bag. Steve has an article on Immigration As Vengeance. In Toronto, the wokest city discovers the strength of diversity after the Raptors’ NBA Championship Win. Faith Goldy notes Toronto’s increasing strength as well.

Speaking of Diversity’s strength, Québec becomes the basest province in Canada. To me, Canada only functions as a Confederation when the provinces remember they were originally a group of colonies that came together in common cause, and whose duty is in part to protect the interests of their citizens from overreaching federal power. When Canada was first formed, it was intended that Ottawa would handle the trans-provincial and international stuff, and everything that impacted most people’s daily lives would be handled by the provinces. Now, the federal government is enmeshed in the average Canadian’s daily life to an extent never contemplated by our founders. Québec is the only province that seems to remember what its relationship to Ottawa was actually supposed to be. The other provinces should follow suit. In case you are repelled by this idea due to a distaste for Québec separatism, you do not get what you do not ask for, and Québec has no problem asking, in necessary terms. There is no fault in requiring Ottawa to adhere to the Constitution and making it clear Confederation is in peril when Ottawa chooses not to. You’ll be seeing more of this from out west soon, because Ottawa currently thinks it gets to treat provinces like colonies. Ottawa needs a swift and severe correction to its attitude.

The reason why the conservatives work within the perimeters of liberalism in order to effect change rather than attack liberalism itself is because the modern conservatives are not Burkean conservatives. It was Burke’s contention that prior to the French Revolution, “The nations of Europe have had the very same Christian religion, agreeing in the fundamental parts, varying a little in the ceremonies and in the subordinate doctrines.” Because the nations of Europe were Christian and the Jacobins were opposed to Christianity, Burke maintained that Christian Britain and the rest of the European nations could not, without betraying the moral essence of their nations, make peace with the Jacobin government whether Robespierre or the Directory was in charge of it. But the nations of Europe did make peace with the Jacobins, and we, the European people, have been paying the consequences of that ‘peace’ for centuries, in small dribs and drabs at first, but now, in the 21st century, we are paying the price with our blood.

If there is to be a coherent political and social movement rise out of the dissident right, it will have to be more than narrow political arguments and meta-political commentary on social media. It will need a look that signals to the curious that it is a movement with a future for itself and its adherents. Just as men in traditional suits signaled a break from the 1970’s and the radical chic of the New Left, the new aesthetic will have to signal a break from the old political paradigm and the old Progressive morality.

Is the love of money the root of all evil? Yes, according to Mr. Briggs. I agree somewhat. Getting someone to agree to something for which, if they had understood the truth and the consequences, they would never agree to, is a big root of all evil.

“This is just the beginning—of the climate crisis, and the political unravelings that will continue to accompany it. And so, it is time to shout, and loudly, that the freedom of all the earth’s people to move across borders must be at the center of any response to the climate crisis. Unless we do, racism and fear—hidden as always in the guise of “security”—will give way to fascism and war before the tides get a chance to drown us.”

Ben Erenreich, here.

I think it’s safe to say that Climate ChangeTM is now dogma used for political control. The only thing that has changed is the temerity of those preaching it.

A bit late, but here is an article on Victor Orban and his handling of Hungary and the refugee crisis in Europe: Hungary and the Future of Europe. A taste:

“Hungary must protect its ethnic and cultural composition,” he said at Kötcse (which more or less rhymes with butcher). “I am convinced that Hungary has the right—and every nation has the right—to say that it does not want its country to change.” France and Britain had been perfectly within their prerogatives to admit millions of immigrants from the former Third World. Germany was entitled to welcome as many Turks as it liked. “I think they had a right to make this decision,” Orbán said. “We have a duty to look at where this has taken them.” He did not care to repeat the experiment.

American Sun with an analysis of how progressives use disadvantaged groups in contradictory ways to suit their cause: Schrodinger’s Blacks. I’d bet we see a similar trend within twenty years or so with feminism. Feminists (or faux feminist politicians looking for votes) will say that women were oppressed by the Patriarchy when they were forced to stop being mothers and enter the labour force during ‘Women’s Liberation’. By being turned into ‘sex slaves’ for mens desires during the ‘Sexual Revolution’. By being offered better birth control and abortion so men could avoid their responsibilities. And they will argue that we knew better, given the unhappiness reported and drug and anti-depressant usage by women that followed, but kept on doing it anyway, largely driven by corporations and governments run by men. They’ll loudly proclaim that women should be free to be housewives and raise their children, and of course, to have a man support them. It will be the 11th wave of feminism. And they won’t even detect the irony as they go full circle, claiming the past’s hard won ‘victories’ are today’s oppressions.

Móðir og Barn. Alvöru Sigur.

The issue of how men and women interelate in society and share power is at least as old as…men and women. What we have these days is an exacerbated version of that friction. Its practitioners aren’t really interested in resolving conflicts or problems, but more on what angle they can use to maximize votes, clicks, adherents or whatever they’re looking for. The natural tension never goes away, and so it is a boundless well to get men and women agitating against each other.

In the future, no one will have agency, unless you need them hated. Rant over…

I’m likely incommunicado for the long weekend, so this week’s post will be shorter. I’ll catch up next week. Let me know in the comments if links are broken.

Anti Gnostic summarizes my mood lately in The Very Slowly Falling Building:

One day, Orthodox ecclesiology will reflect the facts on the ground. One day, the United States’ socio-political contradictions will be resolved. In the meantime, we wait for things to work themselves out in our very slowly falling building.

Also, check out his Reactionary Tax Code. I spent a few years as a tax lawyer and I agree, although I don’t agree tax lawyers should all lose their jobs and live on UBI. If you want to automate the tax system…force them to learn to code.

Wrath of Gnon with Kunstler’s thoughts on Chronological Connectivity.

PA Blog also provides an interesting comment on the Heartiste situation.

VDH shows us there really is nothing new under the sun, drawing parallels between Rome and the American Empire: Our Modern Satyricon. He also takes media reporting down a peg…or eight:

They espouse opinions on nearly everything while knowing almost nothing. They believe Washington and New York are the centers of the universe, while the universe is making both more irrelevant. As their ethics dissipated, their vocabularies shrank. Their poor communication skills grew ever poorer, and they displayed little knowledge of the history and culture of the people they reported on. Most could give an in-depth lecture on Botox, but are ignorant about the U.S. Constitution or basic facts of American history.

The people finally are tiring of their bias, their incompetence and their arrogance—and are finally beginning to ignore most of what they say and write.

Amen. Z Man opines on a similar issue: our expectations are too high, and if we knew more history, we’d know they’ve always been this way…they just have way more access to the audience.

For Canuckistanis, Faith Goldy has an interesting look into tactics used to dox donors to her campaign for Mayor of Toronto last year. Canada, these are the people running your country.

I don’t understand the United States of America as much as I’d like. But I can see from my perch in Alberta that a cultural divide is causing a tonne of friction, and this is playing out in the articles linked above. The primary way in which these cultures are fighting it out is through that very media, although it’s spilling over into actions, which include the hoaxes, but may also get more violent over time.

I’m relying on my limited sense of how things unfolded in the transition from Weimar Republic to Third Reich. But without the technology to record and disseminate what actually happens in these hoaxes, any one of the hoax situations above is a potential Reichstag Fire for the Progressive Left. Indeed, the Left in the US seems to be LOOKING for its Reichstag Fire: confirmation that its twisted narrative can be confirmed by manufacturing reality around an event. If that’s true, will YouTube, the Tweets, blogging and instant posting of video footage be enough to stop it? I hope so.

(You may argue that those events are also potential Reichstag fires for the right as well. Notice any any attempts by the right to reduce the US to totalitarianism as a result of those events? No, I didn’t think so. Notice any by the left? Uh-huh.)

Part 2 of the American Sun analysis of the Smirk Seen Round the World:

Slavov Zizek offers a fresher perspective, unlike the usual lazy responses produced by Conservatism™ media people and the “Intellectual” Dark Web liberals. He states that this is not some conspiracy by post-modernists and Marxists to subvert western society. Instead this widely enforced cultural orthodoxy is enforced by liberalism, it is liberalism’s last attempt to legitimize the flattening of all cultures. There is (in actuality) a sophisticated patronization and control of minority subaltern groups by liberalism. It is the dream of a global liberal order that smashed cultures together, destroyed cultural identities among diverse people, and flattened the diverse cultural norms of societies to begin with. In the current politically correct regime, it is not the celebration of difference, but rather a celebration of homogenization in modern liberal societies.

Also from American Sun, threats to the American Empire.  Double quote this week, with the following from Penance as Social Technology:

One of the great benefits the culture of penance provided was protection against destructive status seeking.  In Neo-Reactionary thinking, this is most frequently discussed in terms of “holiness spirals,” which is actually a specific case of a more general phenomenon: a characteristic of Modernity is individuals pursuing religious ideas, religious feelings, and religious beliefs based on their own personal reactions and experience.  Each seeks to outdo the others, asking “am I not also a prophet?”

ygreck-cartoon

A controversial but apt description of goings on last week in Canada.

In Canuckistan, the Wilson-Raybould / SNC Lavalin scandal blew up. If former Justice Minister Ms. Wilson-Raybould’s testimony is correct, the Liberals engaged in backroom arm twisting to help SNC Lavalin avoid criminal charges of bribing foreign officials, including paying for escorts for Muammar Gaddafi‘s son while in Canada.

Prime Minister Trudeau allegedly pressured Canada’s then Minister of Justice to enter into a Deferred Prosecution Agreement (DPA) which would see SNC Lavalin avoid criminal charges. She said “no”, and Trudeau, his Cabinet, his staff, and the Clerk of Canada’s Privy Council, ever the raging feminists, thought she meant “try harder”.

Trudeau now actually appears to be nothing more than a cynic, using sunny progressive ways to obtain power, and his staff and government are starting to look like thugs and bullies. Nothing new from the left, and especially from a Prime Minister who loves Castro, and who expressed admiration for China’s dictatorship. Although, Trudeau is also very weak and it’s possible lobbyists for SNC Lavalin simply exploited him. (Something about Occam’s razor and not attributing to malice what is simply stupidity.)

Stefan Molyneaux has a very long but excellent summary here. The only thing I can offer is that this is politics. Canadians may not want to admit it, but I’m sure such political dealings go on all the time. Justin Trudeau held himself out as transparent, woke and progressive, but turned out to be none of those things, playing the very games he accused others of. What is galling is perhaps not that he engaged in these kinds of politics, but that he did it for little to no gain, while throwing his former Justice Minister, his chief advisor, and all his sacred principles, under the bus. His style of leadership reminds me of a toddler in a high chair throwing everything on the ground when he does not get his way. Those of us who were not infected by the latest iteration of Trudeaumania saw this right out of the gate in [The Current Year].

After watching Jody’s testimony, I think she is being sincere. Further, I think she knew early on that the efforts by the Prime Minister to keep SNC Lavalin from prosecution for bribing Libyan officials was not going to end until a DPA was done. I trust her when she says she kept records of all conversations: she is a lawyer and keeping copious records (especially when your client is likely to ignore you and do something illegal) is an inherent self-preservation mechanism.

The Prime Minister’s response was surprising. (Here’s a partisan review of his body language, good for a laugh.) He looks like a guilty little boy with his hand caught in the cookie jar. He’s in trouble and he knows it. It’s nice to see him squirm when all his life he seems to have never had to suffer the consequences of his actions. I watched his father commit economic rapine against my province in the early 1980s. I now see Justin trying the same thing: wreck the livelihoods of millions of Albertans to get some votes in Central Canada (and this time, the Left Coast). Trudeau delenda est.
