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 12/15/19

Polish Memorial, Alberta Legislature

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

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.

Favourite Periscope of the week: Thursday’s. It’s a daily thing and you should have them in your feed.

The Myth of the 20th Century podcast is on the Konami video game franchise Metal Gear.

A look at the reasons for the decline of rural America, with a visit to Imogene, Iowa.

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.

Occidental Dissent with a brief history of Lutheran Orthodoxy. The traditional town run by Catholics: St. Mary’s, Kansas. A look at changes to modern conservatism in the age of Trump, and now Boris Johnson.

Steve Sailer on white privilege…to be beaten at the back of the bus.

Guillaume Durocher presents a translation of a quick article on the Great Replacement in Belgium by immigration.

Cambria Will Not Yield begins a three-part series of remembrance for Christopher Grey.

Just Thomism considers what love and belonging to another means.

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.

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.

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).

Bonilla Point, Vancouver Island

If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road. …I think if you look at the present state of the world, it is pretty plain that humanity has been making some big mistakes. We are on the wrong road. And if that is so, we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on.

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

American Sun starts us off with an essay on Trump’s attempts to route around the Deep State, how they are similar to Nixon’s efforts to do the same, and how this has resulted in the same countermeasure: impeachment. The best defense is a good offense: Self Defense Against Clown World Part II. Bad Billy Pratt guests, on the new Disney Star Wars streaming series The Mandalorian. Where he went with this was unexpected: Somebody Elses Yoda. The Antigroyper guests with a short history of the Groyper meme. Earl Shetland continues the series Serial Experiments Cybernetics Layer 07: Bogdanoff. Mr. Landry describes his experiences in helping opiod addicts in his community, a must read, and gives 10 articles in a special Ten Friday Reads (no Five Friday Reads next week.)

Bronze Age Pervert’s weekly podcast is on how you are being poisoned. LTWT. Bodhi Bronson of American Sun posts a review of BAP’s 11th podcast episode here.

A short history of Xi Jinping and why he attacks China’s ‘historical nihilists’, at Scholar’s Stage.

RottenChestnuts makes a troubling and apt comparison of the current political showdown in the USA to this scene from Apocalypse Now:

The scene could very well take place on either the Democrat or Republican side.

By way of Isegoria, violent behaviour is actually rare, and usually shows up when people are confused and/or helpless. A radical proposal to bring back child labour, which is an excellent way to protect them from an “education”.

Murdoch Murdoch announces Ask Me Anything 3 and is taking questions on YouTube:

The Orthosphere compares Jose Ortega y Gasset and Gabriel Marcel on the concept of the Mass Man.

PA Blog looks at an Andrew Anglin article on the seven options in the neoliberal sexual marketplace for young men. The root article, We Are All Incels Now, with general advice for young men is also worth an RTWT, here at Daily Stormer. Also, on the magical age of 27, and the strange sacrifices the music industry makes of its stars.

Throne, Altar, Liberty says “thanks, no thanks” to actor Michael Moriarty’s reasonable response to Don Cherry’s firing: Canada must join the United States of America. Besides the ftw factor, Gerry accurately surmises that the more we become the US the more leftward we drift. Besides, we’re already a vassal state, and that’s more than enough. He also discusses Chick-fil-a, woke capitalism, and how business is not (and was not really ever) a friend of the Right.

Malcolm with poetry on inductive reasoning, and political correctness as an attempt to kill it (selectively). Bowie asked if there was life on Mars, and an article on claims there was and is.

Morgoth’s Review hate reads the Guardian, who is in love with IKEA’s new advert shaming people into buying things they don’t need spreading Christmas joy.

I note in the original ad that the characters don’t actually fix what is wrong in their house or their lives, but just use stuff they buy at IKEA to cover it up. That’s an excellent metaphor for our times. He also continues his series on the archetypes of the Left, this time on the Abomination:

The Myth of the 20th Century crew has a podcast on the highly innovative Bell Labs, where among many things, microwave antenna design testing led to the confirmation of Cosmic Microwave Background radiation.

GA Blog has a great post on Languaging Practices, which put simply is how language use applies to culture.

Z Man discusses possible motivations and goals for the ongoing Ukraine impeachment thing. He looks at the intolerance of progressives as tactics in a War on Reasonableness. The tide is going out on Conservatism, leaving many of its cucks naked on the beach. He has blackpills on healthcare (Feeling like a managerialized meat stick used to milk insurers? Talk to your medical service distribution node today about whether BlackpillsTM are right for you. Side effects may include doxing, cancel culture, and crimethought.) This week’s Z Blog Power Hour podcast is of the highest calibre, on marketism, or the tendency to attribute value to things only in respect of how they increase economic value or activity.

Prime Minister Trudeau announces his new cabinet:

Evolutionist X reviews Why Warriors Lie Down and Die, which describes the impact of the welfare state on the Yolngu people of Australia. Their experience no doubt relates to the general malaise found in the West. This is something I’ve pondered for a while. My fellow Canucks, go look at a local First Nations reserve. It is very close to the experience of the Yolngu. You may avoid it, but your kids are going to be living in the same conditions. The federal government’s disdain, paternalism, neglect, and barely disguised chauvinism against First Nations is now present at all levels of government, and being extended to all people in Canada who are not part of the ruling elite. This will accelerate as Le Dauphin’s reign continues. Ms. X also considers the Urge:

Man in his natural state, upon reaching adulthood, is struck with the urge: the urge to travel, to struggle, to conquer, and ultimately triumph (or die trying).

Migration is a goal of the young.

To be young is to struggle: against nature, against society, against himself, against the elements, against hunger, against failure.

… …

Modern man, in modern cities, is deprived of struggle. The land is already cleared. The houses are already built. The food arrives pre-killed in the grocery store. The map has already been drawn and your GPS tells you where to go.

We have made ourselves a paradise and find it wanting.

An article on how social media is driving divisiveness in our societies, over at the Atlantic.

Throne and Altar on gratitude to “real” Americans, being the descendants of those around the time of the Constitutional Convention: Honor Among Fake Americans. Also, status and democracy as rule by the media: The Trouble With an Aristocracy of Virtue.

Counter Currents has a review of the film The Lighthouse, which appears to have the creep factor in spades. On England’s pagan roots. On conspiracy theories, their safe use, and their use as distraction. A history of the ‘Paid Piper’ of Conservatism Inc., Charlie Kirk. They look at Venice, recently flooded, by seemingly vengeful waters, and by African ‘immigrants’. They ask if the good times has ended, as demographic replacement continues. Why does Detroit decline while Minneapolis thrives? Severinus has your answer here.

Daughter of Albion looks at the what is reducing the birth rate for Europeans, given that over 90% of women in Europe want two or more children:

Anatoly Karlin on what intelligence experts think about various topics, including who is the best source for new on intelligence (Steve Sailer!).

Patriactionary on the latest trend in corporate service shysters – DIE: Diversity, Inclusion, Equity. (Steve Sailer noticed this too. When I read his article, I thought it was parody.) He notes that Chick-fil-a has stopped donating money to organizations criticized by LGBTQ groups. Veterans of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army have formed a new association in Ontario.

Vanishing American II quotes Carlyle on the immutability of the laws of nature. He also posts on the generational rift between the Boomers and…everyone else, and how it is misplaced, divisive, and not based on facts.

Lone Lake, Waterton National Park, Alberta, Canada (Before the 2017 fires).

William Briggs, Statistician to the Stars, begins the week with his ongoing translation of the Summa Contra Gentiles: Summary Against Modern Thought – How Psychics and Witches Really Work. The Current Pope creates a new category of Ecocidal Sin. Those who disagree are the embodiment of Satan Hitler on Earth. The must read review of the must read book Bronze Age Mindset. Go RTWT, right now. I’ll wait… He discusses what ‘randomization’ is in experiments, and when it is useful. Ianto Watt guests, and continues his series on Clovis and his Anti-Arian army. It’s on the work of Bartholomew and Francis to reunify the Church, and not for good reasons. So much doom, so little room: A Special Pre Doom Friday: Bloated Tranny Edition, followed up by This Week In Doom: Chick-fil-a’s Cuck-a-Doodle-Do Edition.

Just Thomism on why only humans are moral. A look at the resurrection of Christ, and what difference it makes in your life.

This week’s Radio Derb podcast discusses among many other things, Mrs. Bill de Blasio, wife of NYC’s mayor, and her bang-up job spending a billion dollars on…stuff. A partial transcript is here. It is also available on YouTube:

Steve Sailer on Bloomberg apologizing for reducing murders in NYC. On the madness at the ACLU, or perhaps, the Ministry of Truth. Some historic news on the genetic disease fighting front. His weekly Taki’s Mag column is on the film Ford versus Ferrari. It’s another story about white dudes, so I’m sure it will flop. The NYT has updated the DIE (Diversity, Inclusion, Equity) acronym to the much more appropriate DEI. It’s good to know who the new god is. There was a coup in Bolivia? At least Steve and Tulsi noticed. He also talks about Sacha Baron Cohen’s recent ADL speech on the need fof censorship, and how this is consistent with his other characters. Speaking of famous Kazakhs, how the Cossacks culturally appropriated from the Kazakhs. Iraqi Defence Minister gets busted for welfare fraud in Sweden: diversity is our strength is a long con. He posts on something I’ve been considering for a while: what happens when all those children being ‘transitioned’ now sue their parents, the state, and all those medical professionals whose prescriptions and surgeries ruined and mutilated them. Steve sees this as a golden opportunity. For my part, it looks like an excellent pro bono opportunity, claiming disbursements only. A bit of satire: no biological basis for the family.

Council of European Canadians on Apocalyptic Environmental Fantasies, and their use as justification for progressive policies which are otherwise madness.

Audacious Epigone on the IQ of white folks by state. The leader is the District of Columbia. Who would’ve thought. The comment of the week is on politics, and how there is no political discussion going on anymore.

Titania McGrath reviews the latest Charlie’s Angels reboot:

Al fin on no trust in or for China. He has a look at the costs of Green Energy, and how the more of it in your jurisdiction, the more you pay for electricity. AI in psychiatry is becoming a thing. Blackpills, on demographics, living conditions, plus other miscellany. He notes that Sweden is now cutting back on services and support for seniors. Those must be the gangs Denmark is trying to keep out. Who else would it be?

RottenChestnuts on how the Left ended up loving the ‘spooks’, and why they are stuck there now.

Cambria Will Not Yield calls for Europeans to maintain their faith in the face of their Liberal overlords, and to reject pride in intellect and therefore reject Satan.

James True on how US politics is like professional wrestling.

Occidental Dissent looks at the WokeScience curriculum now being pushed in Washington State:

Capture

Also from Occidental Dissent, a look at accelerationism and mainstream recognition of it in a Vox article. The Whitehouse reverses policy towards the West Bank, in favour of Israel, saying Israeli settlements there are legal after all. An RT article on five reasons why corporate America goes woke. Italians appear to be amenable to some racism. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel gets indicted on corruption charges. He shares a great video on the Great Replacement:

More OD: on the American Greatness Symposium and Conservatism Inc. gets what it deserves. A Southern history lesson on Herrenvolk Democracy, looking back at a different time in US history (pre Civil War), when State sovereignty was high and State citizenship was what mattered.

Dr. Spencer discusses recent articles on how climate extremism has won the battle for hearts and minds.

Remembrance Day was early last week, and I posted separately on it. Occidental Dissent comments on Armistice Day here, asking why the hangover from the World Wars means continuing military entanglements and death. Evolutionist X discusses one potential reason why: people are intelligent but prone to mistakes, and even the dumb ones kill few; systems, on the other hand, when stupid can kill millions. Anatoly Karlin posts a translation of Egor Kholmogorov’s Russia and the Great War: Victory 100 Years Past. It’s an RTWT.

Glenn Ellmers at American Mind reminds us that we’ve been through way worse and risen above it: Stand Up and Fight!

Shylock Holmes is asked, and answers, What Exactly Do You Want? It’s from a political perspective, on what the totality of the Right wants in common, and what might achieve it.

Occidental Dissent on his personal trip through identity politics, conservatism, being a dissident, and his view on all those things coming from a Southern context. Demographics are destiny in Virginia, although its only racist when those to the right of the Overton window say it. Now, the Democrats of Virginia are taking another run at Confederate monuments in the state. He looks at the latest trend in housing, which seems to involve living in a pod so small if it was prison, it would be a sacred human rights violation. He looks at the beautiful, progressive dance between the Center-Left and the Center-Right, and the Atlantic Magazine’s hope that after Trump, everything goes back to normal. Noel Ignatiev, who did not live long enough to see his desired end to whiteness, lives on in Pete Buttigieg. Emmanuel Macron does not like Nationalism, saying it is the equivalent to war. Judging from all those terrorist attacks, and the church burnings, I think Macron has another kind of war he should be worrying about. Need an update on the wokeifying of the UK? The latest is here.

Audacious Epigone on those claiming to have no religion. He posts a map showing the average IQ for each state.

Throne and Altar considers why Pope Francis is allowing idolatry in his church. Also, an examination of the concept of Anonymous Christians, being those who are unconsciously Christian.

Just Thomism on why the human race can be evil at times.

VDH on the coming ‘1984’ election:

Like it or not, 2020 is going to be a plebiscite on an American version of Orwell’s Nineteen-Eighty-Four. One side advocates a complete transformation not just of the American present but of the past as well. The Left is quite eager to change our very vocabulary and monitor our private behavior to ensure we are not just guilty of incorrect behavior but thought as well.

The other side believes America is far better than the alternative, that it never had to be perfect to be good, and that, all and all, its flawed past is a story of a moral nation’s constant struggle for moral improvement.

One side will say, “Just give us more power and we will create heaven on earth.” The other says “Why would anyone wish to take their road to an Orwellian nightmare?” The 2020 election is that simple.

(And as a counterpoint, Z Man replies: The New Order.)

Alf at Garden of the Internet with how to work and play well with other men. He also discusses the Jews and their decision to reject Christ.

Morgoth’s Review on massive land development taking place in his part of the UK, turning green into large-scale housing and retail:

Roy Spencer on the failure of Climate ChangeTM models to reflect reality. I had no idea frost flowers could be a thing in the Deep South, but here they are.

PA Blog on Poland’s Independence Day, and what a normal country looks like. On the arc of life, when we peak early in life, and a talented young singer worth a listen.

The Orthosphere’s JMSmith on his ancestry and his personal motto: Spit no Fire, Eat no Dirt. His very good essay on Paul’s first letter to Timothy, and how contentment means not whining about your current circumstances. No really, please don’t…we are currently in the grip of such people and they are really messing things up. An essay showing Conquest’s Second Law of Politics in action, with Amnesty International as an example. On the difficulties man faces because he is a part of two worlds, the heavenly and the earthly.

Black Pigeon Speaks on political discontent and the real probability of Caesarism in the West:

Steve Sailer: “Do you ever get the impression that as our culture gets More Woke it also gets more in debt? Funny how that seems to work…“. On Einstein’s theory of General Relativity and how it toppled Rationalism. News that the Russian military wants to use genetic testing to determine where a soldier can optimally serve. On what genetics can tell us about cuckoldry over the last 500 years in Europe. Razib Khan notes it is not as high as the word on the street tells us, and is more likely in urban areas.

Jim discusses Trump’s rhetoric on Caesarism. Maybe Trump is serious, maybe not, but it sure is fun watching him troll the Left.

Anatoly Karlin is getting more active again: “Beyond Meat” is a Big Broccoli Psyops, and he taste-tests the local offering.

Vanishing American II in defense of fundamentalists.

Z Man on day two of the Mencken Conference, and why reason and facts are no longer a way for the Right to appeal to its base. He also discusses the Groyper rebellion, and how Conservative Inc.’s inability to even handle its questions is very telling. He discusses materialism, and how history will view the American Empire:

In the long scope of things, the American empire will be seen as an entirely artificial construct, built on the wreckage of Western civilization. The two great industrial wars that opened the 20th century exhausted the people spiritually. This includes the people who claimed to have saved the West. The cultural achievements of the American empire, such as they are, reflect that lack of spirit. The American empire and the culture around it is a lifeless zombie shuffling through time and space.

Speaking of such a history, he looks at theories on why societies collapse, and what they tell us about the US Empire today. This week’s Z Blog Power Hour podcast is Libertarian Bashing.

Council of European Canadians asks if the 21st Century is the worst time for men in our history.

Guillaume Durocher has some career advice for young men. It’s good advice for men of any age.

William Briggs gets the week underway with Summary Against Modern Thought: The Works of Psychics & Witches Aren’t Entirely Natural. He gives a roll call and discusses the Midway battle, the new movie version, and the cyptographers involved in the early stages of the Pacific War. Over half of Americans polled don’t like the idea that boys identifying as girls are dominating girls’ sports. You know, the fact that the prior sentence is even coherent shows how messed up the West is. He provides another example of why you should never rely on p-values. On the ongoing politicization of science: Science Pozzed – Data Equality Edition. What’s next, sending space probes to distant stars to get consent from alien species before taking pictures through telescopes? To close out: This Week In Doom – Height Dysphoria Edition. An excellent post by guest Ianto Watt, on what Clovis I, King of the Franks and pain in the ass to the Roman Empire can teach us about the political strife in the USA and across the West:

Real men never fall for this ‘evolving’ crap. They know who they are. They know who God is. And they don’t confuse the two.

RTWT.

The Myth of the 20th Century podcast discusses the Amish, who are much happier than you, English.

Radio Derb’s podcast is on the ongoing impeachment drama in the US, and on Swiss preparedness. The Swiss have decided not to include coffee as an essential emergency supply. Now we invade!

Malcolm is back. He posts that Denmark is now instituting border checks with Sweden to prevent Swedish gangs from shooting up Copenhagen. Hmm…I wonder which Swedish gangs the Guardian is referring to? The BBC feels no need to discuss such things. He also discusses Pete Buttigieg’s chances versus Trump in 2020. (Buttigieg is now the leading Dem in Iowa caucus polls.) He does a cover version of the David Bowie song Heroes.

Al fin notes the state of the US economy, and how Jamie Dimon, CEO of Chase, thinks it’s as healthy as ever. He finds a trade school where 100% of grads get jobs! On energy news in the US, with a focus on nuclear power. On how very distracted we are these days, and ways to deal with it.

Cambria Will Not Yield: Rejecting the Liberals’ Ghostly Bargain. The bargain being their offer to rid you of all sorrow if you reject God, and therefore, your humanity.

Counter-Current’s Spencer J. Quinn rediscovers an old song, with a surprising twist that gets him discussing the evolution of his views on the JQ. Do RTWT. A deeper look at the unrest in Chile and its demographic. The Katie Hill scandal: Is it empowerment? Is it the last gasp of the Patriarchy? Is it #metoo backfiring on its loudest proponents? Robert Hampton considers what’s going on. They review a Matt Tyrnhauer film on Roy Cohn, political manipulator extraordinaire. Counter Currents releases two books by Savitri Devi, a National Socialist in WWII Europe. She documents the post Allied victory de-Nazification in Gold In the Furnace, and her own arrest and prison sentence for pro-National Socialist activities in Germany after the war, in Defiance. They post a review of Alain Benoist’s Against Liberalism, a long but good one, and there is an audio version as well. A look at the persecution prosecution of John Demjanjuk, a Ukrainian and Soviet soldier in WWII, accused of being a Wafen SS member and hounded for his alleged crimes by the US, Israel, and Germany, until he died.

Setting the Record Straight on The Best Reason to Oppress the Gay.

By way of Isegoria, a look at what Liberalism meant to the founder of the Economist magazine. If that was the prevailing attitude, the ongoing trend to reduce everyone to their economic value is explained. How broadcast TV was an experience we could at least share with others, and how Netflix has deliberately broken that, now competing even with our need to sleep.

The American Sun’s Fred Watson Jr. on his switch to a keto diet. A quick look at the surprisingly long history of virtue signaling. The Polish short-film series Dekalog is discussed, and what it implies for spiritual transcendance and the rule of Law. Serial Experiments Cybernetics continues with Layer 06:KIDS. Henry Delacroix looks at next year’s initiative to repeal Proposition 13, which will increase property taxes to businesses in California.

Via Patriactionary, a Quillette article on the Luxury Belief Class, or how progressive values have become status symbols amongst the elites.

RottenChestnuts on the coming US Civil War II: It’s Inevitable? Plus, a look at how things will finally fall apart. Why do young people love socialism? Because it gives them what they are lacking most: meaning. “What rule of law?“, he asks:

The fact is, American “justice” is whatever the Left needs it to be today. Rules are just suggestions — the Constitution is a “living document,” which means it says whatever the Democrats need it to say at the moment. These are people who claim to sincerely believe that women can have penises and men can have periods; you think the phrase “shall not be infringed” means anything to them? At least Stalin and the boys had the good grace not to change the accusations right in the middle of the fucking show trial. Watching the “impeachment,” it’s clear that, like Obamacare, we have to convict Trump in order to find out what he’s guilty of.

Evolutionist X with a parody post on the sciencism behind the historical scientifism of light switches…I think.

Patriactionary discusses what it takes to create a classless society. It was not so long ago we had this. He also notes the opinion of John Zmirak, that the test for allowing new immigrants in should be purely political. His thoughts on Don Cherry speaking out about poppy wearing for Remembrance Day:

Mr. Cherry is a well-known and controversial hockey commentator in Canada. He speaks his mind, and he often strikes a cord with Canadians because he’ll say things people think but cannot speak aloud. Such as…that people should wear poppies to commemorate those who died in service of the Empire, the Monarch, and the nation. The backlash is predictable. The media lines up its commentators and enough POC to spew scripted sound bites about diversity, immigration, tolerance, crimespeak and multiculturalism. They remind me of children in grade school who, while holding their hands as high as possible and squirming in their desks, can’t wait to put their wokeness on display for show and tell. Of course, you don’t stop a holiness spiral after one turn, and so Mr. Cherry was fired on Remembrance Day for his progressive sin (via Occidental Dissent). Seeing adults act this way is repulsive.

Frank Vaughan summarizes our anger:

The fact that, ahem, over the last four-plus years, it has become acceptable in Canada to go after someone’s livelihood because they express an opinion you do not like, (or as so eloquently put by a wannapundit at the CBC, the opinion merely need be unpopular or a financial liability) is actually what is divisive in our society.

But that’s just how Remembrance Day goes down in 2019: remember those who suffered because an 85 year-old man said hurty words, and call for him to be fired, then celebrate his loss.

Cherry becomes my hero when he refuses to back down, (and appears on Tucker Carlson to boot). Throne, Altar, Liberty agrees, noting the more we react to progressives and their persecutions as Mr. Cherry did, the less likely we are to see more of it later. Council of European Canadians links to a Ressurection Europa video on the subject, noting that woke commentators at the CBC saying Cherry’s comments are backlash against the inevitable multiculturalization of Canada. Patriactionary sees Cherry’s firing in terms of shareholder classes, and you’ll never guess who holds Class ‘B’ shares? I believe those shares have a negative dividend which is paid to Class ‘Oppressed’ voting shareholders. The lesson to be learned comes from the Vancouver Sun article at the beginning of this paragraph:

Shakir Mousa, who came to Canada from Iraq roughly 30 years ago, said earlier Monday he was hurt and disgusted by Cherry’s words and worried they could ignite hatred and discrimination.


“I come from a dictatorship country,” the Montreal resident said. “There is a real appreciation for Canada and what Canada represents … I appreciate what democracy is and what liberty is and the freedom that we enjoy.”

He is inadvertently right, the country he is from is a dictatorship…a theocracy under holy progressivism. Z Man explains the phenomenon more generally:

Today, this has moved from simply not buying stuff from a business owned by a bad thinker to committing one’s life to destroying the bad thinker and anyone foolish enough to not share the same hatred. The whole woke movement is a blood lust, an effort to cause real harm to people by denying them the ability to live. Climate activism, as expressed in that essay, is about destruction. Everything the writer sees as keeping him from reaching personal fulfillment must be destroyed.

It is not a politics of self-interest, as the so-called conservative would imagine. The modern leftist is like a bear protecting her cubs. Any perceived threat is met with overwhelming aggression. You see it in the language. They conflate ideas and statements with actions. Holding a contrary opinion makes them feel unsafe, as that opinion is viewed as violence. They need safe spaces, by which they mean the removal of anything and anyone that contradicts their sense of self.

And the end of the day, Cherry could often times come off as a bully. Some folks did not like it. So what? He’s a bully on a T.V. screen, not in your face.  What he has to say would not diminish anyone with strength of character. Which is to say, he’s guaranteed to trigger the poor SJWs. Those who called for his sacking lack a spine, and their inability to deal with a differing opinion shows they are the very weakest of weak.

To close this out, Endeavour has a great video over at Bitchute on what Remembrance Day means to him, and how the controversy around Don Cherry’s firing and the larger demographic trends in Canadian society diminish it.

He looks at the withdrawal of US forces from Syria, the alleged assassination of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi which took place in spite of withdrawal, and evidence that democracy is a sham. On Ethics and Authority. The reason why depravity is tolerated is that there is now no viable authority left to rely in to repel it. The Children’s Crusade…of conservative writing. He explains why science has been overtaken by Scientific Theology, as rationalism and facts do not overcome feelings.

At The American Mind, Pablo discusses Chile’s recent bouts of civil discord, their Red October:

What is happening in Chile—our own Red October, or nearly—is important for the American audience to understand, because you are facing the same problem. This is one of the reasons, little understood in Chile, why President Donald Trump was elected. I think the similarity to Chile was precisely this: a legitimate social discontent of the majority during the Obama era, and an almost absolute disconnect between the progressive liberal agenda and the real daily needs of the people.

His thoughts on madness, comparing last century’s prohibition of alcohol to this century’s prohibition against speaking out on transsexuality: Transanity. He looks at the prescient Cardinal Richelieu and his thoughts on education being a bad thing when given to all. Medicine gets woke, and Doctors will soon be peacefully protesting climate change. I don’t recall seeing that in the hippocratic oath. He discusses the perversion of Christian doctrine to justify anything…for instance: “As a Christian, surely you don’t support taking children away from their parents when they enter the United States illegally apply for refugee status”.

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Patriactionary posted this hymn on Canada’s election day:

Hold our dominion in thy loving care;
Help us to find, O God, in thee
A lasting, rich reward,
As waiting for the Better Day,
We ever stand on guard.

The election came and went. Trudeau remains in power although in a minority government. Patriactionary’s thoughts are here. I’ve got general notes on the election for those unfamiliar with Canada’s federal elections. The lesson this election teaches us is here. Gerry T. Neil comments at Throne, Altar, Liberty. Kevin Michael Grace comments extensively over at VDare. (Thanks to Patriactionary for the link.) Lord Black of Crossharbour gives the most favourable review, saying Trudeau performed well personally, but has led Canada to the brink:

But for now, we have an unaccomplished prime minister dependent on a socialist party that has been substantially rejected (the NDP), facing a worthy but ungalvanizing Conservative leader. Trudeau has a slender mandate, proclaims that the great cause of the day is the nonsense of climate change, and two regions of the [country], Quebec and Alberta-Saskatchewan, with some reason, are hearing the secessionist murmurs.

Years ago, after the last Quebec referendum on separation (1995), John Crosbie wrote in his autobiography that if Quebec seceded from our nation, other provinces would also likely try to leave, seeing no cause to remain in a broken union. And there is no way in hell the US would or should tolerate such instability on its northern border. There were rumours President Clinton had been briefed on a US invasion of Quebec should they have gone independent. (To protect the St. Lawrence Seaway, went the reasoning.) A fractured nation which could lead to instability and tensions with the biggest military power in the world. This is what Le Dauphin’s rule has given us.

It now appears the Canadian government paid for a Wilfrid Laurier Univeristy produced guide for Muslim voters, which graded each federal political party’s leader for Wokeness and Islamophilia. Guess who got ‘Pass’ and who got ‘Fail’. No matter. Which ever you voted for, progressives won and the middle lost. Sound familiar? Speaking of which, Rex Murphy comments. We can all dream:

Canadian elections are not about the world. It is not ours to save, or (all deference to Greta the Grinch) to destroy. Canadian elections are about Canada, how to make it better, stronger, more healthful and secure for its citizens. They are — or should be — exercises where party leaders refresh our sense of Canada’s aspirations and ideals as a country, a nation.

Above all they should be about making sure the arrangement we have with ourselves — the Confederation — goes through an ever-necessary renewal, answers to contemporary challenges, and continues to secure the peaceful, prosperous and highly successful country that Canada is.

Well … a person can dream, can’t he?

Onto the summaries.

The week begins with Summary Against Modern Though: On Miracles, from William Briggs. He notes some odd things going on in the Amazon Synod and its Pact of the Catacombs For the Common Home. He looks at the decline of Christian practice. You know, it looks like restrictions based on ending ‘cultural appropriation’ are actually a form of segregation. It’s an example of many things the Left does right now (in the name of anti-bigotry) that will be used by Progressives in the distant future as proof of how bigoted and racist people were in our time. It’s like it is a killer meme that insures Progressives will always have something to point their fingers at.

More from Mr. Briggs: When Ernest Becker wrote Denial of Death, I don’t think he foresaw this lunacy. Is this article a troll? I don’t think it is. To close: This Week In Doom – Super Tranny Edition.

Folks, you do understand there is no reasoning with these people. Reason for them was left in the rear view mirror twenty years ago, and they speed to their glorious Future. Only they don’t see it’s a cliff.

This is a new civil war. A cold one, but a civil war nonetheless. Brother against brother, father against son, mothers against sanity.

What’s coming, and is now inescapable, is true tyranny. The father in this case is forced to say what is not true. If you cannot speak Truth because Truth is ruled “hate”, dark times are assured. Insanity is law, sanity is illegal.

On some of the flaws in the modern justification for abortion: The White Knight Abortionist.

Morgoth’s Review looks at the parallel paths of Oswald Spengler’s analysis of civilizations and the production of the Star Wars saga.

Occidental Dissent, starting off a very productive week, notes that Verizon is looking to sell The Huffington Post. The NYT notes the Chinese government is implementing censorship outside its own borders. That the NYT is raising this alarm is hilarious. The new motto for the MSM will be: “Democracy Dies in the Darkness…and Dammit, It Will Be OUR Darkness!” Also, the NYT admits the Deep State exists…to Drumpf Trump. Greta Thunberg gets a small blind beetle named after her. How this is flattery is beyond me. I had never heard of Orania, Northern Cape, South Africa, the Whites only community which rejects the Rainbow Nation, with more information here.  The real reason is likely that they simply don’t want the high crime levels prevalent in the rest of the nation. So racist. Don’t they know the real White Man’s Burden is to let the POC ravage them? Speaking of…multiculturalism has failed in Germany. A quick essay on the Alt-Right, the Dissident Right, and why they are on the fringes of mainstream politics. He comments on Rusty Reno’s The Return of Strong Gods, with some optimism that the weak gods of our times are waning, and strong gods will once again appear. He also gets banned by Facebook. Congratulations are in order I think.

Myth of the 20th Century has an excellent podcast this week (which hilariously goes off the rails for the first few minutes) on efforts in the 1980s and 90s to uncover the nefarious activities of ‘The Octopus’, which today we define as The Deep State.

VDH on why they hate Trump so much. To me, the political elite in the USA have a private club. Membership means a tacit agreement to follow a common course and hide the graft and corruption from the public. Trump crashed their little cabal and refused to play by their rules. They’ve been reacting like an immune system trying to get rid of an invader ever since.

Razib Khan with a specific example of how wokeness has changed the sciences.

Black Pigeon Speaks looks at Jordan Peterson, the controversy around him, and the efforts to silence him:

Steve Sailer notes the effort in Washington State to legalize affirmative action, which has turned into a fight between greivance peddlers and Asians. Why is California progressive? Answered. Are gaps in achievement tied to gaps in discipline? Steve looks at two books calling for censorship of dissenters, including Andrew Marantz’ Antisocial, which has a whole chapter dedicated to Mr. Sailer. (Counter Currents reviewed the book here. Sam Harris had Marantz on his podcast this week. Marantz could not coherently respond to Sam’s slowball-level challenges of his opinions without deflecting and strawmanning.)

Mr. Sailer also looks at a proposal to take algebra out of school curriculum, to be replaced with Data Science.

Audacious Epigone with an analysis of disdain for incels. He also gives a diagnoses of Wokeness as a civilizational autoimmune disorder.

At American Mind, Jeremy Carl reports on damage to Catalonia. Bronze Age Pervert responds to Michael Anton’s review of Bronze Age Mindset:

The problem Anton or other conservatives must face isn’t that my audience, or the “youth” in question doesn’t accept the principles of the American Founding, but that the left and thereby a large part of the establishment rejected these principles long ago. The left has been saying exactly what they plan to do for decades. They want to destroy your country, instill a death wish in the white population, set majorities against market-dominant minorities, atomize everyone: the British plan in Malaysia and a few other places but now applied domestically within a country.

Occidental Dissent’s Hunter Wallace comments on BAP’s response, and conveniently summarizes the Clairemont Institute’s obsessive responses. Curtis Yarvin, aka Moldbug, chips in at America Mind.

If your interested in a different take on climate change science, check out Dr. Roy Spencer’s website. He gets into the technical details behind the science.

Malcolm also notes BAP’s response to Michael Anton. He also looks at some weird stuff about Tulsi Gabbard’s possible religious beliefs. Malcolm also noticed that Attorney-General Barr’s Trump-Russia probe is now a criminal investigation. It’s surprising how little attention this seems to be getting. He then takes NYT to task over their spin on the investigation.

John Derbeyshire’s Radio Derb Podcast is on the Proud Boys convictions: 4 years for defending yourself. Gavin McInnes comments as well:

 

Z Man begins the week with musings on Autumn. He makes interesting commentary on fake news and how the media being propaganda arms of the Ruling Party may help dissidents. Something I’ve been considering, and Alf discusses in his book (above): replacing the Left means offering a better set of beliefs. Given how the Left is rooted in denial of reality, a set of beliefs that match reality should suffice. On Perfidious Conservatives, or those who purge the people, but keep their ideas, to shill for Liberalism. He considers the need for cultural debate on homosexuality. His Z Blog Power Hour podcast is an Autumn world tour.

The American Sun features Bad Billy Pratt, with his review, ostensibly of the Joker movie, but really, of our entire media/entertainment culture, and our participation in it. Well done, Sir Pratt, well done. The cybernetics series continues with Layer 4: McCulloch. Hank Oslo reviews The Favourite, a film about court intrigue amongst women of power in Queen Anne’s time. Five Friday Reads includes some well considered comments on Syria. Also, Mr. Landy links to a review of Joker over at Agonist which is worth a look. A taste:

In our liberal order, every experience we put a name to is very quickly abstracted away from us. Legally and politically, we redefine anything, however fundamental to society, including what marriage is or what family is, because liberal elites want the change. They may be right or wrong in any given case, but their procedure is to recreate our experience by speaking in an abstract way—instead of looking to our experiences—and then to compel us to obey a new dispensation. We are inadequate to their purposes and have to be adjusted to be worth any of that famous liberal compassion. Progress might turn out to mean liberalism can do therapy for every mutilation it inflicts.

Steve Sailer has an interesting article on English sports and how sports became standardized. The comments are worth a look as well. His Taki Magazine column looks at the movement to eliminate standardized tests for college admission. On the old and new conventional wisdoms on the causes of -isms. Wesley Yang’s comments on the recent ruling that Harvard’s anti-East Asian admissions policy to be, well just fine and dandy.

Morgoth’s Review looks at the moral hegemony of the Left and the absence of a counter-balancing power:

New to me is John Derbyshire’s Radio Derb podcast. This week he discusses the curious case of China’s crackdown on the NBA, for a franchise owner’s endorsement of the Hong Kong protests. A partial transcript is here. This week’s Derb Radio is on white folks not putting up with racists who write books about them.

Malcolm is back home. He considers an interview with Amy Wax, Law Professor, who think US culture should be dominated by people from the west. He discusses a speech by William Barr on the need for religion in American society, and the assumption it already exists by the Founding Fathers.

Counter Currents looks at the film Taxi Driver, and its protagonist, Travis Bickle as an American Hero. Fenek Solère looks at Brexit, the organized campaign to stop it, and Cultural Marxism in Europe. He mentions Extinction Rebellion. I suggest having a look at their platform. It’s not actually about climate change per se, but about imposing at least two bureaucratic orders above government to make decisions on behalf of the people. Government pays for it, but as for who decides who will run it…that’s not clear. It’s either Astroturfing nonsense or an attempt to formalize a real New World Order. Social justice is now working its ‘diversity is strength’ meme into Football (Soccer for us colonials). They offer an alternative view to the 1619 Project, looking at Wilmot Robertson’s chapter on negroes in The Dispossessed Majority.

More Counter Currents, with Warsaw Journal #2:

I do feel bad for my liberal friends during the Trump era. How much it would suck to not be allowed to enjoy Donald J. Trump! I love Trump. I rejoice in him. He’s hilariously funny. Super-sharp. Has brilliant political instincts. To be alive during his presidency is something I will always be deeply grateful for. One friend and I sometimes meet up for a meal at a local diner, and before we eat, we bow our heads and say a prayer for the God Emperor. Finally he has come – to destroy all the hypocrisy, the stupidity, the pomposity, the vanity of these thieves and jackasses who are our leaders. Oh, joy. Oh, God. Oh, thank you, President Trump, for risking your life to give us faith and hope again. Then, my friend and I recount Trump’s latest activities, laughing and guffawing over our food. He is killing it, we conclude before we calm down enough to eat.

Then, I look at my liberal friends: all sad, depressed, grinding their teeth, oblivious to the humor, the lightness of touch, refusing to be entertained. Lost in their self-righteous and childish ideas. But even more tragically: They miss the fun.

At Occidental Dissent, in light of Spielberg’s new documentary series Why We Hate, Hunter Wallace explains why in just over 100 words:

Why is there so much hate?

Why is there so much resentment about a hostile cultural elite which wants to dissolve our borders, tear down our historic monuments, rewrite our history, censor the internet, take away our guns, corrupt our political system, demoralize and degrade our people with cultural poison, transform little boys into little girls and plunge us into foreign wars which ought to be of no concern to us all while wrecking our country and enriching itself at our expense?

Why would anyone ever get mad about that? Shouldn’t an elite like that which produced Jeffrey Epstein and Harvey Weinstein still command universal support?

Also, what life was like for slaves in the Deep South. GQ magazine goes full woke. What’s the next step after that? (Steve Sailer’s take is here.) They note International Pronouns Day. Honk, honk! No surprises, as Project Veritas finds the source of CNN’s biases. A look at the reasons the South joined the American Revolution. Tony Martel looks at Kipling’s The White Man’s Burden, revealing the two-faced nature of white supremacy: White Suckerism. (I always took Kipling as explicitly mocking those who undertook the White Man’s Burden, and not that he was endorsing it. A minor disagreement: Mr. Martel’s analysis is right on the mark.) Norman Burgundy looks at the media that closed out the 20th Century.

Snark time: the first Black President endorses the first Blackface Prime Minister. Barack Obama endorses Justin Trudeau for Prime Minister! Hold on…sorry, I meant to say Obama endorses Obama Wannabe for Prime Minister.

Evolutionist X looks at three tribes of Great Plains Indians and their languages, in preparation for a further post on their legal systems. The post on their legal systems is here.

Z Man makes his way home from Scandinavia, with interesting comments on the “strength” diversity provides. He attended the Scanza Forum in Copenhagen. Millennial Woes and Frodi Midjord discuss Antifa’s attempts to disrupt the event, and the lack of police intervention. (Courtesy of Counter Currents.) Z Man asks if we are headed into a new dark age, and why. A look at the defect-defect strategy of the Left, and where it could take us. China recently flexed its muscles and the NBA balked. Z Man discusses why this happened. He’s got a grab bag for his Z Blog Power Hour podcast this week. Z Man also discusses Mexican cartels, and Sinaloa’s recent victory over Mexican law enforcement. For those booked into a resort this winter, it helps to know who is really in charge:

RETUSCHERAD

Scholar’s Stage on the poets who added phrases to the English language, and how that has faded. Think, for instance, “white man’s burden”, introduced by Kipling. He reviews Jonathan Ward’s China’s Vision of Victory, and offers his own insights into China’s foreign policy.

Council of Canadian Europeans asks why ‘white replacement’ is not mentioned in the Canadian media.

Al fin looks at why China lags behind the West, specifically in terms of scientific discovery. He then discusses the potential for a genetic explanation.

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

Antifa Pass

The Council of Canadian Europeans notes the recent tactics of Antifa on the UBC campus. This will also be in the next Cantandum, but my comments turned into a blog post.

We’re seeing a lot of this lately. It’s the same old story. Two professors tried to give a talk and Anitfa showed up to stop it. Same thing in Copenhagen recently with the Scandza forum. This business about the police not enforcing the law with respect to the Antifa, Extinction Rebellion, and the Progressive Left generally, is not going away because we complain about it. The police have allegedly been told to hold off, often with excuses about respecting freedom of peaceful assembly or expression or some made up ‘right to protest’. Civil order be dammed.

This is an example of where a valid legal interpretation makes absurd results. In Canada, such rights are protected under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. See section 2. The Charter only protects those rights against government (Canada and the provinces) or government actors (municipalities and the police, for our purposes). So, the argument goes, the police should not interfere with an Antifa or Extinction Rebellion protest because to do so breaches the Charter. However, where Antifa acts as a bunch of thugs to coerce other private actors, the Charter does not apply to protect the rights of their targets. That’s a private matter, and the only relief they can get is to ask the police to stop Antifa, which the police cannot because…Charter. This is an argument I see in the press and from protesters.

This is just wrong. First, the Charter right is for ‘peaceful’ assembly. Watch that video in Hamilton where a disabled senior citizen was blocked and called ‘Nazi scum!‘ No ‘peaceful’ happening there. It’s funny, but section 1 says the rights in the Charter are subject to “…reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society”. One would expect that the right to peacefully assemble means no unreasonable attempts to inhibit others freedom, such as blocking rush hour traffic in major cities for your Extinction Rebellion protest. (Note in the pictures that the police are protecting the protesters, as if people just trying to get to work, or their kids to school, are the real danger. Never mind those people pay the taxes that the police rely on for funding.) Parties are always happy to trot out the section 1 limitation when justifying some violation of the Charter which benefits them, but when it could work against them they just ignore it.

It might turn out that politicians realize that cracking down on this nonsense will get them votes from the Silent Majority. Or, Antifa could turn out to be the useful idiots that install the next totalitarian regimes in our nations. Or, something in between, like the Weather Underground. Regardless, other tactics are going to have to be found to prevent Antifa and others from shutting down dissident events in the immediate future. I wish I had some advice to give in that respect, other than moving underground. Feel free to complain to your local politicians and police departments of course, but don’t expect much to change.
