Cantandum in Ekhaton 09/08/19

William Briggs with this week’s Summary Against Modern Thought: On Divine Providence. Ianto Watt with Part II of All Rhodes Lead to Rome, on WINners, the Empire and world domination. A call for common cause with those who hold Reality and Tradition sacred: #UniteTheClans Dammit. RTWT. A letter from a fan and more thoughts on AI. The war between rights and reality is over, and sanity has lost. Wrapping up the week: This Week In Doom – Herstaria (Not Hysteria) Edition.

Throne, Altar, Liberty with more on the scare and hunt for Nazis in Canuckistan: Blow It Out Your Ear, Bernie!

PA Blog on how Trump is not cucking on the Wall, but making sure it has permanence.

Over at The Edge of Time, do we need traditions, and which ones?

Jim with quick thoughts on Brexit.

From Occidental Dissent, part of a continuing series on the history of the Southern United States: The Unraveling of the South. It is a quick history lesson on the rise of the American Empire and liberalism.

The Myth of the 20th Century with a Q&A podcast: it’s a lot of fun.

Wrath of Gnon I:

Scholar’s Stage on why you should not trust your arguments.

Malcolm on a deeper look at the number of people in the US in poverty. The problems with hiring POC because they are qualified and do the work, and not because they are POC. Also, a Service Notice.

Alf on How To Be A Man (amongst other men). RTWT.

Endeavour with Part III of Lies of the Elightenment: The (Free) Marketplace of Ideas.

Z Man with his thoughts on Sportsball. He considers the problems of too many administrators, on Labour Day. On dissidents and the dispossessed, how they relate to conformists, and what dissidents must do to be part of what comes after the progressive collapse. He discusses conspiracy theories and how to get your conspiracy memory holed. On democracy being a fraud, providing a very accurate description easily applied to your options in Canada’s upcoming federal election:

Instead, the parties put on a show for the voters, rarely intending to actually do what they claim. Instead, they manufacture differences between one another, so they can pretend the choice before the voters is stark. Once the election is over, the politicians go back to living their lives of leisure, waiting for instructions from the people who actually run things. The politicians are like robot actors, brought out for elections, then put back in storage.

And sorry ladies, but this week’s Z Blog Power Hour is at frequencies only men can hear: Wammin’s World.

Via ReactionaryThought, a journey into the rabbit hole where Greta Thornberg and other child political instruments dwell: I Was A Teenage Scarewolf.

Evolutionist X with an intriguing theory about how Homo Sapiens replaced Neanderthals: the clothes make the hominid.

Rotten Chestnuts on bringing back ‘Satan’ as an apt descriptor of Liberals. He finds that the Left is in touch with reality, but only a tiny science-filtered slice which has driven them mad. On Socialized Medicine. A possible way to defeat Elizabeth Warren.

Wrath of Gnon II:

Cambria Will Not Yield is not yielding. He discusses the gradual erosion of faith in Christ. Also, nothing good comes from democracy or liberalism: All Through the Night.

Al Fin on how 25% to 50% of US colleges will fail in the next 20 years…and the ways they’ve already failed.

Setting the Record Straight on the Rectification of Names: “Gays”

Counter Currents with a review of Quinn Slobodian’s Globalists – The End of Empire and the Birth of Neoliberalism. A look at Flemish nationalists, and some lessons they can teach us about dissent and organization. A visit to Lynchburg, contrasted with Charlottesville, and the life of Jerry Falwell. Apocalypse Now, Part III, on the coming hordes. On the self-immolation of the UK’s highest universities in the name of diversity. A review of the legacy of Lothrop Stoddard, who foresaw the Great Replacement. Another review, of the Mothers of Massive Resistance, which details the women who resisted the civil rights movement.

The Council of European Canadians with questions on immigration, race realism, and the Great Replacement, from almost a hundred years ago.

VDH delves into what happened with colleges in the US, where education became debt slavery: From Icon to Con.

The Orthosphere with a primer on traditionalism. A taste:

As Alain de Benoist and Charles Champetier write in their Manifesto for a European Renaissance (2012), no doubt under the dual influences of Guénon and Evola: “The destruction of the life-world for the benefit of instrumental reason, economic growth, and material development have resulted in an unprecedented impoverishment of the spirit, and the generalization of anxiety related to living in an always uncertain present, in a world deprived both of the past and the future. Thus modernity has given birth to the most empty civilization mankind has ever known.” The sirens, however, who swim in the tepid waters, and the harpies who swoop in the tepid air, know not the tepidity, nor the jejuneness, nor the de-individuating insipidity of their milieu. The Traditionalists foresaw this impasse a long time ago.

Also, The Roar of Our Cataract. I cannot summarize…but you must read it.

More Orthosphere, where we learn that the race baiters are bribing us…with sandwiches: Hark, Hark, the Dogs Do Bark!

American Sun, with comments on the carnivorous diet. What to do with the US college system, including all the student debt. A discussion of the chaos inherent in progressivism and the private spheres as a way to create structure again:

The progressives cannot construct a lasting structure. Because of their denial of history and shrinking of time horizons, they cannot tap into the eternal and the unspoken that reaches inside all humans. This is the challenge. Tapping into that which is eternal and undeniable is what is needed. To make these spaces not just exist but grow is the challenge. Once public spaces have become a garbage dump in comparison to your private spheres, the levers they control will matter less. It is not that you may be outside their reach, but that their decrees and proclamations will not matter at all.

Tactics of the Troubles continues at American Sun with Part III, American Lessons, or what the Troubles can tell us about coming civil unrest. Also, for your down time this coming week: Five Friday Reads, with a nod to the Myth of the 20th Century podcast (see above). It is as good as Mr. Landry says. Have a listen and send them Bitcoin.

Kill to Party on one hell of a downward spiral: Never Called Me Back.

Steve Sailer’s weekly column at Taki magazine discusses the memory holing of the SPLC’s (our favourite pretty hate machine) March scandals. On how getting old may not mean slowing down. He has some helpful flashlight advice.

Wrath of Gnon III:

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

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.

The Anti-Gnostic on the faith of the fathers being the faith of the sons.

James True: Apocalypse Now and kabbalah.

So many reviews this week. Alf anticipates the new Tool album. Mr. Oslo at American Sun reviews Lionel Shriver’s The Mandibles. The Zeroth Position reviews The Anti-Federalist Papers and the Constitutional Convention Debates. Over at ISI, a review of Imperial Legacies: The British Empire Around the World by Jeremy Black. Our Statistician to the Stars reviews The Idol of Our Age, by Daniel J. Mahoney. Spoiler: The Idol is us. A review of Michael Anton’s (of Flight 93 Election fame) review of Bronze Age Pervert’s Bronze Age Mindset.

The Scholar’s Stage on extremist politics. He’s espousing a good theory, but his application to the Confederacy is terribly one sided.

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.

Over at Neo-Ciceroneon Times, a historical study of the Left’s tactics through Micronationry in Geo Cities.

Sir Roger Scruton argues against Yuval Harari’s human reductionism.

At Counter Currents, what Woody Allen can teach us about anti-white resentment. Should you join the US military, whitey? The answer is complicated, and Xenophon’s experience is a guide. Part II of Apocalypse Now, relating Jean Raspail’s The Camp of the Saints (1973) to our current illegal immigration crisis. A guide on what to do for the ongoing internet purges: You(Tube) Will Not Replace Us! An essay on the Neocon’s heyday in Hollywood. On the inevitable, necessary, and moral: white identity politcs.

Evolutionist X continues her study of Legal Systems Very Different From Ours, this time on Islamic Law. Also, she looks at the future of AI generated media.

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. (Did you know that the ‘Do’ construct used in the last sentence likely came to the English language from Welsh and does not appear in almost any other languages? Same with the ‘Did’ in that sentence. 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!

This week’s photo theme is ‘What I Did on My Summer Vacation.” It’s good to be back. It’s also good to take a break, which helps clear one’s head and allow thoughts and ideas to solidify in one’s life. For instance…

Christianity beats Progressivism. Except this comparison is ridiculous. Christianity preaches that no matter what you have suffered, you are not the sum of your suffering and through faith in God and accepting Christ as your saviour, you can be gloriously redeemed and renewed and achieve the crescendo of your existence, as God intended. Progressivism says no matter what, you are the sum of what oppresses you, and can never be redeemed or renewed. Surrendering your agency to the state or to SJWs of some kind is your only option, further insuring you can never rise to your potential.

Christianity insists you act as if Heaven can be achieved here on Earth now by adjusting your attitude. Progressivism says it can never be done, so let’s make life here Hell. It is the work of Satan on Earth.

Endeavour has a video on his coming around to Reaction. MANDATORY viewing for Canadians!

Fragility: When a 75 minute flight delay means you end up laid over in Vancouver for two days, your air service is fragile. NNTaleb would probably agree. However, as Z Man points out, we could still be wrong.

Epstein is dead, allowed to hang himself in his cell in a fit of despair I’m sure. Nothing to see here. Seriously, most of the errors and omissions by the guards are not surprising. It seems inmates die like that often: no one working in a prison likely feels obligated to give a fuck about a pedophile in their custody. Counter Currents Publishing rightly states that this event will be seen as a conspiracy, no matter how innocuous the truth is. Given the timing of Epstein’s arrest a few weeks before Mueller’s testimony on Russiagate, my fanciful theory is that this was Trump’s team sending a message: you try to take me down with a fake scandal (Russiagate) and I will take one of yours out with a real scandal. They knew that all that had to happen was his arrest, and someone on the inside (connected, hired, or otherwise) would take care of the rest.

Titania McGrath

Counter Currents also has a cool guide to all things Lovecraft, plus what At the Mountains of Madness teaches us about Lovecraft’s racial views. Part I of a look at the coming Apocalypse by overpopulation.

Hear the call?

Speaking of Cthulhu, Thomas Burtonneau on The Call of Cthulhu and parallels to wokeness. (Malcolm comments and links to it here.) Plus, Hitler’s Chomsky’s take on capitalist democracy.

Dr. Spencer discusses his recent experience with back pain and surgery. For you lifters, form is everything.

Cambria Will Not Yield against rationalism.

Thorne, Altar, Liberty with an affirmation of Mencius Moldbug: the modern left came from Puritanism.

I thought museums were in the Cathedral already. But it seems there is pushback against defining them as Proggresive.

Our Statistician to the Tsars, Mr. Briggs, begins the week with the next installment in the Summa Thelogica: Summary Against Modern Thought – What It Means to Speak of Fortune. On issues of causation, racist AI, and Ezra Klein’s misunderstanding of it. No, fluoride does not make for dumb boys or smart girls. Well, it appears Satan’s work on Earth need not be secret anymore. The UK bans gender stereotypes, which should get rid of the nasty vestiges of reality in their media. A Jesuitical Jesuit’s Devil Denying Deception…’nuff said. He closes the week with This Week In Doom – Cuck-A-Doodle-Do Edition.

Z Man on Zionism in America. Also, on the civic religion of anti-racism. He discusses problems with Intelligent Design. An interesting thought experiment leads to some conclusions on Trump’s economic policies. His latest Z Blog Power Hour podcast is a late-summer mixer of topics. Z Man also has a look at policy towards Jews in medieval times.

PA Blog discusses the cracking facade of racial tolerance. He discusses transcendence by intoxication.

Myth of the 20th Century’s latest podcast is on the Skull and Bones Society.

Malcolm and how the NYT “has let slip the dogs of war!”, and follows-up on the 1619 project.

Steve Sailer shows enviropimpin’ ain’t easy, but it sure is fun. Also, you can’t make this stuff up: the hate symbols of our time, Pepe and Peppa. His weekly column in Taki magazine is on the NYT’s 1619 project, a retcon project of epic proportions. Baby Boomers were not a big deal in the 60s. It seems obvious now that he said it (good comments on this article too.)

20190804_103201

Council of European Canadians discusses consciousness arising from the masculine in the work of Camille Paglia.

VDH on the use of Social Justice as a distraction from immediate problems.

RottenChestnuts on why you should continue to fear AOC. His analysis of AOC is spot on. Malicious Ignorance is a good term for that kind of college girl, and my law school had many stellar examples. Although, I’ve known a few such women who actually were too stupid to even get into college. Further, a discussion of the causes of The Great War and application to modern times. Also, a simple explanation of how violence is not free speech just because Antifa did it.

American Sun with Part II of the tactics used in Ireland’s troubles. An essay on the works of Augusto Del Noce, dealing with his attempts to reframe thinking on modernity. Some diet advice from Superlutheran. Ending the week: Five Friday Reads.

Heartiste at Gab on Progressive envy:

Riffing off a few gabliloquies I wrote recently on the topic of the Censorial Left, an additional psychological undercurrent that motivates Woke Whites to censor, ostracize, and harass Volk Whites is pure envy and a feeling of impotent frustration.

To understand what I mean, you must accept the premise that Woke Whites (shitlibs) monitor themselves constantly. They are in a perpetual state of self-policing, fearing more than anything the social repercussions of giving air to BadViews or Crimethink. The White shitlib lives with a latent terror that he or she or xir will accidentally blurt out a Raw Feeling or an Unauthorized Opinion on matters race or sex, and suffer the consequences of a Schoolmarm Swarm. They police their thoughts almost as assiduously as they police their words, because they know secret impure thoughts are the fast track to a public Twatter suspension. Loose limbics sink tight lips. Orwell called it Crimestop.

Imagine the mental energy and emotional toll this takes on a person. We all have filters — you don’t want to kill the party by loudly asking the fat girl if she’s had enough cake — but the White shitlib amplifies this generic social politeness to a pathological degree, applying that filter to every waking thought that flits across her brain, hyper-aware of what thoughts could lead to trouble. The self-monitoring must be exhausting, and silently humiliating.

From this toxic shitlib emotional stew bubbles a seething envy of FreeWhites who freely give lebensraum to their thoughts and voice to their illicit concerns. The self-monitoring White shitllib HATES HATES HATES the liberated abandon of the Whites who aren’t imprisoned by ideological filters. The shitlib White’s envy is rocket fueled by the accompanying feeling of impotence to enjoy the same freedoms of the FreeWhites, but instead of giving herself those freedoms (which would threaten her superzip social standing, can’t have that) she aggressively works to strip away the freedoms enjoyed by the FreeWhites.

Misery loves company, and the White shitlib wants every White person as strait-jacketed by the self-monitoring as she must endure. She’d rather contribute to her society’s destruction than let you have your joy.

Speaking of that kind of envy, a young girl’s attempt to force her way into a 554 year old all-boys choir is rejected. (They also have an all-girls choir she could join. But, we know that’s not what this was about.)

Overcoming Bias on How Idealists Aid Cheaters.

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.

George Fitzhugh, The Revolutions of 1776 and 1861 Contrasted, (1863).

What was it those Cylon hybrids said? “All this has happened before and will happen again.

Endeavour is a Canadian Reactionary YouTube channel I’ve recently found. The following video is an excellent review and a great place to start for those new to Reaction. Do WTWT.

Part I is here.

Over at Setting the Record Straight, Aidan MacLear considers rape and sexual regulation. Do RTWT.

Throne, Altar, Liberty with some fiction on Lucifer’s Apocalyptic efforts: Brother Moonpie and the Devil’s Apocalypse.

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. On what is and what can be truth, and what can be acted on is veridicial. On how to deal with projecting SJWs. The origins of the phrase “tacky”, as related to horses and people, adna follow-up: the Sandhillers. Mr. Burtonneau with a post on the works of Nicolas Berdyaev.

Steve Sailer with the interesting yet not really unexpected results of the Trinidadian Marshmallow test. RTWT. His weekly column in Taki’s magazine on increasing white immigration.

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):

Mr. Briggs continues the Sunday tradition – Summary Against Modern Thought: Physics Cannot Show Our Wills Are Not Free. He also wins an Ignoble award…his acceptance speech is priceless. Bravo Sir! It looks like there will be a week long strike in September to protest greenhouse gasesclimate changeglobal warmingthe climate crisis…the climate herpes emergency! What’s the probability of a nuclear war? Our statistician has your answer. Speaking of important questions: How Can Any Religion Have a Monopoly on Truth?

A dissident right review of DOOM: Eternal. People are waking up.

Council of European Canadians on Google’s electioneering by search engine results. I’m not sure the title is correct but the article is interesting. A very simple look at the Secret of the Family Farm, or what has been lost when the traditional farm vanished. Also, does Canada commit ‘genocide’ against indigenous women? No, but they really want you to feel like Canada does.

James True with the Government is the Mafia.

Z Man with what white people need to do. 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.

The Myth of the 20th Century crew’s weekly podcast, an interview with James Lafond: Return of Champions – Fighting For Territory in the Ruins of Civilization.

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:

Something to lift your spirits (trigger warning: white people celebrating stuff white people made; encourages caring for family, women doing domestic work, disproportionate emotional labour, and self-sacrifice).

Tis the season where I’m on the road most weekends. Hence the lateness of this week’s Cantandum.

Our Statistician to the Stars, Mr. Briggs, begins the week with his Summary Against Modern Thought – the ongoing translation of Thomas Aquinas’ Summa Theologica. This week’s post is There Is a Hierarchy of Intellect. Statistics: On bad trend analysis. On the Fetus/Person divide, now delineated by ‘viability’. A very special Midweek in Doom: All Israel All the Time Edition. On the resurgence of UFOs. A bit startling: on the Post-Approval efficacy of pharmaceuticals. A particulalrly apocalyptic This Week in Doom – Pope Reaches Out to Furries Edition.

The French Senate pushes to have Notre Dame restored to its original state, over Macron’s attempts to create something modern. Progressives around the world really do live in a bubble.

Does Global WarmingTM cause more tornados? Probably not, according to Dr. Spencer.

12 Obsolete Manly Activities and What You Can Replace Them With, from The Babylon Bee. I’m gonna be a Chadish Oppresive Patriarchal Shitlord and order you to RTWT.

PA Blog on revisiting old 80s movies. He’s right, they were much better times. And it’s true: Gen X was raised with an impending sense of doom. The Cold War ended and took nuclear fears with it…but it did not take away the sense that we were playing with fundamental forces we did not understand. Those forces turned out to be innate characteristics of humans themselves. After almost 30 years of unrestrained progressive ignorance and manipulation, that fear was correct.

Via Clarissa, MLK gets #metoo’d. Somehow it’s news he was an adulterer and had unsavoury proclivities. The author of the original article (here) had been writing about this since the eighties, if memory serves. It only becomes a hot issue now because it can be used to virtue signal. I remember about ten years ago CBC radio broadcast many MLK speeches praising the man. How times change.

The Orthosphere with the origins of “like it or lump it”, and “hunker down”, and its echoes in Stoicism. On the Music of E.J. Moeran. A great essay on T. Lothrop Stoddard and his works, particularly on the Haitian Revolution and parallels with our current social upheavals. Maybe it’s the Sea Peoples, the Atlanteans, later day Roman’s, or it could be us: Mr. Bertonneau discusses Life Among the Ruins. Richard Cocks with an in-depth look at Social Justice. Well worth an RTWT.

Anatoly Karlin on Bioleninism and its uses in the 21st Century. Spandrell replies: RTWT.

Jim on eating. Lots of good stuff in there. And he’s right, diet soda makes you fat. I don’t know why either, but my anechdata agrees.

Z Man starts the week with a discussion on the fallout from Russiagate. He’s noted an interesting lesson about ruling that the Clintons have taught us. Further, the price of prosperity and confusing it with economic activity. His thoughts on politics repeating the past, for the following reasons:

That’s probably the single biggest cultural problem facing America today. The Baby Boom generation is not going to age gracefully. Instead of picking which one of their kids will take their keys away, they will keep a white-knuckled grip on the wheel until the country goes over the cliff. Nancy Pelosi should be in a rest home right now. Instead she wanders around the capital in her bathrobe and slippers, the third most powerful person in the Imperial government, unable to remember her own name.


That’s where we are now. America is a country ruled by cucks who are afraid of the future, so they rummage around in the past. They’re like children putting on shows for their parents, wearing their clothes and singing their songs. It’s all echoes of the past and cucking to current fads. It is an entirely useless ruling elite that will have to be wiped away, before we can face the future. Barring an asteroid strike and societal collapse, it means waiting for the great Baby Boomer die off to clear the path forward.

He also discusses the recent EU elections as a demonstration of why winning the Little Fights is how change has to take place. And he mentions doughnuts…mmm doughnuts. A piece on what Whitey wants, and what Whitey is wise to. His weekly Z Blog Power Hour podcast, on the EU elections. His thoughts on where the relationship between Americans and there rulers is headed.

GA Blog on Market Capillarism.

The Ensign Hour podcast, on how Ottawa is going to save us from online misinformation.

The Ensign Hour crew mentioned Disgruntled Leaf Network, a YouTuber who has been steadily putting out videos for a couple of years. They’ve got interesting material. I advise the following for a taste: Of Maenads and Men.

Malcolm on America…not just a Proposition Nation. Related, Anti-Gnostic on Remembrance Day. Quick thoughts on political happenings in Europe. Malcolm also notes Mueller’s tactics, akin to Scots Law, to smear Trump, and the very differing perspectives on the matter: Rashomon.

An article from City Journal on the decline of Christianity in the West (i.e The Decline of the West). This is something I am seeing more of: the idea that as Christianity has declined, so has the West. Reactionary says: ‘duh’, although it’s showing up in the normie media as well. Maybe Jordan Peterson and others are helping to show the source of the decline after all.

American Sun begins the week reviewing some works of Alexander Dugin and how they might help us find a way to a post-liberal West. On futile pro-life efforts: Pyrrhic Victory in the Land of the Dead. Jake Bower provides a look Jim Thompson, a post-WW2 writer of pulp fiction: The Grifter’s Guide to America. What the upcoming civil war might look like: The Creeping Danger of Memetically Stochastic Assassinations. Ending the week: Five Friday Reads.

There is nothing like being out of cell coverage with not a photon of Wifi service about to give one time to clear one’s head. The internet really is information overload. I suspect this current societal upheaval, with its talk of a civil war, is actually a response to what the internet has revealed: modern Progressive liberalism does not work and it never did. It’s a sham whose facade is held up by sacrificing our social capital and our prosperity.

Its Messiah, Barack Obama, came and went, and things only got worse. Ms. Merkel implemented its highest ideals, and a million migrants later, her nation was in chaos with its women being assaulted and raped in the streets. Canada’s own Saviour, Le Dauphin, Justin Le Premier, rode a wave of Progressive promises and became the top politician in Canada. His reign has been less than four years and Canada has never been more fractured nor perceived as more weak and simultaneously corrupt. What is most startling is how very quickly, when actual Progressivism is implemented, things turn to chaos.

The pending civil war we keep hearing about is I suspect two different camps forming in response. One, is doubling down on Progressivism, possibly lamenting that it has never actually been tried, but more often, nubes thinking they discovered a new social justice cause when in reality all those causes are history, most being recycled from the civil rights movements of the middle 20th century, if not much earlier.

The other feels something is wrong. They’re not quite sure what that is, but they feel it. You don’t need to be a goaltender to know, in your gut, when it’s time to replace the goaltender. They sense that our nations are not working properly and the system is not producing what it’s supposed to. In the reactosphere and the dissident right, we see the system producing exactly what it is designed to, which is a way to power.

It never worked as a way to uplift the masses, because Progressivism has always been an exercise in ignoring reality in the hopes of realizing an ideal, by denying facts about race, genetics, language, abilities, and the sexes. It has been tried with ever increasing fervour for over 200 years and it’s only getting worse. I’m in this camp and as you are reading this, I suspect you might be similarly inclined.

Clarissa’s answer to the question: Who Gains from illegal immigration?

The Ensign Hour’s latest, a grab bag on the state of things in Canada:

A interesting article on modern literature and how in attempts to flatter the reader, it makes them impoverished thinkers.

Myth of the 20th Century with their weekly podcast, on torture and the Abu Ghraib Scandal during Iraq War II.

PA Blog with the best (shortest) immigration debate ever. On Military Leadership and Diversity. A Prediction for England. He translates Elegy of Fortinbras, the words one reasonably assumes the Norwegian king had for Hamlet upon finding Denmark destroyed from within.

Z Man with his Z Blog Power Hour Podcasts: a particularly good The Roots of Our Madness. The first part hit hard for me. Do LTTWT. Z Man attends American Rennaisance, Part I and Part II. On Ethno-Fanaticism, or ways forward from the current attempts at globalization:

The old national identity used to function as the strong force that subordinated the local and tribal, in favor of the national. While France could have plenty of local flavor, so to speak, the strong force of French nationalism bound all those local tribes together like horses pulling a wagon. As that strong force is deliberately weakened, nothing has come to replace it, so the weak force is taking over. The response by elites is to attack group identity by writing the people out of their own history.

Also, on Privacy on the Technology State. His weekly podcast from last week: the May Grab Bag. On conspiracy theories and what they tell us. Z Man also gets the inaugural Double-Quote of the Week award with Citationism, an explanation of the footnote laden mess passing for academic writing these days:

When people stop looking for gaps in their own knowledge or in the prevailing orthodoxy, they no longer have much to say. The lack of curiosity used to be the end of an academic career. It was when the old guy was put out to pasture, gaining the “emeritus” label. Today, a promiscuous lack of curiosity is a requirement for anyone entering the media, the academy or the official public space. As a result, we have a class of academics and public intellectuals, who are a circus of banality.

On a lesson from the history of medicine: Be Careful What You Rationalize.

Filed under ‘so many red pills’, via Apocalyptic Revolutionary, an article on the US government backed non-violent resistance intellectual Gene Sharp. It’s long, but it help connect the dots on all those Colour Revolutions over the last half century.

The Orthosphere on how to be a college administrator Witch Doctor. On expressions of identity through music, Slavik style. A not-so-subtle sample:

Followed up with Alfvéns Midsommarvaka, a sample of Swedish classical music. Also, no description needed: Belief in “Evolution” is not Necessary for the Dissident Right.

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.

Spandrell moved his blog to his own platform. This is fall out from Heartiste’s take down by WordPress last week. I’ll plug Spandrell’s work on Biological Leninism here. You should check it out. 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.

Evolutionist X on with a follow-up on the…Pygmy-pocalypse?

Scholar’s Stage with some interesting critiques of sexual (mate) selection.

The Myth of the 20th Century interviews Tom Sunic. They discuss identity, US/USSR parallels and the forces turning the world into a giant Wal-Mart.

Malcolm for Mother’s Day. Do click through. Also, he asks ‘Why Evil?’: The Suffering of the Innocent. Racist Thing #108: of course it’s the Unbearable Whiteness of Farming. What great restraint the South Africans are showing restraining their murderous urges! (Maybe. “For now.”) Also, what makes old folks see doom. On how entropy relates to inequality: The Conservation of Entropy.

Dr. Spencer on what’s causing the warming in Global WarmingTM.

Z Man starts the week on what the latest round of Progressive fury is telling us. The Left has nothing new, and the Right, even less: Modern Political Escapism. Also, his thoughts on southern identity.

Steve Sailer gets an interesting comment on ‘Equality’ dominating politics.

On the Orthosphere, Bores, Babblers and Buffoons. It’s quite clever, but perhaps I think so because I’m boorish. On why college admissions should be sold for cash.

William Briggs continues his Summary Against Modern Thought: How God Uses Secondary Causes. How Nature published a paper endorsing indoctrinating children to “educate” their parents on Climate ChangeTM. I think they should call it the Pavlik Program. On a moral fallacy plaguing our times: The Consent Fallacy. Ianto Watt continues his guest post with On Islam – Part II.

Via Anatoly Karlin, Guillame Durocher’s Weeping for Notre Dame:

Flèche_en_feu_-_Spire_on_Fire.jpeg

I must then admit that I was not particularly moved by Notre-Dame burning. I’ve already made my peace with impermanence. I already know that the rot that is consuming France will in all likelihood kill this fair nation within my lifetime. My heart has already been broken. I have already wept for this. Who can claim, in all sincerity, that in a mere hundred years a nation will still exist on this soil – let alone a nation worthy of the name “France”?

Al fin on how the latest bout of space enthusiasm might just produce a change for humanity.

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. This is one problem with our nation: with only the individual left (after the gutting of family, church and common-interest social groups) the state ends up run by an oligarchy with no accountability. No matter what they do, you’ll be told it’s what you agreed to.

From our Statistician to the Stars: this week’s Summary Against Modern Thought. Filed under “Fuckthewhat”: Celebrating High School Whoredom. A long but well worth it essay on the limitations and usefulness of IQ. P-Values in statistics take another beating, this time on “trends”. Christianity is All But Kaput in the West. Guest Ianto Watt’s excellent explanation of the West’s embrace of Islam. A taste:

At bottom, the only thing that worldly post-western people fear is Christianity. Real and awakened Christianity. First, because it calls them to acknowledge their sins. Their personal sins. Not ‘group sins’ like the carbon footprint and white privilege. They’re happy to claim those social sins, as long as it is ascribed to a group, and not to them personally. After all, even Nancy has a wall around her house. Hers is for aesthetics, of course. Not racism. Or xenophobia.

From a recent find, the Apocalyptic Revolutionary, with Lessons of the Old Left ¦ Gottfried:

This may answer a question that some members of the Alt-right have put to me: Why do white men submit to a political culture that demeans them? A partial answer is that they have undergone two forms of control. Their minds have been crammed full of egalitarian slogans and the politics of guilt in school, through the media, and even in churches. In recent years we have seen increasing discrimination against whites, and white men in particular—the controversy concerning Covington Catholic High School is but one of many examples. Still, many white men have not had to face the implications of their being unofficial scapegoats, for they are economically shielded and teeming with creature comforts—although, make no mistake, such conditions are not guaranteed to last.

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 04/28/19

Due to my being out of touch for Easter, this week’s Cantandum is going to be a bit longer. For those new to it, it is a summary of articles that reactionaries may find interesting. I do tend to keep it simple. I’m a lawyer and every opinion I give during the week at the real job has to be carefully considered, referenced and sourced, and double-checked for consistency. So when it comes to blogging, I’m pretty off the cuff. There are some things worth saying that need to come from the limbic system.

American Sun compares sold military souls in the US and Iran. On the American Empire’s Legacy of War. An interesting column on the fate of Christianity in the modern world. Mr. Landry on how Millennials got priced out of the housing market in Five Friday Reads.

Jim on Michael Knowles recent visit to UKMC. Quoting Jim:

Marxists, Human biodiversity deniers, Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warmists, and sexual difference deniers simply lie loudly and repeatedly. When one of their lies is rebutted, they ignore the rebuttal, and instead of responding, issue a dozen new lies, then return to the old lie, assuming not only that it was never rebutted, but that everyone, including the person who rebutted it, agrees that it is the obvious, unquestioned, and unquestionable truth – a style of debate that reveals that they know that they are lying.

If Marxists genuinely believed that capitalism was recent, or that the French Revolution was a capitalist revolution rather than an anti capitalist revolution, if Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warmists believed that global warming was causing a refugee crisis, they would respond to evidence and argument with evidence and argument, rather than telling you “the science is settled.”

The video of Mr. Knowles visit, which is worth viewing, given Knowles way of handling hecklers, by mockery and rejection:

Anatoly Karlin reviews Andrew Yang’s book The War on Normal People. Normally, I don’t spend much time on books from the Left, but this is worth a look, if nothing more, to see why Andrew Yang will eventually be burned at the stake.

Malcolm with a great sunset. Also, what Justice Scalia advised Christians to consider about socialism. Under ‘WTF’, a sanctuary judge in a sanctuary courthouse gets busted?!? The Cathedral has really upped its game if it is getting judges to do this shit. Especially as Massachusetts judges are appointed, not elected, so no need to show wokeness to keep your job (at least, unlike Canada, not yet). Also, on Michael Anton’s latest, the Trump Doctrine and ‘America First’ nationalism. If you have not read his The Flight 93 Election, you should.

Woke Capitalism Is Our Enemy, at American Conservative. The article is okay, but the add-ons at the end were better. A taste:

It is like the architecture of today. It’s not worth fighting for, or caring about. Entropy, decadence, a feeling of contempt for the stupid, banal smallness of it all. I mean, what is liberalism today? What do our elites, our ruling class, look like today? Remember that guy with the parents who are very, very well-connected to Democratic Party elites, who got into Princeton by submitting a personal essay that was just “BLACK LIVES MATTER” repeated a hundred times? *That’s* our elites today. There’s the horrors of Communism, of political totalitarianism; but there’s also something else, maybe something that could best be analogized to “The Nothing” from the Never Ending Story. One of the things that’s so awful about today’s ascendant liberalism is that it is so ascendant and dominant and simultaneously so empty. The emperor has no clothes, and why bother to build families, institutions, communities, or anything else when one knows that one is too cowardly and pathetic to do anything other than go along with everyone else in pretending that the emperor isn’t naked?

The Anti-Gnostic on Totalitarianism, where we should have seen it coming from, as the barriers between the State and the individual ended.

The Orthosphere on that odd notion of Judeo-Christian…anything. Further, an interesting take on the origins and use of guilt trips. A small piece on what every little girl dreams of…being a tackle box, apparently. Plus, a great explanation of the Chinese Room Thought Experiment. Also, reasons not to buy into ‘Folk Psychology‘.

An article by Mr. Evan Charney, a university professor whose contract is not renewed for the raison du jour, a lack of safe space. He points out that the college campus PC cult largely defines its standards by leftist ideology. No one on the MAGA side is screeching about ‘safe spaces’, for instance. It is a distinction I had not appreciated before, as I thought it was due to the upbringing of Millenials, and not an ideology.

Lastly, for Canuckistanis, Throne Altar Liberty with True Allegiance and The Liberal Party’s Politics of Fear. Do RTWT, but here is a quote:

The other implication of these demands is that white supremacism is a significant problem in Canada and a realistic threat to our civilization. This is total bunk, a fact which nobody knows better than the Liberals themselves. It was a Liberal government in 1977, the government led by the father of the present Prime Minister, that passed the Canadian Human Rights Act after selling the Act to the public, with the assistance of the media, by generating a fear that Nazism was on the verge of being reborn here on Canadian soil. This had been facilitated by the formation of the Canadian Nazi Party which contained, maybe, one actual disciple of Adolf Hitler. It otherwise consisted of agents provocateurs supplied by the government and by private activist organizations that had an interest in seeing this legislation passed. There was not the slightest possibility of this group, or any white supremacist group, establishing a Fourth Reich in Canada but the manufactured, bogus, threat of such was used by the Liberals and their allies, to pass a bill which, despite its title, did nothing to protect the lives, property, and freedoms of people under the jurisdiction of Canadian law from the threat of abusive state power, but instead authorized state meddling in all sorts of private interactions and imported, from the Soviet system, thought police and tribunals which, since the media, except for a brief time about a decade ago when it felt its own liberty threatened, has largely refrained from criticizing or even reporting their doings, have been effectually allowed to function as secret police and tribunals. It was this system set up by the Canadian Human Rights Act, and not the phony “Nazi menace” invented to dupe the public into supporting it, which was and is the real threat to our freedom and order, civilization and way of life.

For modern Canadians…sound familiar? Remember, he’s talking about 1977 here. Make no mistake: Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party of Canada have stated publicly, in Parliament and elsewhere, that if you are Canadian then it is implied that you are by virtue of that identity a racist, a sexist , a bigot, and specifically, an Islamophobe. You must seek salvation for your inherent ‘original’ sin, and the only way to do so is by admitting your inherent defects, adopting the Liberal ideology and allowing them to dictate reality to you. It’s not about protecting anyone, or making sure people are protected. It’s about controlling you, your actions and your thoughts. It’s time, Canuckistanis, to stop tolerating this kind of bullshit.

Keep on reactin’
