Alberta. Fuck yeah!

In prior posts I accused the United Conservative Party of being the Unsane Clown Posse. I retract that; all of it. The reason being is this letter by Premier Jason Kenney. It is a response to an Amnesty International open letter addressed to him. It claimed that Alberta’s ‘War Room’, which will seek to counter propaganda against my province and its oil and gas industry, is a human rights violation. Premier Kenney responds (perhaps taking lessons from Trump) by being scornfully dismissive, heaping ridicule and mockery on the writer. My TL;DR translation:

Amnesty International – “Your ‘War Room’ interferes with Globohomo’s Climate EmergencyTM agenda. Please cease and desist or we’ll report you to the Ministry of Truth.”

Premier Kenney – “Fuck off, shill.”

Amnesty International – “Your ‘War Room’ interferes with Globohomo’s Climate EmergencyTM agenda. Please cease and desist or we’ll report you to the Ministry of Truth.”

Premier Kenney: “…???…clownworld.”

It felt like no one would stand up for Alberta, ever since the [current year]. For ten years, we’ve been labeled as the evil oil and gas province, and everyone has shit on us, even our own Prime Minister, who gladly takes our taxes back to Ottawa then treats us like a bag of kittens he can’t wait to drown in the Rideau Canal. Premier Kenney’s response is a salve much needed.

American Sun on Detroit as an example of failure of governance, how government signals weakness, and how this suits the Left just fine. On Why 20 Dem candidates, and the real structure of power in the US. A respectful look at Louisiana’s Huey Long, the last great Leftist Populist. It’s a much needed salve after the hit piece in National Review this week: see Z Man below. A discussion of the coming revival of mafia like organizations due to the mafia-like conduct of our governments. This week’s Five Friday Reads, with comments on trickle down culture and the ‘New Age Girl’. An excellent way to start the weekend.

The Orthosphere revisits the Allure of Lemuria, the Pacific version of Atlantis. Mr. Bertonneau discusses Shostakovich’s “Leningrad” Symphony, and music under Marxism in the Soviet Union. A discussion of what happens when cultural assimilation does not work.

An excellent post at Setting the Record Straight: one easy trick to finding your future wife.

Evolutionist X on pirate law. Also, some random thoughts including this gem:

Which means that you can’t half-ass community. Long term, you can’t have an underclass. You can’t have outcasts. You have to have community, and you can’t force it through some idiotic top-down “team building” exercise, because dammit, that will just make people hate each other even more. Community has to be a real thing that real people actually enjoy being part of, or they will, at best, let it fall apart; at worst they burn it down with you in it.

The Myth of the 20th Century podcast discusses the international arms smuggling trade: Merchants of Death – Brothers In Arms.

It’s been a while.

John Bolton has been dismissed. I expected more traffic on this one, but most seem to have barely noticed.

Malcolm is knackered. What happened to Porter’s blog, Kakistocracy? While recovering, he points to a review of Bronze Age Mindset by Bronze Age Pervert, over at the Claremont Review of Books. It’s more of a summary than review. He also points out two articles on climate change, including the MS Malmö, a research vessel looking at the receding Arctic ice, which it got stuck in that very ice around Svalbard. (Unlike the other Malmö, which is swamped by foreign invaders.)

On 9/11, James True looks at the real America and the roots of the New World Order. Steve Sailer revisits an article he wrote that day, and a troubling interview with a ticket agent who checked-in two of the attackers.

Also from James True, his book is burned.

Morgoth discusses PewDiePie’s recent $50,000 protection payment to the Anti-Defamation League. “Nice YouTube channel…it’d be a shame if someone made it go away. Tell you what, we’ll make sure it’s nice and safe if you male it worth our while.” (Since rescinded, via Occidental Dissent.) Morgoth has a video on why conservatives are not conserving anything:

Mr. Briggs begins the week customarily with Summary Against Modern Thought: Prayer Works , Even When God Knows All. He has thoughts on the drag review show exploiting people with Down’s syndrome, which is okay because they’re in drag, which magically creates capacity to consent. Are Chance or Randomness Real? On diversity and Colorado College’s new test-score free admissions policy: Diversity Is A Money Grubbing Con. In Australia, priests are now by law required to be snitches. Are you an aspiring writer? William’s latest contest is for you! Get in on it now: Cool Four Word Sentence Contest.

RottenChestnuts with a well done rant on why American life is messed up. It’s because you don’t know who makes the laws, how to comply with them, and by whom and when they’ll be enforced. Also, on John Locke and the changing value of one’s life. The second wave: The Basic College Girl, Redux, on the Caroline Calloway phenomenon.

Wilfred McClay (at Hedgehog Review) discusses the misuse and abuse of the word “Friend”.

PA Blog discusses the promises made by Globalists since the fall of the wall. A transitional moment, or where the whites stand in identity politics. Berlin, 1945, on the Battle of Berlin, then and now.

Dr. Spencer discusses Faith…in the Climate EmergencyTM. Good discussions in the comments as well.

Ibid.

At Counter Currents, Mr. Jeelvy discusses Russia and Putin from a eastern European perspective, and the west’s failure to consider them properly. Anton’s diary while visiting the Hungarian ethnostate. For both, RTWT. On the noble roots of our universities and their subsequent defenestration in modern times. The discussion or lack thereof on population control, especially where it is needed most. A review of Dave Chappelle’s newest stand-up special on Netflix. There are some clips of it on YouTube if you want a taste.

To the Edge of Time revisits a post on American meta politics, which goes back to the founding of the nation as the root of Progress.

At Occidental Dissent, Hunter Wallace discusses his time at the League of the South conference, and the Great Unraveling. A short follow-up on the opiate crisis (which is killing people now) and the stupid response proposed by conservatards. He also discusses the staying power of White Identity Politics. Comments on Ramzpaul’s recent video on not joining “movements”:

Alf reviews the new Tool album. I hear it sucks.

The National Review asks: Did Social Work Kill the Civil Society?

Al fin considers goings on in Hong Kong, and the potential for decoupling it from China.

Council of Canadian Europeans on the recent Vancouver op-ed (subsequently taken down), which, gasp!, said diversity is not our strength.

Z Man gets called up to the Bigs, and co-hosts the FashTheNation podcast. (Z Man is already pretty big.) He discusses the Progressive erosion of religion and tradition as a way to undermine authority. “The louder he talked of his honor, the faster we counted our spoons“…on David French’s brand of conservatism. He speaks of a recent “White Box” article which trashed Huey Long (in the National Review). On the next fight between political ideologies over who gets to run the West. His weekly Z Blog Power Hour podcast is a mail bag edition: Dear Z Man.

Steve Sailer with a lesson from the Chinese Cultural Revolution, which can enlighten us about the PC things on our campuses. His weekly column in Taki magazine is on old rulers and young men in sub-saharan Africa. Filed under “Can’t Be Made Up”.

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.

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!

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

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 07/14/19

Something near and dear to my heart to start the week: reparations for the Norman conquest of 1066. Once the Normans took over, the native language, Old English, fell out of favour (who can blame them…all those cases and agglutinated words). I’m now oppressed by my own language, speaking a pidgin of Old English and Norman French, which constantly reminds me of the Norman pillage and rape of my ancestors (maybe), plus makes it almost impossible to get myself drunk in Iceland.

Norman Coat of Arms. Those lions subliminally encourage raping Anglo-Saxons.

Speaking of when the collective guilt should end, an article on the malaise in modern Deutschland and a review of Finis Germania by Rolf Peter Sieferle.

The Council of European Canadians on Canada Day celebrations, when there is not much left to celebrate. Also, a guest post on what to do about UK universities. On how Chernobyl is the model for the human-free future. On Christianity and the Modern West, which adds to the evidence of what I suspect is true, that Christianity was a fundamental part of the rise of the western civilization.

The Neo-Ciceroneon times has a great post on reparations and the current power structure: Reparations as Intraelite Competition.

Cambria Will Not Yield: The Image of the Beast Shall Die.

People are really up in arms about Jeffery Epstein’s arrest. I’ve been under a rock, but ZeroHedge has been covering the matter quite well. James True considers Epstein’s “science” ventures. For a ragey analysis, see Mr. Molyneaux:

Many have hopes this will be the end of the deep state, the Clintons’ downfall, or be Trump’s revenge for Russiagate. I think that’s unlikely. If that many rich and powerful people are involved, it will be no surprise when Mr. Epstein hangs himself in his cell. Either that or gets helped into one of these (courtesy Apocalyptic Revolutionary).

The Agonist with an article on who makes sure academia remains Left, that being the academic Right.

A new find: the RottenChestnuts blog. He’s got some discussion of political theory going on at his site, but this week’s link is to how he thinks we may see the posting of 95 theses against the SJW Church soon.

PA Blog on a day in the countryside, encounters with the Amish, and the Hussein way to deal with bad ideas.

GA Blog on the language of resentment. SJWs act like spoiled children because they will not grow the hell up. And why would they? They were coddled all their lives, told they were all special snowflakes that could do anything they wanted, and then found out that reality either melts snowflakes or crushes them into ice. Anyways, GA Blog states:

Maturity means being able to notice more and more distinctions—and all distinctions are on some level invidious—while attending more and more to the formalizing of those distinctions, rather than to seeking out their justifications. The most egalitarian world possible would instantly turn into the most inegalitarian one: imagine we could all be placed in a state of nature, with equal physical and intellectual capabilities. As soon as we got started doing something, status distinctions would emerge—someone notices something first, someone gets a little more of something, someone, maybe for random reasons, is a bit more attractive than others, etc. Even if the differences were minute and rapidly changing they would loom large. So, everyone would be immediately, and constantly, faced with the choice: you can think, how do I get as much as that person (or reduce him to as little as me); how do I make myself as attractive as that person (or reduce his attractiveness), and so on; or, how can these status distinctions be formalized, so that what it means to have access to things, to identify new centers, to be the center of others’ attention can be made explicit and therefore a source of order. You might still want more things, to have more power, to be more attractive, and you might use others as models to acquire these things, but you would do so in such a way as to strengthen the meaning the center has conferred upon such practices.

Evolutionist X with some thoughts on fame: Fame Is Terrible for People. On American Senescence, and the consequences of an aging population.

Mr. Briggs begins the week with Summary Against Modern Thought: The Heavens Do Not Control All. His thoughts on how “being” a homosexual is a sin. The Cranky Professor guest posts a refutation of physicalism. Mr. Briggs reviews a new paper on the scientific meaninglessness of psychiatric diagnoses. Guest Ianto Watt on Islam as a relgion you might choose: Your Most Important Choice Part III. To finish the week, This Week In Doom – Tranny Madness is Big Business Edition.

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 06/23/19

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

The Problem:

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

Armin Mohler, Gegen die Liberalen

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

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

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

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

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

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

Policing content on the internet is in our future: Algorithmic Optimization Has Begun.

Cambria Will Not Yield on how Satan came to the west, and what must be done to remove him: No More Night. Also, a brilliant piece, The Bowstrings of the Spirit:

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

Anatoly Karlin on the “Colour Revolution” in Georgia.

The Orthosphere on the era we live in: the Golden Age of Scribbling. A well done piece on Illuminative Materialism. An interesting account of the origins of ‘Clique’ and ‘Claque’. Mr. Burtonneau gets his satire on. It’s clever and funny, and for a moment, you wonder if it is real. A philosophical skeleton key: Facts Are Fossils of Acts. On what it is like to be a Secondary Cause. It’s very nice, once you get over yourself. Also, some thoughts on what stops the mind from wandering. A discussion of the three types of power, applied to the US.

Last week’s Z Blog Power Hour: Open Borders! Just the listing of all the different visas given to foreigners for entry into the United States is worth it. Z Man on understanding the Left. He discusses the regulation of old and new public spaces, and Trump’s Immigration Agitation. This week’s Z Blog Power Hour, the grab bag for June. On Politics and Aesthetics:

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

A demonstration of how things can go wrong in science. Listen to the Pope, repent your consumption sins, and join the one-world government. (You’ll never hear that Police song in the same way again. Lyrics here.)

Is the love of money the root of all evil? Yes, according to Mr. Briggs. I agree somewhat. Getting someone to agree to something for which, if they had understood the truth and the consequences, they would never agree to, is a big root of all evil. That includes the financial follies and usury that Mr. Briggs discusses. What can be done with the universities? Sir Scruton may have an answer.

Lastly, it’s a clownworld after all, it’s a clownish clownworld. Seriously, is anything real being communicated in that morass?

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.

Guillaume Durocher with all you want to know about the EU Parliament elections.

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.

Al fin with a surprising article on home schooled children being overqualified. Something about learning useful stuff, instead of indoctrination.

The Myth of the 20th Century crew with this week’s podcast: The Management Myth – Taylorism and the Origins of Scientific Management. It’s really good: do LTTWT.

Evolutionist X with a grab bag: Back Row America, Back Row Bronze Age Europe. Apparently, diversity was not a strength for Globular Amphora culture in Poland either. Also, an interesting overview of the evolution of horses.

Steve Sailer on the Great Awokening over at NYT.

The Scholar’s Stage on how to save the Humanities.

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.

Steve Sailer on Speaking Power to Truth.

I wish I had seen this earlier: Faith Goldy on the tightening fist in Canada. Big Junior is watching you.

To finish, some very cool pictures of Norway. Skål!

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.

William Briggs with an overview of Florida’s anti-… laws. Last week’s This Week In Doom – Mandatory Insanity Edition. The latest installment of his ongoing Summary Against Modern Thought: God Uses Angels and Demons. Mr Briggs also has a new book, an old book, an online course, and a donation button. Via a commenter, a summary of a paper on models with some not surprising consequences: V.I. Arnold on Models. He issues a challenge: what if young Earth theories are true? Closing the week, This Week in Doom – You Will Love Butt Brother Edition.

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.

Alf on Defecting From the Right. Plus, Putin is being used as a boogeyman, or perhaps just a scapegoat. Arguments against copyright.

Not what you’ve been told it was about.

Evolutionist X with some bad logic from the Left: The Idiocy of Categorical Purity. She also has a grab bag with Some Interesting Things. (Which includes this indelible description of being red-pilled, over old Vietnam War photos.) On Bio-Thermodynamics and Aging. 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. Some thoughts on self flattery. Also, on folks who write, but probably should not: Playing My Part In the Great Work of Social Destruction.

Jim on When the Rot Set In, for Ms. Clinton and the East India Company.

Throne, Altar, Liberty with an essay on the economic history of Puritanism: Ethics and Economics.

American Sun on doxing and Five Friday Reads. Ryan Landry and Billy Pratt with final comments on Ted Bundy. Superlutheran on Nietzsche, the Übermensch, and advice on recovering from sickness. On Network Strategy, being the fifth excerpt of the Myth of the 20th Century crew’s book Exit Strategy. When the Methodists fought the ‘poz…and the Methodists won.

The other Five Friday Reads – on Memorial Day. It includes a perfect capturing of the Zeitgeist by Thierry Baudet, who reviews Sérotonine and gives an overview of the work of Houellebecq. Do RTWT…like your society depends upon it.

Well I’m glad they take this sort of thing seriously! A few more months of that and I’m sure Chicago’s murder problem will be over.

WordPress suspends Chateau Heartiste! Fuckers. Hopefully Heartiste will reappear elsewhere soon.

Anyways, I’m sure the clamp down on the dissidents will stop there…oh wait. Spandrell speaks and has moved Bloody Shovel to his own service. You can find the introduction to Bloody Shovel 2 at Spandrell.com. PA Blog has an open thread running here.

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.

Closing out the week: This Week In Doom – Out of Control Matriarchy Edition.

Razib Khan on physical differences between men and women. What a surprise! There’s some basis for segregated sports after all.

Z Man joins the merchant Right. Complicit Rightness, or what the Jews do right and the inoculant for social justice. On what makes an America: Credalism. Why are pints shrinking and gasoline energy content declining? Here’s your answer. On the End of the Road…for the Enlightenment.

The Orthosphere asks Is God Omniscient and Omnipotent? On our fleeting existence: Divest Yourself or Be Divested. A quick history of the development of the Transcontinental Railroad. Kristor finds something good about modern architecture.

The Apocalyptic Revolutionary with some images from Gaza rocket launches.

spetsnaz

Myth of the 20th Century with this week’s podcast: Spetsnaz – The Soviet Special Forces.

Steve Sailer on the alarming level of white supremacy in our oceans, and on modern “American” slave owners.

Alf looks at Slavoj Zizek one more time. A profound realization: we are merely players and All the World’s a Stage.

Jim on the potential coup…perhaps by Dems, or by Trump himself.

Evolutionist X asks “What’s To Be Done With the Dumb?” An interesting look at digestive issues being misdiagnosed as psychological problems.

For Canuckistanis, they’re rude, crude, lewd, and stewed (likley, in libations from Unibroue)…but they’re OUR rude, crude, lewd and stewed: the Ensign Hour.

At American Sun, Bad Billy Pratt and Ryan Landry ask Where Did All the Serial Killers Go? On the latest generation of the elite, and what they do with their money: Beware the Benevolence of the Wealthy. The third excerpt from the Myth of the 20th Century crew’s new book: Civilizationally Unviable. Always interesting: Five Friday Reads, plus Overlooked Developments, which looks at some news stories in the US you may have missed.

PA Blog with more thoughts on Cobra Kai Season Two. Also, thoughts on the no so subtle form of psychological warfare: Intolerance of Blasphemy.

From Anatoly Karlin, something I did not see coming, The Sixth Proof of God. I like where he goes with it:

Nonetheless, I do believe that the evidence here is sufficiently strong for it to be worthwhile – effectively altruistic – to criminalize atheism, and liberalism as the gateway drug to Communism. It is better that a few heretics vanish than that an entire planet falls to Chaos.

In case you think he’s fooling…nope.

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.

On Easter

'The+Resurrection+of+Christ'+by+Nicolas+Bertin+(c.+1710)-landscape

The Lord Has Risen

The Orthosphere on the meaning of Christ’s suffering. William Briggs with Happy Resurrection Day! Anti-Gnostic with the Harrowing of Hell.

Audacious Epigone on violence against Christians Easter Worshipers.

The Rest

An interesting post-mortem on Notre Dame. From Clarissa, seemingly from a dissident left – signs of discontent. Filed under ‘nuff said‘. Also, on the next iteration of the degree granting college. Plus, the Costs of Diversity (the Wikipedia entry on Justine’s death, and her killer Mohamed Noor, is eye opening).

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.

GA Blog with more thoughts on HLvM.

Alf on the trials of Thierry Baudet. Plus, a follow-up here.

PA Blog on Earth Day. A look back at communism and the surprise when it was found out the west had it too. Plus, the Miracle in Minneapolis. A link to A Ballad of the Burning Cathedral. A foray into modern pop culture.

Evolutionist X with interesting considerations on dignity. Followed up with Speaking of dignity, and politeness.

Signs of civilization collapsing, by Audacious Epigone. Also, on Our New Tech Overlords. Plus, More Migrants Please.

At Neo-Ciceronian Times, some tactics for the Dissident Right – We’re Not Going To Talk Our Way Out of This. Agreed.

Z Man on The Strange Death of Neo-Conservatism. Related, those conservative Lotus Eaters. His appearance on Happy Homelands. His thoughts on the use of the term ‘Dissident Right‘. He examines stagnation in the west in Beyond Archeofuturism. On Contempt of the People, and how the cycles of history don’t play out the same way every time. His weekly Z Blog Power Hour.

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?

Spandrell on debt and debt jubilees, worth an RTWT.

Mr. Briggs with This Week In Doom – Religion In Flames Edition. A guest post: Ianto Watt’s ‘Sing, Ye Gods, Of The Wrath Of Achilles‘, on paganisms, old and new. Mr. Briggs on a Flood of Evidence, which is notes on Bertonneau remarks on de Maistre’s Elucidation on Sacrifices. Also, on what play and fun used to look like. Guest Cranky Professor on Time Travel. A contest on who can parody Christianity. Coming full circle: This Week In Doom – Dead Christians Edition.

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.

Faith Goldy Red Ensign

Obligatory girl with Red Ensign picture. Thanks, Faith Goldy.

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.

Der Frühling blutet in Paris.”

Notre Dame de paris brûle! C’est tres tragique! Je crains que ce soit un mauvais augure. PA blog commente ici. Clarissa, avec pourquoi elle ne peut past être remplacée. Z Man: qu’est-ce qui vient ensuite. Malcolm, avec sa perspective. L’argument de l’inimitié de nos ennemis, par l’Orthosphère. Resentement.

51RUez6PxCL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

Z Man on the coming US Civil War II. His quick review of Duton and Woodley’s At Our Wits End, on declining intelligence in the west. On the Lie Machine and its motives. He wonders if a lack of imagination is a sign of the times. Also, his weekly podcast, on Letters to Z Man.

The Orthosphere begins the week with an overview of the works of Joseph de Maistre: Enlightenment and Sacrifice. Also, Immigrants Are Assimilating. Berdyaev continued: Maximal Freedom Means Maximal Responsibility. A Westerner reads the Koran (Second Surah). All are great. RTWTs.

Such immigrant assimilation is something I have noticed up here in Albertastan. A small number of immigrants are showing up in court challenging all kinds of laws and demanding privileges, and when their demands are not met, it be raycis! They accuse the judge, the clerks, the bailiffs, the lawyers, and everyone else in the room of being racist. If there is a law that stops them from doing what they want, the law is racist. They gladly trot out the local Human Rights Code and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and claim a breach. And when that does not work, they say those rules are racist also. It’s racist turtles all the way down.

It’s laughable, as they seem to almost believe the word “racist” is magic that trumps all other laws and precedents. I wonder where they got that from? Mr. Watson gets it right: they watch the dominant progressive culture in the media, and they assume the words are magic, because otherwise, how else could such a word have any power?

For a particularly egregious abuser, see this decision on Mr. Abe Olumide, who filed suit in every single province, a mari usque ad mare, to have election laws struck down as racist to try and force a political party to let him run as their candidate. I note that Justice Thomas was rumoured to be undergoing chemotherapy at the time he wrote this, so perhaps that explains his disposition. Nonetheless, it’s nice to see someone say, indirectly, “I’m sick and tired of your bullshit.”

He also mentions the annual Bulwer Lytton Fiction Contest. Do it for the lulz!

Cantandum In Ezkhaton 04/07/19

Time for some house keeping.

I’ve tried to put more Canadian content in here, but it’s kind of sparse up North. Having a population one-tenth of the United States is certainly one cause. It might also be that we are too polite to be reactionary, I have not looked hard enough, that Canada is not experiencing the degree of conflict over race and immigration that the US is, or that our media is so tightly controlled that reactionary voices have a much harder time. Or some combination of these causes. If you are aware of some Canadian sources that are not appearing here, let me know by comment below.

I also noticed that Polish readers are about to overtake second place Canadians by number of views. (The largest audience is from the United States.) We have a large Polish population where I live, so I’m glad my Polish friends are interested: Dzięki, and twoje zdrowie!

Onwards and upwards…The Orthosphere on problems of incorporation. An in-depth review of the death and life of Dominique Venner, long but worth it. On heterodoxy as a sign of decay, and the Muddy Sloughs of Trouble. Does Form Follow Function? Lastly, on the Fallacy of Inapt Abstraction.

William Briggs has a full week, beginning with his Summary Against Modern Thought. He then asks: What did you do to celebrate White Male Privilege Week? On AI versus Statistics, and related, Ending the Tyranny of Parameters. Mr. Briggs also ponders: Maybe angels work this way. Our Statistician to the Stars ends the week, kind of bleakly (but I think accurately) with This Week In Doom – White Anti-White Edition.

Lord Black of Crossharbour on the Dem’s presidential candidates, specifically Biden:

And now, he is being sandbagged because he allegedly touched two or more women many years ago, perfectly legally, with no discreditable intent, out of affection with no claimed sexual aspect. It is to this unimaginable depth of idiocy that the American Left’s pursuit of victimhood to be lionized and avenged, and its lust to degrade the straight, adult, white male has descended.

Also, I had no idea what a Gandarene Stampede was, but I think it would be suitable way to deal with the Progressives.

Clarissa has a book review of Byung-Chul Han’s Psychopolitics: Neoliberaism and New Technologies of Power in many parts, well worth RTWTs. From Part 6:

By the way, our socialist friends, what are you going to nationalize now when there’s neither a nation nor a means of production?

All parts are here: one, two, three, four, five, six, and eight. (Seven seems to be a no-show.)

Al fin’s discussion of freedom of assembly by conference. Also, a Messiah to replace Obama.

Evolutionist X with How To Raise a Genius. She has also started a new blog on home schooling and children’s books. On the ubiquity of violence and what reduces it. A discussion of music, including Rammstein’s latest, Deutschland (lyrics here with translation).

In this video, ‘Germania’ is played by a black actress, at many stages of history. She is surrounded by thugs, monks, astronauts, politicians, Stasi, Roman soldiers, politicians, Nazis, concentration camp prisoners, all played by the band members. She simultaneously exploits them while she herself is exploited (symbolically cannibalized in one scene), driving acts of depravity in her honour, while being subject to the depravity herself. At the end, she has given birth to a litter of big puppies…perhaps mutts?

I’ve been a fan of Rammstein for a while, and I always feel like they’re trolling a bit. Their videos always seem more about taking mundane lyrics and going over the top visually to provoke a reaction. (For example, fat suits in Keine Lust, the fun surf-crowd in Mein Land, and the cumshots in Pussy (not mundane but banal; you’ll have to go to PornHub or torrents to get that one).) Not so with this song. The lyrics come from the heartbroken.

I think the point of the video is that Germany has risen to great heights many times in its history. But with that rise, also follows a tendency to consume itself internally, leading to its fall. Its strength is always its discipline, tidiness, industriousness, and intelligence. But that is always in tension with a tendency to eat itself through consumption, decadence, and internal wasting of its institutions, traditions, peoples and resources. For a German, seeing this tendency play out (lately, the million migrant problem), repeating recent and distant history, must be frustrating. And I don’t think Germany is the only nation with this problem, at present.

I’ll say that Rammstein has managed to make lamenting and mourning the loss of a western state by its own self-cannibalism semi-tolerable in the mainstream. Inch by inch…

Alf with a black pill of sorts, but I think he is right: “Yes, well what did you expect.” We’re having a provincial election up here in Albertastan. Currently, we’ve got Rachel Notley’s NDP (the popular Left party in Canada) as incumbent, versus Jason Kenney’s United Conservative Party (UCP), which is a cobbling of Right parties after they spectacularly self-destructed in the lead up to our last provincial election.

Rachel, then.

In Ms. Notley’s four years she has implemented leftist policies (some SJW like) in order to confirm that indeed, Ms. Notley is the only person who can protect the rights of [insert ‘disadvantaged group’ here]. Most of what she has done has been off the mark, or unenforceable, or backfired, or with potential consequences of billions of dollars in the future. She never fails, however, to shamelessly self-promote while setting up these time bombs. For instance, putting in place economic policies which mirror those of New Zealand during the Great Depression in response to a recession, and getting the same result, an extended recession. No one could have seen that coming.

Premier Notley, now.

After four years of her self-promoting nonsense, the UCP looked like it would finally end the insanity. But no, the current election campaign makes it clear the UCP stands for United Clown Posse, who think ‘conservative’ means the progressive agenda on cruise control, rather than putting the pedal the metal as Ms. Notley did.

Lake Louise, and the Spirit of Alberta

The Alberta I grew up in was a place where the provincial government did not act unless there was an interest at stake that ACTUALLY needed protecting, whether for the populace or the Crown. It was not perfect, but it sure was stable. The province stayed out of people’s lives, and the attitude was that most people could handle their troubles. The best thing the Crown could do was provide a safe and secure province with commercial certainty. We did well.

That’s all gone. Rachel Notley now campaigns on the idea that Albertans are not capable of handling even the most mundane problems in their lives, and the only solution is intervention by HER state. The UCP preaches a milder form of the same. I saw this happen in other provinces and nationwide in Canada decades ago. Alberta was a last bastion of sanity. The NDP/UCP (and to be fair, it’s predecessors) have turned it into a morass of lunacy. This has been coming for a while now, ever since Alison Redford took power back in 2012. ‘What did I expect?’ indeed. Conservatives conserve nothing.

I think this is the year I take Moldbug’s advice and stop participating in the charade that is democracy.

It took this Z Man podcast to cheer me back up.
