Cantandum in Ezkhaton 01/05/20

A perfect metaphor for leadership in the West – empty, but for a few getting drunk at the bar.

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

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Happy New Year to everyone!

For the New Year: The Council of European Canadians – Happy New Year 2020; January will be International ‘It’s Okay to Be White Day’. Vulture of Critique makes a New Year’s Resolution to waste less time blogging (he cites me, I cite him, I feel like it’s the blogging circle of life). Anatoly Karlin says Happy New Year! ReactionaryThought posts a video of Trump‘s New Years Eve press conference. From Occidental Dissent, Happy New Year! Malcolm wishes us a Happy New Year, and notes it will be an interesting one. The Orthosphere says Happy New Year with a post on how to understand Santa. Vanishing American II with New Year’s wishes for all. Happy New Decade from the Anti-Gnostic.

The US launches a drone strike in Iraq to kill high ranking Iranian General Qasem Soleimani leader of the elite Quds Force. This was done to protect the US embassy in Baghdad after a seige. Iraq is pissed. Most prominent politicians and the MSM stick to their talking points, never wasting an angle to maintain or increase control. Occidental Dissent says this shows Trump cannot be trusted at the reigns of foreign policy. Al fin notes that Obama admired Soleimani publicly, and thwarted Israel’s attempt to assassinate him a while back. (You know, it’s funny but the CBC claimed the exact opposite early on, but I cannot find the article now.) Malcolm with his thoughts: Pop Goes the Weasel. Counter Currents asks if you’re tired of this kind of winning (which feels like losing) yet? PA Blog notes that all those white men the State keeps beating up on may not be interesting in fighting for that same State. Iran is signalling that it intends to go to war, and refuses mediation with the US. (Seriously, in this situation only a libtard with no real world experience would propose ‘mediation’ at this point. Was it Justin Trudeau?) John Derbyshire’s Radio Derb podcast opens this week with comments on this situation, and ends with camel balls being bitten (talk about closing the circle). Audacious Epigone notes that Iran is enormous compared to other nations of the region. Morgoth’s Review on how quickly Conservatism Inc. has rushed in to support the attack:

New Murdoch Murdoch, Mythos, or a retelling of the saga of World War II (at Cheeky Videos). It appears the Murdoch Murdoch site is down and content is being moved.

Alf at Garden of the Internet on the despicable people running the show in the West and a hope that good guys keep winning. Also, he discusses evil and how influential it is: If the devil weren’t persuasive he’d suck at his job.

Mr. Neal at Throne, Altar, Liberty with his annual circling of the wagons, where he describes his politics and his faith.

Lord Black of Crossharbour on Trump’s record, reminding us that often times, those shilling on Trump’s ‘failures’ are only trying to demoralize his supporters.

Bret Stephens writes an NYT column on Jewish intelligence and this gets a lot of attention. Steve Sailer notes the shift on anti-Semitism since 2006. Audacious Epigone looks at Gentile versus Chosen IQs. By way of Isegoria, they who made the bomb and the advantages of Jews in tyrannical societies. Already, a retraction of sorts.

Black Pigeon Speaks at Felix Rex discusses the coming decade:

Also, on money, how it was created and evolved:

Vanishing American II on renaming the Dixie Highway because ‘Dixie’ is just too triggering. Really, the progs are victorious and any chance for subjugation is likely to be exploited.

Council of European Canadians with Part II of their look at the next US Civil War.

RottenChestnuts discusses two recent Z Man posts and the strange ways of dissenters in America. He also discusses Z Man’s 2020 predictions as well. A closer, on why the Dem Presidential candidates all say the same thing in their advertising: standardized tests. An enlightening post on the mating behaviour of the female college student.

The Zeroth Position posts a year in review of their work for 2019.

Malcolm with more thoughts on scientific materialism and its unsatisfactory answers for phenomenon in our universe. He is unhappy with explanations for quantum mechanical phenomenon and he is right. As a science, it is a disaster, with over 15 different theories about quantum mechanics. They have phenomenon they cannot describe without absurdities such as infinite dimensions or photons from another universe! I think there is probably a very good explanation for things like the interference pattern arising from a single electron in a double-slit experiment, but no one living is smart enough to figure it out. We’ll need another Newton or Einstein to sort it all out, and I suspect a new form of mathematics. We may have to wait a few hundred years before it happens. For the current state of physics, I find Carlo Rovelli (who works on Loop Quantum Gravity) to be the best popularizer of science. He’s got humility about it, and seems to feel that in some ways, after all this time, we’re still arguing about the same things the pre-Socratics did. Rovelli’s books The Order of Time and Reality is Not What It Seems are excellent.

John Derbyshire’s Radio Derb podcast delves deep into the mystery of where the US government keeps getting all that money. He also posts his December Diary over at Unz Review, looking at our transition to the 2020s, overclaimed victim statistics, and Boris Johnson’s knowledge of the Iliad.

Dr. Spencer with cool looking clouds, from increasing CO2 along with low solar output.

Al fin on climate predictions not doing so well. He has a post on new developments for 2020, including our 14ns longer day!

GA Blog on those speaking from a position of power, and the near absence of their actual perspectives.

Amerika, on what Conservatives conserve:

Conservatives tend to succumb to the time-preference fallacy. They say, “Well, the right way to live is that old thing, but since people do something different now, we’ll stop struggling against that and defend it as the status quo against new, even crazier things.”

 

Much as it is popular on the Right to blame the politicians, the fact is that all of the crazy stuff that has passed did so because it was popular with the voters, even if not directly voted on, and that voters have refused to take it back after it was discovered to be dysfunctional (with the rare exception of Prohibition).

 

In other words, ours is not a political struggle, but a resistance to the tendency of humanity to be solipsistic, deny reality, form Crowds, and then take over our society from within and destroy it. We need to get out of this constant birth-death cycle.

 

If humanity has any hope, it lies in figuring out what works for a civilization and never changing it. You can add technology, but you need to preserve the social order. This requires three things: being flexible, being fanatical, and having a constant stream of geniuses who “get it” lest the bureaucrats take over.

Also on Conservatism, its biggest mistake, trying to define itself as an ideology. More from Amerika, on the word that has induced the zombie-like stupor in the West: Equality. It reminds me of the movie Pontypool, which is a take on zombification by language:

Also, Amerika looks at the appeal of virtue, discussing the original meaning of Philosophy, Marcus Aurelius, Nietzsche and the need to be challenged. Also, a look at freedom versus slavery and how neither exists to the exclusion of the other.

Favourite Periscope this week is the last one of the year.

Occidental Dissent with ten reasons to hate the liberal ideal. NBC reports white Christian American ended in the 2010s. He’s looking for nominees for traitor of the year.

Audacious Epigone on the issue which may define the twentytwenties: you’re conquered…deal with it. On the ongoing campaign against porn, and (((Them)))…a religion or not? On the GQ, or a break down by race of belief in God, or lack thereof.

Cambria Will Not Yield discusses liberal Satanism, after contemplating why they wage war on Christmas.

Patriactionary: Michael Caine with the only reason needed for Brexit. He has a few quick bites: on post-apartheid South African police, and modern scolds rediscovering their great-grandmothers’ temperance movement. He hopes the Green-Right coalition in Austria is a sign of things to come.

Steve Sailer with an old Noam Chomsky joke.

Scholar’s Stage looks at a first attempt at diplomacy by Instagram, by the Nepalese ambassador to China.

PA Blog with Offerte Vobis Pacem, a Polish song “Let us offer each other a sign of peace.” Also, on the picture that would define the 2010s.

Counter Currents on Eastern European women and the IKEA date. They remember Rudyard Kipling and provide some of his most relevant poems. A very compelling ‘Why I Write’ from the UK. A look at what is ahead for Counter Currents Publishing in 2020. They are going to be moving away from book publishing, and their podcast is coming back. One should vacation in Eastern Europe to give his amygdala a break.

By way of Isegoria, be an accidental moderate or be mediocre. A look at the coincidence of guns homicides and suicides. A list of the most popular posts of 2019. An answer to the question: Is it possible that Hollywood movies actually reduce crime?

Morgoth’s Review writes on the strange death of libertarianism, and in video form too:

The Orthosphere begins the week with a look at Erich Neumann’s work Origins and History of Consciousness, and his thoughts on societal decay. A look at the life of Hubert Bland, and what he can teach us about Church Going (it’s part of a complete life, after all).

Z Man on the most fertile ground for con-artists and grifters: the Internet. A great post on how to get involved locally in the Dissident Right, reach out to its ever growing ranks, and grow its numbers. He does a Year In Review, pontificates on the worth of predictions, and looks back at his predictions for 2019, along with his 2020 predictions about Brexit and US politics. He then ponders Futurism, asking why it has disappeared, and finding its in part because no one likes the tribal conflict that’s coming. His weekly Z Blog Power Hour podcast is on pushback and commentary on his predictions post from last week. He also discusses the recent Ramzpaul tweet on ‘weirdos’ in Right wing movements, and discusses how they can be harmful to these groups.

Zero Anthropology does a very extensive review of 2020, with summaries for each month and a plethora of links to articles from across the Internet.

William Briggs ongoing translation of the Summa Contra Gentiles continues with Summary Against Modern Thought: Proper Ends. Guest poster Ianto Watt with a “if I had a second best article of the week” worthy post on the unification of Christian churches as a sign that the last bastion against Globalism is falling. RTWT. A Year in Review, where he lists his Top Ten favourite posts, and the readers’ Top Ten as well. A call for your predictions for 2020. How well did he and his concerned commenters with their 2019 predictions? Find out here. A look at the use of diversity statement requirements in UC system hiring. You’ll never guess which class of people get completed eliminated from the sample job competition. To finish the week, a troubling This Week In Doom: California School Free-For-All Edition.

Ramzpaul does a decade in review:

Jim posts on the Creeping Coup, or how all the illegal activities of the Dems amount to a coup in any case.

American Sun on the ongoing impeachment drama…it’s getting lamer by the day, like a burro with a broken leg that should be put down. On how modern academia and Noam Chomsky compare to the pro-wrestling business. An overview of populism’s rise in the West: The Populist Monkey Wrench for the International Order. A very good post on social humiliation explaining the conduct of our Lefty betters towards us, The Feasts of Shame:

Who dreams of sexually humiliating their political opponent the way that many of these Democrats do in their anti-Trump cartoons and memes? Who engages in sadomasochistic fantasies of their political opponents, an act tinged in performative violence, other than conquerors? Normal Americans value their right to bear arms and the American culture of having the right to do as you please, shoot guns, eat red meat, have big open spaces with big houses, and have a nice, normal family. The process of humiliation is key to this, whether people want to believe that or not. They often get it backwards because their brains are poisoned by complex ideology so they complicate this with explanations. They puzzle over why those with power want to destroy what normal Americans value when the answer is a simple one.

 

Because it’s something you value.

 

They care because you care.

… …

 

Our society is a shameful spectacle.

 

It’s been a long way to get here and I fear we have so much further to go. People who thought they were born with a national birthright are fast discovering that not only is that not the case, but that there are psychic horrors in store for anyone who isn’t with the present program. Hierarchy exists, has always existed, and will always exist. The revolutionary equalizers require a perpetual passion play of oppression being played out where those assigned as oppressors at birth are trampled down to keep the dead nation’s blood agitated instead of settling in its corpse. It starts with broadcasting Trump’s Red Hats being brutalized on every media platform and helpless to stop it. Power mewls, then smirks.

 

Every restless man wishes he lived in a time when he could die for something. Every wounded man wishes he lived in a time when he could live for something. When your world feels like a spiritual wasteland covered in a thousand invisible barriers, what is any one person supposed to do? “Nothing to kill or die for,” as the maudlin peace ballad goes, but what’s worse is when you feel like there’s nothing to struggle or live for. That is the hidden aspect of shame and humiliation. Degrade them so far that a pointless death might be preferable to a pointless, but painful, life. It won’t be, but they might shame you into thinking it. They will shame you into thinking there is no hope to restore the man to what he once was and was supposed to be. They will shame you into drowning yourself for a greater good that isn’t even real.

If I had a “post of the year award”, that one is it. Do RTWT. American Sun closes out the week with Five Friday Reads: On Towards the ’20s.

Evolutionist X begins a multi-part review of the book Dignity by Chris Arnade, which looks at Back Row America and the lives of those who live in poverty, by fortune or fate.

For a laugh, Razib Khan gets trolled or… it could be real. Either way, the attack is so lame it’s funny as hell. Check out the comments too.

The House of Representatives voted for impeachment this week. Amerika sees it as a sign of a fracturing nation. RottenChestnuts sees it is a symptom and a feature of democracy. Vanishing American II asks: Where Do We Go From Here? Z Man explains that the impeachment is a symptom that US democracy is not what it seems.

The Brexit Bill passes, after Boris Johnson crushes it in the UK election. Occidental Dissent was the first to comment. People starved to death in the streets, hospitals shut down, the police and army were overwhelmed, there was pillage, rapine, and rape everywhere, and guys in stud leather and metal platting were killing women and children for petrol. Oh wait, that did not actually happen!

Now being serious, it will be interesting to see how it all unfolds early next year. I think the EU is much more likely to suffer as a result of Brexit, as other members will start leaving as well. Will the UK move towards a trade deal with the US or its Commonwealth co-nations (Australia and Canada are the friends with the best benefits). Next on my wish list for the UK: let the expulsions being.

Amerika starts the week with Brett’s Rule: “It states that whatever people tell you as narrative is not true, but whatever they act on when they have something to gain is, at least in their eyes.” An important consequence:

In the grips of a Narrative, most people go into denial by affirming the Narrative. It tells them something comforting, namely that they do not need to change, least of all to undergo the difficult process of self-actualization, maturation, and confronting the need for transcendental purpose, or that which discovers an order larger than the self, finds beauty in it, and seeks to maximize and nurture it. The denialists demand conformity to the methods used by everyone else so that no one must face the end of the temporary stability and pleasant distraction of denial. If everyone conforms and does the same thing, it seems as if the System is succeeding and the Narrative is absolute religious and scientific truth.

RTWT.

More from Amerika, on poor sleep quality. Amerika speaks to something BAP also spoke about this week: memes used to reduce morale among the dissidents. In Amerika’s case, the White Genocide meme. On the necessity of hierarchies, by way of example in corporate organization. Is it a white pill? A black pill? How We Can Escape Civilization Collapse. If we do not stop our current course, the results will be Auschwitz Times A Million.

Favourite Periscope of the week: Friday’s.

Bronze Age Pervert’s Caribbean Rhythms podcast this week is a total body detox, with a little thrown in about demoralizing the whites.

Audacious Epigone notes that impeachment is not working (for the Dems, at least). Here’s a look at demographic opinions on banning porn. He compares our current situation to Middle Earth in the Tolkien mythology. Some thoughts on concerns about anti-Semitism, along with a post on deviance from the Holocaust narrative, and how future non-whites probably won’t care.

Vulture of Critique with an extensive collection of links, summarized as ‘x just gotta x’.

Just Thomism on a modern psychological problem: viewing people as angels with bodies as pets. A look at Christ as technology, and the difference between that and human technology.

The Myth of the 20th Century crew does a year in review on this week’s podcast, with special guests Borzoi and Titus: the year in which the conspiracy theory went mainstream. It’s long, at 4+ hours, but well worth it. Do LTWT.

From Nature: a sharply worded letter of concern that the word ‘supremacy’ be all raycis! Steve Sailer comments here.

RottenChestnuts looks at what might just put western civilization in its grave: Dramarama. He also looks at the state, how it has been an object of worship in modern times, and the need to desacralize it: The Least-Worst Government? RTWT

Counter Currents with an eye opening story about what white blue-collar men face in their working world. A review of David Hoggan’s The Forced War, a second look at the causes of World War II. Hey Canucks, they’re coming for your hockey now. A post on Kshatriya, one of the four varna of Hindu society, and what it can teach us. From the Bhagavata Gita:

Kshatriya never flees from the war, he shows bravery, skill, chivalry and patience in the face of war. Donation to the society and protecting citizens (Kshatra duty) are the norms of a Kshatriya.

For content producers, Reactionary Thought posts a video on how to migrate your videos to BitChute. He also looks at internet platforms changing their terms of service and what it may portend.

Courtesy of Occidental Dissent, an interesting video on why modern architecture is not good for us:

Malcolm comments on JMSmith’s Orthosphere article last week on Reason as a tool, and sometimes a dangerous one. He reposts his prior thoughts on the political Right as a bulwark against entropy and decay.

Lord Black of Crossharbour sees Boris Johnson’s election as a pivotal move away from the lethargy of western Europe to a better alliance with the USA and the big Commonwealth nations.

John Derbyshire looks at two incidents of non-reporting of race in the MSM. They sure don’t seem to want to identify perpetrators of crimes when they are certain races. Which seems odd to me since race is simply a social construct…right? This week’s Radio Derb podcast is on building the wall (slowly) and US political matters.

Thomas F. Burtonneau on one of his favourite Russian songs (also Stalin’s favourite song):

By way of Isegoria, Orwell’s thoughts on loyalty, and how rebelling against an establishment may be supporting it.

The Scholar’s Stage on the life of Mormon President Thomas Monson, and how his NYT obituary shows you should never trust journalists.

Z Man on the feminism of the Right which now promotes the same ideas as 1st and 2nd wave feminism, just under the guise of tough and gun toting sexy girlzzz! (Ramzpaul responds here.) He looks at the Fed’s recent $500 million move, the repo (repurchase) market as a cause, and its place in a financial house of cards. (Audacious Epigone responds and develops it further. RTWT for both.) On Right Wing Cosmopolitanism, and its blind spots, which explains why Conservative Inc. cannot figure out why Boris and Donald are winning. He considers the various ways societies can be held together, and how the US was and is held together: Fear, Force & Convenience. This week’s Z Blog Power Hour features Z Man catching up on audience correspondence.

Razib Khan diagnoses Twitter behaviour.

Black Pigeon Speaks discusses Paris Syndrome, among other things:

Jim raises a good point about not using the words your enemy uses, lest your meaning end up being attributed to their meaning. To follow through on his advice is to need great courage to label their words as what they really are. Lord Hamilton once said something like…such an attitude is a sure way to have a mob trounce you about 15 minutes after you start. Jim also looks at Libertarianism, compares is to classical liberalism, and finds little difference.

An excellent essay at the Claremont Review of Books on the invention of victim categories in the United States, in particular with Mexican Americans Hispanics. It appears the creation of victim groups is a feature, not a bug, of democracy. We are seeing this dynamic play out to perfection in Canada. Our first proponent of victim classes as political blocks was Pierre Trudeau (father of current Prime Minister Justin). He made the ability to bribe victim classes with gibs and favourable government treatment a permanent pillar of Canadian law (see section 15(2) of the Charter).

Shylock Holmes looks at crimethink, and a ways to defend yourself against accusations of it.

The Zerothposition considers impeachment, compares it to the award ‘Hero of the Soviet Union’ under the old Soviet republics, and then makes a prediction on how abuse of impeachment may lead to Caesarism. RTWT.

Thanks to many generous readers, William Briggs is back on Sundays with new sources for the ongoing Summa Contra Gentiles translation: Summary Against Modern Thought: Sin in Demons. Greta Thunberg threatens to put world leaders up against a wall. For most world leaders, I’m fine with that. A “scientific study” that confirmed cops killing blacks reduces black birth-weight is retracted because…it was wrong. A special (((This Week In Doom: God’s Chosen People Edition))). J.K. Rowling gets attacked for defending a women who said that sex is biologically determined (Occidental Dissent also comments.) He closes up the week with This Week In Doom – USS Harvey Milk Edition.

PA Blog notes Nick Fuentes nailing it on the Capitalism/Socialism fake dichotomy:

 

Steve Sailer with another bit of news I thought was fake: Pakistani lawyers lay siege to a hospital and attack Doctors in retaliation for previous attacks. The State of California cannot afford to keep its streets safe and car windows intact. He has an excellent review, with a much needed lesson in false accusations, of Clint Eastwood’s new film, Richard Jewell, over at Taki Magazine. He looks at the response to Ms. Rowling’s defence of a woman who insists sex is biological, with a good theory about why we are seeing all this gender dysphoria madness. Another response from the WaPo, but do scroll to the end and read the caption in the screenshot.

Evolutionist X discusses the economics of 3D printing. She also has a links post with an open thread and a request for New Years resolutions.

American Sun on the real impetus driving the impeachment process: CIA spooks embedded in Congress and the Deep State. Henry Delacroix looks at the history of the Afrikaner mannerbund Broederbond, and the lessons it can teach you in building your own. On why the Star Wars franchise had to be emasculated, from guest poster Bad Billy Pratt. On John C. Calhoun, the US Constitution, and the reason why Somalis must settle in Minnesota: to wreck concepts of identity, opening the door for domination of the US population as a whole. A look at opium and drug epidemics generally, and lessons the US could learn from Mao Zedong. To cap the week: Five Friday Reads. It asks a question worth looking into: Can the US (the West, Canada, perhaps even North America) have its Reconquista?

At the Orthosphere, JMSmith discusses the lady who cannot return our love or show us mercy: the earth. He follows it up discussing the Blight of Telmarine Science, a science which robs us of our spirits. Some poetry on the consequences of wrongspeak: The FEAR. A fine follow-up about the meek maintaining order in 19th century Texas.

Filed under: ‘now be a good goy and watch this’:

Occidental Dissent notes that Christianity does not require equal love for everyone. A brief review of the long and seedy (is there any other?) neo-con / US intelligence service connection. An interesting post on why Luther was not the origin of Liberalism.

In the канадец Soviet Socialist Republic, Le Dauphin sends marching orders to four members of his cabinet to draft hate speech removal regulations for Canada. It will be interesting to see where this goes. He’s got a minority government, so he has to watch his step. This may go nowhere. Note the wording though: “regulations”. Regulations made by the Canadian government are not subject to debate by Parliament, but rather are passed by the Governor-in-Council, which will basically be Trudeau’s hand picked cabinet. Like most of his talk, this might amount to nothing. If it is passed, the only chance left to get rid of it would be by the courts and a challenge under the Charter, a cost not easily borne by average Joe. Maybe the internet service providers, or big tech, will challenge it, or maybe they won’t. Our media is already subsidized by Trudeau, so you can count on them to acquiesce all while trumpeting free speech. Trudeau demonstrates that he is a wanna-be tyrant who will make Canada his personal fiefdom. Congrats to all the sheeple who keep him in power; you’re getting the government you deserve.

Boris Johnson wins the UK election in a landslide. Labour gets crushed…flat. Good riddance. Ulster and Scotland are not happy, appearing to want to remain in the EU. Occidental Dissent on the Left in the UK losing its mind, the most common outcome when they encounter reality, and a post-mortem on the death of the Labour Party.

Throne, Altar, Liberty looks at the damaging relationship between environmentalism and socialism:

To understand why socialism is not a friend of true environmentalism, it is important that we understand the nature of socialism. Socialism is not being compassionate and charitable to the poor. Socialism is not “standing up for the working man.” Socialism is not the application of the classical idea of restraint to human greed. The many different socialisms that arose in the nineteenth century all sprang out of the same common idea: that the private ownership of property is responsible for most or all human suffering and must therefore be eradicated.

This week’s Five Friday Reads is particularly good. I thought the Afghanistan War was useless, and it’s shocking to discover that so did the people fighting it. Read both the article and the thread on it. They also point to this City Journal article on the costs of the Social Justice Movement, not in dollar terms, but I suppose in the immolation of meaning.

Dr. Spencer gets technical and discuses climate models that are not lining up with temperature data.

Jim discusses how progressivism is like the AIDS virus. He also discusses Good and Evil. From the comments:

Jim:

 

This post gives the definition of good and evil – that the words are just not an arbitrary assignment of the world into “us” and “them”.

 

This post was provoked by a complaint in another forum about me using the words “good” and “evil” – such childish, old fashioned, ignorant bigoted words that dismiss entire categories of people as less than human and shut down intelligent discussion between properly sophisticated people.

 

I revisited the holiness spiral, since that is what is turning the state religion evil, and addressed the Old and New Testaments to show that the definition presented here is consistent with long established tradition.

Both are RTWTs.

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

Endeavour continues his Lies of the Enlightenment Series with a hard look at the concept of human rights:

Physics be raycis: Steve Sailer reviews a xirl science physics paper which discusses how the exclusion of black women from science contradicts the theory of General Relativity. (Go look at the picture of the ‘white-adjacent’ oppressors.) Mr. Briggs also comments, quoting extensively. Soon, we won’t need large particle accelerators to create Higg’s bosons, we’ll just need to check our hadron privilege.

Alf with spot-on wisdom about women and sex.

Anatoly Karlin looks at the Flynn Effect in Russia.

Al fin on the potential medical uses of psychedelics. On the consumption and inventory of oil and natural gas and how the US is poised to become THE supplier for world. We Albertasheiks have been aware of this for some time. The US has since I can remember aimed to control the world supply, but now is going to be a serious supplier as well. It’s not clear how long this will last. What is very clear to me is that as US production has increased, so has funding for propaganda against the oil sands in Alberta. It is a failing of our nation and sovereignty that Ottawa has bought right into it. Al fin also has a great essay on what science is, and remember, it’s not a database it’s a process.

Razib Khan on the end of the scientific culture:

This post is not an appeal. Or a warning. History marches on. I believe the time of wolves is at hand. Science will become magic. Prepare yourself. Who has the power? Shelter with them.

Malcolm quotes Attorney General Barr on the Russia collusion investigation and looks forward to John Durham’s investigation. He also considers brilliant people from the past who no one seems to know about anymore.

The Zeroth Position with a detailed essay on the mechanics and dynamics of Cancel Culture.

Murdoch Murdoch has an Ask Me Anything episode #3.

Counter Currents has a story about encounters with feminists and the barriers they place around themselves. On Nazis versus Commies, as to who was worse, and how the term is used by both the Right and Left. A look at the anti-Semitic roots of the UK labour movement. They also take a hilarious look at modern poetry by reviewing the current issue of Poetry.

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

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

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

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

Just Thomism considers what love and belonging to another means.

William Briggs announces his sources for his ongoing translation of Summa contra Gentiles has been taken down. (I’ve been identifying it in error as the Summa Theologica for about a year. D’oh!) A gift for all just in time for Christmas: Briggs’s Guide to Modern Art. It’s all duct tape and ripe fruit from here. Conservatives do not want to ban porn. He closes the week with This Week In Doom: Disney/Marvel Cash In on Perversion Edition.

Z Man asks us to Never Forget, as our media is constantly introducing new scandals which keep us distracted from the things we should be concerned about. Z Man likes to talk about the parallels between our current political situation in the West and the French Revolution. He’s found a very poignant comparison and I worry he’s right. Our rulers seem to have completely disconnected from what actually concerns their subjects, in favour of maintaining their hold on power. For those aspiring to rule, liberal democracy has become nothing more than a never ending marathon of constant campaigning to the next election. Actual issues which need to be addressed are ignored. On the Community, another name for the ruling Cabal in Washington. On fiat money as an example of how our modern malaise is not about institutions which are bad, but rather, that those institutions are being wielded for bad purposes. The UK is finally dealing with the crime of the century, people making racist gestures, and dealing with them harshly. Will the next step be dealing with the south Asian gangs who use white girls for underage prostitution rings? Oh, wait, wrong racism. My bad. This weeks Z Blog Power Hour podcast is the Ben Shapiro show, and no, Ben is not a guest, but an piñata.

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

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Last Thursday was Thanksgiving in the United States. Happy belated Thanksgiving America!

Occidental Dissent notes the Left cannot leave it alone: on the Deconstruction of Thanksgiving. They also note various attitudes towards Thanksgiving, some good, some so wokely! Counter Currents suggests to whom and what to be thankful for. Steve Sailer has a fantastic topic for conversations at family gatherings. Z Man’s Happy Thanksgiving brings back the old ritual of beating Libertarians. Malcolm expresses thanks and gratitude in these uncertain times. Want more? Counter Currents lists some of its past articles on the holiday. By way of Isegoria, a list of all the Thanksgiving Posts. Audacious Epigone looks at who is celebrating by demographic. Best wishes from RottenChestnuts:

So be thankful for what you have, comrades-in-arms, for as long as you are blessed to still have it. Western Civilization has survived worse than this. We’ll be back… but the night is long, and twilight is rushing in. Be thankful for the light while it’s here. Happy Thanksgiving, and God bless.

Occidental Dissent reports that the Church of England blames Christianity for the Holocaust. Vladimir Putin compared the EU to the USSR, and predicts its collapse within ten years. On the pozzing of video games. It’s about bloody time: Democracies appear to be on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Why is China now a near superpower? Because Washington allowed it. Sascha Baron Cohen is wrong, as Wiemar Germany shows us censorship does not work (at least, for what he claims it does). On the malleability of Christianity over time as the dominant culture shifts. The strength of diversity is demonstrated once again in a London bridge stabbing. Shortly thereafter, the scene is repeated in the Hague. More details emerged afterwards. In the US, democracy does not exist for the working class and the donor class has the real power. They’ve found another extinct humanoid species in South Africa, bringing the total count for humanoid species to nine.

A diversion, a hike I’m hoping to do in a couple of years:

Razib Khan on Chinese Identity, genetics, and culture.

Alf reposts an old post on male archetypes, which he develops further looking at Jimian paths to power.

Cambria Will Not Yield on the perils of the hardened heart.

Jim looks at Trump’s efforts to drain the swamp, and resisting a Democratic colour revolution.

Ricardo Duchesne comments on immigrants as an instrument of societal undermining over at Council of European Canadians.

John Derbyshire’s Radio Derb podcast is a grab bag (at VDare), but do LTWT, if only for his bit on the Penis Museum in Reykjavík and the new Vagina Museum in London:

The Myth of the 20th Century crew has a special guest this week, Dr. Matthew Rafael, a Russian history and Orthodoxy scholar. They discuss the Russian October Revolution, its ramifications and compares the Soviet Empire to the modern American Empire. As usual, it’s very good so do LTWT.

The Zeroeth Position looks at economic fallacies of holiday shopping and Black Friday.

By way of Isegoria, posts with an excerpt from Scott Adams new Book Loserthink. An account of the gear carried by US forces in Laos during the Vietnam War.

Zero Anthropology reviews Giants: The Global Power Elite, by Peter Phillips, which attempts to answer the question: who is actually in power?

Throne, Altar, Liberty looks at Canada’s shift on the Israeli/Palastinian conflict, prompted by our Prime Minister, Captain Airhead. He also makes short work of arguments for veganism.

trump-tweet-rocky-meme

Al fin with a grab bag of butt-snaking medical robots, space factories, and the green energy fiasco. On why men are funnier than women…because they have to be. Trump becomes a hero meme in Hong Kong after signing two bills meant to support human rights there.

Mencius Moldbug continues his new series at American Mind: The Clear Pill, Part 2 of 5: A Theory of Pervasive Error.

PA Blog on a meme worth posting (via Heartiste). He notes some parents are starting be models and provide guidance to their kids again…good news for GenZ, good news for us all.

American Sun provides a quick overview of the narrative management techniques in Impeachment Deux: Ukrainegate. 7 More Ways to Ride the Tiger, or how a young man can get buy in this crazy, doxing, cancel culture world. The Left hates you, and wants you to suffer, so act accordingly: Why Aren’t the Commissars Satisfied? A look at our future with surveillance so prevalent it creates a near Panopticon. An old essay from Landry on why the US should go to war with the Mexican cartels. An excellent post on the dynamics of the patronage economy.

Morgoth’s Review considers his options in the upcoming UK election. It’s blackpilled:

This week’s Bronze Age Pervert’s Caribbean Rhythms podcast is on art appreciation and fraud appreciation.

Just Thomism looks at justifications for transexualism. Also, metaphors for man as the image of God.

From the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, why evolution is wrong because it makes you afraid of the wrong things: “Evolution makes you scared of: Immediate short-term threats…What actually kills you: Climate change (and other long-term threats).” To quote the magnificent TL;DR “citation(s) needed.”

VDH gives an overview of the impeachment proceedings.

Malcolm with a service notice, and he talks about impeachment a bit. He follows up with his thoughts on Modlbug’s latest Clear Pill post, with more follow-up here. JMSmith (of Orthosphere fame?) comments on status in academia. He sees hand prints in his neighborhood and it reminds him how human nature has not changed much.

Glaciar Perito Moreno (south face), Patagonia, Argentina

Z Man looks at the impeachment proceedings from the last week. He notes the presence of a certain group. On the Democratic Presidential candidates and the signs of US political decline. He tries to watch College Football on TV, which goes as badly as expected. It does provide some very good lessons on why you should cut ties with the ‘Idiot Box‘. For his weekly Z Blog Power Hour podcast, he looks at the mailbag and answers questions from viewers.

Audacious Epigone notes that it’s Zoomers who seem more supportive of gun rights.

Counter Currents on Sascha Baron Cohen’s calls for censorship online. Who was that guy who sang “Throw the Jews down the well”? Borat somebody… On why you should stop shopping for Christmas. Well, this explains a lot of what is happening in colleges and academia: a review of Herb Childress’ The Adjunct Underclass. They compare and contrast views on ecology of the Left and Right.

RottenChestnuts looks at the differences between revolts and revolutions; Part II, where he applies his findings to the English Civil War.

William Briggs begins the week with the customary Summary Against Modern Thought: The Power Of Psychics & Witches Is Not Morally Good. On the march to make university education worthless Equality: Universities the World Over Eliminate Testing. It has been reported that the Spooks are forcing their employees to wear LGBTQ affirming lanyards. It’s probably a psyop. HORROR! TERROR! On Black Friday, the Consumers rise, consuming everything in their path! (It’s an article so frightening that Señor Blanco and Liberae Sunt Nostrae Cogitatores deny all liability for any harm to readers who click that link.) This Week In Doom – Sacrificed Sheep Edition finishes the seven day march. He looks at a study claiming candles cause cognitive performance to decline:

But now my co-equal, or even main, goal is for you to develop less respect for science. To not love any scientific announcement with the same ardor you might have done in the past. Science, though it sure is swell, is no longer the shining example of intellectual acuity it once was. There are still areas in science and technology free from the currents, but they are decreasing. Besides, too much love of science leads to scidolatry.

Lord Black of Crossharbour on cancelling the Washington impeachment debacle that might as well be a TV series called Impeachment.

Guillaume Durocher with lessons from the life of Charles de Gaulle.

Setting the Record Straight has a novel take on the Trump Presidency, describing it in ancient terms as the struggle by a figurehead to actually take power, opposed by a dominant priestly caste: Chronicle of King Donald I. Well done Mr. Maclear.

Wrath of Gnon:

National Review has a long and detailed article about misinformation and bad faith in the medical profession on transgenderism.

Amerika on the current woke trend of population control. Admit it: criminality is genetic. Thoughts on pipe tobacco, and its marketing as a reflection on our society. On the philosophical shift after the US Civil War, embodied in the Civil Rights Act and later, the 14th Amendment: in the year 1866. On the purity spirals of the Left and Right in the US. I knew it! Trump is LITERALLY (doing something similar to stuff done by) Hitler. On a cultural wave that could save the west. A quick look at how diversity killed the Rome, and how we are in a similar boat, plus a look at Nikole Hannah-Jones and the concept that racism is a symptom of diversity. This week’s news and Pipe Meditations, with a good introduction on the waning of the West. On Market Socialism, the dominant ideology in the West.

I encourage all to have a look at Amerika’s Periscope postings, which provide summaries of and links to interesting articles for your review. They are a weekday daily thing it seems. My favourite this week was Thursday’s. Here are Monday’s, Tuesday’s, Wedndesday’s, and Friday’s. (Too many references to summarize here. It’s well worth your time to check out daily or put in your RSS feed.)

Evolutionist X looks at how tall humans can grow, and what the limits are. She also looks at Finnish genetics, language and pre-history.

Patriactionary on the Thin Line Flags, or modified US Stars and Stripes as a form of identity for various state services. Seems odd. On why you should be interested in the film Ford v. Ferrari, because it’s pissing off all the right people. Chick-fil-A turns out to have donated money to some shady groups, including the SPLC.

81xbwq8xrql1778573786294998348.jpgSteve Sailer on a very short review on race differences. He poses a good theory on why Greta Thunberg, among others, have so many diagnosed mental disorders. There was a fourth spy in the USA’s Manhattan Project which contributed to the Soviet’s leap into nuclear weaponry and the Cold War. Hungary’s marriage and birth incentive programs seem to be off to a good start. His weekly Taki’s Mag column is a review of Michel Houellebecq’s Serotonin. David Frum accuses Tucker Carlson of being a shill for a white nationalist alliance centered on Moscow. Get back on your pills Mr. Frum. This kind of shit shows Canucks are also capable of sheer lunacy: pereceived weakening of their privileged status is killing white people. Speaking of, on declining life expectancy in America. He notes a very entertaining conspiracy theory for the 1999 Chinese Embassy bombing in Belgrade.

 

I’m not sure how I got to this, but an interesting essay take down of the book Why We Sleep. Read it just to dispel some very common myths about health hazards from lack of sleep.

The Orthosphere begins the week looking at the origin of the terms ‘glower’ and ‘leer’, as related to Greta Thunberg, and on climate strikes lacking conviction. They ask: is America a vampire? A look at Rosalind Murray’s The Good Pagan’s Failure.

To close, Clutch covers my favourite CCR tune:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Prime Minister Trudeau announces his new cabinet:

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

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

Migration is a goal of the young.

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

… …

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

We have made ourselves a paradise and find it wanting.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Titania McGrath reviews the latest Charlie’s Angels reboot:

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

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

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

James True on how US politics is like professional wrestling.

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

Capture

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

VDH on the coming ‘1984’ election:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Vanishing American II in defense of fundamentalists.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

RTWT.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Frank Vaughan summarizes our anger:

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 10/27/19

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

 

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Patriactionary posted this hymn on Canada’s election day:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Well … a person can dream, can’t he?

Onto the summaries.

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

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

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

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

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

Jessica Yaniv, who made a human rights case of not being able to get xir scrotum waxed, is held to have used xir transgender status for extortion. However, the Tribunal Notes that the extortees were all POC, implying that if they had been white, the result might have been different. Also, a Texas judge overrules a jury and says that a father can have a say on whether his son is chemically castrated in the name of transphilia.

Anatoly Karlin talks about the Katechon Hypothesis for resolving the Fermi Paradox, about our universe as a simulation, and how you don’t want to overload the simulator, or the ‘Architect’ might CTRL-ALT-DEL you.

Faith Goldy interviews Ricardo Duchesne on censorship of dissenting voices on immigration in Canada:

Counter Currents: You’re a dissident or national populist, so what can you do now? An argument on why the Dissident Right should be secular. Interesting argument, although I don’t think we’ll get far without offering some kind of substitute for the Progressive Faith currently running the West.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In that article, he has a link to a list the top 10 countries with the most beautiful women (which totally pussies out by combining USA and Canada). I think such lists are highly personal, and invite all to discuss their preferences in the comments below.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Audacious Epigone reconsiders the new ice age scare in the last century. Also, on confidence in American institutions by demographics, and by age. If that’s not a sign of an impending revolution…

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

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

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

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

A request for my readers: let me know if you have any suggestions for books on the history of the Dutch/Boer/Afrikaner White peoples of southern Africa. It’s not a very popular topic these days. Thanks in advance.

William Briggs gets black-pilled on Canuckistan in the prior This Week In Doom. He sees the mire Canadians live in. What’s troubling is that Canuckistanis are oblivious to what Mr. Briggs, looking on from over the border, can see very clearly. On Sunday, he graces us with his ongoing translation of the Summa Theologia: Summary Against Modern Thought – Not All Prayers Are Granted. A guest post by Gaudia Certaminis discusses the Trans Movement. (Of note: The Trans movement is not grassroots, and not even astroturfed, but rather creates (by media, propaganda, and preying on the vulnerable) many of the very damaged people its agenda says must be protected.) Mr. Briggs makes a video on statistics and the epidemiologist fallacy. On the heat in cities and the ‘the poor feel it more’ fallacy. On Greta Thunberg, Swedish climate change warrior, who instead of spreading her ignorant attitudes about Climate ChangeTM should be having a childhood. To end the week, This Week In Doom – Emasculating Statues Edition.

Also, Mr. Briggs makes his semi-annual request for donations. There are other ways to support his blog too, so check it out, as his output is well worth supporting.

Link’s new book Southern Crucible: Making of an American Region. On the ways conservatives avoid seeing the coming dissolution of the West: Ketmat and the Murti-Bing Pill. An interesting piece on how the Civil War and the Reconstruction were a second founding for the US, and a follow-up on what “rights” meant before and after the US Civil War. For Southern Nationalists, a lesson in optics and how it is the visions of the elite that need to be changed to change a society. On the “perpetual state of social revolution” of liberalism.

From PA Blog, poetry from Poland: The Reply. He reposts a comment which provides a very likely scenario for Red Flag Laws.

Also, on self-mutilation generally, as a triumph of cultural Marxism. Never mind the cab ride in Edmonton, just walk down the street in that city. You’ll see many, many tattooed and pierced specimens. Such displays remind me not of the body as a canvass. More like the body as an abandoned building, vandalized and spray painted with graffiti. I would call it a triumph over the spirit of man. It has convinced people to devalue their minds, souls, faith and bodies utterly.

I’m sure he remembers no negative interaction.

Canuckistan is Clownworld and our election is a five ring circus. Political parties are scrambling to disavow their connection to Faith Goldy, while trying to tar one another with the same brush. I see a politician meeting Goldy, and then having the balls to dismiss any resulting criticism, as a plus. Their purity spiral is no surprise though, as when all parties are starting to become one homogeneous mass, they are bound to hold a common set of standards. Note that according to the article, Le Dauphin tried to get Faith and her two friends to go with him to a suite party at the Chateau Laurier…five years after he married his current wife.

“Vote for me and this will be Canada’s future.”

And then, just coincidentally I’m sure, while speaking of Trudeau and tar, he gets busted for wearing blackface back in 2001, and then again for two incidents in the 90s. Even Al Jazeera covered this one. What baffles me (and Tucker Carlson) is the shock and surprise in the MSM. Maybe it’s just feigned on their part. It’s been fairly obvious from the start, however, this guy is just a con artist, playing the Progressive Messiah (a persona that largely tries to copy Obama). Trudeau will use this event to justify his progressive agenda, by arguing that Canada, and particularly white European Canada, needs to acknowledge its racism, and Ottawa is justified in restricting our thoughts and actions to fix it. We all get tarred because Le Dauphin wore blackface. Honk, honk.

Look, if you want to punish Justin Le Premier, ignore him. Just the lack of attention will no doubt feel like torture to him. Steve Sailer has some much needed fun with it. Dave Rubin discusses it on Tucker Carlson’s show. It’s short, but with good questions for normies, so do WTHT.

As for the impact on the Canadian federal election, I defer to Heartiste:

Indeed, Heartiste is prescient, with commentators saying that Trudeau should get a pass, that the real problem is that Canadians as a whole, and in particular, white men, are the real racists.

Z Man on why the Left came to dominate in the 20th century. On the Custodial State and America’s coming social credit system. He gives an explanation of the current political imbalances and stalemate in the US as a failure of the Constitution. A revamp is needed to deal with the modern global forces that rule without responsibility. Wondering what the next civil war might look like? Z Man has some ideas. He has an interesting post of the quality of football coaches, the lack of ‘diversity’ in coaching, and what the Coaching Market tells us about free markets. He discusses the hidden taxes we all pay, and not necessarily the ones you might think:

The tax is everywhere. Turn on the television to watch a sportsball game and you will be inundated with commercials for race mixing, homosexuals and girl power. What should be a few hours vegging out in front of the tube to watch men play a game, quickly turns into an aggravation that saps your strength. TV ratings have declined for sports, because for many normal people, the tax is now exceeding the benefit. Staring blankly at the wall is more relaxing than another lecture on girl power.

This is the massive hidden tax on normal people. The price of tolerating Progressive lunatics is the stress of crumbling community, the irritation of endless propaganda and the bitterness than comes with self-censorship. Everyone’s life is diminished because a small group of people impose a heavy tax burden on the rest of us. The rise of dissident politics is not a reaction to Progressive lunacy, so much as it is the result of carrying the hidden tax burden. Normal white men are tired of paying the damned tax.

He also posts his weekly Z Blog Power Hour podcast.

Scholar’s Stage discusses how public opinion appears to radically change in authoritarian states.

Alf brings us up to date on progress in the Netherlands. They’re starting to tackle the horrible inequality in atmospheric gases by controlling nitrogen emissions. Really, at 78% of our air, it’s time for N2 to check its diatomic privilege. Diatomism says atoms bond into pairs, and only atoms of the same element. But what about those involuntarily monoatomic (Inmon) gases, or mixed element gases? What about those atoms that are Perio-fluid, or refuse to accept socially constructed covalent/ionic bonding customs? Due to its high bonding energy (‘power’), nitrogen will simply not acknowledge the lived experiences of other gases. This does not withstand any smell test. It’s time to pass gas laws that recognize diversity in air is our strength.

Malcolm notes that at the NYT it has become impossible to tell the difference between news and satire. He also discusses Operation Cassandra, which would have made legal trouble for Hezbollah, but for interference by the White House. Malcolm would also like a break from the #OrangeManBad narrative, now being used to explain away Joe Biden’s willful interference in a corruption investigation in the Ukraine.

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 09/15/19

383px-Flag_of_Alberta.svg

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.

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.

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.
