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.

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.

Morgoth’s Review asks if the modern city destroy’s men:

(Occidental Dissent agrees here.)

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.

Patriactionary on the US Department of Agriculture’s newest trading partner nation: Wakanda. Honk-honk.

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.

Titania McGrath, so wokely:

Amerika begins the week with Outliers (#72), a collection of articles that may have been passed over before, with commentary. Well worth looking at. A look at the Millennials, a generation that was isolated like no other before it. On why STEM has to die, you know, because it’s a search for reality, and reality does not care about feelings or equality. Not an endorsement for Tulsi Gabbard, except where she sends Kamala Harris packing. I like where Mr. Wilkinson goes with this: Understanding the Deeper Tao of The Brown M&Ms. Brett Stevens also releases a list of still active dissident blogs. A look at drug policy, and why anarchy needs (or means?) natural selection. A lesson from a command error before the Pearl Harbour bombing.

I encourage you all to look at Amerika’s Periscope postings, and put them in your RSS feed. They provide a great list of relevant articles every week day. This week’s favourite: Tuesday. Do go check out the others.

Over at the cleverly named Fake Nous, Michael Huemer explains why Intellectual Conformity is Adaptive, or why folks seem to avoid thinking as if it would kill them.

Some Canadiana: Council of European Canadians looks at Progressive hypocrisy in Canada. Looks like the writer, Stephen Summani, is not far from myself, either geographically or politically.

Gerry at Throne, Altar, Liberty discusses free speech and Holodomor versus Holocaust.

The Myth of the 20th Century crew talks about the Edmund Fitzgerald, a iron ore freighter that sank in bad weather in Lake Superior. They claim the sinking was a plot by Canadians. On behalf of Canada, yeah we totally sunk that ship, so give us the Northwest Angle and no one else gets hurt. Canada’s Gordon Lightfoot wrote a popular song about the sinking a year later:

By way of Isegoria, a look at how high stakes decisions under pressure are actually made. Discovering something new will likely get you accused of heresy. South Dakota is the wild west when it comes to deposits and trusts. (They have no rule against perpetuities! This just in: South Dakota law students report highest level of happiness.) Swedish conditions are appearing in Norway.

At Vanishing American II, a lament for civilized discourse, and a call to clean up our act and to cease profanity.

Razib Khan looks at DNA and genome sequencing for use in crime fighting, and the new non-identifying DNA Solves, a voluntary database for folks who want to help fight crime. I can think of many other uses this will eventually be put to and they’re not good. He also comments on the tendency to make certain topics sacred and unchallengable, with the latest example being the 1619 Project, an exercise in pure propaganda.

Guillaume Durocher on the life of the world’s most hated NEET: Hitler.

Evolutionist X considers diamond rings and how they became symbols of marriage. She looks at claims that America is not ‘full’ yet, and how that’s a bad standard to apply to a country

Throne and Altar on how one cannot be prepared to be doxxed, especially by the media and to your employer.

Morgoth’s Review looks at spin control after the London Bridge stabbings:

He also argues that nationality cannot be based on consumer preferences:

Steve Sailer eulogizes Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones, the latest sacrifices to Diversity, Inclusion and Equity (DIE), on London Bridge. Their deaths will not be in vain, and every time an imported career criminal makes my city a little less safe, and helps expand a no-go-zone, I’ll shed a tear for the people we sacrifice to make sure DIE…never dies.

Dr. Spencer looks at 2019 temperatures and comments on the ongoing Climate EmergencyTM.

PA Blog on the split in Generation X caused by cultural changes in the early 90s. Being of the border of the split, I have to say his idea has merit. He reviews the history of dissident blogging. On the mentality of police officers when facing protesters or various political alignments.

Matt Ridley (of The Red Queen fame) looks at the campaign to stop gas production by hydraulic fracturing in the UK. He also looks at the struggle over Golden Rice (genetically modified for carotene content). My preferred headline would be “Greenpeace wants Asian kids to go blind and die”.

At Reckonin’, Ayla Stewart departs from a public life, noting that actual conservatives may have to leave the internet.

Black Pigeon Speaks on why Japan rejects globalism for spiritual reasons:

GA Blog looks at Conditions for an Enduring Technostructural Civilization, which includes a look at Liberalism’s imposition of equality and denial of reality.

No summary needed: I’m a Teacher and a Waste of Money.

William Briggs begins the week with the ongoing Summa Contra Gentiles translation Summary Against Modern Thought: Intellectual Substances Causing Magic Aren’t Evil By Nature. He then looks at Harvard’s claim that as atmospheric CO2 increases, you get dumber. There are two classes of Climate ChangeTM advocates, Grifters and True Believers. The recent Lancet Climate report is an excellent case study to help you learn the difference. Another useful distinction is that the Grifters often have degrees and experience in communications and marketing. A little digging will reveal their work is purely about propagating the modern Climate CrisisTM narrative. CATHOLICS, confess your Eco-sins! (He’s not kidding.) He looks at two studies which used opinion surveys to discover that 1) air travel moves people around and causes CO2 and ‘N’ emissions, and 2) men like it when women hit on them, but women prefer being hit on by higher status men! I’m still reeling…as my entire world view…shattered, my reality…fragmented. I may never be able to type…without…excessive…ellipsis…ever again. He closes out the week with This Week in Doom: Folau’s Revenge.

Al fin on the China Model of governance as an explanation of their rise, but also of some severe problems. In OECD countries, most 15 year-olds are unable to tell opinion from fact.

Malcolm reblogs an Angelo Codevilla article on the inevitable US Civil War II. He takes a very deep dive into his axioms, considering the validity of Euclidian gemometry and atheism.

RottenChestnuts gives a short history of Gorbachev’s Perestroika under the Soviets, and finds analogues in the Democratic party today. He continues his posts on revolt versus revolution with Part III.

Z Man on the very aptly named Jim Snow laws, which amount to revenge on whitey. He looks at the rhetorical misdirection of Conservative Inc. in protecting the Progressive order. On the coming mobilization, or how whites are going to move away from diversity when it gets to be too much (as examples, blockbreaking then, and Californian migration to Nevada, Arizona and Idaho now). It doesn’t matter who ends up in the ruling class. If they are not trusted, then the masses will revolt. The best explanation for the Left’s behavior is that they are a hive mind. His weekly Z Blog Power Hour podcast is on the freak show of the Left.

Just Thomism with a great post on man’s place in nature, and the rejection of Hell in modern times:

The perfections of polite society developed with the construction of buffers between human life and the natural world. Man alone in the face of nature is a very fragile and utterly outmatched creature. He dies easily by accident or by what are now called minor injuries or routine sicknesses. For all that, it’s a mistake to think he saw the world as a wicked or monstrous. Nature also provided everything he ever was provided with and gave him every glimpse of the beautiful he ever received. If we were left alone in the woods we might learn something of the fearfulness of nature but we would see little of its sublimity; when we go camping alone in nature we might see something of its sublimity but relatively little of its fearfulness- but the actual primitive experience is as abstract to us as a discussion of liberal regimes would have been to aboriginals.

More from Just Thomism: what are we looking for in feminine and masculine.

American Sun on the cracks in the Democrat lines at the battle of impeachment. A post on sex without procreation and the dangers of reproductive rights meaning subsidizing non-procreative acts. Cyrus O’Neill considers the life of Henry V of England and how his own perspective has changed. The ongoing cybernetics series continues: Serial Experiments Cybernetics Layer 08: Ego. If I had a Post of the Week, this would be it: White Devils or, How We Got Here and Where We Are Going. On No Nut November, it being a sign we are looking for leaders again, and why it led to accusations of antisemitism. Mr. Landry is back with Five Friday Reads, with some support and advice for the Groypers.

John Derbyshire’s November Diary is a grab bag of notable goings on, including bits on social justice in academia, his new puppy, and woke math. This week’s Radio Derb podcast is on the knife attacks near Fishmongers’ Hall in London.

The Anti-Gnostic looks at the Cathedral and gravitas, and notes that most current Presidential nominees have no command presence, because the role is no longer even relevant.

The Orthosphere with the if I had a second best post of the week, this would be it: Ahrimanic and Luciferic Evil. On forsaking the comforts of resignation and maintaining hope. On when living becomes harder because we fail to keep good (proverbial) fences.

Audacious Epigone on Michael Bloomberg’s attempt to lead the Democratic purity spiral: Immigrants Improve Our Religion. Also, what people think of government workers and jobs, by demographic.

Patriactionary notes the Holodomor is now being focused on by Canada, and goes onto ask why we allied ourselves with a guy like Stalin in WWII.

Occidental Dissent continues the Southern History Series with a look at the socialist populist Senator Huey Long. The recent shooting at the Pensacola, Florida Naval Air Station was by a Saud. A very good point is raised: if America is evil, why the hell was he there?

Harper’s has a decent article summarizing the current Leftist Lingo.

Anatoly Karlin with a map of Kazakhstani IQ scores. The scores seem much higher where different ethnicity is largley concentrated. I wonder. He compares anti-Semitism in the USA and Russia. Those intending to emigrate from Russia has fallen to a record low.

Tragically that future has come upon us at such an accelerated rate that the dystopia is no longer in the future, it is here. But the last word will not be spoken by the liberals and their allies.

I will dwell in Christmas Land again this year and every year, and it is my hope and prayer for thee, that you are able to dwell in Christmas Land this Christmas and in all the Christmases to come, on this earth and in His house of many mansions in heaven.

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

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.

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:

VDH gives an overview of the impeachment proceedings.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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:

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.

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.

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.

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:

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:

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.

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.

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. Part II of Ten Questions for Radical Environmentalist Derrick Jensen. Corporate wokeness is no surprise. It has deep roots. Buy the world a Coke and see! Spencer J.

Jim on the durability of Trump, if he can last as long as Franklin Roosevelt, on a US colour revolution, and Civil War II.

At City Journal, a brief review of Charles Marohn’s work showing that suburban development is financially a net loss to the public purse.

Just Thomism on rejection as the basis of the fantasies of men and women. He also has a pause for thought. What if you could get away with what the Left is doing now: Note on the Fears of the Right.

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

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

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

From the Council of European Canadians, a collection of quotes and notes on book 3 of the Culture of Critique.

RottenChestnuts proposes nihilism as the motive driving our current cohort of politicians and power seekers. He discusses the meanings of justice, revenge, and the prosecution 93 year-old Bruno Dey, a German conscripted during WWII.

Throne and Altar looks at the need for Catholic tribalism.

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.

At American Sun, what to do to prevent doxing and how to deal with doxxers. A very good review of Joker by Gio Pennacchietti. A discussion of the Escapist Dream of Collapse. Fred Watson Jr. looks at the darkening future of California. This week’s Five Friday Reads, on the Administrative State.

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.

It was Thanksgiving in Canada on Monday. Patriactionary posts a Thanksgiving hymn, Now Thank We All Our God. Happy belated Thanksgiving Canada.

On Columbus Day, Patriactionary finds a proposal to rename it. Counter Currents gets very busy, and looks at the autocthonic argument which attacks the legitimacy of European settlement. Titus Quintus looks at the Memory of Columbus in the Western Diaspora. Michael Polignano discusses the savagery of indigenous peoples in pre-discovery Americas.

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

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

Steve Sailer has an interesting article on English sports and how sports became standardized. The comments are worth a look as well. His Taki Magazine column looks at the movement to eliminate standardized tests for college admission. On the old and new conventional wisdoms on the causes of -isms.

A partial transcript is here. This week’s Derb Radio is on white folks not putting up with racists who write books about them.

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

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

More Counter Currents, with Warsaw Journal #2:

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

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

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

Why is there so much hate?

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

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

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

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

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

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

RETUSCHERAD

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

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

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

Cantandum in Ezkhaton 10/13/19

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

The Orthosphere begins the week with thoughts on the degradation of English. Can Evolutionary Biology and Naturalism Provide a Foundation for Morality? They say no, and I agree. Mr. Cocks asks: Why so little progress in physics? JMSmith discusses the need for an anchoritic Church, and why avoiding critical theory is for the best. Richard Cocks proposes a course on philosophy and film. I think it’s a good idea. I’m a fan of much of the stories in the curriculum, but have not considered them the way he has. When the SJWs attack, here is some advice on what to do. Mr. Bertonneau reviews The World Without Men, a dystopian novel of a future sans X chromosome, by Charles Eric Maine, published in 1958. He follows that with a contextual review of 2008’s hit film Cave Women of Mars.

Evolutionist X looks at the legal system of Ireland, before the English got involved. She also buys a skateboard, and encourages all to Go Outside.

I have not seen Joker, but probably will. Steve Sailer reviews Joker in his weekly Taki Mag column. Richard Greenhorn reviews as well: The Killer Troll. Anatoly Karlin reviews and proposes why the film works across the political spectrum. Styxenhammer666 gives his thoughts:

Alf’s new book, The Resurrection of God, is almost ready.

Cambria Will Not Yield on the fall of Europe’s peoples, who have turned from Christ to materialism.

John Derbyshire returns to China. It’s kinda fun.

At American Sun, Michael Sisco greets the Quad City area with a warning that Progressivism is not working in their interests. I think that quote from Voltaire needs to be modified a bit: “If you want to know who rules over you, find out WHO DECIDES who you may not criticize.” In these days of HLvM and Bioleninism, I think the prohibitions on critiquing the Left’s darlings are a distraction to get the Middle to miss that the High are trying to eliminate them.On the global elites and the politics of humiliation, or why your kids will learn about sexuality before they can spell. RTWT. The review of cybernetics continues with Layer 3: William Ross Ashby. The weekly Five Friday Reads points to this speech by Eric Zemmour, a French conservative, on the existential crisis facing France, and all of the West, to be frank. RTWT. A taste:

We must of course be conservative and conserve our identity but what can we conserve since everything has been destroyed? Our task is more immense, nearly hopeless: we must restore.

I do not say that the question of identity is the only question that arises for us. I do not say that the economy does not exist, that deindustrialization does not exist, that scraping together enough money to get through the month does not exist, that poverty in retirement does not exist, that labor law does not exist, that outsourcing does not exist, that the constraints and shortcomings of the Euro do not exist.

I only claim that the question of the French people’s identity precedes them all, that it preexists them all, even that of sovereignty. It’s a question of life or death. A French Islamic Republic might be sovereign but in what way would it be French?

A review of Tom Holland’s Dominion: How the Christian Revolution Remade the World, over at the Russell Kirk Center.

At Patriactionary, Satanic services will now be offered at the U.S. Naval Academy. Also, that new Astroturfed Death Cult – Extinction Rebellion. Rumours are surfacing that Justin Trudeau may have paid off a student he allegedly had an affair with 18 years ago. I use slippery language so I can’t be sued. Because I know those acting on his behalf have used the threat of a law suit to try to silence someone before. Now the taxpayer funded propaganda machine public broadcaster CBC is getting in on the act as well. (The idea of the bastion of MSM wokeness in Canada claiming “moral rights” is laughable, whether you consider the narrow definition of that term under copyright law or not.) Vote accordingly, Canada. Speaking of diversity is our strength, Nordstrom gets woke.

Occidental Dissent on the status of women and slaves in the old Chesapeake colony. In the same vein, on the institution of slavery in the Carolinas, and on the Elites of Tidewater. They take note of an Eric Metaxas interview with Ann Coulter. I have little exposure to Ms. Coulter but she shines in this interview.

Steve Sailer notes that Greta Thunberg is not getting the Nobel Peace Prize. Greta: “How dare you!”

The American Mind discusses multiculturalism, and that it may not blend cultures, but rather, create a hierarchy of cultures in the state. Also, a brief discussion of the UK’s loss of sovereignty to the EU and Trump.

Jim on the impeachment crisis and the even bigger crisis that may follow. He follows up, discussing the Dem’s impeachment maneuvers.

Counter Currents with a brief look at Morse Peckham and how corporations contribute to cultural incoherence. Spencer Quinn looks at the old sitcom Taxi, the character Jim Ignatowski, and how his tragic outcome parallels that of the West. On Orwell’s 1984 and the concept of ‘Doublethink’, as applied to our times. Mr. De Camp has a quick review of Kevin McDonald’s Individualism and the Western Liberal Tradition. In particular, the postulation that differences in the three seminal groups of modern European populations were the basis for the English and US Civil Wars. John Wilkinson: if you want to know why society is falling, look at its institutions. Anton continues his enlightening trip around Europe, with Warsaw Journal I. RTWT.

Malcolm notes the death of Cream drummer Ginger Baker. He mentions the drum work in Sunshine of Your Love as groundbreaking, and he’s right:

Council of European Canadians on where the People’s Party of Canada is getting it wrong on Canadian culture and values.

[Begin Rant] Canada has always had diverse cultures, from Confederation onward. The number grew with the opening of the West. The cultures of European origin often have more in common with their immediate neighbours to the south than those of other provinces. (A good start is the map found on JayMan’s blog.)

The reason this worked relatively well was because we knew enough to leave each other alone, except where the national interest was at stake, or where one part of Canada needed help from the others. Until, that is, the federal income tax, the closeted communists Pearson and Trudeau Sr., multiculturalism, and finally the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. These forces caused intrusions into the private lives of Canadians, and a disruption in our legal traditions, which would shock our founding fathers and make Stalin green with envy. In order to tax efficiently, use government spending to bribe voters efficiently, conscript efficiently, forecast the previously mentioned tasks accurately, and force your vision of Canadian culture on everyone, efficiently, you need to reduce individuals to a standard unit to make the populace homogeneous. No distinctions allowed amongst cultures where that interferes with Ottawa’s need for control. Canada’s various cultures have been bending and fracturing under that load, since at least the 1960s.

Diversity is not what Ottawa wants, it’s homogeneity. Their war is not a war on a culture, it’s a war on all cultures but its own. Ottawa’s hubris is it thinks it can bring in people from anywhere in the world, and the tactics it deploys to make NPCs of its current citizens will work just as well on newcomers. It worked so well on First Nations, the first beneficiaries of Ottawa’s grand ideas, right? (For non-Canucks, it was a travesty that shows how the application of progressivism and Whig thinking can go horribly wrong.) Why not everyone else?

But it does not work, because the people coming over now can’t be proselytized to in one of two official languages, and come from cultures where this level of intrusion in private lives is incomprehensible. And so, they don’t assimilate and we get the cultural balkanization of our cities. [Rant over.]

Following up, on Elections Canada and their 30 seconds adverts for the Great Replacement.

Morgoth’s Review looks at Extinction Rebellion, the finest Astroturfing job ever. As well, he guests on Red Ice Radio.

Al fin discusses the new Jordan Peterson movie and his recent trip to rehab.

William Briggs, Statistician to the Stars, begins the week with his ongoing translation of the Summa Contra Gentiles. This week: God Can Produce Effects Without Proximate Causes. He also posts the 2nd draft of the Realist Catholic Climate Declaration. Well, it looks like Big Suntan is targeting areas with high numbers of same sex couples. I’d say this has causation reversed, but that would make me some kinda phobic. The Cranky Professor guests with a moral argument for free will. Filed under ‘ftw?’: Researchers Say Thoughts & Prayers Are Harmful. The week ends on a note of doom: This Week In Doom – Accelerating Doom Edition.

Z Man considers why Buckley-style conservatism is a failure. Advertising does not work, but it sure is profitable, just like democracy. Z Man travels to Copenhagen via Pearson and makes notes. For what it’s worth, the disdain for Toronto’s airport is so high no Canadian calls it ‘Toronto’. Rather, it’s ‘Pearson’, said with the same tone of voice one might use when referring to Auschwitz. More travel notes on Copenhagen, on European work culture, meeting dissidents abroad, and Orange Man Bad syndrome at the BBC. On the way to Norway, Z Man notes the rough condition of Malmö and Oslo, and recent demographic changes. His weekly Z Blog Power Hour has him looking through the mail bag. He returns to Copenhagen, where the police extend the usual courtesies to Antifa outside an event he attends.

Myth of the 20th Century’s podcast features the Z Man as a special guest. LTWT.

Guillaume Durocher on Jacques Atalli’s desire for a Jewish/Muslim Alliance for France.

PA Blog with an open thread, with two end scenes to films on Italian beaches. He points back to his prior post on getting a bun in her oven early.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kill To Party on first internet loves.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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