Cantandum in Ezkhaton 12/15/19

Polish Memorial, Alberta Legislature

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

C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Boris Johnson wins the UK election in a landslide. Labour gets crushed…flat. Good riddance. Ulster and Scotland are not happy, appearing to want to remain in the EU. Occidental Dissent on the Left in the UK losing its mind, the most common outcome when they encounter reality, and a post-mortem on the death of the Labour Party. Brett Stevens posts his thoughts on the election over at Amerika, seeing the voters as starting to recognize that the Left cannot provide a strong, secure and stable society. Morgoth’s Review with a very interesting story about the collapse of the Labour Party:

Audacious Epigone on the coming bust of all those value bubbles, and negative interest rates. He runs some numbers on the Democrat candidates versus Trump, with some great graphics. He reveals a surprising find on abortion: ladies are more pro-life, men more pro-choice.

PA Blog on what we do not know about WWII, especially about a homeland for (((Them))) to be carved out of Polish territory.

Vanishing American II discusses how pity can be used against you. He looks at the ongoing never-ending grievances lobbed at the South.

Lord Black of Crossharbour gets blackpilled on Canada and the throne speech by our new minority government.

The Orthosphere’s JMSmith considers his blessings, including some nasty accidents that led him to make some changes. Bonald discusses his experience with various kinds of ‘woke’ training. How did that Alice Cooper song go? “School’s out!”? Actually, it was William Henry Davies. A couple of blogs worth noting: Malcolm Pollack leans towards Theism, and Deogowolf’s old site, The Joy of Curmudgeonry. If I had a post of the week, it would be this look at reason as a dangerous instrument: Beware the Jaws of Ruthless Reason.

John Derbyshire discusses the Fishmongers’ Hall attack in London and his hopes the US does not follow the UK in its self-immolation by immigration. His Radio Derb podcast this week in a mixed bag, including the UK election and the anniversary of the Fort Hood shootings.

Council of European Canadians looks at current writings on indigenous nationalism in Canada. Also, a black pill on the myth of white genocide, which Ferdinand Bardamu argues is actually a case of ‘white suicide’.

Shylock Holmes has a eulogy for his recently passed grandmother. RTWT.

Vulture of Critique looks at the history of the ATFs ‘Fast and Furious’ program, where they allowed and tracked arms sales from the US into Mexico, which are now showing up in all sorts of crimes, even in France.

VDH looks at the history of impeachment proceedings in the United States.

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

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

RottenChestnuts sees the impeachment and is reminded of 20th century chemical weapons strategy. He also has a rant about Basic College Girls…the ones running the impeachment show.

Evolutionist X does a little research on old time preparation of meat, and bluing (or aging) it.

The Scholar’s Stage discusses fissures appearing in Chinese society which may mark trouble ahead.

American Sun on how the Democrats have lost the narrative on the Trump fauxpeachmint. A look at ancient (and not so ancient) Aztec ritual sacrifices and Progressive white washing of the same. A look at changes to modern cinema including the insertion of liberalism into movies. They look at the Catholic faith and its parallel decline with Conservatism Inc. This week’s Five Friday Reads is particularly good. I thought the Afghanistan War was useless, and it’s shocking to discover that so did the people fighting it. Read both the article and the thread on it. They also point to this City Journal article on the costs of the Social Justice Movement, not in dollar terms, but I suppose in the immolation of meaning.

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

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

Jim:

 

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

 

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

 

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

Both are RTWTs.

Amerika looks at the ‘Half Earth’ environmental plan, which would return half the planet to its natural state with its only planner being nature. This leads to a discussion of the difference between Left and Right conservationism. A quick review of Houllebecq’s Serotonin. A look at the deceptive public relations practiced in South Africa as a distraction from crime and genocide. The Four Horsemen: Part III – The Hedonic Treadmill, and Part IV – That Big Night Train to the Adios. On the similarities of the modern person and Tolkien’s character Denethor (from Lord of the Rings). A great post on porn and sex magik, constructive uses for sexual desire beyond release, and the use of porn, like empty carbs, to keep the masses docile. Who would have thought: Diversity Proves Incompatible With Free Speech. On Irony Poisoning:

Irony poisoning is when one’s worldview/weltshauung/reality tunnel is so dominated by irony and detachment-based-comedy, that the joke becomes real and you start to do things that are immoral or wrong from a place of deep nihilistic cynicism.

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

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

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

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

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

Alf with spot-on wisdom about women and sex.

Anatoly Karlin looks at the Flynn Effect in Russia.

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

Razib Khan on the end of the scientific culture:

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

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

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

Murdoch Murdoch has an Ask Me Anything episode #3.

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

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

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

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

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

Just Thomism considers what love and belonging to another means.

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

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

Keep on reactin’.

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

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

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

Morgoth’s Review: Social Justice is a Dumpster Full of Penguin Classics.

Shylock Holmes with An Open Letter to a Smart Young Man About Dating Women.

Over at Standpoint, How Usury Killed Christendom. It’s a look at the decline of the Church in Europe in the time of liberalism, and what might be done about it.

Occidental Dissent reports that after all of that, Charlottesville’s Confederate statues will not be removed. The Replacement is real, in southern states: a quick a look at William A. Link’s new book Southern Crucible: Making of an American Region. On the ways conservatives avoid seeing the coming dissolution of the West: Ketmat and the Murti-Bing Pill. An interesting piece on how the Civil War and the Reconstruction were a second founding for the US, and a follow-up on what “rights” meant before and after the US Civil War. For Southern Nationalists, a lesson in optics and how it is the visions of the elite that need to be changed to change a society. On the “perpetual state of social revolution” of liberalism.

From PA Blog, poetry from Poland: The Reply. He reposts a comment which provides a very likely scenario for Red Flag Laws. Signs of Life in Sweden, where municipal counsels are fighting the national government over migrant quotas. An interesting way of looking at functional men in a hierarchy: Sociosexual Hierarchy, the military model. Also, a post on the emigrant experience, and the meaning in your home nation you’ll never find elsewhere.

On gun control, Zeroeth Position examines the larger problems contributing to mass shootings, dissecting the sources of America’s domestic troubles, and proposing Nick Land’s Horrorism as a way to resist.

Just Thomism on the origins of equality of the pursuit of truth in Christianity.

Council of European Canadians has an interview with Richard Storey, author of The Uniqueness of Western Law, with his thoughts in Libertarianism and Catholicism. A welcome essay on Québecois language protection and changing demographics in Montréal. (We hear almost nothing out west about anything happening east of Ottawa.) Also, on self-mutilation generally, as a triumph of cultural Marxism. Never mind the cab ride in Edmonton, just walk down the street in that city. You’ll see many, many tattooed and pierced specimens. Such displays remind me not of the body as a canvass. More like the body as an abandoned building, vandalized and spray painted with graffiti. I would call it a triumph over the spirit of man. It has convinced people to devalue their minds, souls, faith and bodies utterly.

Throne, Altar, Liberty discusses true Toryism, how it relates to the second law of thermodynamics, and the present day Right.

The Edge of Time with a fine blackish red pill on democracy: Why you need a nobility.

I’m sure he remembers no negative interaction.

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

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

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

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

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

Capture

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

Al fin discusses the recent drone strikes in Saudi Arabia by Yemeni rebels (with Iran being blamed), being a sign that war and terrorism by drone is imminent. He also discusses the potential hot war between Iran and Saudi Arabia.

Apocalyptic Revolutionary looks at two men who have recently died in custody. Click here to see Jeffrey Epsteins non-prosecution agreement. He also looks at a Saudi hit squad’s conversations, recorded during their murder of Jamal Khashoggi. He also posts a piece on Aleksander Dugin and Populism, and “Populism” as used by elites to mean “not our ideology”.

Throne and Altar with a book review of Sir Robert Filmer’s Patriarchia: a Defense of the Natural Power of the Kings Against the Unnatural Liberty of the People. Among notable arguments, that authority to rule arises from the authority of father over his children.

Evolutionist X considers legal systems within prisons, as part of the ongoing review of Legal Systems Very Different From Ours. Also, a discussion of culture and what makes white culture these days.

The Myth of the 20th Century podcast discusses the history of venture capital. Listen through to the end, there’s a great interview excerpt.

It’s not Climate ChangeTM, it’s not the Dissident Right, and it’s not Neoreaction, but it is Dr. Spencer’s refutation of the Grey Blocks Illusion, and a cool video courtesy of Steve Sailer. Malcolm plugs a good channel for drummers on YouTube.

Jim: We Are All White Nationalists Now. I agree, either because we are, or because Lefty will label any dissent as such, which will eventually include us all. Plus, the need for actual education and apprenticeship: Time for a second Dissolution of the Monasteries.

Cambria Will Not Yield on the modern Pharisees and their attack on Christ. Also, a post on the need for faith to be a conservative, and democracy as the work of Satan: Sacred Tears.

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

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

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

He also posts his weekly Z Blog Power Hour podcast.

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

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

Winter is coming.

American Sun with a review of the geopolitical situation in Asia, where power struggles are active but not noticed in the West. Mr. Delacroix on building strength within for when the foundations of our progressive society fall. On the priests who only want to subvert kings, but not be one: Rebooted Goddess Culture. Superlutheran with Self Defense Against Clown World: Part I. It’s a good primer on reducing exposure to Big Tech, the State, and despair. (This post by Occidental Dissent shows exactly why Superlutheran is right.) They finish the week with a bonus super-sized Ten Friday Reads.

Audacious Epigone has a brilliant work in progress, bound to agitate those who believe in Progress: Testing the Faith. He looks at the flyers which say “Islam is right about women”, and Islam agrees.

Counter Currents has a great article on the history and demographics of that most Nordic of states, Minnesota, and its most prominent son, Hubert Humphrey. Don’t want to be censored on the Internet? Then pretend to be one of the chosen people. How progressivism creates it’s own bogeymen, in this case, mass shooters. White Identity politics is here to stay: We Can’t Go Back To The ’80s. Does psychopathy vary amongst the races? It appears so. However, the cause is not clear.

The Orthosphere presents: The Black Beast of Respectable Opinion, or who is actually on the Right. Bonald summarizes his works on scholastic philosophy that appear over at Throne and Altar. A discussion of those who angrily advocate on behalf of the poor and downtrodden: very often, anger junkies and grifters. It’s time for SEX! (Society for the Encouragement of Xenophobia, of course.) Some verse on the Autumnal Equinox.

Audacious Epigone with surprising statistics on the cohort who most wants gun control: it’s the Boomers, not the ‘youts’.

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

From Steve Sailer, the Onion takes it up a notch. It’s not cool for Europe to protect the European way of life.

An aside: religion as a predictor for who votes for Hitler in 1932. Eye opening.

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