Cantandum in Ezkhaton 07/21/19

This one will be a bit short, as I’m headed back to higher elevations. I’ll catch up next week.

Leading the important news of the week, the BC Human Rights Tribunal heard a case this week where a transgender woman was denied her Charter protected right to have a Brazilian. This madness will not end. Our governments no longer work to make a safe, certain and secure nation, but for the opposite. It’s not a bug but a feature of the system.

William Briggs opens the week with his ongoing translation of Thomas Aquinas Summa Contra Gentiles (it’s a labour of love, lasting years, and will likely go on for several more). This week — Summary Against Modern Thought: The Stars Don’t Make Our Choices. The newest Bond film will feature a black woman as 007. William leaks the script. In England, the 500 year protest appears to be coming to an end. A post on man making himself God, and therefore the only source of new knowledge, as predicted in 1947: The Religion of Man Triumphant. An interesting one on why a significant number of drugs add no new benefits. The conceit of AI, and what you should actually worry about in our Internet Age.

Evolutionist X on discovering your Dad was not your Dad, and extended families. She has a Moon Landing Celebration Playlist. Well done my Lady. Also, a quick review of a paper on the peoples of the lost land of Beringia.

Guillaume Durocher on Pharos, the new website making sure the correct view of Antiquity is that seen through the Progressive lense.

Council of Canadian Europeans on the fragility of cities.

Scholar’s Stage with a review of Strategy: A History by Lawrence Freedman, which turns into a compelling argument for why modern intellectuals do not seem all that smart.

Smoking Girl – ‘nuf said.

The Myth of the 20th Century with their weekly podcast, this week on the development of the F-35 fighter jet program.

PA Blog on the western rules behind citizens using violence to enforce order, the aptly named Animal Control in Augsburg.

VDH on the rise of American unexceptionalism and its motives and consequences.

From the Hedgehog Review, an answer to the question of why modern man is so unhappy: Homo Saecularis.

Jim on Trump closing the asylum loophole in the US. On General Flynn’s involvement in the shitshow of delusion known as Russiagate.

James True defines Satanism. Also, his thoughts on government by CNN, and what they are aiming for:

These people only want you on your knees so you beg for virtue. This is how you manage a prana farm.

Flogging the ego in public only shows people you’re a masochist. Terms like “white privilege,” “toxic masculinity,” and “white nationalist” are the tools of this trade. If you think your genitals, melatonin, or political affiliation is a source of shame, you are living in a syringe of self-loathing. This narcissism will manifest with you seeing the outer world as racist, sexist, or xenophobic, too. This is the technology of projection.

… …
Love yourself completely. Kids are watching. We don’t want them growing up in a sick world. The ego is a good thing. Pride is a good thing. These are fountainheads of morality. A weak ego is a curly straw for vampires. A society is broken when it saunters through the streets swinging the cat-of-nine-tails. These awards for the most dramatic bleeding are incarnated masochism. Rise up in your spine. Stop pretending you are a virus on the earth. You are the living soil. These words are a wet seed that grows.

RottenChestnuts has an ongoing essay on Political Theory. Part IV discusses the individual and how they may not be so good for the nation. The People, Reconsidered poses that politics is control over individuals. Part II of The People… discusses the problems of individuals who rule us today. Also, the Democrats are going to the guns…only who they shoot at is in question. Speaking of going to guns, when is the next John Brown moment? It might start with an impeachment.

I’ve thought this applies to Canada as well. With all the rhetoric sophistry the Libtards are throwing about on foreign interference in this Fall’s federal election, should Le Dauphin, notre petite pomme de terre, not be affirmed as the rightful sovereign of Canada, I give it a 16.67% chance he stages some kind of coup. It won’t be anything original: expect a polite version of Russiagate. Given his unrestrained adoration of Castro, one might think he would try a military coup. I doubt DND will find him charming enough for that.

Tears come to the progressive eyes.

Z Man begins the week with a well done critique of Yoram Hazony’s book The Virtues of Nationalism. You’ll learn a bit about nationalism. The comments are also worth a look. He details his trip to the Imperial Capital and the National Conservatism conference. Part II is here. On white identity politics and Self Loathing As Medicine. He discusses the Left’s mastery of the media, and how to start winning minds again. A particularly good Z Blog Power Hour, the July Grab Bag.

Wrath of Gnon, memory:

A busy week for the Orthosphere. It begins with Thomas Bertonneau visiting an NY WWII air show for fun. Kristor discusses the optimal tonlieu, a payment for which you are granted access to and enjoy the protections of a state, as a way to deal with the immigration crisis. He also responds to Chastek’s Good Question, as to why we continue in spite of nominalism. Thoughts on what to do with savages: Lay Down Your Pitchfork. A suggestion on proper criticism.

Steve Sailer showing that the purity spirals may be running out of material: World War H. His weekly column in Taki magazine is well worth a read, this week on what’s up with African population growth.

Throne, Altar, Liberty on the Anglican Church of Canada’s recent synod, where allowing same sex marriages under canon law was narrowly voted down: A Cause Neither Lost Nor Gained. It took zero time for the church to promise to review it’s own governance structure in light of this result. This quote is telling:

“My community doesn’t — pardon the expression — give a rat’s tahootie about what 14 bishops across this country think, and that’s what it came down to is 14 bishops,” George said. “If we’re going to follow what God is telling us to do, we need to be able to hear all the voices that are in the room.”

🙄

American Sun continues The Eternal Anglo, with Part II discussing the Norman and Anglo-Saxon history of the British Isles. A critique of Disney’s Marvel Trash Theatre. A modest proposal for what to do with the Boomers: work with Late Boomers to revitalize your community. On the miscegenation of whites in the southwest, and the real possibility of its farmers winding up in the same spot as the Boers.

Titania McGrath always makes me smile:

Well, maybe not always

“This is just the beginning—of the climate crisis, and the political unravelings that will continue to accompany it. And so, it is time to shout, and loudly, that the freedom of all the earth’s people to move across borders must be at the center of any response to the climate crisis. Unless we do, racism and fear—hidden as always in the guise of “security”—will give way to fascism and war before the tides get a chance to drown us.”

Ben Erenreich, here.

I think it’s safe to say that Climate ChangeTM is now dogma used for political control. The only thing that has changed is the temerity of those preaching it.

Some updates: Alf’s Garden of the Internet is back up. Heartiste is active over at Gab. Cambria Will Not Yield moved here, back in April.

Steve Sailer on what D-Day may soon come to mean.

Cambria Will Not Yield with a tonic against Liberalism: Breaking Satan’s Rules. Also, a long one but worth it: Keep Thy Heart.

PA Blog with a quick note on Social Credit and how it might just work out. Also, a discussion of Charlottesville and the consequences, from Gab. Plus, a friendly reminder for Boomers and Millennials.

A bit late, but here is an article on Victor Orban and his handling of Hungary and the refugee crisis in Europe: Hungary and the Future of Europe. A taste:

“Hungary must protect its ethnic and cultural composition,” he said at Kötcse (which more or less rhymes with butcher). “I am convinced that Hungary has the right—and every nation has the right—to say that it does not want its country to change.” France and Britain had been perfectly within their prerogatives to admit millions of immigrants from the former Third World. Germany was entitled to welcome as many Turks as it liked. “I think they had a right to make this decision,” Orbán said. “We have a duty to look at where this has taken them.” He did not care to repeat the experiment.

Scholar’s Stage discusses a speech given by Xi Jinping, explaining his political philosophy. They follow that up with the purpose for China’s social credit system.

James True discusses the real purpose of ‘equality’.

Anatoly Karlin on YouTube’s purge of the Deplorables.

Mr. Briggs with The Ordering Among Angels, part of his Summary Against Modern Thought series. What Happens if the Doctors Keep Up the Killing? An interesting review of what atheists believe…including higher powers. An excellent argument on the Consent Fallacy. Two people consenting does not make it good or right: just ask Armin Meiwes, or Cindy Gladue. A review of Antichrist by Saint Robert Bellarmine. His weekly ode to our all-out sprint over the cliff: This Week In Doom – Pride In Perversion Edition.

large_pK36ZIJvIjqyyuBPwumUS41MzXrReactionary Thought posts a link to the Italian made 1960s film Africa Addio. It’s a little too surreal…to be ignored. WTWT.

National Post has an article on the ever changing nature of the ‘Climate Change’ scare, now rebranded the ‘Climate EmergencyTM‘. For Canuckistanis, you should be slightly concerned, as renaming something as an emergency could be used later on to exercise some very arbitrary steps by Ottawa under the Emergencies Act. Who’s daddy said “Just watch me!”?

download[Pierre] TrudeauYes, well there are a lot of bleeding hearts around who just don’t like to see people with helmets and guns. All I can say is, go on and bleed, but it is more important to keep law and order in this society than to be worried about weak-kneed people who don’t like the looks of a soldier’s helmet.
RalfeAt any cost? How far would you go with that? How far would you extend that?
TrudeauWell, just watch me.

Pierre’s comments on bleeding hearts remind me of his son.

Alf, no introduction needed: Get Out Leftists, Just Get the Fuck Out.

Smoking Lady Picture – II

Z Man starts the week with The Unraveling Right, a discussion of Conservativism’s lack of relevance. On the right-wing progressive embrace of Black worship: Negrophilia. On Cheap Credit, and why it’s a problem. What happens when we are no longer able to understand our own systems? Z Man proposes an answer. His weekly Z Blog Power Hour Podcast, “celebrating” Pride Month: All About Pride. Do LTTWT.

A good video by a Canadian reactionary, Endeavour, on ideology and its part in the decline of the West. It was not what I expected, and there’s some good problems worth thinking about here: Ideology Isn’t Everything.

American Sun, on Progressives hijacking the Fantasy genre. It explains why they run around yelling “raycis” and “flavourofthemonth-o-phobic” all the time: they think these are magic words for magic spells. A review of Kerry Bolton’s Yockey: A Fascist Odyssey. A reprint of a Thermidor essay on the failing political Right: When Fr. Neuhaus Saw Cthulu.

Evolutionist X with an interesting article on how people argue over each other and the shifting sands of context: Equally True, Equally False. Her startling Short Argument For Vending Machines Full of Experimental Drugs. (I like where she takes this.) On the rise of mental health issues on campus:

In the case of the “mental health breakdown” on the left, it’s a combination of the left lying about its mental health and believing its own lies about things that are bothering it.

The Myth of the 20th Century crew with this week’s podcast: The American Farmer – Tradition in Modernity.

Jim on Trump’s visit to England and making Brexit high status. Of course, a bioleninist parade breaks out in response. Also, Jim on the changing tide of the use of law enforcement for political ends.

American Sun with an analysis of how progressives use disadvantaged groups in contradictory ways to suit their cause: Schrodinger’s Blacks. I’d bet we see a similar trend within twenty years or so with feminism. Feminists (or faux feminist politicians looking for votes) will say that women were oppressed by the Patriarchy when they were forced to stop being mothers and enter the labour force during ‘Women’s Liberation’. By being turned into ‘sex slaves’ for mens desires during the ‘Sexual Revolution’. By being offered better birth control and abortion so men could avoid their responsibilities. And they will argue that we knew better, given the unhappiness reported and drug and anti-depressant usage by women that followed, but kept on doing it anyway, largely driven by corporations and governments run by men. They’ll loudly proclaim that women should be free to be housewives and raise their children, and of course, to have a man support them. It will be the 11th wave of feminism. And they won’t even detect the irony as they go full circle, claiming the past’s hard won ‘victories’ are today’s oppressions.

Móðir og Barn. Alvöru Sigur.

The issue of how men and women interelate in society and share power is at least as old as…men and women. What we have these days is an exacerbated version of that friction. Its practitioners aren’t really interested in resolving conflicts or problems, but more on what angle they can use to maximize votes, clicks, adherents or whatever they’re looking for. The natural tension never goes away, and so it is a boundless well to get men and women agitating against each other.

In the future, no one will have agency, unless you need them hated. Rant over…

Keep on reactin’
