Without Nationalism...

Without Nationalism...

How does World War 2 even make sense?I know, "National Socialists," duh.Let's try to look a bit beyond the painfully obvious, especially since the Germans weren't big believers in nationalism for other people, but instead were prussian supremacists with dreams of empire.Instead, without borders, peoples with a shared culture, ruled over by their own governments and tradition, separate from other nations, why would there even be a reason to resist a few migrants with really cool tanks and uniforms? Heck, even the propaganda of the time, even on the allied side, even among the Soviets, makes no…

Leftism is Inherently Evil

Leftism is Inherently Evil

No, this is not an accidental repeat of a post I've made before, but an entirely new post made by someone else. An example is the spiritual fact that all men are brothers and sisters; this is perverted into political equality. Another spiritual good is the sexual and creative love of husband and wife - this is reduced into the massively-promoted and enforced materialism that sex = love, love is good, therefore sex is good. So Leftism is metaphysically evil, because its underlying assumptions are that Life is only-material and restricted to mortality - thereby excluding the divine source of Goodness.…

Efficiency and Money Are Not the Only Measures

Efficiency and Money Are Not the Only Measures

Tucker Carlson, debating Ben Shapiro, made the libertarian end of the sphere lose their shit. So would you, Tucker Carlson, be in favor of restrictions on the ability of trucking companies to use this sort of technology specifically to, you know, sort of artificially maintain the number of jobs that are available in the trucking energy? Are you joking? In a second. In a second! In other words, if I were president and ran the DOT, Department of Transportation, we're not letting driverless trucks on the road, period. Why? Really simple. Driving for a living is the single most common…

Bono is a Piece of Work

Bono is a Piece of Work

OK. My first exposure to U2 that I recall was someone blasting "Sunday Bloody Sunday" from their boom box after getting off the bus in high school, not too long before the Joshua Tree came out. I thought it was cool, and despite the popularity of their later album, that remains my favorite U2 song even if I know it's a blatant piece of propaganda. That said, Bono had always looked unhealthy to me, his movements, manner "off." And I never did like the cover to War, and never even looked at Boy because the name…

Reflecting the Mid-Terms

Reflecting the Mid-Terms

It's been interesting seeing the reactions since the election, especially on election night proper. Sure, a few people utter rhetoric about coming together, etc. As I noted in a previous post there certainly are Democrats out there talking like they're moderates tone-wise while being anything but when you actually look at their policies. More there later. Nevertheless, the platitudes of coming together are easily proven to be a lie. Pelosi within the same speech promises to do anything and everything they can to attack Trump. Trump, Trump, Trump. Little else about otherwise doing their jobs. From our side of the…

A Few Videos

One of the channels I've paid attention to for the last year or so goes by the name Aydin Paladin. One of the rare non-leftists in the social sciences, she looks copiously backs up her videos with deep dives into the actual results of studies. This can be somewhat pedantic at times, but it's useful to see the actual statistics and not what's usually reported. I know a lot of you guys are short on time so I'll tell you up front: if you have only time for one, look at the one on asylums. I know a guy who's…

Virtue and the State

Virtue and the State

Or "The Personal is Political" If you're not sure where you've heard it, it's a leftist catch phrase popularized a while back along with "think global, act local" to enforce that every little personal decision has political ramifications. That no personal decision you made was outside of the scope of your political/ideological beliefs. That everything was Caesar's and nothing was owed to God or yourself. In a way, it leveraged a truth - that every choice you make reflects what you actually believe - but corrupted it because if there are no boundaries between you…

Pretend You're not a Democrat

Pretend You're not a Democrat

I saw commentary recently that some Democrats are undercutting their party by claiming that they're not one of those crazy ones. Sometimes they're still lying. For example. Joe Cunningham in Charleston SC caught my eye when I was there recently, due to signs extolling "Lowcountry Over Party." Hunh. Incidentally, while most of the shots of him make him look professional, friendly, family and nature guy, he does at some times with his hair more a mess look like that "aliens" meme guy (see above). As we'll see, his politics are as incoherent, and likely less honest.…
