Senator Mike Lee’s Speech on Conservatism for Our Time

October 29th, 2013 by G.

Rockwell TownhallOne of the mainstays of conservatism is that history has happened and men are flawed. This means that, unlike some destructive varieties of liberalism and progressivism, we cannot believe that people are naturally good and can achieve utopia if we just sweep a few kulaks and wreckers under the rug. It also means that, unlike reactionaries, we cannot believe that there was some time period when institutions and mores were naturally good and we just need to reestablish that time. The reason we are no longer in that time period is because it contained the seeds of its own destruction. And we can’t just wish ourselves back into that time period anyhow, because history has happened, the conditions that made that society possible no longer exist, and we must deal with the contemporary materials that are at hand.

“Companions in shipwreck”

October 24th, 2013 by Vader

The romantic chivalric tradition takes, or at any rate has in the past taken, the young man’s eye off women as they are, as companions in shipwreck not guiding stars.

–J.R.R. Tolkien

Drudge is occasionally a genius

October 24th, 2013 by Vader

Drudge’s headline for a story on how Oliver Stone and Hollywood are objecting to NSA surveillance:

Oliver Stone, Hollywood: 'Stop Watching Us'...

It’s a sentiment I can’t disagree with.

Science as a faltering Idol

October 22nd, 2013 by Zen

I am reliably informed by those who tell me they are smarter, that Science and Religion are mortal enemies and that Religion will be destroyed by Science. Since I am rather fond of daily grace as well as eternal salvation, this is a major bummer.

But now, it seems Science is having major troubles too. Everyone wants to be doing the new, exciting things, which means replication is falling by the wayside. No one has time for serious peer-review, so that is increasingly becoming a waste of time. The traditional gatekeepers, the journals, have just become a way to extort money at monsterous mark-ups.

A frighteningly large percentage of research can not be replicated. And it isn’t just soft targets like psychology either. This canker has infected all of our Science. It seems that even as we rely more on it, Science develops the character of an idol “whose image is in the likeness of the world, and whose substance is that of an idol, which waxeth old and shall perish in Babylon, even Babylon the great, which shall fall.” D&C 1:16

We can buy happiness!

October 22nd, 2013 by Zen

Science has spoken, and it has told us that Money buys Happiness. Who are we to argue with Science? I therefore encourage all those who patronize the Junior Ganymede to pursue wealth and earthly gain with all haste!

Wait… you have to spend it how? More blessed, you say? Well, that does make it a little more tricky for those of us fixated on ourselves.

How to buy Happiness
