The People Shall Dwell Alone

February 19th, 2015 by MC

Thesis: Winning elections is pointless when the culture and the people themselves are corrupt. A few people at the top won’t be able to change the character of an entire nation. We have to build a better society from the ground up.

Antithesis: Any effective cultural change must go through the centers of power and influence; elites alone have the power to change society. All of the largest social changes of the last century were imposed from the top down.

Misunderstanding Lord Acton

January 26th, 2015 by Vader

There’s power in numbers and power corrupts. We tend to forget that when Lord Acton coined the phrase “power corrupts,” he was not referring to the corruption of the powerful, he was talking about the corruption of people — specifically historians — who write about the powerful. Just look at how many people make allowances for the Kennedys they’d never make for their neighbors or employees. By any objective standard of morality, JFK and Teddy were scummy dudes. But countless liberal writers give them pass because . . . Camelot! Or something.

Simon de Montfort

January 20th, 2015 by Pecos Bill

I don’t much bother with Wiccapedia, but a spread on this gent fixed my gaze. Seems he humbled a king and getted modern democracy in one crack shot, which is plenty for any hombre to crow about.

I reckon I ain’t heered of him afore now because I was raised to make G. Washington my hero. I kin live with that. It warms the cockrels of my heart that furriners got their heroes as well.

Birthrates Continue to Drop

December 08th, 2014 by Man SL

For the sixth year in a row, the American birthrate has reached a new low.

Most economic statistics are lies.  We will know that the real economy has finally turned around when the birthrate starts to rise again.

We will know that the pack of harpies and sillies that make up our national media and political classes has been replaced by real people when this gets more discussion than an obese guy dying in New York after being choked out while resisting arrest.
