The long-term (and subtle) themes for the series include: - A Burkean comparison of French-style "liberation" with true liberty - Conservatism vs. Reaction - Duty before Desire -- the need for rights WITH responsibility

    Not easy being a tourist. Went to Germany for some fun but encountered multiculturalism instead. After a long while I accidentally found out that the central station, where we booked our hotel, is a no-go zone. Good times...

  • The Value of Virginity

    MeganC ^ | 24 October 2018 | MeganC
    About a year ago I saw a feminist program which talked about how virginity wasn't such a big deal and how girls should feel free to experience their sexuality so long as pills, creams, condoms, and legal consent forms were involved. Through the course of the program the act of sex was reduced to little more than a routine biological function akin to going to the bathroom or eating. Ironically, as the program sought to warn girls about being objectified it also managed to reduce men into support systems for penises. And the sole purpose of the penis was clearly...

    The American Mind-Claremont Institute ^ | 10/18/2018 | Angelo Codevilla
    The primary objective of any people who find themselves in the throes of a revolution is to find ways of diverting its logic from its worst conclusions. [....] The logic that drives each turn of our revolutionary spiral is Progressive Americans’ inherently insatiable desire to exercise their superiority over those they deem inferior. With Newtonian necessity, each such exercise causes a corresponding and opposite reaction. The logic’s force comes not from the substance of the Progressives’ demands. If that were the case, acquiescing to or compromising with them could cut it short. Rather, it comes from that which moves, changes,...
  • Camille Paglia: Feminism Based On Destroying Men Is ‘Absolute Poison’ To Culture

    Breitbart ^ | 10-14-2018 | Dr Susan Berry
    Cultural commentator Camille Paglia said in a recently published video that second-wave feminism – in its attempt to destroy men – is also destroying women and our culture. A video of Paglia’s discussion at the Battle of Ideas festival in London in October 2016 has been made available on YouTube and was recently linked to on the Drudge Report. The video is released with the launch of Paglia’s new book, Provocations: Collected Essays. The feminist icon – who prefers the original brand of feminism that won women the right to vote and raised up heroines such as Katharine Hepburn, Amelia...
  • Conservative Patience With Leftist Violence Is Not Infinite

    10/10/2018 8:16:18 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 14 replies
    This is an article I never anticipated writing. It is so deeply violative of American values. But given the growing nature of the American, or un-American, leftist violence, it’s impossible to avoid. The disruption, violence and intimidation tactics of the left have been increasing dramatically since the American people chose Donald Trump as President. And they’ve jumped forward again in the Kavanaugh character assassination hearings. It’s imperative to remember the level of violence and disruption by leftists since November 2016 (although it began before that with Trump supporters being pummelled and chased and bloodied repeatedly.) I won’t reiterate all of...
  • Bob Barr: Stepping Closer To That “Thousand Years of Darkness” Reagan Warned Us About in 1964

    The National Sentinel ^ | 10/10/18 | Bob Barr
    Danger Zone: On October 27, 1964, Ronald Reagan, still two years away from serving in public office himself, delivered one of the greatest speeches in modern American history. Delivered to a nationwide radio audience in support of then-GOP presidential candidate Barry Goldwater, the former movie star declared America at a crossroads. Failure to grasp and aggressively defend against the dangers then faced by our country would, Reagan warned, push us into “a thousand years of darkness.” While the specific dangers about which Reagan then spoke were external, his call to action against existential threats applies with at least equal validity...
  • What Do We Have In Common?

    10/10/2018 11:46:51 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 39 replies ^ | October10, 2018 | Ben Shapiro
    America stands at a precipice. It's a moral precipice of our own making: We're not facing any external existential threat, or any serious economic crisis. Nonetheless, we're at each other's throats in a shocking and unique way. At least in the 1960s, serious issues divided us: the national attempt to grapple with legally enshrined racism, the sexual revolution, the Vietnam War. We have no such excuse now. Yet to view the sheer chaos surrounding the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh is to realize that we may simply have nothing in common anymore, other than our sheer blind luck at having...

    Full title: Most of Us Are NOT Participating in the Hysterical Rage You See on the News If you were to read about the United States of America from someplace else, you’d probably think it was a nation full of people who are gearing up to go to war. Anyone would think the same thing from what they saw in the media. You would see hysterical rage fueling terrible acts. You’d see the intense hatred between people who belong to different political parties. You’d believe this is nationwide. But it’s not. Sure, there’s some tension if you talk politics, but...
  • Orbán: Europe Locked in ‘Culture War’, But ‘Cultural Peace’ Reigns in Hungary

    Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has said that the “culture war” is not being fought on Hungary, but it being fought in Europe which is succumbing to a “creeping” cultural surrender. Addressing the audience at a ceremony to celebrate the revamp of the Budai Vigadó, which houses the country’s heritage museum, Prime Minister Orbán remarked that though he “hear[d] that there’s a culture war going on in Hungary”, he believes the central European country is rather existing in a state of “culture peace”. The Hungarian leader warned of a “creeping pan-European cultural self-renunciation”, and argued that if the continent’s cultural...

    If you thought Matt Damon was funny, you are a disgrace Excuse me for being blunt. But it’s getting late. We are losing this country. You surely are neither Christian nor Jewish, if you got a laugh from Matt Damon’s lampooning of Brett Kavanaugh on SNL. But you are a Democrat. Is this what’s become of America? We are supposed to be a merciful people. So who are you? What are you? We believe in mercy for the widow and pity for the orphan. If you say Kavanaugh’s wife and daughters are neither of those, I ask – have you...

    JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Pictures of the Forest Hill High School halftime band performance during their game against Brookhaven High School are going viral on social media. Many are saying the performance depicted students dressed as doctors and nurses holding SWAT team members at gunpoint. Two Brookhaven police officers were killed in the line of duty responding to a shots fired call last week.

    When Daniel Payne, a white junior at the University of Mississippi, saw that a major benefactor of the journalism school he attends had posted racially insensitive comments on social media, he immediately thought “it was going to be really, really bad.” The post on Facebook was written by Ed Meek, 77, a Mississippi graduate and media entrepreneur. In his post, Mr. Meek complained of deteriorating property values around the university campus and declining enrollment. He attached a photo of two young black students wearing party dresses, suggesting that they — or people who looked like them — were responsible for...

    Regardless of whether Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is ultimately confirmed by the Senate or not, the circus surrounding it will have a tremendous impact on our body politic. The #MeToo movement, which has helped many female victims receive long-begotten justice in high-profile cases, is now being utilized as a partisan weapon by the Democratic Party, who will stoop to any level to manipulate the emotions of the citizenry to win November's crucial mid-term elections.All Republicans need to take a deep breath, shake themselves out of their cloud of anger, and try to learn lessons from the chaos and calamity...

    The performance of women this week – from Senator Dianne Feinstein to Christine Blasey Ford to the howling mobs on Capitol Hill – made me seriously consider surgically altering my sex. They are demanding special treatment because of their sex and in the process placing all of us – male and female alike – at peril of witch hunts against men and then, in time, against all who will not bow to their rule. My Facebook friend Alex Bensky reminded me of the advantage to me of transgendering: Ah, then we'd be unable to criticize your politics, your social viewpoints,...

    I mentioned with Tucker the other night the condescension of Gentleman Jim Acosta, who airily presumes that, if you're a woman, any woman, you believe the accuser and assume this Kavanaugh guy is a serial gang-rapist. That's how it goes: Identity politics makes moron cultures of formerly sophisticated societies. So it was inevitable that when a picture from yesterday's hearing popped up, of the judge with three females sitting behind him, the wankerati of Twitter immediately assumed that they were just three regular all-American women staring in disgust at the rape beast of Bethesda. In fact, they were Kavanaugh's wife,...

    A disagreement between Chinese tourists and a hostel in Stockholm over check-in time has turned into a diplomatic spat between China and Sweden, after Beijing criticised Sweden for violating the human rights of Chinese citizens. [snip] Bizarre video footage posted online shows police carrying the group outside, while the son yells in English: “This is killing. This is killing.” Another clip shows the three lying on the ground crying loudly while the mother wails in Chinese: “Save me.” [snip] “I broke down and lost my mind,” Zeng said. “I was not able to think whether it was appropriate or not....

    India has just legalized gay sex. This is roughly one-sixth of the world's population. A few years ago, this would have been unthinkable. What happened? An admission about homosexual influences, by a famous documentary, does much to explain society today. We must first go back to the 1960s, to an amazing documentary by CBS, hosted by Mike Wallace, called "The Homosexuals."In the documentary, Mike Wallace noted that, as late as 1967: Most Americans are repelled by the mere notion of homosexuality. A CBS news survey shows that two out of three Americans look upon homosexuals with disgust, discomfort or fear…...
