The Problem Of Democratic Sovereignty
Posted on

This post appeared first on XYZ.

This is the second in a series looking at sovereignty and political legitimacy in Western countries today. The first piece explored the problem of democratic legitimacy under socialism.

The mood among the establishment media has shifted noticeably since the French election. Gone is the post-Trump melancholia. Lovers of the globalist status quo seem to have convinced themselves that Brexit and Trump were just anomalies, and that the new world disorder of open borders, cultural Marxism against whites and unfettered corporate neoliberalism is back on track.

They’re wrong. Macron is a puppet of the globalists, sure, yet the establishment parties which have ruled France for decades were roundly rejected.… Read the rest

No Representation Without Taxation

There is an anecdote in Augustine’s great work ‘City of God’ of a conversation between Alexander the Great and a famous pirate named Diomedes. It was written 700 years after the events were supposed to have taken place, by a man living in North Africa under the Roman Empire just before the lights of civilisation went out permanently there.

In the exchange, Alexander asks Diomedes why he plagues the seas. The pirate contemptuously responds, ‘The same reason as you do the world, but while I operate with one boat, I am called a robber; but since you have a great fleet, you are called emperor.’

This exchange goes to the heart of what makes governments legitimate.… Read the rest

Academics: Smug High Priests Of The Establishment
Posted on

The establishment media are scrambling these days. Not only are they floundering financially as the internet destroys their business model, they are also losing their century-long control over the narratives that people use to interpret the world. This is the true power of media – to frame the perceptions that the people of a nation use to determine reality. It is the power to direct the herd, to write the history of the future beforehand and determine the boundaries of the Overton Window of socially acceptable speech, and therefore thought.

In democratic political systems, this might be the greatest power of all.… Read the rest

American Totalitarianism Wears A Black Mask
Posted on

This piece appeared first on The Daily Caller.

It is no surprise that Berkeley, California has become the scene of another significant battle in the culture war which has erupted across America in recent months. Berkeley is a bastion of the American neo-Marxist left and is at the heart of their 60’s mythology. Last weekend though, for the first time in living memory, the totalitarian American left was defeated on their home turf.

The motley assortment of anti-leftists who came to Berkeley to attend a free speech event organized by independent journalist Lauren Southern were able to push Antifa back despite the actions of the Berkeley Police Department.… Read the rest

Totalitarian Censorship On Social Media
Posted on

This piece appeared first on XYZ.

According to Facebook, I’m a purveyor of nudity on social media. Thankfully my wife hasn’t found out. Wouldn’t make for a great Easter long weekend.

The post in question was an article I shared from altright.com dealing with the mainstream media’s silence about Ebba Akerlund, an 11-year-old victim of the recent Stockholm Islamic attack (the one with the truck in the market, if you can’t keep up). The image in question is this one.

Ebba Akerlund, 11-year-old victim of Islamic aggression

When I look at that image, I’m not offended by ‘nudity’. Given that public censorship of nudity is usually related to sexualisation, I find such an accusation by Facebook to be deeply, deeply revolting.… Read the rest

All Deluded On The Western Front
Posted on

This piece first appeared on The Daily Caller.

The blast from the 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles which President Trump ordered to strike the al-Shayrat airfield in Syria on Thursday has since reverberated around the world. Many Americans are still waiting for the smoke to clear, to make sense of exactly what happened and why.

President Trump and his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson are unanimous in their conviction that the regime of Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons on his own people, thus justifying the attack. Everyday Americans are rightly skeptical when it comes to weapons of mass destruction being used to justify a possible war.… Read the rest

The PM’s Proposition To Murder Australia
Posted on

This piece first appeared on XYZ.

Apparently Australia has a ‘multicultural statement’ put forth via proclamation by the Prime Minister. Did you know? I didn’t. Is this something all countries have signed up for? I doubt it. Do Afghanistan or Belarus or Kazakhstan or Zimbabwe have such a thing? If no, why not? Why are we always so special, Prime Minister? Why are they a distinct people with a distinct biological, cultural and ethnic identity and we are not?

What it seems to really mean is that, every once in a while, the top puppet parliamentarian gets to play with the wording of what defines your, and my, national identity.… Read the rest

The Womb Is Cultural Marxism’s Gas Chamber
Posted on

This piece first appeared on XYZ.

Many on the left have only recently become exposed to the ‘alt’ ideas of the various components of the anti-establishment movement. It’s like they woke up one day during the presidential election and suddenly noticed the alt media, alt news, the alt right and its less race-focused cousin the alt light. Lazy neo-Marxist pseudo-intellectuals suddenly panicked at the philosophical challenges posed by movements such as cultural libertarianism, neoreaction, traditionalism, civilisationism and white identitarianism. The left have been put on notice that their victory lap around Western culture is done and the fight was not yet over.… Read the rest

Multiculturalism Is No Culture At All
Posted on

This piece first appeared on XYZ.

Some troubling events have been occurring on the Korean peninsula recently. The global anti-establishment rebellion has manifested in that country as an uprising against President Park Geunhye’s corrupt regime and the personal influence of a Rasputin-type figure who seemed to control the presidency indirectly for the benefit of herself and her family. This is happening while that cruel piglet dictator Kim Jongun is knocking off his brother and making even China nervous about what he’ll do next. Into that volatile mix is the American attempt to deploy THAAD anti-missile batteries to protect against northern aggression.… Read the rest
