Why do civil wars so frequently follow successful wars of independence - where rather than enjoy this new freedom from a foreign ruler and generally oppressor, so often divisions immediately lead to more war. People can point to the particular details that lead to such divisions and strife, but I think the real or deeper reason is you can’t just neatly put a lid on the kind of very powerful, violent energies that have been let loose during war, regardless of whether the cause that instigated them has seemingly been won. Similarly you can’t just ask a gambling addict why doesn’t he just quit his self-harming addiction since it doesn’t make rational sense for him to go on with it.

This is not going to be satirical. When is it not going to be satirical? In the future I suppose. But what about in the present - is it going to be satirical then? I can’t say about that. I thought I’d covered everything, but it turns out I hadn’t really covered anything.

Girl Reading a Letter by an Open Window by Vermeer. I think Aldous Huxley described Vermeer as a painter of human still lives. Interesting how much of the picture is taken up by all that space above the woman. Minutes later I see that this painting was restored in 2021 to how Vermeer originally completed it, with much less of that empty space that I’d found so unusual.

Noted author Barack Obama has a new book out, Call to Truth - How To Follow My Dreams. This is how the book opens:
I always knew I was special. There was something about me. I could feel it, and people like Joe Biden and Bono could feel it too. And not only could we feel it, more importantly we knew it. I will share here some of the steps that will enable you to participate as an equal and active shareholder in that knowledge also - whoever you may or may not be.
A new song from those perennial hard working rockers, The Populace, has just been released. It’s titled Love Song to Our Leaders (Curb Our Freedoms Now) and very much harks back to the golden age of long-haired anthemic, stadium rock songs of years past. Some lyrics below (remember these are belted out in full voice):

Out of love for oppressed sections of humankind, the Disney Corporation will henceforth actively discourage in all its magical, fairytale manifestations - films, theme parks, etc - use of the inflammatory and discriminatory terms “boys and girls”. Initially it was thought of replacing these bigoted words with simply “children”, but having decided that this word is also problematic, loaded as it is with all kinds of historical inferences and prejudices, instead the Disney Corporation has decided to go with “birthed persons who for now are identified as underage”. Research suggests this term is likely to cause least damage to the vulnerable.
Deep State Cabal are embarking on a world tour in support of their newest long-playing album release Nazis, Pedos and Commies (Are Some of My Best Friends). They will be supported on the tour by both Fake News Shitstorm and The Fact Checkers. Everyone involved is said to be excited, nervous and quadruple jabbed.

A very interesting article on the history of Ukrainian nationalism over the past century or so, and how enmeshed it has been with Nazism, stemming particularly from how an alliance with Germany was helping in the war against the Bolsheviks at the end of WW1, and then later allying with Hitler against that same communist regime. It worked out as not just a marriage of convenience but rather a very deep ideological entwining of Ukrainian nationalism and Nazism.
The article writes on how the West has been deeply involved in intentionally “grooming neo-Nazis’ in Ukraine for quite a while. I could lift much more dramatic stuff from he article but just to show this is not a faded issue of the past:

Can I manage to finish this picture? Getting a change of perspective can actually help - like taking a photo of it and then obvious things becoming apparent that you’d gotten too close to in the flesh, so to speak. And then, who knows, in the race against time, or what happens in time, you might even end up satisfactorily finishing it rather than completely ruining it!

“Can a woman have a penis?” This UK political leader finds this question much too difficult to answer. He would probably have struggled in biology exams back in his school days. It’s doubtful his confused ramblings to the simplest of questions would have met with much reward. He might though, in compensation, have been recommended to go for some form of psychological assessment. That could have been an interesting day out for him. “Do you understand the difference between boys and girls, Keir? Do you know why in school you go to separate bathrooms?” Sullen silence and an occasional darted glance of hatred from Keir. “One day the forces of oppression will pay,” he promises himself. “Blood will flow and the banner of freedom will be raised. It is a matter of destiny. My destiny. And theirs.”
The confused man, for anyone who doesn’t know, is Keir Starmer, the leader of the British Labour Party - I just about do know. You might recall, the supposed whole reason for existence for a left-wing party like the Labour Party used to be to represent the interests of the working classes: the basic realities of day to day living - food on the table, coal on the fire, clothes on one’s back, the children in school - all that kind of matter of fact stuff. After a while though I suppose that must have all gotten a bit obvious and boring, and so now they have moved onto more intellectually stimulating issues, things that involve a certain refinement and civilisation of one’s consciousness. They care, these guardians, just as much as they ever did, it’s just that now they care about slightly different things - like can a woman have a penis. They’re still of course deeply rooted in the matter of fact realities of existence, but it turns out, thanks most likely especially to the efforts of bourgeois, dried up, academic neurotics - that perennial vanguard of the working classes - that we may have to redefine some of what these matter of fact realities actually are.
As the pinned comment to the above video reminds us, these servants of derangement are the people who were telling us for the last couple of years to “trust the science.” I have my doubts that their allegiance to science is particularly pronounced.
