We must defend our culture from these six month old bigots. It’s actually terrifying how much hate these babies are spreading. Only remorseless left-wing indoctrination and a totalitarian state can save us.

I was reading an article written by Dostoevsky, broadly about literacy, and while wholly promoting its desirability and spreading in 1860s Russia, he addressed one apparent point of the time which was a considerably higher proportion of literary peasants ending up in jail than the much more numerous illiterate. Just the line I’ll show seems very appropriate as to why it is from academic circles so much toxic and inane ‘progressive’ ideas emanate. Remember just because one is dealing with fields such as social philosophy doesn’t mean human nature has obediently left the scene! There can be all too human kinds of vanities and egotistical desires lurking within such sphere, and in truth the whole essence of of various movements, isms - socialism, fascism, etc - is to be vehicles for those desires. Anyway Dostoevsky’s line:
All we wished to show was how literacy as a kind of privilege can give rise to arrogance and presumptuousness and lack of respect for one’s own environment and social position.
And so with their various progressive theories, critical race theory, etc bred within the academic environments, that for their protagonists are felt internally as marks of their superiority over the ignorant hordes, and vehicles of power over them, well Dostoevsky’s line above gives us the underlying psychological essence of all this inane intellectual perversion. Also regarding “lack of respect for one’s own environment”: disrespecting one’s own nation’s flag or anthem is one of the most obvious visible manifestations of modern progressivism, even perhaps when paid in sport to represent that nation!

Watch a Brit stand up for Americans and stomp on these US school board commie/fascist pricks! This is fantastic. The second video shows the kind of unbelievable tyrannical creeps he’s reacting so strongly against. And these are what are called liberals - what the hell are they supposed to be liberal about?! They’re about as liberal as a gulag. Footage there of them in action in the person of their acting head is from the third minute on. The idea of the education of children in the hands of these kinds of people . . . It should be seen very clearly these elements, acting as they are, are utter traitors to their people and nation; and as you’ll see, this guy is not making the mistake of trying to be nice to them. Screwed up toxic bullies don’t get too impacted or impressed by people they consider enemies to their egos being polite and nice to them.
“And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword”
I suppose if that was one of the talents Isaiah was given, he was probably supposed to exercise it. Picasso said art was an instrument of war, and so of course can the word. But I must say I can only hope Isaiah never hurt anyone’s feelings with that mouth of his.

One quick effort to encapsulate something of what I mean by genius. Of course it includes extreme intelligence, but it is not something which can be measured, like an iq test. That is simply a scale of some kind of intelligence which can be measured and understood by other intelligences. It is within the realms of reasoning.

[I slightly altered the following piece written a little while previously in honour of a true hero of all of ours, and so here I humbly place it before whoever’s eyes and minds it may encounter.]
Barack Obama has a new book coming out called The Bootcamp Years. Oh no sorry, a quick look reveals its actual title is A Promised Land. The mix-up was both understandable and excusable. Other titles of his I see include, upon this quick fact check, Dreams From My Father, The Audacity of Hope and of course Of Thee I Sing - A Letter to My Daughters. There is also Be Vigilant But Not Afraid.
What an arsehole. Has he no shame? “No, no! It’s so beautiful!” Yes, yes, the fault I see is mine. It’s just so unusual, so unexpected to meet with such unashamed, unironical and remorseless integrity of spirit, this vision of virtue in human motion - and so, all in all, I lacked the purity within to accept such purity without. You may criticise me but you may not judge me. Anyway, arising from my shame and contrition, I will try to work some of his inspiration into future conversations. It’s the least I can do.

By Pieter Bruegel from around 1560, although I see it is now considered more likely a copy of Bruegel’s original rather than the original work itself. It’s a quite typical and almost humorous Bruegelian detail that we have to look closely to even spot Icarus in the painting, in the front right of the painting, as he disappears into the water, between the man on the shore and the galleon. There can be a homeliness and tenderness towards ordinary life in northern Renaissance and particularly Dutch painting of that time that gives a very refreshing contrast to the more overtly intellectual and often epic seriousness of the Italian Renaissance.
And now it’s just striking me that the treatment of Icarus by Bruegel in the painting may be intentional: that Bruegel is, rather than treating such ancient hallowed classical themes with traditional respect, is almost disparagingly dismissing them as an even silly detail within the natural life. And regardless of whether this is Bruegel’s overt intent or not, this is how the painting comes off. I don’t think anyone could seriously experience the tragedy of Icarus as somehow dominating this painting, in both external drama and psychological or emotional mood.

Here we go again, just because we can. Below, despite perhaps appearances, is apparently the same person, not two separate people. The lower picture is how Joe Biden used to look shortly before he began to look the way he does now. A special shout out of course to that wondrous shape-shifting right ear.

Dustin of streetministries seven in a park in Chicago. The reaction of the first woman in the video is so extreme that it’s reasonable to wonder what’s going on, but anyway I’m not interested in trying to coerce anyone into beliefs. I didn’t watch anything like all of it but just to draw attention to 26:40 or so into the video for some of the unlikely people here.

A song relating to the Falklands War and the thought of this bringing work back to closed shipyards in Britain. Music by someone called Clive Langer who asked Elvis Costello to come up with lyrics, and he appears here in the video on guitar where it is sung by Robert Wyatt.
We see here the Biden administration decide to substitute at a pretty official level “birthing people” for mothers, because it’s supposedly more precise. Hopefully that will shore up a lot of confusion about the nature of the kind of people who specifically give birth - they are birthing people.
I remember when first hearing of political correctness as some phenomenon arising in the US, not knowing what it was but I think my felt but unarticulated impression was of some kind of artificial, sterile, bureaucratic spirit inserting itself into life. Now these years later we see it coming into something like full fruition. I don’t think it needs arguing the people in sway to this spirit are pathetic and crazy. They really have fatally split from their common sense. These aren’t deep, fascinating intellectual issues and avenues. They are having to go out of their way to be as artificial and stupid as possible. I see on the YouTube page a couple of comments on the abandoning of “mothers” or “moms” that it is so dehumanising in the attitude towards moms, and ‘“Birthing people” is something aliens would call mothers on earth.’
In spiritual terms with things like lust or greed or anger and so on, these are spirits, like there is a spirit of envy, and actually people through somehow opening of doors, may become possessed by specific spirits or demons who specialise in one of these areas. Whether one believes in this or not it is clear that with all these phenomena, like say pornography or a gambling or drug addiction, things don’t stay at the same level once giving into it. The autonomous self may to a large degree vacate the premises, and what is left is a host to this urge which becomes more extreme in its desires. This will happen in gambling even to the point of total self-ruining in a short space of time. So we can say the relevant spirit is suicidally opposed to the well-being of us, and yet even still we may again and again succumb to it. The specific mission of each of these spirits is to literally drag us down. I think actually even in ordinary intellectual use, rather than perversely looking for mystery, a genuine inimical and evil spirit is actually the most sensible in understanding what’s going on here.
Either way though, there is unarguably a spirit of lust, anger, greed and so on which all don’t just reach a certain reasonable point of satisfaction and then retreat back to respectability. No, they all lead into further and further extremes. And with this political correctness, it’s the same thing. My vague feeling as a child was correct, and it is a spirit that is inimical to life, and if allowed would go further and further along its horrible pathways. Almost humorously to add it’s obvious the visceral pull of temptations like pornography, gambling and so on, but what kind of freaks get drawn into the temptation of political correctness! Academic arseholes is coming to mind! Though to add, pathetic and stupid as it is, it is definitely far from benign in its potential for harm. And actually there is a more basic psychological nature to the temptation here as the drive to power, or will to power, is very primal, and with all these progressive emanations and ideologies, these do very much come within that umbrella.
