(It truly is amazing how a person’s most confidential mental health records can be accessed by the media before they even get his name. Brave new world indeed.)
2. Here is a TV debate between a rational lawyer in the Czech republic and what has become known in Europe as, “a Sunshiner”, a quasi pejorative for someone who uses flowery language to support all things foreign and especially multiculturalism.
What is interesting is that it was filmed on Czech TV in August 2015 but not released till just over a week ago. Special thanks to Xanthippa for translating it and Gates of Vienna for the text editing.
WARNIG: The rhetoric of the “Sunshiner” may cause some hypertension in reasonable people. Please watch responsibly.
3. Here is an old battle song from Poland which seems oddly appropriate again, even though it appears to have been written in, or around, Roman times. Ava Lon, who translated and timed the words for us, may want to explain the details of it in the comments. But meanwhile its interesting that it was redone and uploaded more recently.
4. Video made by what appear to be Canadian prisoners of the Taliban in Afghanistan. They manage to express what their captors want said, while transmitting their incredulity at the nature of it quite well.
I do not know the back story on who they are yet or how they happened to come to be there. But those thinking of visiting a Muslim country may want to watch this video first.
Are US schools and other institutions being rapidly tranformed into institutions of cultural Marxism?
Thank you M., Wrath of Khan, Maria J., Ava Lon and so many more who work daily, and often all day, to try and find and decode the data that can give some indication of how the world actually operates today.
More of course is in the daily links post and more to come as well from the Los Angeles conference from August 21st. There are still quite a few very interesting speakers, even if they are a little less well known. The next one, is quite an interesting man from France.Hopefully this afternoon.
