Reader’s links for June 29, 2021

Each day at just after midnight Eastern, a post like this one is created for contributors and readers of this site to upload news links and video links on the issues that concern this site. Most notably, Islam and its effects on Classical Civilization, and various forms of leftism from Soviet era communism, to postmodernism and all the flavours of galloping statism and totalitarianism such as Nazism and Fascism which are increasingly snuffing out the classical liberalism which created our near, miraculous civilization the West has been building since the time of Socrates.

This document was written around the time this site was created, for those who wish to understand what this site is about. And while our understanding of the world and events has grown since then, the basic ideas remain sound and true to the purpose.

So please post all links, thoughts and ideas that you feel will benefit the readers of this site to the comments under this post each day. And thank you all for your contributions.

This is the new Samizdat. We must use it while we can.

  2. Germany: Dozens of Pegida supporters march in Dresden

    Dozens of Pegida (Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the Occident) supporters marched in the streets of Dresden on Monday, in a protest held days after a deadly knife attack in Wurzburg.

    The supporters of the movement gathered briefly in the city’s Old Town before marching.

    Left-wing demonstrators were seen standing at some points of the route of the Pegida demonstration, holding banners decrying racism with police separating the two groups.

    The rally was held following last week’s events in Wurzburg, where a Somali suspect stabbed to death three women and left several people injured.

    The motives of the assault are not yet clear.

  3. Russia’s Unprecedented Mandatory Vaccination Push Divides Society
    Russian officials are desperate to get citizens vaccinated in a nation that distrusts vaccines.

    On the morning of June 16, employees at Moscow coffee-shop chain Skuratov were told they’d have to get vaccines against the coronavirus if they wanted to keep their jobs….

    Later that day, Moscow mayor Sergei Sobyanin announced the world’s widest-reaching compulsory Covid-19 vaccination policy, decreeing that state and service sector workers would be required to have jabs to counteract what he called a “dramatic” public health situation.

    Moscow’s push for mandatory vaccination underlined a failing vaccination program, which has seen only around 13% of residents receiving jabs despite their free availability in the Russian capital since December….

    Sobyanin’s call for mandatory vaccinations – requiring businesses to ensure 60% of their employees are dosed – reflects a worsening pandemic situation in the Russian capital and will affect two million people.

    Even as Europe and North America have seen cases and mortality in steady decline amid wide-ranging inoculation, in Russia daily case increases have returned to last year’s peak, with Moscow authorities warning that the capital is running out of hospital beds.

    Despite over 60% of Russians opposing obligatory vaccinations, according to a poll released Thursday, authorities in other regions have announced similar moves, and President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov has backed the policy….

    The chief doctor of Moscow’s main Covid-19 hospital, Denis Protsenko, said last week that hospital patients were not responding to treatments that were previously effective, indicating that mutated Covid-19 strains are present in the capital….

    According to a February survey by the independent Levada Center pollster, 64% of Russians believe the conspiracy theory that the coronavirus is a bioweapon created by humans….

    “Compulsory vaccination is amoral, illegal,” said Yevgeny Stupin, a Communist lawmaker in the Moscow City Council, who has campaigned against pandemic restrictions, alongside much of his party.

    “Vaccination is a personal choice. These vaccines haven’t been fully tested, we don’t know what their side effects are.”

    Victory over the virus

    According to R.Politik’s Stanovaya, the move is less a risk to the Kremlin’s political prospects than an indictment of its broader handling of the pandemic. She noted that senior officials, including Putin, have repeatedly declared victory over the virus in recent weeks.

    “They are acting from a position of weakness,” she said. “For a long time the Kremlin was saying it had defeated the pandemic.”

    “Now, doctors are panicking and the authorities have no choice but to act. But at the same time people don’t want to get vaccinated. So the government needs to find a balance.”

    On the ground in Moscow, however, service employees are already thinking up ways to sidestep the new requirements.

    “I am going to ask my bosses to make me one of the 40% that doesn’t need to get vaccinated,” said 29-year-old electronics shop worker Dmitry. “I don’t trust this vaccine.”

    “These compulsory measures are absurd, unconstitutional. But what can I do? I’d like to keep my job.”
