Reader’s Links for August 26, 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.

  1. Yesterday the man working in the lumber yard was babbling on. Besides saying he was double vaxxed I didn’t really get what he was talking about. Something about the upcoming election.

    Some people take considerable pride in their vaxxed status. They have done their civic duty and expect it of others. I believe most now presume that others in their midst have received the injection, which may be why the question about being vaxxed seems to be waning. In the beginning our masters called it a war in order to get people into the old-fashioned war effort frame of mind. Everyone pulls together against the enemy, and all that stuff.

    Then there are The Others. These are the misfits who refuse to play along. Somehow the whole pandemic narrative never clicked with them. They will not be convinced because they are better informed than the other 75% of the population, or else they have an allergy to collectivist propaganda, or both. The Others also feel they are doing their civic duty even though the Vaxxed see them as selfish. This couldn’t be further from the truth because it is The Others who will, and who are, paying the price for their sincere conviction. It is also the good doctors who question the vaxx, and who risk their careers for doing so, who should be the most trusted sources of truth on the matter precisely because of the price they pay. The likes of Fauci are rich as a result of propaganda, not truth telling. The Others look at Fauci, Gates, Biden, Trudeau, Johnson and other opinion leaders and see they are benefactors of their disingenuousness. And no bridges are being built by this propaganda effort. In fact bridges are being burned by thinly-veiled authoritarianism based on dubious science and coercion.

    In my debate with my Israeli friend the other day, after he ordered me twice to be injected while dismissing my arguments, I asked him why doesn’t he place a yellow star on my front door? It’s not the same, he said. Why not? I asked.

    Every time humanity veers off onto this road of communism or fascism and kills a few hundred million, we write our history and say “…never again,” dang it, like a delinquent ex-smoker who just can’t help himself.

    While we aren’t quite honey bees, we clearly have an elemental, collectivist impulse in our genetics. This impulse is definitely useful for our survival, but is also a defect when invoked by bad actors who read it like the book of exploitation.

    When a bee hive nears capacity some of the bees sense it and set about making a new queen. It is their preparation for the day when the hive splits and some bees leave to start anew. This propogates the species. The human version is more violent. Ideological “space” is relevant, too, in this animal. This is why we have America.

    Judging by history the human bee chooses to try to exterminate its own rather than allow a new hive. And it isn’t a question of available physical space, because it has been our practice forever.

    I realize this to be a very rough metaphor, but our expectation of compromise on the subject of the vaxx seems dark and distant, and I struggle to find a constructive context in which to place it. What the world needs now is more vaxxed Others to help bridge the divide. Maybe they are on their way:

    When will it be time to listen to what the jihadists tell us about their faith-based hostility and ambitions?

    The debacle in Afghanistan is first and foremost the consequence of the Biden foreign policy team’s spectacular incompetence. Setting a date-certain withdrawal was in itself a blunder, signaling the Taliban that all they had to do was to keep telling us what we wanted to hear and then wait, but withdrawing troops and abandoning Bagram airbase before evacuating our citizens was willful stupidity. It left the Afghan army vulnerable, and ceded the skies to the enemy. So too was leaving behind billions in advanced armaments for the Taliban. There’s no question that Biden’s name will forever be linked to one of the worst military blunders in the postwar period.

    But an older error set the stage for bad decisions that have empowered modern jihadism for forty years––the failure to understand the true nature of Islam as documented in 1400 years of practice and doctrine. As a result, we have pursued policies based on delusion and false paradigms.

    The first mistake was our misreading of the 1978-79 Iranian Revolution and the kidnapping of our embassy staff in November 1979. Jimmy Carter’s feckless response followed the stale narrative of anti-colonial resistance to our Cold War self-interested disregard for aspirations to national self-determination, political freedom, and human rights. Our ally the Shah of Iran, despite Iran’s geostrategic and economic importance, fell victim to Carter’s naïve belief that “moral principles” and “idealism” were more significant than military readiness and a realist willingness to use force to protect our national interests and allies. Misled by that paradigm, Carter withheld support from the Shah, assuming that a secular coalition would replace him.

    What Marxists and globalist America-haters have been waiting their whole lives for.

    Call this suicide by Democrat.

    We have suicide bombers in the White House. We have suicide bombers in our governor’s mansions. Worst of all, we have suicide bombers directing the U.S. economy.

    This is the Titanic. This is the Hindenburg. We are headed for disaster.

    New York City now demands vaccine passports to go into any restaurant, bar, nightclub, gym — even retail store. Los Angeles followed suit. So did San Francisco and New Orleans. How many more will follow?

    Las Vegas, my home, the entertainment capital of the world, isn’t far behind. You now need proof of vaccination to enter concerts, conventions, even Allegiant Stadium, the home of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders. Will restaurants, gyms and retail stores be far behind?

    This is madness. This is economic suicide. Either Democrats are ignorant morons, or this is the final Democrat plan to destroy capitalism by putting every business owner out of business. After all, this is what socialists, Marxists, communists and globalist America-haters have been waiting their whole lives for.

    They’re here.

    This is not about Afghanistan per se. Rather, it concerns civilization and savagery and what it takes to maintain one and avoid the other.

    Most Americans (historical illiterates that they are) assume that what we have now – the hard-won fruits of civilization – are organic, that they sprung full-blown from the brow of Jefferson, or one of the Founding Fathers who didn’t own slaves, maybe the one they made a musical about.

    A while back, so the story goes, a bunch of Europeans who believed in diversity and inclusiveness sailed over here and decided it would be really cool to have a country with representative government, where civil liberties were respected and the masses could keep what they earned.

    Seriously, civilization is always a goal reached after a long and arduous struggle. It’s never handed to you gift-wrapped. Americans had to break a millennial-old pattern to get to where we are now.

    Throughout most of history, there were rulers and subjects – conquerors and enslaved populations. The Huns, the Vikings and Visigoths, Muslim warriors, Mongols and Manchus…they were the norm.

    Military Source in Afghanistan sent me this video of the bombing aftermath showing bloodied innocent Afghan civilians bodies everywhere. Source says “So far I’m hearing confirmed 2 USF KIA at the airport.”
    NYT says +40 dead. Joe Biden has blood on his hands.
