Quotes of the Week

Enlightened insights taken from the past week’s reading:

"Don’t fall for it.  We’ve all observed for decades what Leftists mean by 'unity.'  It means you are smeared, libeled, slandared, called a racist, sexist, homophobe, Nazi, fascist, fired from your job, or worse, for voicing opinions that they disagree with.  You lose your job, as some have, for saying all lives matter and not just black lives. As a college student you must remain silent and never question the campus communist orthodoxy, or else your social life will be ruined and your grades will plummet.  If a conservative or libertarian is hired by a university, he or she will be like a unicorn at the zoo for the rest of his or her career.  If a conservative or libertarian is invited to speak at a university by a student group (never by faculty), there may be riots, setting fire to buildings, and physical assaults of the speaker and his sponsors.  Question the 'climate change' agenda of abolishing the oil and gas industries, cars, airplanes, and cows, then you will be called a 'denier,' a nutjob that is the equivalent of a Holocaust denier.  Show up at a political event sponsored by a conservative politician, and you may be beaten or even shot dead by the Left’s military wing, Antifa and Only Black Lives Matter.

What the American Left means by 'unity,' in other words, is turning America into a twenty-first century Soviet Union without the smile.  Tell anyone who mentions the word 'unity' to you in a political context to go to hell."

Tom DiLorenzo

"The great masquerader, beri beri, has fooled the world once again.  It is misdiagnosed as this disease or that disease.  In modern medicine a B1-deficiency is seen by cardiologists, neurologists, pulmonologists, psychiatrists, virologists, bacteriologists, ophthalmologists, nephrologists, hepatologists, who are simply not trained that beri beri cannot be anatomically compartmentalized like other diseases.

Because modern medicine is looking in all the wrong places to cure and prevent COVID-19, there will never be a cure.  The world will be held in perpetual lockdown.  Vaccination will be an exercise in frustration.  The cure will be more deadly than the disease."

Bill Sardi

"You could make a case that US defense spending is so high because of inefficiency and enormous profits hidden in 'cost overruns.'  If so, then increased real spending should come from strict budetary measures and oversight.  We should not be accepting a military spending system that cannot account for trillions of dollars and is so poorly controlled that it cannot be audited.  Will patriotic conservatives ever realize that blind support for the Pentagon allows the massive rip-off of taxpayers and the neglect of real needs all for nothing but out-sized profits of arms makers? 

The military/security complex makes certain that no moves toward peace can succeed.  Its lobbyists have succeeded in undoing all the arms control agreements reached with Russia since the 1960s.  Russia’s President Putin has made repeated offers to extend the last remaining nuclear arms control treaty, but Washington has rejected his offer out of hand.  The reason is obvious.  The corrupt puppet regime of Obama agreed to a trillion dollar increase in nuclear weapons spending, and the military/security complex means to get that money."

Paul Craig Roberts

"This is a common theme throughout history: empires rise and fall, not because of a single individual, but from decades of major trends that gradually cause an inevitable decline. 

These same trends keep surfacing over and over again across the centuries.

Economic mismanagement is an obvious one: empires in decline almost invariably hold an arrogant belief that they are exempt from the natural laws of finance.

In other words, they believe they can spend as much as they want, accumulate infinite amounts of debt, and debase their currency without limit, and somehow there won’t be any consequences.

Another trend is that the empire abandons its core values. Integrity, civic-mindedness, and hard work give way to corruption and entitlement. 

And perhaps the biggest trend of empires in decline is that society frequently turns on itself. Civility ends, and rage takes over.

It goes without saying that these trends are alive and well in the West today, especially in the Land of the Free."

Simon Black

"We must learn that passively to accept an unjust system is to cooperate with that system, and thereby to become a participant in its evil."

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"In order to become wealthy you have to produce more than you consume and save the difference. Saving the difference builds capital. And you need capital to create more wealth. 

Countries without capital are poor. Places like Zimbabwe, Cuba, and Mauritania. The only capital they have is sticks and stones.

The US government is in effect training people to consume more than they produce. Now, you can do that in basically two ways. One, by borrowing capital that’s been saved and created in the past, and consuming it. Or, two, you can do it by mortgaging your future.

It’s not a pro-survival policy to consume more than you produce. It’s possible for a while, of course, but will wind up in disaster. The US government is encouraging people to do just that, however, directly and indirectly."

Doug Casey

"Everyone wants to argue. Everyone does. Everyone needs to. While birds can fly, only humans can argue. Argument is the affirmation of our being. It is the principal instrument of human intercourse. Without argument the species would perish. As a subtle suggestion, it is the means by which we aid another. As a warning, it steers us from danger. As exposition, it teaches. As an expression of creativity, it is the gift of ourselves. As a protest, it struggles for justice. As a reasoned dialogue, it resolves disputes. As an assertion of self, it engenders respect. As an entreaty of love, it expresses our devotion. As a plea, it generates mercy. As charismatic oration it moves multitudes and changes history. We must argue — to help, to warn, to lead, to love, to create, to learn, to enjoy justice — to be."

Gerry Spence

"It’s not surprising at all that a 'medieval approach' to disease would also result in the deletion of so many modern advances in social/political understanding and consensus. It was reckless to the point of being evil. It has created a new feudalism of haves and have nots, essentials and unessentials, us and them, the served and the servers, the rulers and the ruled – all defined in the edicts passed by panicked dictators at all levels acting on the advice of bloodless intellectuals who couldn’t resist a chance to rule the world by force."

Jeffrey Tucker

"Politics in America is not a party system any longer. It is instead a repetitive and insulting process of pacifying the national will with the illusion of freedom and political choices.

The elites in the District of Criminals and the money power behind them are so far removed from the people over whom they lord and/or whom they employ, that they may as well be on a distant planet in another solar system. All the thoughts they think and all the things they do are designed to draw more power and more wealth into their control.

Every two years, whether it's in the off-year congressional election or the quadrennial presidential 'election,' the false paradigm is reinforced. The opposing candidates square off, promising change of this or that nature, and the people, hearing catchphrases and buzzwords that tickle their ears, fall in line and cast their votes. But regardless of whether this Republicrat or that Democan gets elected, nothing of consequence ever changes."

Bob Livingston

"'Limited government.' The term is not merely meaningless...

It is duller than dishwater. It inspires as an Alan Greenspan lecture on accounting practices inspires. It excites as drying paint excites.

We hear it and applaud... politely. We nod our heads dutifully. Limited government, yes, of course.

But how dreadful.

There were two great orators of antiquity, the Roman Cicero and the Greek Demosthenes.

When Cicero spoke the people said, 'What a great speech.' But when Demosthenes spoke? 'Let us march,' said the people.

How many march for limited government? Who goes to the barricades for limited government?

Many will march for 'Health Care for All.' 'Save the Planet.' 'Social Justice Now.'

These are the cries that awaken the blood. They summon the hormones.

They are calls to action that inspire us to run off and enlist… and charge into the breach.

Limited government inspires us to… snooze.

'Limited government' is a dismal marketing slogan. Would you wish to sell it for a living? Alas, you might starve.

Here is the cardinal sin of limited government: It is defensive.

The sob mongers and tear-squeezers forever shout about this crisis or that crisis. Only energetic government action can put it down and scotch it.

It may be the environment. Health care. Housing. Racism. Sexism. Income inequality. Bedbugs.

Anything, everything, A through Z.

This bunch is commonly perceived as the angels on our collective shoulder. They stand for social justice… and equality.

And who can come out against social justice and equality?

Certainly not politicians seeking office. And so they must budge.

Limited government therefore finds itself on the back foot, perpetually on the defense. Yet no successful defense can forever remain static.

The enemy ultimately punches through.

Limited government cedes ground year by year, decade by decade. It makes one tactical retreat after another. It gives a little here to gain a little there.

But it loses ground in the aggregate.

Thus limited government is a shifting line in the sand. It is erased and withdrawn as circumstances demand."

Brian Maher

"The rights of man are natural, and all rights stem from the single factor of life itself, for if man has a right to life, all other natural rights are inherent as well. A right to life means that one has a right to defend his life. It means that one has a right to support and sustain his life. This means he has a right to property, the highest form of property being self. It means he has a right to move about freely, to work, to protect others, to speak and congregate in order to protect and defend life. All individual and natural rights are inherent due to humanity, not to any other men or documents drafted by men. 

This seems simple enough, but Americans seem to clamor for direction and approval by those that wish to rule over them. Instead of accepting that a right to life is natural, and cannot be bestowed by men, people seek approval by some authoritarian class for clarity concerning the legitimacy of something so obvious. This in and of itself destroys the very core of common rights, because having to put into contract or law the guidelines for what is natural is the acceptance that rights do not exist unless sanctioned by a higher body. This is asinine, and the notion of a constitution to spell out what is inherent weakens any position of strength of the individual."

Gary D. Barnett

"To a group of politicians (including Nancy Pelosi) who seem, through wealth taxes and draconian regulations, determined to take everything away from us.

America barely survived eight years of 'You Didn't Build That'... but can we really survive eight years of 'You Don't Own That'? – I doubt it.

That's why I'm 'opting out.' 

And that's why millions of other people are too... including some of the most successful people in America, and even some corporations too.

Never in our country's history have more Americans abandoned their citizenship and given up their passports. What was once the land of the free and the home of the brave is slowly becoming the land of the politically enslaved and the home of the dependent.

Leaving America, for many, many people, has become the only way to safeguard their freedom and their property."

George Gilder

"Right now one blue state after another that supposedly'"followed the science,' is seeing a rise in [Covid] 'cases.' And all their people can do is blame their neighbors. Because, don't you know, the 'science' works! So if the 'science' isn't working, that means someone somewhere must not be sciencing."

Tom Woods

"A man is no less a slave because he is allowed to choose a new master once in a term of years."

Lysander Spooner

"Here’s something that perhaps we can all agree on:

The vaccine should be tested on politicians first.

If they survive, the vaccine is safe.

If they don’t the country is safe."

David Crosby

Quotes of the Week

Enlightened insights taken from the past week’s reading:

"Americans by and large are lovely people—open, generous, friendly, and quick to forgive. A hyperpoliticized environment, where everything is existential and rooted in race, sex, and sexuality, is deeply at odds with our character and well-being. We deserve to live peaceably as neighbors, even if that means breaking up and creating new political entities. Addressing the reality of our dysfunction is not divisive; the divide already exists. Our task is to apprehend this and end the charade of one nation."

Jeff Deist

"I will not vote again; they’ve made it abundantly clear that my voice doesn’t matter. Whatever irrational, suicidal lunacy the nanny states thinks is best is what I’ll get. What it decided I need is a geriatric pedophile who shouldn’t be charged with anything more rigorous than choosing between tapioca and rice pudding at the old folks home, and a casting couch skank who rails against racism while being a descendant of slave owners.

I am done. Don’t ask me to pledge to the flag, or salute the troops, or shoot fireworks on the 4th. It’s a sick, twisted, heartbreaking joke, this bloated, unrecognizable corpse of a republic that once was ours.

I am not alone. Not sure how things continue to function when millions of citizens no longer feel any loyalty to or from the society they live in.

I was raised to be a lady, and ladies don’t curse, but fuck these motherfuckers to hell and back for what they’ve done to me, and mine, and my country. All we Joe Blow Americans ever wanted was a little patch of land to raise a family, a job to pay the bills, and at least some illusion of freedom, and even that was too much for these human parasites. They want it all, mind, body and soul. Damn them. Damn them all."


"White Americans, being essentially an insouciant people, have no comprehension of how demonized white people are.  Of course, no one tells them, and they are too busy with their golf game, watching their college football team, and remodeling the kitchen to care.  Whiteness is so demonized that it is destroying science, 'a white construct' and thereby racist. Physics itself has been declared to be 'a mirror of colonial patterns and social inequalty.' (2).

Even mathematics is now declared to be racist by white mathematicians themselves—the Mathematical Association of America.  Mathematics, the brainwashed mathematicians say, is polluted with racism.  Apparantly even 2+2=4 is a white racist construct.

Nonsense, you say.  If only."

Paul Craig Roberts

"Something hit me very hard once, thinking about what one little man could do. Think of the Queen Elizabeth — the whole ship goes by and then comes the rudder. And there’s a tiny thing at the edge of the rudder called a trim tab. It’s a miniature rudder. Just moving the little trim tab builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around. Takes almost no effort at all. So I said that the little individual can be a trim tab. Society thinks it’s going right by you, that it’s left you altogether. But if you’re doing dynamic things mentally, the fact is that you can just put your foot out like that and the whole big ship of state is going to go. So I said, 'Call me Trim Tab.' 

The truth is that you get the low pressure to do things, rather than getting on the other side and trying to push the bow of the ship around. And you build that low pressure by getting rid of a little nonsense, getting rid of things that don’t work and aren’t true until you start to get that trim-tab motion. It works every time. That’s the grand strategy you’re going for. So I’m positive that what you do with yourself, just the little things you do yourself, these are the things that count. To be a real trim tab, you’ve got to start with yourself, and soon you’ll feel that low pressure, and suddenly things begin to work in a beautiful way."

Buckminster Fuller

"The only thing that saves us from the bureaucracy is inefficiency. An efficient bureaucracy is the greatest threat to liberty."

Eugene McCarthy

"I don’t really understand it; the Occam’s Razor explanation is that the people everywhere have been corrupted by safetyism and the war on masculinity. We can be certain that plans for this are already laid; the entire tactical program of the modern Left is to wait until some event happens that can be mendaciously used to whip up emotion (fabricated domestic coup; George Floyd’s death) and then cynically use it to implement an existing well-organized and well-funded plan to force through a political change, relying on a massive network of allied groups outside the inner circle to immediately coordinate and amplify when the plan is launched.

Once you're able to shut people up through fear, intimidation or brainwashing, the race to the bottom begins whether of the economy or your trip bottom of the mass grave.


Don’t let them."

Bill Buppert

"In the US, politics has become a contest of who gets to impose their will on the rest of the country. When that’s the case, a country is best off dividing. It shouldn’t be held together artificially or by force, but voluntarily. Freedom of association is necessary for a civil society. People generally prefer to associate with those with whom they share a culture. Birds of a feather do, in fact, flock together.

The alternative is chaos or even civil war. I suspect what we’ve seen in the last few months is only an overture to what’s coming. The US is no longer a country that is united by language, ideas, ethnicity, or anything else. It has become a multicultural domestic empire. The essence of an empire is coercion. The divide between the components of the US is growing and solidifying.

Politicians talk about 'bringing us together.' But that’s nonsense. Politics only brings people together by force—the way a pressure cooker brings things together. It may look like it’s succeeding for a while, but when the pressure builds enough, there’s an explosion. Cultures develop organically; political coercion can’t make disparate people like each other."

Doug Casey

"Those who are capable of tyranny are capable of perjury to sustain it."

Lysander Spooner

"All revolutions are legal in the first person: our revolution. It’s only revolutions in the third person: their revolution, that are illegal."

Benjamin Franklin, 1776

"In order to regain even a modicum of freedom in this age of oligarchic rule, the power of the few has to be broken apart, and strewn to the winds. This will take a mammoth effort, but failure to accomplish this mission will result only in a society completely devoid of any meaning or worth. With a failure of this magnitude, only despair, enslavement, and death will remain, while the few continue to rule the many with an iron fist.

The assumption of power claimed by the ruling class has been relatively easy to achieve, as the pathetic masses continue to buy into the state lie called 'We the people,' as if the commoners ever controlled anything through the dishonest political system. Once the public bought into the lie that is mass voting as the source of their rights, a corrupt 'democratic' coup of deception, the game was over, and the people lost. Complicity by the people in their own serfdom has allowed the total loss of freedom, so instead of fighting for natural rights, they believe they can ask permission of their rulers to live as a free herd. Pitiful and passive behavior such as this makes the job of totalitarian rule by the oligarchs easy to accomplish."

Gary D. Barnett

"Insanity in individuals is something rare – but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule."

Friedrich Nietzsche

"After nearly six decades of their persistent and systematic efforts, the radicals have made our society ready for capture. The mass of the American people are unable to effectively defend their cultural and national inheritance, because they have been left demoralized and confused by the years of relentless propaganda and attacks. Our key institutions such as the judiciary, education, media, and government have been infiltrated by anti-American activists and weakened to the point that they do not perform their intended function."

Vasko Kohlmayer

"We are not only subject to a tyranny our forefathers would be mortified by, we are now living under an authoritarian nightmare, complete with mandatory masks, laughable 'social distancing,' closed schools, movie theaters, and cancelled events everywhere. All to stop an invisible 'virus' that has never been isolated and cannot be proven to exist. Their own numbers reveal the big lie; the largely false positive tests are for the common coronavirus, not any mysterious COVID-19. As many have pointed out, never before have healthy people had to get a test to discover they are actually seriously ill. I call it the greatest psyop of all time."

Donald Jeffries

"The masks do nothing. They achieve nothing in terms of stopping the viral spread or saving lives. This is a fact made obvious by the very infection numbers the establishment holds up as a rationale for the masks. But as noted the masks are useful in one regard:  They build false perception. If everyone else is doing it, you should be doing it too. And if the establishment elites through propaganda can force you to wear a mask every day, then this opens the door to them dictating many other aspects of your life."

Bob Livingston

"Tyrants everywhere, from the Nazis to the communists, started out supporting free speech rights. Why? Because speech is important for the realization of leftist goals of command and control. People must be propagandized, proselytized and convinced. Once leftists have gained power, as they have in most of our colleges and universities, free speech becomes a liability. It challenges their ideas and agenda and must be suppressed."

Walter Williams

"It is those who righteously claim the Progressivist mantle who are the real madmen, lacking rationality, outside reality, and strangers to the inherent laws of nature and Divine Positive Laws of God. It is they who, like demons from the bowels of Hell, seek to convince us that we are 'outside reality' and 'unprogressive.' And in this they engage in a form of transference, that is, projecting zealously onto their victims—onto the 'deplorables' and those who dissent from their template—the insecurities and sense that our thinking and actions are somehow distorted, wrong, hurtful, and not normal…that we are crazy."

Boyd D. Cathey

"What we see everywhere in Europe and in the Democrat Party is the determined intention to overwhelm the white majority with open borders.  

This criminal stupidity suits well the powerful global elite who want the end of national sovereignty and the ethnicities that formerly constituted a country erased by mass immigration.

If the Democrats get away with their theft of the 2020 election, the West and its white population are finished.  

We can begin writing the obituary."

Paul Craig Roberts

"Anyone who actually believes a man who stayed in his basement and gets more votes than Obama in an election is a true fool.

There is NO Biden transition team. The election has not been certified. There is no Office of the President-Elect. Only idiots believe this U.S. media nonsense.

Trump wins. The fraud was monumental."

Quotes of the Week

Enlightened insights taken from the past week’s reading:

"With the media going all-in on a Biden presidency Texas is squarely in the crosshairs. The neo-Marxists plan to use a Biden administration to crush anyone opposed to their twisted vision of the world. This is not a conspiracy theory. It’s taking them at their word.

Biden’s handlers and enablers have made it perfectly clear that they intend to target our right to keep and bear arms, break the back of the oil and gas industry, dramatically increase federal taxes, obliterate the sovereignty of our state, and deliberately execute punitive retribution on anyone who deviates from their ideology.

Texans have had their options narrowed down to one – #TEXIT.

TEXIT has never been a 'Plan B' for the TNM, and it can no longer be a 'Plan B' for those who cherish Texas independence. It’s time to make Texas independence happen and for Texans to rise to the call like Houston, Travis, Crockett, and Bowie."

Daniel Miller

"How hard is it to collect and count ballots? I don’t wish to disparage the people working these elections. The process is probably far more complicated than many Americans realize. But this is true of most systems, which brings me to a key point Is collecting and counting ballots more difficult than running a vast health care system that involves pricing, insurance, medication, billing, and the very lives of individuals? The answer is no.

Is collecting and counting ballots more difficult than attempting to manage the spread of an invisible virus without ruining the livelihoods, spirits, educations, and very lives of hundreds of millions of people? Again, the answer is no."

Dan Sanchez

"Just a few years back, the majority of both Democrats and Republicans defended the surveillance and invasions of Americans’ freedoms imposed under the 'War on Terror' with the facile argument that innocents should have nothing to hide. Now, suddenly, calling for transparency and accountability when it comes to counting votes is evil and unacceptable.

How many countries has the US sanctioned and 'regime-changed' citing statistical discrepancies in their election results? Yet anyone so much as suggesting that the numbers coming out of certain cities in the middle of the night aren’t pure as driven snow is vanishing into the Memory Hole.

In their Declaration of Independence, America’s founders wrote that governments derive 'their just powers from the consent of the governed.' Right now, there is a not-insignificant number of Americans on both sides of the political fence growing inclined to withdraw that consent. Controversies over this election are just one of the causes for that."

Nebojsa Malic

"Reinforced by the greens’ wilderness fetish, the result is that nearly all of California and many other regions are now vulnerable to conflagration. And people who reject masks for COVID are wearing them because of the smoke. Perhaps people will learn a lesson at last.

The belief that the government can suppress forest fires resembles the belief that politicians can outlaw COVID or control the weather. It’s King Canute all over again issuing orders to the tides.

The greatest wisdom in government came from Irving Kristol’s immortal words: 'The unintended consequences of social action are always more important, and usually less agreeable than the intended effects'."

George Gilder

"In a fair fight between herd immunity and lockdowns, herd immunity wins hands down. Herd immunity maintains freedom, a normal economy, the option to develop vaccines, and it reduces the risk that vulnerable people will get infected. Lockdowns destroy freedom, destroy the economy, cause greater numbers of ancillary deaths, produce psychological harm and prolong the process of gaining widespread immunity via the exposure of invulnerable people to the disease."

Michael Rozeff

"If history is any indicator, the weakest generations when faced with overwhelming crises will demand protection, as they always have, whether it be physical protection or financial protection. And inevitably they will turn to government and the money elites for a feeling of safety in exchange for their freedom. They don't value their freedoms because they have never enjoyed the feeling of independence anyway. The trade for comfort becomes easy for them.

Stress inoculation is a lot like strengthening your own immune system — sometimes you have to work through sickness when you are young in order to improve your immunity to sickness later in life. By the same token, you have to experience stress events when you are young so that you can better deal with crisis later in life. Otherwise, you grow up as malleable as jello and just as easy to devour. The good news is, even as adults stress inoculation can be learned. As our world grows more and more unstable and uncertain, being able to manage our own fears is becoming paramount to our continued liberty and livelihood."

Bob Livingston

"Under both parties the nation’s finances will run to seed. Deficits will mount. Debt will snowball. Growth will stagnate.

We concede, the two parties are different. They are not 'both the same.'

One party will drive the nation over a cliff doing 90. The other will drive it over the cliff doing 70."

Brian Maher

"Any country that seeks to control others is a country that seeks aggression. Any country that seeks aggression is a country that seeks war. Any country that seeks war is a country that seeks domination. Therefore, any country that seeks control, aggression, war, and domination is a country that must enslave its people in order to advance this agenda of imperialism. This is a description of the United States of America today. It has become a nation based on control, aggression, war, and domination, and only a totalitarian regime can achieve and hold empire."

Gary D. Barnett

"The anti-poverty warrior who is so good he eradicated poverty would have nothing to do which is why such wars aren't intended to be won, but endlessly expanded. This thins the ranks of those who work for a living and swells the ranks of those who vote for a living."

Bradley Miller

"'Culture' is composed of the customs, traditions, and beliefs of a group of people. It’s a way of seeing the world and interpreting reality. It determines what’s right and wrong and good and evil. Culture is what ties people together or divides them. It’s a composite of religion, politics, economics, philosophy, and language—but the composite is more important than any one component.

Culture is what ties groups and countries together. When a cultural split develops—such as the one we now have in the US—a country cannot, and, more importantly, should not stay together.

It’s poisonous to keep different cultures together in the same political unit. Politics is all about deciding who decides who gets what, how, and at whose expense. It can be fairly cordial if everybody shares the same culture. If they don’t, it’s a formula for disaster."

Doug Casey

"If some free person can figure out a better (cheaper, faster, safer, more reliable, more efficient, more comfortable, more beautiful) way to get from location X to location Y, that is good. If some free person can devise an amusement that is more fun, more relaxing, more healthful, more restorative and helps one work better, that is good. If one can freely cook tastier food and provide it to people more efficiently than their own kitchen efforts, so that they have more time and energy to devote to tasks they wish to engage in, that is good. All of this and far more happens in free markets, and it’s all to the good. Freedom and free markets are the essential condition for these good things to happen. And they are all morally right.

What is not good and what is morally wrong is the suppression of all of this free activity. It reduces trade. It reduces well-being. It ends progress. It literally kills people. This suppression is called LOCKDOWN. A lockdown is the very opposite of free markets. It destroys all that is good."

Michael Rozeff

"After 55 years of special privileges and special pleading for black Americans, where do we stand?  Integration has failed.  Black Americans, or more correctly, those who speak for them, want black-only towns, black-only college dorms, black-only dining halls, and a black national anthem.  Except for the black anthem, that’s what they had a half century ago prior to 'affirmative action.' 

How is it that when blacks demand segregation, it is not racism?"

Paul Craig Roberts

"The real triumph of the state occurs when its subjects refer to it as 'we,' like football fans talking about the home team."

Joe Sobran

"Hollywood does not care anymore about making money or even necessarily influencing your ideals. If they can't brainwash you, they are perfectly content to remove all happiness from your life by ensuring you never see anything other than what they want you to see. Think of it as the Spanish Inquisition of the Dark Ages but with a technological edge."

Brandon Smith

"As with all collectivists, whether they call themselves Marxists, communists, fascists, Democrats, Progressives, etc., they believe that the ends justify the means, and the means includes telling mountains of outlandish lies about their opponents.  Abe Lincoln was an early-day master of this dark art, by the way, writing myriad anonymous letters to the editor smearing his opponents."

Quotes of the Week

Enlightened insights taken from the past week’s reading:

"We lost our constitutional republic long ago — perhaps as far back as 1898 with the Spanish-American War. Or at the latest 1947, when our leaders decided the nation must adopt a state of permanent mobilization for war to counter the Soviet menace — ignoring the warnings of 'Old Right' types like Robert Taft, never mind Founders like Madison.

If Donald Trump wants to demonstrate he’s serious about restoring a constitutional republic, he can start by pardoning Julian Assange (and Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden).

Anyway… we are not oblivious to the hard left and its bottom-up 'long march through the institutions' strategy inspired by Antonio Gramsci.

But we daresay their time hasn’t come — regardless of who wins. Joe Biden is a centrist Democrat hack and so is Kamala Harris. The Democrats’ donor class who installed them as the party’s nominees have proven extremely adept to date at keeping the hard left in line. Look how they throttled Bernie Sanders for two straight election cycles.

This year, they mobilized the Sanders-Warren forces by forever invoking the specter of 'Orange Man Bad.' The lefties rationalized playing ball with the centrist corporate Dems by saying, 'Once they’re in, we can push them aside.'

But as a wag on Twitter said yesterday, it’s far more likely that the centrist corporate Dems will quickly pivot from 'Shut up and help us get rid of Trump'... to 'Shut up or do you want another Trump'?"

Dave Gonigam

"I have a 93-year-old mother in law, and she said to me two months ago, 'I’m not interested in being confined in my home. I am not interested in living if that’s the life…. I’m old enough to take a risk; I understand social distancing. I’m going to function, otherwise there’s no reason to live.' This sort of bizarre, maybe well-intentioned but misguided idea that we are going to eliminate all risk from life, we are going to stop people from taking any risk that they are well aware of, we’re going to close down businesses, we’re going to stop schools — these are inappropriate and destructive policies.

There are between 30,000 and 90,000 people a year that die — that are high-risk elderly — in the United States every flu season. We don’t shut down schools in response to that."

Dr. Scott Atlas

"Our educational system has become the seedbed—the Typhoid Mary, if you will—for the frenzied 'cancel culture' we see around us and for the concerted and increasingly fanatical attempt to destroy and erase the two millennia of Western Christian civilization.

Far too many Republicans and so-called 'conservatives' believe that—somehow—they can coexist or even collaborate with this lunacy. They cannot. It will devour them, just as it is devouring what remains of our heritage.

There are literally hundreds of publicized examples of this educational madness, and they are just the ones that earn particular notice. But for every one news account there are dozens, even hundreds which don’t make it into the press. For every example of progressivist 'woke' lunacy there are numerous others in classrooms across the nation, or proclaimed by professorial or teachers’ organizations."

Boyd D. Cathey

"Liberty, then, is the sovereignty of the individual, and never shall man know liberty until each and every individual is acknowledged to be the only legitimate sovereign of his or her person, time, and property, each living and acting at his own cost."

Josiah Warren

"Let’s see now, if white Americans are white supremacist racists, why did they let their white country fill up with people of color and reduce the white percentage of the population from close to 100% to 60% and falling?   

Would white racists vote in an immigration law that essentially keeps white people out and fills the country up with black people?

Would white supremacists impose affirmative action against white people in order to elevate blacks?

Would white supremacist racists elect a black president?"

Paul Craig Roberts

"Sovereignty is not given, it is taken."

Mustafa Kemal Ataturk

"THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated…"

Thomas Paine

"The real problem is that when you have a cultural split—such as developed in the US—a country cannot, and more importantly, should not stay together. 

At this point, politics has become a contest of who gets to impose their will on the rest of the country. When that’s the case, a country is best off dividing. People should have freedom of association, generally with those whom they share culture, traditions, and general worldviews.

The US is no longer a country that is united by culture and language, ideas, or anything else. It’s become a multicultural domestic empire. It’s too large to be governable. The central government is totally bankrupt. It should break up peaceably before the situation gets completely out of control."

Doug Casey

"It's hard not to come to the conclusion that since we live in two different realities, it's time for us to live in two separate societies.

One can live actual human lives -- with all the risks and joys that entails -- and the other can live as moral scolds in hermetically sealed underground bunkers, from which they can broadcast their outrage at the rest of us over Zoom."

Tom Woods

"This ruination of the individual and the idea of self was no accidental occurrence, but stands in stark contrast to what the confused masses falsely believe today. Freedom is not based on equality, and in fact cannot exist in such a society. Those intent on rule understand the weaknesses of the herd, and cater to the fears that are evident amongst them. They use propaganda to breed envy, and use control techniques to advance a loyalty to the state. This helps to create the mob that will voluntarily work as one to destroy all that they fear. This is apparent in the idea of 'we the people,' it is apparent in the dishonest idiocy called voting, it is apparent in mandatory state indoctrination centers called schools, it is apparent in the purposely created division at every turn, and it is apparent in the efforts of the herd to fight over which ruler will lord supreme over them.

Only the individual can face this monster called collectivism. Only the individual can defeat the indifference consuming the crowd. Those that reject authority, that reject the state, and that resist all conformity, can be the light for others to follow so that they can escape the darkness that has consumed the western world. These few are the real heroes."

Gary D. Barnett

"We are reduced to the alternative of choosing an unconditional submission to the tyranny of irritated ministers or resistance by force. The latter is our choice. We have counted the cost of this contest, and find nothing so dreadful as voluntary slavery. Honour, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them, if we basely entail hereditary bondage upon them."

John Dickinson’s rewrite of the “Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking up Arms” in 1775, by Thomas Jefferson

"A vast number of young people are finding themselves completely unprepared for adult life and they blame boomers indirectly for their failings. Contrary to popular belief, boomers had nothing whatsoever to do with the decline of the U.S. economy; if you want to find the culprits behind you financial pain, I suggest learning about the history of the Federal Reserve and how that institution has systematically destroyed our currency's buying power and our economy over time.

Where boomers are culpable is in their terrible parenting model. They raised a generation of weaklings and rarely questioned the establishment and media propaganda that told them that helicopter parenting was the best way to raise their children. While perhaps done out of love, boomers spoiled their own kids so completely and shielded them from all acute stress that as young adults they now have no capacity to succeed in a world where survival instincts might be required."

Bob Livingston

"All tyrannies rule through fraud and force, but once the fraud is exposed they must rely exclusively on force."

George Orwell

"No one can succeed at anything without a free, open, safe, voluntary society where hundreds of millions of people of every kind are willing to interact voluntarily to make it all happen.

We don’t need the government and its crony corporatists controlling us. Corporations are the creation of the political classes in which business enterprises are granted special state-enforced advantages, privileges and protections in exchange for corporatist cronies funneling money into the politician’s pockets in the form of campaign funds, political action donations, speaking fees and just plain old under-the-table bribery.

Corporatist money is traded for political power and political power is traded for corporatist money. This unholy alliance must be condemned and eliminated.

What we do need is a free market unencumbered by politicians and beyond the control of the biggest business concerns that would succeed only if they can out-perform their competitors to deliver goods and services that people actually want and need at a price they could actually afford.

This kind of society may be called a voluntary laissez-faire open marketplace for all forms of human interaction under the non-aggression principle against coercion, intimidation and fraud."

Garry Reed

"Why did we previously insist on terms like human rights and freedoms? Because we believed they are inalienable; that is, that they cannot be taken away regardless of the excuse. We baked these ideas into our laws, constitutions, institutions, and into our civic codes found in pledges, songs, and traditions. The social contract we practice with regard to the threat of infectious diseases is that we manage them intelligently while never trampling on the dignity of the human person. The payoff is that our immune systems get stronger, enabling all of us to enjoy longer and healthier lives – not just some of us, not just the legally privileged, not just those with access to platforms to speak but rather every single member of the human community. 

We made that deal many centuries ago. We’ve practiced it well for hundreds of years, which is why we’ve never before experienced draconian and near-universal lockdowns of essential social functioning. 

This year we broke the deal. We shattered and smashed the social contract."

Jeffrey Tucker

"It can be no surprise that collectivists care not for the harm that they do. That is their nature. Reality is their enemy. Humanity is their enemy. Individuals are their enemy. Truth is not the goal. Clearer thinking or better comprehension of reality is not the goal. Their ideas and those who ascribe to them are their allies. Those are replayed in broken-record fashion with minor cosmetic changes. If you need any more proof of this, merely look at the effects of this thinking writ large across the Century of the Great State. Collectivists have proven what will come when society is left in their hands. It is the duty of individuals to prevent oneself from being so oppressible by the collectivists."
