THE DEATH MORALITY OF THE LEFT

Leftists: self abnegating and selfish at the same time.
One of the chief characteristics of modernity is a departure from traditional morality, but merely deviating from such morality does not mean the abnegation of that morality, which is founded on eternal truths. Rather it is a form of negative affirmation of that morality. Therefore we should not be surprised that such deviation creates a strong sense of moral inferiority among those who choose that path, and thus impels a desperate need to offset it and reset the moral balance.

This simple psychological equation can be used to explain much of what we see in Leftism and why the extreme Left tends to attract the viler kinds of human being.

Global distribution of Inbreeding


An interesting map and the distribution and concentration seem highly plausible, although I am not sure what the criteria of inbreeding, relative to the percentages given, is. I assume it means marrying within a first or second cousin. It is also clear that some countries showing up as white on the map are doing so simply because there is no information. Most of South East Asia and sub-Saharan Africa fall into this category. I assume inbreeding in those areas is rather high.

THE BLACK BASELINE

Europe, here we come!
Sub-Saharan Africans are the fastest-growing demographic on the planet. With a fertility rate over three times as high as European women (5.2 children per woman to 1.6) that shows few signs of decreasing, the population of Sub-Saharan Africa is projected to more than double, rising from 1.1 billion to 2.4 billion by mid-century. With so many Africans coming into the world, it is vital to understand them better, but already much of the material produced on Africa and Africans is tainted with Cultural Marxism, so, to get an accurate picture, it is vital to refer to sources that predate political correctness. Here is passage is from a book published in 1930:

Odessa or Dishonour

Death in Odessa: the burning Trade Unions House.
One reason why I supported the Ukrainian uprising earlier this year was because, despite rumours of various kinds of "special operations" and skulduggery (on both sides), my perception was and still is that a great many of the people involved in the Maidan, including many of the members of Right Sector who spearheaded the action, were acting sincerely and with honour.

Honour includes a variety of qualities, but the essence of it is to behave in such a way that those not involved in your struggle will feel admiration and thus sympathy.

For example, the courage, steadfastness, and resolve shown by the Maidan demonstrators in the face of heavily armed police and attempts at state repression could be cited as honourable. But honour also includes other virtues, such as respecting innocent lives, showing magnanimity, and an awareness of things beyond your immediate selfish interests.

Yasukuni Jinja – The Misunderstood Shrine to Japan's War Dead

"I'm a Belieber" – Justin Bieber pays his respects.
April is a big month in the calendar of Yasukuni, the shrine in downtown Tokyo dedicated to the souls of all those who have died in the service of the Japanese Emperors since the Meiji Revolution. It is therefore also a big month for making a fuss about the enshrinement of a group of men, who since the post-War trials carried out by the US occupation forces, have been called "war criminals."

Aside from the quaint notions that war should be some kind of sport played by gentlemen and that "war criminals" can only come from the losing side, Yasukuni Jinja never fails to create major misunderstandings between Japan and the West, misunderstandings that are quickly latched onto by interested parties in North East Asia who probably know a lot better.

Vladimir Putin & the Sane Man Theory


The events in the Eastern Ukraine in the last few days have raised many questions. What is going on and why have Russian nationalists with covert backing from Moscow seized public buildings in various cities and erected barricades? Is Putin aiming to annex the Eastern half of the Ukraine?

One century after the madness of World War One, are we going to see another series of slippery escalations taking us in directions that few if any of us want to go in?

These questions are hard to answer at the moment, but there are some points that we can use to gauge how things are likely to work out.
