Universities and Millennials—Voltaire's Antipodes

"Monsieur l'abbé, I detest what you write, but I would give my life to make it possible for you to continue to write."

—Voltaire

It's a hideous historical irony that sizeable pockets of "millennials" are, along with Muslims and the media, the locus of totalitarianism in the modern world. University students in particular, even more than their state-worshipping tutors, are at the forefront of the war on free speech.


Why Can't OrgOists and Republican Candidates Say These Things?

Here's a member of Generation Airhead saying non-airhead things—albeit, tragically, with a typical airhead's quack. This video has gone viral—another sign (as is Trump) that there's a thirst "out there" for words that are true and fearless: words that reflect a functioning moral compass, unfiltered by weasel-worded PC marketers, uncorrupted by the pathological consciencelessness of the dribbling, defecating monsters of the Occupy movement.

Bernie Sanders, Socialism, and the GOP
By Edward Hudgins

July 17, 2015 -- It’s more than ironic that as socialist economies, led by Greece, collapse, Democrats in America are infatuated by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, the presidential candidate who caucuses with the Democrats but is an avowed socialist. The starry eyes for this supreme statist reflect an ignorance about our own collapsing regime to say nothing of moral failings that Republicans—and everyone else—should take seriously.

The Islamotrash responsible for shooting and killing four Marines during two attacks at gun-free military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee, today, has been identified as Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez.

The Islamotrash-enabler responsible for the gunman is Barack Hussein Obama.

Capitalist Planning and Socialist Chaos

George Reisman's picture
Submitted by George Reisman on Sun, 2015-06-21 22:45

This essay, “Capitalist Planning and Socialist Chaos,” shows that capitalism has all-pervasive but unrecognized economic planning. The separate, individual plans of all of its hundreds of millions, indeed, billions of individual participants, are harmonized, coordinated, and integrated by the price system and profit motive. Socialism, in contrast, is a chaotic “anarchy of production,” made that way by the stupendously ignorant and arrogant attempt to monopolize economic planning by a handful of government officials who prohibit economic planning by everyone else.

Bosch Fawstin, who graced the pages of SOLO during the embryonic stages of his campaign against Islamotrash, was the winner of the Draw Mohammed Competition in Garland, Texas, organised by the beyond-courageous Pamela Geller, where ISIS scum tried to shoot attendees but got themselves shot instead. A most edifying outcome. Pamela and Bosch are now the object of death threats from the scum.

"In the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.

"The emotion involved in art is not an emotion in the ordinary meaning of the term. It is experienced more as a 'sense' or a 'feel,' but it has two characteristics pertaining to emotions: it is automatically immediate and it has an intense, profoundly personal (yet undefined) value-meaning to the individual experiencing it.

Unity through Diversity Equals Cultural Death
By Olivia Pierson

Cultural pluralism is as old as the hills – or at least as old as the Babylonian Empire on whose riverbank shores even the captive Jews were tolerated to sit and weep. Multiculturalism, on the other hand, is a 20th Century bastardization of tolerance, which the United Nations invented to socially engineer Western democracies to cope with overwhelming immigration, mostly from Third World slave-pens.

Intro to 'Total Passion'

Kyrel Zantonavitch's new review on Amazon of my book, 'Total Passion for the Total Height,' prompted me to start re-reading the thing myself. As I made my way through the Introduction I became quite exercised by the trenchant accuracy of my own observations, and motivated to lift myself from the pessimistic funk induced by the horrors of which I write. It occurred to me that I'd never published that Introduction here. Here it is (oh, and of course, buy the book if you want more!):

December 26, 2009

When in the course of human affairs it becomes necessary for citizens to break the political chains that hitherto have bound them, and to reclaim the individual sovereignty which is their birthright, it is opportune and appropriate for them to declare the causes which have impelled them to self-liberation. We, the freedom-loving citizens of the United States of America, choose to do so at this historic moment.
