Think of the glory of capitalism, free enterprise, free trade, and freedom generally. Think of the concomitant marvelousness of economic, social, and personal liberty.

The Islamic Prime Minister

https://edwardcline.blogspot.c...

I sent this query to Theresa May at 10 Downing Street, London, a few days ago:

Is Theresa May a closet Muslim? Is she okay with female genital mutilation? Honor killings or murders? The rapes of white British women and girls? Is she okay with Hamas? Hezbollah? Censorship? With not giving Islam the raspberries? Not calling Islam totalitarian and evil? Would she have recommended to Hitler that members of The White Rose be executed? Or that Tommy Robinson be murdered by Muslim prisoners?

It's remarkable to think how much damage Leonard Peikoff, Harry Binswanger, Peter Schwartz, and the like have done to the world in general, and myself in particular.

Perfidious Albion

https://edwardcline.blogspot.c...

To read the headlines, you would think that Britain was still fighting for her life: defending its shores from German U-boats, launching the RAF to repel the Luftwaffe, and London subjected to regular bombings by V-1, V-2 rockets and flocks of Messerschmitts and Dorniers. As far back as WWI, British newspapers were given what were called “D Notices” by the War Ministry about what news about the war effort could not be published to prevent the enemy from gleaning information about Britain’s plans and capabilities.

If ever there were a people who could be described as truly pathetic, it is the Palestinian people.

From go to utter woe, these people have developed no cause, no sense, no decent reason for living – and the victimhood they cling to should make any person with an iota of self-esteem wince.

Gangs of New York: The Book and the Movie

Submitted by Grant Jones on Wed, 2018-05-23 00:12

Herbert Asbury published his popular history The Gangs of New York: An Informal History of the Underworld in 1928. It is one of four books that Asbury wrote on the criminal elements in different American cities. The other three deal with gangs in Chicago, New Orleans and San Francisco.The book is inaccurate in places. However, it is based on a substantial amount of primary documents from both periodicals and memoirs.

New Zealand's premier Big Band were in outrageously good form in Wellington on Friday and Saturday nights. The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra's hallmark precision and passion, their flagrant virtuosity and sinful zest, were on such shameless display that one feared the arrival of some branch of the Fun Police.

NZ Racism & Unearned Guilt

I’ve lived in this country for 40-odd years, mostly in areas that would be called white middle-class suburbs. I went to a very middle-class girls’ high school and have held down jobs in a wide variety of fields of employment. I have a circle of friends from many different backgrounds, but never once have I met someone who could truly be called a flat-out racist, i.e, someone who really hates people of a different ethnicity.

The Filth Go After Kenneth Clark and Civilisation

Grant Jones's picture
Submitted by Grant Jones on Sat, 2018-05-05 00:57

Kenneth Clark (1903-1983) was an eminent, British art historian and museum curator. His most well-known work is the landmark documentary series Civilisation that was aired on the BBC in 1969. He sub-titled the documentary - and the companion book that followed - as "A Personal View." His concentration is on the visual arts that was his forte. He also emphasizes the deep connection between art and religion during most the time-frame covered in the book and documentary.
