Systems and sructures: the Social Warrior Litmus test

Graham Hill's picture

The BLM protest last Sunday in Wellington had a highly intelligent and formidable speaker. She laid into the system and the structures of power. When you hear those words one knows that the dead hand of a wearisome ideology of critical theory, neo-Marxism. The dialectical theory of Hegel, and the unfortunate inheritance from Plato, lives on in the simplistic mechanical calculus which reduces life to the trite oppressor/oppressed calculus which concludes with its predicted premise.


Cancel Woke-Fascism: Watch 'Gone with the Wind' Today!

The attempt by sub-human Taleban Woke-Fascists to rewrite history and destroy Western Civilisation and its distinctive ramparts, reason and freedom, has already backfired. Their latest target: the gorgeous classic Gone with the Wind. I believe these particular Woke-Taleban fascists, HBO, will put the movie back up eventually, but with an insufferably sanctimonious, prissy sermon about "racism," of which they, as it happens, are the worst real practitioners in this equation. Reassuringly, actual humans have got in first:

The Tragic Worldview Versus the Therapeutic

When it comes to democracy, both ancient and modern, there are forces which compete at its heart serving as a moral tension which give the whole system a certain vigour, until it unravels either through mob-tyranny or outright dictatorship.

In ancient Athens, arguments were had over equality versus freedom, an old left/right divide between those who believed that people were not equal and then those who believed that they could be made equal if human nature could just be overridden a little – or a lot.

The progressive view still insists today that equality is more important than freedom, therefore welcomes, or at least tolerates, state intrusion into the lives and livelihoods of citizens to see wealth redistributed “more equally.”

Comrades, the time has come to deal with the insidious evil in our society.

I am of course referring to "institutionalized sexism"

There is a 'minority' in America who comprise 49.6% of the population, yet comprise 94% of those shot by police.

The only possible explanation for this is sexism; institutionalized sexism. A pernicious evil which has gone on for too long.

The way to solve this once and for all is not to stop committing crimes, oh no, it is to burn down the bakery and drycleaners on Main Street.

That'll show those sexists we are on to them - so there! (you racist!)

In the Leighton Smith Podcast this week, released on Wednesday June 3rd, Leighton interviewed George Friedman of Geopolitical Futures and the subject of President Trump came up.

Friedman, who is a conservative, has often supported the president but this time he offered some fairly vague criticisms of him along the lines of: “He just has to make everything about him.” “I want him to lead.” “He’s supposed to be everybody’s president.” “He condemned the demonstrators but hasn’t said a word about…” [sentence incomplete]. “This requires sensitivity, Trump has many virtues, understanding the complexity of this is not one of them.”

“Oh my God. Wow. We are in trouble. He was hiding in a bunker and embarrassed that people know that. So what does he have to do? He has to stick police on peaceful protesters so he can make a big show of being the little big man walking to a closed down church.”

All false.

Evidently Anderson took to the streets to release her menses:

Oh wait. That's Obleftivist Yawon Bwook, CNN shill, with a bwown wig. My mistake. Evil

I'm delighted to see the thoroughly well-deserved tribute to Lady Olivia below. I'm sure she won't mind if I report that her excellent comments to Bro Hubbard the Woke seem to stem from a private conversation she and I had in which she chided me for using the term "evil" too often. Olivia had fallen for the tired old line that the term loses its efficacy with over-use. My rejoinder was that "evil" should be used as often as applicable; that not to use it when applicable is moral abdication; and that, in demonstrable fact, those who practise this moral abdication, far from reserving their use of the term for special occasions, never use it at all!

New Zealand Joins the Third World

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Sun, 2020-05-24 06:21

When Parliament rushed through the Wuhan Virus Public Health Response Bill last week, the redoubtable Cameron Slater observed that New Zealand had thereby formally become a police state. The following atrocities from the Act make clear that this claim was not hyperbole. Allow time for the enormity of these abominations to sink in. Note the repeated use of the term "without limitation" in the enumeration of the totalitarian powers granted here. Ask yourself how long it will be before unWoke opinions, especially on the subject of the Wuhan virus, are deemed by Woke "enforcement officers," unelected and unaccountable, to promote the spread thereof or hinder efforts to prevent the spread thereof; how long before Woke constables raid the houses of the offending unWoke opiners without a warrant—as they are now empowered to do—and haul them off to indefinite solitary confinement in some specified Gulag—as they are now empowered to do? There are no words to express the treasonous viciousness of this legislation; none to capture the evil of the regime that passed it. Tragically, if the words did exist, very few would use them; part of the success of the Fascist Woke is that they have created a world in which evil is deemed merely "concerning," "troubling," "disappointing" or "problematic."

We are no longer part of the Free World; we are indeed a police state, a dictatorship and a banana republic, tyrannised by a grotesque, fry-quacking, upward-inflecting, infantile/moronnial, Narcissistic gargoyle whose vapidness is matched only by her evil and whose power is now "without limitation." That is not "concerning"; it is cataclysmic:

Joe Biden is clearly not well.

Republican commentators everywhere are perhaps too decent to come out and state the obvious; that it looks as though Joe has dementia. President Trump is putting the case too kindly when he refers to the former Vice President as “Sleepy Joe.”

Joe’s interviews are almost too painful to behold – he stammers and squints into camera, then when he does get on a roll he can’t articulate a coherent sentence and often makes remarks that just don’t make any sense. He literally and frequently speaks nonsense that is beyond the pale of the normal nonsense Dems like to trot out, it’s gibberish consistent with cognitive degeneration.

The Flynn caper has exposed one of the fundamental differences between left and right.

On the left you find a long trail of filth - rapists, pederasts, fraudsters, wife beaters, even murderers - so that at regular intervals the left wing establishment and media are having to rally around to protect the latest degenerate who got caught.

Their usual line in the media, history books, and other discourse is (as Richard Nixon famously pointed out during his interviews with David Frost) is "oh ha ha ha it's just fun and games; nothing to see here". Compare that attitude towards Edward Kennedy murdering a woman, Clinton's rape victims, or Hunter Biden's drug addled bribe taking, with Justice Kavanaugh or Donald Trump's locker room talk.

This case seeks to protect and vindicate fundamental liberties that citizens of the United States enjoy free from government interference. These liberties are not conferred or granted by government to then be rescinded at the will and whims of government officials. These God-given liberties are possessed by the people, and they are guaranteed against government interference by the United States Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land. First among these liberties is the right to peacefully protest government officials through the freedom of speech and the right to peaceably assemble guaranteed by the First Amendment. 2.The right to freedom of speech is not a right to catharsis. It is a right to meaningfully protest and assemble in public in order to change public policy. The most effective way to exercise this right is to organize and participate in a large public protest.

Remember Folks, Altruism Means Sacrifice

The collectivist mindset, whether it be communist, socialist or fascist, has an organising principle and that is self-sacrifice. The individual must sacrifice personal needs and desires for the greater good of the group, the community or the state.

This is demanded by force according to the ethics of altruism.

I’ve written before that altruism doesn’t mean voluntarily doing nice things for others, as we all like to do from time to time. Altruism means dutifully self-sacrificing to others as a moral good.

The term “altruism” was coined in the 19th Century by Auguste Comte, the French founder of the philosophical theory known as positivism. To hold society together, Comte believed that people had to live for the sake of others by renouncing their own self-interest. Generosity and good-will had nothing to do with it.

The US case of Lt General Flynn, the former Trump white House NSA advisor, has been interesting to follow. He was caught up in the House Democrat’s Russian collusion affair and charged with perjury. Is he an American Dreyfus?

Prima facie, the FBI’s abuses of process, the rule of law and over bearing unconscionable duress (which one may think of as akin to black mail) by lawyers and law enforcement officers make this case an appalling example of the politicisation of law. At the human level it demonstrates a reckless disregard for Lt General Flynn who has lost his career, house and savings.

Huntington Beach intends to sue the state after Gov. Gavin Newsom announced that he would be closing all Orange County beaches.

The Huntington Beach City Council voted 5-2 to file a lawsuit against the State of California, with Council members Barbara Delgleize and Kim Carr opposing the move.

While Newport Beach did not take any action Thursday night, Councilman Kevin Muldoon suggested that the city follow Huntington Beach and sue the state, claiming that Orange County had “flattened the curve.”

Newport Beach was the locale for SOLOC 4 in 2006. I hope it stands as a beacon of liberty in these dire times.

In an article which one of my readers recently drew to my attention, Green MP Golriz Ghahraman wrote an essay titled Freedom of Speech and Its Limits where she makes the case for why more hate speech laws should be introduced in New Zealand. https://www.pantograph-punch.c...

Because Ms. Ghahraman lays out the common arguments in favour of this cause as clearly as her abilities allow, it’s worth a read to see the one-track groove of thought those who advance this cause are stuck in. The obsession with minority groups is paramount: gender, sexual, ethnic, racial and religious (except for Christian). They view society through groupthink lenses to pass themselves off as the bold “defenders of minorities” in the eyes of other groupthinkers, which reminds me of a notable quote by philosopher/novelist Ayn Rand:

The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.

One can safely assume, however, that the vaccination question, with all its risks, is only one part of the whole "new normal". Once the idea of the health passport is in place, more and more controls of this kind will be easily implemented.
