Confederation, not Federation: Patrick Henry Against the Federal Constitution.

I wonder whether Brooke Allen considered Mr. Henry a "Founding Father?" Could the first chapter of our Federal history be titled "Jacobin Gentry betray a Christian Nation?"

The Destruction of Language

The term racism belongs to a class of expressions whose purpose is to be a conduit for social hegemony, rather than to convey meaning. Indeed, as the language is larded with similar totalitarian patois and circumlocutions for verboten ideas, it becomes increasingly difficult to express an unapproved thought, or, what's more, to think in ways that do not lead to self-contradiction. It is, as Orwell wrote, the objective of linguistic manipulation to make unauthorized thought impossible, since there are no terms in which to express it.

Where is Ithavoll?

In the Völuspá of the Poetic Edda, Ithavoll is the mythological location of the plain where a remnant of the gods meet following the events of Ragnarök, to begin again the work of city building, the first being Gimli -said to be the most beautiful place in the world:

Feminism and R/K Selection

Nature abhors a reproductive vacuum. Where one exists, much that appears to be mere politics arises to fill it. But it may be that instinct (and its perversion) are at work in thought. Perhaps underneath all ideology are necessities only dimly glimpsed. Such may be the case with immigration. But here the law of unintended consequences cannot be suspended as easily as border enforcement. The law of unintended consequences states that the result of any action (thus any public policy) to achieve a given end will be consequences that are unintended. This is something to do with incomplete information, a human absolute. An unintended consequence of feminism is that it's Newtonian--its appearance generates an equal and opposite reaction.  Feminism is in essence anti-reproductive, and nature has a way of destroying what opposes her. Deflation is one of her weapons. If you end or significantly pause immigration, deflation will--eventually--fix the psycho-social pathogen of feminism. It is …
