Bill Whittle: “America’s team lost a game, and the country cheered”

29 July 2021

Perhaps I’m wrong in feeling the way I do. Ordinarily I would feel bad for not supporting my country’s Olympic team, but not this year. Since they all seem to outright hate America, and Americans like me, I’m enjoying every single failure. The women’s soccer team, the men’s basketball team, the gymnastics team failing to live up to their hype. I am very much enjoying seeing these obnoxious woke American athletes humiliate themselves. So go ahead and judge me for that.

I like what Bill Whittle has to say here.

Malcolm Muggeridge: “God perceived by the heart, not by reason”

29 July 2021

.

“People think of faith as being something that you don’t really believe, a device in helping you believe simply it. Of course that is quite wrong. As Pascal says, faith is a gift of God. It is different from the proof of it. It is the kind of faith God himself places in the heart, of which the proof is often the instrument…
He says of it, too, that it is the heart which is aware of God, and not reason. That is what faith is: God perceived by the heart, not by reason.”

Francis Canavan: “the fear of not looking sufficiently progressive”

29 July 2021

.

“The word “progressive,” for example. “It will never be known,” said Charles Peguy, ”what acts of cowardice have been motivated by the fear of not looking sufficiently progressive.” Yet the word is meaningless until we add meaning to it. It suggests movement in the right direction, but we have no idea what direction that is until we learn what goal we are progressing towards and why we should move toward it. Progressives seldom say; they just assume that everyone knows.”
Fr. Francis Canavan

Vladimir Bukovsky: “The tragedy was that he existed inside every one of us”

28 July 2021

.

“Why should I hate them? If anyone was to be hated it was the people at the top, scrapping over the plum jobs and forgetting about everything else in the world . . .

“But even these I could not hate. I could despise them, and the entire society they had created, just as I despised their ideology and their self-justification – the psychology of slave and tyrant at the same time.

“I despised Soviet man – not the one depicted on the posters in Soviet literature, but the one who existed in reality, who had neither honor nor pride, nor a sense of personal responsibility, who was capable of tackling a bear alone with a pitchfork but who shrank away and broke into a cold sweat at the sight of a policeman, who would betray and sell his own father to avoid the boss thumping his fist on the desk at him.

“The tragedy was that he existed inside every one of us, and until we could overcome this Soviet man within, nothing in our life would change.”

Malcolm Muggeridge: “Thus did Western Man decide to abolish himself”

27 July 2021

.

“So the final conclusion would surely be that whereas other civilizations have been brought down by attacks of barbarians from without, ours had the unique distinction of training its own destroyers at its own educational institutions, and then providing them with facilities for propagating their destructive ideology far and wide, all at the public expense. Thus did Western Man decide to abolish himself, creating his own boredom out of his own affluence, his own vulnerability out of his own strength, his own impotence out of his own erotomania, himself blowing the trumpet that brought the walls of his own city tumbling down, and having convinced himself that he was too numerous, labored with pill and scalpel and syringe to make himself fewer. Until at last, having educated himself into imbecility, and polluted and drugged himself into stupefaction, he keeled over–a weary, battered old brontosaurus–and became extinct.”

“America’s corrupt ruling class”

26 July 2021

.

“Indeed, the rulers of the corrupt Globalist American Empire (GAE) have consolidated power to such a degree that they have little need left for even the pretense that the United States is a free country. That America’s corrupt ruling class are not even bothering to pretend like America is a free society anymore not only has dramatic consequences domestically, it has equally important implications globally. Accordingly, foreign governments have taken notice of the American ruling class’ dramatic arrogation of power in the wake of the events of January 6th.”

Solzhenitsyn: “Ideology”

26 July 2021

.

To do evil a human being must first of all believe that what he’s doing is good… Ideology – that is what gives devildoing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory which helps to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and others’ eyes, so that he won’t hear reproaches and curses but will receive praise and honors.

Solzhenitsyn: “we have forgotten God”

25 July 2021

.

“We hear a constant clamor for rights, rights, always rights, but so very little about responsibility. And we have forgotten God. The need now is for selflessness, for a spirit of sacrifice, for a willingness to put aside personal gains for the salvation of the whole Western world.”

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
