Publisher’s Note: Close the schools, every one of them. There is an opportunity here as some of the laziest people in human history, teachers in K-PhD, demand and clamor to retain their salary and benefits which have always been far more generous than they should thanks to unions and tenure for teachers and professors respectively. And these shiftless people also bear most of the responsibility for the intellectual wasteland that is the brainpower of three generations. Taking seriously the notion that the War to Save Josef Stalin made the world safe for communism, the entire American education took that on as a mission statement.
And here we are.
This about sums it up. Rod Serling was a seer.
Is the education establishment primarily responsible for the disaster that is 2020 for free range humanity? No, root cause has many parents. Critical thinking skills and the wherewithal to question authority has taken a long sleep in today’s Amerika.
Defund universities and the police, that’s a good start. Everything government funds is poisonous and turns whatever it touches to shit.
Government is the maximalist application of moral injury on a wholesale scale.
You can thank half a century of climate alarmism based on nonsense, non-science, communist fever-dreams and the elevation of “experts” as the gateway drug to the deluded opium den delusions of the Peking Pox and its weaponization to game political power.
Then the floodgates open as yet another victim of government policing assumes room temperature and the usual suspects in the government supremacist industry stoke the fires and spin the tires to behave destructively and predictably in the urban hives run by the CPUSA for decades.
All of this frisson and fire may magically evaporate if Comrade Joe and his bloated VP-thing manage to commit enough fraud to stuff the ballots for the Party that gave us the KKK, segregation, lunch tables, lynching, Jim Crow, the Great Society and the entry into every major conflict in the twentieth century until 1980.
The Democrats as a party were founded to protect chattel slavery. Nothing has changed, the plantation boundaries and legal niceties have changed.
In the end, left and right are an illusion as I have tirelessly opined but the Left [if I suspend my belief in self-assignation], they are the real plantation owners and leave right wing aspiration to owning human cattle in the dust. Just think of all the former inmates from totalitarian countries and their children that have come to America to be free and now they see the nightmare begin anew. I can only imagine the horror.
What tyrannical nonsense and that is where we live today. And keep in mind that the Karens of both sexes who call you out for not wearing a mask is not due to health concerns, but you don’t share their imperial conditioning. Nor do they have any faith their mask will protect them. Curiouser and curiouser. Prove me wrong.
The Peking Pox peaked in April according to even the Fedgod.
Remember, if you oppose human slavery, communism and/or infanticide, you are now an enemy of the people. Burn that into your brain.
Per weapons, remember that every FFL dealer is a non-funded BATFE field office and their business depends on their Vichy collaboration with the agency that has brought you so much death and destruction. The F-Troop has so many informants now, they have Federal Form 3252.2.
…and get OFF social media. Social media, like the urinalists in the media, is a free range asylum.
In better news, have you listened to Pat Metheny’s latest album, “From This Place”? If not, you should.
While I am loathe to ban comments, any anti-semitism will be shunted to the trash. There are many places on the ‘net where you can spew and vent with abandon frothing with like-minded nitwits. Not here.

“We would have been very (loath) to hurt the feelings of our fellow Jews, by going to a land that would exterminate them if it could.”
— Sammy Luftspring and Norman “Babe” Yack (Canadian-Jewish boxers), July 6, 1936
“But the one great shocking occasion, when tens or hundreds or thousands will join with you, never comes. That’s the difficulty. If the last and worst act of the whole regime had come immediately after the first and smallest, thousands, yes, millions would have been sufficiently shocked—if, let us say, the gassing of the Jews in ’43 had come immediately after the ‘German Firm’ stickers on the windows of non-Jewish shops in ’33. But of course this isn’t the way it happens. In between come all the hundreds of little steps, some of them imperceptible, each of them preparing you not to be shocked by the next. Step C is not so much worse than Step B, and, if you did not make a stand at Step B, why should you at Step C? And so on to Step D.
And one day, too late, your principles, if you were ever sensible of them, all rush in upon you. The burden of self-deception has grown too heavy, and some minor incident, in my case my little boy, hardly more than a baby, saying ‘Jewish swine,’ collapses it all at once, and you see that everything, everything, has changed and changed completely under your nose. The world you live in—your nation, your people—is not the world you were born in at all. The forms are all there, all untouched, all reassuring, the houses, the shops, the jobs, the mealtimes, the visits, the concerts, the cinema, the holidays. But the spirit, which you never noticed because you made the lifelong mistake of identifying it with the forms, is changed. Now you live in a world of hate and fear, and the people who hate and fear do not even know it themselves; when everyone is transformed, no one is transformed. Now you live in a system which rules without responsibility even to God. The system itself could not have intended this in the beginning, but in order to sustain itself it was compelled to go all the way.”
― Milton Sanford Mayer, They Thought They Were Free: The Germans 1933-45
“Totalitarian politics—far from being simply antisemitic or racist or imperialist or communist—use and abuse their own ideological and political elements until the basis of factual reality, from which the ideologies originally derived their strength and their propaganda value—the reality of class struggle, for instance, or the interest conflicts between Jews and their neighbors—have all but disappeared.”
“As far as the Jews were concerned, the transformation of the “crime” of Judaism into the fashionable “vice” of Jewishness was dangerous in the extreme. Jews had been able to escape from Judaism into conversion; from Jewishness there was no escape. A crime, moreover, is met with punishment; a vice can only be exterminated.”
“A fundamental difference between modern dictatorships and all other tyrannies of the past is that terror is no longer used as a means to exterminate and frighten opponents, but as an instrument to rule masses of people who are perfectly obedient. Terror as we know it today strikes without any preliminary provocation, its victims are innocent even from the point of view of the persecutor. This was the case in Nazi Germany when full terror was directed against Jews, i.e., against people with certain common characteristics which were independent of their specific behavior. In Soviet Russia the situation is more confused, but the facts, unfortunately, are only too obvious. On the one hand, the Bolshevik system, unlike the Nazis, never admitted theoretically that it could practice terror against innocent people, and though in view of certain practices this may look like hypocrisy, it makes quite a difference. Russian practice, on the other hand, is even more “advanced” than the German in one respect: arbitrariness of terror is not even limited by racial differentiation, while the old class categories have long since been discarded, so that anybody in Russia may suddenly become a victim of the police terror. We are not concerned here with the ultimate consequence of rule by terror—namely, that nobody, not even the executors, can ever be free of fear; in our context we are dealing merely with the arbitrariness by which victims are chosen, and for this it is decisive that they are objectively innocent, that they are chosen regardless of what they may or may not have done.”
― Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism
“As a form of neurosis, race-conscious nationalism almost always ignores logic and knowledge: In the East European civil wars between 1918 and 1920 Jews were slaughtered for a variety of contradictory reasons, as capitalists and as communists, as friends of the Ukrainians, as Polonophiles, as pro-German-just as it suited the circumstances.”
― Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn, Leftism Revisited: from de Sade and Marx to Hitler and Pol Pot
“Except for Christianity, the Nazis reject as Jewish everything which stems from Jewish authors. This condemnation includes the writings of those Jews who, like Stahl, Lassalle, Gumplowicz, and Rathenau, have contributed many essential ideas to the system of Nazism. But the Jewish mind is, as the Nazis say, not limited to the Jews and their offspring only. Many “Aryans” have been imbued with Jewish mentality—for instance the poet, writer, and critic Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, the socialist Frederick Engels, the composer Johannes Brahms, the writer Thomas Mann, and the theologian Karl Barth. They too are damned. Then there are whole schools of thought, art, and literature rejected as Jewish. Internationalism and pacifism are Jewish, but so is warmongering. So are liberalism and capitalism, as well as the “spurious” socialism of the Marxians and of the Bolsheviks. The epithets Jewish and Western are applied to the philosophies of Descartes and Hume, to positivism, materialism and empiro-criticism, to the economic theories both of the classics and of modern subjectivism. Atonal music, the Italian opera style, the operetta and the paintings of impressionism are also Jewish. In short, Jewish is what any Nazi dislikes. If one put together everything that various Nazis have stigmatized as Jewish, one would get the impression that our whole civilization has been the achievement only of Jews.”
― Ludwig von Mises, Omnipotent Government
If you read the last sentence of von Mises quote above, it parallels what passes for “wokeness” today.
Replace all the white and whiteness talk with the word Jew or black and step into a time machine back to the 1930s in Germany or the American South respectively and things ring very familiar. Imagine that we live in a world where the pigmentation that happens to coincide with Christendom, expanded human freedom in commerce and most scientific advances are systemically racist? The word racist has been bandied about with such abandon and furor it means nothing now.
We can all guess whose skin and gender has no legal protection in the corporate world much less the corridors of government power. Imagine a world in which your entire worldview is set on destruction of the dominant paradigm that you will replace with an economic framework that puts all power in the hands elected and mostly unelected apparatchiks because we all know that free markets can’t deliver bear the death, destruction and poverty that communism can. Communism is for two kinds of people: psychopaths and college graduates. And it always ends the same way without exception. Mass deprivation, starvation, destruction and death and the lies; the mountains of untruth, delusion and constant re-framing of the same fundamental question: why are we so fucked no matter how many regulations, diktats and statistics we manipulate.
Because central planning has never worked. The genius of free markets is the atomization of the answers whether worthy or not in ten of millions of daily decisions made by free men using prices [subjectivist marginalist price theory] to rationally allocate resources and time. Once the bureaucrat destroys that system by employing guns instead of specie, you end up with history’s boneyard (figuratively and literally) of communist and socialist shit-pits extant and dead.
We live in a world whose warp and weft are not intersected but bundled under both real and illusory oppression.
You are not an individual human whose identity is dictated by your pluck, persistence, intelligence, luck and work ethic. You are now merely a meat marionette with a carbon armature whose skin tones and groin tackle determine everything that makes you human.
This may be the latest variant in the ambition to make every human on Earth a more effective widget in the planetary government supremacist ecology.
Welcome to Communism 2.0 or homo Sovieticus beta.
To paraphrase Michael Collins, your refusal is your most powerful weapon. You owe it to your children but I did just pick up a mask in Rhodesian brushstroke.
“It has often been said that anti-Semitism is the socialism of fools; it would be more accurate to say that socialism is the anti-Semitism of intellectuals…”
― Theodore Dalrymple
“The bottom line, as Raul Hilberg put it, was that most people thought that, even if Jews shouldn’t be killed, they weren’t worth saving.”
― Victoria J. Barnett, Bystanders: Conscience and Complicity During the Holocaust

Brothers shall fight

shall kinship stain.
Hard is it on earth,
with rampant whoredom;
shields are splintered.
ere the world falls.
Nor ever shall men
each other spare.
