…just control of the narrative (and the sloppy subversion necessary to organize and maintain the charade). We can debate the cost in another post.

You rulers, do you render justice? Do you judge your people impartially? No!

Weekend 368.0 (Independence Weekend)

(1) Liberal Cosmopolitans Lash Out at the Shattering of Their Worldview (National Review) “Liberal cosmopolitanism, regnant since the end of the Cold War, has bought completely into its own rightness.

Socialism: Lather, rinse, repeat

Death of the Postmodernist Dream by Victor Davis Hanson “The Greek meltdown — with Ireland, Italy, Portugal, and Spain on the brink — has shown that European socialism does not work. Bankruptcy, not politics, is the final arbiter: Individuals, firms, and nations either buy particular bonds or they don’t. And a nation like Greece, in […]
