    And that's the heart of the problem and the ultimate weakness of the "live and let live" mentality. The most retarded response to the breakdown of society is "But how does it affect you?" You can't have a working society made up of people with no moral backbone.

    The last three pages have resembled an argument over whether it is "Kiev" or "Keev"
    All the while, 500,000 more Ukrainian men have been ordered into the meatgrinder by Zelensky, Antony Blinken and Victoria "The War Pig" Nuland.

    This is a fair comment, I think. The Great Replacement has happened. Past tense. It is very, very bleak to witness in real-time in your own homeland. These are the towns and places you used to recognise, and that is the depressing part.

    A few years ago I went and visited the street where my grandmother grew up. Churchill warned them that unless they fought, and died, and won, German would be spoken on the streets of England. On my visit, I didn't hear any German being spoken, or much English. The same street where my grandmother was playing and her own mum pulled her back inside the house before the road was hit with rogue machine gun fire from a Luftwaffe bomber overhead. Yes, it's demoralising.

    All of the foolish talk of "ganging up" and "fighting" this decaying, decadent and inhuman Western Liberal order is just completely retarded. I hate to hear smart people talk like this.

    The West will have to find a new way - and there's no political solution to be had, certainly not in our lifetimes. Not while we continue to place our belief in the current political process and reluctantly vote for the Republican or Conservative parties.

    The change needs to occur at the spiritual level. Scoff at the neo-pagans all you want, but I understand their attempts because a new religion is a actually needed. Our civilisation and our own existences need to be revised, and gradually there will be a trickle of migration to a new sort of Byzantium, maybe somewhere in Eastern Europe? Who knows where.

    It's difficult to put into words, but no 20th century "ism" can appropriately describe our problems or provide a cure - but it's not entirely gloomy and adversity provides opportunity for growth.

    The only problem I see with that is I'm not sure if a society CAN be moral when its wealth becomes so ubiquitous that nearly anyone can assuage their dopamine addictions by whichever means they choose -- legal or illegal.

    Perhaps morality dies not on some tall hill with flags waving and shells exploding, but rather one tiny compromise at a time. And when it's gone and trouble festers, everyone looks around wondering "How?"

    Exactly!

    There were no delusions about the universal applications of the Founders ideas among the Founders themselves.

    They knew their vision only worked among an in-group that they were a part of.

    But history has been hijacked and source materials all but banned. So everything they wrote (which is only read in 5th hand sources) is filtered, by so called conservatives, through the Marxist lens of the interchangeable man.

    Gold broke through $2400 today. I believe that's a 20% increase in one month.

    Here's an interesting analysis; lots of information presented pretty quickly and concisely:

    Tucker Carlson: A Consistent Theme Of American Foreign Policy Is That It Is Always The Christians Who Suffer

    If he doesn't already, Tucker is beginning to understand.

    If Christian leaders won't stand up for the lives of Christians, why have them in the first place? And that's probably a good question. So you would think that in Congress there were there are many self-professed Christians. Somebody might be piping up on behalf of their brethren in the Holy Land. But no, just the opposite. In fact. For example, at a town hall event last month, Michigan Congressman Tim Walberg, a former evangelical pastor, said he would like to see the region treated like Hiroshima was treated.
    Correction, Tucker: Judeo-Christian leaders.

    Brazil has fallen. They are freezing the assets and bank accounts of journalists and confiscating their passports. Pay attention. Coming to a western nation near you.

    Is this supposed to be a bad thing?
