The White Right Rises (William S. Lind)

Incendiary title aside, this was a good write-up (by William S. Lind of Traditional Right) concerning the recent Charlottesville-like conflicts that have been sweeping America lately. I don't know enough about Lind to give my full endorsement, but he so far seems to be a reasonable paleoconservative with concerns about cultural Marxism and fourth-generation warfare.… Continue reading The White Right Rises (William S. Lind)

Boys Will Be Boys; Girls Won’t (Laura Perrins)

Laura Perrins of The Conservative Woman offers a great, gender-realist critique of the prospect of an all-girl Lord of the Flies remake, and the broader cultural implications of gender neutrality.   "First came the announcement that Hollywood was going to create an all-girls Lord of the Flies, then on Saturday John Lewis said it would… Continue reading Boys Will Be Boys; Girls Won’t (Laura Perrins)

When Does Tradition Become Tyranny? (Isaac Morehouse)

To harmonise the creative and exploratory virtues of unbounded liberty with the wisdom and resilience of tradition is the task of every great libertarian thinker. In his essay Beyond Conservatism: Reclaiming the Radical Roots of Libertarianism, Keith Preston offers some sobering thoughts on the subject: "There are numerous areas of life where people live by… Continue reading When Does Tradition Become Tyranny?

Why Traditionalism and Libertarianism are not Incompatible (Godfrey Bloom)

Godfrey Bloom gives a great speech to the Traditional Britain Group (2014), regarding the natural congruence of libertarianism and traditionalism. Say what you will about the sporadic, less than savoury outbursts that he's infamous for (and there is indeed plenty to say), his grasp of the English legal tradition, and how British liberty is inseparable… Continue reading Why Traditionalism and Libertarianism are not Incompatible (Godfrey Bloom)

Something I Forgot

A belated mourning on my part. My heart goes out to all those affected by the 9/11 terror attacks. I have faith that the guilty will pay for their crimes. This time last year, Jeremy Corbyn came under fire for supposedly "trying to score points," but I think his condolences were worded just right, so… Continue reading Something I Forgot

The Fruits of Same-Sex Marriage (Rod Dreher)

Here's an interesting discussion on same-sex marriage that I came across in The American Conservative. Rod Dreher discusses how the situation in Britain has unfolded, and how the innocuous inclusion of same-sex couples to legally marry lead very quickly to demands for all religious institutions to host and honour gay marriage, whether their canon admits… Continue reading The Fruits of Same-Sex Marriage (Rod Dreher)

Bakunin Speaks! Power Corrupts the Best

Bakunin offers his thoughts on the thorny problems of power, government and democracy. Written in 1867, retrieved from The Anarchist Library. "The State is nothing else but this domination and exploitation regularised and systemised. We shall attempt to demonstrate it by examining the consequence of the government of the masses of the people by a… Continue reading Bakunin Speaks! Power Corrupts the Best

Sean Gabb on State Censorship and Corporate Censorship

A short and interesting discussion on censorship at a state and corporate level. I tend to hear more left-wingers like Chomsky talking about corporate censorship and the problems of limited liability, so it's interesting to hear the perspective of a more conservative-minded libertarian.

There is a Conversation to be Had

I woke up this morning to find Piers Morgan clashing vehemently with some upstart columnist fighting yet again for the removal of a historical monument, this time Nelson's column, erected to commemorate the British victory against Napoleon in 1805. Piers Morgan can be inconsistent and opportunist, no doubt, but when he's on, he's dead on.… Continue reading There is a Conversation to be Had
