No Representation Without Taxation

There is an anecdote in Augustine’s great work ‘City of God’ of a conversation between Alexander the Great and a famous pirate named Diomedes. It was written 700 years after the events were supposed to have taken place, by a man living in North Africa under the Roman Empire just before the lights of civilisation went out permanently there.

In the exchange, Alexander asks Diomedes why he plagues the seas. The pirate contemptuously responds, ‘The same reason as you do the world, but while I operate with one boat, I am called a robber; but since you have a great fleet, you are called emperor.’

This exchange goes to the heart of what makes governments legitimate.… Read the rest

Academics: Smug High Priests Of The Establishment
Posted on

The establishment media are scrambling these days. Not only are they floundering financially as the internet destroys their business model, they are also losing their century-long control over the narratives that people use to interpret the world. This is the true power of media – to frame the perceptions that the people of a nation use to determine reality. It is the power to direct the herd, to write the history of the future beforehand and determine the boundaries of the Overton Window of socially acceptable speech, and therefore thought.

In democratic political systems, this might be the greatest power of all.… Read the rest

Ethnic Nationalism Is The New Black

Nazis are everywhere these days it seems. The way the leftist media carries on, you’d think we live in the Weimar Republic. Then again, maybe we do.

In the latest of its many recent moral panics, the establishment media has spent the last few days frothing at the mouth over ‘white supremacist’ hand signals. Here are some at the White House, no less. You know, the one built by slaves.

Not so Independent

The hirsute figure on the right there is Mike Cernovich, a rising figure in the alternative media who organised the now-famous Deploraball in Washington to celebrate Trump’s inauguration.… Read the rest

American Totalitarianism Wears A Black Mask

This piece appeared first on The Daily Caller.

It is no surprise that Berkeley, California has become the scene of another significant battle in the culture war which has erupted across America in recent months. Berkeley is a bastion of the American neo-Marxist left and is at the heart of their 60’s mythology. Last weekend though, for the first time in living memory, the totalitarian American left was defeated on their home turf.

The motley assortment of anti-leftists who came to Berkeley to attend a free speech event organized by independent journalist Lauren Southern were able to push Antifa back despite the actions of the Berkeley Police Department.… Read the rest

It’s All About Love

There are a lot of myths about Christians and Christianity that are repeated endlessly in our media, classrooms and casual conversations. It’s a faith that everyone in the West thinks they understand perfectly and have strong opinions about, however the views that people hold are often not based on any solid evidence. Because we might have gone to Catholic school or seen churches around town growing up, we tend to think we know what all that Christianity palaver is about. Familiarity has bred complacency, if not contempt.

The next time you see that old stone church near the centre of town that is now mostly uninhabited, ask yourself: ‘Why did they bother building it?’ Were they really just brainwashed and superstitious?… Read the rest

Totalitarian Censorship On Social Media

According to Facebook, I’m a purveyor of nudity on social media. Thankfully my wife hasn’t found out. Wouldn’t make for a great Easter long weekend.

The post in question was an article I shared from altright.com dealing with the mainstream media’s silence about Ebba Akerlund, an 11-year-old victim of the recent Stockholm Islamic attack (the one with the truck in the market, if you can’t keep up). The image in question is this one.

Ebba Akerlund, 11-year-old victim of Islamic aggression

When I look at that image, I’m not offended by ‘nudity’. Given that public censorship of nudity is usually related to sexualisation, I find such an accusation by Facebook to be deeply, deeply revolting.… Read the rest

Thanks For Everything, White Guys

Identity politics is the new black these days it seems. You can’t turn sideways without being confronted by another manifestation of it. You open up the Sydney Morning Herald to check in on the propaganda, and Clementine Ford is screeching at you about how she fears for her safety constantly. In Melbourne, probably one of the safest cities in the world for women. Have you seen Clementine Ford? Does Melbourne not have street lights? It’s all very irrational.

Every Monday night on Q&A the cultural Marxist inquisitors of the cult of diversity come together to find more unconquered areas of white male supremacy to colonise.… Read the rest

Trump’s Strike On Syria And The English Empire
Posted on

This piece appeared first on XYZ.

America’s wars always start with a lie. The United States entered World War I in response to the sinking of the civilian ship The Lusitania, however it was later discovered that the ship was being used to supply ordinance to support the Allied war effort against Germany. There is strong evidence that the attack on Pearl Harbour was known in advance by the US military establishment, who let it happen so as to bring the US into the war effort. The Gulf of Tonkin incident which was used to widen US involvement in Vietnam was a sham; LBJ later admitted the Navy might as have been ‘shooting at whales’.… Read the rest

All Deluded On The Western Front

This piece first appeared on The Daily Caller.

The blast from the 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles which President Trump ordered to strike the al-Shayrat airfield in Syria on Thursday has since reverberated around the world. Many Americans are still waiting for the smoke to clear, to make sense of exactly what happened and why.

President Trump and his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson are unanimous in their conviction that the regime of Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons on his own people, thus justifying the attack. Everyday Americans are rightly skeptical when it comes to weapons of mass destruction being used to justify a possible war.… Read the rest
