Monday Livestream: PJ Media’s Megan Fox On Fighting Big Tech and Fake News!

Journalist Megan Fox has had a lot of trouble ever since here work’s been prominently featured on Drudge Report or by Rush Limbaugh. She’s been suspended on twitter multiple times, had her youtube content demonetized, all because she’s a journalist with “wrongthink”. Big Tech is becoming an even bigger big censor, and so we’re going to brainstorm what needs to be done and have some fun along the way.

For those who don’t know Megan’s work, she’s the journalist who helped me break #Comicsgate. Probably the most important voice in the media right now.

The livestream will be Monday at 8:30 PST. You won’t want to miss this.

 

Update: She was just locked out AGAIN today over a completely innocuous and truthful tweet:

Book Review: Dangerous Gamers

I don’t usually review too many non-fic books here (well I did Scott Adams), but I just read  Dangerous Gamers: The Commentariat and it’s war against video games, imagination and fun. I have to say this is probably the most poignant and relevant analysis of our culture and it’s direction I’ve ever read.

It goes into depth on the armchair-quarterback social media outrage, it’s effect on entertainment news and its effect on culture itself. the main thing the book taught me which I’d never thought of before, is pop culture works we consider “political” actually have little to do with politics. I’ll let you read to figure out why, but it’s an extremely interesting hypothesis.

People try to find outrage in everything now, and it’s based on identity of the creators more than the actual content of the messages of the entertainment itself. It’s so ridiculous, and though this book just got me thinking about it anew, the detailed, logical perspective it takes actually made me take a step back to look at the global trends.

It’s heavy, and it’s a little on the long side for the premise, but it’s worth the time if only to open up your mind to what the commentariat class is doing, and how it’s ruining everything for everyone.

My bad, I should have verified the info before posting but it turns out that last WW quote was not real from the book.

Mistakes happen, and we’re definitely so used to seeing it it’s easy to jump at these things that sound exactly like they would be in a comic. Fortunately, it appears DC has some standards.

The Last Crusade: Superseding Nationalism

This  morning I read a lecture from a Catholic-American artist, speaking of art and culture in the context of the overall health of mankind. Naturally, he finds the current neo-Babelism of the globalists to be something troubling, but what’s interesting is he takes a step back in the conflict between nationalism and globalism and finds something more important, and something eternal:

“As much as I lament that these knots and spirals would not be found in a church nowadays except as an expression of Irishness, I lament more that a church nowadays is likely to contain no artwork at all. We are living in a time comparable to the iconoclastic crises; contempt for tradition and sacred art is encountered at all levels of the Church.

Moreover, contemporary secular society is decidedly antitraditional. Those who mass-produce and peddle its culture profit by arousing the desire for novelty; things that are made to endure or to live with can only be sold once. Its music and art exist primarily as electronic simulacra. These can be sent across the world within seconds; bound to no particular place, they go to every nation and move them toward sameness. I do not know if such things can properly be called culture; I do not know if they can even properly be called things. A similar movement toward a postnational world is made in political and economic matters. The rules of national sovereignty are reduced to legal fictions, just as the marks of cultural identity are overwritten or erased.

Unsurprisingly, this provokes a reaction. All over the world, people are concerned to protect their self-determination and cultural identity from foreign influences, from invasive ways that are not theirs. That is to say, that are not theirs as Frenchmen or Englishmen or Germans or Americans. In such a time, when nationalism provides the motive to preserve tradition, and postnationalism the motive to destroy it, it seems that anyone who is a traditionalist in matters of religion or culture or art should and must be a nationalist as well.

The curious thing, however, is that in the history of Christianity, nationalism is not an especially traditional idea. A distinction between nations certainly is as ancient as the Tower of Babel, where the language of the whole earth was confounded: and from thence the Lord scattered them abroad upon the face of all countries. But the idea that nationhood be the foremost way for a man to understand his identity, his place in history and in the world, began in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

The choice presented between nationalism and postnationalism is a false dilemma; there is older way, and that is what is actually expressed in works of art such as the Lindisfarne Gospels and Chartres Cathedral. It is the idea of Christendom: that a man should understand his place in history and in the world not foremost as a member of a particular nation, but rather as a member of the universal Church. This is the way that once was maintained by the Church, and that naturally would be yet, were it not for the failure of its institutional authorities to stand fast, and hold to the traditions they have learned. Perhaps artists can take up the task, if churchmen will not, of reviving this magnanimous idea.

This idea of Christendom does not destroy the particular genii of nations, but neither does it provoke them to battle against each other. It rather establishes principles by which they may together praise the same God. Moreover, it establishes principles by which the Christian tradition may withstand foreign influences; not by barring them entry, but by converting them to its same sacred end, by staking upon whatever is true or good or beautiful in them a legitimate claim. “

He is right that our identities must first and foremost be our eternal citizenship, that of  the Kingdom of Heaven, and also that we should remember the context of our lives and purpose in these end times. What’s great about our heavenly citizenships, is that we may carry dual citizenships with our Earthly nations. Christ in his time on this Earth gave his ministry to one people, the people of Israel, though his focus was on the eternal birth of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. Likewise he urged his followers not to be at odds with Rome, within the bounds Paul created most of his ministry.

I don’t think this is implying nationalism is wrong by any means, and I think it’s important tool to fight the neo-Babelists, but we do have to remember our priorities lay beyond it.

 

Happy Crusade Day

On this day, November 27th 1095, Pope Urban II preached the First Crusade, ordering European Christians to retake the Holy Land from the barbaric Islamic forces that had captured it. He coined probably the most important phrase in history outside of the teachings of Christ Himself, “Deus Vult!”

Celebrate this day by committing to join the Last Crusade, something science fiction author and Christian philosopher John C. Wright has put together in order to encourage us to fight for what’s right and true, in an effort to preserve western civilization and further the Kingdom of Heaven’s reach into this world. John’s stated three main points of attack are some of the most crucial things we must do as Christendom in these last days:

First, to restore the Constitution of United States, as this nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal, is the sole nation in history whose founding was entirely in keeping with the Christian principle that all men are created in the image and likeness of God. This nation is born of a social covenant of men related, not by blood nor race but only by likemindedness, a brotherhood of the spirit.

Second, to restore Chivalry to men, as without the warlike yet courteous spirit unique to the Christian soldier of ages past, no man can be a true man, no wife can love and serve a true husband, no child be reared by a true father.

Third, to restore Christ to the hearts of men, and throw the godless, the impious, the heathen and the atheist from the halls of power. A Christian commonwealth can tolerate a non-Christian minority if the minority can and will abide by the civilized standard of Christian decency, monogamy, honor and honesty in business dealings, and so on.

God’s Kingdom is not something to be won by being passive. We must actively work together to restore the Church. There is no other way.

Never Listen to Pop Science

Gizmodo shows there’s been unintended health consequences of light pollution due to the implementation of LED lights.

Indeed, as the new results show, the amount of outdoor lighting around the world has increased during the past several years. “As a result, the world has experienced widespread ‘loss of the night,’ with half of Europe and a quarter of North America experiencing substantially modified light-dark cycles,” write the researchers in the new study, which was published today in Scientific Advances.

And there’s likely a big correlation to people’s sleep habits becoming dangerous, if the way cell phone use has interrupted sleep cycles is any indication. And what does it do to the wildlife?

It’s far too soon to see how this could be a huge problem for the world, but it’s all because of “do good” intentions of the green lobbies. And this doesn’t even get into how toxic LEDs themselves are for the environment once they burn out and are thrown away, another crisis we’ll have 10-20 years from now.

Do Not Be Unequally Yoked

A reader  left a  rather chilling comment on my youtube channel worth reading:

I had a girlfriend, and relationship lasted about three years. I adored her. Friendship, affection, passion, and common ground in movies and books, with lots of fun sharing…or at least I thought. One day a minority woman was pushing her around, and I saw it as a need for her to stand her ground, as she was supposed to meet with me that day, and changed her schedule after being manipulated by this woman.I should have seen this coming, but did not want to see it. I visited her church and her daughter’s church, and they were both run by women, and the guys that attended were “passive” to say the least. My girlfriend not only dropped me, but cut off all communication literally over night. It took me a couple of months to realize I had accidentally stepped on her virtue-signaling. And, she thought of herself as “traditional.” We had never had a single argument before this, and she was a million miles from bored with me, so some kind of decision was made within her inside female support group that I was not the right kind of person. Ha! Can you say “Converged Churches?” After about three months I realized I was still me and still happy. Plus, I learned how deep this stuff goes.

Converged churches can be the worst of influences. The Bible does warn about relationships, but yes it can be hard to see. But the false doctrines of SJW-isms aren’t something to yoke yourself with either–which goes for what church to attend and engage in as well. It takes really paying attention to a church and a community to see if those there serve Babel, or if they truly serve God. As he said, this goes deep, and it takes staying vigilant constantly, even when you’re in love, which is the hardest of all things to do.
