    Clearly, everything is not bunnies and light, but nevertheless better than they were.. There is a good dose of half-baked stuff on that page, but a few good comments by those using their brains as more than hat racks were also present. To wit: The only thing there to which I take exception is the implications of the use of "robber baron". Beyond that, the statement is on the money. I see three general factors beyond the usual cycles of discovery as cited above to be of major influence. Firstly, government regulation. Consider ACA, the costs of which serve as a barrier to entry for entrepreneurial endeavors. SOX is yet another HUGE cost that keeps little guys out of play. Then there is the lingering aftermath of the dotcom fiasco where imbecile investors tossed money around without due analysis and got burned in wide and deep fashion. Consider that 23 year old infant who was handed $30+ million and threw a launch party with The Who as the entertainment. He went to prison as I recall, but that didn't get the investors' cash back.

    The more we turn our backs to the UN, the better. The only exception is our position on the security council. Being able to veto their hair-brained schemes remains a useful thing, IMO. It would be my druthers that the UN be dissolved, but practically speaking it is not a good idea due to the corrupt nature of humans. If the UN is eliminated, just as it replaced the League of Nations, so would it too be replaced. UN is a known quantity and with our commanding position therein, the shenanigans can be managed and mostly thwarted. If a new organization were to rise from the ashes of UN, people would likely fall for whatever line of bullshit was being fed them as to why it is so necessary for everyone to come together as "one" and waive their individual rights in favor of those collective. Given the forces at play, eliminating UN could be more harmful than carefully thwarting that which is now well understood. And for the record, "UN Human Rights Council"... really... this doesn't even rise to the status of a joke. I've read and analyzed the UN Declaration of Human Rights. It talks a lot and says nearly nothing - weasel-wording from front to back, either designed to mislead or written by people who apparently cannot string more than two words together in coherent and sound fashion. The document is a travesty on its best day.

    The answer is, no. The west has no stomach for what is needed to preserve its liberty from creeping tyranny, let alone the moral and physical courage to preserve its life. Half a century of progressive rot has done irreversible damage. HAS THE WEST THE WILL TO SURVIVE?

    Wait a minute... Peter Fonda is an actor? GTFOOH. And all this time I thought he was just riding the coat tails of daddy in a pathetically vain attempt at appearing as if he had done something relevant with his sadly pointless existence, just like his sister, who at least had tits. As for his call to feed Trump's son to rapists, perhaps he should be served up a heapin' helpin' of the same... which is to say that he should be so fed, and not his children who, while likely as degenerate as dad, presumably had no part in this penultimate example of human nobility. The Fondas support my estimation that the "greatest generation" was, in fact, the worst. After all, did they not issue forth my generation, the so-called "baby boomers" who made up the ranks of filthy, stoopid hippies? Where in hell were those of the "greatest generation" when they should have been whipping the hides off of their even more stoopid progeny, who have in turn raised the millennials - the weakest and most intellectually bereft generation to date, soon to be surpassed by their own brood-hordes of demented, gender-fluid über-phaggs, so frightened, timid, ignorant, and dependent upon others for everything?

    That's just the point. There are too many "in a body" to "intermix". They do not become us. We become them. And the "habits & principles" are almost all universally bad. The largest immigrant groups, totaling over half, come from cultures and nations where corruption, caste slavery and hostility toward individual liberty and limited government abounds.

    I used to think this way. The last couple of years has been a real eye opener. The US Bolshevik Left cannot be made allies of. They cannot be ignored. This isn't overheated rhetoric driven by click bait partisanship on the intertubes.

    Mom Brought 10-Month-Old to the Hospital for a Cough—And Cops Kidnapped Him https://thefreethoughtproject.com/mom-brought-10-month-old-to-the-hospital-for-a-cough-and-cops-kidnapped-him/ The state of Minnesota is kidnapping children with no due process and for no reason. The latest case of government kidnapping shines some much needed light on these baby snatchers. By Jay Syrmopoulos June 20, 2018 St. Paul, MN — What began as a routine trip to the doctor for her child’s cough culminated in Amanda Weber having her ten-month-old son Zayvion being taken out of her home and put into foster care. This pattern of government kidnapping children has become such an issue in Minnesota that hundreds of parents have formed a group to fight it.

    The suicide of the west in three paragraphs. Man’s mind is his basic tool of survival. Life is given to him, survival is not. His body is given to him, its content is not. To remain alive, he must act, and before he can act he must know the nature and purpose of his action. He cannot obtain his food without a knowledge of food, and the way to obtain it. He cannot dig a ditch – or build a cyclotron – without a knowledge of his aim and of the means to achieve it. To remain alive, he must think. But to think is an act of choice . . . Reason does not work automatically; thinking is not a mechanical process; the connections of logic are not made by instinct. The function of your stomach, lungs, or heart is automatic; the function of your mind is not. In any hour and issue of your life, you are free to escape from your nature, from the fact that reason is your means of survival – so that for you, who are a human being, the question ‘to be or not to be’ is the question ‘to think or not to think.’ Thinking is man’s only basic virtue, from which all the others proceed. And his basic vice, the source of all his evils, is that nameless act which all of you practice, but struggle never to admit: the act of blanking out, the willful suspension of one’s consciousness, the refusal to think – not blindness, but the refusal to see; not ignorance, but the refusal to know. It is the act of unfocusing your mind and inducing an inner fog to escape the responsibility of judgment . . . Non-thinking is an act of annihilation, a wish to negate existence, an attempt to wipe out reality. Ayn Rand - For the New Intellectual.
