    Actually, the genetics are not that bad, at least for many of us (see 2nd-to-last paragraph). The more immediate problem is too much prosperity, too many free resources. This bonanza undermines all the cultural technology -- mostly religion -- which undergirds our civilization and makes it possible.

    It's not just ideals and ideas. It's not all abstraction and theory. This is *not* a "proposition" nation as much as Bill Kristol, Mitt Romney, and Dinesh D'Souza may wish it to be so. There is no such thing. It's not a "proposition" nation. It's just a nation. Like, the regular kind. Made up of, uhh, what was it? Oh yeah: people.

    You are making the situation sound more complex ("Balkanized") than it really is. Actually, there are just two main sides to this. There is the Historic American Nation. And then there is the Totalitarian Left, the CTRL-Left let us say, and their hordes of dark-minded peasant pawns. That's it. Just those two sides. There are always many esoteric agendas and many fights going on when you have enough people (and 300 million is enough, believe me). But only those two sides matter. Those are the only sides of importance. Let me quote Peter Brimelow, a smart man: We have a Totalitarian Left in this country. We saw them outside today. And they really believed that they were all on the brink of knocking out the Historic American Nation—the American Nation as it had evolved by the time the 1965 Immigration Act, which opened the floodgates after a 50-year pause. They were going to do this final surge of Third World immigration. They were going to import enough demographic change to make their election irreversible. It is very broken, but I have a penchant for fixing unfixable things. I would strongly guess that you do too, come to that.

    A country is defined by its people. Also by its land (geography, climate, topography, animals) to a lesser extent. But most especially by its people. America has been predominantly defined by an original stock that was particularly hard-working, disciplined, hardy, and adventurous. The extremity of the American situation made the hardiness a requirement, of course, as he was a stern executioner of all who did not meet his exacting standards. The nature of the migrations made for very tight-knit, homogeneous settlements with unusually high mutual trust. Imagine the tiny community of Massachusets Bay Colony after living through 100 winters together. High trust is the life-blood of civilization, and so this spawned one of the highest civilizations known, and perhaps history still yet may label it as *the* highest civilization of all... if we save and rehabilitate it, that is, for there shall be no historians after the collapse. We reached up to the Moon itself. Our Anglo ambition was boundless, our optimism -- and our grit to accomplish it! -- knew no limits. I am not a believer in American Exceptionalism. But there certainly does seem to have been something special about America. Even the casual student of history cannot mistake it. But to define it, one should look to earlier attempts: to Tocqueville, for instance, to Jefferson, to the very journals of the pilgrims and the pioneers. There, you will find the more undiluted spirit, the more pure essence, still alive. How does one keep the Frontier Spirit when one runs out of frontier? My hard-nosed and unwelcome conclusion is: one can't. There is no substitute.

    Long term, economic hardship shifts people toward K-selection and conservatism. It is free resources and abundance that causes the growth of the r-selection strategy aka leftism. "Liberty, Prosperity, and Peace(TM)" Pick one. Maybe two.

    People and sites are being shut down left and right. Actually, I take that back: just right. :D But seriously. This problem is getting over-the-top, unbelievably bad. Now these are nominally private companies doing the de-platforming. So we're supposed to be all for it, yadda yadda yadda. But practical reality has to matter, too. If it doesn't, if your principles have no connection with and no bearing on practical reality, what good are they? Seriously, tell me that. What good are they? This is the practical reality of the situation: to communicate ideas effectively in the modern age requires the internet. It requires, specifically, a Facebook and Twitter presence. If these companies lock you out, you're dead in the water. It also requires that people be able to find you. If Google delists you from their search results: that's it. You're dead in the water. Super dead. "But, but!" you say. But you can still have a website! Anyone can have a website and say anything they choose. Google's a private company and doesn't have to show your site. Facebook's a private company and doesn't have to let you on their network. That's fine if they lock you out: just have your own website. Phew! Problem solved! The internet is still free! Sounds great, but this is not true in this day and age. You cannot have your own website. You most certainly cannot have a website and say anything you choose. In today's day and age, the threats and infrastructure of the internet have evolved such to require the assistance and cooperation of mega-corporations.

    The r-selection is strong with you. Thus, your aversion, your repulsion, indeed your terror. But sorry: there's going to be a whole lot more of this kind of "stupidity" from which you recoil popping up in coming years. The K is coming. Can't stop the K train. http://anonymousconservative.com/

    Well, it's the local office, so actually not a lot of lobbying nor fundraising going on. Mostly taking calls, complaints, and letters from constituents, organizing and tallying them, acting on complaints that can be acted upon (like helping veterans get better health care, get their medals, etc.), visiting hospital grand openings, things like that. Probably all or most of the corruption goes on at the main DC office. If there is any. The rep is actually probably not corrupt (IMHO). I'm just wondering if anything more might be done. I appreciate the input and any other ideas from the creative minds here would be welcome.

    The Social Media Shaming of Pax Dickinson The social media outrage wheel keeps spinning Cathy Young | July 9, 2015 Public shaming and professional retaliation, or even destruction, for unpopular speech seems to have become a regular feature of life—but also a subject of growing concern. Most notably, in the past month, scientists, politicians, and others have rallied to the defense of British biochemist and Nobel laureate Sir Tim Hunt, whose ill-conceived joke about women in science at a conference sparked a Twitter storm and ended his academic career. The pitfalls of social media shaming were recently explored by British journalist Jon Ronson in the acclaimed book "So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed," which examines such notorious incidents as the Twitter mobbing of public relations rep Justine Sacco in December 2013 over a racially insensitive joke. But before Hunt, before Sacco, before the ouster of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich over his opposition to same-sex marriage, there was another drama of career-killing Internet outrage: the undoing of Business Insider Chief Technology Officer Pax Dickinson. It is a story that raises troubling questions about speech and consequences.

    Liberty And Parallel Deep State Structures Arthur Gordian August 14, 2017 A great fault of modern political philosophy is the laxity with which liberty is defined and explained. Most leftists define liberty as the capacity to perform an action in actuality. For example, someone with the freedom to travel but no ticket (nor the money to buy one) would not have that freedom according to a leftist.
