Conservatives have every reason to be depressed. Like the Armenians, we too were beaten last November and beaten badly. But I think it is better to compare us to the Russians in the fall of 1941 or our own ancestors on the 8th of December of the same year. The Germans and Japanese seemed unstoppable,… Continue reading Looking at the Bright Side
Several posts ago I posited that the second most consequential result of the coup in 2020 will be the great awakening of the Right. A friend of mine asked me where I saw the signs of this. This is a good question and I’ve been stewing on it. In a nutshell, I view what is… Continue reading Signs of a great awakening on the Right are everywhere.

It has been famously said that there is nothing new under the sun. It was true thousands of years ago, and if the intervening years are any indication of the future, it will be true thousands of years from now.

Like habits, institutional power is hard to break. Power by its nature is hard to take from the possessor as he will naturally use it to retain it. Institutional power is especially hard to take because not only will institutions defend themselves, their power is granted by the collective acceptance and habits of the people… Continue reading Institutional Power vs. the Right

We assumed that we all agree that this is the Home of the Brave, Land of the Free, and that In God We Trust. We all believed in The American Dream, the… Continue reading Metamorphosis: How the Right now perceives the Left

The Bull will go where he wishes, and if you stand in its way you will get… Continue reading Metamorphosis: The Great Bull of the Right
The Common Man by his nature is historically illiterate or almost so. He knows the myths of his people and the tenets of his religion and any basic history that permeates his culture. For him to function as a member in good standing that is all he really needs to know. If he delves too… Continue reading Since 1865 America has been run by the split personality of Old New England
Seems to me that the Left has by its massive power play of 2020 either wildly overplayed its hand or has rightly judged that it was time to convert the cultural gains of the last 50 years into institutional currency. Regardless, the second most consequential result of the coup is the great awakening of the… Continue reading Fighting the Leftist media, fighting fire with fire, Conservatives boycotting
