11 March 2017. Blessed are the Peacemakers… For Great is Their Reward in Heaven

____________________________________

The American (and Western) intelligentsia hates Tsar Aleksandr Aleksandrovich. Yet, he was a man who hated war… he had his bellyful of it in the Russo-Turkish War of 1878-79, where he served in the field. You may find the Western chattering classes “good” or you may find Tsar Aleksandr “good”. Which one you choose I’d say speaks volumes of your character…

11 March 2017. My Thoughts on Politics

____________________________________

Yes… politics is a serious business… it’s why we have to keep Liberal extremists like “conservatives” and “liberals” (taken together, they make up “neoliberalism”) from power. Actually, One Nation Conservatism (Red Toryism) and Socialism have much in common. The USA never had conservatism, as it was a Radical Republic (in Continental European terms) from the outset. The USA never had a Conservative leader such as Otto von Bismarck, P A Stolypin, Aleksandr III Aleksandrovich, or Dief the Chief. It’s only had oligarch-loving and money-grubbing Liberals (“conservatives”). No… by its very nature, foundation, and history, the USA is INCAPABLE of Conservatism. Yes, Marine le Pen and Viktor Mihály Orbán are Conservatives… Trump, Ryan, McConnell, Hannity, Buchanan, and Dreher emphatically are NOT such. You can’t be Conservative and believe in the power of money and rule by the One Percent. Do note that all American “conservatives” do so. Oh, yes… Conservatives believe in universal single-payer healthcare, a strong state-funded social safety-net, and a vigorous defence of the environment. “Conservatives” don’t… they’re in favour of greed and rapine by the rich… the country, society, and nature be damned. No similarities between Conservatives and “American Conservatives”, is there?

Keep it focused… don’t call Radical Liberals “conservatives”… what does that tell you about those who do so? Not very bright, are they?

23 December 2015. A Colloquy on Tsars and Pompous Pseudo-Intellectuals

00 tsar aleksandr. two guardians. 170715

______________________________

A friend and I had this exchange (I’m in plain type):

Why do the eggheads hate Tsar Aleksandr? He was faithful to his wife, loved his children, told the truth bluntly and without guile, pardoned all death sentences, and the land was at peace and prospered. What’s wrong with that?

The eggheads hate all tsars because they think that only they can do anything for humanity, and that any who aren’t eggheads are useless…

I need add nothing to that, save to say to beware all pompous airy-fairy pseudo-intellectuals, especially, those who call themselves “liberals” or “progressives”… they have a fancy to test out their ideas… with us as the guinea-pigs. I think that I’d rather pass that “opportunity” up. I’m not alone in thinking that way.
