Anthem

It is a sin to write this. –        Anthem, Ayn Rand Blasphemy.  The debate about the national anthem, standing, kneeling, sitting, troops, the NFL, Trump, Goodell.  Kneel to protest police brutality of minorities and in support of social justice; stand to honor the country and the troops.  These are the two sides, and this reality – that these are the only sides – […]

Secession

I am uncertain as to what libertarianism means if it does not allow for individuals to exercise control over their life and property.  This would inherently mean – to the extent possible in an imperfect world – that individuals would be free to choose from any available option of governance / governing structures, or create their […]

Libertarianism Summed Up

The Libertarian Forum, edited by Murray N. Rothbard; April 1, 1969.  The second issue of this obscure journal and already a tremendous insight.  But this can wait…. FBI And CIA After identifying a stupefying (well, for the time) list of government and crony-corporate abuses, Rothbard offers: Libertarians have every reason to view all of these matters with knowledgeable […]

America in the Middle East

America’s Great Game: The CIA’s Secret Arabists and the Shaping of the Modern Middle East, by Hugh Wilford Wilford continues the story with the Americans moving into Cairo; there was a need to coordinate Lend-Lease activities in the region.  It turns out that Lend-Lease was useful for purposes other than sending Jeeps to Europe.  From the time […]

The Libertarian Forum

The Libertarian Forum, edited by Murray N. Rothbard from 1969 to 1984, had a small — even tiny — circulation but it forged the intellectual edifice known as libertarianism. Month after month, the newsletter thrilled, enlightened, shocked, and awed its subscribers. Everything was on the table. The Mises Institute has compiled and published every issue of […]

War Is a Racket

The subject is North Korea.  An interesting conversation at the John Batchelor Show: Gordon Chang, in discussing a piece he wrote at the Daily Beast regarding North Korea and the seeming inevitability of war; I paraphrase the concluding remarks: Thaddaeus McCotter: let me be sure I understand you: there are means at our disposal to pressure communist China to […]

Secession, Liberty, and Private Property

To: Matt@Occidentalism.org September 23, 2017 at 7:00 AM Matt, I am not concerned with my friend’s opinion about a white America.  I am concerned that he was confused about my opinion.  Allow me to clarify: To set the stage, what does one mean by “white America”?  No more non-European migration?  Deporting all those from a non-European ancestry, no matter the […]

America’s Great Game

I meant to make a new nation… –        T.E. Lawrence, Seven Pillars of Wisdom (1922) I had formed a beautiful and gracious image and I saw it melting before my eyes….I did not think I could bear to see the evaporation of the dream which had guided me. –        Gertrude Bell to King Faisal of Iraq (1922) […]

Isn’t It Ironic?

Donald Trump gave his first speech at the United Nations. Irony: the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning. Henry Watson Fowler, in The King’s English, says, “any definition of irony—though hundreds might be given, and very few of them would be accepted—must include this, that the surface meaning […]

The Surrealism of War

I was beginning work on my final post regarding Sean McMeekin’s book The Russian Origins of the First World War, when in my further research, I came across the notes of Maurice Paléologue, the French ambassador to Russia during the war.  The specific section is regarding an inter-Allied conference, held in Petrograd amongst the Allies: Britain, France, Italy and […]

Victors Partition the Ottoman Empire

We are all familiar with the story of the Sykes-Picot Agreement, the agreement between Britain and France for carving up and dividing large portions of the Ottoman Empire after the war.  There is one Entente power not formally included in this common narrative, despite being involved in some of the heaviest and most successful military campaigns […]

Russia’s Strategic Imperative

…circa 1914. The Russian Origins of the First World War, by Sean McMeekin. Prologue In my introductory post on this book, I offered the following regarding the complimentary nature of McMeekin’s book to that of Frankopan’s Silk Roads: My one disagreement – or maybe better stated, skepticism: McMeekin portrays the Russians as cunning diplomats and the British diplomats […]

Regime Repudiates Antifa

…very, very slowly…in my brain, at least. I refer to the events in Berkeley about ten days ago: Trump supporters planned an event; antifa crashed the event and began their chaotic violence.  As I felt at the time, the news to me was not so much the news; the news was how the news was covered. I wrote something on the […]

Maybe It Wasn’t Germany

The Allied and Associated Governments affirm and Germany accepts the responsibility of Germany and her allies for causing all the loss and damage to which the Allied and Associated Governments and their nationals have been subjected as a consequence of the war imposed upon them by the aggression of Germany and her allies. –        Article 231 […]

Where Is the Outrage?

Violence breaks out at Berkeley protest So reports the Los Angeles Times. Some Trump supporters planned a protest; some others showed up in counter-protest.  I will say up front, the rest of this post will shock you; not for what happened, but for the reporting when considering the source. As I have mentioned, I normally don’t react […]

Has Britain Destroyed Western Civilization?

Co-opt Russia or destabilize Russia and cause chaos along its entire frontier – this has been the foreign policy of first Britain, then the United States, for well over 100 years.  It continues even today. The Silk Roads: A New History of the World, by Peter Frankopan. Previously, Frankopan offered an overview regarding Britain’s concern of […]

The Silk Roads to the Great War

The Silk Roads: A New History of the World, by Peter Frankopan. In this part of the story, Frankopan will intersect with Halford Mackinder without ever mentioning his name.  Mackinder gave a presentation in 1904.  To summarize: the coming (from his vantage point) struggle is for the Eurasian landmass – the world island.  My most extensive review of […]
