    More about understanding the world:

    No truce with the left:

    “You can’t accommodate the left on social issues.
    You can’t accommodate it on fiscal issues. You
    can’t do it. Period.

    “The left exists to destroy you. It does not seek
    to co-exist with you. Its existence would lose all
    meaning. Any common ground will be used to
    temporarily achieve a goal before the useful idiots
    are kicked to the curb and denounced as bigots
    who are holding back progress.

    “The purpose of power is power. The left is not
    seeking to achieve a set of policy goals before
    kicking back and having a beer. The policy goals
    are means of destroying societies, nations and
    peoples before taking over. If you allow it a policy
    goal, it will ram that goal down your throat. It will
    implement it as abusively as it can possibly can
    before it moves on to the next battle.

    “It’s not about gay marriage. It’s not about
    cakes. It’s about power.

    “More fundamentally it’s about the difference in
    human nature between the people who want to be
    left alone and those who want power over others.

    “You can’t work out a truce with tyrants. You can
    give in or stand up to them. There’s nothing else.

      —“Time is on their side. Numbers are on their side. Demographics are on their side, (at least until they lead us all to ruin.) But the means of prevailing in violent conflict are not on their side, and that is what they are deathly afraid of, and that is why they are so urgently desirous to deprive you of [weapons].”—

      Daniel Greenfield is the correct name, I read him all the time.

      Here is a great excerpt from a great site, the Common Sense Society, they’re anti-communist anti-ruSSian fascist and pro Ukrainian.

      At an earlier stage in European intellectual history, it was common to speak not of individual rights, in the plural, but Natural Right in the singular—meaning a conception of justice rooted in the divine and in nature, dependent on human virtue. A modern conception, on the other hand, often relies on reason alone, seeking to eliminate any frame of reference that transcends the purely human. But is this possible? Does it result in an overly individualistic philosophy that ignores communal life in favor of abstractions

      Here is a video from that site https://vimeo.com/56086889 Poor sound quality, head phones a must, but very good discussion.

    there is something of an art to speaking to the brainwashed
    by Paul Rosenberg

    http://www.freemansperspective.com/speak-to-the-brainwashed/

    “In all of human history, there may be no greater
    conditioning system than our modern government
    schools (including all the private schools that
    follow the same pattern).

    “… you must start by understanding that these
    “brainwashed” people have spent a huge portion
    of their lives inside a massive mind-warp. Don’t be
    too quick to toss them aside. Learn patience. Breaking
    out of their mold is scary, and it takes time.

    “The roots are deep and old; they are backed up
    with violence and fear. It comes down to this:

    “The very existence of the state requires you to
    be brainwashed.

    “Every state (communist, fascist, theocratic,
    whatever) rests on the concept of legitimacy:

    “It is right that one group of men take everyone
    else’s money by force and tell them what to do.

    “understand that we are heretics to the majority
    culture, to the brainwashed culture. We cannot
    expect them to simply come along at our first
    statement of truth. Agreeing with us is far more
    than an act of reason; it is an act of courage…
    and people require time to work up to that.
