Artists use lies to tell the truth, while politicians use them to cover the truth up. - Evey Hammond, V for Vendetta.

I always thought that Van Gogh was overrated, his status seems to be the result of massive propaganda that can been seen to this day. He was even shoehorned into Dr. Who. When they are pushing a topic into something as iconic as Dr. Who you know it's not authentic or organic in nature. It's like seeing the Matrix, it's not something you can unsee.

Sadly there is a vast mass across the West that just want to belong without questioning. It's a very sad state of affairs.

I would argue that it is not just Marxism and Nihilism, it is also Managerialism, that everything about people should be managed this way or that, rather than just letting people be. They are trying to turn the world into one giant Skinner Box, and I find it very annoying.

Children are uncorrupted, and that's why they want to get their hands on them. Here in the UK there is a Bill going through Parliament that will outlaw homeschooling. In a way this is terrible, on the other hand the desperation with which such things are being pushed shows that they are not as secure in their positions as they might have us believe.

Not everything that can be counted counts and not everything that counts can be counted - Albert Einstein.

The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature by Steven Pinker should be read in every school and then we wouldn't have all this drivel about everything being a social construct.

Marriage rates have a lot to do with the economic conditions of men and the ridiculous state of family law. Once a man has seen a freind go through the family courts and lose his kids, his house, and a large chunk of his salary because his now ex-wife just felt like leaving they decide that it's not worth the risk.

Of course one could just ridicule the maps that are wrong so no-one would follow them lest they be thought a fool.

"If people are together and forming traditional families rather than single and overworked trying to do everything themselves, then they are much more difficult to control by the state. If people’s identities are attached to other people they love rather than to their job or the state, then the state doesn’t have as much power over them."

Everything in the State, nothing outside the State, nothing against the State. - Benito Mussolini

"The online prostitute is consistently blamed for emotional the demise of men."

The 2nd the is in the wrong place, at this rate you'll have to start paying me as your editor ;)

"Art is not the realm of objects, it is the realm of the human spirit."

Art is emotional technology.

Thanks for writing about all this, but . . . other races, blacks in particular, don't like traditional euro art because it's racist. Feminists don't like it because it's patriarchal.

Beautiful manifesto. Your discussion of Godspeed triggered the following thought:

Referring to a 'gender binary' is a deliberate rhetorical choice. It makes one think of 0 and 1, no and yes, is and is not - thus that the male is the negation of the female, or vice versa. It's no accident that gender theorists speak of their opponents 'denying existence'; negation is built in to their worldview at a conceptual level. They seek to negate negation, and end up splitting reality into a thousand fragments - thus the endless proliferation of gender identities.

To think in terms of sexual polarity is subtlely but profoundly different. North and South are part of the same indivisible whole. They do not negate but rather complete one another; while each is distinct, neither can exist without the other. Sexual polarity brings to mind not the arid pixelation of the digital but the organic continuum of the magnetic and the attraction and repulsion this implies, or the cyclical topology of the sphere rotating on its axis.

Regarding how to pick up the crown - ah, there's the trick.
