BY DAVID EYLES Most of us are mystified by the current course of events. There seem to be so many contradictions in politics and elsewhere. In fact, many contradictions seem to have become political even when they had nothing to do with politics in the first place. For example, the simple matter of deciding what sex you are has now been subdivided into a myriad … Continue reading The Post Modernist Final Solution
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Red-pilling Corbynites is not that complex a sport – far fewer parameters than fly-fishing and certainly less taxing than golf. Just sidestep those lost cultist zombies who require professional deradicalisation by Prevent (or, my preferred therapy, a few months in one of Chavez’ socialist barrios in Caracas, from which they will emerge, I assure you, Friedmanite). Best hone in on targets with grey … Continue reading Conservatives are Fools?
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Banzai Conservatism has conservatism at its heart. Combining a disposition to preserve with an ability to improve (Burke). Conservatives are people who love something actual and want to retain it (Scruton), but they also need to defend that something actual. In other words, often in their battle of a generation, they need to fight to defend their love. Conservatism involves 3 scenarios: … Continue reading Banzai Conservatism
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Al Gore didn’t invent the internet, yet if you watch his latest film, audiences might assume he alone launched the modern battle against climate change. An Inconvenient Sequel is a follow-up to the 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth. The original film won an Oscar and is bible-material for adherents of the Green Blob. An Inconvenient Sequel seeks to cement Gore’s legacy, resulting … Continue reading Population Doomsayers Always Wrong
CSM EDITORIAL This is a video which should be spread far and wide. In it the Great Thomas Sowell explains how he moved on from the quick fix addiction of Marxism. It’s only a short video so even those really busy student followers of Mr Corbyn will have time to watch this. Even better – it’s free to view and only lasts four minutes. Do … Continue reading A Video To Help Blind Corbynites See
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN I get called an imperialist quite a lot. This has much to do with being a white-skinned, green-eyed Englishman with links to the mining sector, who regularly travels on business to West Africa and South-East Asia. Unfairly, I get mistaken for a gringo when we are in my wife’s homeland of Venezuela, where Americans were referred to by the late Hugo Chávez … Continue reading The Economic Imperialist Misdirection
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN Throughout History power has been shaped by the Crowd. Whether the Bolshevik hordes or Wat Tyler’s Peasants’ Revolt, when the masses marched and massed in sufficient numbers in valuable locations they succeeded in altering the status quo. Often their countrymen would not hear about changes affecting them because of the actions of the Crowd until many days or weeks later; when historic news … Continue reading The Crowd is Dead
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN When Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn holds his rallies, he not only entices the old, battered diehards of Britain’s far-left – those from Militant to the Socialist Workers Party to Left Unity – he also attracts considerable numbers of youthful political virgins, who have never joined a political party before. I have concluded that these people are wandering inadvertently into socialism; swallowing assumptions … Continue reading What Drives Corbyn’s Young Lemmings?
