BY DANIEL JUPP Are there any boundaries that shouldn’t be crossed in the name of a “progressive society”? The progressive offer is a seductive one in one sense: if you accept complete submission and subservience to the progressive ideology, if you accept that the State is all powerful and decides all things, if you normalise the idea that every human being is both flawed and … Continue reading Where does ‘Progress’ End?
BY CAPEL LOFFT To many, the idea of ‘Tory Socialism’ will seem absurd. Conservatism and socialism are widely supposed to be mortal enemies, embodying totally opposite principles. Socialists, we are told, are ‘progressive’: they believe in equality, social justice and the liberation of individuals from all those institutions of hierarchy, arbitrary privilege and tradition that are held to oppress us (and some of us a … Continue reading Tory Socialism
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN It is obvious that there are believers on both sides of the deficient Left-Right political spectrum who have substituted religion with other beliefs. People who have taken a leap of faith to believe all-out in an idea or theory. The primary aim of the conquistadores was Empire, sanctioned by concurrent conversions. In the case of the Left, the Wokerati engage in a … Continue reading Overplaying Postmodernism
BY DOMINIC WIGHTMAN There has been a tendency on the Left to purloin useful words and to try and rob them of their meaning. We have seen this with words like progressive and liberal which – once crucial – are now reduced to a blancmange. And when words have proven difficult to pinch there has been an effort to dilute them by adding a modifier. … Continue reading Postmodern Conservatism Does Not Exist
BY DAVID EYLES (Part 1 can be read here) One way to examine the methods the Left use to go about their pursuit of these ideals, is to examine their patterns of behaviour in a case study. One such case is their embrace of paedophilia over the decades. During the 1970s, the National Council for Civil Liberties (now called Liberty and formerly headed by Shami … Continue reading The World’s Gone Mad Part 2
BY DAVID EYLES The failure of Soviet communism was beginning to become obvious in the 1960s, as the slaughter and repression of the preceding decades slowly became more widely known in the West. This led Socialists and Communists in the West into a crisis of confidence which steadily deepened during the 1970s and 1980s. By 1989, the atrocities of the Soviet era were exposed to … Continue reading The World’s Gone Mad Part I
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 from time to time 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. … 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?
