Jordan Peterson On Revolutions

Anoop Verma at The Verma Report - 15 hours ago
Jordan B. PetersonJordan B. Peterson is against the idea of revolutions. Here’s an excerpt from his book 1*2 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chao*s: “Even more problematic is the insistence logically stemming from this presumption of social corruption that all individual problems, no matter how rare, must be solved by cultural restructuring, no matter how radical. Our society faces the increasing call to deconstruct its stabilizing traditions to include smaller and smaller numbers of people who do not or will not fit into the categories upon which even our perceptions are based.

*Why the mystique of elite college admissions really does matter* When college admissions and their power to corrupt a certain class of Americans dominates the national conversation, everyone has something to say. One common and acceptable reaction is to condemn the unsurprising unfairness of it all. Another is to inform the world that there are those of us who were admitted to good schools the old-fashioned way, whatever that means. Others still — the optimists among us — issue a call to reform the crooked culture that inflates these institutions’ social capital. As if their ... more »

*Should there be wind farms in Adirondack park* *John Droz has been putting up a big defense against a proposal to put wind turbines up in Adirondack park. A paleoclimatologist has criticized Droz's arguments. The criticisms are however puerile --- pathetically unscientific. They reveal how desperate warmists are that they have to resort to such non-sequiturs. John Droz provides a link to his rebuttal at the foot of his comments below* Here’s a brief chronological history: 1) The Adirondack Park (in upstate NY) is the largest park on the continental US (6 million acres).

How I became a non-voter last week

Luboš Motl at The Reference Frame - 15 hours ago
Last Friday, March 15th, was quite a scary day. Too bad that such days can't be removed or reversed in some way. To summarize the contemporary tragedies with a symbol, that day was the 80th anniversary of the occupation of the rest-of-Czechia by Nazi Germany in 1939. I received a certain hostile letter from a lawyer which has probably devastated me to a similar extent as some Czech patriots were devastated by the occupation 80 years ago. But that's not the only thing. It was also a day when tons of high school kids across the world went to skip the classes in order to support "scien... more »

"In The Only Time You Are Alive..." (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 15 hours ago
"The country seems bigger, for you can see through the bare trees. There are times when the woods is absolutely still and quiet. The house holds warmth. A wet snow comes in the night and covers the ground and clings to the trees, making the whole world white. For a while in the morning the world is perfect and beautiful. You think you will never forget. You think you will never forget any of this, you will remember it always just the way it was. But you can't remember it the way it was. To know it, you have to be living in the presence of it right as it is happening. It can return o... more »

Newt Gingrich on the Mueller report, March 21

Norma at Collecting My Thoughts - 16 hours ago
“President Donald J. Trump is right: Every American should be able to see what Robert Mueller and his team have been doing for the last two years. As the President said on Wednesday, “Let it come out. Let people see it.” For two years, virtually every media outlet – and every left-wing political organization – has been opining, speculating, and fantasizing over what dirt Mueller’s team of Anti-Trump lawyers could dig up on the President and his associates. Again and again, they have used the investigation as a cudgel to attack the Trump administration and rally the so-called “resi... more »

The DCCC Is A Powerful Source Of Great Evil And Corruption Inside The Democratic Party

The DCCC raised $11.6 million last month, more than they ever raised in any February-- even more than in any presidential election year! Tragically, online donors gave nearly $3 million, at an average contribution of $18 in February. Most of these donors have no idea they're feeding their money into the ravenous, bloody maw of Moloch.

China's F-16: Meet the J-10 Fighter (Possibly Thanks to Israel)

Sebastien Roblin at Test Feed Using Fields - 16 hours ago
*Sebastien Roblin* *Security, Asia* Here's what happened. The J-10 “Vigorous Dragon” is a mainstay of China’s effort to modernize its large fleet of single-engine jet fighters, with 350 already in service. An agile tactical fighter similar to the ubiquitous F-16 Fighting Falcon, the Vigorous Dragon was the first domestic Chinese design roughly on par with Western and Russian fourth-generation fighters. However, there is considerable evidence that the J-10’s development was heavily informed by a jet fighter developed by Israel with U.S. engines in the 1980s. Israel first manufac... more »

The New Zealand massacre: seeking healing in national unity

Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man - 17 hours ago
There are doubtless those who will regard it as futile for New Zealand to seek national unity in the aftermath of the massacres at two mosques in Christchurch last week. They'll say the divisions run too deep to fill in, and too wide to bridge. That, however, is not what the majority of New Zealanders appear to believe. They're making an all-out, passionate affair to use this tragedy as a fulcrum towards unity, rather than allowing it to tear their society apart. Exactly a week after a gunman opened fire in the Al Noor Mosque, the ancient call to Friday prayers echoed out over p... more »

The Best Sub on the Planet: Why the U.S. Navy Only Built 3 Seawolf Submarines

Sebastien Roblin at Test Feed Using Fields - 21 hours ago
*Sebastien Roblin* *Security, * A big mistake? Late in the 1950s, the Soviet Navy’s nuclear-powered submarines—starting with the November-class attack submarine—could dive twice as deep as most of their American counterparts and often had higher maximum speed. But they had a conspicuous flaw: they were a lot noisier. That meant American subs were routinely detecting and trailing the Soviet submarines from a distance without being detected in return—a huge advantage had there ever been a conflict. In the 1980s, however, the Soviet Navy began to improve its acoustic stealth game. ... more »

Why It's A Complete Waste Of Money For Democrats To Advertise On Fox News

I started my university career studying history, a topic that fascinated me for my whole life. But maybe I'm wrong about Trump, who I'm absolutely certain in the very worst president-- if he even *is* a legitimate president-- in U.S. history. Yes, he's worse than Nixon or George W. Bush or Reagan and worse than Warren G. Harding, worse than Tyler, Pierce or William Henry Harrison, worse than Buchanan and worse than Andrew Johnson. Fox viewers disagree. A poll shows that 78% of the Republican Fox viewers say Trump is the best president ever-- not just better than Obama, better than...more »

*Warfare History Network* *Security, Europe* [image: By Airwolfhound - commons file, CC BY-SA 2.0,] The strategic bombing campaign against Germany contributed to the final victory during the war in Europe. Behind the strategy that governed the American air war in Europe during World War II lay events and ideas that dated back to World War I and the 1920s. The first strategic bombing raid in 1915 deployed not airplanes but German Zeppelins, rigid airships that dumped ordnance on the east coast of Great Britain. Two years la... more »

Russian Fighter Showdown: Su-35 vs. MiG-35 (Who Wins?)

Charlie Gao at Test Feed Using Fields - 1 day ago
*Charlie Gao* *Security, * [image: Wikimedia Commons] They aren't fighting in the air, but for a big contract in Egypt. Egypt recently turned heads with its decision to purchase twenty advanced Su-35S fighter jets from Russia. This adds yet another unique airframe to Egypt’s inventory, which currently fields Rafales, two generations of F-16s, MiG-29s modernized to near MiG-35 standard, and two generations of Mirages. What could the Su-35S add onto this lineup? What could the political repercussions of the buy be? Given the capabilities of the other aircraft in their fleet, the E... more »

The “Green New Dealers” Have Lost All Perspective

Alan Carlin at Carlin Economics and Science - 1 day ago
Perhaps the worst aspect of the “Green New Deal” (GND) recently proposed by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Edward Markey is that the authors have lost (or possibly never had) all perspective on climate change. They are acting as if climate change were as bad a problem as the Great Depression, and that another “New […]

the Tower of Spring

Bob Dinn at balance10 - 1 day ago
1. Urusvati knows the Tower of Chun (Spring) and remembers how the exterior of the Tower resembles a natural cliff. It is not difficult to prevent access to this Tower. A small landslide can conceal the structure from those below. A small dam can change a mountain stream into a lake, and in time of dire need the entire district can be immediately transformed. People may smile, thinking that organized expeditions could sooner or later penetrate into all the passes. But even before the physical transformation of the area the power of thought would already have diverted the carav... more »

What does the world mean to you if you can’t trust it to go on shining when you’re not there? and there’s a tree, long-fallen; once the bees flew to it, like a procession of messengers, and filled it with honey.

"Acceptance..." (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
"Acceptance is a crucial step forward for those who prefer the idea of living this life over simply existing within it. Accept all that you've said and what you've done, because you cannot change your past. Accept the idea of the unknown, because the future is the unknown waiting patiently to reveal itself. Accept the person you have become thus far in your journey, because you are the only person who will be there with you when you finish it. Do all of this so that you may never find yourself having to accept regret that haunts you at two a.m., leaving you sweaty and broken hearted... more »

*"Why You Should Pretend Today Is the End"* by Ryan Holiday "What would the world look like if everyone lived like it was their last day on earth? Chaos. It might seem liberating but in truth would be quite terrible. Who would follow the law? Who would care about anyone but themselves? What would get done?
