MAKE America GREAT GREAT AGAIN - WHAT IS NATIVISM?

Nativism is always aligned with an impulse or strategy to shape the culture with which it claims to have this privileged intimacy. It is urgently intent on identifying enemies and confronting them, and it is hostile to the point of loathing toward aspects of the society that are taken to show their influence. 
What is being invoked is the notion of a precious and unnamable essence, second nature to some, in the marrow of their bones, in effect. By this view others, whether they will or no, cannot understand or value it, and therefore they are a threat

What good are the humanities? Why are they at the centre of our education

Alexis de Tocqueville, an early and enduring interpreter of American civilization, published his greatDemocracy in America, in two volumes, in 1835 and 1840
'Literature was an arsenal open to all, where the weak and the poor could always find arms'.  

And it is interesting to note that for Tocqueville there is no simple notion of utility. This awakening of minds and spirits is a sunlight that falls across the whole landscape of civilization

What is being invoked here is the notion of a precious and unnameable essencee, second nature to some, in the marrow of their bones, in effect by this view  whether the general public will or not understand or value it,  i.e if you are not for the the 'higher' moral precepts set by those armies you are therefore a threat and the so called educated are not slow to show their disdain



The Humanities trans formative emergence has historically specifiable origins in the English and European Renaissance, greatly expedited by the emergence of the printing press. At the time and for centuries afterward it amounted to very much more than the spread of knowledge, because it was understood as a powerful testimony to human capacities, human grandeur, the divine in the human. And it had the effect of awakening human capacities that would not otherwise have been imagined.

But Cometh the hour, cometh the man/woman

So how relevant is the Humanities in today's uber competitive globalised world?

There is no denying that the Humanities can offer a deep aesthetic satisfaction on a personal level yet does it provide the means in the job market to get students out of debt that hands over their first decade of  THEIR  WORKING lives?  Indeed one might ask Is Studying a Shakespearean sonnet relevant or is discovering the leak in the plumbing system more relevant in today's competitive job's market,

Currently there is a rather inchoate cluster of anxieties that animates is the body of learning and thought we call the humanities and this come with the realisation that  the world is changng in these globalized times, TRUMP BREXIT, AUSTRIA, CZECH REPULBIC Catalonia
GERMANY , their is a new Renaissance called sovereity, the nation state, borders, walls
all anathea to those schooled in the Humanities 


yes, Oh the times! Oh the customs!   O tempora, o mores!



This saying from Classical times relate to the theory of world history developed by Oswald Spengler which holds that all major cultures undergo similar cyclical developments from birth to maturity to decay

It is a convention of modern literature, and of the going-on of talking heads and public intellectuals, to project what are said to be emerging trends into a future in which cultural, intellectual, moral, and economic decline will have hit bottom, more or less.
So has the germ of decay, not an Enlightenment but a darkening of the intellectual being engender by the 85 per cent of the Professorial and what emerges from this pedagogy
is the media talking heads, the unusual suspects, of  a kind of talk always seems brave and deep. depending on which country happens to be the focus of Spenglerian gloom.The specifics concerning this abysmal future are vague— the indigenous populations are viewed as deplorables by the soi disant educated classes

How the elite weep for the Paradise of no borders diversity, of us all  being one
surely this kind of idealism went out with Keats imbuing of the vases with human qualities
whoever is the focus of Spenglerian gloom and whatever make them deeper or better than us
poor benighted souls
Since the new cost of university is weighed against potential earnings, students and families being so burdened, the humanities are under great pressure to justify their existence' There is a great deal of questioning now of the value of the humanities, those aptly named disciplines that make us consider what human beings have been, and are, and will be


THE DEMAND NOW IS FOR THE omnicompetent in service to the ever-changing needs and demands of the new economy—

HERE IS A Fundamental slovenliness in much public discourse that can graft heterogeneous things together around a single word, HAVE A DEBATE WITH A LIBERALISM SCHOOLED NO DOUBT IN THE HUMANITIES  AND SHIELD YOUR EAR AGAINST THE NAME CALLING
I am speaking of the mainstream media, therefore of the institutions that educate most people of influence in America, including journalists. Our great universities, with their vast resources, their exhaustive libraries, look like a humanist’s dream BUT THESE ARE THE VERY
INSTITUTIONS WHO HAVE PRODUCED A CABAL OF LEFT MEDIA JOURNALISTS
WHO RULE THE INFORMATION ROOST

How to debate the name calling left



This is a little advice piece on how to handle the liberal/progressive's most powerful weapon, name calling.


Whenever they are being defeated in a debate or conversation, will fall back on the cries of
“That’s racist, that’s sexist, that’s homophobic, that’s white supremacisT,  you are  Nazi, in fact you are a reincarnation of Hitler',
This crude approach is rightly termed the ad hominen type OF ARGUMENT you are losing the argument so
attack the man/woman on a personal level.

So here is a No 1 rule when debating with someone of a liberal leftist bent
at the outset say
''I will debate the matter with you with the proviso you do not resort to name calling or personal insult.'


If they (Liberals) do resort to name calling, just walk away, no doubt the name calling out
will follow you (my experience on many occasions)  as you exit the hall or room.

They no doubt will feel vindicated, you know that they have lost the argument by their resorting to the personal insult. 

Ad hominem (Latin for "to the man" or "to the person"), is in which an argument is rebutted by attacking the character, motive, or other attribute of the person making the argument, rather than attacking the substance of the argument itself.

Character assassination is a deliberate and sustained process that destroys the credibility and reputation of a person, institution, organization, social group, or nation.[1] Agents of character assassinations employ a mix of open and covert methods to achieve their goals, such as raising false accusations, planting and fostering rumours, and manipulating information.

Character assassination is an attempt to tarnish a person's reputation. It may involve exaggeration, misleading half-truths, or manipulation of facts to present an untrue picture of the targeted person. It is a form of defamationand can be a form of ad hominem argument.

The fallacy that Harvey Weinstein has a disease.

So that’s alright then, all those ‘alleged’ abuses of young women wasn’t me Your Honour it was my disease. You see I have a disease your Honour, in other words I am a victim.
You see your Honour I was brought up in the Oprah culture
ff letting it all hang out....of then seeking self help and sharing about
In on national television about being a victim of my disease

The blind arrogance of Michelle Obama and of those so ill-equipped to lecture us

'We go high while you go low' is one of Michelle Obama's stunningly banal urgings for her friend Hillary Clinton in the recent US Elections.  

Surely one pauses before lecturing others

AND IF you do decide to lecture others one has to have a large slice of certainty - it comes with 
arrogance and blind sight.

An insight into the Obama's vision is allowing there daughter to be an intern at the Weinstein Institute
is this not stupidity on a giant scale, but when you are enamoured of Hollywood, which one feels the Obama's are,  all rational action goes out the window.

I rest my case on the late lamented Christoper Hitchens views on Michelle Obama's acumen

Christopher Hitchens view on Michelle Obama's thesis was:

 'this is not written in any known language'

Hitchens continues: 'In Michelle Obama’s commencement speech at Tuskegee — which is designated as a historically black university — she encouraged graduates to challenge and rise above the racially-based slights, insults and indignities they may face.
“The road ahead is not going to be easy,” Obama said in her address. “It never is, especially for folks like you and me.
 Is this not the rage of entitlement?  Because 

while we

come so far, the truth is those age-old problems are stubborn, and they haven’t fully gone away.” (So my fellow Americans keep that sense of division and resentment on the boil.) 
Hitchens reminds us that Michelle Obama failed to mention that her Grades to get into Princeton University were not good enough, however she was the beneficiary of 'affirmative action' (in the US those deemed a minority are given extra help).

Barack Obama is keen to browbeat those who would "even insinuate" 

that affirmative action rewards the undeserving, results in inappropriate 

job placements, or stigmatizes its presumed beneficiaries.


In the case of Michelle Obama, affirmative action did all three.  

The partners at Sidley Austin learned this the hard way. 

 In 1988, they hired her out of Harvard Law under the impression that the degree meant something. 

 It did not.  By 1991, Michelle was working in the public sector 

as an assistant to the mayor.  

By 1993, she had given up her law license.


Had the partners investigated Michelle's background, they would have 

foreseen the disaster to come.  Sympathetic biographer Liza Mundy writes, 

"Michelle frequently deplores the modern reliance on test scores, describing herself 

as a person who did not test well."She did not write well, either.  

Mundy charitably describes her senior thesis at Princeton as "dense and turgid."  

The less charitable Christopher Hitchens' observes:
"To describe (Michell Obama's thesis) as hard to read would be a mistake; 
the thesis cannot be 'read' at all, in the strict sense of the verb; this is because 
it wasn't written in any known language." 

Michelle had to have been as anxious at Harvard Law as Bart Simpson was at Genius School.  
Almost assuredly,
 the gap between her writing and that of her highly talented colleagues 
marked her as an affirmative 
action admission, and the profs finessed her through.


But Let us imagine you are an adviser to Michelle Obama

You advise her against doing the Karaoke spot with James Corden
and you inquire why would you want to do it anyway?

Let us imagine her reasoning ‘it’s fun’ and it has an audience of millions
She doesn’t say.  

You in turn don’t say this is an ego trip, to do this schlock, glitz
gig, neither do you say ‘what about the dignity of office.
Besides it is decidedly low brow.  You don't say that as it would
deem you an elitist cultural snob

What do you mean, low brow?

I mean you are not discussing the irony  or conservative elements
 in a Brahms concerto, besides pop music today is the main, pornographic.

 You don’t say, in fact you don't say  anything because you know
you are up against the cultural tsunami that is so evident
 today in adolescent America.  

Goodbye and good riddance then ISIS, you will wave your flag no more

 June 2014: An Isis fighter in Raqqa province celebrates after the group’s capture of territory in Iraq leads it to declare a worldwide Islamic ‘caliphate’
(picture of a naive thug)

YOU WILL WAVE YOUR FLAG NO MORE


Let us celebrate the defeat of Islamic State and its hateful so-called caliphate – and keep a wary eye out for the next fight.

Many recruits for ISIS from the UK, Belgium or France were young men of immigrant background with records for petty, and sometimes serious, crime and a superficial knowledge of the faith they professed to follow. 

Let us call them ignorant thugs who were not averse to blowing up young children (Manchester)
or stabbing to death young beautiful girls at a French rail station
(Wake up Monsieur ex banker Macron)  (one wonders if the childless Frau Merkel can emphasize with such a crime, but if one has daughters of a similar age one's blood runs cold thinking of such horror, 

Laura Paumier, left and her cousin Mauranne Harel, were stabbed to death by Ahmed Hanachi at Marseilles-Saint-Charles railway station



Isis offered everything a street gang does – adventure, status, even financial and sexual opportunity – but with the bonus of redemption from past sins and resolution of a complex identity crisis.

The difference betweem a piece of marble and human kind is temporal

Thus the difference between a piece of marble and a sensing, conscious creature is a difference in temporal stages of matter


The philosopher  Diderot illustrates with a thought experiment of a marble statue, ground into powder, mixed into the earth, out of which plants grow, which animals eat. In turns the animals are eaten by us – what Diderot calls the “animalisation” of matter.

How poverty have a tendency to be passed down

 Dr Adam Perkins, a lecturer in the neurobiology of personality at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London. 

Perkins is a social scientist whose research findings pose a direct challenge to one of the central planks of left-wing ideology.


Over the past five years, he has accumulated a mass of evidence about the personalities of welfare claimants and concluded that individuals with aggressive, rule-breaking and anti-social tendencies — what he calls the ‘employment–resistant personality profile’ — are over-represented among benefit recipients. He also found that their children are likely to share those traits, which helps explain why poverty has a tendency to be passed down from one generation to the next

Who exactly are the 'Resist' movement?

First and foremost they are academia and the education industry. 
These are the Indoctrinators: from nursery school teachers, to tenured university professors and most of the administrators. They see their jobs more as social justice activism rather than teaching. This is a “resistance” that has nearly all of academia on their side. These are the most dangerous, for they are shaping the minds of our children and our future generations.  
Then, there are The Enforcers: such as all the progressive social media giants like Facebook, You Tube and Twitter who push a leftist agenda and try to stifle conservative ideas and speech.
Add to that the high tech conglomerates such as Apple, Google, and Microsoft, the left-leaning CEOs of many huge multinational corporations, billionaires like George Soros, Ted Turner and Richard Branson, and the thousands of NGO’s - all of whom spend millions promoting progressive causes.
Next is the propaganda wing of the “Resistance,” which just happens to be around 90 percent of the media entertainment complex, including most news channels, most newspapers, late night comedians, news anchors, ESPN and other sporting franchises and, of course, nearly all of Hollywood and most of its pundits, hangers-on and celebrities.  
And last but not least, one of the wealthiest, most powerful political parties in the whole Western world: the Democratic Party and all their minions in the American civil service and the Deep State.
Does that sound like a struggling, oppressed and poorly financed resistance? Or, does it sound more like a vast, controlling, obscenely wealthy progressive network that uses every tactic at its disposal to oppose a democratic election result - from indoctrination and propaganda to the suppression of free speech and the violence practiced by Antifa, aka the well funded and armed wing of the “Resistance.”
Bizarrely then the Resist movement are the very thing they say they are fighting against. They say they are fighting “fascism” but then they use fascistic methods to bully, demonize and silence all who disagree with them. From Hillary calling Trump voters “deplorables” to the nearly militarized thugs of Antifa calling anyone with a conservative or libertarian viewpoint “Nazis,” their aim is to dehumanize their opposition. This is hardly what a real resistance to so-called fascism would be doing.
They honestly believe they are pro-Freedom but, in fact, they are supporting those politicians and Establishment figures who are behind The Deep State: the powerful, and utterly corrupted part of our government that see themselves as rulers and elites, and not as representatives of the people. The shadowy figures behind the #Resist movement are for globalism and big government.
A globalist government does not value borders, or countries, or value any sense of national sovereignty. This is why they are pro open borders. Why have laws for citizens when non-citizens can now vote in this new global egalitarianism? Why be a part of government in one country when ruling the world is a much more attractive prospect?

Laws are promulgated by a will but if all is determined what then of God;s laws?

A law can only be a law if it is the product of a will.

And a law must be bounded

But if we are part of a Universe or Multiverses countless Unverses
and TIME is ETERNAL and SPACE is INFINITE

How then can God's laws stand?

Border anxiety gripping Europe - Austrian election result is further evidence

The dramatic victory of Sebastian Kurz in Sunday's Austrian election will send shock waves across Europe. The dashing new chancellor is a political prodigy: not only because he is just 31, but because he is leading a mainstream conservative party into territory previously dominated by the far-Right.
Exit polls say his People’s Party has emerged as the clear winner and will probably form a new coalition with the populist Freedom Party and its leader Heinz-Christian Strache, whom Mr Kurz has deftly outflanked. Still, this means that Austrians have elected their most Right-wing government since Hitler’s Anschluss in 1938

Living with the fear of being excommunicated from Hollywood's church of tolerance.’

The LA Times recently interviewed an actor it described as ‘a conservative but not a Trump supporter’ who said he didn’t want to be identified ‘for fear of professional repercussions’. He told the paper: ‘In 30 years of showbusiness, I’ve never seen it like this. If you are even lukewarm to Republicans, you are excommunicated from the church of tolerance.’
