From Orwell to Gladwell and Back


In the transnational socialists’ version of the near future, there will be only the ‘Net and its (eminently-changeable) version of history.

And the losers?

If they exist at all, it will be only as a hate object.

You come at the king, you’d best not miss.

  3. That’s why I have stacks of books and articles written on everything from religion, to the myth of global warming to books by economic giants like rothbard and Hazlitt(as long as book burning doesn’t come back in style)

    • Comrade Wrecker, we’ll be coming for your books as soon Commissar Hillary moves into her new office…..

  4. ALBERT HOSTEEN: There is an ancient Indian saying that something lives only as long as the last person who remembers it. My people have come to trust memory over history. Memory, like fire, is radiant and immutable while history serves only those who seek to control it, those who douse the flame of memory in order to put out the dangerous fire of truth. Beware these men for they are dangerous themselves and unwise. Their false history is written in the blood of those who might remember and of those who seek the truth.

    • Go to any patriot rally and you will see a sea of gray and balding folks. They remember what we have lost. They lived it. They built much of it.

      Back in 2010 I thought we would fight. In 2011 we lost our Bill of Rights. Surely we would fight! Nope, not a shot fired.

        And now you understand, comrade: who can stand against the New Soviet Man? Let us move boldly forward into the Glorious Future!

        We don’t even have to change the slogans from 70 years ago.

      • History will show the cops were the ultimate traitors to the country. If any one of them gave a fuck about anything except their paychecks, benefits, and their state sanctioned power to murder at will, they would side with decency. You want a fight? Start with those who enforce “the law”. Until you understand that it’s the cops who enthusiastically support evil and corruption instead of justice and freedom… STFU.
