Quote note (#163)

William M. Briggs on the morbid backdrop to Britain’s electoral circus (among many other things):

England … will soon have an election in which one of the candidates, Ed Miliband, promises that, if elected, he will make “Islamaphobia” a crime. Rather, an aggravated crime, a state of mortal secular sin. It is already a venal sin.

Now Islam is inimical to Western, in particular British, values. Which effectively means Miliband will make it illegal to uphold those values. No imam could do better.

Suicide is always an ugly thing to watch, no?

    Not only that, but the West grew because it was able to face terrifying truths where others backed away. Making any ideology or belief system entirely safe from criticism ensures that truths will not be faced. All you need to do to protect something is associate it with Islam and it is magically safe.

    “… the West grew because it was able to face terrifying truths where others backed away.”

    Did you have any particular contrasting examples in mind here? This sounds right to me in some ways but I’d like to concretize it, if possible.

    I just want to let you know I spent three hours today tabbing out a sax solo from Mario kart.

    I’m actually sad that Ed Millipede is likely to lose. Perhaps your accelerationism is rubbing off on me.

    I can say, that with a potential Labour/SNP coalition in mind, the dismantling of Britain’s nuclear deterrent would be geopolitically advantageous to Reactionary ends…

    […] Brigg’s asks How Come The Leftward, Lurching Drift? Neoreaction would add: Why is the drift so supremely well coordinated? And why does the pace of it increase? Moreover why is pointing out these transparently obvious facts prima facie grounds to be treated as if one is wearing a tin-foil hat? “Cthulu swims slowly, but he only swims left.” Also coverage of the Crisis: Vatican Burns with Global Warming Enthusiasm (And Temperature Fiddling). And This Week in Doom. Everyone’s favorite Drinker of Baby-Blood takes note. […]
