    I always thought the “wretched refuse” line from “The New Colossus” was harsh enough. How to force Zeroth Ammendment freaks to linger over it?

    You’d think Steve’s Twitter account would get screwed with long before yours.

    If they disable Sailer’s account, the censorship would be too obvious, I suppose. They figured they could attack @Outsideness and have no one object because 1% of humanity at most can understand the content, but then were proven wrong because most of the 1% at this point seem to be on the Alt Right.

    I’m appalled … because we apparently don’t rate protesters for not being part of the 99%. 🙂

    Come to think of it, I’m surprised your account hasn’t been suspended either. Something to look forward to!

    It is time to do what the Left did: enforce our cultural revolution by systematically dismantling the symbols and customs of the old.

    Physical removal is the only option, not just of Leftists (helicopter rides… to Brazil) but of Leftism.

    GOTHIC SPECTATORS OF ALIEN CIVILITY

    The only problem is that you’re talking about yourselves, when you talk about the Goths.

    The ascribing of barbarity, is a peculiarly Occidental preoccupation, beset by the anxiety of prior influences, as all so-called Occidental ‘civilisations’ are. Such anxieties, are, of course, wholly unknown in the East: ‘civilisation’, being entirely a natural development, requiring no proofs.
    It is only when one crosses the Ganges, westward, that the spirit of unrest begins, and the flavour of a Mesopotamian sovereign harshness can be both felt and discerned. The inhabitants of these regions; conditioned as they are, by such ruling discomforts; neither feel, nor discern, the true essence of that which they label – very much as spectators rather than partakers – ‘civilisation’.

    “the anxiety of prior influences” – perhaps; it is written in the Timaeus:

    “Thereupon one of the [Egyptian] priests, who was of a very great age, said: O Solon, Solon, you Hellenes are never anything but children, and there is not an old man among you. Solon in return asked him what he meant. I mean to say, he replied, that in mind you are all young; there is no old opinion handed down among you by ancient tradition, nor any science which is hoary with age.”

    Supposedly Plato spent 13 years being educated in Egypt by Horites, who were “a caste of rulers who controlled the trade routes from the Sahara to India. Originally, they controlled the major waters systems at a time when the Sahara, Arabia and Mesopotamia were wetter”. So assuming goods likes curry AND ideas were being traded, the beginning of Western philosophy was indeed inflected by India to some degree. But do you really want to take credit for the radicalization of those ideas? India may be (part of) the root, but the Occident is the flower. I get the sense that you want to drive a lawnmower through our bed of roses.

    Ancient Egypt had a middling impact on Western civilization’s development. Sorry Afrocentrics.

    GOTHIC MILTARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX & ITS ‘FREE TRADE’ IDEOLOGY

    “Archaeology shows that the Visigoths, unlike the Ostrogoths, were predominantly farmers. They sowed wheat, barley, rye, flax. They also raised pigs, poultry, and goats. Horses and donkeys were raised as working animals, and fed with hay. Sheep were raised for their wool, which they fashioned into clothing. Archaeology indicates they were skilled potters and blacksmiths.

    [[ When peace treaties were negotiated with the Romans, the Goths demanded free trade. Imports from Rome included wine, and cooking-oil.”]] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goths#Economy

    “The Spanish and Swedish claims of Gothic origins led to a clash at the Council of Basel in 1434. Before the assembled cardinals and delegations could engage in theological discussion, they had to decide how to sit during the proceedings. The delegations from the more prominent nations argued that they should sit closest to the Pope, and there were also disputes over who was to have the finest chairs and who was to have their chairs on mats. In some cases, they compromised so that some would have half a chair leg on the rim of a mat. In this conflict, Nicolaus Ragvaldi, bishop of the Diocese of Växjö, claimed that the Swedes were the descendants of the great Goths, and that the people of Västergötland (Westrogothia in Latin) were the Visigoths and the people of Östergötland (Ostrogothia in Latin) were the Ostrogoths.

    [[The Spanish delegation retorted that it was only the lazy and unenterprising Goths who had remained in Sweden, whereas the heroic Goths had left Sweden, invaded the Roman empire and settled in Spain]]”
