At last; right wing bias declared official by government. Will there be grants ?

I was amused to come down this morning and find my ten-year-old son sat glued to the wrestling on cable TV. My wife was less amused, and my argument that it was the natural occupation of healthy young boys to be interested in wrestling did not appeal to her French sensibilities.

Yet this evening, she called him down (as part of her efforts to culturally appropriate him) to watch Miss France and ogle beautiful girls in swimsuits, which of course these days is tantamount to sexual assault mixed with child abuse.

Incidentally, the girls were spectacularly beautiful with incredibly toned figures – something unlikely to be seen nowadays on the equivalent Miss Great Britain, for which we have McDonald’s to thank, though admittedly it was banned from television years ago as sexist – and the red thigh boots were a nice touch. 

Yet wrestling used to be a staple of mainstream television sporting schedules. Big Daddy (fans included Margaret Thatcher and the Queen) and Giant Haystacks were the star turns, the crowd booing Giant Haystacks and cheering Big Daddy, women seated in the front row, knitting like the tricoteuse at the guillotine, egging them on and screaming for blood – and it was all great fun.

All pantomime of course, except on the one occasion that the two charged at each other and the referee got caught in the middle, crushed, and had to be carried off on a stretcher. Boxing was big too and we all stayed up late to watch the British contender fight for the world title – John Conteh, Alan Minter, Charlie Magri, and even Joe Bugner come to mind. And, of course, there was Muhammad Ali. Then there were the beauty contests, hosted by smooth presenters dressed in velvet jackets, with girls competing to wear the most revealing clothes. 

These were one’s formative experiences, and like so much of our shared cultural heritage, now lost to the brave new world of unisex, multi-culture, and protected minorities. Speaking of which, Liz Truss, the ‘Women and Equalities minister’ (our next woman prime minister) played a blinder the other day with her announcement that equalities policy will be reset to move away from ‘fashionable’ race, sexuality, and gender identity issues and towards an approach based on ‘freedom, choice, opportunity, and individual humanity and dignity’.

She castigated quotas, diversity targets, and unconscious bias training as ‘tools of the Left’ that were ‘ultimately destructive’, criticised the 2010 Equality Act’s ‘narrow focus on protected characteristics’, and argued that small groups of ‘self-selecting activists’ had hijacked the agenda. Apparently, the Cabinet Office ‘Equalities Hub’ will be moved from London to the North – hopefully to a disused oil platform in the North Sea.

The logical next step would be to abolish the post of Women and Equalities minister. Then we could reinstate Miss GB (beautiful biological women only); aggressive biological men could beat each other to a pulp in the ring; and more ambiguous men could dress up as women and say ‘Ooh … you are awful’.  But we must take things one step at a time.

Anyway, well done, Liz! You have given us a glimmer of hope in these dark days.

  1. To Harry Black:

    I apologise for lacking “capacities in the realms of logic and empiricism.”

    I’m puzzled as to why you felt the need to make the distinction of underprivileged white “heterosexual” males. You say that noticing underprivilege for that group doesn’t preclude noticing it for homosexual males (presumably the bisexual ones don’t get a look-in, either). A lot of those men might enjoy same-sex relationships but label themselves as “straight” – it isn’t black and white.

    Surely someone’s sexual activities and desires are their own private business. And you are making a big assumption about underprivileged white men, as a lot of them will be gay. Culturally, a white working class gay man could have a lot more in common with a white working class straight man than they would with a gay ethnic minority man.

    “Seems you missed the exercises in the classroom and the discussions in the schoolyard whereby one develops one’s abilities to analyse matters beyond one’s naive and untested thoughts about things.”
    I’m afraid that they didn’t teach such things at my comprehensive, but I can assure you that you will have a more fruitful discussion on this matter than you would have with my peers. Whites were a minority at my school.

    “Or perhaps you are just trying to rev us up.”
    I merely wanted to challenge your pigeonholing of white underprivileged men as “heterosexual”. There is an ongoing debate about the disadvantages faced by white working class boys, covered recently in The Spectator. But it doesn’t label their sexuality.

    Good wishes, Harry.

    • David Goldstein, I find myself under no compulsion not to focus my concerns on the challenges facing young heterosexual males.

      By this, I intend no disrespect to, nor constraint upon non-heterosexuals or non-binaries, despite what is demanded by the special sensitivities of contemporary woke-ism.

      I have known, and know now, non-heterosexuals and non-binaries who regard their condition/status as so important as to require heterosexuals to pay special regard to their emotional needs, while pretending that they (the non-heteros/non-binaries) do not require special regard.

      Modern times , I know.

      Let us note that while many non-heterosexuals and many non-binaries make excellent and significant contributions to the wider community, medical science -as funded by nett tax-payers, the majority of whom are heterosexuals- is yet to fully replace heterosexuality as the main vehicle for the continuation of human reproduction.

      Fact is, and I say it with no disrespect, nor any denigration, nor any sense of superiority:

      As groups, non-heteros and non-binaries need heteros more than vice versa.

      And I say the following gently, with sincere wishes that you work to expand and strengthen your intellectual-emotional system:

      By your comments, and by application of my empirical abilities in the context of five-plus decades of hard work in catching my own projections and my own biases, while taking on board conceptual frameworks in several/many diverse fields of scholarship and practical action, I am confident that you are relatively unaware of the ways and the degrees to which you want others to see and judge things through the lenses of your own private/personal/special interests, and regard it as illegitimate and wrong when they do not.

      Please take this comment as I intend it: To be of constructive assistance as you proceed to deal with the complexities, ambiguities and conflicts of Life-on-Earth.

      BTW, I do not find The Spectator, in whole or in part, nor any mag, nor any guru of any kind, to offer universally reliable standards by which I should judge or alter my own ways of assessing any matter.

      Decades ago, there was a book titled something like “If You Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill Him”.

      The original Buddha is said to have said something similar, using different words.

      Moral: Work long and hard, unceasingly, to make yourself wise.

      All best, Harry.

      • Harry,

        It’s Daniel, not David.

        “As groups, non-heteros and non-binaries need heteros more than vice versa.”
        Well, I accept that to be the case from a reproductive point of view. Sex education in schools will ensure children are aware of how babies are born, too. If that isn’t prompting heterosexual relationships, I don’t know what is.

        “I am confident that you are relatively unaware of the ways and the degrees to which you want others to see and judge things through the lenses of your own private/personal/special interests, and regard it as illegitimate and wrong when they do not.”
        Could the same not be true of you? I merely found it odd for you to specify that it is “heterosexual” young white men who are disadvantaged. I see no reason to make this distinction based on sexuality. What about adding in “Christian” for good measure? It is surely human nature to hope that others will respect our personal needs and interests. I was, of course, being a little facetious by asking if young white homosexual males cannot be underprivileged, in response to your wish for “care and concern for underprivileged people -oh say young, white heterosexual males- right here at home”. It implies that there is a bias against all young white heterosexual males. As there is an ongoing debate acknowledging white working-class boys being left behind, I found the addition of sexuality an odd one. Perhaps you think that young white homosexual males enjoy considerable privileges.

        Thank you for your constructive assistance. I will be sure to keep learning.

        Yours,
        Daniel.

        • Daniel, my sincere apologies for making the error with your name.

          The rest of my comments stand.

          You seem to have a special need in this area that I will not pursue further.

          Sincerely, and all best, Harry.

          • Harry,

            We all have special needs, and it could be said that yours also falls into this category. But I’ll leave you to ponder that. I don’t think there is anything special about my observations (and I don’t think it is a “special need”). But thank you for your reply.

            Yours,
            Daniel

          • Hello Again Daniel,

            I will test this possibility with you:

            You seem to have a special need to be right about what you think is right-

            -and that, because you think you can detect a special need in me, that this puts your own view of things in an untouchable category.

            It’s similar to the thought that:

            “If I can see the imperfection in the Other, I am free to regard myself as just fine, if not actually superior to the Other.

            Just testing the possibility.

            I am in my eighth decade, and continue to work all over the world with many people in many walks and stations of life, on tasks of considerable complexity and ambiguity in which large amounts of money and livelihoods and lives can be at stake-

            -and as such, there is always great conflict among the participants over questions of what is significant, why we think we are dealing the real problem, what info can be accepted as valid, and all these sorts of things.

            In doing this work, with such high stakes, I have been required, time and again, to examine my own biases and special needs and throw ’em out window, as rendered necessary by the results of proper empiricism.

            And also, it has been my task, these many decades, to be aware of, to detect, to accommodate, or to otherwise deal with Others’ special biases, special needs, absence of knowledge, and inability to see the implications of their not knowing how their own thinking works, and the invalid conclusions they will draw as a result of all that.

            I wish you well Daniel, as you continue your explorations.

            Best, Harry.

  2. And what will the future bring?

    Some folk say:

    The most important aspects of the future cannot be foreseen by following or extrapolating trends.

    I wonder.

    Perhaps there are major surprises in store, but I foresee no reversals in these trends:

    1. Increasing rates of violence and other criminality that involve attacks on the lives and the property of the law-abiding folk -and no alteration in the application of the “law”, policing and sanctions against violent criminals that would reduce criminality.

    2. Increasing rates of illiteracy and numeracy, and further dumbing-down of “standards” of literacy and numeracy by the Education Commissars -all to make things fair and equitable, so they say.

    3. And with decreasing literacy and numeracy, the consequence of ever-decreasing capabilities to apprehend and deal constructively with Reality.

    3. Ever-increasing anti-Westernist “news” and opinion presented in the mainstream media.

    4. Increasing rates of elevation to positions of power of people with the correct non-white or anti-white Identity, and the general expansion of Identity rather than Capability as the criterion of suitability for office -in all institutions of the West, esp the Anglosphere.

    5. Ever-increasing infiltration of Western institutions, esp the Anglosphere, by agents of China’s political and business elites, by agents of several other Asian elites, by agents of various Islamic factions, and by agents of elites in black Africa.

    6. Ever-increasing censorship of the rising rates of various kinds of physical violence and other extreme criminality directed against whites by blacks, by Muslims from everywhere, and by a couple other non-white groups.

    7. Increasing rates of transfer of wealth produced by striving whites to low-/non-producing non-whites, as administered by the Big State that will continue to grow in size and power.

    Well, I am open to hearing views that the above trends might be reversed by as yet unknowable causal factors.

    And I am open to views that other, as yet unimaginable factors might pop up and increase the chances for a future peaceful social order in which whites can flourish in freedom, in a context of responsible, contributing citizenship.

    • To Harry Black, this is an excellent, accurate summary of our chief problems, aggravated by financial, moral, medical & ecological handicaps. They are mostly recognised by various websites and “right-wing” think-tanks, especially in the USA which still has sufficient freedom of speech. In the UK and EU we have to operate within legislation designed to curb oppositon, but the need for an international coalition and an organised base remains for development from the Trump constituency to Hungarian anti-immigration groups. There is a race between the hare of multi-racist progeny within western borders, probably a factor in the %age change poll support for immigration, and the tortoise of political pressure on still nominally white-majority parliaments.

      The Chinese danger is being recognised, some good articles in the “Daily Mail” which has MP support; also organisations like Defence UK.

      Some wiser individuals are well awake to woke – Douglas Murray, Rod Liddle, Toby Young, Richard Littlejohn, Brendan O’Neill. The problems facing Laurence Fox, who knows 90% of the danger, are those that faced Enoch Powell, Kilroy Silk & Tommy Robinson – especially a hostile media waiting for personal vanity-led pitfalls. Also, Jewish obsessions should be avoided.

      Minimal miscellaneous intellectual ammunition (for prudent use) : Edward Dutton, “Making Sense of Race” (2020); Arthur Kemp, “The War against Whites” (2020); Sean Gabb, “Cultural Revolution, Culture War” (2019 also online); Stephen Smith, “The Scramble for Europe” (2019); Renaud Camus, “You Will Not Replace Us!” (2018); Michael William, “The Genesis of Political Correctness” (2017); David Abbott, “Dark Albion” (2013); Ed West, “The Diversity Illusion” (2013); Marcus Willinger, “Generation Identity” (2013); Patrick Sookhdeo et al, “Fighting the Ideological War: Winning Strategies” (2012 ed); Niall Ferguson, “Civilization” (2012); Gavin Cooke, “Britain’s Great Immigration Disaster” (2012); David Conway, “A Nation of Immgrants?” (2007); Anthony Browne, “The Retreat of Reason” (2006); Robert Klark Graham, “The Future of Man” (1981); William McDougall, “Ethics & Some Modern World Problems” (1925 ed) [extraordinarily prophetic].

      Nil desperandum.

      • To David Ashton,

        Thank you for your note of support, and the other info -much appreciated.

        I am unaware of the work of William McDougall (1925) -and will look it up.

        All best, Harry.

  3. According to the BBC, “Ms [sic] Truss said: ‘To make our society more equal, we need the equality debate to be led by facts, not by fashion….'”

    If the goal remains the Socialist fantasy of “equality”, I’m not impressed by a change in the means used to achieve the goal.

    And if this woman wants to be considered a conservative, perhaps she could start by using a conservative form of her name, viz. Elizabeth O’Leary, on the analogy of Margaret Thatcher (not Maz Roberts) or Theresa May (not Tez Brasier).

  4. To Nick Hunt: Yes, the Conservative Party has maintained a statist welfare-socialism of sorts, and they have done little to prevent and nothing much as yet to reverse the woke tyranny. They remain soft on immigration. The “parliamentary system” is not fit for purpose, but this is a long-standing problem with the “Tories”, especially, dependent on sectional financial interests, “payola lobbies”, as indeed the old Communist Party and also the British Union of Fascists pointed out. The intrinsic problems of “democracy” were pointed out long ago by W. H. Mallock, Gustave LeBon, Robert Michels, H. L. Mencken and Carl Schmitt, and in the UK by lesser figures including David Runciman, George K, Young, Peter Oborne, George Walden & Peter Hitchens. An unconsidered and to some degree a taboo factor is declining intelligence along with educational misdirections.

    I don’t think Harry Black is pompous. He has a good grasp of most of what is wrong,

  5. At last, at last…the Equalities Act, which I have opposed as the chief problem in removing the woke pathocracy’s grip on the “White British” since its inception, is recognised for what it is.

    As for TV there are still plenty of hot babes – young, blonde and leggy. The real “sexism” problem is not only the cult of disability, ugliness and freakery, but the gross levels of BDSM, violence, torture porn and horror nihilism. “I Spit on Your Grave” is the woke view of England, my England that “The Guardian” tells us “never existed”.

  6. Liz Truss is emerging as a (relatively) fresh and appealing prospective leader for the Conservative Party. But let us never forget that she and all Conservatives belong body and soul to political Conservatism, which is right liberalism or economism before it is in any sense conservative. As such, they are wholly signed up to the millenarian technological futurism to which global corporate power cleaves. They have nothing … absolutely nothing … to put in place of the unversalism, immigrationism, anti-white nativism and the politics of anti-Nature which underpin the technological futurist ideology, and which Western governments are expected to deliver or lose all privileges (ie, party funding and future post-Westminster careers).

    Thirty years ago, at the beginning of the Thatcher era, I harboured hopes that political Conservatism might change history in an epochal sense. I thought that perhaps Maggie Thatcher did not really belong to the individualism and the neoliberal ideology she was ushering in, and that she had sufficient powellism and traditional conservatism in her to do the right and needed thing by the native British people. It was a bitter lesson to learn otherwise, and I am not going to make the same misjudgement of the lovely Liz now!

    • Yes GW, it will be more productive to halt harbouring hopes, and instead directly to direct one’s energies to generating resources, and creating organisational oomph, by which to save white/Western Civ.

      To mobilise key anti-Leftist forces, in all walks and all station of life, and to maintain them with the necessary resources and victuals, and to general them with all due purposeful and effective generalship-

      -that is, what is required to save the Good Folk- those Folk with the capabilities, attitudes, and the willingness, to devote their lives to the defence of Proper Western Civ.

      The parasites and rebels with and without causes will always be with us -just that we must reduce their numbers by orders of magnitude.

      Must be done:

      Ruthless reductions of the anti-white/greenist/anti-free enterprise Big Staters who favour global govt by the Chinese and/or the UN.

      Casualties must be accepted, I’m afraid, hard as that is.

      If no rise to the ramparts, and if no offensive flow to follow, then sure, we will have surrendered -if we admit it to ourselves or not.

      And we note that no non-European system of politics-economics-public admin-education/training-law has produced as much civil security, personal freedoms, material wealth and well-being for the non-productive classes in the West and non-West, ever, in all human history.

      The white West did it for 500 plus years -no thanks to any other precinct on Earth.

      And non-Westerners and anti-Westernists -of all colours, creeds, and degrees of parasitism- in the universities, in the school systems in the news/opinion media, in the civil services, and now also in business, are now well-advanced in pushing out non-elitist whites-

      -not only entirely out of the governing systems but also out of access to any public line of self-defence.

      And such is life eh.

      Or shall we fight, with the extreme ruthlessness required to save ourselves?

      • Of course it was 40 years ago when Maggie swept in to Downing Street – the flight of time never ceases to surprise!

        Yes, Harry, we have to create historical movement; it has to be broad-based. But there you and I part company somewhat. I do not believe that such it can simply be ordered up. Movement away and movement towards require, respectively, a critique of this benighted age, which critique has to account for all the pathologies which Time and the moral failings of men have delivered, AND a vision of the future grounded, for my money, in the human fundamental of a vivifying state of authentic being and belonging – an estate of conscious truth, therefore, and one of existential freedom.

        It has to be this way. There has to be revolutionary content, and that can only come via the constantly evolving and emerging understanding of our people’s natural politics of nation.

        • GW, I approach this challenging and centrally important project not as a matter of your and my “parting company”, even somewhat.

          Rather, I regard it more that you have hold of one part of the beast, and I another.

          I’ve been analysing the matter of political moves -the big-picture and the nuts-and-bolts of the tasks of implementation of measures to reduce/eliminate the power of our enemy-

          -an enemy that is a marxist-inspired/entirely-materially-motivated/anti-self-sufficiency/re-distributionist enemy.

          This enemy must be removed from their positions of overwhelming power-dominance within the Big State system comprising elective politics, the civil services, other various “government” agencies that use/abuse tax-payers’ funds in support of anti-white goals, the education systems, the news/opinion media, and the “law” industry.

          By contrast, I see you as defining/elaborating/explaining/describing the content-understanding that the good folk must hold in their heads and in their hearts by which to mobilise themselves toward the goal of freedom and rule by proper law. This content of understanding includes their living in a state of authentic being and belonging, of being in conscious pursuit of truth -and in all of that residing in freedom.

          And I think we will agree that “multiculturalism” of the varieties now being attempted in the West can only result in never-ending power-wars in the polity, and in casualties, as denizens of the non-white sub-cultures that are prone to violence, and to hatred of the host culture, and their envy of the possessions of whites, and their hatred of white-beingness, continue to bomb, skittle by truck, hack and mug, and demand vast transfers of power and wealth from whites to themselves, all the way across the land.

          Please alter the words I have used here -to better capture your intended statement of the matter, so to improve my comprehension.

          It could be that I will fully accept your views on these matters when I understand them more.

          I will just add at this point that I have been studying human psychology and sociology for these many decades now, researching in such fields modern and ancient, material and spiritual, West and East-

          -these matters along with how to mobilise, organise, resource, and general groups of people who can be encouraged to fight back against the marxist-inspired, deconstructionist, anti-white/anti-English forces.

          Note that I do see this as “ordering up” such forces -but rather it requires putting out the call, far and wide, for volunteers.

          Now, the call to the volunteers must include the Holy Grail, so to say.

          What is the Great Boon that, when described to the Good Folk, will have them volunteer for the Front -this is what you have been working on, I believe.

          And I surmise that I have ways different to yours of expressing/describing the Boon/Grail -and it is on that matter that I will explore further in your body of scholarship, to find new expressions, and perhaps to see how mine and yours have overlaps, using different words.

          And finally here, my working assumption is that to start, the volunteers will amount to fewer than 0.01% of the populace, and perhaps never grow from that.

          We seek The New Few.

          All best, Harry.

      • Stop pretending to be the bigoted, rabid right-winger of your delusional imagination, Harry the tr oll. Your sneering tone and ridiculous, pompous prose fool and persuade no-one possibly except yourself.

        • Gee thanks Nick.

          Yes, I will delve deeply into your deeply-considered response to me.

          Meanwhile, I will simply suggest that you man-up.

          And in that regard, perhaps consider the causes of your own sneering?

          Then go on, in efforts to see things in the full, while seeking to deal with troublesome, conflicting details, and bringing in the feminine (a word I use here in the mytho-poetic sense) care and concern for underprivileged people -oh say young, white heterosexual males- right here at home-

          -instead of Others far, far away, whose saving from terror could only occur in yer fantasies.

          All best to you Nick -Harry.

          • Daniel Goldstein, it appears you lack capacities in the realms of logic and empiricism.

            To notice underprivilege among young, white heterosexual males does not preclude noticing the same for young, white homosexuals males.

            Seems you missed the exercises in the classroom and the discussions in the schoolyard whereby one develops one’s abilities to analyse matters beyond one’s naive and untested thoughts about things.

            Or perhaps you are just trying to rev us up.

            Anyway, all best to you DG -Harry.

      • Nick is channeling talking points that assist the advance of anti-white-ism, whether he knows it or not.

        I have read other posts from Nick..

        -and conclude that he knows not of which he speaks, if he knows it or not.

        That is probably not a nett negative for the Western world, but it does remind us of the weakness in quality of what turns up in various opinion media, as expressed by persons who imagine they are helping to maintain Western Civ.

      • To Nick Hunt: Yes, the Conservative Party has maintained a statist welfare-socialism of sorts, and they have done little to prevent and nothing much as yet to reverse the woke tyranny.

        I don’t think Harry Black is pompous. He has a good grasp of most of what is wrong

    • Children in u.k. schools are not made aware of our heritage and manners.
      Maybe the teachers should be taught this first? Discipline might return to
      society if all children are taught who is in charge and even teachers will respect
      themselves. Immigrants may want a good English education for their children.
      They complain there are no English children in the classroom.

  7. Wrestling?

    The wonderfully choreographed humpin’ and thumpin’ and dancin’ and whackin’ and slammin’ variety, as seen on TV?

    Look, if white boys do not fight back -for real, ruthlessly, and for keeps- they will be enslaved.

    That is, enslaved in even more ways and to far greater degrees than they already are.

    Emasculation of white males -in intellectual, emotional, and physical terms- this is the goal and purpose of woke-ism, BLM-ism, deconstructivism, multiculturalism, the education dumb-down, the BBC and 90% of commercial media output, and almost all aspects of feminism-

    -all of which are marxist-inspired, and promulgated by parasitic, guilt-ridden, white, naive idealist ingrates of all genders, in all walks and stations of life.

    And it is working very well.

    Clever eh?

    Include in your power-grabbing ideology that resistance by white heterosexual males to their own enslavement and emasculation is simply a core aspect of the evil nature of white heterosexual males.

    Then there’s the problem that so many white heterosexual males buy this suicidal trash-

    -and/or just get drunk or drugged up on other drugs.
