Jordan Peterson on why Marxism is attractive despite history’s record [Video]

Jordan Peterson is an extremely astute political scientist. Here he discusses what the attraction of Marxism in the present day is: it is not what you might expect. In the past, Marxism had primarily economic appeal to those choosing it. A mixture of various tyrannical states, some capitalist, some allegedly power hungry in the same…

Reviving The Conservative Heart Of Organized Labor

It is no coincidence that what finally broke the Soviet Union was a Catholic trade union — a group of shipyard workers, led by an electrician and motivated by a faith that their oppressors deemed an opiate. Christianity and its sweeping social vision enlivened the workers in Gdansk and their entire nation and, a decade…

Most of us viewed this as a piece of “Russian sensationalism.” The general reaction was to…

How Modern Jihadism Became Co-Invented by the U.S. and Saudi Governments

Eric Zuesse, originally posted at Strategic Culture Modern jihadism was co-invented in 1979 by Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan al Saud, and U.S. National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, working together, and here is the background for it, and the way — and the reasons — that it was done: Back in the later Middle Ages,…

Stress Test of a Straining Superpower

Via Patrick J. Buchanan… How great a burden can even an unrivaled superpower carry before it buckles and breaks? We may be about to find out.

China’s Coronavirus Cover-Up Rips Pages From Soviet Chernobyl Playbook: Report

China’s repeated attempts to obscure the origins of the novel coronavirus have been a striking callback to the Soviet Union’s efforts to downplay the Chernobyl meltdown. In the immediate aftermath of Chernobyl, the Soviet Union kept the truth from even the residents they forced to evacuate — and many were told they’d be allowed to…

Orthodox Christianity versus Socialism, Part III – The history of conflict

In this section of our Orthodox Christianity versus Socialism series, we examine the historical nature of the conflict between these two religions – a conflict that is recent, and yet ignored by even some of the people that experienced it directly. And, yes, I called socialism a religion here. There is good reason to call…

Orthodox Christianity versus Socialism, Part I – all about stuff

In a newsfeed I receive from Ayatollah Khameini, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, I saw this interesting post. It would appear that the Ayatollah likes socialism. He presumed, amazingly, to offer some advice to Americans about their capitalist government: I guess the Grand Ayatollah is… a Bernie Sanders supporter? This should…
