Right-o, George. Criminals should be (humanely) locked up in prisons away from law-abiding citizens. Mad people should be (humanely) locked up in asylums away from normal people. Homeless people should not be allowed to camp in public places. If mad, as is commonly the case, they should be locked up in asylums; if sane, they... Read More
Yes, April — Spring! Taking Basil for his walk one pleasant, warm morning in mid-April, I had a Wordsworth moment. It wasn't actually daffodils, it was buttercups: a lo-o-ong row of them on an otherwise nondescript roadside verge. In fact the "I" there should really be "we": Basil was entranced, too. Now oft when on... Read More
Earlier (2014) John Derbyshire Asks: Endemic Corruption—The Ukraine Is Ex-Soviet, But What Excuse Do Black American Politicians Have? One of the first things I had to say about the Russia-Ukraine war, back in February when it had just broken out, was that it is the first of any significance to be fought in demographic modernity,...

Was there ever a nation as lawyered-up as America? I was just reading this article about our infrastructure; you know, that stuff for the improvement of which the Biden administration tells us they are going to do great things.

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Here is an email I got from a reader. I'll give it to you straight: Now there's food for thought. To start where my reader ends: Shall we have to choose between the two soon, or ever? That I doubt. We're heading to a... Read More
Beauty pageants are always worth a look. They had one in Ireland last week. The winner, the new Miss Ireland, was 26-year-old Pamela Uba, and a bonny colleen she is. Another thing she is, is … black. Ms. Uba immigrated from South Africa at age seven. Now she is the very first black Miss Ireland,... Read More
Earlier, by Peter Brimelow: DUNKIRK: “People Should Be Hung From Lampposts, They Should Be Burned Alive, For What They’ve Done To Britain” Last week saw the publication in Britain of a report from something called the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities. This commission was set up last year by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson,... Read More

[Excerpted from the latest Radio Derb, now available exclusively through VDARE.com] Earlier, by Ann Coulter: Mass Incarceration Saved Black America This headline from The Spectator, August 29th, naturally caught my eye: If anything, America has an under-incarceration problem. The byline is Pedro L. Gonzalez, a name not otherwise known to me. [VDARE.com Note: Read Pedro... Read More

• Monday, September 9th: Leaving New York. We fly Air China from New York to Peking, a single 13½-hour flight. There is no way an economy-class flight that long can be enjoyable, but Air China don't do anything to make it wor

The precise action I was stirred to was, I used the Canon for sign-off music in my August 23rd podcast.... Read More
