In my podcast this week, I’ve got comments on various kinds of lunacy going on (appointing illegal aliens to state policy-making boards in Gavin Newsom’s California, closing, and presumably emptying onto the streets, a prison in De Blasio’s New York) and general sense that the world is going nuts. But, trying to look on the... Read More

Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively on VDARE.com This comes to you from beneath the sign of Saturn. I am glum. It's nothing personal, thank God; I'm glum about the state of my country. Coming from the author of a book titled We Are Doomed, I guess that's not an astonishing thing to... Read More

Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively on VDARE.com Amy Wax, a law professor at the University of Pennsylvania, in trouble again—in a way that points to the fundamental contradictions of Yoram Hazony’s recent National Conservatism conference a.k.a. The Gatekeeper’s Ball. In March last year, Prof. Wax did a Bloggingheads interviews with black Economics... Read More

So I sit down after dinner to watch some political shows on TV. What are they talking about? The Mueller Report. Still talking about it, still getting heated about it. I get to thinking about the opportunity cost of all the anti-Trump passion that is still, after more than two years, roiling our national legislature.... Read More

See, earlier: Vance’s HILLBILLY ELEGY: A Dissent From Personal Experience, by Jim Goad When, in the Winter 1967 issue of Partisan Review, Susan Sontag told us that "The white race is the cancer of human history," she had lit such a candle as, it seems 52 years later, will never be put out. Anti-whiteness is... Read More

Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, availableexclusively on VDARE.com Sub-Saharan Africans, and their descendants in the New World, are a local variety of our species homo sapiens. That they present their own particular statistical profile on heritable characteristics—which includes traits of behavior, intelligence, and personality—is deeply unsurprising. So do dog breeds; and what artificial selection... Read More
Amy Wax, a tenured Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania is now being subjected to a SECOND Two Minutes Hate by our Emerging Totalitarian Left.

In open, civilized societies there is a tolerance for some level of disorder, as being the price citizens collectively pay for their liberties. But the key words in what I just said: “some level.” Today, in the year 2018, we are fifty years on from 1968, when public tolerance of disorder was tested to breaking... Read More

Last week, I ventured some remarks about the Justice Department case against Harvard University for discriminating against Asian Americans. This brought in a surprising number of emails. I’ll take just two main points: First main point raised by readers: Import an overclass? We already did that! Listeners who made this point were referring of course... Read More

Derb Williams College Talk Cancelled After Violence Threats –President Falk Caved!
Today’s Wall Street Journal carries an op-ed by Zachary Wood (above) the Williams College student who invited me to speak to his “Uncomfortable Learning” group last February. The invitation was rescinded by the college president, Adam Falk “in the best interests of students and our community.” You can read Wood’s op-ed at the Journal website... Read More

On Radio Derb recently I have been promoting a theme of “academic nationalism.” Higher education, I have argued, is a precious resource; and our own citizens should have first call on it. As I observed in the February 17th podcast: I enlarged on this theme March 17th, commenting on an article in The Economist’s bimonthly... Read More

Living as a white guy in America after having grown up elsewhere, I must say, I don’t see much ill-will towards blacks among my fellow whites. There are traces of it, I know; I read the comment threads. The vast majority of white Americans, however, wish no harm to blacks, nor any restriction of their... Read More

There have been some later developments in the storm-in-an-academic-teacup over Williams College President Adam Falk [Email him] canceling a talk I was invited to give to the “Uncomfortable Learning” student group. The National Association of Scholars
One of the great weasel words of our time is the word “troubling.” When a Social Justice Warrior tells you that such-and-such a thing is “troubling,” you’re meant to imagine him sitting there with furrowed brow, agonizing over the possibility that whatever it is might hurt the feelings of someone, somewhere. Given that hurt feelings... Read More
I am ill-read.
"Should I read Thomas Mann?" Miss Straggler wanted to know. She has enrolled in some sort of freshman Western Lit. course at college, and keeps coming up with these questions. What to say? I have never, to my knowledge, read a single word Thomas Mann ever wrote, though I did sit through that sappy Dirk... Read More
