In recent years, the difference between the United States of America and the “authoritarian” governments of China and Russia has shrunk. Powerful institutions on both “Left” and “Right,” from unions and NGOs to big business, worked very hard to sway the last election. Even if it wasn’t outright fraud, it is hard to say it was free and fair. A Time magazine article called the massive manipulation an effort in “fortifying” democracy, a phrase that most journalists would mock if it came from Vladimir Putin.

Many journalists, “human rights groups,” and even corporations seem to see their job not as providing information or services but policing what people are allowed to say, buy, or support. This is not the “marketplace of ideas” of the classical liberal imagination.

Many Americans are worried. The hostility towards the historic American nation by well-funded movements such as Black Lives Matter, the anti-white indoctrination in the military, and a vast system of racial preferences have left many white Americans feeling lost. They don’t recognize their country. It can be argued that they don’t have a country.

The American conservative movement, organized to fight the Cold War against the Soviet Union, is doing almost nothing to resist America’s decline into a failed and increasingly arbitrary Third World country. The main threats to Americans’ life, liberty, and property come from Washington, New York, and Los Angeles, not Tehran, Moscow, or Beijing. National Review doesn’t understand that.

For example, this is from one of several articles about Cuba:

It’s a cautionary tale, as we once again “bear witness,” to the inspiring protests in Cuba against that tyrannical regime. In response, the communist government is detaining dissidents and shutting off communications. A country with an estimated 130 or so political prisoners won’t hesitate to lock up a few more.

I’m far more concerned about what is happening to Americans who were arrested for taking part in the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill. There are allegations of solitary confinement and beatings by guards. After the federal government’s near indifference to the reign of terror that antifa and Black Lives Matter inflicted on American cities last summer, does National Review really believe America is an exemplar of impartial justice compared to Cuba?

Another example: American universities spread poisonous ideas, but National Review is worried about Turkey and Iran spreading “Islamism” in the West. It seems to be worried that this will discredit Israel — though this seems like a strange priority for what is ostensibly an American magazine. There is a far simpler solution to the spread of “Islamism”: Stop importing the people — Muslims — who are susceptible to it.

National Review has a bizarre fixation on Russia. Russia may be the only country that issued a statement defending the human rights of the Capital rioters. This means Vladimir Putin has done more than National Review to defend these Americans. Meanwhile, the magazine criticizes President Biden for not being tough enough on Russia.

Russia is not a dictatorship without opposition. It is easy to find criticism of President Putin in the Russian press. His party occasionally suffers political defeats. The political system is clearly biased in his favor, but if that’s enough to mean Russia isn’t a “free” country, we can’t say America is free either.

The greatest threat to the American way of life don’t come from abroad; they come from within. America is not a landmass, a government, or a list of liberal abstractions that aren’t respected by the law anyway. America is the nation, especially the white majority that built and sustains the country. That ethnic core is being replaced and those doing it are not shy about saying so.

At least some in the American military support Critical Race Theory. Patriots are not welcome, which may be best, since the military does not seem to defend American national interests. Major companies fund Black Lives Matter and support leftist propaganda. When Amazon founder Jeff Bezos returned from space, National Review ran several articles celebrating his vanity trip. Mr. Bezos did not thank the magazine. Instead, he gave \$100 million to Van Jones, a left wing activist once considered too extreme for the Obama Administration.

National Review does occasionally criticize Critical Race Theory. Rich Lowry dismantles Ibram Kendi’s “anti-racism” in a recent article, calling it “sloppy, tendentious” and “stupidly reductive.” But is it meaningful opposition? National Review also has a remarkable article calling for a stronger stand against China on the grounds that it is not anti-racist enough. It agrees that America was built by settler colonialism and is, at some level, illegitimate. Author Kelley Currie, a former deputy to neoconservative Nikki Haley, criticizes China for seizing on the issue of bodies of American Indians recently unearthed at Canadian schools. However, she does not explain why those schools were set up. She simply accuses the Chinese of hypocrisy:

The disturbing truth is that the Chinese Communist Party does not fundamentally object to the policies that led to the abuses at the residential schools. Their own policies in Xinjiang and Tibet violate the rights of minorities and are rooted in an imperative to imprint Han Chinese culture onto resistant ethnic nationalities. Just as the stated objective of the residential schools in Canada — as well as that of counterparts in the United States and Australia — was to “civilize” native peoples and help them conform to the dominant culture, so too have the CCP’s “modernization” and “poverty alleviation” efforts in Tibetan, Uyghur, and other minority areas sought to fundamentally alter the local culture in the name of Han-defined progress.

Essentially, she is angry because the Han Chinese government is acting in defense of Han Chinese. She goes further: “If some elements of this dynamic sound familiar to Americans, they should. Many of the same 18th- and 19th-century settler-colonial dynamics of America’s westward expansion have been at work in the PRC from Day One.”

The title of the article is “A China for the Han.” Apparently, this is taken to be obviously bad, because it means that the smaller nations within the Chinese empire lack self-determination. However, such self-determination would require bans on Han Chinese migration and a certain amount of government effort to preserve political and cultural autonomy. If the alternative to a “China for the Han” is a “Tibet for the Tibetans,” it would require nationalist policies that recognize ethnic and cultural differences.

However, Miss Currie doesn’t seem to oppose a China for the Han as much as an America for the Americans.

Which brings us back to the bizarre, tone-deaf spectacle of Chinese officials gloating about the tragic deaths of First Nations children in Canada. As mentioned, we know about these atrocities in Canada because there is an official ongoing effort to investigate them. There are similar challenges in the United States and Australia. Most Americans are conscious of the debt we owe to the original inhabitants of our nation, and how we can never really hope to repay it. That does not stop us from trying, and from having open, often difficult, dialogues [emphasis added] on these subjects. We learn about these issues in school, through popular culture, and in our policy-making spaces. Our democratic institutions are working to both protect the rights of indigenous peoples and establish some measure of restorative justice. As with the efforts to deal with our country’s birth defect of slavery, redressing the wrongs committed against Native Americans has been a difficult process of reckoning, recognition, and reconciliation that likely will continue as long as our nation does. But we continue to confront it openly and transparently, making progress a part of our efforts to form a more perfect union.

This is, of course, a near perfect summary of the leftist project of national deconstruction. And we don’t have “open, difficult dialogues” at all, because corporations and universities censor all but neutered whites. Furthermore, this degrading process is not creating a “more perfect union.” Even if the intent really is to promote healing or unity, it is failing. A new Gallup poll finds that Americans say race relations are at their lowest point in two decades. This “racial reckoning” is tearing the country apart.

Perhaps the Chinese government’s policies are unnecessarily brutal. However, Miss Currie seems to think America’s history isn’t much different. This is a strange position for a supposed conservative. She turns confrontation with China into penance for our own history.

Miss Currie says: “[T]he United States and other democracies must find ways to positively contrast how our open, democratic societies are dealing with the legacies of colonialism, racism, and other social and political challenges, with China’s authoritarian approach of denial and repression.”

Does she not realize that our government, schools, and corporations promote an anti-white ideology? Chinese may have more freedom than we do to talk about race, nation, family, or morality. The government will treat you harshly if you criticize the Communist Party, but it’s relatively easy to avoid that. It’s much harder to navigate the ever-changing cultural mandates in modern America. In China, I may pay a price if I say Taiwan is an independent country. In America, I may pay a price if I insist that we enforce our immigration laws or say that drag queens shouldn’t be teaching schoolchildren. Theoretically, we have freedom of speech. In practice, we have deplatforming, job loss, biased law enforcement, and even physical attacks.

The two Social Credit systems grow more alike every day, with the difference that the American system works through what are nominally private companies. In fact, social media companies don’t act fully independently of the government. The Biden Administration pressures them to take down content it doesn’t like. The trend is for the state, left-wing activist groups, and corporations to work more closely together. It is hard to take the claim seriously that these are just “private companies.”

“Ultimately, China cannot escape the costs of racism and repression any more than any other country,” Miss Corrie concludes. China can, and very easily. “Racism” is an invented charge, and the Chinese won’t be morally crippled by it. Their people may face “repression,” but so do Americans, and that is what conservatives should worry about.

We expect conservatives to defend their own people. Instead, National Review, American conservatism’s leading voice, tells them to oppose foreigners on the grounds that they are insufficiently anti-racist and multicultural. It’s hard to imagine something more opposed to authentic conservatism than an international crusade for anti-racism. The real threats to our liberty are at home, not abroad. Conservatives, who should be fighting those threats, want to infect the whole world with them.

    I’ve been thinking on hidden global symmetry lately.

    For example, when Japan stopped, peaking for one last circa 1997, this is when the West also peaked. Only the West could camouflage the stagnation through aggressive importation of immigrants, brain draining the rest of the world, and dollar printer goes brrrr.

    But the underlying dynamic was similar. Simply in Japan it was highly visible, while in America or England hidden under layers of imported third worlders and banking shenanigans.

    Likewise when Putin came to power and begun tightening the screws. At the same time first an election got decided though backdoor handshakes in the US, and then the 9/11 coup happened, after which a whole bunch of freedoms were taken away “just for a little time until we catch a bunch of bearded bombers”. Of course, the “just a little time” became “forever” and then “this was just the start”.

    Thus the stagnation of the “Asian tigers” was visible, while the stagnation of the “Western hegemons” was hidden, but both happened at the same time.

    Likewise Russia’s shift to post-democracy was visible, while America’s, Britain’s, France’s etc was hidden in a cloud of noisy b.s., but also happened at the same time.

    Nearer to out time, when Xi and Putin both did away with the time limits to their rule, in the West globohomo also was doing the same, with Trump being an unexpected quirk which they quickly enough fixed. Same with the EU’s drift to a technocracy accelerating at that time.

  2. I read National Review daily and I’m a subscriber. Nonetheless, at least to some extent I appreciate Mr. Hood’s critique. I find National Review oddly indifferent to the fate of white people and reluctant to name blacks when they deserve naming.

    The question is: who is the intended audience for this? It’s a projected image for internal consumption. The US+(whatever the current count of eyes is) is totally not the bad guy.

  6. The GOP/Conservatives are quite fine operating as the controlled lovable loser opposition party. They get to complain and promise change once they win the next election. Then, either (a) they don’t win and get to keep campaigning and fundraising or (b) win and allow the other side to gridlock all progress until (c) lose the next election.

    Rinse and repeat. That’s the modern GOP in a nutshell. They don’t stand up for whites because they have no reason to.

  7. In recent years, the difference between the United States of America and the “authoritarian” governments of China and Russia has shrunk.

    Putin as a whole seems reasonable and smart. Western politicians seem to be the product of focus groups tested on average intelligence plebeians.

    Exactly. Putin and Xi might be autocratic, but, they seem to be more concerned about developing or strengthening their own countries than with globalism, and they have some level of actual popularity. Is there any (non-nationalist) leader in the West who is even slightly popular? Macron? Draghi? Biden??? These are all basically unelected (or fraudulently elected) autocrats, Soviet-style.

    Also, I don’t get why anyone would read National Review or The Economist today. They are obviously Globalist rags. There’s nothing “conservative” or traditionalist about them. They don’t even have good texts about art or culture anymore, as they used to 20 or 30 years ago. They are trash.

  9. The official narrative is that North American Indians crossed a land bridge at the height of the Ice Age to populate North America. Seems to me, that is colonialism. At least a dozen tribes have oral histories of encountering giants, who were hostile to them, when they arrived in areas of the continent, so the colonizing Indians killed them. Graves and burial mounds are found the length of the Mississippi Valley and in several Eastern states. Seems to me, that would be genocide, since these people no linger exist.
    As for the Canadian Residential Schools, to borrow a phrase from Peter Strzok, there is no there, there. In the 1990s, the Ontario Provincial Police conducted an extensive investigation into abuse claims at one school. Of the 7 people charged, one was an older student, 3 were in support jobs such as the kitchen, and the 3 nuns that were charged were all Indians. The furor in Kamloops was about a school within the city limits that was located next to a hospital. Of course no one would have seen freshly dug graves. There is no doubt that individuals, have committed crimes against the new found victim groups. That happens to the non-victim groups as well.

    Well, NR is okay with US for the Zion.

    Things are the way they are because everything in the US is calibrated in accordance to “Is it good for Jewish Supremacism?”

    I suspect he’s mum on this matter because he writes for Jared Taylor who is hopelessly cucked on the issue.

    PS. US bitching about China in Tibet and Uighurland makes me laugh. All of US was founded on massive ‘genocide’ of the natives. US took SW from Mexico. US killed millions in Asia and Middle East in imperialist wars. US aided the Japanese imperialism against China… until Japan got too powerful.
    US policy replaced the native Hawaiians with whites and Asians who became ‘New Hawaiians’.

    US totally aids and abets the Great Replacement of Palestinians.

    US is full of shit.

    I believe that — as with the rest of the media — Jews now own/heavily manage the National Review. Of course, it has articles that favor Israel and other Jewish causes. Jews like multiculturalism because it masks their own clannishness and disloyalty. Jews hate Israel’s enemies (Syria & Iran). Jews especially hate Caucasian patriots who want the Israeli occupation of the media and Washington D.C. ended.

    Well, the “evil commie” also imprint Angol culture onto all Chinese too, including Han and all minorities.

    Students across China are mandatory learning not only Mandarin, but English as well. For 99% of the Chinese people, neither Mandarin nor English is our mother tongue.

    If the Chinese government really was acting in defense of Han Chinese culture, it should immediately ban all Christianity ativities in China. Christianity is not Chinese culture.

    Conservative INC was created by neoconservatives, which of course were war loving Trotskyists who dumped the Democrats over their opposition to Vietnam. National Review was always their flagship publication.

  15. Most conservatives (not all) are infantile, just like liberals. They are too cowardly to resist trannies, homosexuals, and black militants, so they vent their wrath on foreign nations that mean them no harm. They withdraw into dream worlds where the USSR still lives, and Israel is the Little Nation That Could.

    China’s leaders constantly assert that they mean no harm to the West. The Chinese just want to be treated as equals, so that everyone prospers. But conservatives reject this. Conservatives don’t dare question the war on white heterosexuals, but they can vilify the Chinks and Ruskies.

    Most conservatives (not all) are mirror images of most liberals. Selfish childish, and conceited.

    Pathetic.

They support black supremacy because blacks being in charge would make the US into a hellish shithole, not despite of it. They support sodomite supremacy because homosexuality, defined by ejaculating the seed of life into another man’s feces, is Satanic, not despite of it. Jews orchestrate all that, but their hatred for the goyim is such that they go far beyond what they should do if the goal were merely to empower and enrich themselves.

    The whole problem for the West is that it’s right wing is not right winged enough or it’s right winged parties are fake oppositions who really do not give any serious resistance to slow Zio- Globalist Communist NWO. The West needs to come out and accept White race combined with traditional Western culture as the defining feature of the West. The true resistance to the Satanic Zio-globalist Marxist Borg are far right movements of the West. That is why they are the most relentlessly attacked and filled with FBI agents to take them astray. The true nationalists in Britain, the most sensible party are the BNP or the British Nationalist Party, not even the EDL (English Defense League), but the BNP. EDL is second best option. No wonder the Zio Globalist Media Corps relentlessly attack the BNP far more than even the EDL though Tommy Robinson is attacked too. If the Universe would be a sane and righteous place, the BNP would be ruling the United Kingdoms while the EDL would be the main opposition party. Communist Globalist NWO Labour, Conservatives and Liberal Democrats would have zero seats in Parliament.
    The problem with the West is that it’s right wing is too liberal, indeed the mainstream right winged Conservative Party of Britain have descended from the earlier liberal Whigs.

    The liberals of India are far more race conscious and nationalist than the mainstream Right of the West!!! Yet they are not Nationalist enough for the Right Winged Nationalist masses, and many a times seen as traitors, the bench mark for Nationalism is way higher in India which helps ensure the nations’s survival. Hell the Communists in Russia are more right winged and Nationalist than the mainstream Right in the West, a consequence of the Social Realism, conservative Nationalist trajectory the Warsaw Pact countries including the USSR started taking after WW2.

    Add to that, part of the West’s right wing has turned Neo-Con (run by ex-Trotsyite Marxists) and it along with Christian Zionist has put the mainstream Right at the service of Israel. The Christian churches (Catholic, Protestant, Mormons) have veered or are moving towards either towards shitty Marxism or shitty Zionism. Chose your pick in between two shitty Satanic NWO options. The Paleo-Cons before them Neo-Cons were themselves not up to the task of really fighting the Marxists like the Hindutvas in India have done. That is because the Hindutvas are equally thuggish like the Marxists and use all the dirty tricks, the Marxists use, such as the march through the institutions and street marches.

    The Mainstream Left in the West has changed too, for the worse. They call themselves Liberals but they are not Liberals anymore but full blown Globalist Marxists. The old, Union worker side of the left has been discarded and the movement has become more Champaign Marxists who are obsessed with Race rather than Class. This bunch are also obsessed with destruction of Western Civilization as well as the White race than care about worker’s rights. The White Working Class has been thrown under the bus for immigrants and non-Whites. The Marxists are obsessed about coming to power and they have a lot of support from the Zio-banking elites.

    The deep states of the West are themselves Satanic Zio-Globalist Marxists and until they are dismantled, nothing can be achieved. Until the media is captured, nothing can be achieved. As Che/ Castor etc… have shown it is not righteousness and logic which wins but propaganda. The ability to put out your message and drown out the message of the opposition as well as play to human emotions. The Marxists had a better understanding of human nature than the Nationalists.

    US aided the Japanese imperialism against China… until Japan got too powerful.

    Not true at all. The USA was anti-Japan the moment the Russian Revolution took place. Japan’s work was done, Jacob Schiff’s work was fdoen when the Tzar’s family was assassinated.

    From the Book: America Has no Enemies in Asia written in 1938
    https://digitalrepository.trincoll.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1047&context=moore

    “The Soviet Union has long sought control of China. It has backed the Communist faction within China. Japan opposes the prospect of a red China. This makes Japan an enemy of the Soviet Union.’ The Soviet Union wants American aid against Japan. This partly explains why reds were eager to see conflict between China and Japan. Such a war, it was hoped, would ally America and Moscow. Warrant for this statement may be found in writings of bolshevik leaders, too lengthy to quote here.”

    …snip….
    “In 1904-05 US papers lavishly favored Japan. Many Americans didn’t know then that such press praise for Japan was partly stirred by organized forces here working for revolution Russia. Above item appeared 12 years later, in 1917. Backing Japan to defeat the Czar from without aided revolutionaries seeking his overthrow from within. Such facts show how newspaper campaigns of hate or praise may be influenced by interests not suspected at the time. U. S. papers on the whole favored Japan as long as Japan opposed Czarist Russia, but turned anti-Japanese after 1917 when Japan became a potential enemy of revolutionary Russia.””
    ——————-
    Also, US President FD Roosevelt worked for the China Zhi Gong Party in the USA as their lawyer at the very beginning of his career. And China Zhi Gong Party became one of the eight legally recognized minor political parties under the Chinese Communist Party since 1949.

    US took SW from Mexico

    The United States paid Mexico \$15 million in those days dollars, for the land which became known as the Mexican Cession.
    Pío Pico (Pío de Jesús Pico IV) , the the last governor of Alta California (Mexican California), vehemently opposed American annexation, he even supported California joining the British Empire rather than ever becoming a part of the United States.
    In 1844 he was chosen as a leader of the California Assembly. In 1845, he was again appointed governor, succeeding the unpopular Manuel Micheltorena. This occurred because, in late 1844, the Mexican province of California staged a revolt against the mother country. Micheltorena had been sent to California from Mexico, along with an army that had been recruited out of Mexico’s worst jails. He had no money to feed his army, which then spread out to people’s homes and farms “like a plague of locusts, stripping the countryside bare.” This enraged the Californians and led to widespread hatred of Micheltorena. Women were not considered safe from the depredations of Micheltorena’s army.

    Juan Bautista Alvarado, the governor who had been forcibly replaced by Micheltorena, organized a rebellion against Micheltorena. Upon learning of the impending revolt, Micheltorena appointed John Sutter to lead troops in opposition. Sutter came to John Marsh, who had one of the largest ranchos in California, hoping he would join. Marsh wanted no part of it, but Sutter forced him to join his army against his will. The two forces met in Cahuenga Pass, near Los Angeles, and fought the Battle of Providencia (also known as the Second Battle of Cahuenga Pass), which consisted primarily of an artillery duel. On the long march to the battle Marsh had taken every opportunity to dissuade the other soldiers from Micheltorena’s cause. Ignoring Sutter, Marsh seized an opportunity in the battle to signal the other side for a parley. Many of the soldiers on each side were immigrants from the United States. Marsh convinced them that they had no reason to be fighting each other. At Marsh’s urging, these soldiers on both sides united, abandoned Micheltorena’s cause, and even captured Sutter. Micheltorena was defeated, and California-born Pio Pico was returned to the governorship. Pico made Los Angeles the province’s capital. In the year leading up to the Mexican–American War, Governor Pico was outspoken in favor of California’s becoming a British Protectorate rather than a U.S. territory. By the time the proposal reached London, though, Sir Robert Peel’s Tory government, with its Little England policy, had come to power and rejected the proposal as expensive and a potential source of conflict. During the late 18th and 19th centuries,this Little England policy was followed by members of the Liberal Party who was opposed to expansion of the British Empire, as well as many traditionalist conservatives who wanted England to extend no farther than the borders of the United Kingdom. The term was also used for English people who saw the British Empire’s colonies as economically burdensome and wanted them to be granted independence as quickly as possible.

  33. “It seems to be worried that this will discredit Israel — though this seems like a strange priority for what is ostensibly an American magazine.”

    The National Review is a neocon rag and anyone who starts off this article on the standpoint that it is a conservative organ that has gone astray is seriously deluded. The neocon love affair with the zionazi pseudostate is so undeniable that nobody should be surprised that a neocon rag says whatever the zionazis want it to.

    A bit more fitting would be criticism of The American Conservative, which, on the face of it, is a relatively sane palæocon outlet, which loudly preaches “free speech”. However, what it will absolutely not tolerate is criticism of the zionist entity. For instance, when its boss Rod Dreher wrote an article excoriating the Pegasus spyware that the zios created and let loose on the world, he managed to write the entire story without one direct mention of the zionist settler colony. The one passing reference was a quote from another article mentioning “the Israeli firm NSO”, that’s it.

    In response I wrote this comment:

    “Can we now expect demands for action against the (uncriticisable and unnamable) “nation” that created and exported this software? If it had been Russia or China, can you imagine the outraged shrieking and calls for war?”

    The official narrative is that North American Indians crossed a land bridge at the height of the Ice Age to populate North America. Seems to me, that is colonialism. At least a dozen tribes have oral histories of encountering giants, who were hostile to them, when they arrived in areas of the continent, so the colonizing Indians killed them. Graves and burial mounds are found the length of the Mississippi Valley and in several Eastern states. Seems to me, that would be genocide, since these people no linger exist.

Trump was just a moderate republican with common sense ideas about illegal immigration. He was far from a conservative. Even Reagan was only a centtist. He continued affirmative action, raised spending and granted amnesty to illegal aliens. The last conservative Republican president was Coolidge, Goldwater probably the last conservative candidate for president.

    One of the most astonishing ironies of WWII is that FDR simply handed Manchuria on demand to Stalin at the Yalta conference in 1945, which the Soviet dictator used as the beachhead to launch the Chinese communist revolution. But four years earlier, moderates in the Japanese government presented sweeping concessions to US demands, offering to remove forces from China under US supervision, keeping only Manchuria (not a part of China proper) where Japanese businesses had heavily invested in manufacturing facilities and infrastructure improvements. FDR ignored the offer, instead replying with the final insult that made war inevitable, embargoing Japan’s vital oil supply.

    Going back a little further, in 1905 President Theodore Roosevelt essentially gave Korea to Japan in the Taft–Katsura agreement. The supposed rationale was that a Japanese “protectorate” over the country would have a stabilizing influence in Asia, but in fact it was a quid pro quo between the two aspiring empires for accepting a powerful US military presence on Japan’s doorstep, the Philippine Islands. The subsequent Japanese occupation of Korea was brutal in the extreme. In 1941-2 Japan corrected the deadly mistake she had made tolerating American expansion into the Pacific, and the Philippines were conquered and occupied in another orgy of gratuitous bloodshed.

    New Korea by Alleyne Ireland
    http://yeoksa.blog.fc2.com/blog-category-57.html
    From the book
    “The Japanese administration in Korea has done more to advance the interests of Korea than any other government has done to advance the interests of any country in the world… That Korean agricultural exports should have increased in little more than a decade by more than a thousand per cent; industrial exports by more than three thousand per cent, fishery exports by nearly three thousand per cent…would, if Korea were a self-governing country instead of a Japanese colonial dependency, be hailed throughout the Western world as an astounding example of national progress.”
    “… the credit is due chiefly to the humane and conciliatory attitude of Governor-General Saito toward the Korean people, and to the wise measures which, for more than six years, have been the fruit of an unstinting employment of his unusual energy and of his still more unusual administrative talents.”
    “… Vice-Governor-General Ariyoshi, one of Japan’s most expert and highly regarded civil administrators, a man whom, from my own observation, I know to be a tireless worker and sympathetic toward the Korean people.”

    The subsequent Japanese occupation of Korea was brutal in the extreme.

    Lee Young-hoon (Lee Yong-hoon, Rhee Yong-hoon, or Yi Yŏnghun) is a Korean former professor of Economics at Seoul National University and the president of the Naksungdae Institute of Economic Research. He challenged a common belief in Korea that–Japanese colonial rule and development has been an absolute evil.
    Lee made 12-part Internet Korean modern history lecture series entitled ‘Korea, A Nation Trapped in Fantasy’. The lecture, lasting more than two hours, was net-cast in two installments. Lee (sometimes transliterated as Rhee) claims educators and historians are to blame for misleading the public with flawed history education on the Japanese Empire. Prof. Lee was asked, how he managed to break free from the spell of anti-Japanese ideology so prevalent in both Koreas. He replied that it was presumably because he was not a political scientist but an economist whose be research must be based on absolutely objective numbers.

    Anti-Japan Tribalism (반일종족주의, 反日種族主義) is a book written by Lee Young-hoon, Joung An-ki, Kim Nak-nyeon, Kim Yong-sam, Ju Ik-jong, and Lee Woo-yeon. It was published by Miraesa on July 10, 2019. It was subtitled “The Root of the Korean Crisis. The book posits that there is a shamanistic mentality in a small minority of South Korean people who regard Japan as their primary enemy. Such a mentality, the authors argue, gave rise to some anti-Japanese Empire arguments among some South Koreans. In the book’s prologue titled “A Country of Lies,” Lee Young-hoon speaks critically of the people who lie, the politics which lie, the scholarship of lies, and the trials of lies. According to this book, the lies are particularly noticeable in some instances of the Republic Of Korea’s (ROK/ South Korea) national history. Lee and the co-authors thus elucidate how a minority of people in their country has created a small number of forged historical accounts. Essentially, the book argues that the official history of the ROK has never been empirical. Anti-Japanism has been a dogma for a minority in post-independence South Korea. As such, some anti-Japanese Empire forgeries were produced to dramatize the ROK’s national history. Critical of such falsification, the book argues that some South Korean scholars, journalists, novelists, artists, activists, and politicians all contributed to this process.

    The book “has a potential to dismantle the ROK’s official history, the one that has been taught as right.” Korean leftist historians presented modern Korean history as the story of the Korean people on a steady march toward freedom against a rotating cast of oppressors: Imperial Japan and South Korea’s fascist dictators.Even after Korea democratized in 1987, this understanding of history remained hugely influential among Korea’s liberals.

    In the book, Lee and five other authors debunked some of the widely accepted “misconceptions” about the Japanese colonial rule. Slave labor is one of the colonial issues that pitted the six authors against other historians. The authors claimed Koreans who were taken to Japan or China in the 1930s and in the 1940s during World War II were migrant workers dreaming of making money, and they chose to work overseas, as opposed to popular descriptions that they were taken by the Japanese military against their will. As discussed by Lee Woo-yeon, the book’s co-author and researcher at the Naksungdae Institute of Economic Research, Japan’s better wages and employment opportunities attracted 100,000 to 200,000 Korean workers each year through the 1930s and the early 1940s. Moreover, there was little wage discrimination during the war.

    Jo Jung-rae’ book “Arirang” is a historical fiction novel revolving around people living in the southern rural area of Gimje famous for fertile farmland during the Japanese colonial rule. The book tells of Japanese police’s executions of Koreans without trial and the massacre of thousands of Korean slave laborers who were taken to Japan. Lee denied this is a factual representation, saying public executions of Koreans without a trial didn’t happen during the Japanese colonial period. In 1913 alone, he said, 53 Koreans were executed for murder or burglary and all of them were brought to trial before they were sentenced to death.During the colonial period, the police were not allowed to put people behind bars without a trial,” he said in his book “Anti-Japan Tribalism.”

    I am against nationalism too, but am for the primacy of ever smaller units, not larger ones. I think the best system for maximizing the freedom across all the people is a kind of cantonization, where the units are maybe the size of a few large counties, and are created to provide sanctuary to similar people in whatever dimension that might entail: Maybe religion or race or culture or political philosophy of some stripe. The unifying principles are temporary and must exist by sunset laws to solve some temporary problem lasting no more than a year before they need to be renewed. People must be allowed to travel from one canton to another and must have permission to stay more than a week or so, like a visa, by the local canton authorities, but free transit must be guaranteed. Find a place you like, get permission of the destination canton, and move there, and stop crying about your local situation. Just GO then.
    I was initially for secure voting ID on a national basis, but then after some thought about it, decided that I would not want secure voting on a world level even if it was technically guaranteed to be fair, because I would not want to be governed by some bureaucrat in the Hague any more than some WOKE, (even if fairly elected) clown in DC.
    There is no practical way I can think of other than global cataclysm to allow such a system to be established. In Switzerland, the Protestants and Catholics were exhausted from fruitless wars and decided to just retreat to their own separate corners and let each other alone. Each canton has its own constitution, legislature, executive, police and courts. That’s what I want. If some canton becomes a pirate outlaw canton, refuge for criminals, the situation could be resolved by aggressive shunning and abrogation of the right of transit and trade. This would work because small isolated units of government would not affect their neighbors anyway if walled off from them. Pirates could steal from themselves until exhausted and a few generations of that behavior would cause a revolution to fix the matter.

    Here in England we are over run by all sorts of Europeans exploiting us. The Poles are the worst and they run a sort of mafia taking jobs, money and homes from the indigenous peoples. The whole of Europe is parasiting the English.
    There is no room for Americans here. Soon there will be a Holocaust of the English. 60% of the population of London were born outside of the United Kingdom.
    Some days it is like living in Mombasa-on-Thames…and if you are stupid enough to think the whites you see in the streets are English, think again because they are almost all Poles, Romanians, Lithuanians, Ukrainians etc and all the old people with them are their parents and grand parents come to leech off the English.
    If we had our way we’d kick the bloody Europeans out. So don’t you Americans think there is a place for you here because there isn’t. White people will be extinct in 3 generations and like the American Indians their passing will be mourned by the few intelligent people left.
    The lesson is ‘never trust a Jew’! But it is too late to reverse this mistake our gullible historically ignorant ancestors made. Their greed is our demise.

    “…was to ‘civilize’ native peoples and help them conform to the dominant culture….”

    I think there is some nuance to be applied here. A solution for a very real problem was being sought. It’s just that a complete mess of the attempt was made. I recommend reading Empire of the Summer Moon, by S. C. Gwynne (ISBN-13: ‎978-1416591054) as a backgrounder. Note when the author points out that Cynthia Ann Parker was a participant in raids, in the traditional manner. Pursuing his “peace policy”, Grant placed “the gentle, peace-loving Quakers” in charge of dealing with the Comanches, who subsequently were derisively referred to as “the Quaker’s pets” when they continued to pursue their traditional mode of existence. It’s interesting that the author draws a close parallel between the Comanches and the ancient Celts.

    Thus the fateful clash between settlers from the culture of Aristotle, St. Paul, Da Vinci, Luther, and Newton and aboriginal horsemen from the buffalo plains happened as though in a time warp—as though the former were looking backward thousands of years at premoral, pre-Christian, low-barbarian versions of themselves. The Celtic peoples, ancestors of huge numbers of immigrants to America in the nineteenth century, offer a rough parallel. Celts of the fifth century BC were described by Herodotus as “fierce warriors who fought with seeming disregard for their own lives.”21 Like Comanches they were savage, filthy, wore their hair long, and had a hideous keening battle cry. They were superb horsemen, inordinately fond of alcohol, and did terrible things to their enemies and captives that included decapitation, a practice that horrified the civilized Greeks and Romans.22 The old Celts, forebears of the Scots-Irish who formed the vanguard of America’s western migrations, would have had no “moral” problem with the Comanche practice of torture.

    You have many interesting insights, certainly ones that can begin to be examined somewhat dispassionately after the passage of time.

    However, I think the bombing of Cambodia has been vastly exaggerated. In my brief sojourn into Cambodia years ago, I saw zero evidence of any kind of indiscriminate bombing of the countryside. And I can guarantee you that the NVA sanctuaries along the Vietnamese border were untouched. If there was no targeted bombing of such lucrative targets as supply dumps, marshalling areas, headquarters, and R&R areas, why would we engage in massive, random, indiscriminate bombing elsewhere? I can assure you that the only thing that took the heat off of U.S. forces in IV Corps was Nixon’s ground attack on the sanctuaries. God bless, Richard Nixon.

    As for any genocide in Cambodia, the KR were nothing but home-grown fanatics in the main, faithfully supported by the dirt bag Chinese, to their everlasting shame. Had the US provided a modicum of support to Lon Nol, the horror of the KR monsters could have been prevented.

    Pol Pot said while he was still a student in France that he was going to go back to Cambodia and, IKYN, create a “perfect democracy.” And, wouldn’t you know it, he fell in with the communist nut jobs when he went home.

    I fail to see how what evolved from that leftist lunacy can be laid at the feet of the U.S.

    “Nearer to out time, when Xi and Putin both did away with the time limits to their rule…”

    Not true.

    http://www.aalep.eu/new-russian-constitutional-amendments

    “One and the same person cannot serve more than two consecutive terms as president. This restriction does not apply however to the incumbent President or former President Dmitri Medvedev. Under an amendment made at the last minute, there will be a ‘reset’ of terms served before the new Constitution takes effect. Potentially, this would mean that Putin is able to serve until 2036, because the ‘reset’ does not mean that an early presidential election has to be held to renew Putin’s mandate.”

    You can argue if the reset was justified or not, but in no way do these reforms correspond to what was done in China where term limits were entirely abolished. The Russian presidential term is six years, and after two consecutive terms that president has to wait 6 years before running again.

    I’ve read a dozen articles in the western press about these changes, and not one of them points this out – they all refer to it as Putin extending his term for life, which may be true given his age, but in fact misrepresents the intent of the changes which is clearly stated in the amendments, and which were subject to a referendum which passed with a clear majority. Has China ever held a referendum on anything, and if they did, could the results be trusted?

    Another point not mentioned in the western press, and for obvious reasons is this:

    “Increased requirements are introduced for persons exercising public authority whose powers are directly related to ensuring the country’s security and state sovereignty, namely: to the Prime-Minister of the Russian Federation and his deputies, federal ministers, other heads of federal executive bodies, senior officials of regions of the Russian Federation, heads of federal state bodies, members of the Federation Council and the State Duma, judges. Having foreign citizenship or a residence permit of another country will be prohibited for them at the constitutional level. They will also be prohibited from having bank accounts abroad.

    No need to speculate on who this is aimed at.

    The GOP certainly doesn’t reverse trends that the left promotes. It whines, and cries, and eventually calms down when the Left assuages the GOP that whatever the latest crusade is, that’s as far as it goes. The GOP apologizes for the fuss and then proceeds to lose the next election.

    They don’t even seem to have any memory of this. They eventually fold on everything and act as a 10 year anchor on the left. Even stranger is that they get indignant over issues they once opposed which shows mental capitulation. What’s wrong with gay marriage? Doesn’t affect me. None of my business.

    What gets me is that they have zero cognizance of being within the left’s field of vision.

    They debate gay marriage or critical race theory amongst themselves and later give in after the left comes up with a new issue.

    Who exactly are they serving? That is what they need to ask themselves.

    I think race denial has made them go mad. They have no moral bearing because they can’t admit some very basic truths about society which leads them to accept anything the left tosses at them. They made a long bet on the “Free market” somehow fixing everything and that isn’t paying off. Conservatism in the US is an alliance of the greedy and deluded.

    It seems to me that activists of various types – feminist, homosexual, and race-based – are simply pursuing a sensible strategy: namely, extending the accepted social ‘boundary’ in their favour while they have momentum, in preparation for ceding some of the excess in the eventual shake-out.

    This is pretty normal.

    If you were trying to take territory, it makes no sense to stop fighting when your forces reach where you would like the new border to be – because the line at which the fighting stops is the starting point for negotiations, and those negotiations generally involve ceding some captured territory (and negotiations that are too ‘unfair’, leave the ‘defeated’ in a surly mood and spoiling for another fight in due course).

    That’s all these activist types are doing.

    They press their case – and move the ‘front line’ a bit.

    They fully expect that at some future date they will have to give up some of the gains they’ve made, in order to consolidate their successes.

    If there is no genuine push-back once the new ‘front line’ is established… well, they go back and ask for something else.

    That makes sense: it gives more of a buffer between the existing state of affairs, and the actual ‘core’ objectives of the activists.

    Let’s say you wanted to abolish slavery.

    Your initial position might be that
    ① the slaves should be freed;
    ② slaves should be compensated for their suffering; and
    ③ slaveowners should be expropriated and imprisoned or executed if they were brutal.

    Obviously that’s not going to get buy-in from slaveowners – especially the brutal ones.

    So then you drop the ‘take slaveowners shit and clap them in irons‘ bit, and reduce your claim a bit.

    Now you’re just asking for manumission and compensation… but all you really want is manumission. Maybe you add a sweetener – like “We’ll free ’em, and compensate the slaveowners“.

    All we’re seeing is that various forms of modern activism haven’t hit the point where the bulk of society says “Nope. Fuck that: that last thing you want is a step too far. Back the fuck up.“.

    Once we get to that point, the activists will cede ground towards their core principles.

    Women’s rights activists have already done that: the lunatic fringe ‘all men are rapists’ dipshits started losing in the 1990s when Naomi Wolf and others saw that most of the ‘core’ battle had been won. Susan Faludi even wrote ‘Backlash’ about the coming wave of retreat of feminism. Faludi is still in the game, but she’s ‘pivoted’ to trans issues because that’s where the money is.

    It ought to go without saying that in the current climate there are some (((bad actors))) involved, who just want to pit goyim against one another and grab some kosher popcorn – they’re the main source of drama because they egg on the ambit claims and encourage what would be irredentism in a geographical contest.

    And it makes sense in several fronts: that you are reasonable, you have good faith in negotiation, you don’t want to use force to settle, you are not bullying, you want good behaviors to be the model of settlement to OTHERS enemy (not just the current one), and model for future disputes (in territorial or otherwise), etc.
