Better Living Through Suicide

24th July 2017

ZMan looks at the eco-Nazis.

Religions tend to set limits. Those limits come with the force of God or some spiritual force that transcends man. Otherwise, a religion would be nothing more than man-made rules enforced by the strongest. This is why laws in most of the world are rooted in the dominant religion of the region or country. The local religion is a list of restrictions and limitations placed on the believers. Naturally, when it came time to form a government and write laws, they relied upon the laws and rules of their religion.

This may seem rather obvious, but the concept of the limiting principle is easy to take for granted. This is a core feature of most religions and it easiest to understand by considering our laws. Take two people who are not robbing banks. Just as long as both are not robbing banks, neither is more or less of a bank robber than the other. Both are simply not bank robbers. In other words, while there may be degrees of bank robbery, there are no degrees of not bank robbery. Not being one is the limit of that virtue.

We see this with the nature movements that have been a feature of the Left for as long as anyone reading this has been alive. The greens always aim for some sort of Edenic outcome. Their goal always lies just a little further. The idea of “good enough” is outside their comprehension. Couple that with their preternatural belief in the sinfulness of man and you end up with a nature cult that borders on being a suicide cult. The end point of every Progressive nature movement is the end of mankind.

“Two legs bad, four legs good.” Orwell had them pegged.

In order to save the planet, according to researchers and experts no less, is to avoid having more humans and make the ones waiting around to die as miserable as possible. The unspoken reason for selling the car and sitting in the dark with your nothing burger is so you can suffer and atone for your sins. In other words, it is not enough to be a green, you have to kill yourself as the ultimate sign of your virtue.

I just wish they would get on with it and not pester the rest of it. But I suppose the model doesn’t come with that option.

This is the problem that has haunted the Left in America. There’s no concept of good enough. They are always chanting, “we can do more” or “there is more work to do.” No matter how much damage they do in the holy cause, they are sure that more needs doing, more must be done. It’s why their causes tend to burn out in fits of insanity like we see with the whole transgender thing. The quest for the ultimate victim has led them to celebrate mental illness as a virtue and deny biological reality.

Denying reality is what the Left does best. It started with economics but then it metastasized.

ADD-ON: Environmentalists Go Off on a Bender

Nothing used to send environmentalists into a rage faster than when I started pointing out, more than 20 years ago now, that most (not all) environmental trends in the U.S. had gotten dramatically better, and would continue to get better in the future. You’d think environmentalists would take Yes for an answer, but when you are an eschatological cult, a decline in sin and the reduction it the need for authoritarian priestly salvation ruins your reason for existence.

UK: Masked Men Storm McDonald’s During Attempted Robbery in Broad Daylight

23rd July 2017

Read it.

The two men burst into the fast food restaurant near Switch Island around 9.15 on Sunday morning and jumped over the serving counter to force their way into the office at the back.

They then threatened the manager and a cash delivery guard before stealing the cash boxes from them, the Liverpool Echo reported.

But as they made their escape, one of the men fell over, dropping the cash boxes.

Pretty incompetent. It will be interesting to know who they are, if they are ever found.

The offenders were described as tall, with their faces and hands covered.

Faces are typical, but hands? Hmmm. Perhaps to conceal the color of their skins? Hmmmmmm.

‘Fight for the Future’ Offers $15K to Leftist Cells Fighting Trump

23rd July 2017

Read it.

“Fight for the Future,” a progressive non-profit organization that claims to “seek to expand the internet’s transformative power for good,” is offering as much as $15,000 a month to fund leftist activism against Donald Trump. Prospective members are expected to establish “A-Teams,” or cells dedicated to specific issues.

The ostensibly non-partisan organization, which was founded in 2011 to campaign for Net Neutrality, has shifted its focus towards the nation’s 45th President, declaring him to be a threat to the world’s future. Posting on its “A-Teams,” or Activism Teams project page, the organization is calling upon activists of every stripe to step up in defense of the world.

It’s all about the Narrative, Larry.

How Democrats Stole the Nation’s Lower Federal Courts

22nd July 2017

Read it.

The Democrats, and Sen. Chuck Schumer in particular, have engaged in an outrageous set of practices from 1993 to 2017 that have allowed them to steal huge majorities on all the federal circuit courts of appeals. This story needs telling because Senate Republicans, while performing very admirably in replacing Justice Scalia with Justice Gorsuch, have had their pockets picked with the courts of appeals.

Chuck Shumer is a Nazi’s dream — he’s a walking example of every anti-semite’s caricature of a slimy evil Jew.

Tribes Are Just Big Families. Yup, That Bad.

21st July 2017

Read it.

Somehow, I’m betting that most of you fled from the bosom of your families in order to go live out in the big cold atomized impersonal individualistic world, and you’re not exactly champing at the bit to go back.

Because there are costs, and they are crushing.  Families do not understand, cannot understand, personal boundaries.  The counterbalance to “your family will always care about you” is “your family will feel free to use and remake every part of your existence.”  Families are places where every point of incompatibility or tension will be rubbed raw until it bleeds and festers, because people can’t just agree to leave each other alone.  Families subordinate your dreams to their own collective ambitions and values.  Families run Every. Single. Thing. through a system of manipulative personal politics.

Different people have different levels of tolerance for such things, and so the individualism / tribalism tradeoff plays out differently in every case.

I have very little. Most of my relatives are people with whom I would not voluntarily associate.

Crazy Is a Pre-Existing Condition

21st July 2017

The Other McCain keeps track so that you don’t have to.

Young people are becoming seriously confused by the transgender cult. Or perhaps the causation works the other way, and confused young people are magnetically attracted to the cult belief that, with the “treatment” of synthetic hormones and surgery, they can escape their adolescent woes by “transitioning” into the opposite sex. Feminists have identified the factor of social contagion in what they call “rapid-onset gender dysphoria.” Through the influence of peers, and also through online recruitment by transgender cultists, many teenagers are quite suddenly convinced that they were “born in the wrong body.” In a matter of months or even a few weeks, an otherwise healthy teenage will develop an obsession with “gender transition” and demand that parents not only accept their new transgender identity, but often threaten suicide unless parents support them in seeking hormone “treatment” immediately. This kind of emotional blackmail is part of the transgender cult’s ideology, as activists claim that anyone who opposes them is effectively sentencing teenagers to death by denying them acceptance and “health care.”

Your hardware determines what sex you are. If your brain disagrees, that’s a software problem, not a hardware problem.

Trying to fix a software problem by radically changing the hardware to match the software is ass-backwards.

Eggheadization

20th July 2017

Severian follows culture down the tubes.

There are 350+ million people in America today; Elizabethan England had maybe 3 million.  Just as a matter of simple probability, there should be some world-class sonnet-writers around right now…

… but, of course, there aren’t, because sometime in the later 19th century our universities started awarding degrees in English Literature.  You’ve got to justify all those years in grad school somehow, and so by the 1950s you had J. Evans Pritchard, PhD, laying down mathematical formulae for judging a poem’s excellence.  And now only Diversity Pokemon write poetry.  Seriously, can you even name a 20th century poet, let alone quote him?

Well, T. S. Elliot, but nothing since 1960, since that’s when the rot set in. (No, Maya Angelou is not a poet; she is a Poetry Affirmative Action Hire.)

Guns and the Prog

17th July 2017

ZMan does some sociology.

The mountain of data in support of liberalized gun laws is beyond dispute. Even if you are not inclined to dig into the details, the fundamental logic is manifest. People who abide by the laws are, by definition, not the sort to break the laws. That means people who break the law are not interested in any new laws you are passing. Therefore, passing gun laws will only inconvenience those who follow the law and do nothing to stop the criminals. At best, gun laws are just a tool of the state to go after the more clever street gangs.

Despite all this, Progressives obsess over gun laws. This story from a few months ago is a good example. The people who support this sort of stuff know nothing about guns, gun culture or gun shows. Yet, they remain convinced that gun shows resemble an arms bizarre in the Middle East, where bearded men buy and sell military gear. Further, they remain convinced that gun shows are exempt from the thousands of gun laws on the books. They are convinced that “gun show loophole” is a real thing.

And that puts it about as simply as it can be put.

That’s what makes guns a useful topic for understanding the Prog mind. All of us have had the experience where the Prog friend or relative starts going on about guns. Someone then steps forward to correct all of their errors about guns and gun laws. Then someone gently explains to them the anti-logic at the core of gun control. The Prog will take correction, nod along and seem to understand the material, but then soon after they will be repeating the same gun control slogans they were saying the last time.

Indeed, that’s what they do with every issue on which proglodytes and rational adults differ.

Halifax Caving To Protesters Who Want Statue Of Cornwallis Removed

16th July 2017

Read it.

The City of Halifax, Nova Scotia covered up a statue of its founder, General Edward Cornwallis, Saturday in response to demands by protesters who want the monument removed. With only 150 protesters on-scene, city crews draped a black cloth over the statue as a “sign of good faith” that it will eventually be removed.

The protesters object to commemorating Cornwallis, a key figure in the British response to the American Revolution, who founded Halifax in 1749. They say he was a progenitor of “genocide” because he waged war against the Mi’kmaq tribe that lived in what is now Nova Scotia.

The madness spreads and, with success, is encouraged to spread further.

Everyday Snowflakes

16th July 2017

Theodore Dalrymple points and laughs.

I first thought about this during the early years of the AIDS epidemic, when it was demanded of us that we should believe incompatible things simultaneously, for example that it was simply a disease like any other and that it was a disease of unprecedented importance and unique significance; that it could strike anybody but that certain group were martyrs to it; that it must be normalized and yet treated differently. For example, tests for it alone of all the thousands of ills that flesh was heir to had, by legal prescription, to be preceded by pre-test counseling. It was a bit like living under a small version of a communist dictatorship, in which the law of noncontradiction had been abrogated in favor of dialectics, under which all contradictions were compatible, but which contradictions had to be accepted was a matter of the official policy of the moment.

Human beings are funny. I remember a patient who insisted that her AIDS be treated as a disease like any other, but who also made sure we never forgot that she had contracted it voluntarily by deliberately injecting herself with the blood of a friend with AIDS. She was not suicidal, at least not in the sense that she wanted to die there and then, or anytime soon. Rather, she had a Byronic notion of the disease, a romantic conception of it as a badge of superior sensibility, which is to say that those who suffered from it were in some way morally superior to those who did not, and thus were imbued with a moral authority that others did not share. And yet at the same time she demanded to be treated matter-of-factly. By demanding this difficult psychological feat of us, recognition and nonrecognition at the same time (a feat to which, by the way, we proved equal by the exercise of self-control), she was in effect exerting her power over us. It was all very pathetic, a consequence of her thirst for significance in a mass society.

The Church of Modern Lunacy

14th July 2017

ZMan turns over a rock.

I have a passing interest in the Church of England and its American variation, the Episcopal Church. An old friend is in the church so I get some first hand descriptions of what it is like to be in a dying institution. That’s the only way to describe the Episcopal Church. Attendance declines every year as old members die off and new members never materialize. Go into an Episcopal service and you can’t help but notice that most everyone is a senior. The actuarial tables are the church’s greatest enemy.

Lawfare

13th July 2017

ZMan turns over a rock.

The weaponization of the law, particularly the civil courts has become so common, that we no longer notice it. The most obvious example is when  someone gets acquitted of a crime, but then the alleged victim goes to civil court for damages. Alternatively, some hate thinker gets off in state court, but the the feds come in and charge the guy with civil rights violations. It’s an obvious abuse of the law in order to get around the jury system, but it is now just another feature of a system more concerned with vengeance than justice.

The college rape hoax phenomenon is another variation on this. A mentally unstable coed makes claims that can never be proved, but the school, fearing Title IX litigation, punishes the accused anyway. The SPLC is doing something similar with their litigation against the website, The Daily Stormer. The point of the suit is to shut down the site, because the people at the SPLC don’t like the content. Even if the case is eventually tossed, the point is to intimidate the owner and anyone who holds similar opinions.

Who Is “Ruining America”?

13th July 2017

Read it.

This David Brooks column called “How We Are Ruining America” has received lots of attention on the internet, but I don’t think we have commented on it. According to Brooks, members of the college-educated upper middle class — the top 20 percent or so — are ruining America by making sure their kids have good opportunities and, supposedly, making sure that kids from lower classes don’t get them.

Brooks’ beef is that the college-educated upper middle class is excluding other people’s kids from access to the opportunities their kids have. But Brooks has just told us that the way we confer these opportunities is to embrace behavior codes that put cultivating successful children at the center of life.

This tactic is available to members of all classes. Anyone can embrace behavior codes that put their kids at the center, and generations of immigrants and poor people have done. If, today, too many members of lower classes don’t embrace these codes, then they, not members of the upper middle class, are excluding their offspring from access to opportunities.

The reason why proles are proles is because they act like proles. The primary identifiers of social class are behavioral, especially in these days when it’s fashionable for upper-class people to mimic the dress and speech patterns of lower-class people.

The whole proglodyte Narrative is about denying that Fashionable Victim Groups have agency. They are the way they are because they can’t help it, so it’s Not Their Fault. Only those who are among God’s Chosen, like the Obamas, can rise above their background and become real people rather than just interchangeable units of a racial or sexual or political Identity Group.

Trudeau Minister Says Abortion ‘A Tool to End Poverty’

12th July 2017

Read it.

Trudeau’s, development minister, Marie-Claude Bibeau, called abortion a “tool to end poverty” in an interview with CTV News.

I guess the theory is that if poor people don’t reproduce eventually we’ll run out of poor people.

“Contraception and even abortion is only a tool to end poverty,” Bibeau told CTV News, adding that she wants to give women “the control over their lives. So we shouldn’t look at contraception as the objective. This is not the objective. This is only a tool to reduce poverty and inequality and to make an impact in terms of development and peace and security in the world.”

A tool to help destroy Western civilization. I’ll give her that.

Poor Design Will Be The Death of Us All

11th July 2017

Read it.

During World War II wage and price controls were implemented in a foolish attempt to restrict the unrestrictable. This led companies to compete for employees by providing tax-free health care for their employees. This was never a well-thought public policy. It was not debated and analyzed. It was simply a response to the flawed thinking behind wage and price controls.

And now a little over 70 years later we are still living with this debacle as it has become only more ingrained in our collective lives. This decades old response to a bad idea in all likelihood has forever ended any chance we might someday have a free market for health care as we do for almost every other product. At some point it time it simply becomes “you can’t get there from here.”

Sadly, in all likelihood this one response to a foolish idea will ensure we have socialized medicine forever. And as many have noted, socialized medicine leads to only more socialism, and socialism has never worked long-term in any society in the history of humans. We face this bleak reality all because of a poor idea implemented decades ago.

Is California Anti-Family?

10th July 2017

Read it.

Mmmmmmm … could be.

In its race against rapidly aging Europe and East Asia, America’s relatively vibrant nurseries have provided some welcome demographic dynamism. Yet, in recent years, notably since the Great Recession and the weak recovery that followed, America’s birthrate has continued to drop, and is now at a record low.

Nowhere is this decline more marked than here in California. Once a state known for rapid population growth, and above-average fecundity, the state’s birthrate is also at a historic low. The results are particularly dismal in coastal Southern California. Los Angeles’ population of people under 17 already has dropped a precipitous 13.6 percent, with drops even among Latinos and Asians, while Orange County has fallen by 6 percent since 2000. The national growth, in contrast, was up 2.2 percent. Despite claims that people leaving California are old and poor, the two most recent years of data from the IRS show larger net losses from people in the 35 to 54 age group. Net out-migration is also larger among those making between $100,000 and $200,000 annually. This is your basic child-bearing middle class.

Europe’s Childless Leaders

10th July 2017

Read it.

James McPherson, writing in the Washington Examiner, makes a remarkable observation: the leaders of Europe have no children. France’s Emmanuel Macron has none. Same with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British prime minister Theresa May, Italian prime minister Paolo Gentilon, Holland’s Mark Rutte, Scotland’s Nicola Sturgeon, and Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission. Sweden’s prime minister Stefan Lofven has no biological children.

The prime minister of Luxembourg is also childless. I mention him not to cherry pick, but because it means that of the six founding members of what evolved into the European Union, five are now led by childless prime ministers or presidents. As George Weigel says, this would have been unimaginable to one of the founders of modern “Europe,” Konrad Adenauer, who was the father of eight.

Wounded Baton Rouge Cop Sues #BlackLivesMatter, Deray McKesson

8th July 2017

Read it.

Think of it as ‘reparations’.

A victim of the anti-police shooting in Baton Rouge, Louisiana last year is now suing Black Lives Matter-associated activists for inciting violence that led to the shooting.

Prominent Black Lives Matter activist and liberal media darling Deray McKesson is mentioned in the suit, as are four other #BLM activists. It reportedly seeks at least $75,000 in damages.

The shooter in Baton Rouge, Gavin Long, an African-American military veteran, reportedly made a manifesto before the shooting where he talked about a war between “good cops” and “bad cops” and thought he had to “bring the same destruction that bad cops continue to inflict upon my people.”

“I see my actions as a necessary evil that I do not wish to partake in, nor do I enjoy partaking in, but must partake in, in order to create substantial change within America’s police force, and judicial system.” he wrote in his manifesto.

The suit, if successful, could set a precedent for how a group’s rhetoric could lead to violence and terror, like in the case of anti-police shootings in Baton Rouge and Dallas, where Micah Xavier Johnson opened fire on officers, killing five and wounding nine.

What Explains the Vicious Left?

6th July 2017

David Gelertner connects the dots.

The asymmetry of modern politics is clear to every conservative; painfully clear to several Yale undergraduates who asked me about it recently. Leftists, they pointed out, are hostile, nasty, and seem to have no concept of a civil conversation. Why? Because they are winning? Losing? Are natural-born bullies? And how can this dangerous mood be changed?

It’s not just a question of civility versus rudeness—which of course is no small thing in itself. The deeper problem is that the left seems to have lost its taste for democracy.

Oh, c’mon, the Left was never about democracy. From Russia to China to Eastern Europe to Cuba to Venezuela, whenever the Left comes to power democracy is the first thing that goes in the Memory Hole.

The Mid-Wife Crisis

5th July 2017

ZMan turns over a rock.

We tend to think of feminism as a young woman’s game, but the real damage done to society is by the middle-aged feminists. They are like the post-graduate drug dealers that hang around high school kids, offering them booze and drugs. Not content with having thrown their own lives away, they give meaning to their lives by helping the next generation destroy itself. That’s the modern feminist. Her singular purpose is to pass the virus onto the next generation, while simultaneously ruining the lives of her peers.

When you step back from the rhetoric, feminism has always been a tantrum against biological reality. Nature has assigned narrow roles to the sexes. Men are wired to mate as often as possible with as many females as possible. Women, in contrast, are built to select a high status male and keep him around for protection of themselves and their off-spring. The pair-bonding we see outside of sub-Saharan Africa is a delicate balance that requires a complex social structure to maintain. Feminism is a tirade against this reality.

Marksmanship Is Nothing More Than White Privilege

3rd July 2017

Read it.

So here’s a handy rule of thumb when you hear about the next mass shooting and find the press being coy about who did it and why: If the shooters exhibit bad aim (substantially worse than 1 killed for every 3 wounded) then they are Black gangsters settling a score. If they exhibit passable aim (around one fatality for each wounded survivor, or perhaps a little worse) then they are “Irish” “freedom fighters” who have likely pledged allegiance to the “Irish State.” Unless the victims are cops; then a perpetrator with passable aim will likely be a Black man with military training (see Dallas and Baton Rouge).

And finally, of course, when White and East Asian gunmen go on a shooting rampage the ratio is usually far more fatal than what we’ve discussed before: Dylann Roof had a rate of 9:1; Anders Behring Breivik just barely exceeded 2:1, though with an extraordinary volume of fire that outpaced even that of Mr. Mateen in Orlando; Patrick Sherrill — the guy who invented the concept of “going postal” back in the 1980s — had a rate of 3:1; and Seung-Hui Cho recently had a rate of 2:1 at Virginia Tech.

So to end where we began: Aim, apparently, is nothing more than a species of White Privilege. Whatever shall we do to close the gap?

The Socialist Temptation

2nd July 2017

Read it.

Marxism appeared to have suffered a knockout with the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. It looked at the time like the postscript to Ronald Reagan’s long struggle against Communism, the struggle Peter Schweizer called Reagan’s War.

Now in what seems like the blink of an eye, Bernie Sanders has somehow become the most popular politician in the United States. By contrast with Reagan, here is a guy who has deeply felt what Vivian Gornick called The Romance of Communism. As we all have learned, Sanders merged the personal and the political when he spent his honeymoon in the Soviet Union. No honeymoon in Vegas for the class warrior from Burlington by way of Brooklyn.

The late Harry Jaffa cogently warned that the socialist temptation would survive the fall of the Soviet Union. If anything, the fall of the Soviet Union would enhance its appeal. “The defeat of communism in the USSR and its satellite empires by no means assures its defeat in the world,” Jaffa argued. “Indeed, the release of the West from its conflict with the East emancipates utopian communism at home from the suspicion of it affinity with an external enemy. The struggle for the preservation of western civilization has entered a new—and perhaps far more deadly and dangerous—phase.”

And here we are.

No doubt the NRA is to blame, seeing has how people got shot.

People of Color shooting each other — if it had happened in Chicago rather than Arkansas, it wouldn’t even be news.

If You’re Conservative, Here’s Why Liberals Hate Your Guts

2nd July 2017

Read it.

It’s not just ‘conservatives’, it’s anybody who doesn’t totally buy into the proglodyte agenda.

Liberals project their own hatred onto conservatives regularly with their rhetoric. She doesn’t support gay marriage? She must hate gays. She doesn’t want to expand welfare? She must hate the poor. He doesn’t want to tear down a statue of a Founding Father who held slaves? He must hate black people. That’s their excuse for their own hatred. It’s actually YOU who hates everyone; so they have to HATE YOU right back. This accounts for what my girlfriend Sierra Marlee calls their “I care about everyone and if you don’t believe that then I hope your kids get cancer” attitude.

That’s the problem. They don’t believe they did anything wrong. They believe the real issue is that you’re racist, sexist, subhuman pieces of garbage who need to be punished. When they get back into power, they’re going to do EXACTLY that and they will feel like you DESERVE IT the entire time because you’re so evil. I wish it wasn’t that way, but that is what the modern Left has become and if we don’t acknowledge that reality, we’re kidding ourselves.

Solar Panels Generate 300 Times More Toxic Waste Than Nuclear Reactors

Read it.

And yet solar panels are ‘green’ (YAY!) and nuclear power is yucky (BOO!).

The dimness of the bulbs on the Left must make them feel as if they are Saving The Planet.

A Baby Is Condemned to Death by Socialized Medicine

30th June 2017

Read it.

American liberals often gaze across the Atlantic with admiration, viewing Europe as the model for our future. They covet Europe’s rail systems, green-energy subsidies, social liberalism, secularism, welfare states and government-run healthcare.

As Washington rings with cries that a Republican health reform bill would kill “hundreds of thousands of people,” consider the desperately sad tale of Charlie Gard, a baby boy sentenced to die by Britain’s National Health Service.

Death panels. It’s the socialist way. (Where are all the bleeding hearts?)

Devil’s Dictionary

30th June 2017

ZMan turns over a rock.

Maybe it has always been true, but it seems like we live in an age of esoteric language or pseudo-language. Everyone is familiar with the gag of using “undocumented worker” in place of “illegal alien.”  Janitors became sanitation engineers and teachers are now educators. It’s a part of how the American Left makes war on our civilization. By destroying the language they destroy the truth. If words no longer have common and concise meanings, then there is no truth, only force.

Progressivism requires change, constant change, change never-ending, and the first thing that always gets changed in any political squabble is the language.

There’s another aspect to this. The Progs create pleasant sounding phrases and neologisms that are packed with danger. It’s a natural outgrowth of the passive-aggressive tactics popular with the Progs. The new word or phrase is not intended to clarify or explain idea, but to warn people that the official truth has been decided and any further debate will be seen as a challenge. As everyone knows, the Left responds to a challenge with violence so the new phrase means “shut up or else.”

As Orwell warned us, those who control our speech eventually control our thoughts; it is part of the attempt to control our thoughts that proglodytes seek to control our speech.

Have a conversation: Whenever you hear someone say they want to have a conversation about something, what they mean is they want to shut down all debate and impose their will with regards to the subject. Having a conversation about marriage led to the end of the homosexual marriage debate in favor of the sodomites. Having a conversation about race means Progs screaming at white people about racism and white privilege. Having a conversation always means sitting through a lecture.

The Cold Civil War

29th June 2017

Read it.

America is in the throes of revolution. The 2016 election and its aftermath reflect the distinction, difference, even enmity that has grown exponentially over the past quarter century between America’s ruling class and the rest of the country. During the Civil War, President Lincoln observed that all sides “pray[ed] to the same God.” They revered, though in clashing ways, the same founders and principles. None doubted that those on the other side were responsible human beings. Today, none of that holds. Our ruling class and their clients broadly view Biblical religion as the foundation of all that is wrong with the world. According to the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, “The phrases ‘religious liberty’ and ‘religious freedom’ will stand for nothing except hypocrisy so long as they remain code words for discrimination, intolerance, racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, Christian supremacy, or any form of intolerance.”

The government apparatus identifies with the ruling class’s interests, proclivities, and tastes, and almost unanimously with the Democratic Party. As it uses government power to press those interests, proclivities, and tastes upon the ruled, it acts as a partisan state. This party state’s political objective is to delegitimize not so much the politicians who champion the ruled from time to time, but the ruled themselves. Ever since Woodrow Wilson nearly a century and a half ago at Princeton, colleges have taught that ordinary Americans are rightly ruled by experts because they are incapable of governing themselves. Millions of graduates have identified themselves as the personifiers of expertise and believe themselves entitled to rule. Their practical definition of discrimination, intolerance, racism, sexism, etc., is neither more nor less than anyone’s reluctance to bow to them. It’s personal.

Plastic Bag Bans Are in Retreat Across the Country

28th June 2017

Read it.

Given the current trend, customers in Kermit and across the country will be able once again to bring their groceries home in inexpensive bags provided by their merchants. A challenge to the legality of all local bag bans in the state has made its way to the Texas Supreme Court. State legislatures across the country are taking aggressive steps to roll back local bans.

The Ruling Class don’t see any problem dictating to people how they ought to live, or to businesses what services they can provide their customers. They are, after all, the smartest people in the room — certainly smarter than anybody with out an Ivy League degree who lives in Flyover Country.

In May the Minnesota legislature passed a state-wide preemption on bag bans, overturning Minneapolis’s local prohibition. Iowa did the same in April, and over the past year, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Indiana, have all passed restrictions on local governments banning and taxing bags.

Note that the bans are always on the part of (Democrat-run) city administrations, and the defenders of consumer choice are the state legislatures, responding to (dare I say it?) the will of the people at large. Funny it is how Democrats don’t really have all that much affection for democracy.

“These bans were never about bags,” says Rozenski, “they were about litter in the waste stream. Studies are showing negligible impact to litter.”

They were never about litter, either. It was all about controlling the sinners and making them live a life of leftist virtue, in relation to which facts are irrelevant.

Bag banners completely missed the value of the bags in reducing the litter stream, “seeing it from the recycling perspective,”Moreno said. “A lot of people use them for trash bags, lot of people use them to carry their lunch.”

Every store I buy from has containers for people to recycle plastic shopping bags, and my church has a program to do the same. If you buy groceries or go to church, there is every opportunity to conveniently recycle the bags. But, of course, it was never about the bags, only about the Narrative.
