There is need in human life for levity. So, enjoy your time here in leisurely frivolity, where no Puritan can condem you.

Dugin on the Election

Bonald from Throne and Altar recently reviewed The Fourth Political Theory by Alexander Dugin. He notes how Dugin adopts postmodern stances to advance his argument, which seems common among Russians. I wonder whether they are sincere or whether they are pulling the Left’s chain. Anyway, Bonald’s article reminded me of a video that I watched a few months ago. In March, I sent the link to my friend Andrew with the description:

Better than SNL; sublime at times (2:41 - 3:20 has some golden lines if you can’t watch the whole thing).
We live in a weird, weird time. I’m waiting to see President Camacho’s State of the Union on C-SPAN.

Enjoy.

Comic genius—perhaps better than Colbert at his best—but is it intentionally so?

By the way, if you are woefully ignorant of President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho, you really ought to watch Idiocracy. Here is the aforementioned State of the Union (rated R)—five hundred years in America’s dysgenic future:

Interestingly, the YouTube video is followed by one that compares Camacho to the Trumpenführer. We are all sharing a mass psychosis.

Perfect Commentary on #NeverTrump

My mother sent me a link to the following video, which aptly illustrates the response of Ted Cruz et alia to the Republican primary results this spring:

In the video, a toddler throws a hissy fit because her new little sister has displaced her as the centrum mundi.

I am not a populist. Even as a child, I instinctively favored the optimates over the populares when I read that chapter in Roman history. Nevertheless, I am no fan of the contemporary elite, as noted in “The Undefended City.” These “silk-robed sons of bitches” provide a cracked window through which I am beginning to understand the rage that peasants and proles have often felt toward their social betters. For our unworthy elites seem willing to let everything around them fall to ruin in order to squeeze one more advantage for themselves from the body politic in its death throes. The work of generations is gladly sacrificed for a bit more luxury, power, and status. Despicable. I do not have high hopes for a Trump administration (put not your trust in princes), but I do have reasonable expectations that Donald the Disrupter will complicate the game for some (and he has already). Didn’t the Normans have a saying like, “He destroys well who builds better”? That is not a high bar for someone who engages our current regime.
