Steynian 201

ElfNotes

APOLITICAL ELFERY? ~ In the previous incarnation of Binks The WeBelf, it was all about religion: Anglicanism, and the long suicide of a once-great church. Since December last, jumping in where angels fear to tread, it’s been Free Mark Steyn 24/7/365. How bad is it? It’s ultimate news-monger red meat– Lambeth Conference time, and I’m not even reading about it. I’ve also been throwing Obama Links around the web, and the more I read about this corrupt, humourless, dishonest, flip-flopping, messianic candidate, the scarier it gets. He’s a Junior Senator, with an old, deep. and ever-unravelling record of sleaziness. As said before, I’m no expert, but this is one scary-bad man, with a full-on soft-fascism regime planned for the United States. Communist and totalitarianism is not dead: it’s just gone all smiley-faced. +

~ DO TAKE TIME to read the longer and/ or deeper theoretical articles we dig up for you. Egalitarianism/ political correctness/ soft-totalitarianism are first and foremost bad ideas to be grappled with, disassembled, and lovingly smacked down like a game of Whack-A-Mole. These ideas are part of the challenge of our times, just as in past generations it was Das Kapital and Marxist-Leninism, or Mein Kampf and Hitlerism. Part of the challenge of any such ideologies are: (1) they contain some grains of truth, and (b) they are simplistically attractive to lots of people, and (iii) they must be fought with other ideas, not just ranting, nostalgia, or other equally stupid but opposite ideologies. To get a good background on a range of topics, read Liberal Fascism by American Jonah Goldberg; any of the books of Canadian William Gairdner, or Roger Kimball, Mark Steyn– plus all the books, websites, and other resources they use and recommend. The good things of the mind are treasures for all of us, not just the chattering classes or ivory towered. +

~ IF YOU DO like watching slow-motion car-crashes with gore and blood and body-parts– or the Anglican Meltdown– then Chris Johnson over at the MCJ is your best bet.. al lthe links, the inside stuff, and LOTS of humour to leaven the misery. +

“.. [A]ll totalitarian regimes reduce the absolute and eternal value of human life—each and every human life—to the level of objects. We become clever talking things, but still things, components in a social organism, and are thus ultimately disposable. Both Nazism and Marxism were political forms of such Materialism, yet as John Paul II and Benedict XVI have repeatedly taught, there are other forms of Materialism that can have worse long-range effects on the human community, such as the transformation of man into a consumer without conscience, propagandized softly and relentlessly without overt violence.”
