The Fortress

The Fortress (남한산성/南漢山城) is not the best movie for a brief escape from reality. It can be a rather depressing movie, with a limited number of action sequences, so it may not be that appealing to a modern audience. It may be too dreary even for a Korean audience, but I don't know what the Korean reviews of the movie have been like..

The movie is critical of the hypocrisy of the royal court (and of most officials in general). The pro-democracy sentiment expressed briefly by one of the characters in the movie was perhaps anachronistic, even if we might agree with it. (And it is this sentiment which leads to the small emotional pay-off at the end of the movie.)

Some may think that the characterization of the minister of the interior Choi Myung-kil and the minister of rites Kim Sang-heon is inadequate. I thought the conflict (and limited cooperation) between them was sufficient enough to draw a contrast between the two men. (Does the original novel pay more attention to court intrigue and conflicts between the various officials?) Their different understandings of what duty and loyalty require are the engine of the story. (Is the movie, or novel, an adequate representation of the neo-Confucian mindset, though?)

The movie does raise an important moral question: of the prudence for waging a just defensive war against an invader when the defeat seems more likely than not.

Given the historical circumstances of the story, watching the movie can be a bit of slog, and the character arcs of the two officials may not be enough to keep most people's attention.

Still, LBH should do more saeguk -- he's good in these roles.

And Here Is the Problem with Roman Catholic Leadership

Catholics Mixed on Boy Scouts' move to family scouting

The National Catholic Committee on Scouting’s executive committee simply announced it accepted the BSA’s girl membership proposal.

George Sparks, the NCCS’ national chairman, told the Register that the organization did not have an objection to BSA’s proposal to admitting girls into traditional pack and troop units, while maintaining single-gender programming, since the vast majority of Catholic youth-ministry programs are already coed.

Sparks said the BSA wants to have a model of “family scouting” that brings both parents and children into its programs as a family. From the Church’s point of view, packs and troops chartered by Catholic parishes are part of a “youth-ministry program” that allows the parish to minister to people who otherwise do not engage in their other youth programs.

Who said the sensitive, new-age man is gone?

He is alive and well among TOB Catholics!


Waiting for the first panderingly sincere TOBs-er to say #MakeApp is demeaning to women because it reduces their value to their appearance and that all women deserve to be loved. Count the # of fallacies there--here's a hint: there's one non-sequitur and one fallacy of equivocation.

All women should be loved with agape, but not all women inspire eros, nor should all women be wifed up. As for the objectification of women simply by looking: Men objectify everything -- it is a feature of male psychology and is tied to their being visually-oriented and primarily directed towards the external
world and action. In addition, visual markers of health and fertility are important for male-to-female attraction. Feminists, despite their credentials and "education," simply hate the Other because they don't understand him/them. Unfortunately some of their biggest allies and enablers in this respect are social conservatives.

The mental gymnastics and outrage of feminists over MakeApp is very amusing.

What Future for Catholic Higher Education?

Taking Catholic Out of Catholic Universities

Are the small Catholic colleges really doing a better job when it comes to fighting cultural Marxism and feminism? The book smarts they deliver may be better than that of the large dechristianized Catholic universities, but it is far from being thorough, and the practice of life that their campus arrangements offer is is deficient. Hard to say who as a group will be the last to take the red pill, but conservative Catholics are certainly in that contest.
If investing and profiting from water rights sounds repugnant to you, then how about speculation on housing? The claim that housing is a fundamental human right, even if it can only be justified partially and conditionally upon the existence of a political-economic system, has more substance to it than the claim that a house is a mere financial asset.

Christopher Tolkien, Have You Capitulated?

And betrayed your father's legacy?

There is news that Warner Brothers and Amazon are in negotiations, along with the Tolkien estate, to create a new TV series based on Lord of the Rings. Is this a new adaptation (in which case the rights are not possessed by the estate) or a new story based on Tolkien source material? Why would Christopher Tolkien choose to collaborate? Or is he no longer in control of the estate?

What's to prevent Hollywood from adding even more SJW elements to this new LOTR story? More gay hobbits? More invented female warriors for girl power?


The new Doctor for nuDoctor Who. That franchise is dead.


(((Stranger Things)))

Apparently the concern I had about Stranger Things going in a PC direction of girl-power was justified. But then again
this may have been the plan of the Duffer brothers all along, with El. First they hook you then they feed you propaganda.

That the show received praise from a writer for The American Conservative should have sparked suspicion that all was not right? And even if SJWs, who might prefer their antifa wet dream that is Bushwick, are critical of the series for being too white or some other reason, it does not mean that "conservatives" should embrace the show as their own.

The actress who plays Eleven, Millie Bobby Brown, reminded me of a young Nathalie Portman in The Professional. It turns out that she is also a Jew. And then there's Paul Reiser and Winona Ryder and at least one other actor, Finn Wolfhard. What about the creators, the Duffer Brothers? Are they Jewish? One of them has married a staunch Jew.

More of a resonance with Talmudic Judaism than just the portrayal of outcasts, the nerds of Stranger Things? Will Eleven turn out to be a Super Pharisee? Another orphan girl with super powers who saves the day, like Rey of nuStar Wars? Are the Duffer Brothers engaging in more Pharasaical subversion of American pop culture, once again through 80s nostalgia, following the footsteps of Jar Jar Abrams? ("Hello fellow white people"?) Avoiding the sentimentalism of Steven Spielberg is not enough to make their show good.

A story that has the moral that one should do good, avoid evil, is not sufficient to make it a good American story, if what is "American" is understood as properly having a Christian facet, even if only implicit, like in the fantasy of Tolkien. What is the Divine component of Stranger Things, if there is one? How is the embodiment of evil in the Upside Down to be understood? Even if the series is a good riff of or homage to 80s horror and fantasy, this would not be a point in its defense, as much of that genre wasn't Christian either, even if some element of truth can be found in it.

The evil thing reminds me a bit of the smoke monster of Lost. Is there any connection between the two series? And how is it "evil," other than being destructive of life or causing death? (Is there an equivalence being made between science of sci-fi and magic of fantasy?)

What about the supposed Biblical allusions?

What Do the Chinese Have to Be So Proud of?

Especially when comparing themselves to white Americans?

I've never heard a Chinese person express such a sentiment, not that I can recall, with one possible exception (family). But maybe such a sentiment does exist and is more widespread than I am aware of.

Possible reasons:

1. The love of education? Not when it is ordered solely to the pursuit of wealth.
2. Language and a 3000-yr old civilization? Do they really embody the highest values of this civilization merely because they speak a language in the Sinitic family of languages? Is that language superior to English with respect to its versatility in philosophy or theology? How about poetry? Or is just the felt superiority through being associated with a superior group?
3. The entrepreneurial spirit? Some Chinese are industrious and successful at making a buck in a foreign country, but is that really something to be proud of, if we take into account what they are neglecting?
4. A superior moral code or etiquette? This is questionable as well.

Confessions of Love

Maybe beta confessions of love as shown in this AKB48 PV (and held to be ideal by many immature Asian teenagers) can be somewhat successful with those who are more innocent or naive (or emotionally repressed) -- and after all, don't East Asians mature later? Still, being alpha would be even more effective with the innocent girls.

Where are the men to teach these teenaged males how to be men? And if the ones who are successful in the video are the more assertive and "attractive" males " (there is one rejection), we should not be shocked that so many Japanese men are going their own way and being "herbs."

(Makes one wonder if the AKB48 girls are being genuine in their expression of emotions. Are they really touched by such gestures of "pure love"? Or are they themselves actually waiting for the high-status Japanese men to take ownership of them?

Any Hope for the Millenials?

How Millennials Became ‘Generation Meh’ by Teresa Mull
With nothing to rebel against, we've lost our edge.

A r-selected population? Or should one reduce political conflict, as Jonathan Haidt does, to individuals with competing personality traits that are somehow equal in value and goodness, with the corollary that millenials have come to possess a set of certain traits but lack [many] others? I prefer a more classical analysis: what has been generated is a soft, pampered, dulled male population that has been successfully pacified and emasculated. There is nothing to "rebel" against because someone in such a condition is unable to perceive the evils that exist and to take action against those evils. "When liberty is taken away, no one will miss it."

Is this the natural consequence of urbanization or the intended outcome of a deliberate program by the state to preserve its power against all possible threats (including the people)? The cause does make a difference in how we respond to the problem.

The incorporation and application of feminism as state ideology by those holding political and economic power, leading to a soft matriarchy over education and increasingly the government bureaucracies and the judiciary, expedites the emasculation even more.
But generation Z may turn out to be more based than the millenials, especially if we help to make it so.

Will There Be a Return to the Medieval University?

There is no financial infrastructure for it, and today's good Catholic colleges are a pale comparison with the Catholic medieval university. They may feel fortified within a conservative enclave, but just wait until they hire their first SJW (who is more likely than not to be a woman, and of course our conservative Catholic intellectuals have to show how egalitarian they are but hiring women). The sort of accountability that is required for honest debate and discussion can only be found within a group of men, and that is not always what happens. A woman who must submit and show deference or respect to men because of their unequal social standing isn't really a peer for such a discussion. An university doesn't not operate separate from the political community; rather it is an instantiation of the political community, and a teacher or scholar cannot divide his identity into two separate spheres of life. As a teacher or scholar he is also at the same time a member of the political community; he is accountable not only to his colleagues at the school but to his fellow citizens in the polis.

One might think that Fr. Julian Carron, the head of Communion and Liberation, is just name-dropping Pope Francis and presenting a "traditional" view of how Christianity is an evangelizing force rooted in a personal encounter with Christ. But he seems to be more of a Francis fan than that.

Does Fr. Carron address a Christian's political identity and duties? Or does he just assume that a multicultural empire will last forever and that a Christian is an rootless cosmopolitan meeting other rootless cosmopolitans?

Of Course This Was Written by a Man with a Woman's Name

St. Thomas's Commentary on the Sentences

Gamma Qi

Is there a disproportionate number of gammas practicing taiqi in comparison with their percentage of the Chinese population? Various teachers and masters claim that they have the ability to win fights, but it seems to me that this is rarely shown to be the case. In fact there is a video of a Chinese boxer challenging a taiqi master and winning. The gamma thinks he is secretly invincible thanks to his cultivation of qi, and doesn't need to prove himself in real combat. How about the sorry number of Chinese men who bought into the esoteric invincibility crap during the Taiping and Boxer Rebellions? This belief that they would be impervious to blades and bullets wasn't built on knowledge but belief, one approaching religious faith. They thought they could defeat the Qing or the Westerners. Small wonder that after their defeats the terrible image of the weakness of China came into being, along with the Chinese inferiority complex. Now the Chinese government and military is doing its best to catch up with the West, but their videos (and even their appearance in Chinese entertainment and movies) seem to be just propaganda, laughable.

Where is the strong Chinese military of the imperial times? Or was that just an illusion, with mercenaries and barbarians supplying most of the martial strength?

"Drunk Girl"

The song may appeal to those "traditional" (i.e. social conservative) Americans who love chivalry and to women and feminists who love chivalry but is it too blue pill? Does a man have an obligation to help a drunk girl get home? Why isn't it the obligation of the university or college (if she is a college student) or of her dorm RA? I suppose they wouldn't want such a responsibility, and even claim that they don't have it. But isn't it their job to prevent rape (or regretful consensual sex)? Maybe he should call her parent/guardian. But what if he/she/xe is not living in close proximity? Perhaps every drunk woman should have a tag with the contact info of a designated friend who will take her home.

Would Chris Janson really raise a daughter who engages in such risky behavior?

(Though the cops wouldn't be able to stop one from crossing, and the city wouldn't be liable if one were shot by the armed suspect because one took the risk of crossing.)
