in conjunction with acquiescence to the claims of the modern nation-states.


We think of corruption in its varied forms: the misappropriation of public resources, the exploitation of individuals, the denial of rights, the flouting of community rules, dishonest gain, the justification of power by force or the arbitrary appeal to raison d’état and the refusal to relinquish power. To which we can add xenophobia, racism, lack of concern for the natural environment, the plundering of natural resources for the sake of quick profit and contempt for those forced into exile.

Southern Music

Abbeville Institute: Southern Music is American Music by Tom Daniel

"Southern music is a direct backdoor entrance to raw, authentic Southern culture without having to go through any filtered Yankee nonsense."

But what if it is played by Yankee musicians? How is that conveyed to the audience.

Was thinking of how many musicians are "progressive" or supporters of the modern Democratic party. Is this tied to the heavy emotionalism of their music? How do musicians who play more "ordered" music (as delineated by traditionalists) compare regarding their political beliefs and party affiliations? Are Southern folk musicians free from sin and vice? (Womanizing and adultery, and so on?) Is the disorder reflective less of the music than with the lifestyle, which may seem irregular to an outsider?

I believe that the most significant difference between the South and the rest of the country is that in the South, although groups of people may not get along with each other and may clash and have their differences, frequently the people within the groups get along fine. They know each other, they work together, go to church together, and they’re neighbors. They have built relationships with each other, and they see eye-to-eye on a lot of face-to-face issues, and they are rightfully happy with that arrangement. However, outside the South, that situation is exactly reversed. Although groups of people may be technically cooperative, the individuals within the groups don’t have anything to do with each other. I like our way better.

Oz Conservative: Do women love the same way?

Do women judge the quality of their relationships (or compatibility with a man) through emotion alone? Or does reason have more of a role? This is the question. Emotion is primarily directed at the self, so if they are judging through emotion alone, one should expect the judgment to be more self-focused in that respect.

L'Acte V

Populism a Child of the French Revolution?

De Mattei: The Two Souls of the Yellow Gilets by Roberto de Mattei

From the historical-political viewpoint, both these concepts originate with the French Revolution, which marked the end of Christian civilization, and the rise of a “profane” political space. In 1789, when the General States assembled together in Versailles, the French Monarchic State was characterized by a social tripartite. At the top were the clergy and the nobility, at the bottom the Third State. After the dissolution of the General States, in the National Assembly, the defenders of the Throne and the Altar were located on the right, and on the left, were the liberals and the republicans. The first defend the upper class, the second the people – in the lower ranks. The two metaphors, those of the vertical and horizontal, are interconnected.

What sort of political authority, direct or indirect, would De Mattei like to see the Church have? And by what divinely-given competence would bishops have such authority?

Sovereignty is still a bad word, even though it can be defined differently and in a way that is consonant with Natural Law. But for Latin traditionalists it is a product of the Enlightenment. (And not a product of the modern nation-state and statism! Even if the philosophers who talked about it were not official spokesman for the nation-state or the ruling regime, they nonetheless philosophized in such an environment. While they may have rejected the claims of an individual or group to authority, how many of them denied the legitimacy of the modern nation-state? And if they did, would they have lived long?)

Of course, there is a reference to Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira, the founder of TFP.

Is it true that primary leadership will never exceed more than the few? Probably. But, these sort of traditionalists forget that Aristotle also claimed that republic, or politeia, rule by the many, was also a legitimate political regime.

What distinguishes an elite, as Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira underlines, is being disposed to sacrifice its own interests in order to serve the common good which is the highest interest of society (Nobiltà ed élites tradizionali analoghe nelle allocuzioni di Pio XII al Patriziato e alla Nobiltà, Marzorati, Milano 1993). Pius XII calls being “an elite, is not only through blood or lineage, but most of all through works and sacrifice, creatively carrying out services to all social communities.” (Discourse to the Patriciate and the Roman Nobility, January 11, 1951).

This isn't the distinction that Aristotle offers, who instead focuses on the measure of virtue. One could say that because the elites are virtuous, they are disposed to sacrifice their own interests in order to serve the common good, but, again, what if the so-called elites aren't the only ones who possess political virtue?

Secondly, rendering services, is that another way of talking about some form of "servant leadership"? Or making sacrifices? Is the word "sacrifice" loaded with a Romantic or some other false connotation here? Their private goods, perhaps, but the common good includes the good of the elites, or any other virtuous group.

Fake News?

Do you not know the Miles Morales Spider-Man is a SJW character?

Post has been revised.

We don't need movie critics now, we need people who are aware of the culture war and cautioning parents before they buy some mass entertainment product designed to subvert their culture and destroy any sort of traditional identity, and this is what Marvel, Disney, and Sony Pictures want to do. Why give them the money to continuing to denigrate your culture and people?

Parents, boycott mainstream movies or do your own research on what is being sold to you.

Maybe city-dwellers won't care but if they don't, they just show again that they are lost.

An Outsider's Observations of Japan

Kawaii, Somber Japan by LINH DINH

The nice extreme of the effects of urbanization.

We’ve all heard about young Japanese recluses, the hikikomori, but did you know that at least 43% of Japanese between 18 and 34 are virgins? A third had never even been on a single date.

“How did Japanese go from bathing together, men and women, young and old, to being mostly alone?” I asked. No one could answer.

Writer Mieko Kawakami said that Japan’s previous tranquility and equilibrium were achieved only with much sacrifice by women, and the continuing breakdown of traditions is actually freeing women from onerous roles. Probing this theme, she is working on a novel about a woman having a baby without a man.

Many Japanese now live alone, then often die without anyone noticing, sometimes for weeks. Family members don’t call or even email them. Through a friend, I was able to visit an octogenarian who rarely left his messy apartment. His is the generation that built contemporary Japan. In the same complex, we passed a door whose letter and peep slots had been sealed by tape, to prevent the dogged stench of putrefaction from seeping out. It’s a common sight there. With its stigma of sordid death, the apartment will be hard to rent, thus adding to the glut of empty houses in Japan.

Catholic Classical Education in the News

And "traditional" or "conservative" Roman Catholics may be happy by the fact.

Lyceum School in Cleveland: This School Choir May Have Just Made History

Having browsed the photos I noticed part of the choir was composed of teenaged-women, presumably students at the school; and I confirmed with the information provided at the website that it is indeed coeducational. Catholic coeducation at the secondary level is still alive and well, even among certain "traditionalist" and "conservative" Catholic circles.

This is an institutional failure to address the first principles of education.

I suppose this phenomena will not disappear until continuing collapse wipes out most of the schools.

A Necessary Act of Inculturation?

Our Lady of Guadalupe in the Byzantine Rite

Should the supposed feast of the patroness of the Americas (rather than just Ibero-America) be observed by the BCA? Why isn't it sufficient for the United States to observe the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (or the Feast of the Conception of St. Anna)? It is not even clear to me that the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe is important to the rest of Ibero-America, rather than just to Mexico. Was the declaration of Our Lady of Guadalupe as the patroness of the Americas by Pope John Paul II, in conjunction with the earlier "synod" of bishops, motivated by political or patriarchate concerns?

But would there be much socialization in the big cities between the WASPs and the continental European immigrants (or the children of European immigrants)? And even if there was such socialization, would they talk about politics?
