“Have Heart; For We are on the Cusp of Great Cultural Revolution”

Our culture has been under intense attack by a cabal of globalist elites. Western Cultural Revolution starts NOW.

“The times in which we are living are more polarizing than ever in recent memory. Thus, people are separated by extremes, reactivity, and heated emotion.  But, at the same time, a Great Awakening is under way, and it is important to highlight some important points, re-calibrate, and focus our directive moving forward.”

A provocative essay, yes, but interesting, and worthy of consideration. Much of what Ms Emerick says rings true. I have said for some time and in a variety of fora that the contemporary push for “diversity” and “multiculturalism” is actually anti-diversity and will lead, eventually, to a drab and oppressive monoculture.

True diversity, and true multiculturalism, is about protecting and preserving the particularity and distinctiveness of individual cultures – and those primarily in their historic and geographic context – not attempting to forcibly blend all cultures and ethnicities into one drab, muddy mess, like indiscriminately mixing the colours on an artist’s palette.

One goes to a buffet to enjoy the variety of foods presented: one does not generally dump them in a blender at the end, and sip the resulting slurry through a straw. The same holds true with cultures and ethnicities, which should be a vibrant tapestry, woven from bright colours and distinctive strands, not a coarsely-woven stretch of burlap with no discernible pattern.

And of course, as a person of European – primarily North-Western European – heritage myself, I am most concerned with what I see as a concerted and vigorous effort to dilute, disparage, and do away with the history, cultural distinctives, and even the ethnic particularities of the people of the West: Europeans, both at home in their European homeland, and abroad, in the great European diaspora which includes the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

Fortunately, as Ms Emerick points out, more people across the world – and especially the Western world – are beginning to wake up to the importance of preserving one’s own people, and their history and cultural heritage. Of course, that only makes the forces of destruction and suppression more hysterical and violent in their attempts to force their ideology on the rest of us. Like ISIS chiseling away at or blowing up priceless and irreplaceable antiquities, they want to do as much damage as possible in the time they have left.

Their tactics range from the use of slurs like “far right” (which to them, describes anyone to the right of hard-Left), “Nazi” or “fascist,” “racist,” “xenophobic,” and many more, to vandalism and destruction or removal (sometimes by governmental bodies that should know better) of statues, monuments, plaques, and other iconography, renaming of streets, schools, etc., to outright physical attacks.

The most extreme of the latter thus far has been the mass shooting in Las Vegas by a left-wing activist, against people he apparently figured were “safely” conservative. But of course, the riots in Ferguson, Baltimore, and elsewhere also fall into this category. And attacks on monuments and other iconography have moved – as I have long expected and predicted – from Confederate icons to the likes of Francis Scott Key, “Teddy” Roosevelt, and even George Washington.

The only bright side to this is that the more aggressive and extreme these attacks become, the more people will wake up to the danger we are all collectively in by this attempt to re-write history and suppress anyone who stands against the dangerous ideology of radical globalism and demographic blending. To quote Ms Emerick again:

“​A cabal of globalist elites has a very dark future in store for us, and it is their agenda that has been guiding our media and education for several decades now. But, we are NOT willing to go like sheep to the slaughter. We are NOT willing see the cultures of our ancestors washed away. ALL of the people of this world have a right to protect and preserve their cultural heritage. …

“We in the West have an incredible legacy to be proud of.  While these cultural Marxists sneer at “old white men,” instead we must look to our glorious past and remind everyone of the greatness that our Folk have been capable of. While the globalists push destruction of our culture, we must face it by celebrating our culture with more gusto than ever before. When they misrepresent our history, we must tell our OWN story with pride.”

To which I can only say, Amen!

A Brilliant Defense of Christendom – Crisis Magazine

Many believe that Christendom was a rigid and brutal order. In medieval times, we are told that tyranny ruled, and the Church and the nascent State were constant rivals in the pursuit of dominance.

So many modern historians have cynically reduced this period when Christianity prevailed to a time of cultural darkness and violent power struggles. Such people fail to understand the Christian order since they equate it with tyranny. They judge Christendom from the premises of our present disorders, in which people only seek their self-interest...

That is the problem with those who criticize Christendom. They look rigidly upon the past with modern mechanistic criteria. They cannot think outside our Enlightenment box. Hence, they accuse anyone who thinks otherwise of idealizing the past.

Dr. Jones is far from idealizing the medieval past, but he does present a vision of Christendom beyond the oversimplified charts that box in our vision. We get a glimpse of the real Christian order. When properly understood, this Christian order is very appealing and refreshing.

The Greeks really do have near-mythical origins, ancient DNA reveals | Science | AAAS

Ever since the days of Homer, Greeks have long idealized their Mycenaean “ancestors” in epic poems and classic tragedies that glorify the exploits of Odysseus, King Agamemnon, and other heroes who went in and out of favor with the Greek gods.

Although these Mycenaeans were fictitious, scholars have debated whether today’s Greeks descend from the actual Mycenaeans, who created a famous civilization that dominated mainland Greece and the Aegean Sea from about 1600 B.C.E. to 1200 B.C.E., or whether the ancient Mycenaeans simply vanished from the region.

Now, ancient DNA suggests that living Greeks are indeed the descendants of Mycenaeans, with only a small proportion of DNA from later migrations to Greece…

The title of this piece is a touch misleading, in that it may seem to imply that the ancient Greeks really were descended from the gods, or at least their heroes were. But although the truth is somewhat more prosaic, it is no less interesting!

In addition to the usefulness to historians, archaeologists, mythologists, and students of literature of confirming that there was and is a Mycenaean – and indeed, Minoan – connection with modern Greeks, and a very significant one, this also is further evidence that ancient myths and legends, originally carried down through the oral traditions of a people and only later put to writing, may nonetheless have striking validity.

This is not news to many of us, of course; but it may be to others, who have bought into the popular misrepresentation of “myth” as a synonym for “fallacy.” Leaving aside the 19th centuries discoveries of such men as the highly controversial Heinrich Schliemann (Troy) and the brilliant but political Arthur Evans (Minoan Crete), it is remarkable how many biblical accounts have been either confirmed or at least rendered markedly more probable by archaeological discoveries.

Nowadays, it seems that genetics is following in those hallowed footsteps!
