Hungary’s Viktor Orbán has launched a stunning denunciation of globalism, declaring that the “true spirit of the age” points to a resurgence of conservative values centred on country, family, and tradition.

Viktor Orbán, Prime Minister of Hungary, is not to everyone’s taste. He can be brash and blunt, has a disdain for political correctness that I by-and-large share, and like many or most politicians, does not seem to be averse to taking actions and making deals that benefit himself or his party. But unlike many – again, perhaps most – European politicians (and many American ones, also), he is committed to his country and his people.

And in a world where billionaire globalists like Soros and his ilk – the “globalist elites, the bureaucrats who serve them, the politicians in their pay, and the agents of the… networks that embody their interests” Orbán mentions – are attempting to inaugurate a “post-Christian and post-national era,” dedication to one’s own people and nation cover a multitude of sins. At least in my view!

Orbán said NGOs tied to George Soros, the billionaire open borders campaigner, “have penetrated all the influential forums of European decision-making.”

He described how they “operate like the activists of the Department for Agitation and Propaganda of the old Soviet Communist Party.

“We old war horses recognise them by their smell. Although the Soros troops use somewhat more refined methods, they nonetheless want to tell us what to do, what to say, what to think – and even how we should see ourselves.”

The former anti-communist campaigner explained: “Migration is not the goal of the Soros Plan, but merely its means.

“Millions of people … are being encouraged to come to Europe; indeed they are even being transported here, in order to debilitate nations and deliver the coup de grâce to Christian culture.”

Looking at the situation from my point of view, as an interested observer here in the U.S., I cannot disagree. Whether it is an organized plan, or merely opportunistic exploitation – or, most likely, a bit of each – the mass migration of the present era is clearly being viewed by corporate globalists, plutocrats, and modern-day robber barons as a golden opportunity to disrupt the ties of nation, culture, social and ethnic unity, and religion that have heretofore stood in the way (though less emphatically, in recent decades) of their desire to transform the world into a hive of drones – producers and consumers, “whose god is their belly” (Philippians 3:19), with the aforementioned plutocrats on top.

As a side-effect of this – collateral damage, if you will – Orbán accurate points out that

“the Soros Plan also seriously endangers the security of our everyday lives… In Europe’s [multicultural] countries, acts of terrorism have become regular occurrences, crime rates are increasing, violence against women has escalated, and anti-Semitism is emerging again.”

“This is what we must prevent, and this is the threat against which we must defend the country. So when we say that we must defend Hungary, we declare that we must defend work, our families, security, the authority of our laws, our achievements … we must also defend our future.”

And not only in Hungary, or even Europe! But he also offers hope:

“We see tens of millions of Europeans working hard and struggling day in, day out to keep themselves and their families afloat.

We see how they yearn for security and order.

“We see how they cleave ever more firmly to their cultural identity, and fight every day for every square metre of their normal European life,” he said.

“Reality, flesh-and-blood people, real-life instincts, real human desires, dreams and hopes will conquer the globalist elite still ruling Europe today. And they will make Europe – and within it Hungary – great again.”

That is an outcome earnestly to be hoped for, in my opinion!

A Political Refugee From the Global Village : Many things will die out with my generation


The young people who wanted to change the world in 1968 are now in their late 60s and created the [contemporary] Western world. They didn’t do a good job of it…

Very much that is taken for granted in England and the developed world started in the 1960s. Affluence, motorways, celebrity worship, mass immigration, feminism, classlessness, consumerism, rock, the end of colonialism, the idea that traditions are oppressive, legal abortion and of course the sexual revolution.

I am not quite as pessimistic as the author of this piece – I remember my mother’s frequent reminder, that “God is still in charge,” and I also agree with the anonymous comment that,

“All is not yet lost. I predict a big cultural revival is one the way. Whether or not organized religion will play any part of it is entirely up to the Church leaders (who seem perpetually stuck in the 60’s mindset). This revival is already starting to happen. It’s led by those young people who are smart enough to see the damage their elders have caused and are anxious for change, even revolutionary change, if necessary. The old order is on its last leg, thank God. A new one is waiting to be born.”

But we cannot take the rebirth for granted. We are, in a sense, tottering on the knife-edge of a precipice, and things could go either way… And while God IS ultimately in charge, I believe, His grant of free will to His human creations means that our arrogance and stupidity can screw things up for a long time!

As a Christian and a Christian cleric, of course I understand that nothing human can ever be “forever.” But that does not relieve us from the vocation, indeed the duty, to build, to create, for the ages – so that future generations will look upon our works with awe, with wonder, and with gratitude – and not merely for the present, or for present whims and fashions.

France: A Decomposing Civilization

France’s authorities and elites are tearing up, piece by piece, the country’s historical, religious and cultural legacy so that nothing remains. A nation dispossessed of its identity will see its inner strength broken.

Ah! Ma belle France, ma pauvre France! Terre de Charles Martel et Charlemagne. Ce qui vous est arrivé?

(Ah! My beautiful France, my poor France! Land of Charles Martel and Charlemagne. What has happened to you?)

As I have commented previously, more than once and in more than one forum, a nation, a culture, a society has this in common with a plant: cut off from its roots, it will wither and die.

What is happening to France is, or should be, a cautionary tale for what many among the so-called “elite” want to happen to the U.S. – and indeed, with the current attacks against historic statues, monuments, plaques, flags, and other iconography of our past, the assault is well under way.

Richard Dawkins: Islam Is ‘The Most Evil Religion In The World’ | Interface Institute

I am no fan of Richard Dawkins, by any means. But it is interesting, to say the least, that although this über-“liberal” militant atheist has been largely lionized by the Left through decades of criticizing Christianity, the “PC police” jump on him when he dares to turn his critique to Islam!

Do they really think they wouldn’t be the first against the wall, or lined up on their knees to be beheaded, if the likes of ISIS or Iran’s “Revolutionary Guard” were ever to come to power in the West?

“In a speech at the Cheltenham Science Festival in the U.K., Dawkins slammed the moral idiocy of cultural relativism, arguing against the ill-conceived notion that all religions are more or less the same.

“’It’s tempting to say all religions are bad, and I do say all religions are bad, but it’s a worse temptation to say all religions are equally bad because they’re not,’ he stated.

“Refusing to submit to de facto blasphemy laws, Dawkins then dropped the bomb.

“’If you look at the actual impact that different religions have on the world it’s quite apparent that at present the most evil religion in the world has to be Islam,’ he said in no uncertain terms.”

Interesting, as a side note, that he uses the term “evil,” which is a theological term as well as a moral category (in the ancient world, from which our ideas of morality and ethics came, there was no clear-cut distinction between the two, as we sometimes like to pretend there is today).

If there were no objective moral standard, how could one speak of Islam as “evil”? It would simply be one of the best ideologies, at present, at achieving dominance – at least in certain spheres. And if there is a moral standard, where did it come from, in the absence of a Divine Lawgiver…?

Just sayin’…!

“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.

Source: Have Heart; For We are on the Cusp of Great Cultural Revolution

“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!

Multiculturalism Is Splintering the West

Multiculturalism is leading to the “partition,” the separation of European societies.

Anyone who claims to be surprised by this is either lying, or has had their head in the sand for years. As I have commented more than once, in this and other fora, a proper multiculturalism is a recognition of the rights of diverse peoples to pursue their own destinies within their respective historical, cultural, and geographic spheres, both honouring and preserving the distinctiveness of cultures (while allowing for trade and legitimate cultural exchange). “Multiculturalism” defined as the enforced mingling of cultures cannot be anything but divisive and damaging, especially to the “host” (imposed-upon) cultures.

In the field of ecology, one often speaks of invasive aliens: plants and animals that move (or are brought) into an area to which they are not native, and in which they often choke out the indigenous flora and fauna, ultimately leading to a decrease of diversity in the ecosystem – even though their presence may have appeared, temporarily, to increase its diversity. Examples abound, and include multiflora rose, autumn olive, Japanese stiltgrass, water hyacinth, and the infamous kudzu in the plant kingdom, and starlings, European sparrows, nutria, mute swans, and Asian carp in the animal kingdom.

Why are we not able to comprehend that this principle applies equally to human ecosystems?
