« It's probably nothing.... | Main | Geller: "We smoked out a terror network, »

For some reason, we have allowed the malcontent to assume moral prestige.


We praise as "ideals" what are nothing more than fantasies--a world of perpetual peace, brotherhood, justice, or any other will-o'-the-wisp that has lured men toward the Gulag.
The malcontent can be spotted in his little habits of speech: He calls language and nationality "barriers" when the conservative, more appreciatively, recognizes them as cohesives that make social life possible. He damns as "apathy" an ordinary indifference to politics that may really be a healthy contentment. He praises as "compassion" what the conservative earthily sees as a program of collectivization. He may even assert as "rights" what tradition has regarded as wrongs. Pensees - Notes for the Reactionary of Tomorrow

Your Say

Malcontents are nothing but whiners. They vibe: LOSER.

Mental masturbation is as far as they ever get.

Liberals believe none of the things they lecture the rest of us about.

Smokey is correct.

"None squeals so loudly as the LIEberal forced to live under the rules he professes for others."
--gs, 2000

How to test a man's (or woman's) spine: When he suggests *we* should do something tell him to go do it himself, and watch his reaction.

First, he will offer lame assed excuses as to why he can't.

If you dismiss his excuses he will get emotional and personal and ask you "What are YOU gonna do about it.", as if his idea had some merit in the first place.

Prodded to the next level he will resort to childish insults and name calling and when you push him over the edge he may evoke you to hit him in the face with a table lamp, chair, or something.

The *we* people seem incapable of thinking more than 1 step ahead, always living in the here and now, much like herd animals gathered in the feedlot, single filed to their destiny.

The link to the Sobran essay should be posted at neo's and everywhere it makes sense when it make sense to post it.

It is pretty much perfect.
