Einstein, physics and the memory hole

George Orwell wrote of a memory hole, where inconvenient facts end up if ‘they’ don’t want you to remember them. Even if we don’t accept that Einstein was actually a plagiarist, he’s somehow remembered whilst his contemporaries lie forgotten – including earlier relativity theorists.

The point of interest in this book review isn’t whether Einstein was a plagiarist, but the creation of his popular image. Somehow the image of Einstein has been promoted in the popular mind whilst his contemporaries were deliberately sent down the ‘memory hole’, into their present state of obscurity.

Westernised elitists vs populist traditionalists in Syria

Thanks to Facebook, the ‘enemies of freedom’ in the Arab world might have taken a back seat to Joseph Kony, but what are the Arab revolts against ‘dictators’ like Assad really about? The Western media presents them as popular support for Western democracy; but is that the real motivation for the opposition?

The media and the Toulouse shootings

Its been reported on the news that over in France an unknown gunman has arrived at a Jewish school and opened fire, killing a rabbi and three students. The phrase ‘anti-Semitism’ is predictably invoked in the media, although the killer and his actual motivations are as yet unknown.

The God of Tolerance

I left one of my best comments over at Alt Right:

You do not need to justify the actions of people such as the unknown Toulouse gunman or Anders Brevik, nor agree with their politics (we don’t even know what motivates the Toulouse gunman yet), to realise such actions are a response to our society – the first stirrings of a civilisational gag reflex.

Of course the media misrepresented Brevik as an extremist motivated by racial hatred and Christian fundamentalism, when the real Brevik is an anti-racist opposed to Islam because he’s a secular ‘cultural Christian’ – if Brevik can be called a religious fanatic, then so can Richard Dawkins because he likes singing Christmas carols every year.

The murder of Pim Fortuyn by Volkert ven der Graaf was deliberately misattributed to animal rights activism, a mostly leftist movement but one with some links to the feared ‘far right’ (ie Savitri Devi), when the assassin was in fact motivated by a misguided desire to defend Dutch Muslims from “persecution”.

The infamous ‘Unabomber’ Theodore Kaczynski is a man still considered by many as a left wing nutcase who wishes to abolish all civilisation through the efforts of the media. Yet his ‘Unabomber Manifesto, properly entitled “Industrial Society and Its Future”, is actually a devastating attack upon the political left and the modern society that creates and enables them whilst dismantling the family, rather than some straw man anti-human screed.

The Olympic Park Bomber Eric Rudolf is mispresented by the media as an ‘anti-woman’ religious nutcase who blew up abortion clinics, another straw man created in order to scapegoat America’s ‘religious right’ that hasn’t got the guts. But Rudolf, although a Christian, prefers the philosophy of Freidrich “God is dead” Nietzsche to the Bible, and his views on abortion are merely part of a far wider critique of modern American society – after all, the Olympic Park Stadium was not an abortuary.

Do we see a pattern here?

I won’t believe anything ‘they’ say about about the Toulouse gunman at face value.

Britain’s population problem

Choicetards and the left speak of overpopulation to justify selfish, lifestyles in Britain, but native Britons are actually subject to the real demographic problem now affecting many countries – we’re faced with an aging population through our family size having decreased to below replacement level.

Westerners love to bash Japan for protectionism and their inspiring, ‘xenophobic’ sense of national pride. But Japan’s real problem is their aging population.

Sometimes the most interesting thing about online articles seems to be the comments to them. According to ‘Nergol’:

I’m a serious Catholic, and as pro-life as anybody you’re going to find, but blaming legalized abortion and widely available birth control for Japan’s demographic decline relative to other nations is somewhat unconvincing. One in 15 or so Japanese women has had an abortion. In the UK, about 30% of women have. In the US, it’s about 40%. Japan also only legalized the birth control pill in the last decade or so. So while I’m not saying that isn’t a factor, it doesn’t explain the collapse relative to those other nations.

Incidentally, the statistic for the UK is wrong; only one fifth of British pregnancies actually end by a purposefully induced abortion, and about a third of those are at least the third abortion for the woman. But whatever the moral objections to abortion might be, there’s a need to ask why individuals make antinatalist choices in the first place. Which kind of circumstances contribute to smaller family sizes?

Is modern society actually suicidal? Is there a way we can stop ourselves going extinct by autogenocide, like the Japanese seem to be headed?

Is anti-Islam always politically incorrect?

Isn’t it funny how criticism of Islam is ‘politically incorrect’, yet also framed so carefully not to offend anyone the left likes?

In my opinion, people should learn to look at things in three dimensons.

Home-grown freedoms are the strongest
Charles Moore

I’ve left my two cents in a Disqus comment.

Theo Van Gogh was scum like the sleazy Pim Fortuyn, and I ain’t no anti-racis’.

In their idealism and abstract language, coming from educations and backgrounds far from reality, they thought no degree of cultural difference could prevent millions of Moslems from assimilating into their multicult utopia – indeed, they assumed the Moslems would *want* to forget their culture, and buy into the dream.

Right now its obviously gone all wrong, as Moslem immigrants defend their own culture in the West, just as Westerners ought to have done long ago.

Did the Moslems create the immigration policy that brought them here?

Was it Moslems or the left who’ve been responsible for so much censorship?

Keeping Islam here benefits the multicult; anti-Islam benefits the fags and the feminists. The left realise they can’t have it both ways after all, but they can benefit either way by controlling the ‘free’ speech they’re protecting.

Schmidt said “Sovereign is he who decides on the exception.” Isn’t it odd that all criticism of Islam must be framed in terms hostile to religion in general, to be acceptable? That you can bash the Islamic presence in the west for the religion’s perspective on homosexuality or the burqa, but not mention HBD, or demographic replacement?

Really, hypocrites like Theo Van Gogh are every bit as politically correct as the people who brought Islam into the Netherlands – and promoted his sexual tastes.

Rightist environmentalism

This article is pretty much the sort of thing I find appealing, but it still appears to be wishful thinking when the conservative mindset is averse to attempting positive change, because its instinct is to keep things as they presently are, to avoid the necessary radicalism.

If people are planning to build housing on Green Belt land, we should remember two reasons why there’s a demand for more housing in the first place – immigration and people owning more than one home.

More on Kony 2012: what’s really happening in Uganda?

Like a lot of people, I haven’t got very much idea of the background to Ugandan politics and Kony 2012. how many people actually understand whats going on over there? Idi Amin was made famous in the Last king of Scotland but have you ever heard of Apollo Milton Obote and his ‘moderate’ reign of terror over there?

And why’s the Kony bashing started at this present place and time, when he’s been around for years? Has the discovery of oil in Africa got anything to do with a new, pro-war viral campaign aimed at the demographic most likely to oppose foreign interventionism?
