Brett Stevens interview at the Association for the Protection of the Lebanese Heritage

Conservatives preserve the permanent things by holding on to that which not only works, but creates a transcendent beauty in life. This is why we idealize “the good, the beautiful and the true” and is why we conserve these things where we find them, resisting a tidal wave of human individualism and short-sighted solipsism. The…

Lawrence Auster 1949-2013

Early this morning, one of the brightest lights of right-wing thought moved on from this world.

Checking in

The party’s objectives are: The objectives of the British Freedom Party shall be to defend and restore the freedoms, traditions, unity, identity, democracy and independence…

For those who are joining our discussions, a quick note on how to use the commenting system. As stated in another post, there are no “rules” per se but there is a requirement that content be constructive, productive or otherwise informative. This is flexible and impersonal. If your comment is off-topic but in some way…
