High finance is a bubble.
Lawrence Auster: "Hey, I’ve got the solution to this problem! Let’s invade black America and convert them to democracy!" Perhaps we could start the invasion on the pretense of protecting civilians . . .
We’ll see what happens in Wisconsin, but the public sector workers haven’t lost yet.
In a couple of posts on this blog (American Diversity Outreach and Permanent Revolution), we’ve* tried to make the case that the U.S. comprises the locus for the spread of diversity, "democracy", and in general making the world safe for the project of the globalists. Other nations – such as in one of our examples, France – still have a residual, nearly reactionary sense of self, which various organs of the U.S. such as the State Department feel the need to break down. The globalist project of democracy and diversity, which effectively means the breaking down of Western nations plus one or two in the East, such as Japan, cannot succeed so long as some of these nations maintain a stubborn sense of self and of particularity.
The Libertarian Alliance: "The Left-Libertarian will extend his claim by classifying the voluntary organization of individuals into racially exclusive communities as a form of authoritarianism; this is argued on the ground that their implied exclusion of those outside their race is a violation of their right to free movement. However, according to Libertarian theory, if property is privately as the basis for free association, then this includes the right to not associate."
Members of the US Congress are feeling left out of the reindeer games in Libya. It seems they actually believe the illusion that sovereign power resides in the three branches of the US Federal Government.
Three groups made the decision to intervene in Libya: the media, non-governmental organizations, and the State Department. The rubber stamp from the United Nations (which merely indicated that China and Russia, the last potential outposts of independent decision making outside the United States, had no material objection to the matter) was superfluous.
Borepatch on "scientific" "progress"
On free trade: "The point here is that while trade has been hugely important to Asian development success stories, that hasn’t meant “free trade” it’s often meant export-promotion strategies."
