I don't know about shameless. I found it to be pretty interesting. Also he had plenty of sources to back up his re-interpretation of history.

Professor Patrick Deneen: Nationalism as we know it was created by progressive thinkers from the 1890's and early 1900's which was a change for the worse in many ways.

The challenge for the right going forward is to build a "new nationalism" a conservative nationalism.

The thing that gets me is that 14 days before the first case appeared, 300 US military personnel arrived in Wuhan for the Military World Games.

Was the 2020 Wuhan Coronavirus an engineered biological attack on China by America for geopolitical advantage?

"This should not be a trivial concern. To accuse the United States of doing so is not to be done lightly. All that is presented herein is, of course, speculative. I sincerely wish, hope and desire that it is not the case at all."

... I think our governments will remain virtuous for many centuries; as long as they are chiefly agricultural; and this will be as long as there shall be vacant lands in any part of America. when they get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, they will become corrupt as in Europe."

I think this is a big piece in the what went wrong puzzle.

"Cultivators of the earth are the most valuable citizens. They are the most vigorous, the most independant, the most virtuous, & they are tied to their country & wedded to it's liberty & interests by the most lasting bonds. ...

David Brooks: The Nuclear Family Was a Mistake

"This is the story of our times—the story of the family, once a dense cluster of many siblings and extended kin, fragmenting into ever smaller and more fragile forms. ... If you want to summarize the changes in family structure over the past century, the truest thing to say is this: We’ve made life freer for individuals and more unstable for families."

Pete Buttigieg: The New Model, Same As The Old Model

theamericansun.com/2020/02/10/

"A quick view of Mayor Pete is that he is a product a la Obama who is a non-entity for the system to use as a puppet. Just consider the idea of a 38 year old mayor of a small city running for president. That on its surface should inspire guffaws, not 25% of the vote of a swing state. He has no accomplishments. He does have a carefully structured resume that checks boxes for a run at the presidency."

Michiana Access TV, Citizens for Community Media: E. Michael Jones and black faith leaders discuss Mayor Pete Buttegieg, his shortcomings during his tenure as mayor and the implications for a bid for the presidency.

Jimmy Carter took a call from Donald Trump worried about China "getting ahead of us"

newsweek.com/donald-trump-jimm?

Carter: "China has not wasted a single penny on war, and that's why they're ahead of us. In almost every way." US has only had 16 years of peace in its 242-year history, "the most warlike nation in the history of the world," Because of the US tendency to force others to "adopt our American principles."

... To kill somebody by silence is a very elegant kind of murder which in practice yields the same dividends as a real assassination--an assassination which, in addition, leaves the assassin with good conscience... Rare are those who silence their opponents for fun." -Alain De Benoist

"The tyranny of modern liberalism creates the illusion inherent in its own principles. It proclaims itself for liberty and cries out to defend 'human rights' at the moment when it oppresses the most. The dictatorship of the media & the 'spiral of silence' appear to be almost as effective in depriving the citizenry of its freedom by imprisonment. In the West, there is no need to kill: suffice it to cut someone's microphone. ...

Zero HP Lovecraft discusses Woke Capital:

"Attempts to flatten hierarchy are intrinsically unstable. A new one always emerges, sometimes, ironically, based on 'who can flatten hierarchy the best'

We live in exactly this world, where an old social hierarchy (patriarchal, nationalistic, industrious, officially ended in 1964) is used as a model to establish a new hierarchy built on 'equality': the more you are gay, brown, or disabled, the more equal you are."
