Maybe Multiculturalism Isn't so Bad?

The Satanic Temple has decided to place a diorama of the fall of Satan in the Florida Capitol. While certainly making a bold move in the battle for religious liberty that will cause religious folks like me to scurry away in terror, their glorious masterstroke has one flaw. While their desire was to scandalize us with their edgy views, all they've done is provided us with another (albeit tacky) reminder that our God is better than the one they (albeit tongue-in-cheek) serve.

Maybe the Muslims will step up to the plate next and put up a diorama of Lepanto, or Muhammad standing before Christ at the Last Judgment? Tis the season!

Mr. Dragonofski requested a report on #CrimingWhileWhite. As always, friends, your wish is my command. Just so long as it doesn't involve anything too obscene or boring.

While it should come as no surprise to you that I do not possess, do not want to possess, and will not possess a Twitter account, I grudgingly acknowledge it's place in our society as the teeming collective unconscious of the Millennial generation. Its 140 character limit on speech mirrors exactly the average American's shallow engagement on the issues. 

By it's nature, all dialectic is pared away, leaving raw tribalist rhetoric, which is, realistically, the best you can expect people to offer on any discussion of public import. Some may admire Laconic wit, but after considering that its originators built their society around child abuse, one should foster in themselves a healthy distrust for the Lakedaimonians.

Breaking the Silence

If you follow this blog, you might be wondering why I've been so silent lately. The recent elections and the even more recent amnesty would seem to be fertile ground for comment, given what I've written on prior to this. What could be compelling my silence? It's certainly not that I've gained the humility to shut up, not by a long shot...

The Unexpected Enlightenment of Rachel Griffin - L. Jagi Lamplighter

Overall: 8/10
Characters: 8.5/10
Plot: 8/10
Pacing: 6/10
Message: 8/10

It's been a while since I posted, and even longer since I posted a book review, so I wanted to treat you all to the most recent notch on my Kindle: L. Jagi Lamplighter's The Unexpected Enlightenment of Rachel Griffin. While not quite a "Young Adult" any more, I found Ms. Lamplighter's writing more than engrossing enough for any age. Drawn in by the preview, I ponied up my $2.99 and dove right in! I was not at all disappointed in that decision - Unexpected Enlightenment  was well worth it!

In going to write my review, I found that Ms. Lamplighter's husband, John C. Wright (also an author), had posted a link to another review of this book by Pierce T. Oka at Dogma & Dragons. Reading it, I found I agreed with many of Mr. Oka's points, and thus recommend you read his take along with my own to get a fuller picture. That said, let's dive right in!

Idolatry: Hidden but not Harmless

Possibly the most pervasive and dangerous sin in today's world is idolatry. Other sins may be bolder, more in our faces, more glamorous, but it is idolatry that saps the majority of our spiritual strength away right from the heart. If you think yourself immune, then you, more than anyone else, need to read on.

The primary pitfall of idolatry is how easily it slips our notice. Of all of our sins, it is the one we are most likely to justify: to consider to be simply a priority or a preference and not the paramount spiritual danger which it is. We make excuses for the worldly things that eclipse God in our devotion, seeing nothing wrong at all with the way we push Him to the sidelines.

Apparently both the First and Second Amendments no longer apply so long as its utilization is "insensitive." Yes folks, so long as someone "feels threatened," expulsion is on the table. Does that sound like the "Home of Brave" to you?

Now it is true that the US Supreme Court held in San Antonio Independent School Dist. v. Rodriguez  that, "Public education is not a "right" granted to individuals by the Constitution." (Plyler v. Doe, 457 US 202 at 221) Yet, as Brown v. Board of Education states, "Such an opportunity, where the state has undertaken to provide it, is a right which must be made available to all on equal terms." (347 US 483 at 493) As such, even without a positive right to an education, we can still see that educational access is an issue that the Supreme Court doesn't hold lightly.

The Left Eats its Own

Bill Maher continues to face the fallout from expressing his view of Islam. This view, of course, being similar to those held almost unanimously throughout the west prior to the modern era. Coincidentally, this view is also that required to make a serious attempt at a sustainable leftist society. Burkas and beheadings most assuredly don't respect the feminist imperative!

However, these views, while time honored, and useful to the goals of his class, are not the views of Islam sent down by diktat from the high command. As such, Maher is now persona non grata to some of whom he would otherwise be a rockstar. To think, Bill Maher protested against at Berkeley!

The War on Truth

In today's edition of the war on truth, the term "chickenshit" has now been redefined as unwilling to sell out one's own country for the plaudits of foreigners. On the other hand, non-"aspergery" people show their amazing social savvy by ignoring the will of their own people in order to serve the supposed best interests of another people, thousands of miles away.

As President Obama said just recently,
"We have to keep in mind that if we're discouraging our health care workers, who are prepared to make these sacrifices, from traveling to these places in need, then we're not doing our job in terms of looking after our own public health and safety,"

A bunch of people milling about in other peoples' business? An attempt to overrule the moral law by sheer numbers? An ineffectual and empty gesture that will either be ignored or subverted by the entrenched elites? Yup, that's democracy all right...

There has long been an unfortunate confusion between making distinctions of phylum and performing science. Science, of course, is the practice of determining natural laws via testable, falsifiable hypotheses. Science says that a bear has x number of chromosomes.

Making phylum, on the other hand, is a means of characterizing and speaking about our discoveries. It does not discriminate between true and false, testable or not testable, and falsifiable or not falsifiable, it merely shows that a distinction is conceivable. Thus the phylum "bear" is distinguished from others by a set of common characteristics not shared by outsiders. In turn, differences between individuals in the phylum "bear" are conceptually deemphasized.

"70+ Celebrities Who Are Christians"

Christianity has apparently receded so far from the general consciousness in the English-speaking world that's list of 70+ Celebrities Who Are Christians requires a short description of this religion. If you were unaware of this obscure sect, our host, "Celebrity Lists" tells us, "A Christian is an individual who believes in the teachings of Jesus Christ." Also, in case you don't know of any successful members of this upstart, fly-by-night operation, we are reassured that "Many famous actors, musicians, and athletes practice Christianity today." The more you know, huh?

Biological Warfare

The use of biological warfare has long been considered a breach of International Law. The Protocol for the Prohibition of the Use of Asphyxiating, Poisonous or Other Gases, and of Bacteriological Methods of Warfare signed in Geneva, Switzerland on 17 June 1925 states in part:
"Whereas the use in war of asphyxiating, poisonous or other gases, and of all analogous liquids materials or devices, has been justly condemned by the general opinion of the civilized world; and
Whereas the prohibition of such use has been declared in Treaties to which the majority of Powers of the world are Parties; and
To the end that this prohibition shall be universally accepted as a part of International Law, binding alike the conscience and the practice of nations;[...]
That the High Contracting Parties, so far as they are not already Parties to Treaties prohibiting such use, accept this prohibition, agree to extend this prohibition to the use of bacteriological methods of warfare and agree to be bound as between themselves according to the terms of this declaration."
There are currently 138 states that have signed this protocol, including Mexico and Guatemala.

"Western Values" and Islam

The media, these days, engage in the endless propagation of outright falsehood. This is no more clear then where the topic of discussion touches on some minority. (Minority, of course, in terms of the demographics of the civilized Western countries people actually want to live in, not the world at large. Liberals rarely acknowledge this world, or that anything there matters.) If one is a minority, the media will air almost any collection of lies that you can deliver with a straight face and, if the demoralized men of the West offer up any resistance, relentlessly attack the "racists" who disagree.

Rabia Chaudry recently wrote an interesting piece on the recent Bill Maher/Ben Affleck Islam dustup. The interesting part comes from the fact that nearly everything she says actively contradicts her point, which is that Islam is supposedly in line with Western liberal values.

While your host may also be said to be not in line with Western liberal values, and takes no small bit of pride in that fact, he also looks poorly upon the barrage of mistruths spread by the politically correct media, as well as the growing insistence in America that anything which a minority says must be taken as unassailable gospel. As such, I am going to forget all mercy and dissect this article point by point.

Memories of Lepanto

In my last post, I told you to tell someone, just one person, about a hero of the West. Today, I have been given an excellent chance to follow my own advice. For today is the four hundred and forty third anniversary of the Battle of Lepanto; when the forces of the Holy League, led by Don John of Austria, defeated the Ottoman Empire in a five hour naval battle which utterly crushed the Turkish navy, freed thousands of Christian slaves, and bought the west the breathing room that it required to bring about the greatest period of prosperity this world has ever known.

7,500 Christian men gave their lives that their brothers might know the blessings which that had brought. Fighting for faith and freedom, they exhibited the love of which Christ says there is no greater. Let us never forget their memory. Let us never dare to dishonor the blood they shed.

What Honor?

Recently, New York's Michael Bloomberg was knighted by the Queen of England. Since there has been no greater proponent of turning America into an over-regulated nanny state and no greater opponent of the Second Amendment, it makes perfect sense that the country that paved the way in so tyrannizing its citizens (apologies, I mean "subjects") should honor his attempts to spread such pernicious ideals. He served the globalists' message well, and now he receives his merited reward.

The Obola Runs Deep

Plenty of people have already weighed in on the insanity of the West African Ebola crisis hitting America's shores. They've laid out how utterly preventable this crisis has been and how even now simple actions that the government refuses to take could help to limit the damage. Most importantly, they've described the likely toll in American lives of the administration's inaction. I won't retread this ground here.

Yet all of that has been said and ignored. To this date, the Obama administration STILL REFUSES to institute a travel ban on West Africa! This is utterly unconscionable! America's government has cast off all illusion about caring about the lives of its subjects.

What is the Good News Today?

The word "Gospel", or εὐαγγέλιον means, as I'm sure you are aware, "Good News." But what, in our current social and political climate is the "good news"? What does the message of Christianity have to offer us today, when so many things have changed in the world from the era of its birth?

I Don't Think There's Cause for Worry

Ron Kampeas at worries about a decline in Jewish influence in America. I don't quite think he has cause to be worried. Lets look at the position of the Jewish people in American society. On September 19, a "bipartisan congressional resolution urging increased action by the United States and other countries to address resurgent anti-Semitism passed unanimously." I'm sure the Armenians wish they had such pull.

The antisemitism resolution came only a few short weeks after Secretary of State John Kerry (fairly enough) "said the recent rise in anti-Semitism is of great concern to the U.S. government."If only we could say the same thing for the massive invasion (41.3 million immigrants) of our southern border! One that has historically been promoted by a certain group which, we are told, is facing a worrying decline in power. Of course, that makes you wonder, even if Mr. Kampeas is right, who cares about the relative level of your influence when you're getting what you want?

What I'd Do If I Were You

If I were you, someone who is in a completely different business than me, with completely different constituents, I would invite a subcontractor of mine to come on to my television program, a subcontractor who responded to an imagined slight on my part with a profane snit.

Johannesburg Never Sleeps (But it Spends a lot of Time in Bed)

From Moloko Moloto of IOL News: ‘Sex shop or not, you wait your turn’.
"Former Limpopo ANC Youth League secretary Jacob Lebogo pleaded on Tuesday with the Polokwane Magistrate’s Court to release him on bail immediately so he can take care of his sex shop. [...] Lebogo told the court that while his Pleasure Parlour adult shop had seven employees, it depended on him for survival."
How will the South African economy survive this setback to it's vital sex shop industry? Will the world economy collapse? Stay tuned!

"Cougar Life" Commercial : On MILFs and Pop Culture

There's a new commercial making the round on YouTube starring Julia Ann.  Don't know who Julia Ann is? Well congratulations, you watch the good kind of porn. Anyway...

The whole commercial is here:

As the ad begins a gleeful older, but admittedly still not ugly, blonde walks up to a younger woman at a bar and shoves food in her face. "You need a sandwich."

PUA on LinkedIn: For Fun and Profit

Welcome back, let's jump right into it.

Step 1: Go to a networking event (they're everywhere....)
Step 2: Avoid talking to any entrepreneur wannabe's. (No you don't want a demo of anyone's iphone app but they're going to show you anyway...)
Step 3: Find the hottest girl there (yeah there will be other guys around her but that's okay... because you're all just networking right?). Be brief, be excellent, be gone (with one of her business cards)
Step 4: Add her and let the Linked-In game begin...

Feminism and the Whore of Babylon (Part 2)

In the first part of this series, we looked at Isaiah 47 and the fall of the original Babylon. We examined what women symbolized in scripture, as well as the defining features of this particular woman, Babylon, as given by Isaiah. In this part, we pick back up with the description of wickedness given by the prophet Zechariah.

The book of Zechariah (whose name means "Yahweh remembers") was written during the second year of the reign (Zechariah 1:1) of Darius the Great (550–486 BC). Babylon, where the Jews had been taken into captivity, had fallen and the Jews had begun to return to Judea. Among them was Zechariah.

Ockham's Razor: The Best a Man Can Get

In the wake of the murder of Jewish-American journalist Steven Sotloff by the forces of ISIS, the Jerusalem Post published an article detailing the ways in which Jewish journalists could stay safe while working in Muslim countries. Notably absent was the idea of simply sending someone else who wouldn't draw the instant irrevocable ire of everyone in the region.

This novel idea was equally disregarded with regards to female reporters following the sexual assault of Lara Logan. The concept of sending a Western woman, with minimal protection, into an angry mob, in a faraway land, where the role of women in society is seen in a very different way, is apparently not just good, but absolutely sacrosanct. Funny, to me, that sounds like a massive dereliction of duty on the part of her bosses at CBS.

Black Replacement

photo credit: Alex E. Proimos via photopin cc
Linked over from the Drudge Report, Michael W. Chapman of CNS News reports that black unemployment in America has reached 11.4%. This is happening at the same time as the first Black president is looking to perform an end run around the Constitution to import more Latinos. (unemployment rate 7.5%) Because, of course, this country has far more of a duty to outsiders from thousands of miles away than to African Americans who have sweat and bled for this country for hundreds of years.

Feminism and the Whore of Babylon (Part 1)

photo credit: richyvk. All photos via photopin cc,

(From the comments at Alpha Game Plan, a diversion from the ostensible topic of Vox's post, but one still well worth thought.)
Trust said... "In jest, I used to say "i think feminism is the false religion in Revelation, where we are warned to 'stay away from that Woman.'"Now I seriously wonder if it may be, with its denominations including even supposedly patriarchal Christian churches. Nothing has corrupted our society more than feminism, and there is no place where more blood has been spilt more so than in a feminists womb, and no class of despot with more blood on their hands than a feminists hands soaked in the blood of their own children."
Although my personal suspicions lie elsewhere, he raises a good point. While feminism is largely seen in American culture as innocuous, and promoted heavily by the media, educational, and business elites, feminism is an ideology that has shed the blood of hundreds of millions (1) throughout the world, and brought further harm and suffering to billions. In America alone, the death toll due to abortion equates to 57 million since Roe v Wade, almost 6/8 of the total deaths caused by World War II. Add in the number of suicides caused by rampant divorce, and we have ourselves a truly virulent ideology and a horrifying death toll.

Feminism might be drenched in blood, but sadly, so is much of our world. The question posed today is does feminism rises above that, to a level of apocalyptic evil? Does it swim in the blood of the saints, and draw the particular wrath of Almighty God? In order to tell, we'll have to delve into the Biblical text, examine what exactly has been said about the Whore, and line that up with the attributes of feminism, as well as other selected contenders for the position. That being done, we will be in a better position to make the call.

From Dubrovnik: a guest writer on wealth, women and wine...

From Dubrovnik: A guest writer on wealth, women and wine... also the Sea Dance Festival...

Borders are interesting.

They say the world’s most unequal border is between San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico. I should know, I live in the former and have visited the latter. Today it’s a harsh militarized border, but back in the 1970’s it wasn't unheard of to see people playing volleyball using the fence as a net. (Or at least I saw that photo once somewhere. To be fair, it was probably never very common…)

Another fun border is Little Diomede Island to Big Diomede Island, where less than 2 miles separate the United States from Russia. It’s even possible to load a jet-ski with some extra fuel and cut across the strong, freezing Bering Strait currents until you reach Russian soil. On arrival, you’ll promptly be arrested, because there’s a Russian military base right there. Your jet-ski will be impounded and taken to the chop shop. The rims will be taken off, the stereo jacked (Taylor Swift CD and all), and you’ll have to sit in a holding cell for 48 hours before being sent back to Alaska to sit and think about what you did. When you return you’ll have an awesome story. And no jet-ski.

Back to the topic at hand, though. Recently I returned from a caper through the Balkans...

Cannibalism and Catholicism?

A recent apologetics segment on the local Catholic radio station (It's staticy, but good) struck me. The topic was a Protestant charge that transubstantiation amounts to cannibalism. While the charge might be a marginal one, and the on air talent gave it as much time as it is worth, I found the illogic of the charge to be worthy of examining in its own right. Why? Well, lets dig in!

Home of the Far From Brave

Talk to a Boomer about how it was like going to bars back in their day. Ask them about their experiences; it's quite educational. Likely what they'll describe to you will sound to Millennial ears like a cross between the movie Roadhouse and the Vietnam War. Going out to the bar back in those days was downright dangerous, a place where you had to keep your friends close and your wits closer.

The Universal Three

The word three stays strikingly similar across the Indo-European languages. This makes me wonder... The word one is all over the place. Two is a little easier to chart. However, no matter what language you dig up from the meta-family, you usually aren't going to have much trouble recognizing the word three.

Just look at this handy chart of proto-Indo-European numerals from Wikipedia. Focus particularly on the part excerpted below for your convenience, that which specifically deals with the variant forms of the number three (all rights, of course, reserved to the original authors).

three*trei-Hitt. teriyaš (gen. pl.)Lyc. trei, Ved. tráyas, Av. θrāiiō, Pers. çi/se,
Osset. ærtæ,ærtæ, Kashmiri tre, Kamviri tre, Gk. τρεῖς,treĩs, Lat. trēs,
Osc. trís, Umbr. trif, ON þrír, Goth. þreis, Eng.þrēo/three, Gm. drī/drei,
Gaul. treis, Ir. treí/trí, Welsh tri, Arm. erek῾/yerek῾/yerek῾, Toch. tre/trai,
OPruss. tri, Latv. trīs, Lith. trỹs, OCS trije, Pol. trzy, Russ. tri, Alb. tre/tre

As you can see, not much variation in threes across the Indo-European language sprachraum. Personally, I have no clue what to make of it. Is it that these low numbers are used more often, and thus stayed more regular? Wouldn't using a word often contribute to, rather than detract from, linguistic drift and sound change? Was "three" more commonly used in trade and diplomacy across linguistic divides? Your guess is as good as mine.

First Thoughts

Have you ever wondered about the first thoughts? No, not of Adam, but of the One who came before him. Orthodox theology posits a timeless communion between the Trinity before the creation of time, but I wonder if this is correct, or merely the effluent of the philosophical ideals of yesteryear.

What would it truly be like, to exist alone, before all thought, before all of the language and categories that make up or thought, that we take for granted? Today, I'm going to try and plum the depths of pre-time and put forward a possible answer. Hopefully this will inspire wiser, more intelligent minds to do the same.

Presumably the first thought was a self awareness. "I am". With nothing else to act upon Him, the only thing that could act in God was Himself. Mind you, I don't actually suggest a vocalized "I am" but more a feeling of sentience, an awareness, a feeling.  Without sensory organs or a concept of the other, the void would not yet come into contemplation.

The next thought, I would guess, would be "what?" What is this Me that exists? What does it do? What are it's powers, what is its extent? All of these, but undifferentiated and without, at this time, any knowledge of the metrics by which such a thing could be measured.

I imagine that "what" would be frustrating. There is nothing else in the universe, just the two states of abiding and questioning. This leads us to the third concept "difference". There is a difference between "I am" and "I am what". Things are not always the same.

From difference, from the movement of thought,  comes change, and from change time.
The next step is the combination of difference and "I am" written in our language as, "Is there anything else?" Without sensory inputs, this is not that easy a question to answer. I would guess that the answer would not be found in thought but in exhausted silence. There, having the knowledge of existence, the question, and difference, the silence without thought would be recognized as the void.

Difference plus the void generates creation. By thinking, God fills the void, He imposes change outward. Now He can say "what?" plus creation, and begin to examine all of the possibilities. He is no longer bound by what is, but only by what could possibly be. So from nothingness, we have come to limitless creation.(At least I think, please poke holes in this theory in the comments below. ;-) )

Welcome Dimitri Dragonofski!

Pravda Zvíťazí is proud to welcome a new contributor to this blog, whose first post should be posted relatively soon.

Dimitri Dragonofski is a close personal friend, posesses valuable insights about world travel, game, and society in the 21st century, and has pulled off some of the craziest feats I have ever heard of. Simply relating some of his stories is in and of itself a DHV. If we're lucky, he might just share a few of these here on this blog(heavily redacted, of course, for the safety of all involved). Even redacted, they well certainly be worth the cost of admission.

I hope that you will give him a warm and respectful welcome, and that you will derive a good deal of value from his postings! I know I will.

Ignore the Facts

Geraldo Rivera has an interesting take on the current immigration crisis. Interestingly historically illiterate, that is. Let examine this, shall we?
“This is exactly what they did to the Irish in the 19th century, and to the Chinese in the 19th century, and then to the Jews and the Italians in the 20th century,” he said. “Not only do they bring crime, they bring disease. Be afraid! Hide your daughters!”
Disease is an extremely valid fear with population movement. Just ask the remaining Native Americans.  Or the survivors of the Black Plague. Or simply look back to the terror engendered by SARS and the avian flu. That immigrants could possibly be a disease vector is settled science.Of course science, the new sparkly golden god of the decadent post-Christian West doesn't get evoked when somebody don't like what it says. (I'm certain that the true God can empathize.)

In this regard, however, science just joins history, which for most of the West began when the great god Democracy and his brother Socialism defeated Hitler in the Chaoskampf of 1945 and created consumerism and materialism from his entrails. Thus it must also be said that Italian and Jewish mafia activity in the early 20th century is well documented (and even celebrated.) Basically, Geraldo is 0/2.

While it's easy for us today to just focus on the flashiness and the glamour of that era of immigrant based crime, it took a real toll in blood, treasure, and lives for those who had to deal with it firsthand. Yes, we did get some pretty cool things from it - gelato, Las Vegas - but others paid a steep price for our luxurious vacation spot. In order to morally justify immigration, particularly mass immigration, one must clearly point out some gains that offset these very real losses suffered by the existing population. Aside from appeals to the narrow ethnic or economic interests of various cliques, or the insipid Orwellian cult of diversity, I have yet to see this done. I very much doubt I should hold my breath.

Comparative Advantage and the Friend Zone

Recently I've been on a bit of a manosphere binge.In addition to my daily Alpha Game Plan, and occasional Cail Corishev, both of which I've mainly come by through Vox Populi, I've also been going through my backlog of unread posts at Return of Kings. Additionally, after far too long, I've finally started reading Dalrock.

It didn't take me too long to notice the post on beta orbiters that is today's jumping off point. Having done a few too many turns around some womens' magnetospheres myself (far far far too many) I make it a point to read every beta orbiter related posting I can. It certainly hurts,bringing back awful memories, but forcing myself to reflect on it is the best way to cauterize these behaviors; hopefully, one day, escaping them into a new wonderful world of game.

In this particular article, I saw that discussion quickly jumped to the closely related friend zone.This made me wonder,why is the idea of the friend zone so abhorrent to us men? What's wrong with having another friend, who just happens to be female?

The Final Triumph

Antony Loewenstein at recently discussed the extreme extent of NSA spying.
The takeaway was that at this point, the NSA has the information gathering capacity to collect all internet traffic. Presuming that they find some way to store this data, it seems that it could be easily used to blackmail anybody who becomes important. Of course, as Edward Snowden revealed, they're already trading these pictures for other purposes

I wonder though, as the west de-Christianizes, will anybody be left who cares about some guy's weird porn habit? Because the elites made marriage unpalatable, will affairs be a thing of the past? If homosexuality, incest, transgender, and who knows what else are officially protected classes, than what can really be taboo? (Maybe Nazi-themed BDSM? Stalinist-theme however merely shows your patriotism, comrade)

In their triumph, have the elites sown the seeds of their destruction? They have done the devil's work in creating chaos, and have turned the West into hell. Of course, in doing so, they will find that the power they had outside of hell doesn't translate into it.

The thing is, no one really rules in hell: not Satan, and definitely not you. When you have undone all of Yahweh's creation, there is nothing left but the void. There you are powerless. There you are empty. There you are nothing.

Embassies and Insults

Fred Reed recently pointed out a disturbing recent statement from Secretary of State John Kerry.
"I’m working hard to ensure that by the end of my tenure, we will have lesbian, bisexual, and transgender ambassadors in our ranks as well."
While Mr. Reed jumped off from there to discuss the general degradation of America, a topic on which we are in full agreement, lets stay on the topic of embassies for a minute.

Year of the Warrior - Lars Walker

Overall: 10/10
Characters: 10/10
Plot: 10/10
Pacing: 10/10
Message: 10/10

I'd never had all to high of an opinion of Vikings. It's much easier for me to empathize with the ones they raided: the monks in their monastery, hoping that their high stone walls can survive the north men's deprivations, the villagers, grabbing whatever implements they can find that are pointy, or heavy, or might give them the slightest chance of survival against these hardened warriors.The Vikings, in summary, I viewed less as men, and more as I would a tornado, a hurricane, an impersonal force of nature existing only to bring disaster, ruin, and death.

Thus, coming into the book, Mr. Walker had a higher than normal barrier to my attention. Thankfully, I was intrigued enough by Vox Day's review of Hailstone Mountain (The third book in the series) to check out The Year of the Warrior on Amazon. Read the first few pages free? Don't mind if I do! And thus sucked in, I was blown away. 


So ISIS has declared a Caliphate under Ibrahim Awwad Ibrahim Ali al-Badri al-Samarrai, previously known by (what sadly for the historical irony isn't his real name) Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi... Karl von Habsburg, now's your chance! The Lands of the Holy Crown of St Stephen are in danger! We're going to have to make you take swimming lessons first though.

Does anyone remember back in the early 2000's, when claims of impending Caliphate were big in the anti-Islam internet? And how the left pooh-poohed those claims, saying that it would never happen? Well, now we're treated to a Caliphate declared by the left-wing media and the RIGHT attempting to explain it away! What interesting times we live in.

Jesus, like us, faced temptation. Unlike us, He triumphed over it. As with everything that the Master has done, there is a lot for us to learn from His reactions to the challenges put before Him.

When we think of Christ's temptation, usually our minds are drawn immediately to His temptation in the wilderness. It certainly couldn't have come at a worse time for our Lord. Alone, in the midst of desolation. Hungry. Weak. But the strength of the body was only a fraction of the faculties that Jesus had at His command.

Post-Modern English?

I've been wondering (since a few short hours ago) what future English will look like. It seems that while we have no trouble differentiating between Old English, Middle English, Early Modern English and Modern English, little thought has been given as to when the next bright line will be crossed. When will we enter Post-Modern English?
