    Goodbye to Fidelity, Marriage and the Nuclear Family

    Cultural change happens so slowly it’s almost indiscernible; one small step here, one slight alteration there, and before you know it, the world has changed beyond belief. The changes in marriage began in 1914 when women were dragged into war industries in Britain and America. Then followed female emancipation which gave women the power to change politics. The next big step came in 1960 with the arrival of the birth control pill. No longer were women tied to men by the need to support a pregnancy and subsequent child. And with the women’s rights movement, wages for women crept up to the level paid men. Then there was the change…

    Something to Cheer About

    The news these days gets worse and worse, first the virus, then the unravelling of the Great American Republic. For the first time most of us are actually wondering if we’ll have to defend our homes, our wives, and our daughters from the mob. Now we know, now we can feel in our bones, the cold wind of anarchy drifting through the streets like smoke from burning cars. It makes one wonder if there’s any hope, anything to hang onto in this terrible world. Well, yes there is. I give you this year’s 75th Victory Day Parade in Moscow, June 24. It’s a brilliant, warm day, the Russian Army (and…

    The Solution to Today’s American Riots

    I think we all know what the solution is to the race riots that periodically turn the United States into a third world country. We know it, but we don’t want to admit it because to do so means a century and a half of addressing racial issues have been a complete failure. The reason improving race relations have failed is because the methods used are based on a false premise. Progressives believe black economic failures have been based on institutionalized white prejudice. In fact, black failures are based on black educational achievements, and these in turn, are based on biology. So the real reason America is convulsed decade after…

    Germany, 1st in Space

    Germany was the first country in space, not the United States, not Russia: Germany. Its Aggregat 4 (V2) rocket had a first successful test flight on October 3, 1942, reaching an altitude of 84.5 kilometres (52.5 miles). On that day Walter Dornberger, head of the German Army rocket research centre, declared in a speech at Peenemünde: This third day of October, 1942, is the first of a new era in transportation, that of space travel. He was prescient about both space and travel. Further models of the A4 reached an altitude of 108.5 miles, well past the Kármán line of 100 kilometres where space is said to begin. (If it…

    Personal, Economic and Political Error of Vacation Travel

    I’ve traveled, you’ve traveled, we’ve all traveled; in the past two decades everyone who could afford it traveled a lot, mostly by air, mostly for pleasure. Until Covid-19 came, along we all thought this trend would increase forever. Now, we’re wondering if anyone will ever travel again. Let’s put that aside and ask a more philosophical question; should we be traveling at all? Indeed what is the rationale for travel, who encourages it and what does it do to people who do it? These are not simple questions, and the default answer, ‘because we enjoy it,’ says nothing. After many years of studying the issue, and travel to five continents,…

    Rebuilding the European Union

    The European Union is in danger of collapse for one basic reason. That reason is that political control is not related to the member states’ economic performance. It you compare it to a family, the kids have access to their parents’ credit cards. The damage was caused in two ways. On the one hand, bankers in France and Germany found they could provide hard currency (the Euro) to countries with a lower GDP allowing them to buy goods made in France and Germany. In effect, the difference between their actual economic performance and the one reflected in the currency was a loan. When these subsequently couldn’t be paid off, the…

    The Second Invasion of Russia

    Napoleon organized the first invasion, the one illustrated was the second. You will be amazed to know who was behind it, what it was for and who took part. The list of belligerents is impressive: Britain, the United States, France, Japan, India, Canada (yes, Canada), Greece, Czechoslovakia, and many more. While the world was getting over WWI and the Spanish Flu, these Allied armies were trying to crush the Bolshevik revolution. Wikipedia suggests the intervention in the Russian civil war was primarily designed to block supplies getting to Germany. This is dissembling since the intervention continued well after the war was over. No, the real reason was political. The Bolsheviks…

    The Germany You Never Knew

    Have a look at these women featured on the cover of the German magazine The Young Lady sometime in the 1930’s. Besides being very pretty, they’re also very typical of women on magazine covers in Britain and America at the same time. To add to the experience, listen to the music of the era these women would have been dancing to. Then, if you can stomach it, consider that we tried for five years to kill them in their homes and offices with bombs from the air, and that those who survived were raped and killed on the ground by Russian troops, our rapacious temporary allies. We’ve covered up our…

    Stop International Air Travel

    How did the Coronavirus get from Hubei, China to the rest of the world, given that it can’t swim, can’t fly and doesn’t have legs? We’ve all known instinctively, haven’t we? It came in the lungs, on the hands and on the luggage of air passengers arriving at our airports Now there’s factual evidence our gut instinct was correct. The Daily Mail reports Brazilian researchers have found air travel was the main driver behind the spread of coronavirus. The busier the airports, the more people got the disease and died. It can help understand what happened if you think of the virus as equivalent to a hand grenade with the…

    Goodbye to Berlin

    Christopher Isherwood was a British/American novelist and screenwriter whose best known works, Goodbye to Berlin and Mr. Norris Changes Trains, became the basis of the hit Broadway musical Cabaret. Originally, these novels, based on Isherwood’s diaries of his life as a language teacher in Weimar Berlin, were to be part of a larger work to be called The Lost. Instead, desperate for money, he sliced and diced his diaries into a number of articles, the novel Sally Bowles, and these two overlapping novels. Isherwood went to Berlin to see prep school friend and poet W.H. Auden in March, 1929 and moved to the city in November, 1929. There he discovered…
