Piers Morgan is someone I despise. He could be considered a Tony Blair of the media: someone who constantly fakes emotion and can argue passionately for one proposition and a few days later argue equally passionately for the counter-proposition. He is symptomatic of the British bourgeoisie: mealy-mouthed and insincere, his only morality being his bank balance and his deference to whatever elite is in power. Yet he is even more dishonest than this obvious observation suggests. Furthermore, Morgan is typical of the groupthink inherent in today's media, where all discourse is framed to manipulate public opinion.

Fake toughness, fake arguments

The situation in Catalonia is a difficult one for me to reconcile: on the one hand, I believe the different peoples within Europe have the right to govern themselves and that political borders should be redrawn to reflect the historical boundaries of peoples (obviously, there would have to be a certain amount of compromise); on the other, the independence movement has been orchestrated by Communist groups in an area of Spain dominated by the Extreme Left. After all, this is the Mayor of Barcelona, Ada Colau, who delights in urinating on her own streets:

The boxer Andre Ward has just retired undefeated, having spent time as super middleweight then light heavyweight champion of the world. He won the Super Six Series that saw him take on and beat the best super middleweights of his era, like Carl Froch, Mikkel Kessler and Chad Dawson. However, there have always been questions regarding his dirty tactics and it is indisputable that he beat several opponents through the continued use of illegal blows that went unchallenged by the referee, particularly in the defeats of Mikkel Kessler (head-butting), Sergey Kovalev (low blows) and Sakio Bika (head-butting, wrestling and elbowing). Why then was he allowed to get away with so much for so long and why are some sportsmen allowed to cheat and others not?

In my article on the campsite as Pioneer Little Europe, I mentioned in some way emulating the lifestyle of Irish gypsies. These Pikeys also cropped up in Hilaire Belloc's article 'On Inns' in a rather romantic light and I do not wish the readers of this blog to think I have any time for these ne'er-do-wells. I do, however, believe there are lessons to be learned from their lifestyle, both for good and ill, and these are what I wish to explore here.

The Youtube user Gaelic Neoreactionary is spoiling us at the moment by uploading the Jonathan Bowden speeches only previously seen on DVD. The first of his two new uploads is Bowden's speech on the guru of Italian fascism, Gabriele D'Annunzio. Bowden explores the link between D'Annunzio's artistic and political careers, and how his romanticist and traditionalist literature that brought together many strands of thought and styles shaped his politics. Equally, his aristocratic background is important, particularly in relation to modernity, as D'Annunzio joined the Italian Air Force during the First World War, the pilot becoming the modernist knight of the air. Equally, this blend of modernism and traditionalist elitism would shape his fascist ideology.

FILM REVIEW: THE SEARCHERS, John Ford's Look at Race Realism

The Searchers has been hailed as one of the greatest films of all time. The BFI's Sight and Sound have it at number seven in their poll of esteemed film critics - and this is in spite of it being a very politically incorrect film in an industry that has been by turns liberal and Judeo-bolshevik since its inception. Even the liberal bourgeois critic I love to hate, Roger Ebert, despite his affected bandying about of words like 'racism' and 'genocide', had to admit that the character of Ethan Edwards was 'one of the most compelling characters Ford and Wayne ever created.' What Ebert does not like is the fact that Wayne's character is unashamedly racially aware and that the film does not seek to criticise this.

The Youtube channel Gaelic Neoreactionary has uploaded two speeches by the late great Rightist philosopher, artist and writer, Jonathan Bowden, which have previously only been available on the DVD The Oratory of Jonathan Bowden, a copy of which I am a proud owner. The first speech is on pro-imperialist Japanese author, playwright and actor Yukio Mishima, who committed suicide by seppuku/harakiri in 1970 after a failed coup d'état in which Mishima attempted to restore Japan to its imperial status with the Emperor as absolute ruler.
