Recommended books

Socially and politically oriented Youtube channels often interview authors of books that have captured the reading public’s attention.

The books below attracted my attention because they give powerful arguments and evidence against the Woke class’s condemnation of Western Civilization.

The final two by Timothy Gordon and his wife, Stephanie, are so ‘out there’ on the fringes for most conservatives that they will not consider them. The books, however, restate age-old beliefs about men’s natural leadership and women’s role as organizer of the domestic sphere.

I intend to add to the list whenever I come across book of similar interest.

Hysteria meets facts about colonialism

The video below is of an attempted debate about British colonialism between historian & broadcaster Rafe Heydel-Mankoo and television personality Narinder Kaur.

While Rafe Heydel-Mankoo reels off basic facts about British colonialism, Narinder Kaur launches into a screaming rant. Kaur drops to the depths of imbecility with the accusation that Heydel-Mankoo ‘sounds quite mad.’

Narinder Kaur is representative of many female commentators – though most are younger than Kaur – whose views are driven solely by emotion, often wild emotion. They have an emotion about a particular issue, and that’s the end of it. Say what you want, it does not matter. Come with the most undisputed facts, it makes no difference. In Australia we have a clone of Kaur – Lidia Thrope. You could not meet a greater crackpot than Thorpe.

There are more than 5,000 comments on this ‘debate’. I have included two below that are representative.

Rafe Heydel-Mankoo has his own channel. I highly recommend it. His fluency and grasp of historical detail is impressive.


1 month agoI have a headache after listening to this woman. $500 hair , $300 nails, $1000 outfit, screaming at everyone on a public forum that she is somehow opressed by the people who gave her everything including the freedom to yell and scream at everyone. Bloody hell…..


2 months agoA woman sitting there in beautiful clothes (well, to my eye anyway), perfectly styled hair, professionally applied makeup and in seemingly perfect health screaming that she’s not lucky. Poor thing.

The truth about colonialism

It is high time for some sense and historical accuracy to enter the vigorous ‘debate’ about colonialism in general and Great Britain’s colonial past in particular. Nigel Biggar Emeritus Regius Professor of Moral Theology at the University of Oxford and Distinguished Scholar in Residence at Pusey House, Oxford has done just that with his just published ‘Colonialism’. From Triggernometry’s description of the their interview with Biggar:

‘Nigel Biggar CBE was Emeritus Regius Professor of Moral Theology at the University of Oxford and Distinguished Scholar in Residence at Pusey House, Oxford. He holds a BA in Modern History from Oxford and a PhD in Christian Theology & Ethics from the University of Chicago. His most recent book ‘Colonialism: A Moral Reckoning’ was initially accepted by Bloomsbury, who later changed their mind claiming “public feeling on the subject does not currently support the publication of the book”. The book was ultimately published by William Collins and has become a Sunday Times Bestseller.’

See the final 10 minutes of the video to hear who at Bloomsbury kicked up the fuss, forcing the publisher to run away from the contract and the author to take it back.

British Colonialism – was it good or bad?

A long review of one’s cultural antecedents would reveal that the past has been a process of growth, adjustments, defeats, revival, consolidations until the present time. Take what I regard as Australian history. Time travel would take the majority of Australians back to the United Kingdom. From there, we would go back through the centuries, through migrations, invasions, colonization, and consolidation to the tribes of Northwestern Europe. From there one goes into the haze of pre-history or unrecorded history.

The point is that the above phases are a natural part of human history, a part of the nation into which one is born at a particular time. A country, a nation or a people is not illegitimate because it was the result of colonization and migration. Indeed, the new stable consolidation erases and supersedes whatever was prior to it.

However, one can make a moral and social judgment about a particular phase of migration and colonization. Prof. Nigel Biggar, Regius Professor of Moral and Pastoral Theology at the University of Oxford and canon of Christ Church Cathedral does so in his new book, Colonialism: A Moral Reckoning . Professor Biggar is interviewed by Peter Whittle on The New Culture Forum.

‘First Nations’ – An oracular class

I have alleged often on this website that Aboriginal activists (mostly the delirious white faction) are agitating for a separatist system of government in Australia. Theirs is an apartheid, though, with a huge difference from the South African system in which black Africans were the inferior race.

In our local activists’ vision (not all Aboriginals are activists), white Anglo-Celtic peoples who established and built the Australian nation with absolutely no input from the disparate Aboriginal tribes roaming the continent, constitute the inferior caste.

But Australia’s Aboriginal activists (particularly the white ones) are not the only indigenous group struck down by delusions of superiority. In all countries where Europeans founded a new nation you have a similar a group of ‘First Nations’ people pontificating to the bad white (mostly Anglo-Celtic) folk, often from fat-cat positions in government and non-government organizations.


Confession and Conspiracism in the Church of Social Justice

Jonathan Kay, Quillette, 22 Nov 2021

“Indigenous peoples have been stewards of this planet since time immemorial,” tweeted Canadian Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault from the Glasgow Climate Change Conference earlier this month. “The fight against climate change is not possible without their knowledge and leadership.”

It was an odd thing to post. In recent years, many Canadian Indigenous groups have become full commercial partners in oil and gas development projects, and so have no particular incentive to apply their “knowledge and leadership” toward assisting white environmentalists such as Guilbeault in limiting carbon emissions. But even if First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples fully answered his call, it’s not clear why they would have any special insights to offer in regard to how densely urbanized nations such as Canada can best shift their industrial base, power generation, and transportation networks to low-carbon fuel sources.

But for Canadian progressives, Guilbeault’s intended audience, his message would have made sense, as it channelled the officially endorsed conceit that Indigenous peoples comprise a sort of oracular caste, whose folk wisdom shall inform the project of planetary salvation (or as one magazine headline writer rapturously put it, “we need Indigenous wisdom to survive the apocalypse”). Canadian progressives, a constituency once defined by fastidious secularism, are now experiencing a sort of Indigenous mystical awakening—a northern variant of the phenomenon described aptly by John McWhorter in his new bookWoke Racism: How a New Religion Has Betrayed Black America.

In defence of colonialism: the case of Papua New Guinea

by C. R Hallpike

History Reclaimed, 23 November 2021

Modern liberals [the left], so loud in their condemnation of colonialism, for the most part have little or no idea of the conditions of life in traditional primitive societies, or the harsh realities facing the early European colonists. A classic example of the need for colonialism has been Papua New Guinea. Independence has seen a terrible regression.

Papua New Guinea is the eastern half of a vast island to the north of Australia across the Coral Sea.  The western half of the island was a Dutch possession from the eighteenth century, and was then seized by the Indonesians after they gained independence from the Dutch in 1949. What is known as Papua was initially a British Protectorate in the south-eastern half of the island, originally established at the insistence of the Australians in 1884, who were worried because Germany was securing its own colony of German New Guinea at the same time on the north-east coast of the island. In 1905 Australia took over responsibility for Papua, and at the outbreak of World War in 1914 occupied German New Guinea as well. After the war this became a Mandated Territory of the League of Nations. In the Second World War, the administrations of Papua and New Guinea were combined, and remained so until independence in 1975. This eastern half of the island is nearly 160,000 square miles, but in the early years of colonisation the population was less than one and a half million. Nevertheless, the number of languages spoken in Papua New Guinea is nearly 850. A relatively small proportion of coastal languages are Austronesian languages brought in the last two or three thousand years by sea-faring people, but the vast majority of languages are the far more ancient ones spoken in the hinterland.

Papua New Guinea is essentially a mass of mountains and river valleys covered in dense tropical rain-forest, through which are scattered large numbers of very small tribal societies speaking mutually unintelligible languages. Traditional societies were very loosely organized, with no hereditary chiefs to exercise political authority, nor did they even have councils of elders for peace-making and dispute settlement. Old men were more likely to be regarded as contemptible dotards than as wise counsellors to whom the community should listen with respect. Elaborate and highly competitive exchanges of pork and dances were organized by Big Men, faction leaders in their communities, who might also be fight leaders, but whose importance disappeared with age.
