In an effort to describe and explain the madness forcing various versions of a “green agenda” upon us, our guest Salim Mansur recently found himself drawn to a series of essays originally compiled in Ayn Rand’s 1971 book “The New Left: The Anti-Industrial Revolution.” (re-released in 1999 as “Return of the Primitive” with additional essays by Peter Schwartz on the enduring legacy of the Left.)

“There is something fundamentally primitive in this malady, this profound sickness that has overtaken Western man,” laments Salim. “It was astounding. Everything that Rand wrote about is what we’re living through. This is not a new debate.”

Drawing upon Rand’s symbolic comparison of the Greek gods Apollo and Dionysus with the Right and Left respectively, Salim is led unavoidably to the conclusion that the making of civilizations is an individual undertaking, not a collective one.

In the light of that reality, the collectivist wave now enveloping the West can itself be understood to be both the cause and symptom of civilization’s collapse. Continue reading »

Actions by Leftists over the years can only lead one to conclude that they are members of a death cult.

Attempts to describe the Left have generally been in economic terms: socialist, fascist, communist, Fabian, etc., but if we go back to 1969 we discover that one philosopher, Ayn Rand, described the Left in a way that stands to this day as accurate and even prophetic.

In her book The New Left: The Anti-Industrial Revolution, which was re-released as Return of the Primitive we find an essay that compared the Left to the Greek god Dionysus—the god of insanity, frenzy, and drunkenness and the Right with the god Apollo the “averter of evil,” the god of light, truth, education, and reason.

Rand uses two events of that year, the launch of Apollo 11 and the music festival near Woodstock, to startlingly juxtapose those two elements in society which seem forever at odds with each other—man’s lofty rational nature and his baser bestial nature.

Salim Mansur joins Robert Vaughan to discuss Rand’s insight into the fundamental nature of man and, in particular, the insanity of the Left.

The Freedom Convoy | Andrew Lawton

The Trucker’s Freedom Convoy was a pivotal moment in Canadian history and one which will be studied for many years to come.

Predictably, the dependent press (legacy media outlets in the direct pay of the Liberal government) were notorious for their mishandling of the event. Their feeble and often amateurish attacks meant to vilify the protesters by means of deception and outright falsehoods were thwarted by the coverage of the rally by honest journalists such as Andrew Lawton of True North.

In order to set the record straight for the sake of posterity, Andrew published The Freedom Convoy—The inside story of three weeks that shook the world (Sutherland House). The book quickly became a best seller. In it, Andrew details how the rally was nothing like that depicted by both the dependent press and the politicians in government.

Andrew also reveals the inner workings of the organization that started the Convoy although “organization” is a term used loosely as it soon became apparent that the rally was quickly evolving into a massive grassroots movement spanning the country and involving several thousands of protesters.

Fueled by disgust and even rage over the tyrannical measures the Trudeau/Singh government had inflicted on them during the preceding two years Canadians across the country supported the truckers in numbers never seen before in this country. The response was noticed all over the world with similar convoys starting up in Europe, Australia, and the United States.

Robert Vaughan sat down with Andrew to discuss his inside knowledge of the freedom convoy and the events of those three weeks that shook the world.

Saul Alinsky

As the author of 1971’s Rules For Radicals, were he alive today, Saul Alinsky would no doubt be pleased to see his own radical views and tactics resulting in progress for those on the Left – particularly his beloved Democratic Party.

Some of the Alinsky symptoms:

  • increased violence during political rallies
  • the growing intolerance of differing views on campuses
  • the polarization of political forces along lines of racism and the haves and have nots
  • the manufacture of fake news, and much more
  • All of these symptoms reflect the “rules” outlined in Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. Many attribute today’s decline in civilized political discourse directly to Saul Alinsky. His book has been often cited as a reason for the successes of Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

    As we share the opinions of Dinesh D’Souza, David Alinsky, and Ralph Benko as heard during a July 20/17 C-SPAN debate about Saul Alinsky’s radical rules, the controversy begins with the book’s opening epigram dedicated to the “first radical” – Lucifer. (After all, it is to Lucifer’s kingdom that the Leftward road of good intentions leads.) Continue reading »
