But if a man’s efficiency is not guided and regulated by a moral sense, then the more efficient he is the worse he is, the more dangerous to the body politic. Courage, intellect, all the masterful qualities, serve but to make a man more evil if they are merely used for that man’s own advancement, with brutal indifference to the rights of others. It speaks ill for the community if the community worships these qualities and treats their possessors as heroes regardless of whether the qualities are used rightly or wrongly. It makes no difference as to the precise way in which this sinister efficiency is shown. It makes no difference whether such a man’s force and ability betray themselves in a career of money-maker or politician, soldier or orator, journalist or popular leader. If the man works for evil, then the more successful he is the more he should be despised and condemned by all upright and far-seeing men. To judge a man merely by success is an abhorrent wrong; and if the people at large habitually so judge men, if they grow to condone wickedness because the wicked man triumphs, they show their inability to understand that in the last analysis free institutions rest upon the character of citizenship, and that by such admiration of evil they prove themselves unfit for liberty.–TR
The idea that the greater the man, the greater his vices, that virtues are tools evil may use just as the good may use vices for the greater good, is why Western civ is decadent and deserving of no salvation.

I do take exception with your description of ISIS terrorists as “brave.” It does not take bravery to behead unarmed people, rape,crucify children, shoot into a crowd of unarmed people, blow up a plane, or murder people on their way to a religious celebration. It takes a certain amount of psychopathology, belief in an all consuming supremacist ideology that has not been employed by the majority of the world since the Middle Ages to commit these atrocities. But no it is not brave.–Comment
The West is lost, people don’t even realize what the virtue of courage is any more. They think anyone that wants the reward of jihad for dying, is brave because they go to their deaths. I suppose it is not unexpected, since many Westerners have no physical challenge to surmount, so there is no real point for them to develop courage as a virtue. It’s just an abstract concept they read about which other people have.

Some interesting comments I made almost a year ago. Let’s see how they fit the modern context, if any.
Leftist orthodoxy now accepts the innocence of Islamism as an article of faith,…They are too completely invested in multiculturalism, social deconstruction and redistribution to doubt the faith now…
And therefore they will cling to their dogma, however improbable it might be, long past the point when any reasonable Leftist would have doubted it. This is the most dangerous aspect of the crisis facing the West. Not only are we in danger of tearing our politics apart, we must. It has now become a case of destroying our civilization in order to save it…The cultural elites of the West are going to hang themselves in the morning according to a schedule that they themselves have devised.
Do you think our elites won’t punch the door buttons to let the killers in to shoot us? They already have. They already have.
It’s that last sentence that sends the chill up my spine. It’s pretty much what I’ve been thinking for over a decade. Our own failure to tell the truth about what’s happening and the nature of the enemy, and to face the seriousness of the task ahead of us, has been made clear since shortly after 9/11. In fact, it was probably clear long before that, but after 9/11 it became undeniable.-Neo Neo
Of course. Americans are called paranoid due to the gun culture and the various usage of ammo in actual shooting galleries and training setups, but strength does not come from being lazy on the couch all the time. That’s something Europe, the birth place of the Enlightenment including the dark products like communism, seems to have forgotten under the Pax Americana. Unfortunately for them, Pax Americana is dead. And they helped kill it.
They’ll get what’s coming to them.-Y
Sometimes paranoia is good for survival.

Funny combination. But also important for an alliance against the Left.
I did come to the conclusion in 2007 that the Leftist alliance was getting Americans killed intentionally.

Pretty good video for a random recommendation on youtube. SJWs often likes to take on nerds and tech specialists, because that group of Democrats or fake liberals aren’t known to be warriors or ruthless. Well, there’s always the 3%.

Additional alternative points of view about those opposing or reacting to the Leftist alliance, what I call anti Leftists since they are so diverse and difficult to track using any common line.
VoxDay has its own independent publishing house, which he probably owns a majority share control in, and is economically tied to publishing sci fi and fantasy novels, that aren’t accepted by Leftists.
I consider him a useful weapon and tool, in the war against the Leftist alliance. But he will get less useful if he is so weak as to believe in Leftist propaganda, whether he likes it or not. The older generation of cuckservatives or conservative “bipartisan” people, I expect to fall for cons, but VoxDay makes his “authority” online and economically, as being hostile to SJW mind control.

Ymarsakar: “The anti Left wants to put into power a US President that focuses on Fortress America, because many of them don’t even live in the US and they would prefer that America’s foreign adventures stop, allowing people to focus on fighting the Leftist alliance.”
I’ve noticed they tend to be pro-Putin and align with Russian worldview propaganda.
Some additional talk over there about this subject. In reply I wrote:
It’s a way to counter balance American adventures, since they assume Putin’s power projection is too limited. Whereas America’s logistics allows our power to project very far, which means the evil or good in the Seat of the Presidency tends to magnify the world population’s desire to “vote in our elections”.
Much of it was based on Soviet and Leftist propaganda as well, which turned people against America, making them anti America. Well some people are more anti American than the Left’s anti American.
Some of them live in Paris, VoxDay lives in Italy or thereabouts. The invasion of Europe is something they are concerned most about, and the Islamic Jihad is their secondary priority, apart from the SJW totalitarians online they fight with all the time. Internal domestic disputes in America have no real effect on them, and what they know of it comes from Facebook or prior Leftist propaganda. Few ever Awakened before 2008, for example, to the Leftist alliance and various gray/black operations which I know of, but others do not.
Heck, Snowden lived in the US, but now where is he? That kind of independent roam around, is classic of the anti Left. I can’t even call them an alliance or a coalition yet, they haven’t matured to that stage. They are getting there though. Cuckservatives, conservatives, patriots, there’s a lot of factions in this war, on top of the Left’s 1000+1 internal factions.
Generally I’m very good at running independent simulations where I decide what is being tested, rather than listening to some Leftist controlled gatekeeper authority telling me how things are. And so some people might want to get to the source of the data, if they wish to spend that much time at it. Or they can listen to other people give executives summaries, which aren’t necessarily always accurate or useful for your line of life/work.
