Victim Of Aragorn

Gondor and all of the West are bloody well lucky that they didn’t have anything even close to being similar to modern Liberals and Progressives. If they had, Gondor would have fallen and there would have been the equivalent of the cover depicted above.

They’d have been rioting all over Minas Tirith, screaming, “#OrclivesMatter! End Numenorian Privilege! Rohirrim are Racist!” It’d have been a mess and would likely have ended with Sauron ruling Middle Earth.

Maps are important and sometimes an excuse for complaint by the certain sorts of non-cartographers. Simarly, Europe is still important and sometimes an excuse for complaint by the certain sorts. So here’s a map of Europe as it is and has been seen by Liberals:

If those “experts” in race-based sociology are correct in promulgating the idea that maps are actually just a social construction, then the map of Europe above must be an accurate cartographic projection of how Liberals have mapped Europe in their minds. 😉

Do Check Your Privilege

Posted in Musings, Philosophy, Society on May 6th, 2015

Everyone, please do check you privileges. Oh, not in the manner that the Liberals and Progressives mean for you to do so in order to delegitimize any opinion that you might have that dissents against their agenda and closely held beliefs. Instead check your privileges and, if possible, enumerate them for yourselves because the privileges you’ve earned or your ancestors earned for you will go along way towards defining the character of your culture.

I would say that, even more than rights, privileges are the fundamental metric of what any people value and hold dear.
