Re: New book technology

But what about antifa riots in various locations and people killed and injured? What about the abysmal state of "Free Speech" in US universities where even left wing comics refuse to perform? What about left wing bureaucrats sabotaging government machinery? What about Democrat leaders urg...

Re: THE FATE OF EMPIRES and SEARCH FOR SURVIVAL

In my copy of The Fate of Empires, it on page 24, but if you're using the link, go to page 15, XXIV The Arab Decline. I read it three times, just to be sure I wasn't imagining it or misreading it. It's truly amazing. :shock: :) Vic Complimentary to Glubb's essay and written well before it is a book...

Re: New book technology

Certainly there are lots of people on both sides with very strong opinions, and the extremes of both parties would happily kick each others' heads in given the chance. However, those extremes, precisely because they are extreme, attract news coverage wildly out of proportion to their actual numbers...

Re: New book technology

Did he call himself a " fascist ?" You did. That is what I was referring to. Sorry for not making that clear. As for the "Alt-right" label I think, and I may be wrong, the reason the are distancing themselves, if that is true, is because the "alt-right" is too all enco...

Re: New book technology

What really is obvious is how much Americans hate each now. But, what is surprising is that considering how many guns there are in the USA that it hasn't erupted into political violence...yet. Will it devolve into Wiemar Republic style political street fights and body counts? Any opinion from someo...

Re: New book technology

Well, the other important difference is that the NYT actually cares whether its articles are true. And while the New York Times *leans* left, Breitbart is way way out on the far right fringe with the fascists, and proudly so. Katherine tsk tsk, definite name calling. (-: I listen in on both sides a...

Re: New book technology

The thing about the NYT is that they are left leaning but pretend to be neutral, whereas Breitbart is upfront about where it stands. At least with the later you know right away what they are up to not so with the former. Well, the other important difference is that the NYT actually cares whether it...

Re: New book technology

Note that the South China Morning Post was acquired by Alibaba Group in 2016, Since then, its not clear whether it has maintained its independence from the mainland Chinese government. As an alternative, you might have a look at the English editions of Japan's big two: Yomiuri (right-leaning) and A...

Re: THE FATE OF EMPIRES and SEARCH FOR SURVIVAL

And that once feminism by whatever name starts it is irreversible and no turning back until the host culture dies and is taken over by a male dominated society.

Re: New book technology

I'm not being nosey, Orphy, but I'm really intrigued as to the category of the books, and also what type of individual would amass all those books, then spend seven years digitising them before donating them to a school.
