I think I might have found myself a new career in the entertainment business (and while I'm at it I'd like to affirm my recognition to black culture for their wonderful and essential contributions to music and dancing). So I might not be able to blog so much. Expect me to come back at an irregular basis.
What I just wanted to say is that when I get the time to write again I will have several positive things to say about Baron Bodissey and Gates of Vienna. Baron Bodissey gained a lot of respect from me. Not mainly for reconsidering, but for the whole way he handled the situation. I had directed very pointed critique at him, but he handled it respectfully and decently as someone honestly interested in intellectual discourse. This should be contrasted with the actions of Lawrence Auster (which you can read about below in the blog). The View from the Right blog has lost much of my respect.
Another thing, after my "I'm an island" post many people concluded that I had given up and also that I said that Western civilization is doomed. But I didn't say that Western civilization is doomed. The point is that I do not care anymore. I'm leaving the destiny of the Western civilization to the people of the two Christianities. I'm leaving the mess that they create for themselves, for themselves to sort out. And by the emails and other comments I get, it's clear that my island is becoming populated. If I get the time to blog more regularly again, I'm sure it would be crowded. The end of the West is not the end of European civilization, no more than the end of the Roman empire was the end of European civilization. From this island we will watch the civilization of the two Christianities falling apart (this reflects an attitude rather than a prediction), while getting prepared for building the third generation of European civilization, Rebuilding Rome with sugar on the top.
I get comments from people nowadays of how great they think it is to meet a person that is so completely happy, and how I spread happiness around me. I have found balance in my life, and unfortunately right now it does not allow for too much blogging. But don't worry, the things I have to say can be equally well said a few months from now.
Paul Belien also won my sympathy. I can see myself in him. And it's great with comments as the one from Phanarth from Denmark, who completely gets what I'm saying. He writes at GoV:
Your voice has been unique. I have never seen anyone like you who understood how most of the things American conservatives blame Europe for are in fact imports from America. You are one of the very few who see things clearly and can also explain it in an understandable way.I hope Phanarath would send me an email to conswede (at) mailbolt.com like so many others of those who gets me.
There also an endless stream of golden nuggets sent to me by Geza, that should be shared with the world.
Update: Lawrence Auster commented again at his site, and while he himself is often blind to a good sense of humour (and in general blind to many things that do not relate to his ego), his posts have been getting increasingly funnier, and now they are absolutely hilarious. Me and Political Junkie had a good laugh over Auster's pompous silliness, and his new career as a Freudian Guru.
Anyway, Auster doesn't get what I'm saying, and he doesn't even try. Who cares anymore?
Update 2: I have written a post regarding Auster's reaction to my comment in the first paragraph: On black culture, Islam and "moral thinking"
