All the best in 2010

Events in my private life have again influenced my blogging. My wife had to spend the last couple of weeks in the hospital due to some complications in her pregnancy which, as it turned out, were less serious then thought at first. You can imagine, though, that after initially hearing the news of her complications, updating my blog was bumped far down my list of priorities. She will spend the New Year and Christmas at home which I hope is a good omen for next year.

I wish you all the best in 2010.

Can't happen in America? Yeah, right!

One of the myths spread around the world about America is that it is not possible for a personality cult to develop there. Explanations went from the allegedly superior character of the political system to the supposedly "democratic" character of the Americans themselves.

The advent of "Obamania" more or less refuted such claims. Still, lightning does not strike twice in the same spot, does it? Actually, it does. Check out the reactions to Sarah Palin's visit to the ill-fated Fort Hood:

FORT HOOD — Rebecca Dalberg's excitement over Sarah Palin's book signing Friday night was so intense, she wanted to spend the night in a parking lot to assure a front-row seat.

Her retired military husband, Sonny Dalberg, quashed that idea because the Copperas Cove couple live less than five minutes away from the sprawling Army post where the former Alaska governor signed about 1,000 copies of her new book, Going Rogue.(Still believe women are just as smart as men? - WKoA)

The Dalbergs, who arrived 11 hours before the event, were among the first people to navigate a maze of meandering lines at the post exchange before reaching last year's GOP vice presidential candidate.
...

The crowd greeted her entry with a boisterous “Sar-ah, Sar-ah” chant.

“She's human. She listens to people. She doesn't think that she's better than anyone,” Rebecca Dalberg said. “She's all-American. That's Mom, apple pie and John Wayne.”

...

Theresa Cockran of nearby Nolanville came away convinced she had just met the next president of the United States.

“She's like me. She's got a heart and a soul,” said Cockran, wife of a military retiree. “I am so happy I almost wet my pants.”


The last quote is the best ever argument against women having a right to vote I've ever seen. If that didn't make you cringe, I don't know what will! Perhaps this last sentence:

“She doesn't make mistakes. She doesn't do wrong,” Rebecca Dalberg said.


Now, where have we heard simillar things before? Take your pick.

Revolutionary instead of conservative

Though I promised a month ago that I will be blogging some more, my company had other ideas and obligations at work prvented me for fulfilling my promise. That will teach me, I suppose.

Still, I had enought time to stumble on to some interesting stuff along the way. What particullarly caught my eye is this text from the blogger Sultan Knish which, in my opinion, using the Republican Party of the US, accurately diagnoses what is wrong with national patriotic movements around the world that oppose the transantional progressivist agenda. Indeed, too many of them identify and behave as "conservative", which is a label and MO completely inappropriate considering the political moment. Without the complete rollback of the progressivist measures the societies of Europe and America will not heal from the ills of today nor will simple election victories mark the defeat of globalist liberailsm.

This goes as much for Serbia as for anyone else. Lately, there has been a lot of talk about a "united opposition" against the Tadić regime. All I can say to that is "what's the point?" The parties that would make up such an organization by and large would follow the paradigm set up by progressivist ideologies, they themselves say as much. What we need is a revolutionary organization, one that would dedicate itself to repealing the disastrous acts of the previous 9 years. Until then, we'll be stuck in this mire.
