2022.05.16 - Adam Ellwanger - The American Conservative - Multiculturalism is Anti-Culture: A culture with integrity simply does not identify itself as a culture; conversely the claim to tolerance of multiple cultures within a society entails endangering (if not extirpating) one’s own culture, the very notion of the nation itself.

2022.05.18 - Steve Sailer - Taki’s Magazine - Triggered: A qualitative difference between (the very numerous) mass shootings in the US is ignored, Sailer argues, on account of fixation with White Supremacy. The journalistic treatment of mass shooting events in the US is described in detail.
