  1. He is a good looking man and Steve King looks a lot like him.
    These days to be an individual means to be a Conservative.
    Almost everybody else is busy being exactly the same with purple hair, nose rings, drugs use, avoiding work, wearing counterculture clothes made by fashion labels, buying Apple products, never cooking and always eating junk food, not getting married, having abortions, joining antifa or #coonlivesmatter or other conformist gangs and so on.
    What would Emerson make of todays “individualism”?
    Telling the truth is a keystone of true individualism today in the West. A lot like telling the truth in the Soviet Union – a very dangerous thing to do with severe punishments.

    • I get bogged down reading the whole Wikipedia pieces on some of these people. Emerson is especially productive in his thinking, although he was an abolitionist. I may do more of his quotes in the coming days. There’s a lot to pick from.

      • Abolition was a very good idea. If blacks are worth cash, their owners will breed them to make money, no need to grow cotton, just grow slaves.
        As blacks now have a huge negative value, the state should cull the unproductive ones. By any means necessary.
