It was a bit surprising to see that I had not updated the home blog in almost two months. Time flies fast when you are busy as hell. None-the-less, I have enjoyed reading a slew of pieces during that time, and here are a few of them worth checking out.
Adam Holland gets us started with an excellent piece on the racism of Pat Buchanan.
Bob has a piece on influential left-wing ideas that should have greater weight in our political debate. Sarah at Harry's Place has her list as well. Waterloo Sunset takes the meme in a new direction, and is worth a read as well.
Fat Man on a Keyboard has a fine piece in defense of Multiculturalism.
Marko defends himself against Davis Gibbs' characterization of his work in his new book "First Do No Harm," spawned from the debate at Modernity's on the subject.
Michael Totten has fine pieces worth reading on the conspiracy theories inherent in Assange's rhetoric and an interview with Giulio Meotti.
Martin has a piece on religious teachings and social justice.
In what has been a great year for pieces from Nick Cohen, here is his take on Mad Men.
Stephen Kizner, who believes human rights are just some western construct, gets a a reaming from Norm.
In what has been another great year of posts at Poumista, I give you another fine set of links that I spent far too much time reading over.
Terry Glavin has also been in top form, and I leave you with his post on Dilma Rousseff, Brazil's first female president.
The Contentious Centrist ends another fine year, and her discussion with Bob about a One-State solution was especially interesting.
Shiraz Socialist has a fine piece addressing the aimlessness of modern left-leaning thought.
Propagandist Magazine has been welcoming enough to host two of my pieces this year, and the mag has been an enjoyable read even when I disagree. Here is to another fine year, and they could use a few bucks if you have any to spare.
Graeme has another fine piece in his series on Black Metal and the extreme right.
