You might find the early 20th century Oxford sociologist JD Unwin an interesting read. Though, you may have to make due with a blogpost (albeit a well-written one w/ cited sources) summarizing J.D. Unwin's writing. I still need to acquire the text the below post makes use of. (EDIT: Looks like it's up as a pdf)

Essentially, civilizations that experience a "flourishing" of sexual freedom collapse in several generations.

Mentally ill people caught in arrested development make for good little consumers. And of course all the woke diversity points, inclusivity, etc. etc.

I put him in the same category as Lindsay in that he's great at summarizing and putting the goals, means, and practices of the wokeists into understandable terms while also being normie friendly.

Fantastic at getting people in the door but annoyingly, as with Lindsay, he won't go one step further and admit the problems we face today are a direct result of liberalism, classical liberalism, whatever you want to call it. A trifle because we already have others who do realize that and are writing and speaking about it so I'm not too upset over the centrism at the end of the day.

A transcript of Alex Kaschuta's recent speech at the National Conservatism Conference. The whole thing is a short read but here's what I thought was the key bit:

Equating freedom to the ever-expanding autonomy to investigate and pursue our authentic desires means enslavement to those capable of manipulating and creating those desires. The end state of both Left- and Right-flavored autonomy worship is enslavement to the state. No man is an island, and the managerial superstructure knows this. If things continue down this path, the only thing we will soon have in common is our dependence on the state/corporate behemoth.

Now, the only thing still standing in the way of slow enslavement is the continued existence of functional intangible commons in dwindling pockets of society. This will not be the case for long. We cannot avoid taking stock of the conditions that keep the lights on forever. Sooner or later we need to examine what actually creates thriving societies, order, children, and generational prosperity. [emphasis added]

This is our challenge. Yes, this way of looking at the world adds complexity. It lacks the simple charm and peaceful path to failure of “don’t tread on me.” It is values-driven; it is not neutral; it knows good things and shuns bad things; it brings with it new ways to fail. If it reeks of paternalism, good: your senses are working.

You had kids and want to get a vasectomy, eh, fine. I wouldn't want to but your line is secured so whatever. But actively celebrating it? Their kids are going to see that and internalize what's essentially an act signaling one's abdication of any interest in the future. If they celebrate a vasectomy to the point of bothering to make sweets and reddit posts about it just how do they refer to the acts of conception, birth, and child-rearing in the rest of their home-life?

They are just one of many celebrating self-sterilization. Just what does that signal to the zoomers and gen-alphas coming of age or coming into adolescence today?

Another symbol of the West's slow-motion suicide.

Arch for 40k, Tex (Channel name Black Pants Legion) for Battletech.

For TES, they're soybois but the Selectives Lorecast (at least, up to when I last listened, which was 6 or 7mo ago) does some nice deep dives into the lore and I can't recall them bringing any irl politics into the lore.

Scratch that, they use the they/their pronoun nonsense in reference to Vivec, not really a deal breaker but I'd just rather they not bring the pronoun nonsense in at all regardless of how justifiable it is

Tfw you learn all the movies you liked when you were younger were subversive pieces of propaganda.

I haven't seen it myself as a film, but an ex. that comes to mind is Pleasantville. Modern-day teens/young-adults screw up a perfectly fine 50s town with modern sensibilities

Too much computer time too.

Autism.

And holy cow how the heck are we in 2022 and I hardly see any commentators or journos touch on the autism connection. The number of autists who troon out is so grossly disproportionate I can't believe that's not being discussed more.
