    This podcast made me reflect how each of our people, on the dissident right, is a unique flower of personal talents, skills and insights with distinctive artistic tastes, which when they perish will constitute an irreplaceable loss to our cause and to the world. Francis, sobran, etc.
    Their people by contrast…are masturbating on Zoom.

    I would recommend to everyone the Twilight Samurai. It’s part of a trilogy including Hidden Blade and Love and Honor by the same director. They are based on the short stories of Shuhei Fujisawa in the Bamboo Sword. It’s his only work translated to English and runs very pricey but worth it. I got it when very cheap so in buying it you will make mine go up. The Samurai Who Loved Me, also based on the works of Fujisawa, is by a different director but almost as good.

    Mr. Taylor aspirates the h in white because it’s consequential. If you say “hu-ite”, people will know you are referring to a group of white folks, whereas “wite” is reserved for wights, the undead, as in barrow wights! This distinction could save you precious moments of reaction time.

    I don’t have an interest in Japanese cinema and have never been exposed to it, nevertheless, anything these two scholars discuss turns into a fascinating talk and this was no different. Thank you both . . .

    A couple of comments, not on Japanese cinema but on the white European birthrates segment: In the late 80s I was an American working at Commerzbank in Germany when my German husband and I had our first child. Shortly after we received about DM 1600 in “Kindergeld” from the German govt, an incentive designed to encourage births. I was surprised because I hadn’t even heard about this program. There was no promotion or campaign at all, the monetary help was just provided very quietly. This was a shortcoming of the program I believe, especially because it was a time when Germany was still for Germans. For example, the newborns of guest workers in Germany (mainly Turks) were not given citizenship despite being born in Germany.

    In Hungary today, the government has made the birthrate a noticeable issue and along with monetary assistance it has helped. Birthrates are up several percent even though the program’s been in effect for just a year or two.

    Too bad Germany and the rest of Europe didn’t do the same. Things might have turned out differently.
