Samizdat = Politics

All Post Randomized

Doug Does 140…Poorly


“To be conservative, then, is to prefer the familiar to the unknown, to prefer the tried to the untried, fact to mystery, the actual to the possible, the limited to the unbounded, the near to the distant, the sufficient to the superabundant, the convenient to the perfect, present laughter to utopian bliss.” ― Michael Oakeshott, Rationalism in Politics and Other Essays

Politics X 2

“The central conservative truth is that it is culture, not politics, that determines the success of a society. The central liberal truth is that politics can change a culture and save it from itself.” ― Daniel Patrick Moynihan

Where Samizdat Equals Politics

vu-meterI’m surprised I’ve opted for a landing page with an avalanche of outsized graphics, but I really like how individual post are framed.
And there’s an ease in navigation that belies all those bodacious start page photos. Categories are important here and my only pretense in pretending to being even retro hip is to label political post, “Samizdat.”
If all toggles hold, post comments close after twenty-four hours. And while I often make right the misspelled word or orphaned link, I seldom note the correction. In fact once a post is affix to internet either it becomes that red-headed step child to me. Excepting copyright ©. Right.
