NJ--no rating. Favorites, Morphy, Marshall, Anderssen. Played a lot as a teen, then let it go for 40 years. Trying to reconstitute myself as a chess player.

Meanwhile, let this forum serve as a refuge from wild-eyed loony leftism. Here there will be no admiration for Hugo Chavez, Castro, or any of the other tin-pot dictators admired by chess players from the safety of freedom-loving Western democracies. Here will be found a premise that most of the nations of the world today are governed by Godless fools. Ours, too, unfortunately.

I was also going to say some uncomplimentary things about Queen Pawn games, the Sicilian and the French Defenses, Semi-Slav games, and a few other chess matters. But as those are purely questions of personal taste, I have chosen to leave them alone.

Since setting up this forum, I have also had several novels published: "Bell Mountain," "The Cellar Beneath the Cellar," and "The Thunder King." For more information about them (and me), visit my website, http://leeduigon.com/

Update, much delayed: my fourth book, "The Last Banquet," came out last year, and my fifth, "The Fugitive Prince," I expect to be published sometime this Spring. For book covers and free sample chapters, visit my blog.

Update again: "The Fugitive Prince" is out now and the next project is "The Palace." Editing is well advanced, but we're still waiting for a cover.

Update: "The Palace" is in print now along with No. 7, "The Glass Bridge," with No. 8, "The Temple," waiting in the wings. The first seven are all available via amazon.com.

Update: No. 8, "The Temple," and No.9, "The Throne," are now in print, with No. 10, "The Silver Trumpet,"due for release any day now.

  playground player: <Esteemed Colleagues> We're laughing at these Far Left Crazy jerks: but they mean to tear down our country, they're serious about it, and we need to find a way to put them out of business.

This is the price we've paid for several decades of allowing people who hate our country to "teach" our children. Now they have a vast army of useful idiots to do their bidding.

Yes, I know it is serious. But it is too late to save America. Time for peaceful separation.

Let California become its own country, as with Dixie and Texas. The northeast and midwest can form "Yankeeland" or whatever you folks want to call it.

The upper great plains and desert southwest, or even individual states, can form their own countries.

I'm sure the Dakotas want nothing to do with the idiots running Minneapolis.

Another option would be to go back to something like the articles of confederation. The states would be highly autonomous, having all the powers currently held by the feds, but no jurisdiction outside of state lines. Each state would chip in troops for the common defense, but otherwise would function like separate nations.

Many phrases:

black and white picture
black and white TV
There you have it in black and white
black and white (any animal)
black and white (any article of clothing)
The rules are black and white
black and whites = police cars

I've kind of noticed ______ and ______ phrases tend to roll better with a long vowel word in the first position.

More bad news. (You must be tired of seeing my posts by now).

https://relampagofurioso.com/2018/0...

The crux of the post is that research shows family stability (and families are the building block of strong societies) is inversely correlated to the wife's sexual promiscuity.

So even if we somehow beat back woke progressivism, we still have the problem of feminism destroying social cohesion.

As long as women are half of the voting population, and soy boy simps are another 10% of the voters, feminism has a 60% voting majority.

This is one of the reasons I think America is doomed and nothing can be done to reverse it.

No only do we have to have idiot children (BLM rioters) come to their senses about the systemic racism canard (ain't gonna happen), we have to get women out of the workplace and at the altar at a young age, and more importantly, as close to virgin status as possible.

Seeing as progressives always think MORE progress to the Left is needed to save us, there is no way in hell they are going to vote to reverse the last 60 years of change.

The American experiment is doomed. And the end is coming soon. I don't know what it will look like, but it will be bad.

Plan accordingly.

  thegoodanarchist: And <OCF> I made an omission in my previous post.

<Some> women are traditional, and so the feminist majority I posited isn't quite there.

It is one of the reasons why elections have still been competitive this century.

As for why *anyone* of any sex or race supports the Dems, the main reasons are Cultural Marxist indoctrination in our educational system, along with the "Gib-me-dats" that appeal to the parasites.

It's why UBI got floated this time around.

It's human nature. People are easily brainwashed.

Not only that, the young instinctively rebel against the values of their elders.

Combine the rebellious nature with the cultural marxist stranglehold on the educational system, and you get "Occupy Wallstreet"/"Hands Up Don't Shoot"/"Veganism"/"BLM" etc.

"Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is older he will not depart from it."

Which is Biblical. Which probably means it is *already* a done deal.

Warning, this link is Not Safe For Work! (And IIRC, I already posted it before):

https://relampagofurioso.com/2016/0...

Unwin predicted it. Before him, Spengler predicted it. Societies/nations/countries are birthed. They thrive under patriarchy. They stagnate when all foes are vanquished, which leads to the overthrow of patriarchy, the unleashing of unrestrained sexuality, followed inevitably by stagnation and then death of the society/nation.

Honestly, I used to think it was the enemies of America. Globalists. Communists (from the former USSR or PRC), domestic Marxists.

But that is likely wrong. It seems like it may just be human nature. When all enemies are vanquished, when scarcity is solved, then you get uninhibited sexuality/feminism/liberalism. It's all that remains to be done.

Maybe humans just need enemies to vanquish. If *real* actual enemies are all vanquished, then fake enemies are inventes.

Like The Z Man said, there are no more witches, so the Left has to invent witches. It explains the Jusse Smollett hoax. It explains the insanity of thinking America is hopelessly, systemically racist after we've done more than any other country in history to help minorities. Etcetera.

It all fits together.

  thegoodanarchist: < playground player: <thegoodanarchist> If the young instinctively rebel against the values of their elders, why aren't they rebelling against their "teachers" in the schools and colleges?>

Believe it or not, I of course already thought of this question.

The answer is really quite simple.

Elders = Older Family Members.

From my personal experience, mainly they are mothers/grandmas. They used to ubiquitously do the child rearing. Not anymore, as women are programmed to go into the workplace. From a very young age.

Also, women are natural born socialists. They don't *naturally* devote themselves to American ways. They must be taught to do so. And teach their kids to do so. Which won't happen as long as they are competing with men for careers and climbing the corporate ladder.

And of course if they are devoted cubicle slaves their kid's early years will be farmed out to a surrogate.

Anyway, in the educational system, students are almost never related biologically to their teachers. They come into class as strangers to the teacher, being told by parents to "learn", to "pay attention". In fact, they are encouraged to learn from a young and non-rebellious age (like 6).

Kids are shipped off to school. They have a good time there. They come home, and most parents don't even delve into what the kids learned! Parents need to de-program their kids almost daily, from the indoctrination in schools. But it almost never happens.

Then there is the cultural indoctrination as well. Nowadays even the best of intentioned parents let there kids get "baby sat" by the TV. Which has ALSO been driven Leftward by Hollywood, for decades.

It cannot be done in a shocking, quantum-leap type of fashion. Else it will wake the masses.

This is exactly why the Cultural Marxist (CM) indoctrination has been... slow.... Frog in the pot and all. Until this year. Finally, the CMs see that they have a window of opportunity. That's why we have riots, destruction of monuments, stand-down of supposedly conservative leaders. Autonomous zones. Etcetera.

Anywho, I am old enough to remember TV in the 1970s.

Gradually, the first generation is moved slightly to the Left. Not radically so, just enough to disagree with the previous (parental) generation.

Then the next gen is pushed a bit further to the Left. It happened right on TV. In schools, and so forth.

It's the Dialectic at work, which I've spoken about, and posted about, previously.

Again, just remember the frog-in-the-pot analogy.

  playground player: <thegoodanarchist> Anybody seen the Soviet Union around lately?

Once upon a time all these Far Left crazies were a minority. I grew up in the 50s: these people would've gotten very short shrift, back then.

But they were focused on their mission, they never took no for an answer, if one tactic didn't work they tried another, and they just kept working on it till they reached the point we're at today.

We could do the same.

Never give in, never surrender, never concede an inch of cultural ground. We can do this.

Meanwhile, an awful lot of LA residents totally disobeyed their mayor's commandment banning all fireworks: they lit up the sky.

<Long lines at NJ Motor Vehicle Commission Long lines were reported as New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission locations reopened to customers Ö>

After all, a "plan" for government would be unthinkable, and start a bad precedent.

<Drivers were already in line overnight at several New Jersey MVCs after a day of long lines Ö>

If staying the night, always bring a designated social distancer. You don't want someone getting closer than 6 feet while you're asleep.

<A New Jersey woman upset about the long lines at a New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) office on Tuesday assaulted two employees, broke computer equipment and kicked police officers>
