The modern right

9/11 made me finally break with the left-liberal worldview and start agreeing with conservatives on foreign policy (I had already long ago agreed with the right on economics). I finally converted from liberal-left to libertarian-right once I read the latter's arguments in 2001-02.




Introduction - What is the right?

What does "right" mean in the modern world? Let me suggest a definition:

By "right" on this page I mean people that generally support the west against its enemies. Not all of the links on this page could be called "right-wing". (I'm not even necessarily "right-wing" myself.) But none of these are anti-west.

According to this definition, there are many right-wing groups and individuals I disagree with and oppose, such as religious conservatives. There are even self-described "right-wingers" who do not support the west against its enemies, such as isolationists and Israel-haters. For a full discussion see:





Fancy a 50 minute introduction to what the right is, and how it differs from the left?
Here is one, covering a range of topics, from the brilliant Thomas Sowell.

The Jawa Report



  
(Left) From Google. (Right) From Star Wars Wiki. Neither from the Jawa Report.
The Saudi-funded Frankie Martin knows nothing about the Jawa Report blog, so he Googles it, finds a hostile claim that it is a "weblog comparing Muslims to Jawas", and reprints this as if it is the blog's self-description!
He then Googles Jawas, finds this Star Wars Wiki, which is nothing to do with the Jawa Report, and reprints its descriptions of Jawas as "typically short rodent-like" creatures, and "disgusting", as if the Jawa Report used this language when talking about Muslims!
This apparently is "scholarship" when you are funded by Saudi Arabia.

By "right" on this page I mean people that generally support the west against its enemies, for lack of a better term. Not all of the links on this page could be called "right-wing". (I'm not even necessarily "right-wing" myself.) But none of these are anti-west.

What a shower. Islamists and Islamic right-wing conservatives. And their western leftist enablers and fellow-travellers.

Who I block: I will debate almost anyone. I love ideas. I will not debate (and will block) people who do the following: (a) Make threats. (b) Accuse me of crimes. (c) Comment on my appearance. (d) Drag in stuff about me not related to the topic. (My professional career, my personal life.) (e) Complain to my employer. Yes, people do all these things.
