The Doom Loop, I
1. Dog and Man. The ancient contract between our two species has been breached. Dog breeders are creating sociopathic killing machines and mutants incapable of natural birth. Alexander Fiske-Harrison at Taki's relates the account of a 14-year old girl mauled to death by four beasts. As one commenter at the OP notes, the girl was probably menstruating though eating a meat pie in front of four feral animals would suffice. Man in our scientific age no longer understands Nature.
2. "A king out of water, in a dry and kingless age." Lawrence Auster died this Good Friday on the Western calendar after a long fight with pancreatic cancer, and receiving Unction in the Roman Rite. God rest his brilliant, angry soul. Unqualified Reservations remembers. (Friends of Lawrence are maintaining his blog, A View From The Right.)
3. The Last Psychiatrist gets drunk and posts about Social Security Disability. My line of work brings me a number of incidental contacts with this program. The taxpayer is being ripped off.
(Life is getting in the way of my favorite hobby, so I'm going to group more links and this seems a good category to post in seriatim. I've mentioned before about trying to strike a more upbeat tone, but the internet is where I go to be grumpy. Thankfully, I do have a life with positive people and much to enjoy.)
