Your favorite porn star did a parody video of your favorite government spying agency (SFW, actually):

I think you have me confused with CK.
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

From William Alan Brooks, Girl Gangs (New York: Padell, 1952):
All sexual murderers so far examined by real experts have been found to be psychopaths with a high degree of degeneracy, principally epileptics or persons with a high degree of idiocy (p 74).

How many books have you published on girl gangs? Yeah, goose egg, so I'll defer to Mr. William Alan Brooks.

(Actually, that book has nothing to do with girl gangs. It's a general study on how tough it is being a teenager in the 50s. Fucking publishers …)

I went to the hamburger stand and waited. I knew the Dagger Debs get there every day at 3. I sat at their table, knowing that would get their attention. "Lace" was clearly their leader. When she rudely ordered me to move, I told her how I don't take kindly to being bossed around. That's when Lace called on her muscle. Her name was "Patch", a one-eyed 6 foot tall blond, in full leather from her hat to her boots. She pulled her switchblade and came at me. I leaped backwards from my seat, pulling off my chain-link belt and flinging the buckle at Patch's arm. It wrapped around her hand and she dropped the blade. Then I flung her into a table and yelled "WHO'S NEXT!?!" Lace calmly approached me and said "Easy, honey, easy. I just wanted to see what you were made of." At this point I knew I was in.

Add some zipguns and scenes of doing goof balls and it's a JD classic.

You ever read or come across this? https://mises.org/library/menace-herd-o ... stes-large

I'm reading George Nash's history of postwar conservative intellectuals and he discusses von Kuehnelt-Leddihn a bit. The thing that struck me was that he describes von Kuehnelt-Leddihn as arguing totalitarianism springs from the Enlightenment (modernism) and the French Revolution, not some kind of perversion of democracy. Which is what Adorno and Horkheimer argued in Dialectic of Enlightenment. Just one of those neat and not-infrequent moments (occurring within a few years of each other, too) where a firm monarchist and radical leftist reach a common and harsh conclusion about something in the centre.
