    The final point being what? That Benoist has an opinion on Donald Trump? Yeh or nay? Yeah, that's obvious. Are you really this banal? I always assumed you were trying to be clever without committing to positions. Seriously, I apologize if that's not the case.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    That's good to know. I don't hate you or anybody else on here. My buddies come to me with questions and I tell them what I think, if that doesn't jive with their interpretation, my attitude is; "either they'll get over with it or they won't. I'm blessed with more good friends than a guy deserves and a big thumbs up to the BIG GUY upstairs. He gets all the credit. It's how I was raised. Gotta go, college football and I haven't eaten.

    I think we stopped taking clues from France after the mess they made of Revolution and WWII not so great.

    I know a Silicon Valley guy who tried to wise up the French to the Tech Revolution but could never get passed the protective Socialist mentality so we beat the $#@! out of them.

    There are people on here, moderators even, who think of me as vulgar and crude.

    Trump doesn't care what goody-goodies think of him, just as I don't care what vain people think of me.

    The Problem of Democracy would be an easy introduction. On Being a Pagan is a good but difficult read.
