Pining For Alternatives To The White Patriarchy

If this doesn't make you wish that someone other than white, Christian, European men had been the dominant force in the world, then nothing will.
Mexican archaeologists have discovered what they say is the first temple of a pre-Hispanic fertility god known as the Flayed Lord who is depicted as a skinned human corpse.

The discovery is being hailed as significant by authorities at Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History because it is a whole temple, not merely depictions of the deity, which have been found in other cultures...

"Priests worshipped Xipe Totec by skinning human victims and then donning their skins. The ritual was seen as a way to ensure fertility and regeneration," according to the AP.
Nothing says Social Justice quite like skinning slaves alive and wearing their pelts to bring fertility.

A curse on that blood-soaked imperialist, Hernan Cortes! If it weren't for him, we would all know the sustainable, organic, non-GMO equality of being flayed.

Reminds me that one of the most important safeguards against all this kind of idiocy is plain old common sense. And like conservative philosophy to which it is kind of a kissing cousin, it can't be pinned down in so many words as lefty intellectuals think they can do with their ideology.
So something I might have posted here before, a favourite quote from Roger Scruton, sorry if I'm repeating but it doesn't hurt to read it again.

I shall argue that the conservative attitude, and the doctrine that sustains it, are systematic and reasonable. Conservatism may rarely announce itself in maxims, formulae or aims. Its essence is inarticulate, and its expression, when compelled, is sceptical. But it is capable of expression, and in times of crisis, forced either by political necessity, or by the clamour for doctrine, conservatism does its best, though not always with any confidence that the words it finds will match the instinct that required them. This lack of confidence stems not from diffidence or dismay, but from an awareness of the complexity of human things, and from an attachment to values which cannot be understood with the abstract clarity of Utopian theory.

A lot of people don't 'get' it, I've had it called 'gobbledegook' among other things.
