Weekly Round-up 10/21/2023
A dream of flight
Another week in the books!
This week's slate of articles was on the eclectic side, ranging from two very interesting intelligence reports on the American Expeditionary Force’s limited intervention in the Russian Civil War to a sober warning that we’re all about to die for the third time this week.
For those interested, tomorrow afternoon we’ll be having our second Patrician Ultraman Group (P.U.G.) classic game night, featuring Zombie Panic! Source for some proper Halloween fun. Last month’s game night was a blast, really looking forward to this one. Server details are available exclusively to P.U.G. members, though it's not too late to sign up.
On that note, I'd like to ask again for anyone who's not a paid subscriber already to please upgrade right now. I’m making eye contact with you. My eyes are welling up with tears, pleading. You’re trying to look away because its really awkward and uncomfortable but I keep moving in front of wherever your eyes shift. Passers-by are staring, they have no idea what the Hell is going on. Paid subscribers have access to exclusive history articles and posts like the Watch-alongs (we just concluded our first TV series, The North Water, the second series will be announced soon). The paid subscription is only $5 a month. The elite and prestigious Patrician Ultraman tier is only $15 more than the regular annual subscription and gets access to the classic game nights.
I've been putting out a lot of articles lately but I just can't work for free. I’m sorry to do this so often but every new subscriber makes a real difference to me, it really does go a long way to support my work. If just 1/4th of 1% of monthly viewers on this Substack became paid subscribers I wouldn’t need to ask. Please, if you've enjoyed the articles you've seen on this Substack so far, upgrade to paid right now.
There were a staggering 6 new articles this week:
Two intelligence reports from the American Expeditionary Force in Siberia, 1919 (Free) - Reproduces two very revealing intelligence reports written by a seasoned American diplomat attached to the American military intervention during the Russian Civil War. Examines the role that public morale, passivity, and dysfunction play in revolutionary environments, allowing small groups of unpopular revolutionaries to punch well above their weight. Please read these.
Watch-along #5: The North Water E5 (Paid) - The series finale of The North Water and final entry in this round of the Watch-along series, which provides live commentary and trivia on tv shows and movies. You can check out the first episode in the series here.
Do not intellectualize arguments for why you should be killed (Free) - More thoughts on the ongoing internet feuds about how to respond to the latest Israel-Palestine fighting. I think the solution is pretty clear: Don’t support either side (neither are friendly), but definitely don’t endorse the logic of decolonization that leftists are using to justify the attacks on Israel. This thinking is something that has to be actively opposed. That same logic can and will be used to justify similar attacks against us.
How to read history (Free) - Using the death of Michael Brown and the birth of the professional Black Lives Matter movement to illustrate how fake history is made. There’s only one way to short circuit this process.
ALERT: TURN ON THE NEWS (Free) - Hard-hitting analysis of the ongoing apocalyptic WW3 death collapse. If you don’t read this article you will likely be carried away by the storm.
