Mr Miliband said he was aware of the historical significance of becoming Britain’s first Jewish prime minister if he wins the next election, despite his atheism. Disraeli, the Conservative prime minister, had a Jewish heritage but was a practising Anglican.Expressing the constants and variables in mathy terms: [Jewish genes] + [hard-line Satanist/Gramscian beliefs] = [Jewish identity] [Jewish genes] + [Christian beliefs] = [Unperson] Or in one sentence: You don't have any identity unless you're a stark raving psychotic. Only bonkers genocidists exist. We've seen a similar formula in America with Lorena Sanchez, "the first Hispanic" to serve in Congress, even though non-Satanist Hispanics have represented New Mexico and Arizona since statehood. They didn't exist. And Ben "Nighthorse" Campbell was "the first Indian in Congress", even though Robert Kerr (a Cherokee) served with great distinction and productivity in the '30s and '40s. Kerr's influence and ideas made Oklahoma far more drought-resistant than neighboring states. And of course we haven't had an Indian as President or VP yet, even though Charles Curtis of the Kanza tribe was VP under Hoover. Those previous Hispanics and Indians didn't exist. Only wackos exist in this utterly wacked-out schizo world.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
