Future of the Wentworth Report
The main theme of this century is the new left versus realism. On issue after issue, the left’s postmodernists promote a narrative. If, as they often say, there is no objective truth, then they think they are free to create their own fantasy world. So they did.
Conveniently enough, their narratives reward them with political power and material goodies. Any opposition to their fantasy world is viciously suppressed.
Their political project has taken the West by storm in the last two decades. The new left has come to dominate the opinion-forming organs of society. It has marched through and captured most of the institutions — the media, academia, the bureaucracy, etc.
But their narratives are not based on truth. Their version of the world is politically correct, but not correct. Their leadership of society will end in horrible failure at all levels, if not reversed. To that end, every realist voice counts.
Despite how it may appear in the mainstream media, we realists are in the majority. We have both truth and a huge history of evolved cultural success on our side. Nonetheless, we are bullied and shouted down by a noisy minority of self-serving cultural Marxists at every turn, because they own the media.
The Wentworth Report was established to be a voice for realism. Drawing on the most interesting articles anywhere on the web, we aim to articulate the realist case and give readers the cultural confidence to say something. It’s a valuable project.
The site averages over 200 views of the main page per day. In addition, individual articles get passed around and people find stuff by searching, for one or two hundred views per day on average. The site has had over 300,000 views since it began, almost three years ago.
The Wentworth Report has never been promoted. People just find out about us. It’s a fairly intellectually demanding site, so our readership are generally better educated and more influential than most.
But I cannot continue doing so much. It’s time for others to take over, or to close the website.
I need to finish the climate change book. Yes, it’s real. The crucial error in the climate models has been found, the research is essentially done, and it is largely written up. I’ve been saying it’s “soon” for a while, but there always seems to be more that needs to be done. It is a tricky scientific and political project, the opposition will be ferocious, and it has to be correct and immediately convincing. Merely pointing out the error is not enough.
In addition, a possible new part time job will increasingly take up my time. We could do with the money, because climate research in opposition to the carbon dioxide theory of global warming pays very little.
Does anybody else want to take over or contribute to the Wentworth Report? Numerous people regularly email me with suggested stories, several of whom stay anonymous. I could give any or all of you the permissions to pop them straight up on the blog instead. You could just put the title and a link to the story, maybe add a pithy comment, or you could even excerpt the most interesting bits. It could become a collective website, like Catallaxy or Instapundit. We all want to read a site like this, it’s fun to post up interesting articles for others, so why not step up? Email me if you’re interested.
