Today's Word - Nomenklatura

Future members of the Soviet nomenklatura started out in the Young Pioneers, the Hitler Youth-esque brainwashing organization that replaced the Boy Scouts. From there, they graduated to the Komsomol, the youth wing of the Communist Party, before becoming card-carrying Bolsheviks themselves. At every turn, they were vetted for their loyalty to the communist revolution and their willingness to blindly follow orders. It was effectively feudalism; the nomenklatura fiercely promoted the interests of their Inner Party patrons in exchange for little pats on the head.  Modern American feminism functions in almost the same way.

Matt also has a good post here on an unrelated topic.  It is a review of Roosh's "best of" series, but he makes a point that I think every blogger, male and female, of a controversial nature needs to heed.

You NEED to publish your works in physical format not so much to "make coin" on it, but so that your best works of literature and thought are forever preserved and not deleted by some bureaucrat or Google-apparatchik.  It was the primary reason I published my "best of" book and is the primary reason you should be publishing your works as well.

I've thought about it. I have close to 1100 posts on my blog between 2004 and the present. There's got to be something in there that can make up a book.
