It's a good thing I'm retired, or this would seriously affect my work/eat/sleep-schedule.

Thanks for collecting this smörgåsbord of content.

Wait a minute. Let me get this straight. "The Right" nowadays rails against Big Money paying astroturf campaigns and advocates for unionizing?

Um.. can we also add "worker-owned heavy-industry cooperatives" to the mix? :) And can we also get a big, heavy serving of Marxist dialectics (as opposed to Hegelian dialectics) while we're at it? :) If we do, then "The Right" will be able to assimilate the last remaining sane communists, like myself. xD Think of all the (intellectual) wealth we will bring! xD Not to mention innovative political and economic solutions, some of which have been proven to work. #WorkersSelfmanagement #Kardelj

Throw in a little Chesterton and Belloc, add a dash of C. H. Douglas, garnish with a pinch of Oakeshott, and you're 3/4 of the way there.

Great list. But since we're talking about best right-adjacent longreads of 2024 I'm going to go right ahead and say you've missed one....Mine: https://grahamcunningham.substack.com/p/teach-your-children-well

"‘Schools in Crisis!’ has become something of a hot media button in much of the Western media - and not just in fringe conservative publications. According to a 2021 piece in the Washington Post, schools are “facing a crisis of epic proportions... test scores are down, and violence is up. Parents are screaming at school boards, and children are crying on the couches of social workers. Anger is rising. Patience is falling.”

Schools in crisis?…..are they not part of the very furniture of modern society; as much a part as its factories and offices? That vast infrastructure of buildings full of classrooms children and teachers. Kids spending their weekdays being taught by teachers – how could things possibly be otherwise? In this essay I try, firstly, to sketch an impressionistic snapshot of this ‘Schools in Crisis’ media flurry and then to dip a toe into the hazy waters of what could possibly replace them as the means by which society teaches its children......."

Pleased you liked 'Teach Your Children'. New Right Poast is - as John says - a great idea (and must be a very lot of work) and I have subscribed. You might - when you have time - also check out these two other essays from my 2024 output (I only post once a month):

The Dave Greene piece is probably one of the best, if not the best, pieces written on the subject of inventing new religions for the new age.

Honestly, it's been a dreadful year for substack readers!! That curtis yavin article? One of five he wrote in 10 months. Where did his genius and productivity go?

People are not writing anymore. They all have their 90 hour long podcasts where they drool incesantly about their cultural hot takes.

I joined substack to read some long and well written bangers. Not getting that fix anymore.

Podcasts are a plague, I agree.

Then again tbqh I find that I don't have enough time to keep up with all the Substacks I subscribe to.
