    From Global News: Signs intended to create racial tension posted at University of Toronto By Mark Carcasole Reporter Global News A series of controversial posters already spotted on school campuses in many parts of the U.S. and in Edmonton and Saskatoon have popped up on at least one campus in Toronto.

    But being for all nations and people means you have to change your religion and they will change it also to suit those other people who it was never really intended for. Look at the differences in how people believe in Jesus around the world for example or how the Africans made their own of it. Then before you know it Jesus is a mere prophet and according to you not even a good one because we don't want to offend anyone by saying anything else do we?
    How's that going around to other nations thing working out for you anyway? I'm with the Amish even if they aren't with me.
    Africans ended up here through slavery in the beginning not because they were persecuted about their religion or their belief in Jesus and most even today are probably Muslim or closer to them. Five Hundred Thousand dead whites is still good for me.
    All those Catholics mostly came for economic reasons the same as a lot of other people today come here and a lot of them have nothing to do with Jesus at all, but we have to change in order to accommodate them. Then we have to accommodate their beliefs by demeaning ourselves and our own. So regardless of certain churches travels to bring in new people to "their church' doesn't make them MY people. The Catholics seem to have used that nation wondering more for conquering than for their lowly profit making prophet Jesus.
    Would the Hebrew slaves have elitist thoughts for wanting their own land? Did they ask the rest of the world to join them? Did God tell Moses to rescue every slave on the planet or his own people?

    But being for all nations and people means you have to change your religion and they will change it also to suit those other people who it was never really intended for.

    Yes, that’s fine. The point is that Christ offered a universal moral law: the 10 Commandments in the spirit of loving your neighbor as yourself. But it says nothing about the way you live the rest of your life.

    If we could get every there, the world might be a pretty nice place, with Christianity preserving the best of each culture. It did in every European sub-culture it touched. German’s love of nature and forests – the English choir and love their language, the Italian Renaissance. The list goes on and on.

    God loves diversity. Christianity preserves it and history, too. It’s part of the reason I’m against globalism and open borders. We turn into aweful neutered mush of gray, with no history and no hope.

    Then before you know it Jesus is a mere prophet and according to you not even a good one because we don’t want to offend anyone by saying anything else do we?

    This has already happened and more than once. It was the Arian heresy, which got folded into the mother of all heresies, Islam. Protestants of different branches tend to revisit this.

    It is not globalism that makes Jesus a mere prophet – it’s a common problem almost as old as Christianity because I think we don’t want to deal with such massive issue as God walking the earth.

    One of the Popes in the early 20th century is on record as say that modernism is the sum of all heresies. In this case globalism just fold in an old but good one.

    How’s that going around to other nations thing working out for you anyway? I’m with the Amish even if they aren’t with me.

    Two of the fastest growing Christian populations are China and Africa. On the whole, not bad, I’d say.

    And when was the last time you saw an Amish terrorist? I’d say they past the good neighbor test, anyway. Most Christians do, even the ones that shred up the theology to almost unrecognizable.

    All those Catholics mostly came for economic reasons the same as a lot of other people today come here and a lot of them have nothing to do with Jesus at all, but we have to change in order to accommodate them

    You didn’t have to accommodate them and for most of American history, they weren’t. But they did fit into the Protestant model because the moral framework was the same. They turned into just another denomination at that point.

    The US worked because it used the Protestant framework and the first big wave of others mostly fit. Today is a nightmare.

    Would the Hebrew slaves have elitist thoughts for wanting their own land? Did they ask the rest of the world to join them? Did God tell Moses to rescue every slave on the planet or his own people?

    Christianity, when lived and understood properly forms concentric rings of priority. God, family, friends, community, country, and world, in that order. I can’t help the kid in Africa if got my hands full with my family, friends, and community and it’s okay. The globalist feel good version inverts that order and thereby perverts Christianity.

    I don’t need to be God’s chosen or whatever to love my history, my family, myself and want to preserve it. My heritage is best preserved here, just like someone from Africa is ultimately best preserved in their own country. God creates the nations and globalism in that context, is the Tower of Babel project again.

    FWIW, Arianism didn't turn Jesus into "just another prophet."

    It said he was not quite God, which is a pretty darn big step above just another prophet.

    What's even simpler to understand is that when guys like the nutjobs in Sutherland Springs and Las Vegas kill many people, it makes arguments to restrict Muslim immigration look less rational and more simply motivated by bigotry. I mean yeah, per capita, Muslims definitely seem to be the reigning champions of mass murder, but most people have a tough time with proportions, and, in any case, this stuff makes it harder to refute the inevitable "but wypipo do bad stuff too" argument against restricting Muslim immigration.

    And I realize Sailer is geekishly snobby and seems to pride himself on not posting about things that non-Sailer people are actually noticing and talking about, but something like what happened yesterday deserves at least a short post in a timely manner.

    It’s not “seems”, it is. I’m bit surprised you’ve never seen the comparative religion charts that floats around the alt-right. It is 1400 years of piracy, slavery, and murder, all started by the founder. Only atheism in the 20th century managed to exceed their body counts.

    Literally, it’s like importing a bunch of communists from Russia while it was the USSR and being shocked, shocked, shocked that they’re attacking capitalist targets. Islam is much better understood as competing political system with a religious component than stand alone religion like you’re probably used to thinking about with Christianity.

    Islam, when given enough mass, will attack Christianity or any society founded on political principles that are not Islamic. It’s that simple, unfortunately. We’re a special category of special needs right now to ignore history’s painful lessons on that point.

    Not at all. The back stories with mass shootings are always absolutely fascinating. Without exception.

    Very much agreed. It’s just this one isn’t the “Christian goes berserk” story so beloved by the lefties.

    [T]he white people you’re thinking of don’t go to college...

    Your complaint seems to be to be about the collapse of the white elites who should be funding such things.
     
    I'm thinking of the typical middle-class whites (what's left of them) who own the hardware store, practice medicine, work as plumbers, own restaurants, and so on all over what used to be the U.S.A., from Omaha and Spokane to Jacksonville and Little Rock. There are plenty of them in otherwise horrible places, too (almost twenty per cent of the electorate in Santa Cruz voted for Donald Trump...).

    These – not the so-called elite douchebags running hedge-funds and promoting mental illness and sexual perversion as salutary, nor the poor, dumb bastards working in McDonalds or even the few factories left who live paycheck-to-paycheck and don't know or care any better – these people are the one's who do still send their kids to college, who do indeed have enough money to do so and to influence other matters (you think the dude flipping burgers at Hardee's or wrenching at Jiffy Lube is paying Mexicans to remodel his kitchen?! – he cannot afford it, and he mows his own lawn, if he even has one...). The fat bastards who own and operate the local electrical contractor, the chain of car washes, the accountant's or upholsterer's joint; those who sit round drinking beer, watching football, and swearing up and down about how much they hate high taxes and love the marines – these are the people who could make an impact if they really meant any of the things they say (they don't, and they know it – they are the one's picking up the Mexicans from Home Depot each day to work for peanuts, not some coder in Silly Valley; they are the ones bemoaning their crops rotting in the fields if they are forced to pay market wages to Americans and protect those Americans from pesticides; and they are the ones who have an illegal alien working as the receptionist for their dental practice so they can make money off the invaders. They are the one's sending their brats to universities full of evil, to be brainwashed. The professed conservatism is all a dog-and-pony show – that was my point.

    ’m thinking of the typical middle-class whites (what’s left of them) who own the hardware store, practice medicine, work as plumbers, own restaurants, and so on all over what used to be the U.S.A., from Omaha and Spokane to Jacksonville and Little Rock.

    There’s still struggle with a category error here. Owning a retail store or restaurant or plumbing is middle class work. They do not require degrees. Practicing medicine is professional work and was taken over by the upper classes just as soon they didn’t want butchers to compete with surgeons for their business by enforcing the college degree.

    You’ve kind of got a main street USA idea that hasn’t existed since the 1970′s for sure. Lots of low class people hanging around even back then, too.

    The fat bastards who own and operate the local electrical contractor, the chain of car washes, the accountant’s or upholsterer’s joint; those who sit round drinking beer, watching football, and swearing up and down about how much they hate high taxes and love the marines – these are the people who could make an impact if they really meant any of the things they say

    I’m not sure that there are really that many of these people around. You can’t actually own a functional electrical contracting business, accounting, or upholster and drink beer all day. I have encountered a few old farts that vaguely fit the description, but it’s not like they’re super thick on the ground, in my experience.

    Most small business owners with a significant net worth will be needing to skip a lot of football games to get the paper work done.

    Great title for a book that’s already been taken: You can’t drink all day if you don’t start in the morning.

    In no particular order, and doubtless omitting some of the nonsense you're writing vis-a-vis some axe or other you wish to grind with me:

    - Yes, when anyone alludes to another's "drinking all day" it's accepted by long convention that the speaker means the referent literally pours liquid down his throat incessantly, and not that, for instance, he may spend his Saturdays lazing about and swilling beer. Contextual clues that the speaker is placing the "drinking all day" with the time the referent spends speaking with others and pontificating or complaining help to establish this usage.

    - Asia has had a vastly larger population than Europe at least since the industrial revolution, and many very credible scholars present compelling evidence this has been the case for all of human history. At best, yes, it is true Europeans may at one time possibly approached twenty-five per cent of the global human population. While this amount may not be best described as a "tiny minority" (a point I concede for the sake of argument and because of its own imprecision), it is decidedly not any kind of overwhelming percentage, either: it is a very solidly a minority, and, history aside, my more important point that we are now a tiny and rapidly shrinking minority stands.

    I come here to get away from womanly leftist hysteria and disconnect from reality.

    The city council in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan recently put up a few billboards slamming "White Privilege" . This in a small city (295,000) that is now 66% White, having come down from 80% just 10 years ago. African immigration has increased from less than 1% to 3.5% and all Asian pop. is at 10% (up from around 5%) in that same 10 years.Caribbean imigration took off around 2008,as did South American.The Canadian Indians & Metis make up 12%. As the city becomes more "diversified" Whites from European/American stock (like me) are seen as a liability. The city police recently put on a "Meet The Muslims" event,and their spokeman was a Muslim officer to the force. Years ago a popular canoe race on the South Saskatchewan River(that winds itself through the city)that celebrated Louis Riel and the early pioneers, was scrapped in favour for a Dragon Boat Festival instead. I expect the Pioneer Days weekend in the Summer to someday be replaced by something much more "diverse". The city's politics are mixed - Conservative,Liberal and NDP (Marxist socialism) but the province is 50% Conservative and those in small towns and farms generally hate Trudeau . The new federal Conservative Party leader is from Saskatchewan but he may prove to be a weakling against Trudeau. Most Canadian "conservatives" are too soft....

    The new federal Conservative Party leader is from Saskatchewan but he may prove to be a weakling against Trudeau. Most Canadian “conservatives” are too soft….

    That is, unfortunately, very weak.

    I said it before, but Canada was sort of British brain fart. There’s no historically unifying events and unfortunately, most WASPs were only marginal in their Christianity. Scot Presbyterians, for instance were losing their Christianity as early as 1900. Yeah, we’ve got a lot of religious nutballs in the US (me included probably), but has kept some lifeblood in the Christian aspect of American culture.

    I’m trying to remember where I read it, but most of Canada conservatism has strong streak of both anti-Catholicism and anti-Americanism in it. With out those two forces to define itself, it seems to fizzle. It’s bit like Europe. The conservatives don’t disagree with liberals on socialism, they just disagree on the amount. It’s difficult to be opposition when you mostly agree with the other guy. Plus part of a universal anti-Americianism is a post 1960′s emphasis on being nicer than us unwashed clods to the south. That don’t make waves attitude because that’s not who are (for real) doesn’t help.

    Montreal used to be the center of the Canadian Jewish community, but when the Quebecois took over from the English speakers and went nuts with all the French only stuff, a lot of the Jews too off. A lot of those left are the ultra-Orthodox who don't care much about politics. The French speaking community of Quebec, driven by the church, was historically quite anti-Semitic.

    The French speaking community of Quebec, driven by the church, was historically quite anti-Semitic.

    But they do have Pokemon points of being the downtrodden community in Quebec until the separatist movements.

    It’s gotta to be difficult to know what to feel. They were oppressed by WASP jerks, just like Jews, with separate schools and elitist government positions/universities they could not go to.

    On they hand they were terrible pond scum for thinking the Jews are going to Hell and we should convert them (the horror of taking Christianity seriously) . Many or even most social climbing WASPs conveniently didn’t take their Christianity at all seriously, so that’s better of course on “anti-semitism” scale.

    So many difficult decisions on what’s best for the Jews. ;)

    A lot of those left are the ultra-Orthodox who don’t care much about politics.

    Yeah, because French Canada is so totally anti-semitic you can be uber Jewish there.

    Anyway, the separatist movement is a model for expunging white guilt. At first, there was much mincing and shuffling and concessions thanks to previous said guilt. After the 2nd vote, Canada came up with a positive exit strategy that involved any province that insisted independence to be well…independent. Anglophone Canada was done after 3 decades of temper tantrums. I don’t know of anyone in Canada that still feels bad about it. Unfortunately, they moved on to bigger fish guilt wise.

    6.7% of Canadian Jews live in female-headed single-parent families
    14.6% of Canadian Jews live below the poverty line. This percentage rises to 15.7% for Canadian Jews aged 75 and older, and to 20% among Quebec Jews.

    After that the numbers fall way off fast.

    Montreal--26% nonwhite--is about 5.5 percent Two Percent.

    Vancouver, B.C., about 4.12 percent Two Percent.

    Thanks for this info, it’s appreciated.

    I suspect Jack D’s other information, that it used to be more Jewish before the separatist movements, is correct. My parents took us to a deli that had smoked meat and the driest cheesecake on the planet on St. Catherine street growing up. There used to be more than one and my Mom went to one that was quite huge when she was student nurse there.

    Also, knowing the profile of my anglophone WASP grandparents, I suspect Montreal in the late 19th century and early 20th century was an upcoming financial city. Lots of social climbing to do there and money to made. Toronto was…Toronto a central government city conveniently not Montreal.

    My WASP relatives, who all started in Montreal, drifted out as the separatist movement took hold. It wouldn’t shock me that the Jewish community drifted away as well, with Toronto being the obvious new choice.

    It sounds vaguely like you were raised in a Reform or Calvinist tradition. I’m not that. :)

    It’s clear from the Gospels that the apostles were to go out to all nations.That’s where the globalists screw with everyone. Christianity is for all nations, but it does not follow that we import all nations or impose a form of the same Christianity on everyone or have zero rules about who belongs to a community. It takes the universalism of Christianity and gives a monstrous form that has little to do with the original in any Protestant, Orthodox, or Catholic tradition.

    But being for all nations and people means you have to change your religion and they will change it also to suit those other people who it was never really intended for. Look at the differences in how people believe in Jesus around the world for example or how the Africans made their own of it. Then before you know it Jesus is a mere prophet and according to you not even a good one because we don't want to offend anyone by saying anything else do we?
    How's that going around to other nations thing working out for you anyway? I'm with the Amish even if they aren't with me.
    Africans ended up here through slavery in the beginning not because they were persecuted about their religion or their belief in Jesus and most even today are probably Muslim or closer to them. Five Hundred Thousand dead whites is still good for me.
    All those Catholics mostly came for economic reasons the same as a lot of other people today come here and a lot of them have nothing to do with Jesus at all, but we have to change in order to accommodate them. Then we have to accommodate their beliefs by demeaning ourselves and our own. So regardless of certain churches travels to bring in new people to "their church' doesn't make them MY people. The Catholics seem to have used that nation wondering more for conquering than for their lowly profit making prophet Jesus.
    Would the Hebrew slaves have elitist thoughts for wanting their own land? Did they ask the rest of the world to join them? Did God tell Moses to rescue every slave on the planet or his own people?

It’s not entirely clear that they even believe in God or the Divinity of Christ in many cases.

    Did females roam in herds, thus being able to help one another? In contrast, maybe some males roamed alone looking for mates or running from rivals.

    Among humans, male domination and female domination both comes with pitfalls.

    When masculinity dominates, society can be overly aggressive and wage wars and bring ruination. Like Germany in 20th century.

    When femininity dominates, society can be overly defenseless and fail to resist invasion. Current EU under Merkel. No resistance to elite globalism and mass Third World invasion.
    When female power gains, it has to castrate native male power. With the masculine principle suppressed, a positive outcome could be less outward aggression. But if pushed too far, it means the loss of defensive and survival instinct. So, the society becomes invaded and taken over by peoples with aggressive masculinist will. Sweden is a perfect example of this.

  • In Saudi Arabia, the government, led by the 32 year old crown prince, is busy arresting rival princes, including Prince Alwaleed, one of the world's richest men. Here's Alwaleed's smaller yacht Kingdom 5KR, formerly known as Trump Princess back when, as Hillary might say, Donald Trump was a real billionaire in the 1980s. Prince Alwaleed...

    "Locking up a Royal" was never "unthinkable." They executed the prince who assassinated his uncle King Faisal.

    I’ve been waiting for people to start tussling over power again violently. That is probably the least surprising development, with the surprising bit that it’s taken this long for a nation of too many princes to attempt to consolidate power.

    Meanwhile, what little I know about the Saudis is that they have to work with their religious nut cases to maintain power. That a crown prince is obviously willing to over rule them over something seemingly so little as women driving might have been a step too far.

  • @benjaminl
    I agree but I also think you can slice this issue a different way, and here's how I divide things up. Either:

    Position 1. The good, the true and the beautiful exist only in our minds and not in nature, and so
    none of us has any real right to elevate our own such conceptions over anyone else's, because no individual's will or desire has any better claim to authority than any other individuals.

    or

    Position 2. The good, the true and the beautiful are real things that exist in nature, independently of what any of us might think at the moment, and so each of us is responsible for recognizing that certain things are really better or worse, independently of our own wills or desires.


    In my scheme, liberals and the left and everybody else on Team Enlightenment coalesce around Position 1, due to the foundational premises of autonomy and egalitarianism. Everyone else is driven to Position 2, and identified as intolerable reactionaries, due to the insistence that Nature constrains the individual will and desire.


    The distinction that you draw between "real" gayness and "unreal" transgenderism seems to be a common view of what I call "old-fashioned liberals," who believe in personal autonomy and equality, but feel compelled by conscience to acknowledge objective reality even when that is inconvenient (here Alice Dreger, Ray Blanchard, Michael Bailey).

    But isn't it striking how powerless and outnumbered such old-fashioned liberals seem to be these days? The Woke Furies and the ever-multiplying taboos suggest that for so many people, it just feels right to elevate autonomy and equality to supreme values, and repress all the hatefacts and hatethinkers.


    I hope I'm wrong in my analysis, and that the "old-fashioned liberal" position of acknowledging reality, while respecting autonomy and equality, wins the day. It seemed to work so well for so many years. But it just doesn't seem like things are moving in the right direction for that.

    Your excellent analysis of the 2 un-compromisable frameworks is spot on. That is the dividing line between what modern Americans call liberal and conservative thought.

    Position 2 is not exclusive of either autonomy or equality. The Enlightenment notions of equality are twist or extension of a position 2 concept, that says objectively, we are equal in dignity before our Creator. Christianity, completely based in proposition 2, says we have free will, ie automony. That said, if a society has moved almost 100% towards position 2, it will express authoritarian properties.

    I hope the center holds, too. But history is dismal and depressing on the point. Once we imagine we can bend the world to our pleasures and imagination, it doesn’t stop until the environment changes enough where it’s not possible. Nobody (or hardly anyone) in the early Middle Ages had the luxury of promiscuity. The tranny stuff unfortunately is about late stage decadence and indifference, an environment that allows those holding position 1 to take it to extremes.

    Life is currently more of a challenge for a Syrian or Honduran peasant than it is for me but that doesn’t mean that they have more of a claim to American Citizenship than I do.

    The point is that settling a nation, carving it out of wilderness, is much more difficult than just showing up to a reasonably open, already developed nation at later period in time. At least 25% of potential colonists went back the first year at the time of founding. Slavery was introduced to the Americas in part because most European peasants were not interested in farming in the middle of nowhere. Europe was way better than colonial America and it makes sense that only few ethnic groups had any interest at all in the place.

    There is a vast difference in the viewpoint of the descendants of Ellis Island and those with a majority of ancestors here before 1890 or so. “We’re a nation of immigrants” is about Ellis Island immigrants basically taking on control of the government and history and creating a more hospitable environment and narrative for themselves. Ellis Island was closed way too late, I think. Now of course, we’re collecting the world like they are live Pokemon and the result are entirely predictable. The descendants of white settlers shot in their church by an imported arrival who drank the narrative. And that’s just the tip of it.

    I look around and feel like my back is against the wall, in a world where my ancestors did amazing things in a bid to mostly live their lives without aristocrats running them. Trump is just so awesomely American in so much that he “gets” us. Hopefully we can get any sort of immigration changes through permanently. We’ll see.

    And the thing that follows from this is what? Having Mayflower ancestors makes you more of an American than Buffalo Joe or me? What if it's Mayflower on one side and Palermo 1906 on the other? Do you get 1/2 credit? What if your ancestors were Virginia cavaliers who spend their time ordering around their Irish indentured servants and black slaves - do you get negative points for ancestral hardship? Should American Indians get super credit for having been here for 10,000 years and living completely off the land without even iron tools?

    All through the 19th century, no one gave a damn about American history - Mt. Vernon fell into ruins, Monticello was saved only because Lafayette wrote to his friend Levy. Then once the Ellis Island crowd started showing up, suddenly people were interested in proving that they were "more American" than the newcomers and you get the DAR and all these other "I was here first" organizations.

    So this was about the worst possible response to that comment possible. You might as well have shouted out you sunk my battleship because that was clearly a direct hit.

    2. There's an attempt to bandwagon onto the #MeTooism to gain attention. "I'm a victim!" Lots of exaggeration going on as a result---I saw one white girl I knew on Facebook complaining that some black guys catcalling her at a 7-Eleven was a #MeToo moment.

Young female celebrities change like chameleons from one publicity tour to the next: first they're all about their sexuality, then all about their relationship, then all about being flirty, etc. It's the new feminism: a woman is always what she says she is at the moment, her past doesn't matter, and everything must always be viewed positively, etc. So if they dress like a hooker for a red carpet event, that's them being confident in their body and sexuality, but if she starts covering up that's her being classy and classic, etc.

A member of the ruling class, he viewed natives as a "subject race" and ensured their self-determination would be decided by "the first race in the world".

    "It must be brought home to them", Rhodes said, "that in future nine-tenths of [blacks] will have to spend their lives in manual labour, and the sooner that is brought home to them the better".

    Things that surround you are only as valuable as the society around deems them valuable.

    Diamonds in their rough state are not attractive. Nor are they useful if you want shape stone tools or do anything practical. While they top the hardness scale, they cleave easily. Any sort of pressure and they break. (My Mother’s diamond chipped under normal domestic conditions.) And interestingly, they also burn in normal temperatures in a flame with an oxidizer or just extra oxygen. You end up with graphite. So fragile too because they’re unstable.

    In the end, I’d say the Africans locally got the better deal. Diamonds are interesting, but they’re sort of faddish gemstone, making it big when diamond industry figured out to market them to the masses and throttle supply in the 1920′s. In terms of a resource, it’s not like they losing oil or something. It was good deal for them, really. The West was kind of the dope on that one.

(Don't know the circumstances, but his political activities probably didn't help.) I've never heard him argue for a global white empire--I think he's quite content to leave Asia to Asians, Africa to Africans, Arabia to Arabs, etc.

    megalomaniacal fantasies about some global white empire
     
    I don't think there's a lot of megalomania there. If the US had a white nationalist government, with the White Nationalist Party controlling both houses of Congress, while European countries had at least moderately nationalist governments, and NATO got expanded to include the Eastern Slavs (Russia and Ukraine - I know it sounds like fantasy, but if Romania and Hungary can be members of the same alliance, or if Serbia and Kosovo can simultaneously lead accession talks to the EU, then why not?), then you'd already have the "white empire", however you'd call it.

    Now of course it's unlikely that anybody even remotely "white nationalist" could win the US presidency (Trump is not one, as is obvious), much less control Congress, but probably nobody liked by any of us here (not even citizenists or whatever) will control any of the European governments (not the major West European countries, at any rate), so it's all moot. But if we're occasionally fantasizing about what our governments should do, why can't Spencer indulge in his own fantasies? They are not quite megalomaniacal, for example they don't contain plans for conquest.

    >megalomaniacal fantasies about some global white empire or whatever

    It's as much a white alliance of different nations as a white empire, not really megalomaniacal as much as a vehicle for thinking about the big problems we (all) face in the future, as a minority

    I think Richard Spencer is doing a lot of good within the US but he seems to be consistently wrong about national identities and sentiments elsewhere in the White world.

    Non-degenerate men also support women who wake up from their former degeneracy and guide them into better possibilities going forward. Even if we do consider the Current Year to be a tad on the hysterical side.

    Of course that assumes we know how to handle women and their emotions/reactions.

    But I guess virtue signalling about the manliness of abusing the topiary, as well as oneself, is more important than warning younger people from experience about degeneracy.

I didn’t believe him either and he had no proof.

    From an energy conservation/survival point of view, it’s pointless to have mating couples inflict damage on each other. (Or have sex with the same gender) Fighting does happen male to male, but usually most species are doing a bit of size up, rather than lots of actual damage.

    I'm sorry. I assumed that anyone who read my remarks about chimps would have been familiar with chimp beatings and chimp fertility. It has been known for at least a decade from the work of Jane Goodall and others. It isn't controversial. It may turn out, of course, to have been incorrect. But I didn't just make it up or quote some Web loony.

    I have occasionally cited as a fact something - and was wrong. I try now to be more careful. If you had checked, you would have found millions of references to the observation of male chimp violence and increased fertility, in less than a second. As I said it isn't an obscure observation.

    Yeah in many ways the Amish are pretty incredible. They have a TFR > 6, I believe, and while other subgroups in the US may have TFRs that high they mostly manage it by welfare state parasitism. The Amish do this while earning their own bread, however. They successfully compete in commercial farming, a risky, low margin business, while eschewing much modern technology. I expect if there was a nuclear war they would inherit what was left of the earth.

    Mormons are doing OK too, and not just in the demographics department: I note that Kip Thorne, the most recent physics Nobel laureate (and very deserving) is a Jack Mormon. However I think they are in a lot of danger right now because they don't realize the secret to their sauce: they keep trying to convert Africans and other rabble to their religion, and they keep trying to earn the approval of the American public at large. If they don't take a deep breath and back away from the Universalism they're going to end up like the other Christian faiths.

    If they don’t take a deep breath and back away from the Universalism they’re going to end up like the other Christian faiths.

    At one point, Catholic families were known for breeding like rabbits and insisting that Catholicism belonged to every nation on earth. The word Catholic means “universal” in Greek.

    I know it doesn’t look like it in the modern era, but low fertility rates and the concept that morality applies to everyone have no relationship to each other. And nothing in Christianity says: import foreigners on government because “nice”. It says go out to all nations.

    Anyway, Mormonism pre-1970 was quite adamant that blackness was curse and no blacks were allowed to be leaders, even though they allowed conversions.

    Mormonism has a very strong family centered culture, on based on respectability. I suspect most people would not be thrilled to be on regular rotation of hosting home worship services, despite admiring the lifestyle.

    If you don’t think you need to be billionaire, over worked Greek (Italian), who just needs a women to fill out his workaholic life, let’s not go down the road that beating up women is exactly they want. Rape fantasy is out there as a genre. It might be out there more as entertainment has had to devolve into sensationalism to try to attract eyeballs. But it’s not even close to universal. If you find a woman who really digs being beat up, you’ve found yourself a mess of problems, including a woman who is unlikely to be a half decent Mother.

    Is it okay to be White and be producing more than a replacement level of offspring? Not at Unz.com.

    Mormons, Orthodox Jews, quiverful Christians.

    I get that people who are anti-White wouldn't like them. But I don't get that people who are pro-white aren't crazy about them. (Okay they are crazy about them but not in a good way).

    But I don’t get that people who are pro-white aren’t crazy about them. (Okay they are crazy about them but not in a good way).

    The explanation is pretty simple, at least to me.

    The alt-right is broad grouping of people who would not ordinarily be mixing. We’re all here, in one big hot mess, on “those websites” because the social taboo on discussing racial and gender differences is so overwhelming that no honest discussion can be had elsewhere.

    Many pro-whites, like Richard Spencer are modernists by worldview. Some even go so far as want the socialism and everything they see around them minus the wonders of diversity that the West has imported in the last 60 years or so. They want to be atheist/agnostics, they want to not worry if cousin turns out to be a little (or a lot) loose in sexual side, they want their own sexual habits to be unencumbered, they want their weekends free, they want the government to cover them in their old age.

    In their defense, they do see that modernism not working, or otherwise they won’t be pro-white. They willingly address one of the worst problems to date of modernism. That is, European societies complete lack of social cohesion to the point where they invite and pay for the barbarians to live next door.

    However, pro-whites won’t go any farther than that in their thinking. They like the rest of modernism, so it’s hard to do anything but say “Yippee for white DNA!” “Westerners are free!” “We’re so advanced that we’re open on the gay thing” “And have more babies!” (<–This would be the sum of Richard Spencer's thinking on the subject, a single man, as far as I can tell.)

    Meanwhile, anyone who has strong religious faith (including those dreaded Jews) are having the large families. But that religious faith requires so much more than their comfortable modernism does. Modernism and Christianity are view points on the world that are inherently at odds.

    So rather look, in security, to see if there's something there in that Christianity thing, all the pro-whites can do is snip at it and be little crazy themselves about it. Christianity, even executed at far less than perfection, challenges the core of who they think they are.

    It's been my contention for a while that alt-whites (pro-whites) will have to move towards Christianity, even if it's merely to drop their hostility to it. Modernism sterilizes and atomizes our society. The barbarians are being let loose because 2000 years of the truths and rituals that create social cohesion are being ignored or angrily rejected in the name of comfort and ego.

    Blacks tend to proclaim “pride” in their race, because that is how they are conditioned socially in the United States (actual Africans tend to identify by nation or tribe). And most don’t really know their origin in any case.

    Although I’m sure a few black-sympatico types may say it, I’ve never heard a normal Asian utter such a thing in the U.S., largely because, as you point out, they tend to identify with their ethnic origin, rather than a nebulous catchall category that has been advanced by “activists” and largely rejected by orindary people. Even “Hispanic” has at least linguistic commonality.

    As for lack of “white pride,” perhaps a visit to Stormfront may prove to be edifying. And much like Asians, whites who tend to evince ethnic pride in public do so along similar lines - “proud to be Irish,” etc.

    You get no argument from that that the mainstream media drips with anti-white sentiments (often by "good" whites). But the construct Mr. Sailer created (or quoted) whereby ONLY whites are condemned for ethnocentrism is patently false.

    Indeed, he and others might argue - plausibly - that whites are at the bottom of the mainstream ethno-morality scale, but that's not even completely true either. When you watch a film such as "Akeelah and the Bee," you can see the ethnic hierarchy of goodness in the mainstream media clearly - black girl is the heroine (with an old, wise black male mentor), the Hispanic male is the harmless, cheerful sidekick, whites run everything, including the Spelling Bee (they are the "system," I guess), the mixed white-Asian boy is the (cheating) antagonist, and the biggest villain is the overbearing, over-pressuring Asian dad (there is even a moral hierarchy within the "Asian" category in the film - when the TV viewers condemn the Asian boy, an Asian viewer chimes in and says "That kid is KOREAN! I am Chinese."

    There is a lot of loony posturing over the Hollywood casting couch scandals of Harvey Weinstein. But certain truths are ignored. Much as I hate to get involved in this dispute, it falls to me to set a couple facts straight.

    Harvey Weinstein is a Jew. This has allowed many of the anti-Semites who lurk hereabouts to reveal themselves. This is a Hollywood scandal and Hollywood is a Jewish company town. If there were a pervert or sexual predator in Hollywood who wasn't Jewish - how likely would that be? There don't seem to be any accusations about the Amish, the Sherpas or the Montagnard Boat People. Finding Jews in Hollywood doesn't prove much.

    It is possible that the Jews are especially vile towards women - that they are a clan of rapists. But I've never heard of that in all the movies that Jews have made about themselves. On these sort of issues my go-to authority is Steve Sailer. So what is it Steve? Are Jews preternaturally obsessed with sex - and act on their obsessions?

    If you look at rape statistics the race you would expect those who are 'bad' with women would be Africans and African Americans. The religion of rapists would be Muslims. Jews just don't show up prominently in the public sex crime statistics.

    I'm not in the movie industry but I have spent a lot of my life involved in Opera. It is not unusual for young women to acquire a role in opera through their sexual charms. I suspect that this sort of thing has gone on in Italian Opera for centuries. There are some parts that almost no one can sing (e.g. The Queen of the Night) and there are others that Mozart wrote such that almost any girl with any kind of voice could handle (e.g. Susana or Cherubino in Le Nozze). How is an impresario to choose among the hundreds of young women who show up at the auditions? You know the answer to that question.

    Weinstein didn't invent the practice of taking advantage of girls who want to play dress up and go on the stage.

    Now for something a little more controversial. Girls like to be abused. Not all and not in all cases, but in human beings many females long for a 'strong' man to control them. This is the unspoken secret - that women like men who take advantage of them. Read Richard Feynman's books. He discovered that he was more successful with women at bars when he treated them badly. Or you could just look at the ads on the Web. Hundreds of thousands of women advertise that they want to be tied up and beaten by a 'strong' man. Contrary to the notions of accepted society, a taste for BDSM is far more common than either homosexuality or transgenderism.

    Females who sexually respond to being abused are probably acting out patterns laid down before humans were human. Chimpanzees (our closest relatives) behave this way. The female chimps usually get beaten up by the male chimp as part of their mating rituals. Not all females get beaten by their male but those that do seem to become more fertile. They have more baby chimps. If you know anything of Darwin you can see where that leads. Females who are beaten, out-breed those who escaped that fate, and come to dominate the gene pool. This does not seem to be the pattern among bonobos - but we descend from chimps not bonobos.

    Most of the girls who have been victimized by Hollywood producers knew exactly what they were getting in to. Those that didn't were possibly not the smartest ones. As Henry Kissinger discovered - power is sexy. A fat ugly middle aged Jew can get young girls - ever was it so.

    Girls like to be abused. Not all and not in all cases, but in human beings many females long for a ‘strong’ man to control them. This is the unspoken secret – that women like men who take advantage of them. Read Richard Feynman’s books. He discovered that he was more successful with women at bars when he treated them badly.

    Women are attracted to strong men to protect themselves and their children. Women who are attracted to long term relationships with abusive ones have less children, in poorer health (it’s hard to recover after getting beaten to a pulp), and their chances of reproduction are less assuming they survive their Dad. This maybe why African women aren’t too keen on the married state in some sub-cultures. The chances for them and their children are better in looser or even go it alone situations.

    If we insist on some sort of bastardized evolutionary theory for why it’s “ok to beat up on the de women folk because they like it”, let’s at least examine the situation fully. Evolution theory only works to the extent that the offspring survive and then reproduce themselves. It doesn’t make any sense, unless you’re picking up tips from players in bars who have no intention of having children and probably aren’t going to get married.

    Chimpanzees (our closest relatives) behave this way. The female chimps usually get beaten up by the male chimp as part of their mating rituals.

I thought that was so well known I didn't bother to list a reference. When I looked it up I found not quiet three million references in two thirds of a second. It is not an obscure factoid.

    What’s more, their movies suck, even the “brainy” ones.
     
    Compared to what? There's no accounting for taste but Hollywood movies are one of the few remaining export worthy products made in the USA. Almost no one overseas has wanted to buy an American car for 40 years now but Hollywood is still the gold standard in entertainment all over the globe.

    It's possible that 100% of studios operated on the "pay to play" system but I think in the current witch hunting atmosphere we would hear about it if that was true. Instead, after the initial wave of serious abusers like Harvey, they are now going after guys who once upon a time pinched a girl's behind or made a dirty joke. If there was a deep vein to be mined they wouldn't be going after the slim pickin's so soon.

    And it's not true that the actors who played along willingly are in no position to squawk now. In fact they are in a perfect position to do so - all they have to do is pull out their victim cards and say that they were coerced - even as they were saying yes,yes,yes in their hearts they meant no,no, no. No one will dispute them in the current atmosphere. A number of Harvey's "victims" have already said this and no one has thought less of them for it. If they were later seen socializing with Harvey, continued to date Harvey, etc. this was all the result of PTSD. How dare you blame the victim! Every time the Japanese suggest that some of the Korean "comfort women" might have been professional prostitutes to begin with, the Koreans hold another demonstration - no the comfort women were all 100% pure innocent virgins kidnapped by the evil Japs and anyone who suggests otherwise is a monster. Morality plays are always black & white - no shades of grey allowed.

    Compared to what?

    Hollywood’s Golden Era. My kid’s “My Little Pony” series. Any YouTube channel at random. Take your pick. Almost anything is better than the drek their producing.

    Because in real life, most morality is black and white. People just don’t like that, thus the need for a gray all the time. It’s possible in situation where two people are conflict, both of them are wrong. That seems to be the most realistic concept – all black hats duking it out over something they should completely not want.

    The lefties so in love with Islam never seem to note that Muslims hate them just as much. More even, because they’re usually atheist or do not believe in any sort of traditional human sexual mores. (It’s not clear the average Muslim is too hung up on that either, but it’s important cultural currency)

    Anyway, lefties and Muslims are an awkward alliance that’s mostly premised on a mutual hatred of Western Civilization and literally nothing more.

    Uber driver?

    What's going to happen with all those idle hands when the driverless cars make all these guys redundant? We can't even find anything constructive for our own home grown deplorables to do with their time. Hence "disability," premature retirement funded by SSI, SNAP, etc made slightly more tolerable by distraction of cheap electronic entertainment or numbed by prescribed opiates & other psychopharmaceuticals

    Back when Trump tentatively pulled back the welcome rug for citizens of certain Muslim countries a little bit for 90 days, our local city's newspapers had breathless reporting about the hardships for the innocents inconvenienced by the policy. To be sure I'm certain they're actually probably harmless mostly non-terrorists, no matter how irritating and resistant to assimilating they are. Many may hate & resent us or harbor terrorist fantasies against their hosts & sponsors. But only a small minority, probably less than 5%, would actually transform their terror from ideation to execution.

    The best examples our local #FakeNews could find of these vibrant newcomers that were inconvenienced by Trump's policy, and how they are actually enriching our community were a couple part-time Uber drivers. Reading between the lines, one has to conclude that many of the others that they did find are moochers depending on exclusively public support, for a refugee retirement in one of the most expensive corners of the country. Trump might say with regard to our local Pravda, "They're not sending their best propagandists..."

    By a weird coincidence, I was talking with my Dad about this subject before seeing the news online.

    That brought up the issue of Uber sponsoring driverless cars. I had brought up real security risks of only needing to hack a semi to kill. The whole idea is garbage for multiple reasons;today’s terror attack only highlights the dangers in reducing the personal investment.

    People frequently talk about the loss of trucking and taxi jobs that will result from the automation of driving. RethinkX, in a 77-page report, concludes that 90% of all driving in the US will be TaaS (transportation as a service) by 2030, although that will utilize only 60% of the cars. The good news is that the average family will save $5,600 per year in transportation costs, keeping an extra $1 trillion per year in Americans’ pockets. Think of all the time that will be freed for activities other than driving, not to mention the traffic jams that will be reduced. The authors believe that freeing time now spent commuting to work, plus faster transport times, will lead to an increase in GDP of between $500 million to as much as $2.5 trillion. Public sector budgets will benefit because highway infrastructure costs will fall, and vast amounts of land will be freed from parking lots and publicly owned right-of-way properties next to highways. Of course, governments will lose as much as $50 billion in gasoline taxes as we shift from internal combustion engines to electric and other alternative forms of power systems.

    The really bad news is that a lot of people will lose their incomes.

    The report projects that the adoption of TaaS will come about in typical technological adoption fashion: slowly and then seemingly all at once. The authors talk about the end of individual car ownership. Why would you own a car if it was far cheaper and more convenient just to pick one up via an app on your phone? Not owning a vehicle frees a lot of garage and parking space and might even eliminate the hassle of picking up your kids and getting them to and from their various activities. Of course, the system will work much more effectively in urban and suburban areas than in the rural world.

    And it is not just the six million taxi and truck driver jobs that are threatened. Automated driving will save some 30,000 lives per year just in the US, which is something to be applauded. But it will also dramatically decrease the number of people going to emergency rooms from automobile wrecks, reducing the need for healthcare workers. Since cars won’t be in wrecks, the number of people required to repair them will be radically reduced. There are 228,000 auto repair shops in the country, employing some 647,000 workers (at a minimum – data from BLS). When a new car will last for one million miles and have fewer than 30 moving parts, those auto repair people are going to be like the Maytag repairman in the commercials of my youth: very lonely and increasingly unemployed.

    If driving is TaaS, then automobile dealerships are in trouble, as are most car salesmen and the 66,000 people who work in automotive parts and accessories stores. What about auto insurance salesmen? And all the gas stations that will not be needed? (When an automated car gets low on electricity, it will simply pull into a spot and replug – automatically, of course, aided by robotics.)

    The US auto industry employs 1.25 million people directly and another 7.25 million indirectly. Not all driving jobs will be lost, but the authors estimate that around 5 million will be, with a reduction in national income of $200 billion.

    And if we need fewer cars? That shift would put a lot of automotive manufacturing companies and their workers under severe strain. I’m not certain how the authors arrived at the number, but they estimate new-vehicle annual unit sales will drop by 70% by 2030, to around 5.6 million vehicles versus the 18 million that will be sold in 2020. Ugh. If we actually do see wholesale conversion to electric vehicles, US oil demand for passenger road transport could drop by 90% or more. Oil production companies may need to figure out how to make life work at $25 per barrel, if that’s the case.

    AM:

    Fewer pregnancies does not necessarily mean less sexual activity, per se. The two possibilites that immediately spring to mind are (a) increased use of contraceptives and (b) a trend toward alternatives to classic coitus that are unlikely to result in pregnancy[1]. Either of the aforementioned two factors and likely some combination of both would seem entirely plausible.

    Additionally, as another poster alluded-to, homosexually active males account for a vastly disproportionately high percentage of cases of sexually transmitted pathogens.

    A citation for anonguy's claim would be nice. Is it clear that it is pregnancies that are lowest, as opposed to merely births? (The latter, obviously, could be accounted for by abortion.)

    If today's adolescents and/or young adults are actually cavorting sexually with each other less than previous generations did, then I wonder: How much, if any, of the answer might lie in the explosion in the availability and consumption of pornography over the past two decades or so? How many teens and twenty-somethings are substituting autoeroticism enhanced by Internet smut and/or "sexting" or "phone sex" for actual flesh-to-flesh experiences with others?

    [1] Some examples:
    - An increase in females being pressured and often coerced into submitting to the dangers, pain and indignities of being anally penetrated has been reported for years now. See:
    http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/health-news/women-being-coerced-into-having-sex-researchers-say-with-persuasion-normalised-9671395.html

    - While I cannot provide any citations offhand, I most certainly have heard/seen reports/claims of increased oral sex among even early adolescents at least since the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal made headlines. There have been many stories in the news about serious diseases, especially cancers, spreading through oral sex.

    Actually, no. Calling Islam worshiping the same God as Christians an over simplification pushed by people (quite often Christians, unfortunately) attempting to equivocate. The name change to Allah is highly suggestive that there’s something different at the core of Islam. Interestingly to me at least, Islam’s need to keep Christ (along with Mormonism’s and almost all new regions since 33 AD) that suggests the impossible and mindblowing might be the truth: the Son of Man and the Son of God did actually walk the earth and rose from the dead.

    That said, your post is the kind of reductionist, materialist thinking that has infected the West. Zombie=Christ. Come on. Collectively, your ancestors weren’t that stupid. You’ve got intelligence, but refuse to use it in a Mad Magazine sort of way.

    What on earth are you talking about? “Allah” is “god” in Arabic, cognate with the Hebrew word “el”

    I’ve never heard a Jew express doubt that the Christian deity is the same as the Jewish one (the trinitarian dispute aside), and vice-versa. Yet some Christians seem invested in claiming Allah to be a different god altogether. This is especially bizarre given that Arab Christians (100% unsurprisingly) refer to God as Allah, just like we call him God, Germans call him Gott, Spaniards call him Dios and Frenchmen call him Dieu. Religious terms tend to vary according to the language of the faithful. I assume you do not attend mass in Latin let alone Greek, Hebrew or Aramaic. I trust I won’t have to say anything else about the name “Allah.”

    Trust me, Islam holds even less appeal to me than Christianity does, although I think Muslims in general are closer than we are to the ideal approach on gender roles.

    Yeah, my dad gives thousands of dollars to his Catholic church every year. I think it's totally foolish but that's the tip of the iceberg with him. I think he's just trying to buy his way into heaven. He's mostly deaf so he can't actually hear anything the priest says, and he doesn't socialize with anyone after mass. He parks his car, walks right to his pew and leaves immediately after mass ends. I think he said he likes the hymns. He is a very strange man.

    As for the girls dressed like putas in mass, that's definitely not just for the Mexicans. I went with my dad to mass in his decidedly non-Hispanic parish and apparently most girls now think that covering up the midriff and ass cheeks constitutes Sunday's Best.

    Vatican II was only the coming out party. The ground work for the current chaos of the Catholic Church was laid well before then.

    What the US Bishops did to the US Mass is not actually called for by Vatican II. Much more modest and sensible changes to the liturgy were intended.

    The Bishops came home and literally ignored the clear edicts of Vatican II, setting up corporate like structures that are today’s Catholic church. In other words, the Bishops in 1962 were already ready to rebel against the Church and ruin it- and none of them were Boomers.

    I suggested parish parties around North American Feast Days and Saints, they chose to offer more bible study on iPads…

    From my experiences and discussions, it’s clear that authentic Catholicism embarrasses and is of little interest to most Boomers now controlling parishes (along with Gen Xers still around). The TV generation wants to be like everyone else and in the US that’s being a Protestant. Thus the Bible study on iPads rather than even mention the Saints.

    Basically, I’ve given up on trying to be part of any significant ministry or community within a formal parish. I seem to have found a small cluster of authentic Catholics locally that I’m grateful for, but the youth education even at their small, conservative parish is depressing, one size fits all, Up With People sort of affair. If given my druthers at even one parish, I’d save the money on the religious director and just buy a subscription to Church Militant and have volunteers lead post-viewing discussions. But that’s not the way of things right now.

    I suspect many clergy through most of time might not have been the best and the brightest. Certainly, though, as opportunities outside the Church exploded, the “I’m not sure I’m actually good at anything else” problem increased significantly, perhaps exponentially. Whoever is left of the youngest Boomer and what Gen Xer clergy is about ready to face a crisis of massive proportions, whether or not they can handle it.

    None of it would be stopped, although I agree that Islam is Christian heresy. It needs Christians to stand up and say it, rather than pussy foot around it. But that’s not the majority of Christians alive right now.

    Catholicism is in a death spiral in the West that roughly matches Western society. Pope Francis is a very late expression of the lack of faith of the vast majority clergy, particularly the Bishops who run the Catholic church’s structure.

    We’ve been lucky to date – the apostasy of the clergy and laity, which has been brewing since at least the turn of the 20th century, has only been now expressed in the papacy of Pope Francis. Even that is rather mild, consider how off the charts non-believers many Bishops and Cardinals have been.

    Yet another wondrous experience of regular Mass attendance is to hear a priest give his big retirement Homily pushing for women priests (complete heresy) and listening to the thunderous applause. We might have been the only family that didn’t clap in parish holding at least 500 people.

    Right now, maybe 7 million faithful Catholics exist (ie actually believe the teaching), out of an estimated total of 70 million. Translate that percentage to the clergy and the wonder is why more cuck related permanent changes haven’t been made, rather than one-time PR foot washing events.

    This is a fair observation, but Islam will corrupt those people in a way that Protestantism, which retains the core tenants of Christianity, will not.

    Can you imagine the drug cartels eventually morphing into drug/religious cartels? It’s gonna be great times if the underlying religion approves of the violence.

    Also, there’s reason to think that you’ll end up with Islamic Mexicans who don’t change their underwear and come up with all sorts of icons anyway.

    One of the keys of the spread of Islam I think, is that it’s a religion that natural atheists can really understand and practice.

    Christianity requires understanding a few mindblowing paradoxes and willingness to sort through the natural and the supernatural, if it’s not done completely ritualistically.

    Islam takes all of that complexity away. “If it happened, God did it personally!” No Trinity, no God/Man weirdness, and no sacrifice. Just an inspired dude in cave telling you to do some nifty rituals to stay on God’s good side. Jesus is there as one righteous dude (although if you take the Gospels seriously, it’s impossible to hold that view of Him) – and top this – 4 wives! Killing is okay, if you decide it’s for God. (Sometimes it goes as far as lieing is okay, depending the sect).

    Atheism depends on reductionist thinking, so too does Islam. I suspect as the decades go on, we lose a significant number of Western atheists to Islam.

Islam takes all of that complexity away.


    Islam was a reaction towards simplicity; it was a violent simplification, which turned out to be an over-simplification. Stevenson has somewhere one of his perfectly picked phrases for an empty-minded man; that he has not one thought to rub against another while he waits for a train. The Moslem had one thought, and that a most vital one; the greatness of God which levels all men. But the Moslem had not one thought to rub against another, because he really had not another. It is the friction of two spiritual things, of tradition and invention, or of substance and symbol, from which the mind takes fire. The creeds condemned as complex have something like the secret of sex; they can breed thoughts.

    ... They suffer, as I have said of the palm-tree in the desert, from a lack of the vitality that comes from complexity, and of the complexity that comes from comparison. They suffer from having been in a single movement in a single direction; from having begun as a mood and ended rather as a mode, that is a mere custom or fashion. But any modern Christian thus criticising the Moslem movement will do well to criticise himself and his world at the same time. For in truth most modern things are mere movements in the same sense as the Moslem movement. They are at best fashions, in which one thing is exaggerated because it has been neglected. They are at worst mere monomanias, in which everything is neglected that one thing may be exaggerated.

    Foreign religions often hold great appeal for religiously confused Westerners. Look at the great flowering of Buddhism in the 1950s and 1960s. In the early 2000s Islam may fill that role (especially among women, I should think). Few of those converts will be atheists; most will be those disenchanted with Christianity.

    You forgot the nifty points in Islam regarding taking what you want from non-believers, leveling a tax on non-believers(that you don't kill outright), the fact that the testimony of a believer always trumps non-believers, etc. Not to mention once your a muslim, your in for life - it is easier to leave a criminal gang than their gang.

  • “I like to be clean and change my clothes,” he said. “This is a clean religion and that’s what originally drew me to it.”

    Observing Mexicans in stateside Catholic churches, it’s not entirely clear how much of the actual religion they are attracted to. Catholicism has many rituals around important life events, and are, for the most part willing to not ask too many questions, particularly around Baptism.

    If you want comical, attend a First Communion Mass that blends a bunch of Northeast butch older women with Hispanic families getting First Communion (happens about 2nd grade).

    Dour pant-suit women mixed in with pews of Hispanic families with young women dressed up for a street corners, sour looking young men sometimes in suits but most often not, 2nd graders in their finest, with a sprinkling of a few American families scattered about. An odd slice of Mexico with Northeast stoicism and manners in the same place. I walked away from that scene thinking “That’s not going to last.”

    What I do know is that universally Mexicans do not pay for their share of the American Catholic parishes. Bishops like them as warm bodies, so they don’t have to face total collapse yet, but Boomer Catholics are still paying the bills. In another 15-20 years or so, it will become obvious how lopsided the donations of have been. What Mexicans remain will not be offering Bishops easy travel and cushy lifestyles.

    What you described sounds similar to Ecuador. My sister lived in Ecuador for a couple years in the mid 2000s. My folks went to visit her and she took them to Sunday Mass, both for curiosity’s sake and the fact my family is Catholic. My dad said while the priest was celebrating Mass congregants were coming and going in and out of the church as they pleased, and visiting with each other in low voices while Padre warbled on. I’m no expert in Latin Americana but I get the impression Mass is as much a social call in Latin America than a religious observance. Probably more so
    , @AndrewR
    Yeah, my dad gives thousands of dollars to his Catholic church every year. I think it's totally foolish but that's the tip of the iceberg with him. I think he's just trying to buy his way into heaven. He's mostly deaf so he can't actually hear anything the priest says, and he doesn't socialize with anyone after mass. He parks his car, walks right to his pew and leaves immediately after mass ends. I think he said he likes the hymns. He is a very strange man.

    As for the girls dressed like putas in mass, that's definitely not just for the Mexicans. I went with my dad to mass in his decidedly non-Hispanic parish and apparently most girls now think that covering up the midriff and ass cheeks constitutes Sunday's Best.

    USA is different. Religion and State are separate.

    In Germany, or Russia or Israel they define a set of official religions and the government
    pays for the upkeep of the temple/church/synagogue and the salary of the officiant (Mullah, Priest, Rabbi). At tax time one declare what is one's religion. Claiming to be atheist may or may not get you out of paying the religious tax.

    Perhaps Mexico is the same way. If one expects the Federal government to pay the Priest, one would not see the need for donations to the church.

    What kind of Russian ties did he wear, then?

    Here is the RUS angle:

    As mentioned, however, the name ‘Russia’ barely appears in the indictment, whereas ‘Ukraine’ is mentioned dozens of times.

    “Manafort and Gates generated tens of millions of dollars in income as a result of their Ukraine work. In order to hide Ukraine payments from United States authorities, from approximately 2006 through at least 2016, Manafort and Gates laundered the money through scores of United States and foreign corporations, partnerships, and bank accounts,” the opening page of the report reads.

    Wasn't this promised to be a probe into Russia somehow hijacking US democracy like a thief in the night? So where is the Russian connection in the indictment? It's not to be found. This 'oversight' is already resonating in the Russian capital like a bad joke.
     

    “So where is the Russian connection in the indictment? ”

    The Ukraine is right to next to Russia and they don’t speak English, duh. That’s good enough.

    “What kind of Russian ties did he wear, then?”

    Don’t be silly. The issue is that he’s probably at least tried Russian dressing and possibly liked it, thinking it was 1000 Island. (Oh, those dirty commies).

  • @NickG

    With computers, tests can be made dynamic, that is, each test taker can have a question that has unique values
     
    That's how the Private Pilot's licence exams I did in South Africa were administered. There are 7 exams - principles of flight, aircraft general, flight planning, air law, meteorology, human performance, navigation - with a pass mark of 75% each. The pilot exams - private, commercial, and Airline Transport - in South Africa are still ICAO (international civil aviation organisation) compliant, so licences are valid elsewhere.

    The exams are done on a PC in an authorised exam center via a secure web link to a central repository, a central bank of questions. So no 2 sitters will be presented with the same questions. You get your results immediately when you finish each exam. This system also removes the need for set exam times. Each centre offers a number of booked slots throughout the day. Each PC has a video camera over it and the recording is kept.

    If you 'game' the system by knowing the answers to most of the questions in the bank - you will pretty much know the syllabus. I thought it was a good system. There was an incident where a ringer sat exams for others, so they have tightened up the ID validation and the number of authorised centres are kept very limited.

    “The exams are done on a PC in an authorised exam center via a secure web link to a central repository, a central bank of questions. So no 2 sitters will be presented with the same questions.”

    This is how the series of 3 tests for the Enrolled Agent are administered, along with presenting ID and a finger scan. The test were multiple choice, but they were tough. (D. “All of the above”, E. “None of the Above” F. “Both A and B”)

    It works really well. Kinda of surprised most of the world hasn’t moved to something like this. Yes, once you memorize all the test questions, you’ve memorized the material, so it’s all good.

    Yeah, all of them. They just haven't been as capable on acting their Greed and Psychopathy as Europeans over the past 500 years or so.

    You don't know much about history do you.

    The Mongols killed ~5% of the entire earth's population during their run. By hand!

    In today's numbers, that'd be ~300 million people.

    Given that they missed out on Africa, Western Europe, North American and South America, that 5% number means that they must have killed a 20-40% of the people under their control, maybe more. Hitler and Stalin were pussies compared to the Khan!

    Africans do massacres all the time. They're just not very good at record keeping and nobody much cares. Also, blacks are violent as hell, but they can't organize a tea party, which slows down the killing.

    The Mongols killed ~5% of the entire earth’s population during their run. By hand!

    How do you know this true? I’ve seen enough academic BS when it comes to past populations and genocides that it’s impossible to tell. That they raped, pillaged, and killed their way across Europe and Asia is not under dispute.

    To call it 5% presumes you know with some accuracy a)the world population at the time and b)numbers of the dead. I’d like to know how they’d know either. Rough estimates sure, but I could come up with 5% by taking the extremes of tiny population versus largest estimates of killed or…I might come up with 0.05% taking more middle of the road numbers on each side.

    In today’s numbers, that’d be ~300 million people.

    But that’s not how many they actually killed. There’s no “inflation” with people.

    Yeah, all of them.

    Anonymous is quite right here. You want us to look at the differences in the races, okay. But that means all of it. Godless whites kill in factories, in the millions. Godless blacks are lucky to mount village attacks, as you note. They might rise to genocide if you can get them all white provided cell phones, but that’s a maybe. Yes, black mob violence, no doubt.

    They never did. They invented the study of modern science. (Not kidding, Google a list of early scientists and find out how many were Priests or Monks.)

    It’s us moderns who imagine a computer we bought and the rough equivalent of 10th grade education in science makes us smarter than anyone who ever lived.

    If you want people to stop pretending the races are all the same, I’d start with the personal banishment of the root fallacy, which is that we’re smarter than everyone who ever lived in the past.

    The big error behind rationality is that while intelligence is generalizable (high IQ people pick up new skills faster then low IQ people, all else being equal), knowledge is not. Being rational will not allow you to understand the world more effectively then people who put in the effort and focus on empirical work. This is hard and means that you cannot learn everything but there is no magic shortcuts.

Authors that can manage it as a “native language” will find work a lot of work with the lefties, who measure themselves in books/papers read. Even better if the author’s intellectual level is so low that they don’t need to take up drinking to manage career in it. Ta-Nehisi Coates appears to have that plus the black Pokemon points plus an exotic name. He was made for writing columns for the Atlantic and then parting fools from their money a second time.

    I used to read and comment on his blog. Then I realized something was wrong when someone got banned for holding the exact same position as he did (effective altrusim). Looking back I realize what the problem is- he isn't honest. Yeah, a big claim. I'll give an example:

    http://slatestarcodex.com/2013/10/20/the-anti-reactionary-faq/

    How could possibly anyone worry about crime or ethnic conflict? 'You'll note both of those things have increased since 2013. In short the people he was attacking look more right about human nature and the future then him. Given he openly states that

    -you should update beliefs on new evidence
    -the best evidence something is true is successful predictions

    You should expect he might have a change of mind because his's model of the world can't explain increasing numbers of grenade attacks in Sweden. He deals with this by ignoring it.

    He isn't capable of doing so. He 'thing' is the principle of charity and niceness. If it turns out those are worthless (because it turns out most people don't actually think rationally) then he is up a creek without a paddle.

    You should expect he might have a change of mind because his’s model of the world can’t explain increasing numbers of grenade attacks in Sweden. He deals with this by ignoring it.

    Western atheism is an ideology onto itself. It is not an obvious POV. If you surveyed the world, over human history, you’d find it to be an abnormality. Western atheism being an ideology of it’s own, you’d expect this behavior. He’s attached to his model, not the facts or rationality. Ironically, an irrational attachment to the high quality of their own personal rationality is usually what marks a militant atheist.

    I’ve been reading up on Fr. Malachi Martin, an interesting blast from the near past recently. In the last chapter of his book, The Jesuits, he explains we’re in a time of not really agnosticism or atheism but abolition. We’re going to pretend this religion thing does not exist at all. That it never really existed.

    So if you’re going to ignore Christianity, you also need to ignore atheism. What’s the point of stating , repeatedly, that there is no God? Of what need does anyone have of such a thing when we all know (supposedly) that religion is stupid? The need to answer to a question nobody (apparently) is asking is unsettling. After all, I don’t need to state repeatedly that the earth is not flat because it’s well, silly on the face it. It’s the same idea.

    That, besides the astute observation on that thread that Islam has become the new darling of the left, is what’s causing the rejection. An age without religion does not need preachers of any persuasion, including atheist.

    Optimist. I go with the much more depressing view. He is attached to rationality, but rationality is useless. Rationality is about noticing and correcting for biases in the human reasoning process; the reason those biases exist is because human thinking is optimized for an environment filled with lies, deceit and half truths.

    This should be obvious unless you are an idiot or autistic (or both). People still go for rationality for status signaling reasons- it is the mark of clever sillies which a way of showing you are smarter then everyone else.

    The big error behind rationality is that while intelligence is generalizable (high IQ people pick up new skills faster then low IQ people, all else being equal), knowledge is not. Being rational will not allow you to understand the world more effectively then people who put in the effort and focus on empirical work. This is hard and means that you cannot learn everything but there is no magic shortcuts.

    Yes, Trump was/is always going to lose 90% of the black vote to a Democrat--no matter what Trump says or does. He could say all the "right" things, and he still wouldn't budge that Dem loyalty.
    I wonder if Trunp's NFL spat, etc. is part of a somewhat deliberate strategy to (as Mr. Sailer has talked about elsewhere) try to turn the Democratic party into "The Black Party" (or more explicitly, the Angry Black Party) in the minds of not only whites, but lots of assimilated Latinos and Asians. Let the latter groups mull over the prospect: Is *this* what you want to align yourselves with? During the Obama years, everyone who could was clamoring to be as non-white as possible. Public figures with three white grandparents and creamed-coffee skin tone branded themselves as "black"--and why not? It was cool, and "they" were ascendant. But now that resentment is growing among Asians that affirmative action is working against them in elite college admissions, for example, this rush to ally with the angry blacks might not seem so enticing. I've often felt that the invocations of WW2 internment camps was a lot of "me-too-ism" from Asians trying to get on the grievance train while it was cool to do so. I don't think they have nearly the deep resentments against traditional America that blacks do.

    Unfortunately, this theory seems to seriously mis-read the Trumpian mindset. I can’t find any evidence he thinks along these lines. In fact, Trump appears to be completely dedicated to color blindness, although thank God he hold his standards high and has no use for affirmative action. If he surrounds himself by white Christian men and they’re the most qualified to get things done, so be it.

    That said, this would be an actual side effect of the spat and very observant. The Democratic Party is unstable collation of many groups. In real life, white limousine liberals really have nothing in common with a black guy in the ghetto other than a mutual interest in who is the receiver of other people’s stuff. In ye olde days, if blacks made noise, well it was okay to placate – the white working class wasn’t going anywhere and things hadn’t quite moved to an extreme.

    In 2017, the Democrats are forced to run back and forth between increasingly vocal and extremist groups including the limousine liberals that actually fund the Democratic party. While I doubt Asians (or Hispanics actually) are moved by the abortion issue, I highly doubt they’re thrilled with watching blacks look like entitled thugs.

    The proles often lag behind the elites in the changing and jettisoning of religion. Christianity grew up in the cities of the Roman Empire and the indigenous cults held sway in the countryside for rather longer, hence the term "pagan" which refers to a country dweller (and by extension a backwards bumpkin). Christianity and Zoroastrianism remained the majority religions of respectively Egypt and Persia until several centuries after the Islamic conquests and the rulers were generally the first to convert, in Persia at least. As Western elites cast off traditional Christianity in the 19th and early 20th century the vast majorities of Western populations remained believing and practicing.

    Not surprisingly the anti-Christian Zeitgeist props up the few atheistic blacks it can pass for scholars. In so doing they create a new elite black religion which nonetheless has not diffused yet into the general black population.

Upside is no rules and having the ultimate coolness of believing only in stuff you can touch. (There is nothing easier to mock than prayer.) The downside is the necessity of that choice requires walking alone in life and the belief that death must conquer all.

    Goodell went after Brady hard for Deflategate as a Bonfire of the Vanities-type move to overpunish the great white defendant when the NFL was beset by stories of really bad off-the-field behavior by black players. Goodell thought by going hard after Brady he could short-circuit talk that blacks were being "racistly" overpunished by the league.

    Except many people recognized that Deflategate was a mild football sin at best, and Brady's overpunishment really bothered most---why were wife beaters and murderers and child beaters being punished less or equal to a guy who mildly let air out of footballs---something that, according to all quarterbacks and head coaches asked about, would not have given Brady any significant advantage?

    Goodell dragged the league through federal court to get Brady. He almost got part of the CBA annulled as a result. Total SJW move there. Now he's doubling down on the anti-America, pro-black-crime protests. Ratings are falling, revenue is drying up, and the President himself is criticizing him. But he doubles down, as SJWs always do.

    Gooddell's an SJW and he and his inner circle are a liability to the NFL as no commissioner has been since, perhaps, the pre-merger days when the NFL refused to acknowledge the AFL.

    A group of good owners would have fired Gooddell after the Deflategate white witch hunt. That they didn't showed the owners are weak idiots. Once the NFL showed that Gooddell could let his social justice views rule the league, the anthem protesters were emboldened. Gooddell will never be satisfied, and will work to destroy the league.
