    Quebec: The Crisis Of The WestQuebec, like the entire West, is facing an existential demographic and religious crisis — Quebec’s death spiral is explicitly linked with the calls for increased immigration. Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who put an end to the military campaign against the Islamic State, just called on Muslim migrants to come to his country — Resistance to Quebec’s dramatic collapse of Christianity does not necessarily require a new embrace of an old Catholicism, but it certainly does need a sane rediscovery of what a Western democracy should be. That includes an appreciation of Western identity and Judeo-Christian values

    Obama Admits Being in Martial Law Torn Pakistan During ‘College’In a news report from 2008, Obama said he visited the country when he started school at Columbia in 1981. Yet, in his two autobiographies, he never mentioned this trip to Pakistan…In his (auto)biographies, which more than likely were ghost written by Weather Underground terrorist (((William Ayers))), Obama claims that when he arrived in New York City to attend Columbia University from Occidental College, he was so poor that he didn’t have enough money to even get a room. Yet, here he is traveling from the U.S. to Pakistan and spending “three weeks there.”

    The call for more immigration is in service to economic growth, but ec. growth largely comes from better machines, and maybe we don't need the ec. growth one allegedly gets from having more people around. Maybe we should let the potential immigrants stay home and bless their lands with all this economic growth that is apparently being left on the table.

    Enough with the "judeo-christian" values.
    Orthodox judaism is not "fundamentalist christianity - Jesus".
    "judaism + Jesus" does not describe low church protestant christianity, Scoffield notwithstanding, and it describes traditional christianity (catholicism, orthodoxy, high protestantism) even less. Maybe calvinism fits ?

    The Quebecois were one of the few white tribes who were still allowed, more or less, to view themselves in a positive light. They're being loudly called to get with the antiwhite program. The QC independance project is going nowhere. Young Quebecois leftists used to be channelled into the QC independance project. More or more they're being channelled into intersectional transgender mxslim worship. It's open season on Quebec City, its inhabitants and its culture.
    As usual, members of the mainstream media are leading the charge. There has been for many years a conflict between Montral based media (leftist, globalist) and Quebec City based media (there are a lot of populist radios there). The Montreal based media is trying to take out the QC City media for good.

    I think we can stop talking about Obama now, but visiting Pakistan and staying with friends is not inconsistent with being a poor student. He apparently went to Pakistan on his way back from a trip visiting his mother in Indonesia. It's well known that Obama hung around with Pakistanis during his time at Columbia but what relevance does this have almost 40 years later, especially now that Obama is not the President any more?

    NewNationalist.net is the kind of place that the SPLC would put on their bad list and in this case they would be right. They seem to confuse nationalism with anti-Semitism, just like that German guy with the funny mustache.

    Women in top jobs concentrate wealth at the top.

    If two men get top jobs, each can marry a woman without a job, and their earnings can support two families.

    But if women get top jobs, it is likely that a man with top job and woman with top job will marry, and the two incomes will go to just one family.

    Or the woman with top job will not marry and blow her earnings on her own vanity. That money could have gone to support a family.

    The demographic collapse and rising inequality in the West & developed world are proof that Feminomics has been a disaster, so much so that we are told the West must import immigrants from nations without feminomics.

    In the name of ‘equality’, feminomics sap & undermine survivality and vitality of the organism.

    There's a fair amount of discussion that "assortative mating" may be a driving factor in exacerbating wealth inequality. Whereas forty years ago the Lawyer married a pretty young secretary and a Doctor a pretty young nurse (we can probably assume that those women pursued a certain strategy in arriving at those jobs) now Lawyers marry Lawyers and Doctors marry Doctors. Their would-be lower career status spouses wind up partnering with men of lower incomes. As you note, the female Doctors and Lawyers are less likely to have many children and delay childbirth generally during their education and early careers.

    It's probably also a contributory cause to our general national cultural crack-up, since this sort of segregation means that professionals interact with blue collar types socially much less than they used to do.
    , @phil
    Good comment. In discussions of feminism, it's all about increasing the number of women in formerly male bastions; it is taken for granted that an increase in the number of women represents "progress" (as in "progressive"). Rarely mentioned is the consistent finding across western, industrialized countries that the average happiness of women has declined significantly since 1970--both absolutely and relative to men. See Betsey Stevenson's research. (She is obviously gunshy about pushing her findings.)

    Would replacing Bill Belichick with a female to coach the Patriots represent progress?

    Its true, though. Research has shown that women working full-time jobs increases the chance of divorce, even after all other mitigating factors have been removed. And the addition of the female labor force into previously male dominated areas has served, at the very least, to increase the supply of labor and decrease the cost for it. This has simultaneously resulted in increasing living expenses, suggesting that two-income households are directly responsible.

    Life is a zero sum game, unfortunately or otherwise. I'm sure you love a lot of things, and I might love hardcore drugs too. But that doesn't mean that hardcore drugs should be freely available to everywhere, everyone, or that the world will be a better place for it.

    Decisions that make sense individually can have adverse consequences on a macro level. Intelligent men always loved intelligent women - back in the days when lawyers married their secretaries, even intelligent women often did not attend college but rather attended secretarial school and became legal secretaries, which was considered a skilled position (and as the OP noted, one that put you in contact with desirable men). The ability to take shorthand alone was a considerable skill. Or nursing school, etc. Then when these intelligent women married, the expectation was that they would stop working and devote their considerable intelligence and energy into raising top quality children, charitable work in the community, etc. It was understood that while both men and women were capable of working outside the home, only woman were capable of giving birth to children and best suited by nature for caring for them.

    I would say that whole system worked a lot better than the current system where intelligent women are directed to pursue the same careers as men and have few or no children so that we are now in a highly dysgenic cycle where the people who should be having kids aren't and those who shouldn't are. The feminists who advocated for this system were often completely childless themselves, of questionable mental stability and to some of them, the very idea of childbirth utterly disgusted them. Look up Shulamith Firestone.

    People THINK that they are making individual decisions but in fact we are highly influenced by the norms of society and the people who set these norms I wouldn't trust to mail a letter for me let alone order a society.

    I've read that at the time O visited Pakistan, that country was off-limits to U.S. passport holders, by edict of the State Dept. Therefore, if O traveled there, he would have had to do so on a passport from another country (Indonesia?) or have been given a double-secret waiver through one of the intelligence agencies. Either one of these circumstances would be at odds with his Ayers-crafted life story.

    Women and their clear growing power, visible in their higher college enrollment and graduation rates, ability to succeed in the new economy’s “not-appropriate-for-real-men’s” jobs and ever-growing visibility in all previously male bastions is very threatening now that you can’t just graduate from h.s. and hold the same job for the next 40 years.

    And the Black Lives Matter movement has enraged white men. I am white and I can feel this deep, deep unhappiness and distress among white people whenever yet another police shooting occurs, there are protests, and we are forced to confront all that inevitably occurs in these cases and the whole sorry history.

    I am sorry for children, having to come of age in the Trump era. The very fact that people could vote for the Rapist in Chief means they are able to “overlook” his attitudes about women, overlook his actions against women, and they can only overlook that means they are privileged enough not to have to worry.

    Enough with the “judeo-christian” values.
    Orthodox judaism is not “fundamentalist christianity – Jesus”.
    “judaism + Jesus” does not describe low church protestant christianity, Scoffield notwithstanding, and it describes traditional christianity (catholicism, orthodoxy, high protestantism) even less. Maybe calvinism fits ?

    The Quebecois were one of the few white tribes who were still allowed, more or less, to view themselves in a positive light. They’re being loudly called to get with the antiwhite program. The QC independance project is going nowhere. Young Quebecois leftists used to be channelled into the QC independance project. More or more they’re being channelled into intersectional transgender mxslim worship. It’s open season on Quebec City, its inhabitants and its culture.
    As usual, members of the mainstream media are leading the charge. There has been for many years a conflict between Montral based media (leftist, globalist) and Quebec City based media (there are a lot of populist radios there). The Montreal based media is trying to take out the QC City media for good.

    Women in top jobs concentrate wealth at the top.

    If two men get top jobs, each can marry a woman without a job, and their earnings can support two families.

    But if women get top jobs, it is likely that a man with top job and woman with top job will marry, and the two incomes will go to just one family.

    Or the woman with top job will not marry and blow her earnings on her own vanity. That money could have gone to support a family.

    The demographic collapse and rising inequality in the West & developed world are proof that Feminomics has been a disaster, so much so that we are told the West must import immigrants from nations without feminomics.

    In the name of 'equality', feminomics sap & undermine survivality and vitality of the organism.

    There’s a fair amount of discussion that “assortative mating” may be a driving factor in exacerbating wealth inequality. Whereas forty years ago the Lawyer married a pretty young secretary and a Doctor a pretty young nurse (we can probably assume that those women pursued a certain strategy in arriving at those jobs) now Lawyers marry Lawyers and Doctors marry Doctors. Their would-be lower career status spouses wind up partnering with men of lower incomes. As you note, the female Doctors and Lawyers are less likely to have many children and delay childbirth generally during their education and early careers.

    Its true, though. Research has shown that women working full-time jobs increases the chance of divorce, even after all other mitigating factors have been removed. And the addition of the female labor force into previously male dominated areas has served, at the very least, to increase the supply of labor and decrease the cost for it. This has simultaneously resulted in increasing living expenses, suggesting that two-income households are directly responsible.

    Life is a zero sum game, unfortunately or otherwise. I'm sure you love a lot of things, and I might love hardcore drugs too. But that doesn't mean that hardcore drugs should be freely available to everywhere, everyone, or that the world will be a better place for it.

    Modern man has come to believe that life serves ideas and family serves jobs.

    They got it backwards.

    Ideas exist to serve life. After all, no matter what ideas we have, life is life. We seek the best ideas for life, but life has validity apart from ideas. If the Current Ideas are the only thing that justifies life, then most of human history and most of humanity around the had no right to have ever existed since they didn't share our ideas. If 'liberal democracy' is what life is all about, then all those people in communist nations, Muslim nations, and traditional nations have no right to live since they don't have the right ideas. Now, one could argue that 'liberal democracy' best serves life, but life has value beyond ideas. So, even in an illiberal society, life has value as life. So, it wasn't wrong for people to have families and children in communist, nazi, muslim, maoist, and etc nations. The ideas may have been bad, but life is life. A person's value as life is the same regardless of what he believes. His life is no less valuable if he is religious than if he is atheist, if he is a communist than a capitalist.

    Also, we can easily get rid of bad ideas and take good ideas. Ideas are easily mutable. We can be communist this week, but next week take on market ideology. So, even though we need ideas, ideas are secondary to life. If 100 people have bad ideas but have kids and if 100 people have good ideas but don't have kids, the people with bad ideas will prevail since they created life. In contrast, no matter how good the ideas held by the other community, it is finished because it believes ideas alone were enough. But then, is a society really good if it favors ideas over life? If 'good' ideas lead to decline and demise of life, they were actually bad ideas from the perspective of life and evolution, the only criteria that matters in the long run. The fact of being trumps the follies of believing.



    And then, there is life and jobs. In the West, we define people primarily as jobs(hirelings with economic utility) than as organisms(living beings with organismic purpose and destiny). We don't see jobs as serving people in what is most central to life: family. Now, work is crucial, as in an ant colony, but all that work is supposed to serve life of the ant colony.
    Jobs exist to serve people, but we think people exist to serve jobs because jobs serve hedonism, what modern society is addicted to as 'freedom'. 'Get paid and get laid'. Bondage to jobs ensures fun, fun, and fun in afterhours. But it's the kind of consumerist hedonist fun that has no long-term meaning. It's like you might have a good time at a casino, but once the thrill is gone, it's gone. It was momentary. Fireworks are not the moon, let alone the sun.

    The conceit of freedom had misled us. Sure, we want to be free in the sense that we don't want Big Brother telling us what to do or sending us to the Gulag for saying the 'wrong' thing. And we want choice of which spaghetti sauce to buy.
    But freedom isn't the end-all of life. Freedom is a means to a purpose. After all, animal may enjoy running around freely and having fun.. but all said and done, it has to gain security, sustenance, and continuance via reproduction if its DNA is to survive.

    So, in the end, freedom must choose something that bonds the person or organism to a core purpose. We want freedom of choice, but we must make the right choice, and that narrows choice down to what is essential. If every individual chooses not to have kids and just blow all the money on good times, it can be defended along libertarian grounds. But it will be the end of the species.
    So, freedom's ultimate value is not in and of itself but the hope that free people will use their freedom wisely and responsibly.

    Since the main purpose of life is life itself, humanity needs to make choices that best serve the survivality and vitality of life. Jobs exist because people need to learn and earn to make family life possible and because humans just serve other humans in a world of division of labor. Everyone lives through other people. Doctors live through their parents, teachers live through their students, and etc.

    But all said and done, we are life forms, and life forms must continue after we die. And that means we need family. Freedom without purpose is a childish thing, and the Bible says we need to put away childish things. Freedom with purpose means we must freely give up our freedom to fix on that purpose. That's the paradox of freedom. Freedom gains true value ONLY WHEN we freely give it up in our commitment to a purpose. So, if one wants to study medicine, one has to give up one's dreams of becoming astronaut, general, actor, lawyer, athlete, and etc. One must become bonded to medicine. If one chooses to have a spouse and kids with that spouse, he or she must bond himself/herself to that family.
    We can't do everything or have everything(and most things are dumb anyway). So, if a woman decides to have a family, she has to give up something. The question is WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT and WHAT IS THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE OF LIFE? Is the ultimate purpose of life to have fun or have a job and get paid to blow it in a casino? Or is the ultimate purpose of life to continue as life by procreation? Life's main duty is to life. After all, each person was created as life through life processes --- parents --- and didn't spring forth from a book or movie.

    Now, this doesn't mean there shouldn't be fun and other such stuff, BUT there has to be an hierarchy of what is truly important in life. Choosing to have a family and choosing to go to Las Vegas & have fun are not of same value. But according to consumer-capitalism, the highest value is just the individual choice as consumer.
    This is sold as freedom, but is it really? To afford this freedom, one has to be stuck-at-work, which is a kind of bondage. It is this bondage that gives us money to be 'free', but free for what? Consumerism says the ultimate meaning of freedom to pursue fun and emulate trashy vain and narcissistic celebrities.

    Something is out of whack in our world.

    Isms serve the Organism. We have forgotten that.

    We think Organism serves Isms. Take the -ism of Diversity. This nutty ideology is destroying the European Organism(aka white folks) via massive invasion, but PC-addled European organisms have been infected with the -ism virus that says they must serve the ideal of Diversity EVEN IF it endangers the European Organism.

    You two hand-wringers are ridiculous. God, I love intelligent competent women. That they are so few in number is not our fault.

    Decisions that make sense individually can have adverse consequences on a macro level. Intelligent men always loved intelligent women – back in the days when lawyers married their secretaries, even intelligent women often did not attend college but rather attended secretarial school and became legal secretaries, which was considered a skilled position (and as the OP noted, one that put you in contact with desirable men). The ability to take shorthand alone was a considerable skill. Or nursing school, etc. Then when these intelligent women married, the expectation was that they would stop working and devote their considerable intelligence and energy into raising top quality children, charitable work in the community, etc. It was understood that while both men and women were capable of working outside the home, only woman were capable of giving birth to children and best suited by nature for caring for them.

    I would say that whole system worked a lot better than the current system where intelligent women are directed to pursue the same careers as men and have few or no children so that we are now in a highly dysgenic cycle where the people who should be having kids aren’t and those who shouldn’t are. The feminists who advocated for this system were often completely childless themselves, of questionable mental stability and to some of them, the very idea of childbirth utterly disgusted them. Look up Shulamith Firestone.

    People THINK that they are making individual decisions but in fact we are highly influenced by the norms of society and the people who set these norms I wouldn’t trust to mail a letter for me let alone order a society.

    I have been thinking that Trump is our next presidentbecause of two things. White men's fear of women and their fear of African Americans.

    Women and their clear growing power, visible in their higher college enrollment and graduation rates, ability to succeed in the new economy's "not-appropriate-for-real-men's" jobs and ever-growing visibility in all previously male bastions is very threatening now that you can't just graduate from h.s. and hold the same job for the next 40 years.

    And the Black Lives Matter movement has enraged white men. I am white and I can feel this deep, deep unhappiness and distress among white people whenever yet another police shooting occurs, there are protests, and we are forced to confront all that inevitably occurs in these cases and the whole sorry history.

    I am sorry for children, having to come of age in the Trump era. The very fact that people could vote for the Rapist in Chief means they are able to "overlook" his attitudes about women, overlook his actions against women, and they can only overlook that means they are privileged enough not to have to worry.

    WHITE MEN, don't. have. to. worry. about. their. safety, their skin color and sex give them that power.

    Abstract
    What allows groups to behave intelligently? One suggestion is that groups exhibit a collective intelligence accounted for by number of women in the group, turn-taking and emotional empathizing, with group-IQ being only weakly-linked to individual IQ (Woolley, Chabris, Pentland, Hashmi, & Malone, 2010). Here we report tests of this model across three studies with 312 people. Contrary to prediction, individual IQ accounted for around 80% of group-IQ differences. Hypotheses that group-IQ increases with number of women in the group and with turn-taking were not supported. Reading the mind in the eyes (RME) performance was associated with individual IQ, and, in one study, with group-IQ factor scores. However, a well-fitting structural model combining data from studies 2 and 3 indicated that RME exerted no influence on the group-IQ latent factor (instead having a modest impact on a single group test). The experiments instead showed that higher individual IQ enhances group performance such that individual IQ determined 100% of latent group-IQ. Implications for future work on group-based achievement are examined.

    And then, there is life and jobs. In the West, we define people primarily as jobs(hirelings with economic utility) than as organisms(living beings with organismic purpose and destiny). We don’t see jobs as serving people in what is most central to life: family. Now, work is crucial, as in an ant colony, but all that work is supposed to serve life of the ant colony.
    Jobs exist to serve people, but we think people exist to serve jobs because jobs serve hedonism, what modern society is addicted to as ‘freedom’. ‘Get paid and get laid’. Bondage to jobs ensures fun, fun, and fun in afterhours. But it’s the kind of consumerist hedonist fun that has no long-term meaning. It’s like you might have a good time at a casino, but once the thrill is gone, it’s gone. It was momentary. Fireworks are not the moon, let alone the sun.

    The conceit of freedom had misled us. Sure, we want to be free in the sense that we don’t want Big Brother telling us what to do or sending us to the Gulag for saying the ‘wrong’ thing. And we want choice of which spaghetti sauce to buy.
    But freedom isn’t the end-all of life. Freedom is a means to a purpose. After all, animal may enjoy running around freely and having fun.. but all said and done, it has to gain security, sustenance, and continuance via reproduction if its DNA is to survive.

    So, in the end, freedom must choose something that bonds the person or organism to a core purpose. We want freedom of choice, but we must make the right choice, and that narrows choice down to what is essential. If every individual chooses not to have kids and just blow all the money on good times, it can be defended along libertarian grounds. But it will be the end of the species.
    So, freedom’s ultimate value is not in and of itself but the hope that free people will use their freedom wisely and responsibly.

    Since the main purpose of life is life itself, humanity needs to make choices that best serve the survivality and vitality of life. Jobs exist because people need to learn and earn to make family life possible and because humans just serve other humans in a world of division of labor. Everyone lives through other people. Doctors live through their parents, teachers live through their students, and etc.

    But all said and done, we are life forms, and life forms must continue after we die. And that means we need family. Freedom without purpose is a childish thing, and the Bible says we need to put away childish things. Freedom with purpose means we must freely give up our freedom to fix on that purpose. That’s the paradox of freedom. Freedom gains true value ONLY WHEN we freely give it up in our commitment to a purpose. So, if one wants to study medicine, one has to give up one’s dreams of becoming astronaut, general, actor, lawyer, athlete, and etc. One must become bonded to medicine. If one chooses to have a spouse and kids with that spouse, he or she must bond himself/herself to that family.
    We can’t do everything or have everything(and most things are dumb anyway). So, if a woman decides to have a family, she has to give up something. The question is WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT and WHAT IS THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE OF LIFE? Is the ultimate purpose of life to have fun or have a job and get paid to blow it in a casino? Or is the ultimate purpose of life to continue as life by procreation? Life’s main duty is to life. After all, each person was created as life through life processes — parents — and didn’t spring forth from a book or movie.

    Now, this doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be fun and other such stuff, BUT there has to be an hierarchy of what is truly important in life. Choosing to have a family and choosing to go to Las Vegas & have fun are not of same value. But according to consumer-capitalism, the highest value is just the individual choice as consumer.
    This is sold as freedom, but is it really? To afford this freedom, one has to be stuck-at-work, which is a kind of bondage. It is this bondage that gives us money to be ‘free’, but free for what? Consumerism says the ultimate meaning of freedom to pursue fun and emulate trashy vain and narcissistic celebrities.

    Something is out of whack in our world.

    Isms serve the Organism. We have forgotten that.

    I have been thinking that Trump is our next presidentbecause of two things. White men's fear of women and their fear of African Americans.

    Women and their clear growing power, visible in their higher college enrollment and graduation rates, ability to succeed in the new economy's "not-appropriate-for-real-men's" jobs and ever-growing visibility in all previously male bastions is very threatening now that you can't just graduate from h.s. and hold the same job for the next 40 years.

    And the Black Lives Matter movement has enraged white men. I am white and I can feel this deep, deep unhappiness and distress among white people whenever yet another police shooting occurs, there are protests, and we are forced to confront all that inevitably occurs in these cases and the whole sorry history.

    I am sorry for children, having to come of age in the Trump era. The very fact that people could vote for the Rapist in Chief means they are able to "overlook" his attitudes about women, overlook his actions against women, and they can only overlook that means they are privileged enough not to have to worry.

    Its true, though. Research has shown that women working full-time jobs increases the chance of divorce, even after all other mitigating factors have been removed. And the addition of the female labor force into previously male dominated areas has served, at the very least, to increase the supply of labor and decrease the cost for it. This has simultaneously resulted in increasing living expenses, suggesting that two-income households are directly responsible.

    Life is a zero sum game, unfortunately or otherwise. I'm sure you love a lot of things, and I might love hardcore drugs too. But that doesn't mean that hardcore drugs should be freely available to everywhere, everyone, or that the world will be a better place for it.

    Besides, the number of women who think they are qualified far exceeds the actual number who are.

    To quote Phil Rushton (IIRC), if you are a white person of N. European ancestry, you are genetically 109 times closer to a random, say, Dane than to your own mixed-race halfrican offspring. Our common good as a people is not Socialist or political--that idea is Socialist.

    Our common good has biological/genomic roots.

    If you are killing members of your own genome through neglect or outright hostility, or destroying any environment in which they thrive, you are part of the white genocide problem.

    You don't get a pass for asserting they are losers and you're a winner.

    "The world you inhabit" appears to be the centuries where European and American whites could be goaded to slaughter each other by the tens of millions, and emerge feeling heroic.

    The idea of a common good is Socialist, which I'm not. I'm a private property, personal responsibility guy. I have been fortunate to work in a field for 40 years where only ability matters, where a safety net and benefits do not exist. Winners stay. losers leave. Even in the 21st century USSA this is still possible. My clients and my family are my only concerns. I know about right and wrong, not legal and illegal. I have no interest in living in the world you inhabit. You seem a genuinely nice person, I enjoy your POV and I wish you well in your chosen life, but a better way is always available.

    The reality of negative externalities isn’t Socialist – if you to continually release cyanide gas from your property, it does indeed affect a common good, which is the air. And the reality of life is that we do have common effects on reality, which end up affecting all of us, including eventually your family and clients. At some point, attacking any notion of common good as Socialist is a lot like attacking any differences in races as Racist.

    Reality always has to trump ideology.

    I understand your perspective, but consider where we’re coming from, and I think its one that hews much closer to reality. From the perspective of your values, we’re just trying to make our lives better too. Fair, yes?

    The common good, while capable of being taken too far, like anything, is not a “socialist” idea. Even if it was, it’s stupid to simply scare-label a concept and assume that’s good enough to demonize it. The common good is a good idea because it creates societies that don’t come back and bite us on the ass. Socialism is a whole basket of ideas that goes way beyond caring about the “common good.” Everyone sane cares about the common good. Why not leave the Aspergers-as-politics and join the ranks of the sane? I recommend Nationalism, which prioritizes which common good it is most concerned with, for efficient use of resources.

    Quebec: The Crisis Of The West — Quebec, like the entire West, is facing an existential demographic and religious crisis — Quebec’s death spiral is explicitly linked with the calls for increased immigration. Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who put an end to the military campaign against the Islamic State, just called on Muslim migrants to come to his country — Resistance to Quebec’s dramatic collapse of Christianity does not necessarily require a new embrace of an old Catholicism, but it certainly does need a sane rediscovery of what a Western democracy should be. That includes an appreciation of Western identity and Judeo-Christian values

    ---
    Enough with the "judeo-christian" values.
    Orthodox judaism is not "fundamentalist christianity - Jesus".
    "judaism + Jesus" does not describe low church protestant christianity, Scoffield notwithstanding, and it describes traditional christianity (catholicism, orthodoxy, high protestantism) even less. Maybe calvinism fits ?

    The Quebecois were one of the few white tribes who were still allowed, more or less, to view themselves in a positive light. They're being loudly called to get with the antiwhite program. The QC independance project is going nowhere. Young Quebecois leftists used to be channelled into the QC independance project. More or more they're being channelled into intersectional transgender mxslim worship. It's open season on Quebec City, its inhabitants and its culture.
    As usual, members of the mainstream media are leading the charge. There has been for many years a conflict between Montral based media (leftist, globalist) and Quebec City based media (there are a lot of populist radios there). The Montreal based media is trying to take out the QC City media for good.

    Good comment. In discussions of feminism, it's all about increasing the number of women in formerly male bastions; it is taken for granted that an increase in the number of women represents "progress" (as in "progressive"). Rarely mentioned is the consistent finding across western, industrialized countries that the average happiness of women has declined significantly since 1970--both absolutely and relative to men. See Betsey Stevenson's research. (She is obviously gunshy about pushing her findings.)

    Would replacing Bill Belichick with a female to coach the Patriots represent progress?

    Its true, though. Research has shown that women working full-time jobs increases the chance of divorce, even after all other mitigating factors have been removed. And the addition of the female labor force into previously male dominated areas has served, at the very least, to increase the supply of labor and decrease the cost for it. This has simultaneously resulted in increasing living expenses, suggesting that two-income households are directly responsible.

    Life is a zero sum game, unfortunately or otherwise. I'm sure you love a lot of things, and I might love hardcore drugs too. But that doesn't mean that hardcore drugs should be freely available to everywhere, everyone, or that the world will be a better place for it.

    Besides, the number of women who think they are qualified far exceeds the actual number who are.
