Are we hag-ridden? Yes, yes we are.
I identified so much with what you said about having ignorant friends. If you try to talk to them about what is really undermining society, they say OMG! You don’t really believe that do you! And then get bored as you try to explain yourself. It is a lonely place to be. I want to talk to my sister because she should know better, our parents didn’t raise us as stupid fools but she takes antidepressants and is numb and unaffected by anything. I feel like we are all in a plane that we know is about to crash but everyone else is drinking and eating and staring at the little tvs on their seats while we look out the windows in horror.
It doesn't help to vote. Emma Goldman was right. If voting were going to change anything they wouldn't let us do it, she said. We are going to have to build a culture that is resilient and that values freedom and decency. We won't be doing that in the big cities.
A very smart man once said that power flows from the provinces into the cities. If you look, you see that water and food do, too. Communication lines are still a major aspect of our networks and they cross through the rural areas.
We still have Christendom out here in "fly over" country. Come visit. We have pie. And we'll keep a light on for you.
God bless you. It matters very much that you care. God willing, we shall overcome. Amen.
I think a lot of men would like to have written this, only they can't, if they want to continue living their lives. I have always disliked feminists for their whining, and now I hate them for their destruction of so much of our culture, and their bullying of normal women, many of whom succumbed to their evil siren song.
I am a Brit who has not owned a tell-lie-vision in decades. I have no idea who you are talking about but I admired the wordcraft you employed to describe them. The borg are kept at a distance from me by being a hermit and ignoring all attempts to probe, test or inject me.
Thanks for the insight into the madness I am avoiding!
This is pure gold, Elizabeth.
Hatred fully appropriate, justified, and owned.
I'm an old school feminist, I was behind them in age, what they fought for, I gratefully accepted. I want to be accepted for my skills and talents, not what bathroom I prefer to use. I have worked construction, and did it well and enjoyed it. My brother also worked construction, did it badly and hated it. Our skills have nothing to do with our sex, and everything to do with who we are. To me what the feminists were going for was to make it so I can work construction, if I am inclined, and good at it, and he doesn't have to, since he's not inclined. And that's IT. I don't believe in toxic masculinity, or whining to get what you want, just in being judged by my skills and not my bathroom preference.
I'm VERY GLAD I haven't owned a TV set for 35 years, if that's what is on it.
Excellent article, thank you!!
There's a vector eating away at Women. Another vector is nibbling at masculinity. Another at Whites, and another at Colored. I know that I'm surrounded by NPC, aka "sheep", here in the suburbs of the Belly of the Beast, and probably would be by now if I'd stayed in Kaslo, BC or Bloomington, IL. I have dinner every Monday with a "group of guys" and the talk is always about which series to watch or sports of some sort - indoctrination/bread and circuses. And it seems that even with the "aware" bunch they jump to be on the "right" side of every emergency - climate, J6, Ukraine, Gaza, as if the "side" is the point rather than simple distraction - "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain who is destroying your world and that of your children, respond to the show that we've prepared for you - it's the Latest Thing!" Who's right about Gaza? Is that a meaningful question? Or is it just that wildfires and Ukraine had lost the ADD audience and some new horror was needed. What can I do? I'll keep doing what I'm doing - watching my 6 and praying my (old Anglican BCP) offices. It seems really out of our hands now - pray, meditate, do the next right thing...
American culture has often had an out of touch quality.
The Civil War was the deadliest conflict in our history. It turbocharged an industrial revolution that caused huge social disruption.
Yet US culture was overly refined and rarely reflected that turbulence. We're in a similar time now.
The culture, especially literature and film-TV, are feminized. There's an overemphasis on subjective states and not enough on examining the world in which we all live.
Books and shows are filled with saccharine, feel-good sentiments that ignore the savage realities of life.
We need more writers like Dreiser and Sinclair Lewis.
I am thankful that I live in the midwest of the US in a smal tourist town close to a state park where the Missouri river passes by and maybe some women around here think they are the "cat's meow but I don't know them. It's too bad you can't relocate and get away from the creepy hollow people that haunt you. Sounds like a time to relocate, if possible.
😂 😂 😂
Can’t stop laughing and can’t LOVE this enough!
“They are more ignorant than a bog dweller in Ireland in the 14th century…” 👏 👏 👏
Good to remember that Jennifer Aniston told a journalist she won’t have anything to do with people who refused the covid vaccine. Tells you everything you need to know.
The television. What an amazing invention 🤢
I have lost all respect for my species at this point. I would give anything to be a mother. Watching children being rejected and abandoned daily by their parents in favour of the almighty dollar is truly maddening. I live on the Coast though, which seems to be the preferred location for the programmed and programmable.
I wonder why these “concerned” women never consider our Creator’s feelings? Where’s the compassion there? How do you think our source feels watching his creations murder, rape and sacrifice each other for profit and stuff? I am really trying to understand, unfortunately I’m not dead inside.
I think the worst part is that instead of shaming and exiling those who are clearly exhibiting psychopathy (as Nature would and does), they pat each other on the back and celebrate themselves and we all watch it (enable it). Ugh. Just gross.
My fingers are crossed that moving away from the coast/cities/urban areas will bring me closer to reality/sanity/humans with integrity and respect for life 🤞🏻🙏🏻🤞🏻🙏🏻
Thank you for sharing and reminding me that there still are women out there who I can relate to and support 💪🏻
This post almost made me think I was reading about ribald characters in a naughty novel but alas these women are real, as in real utterly braindead, propagandized morons who unfortunately hold large sway over our imbecilic uninformed society. I usually just watch the idiot box for sports and old movies, but when I occasionally switch to scan shows teeming with these wretched ignorant media whores, I realize just how much trouble our decadent delusional society is in.
Yeah, it’s societal. It didn’t hit me fully, until I went up north to say bye to my mom, who was fighting her last fight. I could only stay for a week, as I have to care for my bride who is ill. But I just thought it’s crazier in Florida, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I was wrong. Its gotten crazy everywhere, and that’s very apparent if you do enough traveling, which we used to do a lot. Since my bride’s illness, we haven’t done any. Upstate ny is more fucked up than Florida! And the linguine spined male is everywhere! Sickening.
Once again the radical 4th wave (or are we at 5 now? I can't keep up)feminists prove that men (real men) do most things better. All they had to do was take over, in their great wisdom and prove it. Sad thing is, they still think they're right .. I feel bad for these stupid white women who continuously fall on the sword of whatever the flavor of the day is...being g ashamed of your white skin is pitiful..and actually a little of what you like to call racist. To think that white women, with the wave of a hand have solved the people of color plight is actually laughable. And that's the tip of the iceberg! When women get into positions of power, 99% of the time they fuck it up, and take the whole group down with them. Sorry! It's true. I never wanted to work after I had my kids, I wanted to raise them, but I made more money than my husband and we needed the money. In spite of our "progress" I'd go back to the days of women raising the kids and tending the house while daddy worked, anyway.
Standing applause! Best rant since the days of Hunter S. Thompson!
I unfortunately agree with James Lindsay's quote in your recent post, to whit: "Communism advances by controlling the framing of issues with low-information people. If a society has too many manipulable, low information people in it, a Communist revolution will eventually succeed there.". The evidence of a burgeoning population of a low information populace is graphically evidenced by the mobs of pro-Palestinian demonstrators siding with a HAMAS / IDF cease fire. All these thousands of low-information people in our country forget that the Gaza Palestinians over whelming voted for HAMAS leadership; and. worse they ignore the savagery of HAMAS including the flaying of a pregnant women's abdomen exposing her uterus, slapping her when she rose up her head to see the child, killing the unborn baby, and then killing the woman. This horrible act act perfectly frames Lindsay's idea that this crowd of low-information people are ignoring the facts and thus support evil. If thousands of Americans (and especially those from our most prestigious Ivy league universities) who support the Palestinians and by proxy the HAMAS savages chanting "From the river to the sea" this dramatically shows we as a nation are indeed in great threat of being taken over by a Communist revolution.
