Some may try to secure the existence of their virtue through the assertion of their ascendancy towards the good. Others may try to secure the same through a malcontent and insatiable persecution of those that disagree.

As power is indifference, so it is also the capacity to forgo responsibility, towards the same, with impunity.

Convince your enemy of the impunity of their evil hedonism and they will believe in their own power.

Those wise enough to call it out can be handled with the simple and artifical inflation of consequence by the chastisement of those others you convinced were so powerful. This is why compliments and insults are both to be met with skepticism - the wise know that compliments may do as much damage as insults - if not more. Indeed, because you will also take the truth to doubly be an insult, when a loved one tries to humble your arrogance, for your own sake. Not only were you fooled by another, but also by yourself.

You will find an infinite pool of capability for outrage within the superstitious and dumb. One only need point to superior men and accuse them of demonic crafts being responsible for the fruits of their labor, which the inferior lack.

Some have adopted the instincts of the superior from one cultural generation to a next, without knowing what purpose they serve. They save but know not what to spend it on. They collect and store but don't know for which purpose it will serve later. They are thrifty but do not know the value of what it is they're purchasing. Habitual and blind collection is anti-conservative and anti-environmental greed.

Also, when one is powerless and unassimilable, what appears moderate to yourself will appear immoderate and greedy to another. It is helpful, then, to equate the thrift of others to your own - or to pretend to be one of them, so they mistake your greed (to them) for a virtue of thriftiness (to them).

I read an interesting post about the Gordian knot by Satyr some weeks ago, but now I can't find it for the life of me. I think it was in one of the locked threads where only mods can post. Anybody know what I'm talking about?

Thank you, yes, that is it. I just realized that the search function isn't working properly. I thought the post had been deleted, or something, cause it showed me no results when I searched "Gordian".

What is it like to be the world's greatest painter and artist? You develop a craft and hone a talent, spending decades of life in practice, to create true beauty. Yet when a great painting is hauled out of privacy, and into the public, what is the public's reaction? Can average, normal, modern people appreciate art, talent, and genius? The answer is no. Average people would sooner spit on a great painting, or spray-paint and deface it. Art is lost upon the common, rabble. Or in modern terms, Moderns would present a jar full of piss and shit as "equal" to the masterpiece.

"Pearls before swine"

Thus it is also a perfect waste to present (private) philosophy in the public forum for public consumption. Just as master painters, and the greatest artworks, are far removed from the general public. Because the general public, full of commoners, simpletons, and animals, both could not and would not appreciate it (in a significant way, it would be shallow if at all). Given complete freedom, again, the bottom 50% of humanity would simply deface it, spray-paint it, and/or burn it.

Great art (including philosophy) is lost upon its inferiors. Thus great art represents higher degrees of Superiority, and invokes feelings of resentiment among those beneath it. Now I recall the scene in the 1980s movie 'Batman' when Joker defaces the paintings in the museum (as his contempt against the 'upper' classes whom he previously served when he was 'Jack'). Batman represents the defender of society (Art) while Joker is the enemy of it.

This point moves to the next, that societies, culture, civilization, all revolve around art as Artifice. Civilization itself, can only be measured and reach as high as its greatest artforms. I believe, Philosophy is the highest artform, to turn ideas, thoughts, knowledge into something Beautiful.

Yes, and to me this is a goal in and of itself which cannot be subordinated to other goals.

Except that I would phrase it differently: Philosophy is about acquiring a superior understanding of the world.


New video by Colttaine, Occam's Razor. It's all known, but a good video nonetheless. Main points:
- observe actions over words
- women find the idea of a man sacrificing themselves for her hot
- female mystique is nonsense accepted by men because it gives them an excuse to ignore nasty aspects of female nature
- pregnancy is nothing extraordinary

Yeah, no shit....

I gotta tell you, never own anything.
Whenever you own something, they will try to take it away from you.
Having nothing and having the moral high-ground and feeling good about it is much better.

But we don't have to go all radical and declare that life is all about suffering, so that euthanasia is the way to go. That would be too much. Couldn't have those warm fuzzy feelings of having the slavish high ground and that's what matters to the soul-hungry soul.

And here is a hint how you have your cake and eat it too.
You give away the wealth of your community instead of your own.

This is an ideal, a goal, out of countless many.

So what is the nature of ideals? The ancients were right: an ideal is a preferred, 'perfect' state, a utopia. If you take any individual's ideal, any particular ideal, then what you have is a re-imagined world to the accord and underlying (metaphysical) preference of that person. Thus any, and every ideal, is a reflection of that individual's soul and spirit.

Therefore ideals are the most defining condition of individuals, representing their biological foundation, and so the definition of any person or group of persons.

Crosspost:

They say that because people with mental disabilities can throw parades or declare pride publicly without being hurt, that it means everyone is free. It's a war against thinking. A war against love for others. Death can be a kindness, it's why anesthesia is considered humane. No one wants to have disabled children. People with those diseases purposely forgo reproduction out of kindness (I've met, talked with, and been in a relationship with two women who had this position).

However, instead of killing a suffering animal, they propose that everyone should pretend it's okay. That everyone should work to bring the lowest animal up to the same stature of humans. To them,  a whole village forgoing reproduction, to forgo saving money (declared as greed) for the sake of those children they will have, should instead go to support the disabled... and the whole village die.

This is also a war against art, because the radical and extreme "humanism" that hides a schizophrenic pole of perverse greed and selfishness. The greed that says no lie is too horrific nor too terrible to tell. That one should choose their own life at any cost, and so there's no cost not worth paying to ensure one has no fear. Therefor, there will never be any trust.

If you cannot trust another to be telling you a truth, then you will not appreciate the art they make. You cannot appreciate it because you have set about your life and closest relatives a line which says to have no trust, a paranoid line of either radical elimination of boundaries or boundaries only for yourself. You will find something in the art to fear. In fact, you will have a fear of beauty itself because it may distinguish itself from you - and as something you cannot understsnd, you fear it with an ogsessive narcissism and seek its destruction. What an artist appreciates in nature, threatens to be something which guides others to a path that may exclude you. There will always be something to fear - and one concerned with eliminating all of it, will in turn eliminate trust, appreciation and art.

In response to this, they declared the erasure of borders to be "beautiful", the erasure of beauty and art as a display of high virtue instead of grotesque destruction. They say that one wishing to preserve a culture is "hateful". That because one may only appreciate the art which makes them feel safe. One they control. And what is there to sell but the organs and limbs of what exists? They say strength is allowing one to cut off ones limbs so they may display an "overcoming". In the ring, they say that a boxer was cowardly for not fighting them with his hands tied. That every disadvantage and ugliness about them is an injustice, not a fact they must tolerate and cope with.

The balanced man is only needed in times of stress, where he is allowed to excel in his ability to adapt to several circumstances. Within sheltered environments, he is glossed over by most women, for more physically or financially wealthy men whom despite having more glaring weaknesses, are protected from having them exploited. This has resulted in the increase in stupidity and cowardice and left these women more and more unfulfilled who only continue to generationally raise their standards in an attempt of fulfillment.

Does one wear the mask, and focus in one area, still falling short compared to many men who unconsciously excel in that area in order to have a chance at most women.

Or...

Does one stay true, and remain balanced, maintaining the flexibility required to survive harsher environments in order to have a chance at the few women who have not been seduced by the modern environment.

The ideal of Reincarnation, Nirvana, Heaven, Hell, Purgatory, are all reflections of Nihilism, self-hatred, and the "death-wish" (Thanatos) drive. As with more addictive physical-pathological conditions, such as alcoholism, drug abuse, and gambling, these all represent the death-drive and 'insane' hope for a "better world" (for the particular individual). Symbolically and actually, all of these mark the "giving-up" by an individual and acceptance of death, knowingly or usually unknowingly. Usually the Nihilist is unaware that s/he has given up on life, already, and has stepped into a realm of suicidal impulses. While all life, actions, choices represent degrees of Risk-taking, Nihilism goes a step further, and directly or indirectly represents risking and putting one's own life up to stake. Reincarnation, particularly, is wanting to die, to transform, into some other object or being or person, in order to rid oneself of current life. Delusion and mental illness, taken to the next level:

If and when a rare individual *truly believes* that s/he only has one life then this type of rare person will fight *hardest* not only to stay alive and survive in the face of insurmountable odds, but also *live well*.

This is what is intended by: "the unexamined (the unworthy) life is not worth living".

One of the main reasons I've claimed before that 'male' and 'female' are different species is the very spec-ific behavior by which females stick to their own kind, reinforce and protect themselves, in a way which males simply do not do. Thus when a woman dies then it is a crime against all women. But if a man dies then he dies as an individual, and not necessarily part and with any grouping (or society). This is the reason that men who are 'heroic' or legendary, are only accepted by history by how they have *contributed* to a society but not through any 'inherent' worth or privilege, which females innately claim or imply.

Thus there is a distinct genetic and pathological difference between males and females. It's rather easy to spot and point-out once a mind is "un"-brainwashed or simply nurtured outside the institutions of humanity. But within humanity, it is indoctrinated from a young age and people miss it, that men and women are 'equal' meanwhile a man can and will be thrown under the bus, if it hints at possibly "contributing to the whole". This causes a distinct spite-ness and anti-social contempt in males that is unseen and unheard of in females. Because females, at heart and at bottom, obey and ally themselves with the ultimate social status quo (to which benefits females, and children, before anybody else).

What is a secret and why is it important?

Secrets are antithetical to the very development of language. That is, language was made for the expression of self to others. So, when making a secret out of language, one creates a contradiction. One example of this is 'secrets within a bible'. However, yet another, is just our own private ambitions which we are capable of assigning words to - but only we may understand in a way which another could only understand with an objective assessment of your capability and your situation.

There is also a consequence, that, an other can eternally criticize the use of language to explain language, itself.
Satyr wrote:
Judgment is the appreciation of the ideal, in relation to the real, or within the world.
It determines orientation and the path chosen.
We know of the chimp, whom always accuses others of claiming they have access to the 'ideal'. Because the chimp does not reference the world, but instead the process in her own head, the language and memetic fabrications - the result of a moral nihilism which disconnected any care for what is real or not - she immediately universalizes in a particular way, whatever is being said. That particular way is always within her own mental framework, because she is constantly obsessed with it and cares only about it. A moral nihilist, by necessity, is someone completely demoralized.

My particular point is that there is no such thing as a private thought - and no such thing as restriction or hierarchy - to this demoralized chimp. As such, there's no discrimination between friend or foe. It always, whenever encountering an enemy, demands that it reveal its motives so that it may try to cast cynical doubt upon the premises of its ideals. (So it can declare that, by utilizing language for private judgments, one has necessarily spoken of the world.) Privacy is an offense, and those like the chimp consider it a weakness because it means separation from the collective/crowd. That is, anyone who keeps private motives is suspect of being traitors to the increasingly collectivizing system which threatens all. Out of sheer animal instinct, chimp instinct, it aligns itself immediately against any which threatens the system because if it does otherwise then the system may turn on it. It fights and searches for fights against free radicals only because it wishes to formulate a response in case it is ever caught off guard by one of them. When it is overwhelmed by what a free radical reveals, it then expels it. It cannot run away, because it depends on the system - and it had already made an enemy of the free radical and the system if it does not fight to expel it. It would become alone - and that is unbearable.

It is by this social use of language that one claims private ambition is always traitorous behavior to the purpose of language, and can accuse it of being what it calls 'objectivist'. 'Objectivist' being just shorthand for one which has a privation of ambition - an ambition that utilizes more of the human faculty than just dialectics and language. In fact, the idea that humans have a capacity for true and effective thoughts/actions more than just language is a threat to its very premises of equality.

The binary thinking of friend/foe imposed upon the chimp by the system, makes her have to accuse her enemies of being disingenuous or faulty when they utilize language at all. That is, one cannot use language and not also assign it as much or more value than what the language is supposed to express. If one (who has private ambition) were not an 'objectivist', then, one would not be using language at all, to the demoralized chimp.

Unique thoughts, beliefs, knowledge, wisdom, or truth are very rare and precious.

A truly inspirational mind is wrought from artistic genius, no matter which practice, profession, or specialization. Thus if a lecture on biology is interesting then it is due to the genius of a top biologist. If a military tactic is proficient, saving lives of countless soldiers, then it is due to the genius of a military commander. If a building is sturdy, and remains standing after earthquakes, floods, and bombs then again it is due to the genius of an architect. And from these (superior) minds filters downward knowledge and wisdom to the level of commoner. The same is true for thoughts and beliefs. The commoner's beliefs (Human/Modern) have been filtered down and diluted.

Thus when a Modern tells you that s/he is special, demands recognition, attention, "clarification of views", whatever, then s/he is using second-hand knowledge. It has come from other sources. And so, in dealing and interacting with the commoner, the Modern, a few simple questions and examination will inevitably lead you to second-hand and third-hand, or lesser sources. For example, on ILP, many there will outright brag about where/whom they receive their knowledge (from book-read dead philosophers). Some of them will even recite verbatim classical arguments, and be somewhat capable of defending positions based on what dead philosophers have said or claimed long ago. But second-hand knowledge is just that, *second-hand*. It does not portray or prove that the reader, the Modern, actually understood the depth of her regurgitated knowledge. Just the opposite, the Modern tends to 'copy' her beliefs/thoughts from the source (a dead philosopher).

Now apply these analogies today to the entire populace of humanity. How many Moderns are truly interesting, truly inspiring, truly argumentative and backed by authentic reasoning ability? Have you met any? Other than a couple here, in this forum, there really are none.

But there is more to greatness and superiority of geniuses, as mentioned above. From the Biologist, the Commander, the Architect, the Philosopher, etc. are derived common benefits. The commoner, the average human, the Modern benefits from previous (representative) geniuses without knowing it. Awareness is not required. For example, the soldier on a battlefield doesn't need to be aware of his General's orders, in order to be benefited by them. The lesser, the subordinate, only needs to follow, and does so which requires Reflex and not an act of Forethought. Thus it is the nature of common people, Moderns, to follow and act reflexively (on instinct), not reason, thought, or doubt.

And so philosophies, wisdom, knowledge, truths, information, data, claims, prepositions, arguments, all pass through a populace and societies of humans, without deep awareness. The Modern copies, often times verbatim (word-for-word) what s/he has heard elsewhere, from authorities that can be identified. Politically, this is most obvious, as younger adults and teenagers attempt to fit into social, sub-cultural groupings. In order to 'fit' into a group, you must at least attempt to 'speak' (and "think") like the group.

Why doesn't ILP *produce* interesting threads and content?

Because they ban 'philosophy' when it occurs, out of contempt or spite from moderators and administrators, when certain questions are asked or topics are breached. There is an underlaying structure, a foundation to their beliefs, that they simply will not question, and deem "politically incorrect". Once this layer of belief, value, and knowledge is tapped into, and fault lines appear, then ILP reveals the composition and design of its foundation. For these Moderns, and other fools, "Philosophy" is a front, a guise, a mask. They are not *actually* philosophers, nor are they truly interested in the practice of philosophy. But rather they want to use the name of philosophy for political and personal gain.

"I have the Truth, and therefore my ideologies and personal values are validated!"

The actual practice of philosophy is different and inevitably leads to conflict (of values). Yes it's obvious that people have different values, backgrounds, experience, and ideals. But what is not obvious, is which of these values are worth fighting for, or in the case of ILP, worth silencing enemies by force, or banishing them completely. In which case, philosophically, means that you-yourself have probably been defeated. Doubt is a dangerous weapon and compulsion, to actively distrust, undermine, or outright destroy traditional authorities and established truths. So it won't take long for a genuine 'philosopher' to begin causing problems, leading to social conflict. WHO is an authority on WHAT and WHY? Even this question, by itself, is enough to cause your banishment on ILP forum.

The average ILP reader and writer is compelled by status and identity. Smears said it best, it's about appearances, *appearing* to be philosophical or a philosopher, and to *schmooze* and bump-elbows with each-other. It's about patting each-other on the back and belonging to a little club. ILP is "wannabe" philosophy, but, not quite up to the level, and not wanting to sacrifice a level of humility that exposes ignorance, which is dangerous. Because it is that same ignorance which limits and truly suppresses the mind, being too cowardly to confront what is unknown, or "ought to be explored". Thus ILP never exceeds a basic and simple level of Politics. Perhaps ILP will always be castrate and impotent, female-oriented, lacking spirit, drive, and vigor. ILP will cling to and clench dead topics, religion, (Abrahamic) "God", what did Trump say, leftism vs traditionalism, simple conversations, pop culture, etc.

"Racist!"

In the Modern day, people calling each-other "Racist" or "Are you a racist?!" ought to be understood for what it is: an act of violence. The liberal-leftist use 'Racist!' as a tool or weapon, effectively. For example, let's presume that you are Ethnicity A or Race B. As a male, you are proud of yourself and your genetic heritage. You are proud to be Ethnicity A and Race B. And when a Modern confronts you, sniffing-out that you are a proud male, will begin to question and doubt, to undermine such pride, implying that if you love/prefer "your own" race then you must necessarily "hate" other races (simple Dualism). "Are you a racist?!"

Now the proud individual (usually male since females are less proud of race and more susceptible to shame tactics) is on the defensive. What can an individual do in spite of the liberal-leftist Modern? Should you engage the liberal-leftist rationally or reasonably? No, you should not and cannot. Because the liberal-leftist has already begun a process of violence. Even if you were to ask, "Well what do you mean by racist?" then you eventually must submit that you "prefer your own kind" versus others, thus making you a 'racist' in some small way. And if you are a "racist" in some small way (a degree of preference toward self, self-love, pride) then you are 'guilty' (according to the liberal-leftist) of committing a type of "thought-crime".

Thus, pathologically, the liberal-leftist is seeking out pride in others by what s/he lacks in herself. This is political nihilism, hatred of any group solidarity or genetic isolation (family and clan allegiance, blood-ties). Therefore the accusation of 'Racist!' is implied violence from the start. Because you value and preserve yourself, because you have a self-preservation instinct (especially white/european males) then you are "guilty of a crime" and liberal-leftism justifies punishment against you. This is the logical thought process of liberalism-leftism.

If you lean to the right, politically, or are even proud of yourself individually, in any way, then the accusation of "Racist!" (and to a lesser extent "Sexist!") ought to be construed for what they are, as acts of violence, to justify punishment of contrived crimes. What Modern Leftist-Liberalism demands of its (SJW) crusaders is self-sacrifice, race-mixing, miscegenation, and destruction of all tradition or family-value. Thus the "SJW movement" is an extension of Christian Abrahamism and Nihilism.

Perhaps at the core, Leftist-Liberalism is against 'blood' identity, against 'genes' and genetics. The Leftist-Liberal notion of "Freedom" is to be "free" from blood-inheritance, which ultimately would mean demonizing natural beauty, which is also why liberal-leftists want to "redefine" beauty with "fat-pride", as-if that could change the underlying mechanic of male-female sexual attraction, that, males have deep genetic instincts of attraction to sexually fertile and younger women.

In Europe and North America, the X button is used to confirm inputs, to affirm selections, to say Yes.
In Japan, the O button is used to confirm, affirm, say Yes.

The X marks the spot, the X is a cross-hair, a target, to pinpoint a spot as accurately as possible, yet, still better visible, better identifiable than simply leaving a small dot somewhere.
The straight lines make it well visible because them being straight, they are not likely to be a chaotic, random pattern which just so happened to come about but it is identified as something deliberate, something intentional.

The two lines are arranged in a symmetrical fashion, with 2 symmetry axis, actually 4 but then it’s not necessarily an X but a might be a + symbol.

The O, the circle, also looks symmetrical but it’s not easy to approximate the center of the circle precisely, at least much less precisely than with an X symbol. Especially not if the circle is larger. That is, unless tools like a ruler or a circle tool are used to help with that.

The X is more of an active affirmation while the circle more of a passive one. The spear-tip versus the round (w)hole.

Vice-versa, in Europe and North America, the O symbol is used to cancel selections, to say No. While in Japan the X symbol is used to say No.

Kind of like the woman who says No to her suiters, in Europe and NA.


The O symbol can also mean Zero, nothing, non, No.
So in the absence of something, the circle can mean a universal denial.
But you never use a circle to deny a specific thing. You don’t encircle a false statement to show that it’s false. You may cross it out.


It’s like this

If there is something present, a thing, then you affirm it by encircling it. You could also put an X on it but that’s a sign of disrespect for the object or person at hand, a lack of care for the thing at hand. Do I brand the cow with an hot iron or do I put an ornament around its neck?

But on the other hand you don’t reject anything by putting a circle around it, that you can only do by using an X or something along those lines. But this way of rejection is ambiguous because it could be interpreted as a mark of ownership, of picking something by marking it with an X.

So how do you unambiguously reject some-thing?
You encircle it and then cross it out with a single diagonal line.
I show with the circle that I am considerate, that I consider this particular thing, and then I show that I break the symmetry of my circle deliberately. I show that I am capable of and have considered the thing in question, that I have recognised it and then I show how I reject the encircled thing.

That's interesting.
I did not know that about the X & the O buttons.

X is also the minimization of space through contraction. Order is the minimization of uncertainty. From 3.14 pi to 1 or 0. Two dimensional to one dimensional space.

I read a news article: "Americans Are Dying With an Average of $62K of Debt"

Isn't it an interesting observation that parents and people can leave behind inheritance and wealth to their children or as donations to others, but not debt? This ideal (that death erases debt) is symbolic of Modern hedonism. All the good is retained (inheritance by the next generation) but not the bad/evil (debt). Imagine for a moment what would happen to 'Capitalist' USA if debt could not be erased, but instead, forced onto children or others. Imagine if a gambler's $100,000 debt did not *magically disappear* upon his death. Imagine if Moderns were forced to confront and deal with fiscal (or moral) responsibility. How would this change (Modern) society?

Then again, if death can erase debt then what is the pricetag on life?

In order to unearth and apprehend 'deeper' truth and wisdom, philosophers must be ready for the costs of labor. It is not the requirement of a philosopher to 'help' or enlighten others, or to teach strangers the countless errors of their ways. Wisdom has costs too. With regard to online forums, a tit-for-tat approach works well. Not just one philosopher or thinker can continually produce and dominate, but must meet the challenge of other producers who seek to hone their (philosophical) craft and reason-ability. However when there is a lack of production (lack of thinkers) then almost any input becomes more worthy than it deserves.

In terms of quality over quantity, the difference of one forum versus another becomes obvious. Those focused on Quantity really produce (large amounts) with the intent to 'get lucky' that something they've said hits a mark and causes a reaction, regardless the fact that the intentions of Quantity-dominated material are also different than Quality-dominated. In this way, a potential thinker who posts quantity on a lesser forum (ILP) maybe motivated by simple attention-seeking instead of a greater forum, focused on quality, that attempts to derive more interesting philosophy, or more truthful, or more insightful, or plainly more valuable (to anybody and everybody).

Military Conquest:

There is a way to determine the superiority of individual and groups of females by a simple logical pattern. The females of a powerful tribe, group, or country are not *shared* with outsiders. Because why should a militarily dominant tribe of humans "give" their women away to lesser, inferior tribes? They do not, historically, and even genetically. Thus if you truly desire to look into human hierarchies then you must identify the females of historically powerful and dominant (militarily) groups of humans. Within them you will almost certainly notice this pattern.

The females of a superior race willfully do not breed with those of inferior races, because the notion of doing so is most contemptuous and repulsive to them, as-if a human would copulate with any lesser mammal, a horse, a dog, a sheep, or a monkey, etc. Thus such (superior) humans, Noble which is opposed to the Modern, would readily choose death before the disgrace of such (modern) ideals and perversion. And Nobles would similarly become disgusted and disdainful of humans which practice and advocate such hedonism (Bestiality).

Patterns would become more apparent, over time, as Superior women would continue to choose their own kind (of men) who also continue the (military) dominance of their inter-connected group. This could be, and most certainly is, a signal of genetics, highly selective breeding patterns, as well as unique (militaristic) culture. For example, within that Militaristic tribe, males dominating and mating with foreign females would be much more tolerable than their own females mating with outsiders which would be a *crime*. Their own tribe would turn on, resulting in exclusion and/or death, a female who transgressed her own society, and mated with the (slave) males of the conquered tribes. It would be forgivable however for the militaristic males, Warriors, to lay seed in foreign lands and with foreign women, but never marry them or take them as first wives.

Thus, today, "Conservative" and "Traditional" women are under attack for their "Privilege" of being born and bred into militaristic families and conventions, naturally restricting themselves from fraternizing with lesser humanity (the conquered and enslaved) and feeling revulsion and disdain for them.

This is another extension of what is meant by "Master and Slave Dialectic" or Master and Slave *morality*.

I see the result of hyperfeminity with Jews and the result of hypermasculinity with Islam.

The former cuts the dicks of their men and has them believe humility, masochism and capitalism is their purpose. Degeneracy through outbreeding and prostitution is a problem. To gain power, use sex as a temptation on the powerful. Utilize "tolerance" or "peaceful" powers of money, the lowest common denominator.
The latter cuts the clits of their women and has them believe in pride through taking care of their husbands, like mothers over sons. Men, behaving like boys who were given permission to do anything they wish by a father - defending the father whom gives them that permission. Degeneracy through inbreeding is a problem. To gain power, utilize religious interpretation to be favorable for yourself (Sunni/Shiite).

There's nothing more insufferable and draining than being forced to align oneself with naive and seemingly well-intentioned idiots whom gather the admiration of other idiots of the same allignment, forcing a treatment of them as if they have your respect. Often a result of their stupidity being mistaken for bravery.

The demand for tolerance passes over into a demand for weakness when the proposed behavior would result in the nullification of the threat of intolerance, whether in the present or in the future, on the part of the one being appealed to or commanded.

It does happen, and as to why, because they are infected by a memetic disease.

See 2:30



Notice the subtle punching to the right? If you want to limit your daughter's choice of partners you are barbaric, and such practices should be kept out of Europe.

Here in Europe we are modern, and this means being permissive cuckservatives and liberals. Anything else is 'evil', 'primitive', 'barbaric', and not to mention 'sexist'.

I can't listen to the video just yet but will later.

There is a difference between military dominance and cultural (nihilistic) dominance. A country can be strong militarily, but if not culturally (spiritually) strong, can have their women taken through more insidious and deceptive practices, including the enforcement of strong religious rituals (church state), indoctrination of children, prostitution-kidnapping, brainwashing, and especially guilt/shaming tactics. This is why, classically and historically, European military dominant societies have been adverse to Judaic infiltrators and semitic foreign influence, as they represent opposing values. The militaristic european, is told by middle eastern semites and foreigners that he (the european man) must be 'tolerant', sharing, humanistic.

And all of this is easily translated to: "share your aryan and white women with us".

Good video,

In this we can see how the Arabian culture is very paternalistic and culturally dominant. They refuse to share their daughters with others, this case being the 'hindu', as they consider them enemies or inferiors. When it comes to superior cultural groups, they only accept racial/genetic outsiders as long as that outsider claims loyalty to their religion (Islam in this case).

The same is true for Judaism in the middle east, which they convert new members through marriage and mix blood, miscegenation.

Furthermore,

In the west we can see how 'liberalism' has become a dominant cultural force. The colored and inferior races are "allowed" to mate with white women, produce mixed (slavish) offspring, and even marriage, usually at a cost, as long as the ethnic foreigner claims loyalty to 'liberalism' and other multi-kulti values, like advocating for pro-homosexuality and pro-hedonism.

Proverbs 26:28 wrote:
A lying tongue hates those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth works ruin.

R. Wardlaw, D. D. wrote:
As to the flatterer, he is the most dangerous of characters. He attacks at points where men are naturally most successfully assailable; where they are most in danger of being thrown off their guard and giving him admission. And when by his flatteries he has thus got the mastery, then follows the execution of the end for which they were employed — "worketh ruin." The expression is strong, but not stronger than experience justifies. It even works ruin to the most interesting characters — characters admired and worthy of the admiration — by infusing a principle that spoils the whole, the principle of vanity and self-conceit. They thus lose their loveliest and most engaging attraction. And whatever be the selfish object of the flatterer, his selfishness obtains its gratification by the ruin of him whom his flatteries have deceived.

The West was flattered by a financial elite and Jewish minority upon the defeat of NSDAP Germany. Their praises were sung, as the celebration covered the genocidal and demoralizing policy inflicted on post-WW2 Germany; to mention nothing of post-WW1. And, what mass of people are more easily manipulated than by their own vanity?

Lyndon B. Johnson wrote:
If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you.

It is not enough to look at the political climate today and ask who are victims - but also ask: who are given praises? And, with the self-righteous anger that comes from a mass of people who are convinced they are wronged (when they are not), what is more flattering?

The old methods used to stir the masses of white men in the past are being used to stir all but white men - to ensure there is never a peaceful moment for people to truly look up.

It is a trait of nobility to seek, not merely subsistence but, greatness.

The noble man seeks, not merely the most in all things but, the best.

Beauty is what catches your eye.

Personality is what draws you in closer.

Character is what keeps you interested for the long haul.


If a person is lacking in character then they are doomed to superficial, meaningless relationships. Nothing enduring, and especially not for a whole lifetime. Thus a person without character (Dignity, Spirit, Pride) is one you cannot trust, and will fail you in the long run. Character represents internal strength. Beauty or personality, alone, is not enough. Just because a mask is beautiful, doesn't mean there is something substantial behind it. This is a tell and identifier of beautiful women, who are an empty shell, with nothing inside and often a nihilistic, self-hating impulse.

If a man or woman has beauty, personality, AND character then this is Noble. Somebody you can count on for generations. For 1000 years.

An ally criticizes out of caring and in such a way which precludes disunity among one's own.

For a mind which separates into good and evil, 1/0, the transposition of doctrine may happen with the disparaging of an association. For example, disparage Christianity as a repressive or misogynist or homophobic teaching, and one can convince the simple to reject all that is taught inside it - whether wise or not, by virtue of that particular association. Where it is less clear, or where humble ignorance is the best replacement for the disaffection of the values of the now disassociated, one may easily suggest their own replacement judgments. Now being no longer beholden to any framework but their own intuition, that what a book once limited can now be replaced with flattery and appeals to self-interest. With no standard outside themselves, they will believe any promise, no matter the long term consequence.

This is the behavior for every simple cult follower, who attaches to a personality - fictional or not - and then follows them until they are blemished by some other and more powerful influence. Hopping from figure to figure, because they cannot pay the costs of one or the cost of being their own.

A thymotic war against thymos itself is as nihilistic as a erotic love of eros itself.

To hate hate makes as much sense as to love love. The new war of hate against hate is distinctly a Christian cultural battle where the greatest value is love of love itself, as Christ is love and it is demanded that Christians love Him.
