A Brilliant Article Worth Reading.

This is an open letter written to the French President. It is very good and delivers some stellar points. I would highly recommend reading it.

“It would appear that American nationalists have historically cared more about your country than you do.”

As a side-note it is worth mentioning that the centralisation seen in Norway, just to pick an example, function as a way to erase Norwegian identity. I’ve spoken about it with my brother before, and my mother actually just brought it up as well. If you want to know a territory and a people it is worth going out into the country since major cities won’t tell you much.

When you then wage “war” against the districts, turning villages and hamlets into desolate “ghost towns,” you’ll force everyone to cluster in the major cities and towns, which means that charming architecture, dialects, quirky habits and traditions all go down the toilet.

As I’ve mentioned before on this blog of mine; my dad complained to me last year that “everything looks the same now in Europe.” He lamented how London used to have so much character and how Europe’s capitals now all look increasingly “streamlined.” It would appear that this call for “diversity” doesn’t include those of us who are native to these territories and as I’ve also mentioned before it doesn’t really include anyone else’s true identity either, since shock ensues whenever the mainstream media (or anyone else) reports that mass importing people from Africa and the Middle East doesn’t just include getting fancy-dress and spicy food…..

 

 

“The Gender Agenda” by Lis Goddard & Clare Hendry.

This book came into my possession courtesy of our local vicar, who lent it to me after having read my review of “Simply Christian” by Tom Wright.

The work is a discussion between two Christian women regarding female leadership and involvement in the Church.

I can hardly think of a topic more relevant in this day and age where female priests seem to be the only vicars left, in addition to female bishops, even female lesbian bishops!

With the emphasis on LGBTQ and egalitarianism it is certainly surprising to read the actual Holy Bible and see how the texts contrast with our “modern values. ”

In my review of “Simply Christian” I wrote among other things this:

“I’m also questioning the presence of female priests and authority figures within Northern European churches when it is explicitly said in 1 Timothy 2 (12) : “I permit no woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.” I guess it can be counter-argued that women are keeping the faith alive and that it is better with female priests than no priests.”

That is probably a good place to start, because the Holy Bible does certainly not come across as a feminist manifesto, to put it that way, even though Lis Goddard seems to think so.

Her interpretation of The Holy Bible hinges on our Bibles being translated wrong … which means that both my copy of the Bible and Clare Hendry’s copy are faulty.

Lis Goddard zooms in on what could have been the intended or original meaning of certain words in the texts and she also seem to believe that Genesis depicts a gender-neutral Utopia of sorts, before the Fall….

Eve is created from Adam’s rib and God first turns to Adam when Eve has not only been disobedient but has brought her man into disobedience as well. A great deal of people will read this as follows: God created the man first, gave him a companion “of him,” and was upset with Adam when he failed in his leadership, punishing both parties (even the snake).

Lis Goddard and those who agree with her, would claim that there was no such thing as any leadership to begin with. That Adam and Eve were equals, that both were leaders in their own right, but that the Fall distorted this Utopia leading to gender-unbalance, which was finally corrected with the arrival of Jesus Christ and the Kingdom.

My impression after reading “The Gender Agenda” is that joining a Bible reading group might put you into a situation where after staring at certain passages in the Bible for a prolonged period of time, you’ll start seeing all sorts of strange things…Everything that is all of a sudden isn’t and everything that isn’t is.

In other words: if you analyse something long enough you’ll eventually get whatever you desire, seeing your own reflection after turning what you are reading into a mirror.

The same can be observed in a lot of modern journalism.

I’m not saying this to be rude, but the book certainly gives off this vibe and as I result I opened up my Bible again to read Genesis to see what I had missed.

The passage that Goddard and Hendry constantly fall back on doesn’t even occupy a full-page. It is a remarkably short section spanning from Genesis 2 (18)  up until the Fall in Genesis 3. After reading this section again, a couple of times, I find it difficult to agree with Goddard’s interpretation.

A good point made by Hendry is that if a woman is supposed to listen to her husband, and he is the head of the household, then how does that work out if a woman is to be the head of a Church? This might be the reason as to why there were supposed to be male monarchs back in the day. Will a female Queen be “King enough”? Or will she be swayed by her husband as “the head,” in effect meaning that the man is ruling the territory rather than the actual Queen?

Yet with all of this said; it is written in the Bible that women should study, prophesy, and pray, not to forget that there are important female characters present in the Biblical texts which is something that anti-Christian critics wouldn’t acknowledge or downplay. Women are to have a role and be active, the question is how.

An interesting point made in “The Gender Agenda” is that Paul was writing to different Churches, helping them with whatever issues that they were facing. It was also mentioned that women and men were probably seated according to their gender, just like in the synagogues, which can explain why Paul says that women need to be quiet in Church. No gossiping and chit-chat in other words. Here is an interesting quote from 1 Corinthians 9 (22):

“To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.”

That quote might shed some light on Paul’s letters. It is also of interest to note that disagreements was a factor from the very beginning of the establishment of the various Churches:

“I appeal to you brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree and that there be no dissensions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgement. For it has been reported to me by Chloe’e’s people that there is quarrelling among you, my brethren.” 1 Corinthians 1 (10)

I would recommend reading Goddard & Hendry’s book as it is extremely relevant in today’s Church environment. If you’ve attended any Church services in Scandinavia or the U.K., then you’ll know what I mean.

Reading the Old & New Testament will instantly put you in a situation where you’ll be worried that you’re supporting heresy, which is probably why young people turn to Islam or Orthodox Christianity.

Pluralism and political correctness is hurting Northern churches, who would probably gain more by proclaiming God as the God and the Holy Bible as the Truth. If you start doubting yourself, then others will do as well and in today’s political and spiritual environment, I don’t know if that’s the best way forward.

To conclude; it is certainly at odds with everything in our modern pop-culture to be a practising Christian, especially if you are a woman, since being: argumentative, loud, not modestly dressed and especially having authority over men are all characteristics that are currently being celebrated, in addition to abortion. Nothing gains wider praise than women involved with the military, ministry or politics. So if you are looking at the Bible and Christianity through a conservative lens you’ll probably think that you’ve woken up in Hell, or at least in a world that is in a state of absolute chaos.

Why I Don’t Go To The Library…

This household is filled to the brim with books. Everyone is just as curious and everyone is a bit of a collector.

I myself have plenty of unread books such as: Shakespeare’s works, Viking texts, Norwegian classics, all sorts of other more modern works covering everything from the entertainment industry, to spirituality, history and whatnot. In addition there are piles of Magazines, newspapers, and little reminders to check out digital articles, recommended to me by others, or that I’ve stumbled into myself.

Add unto to this all of the other books that are around the house belonging to others, and you start looking at quite a lot of reading material.

I therefore found myself in a familiar situation when I earlier this year acquired a library card and brought with me a pile of books that remained largely unread……

The catch of course is that you’ll be billed once your books are overdue, and when you then pay the bill and re-new your “lease” you’ll only be billed again, and again, as you forget to read whatever it was that you were going to read in whatever pile stationed somewhere, wherever that was…

What I gathered from my reading about ancient England was that people sometimes created false charters to feign legitimacy to certain territory. Total tribalism was the norm before unification, which means that one excavation site cannot be held up as “national” evidence when it comes to customs and practises! People have been looking for clues regarding religious activity sometimes regarding “house placement” as an indicator of spiritual affairs.

There have been instances of tons of weapons being thrown into water and researches have been hypothesising that this had to deal with religious rituals, my gut feeling was that maybe this was an act of disarmament. Much like those who are lobbying for gun control in the U.S.A., and have successfully done so across Europe.

Ancestry worship of bones, turning into “Saint-worship” and tribes fighting among themselves for control over the English territory, all made for interesting reading, until I actually had to abort my mission and give the books back.

I never managed to finish the pile and was reminded once again of why I don’t go to the library.

Some Interesting Articles To Read.

“Bishop Athanasius Schneider of Kazakhstan, 57, told an interviewer from Milan’s Il Giornale last week that “the phenomenon of so-called “immigration” represents an orchestrated and long-prepared plan by international powers to radically change the Christian and national identities of the European peoples.” (READ THE ARTICLE HERE)

This is the conclusion I’ve reached as well by simply looking at the placement of certain population groups within all of Europe’s Nations. It is obvious that it is a long term de-stabilisation plan by people who hate us to no end. 

I will let other people compile potential enemy lists over who could possibly be guilty… It’s not like people aren’t compiling these kind of lists already….

…some theories are more popular than others…..and will continue to gain ground by the hour I’m sure…….

(I’m personally not a big fan of conspiracy theories. I find a great number of them troubling, for the simple reason that it might make sense, but then it doesn’t if the accused group stand to lose. All I see are people who will lose in the end when reading or hearing of popular narratives of conspiracy. What would make sense would be to think broader, or maybe I overestimate people. In fact I’m suspecting that that might be the case. If I’m guilty of over-thinking then Europe & America are standing face to face with a threat that is shooting itself in the foot.)

With the current culture war and student movements on both sides of the Atlantic, not to forget the underground “scene” of self-taught individuals on the opposite political spectrum who openly blog or hack while being in “stealth mode,” I’m sure that boats will be rocked and alignments change, whether it is for the better or for the worst.

Loyalties might swiftly change and old narratives of friendship might suddenly be forgotten.

Leaders such as Sebastian Kurz & Matteo Salvini, not to forget “freedom fighters” such as the imprisoned Tommy Robinson are the kind of types that will salvage the mothership that is Europe. If they fail we will see the uprising of what their critics accuse them of being, “the great evil” that the mainstream media think they see in U.S. President Donald J.Trump. If the U.S.A. and Europe are not salvaged politically, there will be an attempt to do so from the bottom up. That is a given. There will always be those who refuse to give up. I predict that the situation in America will become especially dire in the years to come, unless the culture issue and the demographic issue is solved. 

So where does this strange self-destructive attitude we can observe in The Western World come from? Is it possible to manufacture Ethno-masochism? Well apparently yes…

Don’t expect that these type of initiatives won’t backfire though.

They do and they will. If your people win a fight, whether culturally, demographically or out on the battlefield, then you ought to remember how you won, because your enemies surely will!

And those who are clever will study closely, h-o-w y-o-u w-o-n!

The problem with Western culture today, is that we are neither equipped to deal with victory nor defeat. Or that is the aim of political correctness. The aim is clearly to pacify people and ensure that the fight or the battle is lost before it even starts.

The goal is obviously to have a Nation caving in on itself, self-annihilating, with the one institution falling after the other like domino bricks, and an angry populace wondering what the heck is going on, eventually resulting in violence in the streets and disorder, so that enemy elements placed within the Nation can initiate their part while their partners come in from the outside.

You have to be mean (by today standards) to win. People are inherently mean and people will be mean, even those who normally aren’t, the question is rather, can you be mean in a clever fashion without your operation backfiring either on you or your children?

That is the question and that is a good one indeed, all things considered.

From Africa Digest

 

I don’t really follow “trade wars” or “tariff wars” and find this quote to be interesting:

“The Commerce Department is currently investigating whether foreign auto imports pose a risk to national security.”

You can read more here: Germany Willing To Cut Tariffs.

Here is a genuine Russia collusion. I remember reading somewhere, sometime, somehow, about Russia providing energy to Eastern European Nations and using this politically, funny enough I didn’t catch that Western European Nations were in on it too… Maybe they should get their power from Norway instead 😛 Funny how everyone is spinning the Russia narrative as far as the U.S. is concerned when Europeans are blatantly dealing massively with the official “eternal-bad-guy-Putin.” Remember; everything is always Russia’s fault. Hilarious. I also recall that I read in a French newspaper, somewhere, sometime, somehow, that the then French President had lots of interests (or maybe it was France Inc.) in Iraq due to business dealings with Saddam, so their opposition to the war was not so much humanitarian as it was money related. Funny enough this story was confirmed when I read something else concerning the Iraq war….It is always interesting to figure out what drives people’s “official concern.” Lately I’ve been wondering why American celebrities don’t starve themselves for all of those kids who’ve been separated from their parents in inner-city America, but then again, I guess you have to come from anywhere but America for Hollywood to bother…..

Whether you dislike or like the current U.S. President I strongly recommend reading this: “Trump – The Art Of The Deal” by Donald J.Trump & Tony Schwartz.

Here is a most intriguing article from The New York Times: The New York Times Praising Donald J.Trump – before he ran for office.

Here are some selected quotes from the article, published in 1984….

“Donald J. Trump is the man of the hour.” – The New York Times.

“He deserves full credit for his success,’ says another builder.”

“Mayor Koch says that, indeed, what is good for Donald Trump is often good for New York.”

“To others, the notion that Mr. Trump seems to be able to do just about anything he sets his mind to is terrifying.”

“Roy M. Cohn, Mr. Trump’s friend and attorney, adds: ‘He has an uncanny sense of knowing that something is a good deal when it looks dismal to everyone else.”

“That Mr. Trump was able to obtain the location, when every real-estate developer in the world would have done just about anything to get it, is testimony to Donald Trump’s persistence and to his skills as a negotiator.” (my highlighting).

“He is an almost unbelievable negotiator,’ says Irving Fischer of HRH Construction. ‘I don’t worship at the shrine of Donald Trump,’ he says, ‘but our company has given up trying to negotiate costs with him. We just say: ‘Tell us what you want, you’re going to get it anyway.”

“He says that his concern for nuclear holocaust is not one that popped into his mind during any recent made-of-television movie. He says that it has been troubling him since his uncle, a nuclear physicist, began talking to him about it 15 years ago.”

“When he finally speaks up, he says hat he is on the commission because the young men who went to Vietnam got a bad deal – which, about the worst thing that can happen to anyone.”

“The day before he has sent $3,000 to an unfortunate family he has red about in the newspaper, something he does frequently, according to Mrs. Foerderer.”

“That Mr. Trump builds shops and apartments for the world’s wealthiest people makes him that much more prone to attack.”

“If you go with Donald to see an art collection, he’s not that interested. He’d rather look out the windows at building.”

“His wife describes him as an all-American boy who likes country music best and prefers a steak and aked potato to anything called cuisine.”

“Mrs. Trump says they like to attend Broadway openings an that they frequent the ballet and opera. Mrs. Trump is active in support of the United Cerebral Palsy Fund and other charities, as well as the New York City Opera. She is also an active supporter of Ronald Reagan.”

“He has dificulty now figuring out who his real friends are, as billionaires will.”

The White House Chief of Staff made waves online after untangling an American flag: “Once A Marine, Always A Marine.”

I enjoyed this article written by Steve Hilton until he wrote this:

“But we have to recognize that the melting pot is cracking. Years of uncontrolled immigration – and a creeping acceptance of separatism, boosted by identity politics – risk importing the disastrous doctrine of “multiculturalism” that is prevalent in Europe.”

The U.S.A. has been a multi-racial construct, arguably since the very beginning, with absolute “separatism,” before the federal government made segregation “illegal.” I say illegal, since people now self-segregate, which roughly means that the “melting-pot” never really worked on a street level. What I recognise in Europe is imported American multiculturalism, so I’m not sure which planet Hilton is living on… I find it annoying to see such lies in digital “print.”

Radical “multiculturalism” is a relatively new phenomenon in Europe. There is a reason as to why Europe never became Muslim and there is also a reason as to why we are so very pale……One foreigner now and then doesn’t really make much of a difference, but importing hordes of people will ruin the peace and comprise the integrity of your Nation.

It is especially dangerous if you mass import young men, who are in their “peak aggression” age.

Multiculturalism never really works, regardless of where in the world people try it, it always results in “separatism” and can only be held together by a rough, police state. It always results in fragmentation. Mixing on a large-scale only happens as a result of unhinged violence, where the men of one tribe are killed off and their women raped.

Inter-Ethnic diversity is a challenge great enough.

Anyone who welcomes anything else is culturally and demographically suicidal. Nothing less.

People = culture.

People = behaviour patterns on average.

There is no such thing as “magic soil.” Period.

If you mass import people from Uganda into Norway, then you’ll get Uganda in Norway.

If you mass import Arabs into France, then you’ll get an Arab Nation in the middle of Europe.

If you mass import Chinese people into Canada, you’ll get China Inc. in Canada.

If you mass import people from Latino countries into the U.S.A, then the culture, the practises, the voting patterns and whatnot will be coloured by this.

Apparently it is very difficult to follow this kind of logic………

Any person who does not understand demographics should be banned from public service.  It is that dangerous to play around with. An increase in violence and division is a given….

 

New Scientist: Secret Map Of The Brain.

Overarching narratives. That’s what becomes obvious when reading New Scientist. Don’t get me wrong I love “the concept” of a Science Mag but I ask myself why there is such limited diversity when it comes to ideas? From reading New Scientist, with their variety of contributors, one would think that climate change caused by humans is canon. Nowhere in the Mag and in fact in none of the issues that I’ve ever picked up, are “sceptics” represented so as to offer an alternative view. The same can be said of the apparent furore over Trump. It is obvious that his administration is perceived as the greatest threat to Science since Old-European theocracy, same with Brexit, even though Alex Halliday on p.47 points out that matters may not be as serious as people would like to think in terms of getting funding and working in a post-Brexit Europe. The editorial in this issue displays hostility towards “new media” as it celebrates that ” British MPs last week grilled Google, Facebook and Twitter representatives over their ineffectual efforts to police their platforms for abuse and hate speech. A draft law in Germany has threatened huge fines if they don’t improve how they operate.” If you look beyond the various articles you can sense an overarching political narrative which makes New Scientist no better than those who they would probably refer to as “unreasonable” … as they themselves are obviously true believers and guardians of certain values. Values that would clash with anyone believing that the internet should remain free, for example. Which is a pity. The issue offers a couple of interesting book reviews, which made me curious. I intend to check out the following:

  • The Vaccine Race: How scientists used human cells to combat killer viruses (Meredith Wadman)
  • The Imagineers of War: The untold story of DARPA, the Pentagon agency that changed the world (Sharon Weinberger)

My last comment is that the letters provided by the readership of NS present an impressive vocabulary and are in some cases better written than the main articles in the Magazine. Maybe NS is fascinating due to their readers, they certainly display a superior word-use in contrast to those who are paid to write for the Magazine, so make sure that you check out the last few pages.

The Chimp Paradox.

I’m almost done with Prof Steve Peters’s book.

After reading the first chapter I was planning on criticising his work for its limited, repetitive, simplified vocabulary. This book is a shockingly  easy read which may leave you feeling underestimated as a reader. Considering what an impressive CV Peters has I expected something very, very heavy, but as this work is intended for the masses I guess it was decided to make it  u-n-d-e-r-s-t-a-n-d-a-b-l-e… (So try not to feel insulted by that and prepare to feel like someone is talking to you like you are an idiot). It is also obvious that Peters is terrified of being a controversial character as he continuously makes sure that he doesn’t generalise, almost apologising for scientific facts as he literally tries to wear a literary bullet proof west in an attempt to not offend anyone. It seems like this book was first published in 1988, then re-published in 2012, so if I’m correct it was originally written way before the SJW craze, which makes me wonder if the SJW mentality has always been a problem…..

The book is good and picks up after chapter 1. It ties in with other mental training books especially Willi Railo’s work  as Peters explains how you can re-program your mind to fulfil your potential. The work becomes increasingly brutal as you go deeper into it with Peters delivering one hard truth after another. “The chimp” is nothing but brilliant as it highlights comical behaviours which evokes hilarious  associations with your inner “chimp” and its irrationality. Prepare to chuckle your way through several of the chapters.

I certainly had some questions answered by reading this book, so even though the language is simplified it delves further into the mind than a lot of other “similar” works. It is of course always advisable to read this type of literature with a pencil or marker at the ready as no mentality-change will ever happen over night. If you want to exert your full potential you have to be committed.

Online Articles You Should Read ;)

Here is a very important article about Professors feeling pressured into political correctness. I really liked this one as the writer was firmly centred in the middle, critiquing the effect of “safe spaces” and whining from the left while critiquing corporate influence and the right trying to shake things up as well. What you get are Professors stuck in the middle, afraid of actually doing what they should be doing: researching and discussing controversial topics.
