What Is New?

Standard

Yes, that’s what I’m wondering after reading a Wikipedia entry yesterday about conspiracies regarding “The New World Order.” It showcases how conspiracy theories have always been around, and that the only factor that seems to change are who the bad-guys are … this is an entertaining read if anything: Illuminati confirmed. ย That being said, there have been cases of creepy conspiracies being blown open for the whole world to see, yet it is quite funny what the human mind can come up with….The New American Spies…..

This is a good article criticising the art of diagnosing people from afar, a practise that appears to be reserved for lone-wolf serial killers and world leaders vilified by the mainstream press. The article is hilarious and calls out all of those mental-health professionals who came out of the wood work to give Norway’s most notorious gun-man all sorts of labels without ever having interviewed him properly. The article then concludes with some telling revelations of how Putin has been diagnosed with Aspergers based on how he moves in videos, a conclusion reached by a research group over at the US Naval War College.

There is also a rule in place within the therapist community called the “GoldwaterRule,” after psychiatrists came out and publicly concluded during the 1964 presidential election that the Republican candidate Goldwater was mentally unfit for office. However it seems like psychiatrists and psychologists alike have thrown this rule under the bus in the wake of Trump, undermining their own credibility by throwing around the one diagnosis after the other. I shared another excellent article from Norway on Twitter not that long ago, where it was pointed out that everyone are talking about mental health disorders at the moment, even those who don’t really have an official diagnosis. Yet the real issue at hand is that people don’t talk about why they feel down or why they might suffer from a panic attack. It has become trendy to self-diagnose while avoiding the real reason as to why one might feel out-of-it. To paraphrase a popular online meme: “Before self-diagnosing yourself, make sure that you are not surrounded by assholes.”

This act of self-diagnosing and assuming all sorts of things is a worrying trend that I got caught up in myself back in 2015, when I prematurely and ridiculously came out of whatever closet. Totally ridiculous; but we are all a product of the times that we live in, regardless of how free-thinking or independent we like to fool ourselves into believing that we truly are :/ So next time you think that you are depressed, well maybe you just have a bad day, and if you feel upset about something then maybe it is time to talk with the individual who is pushing your buttons for whatever reason, if that’s the case. It is also unwise and equally ridiculous to diagnose other people with all sorts of ailments, something I think everyone is guilty of to one degree or another. “This weirdo did so and so, hence he/she has to be insane!” Really? Says who? The fact that medical health professionals also fall into this trap is very telling and does not reflect well neither on their profession nor our current culture of general confusion.

Here is an article about Jordan Peterson a clinical psychologist, with qualifications, who knows what he is talking about. I might not agree with all of his statements, but when talking about human nature, etc; he is incredible. Check him out if you dare!

I do believe that we have legitimate reasons to worry not just in our part of the world but in the US as well, yet this article is interesting and recommend some intriguing books that everyone should probably check out. (It is of interest to note that people on the right are being criticised for adopting leftist methods, it’s a never-ending battle of ideas and values and the people on the other political spectrum want to win the tug of war obviously, and are not happy to see what young conservatives are up to).

If you want to feel dizzy or you need to fall asleep but are struggling, then I can highly recommend reading about theย Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

Here are some interesting videos to check out:

“The Spectator” – 16 September 2017.

Standard

A magazine created by articulated, conservative, nostalgics; with a hint of England’s colonialist past.

Seldom have I laughed so whole heartedly as when I picked up the 16th of September issue of The Spectator, a magazine that I had previously never read before. Toby Young’s opinion piece about the current college culture of hysteria infused over-sensitivity was most amusing, the same could be said of Taki’s High Life, Jeremy Clarke’s Low Life & Melissa Kite’s Real Life.

What interests the readership of this publication based on its commercials and articles? Wine tasting, Opera & Classical Music, Chess & Bridge, advice on etiquette, cruise, horse racing, courses in History and a very funny introductions section saying the following:

Seeking: Single Eligible Gentlemen for introductions with successful, attractive ladies of elite dating agency. Complimentary Membership to eligible gentlemen. ”

What did I take away from reading this issue?

  1. Arabic is “the world’s fifth most spoken language.”
  2. The British Parliament is slightly more complicated than what I previously thought resembling the Norwegian parliament to a degree, due to the diversity that can be seen within both political spectrums on the left and the right.
  3. Iceland has seemingly not evaded political correct enrichment to quote Sebastian Faulks: “The Iceland team had one native Icelander and one Brit; the rest were from Sri Lanka or Pakistan.” Hmmm….it must be fun to live in Iceland if you originally come from those places…
  4. Theresa May is selling out by politically crossing over into Corbyn-land, in a desperate attempt to increase her appeal.
  5. Theresa May is even peddling the “institutional racism” myth in order to have a politically correct reason for as to why certain demographics aren’t faring too well within the Kingdom, this of course she intends to fight politically.
  6. Rod Liddle recounts a story of how a British conductor was sacked without explanation at Oregon University after he allegedly uttered a racist joke to a friend of his; a musician of colour. The musician in question is furious as he doesn’t see the racism. This doesn’t seem to matter much to the thought police.
  7. There are other things to write about than race & gender; Jenny Coad contributed an article about our increased difficulty with making decisions in a world with too many opportunities. This was a very interesting read for sure and a very real issue in our society of over-abundance and conspicuous consumption.
  8. Nick Cohen shone the spotlight on the business of water: ” What interest do Kuwait and Canadian investments funds, Australian banks and Cayman Islands financiers have in ensuring the quality and affordability of our water?”
  9. Damian Reilly writes about Angel Hernandez who used to chemically enhance athletes. This of course got me thinking … as drugging seems to be inevitable if one wants to pull off the impossible physically.
  10. What sounds like an alien description of sexism, from the perspective of our post-modern matriarchy society, is recounted in the review of Claire Tomalin’s autobiography “A Life of My Own.” This adds perspective to how drastically attitudes and opportunities have changed for women; something that can easily be forgotten when enjoying our society of militant egalitarianism.
  11. There is a Banksy mural in Dover.

Reading The Spectator was very enjoyable indeed and something I would highly recommend. In the next issue there will be an interview with Jordan Peterson so that is something to look forward to.

I’m happy that I read this issue actually, as it is the best magazine I’ve read so far and that’s good since thatย spot was previously occupied by a Norwegian Marxist-Leninist publication: “The Class Struggle โ€“ (the daily left-wing newspaper).”

I was actually quite surprised by the quality of that newspaper, but their writing was very good indeed; and as I’ve said multiple times: “that is not an easy thing to find in this day and age.”

If I was to write anything negative about The Spectator it could be that the writers are merciless in their description of others, but then again, that is what makes it so funny, confirming the stereotype of the British with their deadly sarcasm.

 

The Silent Revolution.

Standard

On the 1st of February 2017 I received this in my inbox:

“In a 2005 article published by National Review, Gorsuch argued that “American liberals have become addicted to the courtroom, relying on judges and lawyers rather than elected leaders and the ballot box, as the primary means of effecting their social agenda” and that they are “failing to reach out and persuade the public”. Gorsuch wrote that, in doing so, American liberals are circumventing the democratic process on issues like gay marriage, school vouchers, and assisted suicide, and this has led to a compromised judiciary, which is no longer independent. Gorsuch wrote that American liberals’ “overweening addiction” to using the courts for social debate is “bad for the nation and bad for the judiciary”.[44][21]”

Assisted suicide? That was what stuck with me … mainly because of this horrifying article, which really shook me:ย Industrialised Murder in the Netherlands.

What on earth can be said about a society that wants to kill its own? Socialism at its absolute worst? Socialism reaching its final stage? And why on earth is this a core issue pushed by “liberal” activists on both sides of the Atlantic?

Aren’t these the people who like to think of themselves as generous and highly empathic? So concerned in fact about the well-being of women that they do this:ย French anti-pro-life Law.

Maybe it can be argued that it makes sense to support “assisted suicide” in the name of empathy, but then again where do we draw the lines of what is acceptable or not, not to mention how the Netherlands give their doctors carte blanche to kill their own patients. Good grief, if the times were different we could have put them under foreign administration on the basis of morality ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

Taking into consideration what I’ve posted before on my blog and how the current political landscape looks like today, this article should be of great interest:What’s Happening in America (1966) by Susan Sontag.ย The smell of hatred is just as poignant in 2017 as it was back then. Terrifying.

These articles should be of great interest to anyone & everyone, (especially if you’ve read my book review aboutย Warriors & Citizens), this is how unbalanced our institutions are:The Far Left Academia.ย &The End Of The University.

For anyone who is curious to find out about our “democratic construct” this is certainly mandatory reading:Democracy & The Intellectuals.

Here is a must-see video about McCarthyism. I don’t think anyone is ignorant of what McCarthyism is synonymous with, but it seems like we’ve been all taken for a ride … please take the time to watch this:ย 

Here is a very interesting phone conversation with Nixon actually, I listened to the whole thing. Check it out:ย Nixon on the Phone.

If you are bored and you wonder what Trump’s opposition is up to, then have a laugh at this:ย Anti-Trump propaganda.

Here I’m sharing a couple of videos from Canadian icon Jordan B.Peterson, please take the time to watch these two:

 

I’ll finish off with where I started by sharing a video about ridiculous legislation. Check it out!
