So they have worked incredibly hard. So what? I’ve worked incredibly hard on my writing for the past seven years. Does that mean I deserve something? I suppose I should start holding out for better pay. That’s it! I’m going on strike! And as for opportunity, they are being given the opportunity. An entire national league of their own. Keep in mind that the guys didn’t get a national league until 1987, almost a hundred years after they began serious competition.
It seems to me that these women don’t want to earn anything. They just want the prize. I don’t care how hard they have worked to get where they are. Lots of people work hard but it doesn’t entitle them to anything. It would be bad enough if a business owner that has struggled for the first four years of his business if he suddenly demanded that the government give him money from another business because he had “worked so hard.” But to do that even before he had opened the doors of his business is just mind blowing. But that is exactly what these women are demanding.
Listen up, sweethearts. You don’t deserve anything. We don’t care how hard you’ve worked. Nobody owes you anything. You need to take your lumps like everyone else. Get out there and play your butts off and create a following and customer demand.
In other words, compete equally with the men. That’s what you’ve all been screaming for. Right?
It’s not that I hate disabled people; I don’t. But I don’t give a shit about them either.
Why should I? I’m healthy and whole and nobody gives a shit about me either way. If tomorrow I was disabled I wouldn’t expect anyone to give a shit about me then either. But disabled people seem to have this entitlement factor about them. It gets old real fast. The paralympics have got old real fast as well. I don’t even want to know how much government money is wasted on this event.
That’s untrue. Had the writer made a complaint, whether to Harvard under Title IX or police under real law, the writer could have been separated from the accused, whether by accommodation or protective order. But to use the word “subjugated” reflects the core of the problem, the nature of the mythical entitlement to which even a passive-aggressive alleged victim believes herself entitled. If it’s “subjugation” to not have Harvard, not to mention the legal system, spring into action because you said so, then you’re going to be very unhappy, very “shaken and hollow.”
They lied to you. When they told you magic happens to make your every whim come true, to destroy whomever it is you want destroyed, with nothing more than your word, without the burden of being “subjugated” by a system that offers some fairness to the person you are accusing.
Your misery, and flagrantly misguided grasp of the system, has taken whatever happened to you (and let’s assume something happened for the sake of argument) and made it worse. That’s because they’ve been lying to you. That’s because they’ve created ridiculous and bizarre expectations that Title IX is magic. It’s not.
When news broke that Wells Fargo fired 5300 employees and agreed to a penalty of $185 million, it was shocking. There were three reasons for this shock:
1. The scope of the fraud was massive
2. The penalty was, to a bank with a market valuation of $250 billion, the highest of any bank in America, trivial
3. Of the 5300 employees fired, not one was an upper echelon corporate executive.
Turned out that trench level people were being relentlessly pushed to produce new accounts, new credit cards, anything new that produced new fees, and so they did. Just without the knowledge of the putative account holders, even though they were being charged (or penalized, as the case may be) for these accounts.
The Great One Says This: I’ve been attempting to explain why “global warming” isn’t real for over 20 years. About 10 years ago I was at a place where I was surprised that people still believed in something this stupid. Now that I’ve acquired 10 more years of experience with human stupidity it no longer surprises me.
Global warming is a proxy for human effects on the environment. As usual, humans have created a phantom problem that is smaller than the real problem, which is huge. The huge real problem is overpopulation, because on a finite earth, the more people we cram into it the more we exclude nature, including these regulatory mechanisms.
People are terrified of that idea, so instead they are campaigning against actually functional appliances and non-electric cars, pretending that this pretentious course of action avoids a problem because it addresses one part of it.
Expertise is the same. We specialize in teaching it through schools, certifications, and government qualification programs. This produces a legion of people who know techniques, but lack reasoning skills, which is why we have a proliferation of slick but contentless art, complex but non-functional and insecure software, interior design products that all look the same and are impractical, and bureaucrats who can tell us why we cannot do anything but cannot tell us how to achieve anything. It is a disease of the crowd.
This produces a death spiral where superstitions are established and can never be removed, much as laws are created and never renovated or struck when they are obsolete or inexact, and bloated companies and government agencies linger long after their relevance.
People are afraid to work against the wisdom of expertise lest they, like Farmer Bill, get blamed for an unrelated failure and worse, jailed or sued for denying “contemporary standards.”
Moribund institutions like modern art and rap music linger because people are afraid to criticize them as the calcified and talentless zones they are; absurd government doctrines like affirmative action persist long past their plausible expiration date simply because everyone is afraid to criticize the prevailing expertise. In the meantime, expertise conveniently blocks the vital skills of judgment ability, critical analysis and aesthetic taste.
The Great One Says This: Bruce Charlton hits the nail square with this one. While I have been telling you Hillary will be the next POTUS for . . . what, 7 years since I first predicted it . . . she will not be the functional President. Hillary will serve as a puppet. She will be sent out to public functions. She will wave and ride in cars and have he photo taken and read speeches. But Hillary will not be making decisions. Less so than any POTUS before her. I’ve explained before that all Presidents do what they are told by the State. If they don’t, they get a bullet. Kennedy and Reagan attempted to think for themselves. With Hillary there will be no danger of her thinking for herself. The woman is damn near comatose as it is.
My interest in this matter is spiritual, not political; this is not about an election, it is about the potential for mass spiritual awakening triggered by a recognition of the scale and scope of falsehood being perpetrated in official public discourse; and the potential for many, many people very suddenly (and unexpectedly) to make a decision either to stay inside or to move outside The Matrix of dishonesty and delusion.
But this is a critical time in the history of The West. Either we will decide to continue in the present direction to extinction and self-damnation; or to step off the down-escalator and start climbing back upwards.
Whatever happens in the next few hours or days, and whether or not she gets elected in name; it is now clear that Hillary Clinton will never be President of the United States in any functional sense.
I suspect meditation is not a thing which is supposed to have a ‘standard technique’ (therefore exactly the kind of thing which is typical of alienated modern consciousness which we are aiming to heal).
Furthermore, the language used to discuss such matters seems to be extremely difficult to understand.
However, two things I have found useful are clarity and brooding – meditation as a state characterised by clarity and brooding.
Those are the Machiavellian scenarios. Given the nature of the political class, it seems unlikely that any of those would happen, even if Clinton drops dead tomorrow. Even so, it offers a little glimpse into the future. Over the last century, we have invested enormous power into the office of President.
If you’re wondering how we can flip from republic to empire, a crisis such as the above would offer the opportunity. One candidate that is unacceptable and one that is dead, opens the door for the political class to bypass the voters and install their own man.
A woman who was body-shamed by Playboy model Dani Mathers at an LA Fitness gym has been found—and Mathers may be facing jail time for her actions, TMZ reports.
The celebrity site says the LAPD located the woman, said to be in her 70s, and she’s willing to help prosecutors go after Mathers. The celeb is accused of taking a photo of the naked woman as she changed in the gym’s locker room and posting the pic to Snapchat with the snarky message: “If I can’t unsee this then you can’t either.” The city attorney’s office confirms that the older woman has been located, reports ABC News.
The Great One Says This: I’ve had to learn this lesson the hard way many times. And I still fuck it up. He’s right. Never explain your actions to a woman. Especially one who has turned you down. But unless she is a long term relationship sex partner (and even then you are selective about what you explain) – never explain your actions to a woman. A woman who has turned you down. A woman on a date. A woman fuck buddy. A woman you work with. A woman you work for. You mom, sister, daughter or aunt. Never fucking explain your actions to a woman.
His other mistake, although irrelevant at this point, was to explain WHY he was declining. NEVER explain your actions to a woman who has turned you down.
Setting their hamsters to spinning in order to make sense of your words is half the battle, as it gets them thinking and thinking and thinking about you and wondering if perhaps they made the wrong call. I’ve had women who turned me down show up at my door after midnight in tears demanding to know why I only said “all right” and hung up. Women are insatiably curious creatures. Strangely enough, shutting the door yourself can sometimes inspire them to open it themselves.
If you observe the rhetoric of the feminists, you’ll notice two general themes: first, the desire to be free from all criticisms. And second, for men to believe them and “support” them no matter what.
Feminists want their prospective low-testosterone boyfriends and husbands to fully accept them for who they are no matter how disgusting, slutty, crass, and toxic they are. They want their men to show unconditional loyalty so that they can openly cheat on them and brag about it. And men, if they don’t want to be called a misogynist, must never question their partner’s past or present behavior and remain faithful even if they’re treated like garbage.
. . . . .
Men today who do not submit to the feminist agenda are constantly attacked as being losers, sexists, misogynists, rapists, and so on. In today’s feminist society, you either serve the female imperative or you’re a Neanderthal who is out of touch with the times. Steps are already being made to control every aspect of male behavior in public.
You should also remember that dogs are natural pack animals (think of their cousins, wolves). By being removed from the pack, they become isolated and dependent on their masters. Can you see how the same applies for today’s men?
. . . . .
First, unlike dogs whose owners house them and feed them, men are not supported by women. Women are free to throw men away like used tampons or divorce their husbands to extract their cash. If anything, men are usually the ones who must provide for their wives.
Second, whereas dogs are under the responsibility of their owners, men are expected to be fully responsible in all their interactions with women. It is the man’s job to ensure that a woman is giving consent even if both parties are drunk; it is men who must watch over their own behavior to ensure that what they say is non-offensive and conforming; and it is men who must ensure that women feel perfectly safe and comfortable in all their interactions. If you so much as walk past a woman in the wrong manner, you’ll be accused of rape. Again, it is the man’s responsibility to ensure that he is acceptable enough to share the same space as women, not the other way around. Feminists want “equality” without accountability.
I worked in a homeless shelter last year counseling drug addicts. The patients who were the most violent drug addicts all came from different backgrounds, races, religions, and socio-economic conditions. But there was one thing they all had in common: they weren’t raised by their mom. Their mom either left when they were young, was on drugs herself and so psychologically absent, or at work and so left them with a nanny or daycare. Without moms, society would crumble faster than if there weren’t marketing professionals.
A woman who eschews motherhood is eschewing the one job she is perfectly built for, the one job no one else in the world could even come close to doing well. Perhaps motherhood is boring, but God is probably bored a lot, too.

An example of this is the myth that anorexia is perpetuated by unrealistic portrayals of women. Not only has this explanation of anorexia been disproven, it’s demeaning to women—it tells them simply looking at images of thin women will make them want to hurt themselves.
No woman I have ever met is this stupid, but feminism thinks women are this stupid.
The truth is anorexia is an anxiety disorder caused by the feelings of being out of control that come with menarche. But this truth doesn’t blame the political opposition (men), and so it doesn’t fit with the Marxist narrative. With women believing they’re invariably oppressed by men, now there’s have half the population ripe to be used for political ends.
The new hate crime law is yet more evidence that on BOTH sides of the aisle men are viewed as nothing more than provider modules who exist to be exploited, dehumanized and desexualized in the West, and particularly in the Anglosphere – The United States, Canada, UK, and Australia – where these laws are destined to spread along with the other Stage IV cancers of liberalism and Marxism.
And in the current cultural malaise, conservatives are mostly White Knight enablers of this agenda.
One question remains. Will there be a breaking point when it comes to men falling back in the West? Or will this type of insanity continue until men are castrated to atone for the sin of being born with testosterone and a functioning libido? If this law goes national and then worldwide, chalk another failure up in the long, long line of shit tests failed by Western men.
