Who's Baby Should You Save?

Imagine that you are in a flood and two babies in baskets float near enough for you to reach them for a split second. Each will be out of reach quite soon and you know you only have time to rescue one. One of the babies is your own children and the other you have never seen before. The question is do you save your own child or someone else's child?

There is only one correct answer!

Humans are the only creature capable of going against it's own nature. Most creatures are incapable of going against their nature, a small number of animals can be trained through fear or with food to do something they do not do in nature. But as soon as that fear or food is removed it reverts back to nature. But as I said humans can pervert their nature and it's not hard for us to do.

The answer is that you must always save your own child.

To do anything else would be unnatural, even through it would be a tragedy to know that someone else's baby was in such danger. If you did not save your own child, but instead saved the second child you would be a monster!

A monster is a creature that is unnatural and by such an action you would prove that you were unnatural.

Why is it that our government likes to save other peoples babies at the expense of our babies?

Why is it that government loves them more than they love us?

Why is it that money is more important than us?

Because we are ruled by monsters!

Is There An Electoral Way Out of This?

It is not uncommon to see someone write in a comment section that "there is no electoral way out of this!". I wonder if that is true. Certainly there is a part of me that believes that, however I am torn on this issue. Is Civil War the only option we have?

As I said in the broad front strategy elections are one area where we must fight, but not the only area. We need to fight on a number of different fronts. Elections being one of them. People rightly point out the difficulties, that we will be vilified, that demographics are moving against us and on and on the criticisms go. As I said they are right, but my question is what else are you doing to fight back?

If you are simply complaining then thats not enough, you and I need to be doing things to fight back. After all this problem is not going to fix itself. The problem with elections is two fold:

1. Candidates

2. Ideology

Currently most people who call themselves Conservatives are in reality Right-Liberals. They support Liberalism, but they want to implement it slowly. So simply voting for the approved Conservative candidate is not enough. Liberalism cannot defend you from Liberalism. So that means that the candidate is important. Support candidates and support the one furthest to the right, in each election. Don't vote for Liberalism if you can avoid it.

If we have people in Parliament then we can challenge Liberalism. We if have a small group in Parliament then we can seriously start to set an agenda.

Just think how things would be if we controlled the government!

If we we the government and we controlled Parliament by one vote then we could stop things from getting worse and we could put forward our plans for the future. Change the language.

If we controlled a large majority we could start to reversed Liberalism and put in place a Traditionalist agenda.

But to do any of that we need to start with candidates. Find a candidate to support or become a candidate. Fighting is the only option we have.

How Socialism Helped Destroy Marriage

Why Were Generation X Men Lied To About Women?

When I growing up I was told that women wanted nice guys, everyone told the same story. If you were nice women would be attracted to you. The media pushed the idea of the snag, the sensitive new age guy. A man who was sensitive, basically a man who was understanding like a womens girlfriend but who she could have sex with. However what the men of my generation found out was that women despise nice guys. The old saying was true, nice guys do finish last, that if a women told you that you were sweet, what that really meant was that she would never have sex with you.

Which is an important point to this whole story because Generation X came of age after the sexual revolution. The promise of which was that sex was available just for the asking. We saw in real life that people could get together without marriage, that parents could have new partners and no one said it was wrong. Quite the opposite, on TV and in the movies the idea that the old outdated rules were over and that new unlimited sex was now available was very common. While pornography wasn't as common as today, we knew that it existed and that it was legal. Since 1970 adultery in entertainment has been portrayed as a breaking of the chains of marriage, the ending of an outdated taboo and as a liberating experience. Non of that was true for those who grew up before 1970.

The rules had changed and people knew that they had but at one and the same time they thought that nothing had changed. People were still people, men were still men and women were still women, they still wanted and desired one another just as they always had. Which is true and not true. Something that I have found amazing was how little people thought about women and how they think. Women were openly regarded as a mystery, a riddle wrapped in an enigma. The feminine mystique was a very popular idea, that women were capricious, illogical and unfathomable. That this mystery made women more attractive, more alluring. A common saying was that it was a womens prerogative to change her mind. To put thought into what made women tick was to take her from her pedestal and to think of her as just a machine or problem. The idea was romantic, but for the males of Generation X it was to lead to much heartache.

This meant that as we became attracted to women and sort to establish relationships with them we often met with failure. When we sort to satisfy our lust, as we had been lead to believe was our birthright, we found that women wanted relationships. However when we sort a relationship we found that women could be as shallow as any man. What had changed? Why did neither the old ways or the new ways work?

Because in the past women only had a small number of options, which was also true for men. In the case of both the best option was nearly always to get married and to become a family. And for the vast majority of men and women that was what they did and for most it was a good life. But as women were provided with more options that was no longer true. Women kept the demands that they had always had, that a man provide, that he love her, etc. and built upon that more demands. Women were told an even bigger lie then men, they were told that in the past they had no options and that now they had unlimited options...neither of which were true. That there was no time limit on their options, motherhood could be delayed without cost, that they could live their lives without men if they wanted, that they should never settle for second best, that only the perfect man was good enough for them. Women are still told these ugly lies.

The older generations thought that the desire for love and sex would push men and women together just as it always had. But when sex with numerous partners is without judgement then there is no real world reason to settle down. And love can sadly be faked. It was not that women no longer wanted to be loved, or to marry or to have children. But to do that you need to pick an option and stick to it and you also need to pick the correct option. Single motherhood is not the best option, divorce is not the best option. Until we remove these options the lies just go on and on.

The society that we live in is simply unsustainable!

Protect the Innocent, Not the Guilty

A few hours ago I had a confrontation on Facebook on the topic of legalising drugs. Over the past few weeks I have been engaged in another dispute, again on Facebook, regarding Euthanasia. But both are related in my mind because the real question in both is how do you protect the innocent?

The argument put forward, a very Liberal argument, is that no one should be able to tell me what to do with my life!

The thing that many find hard to understand is that these issues do not only affect you, they affect others as well. They affect people who may not have the experience, the will or the strength to resist. It's not good enough to say that these people are weak and that they deserve whatever happens to them. It is our duty to protect the innocent, yes even the weak innocent. Liberalism wants us all to be individuals with no loyalty to each other and no duty of care. But we do have a duty.

In both of these discussions the idea has been pushed that to deny people the use of drugs or the ability to die when they want is immoral, that I am immoral for opposing these things. It shows how perverse our society has become that they think these are good arguments. You could make a good argument that informed people should have options. That in controlled circumstances people should be able to use drugs. That in controlled circumstances people should be able to end their life. The question I have is how do you keep it restricted?

I know the answer, the answer is that there is no way to keep it restricted. Medical marijuana is the gateway drug to heroin being legally sold. Allowing people with terminal illness to kill themselves is the start of ending life for any reason you like. I have seen peoples life destroyed by drugs but I have never seen it uplifted by drug use. People are being told that their life has no value, it is an evil message.

One thing that I find over and over again is the inability to think though the consequences of an action. That ideas, action and even inaction has consequences and that many things can be predicted by using logic. Medical marijuana will lead to legalising marijuana, which will lead to a softening of enforcement of harder drugs, which will lead to a de facto legalisation, which leads to the legalising of hard drugs. It is entirely logic, but people like to pretend that they are the masters, that they get to choose how far something goes, but history shows that that is not true. Each new generation starts off further down the line, thinking that this thing which is bad is normal, after all it has been a part of their life for as long as they can remember.

Until we can protect the innocent non of these things should be allowed and as it is not possible to protect the innocent non of them should be allowed.
