Are you noticing Jordan Peterson’s influence...
With nearly all of the influencers I listen to, there seems to be an increasing integration of Jordan Peterson's (certainly not exclusively his ideas), but certainly the most recently listened to voice of these ideas and narratives. I am increasingly reading and hearing the Petersonisms in the thought leaders commentary and postings. I’d love to see other examples you have seen. Has to be encouraging to Dr Peterson. An example in “Mark Sisson’s Daily Apple posts”Happy Sunday.We live...
Feminists throw children under the bus
There’s no end to the dreadful chicanery being used to prop up the feminist narrative of virtuous women and villainous men, as we have seen in two recent examples, one from the UK and the other Australia. It is astonishing how hard the ideologues work to deny that essential truth about human nature – that neither gender has a monopoly on vice nor virtue.Last month an Australian social issues journal published the most fascinating research - Allegations of child sexual abuse – which showed...
2+2 Never Equals 5
"Occasionally in the course of human events it becomes necessary to have to explain something no one would ever have expected to have to defend." -James Lindsay2+2 Never Equals 5“Freedom is the freedom to say that 2+2=4. If that is granted, all else follows” -George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-fournewdiscourses.com
Innocent male student targeted over rape claim
Kristin Hosking is used to a tough life. She and her husband Phil run a sheep farm near Tamworth in Northeast NSW. They have coped with drought. “We had to hand-feed our stock and watch them die. But we pulled together and got on with it. That’s just nature, you can understand that,” said Kristin. Next came the bushfires. “What was left of our feed was lost in the fires, along with fencing and hundreds of acres.” That too, the family just dealt with, with their sons spending months fighting...
Facing Death
"Think of yourself as dead. You have lived your life. Now take what's left and live it properly." - Marcus AureliusI often find myself reflecting on this very notion. If I were to die today, what legacy would I leave behind? This is a daunting question and often leaves me feeling grateful I have more time. But, time is finite. It is our limitation that makes us beautiful in spite of that curse. One day we must each of us face this question and answer it. One way or another, everyone's time is...
Learning How To Think - The education of the...
The classical liberal arts education has been slowly degrading as the curriculum has been filtered through the lens of modernity. In the liberal arts, people are meant to learn how to think. They are led on a path to build a foundational knowledge of the arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences so they may participate in what “Robert Maynard Hutchins” referred to as “The Great Conversation.”The classical liberal arts education entails having studied a series of books from “The...
Why I renewed my Thinkspot subscription
For the last few days I've been receiving emails requesting me to update my credit card information to pay for another year of thinkspot gold subscription tier.Today I decided to do just that. Some CritiqueCertainly many things can become better here. I wish there more free books, I'd love a more interactive access to them.

The Emotional Substructure of Self-Consciousness
I think one of the greatest yearnings of a person is to have someone else occupy their headspace, fully and genuinely, with the capacity to understand its complexity and irrepressible weight, and to be so overwhelmed by it that the will to judge seems absolutely unjustifiable.We want understanding and compassion from intimacy, and more and more these days we get precisely the opposite. It's the very thing that drives us to private terror: the fear that no such genuine intimacy exists, that...

An opinion from Nanook North of the Freemans Guild US. Posted on 2021-08-21 updated on 2021-08-29.

Self Made Soul
“The mind is its own place and in itself can make a heaven of hell and a hell of heaven” ~John Milton, Paradise Lost.All of your experiences have made you into who you are today and who you are tells a tale of what you have gone through.

Wokeness, manufactured relevance, and false...
Wokeness is an offshoot of what I describe as 'manufactured relevance'. It is often perfomed by individuals (in the loosest definition of the term) who reside within the boundaries of false meritocracy, and they create adversity because they have not properly confronted and overcame enough of it to become properly socialized within the hierarchy of competence that is present in life. They dislike their placement in the hierarchy, are envious of others that have better positioning and...
Vaccine Mandate On Airplanes Unsupported, Absurd
On August 13, 2021, amid a flurry of chatter surrounding the announcement of a snap federal election in Canada, an important announcement by the Minister of Transport Omar Alghabra regarding a vaccine mandate for air travel was made. The minister announced that “certain travellers” would be required to be vaccinated in order to board an airplane in Canada, the assumption being that children ineligible to vaccination would be exempt. This proposal is illogical, contrary to all available...
Mondays of Meaning- August 30th, 2021
Hello,In this week's edition, we'll be discussing hierarchy, whether property is theft, and the development of aggressive children.On Hierarchy and the Reduction of Complexity in the WorldThe world is, for all intents and purposes, infinitely complex. Even if there isn’t a truly infinite number of things, phenomena and facts, there is a sufficient infinity of combinations of things, categories of things, potential and real. This complexity has to be reduced to a level that is manageable at...
We Have To Fight Beyond The Internet.
Blogs, videos, and social media sites have been extremely important in our efforts to educate people and warn them about the fake pandemic, the dangers of face masks and gene therapy jabs, and the ongoing assault on humanity by the lying psychopaths who want to control and enslave us. Despite all the censorship, the internet has been amazingly effective because everyone can jump in and do something to push back against our oppressors. There have been too many of us to silence, and we're...
The Global Experience: Propaganda at the speed...
Edward Bernays says in his book Propaganda that America is controlled by an unelected invisible government. This government influences and controls everything thing in our lives. The lathe used to shape are choices is propaganda. Bernsys is using the word in its true form which is simply information given to the public to influence decisions. Propaganda could be used to lie to people or convince people to buy chicken sandwiches. (On a side note this is one unique thing about America. The most...
The Convergence Of Chaos… Can You Feel It?
Dear Friends,It seems to me, when I go out lately, I have noticed a tension in the air, it didn’t use to be there, but it is almost palpable today. I think this tension is a result of the convergence of chaos that has engulfed us. Two years ago, 2019, everything was great. “Our future was so bright we had to wear shades.” Then came the Wuhan flu, that, as it turns out, you and I paid to create. Governments across the planet have exploited the fear, generated by the CCPandemic, imposing extra...

We must work to diminish the fervour of our beliefs, especially at present our beliefs in infallible systems. Science earned our trust because it promised no canon, no clergy of authority, no lockdown on the evolution of our understanding. Now science has taken the definite article and is crowned The Science, for there is no other. One might rightly observe that such a science is corrupt because it has betrayed its founding principles. What this betrayal teaches us is that we must learn how...
Mercy, Humanity and Yeonmi Park's Story
Dear Friends,It seems to me, by the one merciful act of an evil man, the world has been given untold blessings. An act that was done to honor a commitment to a slave, someone without power, a voice or even agency. By doing so, and reuniting the family of a little girl, he had raped and was his slave, the world has got to know a great mind. The story is compelling and touching as well as horrifying and atrocious, but in the end… it is a story of redemption, kindness and enlightenment. If a...

New Book: “Light from Light”
Friends, I am happy to announce the release of my newest book, “Light from Light,” the companion to my new film series, “The Creed” https://creed.wordonfire.org.In recent decades, antipathy toward religious belief in general, and Christianity in particular, has been on the rise, with over a quarter of Americans now identifying as religiously unaffiliated.

New Book: "A Journey with Jonah"
Friends, I am thrilled to share with you a brand-new book from the Word on Fire Institute: https://books.wordonfire.org/jonah.Jonah is the only ancient prophet with whom Jesus identifies in the Gospels. But when we turn to read the book of Jonah itself, we discover that this so-called “book” is only two pages long—and that Jonah’s prophesying is limited to one short sentence. And yet, around this small book, as if it were around Jonah’s own troubled ship, high waves of controversy and mystery...

I watch in bewilderment when I see educated people pledge allegiance to the Left and the insanity for which it stands.

How can that be? How can scientific advice from one set of researchers be considered the truth but scientific advice from another set of equally talented researchers be dismissed as...

They are not aware of any unfulfilled desires, and are likely to resists the "enlightenment" proffered by the critical theorist.

The term "perseverance of the saints" (the "P" in TULIP of Calvinism) is also called "once saved, always saved" and has to do with the idea that if God begins a work in you (making you one of the "elect"), via the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, then he will see it to fruition; there is no doubt. The gospel song "We Shall Overcome" or "We Will Overcome" became a civil-rights anthem and is lyrically a description of perseverance.The Integrated Man Video Podcast Archives

My Mom guilt is in overdrive this morning. On the way to take kids to school this morning, my teenager reminded me that I STILL haven't taken her to get her learner's permit. The tears started flowing. I was already feeling guilty this morning and that was the breaking point of feeling like a failure as a Mom. Here's the deal. I have a major dilemma right now. I have an almost two year old. I decided early in the summer that, when the kids went back to school in the fall, I was going to put...

20210905: Determination, Perseverance, And......
A "follow-through" is the completion of the movement of hitting or throwing a ball (or frisbee or similar). But, there's a little bit more to it: the follow-through implies that your movement (shape or arc, speed, etc.) stays consistent through and beyond the stroke so that there is no hiccup or "jump" at the end that ruins the flight and direction the ball takes. The concept can be applied to any action you take to reach a goal. Determination helps you make the decision to reach for a...

Only a fool would sacrifice themselves for those who look down upon them, insult them, and treat them as sub-human sacrificial beasts. Such arrogance and entitlement will always be met with disregard. Rightly so.Some Americans No Longer Believe in the Common GoodThey now are thinking only of themselves.www.theatlantic.com
Racism Redefined By Maoist Revolutionaries
From the desk of the Freemans Guild US, an opinion article by Nanook North was published on 2021/09/06.I thought Labor day was a good day to contrast the unrealistic Marxist or Maoist redistributive Socialist utopian dream against the simple well proven truth of the American Constitution. One must be dubious when reading an admitted Progressives diatribe to explain away another failed Progressive. They are quite good at it cause for the last 300 years, their leaders and systems have...

Harvard University Jumps the Shark
Friends, I have no quarrel with a university chaplaincy reaching out to seekers and nonbelievers. But I do have a problem with the religious leadership at Harvard University electing someone who does not believe in God precisely as chaplain. If you don’t believe in God, then you’re not a chaplain.Read my article for the New York Post here: Catholic bishop: Harvard jumped the shark with atheist ‘chaplain’Word has just come down the line that Harvard University has elected its first-ever...

20210907: Follow-Through As Integrity
My father used to say: "If you make a decision and start an action, follow through with it." Other people are making decisions/actions based on yours, this creates in you a level of responsibility. Be a man of your word, be responsible - follow through; which means: have integrity.The Integrated Man Video Podcast Archives

The human proclivity to resist subtractive...
To me, our system of government (USA) was set up to promote genuine meritocracy, as opposed to the false meritocracy that almost all politicians reside within, and it is entirely bipartisan. This is precisely why 'they' are constantly manufacturing their relevance for the public eye to witness. They, subconsciously or consciously, know that they are ineffective and therefore irrelevant in regards to their purpose for being elected into office, they have been mired down in beurocracy and...
Do You Want To Know?
Dear Friends,It seems to me, for a kid to get to marriage today, is next to impossible. If they make it out of the womb without being dismembered, they are manipulated by the schools into self sterilization. Little girls getting their wombs ripped out and little boys manipulated into welcoming chemical castration. If they make it past those cultural hurdles, they face a drug epidemic, supplied with unlimited opiates by the CIA itself. We lose 60,000 to 70,000 kids a year to that little trick....

20210908: Abandon, Skimp
The opposite of following-through on your task is to abandon it; or at best skimp on the work at the end. Abandoning or skimping on the task, especially if others are relying on you to keep your word (to get the task done) lacks integrity; it is unethical and maybe even immoral.

20210909: Follow-Through Can Be Cathartic

Religion had a positive effect during lockdown
The benefits of religion to mental health are well documented and its positive impact during the pandemic has been confirmed by a number of recent studies.Covid-19 has had a profound effect on our lives.

20210912: Review, Follow-up, Reflection,...
Our decisions and actions, as we pursue a goal, can have all kinds of outcomes: wildly successful, so-so, disastrous (even loss-of-life). Oftentimes, these call for further inquiry, for example the NASA Review Boards after the tragic events of Apollo 1, Apollo 13, Challenger, and Columbia. Other times, it might just be a good idea to take a moment and reflect on even the successes. Whatever we call them - review, follow-up, after-action reporting or root-cause analysis, reflection - they...

20210913: The Five Whys
Root-cause analysis is a method of reviewing an event (usually disastrous) to try to figure out why it happened so as to prevent it from happening again. One method is the Five Whys where you ask why did this happen, the answer then becomes the next "why" question until you have a definitive answer on how to prevent this in the future. Why did the plane crash? A failure of the hydraulic system resulted in total loss of flight control. Why did the hydraulic system fail? A ball-bearing in...

The Most Dangerous Place To Be
If signs and their referents have truly merged into a depthless "hyper-reality," then a statue is not merely a symbol of a tyrant, but actually identical with tyranny. In that case, the pulling down of statues really is an act of revolutionary heroism. The young iconoclasts at work today are obviously convinced of that.The Most Dangerous Place To BeMost of the young people currently demolishing America’s statues were born too late to have picked up the habit from watching the attacks on...
20210914: Review; Then What?
Any type of review (for example, a Review Board that investigates an accident or other disastrous result), usually ends with a description of why the event happened (root-cause analysis) and then suggestion(s) on how to prevent it from happening again. Typically the board or committee, in and of themselves, doesn't have the authority to enforce the suggestions. It then falls on management, owners, or even governing bodies to institute the changes. The implication is obvious: we told you...
