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
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.

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...
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...

Vaccine Passports Cause Hate
Vaccine Passports Cause Hate: Segregation & the COVID Regime by Asa BoxerLegally speaking (in Canada at least), hate speech is a public utterance, publication or symbolic representation that promotes the vilification and detestation of an identifiable group.

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...

"If persons acted on the advice of the social critic in the way predicted by her/him that would tend to confirm the theory. However, if they didn't, then what? The worst-case scenario, envisaged by Marcuse, is a society in which persons feel perfectly satisfied with their shallow lives. They are not aware of any unfulfilled desires, and are likely to resists the "enlightenment" proffered by the critical theorist. How can they be convinced that cultivation of intellect, moral autonomy, and...
The Great COVID Domestic Violence fundraiser
Now for a jaw dropping story that will leave you marveling at the brilliance of the feminist enterprise. I’m talking about extraordinary success of last year’s pandemic fundraiser – the mighty domestic violence scare campaign built around COVID lockdowns.

Vaccine Mandate On Airplanes Unsupported, Absurd

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.

A Question on Dr. Jordan Peterson's Writing Guide
This question stemmed from the concern that Dr. Jordan Peterson's writing guide (link here) would be far too time consuming. He suggests that we edit the sentences before rearranging and deleting them ("Essay Writing Guide", 17-19). I believe the reason for this is it is necessary to choose the right words before rearranging the sentences, since "the sentence itself presents a thought" ("Essay Writing Guide", 6), and the thoughts must be organized before they can be rearranged.

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

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...
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...

A Manifesto for the Based

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...

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...
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

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.

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 Woke Make Biden’s “Moderation” Irrelevant
"We have to do everything in our power to hold Joe Biden and Kamala Harris accountable in protecting the Constitution from Critical Race Theory." -James LindsayThe Woke Make Biden's "Moderation" IrrelevantThere is very little to suggest to me that the Biden administration that we have presumably elected to the highest office in the land and as the leadership of the free world for at least the next four years is prepared to safeguard its people on this issue.newdiscourses.com
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...

The Threat of Totalitarianism
Friends, I fear that as our culture lurches away from the authority of the good and falls toward the supremacy of the individual will, we put ourselves in a rather parlous condition. The door opens for totalitarianism when we no longer make distinctions between truth and falsity.
20210915: Reflecting On Reflection
Reflection (also called self-reflection) is a human process of witnessing and evaluating our own cognitive, behavioral, and emotional processes; it is meta-cognition (thinking about our own thinking) and is sometimes called introspection. The concept is very old and well recorded from "know thyself", an ancient maxim by the Delphic oracle, Pythia, over 3,000 years ago to Descartes' "cogito ergo sum" (I think therefore I am), to the "rational animal" (self-consciousness) of Kant. ...

I watch in bewilderment when I see educated people pledge allegiance to the Left and the insanity for which it stands. I see decent, law abiding people putting the Democratic Party ahead of their own country. Reality, which can clearly be seen by any normal person, is seen as something totally different by some. 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...

More Evidence COVID is Smart
Incredibly, the COVID virus can count. It knows the difference between 99 and 100. It switches off and becomes incommunicable in companies of 99 employees or less. It switches on and threatens the safety of everyone everywhere when one employee is added.COVID is smart enough to know the reverse too -- fire the 100th employee to make it 99 and immediately there's no need for the previously applied preventative action or a safety alarm, despite the fact we're in the worst pandemic in the...

We complied.Next, terrorism was the reason to create yet another domestic law enforcement agency, the TSA, which humiliated us with invasive searches of completely...
Troubleshooting tools for life: humility+...
Humility is my favorite virtue, because it is so fundamental to developing any other virtue, but it's really difficult to practice. It's also easy to misinterpret what it should look like in practice because our human perception of reality is so limited. Matthew 7:3-5 3 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank...
20210919: Aging
Aging (or ageing), in humans is a biological process of us getting older over time. Although it can be applied to any stage growing into the next stage, I'm specifically talking about the changes that occur when we move from middle-age (middle adult) to senior citizens (old adult). It seems that we are "programmed" to decline in physical and mental ability until we die. Does this have something to do with the preservation of the species (via sexual reproduction)? The Bible tells us that...
Why Jordan Peterson Is Worth Defending
Cultural upheavals have been known to swell and crash like waves. Although their popularity may rise and fall with the times, the underlying conditions that allowed them to flourish (and their ripple effects in society) run deeper than undulating political trends. Examining why certain ideas gain momentum at a given historical moment is crucial in mapping our present course; otherwise, the ocean of our collective unconscious remains an uncharted and treacherous mystery. Jordan B. Peterson...
How do you break up a social network?
I heard a fairly prominent libertarian say that the case for anti-trust being used against the big social networks is better than any anti-trust case ever seen before.I’m not an expert anti-trust by any stretch. I know enough to know that the case against Standard Oil was nonsense, but let's use it as an example. When you break up a company like that, which actually has assets like oil refineries, the process kind of makes sense to me. You divide up the refineries and make lots of little...

Much as in the rest of the western world, discussion about racism abound in Sweden.So far, it is mostly along the lines of the discussion in the US around 2000s.

In Sweden,...

I feel that this...

Reading that the halo effect is a real phenomenon that affects most people makes a lot of sense. A first impression is powerful and it can be difficult to see the good parts of those I don’t like. I do think it is important to use my system 2 to short circuit the halo effect so I can see people for who they truly are, good or bad. It was interesting to learn that aggregating a statistically significant number of independent opinions can provide very accurate results at the average. Maybe...
Social Media Censorship
I think it's both ridiculous and dangerous for social media platforms to choose what is allowed to say or what isn't. People can't even joke around anymore without being banned from platforms like Facebook. We are going in the wrong direction and we're losing our ability to express our "wrong" opinions - which may be entirely true, aside from being unpopular.
