The Three Versions Of A Conflict

When an individual or a group is in conflict or in crisis with another, their subjective nature makes their perceptions of this conflict or crisis different (sometimes drastically). There is the perception of the one who perceives it (rightly or wrongly) as a victim. And there is that of the one who is responsible for it, and who thinks of it or, on the contrary, denies it. These different perspectives depend on the limited human senses (and subject to illusions, even hallucinations), psychological filters (religious, cultural, educational, social …) and the point of view or momentary positions adopted in relation to the circumstances or to the scene of conflict or crisis. If the protagonists are brought to testify, directly in front of a court or indirectly before history, we will have the version of the real or supposed victim, and that of the other side. However, there is a third one. This is the one exposing the strict objective truth. It seems that it is never fully known, even after careful investigations by historians, journalists or detectives … And often, it is ignored. Whether historical, criminal or social events, treated respectively by historians, investigators such as detectives, or journalists, history…

This Is Everything That Is Wrong With Mainstream Feminism

This Is Everything That Is Wrong With Mainstream Feminism Author: Caitlin Johnstone Outlets like MSNBC and Politico have been excitedly running headlines titled “The military-industrial complex is now run by women” and “How women took over the military-industrial complex”. Apparently four of America’s five top defense contractors are now women, whose names I will not bother to learn or report on because I do not care. These headlines are being derided by skeptics of the establishment mindset for the cartoonish self-parody of the corporate liberal mindset that they so clearly are, and rightly so. Pretty much everything in American mainstream liberalism ultimately boils down to advancing mass murder, exploitation and ecocide for profit while waving a “yay diversity” banner so that the NPR crowd can feel good about themselves while signing off on it. But the fact that these stories exist and have an audience can also be blamed more specifically on the failures of mainstream feminism. A lot of men (and the occasional cultishly servile woman) like to bitch about the problem with modern feminism as though it is something that hurts men, threatens men, demonizes men, or robs men of their place in society or anything else they feel entitled to. This…

Effects Of Censorship

Censorship is an attack on the free flow of knowledge, information or opinion expressed in one form or another (written, verbal, visual ...). It represents a blockage of the transmission of mental energies between individuals. It can therefore be responsible for damages both for the issuer and for those who can no longer receive the issued knowledge, information or opinion. For the transmitter trying to spread knowledge, information or opinion, censorship can cause frustration, anger or other negative emotions. In the long term, it can lead to health problems if the sensory response is not sublimated or transcended by forgiveness for censors or acceptance of the limiting condition (which can be perceived constructively as a challenge). On the other hand, those who could or should have received the information obviously do not benefit from it. In extreme cases, censorship can endanger them or increase their vulnerability. This is particularly the case if they are not specifically informed, for example, of the arrival of a tsunami or a tropical storm. On a more occult or deeper plane, as every time an energy cannot flow freely, the nature or the spirit will look for a means of circumvention. And the more secure…

The End Of Political Parties

For elites who wish to be able to control the popular masses better and better, the best system is one that gives these masses the illusion of freedom, but actually offers the constraint. The latter is called “Democracy” which in theory means a form of government assumed by the people themselves, and therefore implies that the people are sovereign. In practice, the existence of political parties at the center of an electoral process is the main obstacle to the sovereignty of peoples. In all modern democracies, to have a reasonable chance of being elected, an individual must belong to a political party or at least have been propelled by it at some point in his political career. Making oneself known through the institutionalized and dominant media, especially television, is expensive and even very expensive. And only members of the elite and political parties can afford the costs of a campaign for an election. The common people are automatically excluded, at least for the main issues (presidential and parliamentary), because it is sometimes possible for Mr. or Mrs. Lambda to be elected mayor in a small village without being a “notable”, one of the richest inhabitants The existence of political parties…

The Three Filters of Socrates

Socrates is credited with the following anecdote, when one day someone came to find him to speak badly of one of his friends: – Do you know what I just learned about your friend? – A moment. Before you tell me more, I'd like you to pass the three-strainer test. – The three colanders?! – But yes, said Socrates. It's my way of analyzing what I have to say and what I am told. You'll understand … The first sieve is the truth. Have you checked if what you want to tell me is true? – No. I just heard about it … – Very well. So you do not know if it is the truth. – (…) – So let's go to the second strainer: what do you want to teach me about my friend, is it something good? – Oh no ! On the contrary. – So, Socrates continued, you want to tell me bad things about him and you're not sure they're true. – Uh … – Finally, and this is my third colander, is it useful to tell me what my friend would have done? – Useful, no, not really. – So, concludes Socrates, if what…

Long Live the Shoveling Snow!

In Quebec, shoveling snow is a normal practice for common people who are lucky or unfortunate enough to live in a house, even when they have a snowblower that is not out of order. This one is indeed not very effective to remove the snow from the stairs or narrow paths and even less the ice barrier left at the entrance of the alley by the snowplow used to evacuate the snow from the neighborhood streets. And the Quebec winter has the annoying tendency to last five or six months a year. Especially for an immigrant from a country with a generally warm climate, shoveling snow can seem "boring". The more he has been accustomed to comfort, material ease, lack of physical effort, life in a cocoon, the more his personality may tend to revolt against the nature of his host country. Yet, from another point of view, the Quebec winter is a blessing in modern times. Why, could we ask ourselves. Is lifting the snow and breaking the ice for long hours during multiple winter storms a blessing? Is not it rather painful and disgusting? The author himself is not a very enthusiastic human being when it comes to…

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn: “Men Have Forgotten God”

“Men Have Forgotten God” – The Templeton Addressby Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn More than half a century ago, while I was still a child, I recall hearing a number of older people offer the following explanation for the great disasters that had befallen Russia: Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened. Since then I have spent well-nigh fifty years working on the history of our Revolution; in the process I have read hundreds of books, collected hundreds of personal testimonies, and have already contributed eight volumes of my own toward the effort of clearing away the rubble left by that upheaval. But if I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible the main cause of the ruinous Revolution that swallowed up some sixty million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened. What is more, the events of the Russian Revolution can only be understood now, at the end of the century, against the background of what has since occurred in the rest of the world. What emerges here is a process of universal significance. And if I were called upon to identify briefly…

Feminism Is A Disease – And Masculinity Is The Cure

Author: Brandon Smith It seems these days like everyone and their genderfluid grandma has some “profound” insight into the minds and world of men. Men and masculinity are spoken of in the media with sharp tones of fear mixed with disdain, as if we are a dangerous aberrant genetic anomaly that needs to be studied under a special microscope that will protect the observer from being influenced by our vitriolic pheromones. The problem is, most of these “experts” on manhood are not men at all, or, their observations of male behavior are tainted with deep-seated resentments.  That is to say, they are hardly objective. I recently came across an article by The Atlantic titled 'Psychology Has A Healthier Approach To Building Healthier Men'. Written around the same time as the embarrassing failure of Gillette's “Toxic Masculinity” ad campaign, I assume The Atlantic like many other mainstream media outlets was privy to this coming propaganda push and is attempting to rally the leftist troops to defend an ideological partner in crime. YouTube itself has even been aiding Gillette by removing dislikes from the video's vote count, which just goes to show that YouTube (owned by Google) is not a business but a propaganda…

The Collapse of Materialistic Science

Modern science emerged approximately at the time of the French Revolution, more than two centuries ago. Since then, Humanity has embarked on a race for technological "progress" which is directly derived from it and which remains closely associated with it. A quick overview will determine whether the exponential scientific and technological progress has or has not improved human and global conditions. And if despite the time and the resources (especially financial) invested, the balance sheet remains rather unfavorable as much to human beings as to other living beings and as to the planet itself, maybe it will be necessary to consider the bankruptcy or the collapse of our eminently materialistic science, this to allow us to move on Modern science, more and more fragmented into heterogeneous disciplines and highly specialized fields, has moved away from a synthetic and holistic vision such as that practiced by ancient scholars. For the latter, the study of the stars was not necessarily separable from those of mathematics, earth, living beings and even philosophy. We have arrived at a paradoxical point where, for example, to study tiny particles smaller than atoms, we have not found anything better than to build gigantic particle accelerators several kilometers…

The Transcendental Treasury of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness

The Transcendental Treasury of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness  Author: Ann Gauger Girl with a Pearl Earring, by Johannes Vermeer , via Wikimedia Commons. If you want to cultivate a spirit of gratitude, I’d like to suggest that you spend some time in meditation on truth, beauty, and goodness. They each represent gifts to us, things that make life possible, intelligible, and worth living. They are such essential qualities that we call them transcendentals. They transcend our everyday knowledge and point toward a source that is at least capable of truth, beauty, and goodness.  Why do we value them?  They are the foundations on which a life worth living is built.They enable discovery, creation, and nurturing of others.They are not wishful thinking.They are transformative. They are indicators that the world is rich, purposeful, and meaningful.They are the product of a designer who knows truth, beauty, and goodness.  Truth, beauty, and goodness are abstract concepts that nonetheless correspond to our deepest desires. They are not likely to have evolved by a neo-Darwinian process. Rather, from neo-Darwinism I would expect an absence of beauty or a denial of it — an inability to appreciate it. The same for truth. What about goodness? If selflessness and generosity are taken…

Note on Religions & Atheism

Atheism and agnosticism, having in common that they do not concern themselves with a universal or transcendent creative principle, possibly come down to materialistic beliefs. Referring to the article "To Serve Humanity Or To Rely On The Will Of The Father?", These forms of belief are comparable to religions of an exclusively feminine nature. They plunge the individual into the material while removing any possibility of doing the opposite movement. However, extremist tendencies represent imbalances such that they are generally destructive in the more or less long-term and sometimes in the very short term. In this case, we can easily see in atheism and agnosticism the fundamental cause of the decline of the moral conscience and consequently of a growing social, cultural, political and civilization chaos. Whether these beliefs have been stimulated by Humanism probably does not change the results. Environmental destruction is among the most visible signs In popular consciousness (and sometimes unconsciousness), when we talk about the idea of ​​religion, we often expect the related notions of rituals, places of worship and high priests. However, materialism has its rituals: in particular, major sports and show business masses, and weekly purchases in shopping centers. It also has its places…

The Psychological Warfare Behind Economic Collapse

Brandon Smith The concept of using the economy as a weapon is not an alien one to most people. Generally, we understand the nature of feudalism and how various groups can be herded onto centralized plantations to be exploited for their labor. Some people see this as a consequence of “capitalism,” and others see it as an extension of socialism/communism. Sadly, many people wrongly assume that one is a solution to the other — meaning they think that crony capitalism is a solution to communist centralization or that communism is a solution to the corruption of crony capitalism. The reality is that this is just another false paradigm. What is most disturbing is that the majority of the public have no grasp whatsoever of the true solution to the problem of corrupt or totalitarian economies: free markets. Free markets have not existed within the global economy on a large scale for at least the past 100 years. The rise of central banking has eroded all vestiges of freedom in production and trade. Crony capitalism with its focus on corporate power and monopoly has nothing to do with free markets, despite the arguments of rather naive socialists who blame “free markets”…

Luciferianism: A Secular Look At A Destructive Globalist Belief System

Luciferianism: A Secular Look At A Destructive Globalist Belief System Author: Brandon Smith Over many years of investigating the mechanics of global events and the people behind them I have become perhaps a little obsessed with one particular subject – the source and motivations of evil. This fascination does not stem from a simple morbid curiosity, but a strategic need to understand an enemy. Much like an exterminator needs to understand the behavior of cockroaches to be effective, I seek to understand the behavior and nature of organized evil. One very important fact that must first be made clear in people's minds is that evil does indeed exist. Establishment propaganda has spent immense time, effort and capital attempting to condition society into believing that evil is nothing more than a social construct – an opinion. Evil is supposedly in the eye of the beholder; a product of religious conditioning. This is a falsehood. Just like concepts of beauty, concepts of evil are actually inherent in our psyches from birth. The “eye of the beholder” is irrelevant. Two particular areas of human psychology support this fact: First, as the work of Carl Jung (and by extension anthropologists like Joseph Campbell) exposed,…
