Global Warming Or Global Cooling?

Even as we are experiencing a heat wave I stumbled upon this video:

I tend to be skeptical of both since in my experience the temperatures have the way of balancing themselves so that the yearly averages hardly ever change. Still it's interesting to hear the opposite point of view, which is generally absent from the MSM.

DIY Dishwashing Detergent

I made it today. Here is the recipe. Mine didn't turn out so thick even though I have cooked it for about 15 minutes. It withstood the first trial rather well, though.

The Elvenking

The Elvenking by J.W. Goethe is probably one of the creepiest stories of Western literature. I remembered it while driving through a German forest at night, high in the mountains:)

There has been some discussion in comments whether the King of Elves only symbolises Death or there is a darker meaning. Personally I believe there is, considering that the author created his own version of an old Nordic legend which told the story of a mortal man tempted by an elf-maid who stabs him when he refuses her sexual advances,  but you can read the poem for yourself and then decide.

It's amazing how J.R.R. Tolkien managed to turn elves into positive characters, isn't it now?

Western Men And Equality

While reading a discussion on immigration on one of our more or less right-wing sites yesterday I stumbled upon the following comment: "Only Western men believe in equality." The guy who wrote it, obviously proud of the fact, expressed in one short sentence what I have been trying to demonstrate on this blog for years.

It's true that currently equality is the Western Man's religion and that all our social and other policies are based on it. Since men and women and various ethnic and other groups are considered equal, any disparity in life choices and their outcomes must obviously be the result of the discrimination which needs to be addressed by the government.

Though the site in question (mildly) criticises feminism, I've read discussions where men sincerely wondered why women chose "soft" professions instead of joining the army or having a high-powered career in the business world. They thought that something was wrong with those women, they were apparently lazy and failed to profit from the new wonderful opportunities open to them.

I see this sentiment echoed on American blogs where guys wonder why women aren't interested in automatic weapons and choose early child development instead of STEM in college. And that's a huge elephant in the room a lot of "manospherians" simply fail to see as they rant and rave demanding that women (!) put an end to feminism.

Men are guardians of society, not women. Men are active, women are reactive. If the change happens, it's because men enable it. Western men appear in general to be fine with feminism, they just want a more Playboy version of it, I guess.
