Making A Eunuch Out Of Your Daughter

I realise that some nowadays do it literally, but I'd like to talk about a more garden variety, that is putting your daughter on the pill. Around a certain age (mostly 15) many girls suddenly develop "cycle problems". Of course, I'm quite aware that it does happen, yet for thousands of years and even until quite recently, most women managed to somehow survive without the need of taking the synthetic hormones, which they aren't apparently able to do now.

Let's be honest, we all know the real reason for this. It's so much easier to medicate your child instead of raising her properly. Some girls will become very promiscuous as a result (yet the parents forget that the miracle drug doesn't protect against STDs), while others will turn into obsessed career women. Here is one testimony from a site dedicated to helping women quit hormonal contraception:

I turned into a different person. I went from planning baby names and teaching Sunday School to being extremely focussed on academics, running every club in the school, and became an atheist. I was well on the careerist path by the time I was 16-17. I went to university, all the while still on the pill, and graduated and actually landed a career doing deals between big pharma companies.
(Read the full story here)

I'm quite convinced that the pill is one of the vehicles which makes modern "liberated" society possible. It's one of the reasons so many young women seem to totally lack maternal instinct, or that they often use their younger years "to play around", the way only men used to do. Sometimes they hook up with total losers just for fun and then the pill fails them  (or they forget to take it or they were too drunk to begin with) and they still end up a single mother or find their way to an abortion clinic.

I understand not everyone is Christian. Stuff happens. Sometimes people can be married and have a perfectly legit reason to avoid having (more) kids. I have never subscribed to the "quiverfull" mentality. Yet, there are other methods besides poisoning yourself with synthetic hormones, because that's exactly what women are doing.

The site I quoted from has an overview of other anticonception methods. Here I noticed an interesting thing. For instance, they state that FAM (fertility awareness method) could be 99% effective when used correctly and yet the official website of the American Pregnancy Association says it has 25% failure rate.

The same is true about "withdrawal method". The AP association states it has 22% failure rate, while the other side cites studies showing that withdrawal could be 96% effective when used correctly. Could there be an agenda at work here? Now if you do a search on "when a woman should stop using oral contraception" they will tell you at 50!

Yes, you heard it correct. While all women are supposedly infertile after the age 40 and need expensive medical procedures if they still desire to get pregnant, they still need to use the Pill until 50. No, it's not all contradictory. Stop noticing right now. I mean it's a pretty lucrative market, if every female aged 15-50 needs to take your product (nearly) every freaking day of her life unless she's trying to get pregnant (since most couples only want 2 kids and many younger women get pregnant quite easily you'll only lose several years income at most).

Yet the Pill has many proven side effects including suicide attempts. Here is one young woman's testimony about how the Pill messed up her health (btw, I highly recommend her YouTube channel). Most medication has side effects, even something as simple as synthetic vitamins, let alone stuff which so drastically impacts your reproductive system.

Again, Catholics appear to have been right on this one, too. And for all the  "traditionalists" out there, instead of writing how everything in the world is the fault of the women, may be take a better look at the woke corporations and government officials in bed with them?

It Was Great While It Lasted

I could have easily stayed there for a month, but...

We still enjoyed our short vacation, and in 3 weeks we are going on a real one abroad. Valkenburg was FULL, crowds everywhere:

We could hardly find a place to eat, and had to sit inside.

This is close to our hotel, beautiful neighbourhood, isn't it?

And we visited a French-style chateau by Maastricht as well:

a kitchen garden

The hills on the other side is Belgium

The park was closed was visitors, unfortunately.

Inside is a hotel:

They kindly allowed us to use their bathroom so we took the chance:)

The kitchen garden once again

And the park

May be in autumn we can spend a couple more days over there...

A Disordered Mind Creates A Disordered Society

An interesting article about Plato's critique of democracy as it applies to the present day situation in the USA:

By “democracy” what Plato has in mind is a libertarian and egalitarian society in which “every individual is free to do as he likes.” Bourgeois restraints on appetite disappear, so that desires are checked only by competing desires rather than by reason, spirit, or even the oligarch’s middle-class stolidity....

Democracy on Plato’s account is characterized by the “diversity of its characters” and “treats all men as equal, whether they are equal or not.” In particular, it treats all ways of life as equal, no matter how puerile, irrational, or immoral.
The young “throw off all inhibitions” and celebrate “insolence, license, extravagance, and shamelessness...” 

Sounds rather familiar, doesn't it?

In general, the young set themselves against their elders, while elders fear being thought “disagreeable or strict” and are reduced to pathetically “aping the young and mixing with them on terms of easy fellowship.” The teacher “fears and panders to his pupils” but the pupils despise him anyway. Democratic man insists on “complete equality and liberty in the relations between the sexes,” and on drawing “no distinction between alien and citizen and foreigner.” Plato tells us that license is extended even to domestic animals, who freely roam the streets of the democratic city.

The man must have looked into a crystal ball, lol! I mean how could he otherwise have predicted the phenomenon of "dog's moms???"

...egalitarian societies...are dominated not by reason, not by spirit, not even by the more governable appetites of the oligarch, but by the lower and unruly appetites for sex, food, drink, and sensual pleasure in general, which are most prone to blinding reason. The very idea of a natural order of things that determines that some desires are disordered and forbidden by reason becomes hateful to democratic man.

S8x, drugs and rock-n-roll anyone?

Plato warns that art and music characterized by “ugliness of form and bad rhythm and disharmony,” and a popular culture that glorifies “bad character, ill-discipline, meanness, or ugliness,” do “cumulative psychological damage,” corrupting moral sensibilities and capacity for rational argument.

 Wow, he did predict it, too, together with the modern movies and TV shows!

The culture of a healthy society must accordingly celebrate reason, beauty, goodness, and restraint.

I had to take philosophy classes at the Uni and yet never learned all this. Now I wonder why?

A Short Personal Note

I've had it very busy so far. The vacations have started and we booked a weekend away, then my mother-in-law was suddenly taken to hospital, and it's in another city, too, so takes time visiting (please pray for her quick recovery!) That's why I didn't have  time to write a proper post (but will do next week).

So I'm leaving you all with an interesting docu (unfortunately on YouTube, lol!)

See you later!

Leaving Your Smartphone Behind

Here is a fascinating story of one guy who decided to live without modern technology. He grows his own vegetables and does his washing in a tub. A funny thing is that he used to be a militant vegan (aren't they all?) but the reality of living off the land made him an omnivore:

My relationship to food, and thus the world around me, has changed dramatically. When I lived without money, I was an animal rights activist, and strictly vegan for over a decade. These days I live from the landscape around me. Most dinners consist of the pike or trout I catch, the greens or berries I forage, the potatoes and vegetables and salads I grow, and any roadkill – mostly deer, pheasant, or pigeon – that I come across.

What he describes is probably the healthiest diet there is. 
That change wasn’t easy. I love wildlife, and so I take life with the reluctance of one who needs to eat. But I harm more life in the soil from one morning’s gardening than I do in a year’s fishing. While I’m as opposed to cruelty as ever, I no longer have a problem with death. Death is life, and nothing exists without it.

It's not exactly a Christian sentiment, I guess, but he has understood something many liberal urban city dwellers forget. This side of paradise, sometimes you need to kill in order to survive. 

I also felt my previous, so-called vegan life wasn’t even vegan. Cars aren’t vegan. Phones aren’t vegan. Plastic isn’t vegan. Tubs of vitamins aren’t vegan. Protein bars, chickpeas, soya and hemp seeds – none of it is vegan, not really. It’s all the harvest of a political ideology that is causing the sixth mass extinction of species, one that is wiping out one habitat after the next and polluting the world around us, making the Earth uninhabitable for much of life – even ourselves. 

There are examples of healthy vegetarians around us,  one guy  even ran a marathon being a 101 years old, but all of them eat some animal products (mostly dairy, especially yogurt which proves that unless you are severely lactose intolerant, dairy is good for you), but a lifestyle which demands "tubs of vitamins" for a person to function properly, is simply artificial. 

I do think he's taking it too far, personally, but to each his own, I guess. We still can learn a lot from his story.

I’ve found that when you peel off the plastic that industrial civilization vacuum-packs around you, what remains couldn’t be simpler. Healthy food. Something to be enthusiastic about. Fresh air. A sense of belonging and aliveness. Good water. Purpose. Intimacy. A vital and deep connection to life. The kind of things I did without for too many years.

I think the most important lesson is that empty consumerism doesn't make anyone happy in the end, outside of woke corporations which use our money to destroy us. Reducing your level of consumption is an efficient manner to fight back. Many of these people hate you, think twice before giving them your hard-earned money...

The Tunnel 2019

A review. The Tunnel is a Norwegian movie which came out somewhere around the Christmas 2019, or at least, I think so because the events of it take place on the Christmas Eve. It's a disaster film with a more or less predictable story line, though we still enjoyed it.

The main character called Stein Berg is a widower with a teenage daughter Elisa. He works as a technician maintaining a 10 km mountain tunnel but apparently used to be a part of the rescue squad/fire brigade before his wife's death. Three years have passed since she died and he wants to move on and begins a relationship with a woman called Ingrid who is a waitress in a nearby road restaurant.

His daughter can't accept what she perceives as the betrayal of her mother, and when Stein suggests that they spend Christmas with the three of them, she runs away and unbeknownst to him, takes a bus to Oslo to spend the holidays with her Granny.She has to go through the same tunnel she visited so many times with her father. Little does she know that in a couple of minutes a horrible accident will happen.

One of the trucks which carries petrol will crush against the wall and explode. While the tunnel is being filled with smoke and people around are panicking and losing their minds, the specialised fire brigade is delayed by an avalanche and the rescue squad coming from the opposite side isn't allowed to enter without them. But when Stein (who was called up by his former boss as the best of his team) hears that Elisa is inside, nothing can stop him...

Another plot twist deals with a couple and their two daughters who are going home for Christmas and are stuck in the same tunnel and several other minor characters.

The movie is a typical European drama, and is quite different from an average Hollywood production. It doesn't have superheroes, and in some aspects is more like a documentary than an action flick, with the result that it's much more realistic and believable. It does have some liberalism in it (I hardly expected otherwise) but it's not overtly obnoxious. The rescue brigade consists of all men, btw.

It touches upon the modern destruction of the family and loneliness it brings, and praises self-sacrifice, courage, and women standing by their men. The bonus point is some beautiful views of Norway. Would recommend to anyone.

Here is the trailer.

History Of Swords

Since YouTube is continuing its campaign of silencing dissident voices, including those of Christians, I'm going to promote more BitChute videos on my blog. This one is very interesting:

As their format is slightly different, you may want to watch it on Bitchute. Here is the link.

Were Catholics Right About S*x?

A rather old, but still interesting article which probably wouldn't be published today:

Barry and Bonnie Hewlett had been studying the Aka and Ngandu people of central Africa for many years before they began to specifically study the groups' sexuality...

What the Aka and Ngandu have in common, besides geography, is this: In both cultures, men and women view sexual intercourse as a kind of "work of the night." The purpose of this work is the production of children -- a critical matter in an area with a very high infant mortality rate...

Is the strong cultural focus on sex as a reproductive tool the reason masturbation and homosexual practices seem to be virtually unknown among the Aka and Ngandu? That isn't clear. But the Hewletts did find that their informants -- whom they knew well from years of field work -- "were not aware of these practices, did not have terms for them," and, in the case of the Aka, had a hard time even understanding about what the researchers were asking...
