More Vacation Pictures. Germany Part 2

 Nature and free time park

This above is a European wild cat

The ancestor of European horses, sort of a prehistoric horse actually

One piglet escaped

The weather was hot all the time so we ate lots of ice cream:) The pic is from our side of the border though.

VD And Student Loans

 The thing is, Vox is very correct. Forgiving student debt is deflationary. Erasing a debt is literally removing money from the system (despite the money being fake and gay). This means that there is less to go around, and thus services and products require less of it to buy.

Read the rest over here.

Why Do We Have Feminism?

Simple: we have feminism because most White European men support it. Now many women support it too, but women mostly follow men in everything. 

Now to give you an example. I read about a right-wing Italian party poised to win the coming election. Its critics even suggest it's fascist. It is (or was) called "Brothers of Italy" and is led by a woman. She declares she is for traditional family and is a mother all the while vying for the highest political position in the country. She is against quotas but pro female equality. I mean how more traditional can you get?

This is a party which has popular support in a Catholic country. Of course, there are online antifeminist pockets where you can read that women shouldn't vote or be a president and  most/ all should be housewives instead. But it's not how the majority of the Western people think, and it's a fact. Yes, I understand the power of media, propaganda and laws but look at countries like Turkey. Their laws are secular, too, and in many ways similar to ours, with some exceptions. And yet, their culture and way of life are different. 

Their elites are often secular just like over here, but the people are still quite religious while here in the West many openly mock Christianity and Christians and we don't say anything because we are taught to always turn another cheek. I'm not talking about violence here, mind you. But if you wouldn't let someone insult your mother why do you keep silent when they insult your faith? 

Well, I guess many Western so-called men would let their mother be insulted, too and keep their peace. 

So you could go back and forth and blame globalists, bankers, lying media, others -ists etc etc but in the end, our society is the way it is because the majority are fine with that.

Scotland Starts The War On Period Poverty

 Boy am I glad the UK left the the EU. Unfortunately, Scotland plans to break off and rejoin. All the while, things are getting so bad over there that women (can we even use this word still) are apparently not able to afford a pack of sanitary pads without government subsidies. I understand inflation and stuff, but here the cheapest products used to cost about 50 cent and are like 1 euro now and you generally need 1 pack a month. Even a family with 4 teenage daughters still living at home could surely afford it?

Luckily, we do have brave female politicians ready to save women from horrible poverty which prevents them from buying tampons:

 The Bill was initially brought forward by Labour health spokeswoman Monica Lennon and passed in November 2020, and is intended to eliminate period poverty and help households under financial strain.

 It was unanimously approved by MSPs after winning the support of the Scottish Government and the other opposition parties in Holyrood and became law earlier this week. 

Now comes the fun part: different regions have to hire "period dignity officers" to distribute free sanitary products and the first officer hired is a man who wants to start an open discussion about periods and menopause. I mean which man wouldn't like it?

 Mr Grant told the Dundee Courier: 'I'm absolutely buzzing about it.

'It's definitely pioneering as Scotland is the first to do this.

'It's about making people aware of the availability of period products for anyone of any gender, whenever they need it.

'And it's important whatever we do is done with dignity, so people know that there's no judgement.'

Of course...

Dear British, can you keep Scotland, please, we have enough idiocy going around as it is!

Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire

 A review of sorts. This is actually the 1st of Potter books which I found really interesting. Probably because HP and his friends are getting older so there is some teenage/family drama added and also, because the story is more fast-paced and has more action and intrigue than the previous three. 

It starts with someone plotting an attempt on Harry's life and ends with the Dark Lord's return to power which sets up the stage for the upcoming war in the wizard world. Severus Snape is a somewhat more ambiguous character in this book as Harry learns that Professor Dumbledore has his own reasons for trusting him. 

Harry comes across as a real hero, he is noble, generous and courageous and he wins the magic championship even though he is the youngest contender. He fights a duel with Voldemort and not only escapes but also recovers the body of his friend with a great risk for his own life. The only girl contender comes up last, btw. 

 Of course, there is some liberalism in it, too, like discussing discrimination and, believe it or not, slavery. Because some of us still don't know it's wrong, I guess. Half of the book is devoted to Hermione's social justice crusade of freeing the house-elves yet there is some ambivalence about it, too, as others don't share her enthusiasm. 

Plus, she is kinda prejudiced herself, in the case of Mr. Crouch. Anyway, I kept thinking that were the book written today, the main character would be probably a girl, and half of the schoolchildren wouldn't even be ethnically British. J.K. Rowling has fallen from grace with the modern progressives lately, Twitter wouldn't even take action when she received death threats. 

The main drawback of the book? It's still a story about witchcraft. Read it at your own discretion.

Heat Wave

 We are in the middle of a heat wave, the real one this time as the temps will stay above 30*C for several days. It's kinda warm right now, but the nights are getting longer so it's bearable. The airco hasn't been on yet, but it's quite uncomfortable in the bedrooms at night. 

Well, as long as it stays under 35*C I guess we will be fine. Planning to spend the most of the weekend near water. But it does make you very lazy. I think instead of effort posting I'll just post some vacation pics tomorrow:)

Should We Enable Overweight People?

 This from 2 days ago:

Talk show host and comedian Bill Maher railed against the pro-obesity 'body positivity' movement, saying that not only is it pathetic, it's a national security risk...

 "We’ve gone from fat acceptance to fat celebration. That’s new. That is new," Maher said. "To view letting yourself go as a point of pride? We used to at least try and be fit and healthy and society praised those who succeeded"...

"At some point acceptance becomes enabling, and if you’re in any way participating in this joyful celebration of gluttony that goes on now, you have blood on your hands," he said, adding "You can make believe you’re fighting some great social justice battle for a besieged minority, but what you’re really doing is enabling addicts – which I thought we decided was bad."

I see it all the time online nowadays, not so much in real life. Now, there is no reason to be mean about someone's weight, but fat overweight and especially obese people should be encouraged to lose weight and to try to lead a healthier lifestyle.

They shouldn't be told that they are "beautiful and gorgeous" or "fine the way you are" because it's emphatically not true, and neither are they healthy. 

When you watch some of UTube vids where people show their grocery shopping, you realise that they don't get obese because of "seed oil" or "corn syrup" or "gluten" or even "meat" as vegans claim, or bad genes; but chiefly because of their love affair with processed food, snacks, fizzy drinks, and all sorts of cake, cookies, pies and other sugary junk. 

The success of such diets as paleo or gluten free lies in a simple fact that they exclude this type of foods, not in some sort of "ancestral diet magic", and in portion control. 

I should say it's especially typical for Americans, judging by these videos, that and the lack of fresh fruit and veg in the diet. Here we still have the dinner concept of meat/fish, potatoes and 2 veg; not an oversized burger plus a whole pile of French fries and 2 tomato slices, accompanied by Cola XXL and an ice cream. 

If you are normal weight, you don't have to totally avoid this stuff, just minimise it and you'll be fine. This, and start moving. And for those who need a gentle nudge, avoiding such diseases as diabetes, cancer and heart attack should be motivation enough.

Infanticide Is Nothing New

 and it is tied to the decline of religion, morals and female emancipation:

Greek women participated actively in the cultural pursuits of the time, and contributed to letters, science, philosophy, and art. Aristodama of Smyrna gave recitals of her poetry throughout Greece, and received many honors. Some philosophers, like Epicurus, did not hesitate to admit women into their schools. Literature began to stress the physical loveliness of woman rather than her worth and charm as a mother; the literary cult of feminine beauty arose in this period alongside the poetry and fiction of romantic love. The partial emancipation of woman was accompanied by a revolt against wholesale maternity, and the limitation of the family became the outstanding social phenomenon of the age. Abortion was punishable only if practiced by a woman against the wish of her husband, or at the instigation of her seducer. When a child came it was in many cases exposed. Only one family in a hundred, in the old Greek cities, reared more than one daughter: “Even a rich man,” reports Poseidippus, “always exposes a daughter.” Sisters were a rarity. Families with no child, or only one, were numerous. 

The downfall of Greece

More On Coal

 Here are the pictures:

Global Warming And Coal Industry

 While on vacation, we visited an area in Germany where they used to mine coal. I'll post pictures later. The last mine was closed somewhere in the mid-1970s. Europe industrialised on coal, however later the industry was demonised as contributing to global warming. Yet, in the 1970s global warming wasn't heard of, so I guess it was "pollution" or something similar, I didn't really look into it.

I just keep wondering whether pollution back then and now global warming is the real reason behind destroying the coal industry or was the closing of the mines  the 1st step in the ongoing campaign to deindustrialise the West and turn it into a "service economy" as a part of a larger globalist project?

The truth is that in the mid-20th century the miners had strong unions and achieved many rights. I once read someone talking about his family online, his uncles were coal miners in Britain in the 1950s or thereabout, they enjoyed high quality of life, vacations, good pensions, only had to work for like 20 years and were all single income families, with like 4-5 kids each.

When these workers got on  strike, they could paralyse the whole country, which the government obviously didn't like, and neither did the financial capitalists behind it. So the whole branch of economy was eliminated. The powers that be of that period then had a genius plan to buy gas from a neighbour, the same neighbour that is now turning off the tap. It's working great, isn't it??? 

A strong country is a self-sufficient country, something which so-called Western elites appear to have forgotten, yet they are mostly sheltered from the consequences of their policies which are now causing inflation and instability for the common folks.

I realise some Americans are so afraid of "socialism" that they'd rather side with predatory financial institutions and big business than with working people, but here in Europe it's neoliberal economic policies which are driving population replacement through immigration, feminism and other social ills. They are also behind the recent attacks on the farmers, who constitute a real force.

The corona years taught us a bit about which sectors of economy are really important and which can be closed for like a year and nothing happens. Schools were closed and parents homeschooled. The whole of entertainment and hospitality branches were closed and nobody cared. Yet, when our government was planning to give the employers the power to enforce vaccine mandates, something happened. The dockers of the Port of Rotterdam went on strike and blocked one of the harbours for several hours.

After this, there was no more talk about vaccine mandates. Strange how it works, isn't it? So, everybody is free to draw his own conclusions. I drew mine.
