Re: Tracing the roots of the SJW

re the whole trans-gender stuff then as you allude to in your post what is so notable ( & not a little ironic ) is how it has been weaponised against other elements of the left - not just feminists but - as noted below materialists vs po-mo idealists I addressed this first part above about how tran...

Re: The Problem With Apu

I'm liking your sarcasm, mate. Is that BBC 'witty come-back' video real, or a skit? Or a skit of a skit? I can't tell any more. I don't think Lefty comedians dare do material that is genuinely self-satirical (I've seen some faux satire) any more. They will be scared of someone coming after them (or...

Re: Tracing the roots of the SJW

My first exposure to SJW's was when my son, probably 12 - 13 at the time, showed me on Instagram. The thing is, the most voiciferous and obnoxious of them were the same age. I think a lot of people forget that that obnoxious pushy idiot on social media might just be a damn kid. A child who gets off...

Re: Unbelievably Heartbreaking

so what exactly is the much fabled historical phenomenon of "white supremacy" or "western hegemony" supposed to based upon other than a more or less implicit admission of technological & organisational success tested over a few centuries in a global arena - and generally how else are the historical...

Re: Tracing the roots of the SJW

I was contemplating something like this myself, so well done for getting the ball rolling. I sort of have a different take on the SJW term. As 'warrior' here is rather scathing and sarcastic, I take it to represent the screeching emotional college types of whom there are plenty of examples on Youtub...

Re: The Problem With Apu

Seeing the word "problematic" used so many times makes me realise how vacuous it is. It takes me back to the Old Place when I made a hollow boast . I was naive though. I didn't realise at the time the degree to which endless (and repetitive) copypasta was tolerated there. Regarding Lefty comedians c...

Re: The Problem With Apu

Someone actually did a whole documentary on this? That's taking the now familiar navel-gazing associated with this sort of thing into new territory.. navel MRI-scanning maybe. Hopefully the documentary is about the general theme here, or even about how silly it all is (wishful thinking probably) htt...

Re: Unbelievably Heartbreaking

That's a fascinating argument. In the sandbox of thought experiment, anything is possible. That's my take anyway, many think that even engaging about these issues is poison and if they write about them then they have to pepper the text with constant signals to their social group concerning their or...

Re: Unbelievably Heartbreaking

Here though, as in most of the more considered examinations of the subject, we have opened up intelligence to mean more than IQ. It has occurred to me that this can give second wind to that easily discarded white supremacy claim. It could be said that the extremes of IQ both have drawbacks.. the lo...

Re: Is it safe to speak?

^ There's no reasoning with this 'superior' mind-set. They are shut off from any criticism or non-compliance - and even find discussion about these matters distasteful. There is no discussion - it's just do as we say . They are persistant, I'll give them that. I've become increasingly convinced tha...

Milo can be pretty shallow and sometimes it's difficult to see how he holds things together. Here though he is displaying good knowledge of Islam plus an understanding of how to use that knowledge without getting sidetracked, his introduction of abrogation here is well-timed and he keeps the discour...

Re: Is it safe to speak?

A great many people by now will be familiar with Lindsay Shepherd's travails triggered by her using a clip of Jordan Peterson in a grammar class. The whole subsequent dressing down** of her by her 'superiors' is available here , and a lot of comments about this seem shocked as if it's pretty dramati...

As long as he stays away from the subject of race then he will probably avoid the predictable controversy. Who knows what is present in his data though and a younger mind might see it as an opportunity to prove/disprove the alleged connections, this guy looks like he's been around the block a few ti...

Re: Unbelievably Heartbreaking

You're right about it being a 'black hole', but in some environments more than others, it tends to be more a case of a previously laid minefield (rather than something naturally occuring) plus an allergic reaction if someone attempts to do some minesweeping. The question in my mind is whether one i...

Re: Open Letter to Steve Bannon

In spite of Erdogan's recent crackdowns at home and peevish comments regarding the treament of muslims in other countries, Turkey can hardly be called a hardline Islamic regime and yet he criticises Saudi Arabia for recent changes there regarding the activities of women. The idea of ‘moderate Islam’...

This last one is the most interesting as it seems that even a black woman (it's a toss up to whether the former or latter scores highest in the oppression olympics) is rapped on the knuckles nowadays for speaking her mind .

There are elements of transhumanism that are little more than science fiction, like pouring our consciousness into a computer for storage and retrieval etc, these tend to fulfill the element of religiosity present in humans, a yearning towards something that simply provides an impetus rather than be...
