It’s interesting to juxtapose “The Bad Writing Contest” and “Are Democrats Deliberately Choosing Impaired Candidates?” In the former, I note that one of the winners from 1998 was Judith Butler, doyenne of wokeism and one of “the most popular and influential literary scholars in the U.S.” (Eek!) When I consider that most Democrats who’ve gone through quackademia since the late 1990s were steeped in the kind of imbecility penned by Butler and her ilk, I’m forced to wonder: How many unimpaired people are left to choose from?
Picked a couple of books to reread.
The non-fiction book/
McCarthy, Marshall, and The Other International:
Roosevelt, Trotsky, Stalin, and America’s Progressivist Deep State
by Joseph P Farrell, 2020.
After reading about XI crushing political clique;
I can’t help but think of FDR and…
the years he had to set-up; a never-ending, red-threaded bureaucracy.
Why people are leaving churches? I listened to JF’s last interview on DJ yesterday where he explained why he thinks Orthodox churches will help keep the one world government from occurring – made a lot of sense – their authority is local not pinpointed with one leader; I wouldn’t join Roman Catholic church because the Pope rules all and I don’t particularly trust that office or the Vatican. [No offense to anyone here, I wasn’t raised Catholic and it’s not a reflection of those who attend.] On the other hand, there are so many Christian churches in the US that don’t really stand for much or are not inspiring and just have a lot of rules. There’s an old joke: What do you get when you cross a Unitarian with a Jehovah’s Witness? Answer: Someone who rings your doorbell for no reason at all.
My personal opinion is that most of the Christian churches don’t understand who Jesus was and have watered down the mystery and purpose of Christ to the point that he’s “just a nice guy”, “misguided Jew”, or a “teacher” – “he walks with me and he talk with me” … the mystery and magnificence of Christ has been eliminated. Without that mystical understanding people don’t understand the important teachings and questions: Who am I? Where did I come from? Where am I returning? What is my purpose for looking away from all of the material distractions and distortions of the world to something I can’t see and haven’t learned to feel or understand? and How do I connect with the mystery from which I came?
Again, no intention of insulting anyone, but I think many people from the churches who are closing their doors, or locking them except on Sunday, are hollow and people feel that hollowness and are lured away to fragmented and assorted “feel good” new age hocus pocus or they abandon God altogether and become exiled to whatever has the biggest hold on them whether that be money, technology, drugs, sex or whatever.
Why are veterans committing suicide? For all the reasons stated. My father was WWII disabled veteran – he was a psychological mess, but at least he had the mentality that it had to be done, whether that was really true or not I can’t say. Everything since then falls on that list.
I’m VERY VERY simple-minded … I am a different person from you in every conceivable way and isn’t it marvelous that there is so much diversity, contrast and abundance in human life? The Bible says that it is not our place to judge – great, that let’s me off the hook big time. I don’t have to agree or participate, but as long as you’re not abusing or hurting anyone, especially my kids, then that’s good and I wish you the best possible life.
The original word “cyrice” means cows reign, being a nickname for a kindergarten, that, by papal meddling, has morphed into a Roman mausoleum.
On many occasions, I have been asked, if I were a priest. I usually reply, that I am just a bardic druid, by natural occurrence.
I have also observed, that freely spoken living words attract instinctual fear, as they collide with the regime.
In 1st century BC, one dared not say Yahweh, out of fear of reprisal, and so it is today.
That’s so sweet. “Suicides”.
