Woke up to a question in comments this morning.
My question is… Why? Why are governments letting potential terrorists in? Are they simply scared into it by not wanting to look racist on the international stage? Or is there money to be made somewhere along the line?
“Are they simply scared into it by not wanting to look racist on the international stage?”
Rasist, misogynist, anti-multiculturalist, anti-socialist, anti-dependency, pro-white male, politically “incorrect,” etc. etc.
The left rules the narrative, even as a rather smallish minority in terms of its most activist radicals. They will show up and shout you down, try to destroy you. And in terms of more moderate, or the right, they’re also afraid of the more left leaning politicians because they know how easily they can demagogue the troops into a frenzy.
The left needs to be utterly discredited and destroyed in terms of an ideology that permeates everything political, now.
Then, immediately following, this fabulous whopper of a comment.
For all her foibles, Rand could wield one hell of a dagger in that pen of hers. I finally got that, after I stopped writing her off as a mere crank. It’s dawned on me that the visceral disgust so many harbor over her is based on little more than secondary knowledge of her work and little, if any, personal immersion into what she’s actually written. I was one of those, admittedly. Fortunately, my capacity for self-correction has grown.
I’ve been instinctively anti-war since my naive days as a fledgling red (in spirit, if not in practice), but I’ve always known that absolute pacifism is just one more pathological extreme, no less anti-life than murderous belligerence. If self-preservation is the most primal of instincts in an animal, to deliberately and completely stifle that in oneself in the presence of a one-hundred percent real, life-fucking threat reveals a perverse level of personal disregard unheard of in any other form of life. The Left idealizes “Nature” and then pisses on their own human variety to maintain their fairy tale feelings. More and more, it becomes clearer to me why, nearly a decade ago, I started smelling shit over on the left side, without really knowing why, initially. But I knew it wasn’t much sweeter on the right. After years of disassembly and examination and re-examination, I came to abide by that pronouncement made by the Bard of Hibbing to another pack of ideologues years ago: “There’s no black and white, left and right to me anymore; there’s only up and down and down is very close to the ground. And I’m trying to go up without thinking about anything trivial such as politics.”
These last few weeks of posts have been enlightening, to say the least, and have finally compelled me to break my four years of silent lurking. (Four years! I’ve earned my bachelor’s in Freeing the Animal. Ha.) I don’t want to see this country get sucked into another endless conflict, but these hornets need to be killed. While I hope it can be done with some precision and exactitude, I know it’s asking too much of this bumbling, bull-in-a-china-shop government to handle even the simplest of tasks with a modicum of finesse, let alone the routing out of a hornets’ nest.
With that said, happy belated anniversary. Free the Animal has been, to quote a Buddhist monk, of all people, an “ongoing lesson in the extent of my own stupidity.” Thanks for being a bright light in this dingy, dark intellectual catacomb we call the internet. ? I will happily carry the culturist flag — the blackest of them all, yes? My submission for that privilege:
Well that’s just great. Edges out my score a bit. I just think it’s pretty damn cool that on their own distribution, over hundreds of thousands of results, those who put in scores very near the extreme right of the distribution are in the top 2%, but even so are getting upwards of a third of the questions wrong. Trust me. It’s a pretty damn tough test.
Try your hand at it, if you’re not a scaredy cat. It’ll cost $9 for results, and you have to agree that you’re liable to damages upwards of $2,000 per question you divulge publicly.
If you score low, like perhaps 110 and below, chances are that you’re primarily a regurgitator. You go around spouting only stuff you’ve heard from lots of others and you do it to appear as though you know what the fuck you’re talking about when by all Occam’s Razor chances, you’re solidly locked into some Blue-Pill, Blind-Leading-Blind matrix.
