A strange phenomenon in postmodern life is the schizophrenic attitude towards differences between men and women. On the one hand, our culture denies that there are any significant psychological differences between men and women which might explain the radically different preferences of the sexes in many sectors.

If virtually all UberEats food delivery bikers are men and virtually all nursery caregivers are women, this is certainly not the product of differing psychology and physiology (indeed, such notions are oppressive stereotypes), but purely because men and women have been socialized differently since infancy. More to the point, any under-representation of women in some prestigious and influential sector – politics, tech, universities – cannot be justified on this basis.

Conversely, feminists will sometimes argue that women bring unique added value because of their differences from men. We have often heard the argument, well-grounded or not, that women-led nations did better during the COVID crisis. This is a socially acceptable argument to make, while naturally any claim that men might be better suited to any prestigious role will lead to immediate professional termination.

Personally, I believe such double standards themselves stem from the differences of male and female psychology in humans. Two studies found that girls are more egalitarian than boys as early as four years old:

In Study 1 we compared the egalitarian behavior and attitudes of American girls versus boys by tabulating the extent to which each gender awarded the same number of stickers to, and liked to the same degree, two puppets. One puppet followed the child’s instructions or actions while the other did not during a drawing task in which the child played the roles of leader and peer. In the peer role, girls exhibited more egalitarian behavior than boys. In Study 2, French‐Canadian children were shown two drawings by unknown peers—one messily and one neatly colored—, then asked to distribute stickers to each peer’s drawing. Again, girls exhibited more egalitarian behavior than boys. Results suggest the origins of gender differences in egalitarian behavior occur early in life and merit further investigation.

This basic egalitarian tendency – to favor equal outcomes regardless of objective performance – seems to me to underpin a tremendous amount of today’s political correctness. Our societies are being simultaneously feminized, demasculinized (witness the declining sperm counts, testosterone, and muscle mass of today’s males), and infantilized. This appears to be the product of the combination of soft living enabled by the postwar Affluent Society and the steady ratcheting up of egalitarian ideology in the media and academia (a significantly self-reinforcing dynamic).

The now firmly-entrenched West-European Nanny State reproduces in many respects the matriarchal psychology and totalitarian ethics of Kindergarten: one must submit completely, one must say or do nothing that would hurt the feelings (let alone harm the interests) of any child, and everyone will be taken care of. In this scenario however, the helpless “children” to be protected come to encompass every real or imagined victim group: people of color, sexual minorities, migrants, and, of course, women. In this context, frankness of speech is completely devalued and indeed subject to extreme social ostracism.

Hence a spectacular self-reinforcing dynamic: the more power women acquire, the more our societies emphatically affirm that women are oppressed. Government and private institutions across the Western world are adopting ever-more systematic “positive discrimination” in favor of women: women-only training programs (especially in STEM) and, especially, quotas for female management. Actually, we no longer live in times virile enough to even recognize the discriminatory nature (“positive” or otherwise) of these programs.

In all this, the objective facts of biology are of no import. It matters not that sex differences in brain structure are well documented, as are massive sex differences in preferences (e.g. David Buss), largely in accord with what we expect for men and women’s vastly different reproductive incentives over our evolutionary history. Men would thrive or die according to their fighting ability in coalitions with other men. A particularly successful man might have dozens of children, while many would have none at all. Reproductively successful women by contrast would spend much of their life pregnant or caring for children, with absolutely no reason for her to have any particular appetite for risk.

Today, this evolutionary history would naturally explain why men are more violent than women by an order of magnitude, why men are far more prone to risky behavior (dangerous driving, stunts, heavy drinking . . . take your pick), but also why men are far more likely to engage in the risky business of becoming entrepreneurs and founders of start-ups. Most men are not particularly successful, but a few have the talent, drive, and luck to break through with a Star Wars, an Apple, or a SpaceX. Once the business is well established, the assorted naggers line up to redistribute the wealth. The dynamic is identical to a wife’s nagging her breadwinning husband to redistribute resources in the form of a family vacation (documented in photos to demonstrate social status to peers) or expensive private education for the children. The only difference is that the latter is comparatively legitimate.

Naturally there will be both cultural and biological components to observed sex differences – and, pointedly, the biological component will inevitably to some extent also produce cultural tendencies towards such differences – but the idea that these differences are purely cultural is absurd.

The City of Paris offers a unique perspective on France’s feminist future. Paris proper represents the urban core of 2.15 million inhabitants. That’s the famously gentrified and exorbitantly overpriced Disney Land familiar to numberless tourists from across the world. If President Emmanuel Macron represents mildly autistic entrepreneurial pure globalism, Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo represents the trend of multicultural matriarchal social-democracy.

In a telling manifestation of the schizophrenia at the heart of moneyed globalism, Paris – a city unaffordable to working people, not least because of mass property investment by moneyed interests the world over from Emirati princelings to Russian oligarchs and African dictators – is governed by a Socialist-Green-Communist coalition.

Hidalgo’s deputy, the “ecofeminist” black former journalist Audrey Pulvar, hailed the hundredth anniversary of the French Communist Party saying: “This great party has counted for so much in the history of emancipation and the conquest of workers’ rights… the caricature which it sometimes subjected to does not resist to an examination of the facts.” Thus was celebrated a century of sterile totalitarian tyranny and mass-murder.

This is indicative of the structural left-wing bias of the French democratic system. While Communists co-rule in Paris, any conservative politicians suggesting alliances with nationalists will be marginalized, demonized, and effectively eliminated. And this is despite the fact that the Front/Rassemblement National has no clear relationship, let alone a filiation, with the authoritarian right-wing régimes of the 1930s and 1940s.

Globalist social-democrats want to create some kind of equality – with equality of opportunities being systematically conflated with equality of outcomes – while adhering to an open-borders framework which systematically exacerbates inequalities. Certain inequalities are inevitable in any society and the attempt to annihilate them completely can only lead to grave dysfunctions. In an open-borders context, one not only has the natural inequalities among native Frenchmen and the differences between men and women, but one also has the inequalities produced by bringing massive concentrations of foreign capital (gentrification), the undercutting of wages through imported unskilled labor and offshoring to low-wage countries, and, most radically, the mass importation of foreign ethnies with vastly different cultural baggage and cognitive/personality profiles.

Thus we witness some amusing pathologies as globalist egalitarians pathetically attempt with one hand to reduce the inequalities they have massively stoked with the other: The City of Paris was fined for failing to put enough poor people into low-cost social housing, something which can only be achieved through draconian rent controls massively distorting the housing market. The City was also fined €90,000 for excessive “positive discrimination” against men in a bid to have equal representation of men and women in senior management.

The #MeToo revolution is also ratcheting up and increasingly devouring its own. Jews and Communist homosexuals are among the latest to be taken down. Paris Deputy Mayor Pierre Aidenbaum was forced to resign following his indictment for sexual assault, while a young gay communist official has been accused of raping a comrade with his boyfriend. The pressure of feminist groups and the media against Hidalgo’s administration is now so great that Le Monde asks: “Has a ‘rape culture’ taken hold in Paris City Hall?”

In the pages of the same illustrious newspaper, a female member of Parliament, a member of the conservative (sic) party, called for “deconstructing the myth of the seductive male politician.” Eat your heart out, Henry Kissinger!

Hidalgo is a lead candidate for the presidency in 2022 and no doubt she would love to accelerate France’s transformation along Parisian lines. But, while Paris proper may be able to economically sustain such a program, France itself cannot. Indeed, the county of Seine-Saint-Denis, part of Greater Paris, is an economic and social basket case, one vast Afro-Islamic ghetto. France’s second city, Marseille in the south, faces a similar predicament with a mountain of debt and empty coffers.

One wonders where all this will go. Can a new equilibrium be found? Can the system break down and give way to a new one?

One should not be wholly dismissive of the matriarchal Nanny State’s “virtues.” The system does indeed “take care” of people. Individuals are far less likely to suffer from severe poverty, social breakdown, or violence than in the United States. But in this system, there appears to be no place for inconvenient truths. One wonders is certain biological truths, and necessary biopolitical actions, can somehow be expressed in such a system.

If human biological enhancement becomes technologically feasible – say through embryo selection – would Western European states simply ban them as an unacceptable threat to equality or would these states obsessively regulate to ensure “equitable access” to these technologies?

A century ago, the Bolshevik Revolution culminated in what Winston Churchill called a “world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality.” This led to a century of tyranny and mal-development for Russia and Eastern Europe, from which both have yet to fully recover. But what will today’s egalitarian impulse – distinctly less barbaric and more “naggy” than its Bolshevik predecessor – lead to?

  1. Assemblywomen (Greek: Ἐκκλησιάζουσαι Ekklesiazousai; also translated as, Congresswomen, Women in Parliament, Women in Power, and A Parliament of Women) is a comedy written by the Greek playwright Aristophanes in 391 BC.[3] The play invents a scenario where the women of Athens assume control of the government and instate reforms that ban private wealth and enforce sexual equity for the old and unattractive.

  2. It’s only White women (and men) that practice outgroup preference. All other women have the same tribal/ethnic/religious loyalties that their men do. For this reason Whites are doomed, but perhaps a new super race of hybrid White/Asian will emerge from the wreckage.

  3. The “feminist” movement in the United States is really a misnomer. True feminism would empower women to be able to become autonomous if the women chose to do that. NOW is not part of any femisist movement. NOW demands that women become subservient to the collectivist heirarchy within the DNC, and forbids independent thinking if it is in disagreement with the corporate and political agendas of NOW, and are even willing and have gone to extreme lengths to throw women u der the bus in order to elevate men like Bill Clinton since he promised Planned Parenthood financial rewards under his administration. All of the NOW women during the 1992 election threw Bill Clinton’s long list of victims under the bus and attacked and berated them on national media. They are not feminists. They are narcissistic, megalomaniacal, collectivists.

  4. I grew up raised by leftists parents and remained largely oblivious to the existence of major racial differences until adulthood. Our small town was not yet blessed with Sub-Saharan vibrancy so there was nothing to really refute the official narrative in our daily life. Admittedly, there was significant misbehavior by young North-Africans, but it could still be rationalized by them being poor and from another culture. Nobody in my family or in public school ever denied that boys and girls are different because they are so obvious and inborn.
    Even living in a quite wealthy area, my kids have been exposed to enough racial diversity to not believe in the official narrative about group differences (also their dad is a horrible bigot who, it is said, sometimes read the Unz Review).
    Two major pillars of the contemporary official ideology (on gender and race) are totally at odds with what people can see and experience in their daily life. This might be a problem for the regime because it will need ubiquitous and heavy propaganda to sustain the dogma. In comparison, the third pillar of the official progressive religion, Global Warming, works much better because it is based on apocalyptic predictions sufficiently far away in the future to be infalsifiable.

Perhaps competition with China will make the West realize that all this diversity is hurting it. How Western Tech companies will be able to compete with China if they are burdened with diversity hires while China can count on a pool of plus 1 billion people with an average IQ of 110, far above the Western average? On the other hand, they are so many vested interests that the diversity industry continues, that I wouldn’t count on it

    Anne Hidalgo doesn’t really think she is French anymore than a third generation Algerian banlieue dweller. This is quite relevant to how she sees Paris and manifestations of ethnic French cohesion.

    It has already led to a cottage industry of mind-controllers. This is appropriate. You first state things that are unreal, unsound, and unreasonable plus unenlightened, and then charge people so to speak for thoughts that don’t fit these ill patterns. – At first sight a social Perpetuum mobile. – Wokeness as a system of taxation of reason. – So – maybe even something slightly new, seen from a world-historical perspective.

    Will this go on? – No. No, since it causes exhaustion. In the long run, people are too lazy for this kind of liberal derangement sydrome.

    But as for socialism, I said years ago that a form of socialism can work in somewhere like Denmark. But once a society has outgrown their borders, so to speak, they are subject to failure. They stop working for the good of their own who they feel need nothing and if their is no need, the system breaks down, so they evolve outwards with a sense of if they can do it here, then it must be good for everyone, but this is wrong. This hubris will begin to eat away at the foundations, and their own people begin to feel the neglect. Then as more strangers appear bringing with them their baggage, a tapestry of how they were/are wronged and all this begins to weave it’s way into the old then this new fabric assumes the old and new faces are painted over the old faces and the sense of who you are as people is slowly wiped away along with your name.

    It’s a never ending task reminding people why there is so much immigration.
    The popular right loves the parasite / predator view — & yes there’s some truth there.
    But primarily immigration is a kind of osmosis.
    People will instinctively tend to move or flow from an higher concentration of awful to a less awful concentration. . The worse the situation the more likely they are to move in numbers.
    My personal belief — I can’t prove it — all things being equal, people (ie in a mass) will tend to want to stay home.
    So — waves of impossible immigration, north from Sth America to the US & Africa (& the M.E) to Europe.
    Why? Africa & the M. E — a series of horrible wars & economic stagnation going back to — the end of WWII? The 70’s? Whatever. Syrian, Libyian & Iraqi “immigrants” are contemporary examples.
    And the US? It’s often denied, but perhaps there was at least a correlation between NAFTA & a flood of Mexicans.
    The upshot — if you want to stop immigrants invading — do things to encourage them to stay home. Like, say don’t bomb them & don’t do deals with the local oligarchs for your own Imperial interests.

    Women have a mother instinct and a lover instinct that are completely different than each other. As they say, all women have a prostitute and a mother inside her. Women is in her highest vibration when she is a mother and lowest when she is a prostitute. If there is only one man and woman left on earth, their relationship would be that of a prostitute and a john. It is the mother in woman who is normally worshiped around the World either as Mother Mary or Maa (Mother) Durga in India or something else. Not prostitute.
    That is why your lover cannot be our mother except in rare extreme cases of some trauma. If you look for your woman for too much mothering, she becomes less of your lover.
    This egalitarian instinct probably represents the mothering side of women. The lover side can be ruthlessly discriminating.

Most who come into money try to get some White arm candy. The number of Hispanic girls with White boyfriends or husbands is huge. Even AOC, that famous Puerto Rican has got an Irish boyfriend.

    Since Atzmon does not comment on articles not authored by him, I feel tempted to be his unauthorized proxy here and comment that his favorite philosopher, Otto Weininger (“Sex and Character”), pointed out the inextricable congener relationship between the feminization and the judaization of a society.
    Not being Arzmon, I would also add that as far back as in 200 BC Cato Maior warned that “Cras non erunt viri” (tomorrow there will be no men). He attributed the demasculinization of the Roman society to the degenerate Hellenistic influences. It is possible that he used “Hellenistic” as a euphemism to avoid being suspected of anti-semitism, especially after he had expelled from Sardinia all the usurers (a trope if we ever heard one).
    There is no evidence that Cato read Weininger or vice-versa.

    The feminisation of the West has two possible endings, but both end with the restoration of the patriarchy.

    1) The vibrant youth of the third world will colonise the West. They will either kill or enslave the men. The women will become their playthings, possibly wives, but certainly no longer in a position to call the shots.

    2) Men and women of the West who cling to what used to be considered normal Western values will lead a counterrevolution; the women won’t mind a return to their traditional roles, because they know they are not being oppressed, rather they have men who value and love them for completing the other half of their lives, and who were willing to fight to the death to protect them and their common way of life.

    The problem with the West isn’t the women being women; it’s too many of the men failing to be men.

    This might be possible with the islamic invaders in Europe — although, I also doubt it will get to that point, when white men organize and actually fight they can be quite formidable, so if it gets to a war, I trust more white men (if there are any remaining by then).

    But I don’t see it happening with the Mexicans/Latinos in the U.S. There, the more likely ending will be a slow Brasilization, i.e. people will racially mix but the few remaining whites will keep their high status. There won’t be war, but a lot of increase in crime, poverty, urban violence, etc.

    The cleaving in 2 of the lover and wife/mother in women may be responsible for all the dysfunctions of Western Europe.

    As if woman is defiled by sexuality inherently even as such is pure on the marriage bed.

    A non-sexual woman isn’t woman at all neither is she a mother but a eunuch.

    I see this repeated quite often, but is it true? If you watch their international news channel CGTN, you won’t see much difference in discourse from CNN, BBC, etc. The anti-racist, anti-sexist position is the same.

    Yes, the feminist and equality propaganda is essentially agreed upon by elites across the globe. Not only in China, but also Russia, North Korea, Iran etc.

    However, unlike the West, these countries don’t extend that to LBGQTBBQ sex perverts as far as I’ve seen. And certainly China isn’t implementing miscegenation anything like Western countries, despite their liberal rhetoric. I actually suspect this is the main reason that both the Chinese and Russians are under such fierce propaganda attack by the Jewish media at the moment, as the Jews’ ultimate plan is to genocide all non-Jewish peoples by race-mixing them into a dark brown blob.

    It reminds me of how the Jewish media outlets like BBC and CNN would consistently run anti-Japanese attack pieces for things like mourning their war dead or being “sexist”, despite the Japanese being globohomo puppets. Yet I would view Japanese media and see feminist and “equality” messages all the time. Again, I believe this was because the Jews were angry that the Japanese were not implementing race-mixing fast enough as compared to Western countries.

    Now that a) the Jews have realized they will need to use the Japanese as dupes against China in future wars and b) the Japanese have accelerated their globohomo policies (a government official stated last year that Japan must become a “multicultural, diverse nation”), these anti-Japan articles have suddenly dissipated.

  48. This basic egalitarian tendency – to favor equal outcomes regardless of objective performance – seems to me to underpin a tremendous amount of today’s political correctness. Our societies are being simultaneously feminized, demasculinized (witness the declining sperm counts, testosterone, and muscle mass of today’s males), and infantilized.

    This kind of affirmative action has a semi-official and an official supporter in Berlin.

His list is long, of course: At 1:28 in the video. This young gentleman, Daniel Gyamerah, is talking German, but if you give him a few seconds, you will get the vibe – no matter if you speak the language or not.

    “…all things being equal, people (ie in a mass) will tend to want to stay home.”

    I agree. They are almost enticed to come. Family reunification had to be adopted because prospective immigrants didn’t want to leave their parents or brothers and sisters behind. The concept of “multiculturalism” was also endorsed as a further enticement; they could safely continue practicing their customs and traditions in their new homeland. As well, many of their own countrymen would be joining them, so they wouldn’t be alone.

    In the olden days they used to display beautifully colored billboards showing wonderful farmland. Of course, if they were lucky enough to survive the voyage, the new immigrants were met with the daunting task of clearing the land and taking on huge debt. In essence, they were lied to in order to entice them to come.

    And in the case of Mexico, with so many large U.S. corporations buying up their farmland and automating farming, many of the Mexican people essentially lost their livelihoods and then came north.

    Many of the young, single males showing up in Europe are economic migrants who are sending money back home. The African villagers are buying appliances and TV’s with this money. Mexico now receives more in remittance money (money sent back home) than they do selling their oil. Tons of money is being sent home to India, and again the people in India are using this money to buy consumer products.

    It’s one big circle. Purely economics. The Western multinationals go into these countries, set up business, allow the local elites to escape to the West, they in turn send money back to the old country, and the natives use this money to consume the multinational corporations’ products. Win, win, except for the ordinary citizens in the West.

A corollary of those system-competition driven restrictions on western gov’ts was more meritocracy in the West. Meritocracy is precisely the concept that western leftists hate with their guts.

    Now for the quibble. Women aren’t equality oriented. If they were, they wouldn’t aim to marry upward. Even with all this woke world nonsense, emotionally based sense of superiority by women is what drives their embrace of it.

When free markets were introduced to these natural monopolies price gouging ensued immediately, making us less competitive.

But for the women who cheered on and even helped bring about the fall of their nation, there is no cost that they are made to suffer. If anything, they get a net gain. They get new presumably virile husbands who will relieve them of their self-induced boredom with their recently deceased menfolk. Not to mention houses, money, and lots of other fabulous prizes.

  71. In all this, the objective facts of biology are of no import. It matters not that sex differences in brain structure are well documented, as are massive sex differences in preferences (e.g. David Buss), largely in accord with what we expect for men and women’s vastly different reproductive incentives over our evolutionary history.

    I would point out here that American men in government have been keeping known biological racial differences from the public since the civil war. It was a 100% Anglo and male Supreme Court that ruled on Brown vs Board and the full transcript is hidden from the public as it contains unwanted biological truths that were never denied by Brown. The truth regarding the Morton data is still kept out of schools while the fraudulent book on the subject by Gould is required reading for many college courses.

    So I question the inference that women naturally push egalitarian ideals while men embrace human biology and natural history.

    Anglo men in government have been lying about race for over 150 years.

    Christian conservatives have long hoped that race will somehow go away and this reluctance to face reality only feeds dishonest egalitarians.

    The US ruling class is divided by liberals and conservatives but both agree that the public should be deceived on the subject of race. They disagree on what the lie should be but there is complete gender agreement that a lie needs to exist.

    That went on for thousands of years and women today are their offspring which means natural selection most likely weeded out those that resisted while rewarding those that adapted.

    It’s a very harsh truth but aligns with what we know about female nature and their often unexplained attraction to “jerks” or the strongest man in the room regardless of how he got there. They are designed to mate with the conqueror as an evolutionary strategy. We see in in recent history where the Nazis wrote about how the French women practically through themselves at soldiers.

    But both secular egalitarians and Christians *want to believe* that female sexual nature is ideal. As one Christian leader said: We want to believe that God at least made half of us good.

    Christianity at least recognizes there are male and female differences though it tries to control the nature of both by focusing on men. Liberalism takes it to a new extreme where gender doesn’t exist but allows for contradictory positions as the author described (gender doesn’t exist but women are superior at…).

    In both documents, major differences between men and women (physical, psychological and spiritual)
    are clearly acknowledged and discussed by Progressives in the context of a national mandate to limit the industrial work day for women to ten hours or less.

    It’s all in the diet, dear Guillaume.

    Perhaps a bit more complicated, but it has little or nothing to do with women’s lib or any of the other social trends Durocher would have us buy into. The decline in sperm counts has been going on since at least the 1950s. It has been a linear trend downwards, at the rate of about one percent a year. Long before the modern subjugation of men.

    Same for testosterone levels, I think. And certainly the modern obesity epidemic started at roughly the same time.

    Quite possibly diet had something to do with it. But the war also marked the big surge of the petrochemical industry, with its phthalates, bisphenolA and PCBs, with its organochlorine pesticides, plasticizers, fire retardants and a host of other chemicals.

    The hormone diethylstilbestrol (DES) was given to many thousands of women between 1940 and 1971 to prevent miscarriage. The infants who survived this treatment displayed all sorts of sexual abnormalities and dysfunction.

    And let’s not forget the birth-control pill, with hormones that were peed out of the woman’s body only to be ingested by other people when the water was purified.

    Hysterical, histrionic females in a war zone and around heavy equipment with no mechanic knowledge nor upper body strength. What could go wrong?

    “A country is held by its men, not its women. When a country is invaded and conquered the men will be slaughtered and the women will spread their legs.
    Short and sweet.”

    This looks like an overstatement or a even a defamation.

    For example, how does it square with the behavior of the mass of German women in the last days of WWII when confronted by invaders from all directions? From my knowledge the generalisation doesn’t cover that.

    And as to the “benefits” for women who succumb…that is also very problematic.

    lol There is some truth to that. Guys who spend their time arguing about female nature and constantly trying to figure out “what women want” obviously haven’t had many close relationships with opposite sex.

    It’s human nature to fear what you can’t understand and there seems to be some of that happening here as well.

    China pursues such policies in a search for ‘harmony’, a very high good in their culture. Western ‘wokeness’ is false, a cover for oligarch predation, a ‘Divide and Rule’ technique and a weapon to be used against other states and cultures.

    I didn’t say that it would necessarily always be voluntary for the women. Voluntary or not that’s what happened to the women in Germany and Japan. And of course, there’s no question the men and boys were slaughtered.
    Regardless it is still something a nationalist father should at least point out to his son. So as to impress up on him that this is a serious business.
    For example, take a look at the recent experience of the Armenians. Maybe if Armenian fathers had drummed into the heads of their sons that they should never let their guard down with regards to Azerbaijan so many Armenian sons would not have gotten themselves slaughtered and still lost Nagorno-Karabakh .

    Indeed I would suggest that any father who cared about his country would drill it into the heads of his sons. A country is held by its men, not its women.

    You might want to have those fathers remind their sons that their self centered narcissistic bitches get to vote them into those wars.

    That being the case, there’s no women or country to really fight for these days, now is there?

    They don’t call it a ‘Cunt-Tree’ for nothing.

  112. Speaking of the left cannibalizing itself, there’s no better example than feminism’s reaction to trans-lunacy. Strictly speaking, the trans types are on the right side of the ideology since feminists have been saying for decades that gender is merely a social construct. Now they are struggling to maintain their position on top of the oppression Olympics while the Trans types continue gaining oppression points. But this also highlights how feminists (and most women by extension) generally lack principles and only understand self interest.

    Women use words like “fairness” and “equality” without understanding what they mean, but correctly gambling that men do and hence the latter are easily manipulated.

  113. @Andy

    The US is all about “all men are created equal”. It’s impossible for that to change when merely hinting that it should change is enough to destroy one’s livelihood and reputation. The US is as intolerant of dissenting opinions regarding egalitarianism as Stalinist Russia was regarding communism. The US has fallen into a dark abyss and will plunge all the way to the bottom. And the sooner it happens, the more chance there is other White countries can be saved.

  114. >”Two studies found that girls are more egalitarian than boys as early as four years old”

    Ok, so I checked the 1st study:
    1. “Leadership condition After introducing the child to the puppets, the experimenter explained “Here is a drawing and some markers for [names of two puppets] to color in. Now, they are going to color and you are going to be the leader. You tell [names of puppets] what to do. You are in charge. They will listen to you. Can you tell [names of puppets] how to make a drawing just like this one?” The follower puppet always followed the child’s instructions, and the non-follower puppet disregarded every other instruction by drawing with a different color.”
    “In the leadership condition, 35% (8/23) of girls and 36% (8/22) of boys awarded the same number of stickers to both puppets”
    2. “Peer condition one puppet imitated everything the child drew by drawing in the same spot with the same color, while the other puppet drew with a different color every other time “For the stickers question, the experimenter pointed to the puppet’s drawing and asked “Did you like [puppet’s name]’s drawing? Do you want to give her/him 1 sticker, 2 stickers, 3 stickers, or no stickers?””
    “In the peer condition, however, significantly more girls (60% or 15/25) than boys (26% or 6/23) awarded the same number of stickers to both puppets”

    So, when the problem is framed in terms of hierarchy, the results are the same. Females are just as likely to hate insubordination.
    …And… the peer condition proves… what exactly? That’s hardly a question of egalitarianism, it’s a question of aesthetic taste.

    Also, these numbers mean that 10 girls out of 25 *didn’t* award, while 15 boys out of 23 didn’t. This “significance” here is merely 5 children difference. Boo fucking hoo.

    Similarly, the 2nd study: “Significantly more girls (50% or (29/58) than boys (32% or 14/44) awarded the same number of stickers to both peers”

    I’ll translate it for you:
    -68% of boys didn’t award the sticker for the shitty drawing
    -50% of girls didn’t

    18% difference. Boo fucking hoo. More egalitarian, my ass. As Mark Twain put it: “Lies, damned lies, and statistics”

    A 2017 study led by Charles Tyler at the University of Essex found that, at 59 river sites, up to 20% of male fish had developed female characteristics, some even laying eggs, while others showed reduced fertility, aggression and competitiveness.

    Thanks for that. Here’s another of Dr. Tyler’s very disturbing studies, from 2015, which should give us all pause:

    This review evaluates the evidence that endocrine-disrupting contaminants (EDCs) – pollutants that affect hormone systems – are impacting on wild amphibians and contributing to population declines. …. Evidence from laboratory studies has shown that a wide range of chemicals have the ability to alter hormone systems and affect reproductive development and function in anurans, but for the most part only at concentrations exceeding those normally found in natural environments. Exceptions can be found for exposures to the herbicide atrazine and polychlorinated biphenyls in leopard frogs (Rana pipiens) and perchlorate in African clawed frogs (Xenopus laevis). These contaminants induce feminising effects on the male gonads (including ‘intersex’ – oocytes within testes) at concentrations measured in some aquatic environments. The most extensive data for effects of an EDC in wild amphibian populations are for feminising effects of atrazine on male gonad development in regions across the USA.

    So now the Jews control earthquakes and tsunamis

    Exactly. What was I thinking? Been here at UR far too long with my tin-foil hat pulled down to my jowls. Keep it up and you never know what will happen. I might even start thinking Mister Bibi and Mister Sharon could have placed 150 kt nukes in the basements of the Twin Towers. Slap my head once again. We all know they don’t even have nukes, let alone any Dolphin-class German submarines to drop them into position.

    In my defense, and for what it’s worth, you and your Mossad buddies could have done a better job of scrubbing the videos that put such thoughts into my mind. I mean all that horrifying tsunami footage, with the tsunami waves hitting the shores of Fukushima after a 9.0 earthquake had devastated the town. And not even a street sign or a telephone pole out of place before the waves came in. Not even one crack in the pavement.

    But as you say, it’s simply hilarious. In the future I will try to confine my thoughts to considerations of whether such evil even exists in the world and whether a nuke detonated just offshore could even raise a tsunami-like wave.

    Oh, and scrub The Pink Panther Strikes Again from my film library.

    Do we really need entrepreneurs?
    Do we really need risky startups?
    I think the answer is no.
    And I have to wonder why the author chose to highlight the risky business of startups and not the risky business of starting wars.

    Maybe wars were OK in the past but they are not OK now.

    How do we confine men to the fun and games of startups and prevent them from starting wars?

    Women, too—those who, like Clinton, Albright, Rice, Power, and a clutch of others, are “aping” the men in order to get “alpha male” status.

    Well, every ruler wants harmony among its ruled ones. In democracies, however, politicians want division while they are not in power, and harmony after they obtain power. This tactic can go very sour and backfire.

    I tend to favor the explanation by the other replier (Levtraro), that China has a discourse for foreigners which is not necessarily the same as the one for the internal audience. In CGTN, I have noticed how they are very respectful towards Black Lives Matter and the demonstrations of 2020. They may be trying to exploit that in order to make the U.S. look bad and China look good in comparison.

  122. China raised Austfailia’s appalling human rights record at the UN, recently, with reference to atrocities in Afghanistan, and the appalling treatment of refugees arriving in boats. But they neglected the Big One-Austfailia’s utterly diabolical treatment of its Indigenous, with its real genocides, multiple massacres (all denied until recently, now ignored)and continuing atrocious living conditions, shortened life-spans and mass incarceration at rates that exceed any other group in any country. They should hit that in every forum open to them, and in their information channels-it might embarrass the current, intensely racist and misogynist, Federal regime into action. Probably to accuse Indigenous leaders of being ‘agents of the CCP’ if I know this sewer correctly.

    It is quite bizarre. This article is from an Israeli website posted on March 20 2011. This is just 9 days after the event. Why was Israel installing security cameras in nuclear plants in Japan, a year before the tragedy? Whatever that was recorded was not shown in Japan.

    https://www.israel21c.org/israeli-surveillance-at-fukushima-plant/

    As Japan prays for the success of the Fukushima 50, security cameras installed by the Israeli Magna BSP company are recording events from inside the nuclear plant.

    Magna set up the security system about a year ago at the facility, which suffered extensive damage after the recent earthquake and tsunami.

    Launched in 2001, Magna is based in the southern Israeli city of Dimona. The defense security company specializes in producing and installing stereoscopic sensory and thermal imaging cameras. Siboni said that his company’s cameras were probably not damaged in the quake and tsunami as they were placed high up.

    Theoretically, Magna is able to gain remote access to the cameras at Fukushima. But because the Japanese government has not yet given them the right to do so, Magna has not yet seen the images being recorded there.
