Walter E Williams – A Discussion About Fairness & Redistribution

Freedom School: Political Correctness Panel

January 31st/February 1st 2014,  there was an event in Edmonton called ‘Freedom School:  Essentials of Freedom.’

One of the many excellent parts of the program was a panel on Political Correctness:  a number of speakers addressed Political Correctness in different spheres of our life and from widely differing angles.  The short little speeches were followed by a very lively Q&A.

Perhaps I am jumbling the order of speakers, but, I admit I am a little biased…  So, please forgive me that I present the last speaker first:

CodeSlinger speaks on feminism

CodeSlinger has some very insightful things to say on the topic of ‘feminism’ – I think they are important enough to deserve a post of their own:

Don’t kid yourself: feminism isn’t about helping women.

It preys on their psychological vulnerabilities and destroys their ability to be happy and participate in a loving, healthy family. Feminism makes women incompatible with men and then feeds on the resulting disappointment and rage.

Feminism is institutionalized penis envy.

It is instinctive for a woman to challenge and test her mate, first by goading him to fight other men, and later by attempting to undermine his dominance. The man who passes these tests will earn her love and respect; the one who fails will get nothing but loathing and contempt.

Normally, this testing eventually comes to an end as the woman matures and the man has proved his ability to remain in calm control. But modern schooling and media see to it that this cannot happen by creating a society of adult children. The females never grow out of the testing stage, and the males never achieve the maturity to pass the tests.

Feminism gives girls, and boys, an arsenal of high-sounding psychobabble with which to rationalize and justify remaining in their state of arrested development, and propagates this pathological state of affairs by demonizing its natural resolution — the male-dominated family. And the loathing and contempt which women feel for men in modern Western society is the predictable — intended! — result.

Furthermore, feminism is the handmaiden of Marxism.

It is not in the interest of the totalitarian corporocratic state for there to be strong families who look to the father for guidance and protection. This tyrannical corporation-state amalgam has arrogated these roles unto itself. Therefore, the father must be undermined and rendered impotent, causing the mother to abandon the family and turn to the totalitarian system in a Faustian bargain for security. And that is the task for which feminism was created.

The totalitarian corporocratic state — by which I mean the incestuously intertwined nest of snakes born of the unnatural union of big government and big business, which oppresses the people by violating their inalienable individual rights, and exploits them by privatizing the profits and socializing the losses of the entire economy — cannot take root in a flourishing Western society based on classical liberal principles and composed of responsible, self-reliant individuals who belong to strong traditional families embedded in healthy thriving communities.

This is why the Marxist revolutions which swept much of the globe a century ago got no traction in the West. In the intervening decades, the undermining of the moral, philosophical, social and economic foundations of Western society has had one overarching goal, and that is to bring the West to its knees in capitulation to the global totalitarian corporocratic state.

Feminism, from its inception, was — and remains — the thin edge of the wedge which is driving us to that point.

Feminism is not about helping women.

Never was, never will be.

Benghazi: US Foreign Policy and the Influence of Shariah Doctrine

“At 12:30PM on Tuesday, November 13 at Hillsdale College in Washington, DC, the Center for Security Policy is pleased to present a live-streamed panel discussion with three of America’s top experts on the shariah doctrinal threat to national security. Dr. Andrew Bostom, Diana West and Stephen Coughlin will be joined by Frank Gaffney to discuss, “Benghazi: U.S. Foreign Policy and the Influence of Shariah Doctrine.”

All right, this is the recording of the full, live-streamed event:

Long, I agree – but interesting as well as informative.  If you have been caught up in the US election coverage for the last little while and have neglected the ‘Benghazi’ coverage, this is an excellent way to get caught up on some of the key issues that underlie this event.

Really? This takes ‘social engineering’ to a whole new level!

Some ‘town officials’ found a novel way to ‘encourage’ their citizens to drink more water:

‘Talon is small town located in Pecos County, Texas. When town officials realized that drinking-water consumption by residents was well below the national average, they decided take action and three months ago began adding sugar to their water supply to make drinking it more desirable. According to Hester Griggs, the Commissioner of Utilities for Talon, they are adding roughly “4 tablespoons of sugar for every 8 oz. cup of water.”‘

I am at a loss for words…

On a second thought, it’s probably less harmful – in the long run – than adding IQ-lowering, chilhood bone-cancer-causing  hypothyroidism-inducing and, yes, dental cavity-causing Fluoride to municipal water supplies!!!

P.S.  Perhaps it’s time to re-think the safety of GM foods:

‘Eating genetically modified corn (GM corn) and consuming trace levels of Monsanto’s Roundup chemical fertilizer [at levels legally permitted in drinking water] caused rats to develop horrifying tumors, widespread organ damage, and premature death. That’s the conclusion of a shocking new study that looked at the long-term effects of consuming Monsanto’s genetically modified corn.

The study has been deemed “the most thorough research ever published into the health effects of GM food crops and the herbicide Roundup on rats.” News of the horrifying findings is spreading like wildfire across the internet.’

The study itself is here.

ReasonTV: ‘Obesity in America: to Win, We Have to Lose Government’

Of course, some of the ‘obesity epidemic’ in North America is directly attributable to government intervention in our individual lives……

Just recently, my father-in-law mentioned to me that he read a study of the most prescribed drugs in different regions of North America and that he found it curious that in almost all large urban areas, Synthroid (an artificial thyroid hormone) topped the list.  He was wondering why this was…

Did you know that fluoride (in the form of fluorine) is prescribed as medication to people who have overactive thyroids?

Indeed, fluoride lowers the function of our thyroid gland.

People with a healthy thyroid who are given fluoride tend to develop hypothyroidism:  a condition which is marked by fatigue, depression and lowered metabolic rate which leads to – you got it – difficult-to-control weight gain!

Most urban centres in North America put fluoride into their municipal water supply.

Most commercially sold bottled water contains fluoride.

To recap:

Governments put prescription medication in our water supply ‘for our own good’.  Once it’s made us sick, they’ll use this as an excuse to strip us of more of our rights…
