Jede Frau kommt anders. Die eine schreit beim Höhepunkt, die andere weint, die nächste schweigt. Knutschen ist die schönste Sache neben dem Sex. Für viele Frauen entscheidet der erste Kuss, ob sie einen Mann in ihr Sie arbeiten hart an Ihren Bauchmuskeln, nur der langersehnte Waschbrettbauch will sich nicht einstellen? Obwohl nahezu jeder Mann ein Sixpack anvisiert, werden die seitlichen Bauchmuskeln beim Training oft vergessen. Wie gefährlich das bläuliche HEV-Licht tatsächlich ist, Wir verraten Ihnen deshalb die 5 besten Taktiken im Umgang mit Kritikern.
Warum Sie für jede Machen Sie's sich nicht unnötig schwer. Wir haben 4 leckere Varianten für ein abwechslungsreiches Ob beim Abnehmen oder Muskelaufbau: TMZ broke the story -- Mac and Ariana split back in May -- but at the time, we were told they remained close friends. Ariana posted a photo of the rapper Saturday without a caption. A post shared by Ariana Grande arianagrande on Sep 8, at 2: Culpo threw on several outfits and, fair warning For starters, the year-old graced the cover with a high-leg, low-cut silver bodysuit.
Olivia also threw on some cutout latex pants, paired with a black latex bodysuit. She completed the look with a pink latex hat. Check out the pics Our sources are adamant -- Cardi was simply defending her daughter's honor after hearing Nicki had been talking trash about her family Cardi thinks Nicki has some nerve saying SHE needs an intervention, when Nicki is the one who incites people almost for sport.
Nicki denied speaking ill about Cardi's baby on Queen Radio. Cardi says that's just a baldfaced lie.
She also warned Cardi would "die" if she continued to attack people in such brazen fashion -- while going on to call the run-in mortifying and embarrassing. We should make clear that Cardi isn't seeking Nicki out for another round -- only that she would do the exact same thing she did last week if a similar situation presents itself in the future.
Oscar De La Hoya 's political aspirations aren't exactly being met with thunderous applause in D. Remember, Oscar came on " TMZ Live " on Monday and said he was launching an exploratory team to see if he could get the support he needs to make a serious run for the White House.
Oscar said he's dead serious about running for Prez -- and feels that if Trump could do it, why not him? It gets better -- watch Holder's reaction when we bring up Donald Trump. He didn't have an official comment -- but his reaction said all you need to know. It was just a matter of time, but Conor McGregor has finally been sued by a UFC fighter for that April bus attack at Barclay's Center where he threw a steel dolly through a window, injuring several people.
The man behind the first lawsuit is Michael Chiesa -- who was scheduled to fight Anthony Pettis at UFC but was forced to pull out due to the injuries he received in the bus attack. As we previously reported, Chiesa was on the bus with several fighters and UFC staffers when Conor and his gang of hooligans went berserk. Chiesa suffered cuts to his body and face. Chiesa is suing McGregor for assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
He's also going after the Barclay's Center for negligence, claiming they failed "to engage in proper security measures to protect the plaintiff and other patrons. Chiesa doesn't specify how much he's going after in the suit -- but he's clearly looking for a big number because part of the damages he's seeking are the paychecks he lost due to missing that massive UFC event. Conor was arrested after the incident and charged with felony criminal mischief and 3 counts of misdemeanor assault.
However, he later struck a plea deal with prosecutors in which he pled guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct and the other counts including the felony were dropped. There were other fighters injured in the attack including Rose Namajunas who has also told the media she was emotionally scarred. She hasn't sued yet, but that's only a matter of time.

Well Art, it was simply a joke in the form of a pun. Pequiste got it, but apparently it was too much for you, but hey, that ok. The French will have beaucoup opportunites to resume hand wringing, wreath laying and candle lighting vigils and the like. Followed by Macron authorized importation of several hundred thousands more jihadis and the like. Getting really tired of your slagging off of the EU. Yes, there is much that needs changing about it — mostly in the economic field — but one thing is sure, Europe will survive long after the US has reverted to its pre-industrial past.
Taking pot-shots at current EU travails from your up-state NY eyrie is too easy and your ignorance of actual life on this side of the Atlantic is embarrassingly visible. Ill informed pontificating about the lives of others easily reduced to such stereotypes may fill a few lines in your flagging blog but it contributes a big zero to understanding or insight of the reality here.
That is where the bulk of the refugees are coming from. On top of that you have refugees from sub-Saharan African states who once upon a time were colonies under some of those same EU member states. So as far as history is concerned, those EU member states along with the USA made this refugee shit sandwich. So France and the rest of Europe can belly up to the table, tuck a napkin in their shirt collar and chow down.
Yes, I forgot about Ukraine. It is really hard to keep track of all the regime changes happening around the world at the hands of NATO.
I also forgot the US supported coup in Honduras. And of course, I also forgot the ongoing economic warfare going on against Venezuela.
Yes, they do have quite the government mismanagement but the US is working with the opposition behind the scenes and has been ever since the election of Chavez. That remains to be seen. If they remove him by the book, impeachment or Amendment 25 section 4 of the Constitution then it is a perfectly legal removal of the Executive.
Even up there in the mountains. I think there is youtube video of Khadaffi warning of a huge refugee flow to Europe if they removed him from power? Are the Americans really that naive? Not so much naive, as supremely arrogant.
Europe is a mere diversion. Yes, Finc is Jewish. Everything he says must be passed thru that filter. Masonry is Jewish to its very core. Higher Masonry does have a few non-specifically Jewish symbols like the Eye in the Pyramid. But in any case, all Western Occultism for the last thousand years and more comes from the Jews. And they acquired much of that in Babylon and other places.
Of course they give no credit…. Who are the Masters? They are here now and Masonry has served its purpose in making the way smooth for them. Yet it still serves apparently, at least for now. Meanwhile all other branches of Masonry are open to Jews.
That alone should tell you something as to who the Masters are. The Nazis realized early on that Christianity was failing to provide the Philosophical Foundation that would allow the West to oppose the Globalist initiative of the Hidden Power. Even Orthodoxy with its national churches is far too weak. Unless Christianity can change in this regard, it must be pushed aside in favor of some other philosophy.
As the Muslims say, Jesus taught the way to the other world. Mohammad taught the way in this world and the way to the other world. That being said, who knows what Christ really thought about these things? Nothing was ever recorded about it. What we have is very small and narrow.
Compare that to the volumes we have of Mohammad and Buddha. Indeed they did, although I doubt Hitler spent much time thinking that far ahead.
He came from modest means, was of modest albeit considerably practical intelligence, and apparently had no real plan, other than take over Europe. He was a true man of his times thrust onto the main stage of history. After that, a whole lot of twisted sadistic fucks just opportunistically followed.
Was there an actual Jesus who died on the cross to save you and me? In repudiating its founding myths! I just wonder how concrete any of that thinking was. He was given an exceedingly long leash by western capitalist sympathizers as well of course, including none other than master deal maker Herr Allen Dulles and his entire rogues gallery. You have to understand how they work. But they always try to keep their foot in the door; or to keep a bit on money on all the numbers on the wheel.
Thus they never lose completely. Israel did business with South Africa, a country of White Untouchables. So they wanted South Africa to survive? Of course not — they supported to ban on trade. So they wanted to make money off it as it fell. But as for the White themselves — they want them to suffer unto death.
And her pathetic adversaries, weenies one and all, slack jawed and in awe. Of her certainty, of her calm and steady voice, of her preparation, of her steely intellect, of her command of the FACTS. I wish I was like Sally. Lying about talking to a Russki was boneheaded but not a crime. For what, chatting with their ambassador? OK, you want to talk bizness? The Russian company Rosatom acquired one fifth of all the uranium assets in the US. And the State Dept signed off on the acquisition.
Tell me, does this deal stink to you? Inversions of reality are counterproductive. So, as to the matter of the travel ban, you have to twist facts into pretzels and to invent cauldrons of fantasy to paint this the way that Sally and her cohorts — those mendacious sacks of shit that pose as the party of the little guy — painted it. They could be right and still lose. For all their blather, the policies of the two, enrichment of the rich, affliction of the poor, are carbon copies.
Nope, the Republicans have better play-acting and better marketing. The Democrats, bone-headed as they are, say I despise you. But, make no mistake, the Democrats are out to fuck everyone except those few on the Do Not Fuck List. Flynn violated the Logan Act on December 29, by conversing with Russian Ambassador Kislyak to arrange evacuation of 35 Russian diplomats expelled in impossible to comply by 72 hours time period.
In fact, General Flynn acted as a true American patriot and honorable officer in the interests of preventing a major international conflict with very real potential of going nuclear. This is going viral. I watched about 3 seconds of it. Blacks have their own Masonry: But their works of Globalism are unspeakably evil. Strange since Pike was all for segregation in Masonry.
The Protocols say the Masons are in for a rude awakening when the King ascends to the Throne: I did watch the full rap video and found it quite creative and most entertaining. The real message about certain persons getting away with high crimes and misdemeanors still bothers me. Maybe they prefer crooks? Gangsta kultcha and all. Thwack, Rest easy, he did not turn his son over to the police, an act unforgivable in The Ghetto…he actually killed his son, and then fed his remains to pigs, who gobbled them up.
There is a pic of the father and his cute wife….. Im not trying to be an ass, but eLIEsianfeld keeps trying to bait me into these racial discussions without identify whether or not he is a white person.
You do not need baiting, as your meme is nothing if not about race…it is the thread that holds your garment together. You never have an argument that can stand scrutiny…your statements always devolve to the Ad Hominem…and often are punctuated by an attempt at ghetto lexicon, usually poorly presented. According to one of the basic concepts of the Black Project, super-humans that the adepts of this worldview naturally consider themselves, possess a quality of moral superiority, which means not that this concept means in English, but that super men, perfekti or simply SS , possess a high moral ground even when behaving like a bastardly scoundrel.
This is a very important cultural characteristic and the Clinton State Department insisted on subordinating US foreign policy to it. In particular, the US should not have participated in direct negotiations with North Korea, since such negotiations presuppose some kind of equality of the parties.
And although the negotiations are still secret, but Condoleezza Rice is already thrashing in hysterics. Former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice: Saw Condi on The Today Show this morning. She looked oddly placid and sedate d. Kim Jong Un strikes me almost as a false flag candidate. Other than the loss of their electronic toy industry of course. Up in Vancouver BC locally known as Hongcouver , a biker lad by the name of Robert Pickton murdered over 50 diseased whores and got rid of them by dumping the bodies into his pig pen.
He picked them up on the Eastside, used the skanks for his various boys scout activities, and then into the porcine food chain. He butchered and sold the pigs locally….. Just one more reason to be a vegetarian….. Differentiating between clean and unclean is more difficult in these times. Trump fired the FBI director Comey!!! This strikes me at first blush as more retribution on the part of the Clintonistas and their loyalists, who are no doubt still exercising considerable power now that Trump has been put back on his leash.
Hell, the dumb bastard might well have fired Comey just to fill a news cycle. China is to implement by a tot…tail.. Tarian system in which algorithms will assign citizens a point score. Could you for a minute turn on some logical thinking here?! Why in the world would they want to overthrow Trump by arranging a nuclear war between US and Russia?!
You bring up a good point which should probably be addressed. To many, inculcated in the hagiography of Madisonian checks and balances and oblivious of the reach of Trumanite power, the response to these realizations will be denial. The image of a double national security government will be shocking.
It cannot be right. Its existence challenges all we have been taught. There is, however, little room for shock. We have learned about significant aspects of what Bagehot described—from some eminent thinkers. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.
Bagehot anticipated these risks. The benefits derived by the United States from double government —enhanced technical expertise, institutional memory and experience, quick-footedness, opaqueness in confronting adversaries, policy stability, and insulation from popular political oscillation and decisional idiosyncrasy —need hardly be recounted.
Those benefits, however, have not been costfree. The price lies in well-known risks flowing from centralized power, unaccountability, and the short-circuiting of power equilibria. Indeed, in this regard the Framers thought less in terms of risk than certainty. John Adams spoke for many: There is no other alternative. The trivial risk of sudden despotism, of an abrupt turn to a police state or dictatorship installed with coup-like surprise, has created a false sense of security in the United States.
The risk, rather, is the risk of slowly tightening centralized power, growing and evolving organically beyond public view, increasingly unresponsive to Madisonian checks and balances.
The risk is considerable, however, that it will not be a democracy. More and more by cleverly concealed subliminal where possible persuasion, and less and less by coercion. I think that would be an intriguing way to check out. May 8, at For shielding Hillary from the ServerGate 2.
For framing Trump with a report on the ongoing investigation of his election campaign on counterintelligence grounds during Congressional hearing 3.
For his intent to authorize the arrest of Trump on April 5. That might be the better question here. Pucker, Although [pretty amazingly] no one seems to be able to recall the dim and distant year of , and thence forward, I sure do! The reappearance of these banal, iconic figures of genuine evil is a portent of what is to come. The real universe is made up of vibrations and frequencies. Building of microwave towers in my area is at a fever pitch.
Going to look for a very thick tin foil fedora — something that will go well with my tin foil undies. Maybe even a tin foil umbrella to go nicely with the ensemble. Pequiste, if you can find tin foil which I seriously doubt you had better watch out as it has MANY seriuos health risks. And your concerned about RF energy? Some health effects of Tin include: The uptake of tin bonds can cause acute effects as well as long-term effects.
I only used that nomenclature as it is colloquially utilized to denigrate persons who may be aware of, and those who articulate irregularities, anomalies or outright conspiracies in all spheres of human activity. That David Icke fellow is a tin-foil-hat nutter with all that talk about shape shifting lizard people dominating politics and such. Many of the acute and long term symptoms of tin exposure that you list could also be from overexposure to microwaves and other radiation.
I should have been less cute and more clear by saying I wanted to be well equipped with flexible and resistant including from the weather aluminum foil garments, chapeau and accessories from all of the super- saturation of the environment by R. Much of it detrimental if not plain dangerous or deadly to biological systems. Or how about the strange metallic rumbling that has been heard all over the world for years now?
Are our better angels tuning their Haarp? Some say the Twin Towers were destroyed with this weapon. Hillary can not believe that she has lost, and will not believe until she is convinced of this by the only reality of postmodernism.
The FBI director forgot his place. Dripping with sanctimony in a mildly nauseating deposition before Congress. McCain, the bombing curmudgeon, still resentful and bitter that a man like Trump is sitting in the chair that he, Big John, spent a lifetime grooming himself for, believes this is one more reason to wage war on Russia, and Trump. Kim Jong was recently praised by Trump for his ability to wipe-out opponents.
Druid, Yes, and no more cruelty can be offered than the practice of lingchi…the death of cuts. It is so obscene as to be truly pornographic. There are pictures on Wiki of actual practice, but I would not suggest even looking at them…honestly…I did so, and I regret that I did,. An hour after you posted, you felt like posting it again. Apparently such insightful comments deserve to be repeated ad nauseum. I think that by now, most people here are sick of your Charlie Chan pidjin english and your repetitive closing line.
I have been on this website for years, and people like you show up and are gone again usually in short time. If you are looking for some form of gratification here, might I suggest masturbating in front of a mirror instead. I bask in the warmth of your disregard. Oh captain, good captain, such an excitable outburst — the comebacks write themselves. Captain when anger rises, think of consequences.
Your anger so overwhelm that consequences are hypertension, heart disease and expensive medication. Remember, just as happiness is a choice, so is anger. Let not your heart be troubled. Or, OR, you can just take a trip down to…Chinatown?
And have an exotic salted plum blow you down with a mouthful of honey. Oh yeah — you would be the captain in Muleskinner Blues. The main factor of not only Russian, but the world politics, remains the political consolidation of the Russian society, its deep state of internal peace. The ability of the Russian people to independently, contrary to the hecticness of the elites, distinguish between eternal values and momentary fluctuations was proved once again on the triumphal march of the Immortal Regiment.
The public recognition by a hardened cynic and an experienced politician — US Ambassador to Russia Tefft, that this made an indelible impression — is much more valuable than any anti-Russian information campaigns in the West. Immortal Regiment march in Moscow breaks attendance record, attracts millions across Russia.
The second most significant event was the completion of the initial stage of the transfer, or rather, the intercept of power in the US by the Trump administration. Comey more or less fulfilled his job as a temporary guarantor of the behind-the-scenes agreement between Trump and Hillary about refusing to challenge the election results in exchange for refusing to prosecute the Servergate and other scandals such as the murder of Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi.
The director Comey, who was under high pressure from all sides, might have wanted to resign, but he could not do this until the final clarification of the relations in the higher establishment. Now his departure means achieving a relatively stable balance of power after the exchange of figures on the chessboard and a number of compromises, primarily on the defense budget. Such a bloc against the influence of the remaining globalists on US foreign policy will allow for a purge unprecedented since Senator McCarthy.
Immortal Regiment Sydney youtube. DA, this Deep State that you describe in this post is a highly malleable mechanism. Because unlike mechanisms made of metal that hold their shape, this device is made of people. High malleability can be great advantage because it makes the device adaptable.
This is also its weakness. At some point the wheels come off. Because the underlying purpose of this thing is survival, and because of its adaptability, it will show staying power. But it needs resources. But these resources get depleted as the economy, from which it siphoned tax money, gets moved off-shore. No matter how adaptable, this thing can only shrink as its blood-supply gets choked off. The gangrenous part of the Roman Empire — based in Rome — fell off the stronger territory in the eastern Mediterranean ruled from Constantinople.
That latter section went on for centuries longer. That shows the adaptability of such a mechanism. I think that the US might follow a similar course. This center of power, this Deep State, once insatiable and ever expanding while it had the resources, will have to contract because it no longer has never ending convoys of goods and money.
And so it will have to conduct amputations. So what goes first? Overseas dependencies and protectorates will be cut off. Bye-bye Korea and Japan. And so long NATO. And then good-bye mainland peripheries. What remains is a coastal shell. These abandoned areas might see it differently. Is allegiance to money — a mere transactional token of exchange when you think about it — at its heart a delusion?
Of course it is in the abstract. But in the real world we live in where everyone subscribes to that delusion and believes in its power, having or not having money has all too real consequences. By the same token, once that delusion is popped, the stampede for the exits will be truly awe inspiring.
But the difference this time is that the US and the Americas were literally the last virgin territory to be exploited on earth, so barring a nonsensical push into space which will never happen , some sort of radical retrenchment must surely be in order this time around.
Still the gold standard is such research: Did any of you peak oil believers take the advice of humble nsa offered several weeks ago and sell the sell the barrel oil contract CL on the NYMEX when oil was 53? Today oil is down another 1.
Oil is due for a bounce…but barring nuclear war it should fall to 40 this year……and possibly revisit 35 or even Below 40 tighten those stops up…. They are so transparently, ludicrously pretextual that we should all feel at least a little bit insulted. The three-page memo levels a number of fundamentally valid criticisms. It is also, as perhaps three page memos must necessarily be, pretty conclusory: We are asked to believe that the decision to fire the FBI director—so abruptly he learned about it from a cable news chyron while out of D.
First, in publicly criticizing Hillary Clinton, rather than letting Attorney General Loretta Lynch announce the decision that the former Secretary would not be indicted, and then in informing Congress that he had fruitlessly, as it turned out reopened the investigation into her e-mails. All of them, of course, were well known long before Trump took office and chose to retain Comey.
The most charitable thing one can say about this narrative is that it is not even intended as a serious attempt to advance a genuine rationale. It is an attempt to be cute. So it looks as if Le Pen was right: Can this end well?
They fired Preet Bharara. And they fired James Comey, the very man leading the investigation. Not only did he lose the popular vote, he collaborated with Russia to win the electoral vote.
Sorry janet, that just makes your comment illegitimate. FBI investigation stopped… as part of ongoing cover-up of Russian collusion with Trump campaign. If Elrond is the Darkness, representing the worst aspects of the so called Enlightenment, where is the Light? No National Socialism, with peak everything acknowledged and calculated in with the rest. Guillaume Faye, Archeofuturism, Arktos Media, , pp. Guillaume Faye is one of the most brilliant and provocative writers to emerge from the French New Right.
He has written a great deal in his long and varied career, but Archeofuturism is his best-known and probably most important book. Written in , only now has it been translated into English, thanks to the Arktos Media publishing group, which has made a number of New Right classics available to English-speakers.
Archeofuturism is hard to place on an American political spectrum. Faye is passionately attached to the people and culture of Europe but wants completely to overthrow the current civilization. Much of it is fanciful, but Dr. Faye takes it for granted that race is real. Faye, the notion of the West is disappearing, eventually to be replaced by a northern coalition of whites facing waves of invasion: Faye has nothing but contempt for the present era.
The central dogma of the age is egalitarianism, he writes, and it survives only because of a blind faith in miracles. Forcible equality is tyranny.
Our rulers ignore the dysgenic effects of welfare and — even worse — tax their own people to feed Third-Worlders who long to dispossess the North. The government should not recognize unions that are by definition barren and have no role in perpetuating society. As Napoleon explained, concubines take no notice of the law and the law takes no notice of them. Faye thinks homosexuality should likewise be a private matter, of no interest to the public or the state. Homosexual marriage, however, is typical of the interests of Western governments because our rulers are incapable of grasping the questions that really matter.
Tennis champions or soccer players are nothing but performers, and their position in society should be no different from that of circus acrobats. Video games likewise clog the brain and prevent thought, which pleases our rulers because thought is dangerous.
Faye also decries the disintegration of the family, the decline of education, and the replacement of culture with audio-visual pap. Only radical, revolutionary acts, writes Dr. Faye, can destroy modernity. Unfortunately, Europeans are so domesticated they will never abolish egalitarianism and build a vigorous, self-conscious Europe.
Faye predicted writing in would strike between the years and Among these, of course, are colonization by the South, which will lead to the collapse of multi-racial societies which only whites have encouraged to take root in their midst. The South is creating disasters of its own as non-whites try to mimic whites. Faye laughs at anyone who thinks science will save us.
He predicts plagues of drug-resistant diseases and, most catastrophically, exhaustion of the planet. The earth will run out of energy, he writes, adding that the notion that people would constantly get richer was a delusional spasm that lasted only years. Faye roundly dismisses the fantasy of 7 billion people, all living like 20th-century Americans. Cascading catastrophes will mean financial panic, global recession, plummeting world GNP, race war, and mass die offs. Europeans who survive will live by different principles: Faye believes that what emerges from the rubble is the society Europeans would build deliberately if they were sane, but it will instead be forced on them by catastrophes of their own making.
He hopes his book will guide the thinking of those who survive to lay the foundations. How will society be ordered? People will live in hierarchical, inegalitarian communities that bind members to a common destiny.
Atomized individualism will be impossible because there will be no government handouts, and people will depend on each other for survival. There will be distinct castes, in which the warrior caste will have great prestige. Duties will come before rights, infractions will be severely punished, sex roles will be clearly defined, and marriages will be unions of entire families rather than contracts between individuals.
Faye conceives governance as something like that of the Germanic tribes, or Athens of the fourth century BC. Faye insists that these societies will not be inferior to our own; just different. Not all people will live this way, however.
Advanced technology will not have completely disappeared. A small elite will enjoy its benefits, and will live in material abundance. Just what the relations between the elite and the masses will be, Dr. Faye does not make clear, but he seems to think the elite will run things kindly through an aristocracy that renews itself through talent rather than heredity. The masses, in turn, will be satisfied with their lot, barely conscious of the gilded lives led by their betters.
Faye believes genetic science will unleash dramatic eugenic breakthroughs. He even imagines useful crossbreeds between humans and animals, and cloned organ banks. None of this will be available to the unscientific masses, so the gaps between the two worlds will grow ever larger.
He does not expect Eurosiberia to be entirely exclusive, however: Like many thinkers on the European right, Dr. Faye thinks the nation state is finished. Europeans will have deeper attachments to regions, which will have great autonomy in matters of culture, education, and language. In the meantime, he urges support for the European Union. Faye recognizes that this is a risky strategy, given the stifling, aggressively egalitarian nature of EU institutions.
He nevertheless thinks they will become the framework of his beloved Eurosiberia when the collapse shatters egalitarianism and the belief in miracles on which it depends.
Eurosiberia will be just one of perhaps four or five autarkic blocs that Dr. Faye predicts will emerge. All will be racially more or less homogeneous, with the possible exception of the North American Union. Faye seems to believe that if anyone can make a success of multi-racialism, it is the Americans, but he is not sanguine about that either. The blocs — all with a large pre-technological populations and small elites — will not have much contact with each other, and there will certainly be no foreign aid.
Faye does not hesitate to make bold predictions, and his speculations are always entertaining. Whether one accepts his conception of archaism or not, there is no doubt that Islam and the Third World have the spirit of conquest and absolutism that once characterized Christianity and the West.
Muslims are famously willing to die for their faith, and non-whites are famously ready to riot for whatever they want. But I think he was pretty much spot on with the rest of it. I think most of the disasters he foresees here are either already being played out or are pretty much locked in now. In short, enough people in the west have now glimpsed at where modernity is taking them and have turned away in horror that transitioning back to a much slower, community-based lifestyle again is not likely to be the life threatening, existential challenge that many of us have imagined it will be.
World made by hand, indeed! Barbaric motives never really go away; we either overcome them, or let them overcome us.
Faye presents one vision of the latter. And what a vision. I mean, what the actual fuck? Is a society like that supposed to be able to sustain a scientific and technological apparatus?
No, Faye takes for granted the already-existing science and technology of our own time, which is unavoidably a product of the Enlightenment with its values of free thought, free inquiry, free enterprise and all the rest.
He aspires to take it over and apply it to enacting maximum privilege upwards, maximum servility downwards. Science and technologies are levers of power, so in a totalitarian society where most people are kept as ignorant as possible, real understanding would need to be limited to a technological priesthood, who for some reason would use it for the benefit of an absurdly privileged leadership caste instead of their own benefit. The actual result is likely to be a grimly entertaining spectacle of cruelty and folly.
Who is the dude I forget his name who shows up here every couple of months or so harping on his one and only concern in life: Once you raise the lid on genetics there IS NO limit to the possibilities, especially when you throw in the prospect of profitability.
Frank Baum and first published in as an allegory or metaphor for the political, economic, and social events of America in the s. Scholars have examined four quite different versions of Oz: Biographers report that Baum had been a political activist in the s with a special interest in the money question of gold and silver, and the illustrator Denslow was a full-time editorial cartoonist for a major daily newspaper.
For the Broadway production Baum inserted explicit references to prominent political characters such as President Theodore Roosevelt. The ruby slippers were originally silver. This had to be changed because the connotation was too obvious. If everyone with even 50 bucks to spare would convert it to silver it would be just like Dorothy clicking her heels. The dumb whore thought the world would applaud her killing a dog.
But instead it hounded her to death. You are responsible for both of these deaths. Look at the whole Amish fantasy genre in popular books for women. Sally was on point, and calmly repeated: I said it was unlawful.
