You don’t go back to church because you believe in God.

The late Christopher Hitchens’ released God is not Great: how religion poisons everything in 2007. He coupled its publication with a series of live debates with various religious leaders where he used his vast oratorical skills to overcome his ideological opponents. But even though he was a masterful speaker and debater, his arguments on religion are weakened by a few fundamental flaws.

One of Hitchens’ core arguments was that he did not require a heavenly body to guide him on how to be a moral human being. He was able to be a good person in spite of God not because of His existence. But Hitchens was a product of his cultural and social environment, an environment which was firmly rooted in the traditions of Christianity. To claim that his civility was not a result of his civilization is pure ignorance at best.

Daddy Issues.

If you want the clearest answer to why women’s liberation is a bad idea then just stop by the solipsistic train wreck that is feminism. Third wave feminism is what happens when you don’t keep women in line. We can only hope that in the future it will be studied, (in real and recovered institutions of higher learning), as a core example in a philosophy class populated entirely by young men.

Feminism is simply women without limits, and like dogs and children, if you do not prescribe limits on women they will become extremely unhappy. They push the limits precisely because they are searching for the boundaries within which they can happily dwell, freed from the tormented demons that run amok in their pretty and convoluted heads.

The future is clear – Marry up, red pill boys!

A very interesting post from the great heartiste where he examines the demographic breakdown of voters in the recent US election.

Audacious E and Steve Sailer stress that the real dividing line is, and continues to be, marrieds versus unmarrieds rather than women versus men. I wonder though if AE & SS haven’t missed what I consider the most telling demographic Trump vote share revelation. As anonymous over at Sailer’s comments,
Which of these things is not like the others?

Single white women: 39.0
Married white women: 61.4
Single white men: 59.0
Married white men: 61.0

Roissy goes on to say,

My arts degree is worth something, it really is!

Good news for all those poor saps out there that dropped tens of thousands of dollars on an arts degree that so far has only got them a job as a “barista”. (Is it just coincidence that a pleb who makes coffee morphed into a “respectable profession” right around the time that employers began realizing that having a degree meant you were nothing but trouble? Surely not.)

Anyhoo, it turns out that you’ve been saved!

Employers want what arts graduates have.

James Massola – fake journalist extraordinaire.

Fairfax press has a rather dubious article out today on the same sex marriage debate. Or should we just call them Fakefax press? Fake news put out by fake journalists who are campaigning for fake homos to have fake marriages. That’s one hell of a lot of fake. I wonder if we can find some fake icing to put on top of the fake cake?

Conservative majority in 12 Coalition seats back same-sex marriage vote in 2017.

Voters in some of the most conservative seats in Australia overwhelmingly support legalising same-sex marriage in 2017, according to a decisive new poll of a dozen Coalition seats.

Oh noes – it’s a poll! And not just any old poll, a decisive poll. You can’t get more authoritative than that. Unless it was written in crayon. Pink crayon of course.

A few good books.

They read Gibbon’s Decline and Fall on an eReader but refuse to drink Château Lynch-Bages in a Syrofoam cup.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb.

I am reading a few books at the moment; I always have a number on the go at any one time. In my gym sessions I’m reading a collection of essays by the brilliant English art critic and journalist, Giles Auty. Reading in the two minutes between workout sets is a wonderful use of my time, a habit that I picked up from Vox Day. It’s particularly effective for books that challenge you a good deal. You spend two minutes reading a snippet, then you hit five reps of squats where your mind works over and absorbs what you have just read. I get a lot of ideas that way.

Change is not necessarily progress.

I was reminded this week of how far the Right has shifted towards the Left over the last twenty years when I saw good old Hillary Clinton’s quote from almost twenty five years ago – “abortion should be safe, legal, and rare.”

Rare is of course the key part of this little snippet of deception. In the quarter of a century since this blather the USA has set up a government offshoot in Planned Parenthood which is in the business of encouraging women to have abortions. The Left has shifted position from one of assuming that abortion is only a matter of last resort to one where it is now promoted as a lifestyle choice. This is the old “slippery slope” argument that the Right has constantly warned against but in the process has succeeded in doing exactly nothing about.

#Fake Australians.

A post over at Vox Day’s site alerted me to a reddit thread that concerns a breakthrough in the art of rhetoric against the Left:

So I am talking with one of my cuck friends that is a Facebook shill reposting a bunch of Huffington articles. I was talking to him about his kids and school and which school they are going to attend because they go to private schools. He starts talking shit about Trump and Betsy DeVos and how they are going to ruin the school systems. And I say, “well you made your decision to go to private schools long before Trump and DeVos had any influence.” He chuckles sheepishly and says the public schools in his area suck.

So I give him a little shit and say, “Oh yeah, so you are all about open borders as long as those kids don’t go to the same schools as your kids.”

AND THEN I SAY THE MAGIC WORDS:

“Fake American”

And this guy that I knew and loved absolutely loses his shit on me. I am talking epic meltdown. I thought at one point he was literally going to attack me.

I don’t know what it is with the left and that label “fake.” They really really hate it. I mean #fakenews is driving them f-ing insane.

This is sheer rhetorical brilliance. No other description is accurate. Fake is right at this moment the most powerful adjective on the planet. It is powerful because it is accurate. It exposes the pretty lies and delusions that leftists and progressive cultural Marxists must submit to in order to have some semblance of coherence in their political worldview. In fact it does more than expose the lies and inconsistencies – it blows them apart.

Friday links and resident hawtness.

It’s the end of another week, the end of another batch of my brain cells to alcohol, the end of the Dutch election that was portrayed as a win for the incumbent prime minister before counting had even begun, the end of Coopers brewery which was just about the last surviving business in South Australia, the end of renewable energy, the end of the Greens, (nobody is talking about how shit they did in last week’s WA election), the end of funding for the arts in the USA, the end of the stick that Lefties everywhere smashed over their heads in exasperation at that lesbian bint’s attempt to discredit president Trump by announcing proof that he earned lots of money and paid lots of taxes. Stupid much? Nobody does stupid like cat’s-arsehole mouthed paddlers of the pink canoe who discrimination-law-suited their way to the top.

Let’s get on with it, shall we?

Feelings trump free speech.

Over here in the sunny Australian climes we’ve been having a little battle regarding gay marriage. Ostensibly the battle is whether the definition of marriage should be altered from that of being exclusively between a man and a woman. But it’s really a battle as to whether people should even be allowed to discuss the implications of such a proposal. It’s battle of whether feelings are more important than freedom of speech and feelings are winning by a long margin.

The very act of debating gay marriage in a calm, reasoned, and respectful manner is now verboten as far as the gay mafia are concerned. A seven minute video hosted by the Bible Society which depicted such a debate between gay conservative MP Tim Wilson and Christian conservative MP Andrew Hastie has set off a firestorm of abuse from gay marriage advocates in the last couple of days. I would like to show you the video but it has comprehensively disappeared from the internet. The Bible Society itself has removed their own video.
