I’m a noun and so are you

Sylvia Shawcross

I’m afraid to go out there now. In the world I mean. Not because it is getting more and more violent or because of the germs or anything, but because I’m afraid someone is going to ask me what my pronouns are. And truth is, I haven’t got a bloody clue anymore.

I just read an article where a school in California is officially teaching in their curriculum about nine different genders (agender, androgynous, bigender, cisgender, gender-nonconforming, gender fluid, gender questioning, nonbinary, and transgender) and ten different romantic and sexual orientations (androsexual, skoliosexual, demisexual, gynesexual, polysexual, and asexual, as well as heteroromantic, gyneromantic, homoromantic, androromantic, and skolioromantic.)

This is getting confusing. I don’t know about you but I had to drag out the on-line dictionary. Now I’m trying to figure out how are we to match our pronouns to all this?

We’re going to have to sign up for a pronoun Ap. (Now there’s an idea for an enterprising young Ap programmer actually…)

I know I’m supposed to know all this but I’m absolutely convinced we all have a finite amount of space in our brain which I’m carefully saving up for retirement and this whole thing was just getting entropically complicated and I’m sorry to say I gave up after Zer and Zem.

I mean, if I was trying to be serious about it all I’d have to ask which pronouns? The Personal, Objective, Possessive, Reflexive, Intensive, Indefinite, Demonstrative, Interrogative, Relative or even Archaic? I mean which one do you mean for heavens sakes!!!

Leave me alone! I am not my pronoun! I’m a noun, dammit!

Am I allowed to be a noun?

I’m not sure anymore. I figure we’re really all a bunch of nouns looking for a verb and being sidelined and bamboozled by adjectives so we never get to the object. We’re nouns all dressed up in adjectives for a party we never get to attend.

It’s a brutal world isn’t it. And somewhat complicated. I mean if pro-nouns matter, are there anti-nouns? Maybe antifa-nouns. I guess the media would be the Ad-verbs and… yeah okay… taking the pun too far again but you get my drift: we are nouns in a complicated world.

I’m not sure what that has to do with anything but there it is. And I make no apologies for it.

I’m not sure how it happened but now the government seems somewhat consumed with these gender issues. I was just remembering a time here in Canada… was it so long ago? When Trudeau said something like “The government has no place in the bedrooms of the nation.”

I forget why now. But that wasn’t Justin, but Pierre Elliott, then Prime Minister and father of our now Prime Minister.

The thing is, it used to be we were about other things besides gender. It is almost hard to remember what those were now. But that I suppose is just what happens with time—Pendulums swing like pendulums do. (You now have this ear worm. See how I did that. You’re welcome.)

Now, speaking of language and gender I have a bone to pick with the powers that be. So many of these power-brokering controlling types are always doing things to transform the world as we know it that it worries me more when they don’t do things. And one of the things they appear NOT to be doing is creating genderless objects.

See, I live in Quebec, Canada and they are driving us to division again over language laws*** as if we all were about to be enlisted to re-enact the 1759 battle of the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City where the French lost the grand battle to the English. So it would have to be re-enacted to a different outcome (which is the only way a re-enactment might be allowed.)

The powers that be have determined that language is what this part of the world can be divided over. (Little do they know it is actually who makes the best Poutine.)

Nowadays the English and French have started to get along quite well here in the greenery of the Belle Province. This tended to happen indeed once people decided to ignore their government for the most part and the generations coming up were pretty much bilingual and our immigration policy was bringing in people who spoke something like five different languages regularly.

We realized we kind of looked rather pathetic squabbling over two languages after that. Most of us anyway.

But in any event, the problem is, while they are driving us all to distraction with French-only policies they seem to have forgotten that French is one of the most gender-racist languages we have.

Objects can either be masculine or feminine. People can only be male or female. The “le and the la” are the lay/les of the land so to speak. The “ils and the elles” are the ills and the hells of everyday life. (Alright, I tried punning there again. Rather badly. Maybe I should stop that….)

Anyway, this is absolutely shocking. There is no way in tarnation that if they really do decide to re-enact the battle of the plains of Abraham that the LGBTQIA2S+ paraders can participate and that is very upsetting. It’s about human rights. And dignity. And freedom. And inclusion.

Except maybe for English speaking Quebecers.

Who knows why this mind-boggling oversight is happening except perhaps those who control seem to have one-tracked minds. They can only do one thing at a time and they’re so busy dividing people they’ve forgotten how to amalgamate things. They can do language or they can do gender but they can’t do both. Probably because they are funded by different departments and never the twain shall meet.

I wonder if the English would have a court case arguing that the province is forcing them to speak in a possibly misogynistic language and it is detrimental to the spirit and goals of the LGBTQIA2S+ community?

I suppose, in the spirit of the New Abnormal we could just cancel the French language altogether for not being politically correct. That would, of course, make me and a lot of other people very sad but that’s what we usually do now, isn’t it?

The truth is, I haven’t actually looked this up to see if they are addressing this grievous grammatical human rights issue. For all I know they may have changed everything and everyone to plural which will make gender identification just that more difficult I suppose.

I personally think we should all go back to grunting and howling since it is all just noise anyway and nobody is really listening to anybody else anymore. Nor should they. In this ghastly world.

Also, the best poutine is made by Carlos in Masham, Quebec, Canada.

Sylvia Shawcross is a writer who may or may not believe a single thing she writes. That’s the great thing about writing humour. Everybody should try it. Just a warning however, that might involve dragging yourself out of the pit of despair about the state of the world and the way some people are and a lot of coffee and more than a few prayers in a desperate search for one small inkling of a funny thing in the bleak and unforgiving landscape of our miserable downtrodden existence as humans. Well, at least that’s how it is for her. Also, a reminder, even though you are only a noun in this world, there are other nouns. There are trees that have leaves that flutter in the wind. There are oceans drifting on shores. There are children laughing and the touch of a cheek by someone who loves, loved or may one day love you. Even the ubiquitous rainbow after a storm exists. That is there for all of us. It ain’t all bad. There is also chocolate.

Utopiain socialism and feminism in the beginning was about making everyone part of one. One humanity, one race, one gender in some ways even. A slogan like “no borders” still echoes those sentiments as does the esperanto language.

But while I have found those ideas less and less desirable at least they can be found to be naively admirable. Todays “leftist” narrative is a paradox baked into hypocrisy. Anti nationalist as ever it instead seeks to divide humanity into ever smaller categories. Into more categories than white, brown, yellow or man and woman or French, Russian, Chinese, Namibian etc.

Like this writer its not just that I disagree with it, I can´t understand it.

Nutty as language obsession can be, you must certainly know that there is something specific going on with French Canadian language that concerns genocide. So why don’t you tell us “the truth” about it so as to fill in the context better, and better appreciate your flippancy?

I’m reminded of a complaint made by an Education Expert, reported in the ‘Education’ section of The Australian ‘newspaper’ some years ago…The Expert wished mothers would
not teach their ‘pre-schoolers’ to read as it made it harder, later, to teach the kids the right way…(“Early learning gets in the way of school learning”)…

Much of what i got the cuts for failing to learn, while at school ,proved to be useless in the Real World…The young now have to learn a list of strange pronouns, though already i have difficulty understanding much about today’s young…

There’s Pronouns, and there’s MATH…Interesting to read the objections to making captive schoolkids learn MATH they’ll never have any use for in The Real World…

I do find these relatively recent discussions of gender and sexuality really curious but mostly disturbing.

It’s disturbing that some people discuss these matters as though they are a real thing, and since they are real they should be taken seriously, never mocked, just accepted. It is never considered that the people being discussed, a portion of the LGBTNPDU$#15? community and their supporters, are in fact completely fucking insane.

I don’t mean insane in a weird wacky, caracture sense, I mean insane as in having profound mental health issues requiring serious medical intervention. Just one such example would be non-birthing transgender lesbian men whom identify as being Manbian. Yes, Manbian, men who identify as lesbian women.

Should I continue and describe what happens when people like this end up in jail, and in particular when they actually get sent to a women’s prison, hmmmm?

It’s not a topic that has a funny side, unless it is being mocked for the complete insanity that it is.

I realise this is satire Sylvia, however here in woketard, ultra liberal Melbourne, home to at least 9 Universities, there are scores of little wokelings here who take this demented lunacy very seriously indeed. They live and breath this crap; or at least try to from behind their facemasks.
There are now businesses here (two examples – JB Hi Fi and The Body Shop) whose staff now proudly display their preferred pronouns on their aprons.
How did the world get to this point? What happened to basic facts such as there are 2 biological genders: Male. Female. Who is funding these academics who are pushing this rubbish? Soros? The Rockefellers? Ford Foundation? I’m so damn tired of it.
On a tangent, shops here in Melbourne are now asking for card only payments and refusing to accept cash. I walked out of a shop couple of days ago when they wouldn’t accept my cash for a custard filled pastry and insisted that card only payments was store policy. I saw another shop last night with the same sign. It seems here in Australia, stores can legally refuse cash payments and accept digital only payments as long as they make that clear prior to the sale and display a prominent notice saying this.
We live in surreal times.

They seem to be using this exact template in the cities.

However recently some die hard ‘card only companies’ has now started excepting cash.
That massive amounts of lost busine$£ and complaints got back to HQ.

They did the same thing with vaccine mandates here in Australia. It was individual businesses that started the no jab, no job company policy and pretty soon lots of companies were mandating jabs for their employees. The Govt then sat back and said “we’re not mandating vaccinations and we don’t interfere in the running of these companies” etc etc. I suspect the same thing will happen here with digital only payments and its a bit tricky here in Australia given its not illegal for these companies to refuse cash payments. Yes, I know, we need to boycott these places. The Australian Reserve Bank announced recently that they will be trialing a CBDC digital currency within the next year.

With The Body Shop, given their track record and modus operandi and who their staff are… I would not be surprised at all if it was company policy. With the others I’ve seen, I think it may be personal choice however there was the recent example of Halifax Bank in the UK where scores of customers closed their accounts after the bank promoted this woketard bullshit. Its nothing to do with “misgendering” or “inclusivity”. It’s a push towards transhumanism. That’s what this is really about.

“Tarnation”….. I am thinking: Beverly Hillbillies……. Out of the blue.

Never thought much about the French while growing up in blue collar Irish Catholic Chicago suburbia.

The weird kids took French language in high school.

Now I see them as heroes!

My only real connection to them was the “French underground” in the “Hogan’s Heroes” TV show. Besides their tower and Lindberg flying there, that is.

Only 2 genders in today’s society?!

That’s HEROIC.

Thank you Sylvia for a light-hearted diversion from the heavy reading that makes up so much of today’s fare.

I must add that I am an old product of a British education system (but in Africa) with its teaching methods’ reliance on painful consequences for confusing nouns, verbs and sentence-ending prepositions. Pronouns, by comparison, were quite straightforward.

With that background, your writing seems to me like a beacon of hope for defending.
my native tongue against the assault by the Quebec language police.

Nothing against the French language though, I learned it at school and spoke it myself, sometimes exclusively, during travels in Francophone Africa in more normal linguistic, if not always tranquil times.

In an era when pronouns, politically correct or otherwise had lower priorities than survival.

My sister lives in Wales, UK, on a farmstead. One of her neighbor’s son came home from what we call middle-school with a list of 40 pronouns to learn. It is totally believable considering the crap that comes out of academia these days; nonetheless, I was momentarily stupefied. I had to look it up. It is even worse. A long long list of a multitude of gender identifies defined by initials and subcategories numbered. Good Grief ! To quote Charlie Brown . But on rethinking, I have decided that the various whoevers who purport these listings as reality are way off. Their number is way too small. Every human being is genetically different, so there are billions of genders, each different. There is you and me and on and on. Zillions actually if you add in those dead and those to come….all different. Maybe it would better in order not to err to just say “hey you” (a favorite appellation of my cat for me) or “this human came in” or “that person went out”. Any descriptive nouns of course are a no-no. Or just use the inclusive ”it”. Perhaps, if one does not want to damage anyone’s sensibilities, one could just keep one’s mouths shut, pens silent…..

But that wasn’t Justin, but Pierre Elliott, then Prime Minister and father of our now Prime Minister.

Perhaps I skimmed the comment thread so quickly and carelessly that I missed it, but I’m surprised that no one made the virtually obligatory observation that it’s far more likely that Fidel Castro, and not Pierre Elliott, is the father of the odious PM.
_____________________________________________

The “nine genders” reference prompts me to post a link to a curious page I checked out months and months ago while investigating the burgeoning social phenomenon of the newly-expanded gender spectrum. I don’t know what “Tumblr” is, nor can I discern the author and/or source for the content. 

Is this “for real”, whatever that means? I can’t even tell if it’s a spoof or put-on, but if it isn’t I shudder to think of anyone buying into it. If anyone has any clues, I’d appreciate hearing them:

Lovely, lovely, lovely. Can a person (that’s a noun, folks) laugh and cry at the same time?? Grunting and howling (and caterwauling) sounds good to me, I mean sounds like a good alternative to me. It would be better, at least, and more grammatical, than using plurals when referring to an individual. I am not a “they” or an “it” either! My preferred pronouns, I’ve told my husband (he/him), are “F* You.” Now, I haven’t exactly had the nerve (the balls?) to make this widely known outside of a circle of intimate (in the colloquial, not the sexual, sense of the term) friends, but he (my husband) finds my choice of pronouns so amusing and apt, he has made them widely known. A small way of spreading humour, if not good will, in a humourless world.

https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2022/sep/16/kenneth-branagh-is-boris-johnson-brace-yourself-to-relive-the-pandemic-with-this-england

And so it begins. “The Pandemic” gets the Hollywood treatment. Four words from the opening paragraph are all you need: 

 “a staggering death toll”

From a bit further on, “We’d never seen a pandemic before.” (We still haven’t.) 

“Cynics” are dealt with:

“Winterbottom talks about what he calls the “discounting” of daily deaths: “‘It’s only people who are older,’ or, ‘It’s only people with underlying conditions.’ That discounting is wrong.”

So that’s that settled then. 

“Kenneth Branagh plays Boris Johnson … who nearly dies of Covid and thereafter gets out of breath chasing his dog.” (I’ll bet they really dwell on that scene with rising ominous – and yet somehow gleeful – music!)

“Dominic Cummings and his wife Mary Wakefield go about their business, …their story juxtaposed against appalling, almost panic-inducing scenes of ordinary people unable to see their loved ones as they died, shouting in the street.”

Concerning these “ordinary people”, they are “anonymised and fictionalised, but most are quite specifically drawn from people or families we met.”

The director Michael Winterbottom (how that name tempts me!) says,

“My mum died in 2020, not of Covid, in a hospital in Blackburn, where I’m from. It was when different rules applied to different areas and Blackburn was still in lockdown. So we weren’t allowed in to see her for those last nine days of her life.”

You might have thought that experience would have led him to ask some entirely different questions.

And immediately, a decision. With clear hate speech, not cowardly mouse chirps and vague words, let’s face the machine. It’ll help, won’t it?

Your word wave builds, rises like a tsunami, flooding me with awe and hope. “People” “just” “should” – and then all the true hard epithets spoken 100 billion times, in addition to the perfectly correct description of the power bullies on us. Clear, right, short.

And verbal opposition is just a start, because these bastards mean business.

Very wise, you have to start somewhere, and what better than a trained two and a half years verbal opposition. The power is in the word; and the word repeated so many times has acquired such a fierce military energy structure that globalists will shudder.

I fucking loathe them

Loathed and devils – it shakes Empires. I’m with you, brother.

I mean, with you on the internet, where you’ll stay in the embrace of your loud words, especially when the fire outside starts burning even harder.

Because all my conscious life I am among people, many people, I work among people, and I am a man of action, which is first and then the rest. I’ve heard a lot of people like you all the time. And it’s funny. They keep saying, “Let’s act, let’s Act!”, and I laugh because I can act instantly, exactly, but I know they’re just talking.

If is for action – a few clear, well-chosen words. But if there is to be a good understanding of what hinders the action, to look for the error; then words are important; to hit the sleeping frog in the swamp. Not – strong words and nothing. I know that cheerleader. “People just have to….” …three fucking years. Please. We are not looking for a way, a new approach, to wake up what is stuck in a stranglehold, but to satisfy the habit of replacing actions with words. And there is no desire to see that we have become an appendage of the same inactivity, through these words that do not work; but it’s Xanax to repeat them at the familiar time of day. And the stronger the words and the emotion… you know that saying:
“a dog that barks doesn’t bite”. 

Once, a while ago, in a group, eventually one of them turned out to be operative worker. A really nasty, cold-blooded bastard, who played so real and with such zest, and evoked such warm sympathy, inspired such confidence that no one could recognize him. He was doing something similar, but much smarter. You’re not, you’re some bum who gives himself a lot of importance.

Let’s see how you get on now, hotshot. Good luck.

Well, I can’t say I’m not a little ashamed of this response to an already deleted exchange of pleasantries with Patrick, who, in addition to describing much of today’s reality very accurately, is also not known for being too polite and tolerant of things he disagrees with. But so it happened, then, on the 17th; with exaggerations and excessive insults; yes, not a cause for pride. I also do not possess a magical solution for increasing literacy and awakening to action of the sleeping part of the people.

Except for that, as you point out, the description in my comment I think is pretty close to reality in general, not to anyone in particular.

Some thoughts on the subject; unfortunately, messy, because I do not have the gift of order.

The natural sex and the pressure to vitiate it is a serious matter and a major part of the globalist puzzle of “great” resеt-ers.
The natural sex (which is the sex determined by what created things; but here there are many enlightened atheists beloved in the propaganda story of Origin:)) refers to reproduction. So, nothing more, that’s what it exists for.

/Pleasure, addiction, diversification, and thinking about sex itself is just a deviation, and a tragic deviation that many of us love very much. I admit that I’m quite deviant – !only on the heterosexual spectrum! – I have a good appetite and a lot of fantasy; not to tell you…
It is no accident that the suppression of sexual desire is central to religious systems, and in various spiritual teachings sexual energy is a major key to achieving spiritual development (at least it is advertised as development). But in each of these systems, the mastery of sexuality is central. You know, “the stream that flows along the Seven Hills; The rise of Kunda”, I think I saw here some old practitioners or at least familiar with things or interested in them. Sex is clear what is fundamental – both in the secular and spiritual sense – and why it is an integral part of life itself (in spiritual teachings it is even said that sexual energy is the energy of life).

I, knowing a decent number of longtime practitioners, have never seen this cultivation, which is their goal, achieved. But I see, as many see, mostly people who have achieved the opposite of the spiritual growth they set out to achieve.

I’m a fan of seeing how simple, deluded, corrupt I am, how proud and vain I am, how I attach non-existent importance to myself. Not for anything; not even for the idea that this humility of the passions will bring me any harmony or anything like that. This idea, if there is one, is surely cleverly at the bottom and destroys humility.

Just like the religious belief that after death you will have a better place to do more good, it destroys humility and introduces a worrying accumulation of points.  I have no doubt of this, as – for myself – I have no doubt that I am far, far from that virtue and goodness necessary to a good place. Because I know for many,, and I have the honor to know some truly virtuous people who have for many years done rivers of good for other people. So, here, deeds are an objective comparative basis; and whatever there is or is not after death, I accept that nothing good is due to me. I’m dying and then – it’s either nothing or nothing good. And then what, where to pour my life-giving energy?

Most people have no dilemma at all, immersed in their simple atheism, unbelief (not in anything concrete, but in the whole idea of something beyond their the foolishly limited materialistic understanding; nothing more and nothing beyond). But this does not cancel out the reality of what they are, what reality is, and their interaction by laws (of which the ‘discovered’ “natural laws” are part, the discovered part of all that is). So, they will get the exact result of their thoughts, feelings, and actions, according to their interaction with the laws of reality, not their limited vision of reality. Comparisons can be made countless, but does it make sense – how much simpler can it be said?

…So; I put what I have, what I am, into what my life is. Which is assembled from a multitude of Things inspired by a multitude of factors. And the environment offers a limited number of certain chutes, luring my life to flow through them. And sexual stimulation is one major chutes.

I think the clothes have done a good job; I wonder what European civilization would have been like if it had had fewer clothes throughout its history; even those mental clothes, so hateful to many, of the church-imposed consciousness of mortal sin over sexuality. What would civilization be like today if this current level of sexual stimulation existed continuously throughout history? If people throughout history were as mature and aware of the reality of sexuality, if they were as open-minded, with so much less inhibition, as they are today?

Or, to put it another way, did sexual oppression and abstinence create the conditions for the development of European civilization, directing sexual energy up the spine to irrigate the soil of the brain? Which leads to a better understanding, which calms the passions of the body to a greater extent.

(Or perhaps it is the opposite, and the age-old oppression of sexuality, mainly under the boot of the church, has prevented man from unfolding, from being fullyvalued, from being liberated, and from discovering his full potential. A whole concept imposed in more recent times by The New Age movement, manifested in the sexual revolutionization of the patriarchal model. And to this multi-cult sex today.)

How far would this development towards internal harmonization go if one ate in the most useful way, if one had a full hand in the most correct development, if one had at his disposal the best technologies (but also of those that have fallen away, such as Tesla’s), and all in a compact whole? Has it been directed, especially hard in the last 100-150 years, within precisely defined limits, harnessed like a horse that, driven by its drivers, has by its own strength brought the carriage to where it is today?

This, we may imagine, might lead to a natural reduction – naturally, not forced – almost to the sex life necessary only for reproduction; and, I dare say, to a general natural diminution of the natural tendencies described as mortal sins in religion. They are mortal because they prevent the raising of the life-force to the brain, the irrigation of it, and the subsequent harmonization, the maximum approximation to that form by which man best meets the requirements of the laws. (Natural laws, physical, objective, and everyone may call them as he pleases; the laws that are, of which our known laws are a part; unless one not to dreams that we know everything)

Is it inherited? How and how much can it develop?

This, if allowed to happen, may leave no room for the dominant power elite. It must be directed; it must be fed; it must be undermined; and, above all, it must be used. And fed by this super-atrophied love of the material; with pseudo-rational views forged in narrowness; excited by destructive sexual propensity and liberality; here we are, until the “final solution”.

How widespread are these “values” of the “Enlightenment”, “mature modernity”, a kind of freedom from “religious shackles” and I do not know what; that is at the center of the Western (which is now global) mind “without delusions; everything on the table”; which, besides being ridiculous, is tragically untenable and is exactly freedom, which is slavery.

So, against whom / what is war? Whoever accepts the above and grows in this form, there is no war against him (no matter which side he is nominally on).

The war is against development; therefore, the destruction of the possibility of taming sexuality and reducing it naturally to its normal functions by allowing for sexual corrupt and gender variability.

This, imo, lies under the secular sense, and under the narrower sense of ” the forced end of the possibility of reproduction”, to “people dependent for their reproduction on state-corporations”, “on a conveyor belt”. (Are there enough worrying data on intra-uterine mortality, reduced ability to fertilize and conceive among those “rescued by covid”?)

But it looks like we’re beyond the psy-ops phase with the gender, for inciting voluntary perversion. At what stage we are, everyone can decide.

The calculating bastards who launched COUPVID are well-informed about developmental psychology and they plan long-term. Children have always been their main target because they are defenceless, trusting, easily frightened, and dependent on (already systematically de-skilled, screen-addicted and infantilised) “grown-ups” for their very existence. Above all, as the Jesuits famously knew, children are malleable.

Five-year-olds have now spent a full half of their life under this regime — masked, immobilised, antisocially-distanced, kept indoors, taught to fear breathing & breathers, trained to follow Authority unthinkingly, and systematically addicted to screens. The effects may be mitigable but they will not be reversible, or at least not easily. Especially when the effects are actually intended.

Any child born in the last decade is well on its way to becoming an ideal citizen.

The pronoun nonsense is an extension of a tactic that Orwell noted in the appendix to 1984 i.e. that if you control the language people use then you control the way they think. This has been proven by the gradual elimination of the word “conspiracy” from permitted discourse. Of course anyone can still use the word but repeated exposure to a media that constantly ridicules the word has an inevitable effect on the perceived credibility of the word.

The pronoun claptrap is a much more concerted assault on the basic intelligibility of language itself and is therefore far more ambitious. And the fact that it is specifically pronouns which are targeted reveals the basic aim: to attack language in its most informal aspect i.e. to negate everyday speech.

The good news is that the very ambition of the project should surely undermine it. Of course the vast majority of the public will reject it. Much of what I read over on Graham Linehan’s site is novel and bizarre to me as I’m sure it must be to that vast public majority. This echoes the fact that a huge number of them are already indifferent to the labels “Left” and “Right”.

Apologies for the off-topic. This is a great potential danger.
I also have some data on war preparations, but don’t want to make this any longer.

NATO/ RUSSIA WAR ON 9-24-22?

In my opinion NATO may plan to enter the war with a major military action on this date.
My reasons: 

— a meeting in Switzerland featured a map dividing up among NATO & other Western countries the parts of Ukraine which currently appear likely to become part of Russia. This is a thinly-veiled colonization under pretext of “Rebuilding Ukraine:” If everything of value in an area passes into the hands of a foreign power it matters little whether actual sovereignty immediately follows. Further, some of the funds for the “rebuild” are already in their hands– in the form of frozen, confiscated Russian assets.  

https://21stcenturywire.com/2022/07/05/the-big-payoff-ukraine-demands-the-west-pay-750-billion-postwar-recovery-plan/

–16 countries are participating or being bribed with these riches and extensions of territory. Quite a plum for the billionaires and multinational corps and nation-states involved. The risk of military involvement is lessened among so many. The total value of the rebuild is said to be 3/4 of a trillion dollars, and it’s all envisioned as coming from Russia– if necessary in reparations.

— While we’ve noted that Russia participates in the covid vaxx, digital money, etc, this does not exclude its having the same place in the NWO as the Middle East: It has long been planned that the ME is to be looted of mineral and petrochemical wealth while its governments are reduced to prevent resistance. Is the same fate planned for Russia? Thieves fall out at the division of the spoils.

–While we believe the Great Reset to be the driving force behind geopolitical events, rather than TPTB of individual nation-states, the two are not necessarily contradictory forces in this instance.

–Friedrich Merz, German Bundestag on Sept 2: “Dear colleagues this 24 of Sept 2022 will be a day remaining in our memories as a day we will say: ‘I remember exactly where I was’.”
You can hear him say it on Twitter.

Jokes about the Royals previously tolerated and even encouraged are now strictly verboten. And knowing, from 9/11 and covid, how easily “temporary measures” become slyly extended to infinity, I wouldn’t be surprised if this pornographically enhanced “sombre mood of the nation at our recent catastrophic loss” is stretched out and out.

https://de.zxc.wiki/wiki/Kohlekraftwerk_Moorburg

The Moorburg power plant, opened in 2015, was one of the most modern, innovative and efficient coal-fired power plants in Europe. With its two units, it was able to generate 11 terawatt hours of electricity per year, each with an output of 827 megawatts. This was enough for the entire Hamburg region. It was shut down in 2021 after only six years of operation. Now it is to be completely demolished. There is hardly any other example that more impressively illustrates the complete suicidal insanity of German energy policy.

First of all, it is an ultimate MCA in economic and business terms to build by far the most modern, efficient and cleanest coal-fired power plant in Europe at a cost of almost three billion euros – only to demolish it again and dispose of it at great expense.

Above all, however, Germany is depriving itself of an important and flexible factor in its energy security: coal-fired power plants of this type are able to react quickly to fluctuations resulting from the highly volatile and practically unpredictable feed-in of renewables (“flutter power” and the like). They would therefore be particularly suitable in the current situation to substitute our gas-fired power plants.

From a technical point of view and under today’s conditions, especially in view of the existential energy crisis, this destruction of a proven and highly functional technology is a decision that is as ideologically motivated as it is costly. This insane policy of the Hamburg Senate, namely of the Green Senator for the Environment Jens Kerstan, no longer has anything to do with common sense.

Attentive contemporaries are now even asking themselves whether this undertaking might be deliberate political sabotage – with the intention of ruining the already ailing economy, further weakening Germany as an industrial location and concretely endangering internal security?

Btw., Germany also had the safest nuclear power plants in the world before the “globalists” shut them down by the executive hand of their faithful servant Merkel.

This dissolution of education is not a mere distraction and jokes about “pronoun Aps” are not facetious as I have no doubt these Aps are already set to clog up yet more of the dreary cyberspace Sargasso Sea. The pronoun vomit with its accompanying gender melange has been planned as an assault on the upcoming generation as a means of rendering their speech incomprehensible to each other with the aim of eventually reducing the population to barking beasts. Graham Linehan has been monitoring the continuing pogroms of the Trans mafia goon squads – basically conjured up from enlisting every squalid resentful bloated loser with a hankering for underage flesh, all to be discreetly managed by intelligence handlers. Meanwhile the usual lab-coated hacks can be bought off to deliver encyclopaedic volumes of pseudo-scientific blather (decked out of course with any number of colourful charts and graphs) to “prove” that it’s all legit.

Why are you so ashamed of the sexualities that mean that there is a human species still on earth millennia after it emerged.

It wouldn’t be here if the first humanoids were gay, that’s for absolute certain.

The simple answer to ‘I feel excluded’ is ‘You CHOSE to feel excluded by making a positive choice to transition. Stop blaming those who haven’t for your own choices.’

Trans-sexuals can’t have children: that’s the price for transitioning. They will always be excluded from breeding until such a time as you can almost completely resculpt a human body using stem cell technologies etc.

I don’t stop people transitioning but I am sick and tired of them refusing to take responsibility for their choices and making life for the non-transitioning super-majority a daily battle against aggressive-trans-ideology.

Is this moment far away? And, by the way, is consciousness part of the body, is it located in Stem Cells, is what we understand as separate consciousness derived from it? Consciousness, perhaps, is conditionally called “consciousness”, but is actually a function of the nucleus, the bios of hardware (stem cells) through which the body successfully manages its physical life; and that’s all?

Fortunately, none of the people I know seem inclined to wonder what my idea of a pronoun is, so if the subject comes up at all, my usual contribution to the conversation is a contemptuous shrug.

Perhaps contemptuous shrugs can be the new diplomacy?
After all, people do understand them, and if they secretly support the original shrugger in question, they can supportively shrug a contemptuous shrug of their own without risking a prison sentence…

And if they don’t agree with the original shrugger, they have nothing tangible in the way of an accusation with which to assail him.

“He shrugged, Your Honour!”, doesn’t carry much weight even in today’s deranged society.

For perhaps the very first time in human history “There is nothing new under the sun.” There’s nothing more to search for, study, contemplate, or just plain ignore. It’s all been said and done.

So what do humans do when they run out of “things?” They do what they’ve always done: they invent new things. Pretend things. Things that act as surrogates for a reality that’s gone bust.

In this case, new terms and concepts. Humanity never wants to be caught empty handed. No generation wants to be caught “holding the bag.” So they fill up all the old parts of speech with shiny new stuff: new words for…ah, there’s the rub: these new words have no referents in reality. But that’s not a problem for them: reality itself has become multi-tasked.

Soon they’ll need new parts of speech to catalog all the new terms. And new ways to parse sentences. And new ways to read and write.

That’s bullshit, but it’s normal for you, because you need to feel at ease. Reduce power as much as you can to buy comfort away from possible anxiety. And if Patrick approves of you, that’s convincing proof of stupidity.

Do you mean “surprisingly, they’re normal people.” ?

Often when i reread a comment before sending i’m made aware of
how sloppy my thoughts are when written…Then I wonder if i should strive
for the brevity of The Ten Commandments…Then i become vexed, “sloppy”
or “robotic” ? “Better one’s own dis-order than another’s imposed Order ?”

Now that The Queen’s English has reverted to The King’s English (which some would say is it’s rightful owner), will KC defend it against those upstarts in the
American colonies and their invented pronouns ?

Gay couples don’t surprise me. Back in the 70s we had this old couple next door. They weren’t formally married (it was the 70s), they were from an era where they had cops watching out for them. Then there’s the nephew in Amsterdam, getting a divorce (says my daughter). Then there were the couple that lived in the house behind ours for about a decade. They were just another couple from the neighborhood at local functions — two guys, sure, but whatever. There’s probably more I could cite but its not important, they’re just friends, neighbors, colleagues. Who cares? Just remember that those old geezers I first mentioned were living in Manchester and they from the same era as the cops that got Turing. (Now *that’s* personal….)

Only perverts are interested in other people’s sex life or organs.

Authoritarian personalities are twisted like that.

Most of the world is interested in other people’s sex organs.

Part of the pronoun agenda is normalizing perversity and perverse behaviours.

I don’t think so.
Without other people’s sex lives, the media would not exist.
Without sex organs, the Internet would never be able to finance itself.
Without us all being interested in other people’s wobbly bits, none of us would be here.

bagpus missed the point, that HV overstated..

it’s pervo-propaganda, not healthy, natural, self-defining-in-itself libido.

“don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it, ” stuff.

I can see that my comment looks more serious than I intended.
I probably overstated my own flippancy with regard to the matter.
Pilgrim sums up what I really think much better.

Discrimination is prohibited in international and state laws. Human rights are universal.

Criminals do not obey the law. Criminals are breaking the law.

The United Nations and national governments have broken all laws. They have discriminated against humanity on every basis they can find.

They are at war against humanity.

They are criminals, thieves, liars and murderers.

Hello, Human values: I understand your obvious ire over the “criminal” situation, but human rights have never existed in real time. Human “rights” are completely divorced from the reality of human responsibilities. Therein lies the rub…

Human rights exist in reality and most of the time they are respected.

It’s so common and usual to have our rights respected that we don’t even notice it. It’s normal that people practice these quite naturally.

Abuses of human rights are exception.

Like murder is an exception.

Hello. I understand your interpretation of “rights” but your interpretation has been skewed by trained propagandists pushing the false dialog. Respect of others is a human responsibility. It is not a right…

Responsibility should be a normal expectation of behavior, but it is often violated. Murder is such a case…

A psychologist once told me it was my responsibility to not be harassed or raped by men. That it was my responsibility to not go into places where such things might happen.

I never went to see that psychologist again.

Governments don’t “break laws”. Laws are not some absolute truth, they’re rules set out so society can function and they’re made and enforced by — you’ve guessed it — governments.

The notion of “human rights” was a Cold War era invention designed to distinguish “us” from “them”. Its still used in this context. I’m surprised that people believe in it given the evidence to the contrary.

Human rights are universal. There is no division when everyone is equal and equally treated.

Inequality, conflict and war only arise from neglecting or violating human rights.

Societies exist and function quite well without any government. Government is a violent, murdering organization attacking society.

The above is chicken feed compared to this.

“In an unprecedented ruling against free speech and the right to boycott, a judge in the U.S. ruled that Ben & Jerry’s can be forced to sell ice cream in illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank…

I am sure that the alt media usual lot who scream free speeech and all the other alleged free speech warriors will be all over this one, right? Right? Right..?????????

I feel sorry for the kids. Unknowingly being taught more and more useless nonsense to indoctrinate and divide.

agender, androgynous, bigender, cisgender, gender-nonconforming, gender fluid, gender questioning, nonbinary, and transgender) and ten different romantic and sexual orientations (androsexual, skoliosexual, demisexual, gynesexual, polysexual, and asexual, as well as heteroromantic, gyneromantic, homoromantic, androromantic, and skolioromantic.)

If your child is in a school that is teaching them this mess, respectfully, you’re failing them if you don’t pull them out.

Y’know a “Demisexual” means someone who has no interest in fucking a prostitute, and that “Asexual” Is someone who plain isn’t into sex, right? It makes me think that the point is to try and include as much people as possible under the… umbrella. heh

Although, Polysexual, Bisexual, and Pansexual mean all the same thing to people with sanity.

Gender fluid is people who are “woman” one day and “man” the next? or “wham” or “mowan” or whatever on weekends. Bi-gender means you’re both, even though you’re not a fucking hermaphrodite…

This shit is bonkers.

I mean… NOBODY believes it! I think I saw a poll somewhere it listed at 90% don’t… Nobody I’ve talked to in the street does. Only some HS teachers and those HS girls who are so fucking insanely feminine, weak, and shy that nobody even notices they exist.

(No offense, most girls are cool, but they’re like the reverse of the Hormonal, ass-slapping, shove animal porn in your face, grow a ratty mullet, scream ‘HOOOOOOONK’ for no reason males. Those guys at least aren’t woke…)

I was born in Québec and now live in BC. BC is better, but not much. Canada, like Oz and NZ, is where the globalists do their Beta-testing of any new agenda. It pays to watch the shit going down here very closely.
