Hey Pennsylvania, What Is Wrong With You?

The midterms are mostly over. Votes are still being counted, and Democrats are acting as though they’ve won just because they didn’t lose as catastrophically as they deserve. Georgia is looking at a runoff, and we’re still awaiting some results. No surprise there. There wasn’t much expectation that it would all go smoothly.

But what I’d like to zoom in on now is Pennsylvania. Oh, Pennsylvania. What is wrong with you?

I do live in Pennsylvania, so it’s not like some criticism from the outside looking in. But just because I’m here, doesn’t mean I know what the people here are thinking. Especially those to the left.

It’s not as though I don’t hear what they’re saying. Every now and then, one of them meanders out of one of our three major cities, expresses wonder and awe at all the “unused space”, then proceeds to bloviate about what he thinks makes a successful society.

But what I don’t have an explanation for is why about 2.6 million of them became party to sending John Fetterman to the Senate.

I know that it’s usually inspirational for a person who suffered from an illness to succeed in spite of that. However, when the illness leaves a person less capable of performing a task where many people are counting on him, then the better choice is to have someone else do the job.

The poor guy suffered from a stroke. During his debate with Dr. Oz, he could barely string a sentence together, and frequently failed to form a coherent response.

Were the Democrats of Pennsylvania simply unaware of this? A lot hinges on the answer to this question. Either the Dems were unaware of the capacity of their own candidate and were therefore uninformed voters, or they were so vote-blue-no-matter-who that they’d be happy to hand a rubber stamp to a seat warmer.

It’s not as though they’ve done Fetterman any favors. Can you imagine the unintelligible internal monologue of someone who has not fully recovered from a stroke? Can you imagine how confused and disoriented such a person would be as they are ushered from one place to another and told what to say?

Considering that the current presidential administration is basically Weekend At Bernie’s, I think we can say that a pattern has been established.

But as bad as that is, it gets worse. Democrat Tony DeLuca won reelection. In spite of being dead.

You may be wondering how a dead man found his way on the ballot. His passing occurred last month, at which point, it was too late to remove him from the ballot. It’s been decided that a special election will be held.

While it’s possible that DeLuca’s reelection was on similar reasoning as Fetterman’s (ignorance or sheer tribalism), it may be that the people voted for DeLuca in an effort to force a special election, not wanting the victory to go to his opponent, who was a third-party candidate.

Third-party candidates sure do have it rough. Their run for office is usually little more than a cynic’s quest. Unless there’s some prize to be won for throwing tons of time and money into an endeavor that ends up going nowhere.

In any case, it’s refreshing to see the Democratic voting base so accurately represented.

Bulbagarden Founder Posits Theory That New Gym Leader Is Trans and Non-Binary, Gets Debunked Less Than 24 Hours Later

It seems like with every new major media release, someone from the questionable sexuality community will come forward with speculation (often stated as fact and foregone conclusion) that a character depicted represents their favorite flavor of sexuality.

As Bounding Into Comics points out, this time around, the speculator is Liam Pomfret, the founder of Bulbagarden, who posits his theory that the newly-revealed gym leader in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Iono, is non-binary and transgender.

Here is the promo video featuring Iono:

Upon what is Liam basing his theory? The initially ambiguous use of pronouns, and her choice of hair dye:

Image from Bounding Into Comics

One would expect the use of such flimsy inferences from an undiagnosed schizophrenic who believes that their TV is communicating secret messages specifically for them, not a Doctor of Philosophy. Our education system is fucked, isn’t it?

Because he was tripping over himself to find trans representation in a Japanese game marketed towards anyone in the family, he looked at the soft blue and pink hair (kinda looks lavender to me) and immediately thought of the trans kid flag, rather than the recurring red/blue coloration of Pokémon’s flagship games, Scarlet and Violet included.

Less than 24 hours later, Nintendo dropped supplemental promotional material concerning Iono. It’s the kind of thing that looks like it would have been released simultaneously with the promotional video that originally featured Iono, so maybe it was hastily thrown together after the fact.

The promo specifies Iono as having the feminine pronoun of “her”. Iono is female. Because we’ve already established that speculation is fun, maybe Nintendo threw this out there because they knew what Liam Pomfret was saying, and we’re all like “Nope. We’re not having that.”

If “Bulbagarden” sounds familiar, then you’ve been following along back when I pointed out how inappropriate it was that they used their Pokémon fan platform to soapbox about an immigration policy that they blamed on Trump (the problem was actually Obama’s fault, and Trump resolved the matter through an executive order).

This was Bulbagarden’s forum header at the time:

Fucking creepy.

And a fantastic opportunity to warn parents out there that there are some predatory actors in fan communities who use their positions in their respective communities to pressure younger members. Oftentimes, their activities involve performing “favors” over video chat. Of course, there are many ways that bad people can take advantage of children online.

That PSA aside, it can also be pointed out that there is a certain obsession with pointing to Japan’s status as a relatively advanced, orderly, and peaceful society. Oftentimes, someone on the radical left will attempt to glom onto a form of Japanese media, in a sad attempt to make the case that the Japanese are actually just like them.

What these attempts overlook is how Japan as a society got to be as advanced as it is. Japan is a heavily structured and stratified society that favors family, career, merit, and respect. To further reduce that, Japan is conservative. In fact, it’s one of the most conservative societies in the world.

Sometimes, a weeaboo pops up who thinks of Japan as being their kind of society, probably because they got ideas as to what it’s like from anime and manga. The fact is, Japan is a society of norms. If you move to Japan, you’re expected to conform to the norms. If you don’t want to, then you don’t belong in Japan. It’s as simple as that.

Red light districts aside, Japan is an advanced, peaceful, and orderly society. If your thinking is different from theirs, that might have a lot to do with it.

Iono is pretty far from the first character from Japanese media to have gotten this kind of attention. It wasn’t long ago that Shiver from Splatoon 3 came under scrutiny as possibly non-binary, but it turned out she was female. Nanachi from Made In Abyss is a frequent target of this, because author Akihito Tsukushi prefers to leave Nanachi’s sex as unknown. Or, more famously, there’s Bridget from Guilty Gear, who is male.

That’s not to say that there are no “non-binary” characters in Japanese media. However, such characters are seldom portrayed as sympathetic. But why would they, when there is something obviously wrong with their thinking?

Iono is merely a character in a work of fiction. She’s just made up, therefore nothing about her has any bearing on the reality of any matter. It doesn’t matter whether she represents anything, except maybe in the deluded thinking of those who lack the ability to parse reality without the assistance of a fictional construct. If this describes you, then you need to seek help. And get over yourself, while you’re at it.

Microsoft Drops NPC Update With New Pride Flag (seizure warning)

Here it is, the new pride flag, according to Microstiff:

I can only imagine the headaches that this new design will cause. An ocular migraine doesn’t look this intense.

What’s more, this new flag looks like a logistical nightmare. Can you imagine all the colors that would have to be used to print these flags, which could end up outside the porches of homes that we tell our children to avoid all across America? Then there’s all the flags that would be rejected by reason of smudging the colors, which would have a high potential of occurring with all the different colors used.

The flag reminds me of Ancient Greece. Not just for the debauchery it represents, but for how similarly the Greeks handled idolatry. They wanted to ensure that they honored every god that they knew. And with how heavily pantheistic they were, they knew a lot of them. It got to the point that some of their cities were so packed with statues, that cities like Athens were said to have more gods than men.

Eventually, people just decided to set up pedestals with plaques that read, “To the unknown god”, in the hopes that, in so doing, they’d honor any god that they may have forgotten to build a statue for.

Perhaps we’re just months away from seeing a new pride flag that just says, “To the unknown sexuality”.

How A Bunch Of Gullible People Are Being Tricked Into Getting Fired

You might have heard of “quiet quitting”, a movement that encourages young people in the workplace to coast by with a minimum of effort, often to the point of accomplishing nothing besides the occasional appearance of working, collecting the pay they feel they’re entitled to for doing little besides heating a chair.

It’s basically another manifestation of class warfare, which has performed yet another sideways shift in their evolutionary ladder.

I’d have imagined that relatively few people would fall for it, as it’s obvious to me that it’s a scheme to trick gullible people into being downsized or outright fired, making the career world less competitive for those intelligent enough to see through the ruse. But as the movement becomes steadily more pronounced, it’s becoming increasingly evident that many are the people who lack the capacity to see the sham for what it is.

I admit that it’s tempting to just keep my insight to myself, as I’m among the many who would stand to benefit from not sharing my workplace with self-centered, entitled morons. But I understand that even among those bright enough to be in my readership there is a chance of making a decision without thinking it completely through. Kind of like the mom who throws old toys away while thinking her son is growing out of them, not being aware that they are a couple decades away from being worth thousands of dollars.

To understand why quiet quitting has become as pronounced as it is, it’s helpful to understand trolling.

A simple-minded interpretation of trolling is that it’s saying something mean online in order to get a reaction. While saying things that are mean is one thing that a person can do to get a reaction, that one simple act doesn’t encompass the whole of trolling, nor is to get a reaction in every case the extent of the motivation of the one doing the trolling.

Basically, trolling involves influencing a person or people into a course of action. The outcome can be as simple as an angry reaction, or as contrived as an elaborate ruse. In many cases, to take humor in the outcome is the primary motivation of the one doing the trolling. But more involved trolling attempts can be campaignesque, involving multiple targets and with multiple trolls acting in cooperation, bearing a resemblance to a psychological operation.

Suppose that someone who is messed-up in the head wants to damage a government building. They could try defacing the building themselves, but there’s a problem with this: there’s way too much potential for negative consequences for the person who would attempt such a thing. If only there were some way to cause some damage, but eliminate the potential consequences against one’s self.

And there is. And this involves convincing someone else to do it. To this end, many influencers band together in subversive communities in an effort to get other people wound up enough that it would be easy to convince them to do what they want.

In terroristic groups such as Antifa, this dynamic permeates their culture. At a protest, when someone wants a Molotov cocktail to be thrown, they just hand one to someone else. The ones handing them out would be the influencers; they try to get other people to throw the Molotov cocktails because they don’t want to be the ones who get in trouble!

If your typical Antifa foot soldier had nerve, they’d hand the Molotov cocktail back and say, “If this is such a great idea, why aren’t you doing it?” Sadly, Antifa goons aren’t known for their strength of character, or their ability to see their cult for the sham it is.

The idea is to get you to do something, so you’ll be the one to face a judge, not the person who manipulated you.

When you understand this dynamic, you’re in a better position to understand the dynamic behind quiet quitting, and see it as a farce that’s designed to trick gullible people into destroying their careers, to the benefit of the influencers who understand the con and are motivated by the simple pleasure of destroying the lives of their victims.

Having said that, I do recognize that every cult has it’s faithful believers, those who actually do believe in what’s preached from the pulpit, and that these faithful believers can sometimes be found in the upper leadership. An example of this is a mod from the subreddit r/antiwork, who exposed himself as a goofball to the thousands of boomers who still watch Fox News:

Having said all this, I doubt that I’ll have thwarted the influencers’ carefully-laid plans in pointing out as much as I have. After all, if someone is so gullible that they’d think quiet quitting is a good idea, they’d probably look at a post this long and think it’s too much reading. It’s not easy to keep stupid people from doing stupid things.

Webcomic Review: Momlife Comics

At first, I wasn’t going to comment on these. One-panel comics aren’t usually worth talking about, and these seemed little more than the meanderings of a woman who is bitter about one thing or another. Then these comics blew up, so I was like, “fine, I’ll acknowledge their existence and write up a review.”

For the setting, try to imagine a curious land in which most people don’t have to grow their own food, but meals are already fully prepared and delivered to peoples homes. Not only is rape illegal, there are no roving rape gangs on the prowl in rusty pickup trucks. What’s more, the homes are crisp and cool inside in the summer, and when there’s snow on the ground in the winter, the homes are warm inside, and glowing display screens deliver limitless free entertainment on demand.

But, there’s a catch: human nature remains mostly the same. The human adaptation to conflict that has been cultivated over the course of aeons still remains. Therefore, the people started questioning their idyllic peace and halcyon luxury. Then, grumblings came, acknowledging first world problems as though a prize awaited the cynics: “My coffee is too hot”, “thirty seconds is too long for an initial boot up”, “my delivery was delayed until tomorrow”.

At the center of this maelstrom of abject ingratitude is one housewife and her adversarial relationship with her husband. That’s right, we’re reviewing Momlife Comics.

Momlife Comics was written by Mary Catherine Starr, who gives us the first hint of her politics by listing her pronouns in her bio. Because her pronouns apparently weren’t already evident from the fact that she’s a mom. She also made a BLM statement, so you know that she’s not racist.

Wow, how stunning and brave, considering the current political zeitgeist!

Mary’s IRL husband is aware of the comics, and is okay with them, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he did a Jack Murphy and wrote up an article touting the benefits of cuckolding.

Let’s start this review off with the most famous cartoon in the series so far:

Both are valid uses of the peach, and the one who gets to it first decides what happens to it. But notice that the build-up is the woman thinking about someone other than herself. How dare that man want to eat something that he paid for, from a table he paid for, in a house he also paid for!

Wow! Look how much more work that woman is doing! Patriarchy and such mushuggunah!

The missing context: the woman took all the bags, leaving the man to bring back just one. Was she aware that she could take multiple trips to the car? She’s likely to smoosh something if she tries carrying in that much at once.

Pattern established: Woman imagines some rule, but doesn’t tell man about it. Woman then gets angry at man for breaking the rule he didn’t know about.

Another pattern established: Woman gathers everything to herself, leaving nothing for the man to do. Woman then complains that she does everything.

Mary also does comics where she reverses the gender roles, which is supposed to be clever because she leaves us to determine the irony without beating us over the head with the obviousness of the point that she’s trying to make.

Get it? Because men are generally more career-focused, and women tend to be more family focused? Though it’s hard to say definitively whether Mary intended to throw shade on the fact that men and women are different, and that because of these differences they tend towards different life choices. It might be that she’d prefer a world where they made similar choices, even if that meant less excuse to hear the sound of her own voice, complaining.

I wouldn’t put it past her to complain about the rain as though she’s blaming someone for it.

Mary is such a victim in her own mind that she even sees herself at fault for bringing her own children fast food. Or are her children the only ones in the universe who would complain about fast food? Sure, it’s garbage, but kids don’t know that.

It was my intention to review this webcomic, but I instead feel tempted to psychoanalyze the author, as her comics have given a window into the soul of a troubled woman. It’s obvious that from an impressionable age, someone was able to sell her a victimhood narrative, and this resonated with her life in the hard streets of sheltered suburbia.

Since her webcomic got noticed, she produced this comic in an answer to the trolls:

Along with a notice that she’ll block trolls. Which is a mistake, because it’s a reaction that trolls look for, and they’ll take any that is any indication that they’re getting to someone. And the above comic accomplishes this masterfully.

As far as art quality goes, Mary is evidently of the opinion that if you only do one thing right, you’ve got a comic. In Mary’s case, that one thing is body proportions. Aside from that, everything is wrong. The thick, inconsistent line art, the lack of facial features, everything is just wrong. Maybe Mary can draw better than a toddler. But bring elementary school students into it, and she’s out of her league.

Okay then, let’s grade this pile. Momlife Comics gets a score of 2.6 out of 10.

Gentlemen, I know that the dating game is flawed. But tread carefully. Getting hitched to the wrong woman can be quite taxing.

One of the classic signs of an abusive relationship is joking at the expense of one’s spouse in public. These comics give ample cause for concern.

Jane’s Revenge Are Trolling Victims

Trolling got its name from the fishing technique that simulates movement. Illustration by Kanzaki Hiro.

Normally, when you think of a domestic terrorist, you think of someone who is only fit to be hung, drawn, and quartered. You don’t normally think of them as someone to be pitied. But when it comes to the typical foot soldier for the emergent terror group, Jane’s Revenge, there might actually be something there to be pitied.

If you don’t know who they are, Jane’s Revenge is a domestic terror group committed to attacking women’s support centers that offer services other than abortions. The terror group is sperging out over the Supreme Court’s decision to honor the tenth amendment of the Constitution by allowing states to decide for themselves the legality of abortion, which doesn’t change anything for the blue states where the majority of abortions are conducted. But Jane’s Revenge isn’t happy unless they are making everyone’s choices for them, all while complaining that anyone who disagrees with them are authoritarian. Except that they’re incapable of being happy, in any case.

Since the ruling, they’ve largely kept their bullshittery limited to vandalism, but they’ve also made explicit threats of harm, with phrases like, “If abortions aren’t safe, neither are you”. Incidentally, they still haven’t been officially designated as a domestic terror group, which goes to show that the designation has no meaning. Or that a group isn’t considered a domestic terrorist unless their ideology goes against the deep state and the establishment uniparty.

So, you might be thinking, why pity them? And I admit, they sound just right for the wood chipper. But to get into why they can be pitied: I think they’re being trolled.

Think about it; domestic terror groups such as Antifa are about getting other people to do things. Their online communities are largely provocateurs that want something done, but they don’t want to face the consequences.

So, they put someone else up to it.

And, as it so happens, there is a seemingly-endless supply of stupid people who are easy to exploit. These useful idiots get pissed off that their political team ended up getting an “L”, so they meander over to a community for Antifa or Jane’s Revenge, where they can get their fill of intoxicating rhetoric from the influencers (who might not even live in the United States). These influencers tend to be quite patient, playing the long game as they groom their victims, who eventually reach the boiling point.

Then, all the provocateurs have to do is sit back and watch as someone else commits the crimes. And if that person gets punished for it, the provocateurs find entertainment in this, as well.

And the saddest part of it all is that the useful idiots sincerely believed that they were thinking for themselves, and that the ideas that the influencers fed to them were their own.

Sorry, it gets sadder. Fact is, there are many, many stupid people out there that can be exploited in this manner. So many, that they’re impossible to avoid. Think about all the people who live in cities who collect checks from the government, even though they don’t actually contribute anything of value to society, all while in a sad state of illusory superiority. Most people think of the Army as the place a person could turn to when all other prospects aren’t looking so great, but the Army rejects those with an IQ of less than 83, which is ten percent of the population. One-forth of Americans believe that the Apollo lunar landings were a hoax. One-third believe that the 9/11 terror attacks were an inside job.

See what I mean? Stupid people are everywhere. And for the influencers, that means plenty of chumps to exploit. And if all they get out of it is entertainment, and the knowledge of being the one that influenced a nutcase into actually killing someone, that’s something they wouldn’t lose sleep over.

At Antifa “protests”, it’s not the provocateurs that throw the explosives. Instead, they hand them out, so someone else will have to deal with the consequences that come with throwing them.

Can the chumps be pitied? Considering that they are likely only being used as tools, maybe. Are they still only fit to be hung, drawn, and quartered? I don’t know, but if someone is that gullible, it’s hard to imagine that they can turn their lives around and become someone that contributes value to society.

Diversity Works Better Without Top-Down Control

One of the talking-points that comes up in politics is diversity. Particularly, racial diversity (though, as my smarter readers are aware of, there is more to diversity than looking different). In this area, the left (particularly Democrats) love to boast that they’re the pro-diversity party, even going as far as to pretend that their rivals are opposed to diversity, as though they themselves were always diverse, all along.

However, that’s a misconception. But it’s a misconception that they’ll feed into, knowing that it benefits them.

The fact is, both sides of the American political climate are for diversity. The difference between them is in how diversity is achieved.

First, the right (usually represented by the likes of Republicans and Libertarians). The American political right believes that diversity should come about naturally, and to this end, a person’s race should not be considered in their endeavors.

Ideally, an employer should consider a candidate based on their merits. If this were the case, people of different races will be present in a large enough business by virtue of the fact that no race is being purposely excluded. Likewise, a college considering an applicant should consider the potential student based on the likelihood that they’d succeed in the environment, without regard to the applicant’s race. Under these conditions, diversity on campuses wouldn’t just be likely, they’d be expected.

Practices that discriminate based on race, such as racial steering and block-busting would be illegal, as they would exclude qualified candidates and applicants based on race.

The left, as exemplified largely by Democrats, has a different approach when it comes to diversity. Their difference in approach provides an excellent illustration in how their political philosophy as a whole differs from their opponents.

The left’s approach when it comes to diversity involves achieving diversity through top-down intervention.

Rather than allowing diversity to occur naturally, the left prefers to pressure employers and institutions to achieve diversity with quotas. As the left would have it, the representation of each individual race in each setting must be consistent with their own ideal of how each race should be represented. Whether this is through equal representation of each race, or consistent with each race’s representation in the general population, the left isn’t always clear.

When you understand the left’s tendency towards top-down controls, even on the societal level, you’ll have an easier time understanding why social engineers tend towards the left.

When you consider the left’s tendencies towards top-down societal controls, the implications should give you the chills, especially if you’re of the opinion that each individual should have the freedom and autonomy to determine for themselves how they live their lives.

And I would think that most people would prefer to make choices for themselves, such as which car to buy, without having the selection limited by a governing body they does not understand the nuances of an individual’s decisions. And, for that matter, an individual should have freedom of choice as to who their spouse would be, without having their selection limited based on race, provided their selection consents. And the couple should be free to produce the number of offspring that they choose, without external manipulation or intervention.

In fact, any form of external manipulation or intervention in any of these choices should absolutely not be tolerated.

However, the left is of a different mind. They are generally more favorable of the idea of top-down control on the part of the government, even as far as engineering society into the shape of their preference. This is in stark contrast with the right, which favors limited government, by principle.

The right tends more towards libertarianism, while the left tends more towards authoritarianism. As one examines their respective policy positions, this becomes evident. The moniker of liberal really doesn’t fit the left very well.

If we were to examine the American political right in good faith, it would be apparent that they desire diversity. Not only that, they have a far superior way of achieving it, which involves a stronger society, by reason of important roles going to the best qualified, rather than to diversity hires.

The left might try to paint this as a pretext for racial discrimination, but there wasn’t much expectation of an argument in good faith from those lacking moral absolutes. While that may sound like a cheap shot, it holds up with the observation that a larger representation of leftists are of the idea that human government is the highest level of authority, and that there’s no truth but power. But that’s an issue for another essay.

Anti-censorship Mangaka Wins Seat In Japan’s House of Councillors

In a huge culture war victory, mangaka Ken Akamatsu has just won a seat in Japan’s House of Councillors. He ran as a member of Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party, and became the first mangaka to win a seat in said house.

By the way, Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party is similar to America’s conservatives, and a mangaka is an author of Japanese comic books.

This is a culture war victory because Ken has strong anti-censorship views, particularly concerning manga (Japanese comic books). He’s of the opinion that if westerners are interested in manga, they should have them as the author intended. He was also outspoken against proposed legislation which would have outlawed many doujin (unofficial, independently-made manga) because the legislation in question would have been overly strict in handling copyrights, and made no distinction between drawings and photographs when it came to depictions of nudity.

Considering this, it seems likely that Japan’s mangaka are going to continue to hold strong in resisting western pressure to adopt woke themes in their work, and with a mangaka now championing them in public office, their position is getting stronger.

Because Japanese entertainment is free of woke themes, many are turning to manga and anime as an alternative to the politically-charged comics and cartoons produced by western entertainment companies. Foreign influencers recognized that this is happening, and have attempted to include manga and anime in their sphere of influence, to various degrees of failure.

It was just last year that the president of Kadokawa expressed his belief that manga was more extreme than swimsuit content, and that he wanted the company to change so it would be more likely to be reviewed by western tech companies like Apple and Google. Because his words had the potential to cost his company a lot of money, he was made to take a pay cut, which included paying back back-pay.

Prior to his election, Ken Akamatsu was most famous for Love Hina, a comedy about a boy who made a promise to meet a girl again upon attending a prestigious university, but forgot her name. As he studies for the entrance exam, he becomes the manager of a girls dorm.

It stands to reason that those in the creative arts would take less kindly to attempts to censor them, but things aren’t always so straightforward. With western media companies, it’s usually the companies that have creative control over IPs, and the IP creator usually sides with the media company because they don’t want to risk losing involvement with their own brainchildren. Western media companies tend to bow to vocal minorities, in part because they wish to avoid the potential for negative publicity, but also because western activists tend to be entitled and belligerent. Worse yet, western media companies tend to lack either courage or principle.

Japanese media companies tend to be more principled, and what’s more, because the manga industry is highly competitive, mangaka tend to make fewer choices that would risk alienating their audiences.

Principled and based.

Japan now has someone in their House of Councillors to represent mangaka and those who read manga, and he has a strong anti-censorship position. The woke mob continues to lose ground.

Watch the Georgia Guidestones Get Wrecked

Ladies and gentlemen, for your viewing pleasure, the Georgia Guidestones being destroyed:

I prefer to call them the Georgia Geldstones, because they’re sometimes referred to as the “American Stonehenge” by those whose pet ideology involves tricking young boys into having themselves neutered after convincing them that they’re actually girls. However, the Georgia Geldstones are a Stonehenge in the same way American cheese is a cheese: it’s a shitty failure.

No one knows for sure who set the Georgia Geldstones up, but it’s believed that their anonymous builders intended them to be a lasting set of instructions for how to manage the world after a nuclear war. Whether a nuclear war is specified or not, it’s still troublesome that one would believe that they’d be an ideal set of instructions for how to manage a global society, at all. That’s because the first set of instructions involved setting the global population to a very low number:

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.

As of this posting, there are around 8 billion people alive. So for the Neuterati to achieve their vision of an ideal society would take a shit-ton of murder.

Then, as if it weren’t already clear that the Geldstones were set up by the kind of shits you wouldn’t share a lunch table with, here’s the second commandment of their blighted religion:

2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.

Ideally, people decide for themselves who they partner with, and how many offspring result. To say so wouldn’t be telling any decent person anything they didn’t already know.

However, the Neuterati have their own ideas for how you live your life, and they want to make your most personal decisions for you. This makes them your enemy.

The real Ten Commandments concern personal conduct, including commands not to murder, steal, commit adultery, or bear false witness. None of the ten commandments of the Georgia Guidestones mention anything of the sort. It might be that the people behind the Guidestones have a problem with the real Ten Commandments. Or maybe they prefer to recraft society in its own image, and then proceed to micromanage every human being.

Most of the rest of the commandments on the Geldstones aren’t terribly noteworthy, and may even fall into platitudes that don’t mean anything. However, the tenth acknowledges “nature”, the Moloch of the secular age:

10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

I stick to my own kind: the human kind. Any reasonable person would. In contrast with this, the Neuterati view humans as a problem. They have declared war on mankind, and have placed their manifesto in plain sight.

The Neuterati have their own religion. “Nature” is the name of their god. “Sustainability” is the name of their altar. The scalpel is the sparagmos with which they tear our children apart. And the Georgia Guidestones were among their graven images.

Until they were destroyed.

Beavis and Butt-Head Discover That They Have White Privilege

It’s been a decade or two since I’ve watched Beavis and Butt-Head. I thought that, after the initial attempt to revive the series, that was it. As it turns out, there’s more coming, and it seems the two are going to college.

Considering the current college environment outside of trade schools, it’s easy to picture them as places where they belong.

I also don’t remember them being this funny. The clip below is of the dimwitted duo discovering that they have white privilege. They then proceeded to interpret it their own way.

“THIS RULES!”

It flew under my radar, but just days ago (on June 23, 2022), a new Beavis and Butt-Head movie was released on Paramount+, called, Beavis and Butt-Head Do The Universe. What’s more, two seasons of the Beavis and Butt-Head TV show are in production, also for Paramount+.

If the new Beavis and Butt-Head episodes are going to be this hilarious, I might give them a watch.
