Something instinctual is triggered by long eyelashes, which is why fake eyelashes work in getting male attention, just like long hair, and other attributes which signal youth, health, and fertility (and femininity itself?) in women.

Saw some Asian women with fake eyelashes at a certain boba place in stinky town; they reminded me of import models.

Berkeley Patriot Surrenders

Subtle coercion by the university.

"Drunk Girl"

The song may appeal to those "traditional" (i.e. social conservative) Americans who love chivalry and to women and feminists who love chivalry but is it too blue pill? Does a man have an obligation to help a drunk girl get home? Why isn't it the obligation of the university or college (if she is a college student) or of her dorm RA? I suppose they wouldn't want such a responsibility, and even claim that they don't have it. But isn't it their job to prevent rape (or regretful consensual sex)? Maybe he should call her parent/guardian. But what if he/she/xe is not living in close proximity? Perhaps every drunk woman should have a tag with the contact info of a designated friend who will take her home.

Would Chris Janson really raise a daughter who engages in such risky behavior?

I find it funny that another of his recent songs is "Fix a Drink."

Never expected the scenario of needing an emergency go bag at church to happen. Now that it has happened, one might think
that it won't happen again and that one doesn't need to prep a bag but that would be bad probabilistic thinking and probably unrealistic as well. Still, even if one has a bag, one has to be able to go to it and not be stuck in the basement, unable to cross the street and get to the car in the parking lot. (Though the cops wouldn't be able to stop one from crossing, and the city wouldn't be liable if one were shot by the armed suspect because one took the risk of crossing.) Without access to the go bag, one has to rely on what one has for EDC, but this is lame California...

An Atomized Existence is Emasculating

The loss of community has more serious consequences for the psychological and spiritual health of men, who are oriented to group formation as a part of the vocation. Women at least have the potential to still have a husband and family; they may lack the larger network of other women who can provide psychological support and help, but being a wife and mother defines their natural vocation essentially. But for men, being in an authentic community with other men is a primary part of their natural vocation.

Peterson is definitely a liberal trying to be a moderate, alt-lite at best. There's a lot of "science" (especially regards to evolutionary biology) here that does need to be examined more carefully -- much of it is probably more philosophy than science.

As for Peterson's Christianity, it is hard to see how he is orthodox. At the very least, he is more of a modern Pelagian, how human beings should activate the divine self from within.

Rod Dreher: Why It’s Okay For Christians To Say ‘Gay’

So "men with same-sex attraction" may be too much to say over and over again, and perhaps some reject "homosexual" as being too reductionistic, but to capiulate to the homosexualist movement in adopting their positive nomenclature? Here is the problem with Deacon Christopher Rober's argument: "alcoholic" does have a negative connotation, naming an addiction or disease (in reality more a moral illness than a mental one). But those who introduced "gay" as referring to homosexual men did so in order to legitimize it. How should one refer too their disordered (or even deviant) subculture and identity, then? Not with the word "gay" as it is anything but.

Apparently the intellectual formation for the "permanent" diaconate in the Roman Catholic churches is deficient.

Monday, August 28, 2017

Two female teachers/staff members were talking about the principal and his indecisiveness on an issue involving a student. One thought he was trying to push off his responsibility on her, instead of making the decision about what should be done with the student. Am I imagining it, or could one could hear the loss of respect/disdain in her voice because he was failing to be a leader? Men may lose respect for a leader but they will do something about it, I would think, treating it as a problem to be solved, with a replacement, etc. The loss of respect would not be as complete, unless some sort of additional vice were involved. For example, if someone was promoted beyond his ability and not because of his pushing for it, there might be little loss of respect by those who were subordinate to him, that is, respect for him as a man. They would put the blame on those who had promoted him. (But if he should lack of integrity in trying to cover up his incompetence or holding on to his office instead of admitting that it was too much for him, that would be reason to lose respect.)

A SJW Utopia?

But maybe they will find something to complain about for the new Star Trek TV series. After all, the Klingons seem to be the primary antagonists in the story, and they appear to be of darker colors, and perhaps even repulsive in appearance.

The Saker's Solution to the Problem of Diversity and Identity Politics

Manipulated Minorities Represent a Major Danger for Democratic States by The Saker

His advice:

Still, equality and reconciliation are the two things which the majorities absolutely must offer the minorities if they want to prevent the latter to fall prey to the manipulation techniques used by those forces who want to turn everybody into obedient and clueless serfs. Those majorities who delude themselves and believe that they can simply solve the “minority problem” by expelling or otherwise making these minorities disappear are only kidding themselves. To ‘simply’ solve the “minority problem’ by cracking down on these minorities inevitably pushes them directly into the warm embrace of the big manipulators, it turns these minorities into a powerful anti-majority weapon. This is the big danger of movements like Alt-Right or the National Front in France – their actions only serve to “weaponize” minorities. Mind you, this does not mean that the concerns and grievances voiced by these movements are without merits, not at all, it’s their (pseudo) “solutions” which are the real danger.

There is only effective way defuse the explosive potential of minorities:

1. Educate minorities and explain to them that they are being manipulated
2. Educate those joining anti-minority movements that they are also being manipulated
3. Offer the minorities a future based on equality and reconciliation
4. Put the spotlight on those who fan the flames of conflict and try to turn minorities and majorities against each other

His solutions are dependent upon the ability of people to be rationally persuaded by such claims.

Peter Hitchens on First Light

Reflections on 'First Light' a memoir by a Spitfire pilot, Geoffrey Wellum

I probably agree with his first paragraph in regards to the "Greatest Generation":

As I grow more and more disenchanted with the myths about World War Two, what do I think about those, such as my own father, who took part in it and endured hardship and danger in defence of this country? Actually, my respect and admiration for them grows. They had all been through the 1930s, that ‘low, dishonest decade’. They had, almost always, a poor political and strategic grasp of the events that were to engulf this country. They had not been prepared in any serious way for what they had to face. Those who suddenly called upon them to fight and possibly die, were themselves too old to face the consequences of their own policies.

But did the Greatest Generation win the war but lose the peace?

Liberalism and Statism

Talk about the error of liberalism is not enough by itself; it goes hand in hand with statism, and those who use it for the sake of amassing power must be discussed as well. Liberalism is the tool of the modern nation-state that seeks to be all-encompassing, and liberal philosophers are useful idiots at the service of the state.

Peter Hitchens:
What were all these things about? Why, personal autonomy. Their central slogan was ‘I can do what I like with my own body and nobody can stop me. How dare you tell me what I can do with it?’

The paradox, well understood by Aldous Huxley, is that the person who proudly yells this battle cry also meekly accepts that in return he must surrender his mind, his privacy and his wealth to the power of the parental state.

In Michael Booth’s book, it all came together in an intentional, deliberate pattern. These things are connected. And it is the absence of the Christian conscience which makes them possible, and which is their enemy and rival. The new all-powerful parental state, the war against the married family, the scorn for conscience, the loud demand for personal autonomy and the rage against those who suggest it is in any way limited by morality or law, are all one cause, reborn in the West since the collapse of the USSR and advancing fast on all fronts. I saw it in Moscow and after my return from there, but instinctively. As so often, my instincts were right, and it has taken long years for my understanding and knowledge to catch up with them.

Catholic San Francisco: Archbishop revamps liturgy institute, hires new executive director by Valerie Schmalz

Woman in charge? Check. Talk about multiculturalism? Check. (Because we have a multicultural Church, not one that has assimilated and inculturated with [Anglo-]American culture and society.) A focus on the intellect (and the imagination) instead of the heart? Check.

I expect this change in direction to fail to stem the shrinkage of the archdiocese. If the institute had maintained its liturgical focus there are a few young priests recently ordained who perhaps could have been recruited to help renew the liturgical praxis of the archdiocese and revivify liturgical spirituality. Now, the institute appears little better than a way to help Catholic nerds get speaking gigs.

How Would Christopher Dawson Redeem the West? by Russell Hittinger


So a musician decided to get two tattoos. Why? Because that's what musicians do? I wouldn't be surprised if her parents were rather permissive in setting expectations in this regard. Given the association of tattoos in women with sexual experience, one cannot help but think that she has lost her v-card. (She apparently is in a relationship with another musician.) Is it possible for musicians to govern their emotions, rather than be governed by them, and still be good musicians (at least with respect to music that plays up the emotions)?

The tats didn't enhance her beauty; another instance of marring what was a masterpiece already.

The change did take the wind out of my sails as a fan, even though her singing continues to mature and her set sounded very good.

I note that an attractive older female (a boomer) who was in the audience had a small tattoo on her wrist. I couldn't tell the precise age of the tat, but it did seem a bit faded.

No Invitation for the Anglican Ordinariate?

The Anglican Ordinariate might not be present in Oregon yet -- it certainly isn't present in northern California, though that may change in the near future.

Still, it might be too much competition for "traditional" Roman Catholics -- however one thing that does need to be done in the Ordinariate is a return to the propers and decreasing the use of hymns in their Masses.

St. Alban

Saint Alban of Verulamium, Protomartyr of Britain by Dmitry Lapa

We firmly believe that the very name of St. Alban predetermined that he became one of the symbols and chief patrons of this country. Let us hope and pray that through his intercession the ancient faith and spirituality will be restored in this ancient Orthodox Christian land.


Unfortunately the title of the video given by the person who uploaded it is a bit misleading as Beale does not spend that much time talking about the alt right.

More likely it will just be about bad white supremacists... let me guess -- an illicit love affair between a white and a black will be a prominent part of the story?

One Thing Needful

Why mysticism is not an “Option” by Thaddeus J. Kozinski

Romano Guardini described, in the 1950s, a neo-pagan totalitarianism that no longer tolerates any threats to its secularist, atheistic, and humanist dogmas, one in which Christians and other theists are called to brook no compromise and live out their Faith all the more integrally and heroically. But Guardini’s prescription for action is something at once more bracing and consoling than Rod Dreher’s.

Yankee Reconstructionist Revisionism

It's Lonely Being Right All the Time

Some paleos may suffer from this but not as much as American Latin Catholic traditionalists? Though Latin traditionalists tend to band together; but do they get along with anyone else?

At any rate...

Does American exceptionalism still have something to offer the world?

Our national religion is a sort of divinely-mandated liberalism that makes politics a matter of securing and advancing the equal freedom to pursue our individual goals. Such a religion gives God nothing much to do once His will is accepted and the system set up. He becomes irrelevant except as an ultimate justification for the structure as a whole.

Mr. Kalb, as far as I know, didn't develop as a Paleo thinker in normal circles, though he is now associated with Chronicles Magazine. But I think paleos may dispute his version of American history and the timeline of the decline.

Exclusive Army Times survey: Most soldiers support the return of iconic 'pinks and greens' uniforms
Overall, survey respondents were in favor of the pinks and greens uniform. However, the uniform seems to be more popular among men.

Any updates?
