How British universities spread misery around the world From Nehru’s India to Varoufakis’s Greece

Posted in Educational Freedom, Money/Economy/Taxes on July 24th, 2015

Outside the STEM disciplines, universities are little more than indoctrination centers for economic Marxism, and cultural Marxism. Burn them down. They’ve caused enough death and destruction in the world.

So farewell, Yanis Varoufakis. You used to be Greece’s finance minister. Then you resigned, or were you sacked? You took control of the Greek economy six months ago when it was growing. Yes, honestly! Growth last year ran at 0.8 per cent, with forecasts of 3 per cent this year. The government had a primary budget surplus. Unemployment was falling. Until you came along.

Varoufakis was a product of British universities. He read economics at Essex and mathematical statistics at Birmingham, returning to Essex to do a PhD in economics. With the benefit of his British university education he returned to Greece and, during his short time in office, obliterated the nascent recovery. The economy is now expected to contract by 4 per cent this year — an amazing transformation. Greece’s debt burden has increased by tens of billions and many people have emigrated.

But Varoufakis is not alone. Plenty of other visitors to our universities have been influenced by the teaching here and returned to their countries to wreak havoc.

Dante’s Divine Comedy ‘offensive and should be banned’

Posted in Egalitarianism / Culture Wars on July 23rd, 2015

It is a world-renowned work of literature and one of the foundation stones of the Italian language, but Dante’s Divine Comedy has been condemned as racist, homophobic, anti-Islamist and anti-Semitic.

G̶l̶o̶b̶a̶l̶ ̶W̶a̶r̶m̶i̶n̶g̶ Climate Change and Status Seeking

G̶l̶o̶b̶a̶l̶ ̶W̶a̶r̶m̶i̶n̶g̶ Climate Change and Status Seeking

Well, if you seriously believe that the oceans will rise by 10 feet as predicted by James Hansen, the data manipulator (https://stevengoddard.wordpress.com/spectacularly-poor-climate-science-at-nasa/) — (In other words, believe that it is ACTUALLY GOING TO HAPPEN, as opposed to believing that repetition of this mantra is an inexpensive boost to one’s status.) — then you can pretty easily anticipate where the masses will be fleeing once the oceans rise, and buy property there.

This should be very easy to do, actually.

The problem is, the more you ACT on this belief, the more you will realize it is a bunch of smoke and mirrors directed at gaining political power, and with a long history of being wrong.

Seriously, isn’t real estate on high ground the no-brainer thing to do. If you want to get rich invest. If you want to avert humanitarian catastrophe, then get politicians to build high density housing up in the hills.

The problem is, the more you act on this global warming religion, the more your are forced to confront your beliefs. And zealots hate that.

It is much easier to repeat matras for the purpose of low-cost status seeking without ever having to act on your beliefs.

German-Jewish politician calling for extinction of Germans

Posted in Egalitarianism / Culture Wars, European Union, Immigration, Israel Lobby on July 21st, 2015

Gregor Gysi is the current leader of “The Left” party, currently the 3rd biggest party in Germany. The party formed from parts of the Socialist Unity Part of Germany before the reunification.

In 2013 they have achieved almost 4 million votes or 8.6% of all votes.

Germany currently has the lowest birth rate of the world, ranking in at 0.9 to 1.1 for the native population. This means they are extinct by 2100.

In this video, released on his Facebook page regarding the protest “Live better without the Nazis” he tells Germans they are responsible for the refugee’s well-being because of their history”. He goes on to urge other European countries to accept more refugees and make immigration & asylum easier.

Finally, he calls the native Germans “Nazis”, ridicules them for having a birthrate below replacement level and is visibly happy about their extinction.

He makes further remarks that Germany is dependent on immigration as the native population is dying too fast.

From an outside perspective, this self-hatred of voters in Germany may seem absurd, so I will try to explain:

Firstly, he is Jewish, so he does not identify as a German (or the declining native population he mentions).

Secondly, after the end of World War 2, the allies forced the Germans to accept “a temporary constitution” called the “Grundgesetz”. The Bundesverfassungsgericht (constitution office) ruled last month that all actions against the German people since 1945 are in clear violation of international law. Germany is still, officially, under Allied occupation and we are not allowed our own constitution or government. When Obama paid a visit in 2009 at one of our many American military bases, he told his audience that “Germany is still under occupation and will continue to be so”.

Thirdly, two generations of severe brainwashing have made the Germans self loathing – they are either apathetic or happy about their own demise. There are conscious decisions to not have children or to have children with other races (preferably “refugees”) so “racism” can finally die.

Three Waves of Ancient Genetic Immigration into Europe

Posted in Hidden History, Science / Environment on July 17th, 2015

The first were hunter-gatherers who arrived some 45,000 years ago in Europe. Then came farmers who arrived from the Near East about 8,000 years ago. . . .

Finally, a group of nomadic sheepherders from western Russia called the Yamnaya arrived about 4,500 years ago. The authors of the new studies also suggest that the Yamnaya language may have given rise to many of the languages spoken in Europe today. . . .

The Harvard team collected DNA from 69 human remains dating back 8,000 years and cataloged the genetic variations at almost 400,000 points. The Copenhagen team collected DNA from 101 skeletons dating back about 3,400 years and sequenced the entire genomes.

Both teams also compared the newly sequenced DNA to genes retrieved from other ancient Europeans and Asians, and to living humans.

Until about 9,000 years ago, Europe was home to a genetically distinct population of hunter-gatherers, the researchers found. Then, 9,000 to 7,000 years ago, the genetic profiles of the inhabitants in some parts of Europe abruptly changed, acquiring DNA from Near Eastern populations.

Archaeologists have long known that farming practices spread into Europe at the time from Turkey. But the new evidence shows that it wasn’t just the ideas that spread — the farmers did, too.

The hunter-gatherers didn’t disappear, however. They managed to survive in pockets across Europe between the farming communities. . . .

From 7,000 to 5,000 years ago, however, hunter-gatherer DNA began turning up in the genes of European farmers. “There’s a breakdown of these cultural barriers, and they mix,” Dr. Reich said.

About 4,500 years ago, the final piece of Europe’s genetic puzzle fell into place. A new infusion of DNA arrived — one that is still very common in living Europeans, especially in central and northern Europe.

The closest match to this new DNA, both teams of scientists found, comes from skeletons found in Yamnaya graves in western Russia and Ukraine.

Archaeologists have long been fascinated by the Yamnaya, who left behind artifacts on the steppes of western Russia and Ukraine dating from 5,300 to 4,600 years ago. The Yamnaya used horses to manage huge herds of sheep, and followed their livestock across the steppes with wagons full of food and water.

It was an immensely successful way of life, allowing the Yamnaya to build huge funeral mounds for their dead, which they filled with jewelry, weapons and even entire chariots.

‘Crisis’ hit Zimbabwe wants white farmers back

Posted in Africa, Egalitarianism / Culture Wars on July 17th, 2015

Cape Town – Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe’s government has reportedly indicated, for the first time, that it may hand back land to some white farmers whose farms were forcibly taken away from them during the height of the country’s controversial land reform programme.

This comes a decade and a half after the Zimbabwean government seized large swaths of land from white farmers in the country – a move that saw a drastic deterioration in the country’s economy.
