“These videos have surfaced of Jerusalem police driving calmly through quiet empty East Jerusalem neighborhoods drenching elementary schools and residences with a putrid liquid with the stench of feces and rotting animal carcass, commonly referenced as “skunk spray”. 972+ has the story. “The skunk water targeted the A-Tur [Mount of Olives neighborhood] elementary school for boys, the elementary and high school for girls, a high school for boys and the ‘Basma’ elementary school for disabled children. All four schools are located on the neighborhood’s main street.””
Of course, Slate ignores the fact that until very recently, Europeans were the only group that divided their vote in a meaningful way. The left is appalled now that Europeans are becoming *slightly* more similar to all other groups — ie. self-conscious and tribal.

Why is the Academy the source of humanity’s greatest tragedies?
It has taken on the power and prestige of the church. Like the church, it is seeped in dogma and quick to denounce heretics. Like the church, it is an aggressive proselytizer, though a more subtle one — “universal higher education.”
As AJ Nock observed, we used to teach Greek and Latin in high school. Now we teach remedial English in Universities. That’s what happens when what used to be an elite, exclusive institute for the able becomes a pulpit for mass conversion to the secular religion of post-modernism.
THE GREATEST TRAGEDY IN HUMAN HISTORY ?
(reposted) (worth reading: replacing the evil religion with what?)
RE: Lawrence Krauss says Religion Could Be Gone In a Generation.
That presupposes that Democratic Secular Pseudoscientific Humanism isn’t also a religion. Which is what he presupposes. And what all of the members of the Cathedral presuppose.
But, all things considered, there is no comparison between Christianity’s unification of Europe, or even the Stoic Schools, and:
1) The death and destruction of Marxism led by the Academy, and the battle against it – resisted by the Academy,
2) Keynesianism (reformed marxism) – led by the academy, and fought by religious groups;
3) The cognitive, social, and normative damage done by postmodernism – led by the academy, fought by traditionalist groups;
4) Anthropological, biological, and social pseudoscience and psychologism – led by the academy and fought by religious and traditional groups;
5) The destruction of the law of property and the common law – led by the academy and fought by religious and traditional groups.
6) The current pseudoscientific justification of democracy – led by the academy, and fought by traditional groups.
7) The destruction of the family – led by the academy and resisted by religious groups.
So if we critically, empirically, rationally, and scientifically analyze the comparative differences, then all that we would find, is that eliminating mysticism and replacing it with general rules, has made more effective workers. But in every other respect, religion and tradition have been superior to rational and pseudoscientific and immoral advocacy by the academy.
THE ACADEMY AS IMMORAL PRIESTHOOD
The academy functions as a religion because its central propositions – other than the nearly accidental success at disassembling the physical universe into general rules – are ALL FALSE.
In fact, physical science used to justify all the other falsehoods of the Pseudoscientific democratic secular socialist humanitarian religion, despite the contrary evidence.
So the Cathedral: the academy and state religion – which persists by profiting both materially and in social status, from the sale of dysgenic reproduction, via the generation of hyper-consumption, and the consequential destruction of the family, is a religion. A reilgion wherein millions of horrid crimes against not only humanity, but western civilization, are justified by but one success – science – over which its fallacies have no jurisdiction.
The irony is suffocating.
So. Yes. It would be wonderful if we could stamp out religion in one generation. Especially the religion of pseudoscientific democratic secular, socialist humanism. Which has finally succeeded in overcoming the christianization of Europe as the greatest tragedy in human history.
I have a wonderful suggestion. Why don’t we return to worshiping, as in, holding celebrations of remembrance for, our heroes in:
1) Our Military generals and our statesmen.
2) Our Philosophers, scientists and engineers.
3) Our Saints, Caretakers, Healers, nurses, and mothers.
4) Our Entrepreneurs, Capitalists, businessmen and laborers who struggle to raise us from poverty to prosperity.
5) Our tribes and families which as kingdoms bear each other no offense, and every possible opportunity to learn.
6) The planet that birthed, raised, loves and nurturers us, and upon which we depend.
Oh. Wait!!! That would mean returning us to our original european religion before the state imposed Christianity upon us by forcing closed the stoic schools and imposing the church upon us, in the same way that the academy and state have incrementally destroyed our churches, and imposed pseudoscientific, democratic secular socialist humanism upon us!!!!
History is the only thing worth celebrating. Our heroes the gods to speak to – meaning pray to. Because if we understand the lives of those heroes well enough, we will find that the answers to our prayers to them are already within us waiting to be heard.
SCIENCE IS THE PRESTIGE – A DISTRACTING GESTURE BY WHICH THE LIARS JUSTIFY THEIR LIES
Science is a ruse to distract us from history. The false dichotomy the liars have created is between the church and science, when it is between history, pseudoscience, and mysticism.
The Propertarian Institute
The feminists aren’t going to touch this one:
. . . because being a serial rapist isn’t nearly as bad as being an accused racist.
Sweden on Thursday became the biggest Western European country to recognize a Palestinian state, prompting a strong protest from Israel, which swiftly withdrew its ambassador from Stockholm.
The move by Sweden’s new left-leaning government reflects growing international impatience with Israel’s nearly half-century control of the West Bank, east Jerusalem and its blockade of the Gaza Strip. It also comes during increased tensions between Arabs and Jews over Israel’s plans to build 1,000 housing units in east Jerusalem.
Blue America has a problem: Even after adjusting for income, left-leaning metros tend to have worse income inequality and less affordable housing.
“However, we must also acknowledge that the classical liberal political system failed upon the introduction of women and non-property owners into enfranchisement. This is because those without property hold very different ethics – if ethics can be used to describe them. And the female reproductive strategy is to bear children and place the burden of their upkeep on the tribe (society). Private property was an innovation, that allowed males to once again take control of reproductive strategy, and the marriage that resulted from that innovation was a truce between the male and female strategies. A truce that feminists and socialists, and communists, and those that lack property, all seek to break. Private Property and the nuclear family, and the high trust ethic are both politically indivisible. And the classical liberal program cannot survive in their absence.
And no one else has provided us with a solution to this problem other than the feminists and socialists – who which to destroy private property, and the anarcho capitalists, who wish to preserve our freedom, and property.”

ISIL/ISIS/IS are actually theoreticians of democracy. Within islamic theology they belong to a historical tradition called khajirites. The khajirites combined radical democracy with literalism. This is why the middle eastern tyrannies are so frightened of them. As anyone familiar with islamic history would tell you the early islamic caliphates viewed islam as a property of the arab aristocracy and opposed mass conversion. The aristocrats were opposed by the khajirites who argued that any man, even a black slave, can become a caliph so long as he has the requisite theological training and is elected.
ACCOUNTABLE AND UNACCOUNTABLE TRUTH
The analytic and cosmopolitan concept of truth (including Popper’s truth), like the levantine pseudo-truth it arose from, is an UNACCOUNTABLE concept of truth.
Whereas the Indo-European truth, refers to testimony given between warriors whose life or death depends upon the veracity of that testimony. Etymologically, “Tréw” means testimony ‘like an oak”: and therefore, ACCOUNTABLE and WARRANTIED truth given via the spoken word.
Conversely, “true” for cosmopolitans, Jews and Muslims means ‘the mind of god’. Not ‘that which I am accountable for speaking truthfully’.
This was the mistake of the analytic movement’s distraction as well. They tried to improve on truth and found all they could achieve was tautology, rather than spending a century on SPEAKING TRUTHFULLY. Popper sensed this, mises sensed it, but they failed. Just as the christian europeans failed, because they assumed truth and assumed that the problem was logical instead of truthful.
This is why the 20th century was such a failure: the operationalist, intuitionists, and praxeologists all FAILED.
So, now, that is my job. That’s our job. That’s the purpose of Propertarianism, Operationalism, and Testimonial Truth: to restore the purpose of philosophy to the SPEAKING of truth – not how to merely investigate the phenomenon of the physical word. Or not how to persuade people without unaccountable for it.
Discovering the truth is just labor, and doing it morally. Speaking the truth is a skill that must be mastered: Speaking operationally. Giving truthful testimony.
