The Breaking Of The Western Mind

What Happens When a Society Stops Being Able to Think Critically?

Once upon a time, a man boarded a flight to his chosen destination and on arrival went to collect his liggage, only to find he had arrived safely but his luggage had not. Enquiring of the airline staff: “Is my luggage lost?” he was told “No, sir, it is not lost just cannot be located.”

“But that makes no sense,” he complained. “Either it’s here, or lost.”

“We don’t consider a bag lost until it can’t be found for three months. Then you can file a claim, because we can’t find it.”

“But you can’t find it now!” he shouted. “My luggage isn’t Schrodinger’s cat!”

He had entered the Kafkaesque world of politically corret bureaucracy, a place where Orwellian Newspeak and Doublethink have replaced claOrwell,rity of thought and expression and  reason and logic are pointless. Bureaucracies have always run on equivocation, obfuscation and rationalizing logic, a type of logic so rational it ends up being illogical — and that’s what the airline was doing: the bag isn’t lost, it just can’t be found. A thing can exist and not exist all at once — as long as the system says so.

“But if a thing exists but is not where it ought to be and cannot be found, isn’t that the definition of its being lost?” you might well ask.

And yet we see the same effect in all aspects of life. The rules say it is one thing, our common sense tells us it is another.

But: should we run a society like this? Can we be said to be thinking , much less civilized or reasonable people ,  if we prioritise rules and procedures over common sense. Are we all becoming like the man who a few years ago, drove is car off the dockside as North Shields, UK, and into the sea because his GPS navigation system told him to keep going straight ahead?   What happens when we start equivocating notions like right and wrong, left and right, true and false? And is this not happening now? Think of the logical and verbal contortions of politically correct thinking.

Let me give you three examples.

In the USA 1500 children were reported missing in 2017. Were they lost, run away, abducted by aliens? After a hue and cry journalists informed the nation that in fact the children were not lost at all. Their details merely could not be found in the information retrieval system.

Apparently their caregivers had not filed routine reports saying, “Yes I am the caregiver for Child A and he / she lives at my home. Never mind the reports of children being sold into slavery and disappeared by sex traffickers (which does happen but usually involves third world kids,) these children managed to pull off the near superhuman feat of existing and not existing at the same time. OK, some kid might be standing right in front of you, wanting a snotty nose wiped or demanding food or something, but if that child’s details are not u to date in the system that child no longer exists.

Equivocating logic: the kids exist in reality and don’t exist in law all at once. Already we are in the realm of the absurd, aren’t we? They’re Schrodinger’s kids, apparently, and like his cat they can be alive and dead at the same time because of quantum physics. Which one is it: do the kids exist or not exist? After all, they are human beings, not quantum wavefunctions — they can’t do both.

But this simple enough question appears to have no answer. Why? Well, note what civil servants who lost the kids did not do. They didn’t go out and verify with the caregivers whether a) the children did actually exist and b) they were accounted for. In other words, they did not investigate, verify, confirm, or corroborate any kind of human reality, they assumed the system must be correct. The man who drove his car into the sea at North Shields also assumed the system must be correct instead of believing the evidence of his own senses.

The airline official who reported the lost bag not lost was also guilty relying on the system rather than personal intelligence “Sir, no one has entered your bag as lost in our system yet, therefore, it is not lost but it in transit by a different route. If it is made of sapient pearwood you have nothing to worry about other than they way people start avoiding you when you have worn the same underwear for several days.”

It’s all perfectly logical. Or maybe it is not.

Does this make sense to you? In a civilized society, whenever there is the merest hint of such a thing as a mass disappearance, don’t you think the authorities should do their utmost to disestablish the facts? Shouldn’t the burden of proof rest with institutions — newspapers, media, governments agencies, and so on? Probably you would agree. But why is that?

If we use the bureaucratic logic of equivocation and moral relativism when it comes to human lives, then anything can take place, because good and bad, right and wrong, have ceased to be at all. The camp manager can say: “the prisoners are fine! Why, they are not really prisoners at all! They are having fun!” And that is how tyrannies grow and holocausts or genocides come to pass, as we tumble down a slippery slope of upside-downness and rationalization. “They’re animals anyways, after all — why not put them to work?”)

We cannot use the same rules that we apply to luggage for human lives. At least not if we are thinking people. Human lives are not inanimate things, after all.

Yet shortly before the story of the missing kids broke in mainstream news, a lawyer of some sort took to Twitter (First, she remarked that the kids are OK — Schrodingers’ kids, remember?But she cannot have interacted with all of them, and didn’t claim to have talked to a single one. So are we to simply take her word for it? That is what most people appeared to do. Critical thinking, remember?

She went on suggest that disappearances are good for the disappeared — better for the government not to able to keep track of people. Maybe vulnerable people can vanish and escape te clutches of the evil Trump administration by existing in limbo. Liberals cheered. How wonderful! Disappearances are not a bad thing after all! Hooray!!

But that is not what a disappearance is, is it? A disappearance is the erasure of a person who already exists, the ploy of authoritarian regimes that find it convenient to  erase their critics,  not the failure to record a person’s existence on a piece of paper or through a computer keyboard into a database in the first place. Surely the difference is obvious enough. And yet no one questioned any of this — because no one appeared to be thinking much at all. Leave the thinking to Artificial Intelligence we are told, computers are so much smarter than humans.

This netherworld of reason is where equivocating logic takes us. When a person can exist and not exist, just like a suitcase to an airline, the distinction between disappearance and liberation disappears, ironically enough. But that is also the line between right and wrong, isn’t it? And in that way, here we see even good and well-meaning people legitimizing and cheering   authoritarianism without even knowing it ,  by endorsing the idiotic, illogical, upside-down idea that disappearances are good for the disappeared. How that must baffle and enrage and amuse the ghosts of Camus, Orwell, Kafka, and Solzhenitsyn.

Here is my third example. It is a smaller, but even more problematic one. Last month that formerly august jornal (now a repository for all the craziest ideas of politically correct liberals, The New York Times, published an article discussing the rise of “faith based politics”. I have seen such a thing in many countries. Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan. Only it isn’t called “faith based politics”. It is better, more accurately, more genuinely called theocracy or religious extremism.

Is “faith based politics” a thing? Does it mean anything different from theocrats aspiring to write laws and alter constitutions to accord with holy books? For the priests to declare God the head of state, but a head of state who only speaks to his people through the priests. If not, then why use such a neologism in the first place? Doesn’t it only muddy the waters, and cheat people of the crucial understanding that Western collapse, thanks to the determination of our ruling elites to give our civilisation into the hands of Islamic medievalism, might well not be altogether different from, say Irani, Afghani, or Pakistani social collapse? After all, Iran, too, was once a liberal, secular nation — and now it is something more like a theocratic oligarchy.

Nations can only fall in so many ways , that is one of the great lesson of history.

The stunning rise of these neologisms is leaving younger generations, not just ill-informed. But uneducated. Unaware. Clueless, to put it a little unkindly. At precisely the time they need to be most aware, sensitive, intelligent. To and of what? To history. To reality. To time and truth. They are not gaining the understanding that societies fall in similar ways. They are not really gleaning the insight that what is taking place in Europe and America is something like a full-blown social collapse at Olympic pace. They are not learning the lessons that Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, Maoist China, Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge, authoritarian Latin America, theocratic Islamism, or tribalist Europe have taught — and how they might apply to them.

Millennials in the west are being taught, that they are still special, different, unique. That they are somehow above everyone else — and so there is little to learn from the world, from history, or from reality.

The authorities rewrite history. They reject reality. And they blind the next generation of leaders to the belief that the system is unassailable, and their place in it is secure.

If people were to see a little more clearly, what would they glimpse? There is a choice of dystopias which await it. Will the collapse of the USA or European Union end in something like Soviet Russia ,  a kind of economic totalitarianism, or succumb to predatory capitalism, a society where quality of life declines, while the economy “grows”?

Or will it be more like Nazi Germany — a proud reich, exiling and exterminating its strangers, aliens, dissidents, an intellectuals? Or will it end up more like Iran — a secular state imploded into theocratic oligarchy, every action and word scrutinized for moral purity and piety? Or will it be a combination of the above?

Those are terrible thoughts to have to think. But when one is on a course of ruin, plunging into the abyss, it does no good to call it “a gravity-based event”. To invent an overly rational neologism that makes it sound less bad than it is, but refuses to acknowledge or accept history, reality, and the world, and instead rewrites history, rejects history, and blinds us to the world.

class=”graf graf–p graf-after–p”>Do I overstate things? Perhaps, perhaps. Or maybe, just maybe, we have been underestimating the plight and peril politically correct thinking and laft wing authoritarianism have been leading us towards. Time and again we are told “trust the machines, Artifical Intelligence is infallible and machines, unencumbered by emotions, past experience and other distractions, will always make better decisions than humans and are leading us to a better world. Our observations should tell us things have become worse, instead of better. Fifty years ago we were being told plastic packaging would be so much better in so many ways than paper and card. Now the world is choking on indestructable plastic where paper and card degrades in a matter of weeks.

Because we have been equivocating and rationalizing very real problems, issues, and challenges away, just like fools would, our minds are failing. Unable to call things what they are, to place things where they belong, to separate right from wrong and good from bad and real from unreal, unable to discriminate. And a mind like that cannot think.

Question. Reason. Judge. Discriminate (yeah it’s not a dirty word, nor is it something that can only be done against or in favour of racial minorities) and never accept a thing is correct just because the voice of authority said so. Or, in the end, live in a world in which two and two makes five if the system says it does.

We must control the senses to be avoid addiction. Senses play an important role in the development of attachments.

The individual who is ruled by the senses becomes attached to objects. From attachment comes desire, from desire jealosy arises. From jealousy comes delusion and from delusion arises the perversion of memory.
From distortion of memory comes loss of intelligence and when intelligence is lost we become addicted. Once addicted we have lost ourselves.

Sweden Same Sex Marriage

June 26, 2017

In the Swedish governments latest insult to all that is sane in western democracy, Sweden’s Fascist Prime Minister Stefan Lofven has announced his government will force all priests in the Swedish church to marry same-sex couples even if they disagree with with same sex marriage.

The Swedish Prime Minister outlined his new politically correct idiocy in a recent interview saying, “no priest in the Swedish Church can refuse to marry same-sex couples.” Mr Lofven argued that it did not matter what the view of the individual priests was and even supports a motion to only allow priests who agree with same-sex marriage the opportunity to be ordained SVT reports.

We wonder if the government, which refuses to prosecute immigrants for rape in the nation that now holds the title of Europe’s rape capital will be planing to impose his new law on Imams and Mullahs too, or are the famous double standards of the left going to apply as usual to Muslims.

The Lutheran Church of Sweden, the official state state church, has a form of parliament with elected officials, which recently committed to performing same-sex marriages.

Though the synod made that pledge, it did not require individual priests to carry out the weddings if they had personal moral objections. The church currently allows priests to refuse to perform weddings, baptisms, and funerals for any reason. Under Lofven’s fascistic law they will be able to refuse to marry mixed sex couples for any reason even if it is simply because the priest does not like the look of them, but not because the couple to be married do not conform to The Biblical definition of who can be married to whom.

The Swedish Prime Minister wants the commitment to perform same sex weddings to include individual priests and says that his party, the ruling Social Democratic Party, agrees with him.

Sweden legalised gay marriage in 2009 but the legislation, justly, did not compel clergy of individual faiths to perform same-sex marriages. Obviously if priests can be compelled by law to marry same sex couples, then by the same criteria they can be forced to marry brothers and sisters.

The Swedish church is known throughout the globe as one of the most slavishly devoted to politically correct dogma in the Christian world. The church’s stance on many issues has raised eyebrows from many outsiders.

One incident involving the lesbian Bishop of Stockholm Eva Brunne caused a large controversy when she announced that she would be taking down crosses in churches in order to give Muslims a place to pray instead. The sheer stupidity of this is gobsmacking as is the ignorance.

Other members of the church have also been criticised for their statements including priests Peter Englund and Helena Myrstener who said that Swedes should stop celebrating their “poisonous” national holiday.

The pair, who come from the heavily migrant-populated city of Malmo in southern Sweden, argued, “Patriotism has its roots in the patriarchal thinking that celebrates traditional masculinity as strength, competition, inequality, and reduces men to soldiers, and women to mothers. It goes without saying that this does not create good conditions for a world without borders.”

So from that can we conclude the Swedish church approves of the gang rapes (1),(2),(3), of Christian women that have been rife in the country because hooray for multiculturalism. The examples we link to are only three among many.)

Later this year the General Synod of the Church will have elections in which the anti-mass migration populist Sweden Democrats (SD) will field candidates. Sweden will also have a national election in 2018 and recent YouGov polling shows the SD as the largest and most popular party in the country.

However we expect some establishment stitch up to deny the will of the people and preserve the status quo. The elites would be well suited by the social chaos that must ensue if the current policy of flooding European nations with ignorant, illiterate immigrants who have no intention of integrating into European societies or even respecting the laws and traditions of their host nations. A breakdown of law and order in working class areas would not affect the wealthy very much, and ignorant people are much more easily manipulated.

They thought that she should therefore be raped and her teenage son killed. Sometime during the night, the victim was awakened by the Iraqi as he raped her. The woman managed to break free and locate a train attendant. At first, the woman did not want to call the police. “She felt sorry for him [the rapist] … and was afraid he would be deported back to Iraq.”
