Thomas Muller: Besides funding and backing LGBT activism and the Race Industry, a large portion of the Zellerbach Family Foundation's operating budget is devoted to encouraging mass immigration and refugee resettlement into the United States.[Ron: WHY?!].
Ron: Ask yourself: Why are Jews who constitute less than 1.8% of USans, advocating LGBTQism and spending lots of money propagandising USans in the art of gender fluidity and queerdom etc? WHY aren't they living in their professed and essentially apartheid homeland and advocating such morally, socially and politically destructive attitudes and behaviours there?!
Ron: This video is well worth your time. Steve Turley explains why virtue signalling has replaced virtue in modern society.
For instance, referring to CS Lewis'"The Abolition of Man" he notes that If we do not have virtue then we cannot be shocked to find there is a lack of virtue in our society. One of his (Lewis's) phrases is that "We can't amputate and then demand the function. We can't teach our students that truth is relative and be shocked that politicians lie to us... We can't teach our students that all morality is relative and situational and then be shocked to find out that our bankers and corporate executives are making their decisions on nothing else but greed and expediency. We can't teach our students that beauty is in the eye of the beholder solely, and then be shocked to find a urinal is part of an art exhibit... This is the fundamental problem... We are teaching students that virtue no longer matters because there is no divine meaning and purpose. If there's no divine meaning and purpose there's no wisdom to cultivate. If there's no wisdom there is no virtue. There is no objective basis with which to align my loves. You like babies, I like ham sandwiches. Let's move on... Then the only way you get people to conform at a mass level is not by appealing to a sense of truth and beauty and wisdom. It's not appealing to a sense of the highest aspirations of what it means to be human, lovely and noble and praise worthy that invokes my loves and draws them and orders them around an economy of 'goods'. No, that lack of virtue now, the lack of virtue is replaced with virtue signalling...
If we are not taught to make our decisions freely, as a fruit of a wise and true and good life, then the only way we are going to get people to ethically conform in our social life is by compulsion, coercion and manipulation.
This year, the World Health Organization no longer regards Transgenderism as a mental disorder; however, video game addiction is regarded by the same organization as a mental health disorder - and various other groups are lobbying for the WHO to switch the label into disease. The second Dark Age will come about primarily, in my humble opinion, via cultural collapse. I'll end this piece by quoting Marcus Aurelius: "The purpose of life is not to be on the side of the majority; but to escape the ranks of the insane."- Serban V C Enache
Despite Ofsted declaring the lessons to be "age-appropriate", some families have claimed that classes teaching LGBT education to their children are in contradiction to their religious outlook and are not appropriate for students of ages 4 to 11.
A UK judge ruled on Tuesday that protests from parents frustrated that their children are too young to be taught about LGBT politics have been permanently banned outside the school...Following a five-day hearing, Justice Warby stipulated that the restriction "does not amount to unlawful discrimination against the protesters"...He explained that protesters had "misunderstood and misrepresented what is being taught at the school", and that the new lessons were not "promoting homosexuality" nor were they teaching sex education, as was alleged by the opposition. - sputniknews.com
A new book billed as a "playful guide" teaches children how to summon demons for personal benefit. It's carried by major booksellers, too, such as Barnes & Noble, Walmart, and Target. Amazon sells it as well, even though the lit leviathan has banned a work critical of Islam and one geared toward the elimination of unwanted same-sex attraction... So if you're looking to introduce your kids to "Devil worship," as Breaking Israel Newsputs it, know that the book's "publishers try to turn the act of summoning demons into a kid-friendly activity[,] saying: ‘summoning demons has never been so much fun,'" the site relates, quoting the sellers' "about" section. (Hat tip: WND.com.)..
Now, if there were a "playful guide" to "kid friendly" "gentle Nazis," would it be sloughed off as educational entertainment?
Alex Newman: Burke, a "mindfulness" advocate and educator, also promoted the idea that children must be taught to listen to their "heart." But for Christians, that is more than a little problematic. In Jeremiah 17:9, the Bible warns that the heart is "deceitful above all things" and "desperately wicked." In the New Testament, Mark 7:21 warns that "out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders."
These statements are Talmudic disinformation. The Christian religion was not established by Jesus the Christ who incarnated here to teach divine truths that had been lost over millenia and corrupted by Pharisees and others. The Pharisees forced the Romans to crucify Jesus to silence his message and wanted to eradicate his teaching and so they influenced Roman Emperors to establish the Christian religion, deleting from the Bible and Christian doctrine many core truths, like reincarnation, taught by Christ Jesus. Pharisees and neo-Pharisees have also distorted much of what remained. We learn truth via the heart not the head. Humans are spirit beings having myriad physical experiences in the Creation to explore the materium for the Creator by learning about life the universe and everything from scratch. Our spirit is MIND and its connection to our physical body (meat suit) is via the heart not the brain which is merely a biological computer. For background on the corruption of the teachings of Jesus the Christ see eg: Judaism and Christianity - Two Thousand Years of Lies - 60 Years of State Terrorism -http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/Judaism-and-Christianity---Two-Thousand-Years-of-Lies---60-Years-of-State-Terrorism.shtml
Alex Newman: The ACLJ noted that Buddhist principles are "clearly" embedded in the mindfulness programs being imposed on school children -principles such as the "observance of all thoughts and feelings without judgment; the belief that life is cyclical and humans are inherently good; and the idea that we are magnificent and all happiness can be achieved through self-discovery and self-reliance."
Ron: This is true save that: (1) 'life is cyclical' only in the sense that human spirits need myriad incarnations to learn and master the truth about life, the universe and everything in order to become ONE with the Creator. And (2): 'self reliance and self discovery' need to be understood to mean that our spirit discovers truth by relying upon knowledge flowing from our indwelling spark of Creator consciousness rather than from external sources.
British academic union says you can now ‘identify' as black and disabled
Remember Rachel Dolezal, the white women who pretended to be black and became an NAACP official?Turns out she was just ahead of her time.
Now the Universities and Colleges Union in Great Britain is seriously arguing that people should be able to identify as any race they want.
The union for professors and other academics put out its official stance in a recent report which said:
"Our rules commit us to ending all forms of discrimination, bigotry and stereotyping. UCU has a long history of enabling members to self-identify whether that is being black, disabled, LGBT+ or women."
US government bans sleeping at the office
Apparently there's a problem with US government employees sleeping on the job... and the problem is so bad that Uncle Sam felt the need to explicitly ban taking naps at the office.
Beginning in Grade 3, the Pollyanna "Racial Literacy Curriculum" asks students to become activists in order to achieve leftist goals. The 3rd Grade chapter is entitled "Stories of Activism - How One Voice Can Change a Community." The expected result is for students to understand "how we can be agents of communal, social, political, and environmental change."
Does an 8-year-old need to decide on activism at such a young age? What if a student doesn't agree with being an "agent" of "communal, social, political, and environmental change"? Does the student fail? Does a conservative or capitalist or individualist student learn that his/her ideas are inherently wrong because the curriculum says so? What kind of negligent school puts such pressure on young children? - Jim Hoft
One of the "welcoming" pieces of curriculum that the NEA and the HRC have already introduced is a video entitled, "Back to School for Non-Binary Youth," which teaches schoolchildren that there's no such thing as gender.
Discussing topics like "gender pronouns," the propaganda film attempts to make the case that gender is a social construct, and that there's no such thing as male or female, or any other type of definitive human biology.
In the film, children are seen lamenting the fact that their parents don't already know about all of these concepts. The suggestion is then made that schoolchildren exposed to this propaganda will simply have to "educate" their parents after watching it. - Ethan Huff
One example he gave from Columbia was of the pressure he felt to admit a transgender applicant who auditioned to play Juliet in William Shakespeare's classic play...
Serban also explained that at a meeting convened by the dean of the art school when a professor retired, the dean said there were "too many white professors, too many heterosexual men" and that it would be best to choose a person of a minority group, or a woman, or a gay man to replace the departing teacher. - Jim Hoft
"It's especially ironic that Sex Week gets Harvard's imprimatur even as some of the men of #MeToo are appearing in courts.Sex Week promotes the same deformed view of the human person that led such men to harassment and assault in the first place: one dominated by pornographic narratives according to which human beings are always and everywhere available for any sexual permutation, no matter how problematic to their psyches or inimical to their health," she said. "It's past time for these travesties to be shut down - and for the corporate sponsors of this toxic worldview to be ostracized like any other companies promoting public harm." - Mary Eberstadt
Henry Kamens: Mark Twain once said, "If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you're mis-informed." But the wise Mark Twain could also not imagine the dystopian world we live in today, where the only alternative is not to read anything and not to trust anything, as much of news has been turned into mindless entertainment... The lesson to others is clear: challenge the global US military empire and you will be destroyed.
Ron: This superficial assessment is part of the problem in that it reinforces the blurring of truth telling by the so-called 'more independent media' by its ignorant, lazy and/or cowardly regurgitation of the commonplace conventional wisdom that the issue is merely the US empire's militarism. Today even Blind Freddy must realise that US militarism and the global dystopia in which USans and the rest of the planet live is created by Talmudic global control of usurious banking and through it the Talmudic corporatist control of most governments and trans-national corporations. See eg: How Interlinked Corporations Rule The World. - http://abundanthope.net/pages/Political_Information_43/How-Interlinked-Corporations-Rule-The-World.shtml
Henry Kamens:However, the greatest threat is over the organization of society and the lack of "thinking beings." The system, including how education is allocated makes sure that those who question the most are afforded the least conducive environment for learning.
Henry Kamens: A democracy depends on the individual voter making an intelligent and rational choice for what he regards as his enlightened self-interest in any given circumstance.But attempts are being made to bypass that "rational choice" by appealing to unconscious forces below the surface - below the level of choice and reason.
Ron: In any event any democracy based on universal suffrage of everyone of any arbitrarily nominated age but especially enfranchising teenagers and others, regardless of intellect and experience, is extremely problematic. WHY? Because such people are easily influenced by oligarchs whose wealth enables them to own the MSM and other media and to buy the services of politicians, bureaucrats, police, security services and the judiciary et al. To have any chance of success governance arrangements need to have a local, decentralised republican focus that restricts voting eligibility to adults of at least 25 years of age and younger people who have demostrated a real committment to community welfare.
Almost every last college and university is partly or totally funded by government, and with government funding comes government control of the means of production, the very definition of socialism. Almost all university professors are therefore essentially government bureaucrats and, like all bureaucrats, they understand that the way to survive is to never, ever, break the rules or rock the boat, no matter how rotten the rules may be. They understand that if they do, the Red Army of Mediocrities will take its revenge, fire them if possible, or at least never again give them a merit pay raise. .................All of this creates a socialistic system of monopoly control of "higher" education that is now firmly in the hands of Leftist ideologues and a large army of uneducated, academic frauds and imposters who are sworn enemies of free speech, academic freedom, and freedom of inquiry. Thomas DiLorenzo
What is happening all around cannot go on. It is time for people to speak up and become vocal. A continuation of this behavior will only quicken the pace at which the decency of Western civilization crumbles. As a societal family, it is on us to take care of the children, and one must only look around to see that the kids are not alright. Sophia Narwitz
