The Two Core Problems

0

‪I think the two greatest problems Western Civilization is now facing are the fetishization of victimhood and the infantilization of grown adults who are fully capable of making their own life choices.‬

‪We’d rather look down on people instead of looking up.  We favor pity over admiration.  And look where that’s led us: We’ve built an intersectional caste system out of other people’s past misdeeds and imaginary grievances.‬

The barbarians aren’t at the gates.  They’re right in here with us.  Western Civilization isn’t going to fall to outside invaders — it’s crumbling from within.

Vexation

My greatest vexation is the “opioid epidemic”.  People lack the moral character to take responsibility for their addictions, so they expect the government to step in and relieve them of that responsibility.  Politicians on both sides of the aisle are more than happy to oblige for the PR points, which has led to the systemic persecution of doctors who prescribe opioid pain medicines.

The media turns a blind eye to the disgusting tactics being employed because they were largely responsible for manufacturing this “crisis” in the first place.  (Hell, they make martyrs of these cretins!)

Nobody gives a shit about the people for whom these drugs (many of which are indeed safe for long-term use) are medically necessary.

But I suppose illness and infirmity are ugly, whereas addiction has become fetishized by pop culture.

FACEBOOK: Be Better

>Friend posts viral Anifa meme.

>I point out that he obviously hadn’t watched the video.

>Friend replies that there were multiple videos and tells me I need to do more Internetz research.

>I (politely) ask friend if he can provide a video clip of those kids doing a single thing mentioned in the meme.

>Friend immediately unfriends me.

Seriously, people — are we not even *pretending* to care about truth anymore? And you wonder why I check out for years at a time?  It’s because I truly cannot relate to what’s going on inside your heads.

We used to have opinions. Our *own* opinions.  We understood the difference between opinion and fact, and we used to be able to disagree with other opinions without despising the people who held them.

Your hatred frightens me.

Mock outrage is not a substitute for moral courage, and the harsh reality is that you aren’t even impressing one another.

You aren’t virtue signaling to elevate yourselves in the eyes of your fellow NPCs — you’re virtue signaling because you’re so damned anxious about being judged by your pale skin and privileged Northern Virginian upbringing.  Which is unsurprising, considering how dedicated you are to demonizing both.

In the words of someone you all hate (yet have never read):

“You can fake virtue for an audience.  You can’t fake it in your own eyes.  Your ego is your strictest judge.”

Take a long hard look in the mirror and ask yourselves who it is you think you’re fighting and what exactly you think you are fighting for.

BE BETTER.

Not a Good Month For Friendship

NOTE: Update to follow (eventually, I swear), because there’s a Part II to the genderqueef shit, and it’s seriously one of the craziest things I have ever seen from the Regressive Left.  Which is saying quite a damned bit.



October has not been a month for friendship.  My friends are dropping like flies — and it’s largely the fault of Lindsey Graham.  He has released from within me an utter abhorrence for unethical shams.

About a dozen people have unfriended me on Facebook since the Christine Ford farce, and I’m pretty sure the majority of those who didn’t are no longer following me.

For the most part, I have been silently unfriended.  By whom, it’s hard to tell, which suggests no major loss.  But here are two cases in which I played an active role in the dissolution of a friendship — for better or for worse.
